Leftist commentary from a mouthy bitch
So do you.
There is nothing inherently wrong with anger, no matter how much the hippy dippy new-age-y types will tell you there is.
We feel anger for a reason.
If you let it rule your life to the exclusion of all else, it can be destructive. If you turn it against yourself or other people who don’t deserve it, that’s not ok.
But you know what? Me saying that occasionally someone makes me want to stab them, is not anything to freak out about. Me saying that someone should “Die in fire!” is not anything to freak out about.
Now, if I have a knife in my hand and I start toward you very menacingly and say, “I want to stab you” then you might have reason to worry. If I’m standing in line for coffee, chatting with the barista, and sigh, “Sometimes I just want to stab him,” this is not cause to gasp in shock and dismay.
Seriously. I’m sorry me disgust with someone’s behavior offended the tiny bubble of peace and tranquility in which you live, but out here sometimes people get pissed off. About a lot of things. About inequities and assholes getting away with horrible shit, and people who suck, and people who won’t listen to you but instead just dismiss everything you say because “You’re just one of those angry Feminists/Queers/ethnicity of choice.”
Fuck yeah, I’m angry. And you would be, too, if you paid any god damned attention to what’s going on around you.
Ghandi, father of peaceful resistance… You don’t think he was angry? If he wasn’t angry, then why the fuck was he leading protests?
