Science Is Not A Matter Of Opinion

NOTE: CoupleDumb is The Relationship Blog and lately we have been overwhelmed by the craziness of politics. To be completely honest, we are insulted by the rhetoric, disinformation, distortion, hyperbole, puffery, stupidity, paranoia, mendacity, prevarication and downright lying. One thing is to stretch the truth but the other is to lie to the American people just to further an agenda. We feel disrespected as citizens of this country and feel that certain people have decided we can’t handle the truth. So, we are bringing back our ‘WTF of the Week’ where we point out the misdirection, lies, slips, insults and stupidities of the week.

We Will Not Boycott Starbucks

The National Organization of Marriage is calling for a boycott of Starbucks. They are reacting to the following memorandum according to their boycott website: ‘On January 12th, 2012, Starbucks issued a memorandum declaring that same-sex marriage ‘is core to who we are and what we value as a company.’ The funny part is that that isn’t really the full quote from the memo. Are you surprised? What Starbucks actually said in the memo was, ‘This important legislation is aligned with Starbucks business practices and upholds our belief in the equal treatment of partners. It is core to who we are and what we value as a company.’ The legislation they refer to is the Washington State legislation to recognize marriage equality for same sex-couples. So where is the WTF about this? I know fish got to swim and bigots need to get pissed at big corporations that give credence to the need for equality.

Gay Suicides

I am in love. I have loved the same person for more than 20 years. I fell in love after only a few short weeks of courting. In the last 20 years, my love has grown and we have shared that by starting a family. We have a home, a good support system and participate in our community. Now here is the question: Does it matter at this point whether the person I love is a man or a woman?

WTF: What The Faith

We don’t know if you would believe it but we are spiritual people. We know a lot of people see ‘spiritual’ as code for New Agey/Pagan/Wiccan/Hug a Tree while dancing nekkid during the Full Moon that happens during the Winter Solstice. Truth be told we were both raised Catholic and have evolved out of that faith to embrace more Eastern philosophies. However, at the end of the day, Jesus is still a cool dude in our book and our main spiritual connection. So what’s with the declaration? Did CoupleDumb hear a horn or see a some scary guys riding horses? Nothing that dramatic but it is amazing and it has us saying What the Faith?

WTF of the Week: Rep. Joe Barton

I grew up in Torrance California. If you don’t know the area, let me draw you a little mental picture. Torrance at one point was nothing but oil derricks and orange groves. Before they built our home sometime in the 50’s, there had been an oil derrick pumping away. As a child I still saw a few on my block which were subsequently taken out and a house was plopped down on the site. In fact, several miles up the road from our home we had a refinery for two of the major oil companies.

WTF McDonalds?

We have been busy but does that excuse a lack of WTF of the Week posts? No. It is a tragedy that CoupleDumb has decided to let the stupid things that happen weekly go untouched. Being kinder and gentler does not necessarily mean we have to roll over and show our soft under-bellies. And no, that was not a fat joke.

WTF of The Week: Heidi Montag

CoupleDumb tends to be politically consistent. We advocate personal responsibility, communication and healthy love. In politics, we basically do the same. We support choice only because we hold everyone responsible for their lives. It is not our call. Any other decision is based on a victim mentality that we do not support. Now that we spouted all this hippy bullshit, what does that have to do with Heidi Montag?
