Yeah, keep that up...

Hee hee. The name of the city is "Man-asses" and they're worried about perverts. Hee hee.
 
2010-09-28 06:29:57 PM  
How would they know what tempts perverts?

Eh, Manassas is just feeling tense because those pesky policias have been shutting down all the brothels and happy ending salons.

A neighboring town passed similar legislation AFTER they moved the kindergarten classes across the street from one. The sex shop had been there since the early 90s and, 10 years later, the township tried to pass retroactive legislation saying that no sex shops could operate within x number of miles within an arbitrary list of places. The owner spent a fortune in legal fees but was able to get grandfathered in.

/Waaaaay too many senior citizens in my area
//Happy the shop won out. It's run by 2 cool, geeky chicks.

OK, so...they get rid of the places you can get your willy wet INDOORS, then they get rid of the place you can go to get a wank vid for your DVD (at HOME). Next, they'll wonder why there's an epidemic of old dudes taming the snot otter across the street from the schoolyard.

People confuse me. If sex is so filthy, don't we want places that will keep it indoors and away from the eyes of children and Senate candidates?

Well, in all fairness, the Manassas town council (and its vote on this matter) starts here and only gets dumber.

maybe what they're doing is trying to keep senate candidates out

mind you, i think the way to do that is to start shackling them in the townsquare, then tarring and feathering them, not punishing the not so innocent

The sex store is owned by a large butch lesbian. You'd think the people of Manassas would have no problem with a business that was Bull-dyke Run.

Seriously. I can't believe people pay for sex toys either. I have been whittling my own dildos out of wood for years!

You want a Fleshlight, but only want to spend a little money? Go the the supermarket, buy a few pounds of ground beef, cut a hole in your mattress, warm up beef in microwave, stuff ground beef in mattress, and WHAM!

What, they don't have internet in Manassas?

"Out" being the operative word. I am thoroughly convinced that if we were able to see the minds of everyone in church on Sunday, we'd see that every damn last one of them is hiding behind such righteous indignation over something. Sex, drugs, alcohol, gambling... Something.

Sex being the cheapest to indulge.

These people given the Commonwealth a bad name, just like our butthead Attorney General does almost daily.

Where are all the perverts going now? Shouldn't they close those places down? You know, like bars and laundromats and churches?

So, when she sells them dildos, fleshlights and gimp outfits, does she ask them to do her a little favour? A little... trick on someone?
Does she also drive a Tucker Talisman?
If so they might just have a case.

On topic but does anyone in this thread work at a sex toy shop? How can you keep a straight face when describing the different toys?

Fundies are the most sexually screwed up perverts there are. They just complain about adult stores to try to divert some of the attention from themselves.

What really pisses me off is that somehow "strong family values" means shiatty, boring, repressed sex.

I have strong family values. I think families should respect and take care of one another. Marriage is a serious commitment. Children are a serious commitment. I don't care if your family is "traditional", gay, has children, doesn't have children, is polyamorous, etc. You are a family. That means something.

Why should family values be in opposition to sex? You are with someone you love. For the love of god, love them in every freaky and fun way possible. Toys, clothes, videos -- who cares?! Sex is fun. Sex with someone you love is a lot of fun. Go, have sex and enjoy it as fully as possible.

About 35K population in Manassas, so right at $2 per resident to fight the queers. Probably a value investment as far as they are concerned.

People confuse you, but you use the phrase "taming the snot otter"? If your penis is tool-using and devours clams, you might need a specialist.

They stop being "tee-hee" funny eventually. I like trade workers to be able to give actual reviews, not just blush and hide behind the counter. You know, like you would expect from a good liquor store, or video game store.

An attorney prohibiting SOB activities? How's he going to manage that one?

Oh...they mean "sexually oriented businesses." Still applies, however. You ever read a brief opposing a sexually oriented business?

Attendees argued that the shop's opening would .... promote the work of the Devil

As opposed to the work of the misogynistic, slavery condoning, petty and vengeful genocidal god they should be worshiping in Church every Sunday?

Ever since I was younger, I've always associated Manassas with the Lorena Bobbitt story. It's nice to see the city in the news for something other than a severed wang.

You know what really ticks me off about that, is that it's unconstitutional for the city government to deny devil-worshipers their rights to promote Satan. They might want to leave that part of their complaint out of it.

Bagels are sluts, what with their "come on, big boy" holes and all. That includes donuts. Hot dogs and all manner of weiners or frankfurters are devil-whores too. People should only have sex once - to make a babby, and they should not enjoy it. They should flog themselves immediately afterward to purge the shame.

I seem to recall the local radio station selling Slice soda and hotdogs on the courthouse steps during the Bobbitt trial. At least the local DJ's have/had a sense of humor.
