Sleeping Beauties: Unconsciousness Is NOT CONSENT
A Vaccine Debate Once Focused on Sex Shifts as Boys Join the Target Market

Because male sexual health must be protected, while “women’s health” gets scare/air quotes from those in the highest echelons of power. Because it’s far more important to punish the sluts. SO much so that there were local political MOVEMENTS to ban the vaccine. Your behavior, ladies, is more important than your life. And we’re soooooo much better than those *ahem* dark-skinned folks who do all that honor killing, right? It’s a matter of degree and nothing else, and I am breathless with the hypocrisy.

I’ll be reasonable later.

Wouldn’t it be nice if this were an April Fool?
Aw man.

This made me wibble a bit.

Free Bristol Palin

I think Maureen Johnson might actually... rock

Which means I'm going to have to finish that damned BOOK. *grumble*



EDIT: She does engage in a bit of speculation, but it's pretty clearly speculation, I think, and definitely worth consideration.

Year after year and age after age, the song never fucking changes.

Boys, 8 and 9, charged with rape

The father of the 8-year-old boy said his son had been falsely accused and had not had sex with the girl.

The sexual activity was consensual, and the girl accused her playmates only after her parents had learned she had sex, said the father, Brandon LeBlanc.

"There was no violence involved," LeBlanc said. "This is a clear case of a girl who didn't want to get in trouble with her parents."

He added, "In order to save her hide, she tried to blame it on rape."

She's ELEVEN, you gross pitiful soul-free excuse for a human being.

And no they should not bloody well be tried as freaking adults. They are ALL BABIES. (I don't know that they should be allowed to remain with this father individual teaching them their values and outlook though. Maybe we could try HIM.)
So I've been reading this book for the past four hours straight and making myself cry, which... is not real conducive to writing a damn thing. Oy. Need sleep.

Good book, but I seriously want to live in a convent cell now and avoid all contact with my fellow human beings.

This:

"In America, Seduction Is Dishonest"
http://www.salon.com/books/int/2006/05/20/rapaille/print.html

...is a pretty cool article, about the differences between French, Americans, and others. The amazing thing is that it does not piss me off in any way. He's not out to belittle anybody. ^_^ It's fascinating. With much truth. There's an ad you might have to watch to read it, but I reccommend.

He may not be right, exactly -- he can get a little cliche... -- but it's food for thought. (The responses on the other hand -- meh.)

Will probably come back to embellish this post later...
*sigh*

What Happens When Your Country Isn't Weird About Sex?

Lower rates than ours of pregnancy, childbirth, abortion and sexually transmitted diseases among teens.

The longer I live my life, the more I become convinced that my path needs to lead me elsewhere. (But where?)
