    I think we'll just call it "that Texas touch" for now.

    I think it's a combination of having painted themselves into a philosophical corner and slut shaming.

    If you oppose abortion because life begins at conception and believe people should have full rights at that time, you can really only make an exception for self-defense (life of the mother). It's not the baby's fault his or her dad was a dirty rotten rapist, after all. The victim may have to suffer, but it's for a good cause, so it's acceptable.

    Divide and conquer dehumanization seems to have been an effective strategy for gaining political power. If you make people feel like those 'other women' are bad and deserve what happens to them, you don't have to protect them. You don't have to help them. You don't have to feel like you could ever have something like that happen to you, because you aren't a bad person or a slut.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I'm pretty sure everyone already knew this.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I agree that with those premises, they don't really have the option to veer away from that if they wish to remain rationally consistent. The rape is an evil act; killing the child (which they consider it to be, and an innocent) would be an additional evil to them, so why complicate one evil by adding another one?

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    no. but, if she has a history of such comments, why would you expect anything new?

    Second, I didn't necessarily take her seriously.

    Third, considering what I have seen of her, it did seem at least plausible.

    Fourth, if that is a plausible position for you, you're not someone who should be joking about it.
    either way, i dont take stupidity seriously. it seems like an exercise in futility.

    especially when it seems like the community has already responded accordingly to her behavior.
    Oh, its
    You

    Hate me for all that I am. Do it. Because I don't want y'all to love me for something I am not. What I am not is free of human nature, which includes prejudices. I'm not proud of my human nature. I praise God for his love that sets me free from the horrible person I really am.

    And the shows over, folks. It's all been done before. Yawns. Go home.
