Nation’s Women Clarify They Harbor No Secret Desire To See Colleagues’, Acquaintances’, Strangers’ Genitals

1 Share

WASHINGTON—Explaining that anyone with any lingering doubts could rest assured that the answer was an unequivocal “no,” women across the nation on Thursday clarified that they harbor no secret desire to see any of their colleagues’, acquaintances’, or complete strangers’ genitals. “We would like to state this as unambiguously as possible to anyone who might still be confused on this matter: We have never and will never want you to show us your sexual organs,” read a joint statement by the nation’s 125 million women, which went on to emphasize that coworkers, friends, friends of friends, and random people on the street or public transportation were in no way authorized to display their private parts to women under any conditions and for all eternity. “We categorically decline to view unsolicited photos and videos of genitalia, and we most definitely do not wish to be exposed to them in ...

Sure, I’ll Denounce Jack the Ripper, But I Also Feel the Need to Ask Why More of His Victims Didn’t Come Forward and Speak Out About His Behavior

2 Shares

I just want to make one thing clear right off the bat: I wholeheartedly condemn the horrible, disgusting murders committed by Jack the Ripper. Mr. Ripper is the most powerful man in London to be categorically identified as a murderer, but he’s certainly not the only one. We all need to come together and expel these sorts of depraved monsters from our society. However, I do feel like I need to open my dumb gullet and ask everyone a simple question: Why didn’t more of the women murdered by Jack the Ripper simply come forward and denounce his behavior?

Again, I totally understand how horrible Jack the Ripper’s actions were and believe they should absolutely be condemned. At the same time, I feel a need to condemn the victims of his murders for not doing more to speak out. Isn’t that the most important thing to do as soon as we identify a monster who used his immense power for even more immense evil? At times like these, we need to come together and blame the women who were completely powerless because they were dead. I am a bed-wetting coward and I want to find a way to ultimately blame women instead of the man who murdered them.

Sure, yes, Jack the Ripper’s long spree of murders is bad. But, isn’t the silence of his many female murder victims way worse? The silence of these murdered women allowed Jack the Ripper to continue to galavant through the streets of London, murdering with impunity. Let’s not get bogged down by the actual murders themselves. By doing so, we’ll just end up discussing the blatant culture of murder that has poisoned our society and kept women from speaking out for fear of retaliation. The point is, we can blame Jack the Ripper all we want, but it just doesn’t feel as good as doing some good old-fashioned victim-blaming.

Many of Jack the Ripper’s still-living victims spoke out about his actions and provided law enforcement officials with information to aid the hunt for this terrible man. Despite fearing elevated retaliation and having to relive their trauma, these victims bravely came forward with their accounts. That’s not enough for me, though. I am a craven hypocrite and although I feel comfortable denouncing murder, I refuse to look inward and examine our murder culture that made all of this possible. I’ll just continue blaming murder victims for not doing more to prevent all of this.

Jack the Ripper’s behavior has been an open secret in the East End for quite some time now. Our police could have certainly done more to canvass the slums of the neighborhood and set up lookouts in strategic locations to pinpoint the killer. The male occupants of the neighborhood could have certainly condemned Jack the Ripper and vowed to not rest until he was expelled from East End. Most importantly, Jack the Ripper could have certainly not murdered all of those women. Nonetheless, I would like to pivot away from the shortcomings of those in power and the acts of murder themselves and instead focus on the deafening silence of the many dead women. That’s the right thing to do right now.

Americans Are Tired Of The Same Old Pandering And Stale Ideas We’re Going To Keep Offering Them

1 Share

If last year’s election showed us anything, it’s that anger and resentment are on the rise. I hear it from small business owners and working-class families, from millennials and retirees. There’s a sense that we’ve lost our way, and that the blame rests squarely on our nation’s leadership. Simply put, Americans are sick of being patronized and sick of the same old ideas that we, as Democrats, are going to keep offering them over and over and over again.

The frustration is palpable. People are fed up with the status quo. Citizens from all walks of life are sitting around their dinner tables, talking about how they’ve had it with all the usual proposals that, once more, we will be repackaging and spoon-feeding to them in a way that’s entirely transparent and frankly condescending.

That’s something every American can count on.

My theory is that most humans have been colonized with alien mind-control slugs that hold the earbuds for them, and the ones who can't wear earbuds are the only surviving free ones.
