Blatant Stupidity

Boys Will Be Boys

My mind just exploded.

I knew I was in for a treat when I clicked on an article from Newsweek titled “Boys Will Be Boys”. I immediately thought “what excuses will be made for men this week?”. Sure enough it took all of three sentences to get this gem:

“IT WAS A CLASSIC MARS-VENUS encounter.  Only in this case, the woman was from Harvard and the man--well, boy--was a 4-year-old at a suburban Boston nursery school.  Graduate student Judy Chu was in his classroom last fall to gather observations for her doctoral dissertation on human development. His greeting was startling: he held up his finger as if it were a gun and pretended to shoot her. ""I felt bad,'' Chu recalls. ""I felt as if he didn't like me.''  Months later and much more boy-savvy, Chu has a different interpretation: the gunplay wasn't hostile--it was just a way for him to say hello.”

A four year old boy is simulating violence with a gun and the grad student thinks he doesn’t like her and then explains it away by saying “well , it’s how he says hello”………………………………………

Just to let you know

Fifty million bones, from your wallet, were allocated today for abstinence only education.

I guess it's just sort of stupid to point out the fucking obvious.

"just say no" doesn't work.

Numerous studies reveal that the cases of STD/STI infection, HIV/AIDS, and unplanned pregnancies, all rise when the majority of sexual education is "abstinence only".

Silvio FTL (... again)

His public life has become more dramatic than a soap opera. I have written about him before. About his wife, her public displays of disdain and their highly public disputes. I have written of the irony in their relationship and how he represents his country-people.

Everytime I read of Silvio Berlusconi I am utterly disgusted.

As a man in power, he represents every negative stereotype people such as myself fight diligently against, He only hires women, unqualified at that, if they are beautiful. He invites young women, his own daughter's age, to his home to entertain him and his friends. Women are bought and sold in his own home, parties he hosts. In a shameless display of hubris, and with supreme hypocrisy, he runs an extremely conservative agenda. He is BFF's with the Vatican(way to go Pope). In every way, he reveals himself to be a misogynistic pig, with seemingly no conscience. A sociopath.

The Prime Minister of Italy.

The prime minister was in an apparently upbeat mood today, telling the press conference that he enjoyed "the admiration of 68% per cent of Italians" – though he did not cite a source. The previous evening he again joked about his reputation at a meeting of young members of his party. When a female follower got up to ask a question, he interrupted her, saying: "I'm letting off the boys, but the girls are having to give their phone numbers."

In September, for the sake of all Italians, may the opposition win at last.
