On Saturday night, coming back from a poetry show, I saw a herd of individuals walking up and down Ariapita Avenue, heading to or coming from various Halloween parties in the area.
We counted four Jokers and one Bane (took us all damn night to find Bane, when we did most of the nerds among us almost cried).
I lost count of ‘sexy’ costumes. Some of them I couldn’t even make out what it was a ‘sexy’ representation of. Some were sexy Alices; others were just short skirts and thigh-highs. Some were sexy vampires and sexy fairies; others bared no fangs and spread no wings.
Costumes that I think will successfully subvert the Slutty X Halloween costume trope:
- Slutty Conservatively Dressed Woman
- Slutty Wealthy White Judeo-Christian Man
- Slutty Jesus Christ
- Slutty X (where X is a monster, presented as scarily as possible - some examples below)
- Slutty Zombie, but…
I am writing you this letter to let you know, in case that you didn’t, that slut-shaming makes you a fucking monster, and doing it to the point of someone’s suicide only to verbally erase its importance makes you lower than dogshit.
Yes, I’m that fucking angry.
Yes. Yes. Thank you.
Real things said by real people in a position of power. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
While we’re at it, let’s meet Congressman Joe Walsh, who says that the risk of dying in childbirth is just something abortionists made up to justify their baby-killing ways:
This is an issue that opponents of life throw out there to make us look unreasonable. There’s no such exception as life of the mother, and as far as health of the mother, same thing, with advances in science and technology. Health of the mother has been, has become a tool for abortions any time under any reason.
With modern technology and science, you can’t find one instance … there is no such exception as life of the mother, and as far as health of the mother, same thing.
Between science and our magical ladybits, who needs birth control? Or doctors?
Meet Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock.
You know, this is that issue for that every candidates for federal, or even state office, faces. And I, too, certainly stand for life,” said Mourdock, after both Democrat Joe Donnelly and Libertarian Andrew Horning had identified as pro-life, though Donnelly also stated his support for an exception in cases of rape. “I know there are some who disagree, and I respect their point of view. But I believe that life begins at conception. The only exception I have, to have an abortion, is in that case of the life of the mother.
I’ve struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from god. And even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.
But when someone made the logical connection that, for a pregnancy to be God-approved, the act that caused it would then likely be God-approved as well:
Mourdock explained after the debate he did not believe God intended the rape, but that God is the only one who can create life.
“Are you trying to suggest somehow that God preordained rape, no I don’t think that,” Mourdock said. “Anyone who would suggest that is just sick and twisted. No, that’s not even close to what I said.”
Isn’t it, though?
On the off chance that you haven’t seen this company’s awesome response to a guy who has felt deceived by the corporate portrayal of ‘that time of the month’…
I’m trying to figure out how to get in the woman binder…
Real women don’t attempt to “fit in” anywhere, they just … are.
Wait… what? I was talking about Mitt Romney’s “binder full of women” and the physical impossibility of fitting into a binder. “Real Women” my arse, by the way…
Hey pretty lady. Got 3:20 to spare? You won’t regret it :)
Don’t worry, Diana. I get you.
The Huffington Post has obtained the transcript of a 2000 phone call made by pro-life Congressman Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee, in which he pressured his former mistress to have an abortion.
In the call DesJarlais asks his lover to terminate a pregnancy.
“You told me you’d have an abortion, and now we’re getting too far along without one,” he tells the woman who he met when she was a patient of his.
They also discuss whether he will accompany her to the clinic for the aforementioned procedure.
“You told me you would have time to go with me and everything,” she says.
“I said, if I could, I would, didn’t I? And I will try,” he replies. “If I can [find] time, you’re saying you still will?”
Let me guess: he was a special exception because his abortion was the only moral abortion?
Oooh, let’s see how he’s voted on abortion issues in the past!
Yes on the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act
Yes on barring Obamacare from covering abortions
Yes on prohibiting federal funding for abortion
Yes on defunding Planned Parenthood
What a sack of shit. And yes, she was his patient. Unbelievable.
You disgusting motherfucker. Words fail me…
But it’s okay, y’all! It was taken out of context! Seriously:
Freshman Rep. Roger Rivard (R-Rice Lake) in December discussed a case with the Chetek Alert newspaper in which a 17-year-old high school senior was charged with sexual assault for having sex with an underage girl in the school’s band room.
The newspaper quoted him as saying his father warned him, “Some girls rape easy” - meaning that after the fact they can change what they say about whether sex was consensual. On Wednesday, Rivard told the Journal Sentinel that the article did not provide full context of his comments and that his father’s exact words had been slightly different from how they appeared in the Chetek Alert.
He told the Journal Sentinel that his father had advised him not to have premarital sex, and he took that seriously. “He also told me one thing, ‘If you do (have premarital sex), just remember, consensual sex can turn into rape in an awful hurry,’ ” Rivard said. “Because all of a sudden a young lady gets pregnant and the parents are madder than a wet hen and she’s not going to say, ‘Oh, yeah, I was part of the program.’ All that she has to say or the parents have to say is it was rape because she’s underage. And he just said, ‘Remember, Roger, if you go down that road, some girls,’ he said, ‘they rape so easy.’
Roger Rivard, meet Todd Akin. Todd, meet Roger.
You both can take your victim blaming and go straight to hell. Context doesn’t matter here. In fact, the context in this case makes it even worse. I just don’t even know what to say here…
