“We should get rid of unpaid internships. The children of the new upper class hardly ever get real jobs during summer vacation … It amounts to career assistance for rich, smart children. Those from the middle and working class, struggling to pay for college, can’t afford to work for free. Internships pave the way for children to move seamlessly from their privileged upbringings to privileged careers without ever holding a job that is boring or physically demanding.”—
I was on my bus, and on my bus I have a yoga swing. Jennifer comes on, and she goes, 'Hi, Woody, I'm J—is that a sex swing?' Her first sentence to me.
When I got cast, she called me up for one of those five-minute 'Excited to work with you, blah, blah, blah' things. The conversation started with her saying, 'Think about a catheter going in – ouch!' and then turns into a 45-minute rant about zombies and the apocalypse.
I'd met her a few times, and she was like, 'You should come over and we'll hang out.' So I go over to her apartment, and she opens the door in a towel. She's like, 'Come in, sorry, you're early, I was about to shower.' And she drops her towel and gets in the shower, and starts shaving her legs, totally naked. She was like, 'Are we here yet? Is this OK?' And I was like, 'I guess we're there!'
Okay, so we were talking about marriage and what it means in class today. The professor is of the opinion that if two men or two women can be legally married, then why can’t we permit a marriage between two sisters or between father and son? My first reaction was a categorical “no”, but then I thought, why not indeed? I’m confused.
You’re confused because you’re an idiot, but then again, so is your professor.
How is it possible that the entire class didn’t immediately raise their hands to challenge professor wingnut with one simple question: If men and women can be legally married, then why don’t we currently permit marriage between a father and daughter or brother and sister?
Any answer he gives proves him a lunatic or a hypocrite. Either way, checkmate. All you had to do was use his own retarded argument against him. His logic crumbles the moment you apply heteronormative standards to his hypothetical, because it’s ridiculous to correlate incest and homosexuality.
Perhaps I will spend two weeks of my summer in a bartender training course learning about mixing drinks and earning my Washington state alcohol serving permit. You know, in case this whole law school thing doesn't work out.
