Hater Nation and More From Graig
I feel like this blog has finally arrived. I have officially developed a legion of haters. So, Ted, Andy, Greek Girl, and everyone from The Locker Room message boards on Warchant.com, thank you. Today has been a lot of fun.
For those who do not read my comments section, I have been pretty steadily ripped for the past two days. I'm not sure why, but all of a suuden what was once a mildly offensive comments box has become an all-out attack of myself. Oh well, keeps things interesting. Then came today, when my good friend Matt Johnson put a link to my Jenn Sterger post on a UM message board. Then it got put up on a couple of FSU boards, then an Iowa one, then one at University of Kentucky, then, I have no idea. What I do know is I got literally 70 times the hits today that I have gotten on any other day. And most of these people, apparently, don’t like me too much. No word if the Drugstore Cowgirl has seen it yet, though.
Then there was this guy, who devoted an entire post to me being a doofus. Thanks, I guess. But he is pretty funny. At least he thinks he is.
So, since I have devoted so much energy to addressing Dade Hater Nation (and some might say I should just ignore them, but what fun would that be?) I am going to once again give the floor to my good friend Graig. Or, as I like to call him, the only decent thing to ever come out of FSU.

We’ve worked really hard for this. I would like to take this moment to share some wisdom that I really think could go a long way towards settling some of the problems between the sexes. Well, perhaps that’s a tad exaggerated. I mean, I didn’t exactly find a way to convince women that they’re sole purpose is to satisfy the physical needs of man and that alone should make them happy enough. Surely, if I had, you would have heard of my Nobel nomination on CNN or something. No no, my ideas are much more modest. But I do truly think this can have some impact on bettering relations.
Men can, at times, have rather foul mouths. It’s part of what makes us men and it’s really fucking fun to just curse sometimes. Try it. This display of rudimentary language can be applied to all topics and subjects, including women. Sometimes men make comments or descriptions of women that are found to be quite offensive by the female gender. However, it seems to me that often times women rarely understand the basis of such comments.
When men get upset they like to swear. If a man gets upset with a woman, for whatever reason, there will logically and most likely be swearing involved. In this instance a man can use any one, or more, of the myriad of derogatory terms for women (why so many??). Since there is such an abundance I will only mention a few of the more popular ones and also some of my personal favorites: bitch; whore (pronounced whoore); slut (can be pronounced sloot, much like the law offices of Steven Slootsky, or the infamous Vandersloot); and of course everyone’s favorite – cunt. Yes, that’s right, the ol’ champion of berating women.
The problem arises when women hear men use these terms and think that the man is actually using these words based on their descriptive meanings. Men know this is not always the case. Too often women miss the point of what the real problem is and focus more on the definitions of certain words used when outlining the problem. For example, if I begin a sentence with something like, “This fucking whore went and did….” or, “Can you believe this Goddamn slut….” I don’t necessarily mean that these women actually go and sell their bodies for money, nor are they even necessarily morally loose individuals. If they are and the price is right, then hey that’s fine. But I digress. The above examples simply portray a guy who is upset for some reason, the source of his discontent is a woman, and he is expressing his dislike of said woman with the first demeaning term that pops into his head. It really is that simple. If the aforementioned female happens to be your friend, don’t take it personally if she is referred to as a whore. Ladies, this is what you need to understand.
I do realize that there is a chance that any female who was reading this stopped prior to this section and is ready to go off on some tirade about how I must never get laid and I must be ugly and why do I hate women, etc., and it is this same behavior that perpetuates the problem I am addressing. Or there could be the girl who is reading this who doesn’t take these simple words seriously and looks to the bigger picture….
