Fandom Threesomes

Is it okay to post a stupid where most of the stupids are anonymous wusses?

If not, feel free to shout at me, macro me, delete this, whatever.

Over on fandomsecrets (yes, pretty much stupid in concept), a secret is posted by someone thinking about propositioning her favourite celebrity couple for a threesome, as she often sees them at her local shop. (Secret 155)

Since I too would dearly love a threesome with Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof, the couple in question, I've been reading the comments, and was delighted to see a number of loonies jump in to say this is perfectly reasonable behaviour.

On this thread, onelittlesleep bravely defends sanity to anonymous commenters who say things like:

So? They're just people. Being famous doesn't make anyone special. I think they can deal with ocassional momentary discomfort in their cushy Hollywood lives.

It's small, but I think some of it is pretty fucking stupid.

A post about Mccain and rape jokes results in mon_lapin recalling a charming story:


Someone made a rape "joke" and someone who had been raped got all you shouldn't joke about that.
And everyone was like get over it, it's a joke (and the person who made the "joke" had been raped as well as a few of the people who told the chick to stfu).


What are the odds?

She then proceeds to inform rape victims not to take what happened to them 'so fucking seriously', shares her view that people choose to be traumatized by rape, and then makes a totally logical parallel between women 'getting over' rape and an addict quitting drugs.

Oh, dont mind me. I'l be over here woo sa-ing.

Veggie Tales = SRS Business

Over on 0hyourgod, shutterbuginfl poses a few questions surrounding the animated series "Veggie Tales" (1).

squidb0i, not realizing the dangerous, hidden Christian agenda of Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, and Junior Asparagus, comments "Wait, that shit's religious? *shakes head* Apparently nothing, not even vegetables, is safe from co-opting for theist meme-war." (2)

And with that one question, a comment war and an exchange of online dictionary definitions break out.

First to respond in the comment war is shutterbuginfl, who turned on her sarcasm meter and responded saying "Yes, Bob the Tomato explains how God loves us and wants us to be good people." (3).

squidb0i retorts back that this is dangerous because vegetables who teach children good morals would gain a warped view that "an imaginary alpha male in the sky loves us...and...wants us to be good people..." and bakes in a fear of things, like "xenophobia, such as fear of the gay agenda" (4) (5).

Wait, why are they worried about teaching children about God? Shouldn't we be more concerned that children will get the impression that vegetables talk? Well, that's beside the point. Back to the entry.......

shutterbuginfl is quick to respond, with her dictionary in hand. She points out that squidb0i was wrong in his defintion of xenophobia, which refers to a fear or hatred of strangers or foreigners. She points out homophobia would have been the correct term to use. Also joining in with their dictionary in hand (well, dictionary.com on their browser) is moonwolf23 defining xenophobia. (6) (7)

The definition wars continue for many comments, defining such words "homophobia", "foreign", "arachnaphobia", "heteronormative", "phobia", and even exploring the Christian views on homosexuality . (8), (9), (10), (11), (12)

Possibly accepting defeat, squidb0i eventually disappears from the definition wars. Perhaps he left to prepare for two new wars which had just been started:

* Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer..."Rudolph is a child-targeted meme-weapon". (13)

* Birthdays..."Gifts and celebrations of an individual should be personally relevant, not assembly lined year after year, stripped of meaning, and commercialized". (14)

Yes, there are deep, Christian agendas and the like hidden in a deer with a red nose and birthdays. Didn't you know?

FYI- BOTH squidb0i AND shutterbuginfl HAVE APPEARED IN THIS POST. THE WAR OF COPYING-AND-PASTING DICTIONARY DEFINITIONS AND WIKIPEDIA ENTRIES HAS CONTINUED. ALSO ADMITTED HEREIN, squidb0i HAS NEVER SEEN "VEGGIE TALES".....THS SUBJECT HE WAS DEBATING ABOUT
