I think I would like to look at this outrage for myself! (just so I can be outraged of course)

I'm OK with this.

would like to know how many anti-abortion demonstrators have adopted two or three children and how many should just STFU.

Images of bodies in a non-sexual context is pornographic? Okay. Got it. You're a prude. I see. I bet you have sex in the dark. I'm medicated, though, after a surgery, so I'm blathering. Back to sleep.

umm by definition, sexual organs are a sexual context.  I'D masturbate to them.


Anything depicting people's sex organs is pornographic, therefore obscene? Paintings of nude people are pornographic? Any photo of a nude person is pornographic? So, if you're at the doctor's office and you're nude, that's sexual? This is one of the issues we have in this country, we've completely sexualized everything associated with the naked human body, thus all the hangups about breastfeeding and covering up of statues in Washington. That's non-sexual nudity.

Thanks, BF!  I didn't see a single vagina there, although I could make out about 10 fairly unattractive pudenda and/or vulvae.

I also disagree with the prevailing opinion here that Sarah is a porker.  She's tall and kinda cute.  Her lady parts however leave something to be desired.  I'd still hit it, though!

A doctor near me often has a bunch of antiabortion protesters outside his office. One year, they had lined the street with huge posters of mangled fetuses. It was disgusting. I called the cops and complained. They said people had the right to protest. What about my right to not lose my breakfast on my way to work? I told the cop if I were out there with posters of breasts or penises to raise cancer awareness I'd be arrested. But pictures of bloody corpses is ok. I think enough people complained. The protesters are still there but their signs are text only.

I don't think that's analogous. Showing the results of war (or abortion or meth use or whatever) can be much more impactful than just talking about it.

why not? I was really just busting her balls but now I'm curious. Why wouldn't they be protected speech.  You can talk about the casualties of war but if you show them, that's over the line?

You can't yell "FIRE!" in a theater, neither.  Reasonableness, context and intent (all subjective) are important.

Oh, the things you must tell yourself in order to better sleep at night.


I don;t follow. I was snarking at her but now I am interested in why you'd think such a thing shouldn't be protected political speech. There's nothing else afoot.

Random question here: If these women are so proud of their vaginas and claim to draw so much personal strength from this aspect of their womanhood, then why do so many of them feel the need to shave or use Brazilian waxes? This phenomenon of a hairless vagina as a standard of beauty if both the result of peer pressure and the practices of the porno industry, and ultimately results in unhealthy body image given the fact that a woman must remove a naturally-occurring part of her body in order to seem normal. Furthermore, the absence of pubic hair as a standard of beauty seeks to diminish the idea of an adult woman as sexually liberated and independent by determining that she must appear as a prepubescent girl in order to be "sexually acceptable" for men. This social pressure has the psychological repercussion of creating a sort of "woman-child" standard of beauty, thus implicitly diminishing the perception of a woman's intellectual capabilities and has wide implications on the state of gender equality.

Your sentences contradict each other. You most certainly can yell fire in a theater. If it's empty, if you're on stage and it's part of the scene, if there's actually a fire, or if you provide adequate warning that it is a demonstration of free speech and does not represent an actual instance of a fire. You know, the reasonableness, context, and intent matter, so don't make blanket statements about what you can or can't yell.

I don't deny this. On the contrary, my entire point is that the mother is the one who's aware of what's going on, who is experiencing this. A miscarriage is a hard loss. An abortion can be even harder, either by being forced upon a woman due to medical issues or chosen because other costs to her life or her family's life would be too high. Miscarriage can be accepted as fate, but abortion carries responsibility, and that makes it one of the most difficult decisions one can face. Other people's compassion should be with the woman and people supporting her, because she is the one going through this. To hope waving a gory photo at strangers will encourage people to want to take away her choice, to deny her compassion, because an aborted fetus looks horrible, is a demented, thoughtless thing to do.

I think we're probably pretty much in agreement.  Although you've a more compassionate view of human nature than I have:)  Not all women undergoing abortions are conflicted & suffering.  I don't think gory pictures are ever appropriate - it's merely being offensive for the sake of being offensive.  As for this bunch empowering women through their vaginas, that theory is backed by equally barmy thinking; although the photos themselves are harmless.

You're delegitimating people's own experiences with their own bodies and the political impulses involved. The pictures, far from being "harmless" are quite obviously powerful--they challenge the shame and secrecy about female reproductive systems that helps enable politicians to get away with invasive laws on people's bodies. If they didn't there wouldn't have been a controversy in the first place and you wouldn't be reading about it on Fark.. So no, we are NOT in agreement, cupcake.

I am a huge fan of the vagina.  It's how we almost all got here, from deposit to delivery.  I do not, however, seem to be able to invest much credence in the notion that "But, vuh GYE nuh!" is inherently some sort of political statement, fraught with gravitas.  The notion that women should be able to do with their own bodies as they please is neither new, shocking, nor merits much argument.  The notion that the endless stream of attention seeking diatribe and tempest in a teapot drama that flows forth from this simple fact is somehow required reading is, well, malarkey.

