In case you need a head start, I’ve written up some suggested scripts for talking to your buddies:
- “Ted, are you as good at respecting other people’s personal space as you are at baking? This angel food cake is phenomenal.”
- “Man oh man, Bumgarner is on fire! Hey by the way, have y’all ever promised to kill someone on Twitter? I haven’t, because that would make me a garbage** person.“
- “I wanted to let you know that I’ll be actively not driving people out of their own homes by threatening to photograph their mutilated bodies for the foreseeable future, and also I can’t come to pasta night.”
Let’s all start reminding our friends not to be garbage people! If your friends are garbage people, tell them not to be. If they keep being garbage people, go ahead and stop being friends with them! I know, its scary. How do you make new friends? Will anyone else ever love you like those sexist racists did? Trust me. Your quality of existence will skyrocket when you leave the trash behind.
I’m all for diverse views. However, that doesn’t mean you have to accept all opinions as valid and equally worthy of your time, energy, and patience! Guess what? The “view” that women should stop complaining about equality and instead go make everyone sandwiches is NOT A VALID ARGUMENT and is NOT WORTHY of my or anyone’s attention.
