On the SJW Super Bolw Controversy

Every now and again, people will freak out over the internet about something that seems completely innocent and, quite frankly, stupid only to have something completely unrelated and uncontroversial happen and then the focus switched to entirely different, yet somehow just as stupid, thing. It never ceases to amaze me of people’s ability to take something that is the least controversial topic in the world and somehow twist and mangle it into something that is so far fetched and ridiculous that you, as a person who values logic and has a great deal of common sense, spend hours upon hours thinking of the mental gymnastics one must go through to arrive to the conclusion that the mass on the left or the right have come to. That very thing happened this year in the events following Super Bowl 51.

Football, or any sport, really, should be one of those areas where politics and other controversial topics stay away. Sure, a football player or coach can express his own political opinion that you may or may not agree with, but there is a certain need for many people on the left and the right to see something that is completely harmless and uncontroversial and make it the biggest thing in the world (you know, only for a couple of days because of how short the attention span of the average American is). Following Super Bowl 51, many SJW nitwits decided to take to Twitter and somehow link the Patriots’ huge comeback to win the game, which is, lets be honest, one of the greatest comebacks in NFL history, to racism in the United States of America. Some even resulted to link it to the presidential election, the Falcons playing the role of the never-can-do-wrong Hillary Clinton and the Patriots taking on the role of the evil Hitler-like (even though he has yet to advocate for the mass extinction of any race or religious group) Donald Trump.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I can’t stand Donald Trump. He’s a sleazy pathological liar who pretended to be some populist but is really a corporate stooge in disguise (yes, America got doped for the third election in a row into voting for a fake populist) and an all around slime ball. I didn’t vote for him and would have never voted for him. Hillary Clinton (though she was still an evil) was the lesser of two evils, by far. And I hate to break it to you, but I can tell you from the experience of living through both of these “controversial” events that they’re different. For starters, the Atlanta Falcons actually earned their NFC championship and didn’t have it handed to them by sleazy undemocratic tactics like a certain Democratic presidential nominee (***cough, cough, Hilary Clinton, cough, cough***). On top of that, the New England Patriots, while extremely unpopular, are a hell of a sports franchise. Donald Trump was a mess when he ran and is still a mess today (we’re talking about the man who freaked out when someone made comments his tiny toddler hands). So, I’m not seeing the conspiracy theory here.

Some could be upset because Bill Belicheck and Robert Craft supported Donald Trump. The simple fact of the matter is that this is just as stupid of a reason to get this upset over anything. To put things lightly, people are allowed to have their own opinions and disagree. Yes, I know, it might be hard to accept, but it is true. And just because someone has a different political opinion than you, it does not make them racist or sexist by default. For the love of god, it was even a black man for the Patriots who scored the winning touchdown. This isn’t racism; it was a goddamn football game that people are bitching over when there is no real sign of racism there. They are making racism out to be bigger than it actually is because, lets be honest, it isn’t that big of an issue on a systemic level. Yes, racism absolutely still exists (the KKK and Black Lives Matter are proof or racist organizations) but it more of an individual issue than a nation wide one.

When You Give A Girl A Dad

You give her everything

They say that any male can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad. That dads are just the people that created the child, so to speak, but rather, dads raise their children to be the best they can be. Further, when you give a little girl a dad, you give her much more than a father; you give her the world in one man.

When you give a girl a dad, you give her a rock.

Life is tough, and life is constantly changing directions and route. In a world that's never not moving, a girl needs something stable. She needs something that won't let her be alone; someone that's going to be there when life is going great, and someone who is going to be there for her when life is everything but ideal. Dads don't give up on this daughters, they never will.

When you give a girl a dad, you give her a role model.

If we never had someone to look up to, we would never have someone to strive to be. When you give a little girl someone to look up to, you give her someone to be. We copy their mannerisms, we copy their habits, and we copy their work ethic. Little girls need someone to show them the world, so that they can create their own.

When you give a girl a dad, you give her the first boy she will ever love.

And I'm not really sure someone will ever be better than him either. He's the first guy to take your heart, and every person you love after him is just a comparison to his endless, unmatchable love. He shows you your worth, and he shows you what your should be treated like: a princess.

