Charlotte Parent: Curse Of The Open Mouth

Way back in once upon a time time, if you dudes heard me screaming, “Golfcarts!” you knew I was having an appalling moment.

No, not a normal curse word, but I think we can all agree that no one has ever accused me of being normal and made it stick.

As far as I’m concerned, there are no inherently bad words. No words that, when used, will hurt the listener or the speaker. Which means that words only have the impact that we as a culture give them.

Which is what makes cursing so much fun for young dudes.

Today at Charlotte Parent, where I’ll be blogging under our Stay-At-Home Dudes column name, I’m talking about curse words. And how a little dude who couldn’t remember a simple request if his life depended on it, will never forget the one time “$h!+” slips out of your mouth.

Join us, won’t you, as we all head to Charlotte Parent for the day?

Fireworks Fail!

by Richard

With the explosive holiday of the Fourth of July safely (I hope) behind us, I’d like to take a second to recognize the idiocy.

Some people seem unable to understand that fireworks are, first and foremost, explosives. Their primary job is to explode. To blow up. Explosively. In other words, you don’t want to be around when these things light off.

Unless you’re one stupid dude.

In which case, you’ll think it’s a good idea to put a bottle rocket between your butt cheeks and light the fuse.

Yeah, someone actually did that.

So, take a few minutes and watch. And be glad it’s not you.

Oh, and there are a few curse words in here (not surprising considering some of the massively unexpected and massively powerful explosions that occur), so make sure all ears in the room are able to handle it.

Down, Down, Down

by Richard

Hey, dudes.

Sorry for the mopes here, but I’m still a bit down in the dumps that my fellow North Carolinians decided it would be a good idea to restrict the civil liberties of a substantial portion of our citizenry with a stupid constitutional amendment.

Let’s face it: the reason people are against letting same-sex marriages go through is they’re squicked out by the thought of two men getting it on (or strangely attracted to the idea), so they want to get rid of it. Now, I’ve seen a lot of the women involved in this sort of thought-experiment-gone-wrong movement and I personally get squicked out by the thought of them getting it on. But you don’t see me spearheading a drive to have it declared illegal to marry them, do you?

No. No, you do not.

Not only that, but this opens up a whole ‘nother can of worms. I mean, how are they going to determine who’s a man and who’s a woman? Yes, I’m serious with that one.

There are genetic men who have had sex-reassignment surgery and are now living as women. There are genetic women who have had  sex-reassignment surgery and are now living as men. There are genetic disorders that give people more sex chromosomes than most people. Heck, Jamie Lee Curtis has an XY sex chromosome and you wouldn’t call her a man, would you?

It’s ridiculous, is what it is.

Two consenting adults should have the ability to marry and be legally supportive of each other if they want to do so.

And we just went ahead and took that right away from people because 60% of North Carolinians don’t like thinking about what those people do in their bedrooms. Grow up, people.

Sorry for the rant. You’re just lucky I accidentally deleted the one that was three times this long and filled with a lot more curse words. We’ll be back to normal tomorrow.
