This just in: Utah sucks.
2001-07-17 03:10:21 PM  
Finally! A picture!!!
2001-07-17 03:12:39 PM  
I wouldnt call the cops, I would call my buddies 8-)
2001-07-17 03:14:01 PM  
That's just wrong.

Glad I don't live in Utah, I regularly go outside in a sports bra. I can't believe someone would get charged just for being outside in a *swim suit*. If that were the case, my older sister would have been arrested several thousand times over... ;)

Some lawyer and is going to make him/herself and this woman a lot of money. The wording of the statute is so vague as to what might offend people it's worse than asinine.
2001-07-17 03:17:21 PM  
My neighbour mows her yard in her shorts and sports bra all the time. No one in our neighbourhood has called the cops yet, and they better not. Ever.
2001-07-17 03:20:02 PM  
I saw the headline to that story this morning and thought of Utah right away. I must have psychic powers.
2001-07-17 03:20:54 PM  
I'd guess the main compliant was either "My wife doesn't look like that! Call the cops!" or the wife's side "I don't look like that! Call the cops!"

What bothers me most is she was sexually harrassed and the cops refused to do anything or tell her who filed the complaint yet when someone called them about her, they show up and cite her for lewd behavior. I guess it'd be legal in Utah to rape a female as long as she was dressed in a manner "asking for it". Scary how they pick and choose the laws they want to enforce.
2001-07-17 03:24:31 PM  
After seeing the picture, I think I agree with the neighbors
2001-07-17 03:27:32 PM  
I thought she looked pretty hot...
2001-07-17 03:30:12 PM  
I think it was more like, I don't want my husband looking at that.
2001-07-17 03:30:41 PM  
Check my reply to your question in the post "The most lopsided trades in sports history."
2001-07-17 03:34:09 PM  
I think she looks pretty damn good for 40, hell I'd do her. Course I'd do a lawn sprinkler.
2001-07-17 03:34:32 PM  
Drew-I hope my wife looks that good past 40.
2001-07-17 03:42:42 PM  
FARK UTAH! Maybe if they had any open water they could swim in, they wouldn't be so damned prudish.

Hey! UTAH! People don't wearing full-body bathing suits anymore. Buy a farking life. shiat.
2001-07-17 03:45:47 PM  
haha, they think thats skimpy...
topless maid services? woohoo! i didnt know they had that!
2001-07-17 03:47:03 PM  
Damn mormons.
2001-07-17 03:48:18 PM  
A combination of four-letter words that are totally repulsive...

2001-07-17 03:51:48 PM  
Unfortunately, I live in Utah. I hate this farking state. *sigh*
2001-07-17 04:25:59 PM  
I would love to be reading FARK on day and see "Utah Surrenders!"
2001-07-17 04:27:48 PM  
If I were her the next time I went out to mow the lawn I would wrap myself in the forbidden "Victoria Secrets" poster...and see how they like them apples!

I guess it'd be legal in Utah to rape a female as long as she was dressed in a manner "asking for it". Scary how they pick and choose the laws they want to enforce.

Well, if they believe in God's law in the bible, then, yes. Their rules on rape make me want to burn that book.

Deuteronomy 22:
23 Suppose a man meets a young woman, a virgin who is engaged to be married, and he has sexual intercourse with her. If this happens within a town,
24 you must take both of them to the gates of the town and stone them to death. The woman is guilty because she did not scream for help. The man must die because he violated another man's wife. In this way, you will cleanse the land of evil.
25 But if the man meets the engaged woman out in the country, and he rapes her, then only the man should die. 26 Do nothing to the young woman; she has committed no
crime worthy of death. This case is similar to that of someone who attacks and murders a neighbor.
27 Since the man raped her out in the country, it must be assumed that she screamed, but there was no one to rescue her.
28 If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged,
29 he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.

50 shekels... To rape whoever you want. That's the price of a woman, by the bible...

SLC, despite being the home of the LDS church, is probably the most reasonable city in Utah. We even have a Democrat for a mayor! Admittedly, SLC is still pretty awful relative to the civilized world, but it's a bastion of sanity compared to the rest of Utah. Please note that this took place in West Point, which is well north of SLC and full of people who apparently like living right on the shore of a brackish lake that smells like a port-a-potty after a chili festival. It's also pretty close to Ogden, which has the highest mullet-per-capita of any place I've ever seen.
2001-07-17 04:39:56 PM  
"fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her."

I like to think of that as fifty pieces of silver from the man for the rape and the rest of the woman's life to make the mans life a living hell!
2001-07-17 04:45:28 PM  
It's obviously politically motivated. The woman's trying to loosen uptight right morals in Utah. She should be given a medal for bravery! She also ran for council. You can imagine her neighbours' envy and hatred, which seems to have prejudiced the cops. Someone taking pictures and yelling and they do nothing.
Man the USA is one crazy farking place.

