Fundie lite family...


CanadianHippie

Recommended Posts

Let me preface this by saying I have more than a few problems with my dad's side of the family, however I can usually stand their antics for a brief period of time. Today when I logged onto facebook I got this picture shoved in my face by an Aunt-by-marriage who suddenly started posting this kind of crap a few months ago.

Seriously, I just wanna send a big "fuck you ignorant bitch" to her, but I know it'll just come back and my problem and not her being an ignorant bitch.

I have to say, I'm not looking forward to the political season... My family aren't fundies, just from the opposite side of the spectrum, and make my head explode. When one woman "liked" a page praying for Obama's death and her dad started making vaguely racist comments (then not listening to people trying to explain the racism), I hid them from my news feed for a few months. I unhid them again until they say more stuff that makes me angry (in large enough quantities).

we require laws made by people who are rational and can use real facts to support their idea's not people who use info from their imaginary friends to run everyone's lives.

I've been debating hiding her and my uncles news feeds since this started. She posts mostly anti-choice and religious crap (she posted one "inspirational" piece of shit that implied even if the worst possible thing in the world happens to someone it's a gift from God and you should be thankful, I typed up a few response to that one, mostly profanities but never sent them. It just... It really got to me, not three days earlier I found out one of my best friends was diagnosed with breast cancer and just seemed like a giant "fuck you" to anyone who has had to deal with some serious shit.) My uncle mainly posts agist, sexist, racist, homophobic crap. I'm really starting to get the picture of why they decided to move to the southern US, Canada is just too damn nice for them.

I feel for you. My sister and I are the lone liberals in the my family of neo-cons and unltra-conservatives. I've learned to not open any e-mail from my parents during an election year. And I just have to ignore their jibes about my political beliefs.

I have a lot of cool, liberal people on my FB, but I do have some folks who could be considered fundie lite.

My dad is guilty of posting images like that and is consistently posting crap about how evil Obama is :roll: The closer to the election gets, the worse it gets. I just try and ignore it as best I can. I will be glad when the election is over with!

Ugh. I'm sorry about your friend. *hug*

I'd like to see a chalk outline of an actual embryo "victim". It would just be a little chalk circle a couple of inches in diameter. But that accuracy wouldn't have that same emotional appeal that anti-abortion people love so much.

Why not respond, sans the profanity? I've done this to a few people; on facebook and in person. Politely pointing out where and why they are wrong. You have just as much right to voice your opinion as they do. Trust me, spent way to many years keeping my mouth shut around idiot family members, until I just couldn't take it anymore. If they can spew nonsense publicly, I can correct them publicly. If they don't like it, they are the ones who can keep their mouths shut.

Agreed. Just drop her a "Because my uterus is not a fucking crime scene, you ignorant fucking bitch" fucks optional.

Cause every time i focus on it long enough to type a response it always comes out "Fuck you you fucking fucker who wants to fuck over all women because she's a fucking misogynist." It's not my best work.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
