Hari Kondabolu on the Late Show with David Letterman. I think I might be the first standup comic to say “race is a social construct” on late night television.

Internet Bullying: How Would You Feel?

Writing a comment about an individual on the internet rooted in hate is not something to be taken lightly.

How Would You Feel?

Writing a comment about an individual on the internet rooted in hate is not something to be taken lightly. It’s probably the lowest form of humanity, because it shows the person writing the comment is too much of a coward to say it face to face. No matter what is being said about some one by another person, the fact of the situation is no one should be publicly attacked in such a malicious way so publicly. 

Bullying is real, and does real damage to people. It doesn’t matter if the bullying is in person or online, online could be more hurtful because anyone from anywhere can chime in and be anonymous. Bullying isn’t exclusive to children or teenagers, and being over 18 doesn’t make bullying socially acceptable. Bullying is leading people to commit suicide because they feel so awful about themselves that not living is better than enduring being bullied. 

Someone close to me recently had this situation thrown in her face. Someone took it upon themselves to privately message her on Facebook to let her know about all the rumors being said about her. Apparently unsatisfied with how the private message went, took to writing a public post that hatefully addressed a single individual without naming names. Multiple people jumped in on this post adding their comments, some referencing that they think they know who it’s about. Others took the post as fact and immediately disgraced the person in the post without actually knowing who it was about or who that person is. 

What horrifies me about this whole situation is, that it was a situation to begin with. The rumors in question mainly involved my female friend and various sexual relations with men that allegedly happened. First, WHY DOES IT MATTER? Second, WHY DOES IT F*CKING MATTER? 

Also, being mad at someone for their personal life choices doesn’t give YOU the right to humiliate them so viciously. To everyone who commented, you also have no right to force your opinions about a person on them. How would you feel if it was about you? If the way you lived your life was publicly in questioned and scrutinized by a group of people that you work with on occasion, how would it make you feel?

What gives you or anyone else the authority to criticize a person without any merit of truth or known facts? How does bullying an individual make the situation any better? Most importantly, how is that person affecting anything you do in life? 

What a woman does sexually is no one’s business but hers and her partners. A woman should never have to explain herself or tell about her sexual experiences. If it’s a question on if a woman is trying to sleep her way to the top so to speak? Who cares?! Because, if that is the case then usually there is a man in power knowingly taking advantage of women with said power on the deception of “helping her out.”

Bottom line is that bullying is a disgusting behavior and there is NEVER an okay reason to do it. It just makes you look like an absolute asshole. Also, maybe instead of focusing on other people’s lives, why not focus on something that would actually do some good in this world? Volunteering, picking up litter, getting a job? There is too much hate in this world, if we all spent more time accepting each other then maybe there wouldn’t be so much hate. 

I Wish Rush Limbaugh Was Under Assault

First, I would like to applaud Michael Sam and his decision to become the first openly gay player in the NFL. It is so important for this nations youth to learn and understand that being gay is not shameful, or a sin, or will prevent anyone for reaching their goals. For Michael Sam to publicly say he is a proud gay man, is a huge step in progress.

With that being said, the only way with this progress of equality, we as the media and individuals need to stop enabling this acceptable bigotry around the discussion of LGBT. With that I mean, Michael Sam announces he is a gay man in the NFL, instantly media reporters are asking other NFL players “are you going to feel comfortable knowing a gay man in on your team?” or tirelessly bringing up showers in the locker rooms. All that is doing is fueling the hate myth that having a gay man on a sports team means all he wants to do is have sex while subtlety alleging all gay men are rapists. 

Then of course there are those volatile right wing conservative shows like Rush Limbaugh, and anything on Fox News. These shows with millions of viewers who take everything said as gossip and truth, should be outlawed. Fact. Limbaugh ran his mouth about the news of a gay player in the NFL, and without fail the bigot white piece of shit said hateful words only a piece of shit would say. Most of which sounded like:

"I’m too fat to be physically active in anyway shape or form and Michael Sam is in a prime position to be great at football while breaking down stereotypes. I find myself so attracted to him but will never say so, instead will make up insane lies and loudly say them brainwashing millions of listeners to think they’re facts. My lies will mostly consist of hate speech for people who are not white and male, and women, because no woman has ever loved me…"

I think that is what is said, I didn’t actually listen but skimmed an article that quoted the highlights of what he had said. I do know Limbaugh said “heterosexuals were under assault,” not sure which heterosexuals were under assault, or what would be a driving factor for assault on heterosexuals. 

If they are, I really hope Limbaugh is one to be assaulted. By assault, I mean his radio show cancelled, publicly humiliated in the media, being refused service because of his identity,ostracized by all his friends and family, and forced to live in fear and shame because of the way he was born. You know, the same assault he and every other right winged conservative network are guilty of. 

Hello, Comedy Central? You’re White

The list of comedians chosen to do half hour specials was released today via the website splitsider. It’s not surprise that out of the 15 chosen, only 2 are women.

Really, Comedy Central? Only two women are “funny enough” to be chosen for a coveted half hour special?? I find that incredibly hard to believe, that in 2014 there are only two women worthy enough to be chosen. Luckily, for comedy fans there is no short of white male comics taping their new half hour specials, some are debuting their half hour, while others are repeat comedians. 

I find this absurd, especially with all the headlines women had made over the past year and with the MissRepresentation movement, #NotBuyingIt making head ways. I mean, sh*t I know more than two women in Boston alone that are worthy of a half hour special and should of been asked a long time ago. 

But, alas, let funny be funny right? Even when white men refuse to acknowledge how funny non white male comedians truly are.

This is Ava, a beautifully brave 5 year old cheerleader who underwent major surgery to remove a brain tumor the size of a tangerine on Jan. 31. As support for their daughter, her dads shaved half their heads to look like Ava. I was told about Ava’s story along with this photo and was blown away by the beauty of the photograph and the love parents have for their children. My thoughts and heart goes out to Ava and her family for hope she has a quick recovery and is back to cheerleading soon. 

Update! Ava has returned home but needs your help to continue to fight to stay home, happy and healthy! http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/-avasarmy-/135409
