What they call confidence, I call hubris. What they call happiness, I call slavery. How about you?

Recently, I have been confronted by folks accusing Your Humble Narrator of being "too negative". These words have come at me from...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

Please, please, please, PLEASE, stop using the word "surreal".

From athletes to actors and actresses, from politicians to plebes, everyone is wringing the very meaning out of poor little "surreal".

It is a perfectly fine little word, but it is being worn out by overuse and soon will be dead unless all of us have pity on it and try using some of its synonyms below.

"Freakish", anyone?


sur·re·al


adjective

having the qualities of surrealism; bizarre
"a surreal mix of fact and fantasy"

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
