What's wrong with "you people"?

Posted By on Wed, Nov 20, 2019 at 3:24 PM

Whether it is somebody saying "you people" in a context that appears discriminatory, or somebody seemingly making a broad generalization about hockey players being "bullies," why is the immediate reaction of so many people in either of the instances to demand that offender to be removed from their chosen career or livelihood? I don't agree with either statement that was made, but I also don't agree with an approach that is simply nasty, vindictive and inflammatory. We can criticize, deconstruct and openly discuss things that offend and hurt us without stooping to the level of stripping careers and opportunities from people as a form of justice for our infringed feelings.

Why does no one ever write a Love about me?

Posted By on Sat, Sep 7, 2019 at 9:05 AM

I read the Loves all the time hoping someday one will be from someone who noticed me on a bus or at the grocery store and wished they'd said something. Many of these are clearly written about my friends or people I know who get noticed in a "missed connections" kind of way and maybe it's petty of me, but… how come I never get written about? I'm a hell of a woman. Not as thin as my younger prettier friends who get written about? Hmm. Or am I just "intimidating" like they say? I'm not! I'm friendly and approachable! I love people! Unless you're a creep. Then you can fuck right off. Maybe it's just creeps who write in? What does that make me? Oh shit.

Wall of runners

Posted By on Thu, May 2, 2019 at 11:46 AM

Attention running groups of Halifax: stop blocking the fucking sidewalks.

Running shoulder to shoulder on the sidewalk and forcing pedestrians to move out of your way when common courtesy is to do the opposite is obnoxious as fuck.

No invite

Posted By on Tue, Oct 9, 2018 at 2:35 PM

Yet another holiday has come upon us and my coworkers are talking about yet another social event that I haven't been invited to. It is awkward as fuck to have people talk about plans in front of me like I don't exist. I'm not even mad, rather I am confused and hurt. Team players? What did I do to be treated this way?

Canadian hurricane survivors

Posted By on Mon, Sep 18, 2017 at 2:00 PM

Yes, a hurricane is a terrible thing and living through one must be a terrifying experience.  But, all you Canadians stuck at Club Med with water and sandwiches bitching that the Canadian Government isn't doing enough to get you out, here's an idea: Send your sandwich makers home to help their own families, make your own damn sandwiches, go across the  street and help some devastated family search through what used to be their home and help them start to put their lives together again.  Stop your pathetic whining about your situation and help someone who really needs it!

Capitalism, Not Cashiers

Posted By on Wed, Mar 8, 2017 at 12:00 PM

I sympathize—you thought you were going to get your children some toys. Your children, doubtless, deserve toys. The thing is, when it turned out you'd misread the price, there's nothing a cashier can do about it—the "scanning code of practice" protects you from mislabeling, not misreading. So, you were essentially asking the cashier to break the rules for you. I think she should have, but, let's face it, she's almost certainly been subject to decades of capitalist ideological indoctrination that your tantrum in no way addressed. I think you missed a wonderful teaching moment to say, "Look kids, Galen Weston Jr. rakes in billions of dollars denying toys to children over a measly twenty bucks. This is how a society based on wage labour and commodity production devalues real human beings. And this poor, underpaid cashier is expected to run damage control for the bourgeoisie!" Instead, you acted like a jerk. Don't be a jerk, we're all in this together. —Woblaws

Merril Sleep

Posted on Tue, Jan 10, 2017 at 7:41 AM

I am pretty damn well tired of this. Actors who are self important pompous holier than thous telling other people what to think. He is going to be the president. Deal with and stop crying. might as well wish him good luck. If he fails like you all want him to so does your country and perhaps it will bring you down with it i found it in bad taste for her(classy lady) to go off like she did. She is a pretty good actress much in the vein of Streisand is a singer. Over rated! –chief wiggam

Bikes parking on street so wrong

Posted on Mon, Sep 26, 2016 at 4:00 AM

The article on 'Bike parking installed on Cornwallis Street last week has been vandalized repeatedly' is about someone moving the bike corrals off the street and onto the sidewalk between huge planters. There is nothing wrong with that. The person that is parking on the street where the corrals were is totally right. That what car registration is for. If they would register all bikes, they should have a voice, but until then....mute it. The bike corral was moved off of the street and on to the sidewalk three times in five days. Cry me a river. —Toakey

To a certain pro-life organization: Your offer of "help and support" to pregnant women in crisis makes me sick and angry at the same time. Having been in that situation myself, I know that a visit to your organization would have been traumatizing to me in an already difficult time. And I had the good fortune of having a solid support system around me. Take a good look at the information you're giving out. Unbiased my ass! —Pro-choice for Life

No dear what's truly shameful is people like you who allow their children to rule and want and ask for things that are not for them and you allow them to have it. No dear it is you who should be ashamed of yourself for being so ignorant, angry and self-centered and controlled by your children instead of doing the right thing and telling them NO!!! —I'm not ashamed one bit.

