i died laughing from its precise and wicked accuracy when i read it.
the always insightful and intelligent moby wrote it.
ah, the conservative right-wing in america...
i love them.
i'm on a few email lists for conservative organizations, just so i can
by their crazy.
so today i get an email from the american family association.
and what are they upset about?
are they upset about the 36,000 iraqi civilians who were killed in 2006?
are they upset about the degradation of the environment?
are they upset about egregious wage disparity and the effects that it's
having on our civilization?
are they upset about the effect that having hundreds of thousands of
on extended duty in iraq is having on families back in the u.s?
they're upset that fox broadcasting showed a woman wearing a t-shirt
during a football game
with, as they put it, 'the "f" word'.
(oh, p.s-the 'f' word is 'fuck', as routinely seen in the new yorker
and other publications).
so breaking up tens of thousands of families in the u.s so that troops
can be stationed in iraq
for a war that never should've started, that doesn't trouble the
a word describing the action that resulted in all of us being here
aka-slang describing coitus, without which none of us would be alive?
if you're pro-life don't you kind of have to be pro-fucking?
you can't really have life without fucking, right?
well, i guess you can have ivf and other high-tech forms of
fertilization, but 99.9% of the time
life results from good old fashioned penis-in-vagina fucking, right?
(and i'm sorry, but 'fuck' & 'fucking' are words. just words. nothing
to get offended by).
why are people offended by sex/coitus/fucking/etc, when it/they are the
cornerstones of our very lives?
if our parents hadn't at some point gotten busy in the back of a car
after drinking some
pabst blue ribbon none of us would be here.
our parents fucked: thus we were conceived(and, truthfully, we were
probably not conceived
during some well planned tender lovemaking, we were probably conceived
in the back
of a car or in a bathroom at a dive bar. that's just how the universe
works....the universe can't wait around for us to conceive in perfectly
choreographed ways, life is intrepid and will thus find it's way in,
whether it's in the back of a car or on a shag rug in front of a fire
in a ski house in vermont).
movies get pg ratings when they show people being shot and killed, but
if you see a mans
penis or a womans vagina the movie gets an nc-17 rating?
why are we offended by body parts that we all have and bodily functions
that we all engage
in(well, if we're lucky)?
years ago i asked a rhetorical question: 'what would god be more
offended by, people being needlessly killed and maimed, or a bare
breast on tv?'
breasts are miraculous body parts that enable us to feed our children,
they're seen by the religious right as pornographic?
i do believe that future generations are going to build a time machine
and come back
and ask us a simple question: are you insane?
