Wednesday Reads: WTFF?!Posted: December 1, 2021 Filed under: just because 66 Comments
What the fuckity fuck?
That is all I’m gonna say about that.
Cartoons are from the Cagle website:
I’ve been dealing with a cold since Thanksgiving…so just adding some links below:
This thread is tough to read:
That’s it for now…one more thing:
This is an open thread.
Let’s see what SCOTUS does today with abortion rights…
I tried listening to the questioning, but I think I’d rather read about it later. Listening to this guy from Mississippi is too enraging.
Adoption isn’t everything these white christianist goons make it out to be. I’ve seen adoption really damage children clear into their adulthood.
So being pregnant doesn’t have a great impact on women’s lives and careers?
What is she smoking?
Seriously, it isn’t always about not wanting to raise a child. It’s also about not wanting to be pregnant. Pregnancy and childbirth still kill women. Not to mention all of the physical changes to a woman’s body that can be permanent and life changing.
And finally, the last time I checked no person, not a fetus, not an embryo, not a 16 year old child, not Amy Coney Barrett, has the right to use another person’s body AGAINST THEIR WILL to stay alive.
Exactly. You can’t take organs from a corpse without explicit permission given before death.
But women? Like the cartoon in the post. For the guy agonizing about when viability starts, the incubator isn’t even on the map.
Yes. And, sadly, many adopted children are abused.
WTAF? “Should not have an impact on their lives.” Abortion is safer than childbirth.
Like a fetus is a little person with an adult brain who can think about their life and what they want? Jesus fucking Christ! These people are insane.
Barrett didn’t just talk about adoption. She mentioned those drop-off places where you can abandon a baby. So women are supposed to carry a pregnancy to term, give birth, and then go through the life-long trauma of giving up a child. That is slavery.
That is what happened back in the ’50s and ’60s. Many women who had to give up their children for adoption never got over the pain and loss.
This is 2017 so it still happens.
/*Picks up jaw off floor*/
Textbook example of the Pro-Life Until Birth philosophy.
They believe in slavery, obviously.
The women assaulters on the bench or both mental midgets. Kavanaugh is an idiot and he thinks he’s clever. He should be off herding goats somewhere.
I’d worry about the goats if Kavanaugh was supposed to take care of them.
I’m too upset to listen.
Really. Like that cartoon says, “When are they humans with rights?” and you just know he’s not even imagining that could apply to the incubator doing the work.
That’s just the “host body,” don’t you know.
It’s not even a damn frickin’ tadpole. Not even a frog egg, which can develop on its own outside the mother frog.
Indicted? Elementary justice demands he be IN JAIL by now. If the law can’t deliver that (I know it can’t) then the law desperately needs realigning. (I know we’re not getting that either.)
Given the number of mutations in the crucial area in omicron, Moderna and others aren’t wrong to fear the worst. *But*: the early evidence out of South Africa is that it does not escape current vaccines easily.
I was glad to hear that and I hope it holds up under peer-reviewed inquiry.
Well of course the Moderna guy thinks we’ll need new vaccines all the time. $$$$$$ But I agree with quixote that so far the medical findings don’t indicate this for the omicron.
The business about First Ladies and doing all the Home Goddess stuff?
Exactly. Jill Biden did a great job. BUT why is it her job at all? She’s a PhD early childhood educator. They ought to be covering her view of that aspect of the infrastructure bills!
I do have to say I’m glad that a woman with a Ph.D. in early childhood education did the decorations with the message they convey. Melania’s idea of decorations and redoing the rose garden is scorched earth and nightmares. She needs to be put in charge of healing our children and should be there first one they send to school shootings. Someone who knows how children develop, learn, and emotionally process things is really needed for that kind of thing. And send the second gentleman with her too on that.
I do think she should be in charge of selling preschools for all. I also wish she could influence them to use Montessori methods to which are far better for young children than any other learning methodolgy.
Agree. I do worry she’ll get the Hillary treatment if she is involved with policy, just like they did with HRC and universal health coverage back during Bill’s administration.
Texas is already working on that.
It’s your birthday? ***fireworks *** Happy birthday! (It’s my birthday, too, yeah! 😀 ) (Soon, that is.)
When is it?
Happy birthday Ann!
Happy Birthday BB!!!
Happy birthday, BB!
That’s a lovely choice of artwork to celebrate Ann’s day, Dak.
Thanks, guys. I’m very old–74. I lived long enough to see my country go back to the way it was when I was in high school–only worse.
When I came to Boston at age 19, even birth control was illegal here. All these years later, women are still not free. And now we have to deal with the trans fanatics and the politically correct ACLU and NARAL talking about “pregnant people.”
I’m getting tons of fundraising emails from the Democrats, Planned Parenthood, etc. My response is the same every time:
My answer to these emails remains the same. I will never vote for a republican. But will not get one penny of my money or one second of my time until you start prioritizing the rights and safety of women and girls over the feelings of men with fetishes who want to wear my oppression as a costume and get off on forcing me to call them “ma’am”.
Happy Birthday BB!
We have to keep faith that as long as we never give up a return to sanity is possible.
Thanks Ron. I hope you are right.
You’re definitely right, Ron. Look at all of history. “The meek shall inherit the earth” is not a hope. It’s a prediction. The only problem is it can take a thousand years.
Oh well. As Hillary said, “Onward.”
There’s no end to Trump’s vileness.
This is awful.
This is the mother of the school shooter in Michigan.
I thought they were being so silent about things about the shooter and then it came up he got charged with terrorism there was something going on. Plus, no one knew why the father gave the kid a gun and the parents zipped their lips.
Kids knew something was going on. I read an interview with a mother who let her son stay home because he had heard rumors.
Yay! She will win this time.
Much needed good news!
Yay! Gov. Abrams!
Georgia turning more blue!