Leave this babe alone. And try to be helpful. "Oh Miss... there...right behind missed a weed!"
2001-07-17 04:52:53 PM  
farkin Mormons strike again! Idiots! There is no shame in the female anatomy.. well, except for fat chicks in party hats. Other than the Mormons that occupy it, Utah is acutally a very nice state.

2001-07-17 04:53:45 PM  
A Utahn is guilty of the class B misdemeanor if that person "exposes his or her genitals or private parts, masturbates, engages in trespassory voyeurism, or performs any other act in a public place or under circumstances [that] will likely cause affront or alarm to, on, or in the presence of another who is 14 years of age or older."

Does that mean it's legal if they are under 14??
2001-07-17 05:03:04 PM  
That's horrible. Don't you even care about women who are raped?

I'm sorry, -dear-, but not everything in this world revolves around men and their desires. We're human, too.

2001-07-17 05:03:09 PM  
you notice that if you pull out one letter from mormon you get moron? Maybe a hidden meaning in there...
2001-07-17 05:19:45 PM  
I think TOM CRUISE called the cops on her.....he's Gay you know......................
2001-07-17 05:36:26 PM  
Rei: I absolutely care about women being raped me being a woman and all. My point was if that "was" the law you can be certain that the scum would pay over and over again for as long as I was alive. Obviously I would have to take it upon myself to make up for the lack of punishment he recieved by other men.

everyone is missing the point: TOPLESS MAID SERVICE.
2001-07-17 05:55:11 PM  
and does every state have a bikini team?
2001-07-17 06:02:37 PM  
Did all of you miss the fact her name was Dee Dee? With a name like Dee Dee she had to be doing slutty and illegal things. I bet she used to be a stripper. Damn sluts. BTW I was just kidding. I like sluts.
2001-07-17 06:05:24 PM  
Mormons or morons?
2001-07-17 06:33:21 PM  

I take it you've never known a woman who's been raped before.

There's not even a joking comparison between that and being married to someone. ... sorry, I'm going to restrain myself from starting 3-page rant here....

We must end this boobie oppression therefore I am forming the BLA, the boobie liberation front. Our purpose is to free all the boobies of the world so that might bob and jiggle freely with out being confined in oppressive bras and halters. So go out and do your part and FREE THE BOOBIES!!!
2001-07-17 06:48:17 PM  
LOL, RandyJohnson...

Our last mayor (here in SLC) was named Dee Dee... and she was up to all kinds of sleazy things.

I think we should change it to "Mormons Surrender" instead of Utah surrenders since there are several of us here who are sane and ain't givin' up.
2001-07-17 06:57:17 PM  
but, rei, we love your three page rants. at least i do. and i'm not being sarcastic.

robbiefal: you know a lot of dudes named karen?
2001-07-17 06:59:06 PM  
RobbieFal: [To Rei] "Ack! I thought you were a guy!"

How ironic. Of all people, I would have thought you would have learned not to make assumptions about others.
2001-07-17 07:23:18 PM  
You could not tell that Rei was a girl Robbie?
2001-07-17 07:26:42 PM  
(concerning RobbieFal)
Judging from the shock at the 12% number at the last fark survey, I'd guess that most people on fark just assume people are male until they can figure out or are proven otherwise (unless, of course, they have a name like Mme.Mersault or something that makes it obvious :) ). Its playing the percentages.

Concerning my user name, Rei, it is my middle name (though, yes, I am also an anime fan, and yes, I do like evangelion :) ).

This is a relatively sensitive subject to me. I knew I'd get too into it, and then end up upset at work again. That's why I stopped myself.

2001-07-17 07:44:44 PM  
Rei: I dont believe you are female and neither does my wife. We request a boobie picture to prove that you are, in fact, a chick.
Ok, my wife is at work. *drool* smart person with boobies!
2001-07-17 08:00:36 PM  
It's not like you can see her cooter or anything.
2001-07-17 08:18:27 PM  
Well, I did bring some pictures to work to scan in tonite (from Elaine and my trip to Vermont for a civil union), though none are topless. What, am I supposed to ask Elaine to take a pic of me naked, so I can show it to some guys on the internet - then, take it to work and scan it in at the office? All so you can oggle at my A-cup? Yeah, that's going to happen ;)

A civil union having nothing to do with organised labour amongst engineers, I presume.

Oh - more to point?
Ms. Derian's about an A, I guess. And she's hot. Code_Archeologist - I'm with you on the BLA - in time to become a charter member? Shouldn't it be the BLF?
