Things You Might Have Missed

Guess what guys?  If some prison guard fucks you up the ass, the FBI says it ain’t rape.

DC as a tax free zone?

These Russian artists are ballsalicious and I am seriously afraid for them.

These pics of makeshift helmets in Egypt are pure awesome.  This letter is pretty funny too.  And as long as we are talking about Egypt, here are some tips about how not to say stupid shit about it.

Some woman in Mt. Pleasant is actually going to jail for her kid’s school absences.  When I had 43 absences in a 45 day high school quarter my mom said, “They are going to come take me to jail.” I just rolled my eyes.  Guess mom is slightly less crazy than I thought.

O.k. radical, abolitionist vegans.  Let me ask you this.  You think that eating animals is speciesism. In this future world where no person eats animals, will other animals also not eat animals?  Do you think lions are no longer going to hunt?  If not, then aren’t you claiming that people are morally superior to lions?  Isn’t that a form of speciesism?

What do you think of when you see a confederate flag?  I see pretty much what this artist sees.  Ren sees things a bit differently.  And this anarchist has an essay about it that is worth reading.

Just in case you thought your congressperson wasn’t doing important stuff for you here in DC, you can feel relieved that both dems and repubs are making sure sports teams are properly and formally congratulated.

Read why there will be no Black history month posts at Womanist Musings.

I have been posting links to all the murders that get ignored (and often remain unsolved) in DC. Meanwhile, do you know what the cops here are doing?  They are busy busting women who work in massage parlors.  Are you fucking kidding me?  Does anyone really give a shit if people are getting happy endings?

And then, of course, there are the 11 murdered women found in New Mexico.  Police have no clue. Probably too busy trying to bust women for prostitution.

You may have caught that article about how men have shitty sex lives because of too much porn. Violet Blue has the response to that.  (NSFW)

So DC is busting women for massages.  New New Mexico has a serial killer on the loose that nobody gives a crap about because they are killing prostitutes.  New York magazine is claiming porn is ruining men’s sex lives.  Meanwhile Germany’s brothels are offering services specially geared toward senior citizens.  Damn puritans ruined this country.

I was actually going to write a post very similar to this – on the difference between debate and dialogue.

And finally, Malawi wants to make it a crime to fart.  Not kidding.
