What's with the name of the blog?
I am a somewhat socially awkward individual. It's been pointed out to me that I am one of those people who is intelligent to the point of lacking social skills. I have a habit of calling people out on their bullshit and/or sharing random facts that may challenge their worldview or claims. Often, people do not like this. And sometimes, they respond by telling me sarcastically, "you must be really fun at parties." The blog contains mostly the kind of thing that prompts that reaction, inspiring the title.
(For the record, I am fun at parties.)
I am blunt and sometimes rough around the edges, but always honest.
This is a safe space, a sex+ space, and a douchecanoe-free zone.
Check your privilege at the door.
Bigotry, stereotypes, prejudice, patriarchal bullshit, homophobia, sexism, racism, classism, rape culture/rape apologia, "slut-shaming", double standards, body hatred, or anything that falls under the umbrella of being an asshat is not welcome here.
Differing opinions and intelligent discussion are always welcome, if they are respectful and appropriate.
"Trigger Warnings [TW]"
I use trigger warnings [TW] out of consideration and in the interest of keeping this a safe space. There is discussion of a number of topics that could potentially be "triggering" or problematic to anyone reading; I have no way of knowing who's reading and what their life experience includes. It's a respect thing.
On "pulling the degree card":
I have my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, which informs my view of the world as well as my writing here. I often write in the capacity of and from the perspective of a social scientist. You may not like what I have to say, you may not agree with it, and it may not be your experience. However, that does not make me wrong; being a sociologist does give me authority and does give what I say validity. I spent four years earning my BA from a fully accredited and well-respected university. However, I do not like "pulling the degree card" and pointing that out when defending myself. Please do not make me play that card.
Dude, talk like a normal person:
Please refer to The Lexicon for explanations of what any of the terms above (or any other sociology terms I have a habit of using) actually mean.
