What the Actual Fuck

Dinosaurs, and Sexual Assault

Y’all The Stupid Hurts

I was browsing Twitter and saw some comments regarding the Tangerine Shitgibbon’s comments on the horrible, scary, destructive fires ravaging California. Basically, the Forestry department is at fault here because they abused their funding, and failed to take up all the pine needles.

It makes my head spin that this idjit was elected to run our country. He’s of low intelligence, is incredibly inelegant, crass, rude, and completely clueless about the things people actually care about.

I watched the results roll in over the night of the last election and while Team Blue didn’t sweep evening away, we did okay. We lost the Senate but got a pretty solid grip on the House.

Do I expect to see amazing changes? No. But I do expect to see them fighting back against Team Red and helping us win a lot of small victories which will add up.

And more then that, I’m hoping that people will see even with this year’s iffy voter turnout, we can effect change, and the next election will have an even better turnout which will hopefully win us the Senate too.

The “Grand Old Party” might be been the right thing way back when, but we’re well beyond the dark ages of human rights. We can and should do better. We all deserve that.

Cucumber Cleanse – The Latest WTF!?!

So Dr. Jen Gunter, our favorite “don’t put that in your vagina” advocate, posted this on her blog.

Apparently (and my Google-fu confirms) its now a thing to peel a cucumber, and insert it into your vagina with an in-out twisting motion for twenty minutes to “cleanse” the vagina.

Um… how about no. The vagina is self-cleaning and there are a million reasons why you should not do this. But apparently some vagina owners still need to be told that. Ugh.

Rihanna, Fenty, & Her Tits

I saw a clip from this video on Twitter, and looked at the comments. I know, never look at the comments, right? Anyway, the first comment I see is a woman raving about how wonderful it is that she’s putting out a product that can be used by all women. Women of every race, shade, color, tone. That even if its just make-up, its bringing women together.

That’s a great comment and one I agree with.

Then I kept reading. I’d say about 30% of the comments were positive- from bringing women together to look how far she’s come! Okay, that’s all good. But the rest of the comments. Were. All. About. Her Tits.

OMG Why isn’t she wearing a bra?

NGL, all I could see was her tits….

So indecent. If its about the make-up why are her tits out?

Of course I’m paraphrasing, but that’s the gist of it. People getting upset on the internet over a successful, confident woman who chooses not to wear a bra. Have they seen her at any other time? She goes braless a lot. Hell, I go braless a lot and my breasts are nowhere near as beautiful and perky as hers. My mom goes braless whenever she doesn’t have to work.

And guess what?

It doesn’t matter!

No one is going to die because there’s some free-balling breasts out there. Nothing terrible is going to happen, besides some bad attitudes from people who believe women should be ashamed of their bodies. People who believe women should always fulfill some silly social construct of appropriate and pretty.

Wear a bra. Don’t wear a bra. I don’t care. Its your body and your choice and fuck the people that think they should be able to dictate what you wear. And Rihanna? Rock on with your bad self. The rest of you ladies? Stop tearing each other down over the state of your tits. Please.

Hyster- Herster- What?

The removal of a woman’s uterus is called a hysterectomy and not a hersterectomy because hyster- is from the Greek word for uterus. Also, women do not gush blood from an open wound between their legs for a week and would be hospitalized if they were men. No. We’re not magic or somehow super amazing mysterious creatures who can bleed horribly for 7 continuous days and not die.  Menstrual fluid is mostly sloughed tissue from inside the uterus with comparatively little actual blood and the majority of women lose less then a pint during their entire cycle.

It’s really not that amazing. You were married for twenty years and had two kids with your wife. How do you not know that? This is very basic human biology that you have no excuse for not knowing.
