(children.  they last forever and cost a fortune, and no matter how hard you try to get rid of them with two flushes and a plunger, they just keep pulling their head back out of the toilet and eating all my damn food)

Pocket Ninja: I'm not sure I understand the spit thing. Are we talking about drinking spit equivalent to an entire classroom (lets call that 25 people) spitting once into a bucket? Or are we talking about somehow draining all the spit from each person in the classroom, collecting that into some sort of spit trough, and drinking that? That's two entirely different prospects, right there, and I'd need to know which one I'm considering (as well as what the 8 people I'd be having sex with look like). There's always tradeoffs; sometimes they're worth it and sometimes they're not.


Considering that this speech is being given to hormone-crazed teenagers, this audience might find either scenario an acceptable price to pay if it guaranteed sex with at least 8 people.

tinfoil-hat maggie: Koodz: From an apologist's comments in the Tennessean article:

The article combined two distinctly different comments into one when it states that sleeping with 8 partners is equivalent to drinking a whole classrooms spit. The presenter actually states that sleeping with 8 partners is the same as sleeping with 255, and later uses spitting in a cup as an example of sharing fluids and spreading diease.

Because that's MUCH more accurate.

Gods, I can't wait to get out of this town. The level of stupid is growing here every day and it shows no sign of stopping. Just the fact that the city schools can present a person who was a political serf for a republican politician, and another who has very little credentials about anything, as qualified to discuss sexual and reproductive health with students who, despite the pathetic disclaimers, were forced to listen to this drivel is enough to make someone so disillusioned with the human race as to make them the subject of a 'Criminal Minds' episode. One can only hope that sanity will one day be restored in most of the country, but in the South we never had it anyway, so why bother with hope?

NutWrench: Life began about a billion years ago and it's a continuous, ongoing process.


Well, the criteria for being a living organism inculde capacity for metabolism, growth, reaction to stimuli, and reproduction.

The capacity for reproduction doesn't occur until fairly late in fetal development.  While they're part of the larger ongoing process of capital-L life, an early fetus is not, itself, technically a living organism.

Yes, Mija, first and foremost this is an atheist, pro-choice, anti-gun, anti-patriotism (from a recent forum, apparently because that word is too Republican), anti-tobacco but pro-marijuana, and pro-expansion of government website only.  Also, it is important to remember that all Southerners are dumb and racist but no one else is and George Bush was the dumbest president ever and also the smartest (in an evil way) president ever for being able to fool all of Congress and a multitude of other nations into supporting actions in Iraq and Afghanistan.

No other viewpoints will be tolerated or debated because other viewpoints are inherently intolerant.

A skin cell, given the right conditions (say, a cloning lab), can become a fetus, and a child. But that does not mean every skin cell IS a child.

demarke: How often does an appendix sprout arms legs and a brain and pop out after nine months?

/That would be awesome if it were possible


It is possible. With a little help, of course, but it is possible. You remove the nucleus of an egg and take the deprogrammed egg (now lacking a nucleus and the nuclear DNA) and insert the nucleus from a cell removed from an appendix. The deprogrammed egg will take the appendix cell nucleus and reprogram it to repurpose the appendix cell nucleus into an egg cell nucleus. Give it a little shock and now it will start to divide.

This is how you create clones. This process is called a somatic cell nuclear transfer.

theorellior: Sticky Hands: True, but if it survives it will become one and then the other.

There's that if again, especially because 30% of fertilized eggs do not actually implant.



If I were to go out and smash the just fertilized eggs of some endangered owl and I attempted that same argument, my ass would end up in jail because of the potential I destroyed. Those eggs could have become the owl.

Is that different than an abortion? Slightly. The biggest differences between these situation are: 1) We already have plenty of humans. 2) We have seen that it's not a good idea to make someone be a mother who does not want to be a mother. Those situations tend to be horrible for the mother and the child and the rest of us end up paying for them in various ways.

And to mix this up a bit: If a someone attacks a pregnant woman with the intention of killing the unborn and that person is successful, what should they be charged with?  Simple assault? Something more? Only the most radical would claim that killing an fetus that the mother wanted isn't something worse than the exactly same attack on a non-pregnant woman or man.

 Lets face it. It's human. Or potentially human, which is fundamentally different than:

fredklein: A skin cell, given the right conditions (say, a cloning lab), can become a fetus, and a child. But that does not mean every skin cell IS a child.


or:

fusillade762: Correct. My appendix is human but nobody cries MURDER! if I have it removed.


Neither of those has the potential to become human on their own. But you can bet your ass that once we can clone humans, destroying one (clone) will carry the same penalties as destroying the original.

or:

 The Southern Dandy So will sperm. Is sperm a child?

If sperm could grow into children by itself the world would be a very different place.....


I'm not against Abortion. I think it should continue to at least as legal as it is now if not more so. It's not something I particularity like, and I wish it were not necessary. It would be wonderful if contraception never failed, if women never got raped, only became pregnant when they wanted to, never had health or financial or familial circumstances change drastically during pregnancy and never ended up having to choose between their life and the one they are carrying  But I live in an imperfect world, and the alternatives to legal abortion are worse.

For the record: I am also hugely against abstinence only sex ed.

It's probably already been mentioned, but by that logic (it can create a potential person) we should be farking like bunnies and cramming the planet to capacity with more humans. Every woman who refuses to have sex with me is preventing a new human from being created and should be treated as a murderer.

Profedius: It is not about what age you start having sex, it is about the nature of your sexual habits and those of your partners. I started have sexual contact at 11 and full intercourse by 12 I have never impregnated anyone and I have never had an STD, because I chose good partners and used birth control. I have turned down a lot more sexual encounters, because I wasn't comfortable with the partner's history leaving me with a total of 16 partners out of over 70 possible in my 40 years.


except of course for HPV, which condoms do not always prevent.  no matter how careful you are, you'd have to have lottery-winning odds to have never come into contact with or spread HPV.  without even knowing it even.

my point is, no matter how careful you are, shiat happens.  condoms and birth control are not 100% methods of protection.  although i commend you for trying to be safe, just realize not everyone with an STD or unplanned pregnancy was funneling gallons of infected semen in their twat.

I do remember Dolly, and some dogs and other animals, I seem to remember there were several issues (beyond just ethics) with making it work with primates.  The one lab to claim success on human cloning turned out to be a fraud (the Raellians or something)  and I admit to not following it much since.

I do remember Dolly, and some dogs and other animals, I seem to remember there were several issues (beyond just ethics) with making it work with primates.  The one lab to claim success on human cloning turned out to be a fraud (the Raellians or something)  and I admit to not following it much since.

This is Tetra. It is the first cloned primate (in 1999).

gweilo8888: OK, guys, we need to pick our battles here. If Republicans want to scare their kids into not having sex, that's a good thing. Less Republican brats having sex means less knocked-up Republicans. Less knocked-up Republicans means less baby Republicans. Less baby Republicans means fewer Republicans in the next generation. It's Darwin at work, and best of all, they clearly don't understand a word of it.

If we let them keep this up, I give it a few generations until Republicans are extinct as the Dodo, and just as culturally relevant.


Except they have sex anyway and don't use birth control. Which is why the red states are the ones on welfare.
