Things That Make Me Angry


Scooter Libby? Prez Bush? Words fail me.

Second, District Judge Jeffre Cheuvront, of Nebraska, USA? Single-handedly re-enforcing stereotypes of the South, of men. In case you don't know what I'm talking about, Judge Cheuvront is the guy who banished the word "rape", among others, from his courtroom, basically saying that it was an emotionally charged word, rather than one based in fact, and that using it would suggest judgement before the trial was over. The fact that my learning about this happens to coincide with a particularly bad bout of PMS has nothing to do with how angry this makes me. Other insinuations of this ruling include the fact that women are, in fact, nothing more than men's property, to be had sex with at the man's will, that women walking around are actually in a constant state of acceptance of random guys' sexual advances.
