Gay people should have a huge boost of self confidence that Republicans seem to think that they can destroy a country.

Yeah, they're apparently extremely powerful.  It makes me wonder why they've been waiting so long to pull the trigger on that.  It's the waiting I can't stand.

I'm astounded nobody's marketing a "Gay Agenda": just a big diary with a pink cover on.

We thought up a great new reality show in the crew van this morning. It'll be called Deadliest Storage. It's based on these people whose job it is to search for missing shipping containers that fall off huge barges when the sea gets stormy.  It'll be like Deadliest Catch, but to make it more exciting they won't be told what was inside the shipping container, like Storage Wars. So after braving the sea and diving thousands of feet and fighting sharks and losing limbs, they might open up the container to find it was filled with Frosted Flakes that are now all soggy with salty sea water.

I think Felicia Day is the only actor I've ever known who I had this kind of weird platonic crush on.  She's cute, sure, but I don't think of her romantically and really just want to hang out with her.

People with British accents shouldn't make videos on Youtube complaining about things. It's not your guys' fault, but your accent tends to make you sound, to my ears at least, really pompous, childish, and condescending.

This has absolutely nothing to do with disliking the accent, it's just what I've experienced. Very few videos, podcasts, whatever, with British hosts sound reasonable if they disagree with the topic at hand. Conversely, they sound much more reasonable if they agree with something. I think it's why HGTV has a bunch of British hosts for their shows.

Thank you for sharing your prejudice.

I'm not prejudiced... I just find the accent can be condescending a lot of the time. I'm not trying to hurt anyone's feelings, I'm just tired of overreacting to angry British people, because it makes ME feel like they're being rude and offensive, when I know they're not. The problem is a bad reaction on my end, you theirs/yours.

Also, "accent", singular?  Way to wear your ignorance on your sleeve.
I'm well aware that there's more than one accent from Britain. They all have the same effect on me. I'm only saying this because I've gotten thoroughly pissed at British people in the past, only to later realize that what they were saying wasn't that bad. I know it's impractical and ridiculous to tell them to stop criticizing things when it's an issue on my end, but come ON, I can't be the only one who's had this experience, can I?

It's the same damn concept with thinking people from the south are stupid hicks. It's an involuntary response brought on because of shitty stereotypes in our society. You could be talking about Quantum Mechanics, and with a southern drawl, it would sound significantly less intelligent.

This is imedeately negated by this

You're correct, it's entirely on you whether you like an accent or not, nobody is responsible for your reactions to something that is an intrinsic part of a person than you and if you don;t like it it isn't their fault.

I don't think it's completely ridiculous to find that someone sounds rude or condescending if they speak with a certain tone or accent. It's not a conscious reaction, obviously, or it wouldn't be a problem.
