MRAs getting angry at feminists make me think of Dudley Dursley when he throws a tantrum because he got one less birthday present than he did last year

Let me preface this by saying that teenagers - and people in general - say stupid shit. We don’t think beyond a cursory acknowledgement of “Hey, this might be funny, and people will pay attention to me if I say it.” It’s not ideal, but little of human nature is (and fuck off, being liked is a natural desire, don’t get all pious on me).
But this is good, dude - not the part about how you’ve been bullied, but the fact that you’re getting help with it. This shouldn’t have started in the first place, but you need people on your side and now you’re getting that. Bad shit is going to happen; the big deal here is that you don’t have to deal with it by yourself.
it always starts with the same two words…
The football question, I presume?
Hell yeah, I had an answer for that. I’m the tits, man.
It’s good to go with your gut instincts in life. You just should. Even if it doesn’t work out, something good will come out of it.
Fuck if I know, I call everything “sportball.”
Actually, though, I do know: The sport - England & Co.’s football, America’s soccer - was started off by prestigious British schools in 1860-whereabouts, and it was originally called Association Football, but it was abbreviated to “Assoccer,” and then that was later shortened to “soccer.” The less-than-prestigious (plebeians, ha!) used the term “football,” but that eventually became the norm for many countries.
America, however, continued to call the sport Association Football from 18something until after World War II, and then we picked up “soccer” from the original abbreviation of the word. American football, meanwhile, is an offshoot of rugby football (I am about 87% sure), so we call it football.
So, yeah, the whole soccer vs. football debacle isn’t so much of America fuckin’ with everyone else as it is an English legacy.
