I'm not even going to read all of Sam's post. I am too busy saving the world's balls.

Though I do appreciate the time he took to write a three paragraph explanation for why he doesn't give to charities in public.

I have to admit, I was quite surprised to find out about a charity event that primarily benefited men.

Thought those didn't really exist.

It's all part of a campaign that's been going for a few years to get men -- in Australia it's especially men in rural areas -- to stop being such manly men and stop being queered out by doctors having a good go of their balls and fisting them in the bumhole looking for cancer. I don't know statistics but prostate cancer and testicular cancer are a huge cause of death, and frequently preventable if found early.

and once we get used to it (oh boy I can't wait for my scheduled introductory anal probe in 20 years) we can really cut down on that cause of death, because early treatment for those things is getting really, really good.

it's like one of the only reasons why it's nice to have your testicles hanging out in the open covered only by a bag of skin.

Dennis is right, not enough men are getting their testes tested or their ring wrung.

Here's what I think might be the crux of what he's saying (bolding my own):

Sam wrote:
Were I to write it, Sam's Entirely Joyless Guide to Grim, Categorical Charity would mostly be about how to isolate which organizations are the best suited towards devoting your available manhours or monetary donations. It would be a straightforward analysis of which organizations devote the least to overhead, have the lowest administrative expenses, and the greatest amount of accountability, transparency, and lack of political or special interest partiality that runs counter to purely charitable aims. One of the highlights of this is that when it comes to monetary donation, I currently support the Red Cross to the exclusion of all others, and actively oppose a number of other charities who help themselves to a much higher percentage of donations and who have higher ups who have fattened themselves scandalously on charitable donations (see: UNICEF) and oppose charities that have ulterior motives that supersede their commitment to giving (nearly all political charity groups, as well as most religious charity groups like Salvation Army, Catholic Charities USA, etc). Most noteworthy is that illegitimate charity organizations are so commonplace right now that it's good, solid advice never to give to charities that have called you do research, and then find the legitimate ones, and go to them. Sure, you'll be out some feelgood tote bags and cop/firefighter solidarity stickers for your cars, but those aren't really charities. They're scummy businesses that prey on people's charitable aims.

When it comes to donating your time, put your boots on the ground in rescue missions, soup kitchens, and emergency metropolitan food bank distribution. It's grim shit, especially in the winter and during cold snaps, but that's ultimately when people are in the highest degree of need. It's not going to be fun, but that's not what it's about.

No but really seriously if one or all or anyone of you donates $5 to my collection I will do a fucking dance for you. Naked, with no clothes on, sans pants.

For real.

When we hit fifty dollars I will suck you all off.

Not sure if Gary is trying to entice us or actually threatening us.

It's an enticement.

My auntie taught me how to snap a horses neck with one move. It's like hugging them, only with a downward *snap* move. It's quick.
