So I get up a freakin' hour early so that I can go walk before the boys get here and of course it starts raining.
Yes, I could walk in the rain.
No. I am not going to do that.
Well, the weekend is over and it's time to start EAHAS (eating all healthy and shit) and BASAS (being all sober and shit) and EAS (exercising and shit) and so I've had my smoothie and I guess I'll go do some crunches and so forth.
But before I do that, let's talk about the Captchas. The verification words. They've gotten ridiculous. I look at those things and I am aware that yes, they are probably letters used in the alphabet but I can't tell you what they are. They make me feel like a stroke victim. You?
Also, I'd like to say thank-you to everyone who comes here and reads and who braves the stupid verification words to leave a comment. I really feel like it's a community. I'll write something and I'll think of who is going to like what I said and who is going to know exactly what I'm talking about and if I have questions about sea creatures, Syd will answer them.
It is a comfort to me. It is a joy.
So did you read about the Republican senate candidate (Todd Akin) who claims that women rarely get pregnant as the result of rape because the female body just sort of shuts down the pregnancy process if the rape is "legitimate"?
Didn't some other asshole politician make this same claim a while back?
You know, as I get older I find myself being more tolerant of asshole behavior in some cases but less in others. This would fall under the less category. He claims that several doctors have confirmed this to be true.
Doctors of what?
So if a woman gets raped and finds herself pregnant, it wasn't a "legitimate" rape?
Of course this is all about his stance on abortion which, because of the whole legitimate rape thing is unnecessary, even in cases of rape because if the women gets pregnant, she wasn't really raped.
I don't even have the words to say how angry this makes me. He should be educated, he should be brought to account for such woman-hating words, he should hide his head in shame and go away and never be heard from again. If he has a wife, she should divorce him, if he has daughters, they should never talk to him again. If he has a mother who is still alive, he should apologize to her. Because he is stupid and evil and he will never have a uterus and he will never get pregnant through any means and I wouldn't wish rape on anyone, even a man like him.
Okay! Well, it's Monday morning. Wish me luck with the two boys.
I believe I'm going to remove the verification word thing from my comments. If it gets out of hand, I'll put it back on. I don't want to do the thing where I have to approve comments before they're posted because that just isn't how I want this to go although it doesn't bother me at all when other bloggers employ it.
And in other first-world problems, I'm out of bananas.
Woe is me.
