      THIS is what i like to read on buzzfeed. actual stimulating, interesting pieces about real people and their real experiences. i imagine it can be a very interesting, complex journey when you are the object of someone’s desire and their desires can be considered fetish by some, but preference by others. i really enjoyed this article.

      let me just preface with saying that i love beck. own multiple albums of his, and i don’t own a single track by beyonce. but i don’t think he should have won. did i love his new album? yes. does his music age like a fine wine? yes. but it was nothing groundbreaking. and if anything, very bland compared to his music in the 90s, when he should have won a grammy.  i don’t really have an opinion on if beyonce deserved the grammy more, because i haven’t really heard anything of hers recently, but to say he is a better, more deserving artist is blatantly ignoring the fact that she is a successful powerhouse who managed to release a brand new album unexpectedly, that is seemingly loved & obsessed over by many people.  i hate when people put two polar opposites side-by-side and compare which is better. beyonce and beck aren’t even the same sport. it’s like arguing why hockey is better than golf. they both have their merits and they both are enjoyed by many people. just because one requires less physical effort doesn’t make it less valid or worthy.

      jofairlock, it’s the sad reality, which some people (andyofohio, i’m rolling my eyes in your direction) choose to remain oblivious to. but, i am incredibly proud of my loved ones and friends (some of which are very unhappy about our continued presence in the middle east) for their sacrifices and dedication to being the best people they can be in order to defend our country.

      andyofohio - oh look, an idiot on buzzfeed. typical. i know i’ll regret typing anything more than this, but i guess in my cold, dead, feminist heart there’s a small part that has hope you’ll see the light.  please do YOURSELF a favor, and work on your critical thinking a little more. with your bountiful privilege in this country, one would believe you’re educated and have been exposed to many different people from all walks of life. that being said, it’s pretty clear you have already formed a negative (probably racist) view of islamic people.  having an informative, constructive dialogue about the practices and punishments of islam is considered questioning, yes…but, invading countries and killing women and children, is not. neither is spewing racist hate all over twitter.  there are evil people in EVERY religion or lack thereof. does that make all christians as a whole evil? or jews? or atheists? EVERY religion has oppressive/backward ass views depending on who you’re asking. just because the US’s cultural and religious views have evolved to being less restrictive does not mean our history pages are not stained with the blood of innocent men and women who happened to be of a different race or sexuality than the majority. and, news flash, IT STILL HAPPENS. every damn day.  nodding your head in agreement when innocent people are slaughtered in the name of taking out evil people does not make you their savior, it makes you yet another oppressor. maybe turn your valiant efforts toward yourself before you try to save another country, or group of people from themselves. because with the latter, we have only done more harm than good.

      i would go even further to say that sometimes it is necessary to question the honor of some of the men and women in uniform. the staggering instance of sexual assault and rape alone that occurs in the military should terrify you when you remember that these are the people who are supposed to be defending our country, and this is coming from someone whose grandpas, father, uncle, brothers, etc. were/are in varying branches.  unfortunately it is not just political leaders that are corrupt. i know this is going off-topic from what your original message was, but i think it’s important to be aware that not everyone enlisting is worthy of the title “hero.”

      as beautiful and poignant as this article was, the actual tragedy of american sniper is the sheer amount of racists it has pulled out of the woodwork. not convinced? just check out twitter and you too can take in all of the tweets from white males all over america (warning: slurs/threats) wanting to murder “ragheads” and kill muslims in the name of “patriotism.”
