Existential question of the day:

Why are some people such utter, utter fuckwits?

No, I mean: I KNOW why, or as well as anyone else; you know, I can riff off the nature and nurture and society crap as well as anyone else. Psych of all stripes, sociology, religion, U-Name-It. I KNOW some people are raised by wolverines, and some of those don't get better. I KNOW some people just, some combination of factors, synapse A doesn't quite synch up with synapse B or however that goes, haven't had a fair shake...for whatever reason, however it plays out, won't or can't act like a human being, the end result is: they don't, and that's just how it is.

and yes, obviously, we're ALL fuckwits some of the time, no one is saying otherwise.

But in my observation, SOME, not many, but too many, SOME people ARE fuckwits ALL of the time, or at least pretty damn close, and what I want to know is why?

And, I'm not even sure -why- I want to know why, you know? I mean, it's not like it's going to make any difference. It's not like you can go to the person and go, aha! I have pinpointed EXACTLY WHY you are such a fuckwit, and the person will go, my god! i never thought of that, but you're right! i SEE it now! i AM a fuckwit! this changes everything. as God as my witness, I will never be a fuckwit again. It's not like they'll take -any- responsibility for what they're doing or saying at -all.-

Because if they DID, if they WERE capable of and/or willing to do that, why, they WOULDN'T BE FUCKWITS IN THE FIRST PLACE, NOW WOULD THEY.

a yep, pretty much.

Veronica said...

Have you been drinking?

belledame222 said...

This rant looks more alcoholic than my other rants?

Or are you referring to my redecoration here?

In any case: nope.

Sage said...

Honey, love the purple, but you're blinding me! It's like driving into the sun. You really want to get there, but it's so painful you're considering veering off the path. But I won't dammit. I'll get there if it kills me. Gosh, I'm a trooper!

belledame222 said...

o all RIGHT, all RIGHT *grumble*

everyone's a gorram critic. look, i was SO EXCITED i could finally start playing around with color, i LIKE PURPLE GODDAMIT, and i HATED that bloody earthtone and, and...*sniffle*...

no no, fine.

just fine.

i'll change it.

(bastard people)

Renegade Evolution said...

i like the purple

belledame222 said...

any better? i mean, readability wise.

Ravenmn said...

Oh, sweetie, I figured this out a long time ago. People who are truly fuckwits are and shall ever be fuckwits because they honestly believe everyone else is a fuckwit and they would be losing some grand immortal contest if they didn't engage in fuckwittery themselves.

All of which gets totally blown away the minute one human being is unaccountability caring and generous toward another human being.

Fuckwits just don't know what to do with that shit.

I fucking love fucking with the assumptions of fuckwits. Please join me in this amusing hobby!

idyllopus said...

I gather it was more purple than this?

No problem at all readability wise.

After the initial surprise of the shift to purple from the earth tones, I decided I like it.

belledame222 said...

yes, far more purple. it didn't look quite so purple in the test page for some reason. or rather, this purple looked sort of washed out to me by comparison. i'm already liking it better, though--the other one didn't have enough contrast.

Sassywho said...

i like the purple and the rant. i say 2 litters of purple passion for everyone!

Deoridhe said...

I see no purple and this makes me sad.

What I wonder is why people who I've told that I think they are utter fuckwits think i care about their opinion.

belledame222 said...

just changed the layout again, had to re-customize. yeah, i like this better.

why: i think it's like when you yell at the dog, you know, and they get all excited because clearly your attention means BARK MORE! BARK MORE!...

expatbrian said...

fuckwittery is passed down from generation to generation. Fuckwits raise and teach their children to be our future fuckwits. Its the age-old chicken and the egg problem.
We all think we are right, at least most of the time. Even Bush and the pope do and god knows they are nearly always wrong. Fuckwits are no different, nor would I expect them to be. The only way to get rid of them is to sterilize them and not allow them to adopt. It would take a generation but it would be worth it.

Cassandra Says said...

