"I Object!" "On What Grounds?" "I Don't Know...How About Silliness?"
Let's make a list of the absolute, no doubt about it, stupidest reasons to kill someone. There's gotta be some really stupid reasons out there. Hell, while casually surfing around today I found at least two articles rife with stupid shit.
Check out this piece from The Nation as a great example of how Xian assholes are trying to control women in much the same way the extremist Islamic dickhats do. Bridget Maher, a rider of the short bus that is religious sanctimony, said, "Giving the HPV vaccine to young women could be potentially harmful, because they may see it as a license to engage in premarital sex." You know, I can't count the number of times I was about to get laid and the woman looked back over her shoulder to say, "Hey, maybe we shouldn't do this - there's a good chance I'll get human papilloma virus when I'm sixty." It's such a goddamn boner-buster. Denying women the opportunity for safe abortions and birth control is...well, author Katha Pollitt says it best, "It's honor killing on the installment plan."
Who the FUCK is Bridget Maher to tell women she's never met who and when to have sex with someone?! New Flash: (drumroll, please...) Just about everyone has premarital sex. Hahahahahaha - I know that is news to you, Bridget, which is why I'm so happy to be the one to tell you. A test drive is a critical part of the decision to buy the car or not, and both women and men need it. Maybe you want your wedding night to be a fumbling, non-orgasmic festival of crying and shame, but (as odd as this may sound to you) many of us don't agree with your view of "morals".
Of course, in the category of Stupid Shit, no one takes the hummus like Muslims. Check out this article and weep for the state of humanity. Three people killed for what? Wearing shorts. Yeah, you read that correctly. And it's not like they were fat chicks with spandex stretched over their dunes of flesh, vainly trying to hold in the goat-stuffed girth that so badly needs a Delta Burkha; no, they were tennis players Nasser Ali Hatem and Wissam Adel Auda and Coach Hussein Ahmed Rashid. Olympic athletes shot dead in the street for showing their fucking legs.
Where is the outrage? It's right here, in my gut.