Fwiw, gory pictures of anything are in excessively poor taste - it's not hard to work out what a battlefield injury looks [& smells] like; the same goes for the aftermath of medical procedures.

/I'm pro-choice but I'm also a realist; a bundle of medical waste to one person, is the loss of a child to another.

I don't deny this. On the contrary, my entire point is that the mother is the one who's aware of what's going on, who is experiencing this. A miscarriage is a hard loss. An abortion can be even harder, either by being forced upon a woman due to medical issues or chosen because other costs to her life or her family's life would be too high. Miscarriage can be accepted as fate, but abortion carries responsibility, and that makes it one of the most difficult decisions one can face. Other people's compassion should be with the woman and people supporting her, because she is the one going through this. To hope waving a gory photo at strangers will encourage people to wa ...


The quote thingy didn't to it's thingy first time, and I don't know how to edit a post.

I think we're probably pretty much in agreement.  Although you've a more compassionate view of human nature than I have:)  Not all women undergoing abortions are conflicted & suffering.  I don't think gory pictures are ever appropriate - it's merely being offensive for the sake of being offensive.  As for this bunch empowering women through their vaginas, that theory is backed by equally barmy thinking; although the photos themselves are harmless.

You're delegitimating people's own experiences with their own bodies and the political impulses involved. The pictures, far from being "harmless" are quite obviously powerful--they challenge the shame and secrecy about female reproductive systems that helps enable politicians to get away with invasive laws on people's bodies. If they didn't there wouldn't have been a controversy in the first place and you wouldn't be reading about it on Fark.. So no, we are NOT in agreement, cupcake.


Sorry Pixie - seeing as we're exchanging pet names - I wasn't replying to you.  I mucked up my post in an on-going dialogue I was having with someone else.  As to your experiences with your vagina, have at it, please don't insist I view mine in the same way though.

Fortunately, your mere opinion is irrelevant. Since elected officials can and are today banned from speaking in their legislatures if they even say the word "vagina", we have incontrovertible proof that in fact saying the word (much less displaying the picture) is an inherently political statement, fraught with precisely enough gravitas to cause said censorship. If it wasn't, elected officials wouldn't be banned from speaking about in during legislative debates. If it doesn't have power, it couldn't make people angry and afraid, by definition.

The folks at Kimberly Clark who made these huge gauze pad bandages for WW I soldiers who were badly hurt and had large wounds, so as to soak up the massive bleeding and allow clotting before hemorrhaging out, found a great use for them after the war as disposable feminine napkins.  Nice bit of work, that.  I wish so many useful products didn't emerge from wholesale genocide.

So in the land of milk and honey..and birth control pills...why does abortion even exist? Most stats show the increased use of birth control causes an increase in abortion. Why? Simple. The failure rate of the pill is higher thn stated. When it fails, it usually fails on a woman who was not wanting to have a child. Therefore, we have abortion. It's a pretty anti woman cycle there. Sounds like this birth control with abortion backup plan was invented by horny frat boys.

I'm not shocked by reality; might wish reality was different, it doesn't shock me though.  Or did you mean people in general? [not being snarky, btw]   You're right about doses of reality.  But it does get into tricky territory; because the threshold for what each person finds offensive or disturbing is so varied, it's very difficult to draw the line.

Hal5423: Random question here: If these women are so proud of their vaginas and claim to draw so much personal strength from this aspect of their womanhood, then why do so many of them feel the need to shave or use Brazilian waxes? This phenomenon of a hairless vagina as a standard of beauty if both the result of peer pressure and the practices of the porno industry, and ultimately results in unhealthy body image given the fact that a woman must remove a naturally-occurring part of her body in order to seem normal. Furthermore, the absence of pubic hair as a standard of beauty seeks to diminish the idea of an adult woman as sexually liberated and independent by determining that she must appear as a prepubescent girl in order to be "sexually acceptable" for men. This social pressure has the psychological repercussion of creating a sort of "woman-child" standard of beauty, thus implicitly diminishing the perception of a woman's intellectual capabilities and has wide implications on the state of gender equality.


Because it is hot, hot, hot.  Who doesn't like to please their mate?  Easier to keep clean.  Easier access for me to give her oral pleasure.  And everything is slippery no matter what angle you are entering from.  Allows for lots of new, pleasurable positions for both parties.  And last, it's hot.

This.  Child support is not a property right that the custodial parent has.  It's an obligation that BOTH parents have to the child and society.  Giving up your parental rights does not void your debt to the child or society.  A custodial parent who refuses to pursue child support is as reprehensible as one who refuses to pursue medical care for a child.