When you give a girl a dad, you give her someone to make proud.

After every softball game, soccer tournament, cheerleading competition, etc., you can find every little girl looking up to their dads for their approval. Later in life, they look to their dad with their grades, internships, and little accomplishments. Dads are the reason we try so hard to be the best we can be. Dads raised us to be the very best at whatever we chose to do, and they were there to support you through everything. They are the hardest critics, but they are always your biggest fans.

When you give a girl a dad, you give her a credit card.

It's completely true. Dads are the reason we have the things we have, thank the Lord. He's the best to shop with too, since he usually remains outside the store the entire time till he is summoned in to forge the bill. All seriousness, they always give their little girls more than they give themselves, and that's something we love so much about you.

When you give a girl a dad, you give her a shoulder to cry on.

When you fell down and cut yourself, your mom looked at you and told you to suck it up. But your dad, on the other hand, got down on the ground with you, and he let you cry. Then later on, when you made a mistake, or broke up with a boy, or just got sad, he was there to dry your tears and tell you everything was going to be okay, especially when you thought the world was crashing down. He will always be there to tell you everything is going to be okay, even when they don't know if everything is going to be okay. That's his job.

When you give a girl a dad, you give her a lifelong best friend.

My dad was my first best friend, and he will be my last. He's stood by me when times got tough, he carried me when I just couldn't do it anymore, and he yelled at me when I deserved it; but the one thing he has never done was give up on me. He will always be the first person I tell good news to, and the last person I ever want to disappoint. He's everything I could ever want in a best friend and more.

Dads are something out of a fairytale. They are your prince charming, your knight in shinny amour, and your fairy godfather. Dads are the reasons we are the people we are today; something that a million "thank you"' will never be enough for.

8 Types Of People Fetuses Grow Into That 'Pro-Lifers' Don't Give 2.5 Shits About

It is easy to fight for the life of someone who isn't born, and then forget that you wanted them to be alive when you decide to hate their existence.


For those in support of the #AbortionBans happening all over the United States, please remember that the unborn will not always be a fetus — he or she may grow up to be just another person whose existence you don't support.

The fetus may grow up to be transgender — they may wear clothes you deem "not for them" and identify in a way you don't agree with, and their life will mean nothing to you when you call them a mentally unstable perv for trying to use the bathroom.

The fetus may grow up to be gay — they may find happiness and love in the arms of someone of the same gender, and their life will mean nothing to you when you call them "vile" and shield your children's eyes when they kiss their partner.

The fetus may grow up and go to school — to get shot by someone carrying a gun they should have never been able to acquire, and their life will mean nothing to you when your right to bear arms is on the line.

The fetus may be black — they may wear baggy pants and "look like a thug", and their life will mean nothing to you when you defend the police officer who had no reason to shoot.

The fetus may grow up to be a criminal — he might live on death row for a heinous crime, and his life will mean nothing to you when you fight for the use of lethal injection to end it.

The fetus may end up poor — living off of a minimum wage job and food stamps to survive, and their life will mean nothing to you when they ask for assistance and you call them a "freeloader" and refuse.

The fetus may end up addicted to drugs — an experimentation gone wrong that has led to a lifetime of getting high and their life will mean nothing to you when you see a report that they OD'd and you make a fuss about the availability of Narcan.

The fetus may one day need an abortion — from trauma or simply not being ready, and her life will mean nothing to you as you wave "murderer" and "God hates you" signs as she walks into the office for the procedure.

* * *

Do not tell me that you are pro-life when all of the above people could lose their lives in any way OUTSIDE of abortion and you wouldn't give 2.5 shits.

You fight for the baby to be born, but if he or she is gay or trans, you will berate them for who they are or not support them for who they love.

You fight for the baby to be born, but if he or she is poor or addicted, you will refuse the help they desperately need or consider their death a betterment of society.

You fight for the baby to be born, but when the used-to-be-classroom-of-fetuses is shot, you care more about your access to firearms than their lives.

It is easy to pretend you care about someone before they are even born, and easy to forget their birth was something you fought for when they are anything other than what you consider an ideal person.
