@PaladinQuinn an interesting thing happened when I got old enough for this to be true: I, elementary school dropout, am dating a professor of political science
so not only do I get to hear reports of how all the kids keep dunking on the one increasingly-defeated alt-righty debatey guy, I get to actually be the secret leftist conspiracy that's sneaking my tolerance propaganda into the lesson plan of the liberal professors (or, one of them, anyway)

"Nihilist dad jokes" is a pretty good way to describe my entire sense of humor lately.
For fuck's sake, straight people. Call out homophobia. Every time. *especially* when it's in private. Especially around only other straight people.
No, I mean it, *every time.* It's gotta be you who does it, and you *cannot* let it slip past you. Not once. Not to be polite. Not because it's not your business. Not because no one's getting hurt. We're fucking getting hurt because we know you don't care.
(and if you are already defending, here, I made this for you and I love you! )
Eden is a lie we were told when we were old enough to reach for things
they did not want to give us.
Eden is a place we have
all walked from,
and gotten punished for it.
Eden was not a gift, again and again,
we befriended the snake
warned us kindly. Again-
and again we put the apple in our mouths
because we know
we can’t stay here, even
if we choke on the outcome.
