I don’t know why I watch the news in the morning. I know these shows are basically meant to be background noise as you begin your day, but the stupidity of what counts as actual news these days is appalling.
Case in point: this morning, there was a 10 minute segment about whether or not there’s a gene that causes people to be kind. First, people (by and large) are selfish jerks. I think it’s part of human nature, survival of the fittest and all. Second, the story went on to say that you can judge whether or not people have the kindness gene simply by looking at their faces because “nice-looking people are nice.”
You know what I say to that? Fuck you, stupid lamestream media news. Just because someone is nice-looking, i.e., attractive based on white Western standards, does not automatically mean that they are, in fact, nice.
