WTF?

Okay, WTF? #1 for the day: this fandom secret proclaiming Veronica Varlow's homeliness. Veronica, for those not in the know, is Emilie Autumn's Girl Friday and goes on tour with her. She looks like this. Why yes, that Veronica. She's a homely, homely girl. Srsly, WTF? Not only is the standard of beauty unrealistic, but so is the standard of ugly!

WTF? #2 is this post on Little Details, not so much for the post itself, which is a harmless enough inquiry about how gay people were treated in c. 12th century Ireland, but for the response down the thread in which some blithe soul proclaims, "Somehow, this doesn't quite sit right with me."

WTF? Um, I'm sorry? Maybe you could invent a time machine and go back to 12th century Ireland and take up the subject with the natives. People in the medieval period had a different viewpoint on homosexual acts than your average livejournal-patrolling modern-day fangirl. The Church was not cool with the gays. There was no Gay Pride Movement. There wasn't a concept of a homosexual identity. I mean... they had a different culture. If it doesn't 'sit right with you' then, um, good for you? I guess? I tried to add some information that was actually worth a goddamned thing, but it remains to be seen if it was taken.
