There is, however, a pretty obvious cause of butthurt that everyone envisions when they try to think of its point of origin. It’s called getting fucked in the ass.
Look, obviously many people don’t intend that interpretation when they use the word. Doubtless, a lot of people recognize it simply as an effective term in the discourse that can be used to put someone down. Like kids with gay uncles or aunts who would never dream of wounding their family but nevertheless say, “Ugh, that is so gay,” on the playground, butthurt is likely just a weapon in the arsenal of many people who’ve never stopped to think what it means.
That’s unfortunate, but it’s not an excuse. The imagery of forced humiliating sodomy (or at the most optimistic, a thorough ass-kicking) immediately conjures up pretty clear pictures of the victims, and those people are bitches. Bitches like women, who aren’t as strong as men, who are subordinate to them because God or biology made them weak, who are meant to have things shoved in them, in areas around the butt. Bitches like male weaklings in prison populations, who can’t fend off attackers with their fists and have to preserve their safety by being regularly sodomized at another’s behest, who only get what they deserve as criminal subhumans anyway.
SEDALIA — Missouri’s two Senate candidates tangled today over whether taxpayers should subsidize school lunches for more than 34 million students across the country.
U.S. Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican candidate, told reporters at the Missouri State Fair that he opposes federal spending for the National School Lunch Program, which provides cash and surplus food for nearly 650,000 school lunches in Missouri each day.
Akin’s Democratic opponent, incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill, quickly attacked Akin’s opposition to the federal school lunch subsidy.
‘I support federal school lunches,’ she said. ‘The notion that the federal government should stop using surplus commodities to help public schools feed kids lunch is a non-starter for me.’

A new refinery costs $4 billion or so. Exxon had a profit of $400 billion last year alone. A new refinery in Wisconsin or Illinois could handle the Canadian crude oil and supply the entire upper midwest. Instead, big oil wants to ship it across the entire country down to a Gulf of Mexico refinery so it can be processed and exported to higher cost markets, which will keep American fuel prices artificially inflated.
House Republicans set aside divisions within their party over the appropriateness of the government’s role providing college loans to pass legislation to prevent interest rates from doubling as scheduled in several weeks.
The final vote was 215-195.
Democrats broadly opposed the measure because it’s paid for by eliminating a public health fund created by the Affordable Care Act – one which they note disproportionately benefits women. The White House has threatened to veto the bill based on this pay for.
Before he had the brilliant idea to fire the school janitors, he wanted to use the power of the government to take poor kids away from their “welfare queen” mothers.
Gotta love how outraged this philanderer is by illegitimate children.
Two police officers involved in a pepper-spraying incident at the University of California-Davis have been placed on leave, and over the weekend, the university’s faculty association called for the chancellor’s resignation.
But Chancellor Linda Katehi told ABC’s Good Morning America on Monday that she’s staying put. ‘I really feel confident at this point the university needs me,’ she told GMA (video here). ‘There are so many critical issues to be addressed and we really need to start the healing process and move forward.’
Kick her to the curb.
The CLGC memo raises another issue that it says should be of concern to the financial industry — that OWS might find common cause with the Tea Party. ‘Well-known Wall Street companies stand at the nexus of where OWS protestors and the Tea Party overlap on angered populism,’ the memo says. ‘…This combination has the potential to be explosive later in the year when media reports cover the next round of bonuses and contrast it with stories of millions of Americans making do with less this holiday season.’
By the time the Harvard M.B.A.’s from Bain were finished, sales at the medical company, Dade International, had more than doubled. The business acquired two of its rivals. And Mr. Romney’s firm collected $242 million, a return eight times its investment.
But an examination of the Dade deal, which Mr. Romney approved and presided over, shows the unintended human costs and messy financial consequences behind the brand of capitalism that he practiced for 15 years.
At Bain Capital’s direction, Dade quadrupled the money it owed creditors and vendors. It took steps that propelled the business toward bankruptcy. And in waves of layoffs, it cut loose 1,700 workers in the United States, including Brian and Christine Shoemaker, who lost their jobs at a plant in Westwood, Mass.
The LRA isn’t the only problem in Uganda, and our military can’t fix the rest of the world.
And, of course, corruption:
