    “Trivers’ statement is somewhat more difficult to stomach, but to say that he’s not sensible and lacks compassion is in itself an insensible and uncompassionate statement.”
    Well, he basically decided that those children were totes not children and therefore worthy the protection children are entitled to is totes compassionate.

    I stopped hating on Lego Friends and you should, too.
    I hate that Lego turned everybody’s Lego into boys’ Lego over 20 years.
    Are there some completely horrible “girls are only interested in fashion and shopping” sets? Yep, and we should be critical of them. But unless you’re equally critical of the “violence is the only solution” toxic…[Read more]

    It’s amazing
    People will come up with the most pulled out of their imaginary and completely impossible scenarios to “prove” that rape and a Person with uterus’s right to bodily autonomy are NOT moral absolutes and that we must not see these things as black and white but look at the greater good. Maybe it’s because the victims of rape and the…[Read more]

    That was a nice fuck-up, wasn’t it? I remembered to type “person” first and then defaulted to “women”. I’m sorry, I’ll try harder next time.

    Tragic abortions are the ones where the pregnant person would like to remain pregnant and have a child but cannot for some reasons.
    If “pro-lifers” were actually pro life, they’d put their efforts into helping those women, for example by lobbying for better protection of pregnant women. A friend of mine spent about 20 weeks mostly lying on her…[Read more]

    • I love this comment. It really shows how messed up the people who claim to be about the sanctity of life are. We have the resources to provide and care for people, but we would rather shame people for poverty, or for making decisions to protect themselves.

    I remember that back in the 1980’s there were toys for kids. They don’t exist anymore. Nowadays there are toys for boys and toys for girls (and never the twain shall meet). But good marketing, because no family would let their little boy use their sister’s pink stuff, let’s go and buy it a second time!

    I also want to add: It is very unlikely that he ever knows about what I wrote above.
    After all I’m just some weird nobody with a internet access. But he’s probably aware that there are people on the net who support him (and I hope that he and other guys who are genuinly interested in supporting male rape victims do notice who supports them and…[Read more]

    I have no fucking clue who he is. I don’t watch TV much, I hardly make it to the movies, I don’t follow celebrity anything. Just not my cuppa tea.
    Somebody was raped and they have my support. Everything else is irrelevant.

    Seriously, whatever offense those women have committed, it usually stands in no comparison to the reaction they’re getting.

    Also, if you think that reporting accurately on what you said is libel, you should probably pay more attention to the things you say.

    Nope. Shermer issued a cease and desist and the let his time run out on actually filing a lawsuit.

    “In reality, there are no side effects to the shot aside from minor bruising around the injection. Doctors could avoid this by giving the Vitamin K as an oral dose, but studies show the oral dose is much less effective than the intramuscular because it may not properly absorb.

    When speculating about the distant past, I would always like to use a time travelling machine to go back to the point in time when our ancestors figured out that sex and pregnancy are related. That must have been one great big cognitive process, probably several times in different places.
    Because one of the things such speculations also always…[Read more]
