Wow, I didn’t even know it…. but yesterday was National Stocking Day…. if you read my stamp post from yesterday you might have noticed the fishnets in the pic….. I’m so on top of it sometimes….
I just spotted a book of stamps in my makeup kit and have this vague memory of fashioning a strapless bra out of seven first class postage stamps to wear under my dress at a wedding in Maryland… I don't remember very much after that… I remember it was quite the topic of conversation at the reception, I definitely remember talking about my bra with a gay man, and I fear I may have flashed my contraption at him …. And I kind of remember it hurt when they came off…..

If you haven’t heard yet, read it here:
In a nutshell, on Tuesday, Hampton VA resident Daniel Riase was sentenced to five years prison time, with thirty years suspended, for crushing up the abortion drug RU-486 and giving it to his 19 year old girlfriend in a glass of milk. I-Shari Best told Riase of her pregnancy, and, well… he did not react well…. His first reaction was to yell and punch her in the stomach, and then he figured he’d play it cool, so he pretended to be excited about their future child….. and everything was all roses and butterflies until the milk incident last February.
Best, who at the time was 11 weeks pregnant, drank a glass of milk given to her by Riase and began bleeding, and was told at the Santara Clareplex Hospital that she had miscarried. Best didn’t think anything was up until she came across an e-mail receipt for the abortion pill misoprostol on Riase’s computer…..
Even more twisted than the boyfriends behavior, was the low, low, LOW strategy of attorney Ronald Smith, who tried to illicit sympathy from the jury on his client’s behalf by using the information that Best had already had two abortions……ummmmm…… I know my Law& Order from the 12 weeks I was on bedrest…….Objection?? Irrelevant???? Nice try.
Let’s make something clear here for douchebags like this attorney, or drooler’s like Riase…. in those other two cases, Best CHOSE to end her pregnancy…. not so much here. In fact, she had considered the abortion earlier, and had CHOSEN to go through with the pregnancy. Riase pleaded guilty in August to one count of aggravated malicious wounding leading to the involuntary termination of a woman’s pregnancy, and one count of adulterating a drink. It is ironically, one tragic moment where Pro-Choicers and Pro-Lifers just might see eye to eye.
Here in the US of A, we care about your Right to Life! Er, that is until you’re expelled from the womb, and then you’re on your own, kiddo. It came as no surprise to me that the new presidentially appointed head of Family Planning is “real-women-stay-married” Susan Orr, who believes that covering contraceptives is “not about choice, it’s not about health care. It’s about making everyone collaborators with the culture of death.”
If the 6.9 million children without insurance coverage at this moment got ya down…. It looks like a middle school in Maine is attempting to provide birth control pills to students without parental consent.
“Students must have permission to seek care at Portland’s King Student Health Center, but according to state law, the specifics of their doctors’ visits can remain confidential.”
Hmmmmm…….looks like they view contraceptives as a medical necessity.
She has fuller lips and poutier eyes, and skankier outfits. She looks borderline deformed in my honest opinion, but I could care less. Except, McDonald’s is giving them away in happy meals now and that has a lot of parents pissed.
I’m gonna ask the obvious question here… If you’re a parent trying to provide a commercial-free childhood
for your youngster…… ummm, why are you at McDonalds?
When I was a child I always had the feeling that Skeletor , yes, from He-man, followed me from room to room and was always turning the corner or lagging just beyond my perception.. as a result I ran around corners in the basement and skipped up the stairs two at a time.
I also had a fear of things lurking under my bed, especially of those things touching my FEET. In particular, of someone stabbing me with a hypodermic needle in the foot, paralyzing me, and then killing me while I watched….. this probably has something to do with my foot phobia… that and my Navy Seal uncle who liked to put my entire foot, leather saddle shoes and all, into his mouth.
I also made sure I looked down before I peed everytime…. and DAMN I’m glad I’m still a little neurotic.
Well, no shit!! Quel Surprise!!!! A new study published by Rutgers University disproves a theory that some women have tried to debunk since the beginning of time…….Yes, in contrary to the popular stereotype, most feminists are not hairy-legged, birkenstock-wearing, cat-loving, labia-licking, man-haters….nope.
And now for the stats because the academic in me is screaming that I need to cite and source and quantify this data. After polling over 500 American males and females, ranging in age from university undergraduates to older adults with more relationship experience, researchers found that females who identified as feminists were more likely to report greater sexual satisfaction, and healthy long-term relationships than those who did not identify as feminists. Males that reported to having a feminist partner were more likely to describe themselves as being in stable and sexually satisfying relationships……… meow!
