Fucking Fuck XI

"Please excuse me for some profane words," Spike Lee asked his audience at his new film's Cannes premiere, "But the shit that’s going on, it makes you want to curse. [...] … stuff is happening, and it’s topsy-turvy and the fake has been trumpeted as the truth. " This is the new fucking fuck venting thread. [more inside]

Fucking Fuck, v7

It's time for another FUCKING WTF thread! Not even a week into 2018, the current occupier of the Oval Office has baited Kim Jong-un about having a "much bigger & more powerful" nuclear button, asserted his former political opponent, her chief staffer, and his ex-FBI director should all be in jail, feuded with his former campaign manager Steve Bannon over indiscreet quotes, threatened the publisher of an unflattering insider account of his first year with legal action, addressed the White House press corp with a pre-recorded video, and suspended security aid to Pakistan. As a public service for MeFites, here is a place to cry out, commiserate, and console in the New Year. It's chaos; be kind. [more inside]

With the Unread, Illegible Tax Bill having passed the Senate, among other shattering, quotidian, or seasonal joys nightmares events, I suspect that a place to howl may be necessary. Please, howl here. [more inside]

Fucking Fuck v5.0

This is the new FUCKING WTF thread. The last few weeks months years have been stressful. Please come in to share how you're surviving, to breathe, to vent, to tell us about happy things and victories small and large, whatever's on your mind. I love you all.

Fucking Fuck v4.0

Come in. Sit on the couches. Bring a drink if you like. Or a blanket. And your dog. I don't know about you guys but it seems stress has ramped up in the last week or two. Let us let loose our fucks.

Collective WTF

The last What the Fucking Fuck thread hit the 30 day expiration mark, so I wonder if it's time for another peaceful corner to breathe?

So, pointing out that Wendy Carlos is trans is instadelete?

There remain posts on the thread asking WHY WHY isn't she mentioned. It's not like there isn't a fucking simple reason she isn't mentioned. Why is explaining this simple reason cause for comment deletion?

Is this thread taking a wierd detour?

I don't understand why this thread is taking this weird route. At first I thought the worst thing that could happen to her was that she would be married off to an old dude and never heard from again. Then I realized that the worst thing was an acid attack. [more inside]

Surely This

The level of naked bigotry in the comments to this thread is absolutely appalling to me. Is it really okay on MetaFilter to flat out claim that transfolk are just making it up?

Secret quonsor wtf? So, in the Secret Quonsar swap I seem to have drawn someone who turns out to have done their PhD (last year) in my husband's department. Is there something in the algorithm that makes that more likely than the absolutely bizarre unlikelihood I would have thought it had?

I like New York in June, how about Jews?

So somehow a (reform? cultural but not religious?) Jewish comedienne who wears a t-shirt marked "I love Jew Cock" is relevant to a post about the pain of middle-aged shomer negiah. [more inside]

Who broke metafilter?

Is something weird going on with metafilter today? Sometimes I can't get to any of the pages ("Oops! Google Chrome could not find www.metafilter.com"), and sometimes it's just metatalk or my own profile. I don't think I've got through to my own profile page in about six hours now, but the other pages are up and down. Is it just me?

Posts that end in a ?

If someone posts a link to the front page that ends in a question mark, are they really linking to the best of the web, or are they just asking a leading question in order to generate discussion of their pet topic? And should we disallow front posts that are just trollish leading questions because they weaken the mefi brand and more importantly drive me nuts?

Dreaming about...being me?

I Had A Dream in which a cute woman was flirting with me. Then, at some point, I revealed that I was ParisParamus. She proceeded to run away. Despite running towards her and into a building, I could not find her again. Then, the dream ended. What does this mean?
