Aloha hippies, hipettes, and hip-sters. Phrost here, and although this is Hedgehogey's column, I figure I'd pop in and actually write in it this year. Don't fret, our favorite ninja-choking, cosplay gong sau-ing, anarchist is still around and being a force for good in the world despite what the Koch brothers would have you believe.
In fact, Mr. Hogey is to blame for me becoming aware of this example of Martial Arts Stupidity In Grammatical Format Which Is The Point Of This Column If You Haven't Already Grasped That.
There I was, this morning, checking on the progress of of my nefarious schemes to make Earth a better place by wrecking the lives of stupid people and assholes, and also checking my Facebook. When lo and be-dumb I find a link on Hedge's wall to a post about an upcoming seminar series targeted at teaching women how to defend themselves against sexual assault using legal weapons in a state where it's amazing that even fighting back hasn't been outlawed. (See JB, I told you I'd plug it).
Anyone who's been on the Internet for more than five minutes has run into vocal idealists of all varieties. That's a good thing, for the most part. And personally, I'd rather spend my free time with people who have strong views about anything, even if I disagree with those views, than mush-minded assholes who don't even have strong opinions on what kind of fucking pizza you should order.
Which is why Capitalist Phrost sincerely enjoys the digital company of Anarchist Hedgehogey and would likely jump in on his side in a brawl between him and Tea Party assholes, if I ever attended those sorts of human clusterfucks (I don't).
But when it comes to having ideals, it helps to actually know what the hell you're supposed to do with them. If your ideals involve fighting against shallow consumerism and the exploitation of workers in the third world, you probably shouldn't blog about your views on a shiny new Macbook hand-made by virtual slave labor. Or if you think homosexuality is ruining America, you probably shouldn't have hot man-sex with a male prostitute/massage therapist.
Anyway, meet Sam Mit. Sam seems to have graciously declined to attend a self defense seminar that wasn't even targeted at him in the first place. But declining wasn't good enough for Sam. No no, ladies and rapists, Sam has SOMETHING TO SAY.
Well, since that's what this column is about, let's just let Sam say it for everyone to hear. In fact, in honor of Sam's eloquent musings, Bullshido wants to announce that in his name, we're starting our own action network:
Internet Martial Arts Community United Now Together.
Sam's a member of IMACUNT. Won't you join?
