trawling the internet

ugh - wading through anti abortion drivel to find comments reflecting public opinion on sex ed tailored to international students is...mind numbing at best, painful at worst.

A few years back, I'd get all irritated and indignant at the responses I'm reading, "sex education encourages sex, blah blah blah" ... but today, today (perhaps because of tiredness) I just feel bored with it all.

It's tedious, monotonous, repetitive, boring, and often untrue.

Please, bore someone else with your dogma.
