Teddy very stupidly weighs into the bathroom debate for no reason

The full title of this post is:

Teddy very stupidly and without thinking weighs into the bathroom debate for no fucking reason despite knowing that this is a very bad idea because he's stupid. He's not even drunk, he's not even drinking, he's just an idiot.

The laws saying transgendered people can not use the bathroom for their gender.

Teddy's Conclusion:

1 - Why do we have 2 bathrooms one for each gender? I don't see why, and after all of this bullshit, I'm starting to think we should not. Replace the 2 washrooms with a "public washroom" and a "private stall" where the latter is just one shitter, sort of like disabled toilets in some locations around where I live. None of these shitty metal walls, an actual separate room. This way anyone who need to take a piss can do so in the public washroom and if they don't feel comfortable in a public washroom, they can go into the private stall. In fact you can have multiple private stalls if you want.

2 - I was not aware we even had bathrooms based on gender. I'd always presumed the bathrooms were based on sex. This does not come from any hatred or discrimination, it's just what I'd assumed when I saw "male" and "female" on the door. Also don't give me any fucking lectures about how such assumptions are etc etc etc, go re-read my first conclusion. After actually thinking about this for 5 fucking seconds I've concluded that this "debate" is a bunch of nonsense, and I now support gender neutral washrooms.

3 - I'm still not convinced that "gender" exists. It's some sort of social norm, like honour or prestige. Frankly, all 3 of those things seem like made up labels that people can and do apply to themselves and others. I am "he" because I've been "he" for 30 years and I fail to see a reason to change. If someone asked me my gender though I'd be liable to tell them I don't have one because I don't give a fuck. I understand that some people may treasure their gender, and you are free to do so, but I want nothing to do with the concept of "gender" because whenever it comes up it is because of stories like this bathroom bullshit; or in short, I never see "gender" in a positive context, only negative, and always negative. I don't want anything to do with "gender" and this post is my washing myself of the entire concept. It me telling "gender" to fuck off, and never come back. It's me saying that "gender" needs to leave me the fuck alone, because every fucking time "gender" comes up, all hell breaks loose, and people start accusing each other of being fucking hitler. This fucking concept keeps coming up, it's almost as though "gender" is stalking me in the dark waiting to pounce; my friends get impacted by it, my communities want to debate it. FUCK. It's enough. I'd be happy to never heard this goddamn word again in my entire fucking life. I have seriously and literally seen the word "murder" used in more positive situations than "gender" because you can at least "murder" a dictator. "gender" only shows up before, in, or around, some very very bad things.

4 - I've already offended and pissed off people on both sides of this so-called "debate" just by making this post. I don't plan to ever link to it in any way, but people will find it when they find my personal blog, and I will get comments from people attacking me for years to come. That's what "gender" does, it turns people into raging idiots. Fuck all that. I've wanted to write down all my thoughts in one place before being interrupted by someone else's righteous indignation on the issue. My fucking blog. My fucking righteous indignation.

And that's about it really.

Discrimination because of appearance.


This news story is about a woman who was discriminated against for being too attractive.

First off, just a reminder. Fuck. This is my personal blog. Don't expect the same thoughtful and measured kind of posting that you find on my professional blog.

Secondly, people who are "ugly" suffer due to appearance based discrimination. Should they? No. But from everything we know about human psychology, we are almost certain to never be free of this.

Thirdly, lets not hold any punches here, if you get discriminated against because of your appearance, you are hurt by that, and as a result, you suffer.

Fourthly, lets also not lie, this happened to a "hot" woman, whereas the other kind of discrimination happens to women (or men) who are "not hot enough"

If you suffer because you are too hot, I am unable to feel any sympathy. People suffer because they are not hot enough every day. This is a case analogous of the 1% being treated like everyone else. To "hot people", I say this. "That's what it feels like, welcome to the club"

It's not right that this happened, nor is it right when it happens to "ugly" people. Now if you want this to stop, how about you work to stop discrimination for all people rather than just for people with big boobs.

edited to add: if you don't think that "ugly" people get discriminated against, I ask you how many "ugly" people you see working at hooters. Such discrimination is wrong, it's always wrong, but to kick up a fuss over an isolated case by someone who so clearly has a 'privileged position' in this case, about just this particular case smacks of selfish ignorance. Either help to end discrimination over appearance for everyone, or stop being so full of yourself.

Morning Routine

Some people seem weirded out that I have a morning routine, so I wanted to detail what that routine was.

Note that these steps can be done in any order. The order I'm writing them in is semi-random.

1 - Check youtube. Check all the videos that were posted while I was sleeping. Usually talk-shows. Find the videos I want to watch (things without guests or music) and save those to watch later.Before watching them, organize them from shortest to longest, so I can knock off as many videos as possible before deciding I need a break from watching too many videos. I'd rather have a few long videos in my list all day than many short ones.

2 - Check my webcomics. I can provide a list for those curious. All must be checked!

3 - Check twitter to see what's gone on in the world while I've been sleeping. I follow a lot of reporters and people who pay attention to news and current events, so if something happens, I know about it rather quickly.

4 - Check the news websites to see if anything did not make it to twitter. Plus my interests are unique.

5 - Check with online games I'm playing, right now that's simcountry.

6 - Check the forums I post at, see if anything new has come up, and, for places where I'm admin, see if I have any duties to perform (like banning commercial spammers)

7 - When done these 6 steps, go back though all of them to see if anything new has popped up while I was doing the other steps. If this takes longer than 5 minutes, repeat it. Normally the "final check" takes about 15 seconds of clicking a few bookmarks to ensure there is nothing new to deal with, and that's that.

When done, I can move on to whatever. Taking a poop maybe? Making breakfast? No those are not related you disgusting little...

looking for a word

sometimes I look for a word.

in particular, this one time I was looking for a word that would fit here:

...would __________ the way ... (that someone might make a decision)

sort of like impact, change, or effect.

sort of like "educate"

sounds really professional (IE if you use this word you sound smart)

The word I was looking for was "inform"

Question for GCP Grey

I really don't understand what takes so long about writing a script. Especially for an episode that's, for example, 5 minutes long. You have 30 days of work (5 weeks, 6 days a week) to put into this. Lets say you only work half the day (4 hours) and only half of your days on your videos (15) that's still 60 hours. Lets round that down to 50 cause I'm nice. 50 hours of work. HOURS. 3,000 minutes 180,000 seconds Your UK video contains 8235 characters in the transcript, and this includes time codes, so it's actually far less. Let me be nice and round that up to 10,000 how... how..... how on earth can it take you 18 seconds to type each letter?

Back in 2009 or so

I made this map:


Showing people in the UK what would happen if... well it was a crazy idea.

See, the Bloc takes 50 or so seats in Quebec. Everyone knows this. The SNP meanwhile only ever takes 6 or so seats. It's been this way for years, and will never change.

And so I made this map. Showing what would happen if the SNP was more like the Bloc - it won lots of seats.

And so here we are in 2016.

With the Bloc taking around 4 or 10 seats at election time
And the SNP taking 50 or so.
