Is "tough love" ever not a euphemism for "I'm an asshole who shouldn't be allowed near children"?

On Craigslist it's called a "re-homing fee."

Hey, they got free tacos, didn't they?

Brats are delicious. I'd pay the holding fee.

Yes, frequently.

So they should watch the children for free?

Nope. It's merely one of many ways sadists justify or excuse their cruelty by trying to tie it to something more positive, much like how forced-birthers have started trying to pass off their misogyny as "protecting womens' health", or US racists their immigrant bashing and support for blatant discrimination in our law-enforcement/justice system as "thinking of the children". It's all just shiat heads trying to get the rest of us to agree they aren't shiat heads through sleazy, manipulative rhetoric.

Yogimus: So they should watch the children for free?


The phrase "youth shelter" is an awkward translation.
This is more like your local animal shelter, except for human children.
It's a combination orphanage, foster home, pediatric mental hospital, and reform school, for the very poor.
I think these things disappeared from the developed world about a century ago.
So, yeah, she should watch them for free. That's kind of the idea.
 
2014-07-25 07:25:20 AM
Yes, you raising your children to not respect authority and act out physically when upset is obviously racism.

I don't know.  I think there's a lot more wrong with this picture than her asking parents to pay to get their kids back.  It looks like the place is in dire condition, perhaps this was her way of getting at least a little funding.

However, it's pretty clear she's not fit to take care of kids, whether it's due to senility or prickishness.

So white kids are like golden retriever puppies and Mexican kids are the 8 year old pitbulls?

/Around Petersburg, VA, 90% of shelter dogs are pits.

Does she have custody of the kids? If not, use whatever force you need to get your kids back.

Then again if these are black kids and an old white woman I guess the jury won't agree.

Yeah. They might grow up and do things like post in the wrong thread.

Sure. Mexican juries in Mexico are like that.

Wow, kidnapping for ransom sure has become a full time industry down there.  Sure won't be seeing me near that country.
 
2014-07-25 09:13:45 AM
How much for the little girl? How much for the women? Sell me your children!
 
2014-07-25 09:31:26 AM
... She's never read 'The Ransom of Red Chief', has she?

/after spending all day with the little yard apes, I'm amazed she isn't eager to get them back to their parents.
//not really that... curmudgeonly?  curmudgeon-ish?  OK, grumpy.

600? Six farking hundred children and adults! With bonus pigs as well.

That should make for one hell of an episode of Hoarders.

Upset about racism? The article did not specify whether she was
Asian or African-American.
/What torques me off, is a lot of Hispanics call  themselves a "Race."
//They're not.
//If they were, the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause would be races too.
///Books, learn to read and comprehend. A mob doesn't make a "Race."

Yeeeah, because hispanics are never victims or racism.

I don't have time for all your article-reading shenanigans. I have comments to post.

No, no, no.  I'm paying you to keep them.

Ya know how I know that you never got an animal from a shelter?

Conditions at the place were deplorable. Charging parents is not.

00:48:11 I'd find lost dogs and call the owners. People paid big ransom.

00:48:14 - Ransom! My God... - '"Ransom'" is a bad choice of words.

00:48:18 That's the word they used in court, but I'm still fighting it.

00:48:21 Good for you.

Absolutely. Our neighbor's 3 yr old granddaughter is in the middle of potty training. Apparently she doesn't like to stop playing her iPad to go to the bathroom and goes in her pull-up. So, if she's dry all day (they're not counting nights yet) she gets her iPad the next day. She pees in the pull- up, no iPad for the rest of the day or the next day.

Technically that's tough love.
