10 Things Every Adult Should Know

So I've had this list of “10 Things Every Adult Should Know” kicking around for a few weeks, never sure when to post it.  I really like a lot of what the guy says…

8. You have no right to be proud, unless you did it yourself.
That goes for anything from racial pride to patriotism. Your race,
gender and nationality are fucking accidents of birth. Being proud of
something you got stuck with when mamma squeezed you out is stupid. You
have a right to be proud of your own personal accomplishments, and
perhaps those of your children (if you were actually a good parent, and
your kids didn't succeed by sheer bloody-mindedness alone). That's it.
Your parents fucked, Mom got knocked up, and ~9 months later, there you
were. Race, gender and nationality handed to you out of some cosmic
lottery machine. Fuck your white pride, black pride, national pride,
and all the horseshit that goes along with it.


…but the obsession with anal sex (two of the ten items, three if you count the one about “if you have sex, you will get pregnant” as some sort of subtle pro-anal message, are about bum sex) sort of takes away the impact of the foul-mouthed but otherwise accurate points in the other 7/10 of the list. 

(via Reddit though I've long since lost the link to the thread with comments.)

    Just so you know, the author of the article you speak of is a chick.

    I stand corrected. But male or female, it doesn't change the fact that the author apparently believes a full 20% of the things every adult should know about are related to anal sex.
    I'm not making a judgment about anal sex – I just thought the otherwise very insightful, accurate list seems a bit skewed by this imbalance. Even another blurb on something sex-related would've been great!
