Long time no update, but in my defense I’ve been busy. By busy I mean being sick and going to doctors and attempting to desuckify myself, but hey. Whatever floats the boat, right?
I’ve updated the look of the place again, and I’ve also added a page up top called “My Work”. A lot of people ask me what I write about, now I can be lazy and say HERE, CHECK OUT MY WEBSITE. I HAVE IT FOR A REASON. I even added little samples so folks can see for themselves exactly how I mangle the English language.
So in other news, you may or may not have heard about the debacle with JC Penney this week, and if you didn’t, by all means let me educate you. For those that are linkaphobic, the rundown is this: JC Penney has an online store as stores are wont to do these days, and they tried to sell this shirt to girls in grade school:
People went absolutely batshit on JC Penney, and understandably so. Their tagline for the shirt was “Who has time for homework when there’s a new Justin Bieber album out? She’ll love this tee that’s just as cute and sassy as she is.” Cause yeah, the fifty percent of the population with boobs has absolutely no desire to be smart or independent. All we do is lust after a mangirlchild pop singer and worry about our lip gloss. Learning’s for NERDS. AND LOSERS. WHO WANT TO DO MORE WITH THEIR LIVES THAN BE ON A REALITY SHOW TITLED “THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF _________”.
Penney’s apologized for their oopsie, though there was a little bit of “BUT WE ONLY PUT IT ON THE WEBSITE, NOT IN THE STORES” whining after the fact, which I didn’t appreciate. The good news is, enough of the internet fell down on their heads about this they yanked the shirt. To the one parent who actually bought this for their offspring? You better burn it before a shitstorm ensues. I might also recommend you think long and hard about why you thought dressing her in something so demeaning was okay.
