A bitch caught the Today Show this morning and was disturbed by how they chose to cover the astronaut diaper alleged kidnapping incident story.
I certainly understand the…um, appeal...cough…of the story. A woman who is an astronaut drives 900 miles while wearing a diaper (daaaaaaammmn) to allegedly confront/kidnap/kill her sorta but may not actually be however if she thought of her as one that may make sense of it all romantic rival.
There was no way in hell that shit was going to get overlooked…a bitch understands that.
But the story was enough…the diapers alone were going to get you an audience, people! Y’all didn’t have to lace the segment with fucked up linkages of class, mental illness and female unhappiness.
Walk with me for a spell on this one, chil’ren.
Matt Lauer expressed that the nation is shocked and confused about why a woman who is smart, successful, man on woman married and the mother of three (a set of twins, for the love of Gawd and a teen too) would loose her mind. What that says is that education and a traditional family life are vaccines against depression, mental illness and just loosing your Gawd damned mind.
And that, faithful flock of bitchitude, is bullshit.
If I had a dollar for every multiple degree having, man on woman married and perky perfectly pressed elite pre-school attending children having women I know who have dealt with depression…mental illness…or just loosing their Gawd damned minds this bitch would own General Electric and thus NBC (oh, the power!).
But she’s intelligent and she’s an astronaut!
Oh, come on now.
Is she human?
Well, okay then!
Wealth, education and man on woman sanctified child having marriage don’t have shit to do with who has a mental illness (gasp).
Mental illness is not a punishment or the wages of sin (gasp again).
And, for the record, this bitch finds it fascinating that the press is so fucking certain this astronaut is or was mentally ill.
Oh fuck it, for all we know she was sober and perfectly sane. We don’t know her life! For the record, smart people do and say dumb ass shit all the time.
The Today Show even had the audacity to bring in a psychologist to discuss what in the name of Gawd could possibly have driven such a blessed human being to do something so fucking stupid. He was great...really helped a bitch grasp the complexity of intelligent people getting caught up in primitive emotions and giving in to primal urges.
Weren’t we just talking about smart people saying and doing dumb ass shit?
A bitch is going to lunch with the hopes that some very intelligent married mother of three doesn’t decide to get her primitive on and indulge in those primal urges at Walgreens.
