Just So You Know

you-are-stupid-tee-shirtyez-im-pawsitivcan't fix stupidThe state of ‘OMG, are there even words for it?’ that my country has fallen into, here’s a little info thingy for you:

Fired for blogging about homophones.

If you don’t know what a homophone is, here’s a bit:

“a word pronounced the same as another but differing in meaning, whether spelled the same way or not, as heir and air.”

The article says the school was worried they would be associated with (OMG, the horror) homosexuality. Well, by that criteria, no one there can then say homo-sapien, or even homogenized, although that one is pronounced just a bit differently. “You know, Fred, that really-shaken-together-well milk we have nowadays is great and all, but I prefer the old kind where the cream came to the top.”

Is it something in the water? We seem to be getting more idiotic, less tolerant, more religiously-fanatical, more eager and willing to hate, repress, disrespect, discriminate against any one who isn’t exactly like we (not me, that OTHER we) are. It is making me ill, people. Please tell me how to fix this.
