Oh no, a lady had sexual intercourse. Whatever shall we do?
I'm going to reprise a comment I made on the previous dingus of the week column: WHERE ARE MY PEARLS, I NEED TO CLUTCH THEM
One: "Binders of women", in case you forget who you're agreeing with.
Two: Our senior beagle ate a stick of butter and barfed it up on the deck. For a couple of years, even after she crossed the rainbow bridge, the water would bead up when it rained.
I, for one, am proud to be a women who fucks. Thank goodness I've never even wanted to run for school board, much less higher office. HowEVER, I have maintained for years that we'd be better off as a nation if we had a Black, lesbian, trans, pagan dominatrix who has been on both food stamps and welfare as our president. Wherever you are, you paragon of transgressive virtues, please run.
I've defended Mitt Romney at least twice this week, and it feels just as awkward as when I did the same for Liz Cheney. This is one weird timeline.
Some people I was chatting with said that her choice to go on Chaturbate with her husband indicated "poor judgment," sort of implying that was why it was ok for us to have this information.
And to that I say: no. What people do with consenting partners is always and forever none of my business. Even if they do it on a website. Pols are humans who do human things just like everyone else. I want the people I vote for to have good policies. That's it.
This was fun, thanks. Agree with everything, but I don’t have as much compassion about one matter as perhaps I should. That’s about cleaning your wolf’s mess. When my dog eats what he shouldn’t, he eventually delivers the consequences on the bed. Where I sleep. Where, yes, a human (not dog) thing called sex has happened. I’d rather power wash a porch than have to clean a whole damn duvet and quilt.
Since I started reading her in college, I've often noted that Margaret Atwood's fiction was more like journalism. Now, um, we can't Make Gilead Great Again fast enough?
You're burning it up when you're burning it down, Lyz. More of us need to use the grace and power of a comic touch -- on purpose, that is. Too many of our societal characters are unintentionally hilarious (though not very funny). Anyhow, all the more reason to stay hydrated. Those porches won't power-wash themselves. Down the hatch!
This is so good. Such perfect Friday content. The number of ways we try to minimize women is unlimited.
Only thing good about ridiculously stupid weeks like this: The Dingus rant! Whew, thanks, I needed that!
"That’s right, breaking news, folks, a woman fucked."
Best breaking news headline EVAR 👏 above or below the fold.
Sorry, I'm officially deceased for getting a shout out for my silly little project.
Did you know it was the AFA(Association of Flight Attendants), iow mainly women, who came up with the stand-up strike strategy the UAW is using? They called it CHAOS(Creating Havoc Around Our System). David Dayen has a short thread about it. https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1702699461221453865.html
women are out their having sex bc we stopped teaching children that sex is between 2 men who love each other. have to start with the forced gay marriages.
My dog ate almost a whole brick of brown cheese -- all that she left was 1/4 inch on the bottom with teeth marks (and that's only because she was caught in the act). Thanking my lucky stars no diarrhea was involved.
Also, our dog ate a stick of butter years ago and instead of diarrhea he puked it all up on the carpet and then chewed a hole in the carpet where he puked because we failed to scrub out all the butter. I have to say I am finding comfort in everyone else's dog eating butter stories.
The two podcast good things are truly good! I am excited for Gabs' podcast and I really enjoyed listening to the episode of Othered that you were on. The hosts seem like exactly the most fun people to hang out with. I am starting to think that Cedar Rapids is unfairly* stacked with wonderful humans.
*unfair to me, anyway!