So, which particular fuckwit pissed you off this time?

Also, much as I admire your optimism I'm a little puzzled as to why the nature of that bizarre and interesting creature the complete fuckwit still comes as a surprise to you. It's not like there aren't enough of them around to observe. They're like roaches, really, it's almost impossible to avoid them.

The color looks fine now, BTW.

KH said...

The purple bespeaks royalty of some kind, if you ask me. Your real name Anastasia R______, by any chance?

Rootietoot said...

Yow! COlor change- warn a person, will you? Change is good but sometimes it's startling, especially at 6:45 am.

As for the fuckwits, my family, we have this saying:He can't see past his own bellybutton.

That's it- psychological myopathy.

husband has more experience with them than I do, such as his current boss who is in the habit of picking up the nearest bottle to spit his tobacco juice in, even if it's the operator's half-finished, still cold Dr. Pepper.

kactus said...

Orange is one of my favorite colors, but purple is #1, so stick with it. And I can read it perfectly well.

I say we chip in and buy Sage some virtual sunglasses, so she doesn't get blinded by belledame's purple beauty.

Jen in Ohio said...

Purple is my favorite color, so, yeah.

I think I get your drive to understand this brand of committed fuckwittery. When I was in my 20s in college becoming a theory-head, desperately trying to understand why the world was so deeply fucked up, I got into both identity theories and ethics theories in a major way. Now, ten years later, I have this personal (although, admittedly, somewhat half-baked) philosophical treatise on what I call The Asshole Problem. Don't know how to solve it yet, though. Life's work and all like that.

Anonymous said...

Fuckwhit are wuckwhits because they can get away with it and someone will back them. I swear, my family is like a dick? You can be a fuckwhit and mom will back you to the hilt. Steal from a girl in the family? no problem. Be a violent drunk to the females? no problem. Should a female be "daring" enough to tell the males off mom's all over them ( usually me) to "remember your place" And "thant how men are, grow up and learn what it means to be a woman" Thanks but o thanks. I am entirely convinced that fuckwhits are the way they are because they have been taught that it's ok to be that way by someone with "power" in their lives.

Kim said...

Like Cassandra, I want Fuckwit Specifics.

I like the purple!
The heck with all of these bastard people. In fact, your blatent sticking to your purple guns is rather like when Corky said: "I'm going to fight for my country! To fight... and yes, perhaps die!"

GOD, I wish I was in the show!

antiprincess said...

I dissent.
what do you have against orange? got some kind of citrus conspiracy theory or something? seriously, why do you hate fruit, Belle?

sorry, just being a fuckwit.

Daisy said...

A "fuckwit" is a person who has consistently failed to obtain any degree of 'clue'.

This will often be in a technical sense, such as 'top posting' to usenet, quoting the entire text of a usenet post or email in your reply and adding a few words in response, or continually being a complete dickhead.
(Additional reference may be found on Dick Gaughan's site)

A fuckwit is often the cause of an id-iot interface error

Spammers are always fuckwits.

The term "fuckwit" may now be used quite easily in non-technical circles and probably applies just as equally to many people we meet in everyday life. Rude people, devoid of manners. Loud people, especially those who use their mobile telephone in totally inappropriate environments and only know two voice volumes ('silent' and 'shouting').

Many fuckwits drive buses. Actually, many fuckwits just 'drive' - badly.
However, not all drivers, of buses or otherwise, are fuckwits.

Fuckwits park on pavements and in disabled parking spaces when they are not entitled to do so.

Fuckwits always believe they have 'right of way'.

Fuckwits drop litter in the street.

Fuckwits only generally care about themselves and this is evident in their overall attitude toward everything and everyone else.

Fuckwits always know absolutely everything in the history of everythingness.

Fuckwits talk lots and listen little.

Fuckwits never allow evidence to prevent them continuing to be a fuckwit.

Fuckwits, basically, are fuckwits.
There is no cure.

You'll know when you meet a fuckwit.

