This needs to go green.

I'm not sure that would be a good idea. Between him masturbating, laughing at the woman, and telling her it was God's Will because she's a whore, it might be a bit traumatic.

Sure, in a normal person's mind, this would have a huge impact. Richard Mourdock is not a normal person, though.

Agreed. It probably won't though. The smart and funny voting buttons are already active in the comments. The greenlit links don't have those until they go live on the main pages.

He would probably just assume that she's bitter because God didn't find her worthy of being blessed with the gift of a rape baby.

I imagine it's something like..

You're gonna get raped and you're gonna like it or you're also gonna get murdered.

Seems like a legitimate article. I guess this is really becoming a thing now.
 
2012-11-01 03:24:48 PM
While this is good PR, does anyone really believe this has a realistic chance of making anyone change their mind? No, of course not.

While the thought rings true, this is as much a circle jerk as Scalzi's satire piece was and is.

It seems to me that any woman that votes for these Republicans--and that definitely includes the Romney/Ryan ticket--is a goddamned retard at best, and a traitor to her sex and humanity as a whole at worst.

You're on national TV, and you're...oh, look, that's gross...that's not how you do that, you're doing it too slow, just stop, it's really fast and then you just stop...you just do it fast and stop, that's it....and stop making eye contact, that's creepy too...oh COME ON YOU NEVER MAKE THEM TOUCH, DUDE THAT'S NOT COOL."

Really? You really think this? You are not just being a troll?
The idea is that the way we change society is by becoming aware of problems and then fixing them.
Rape in this country needs fixing and the GOP is pro-rape.
That is a Problem.

But you think talking about it is a big circle jerk? Really?

I think talking about it in this fashion, preaching to the choir, accomplishes nothing other than a circle jerk amongst those who already agree, yes.

That presumes that Fark is supposed to accomplish something, which is a statement that is fundamentally at odds with reality.

"Dude what are you? Don't finish! You never finish! That's disgusting!"

That skit would have been perfect if they had just cut out the last part where the dude was screaming "Boss!" when he was going down the hall. I also liked the "pardon me, but I do believe you are peeing upon my leg" skit, but it had a non-funny ending as well. These guys would be great if they could learn when to end the joke.

FTA: If you really are pro-life, spend your time, energy, and speech stopping rape and protecting the women and girls who are already on this earth. Then there will be no pregnancies from rape to argue about. And then this subject will not have to brutalize the women of this country any more.

This.

This.


But victimizing the victim even further is so much easier. I can just point and say, "Your fault." and continue feeling superior because I've been lucky enough to never have faced the violent tragedy of rape.

TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: That presumes that Fark is supposed to accomplish something, which is a statement that is fundamentally at odds with reality.


Except that you are completely wrong.
Things that I get out of fark on a regular basis:
entertainment - daily
education - new science discoveries and what not - daily to weekly
information on current topics - event driven, but perfect first stop (tsunami and sandy were great examples)
discourse and debate on heated topics - daily
learn that I was wrong about something which I thought I knew - daily to weekly
boobies - on demand

so the idea that fark does nothing is so silly

do you REALLY think that preaching to the choir does nothing? How else do you rile the masses up??
Look at what happened with the SGK and PP bullshiat. That preaching got me to pull all of my charity to cancer and moved it into PP. And that was multiplied across the country by the millions.

About Mourdock, the GOP or Romney?

Definitely worth a shot.

He would likely tell the woman something about God not giving people more then they could handle, or about God working in mysterious ways, or that God was blessing her with a baby. And then the hospital staff would also have to fix Mourdock's broken nose and treat that poor woman's injured hand.

Treasurer Mourdoc (R-IN) does not care. I'm not sure when people are going to get that inside their heads. His religious faith will shelter him from your pleas for empathy and logic.

I'm truly getting sick of this shiat, and it's only gotten worse over the last decade. I'm a Millennial and since my teen years I've seen nothing but religious fundamentalists wrap themselves with the American flag and run rough-shod of the rest of us. I constantly see vehicles with bumper stickers that say "Liberals deserve to die" or stickers with dead baby fetuses on them. It's farking sick of it. I'm tired of being told that I'm wrong for wanting to expand education, give healthcare to those without it, make government work correctly and effectively, to stay out of people's private lives or help our fellow Americans get through a rough time.


These people can go fark themselves:
