I don't want to read Dilbert anymore, since it has come to my attention this morning that the creator of the comic strip has made multiple blog posts that are offensive to women. One of the posts was later deleted this spring after a major feminist outcry, but I went looking for the other after one of my Facebook friends posted a "rape is not natural" petition, to be sure things weren't taken out of context.

The original post that sparked the petition. Using Twitter in a lewd manner or not having marriages work out is one thing. Rape is another; there's no excuse for it.

Blog discussion on a deleted Scott Adams post stating that women not making equal pay is not worth arguing about, among other things.

I think I've said this once before... do people's parents no longer teach them to be quiet in a movie theater, except for typical reactions like laughter at a comedy, and whispering something necessary in someone's ear? Tonight I went to see Paranormal Activity 2, and it was basically ruined for me because the other people in the theater whispered, talked at normal volumes, and giggled uncontrollably throughout the movie. I have heard that laughing is just the way some people respond to being scared, but enough teenagers were laughing that it was annoying as hell. Not to mention the people near me who kept talking loudly and saying, "That's fucked up!" when something scary happened. The movie would have been so much creepier without all the noise. I wanted to ask the normal-volume talkers, at least, to shut up, but people are so weird and unpredictable that they might have assaulted me in the parking lot after the movie was over. Next time I want to watch a scary movie, I'll just get it on Netflix!
