Oh dear…

Someone just found my blog by searching, “a giraffe with wings having sex”.

I write about abortion and get, like, 30 hits from totally normal people. But put a picture of a giraffe up and *bam* the furries come out… The internet is so weird.

Abortion

10 06 2009

Abortion debates tend to be either very polite and condescending, vague and distant and unanchored in concrete life, or of the screaming angry variety. I have a new proposition. Why don’t we acknowledge that educated, well thought out sharing of information and thoughts will do more good than anything else? Protesting with signs gives no real education to the passerby who are the target audience, and things of this nature tend to lead to people who have no real idea of facts, statistics, or procedures bullying others.

Another important idea; everyone, educate yourself and then don’t be afraid to say what you think and why. Yes, some (often many) people will despise you. However, half the problems regarding this issue stem from the fact that people talk in generalities, grey areas, and maybes. Saying simply, “Well, I guess it’s wrong, except sometimes, you know, like incest or whatever,” does not constitute an opinion.

I will now state my opinions on abortion.

One- it should be legal until the third trimester, unless it poses a serious health risk (physical or psychological) to the mother. I emphasize serious. I say it should be legal for the first two trimesters because in all reality, this gives a woman adequate time to discover her pregnancy and make a decision. Most congenital defects which might influence a decision can be diagnosed in this time frame as well.

Two- I find it perfectly morally acceptable to terminate a child because it will be mentally retarded or otherwise severely disabled in some way. The parents, whose lives will be irrevocably changed, are worth more than a fetus. I say this openly, and yes, I’m fully aware of how horrible it sounds. This doesn’t change the fact that I personally think a fully grown woman’s dreams, plans, desires and beliefs are more important than a half-developed child who will feel only brief pain.

Three- On a slight tangent, I believe that our governments should institute mandatory I.Q. testing. If the I.Q. of a person falls below the score of, say, 89 (the high end of the dull or slow intelligence range) they should be provided and educated on the proper use of birth control until the age of 18, and if their I.Q. is still below the acceptable number, they should be sterilized. To put it frankly, I believe stupid people should not have children. If they feel the urge to procreate, they should adopt one of the world’s countless children instead of passing on their undesirable genes.

Four- I respect beliefs contrary to the ones I have expressed above, and provided it stays polite and respectful, I am happy to have a conversation about them. However, I will fight to the death for my right to have an abortion if I feel the need, especially considering that I have always made it a point to stay educated regarding my sexual health, and the possible if unlikely results of my activities are included in that. Whittled down to the essentials, I find the idea of a forced pregnancy terrifying, do not want to go the adoption route because I believe our world is hideously overcrowded, and again, I think I am more important than a child. A side note- I will fight to the death for other’s right to not have an abortion, and to speak their minds about it, as well.

Five- Don’t use the argument of, “Well, this woman here decided not to have an abortion, and now she wouldn’t give up her baby boy for anything in this world.” This is illogical and merely a statement of the blindingly obvious. Of course she loves her baby now, it’s a natural instinct that nearly every woman would experience. Of course she would die for her baby now. This doesn’t change the fact that had she gone through with the abortion, she would not feel these feelings because there would be no baby. Not every woman, not nearly as many as are portrayed, go through racking guilt and regret after abortions, though some do.

Writing this was cleansing for me; I am so sick and tired of knocking heads with people who either refuse to lay down in black and white what they believe or try and deafen me into submission. I would add something to the effect that I am not a bad person, but I believe that I shouldn’t have to justify my beliefs. Thank you for reading, and any comments are welcome.





It’s Rainin’ Men

Hallelujah!

Following in the great footsteps of Doe Deere, Coilhouse, and others, I’m posting a list of the sexiest eye candy out there. Just so you’re prepared, this is being judged strictly on looks, by a hormonal teenage girl. It’s like one of those cheesy pin-up calendars except with a Y chromosome.

*ahem* Now here, in no particular order, are the wiiiiinnners:

Gives cannibalism a whole new meaning....

I first saw Gaspard Ulliel, a French actor, playing Hannibal Lector in ‘Hannibal Rising.’ He somehow manages to be incredibly delicious even while eating someone’s cheeks… His boyish smile is deadly mixed with his sleepy eyes… And the suspenders? Yes please!

 

Sexpot... villain... who can tell?

Zach Quinto has starred in numerous sitcoms. He’s currently the incredibly hot villain Sylar on NBC’s show Heroes, and is slated to play Spock! Nerd points… check. Smouldering stare off into the distance… check. Just look at those magnificent eyebrows.

A sculpted god.

Michael Phelps… well, duh. From the Olympics? He’s been caught letting out a little more of his wild side… grabbing strippers, smoking weed… which I have to say, although I doubt he’s a true badass, it’s nice to see him letting loose a little. He’s got an incredible body, a cute crooked smile, and loves his mama! The dedication to his sport/passion is totally hot but honestly? Mostly I dream about his abs…

Comedian Andy Samberg (a Leo like me! Natch!) boasts the winning trio of an an adorably mischievous smirk, puppydog eyes, and the kind of messy bedhead hair I love best. You know, the kind that looks really soft. A sense of humor is always nice too, yet it’s his boy-next-door-but-better looks that I can’t ignore.

Oooh, a redhead. Nothing gets me as tingly as a redhead; I’m not sure, but I think this fetish dates back to my stint at a 6th grade church camp, where a cute redheaded boy and I snuck off behind the games shed for 10 really awesome minutes… But I digress. Just look into snowboarder Shaun White’s hazel eyes and bask in the glow of that Titian hair.

Oooh, Axl Rose…. a potent combination of raw talent, a gritty wildcat voice, uninhibited slithery dance moves, and total rock star status. Just go listen to his primal scream at the beginning of “Welcome to the Jungle’ and tell me you’re not all hot and bothered…

Everybody knows Vin Diesel, right? I like him best as an insouciant racer in the Fast and Furious movies, but god damn, he heats up every movie he’s in.

William Beckett from the Academy Is… is just gorgeous. He’s got that cute skinny boy thing goin’ on, totally cut amazing cheekbones, a glorious voice and a wry sense of humor (he appeared as a dandified vampire in a all Out Boy Music Video). Just gaze and admire his beautiful face…

Tyson Ritter from the All American Rejects is simply, well, hot as hell. I’ll leave it at that….





Virginity! Getcher virginity here!

13 09 2008

So if you haven’t heard, a 22-year old woman is auctioning off her virginity at a Nevada brothel in order to pay for school…

Wow, right?

Now, personally, I think that this is indeed prostitution- sex for money. However, it’s a one-time thing, and she’s using the money to better herself. I’m really not sure how I feel about this. Think what her family must be going through! Also, what if the man who buys her virginity is just… disgusting? How do you feel about this?
