Trifecta

As time passes, there are fewer and fewer groups of people that it is ok to hate. Well, in some groups you had better hate certain groups. And some people use code words to disguise who they hate (New York meaning Jews and San Francisco meaning gays, for example). But, mostly you better not admit to hating people just because they belong to certain groups of people.

Three groups that it is not only ok, but positively morally required to hate are: fat people (particularly women), old people (particularly women), and atheists. So, I hit the trifecta, fat old atheist that I am.

Well, if you believe the premise that hate really stems from fear, then fat/old/atheist women are hated/feared because:

a) they are bigger and in our lizard brains that translates to "more powerful"

b) they are wiser and understand the follies of youthful arrogance and

c) they are strong of will do not subjugate their intellect to irrational beliefs.

So I'd say congratulations are in order for hitting that Trifecta! :-)

Well, color me immoral then! I'm not so svelte myself, I adore my grandparents, and my sister who I am very close to is an atheist.

I'm a born again atheist! And the older I get the more I think old = fat.