Give the gift that matters. Send a fuckwit card.


i heart the internetz

belledame222 said...

also can be used as: adj. ("Goddam, what a fuckwit asshole!"); adv. ("Will you STOP with the fuckwit accordion playing already?! You're driving me batshit!") verb ("Don't fuckwit me, you fuckwit")

also see derivations, "fuckwitacious, fuckwitaciously," etc. etc.

Daisy said...

Many fuckwits drive buses.


And don't forget, semi trucks on the interstate, particularly at night!

I think the anonymity in Bloglandia makes the fuckwittery much worse.

belledame222 said...

i think more the lack of face to face than anon per se. maybe.

otoh, there are plenty of "real life" examples of fuckwitaciousness (oo, forgot, also noun derivate) to be found as well.

belledame222 said...

fine. y'all want specific examples you've seen 'em, most of you, but two recent PERFECT specimens:



Caren said...

I work with a lot of fuckwits. It's so frustrating.

Love the new look by the way.

Nanette said...

Love the purple (once I got over my shock)- hate the red and blue at the top. Definitely blinding!

But, as I kept saying to myself "It's her blog and as long as she is happy, it's all good".

Why are some people such utter, utter fuckwits?

The question of the ages. And it still has no answer.

Jozet said...

First, I like the purple.

Second, you just haven't met fuckwits like you meet fuckwits when you work customer service

Which doesn't answer or add to your ramblings.

I'm just being a fuckwit and co-opting your space to voice my own complaint.

Amber said...

DUde, I love the new blog look, except the red-on-purple header text is making my eyes freak the fuck out.

Rootietoot said...

"Why are some people such utter, utter fuckwits?"

I think you're thinking too deeply about this. People are fuckwits to make the rest of us look good.

Blackamazon said...

OOH purple!

and people are fuckwits usually cause in some warped way it get s them what they want

It's an odd and sick thing to think of but thats how it works

BA: that makes the most sense.

except it then begs the question: WHAT is it that they WANT?...and, why do trolls eat such strange food?

changed the header border to dark purple and the title to a darker red, maybe that'll help with the "blinding" factor.

Christine said...

I don't care WHY they are fuckwits. What I want is mandatory fuckwit tattoos.

Because I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt, even when I have that niggling sensation that they may, indeed, be fuckwits.

Wouldn't it be great if they had to be labeled, so you could see it right away and say, "Yep, thought so. No need to get all vulnerable and honest with this one, because they'd just be fuckwitty."

But if someone wants to tattoo me, well, I retract my above statement. I'm no fuckwit. No way.

really wasn't asking for examples of fuckwitaciousness there, fuckwit. it's not like there's a dearth of them.

Elizabeth said...

I am sorry people are suck fuckwits, but not really, because I laughed so hard through the post and the comment section I cried.

So, your fuckwit pain is not in vain if it brought me joy, right?

And I love purple.

hugs, E

rosmar said...

As a non-fuckwit raised by serious (though sad in their own way) fuckwits, I hate the idea that fuckwits beget fuckwits.

I like the purple, too.

belledame222 said...

fuckwits don't -inevitably- beget fuckwits. that is the good news. there are many non-fuckwits who have been raised by fuckwits. more study on how this occurs and why some people make it to "non-fuckwit" while others do not is clearly needed.

it's more the opposite: if you come across a fuckwit, well, i suppose it's =possible- they were raised by non-fuckwits, but ime, never happens.

Maria said...

I agree with that, based on my own experience so far.

rosmar said...

Oops. I meant to post that as rosmar, since I never post as Maria

lilcollegegirl said...

My theory on fuckwits, since my dad most certainly is one is that no one has ever successfully convinced him of anything by argumentation or reason, just because one eventually gives up in despair. And because he has only ever come to the realization that he might have been mistaken through his own fuzzy thought processes, other people's don't matter and are clearly inferior and not worth listening to. Speaking of which, he called just as I was reading this post.
