Gah. Note to self: playing dumb to be accepted is as lame now as it was when you were 13. Why would anyone want to be perceived as less intelligent than they are? Mystery…Also, ass-kissing? Also still sucks. Moving. On.
Okay den my peeps. Here’s a great conversation from yesterday wherein the Coach and I figure out that a) Wiccans are really only the least of the problem, and b) he is a women hater.
11:11 AM Charles: Just got around to reading that article
11:14 AM me: yes
she went to wiccans for christ’s sake
I’m less bothered by that
Than the whole “I’ll just drink this and miscarriage, because that’s totally not an abortion”
11:15 AM The hell do you think an abortion is?
but a miscarriage is something that just happens to you
not something you do…
Even if you choose to start the process
11:16 AM me: oh yeah
and keep your freaking skirt down if you can’t be trusted to be responsible
jesus God in heaven
it’s pretty simple
11:17 AM Charles: No joke
That’s what I don’t understand
“Oh, I had to get an abortion because I didn’t love my husband…”
11:18 AM And the sentence about the second guy makes me curious
“This time, a condom broke during my first intimate encounter with an older guy who was happy to squire me around New York but would have fled at news of a baby.”
Would have fled?
Did you even bother to ask?
me: no, she didn’t
11:19 AM she’s blaming the guys and illustrating one of my main points of contention with the “my body, my choice” crowd
there always seem to be other people at fault, or the reason why they need an abortion
they never actually just make the choice and own it as THEIR choice
it gets on my nerves
11:20 AM me: so, it’s their choice
but not their fault?
i fucking hate that kind of inconsistency
11:21 AM Charles: Well, there are certainly people who admit they just didn’t want a baby
But my whole thing is that there are points along the way to make that decision
11:22 AM That don’t involve terminating a pregnancy
me: but then you have to not get busy in the burger king bathroom, as it were
what kind of fun is that?
Charles: Yeah, sorry to be such a drag
11:23 AM me: you hate women
Now, just some links because I’m disappointed. I mean, I hold certain people up to be smarter than some of the ridiculous stuff I see within my own social group, and outside of it. And it’s a bummer to learn that choosing to be an idiot is, I guess, a viable path because the payoff is so great (?). Drag…
This cat looks almost exactly like Z. But I’ve never had this vantage point with him. Or this conversation. Ahem.
It’s a strange truth but sometimes Cracked.com teaches me things.
All the talk of eugenics lately puts me in the mind of this movie. Seriously, you should watch it. Then we’ll talk about the wonder of genetic engineering.
It is my work to be concerned about such things as these so would love your thoughts…
That succotash looks glorious.
I fear the male version of Showgirls but Channing Tatum can dance so let’s give it a whirl…
Heh. Keep it real Harper.
I have no idea why but I had a dream last night where I ran around saying the “The penis mightier” to everyone I saw, and then ran away laughing. Lord. I’m 12.
One from back in the day. You know I love a good cover.