No Harm No Foul

Posted on Wed, Sep 2, 2015 at 4:00 AM

News flash: There is physical contact in soccer. At every level. Even in our over 35 league. If that physical contact is considered 'dangerous play' (Read FIFA rules), the referee will call it. If you don't accept this fact you wind up acting like one of the many women in our league who fucking freak out every time there is physical contact, as though some great injustice has been done when they are leaned into or challenged or touched in any way. If the challenge was dangerous, the referee will call it, got it? If you don't accept this, you run the risk of acting like a five year old, like you did in the game on Sunday when I challenged you and you screamed at me "If you push me, I will push you back!" and shoved me with both hands, full force. Really? Woman over 35? Did you notice how I kept walking after you shoved me and kept playing? The referee didn't call my challenge and didn't call you shoving me, and guess what, I didn't break or fall apart. And the game continues. It happens all the time in this league and it's worse than diving because the women in my league go completely bonkers when there is the slightest bit of contact, screaming and yelling and being indignant. Ironically, when they perceive the contact to be unacceptable to them (not that they are actually even hurt!), they frequently resort to shoving and name calling. If you are such fucking precious pieces of work, go figure skate and stay the fuck off the soccer pitch. —Play the whistle, for fuck's sake

SuperBowl and the CRTC

Posted on Sat, Feb 7, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Dear CRTC you guys are a bunch of fucking IDIOTS - People in Canada are so short sighted when it comes to the Superbowl - we want to see the american commercials. WAH !!! Guess what all you stupid fucks - someone has to pay to see this shit right now a canadian network pays for the rights to show it in Canada - doesn't matter which network buys it they have to sell commercials to pay for it. That network will simulcast on U.S. networks instead of having them Blacked out. If you were the NFL you would sell to the highest bidder and if nobody buys it for Canada maybe they demand a Blackout in Canada on the U.S. networks. Our CRTC demands it be broadcast in Canada without inserting commercials from Canada so where is it payed for ??? What Business will be stupid enough to pay the NFL millions of dollars to make ZERO money on it ----- FUCKING DUH!!! ---- NOBODY. A company can only make money on a Pay Per View situation in Canada. Sombody has to pay the NFL for their product - it used to be the Canadian Advertisers. If it goes to CBC then taxpayers pay - otherwise maybe it is individuals on pay per view or maybe you have to subscribe to a sports network - I liked it better for free - remember there isn't any business that wants to toss money in the trash. Good old stupid short sighted Government of Canada and their appointed Idiot squad at the CRTC. one year of not being able to see the game at all will bring a few more complaints than Canadian comercials ----- YA THINK ?????? —Canadian and NFL fan

Nova Scotia: Die Miserable

Posted on Sat, Feb 7, 2015 at 12:57 PM

I'm trying to wrap my head around what it is in Halifax's culture, and Nova Scotia in general, that is so negative and pronounced... I mean, the proof's in the pudding and I've never seen so many downtrodden, moody and just plain miserable fuckers in all my life. I often wonder if there's some Be-An-Asshole-Chemical in the air being steadily pumped into the unsuspecting sleepwalking culture OR some invisible smog of negativity and depression that constantly hangs over everything and slowly drains peoples life-force AFTER making them slowly lose their minds...
Well, I've observed that generations of men were basically unemployed deadbeats, prompting resentment from women, who, in turn, eventually snowballed an immense FemiNazi culture of staggering and horrifying proportions( I've never seen so many half-shaved heads eating salads behind so many pairs of Buddy Holly glasses-this is madness!). The men, excluded from the Lesbianic activities, eventually also turned to their fellows, wore tight jeans, grew monstrous beards and, like the ladies, decided 'Well, since I have no 'real' work ethic in me, I'll just opt for artsy pop-culture and pretend I'm somehow useful to the world: "Yeah, that's it! We'll hide in shabby drug-inspired pop-art and even worse music! Hotdiggity! Great Scott, I've done it!"
And the poor? I mean, the shelter-doomed, smoke-grubbing hopeless poor? Don't even get me started. Since moving here, I've lost all feeling for the poor and regard them with utter contempt( What's all the more fucked up? IM POOR TOO!). The rich here are just plain lucky and are limited to rare sightings like UFO's...
So * sighs* Yeah, this place is fucked in more ways than one... I can see why people just up and leave. I'm presently trapped here but am planning my escape. I'll be the proverbial bearer of grim tidings like in every adventure story: the decrepit lonely soul who says "Don't go back that way Mister! That place is doomed! Many go that way and some...*points a trembling finger*...never return.."
Someone get me the fuck out of here! —Hiding my smokes and beating these bastards off with a stick!

Just ridiculous

Posted on Thu, Dec 18, 2014 at 4:00 AM

In the history of this city has there ever been a construction project that was welcomed with open arms? I mean seriously, though every project I see or read about is facing opposition either from a loud handful of citizens or a city councillor. We have how many empty lots and derelict buildings that just sit there, and sit there? I'm 25 and I've looked at the same empty gravel lots for my entire life. The minute a developer wants to put a building up or any development they are met with such fierce opposition they generally just walk away and don't come back. I see The Coast has dedicated their issue to those of us that have to leave, but will there ever be a reason to stay? I hear the term "have province" all the time and it seriously depresses me. I love Halifax and Nova Scotia but we really need an attitude adjustment. Our downtown is only by name because it’s literally "down" town. City Hall is there but do they look out their windows? —Ben
