So, I was just sitting here minding my own business, when I overheard a piece on FOX "Wholly Without Merit" News about a school that has created a peanut-eating zone in their cafeteria in an effort to protect one child with a lethal peanut allergy. The tone of the piece was dismissive, even derisive -- sort of a "what will these crazy liberals come up with next?" kind of thing, classic FOX News stuff.
And you know what? Yeah, fuck that kid. If he didn't want to risk dying of asphyxiation in the school cafeteria -- writhing on the floor, turning blue, gasping for air and making gurgly choking sounds, gouging desperately at his throat and pleading for help while all his nose-pickin' little Republican peers watch and laugh and stick peanuts up his nose -- he shouldn't have been born with a severe allergy, that motherfucking little pussy. Why should his parents' desire to see him survive elementary school create a minor inconvenience for all these other kids? Why should the potential for his brutal, painful death cause even the slightest, most unnoticeable decrease in everyone else's "joy" (FOX News' word) in eating peanuts and peanut butter at the table of their choice? Why do liberals always want to ruin stuff for everyone else? Huh? Why?
Fuck that kid, if he chooses the peanut-allergic lifestyle, then death is just the risk he takes.
PS: We're "pro-life". (Unless you have a peanut allergy, in which case we don't give a shit.) |
