But here's something that the Stonewall riots and the demonstrations in Iran have in common: once in a great long while, people who are quite used to getting shit all over by the greedy, hypocritical scumbags in charge (and the mean, stupid pigs who do what those scumbags tell them to do) get sick of it. They figure they're going to get their asses kicked one way or another, so for once they might as well do something to make the ass-kicking worth getting. And they get up and they make a lot of noise and they throw shit at people who aren't used to having shit thrown at them, and they say, hey, you motherfuckers, we are goddamn human beings. And if we don't do anything else our whole fucking lives, just once we're going to send you home knowing that the people you've been shitting on all this time are are human beings and there's only so many times you can beat a human being down before they decide to beat you back. And that's a lesson that you can learn easy today, or you can learn it hard tomorrow.
When those things happen, it's always a good thing. I wish it happened more often. And that's what I think about that.
