Dooce is a lucky woman
Back when Mer was in town, we were out one night -- in Hobart, of course, which if you know anything about NWI, you'll understand that what I'm about to tell you is typical -- and this dude started hitting on me (what comes next, not dudes hitting on me). I might've been intrigued, I'll admit, but then the guy flapped his yap about gay marriage and how it was wrong. (At that point, Zook, in one of his funnier moments, said "Oh no. Has she started using the hand gestures yet?" but I digress.)

What I did end up telling the jackass was that first of all, gay marriage has absolutely nothing to do with him and his life, because it doesn't; after all, millions upon millions of men were sodomizing each other at that very moment, and he was still standing there drinking his eight or ninth beer of the night, right!? But then I brought up that my brother is gay, and he was all, "Aw, yer just saying that," and I was like, "No. I'm not." He finally backed off, but here's what I wish I would've said if I thought this guy would've gotten it.

It is the job of a good person to be honest. To be self-aware. To deliberately explore the fault lines of your character and try desperately to not inflict suffering in this strange, ghost-ridden world of worked and fabricated objects. Sometimes the jobs of writer and good person coincide. But more often they don’t. There are way more writers in the world than there are good people.
