Geek Girls Rule! #262 – I have had it with these mother fucking Dickwolves on this mother fucking plane!!!

Just imagining him saying the title of this post makes everything better.

My apologies to the great Samuel L. Jackson.

Seriously?  Serious-fucking-ly?  What’s the matter, Mike, you were fading into the irrelevance you so greatly deserve, so you had to open your fail hole and shove both feet in?  God DAMN it, this is why we can’t have nice things!

Look, here are a bunch of links to a bunch of people who have said a great many really smart, really trenchant things about a sad and increasingly irrelevant asshole.  I’m fucking tired of talking about this overgrown man-child and his enablers.  I’m fucking sick of it.  Because every time his mouth opens and stupid falls out, whether I comment on it or not, I get a new influx of rape and death threats on this and the old WordPress blog.

And I have this to say for the people I know who have met him:  if you have to keep saying, “But he’s a great guy, but…”  Just maybe that person isn’t a great guy.  Maybe he’s a fucking asshole with more issues with women than Vogue.  So, I’m not linking to the video of his fail.  If  you want to see it that badly, then you can fucking google it.  I’ve done enough educating today, and much of it before I’d even had coffee.

I am not sure how to attribute this, but it rocks.  “You’re not a martyr from free speech. You’re just an asshole.”

Let’s really look at this.  The one, ONE, decent thing they did in light of the entire Dickwolves debacle, pulling the merchandise, is his greatest regret.

Stop and just think for a fucking second how a rape survivor, of any gender, might feel surrounded by douchebags wearing what amounts to “Team Rapist” shirts.

Look, as I’ve said before, I’m glad that Mike and Jerry think rape is the worst thing that can happen to someone, it pretty much is.  Or at least, that’s how it appeared in the first comic. And I got the “Sixth Slave” comic.  I did.  But everything that followed was more fail than really one human being could usually hope to achieve in one lifetime.

Mike, I’m glad you’ve never been sexually assaulted, I really am.  I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.  But maybe you could grow the fuck up and grow some fucking empathy, you pathetic child.  And Jerry and Robert, maybe you could tell him the shut the fuck up when he’s being a giant douchebag, it would make you look just the teensiest bit less complicit.

I am so angry that I have to write about this shit AGAIN when I could be writing really touching Wallander fanfic.

Assholes.
