I'll just link to the people who've covered this rather spectacular demonstration of assiness so thoroughly that I don't have to add much:
("White Lady Pity Party")
Sylvia's, where It apparently all began (I'm still spelunking)
and Renegade, who also covers others I might have missed.
--and p.s. not incidentally Kai, who does not talk about this directly but has a roundup of takes on similar, more public assiness, (the same story Sylvia was covering)
So! I really don't have much to add at this point.
Just a special plea, really:
You know, Asshat-Americans really are shockingly oppressed.
In fact, by definition, they happen to be THE MOST OPPRESSEDEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD.
Not that there's a hierarchy or anything. But if there were.
Because, no one ever even considers how hard it is to be an unsocialized fuckwit in a world full of people who have emotional and social skills somewhat better developed than those of a neglected meth-addled toddler.
WON'T SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE ASSHATS?!?
Please, please, give cash, prizes, fuckloads of oozing sympathy and fluttering attention, as generously as you can, to Me.
No, really, it's best that it goes through Me. I'll be sure to pass it on to those who need them most.
*Ahem* I said, GIMME.
What?? Don't you TRUST Me? You don't believe My motives are altruistic and pure-snowy-white as the driven guano?
-tremulous sigh- Well, I forgive you. Clearly you just haven't understood Me properly. Not many do, you know.
--WHAT ARE YOU LAUGHING AT?!?!?!?
Oooo, I'm so offended.
No, that's IT. I have suffered a grievous injury; there can be no recompense.
YOU ARE ALL BASTARD PEOPLE.
Not, I hasten to add, that I EVER expected any better from the likes of you.
And by the way? I'M LEAVING.
Yes, that's right. I am DEPRIVING you of my presence. No, you can't change my mind. Take THAT. SUFFER WITHOUT MY PRESENCE! You'll all be sorry! OH YES YOU WILLLLLL...
