To be fair, I have a friend who has been putting butter in their coffee for a while.

They just like it better than milk or cream I guess...they don't use the extra XCT oil or some stupid "low toxin" beans like bulletproof coffee. And they aren't trying to use it to lose weight...

Wait, people are trying to lose weight by adding butter to things?

I'm all for butter but that just doesn't make any sense.

Not sure about adding it to coffe but the idea is that the body actually craves/needs a certain amount of fat. Give it the fat it needs and you won't actually crave food as much.

For what its worth my brother was the biggest loser at his crossfit gym on a diet that called for shitloads of bacon, meat, and eggs. Same basic idea.

The butter thing might be taken from yak butter tea.

I'm sure they'll get a good job at some place that offers a living wage.

They will go on disability, food stamps and Medicaid. It's the American way.

Apparently both sides of the vaccine debate are nothing but dirty, fucking ableists.

Now consider the standard response from vaccine advocates to stuff like this – it’s always, without fail, “Vaccines don’t cause autism.”

Because they don’t, right? They absolutely, scientifically do not cause autism. That’s a solid fact.

But here’s what everyone gets wrong: regardless of whether or not vaccines cause autism, our entire conversation surrounding them is completely ableist.

snip

What we also need to recognize is that every time we respond to fear-mongering about vaccines and autism with the words, “don’t worry, vaccines don’t cause autism,” that is also ableist. Because instead of pointing out that, hey, autism and neurodiversity are far from the worst things that could happen to a parent...

Neurodiversity? Spank my ass and call me Sally. I find myself wishing there actually was a god and that he would send us back to the monkeys and start over again.

The funny thing is that it was really the parents of autistic kids (like Jenny McCarthy) that ramped the fear of vaccines up to this level. Tell them that "neurodiversity" is such a great thing.

It probably does. It's the one jurisdiction where being a lawyer doesn't practically excuse you from being on a jury, simply because otherwise there may not be enough people for a jury.
