Because obviously this is how directing works.
Puppet!Yulin with TinyPuppet!Lily and TinyPuppet!James. I don’t remember who decided this was going to be a thing, but alas, here we are.
AHHH THIS IS SO GREAT!
Bob Marshall, Asshole of the Day for April 12, 2014
You may recall the Virginia abortion bill that almost became law in 2012 before it became so toxic that Gov. Bob McDonnell asked that it be watered down or pulled. It was the one requiring women get transvaginal ultrasounds, and many people objected to the idea forcing a long wand into women that they didn’t want. Well, Delegate Bob Marshall was behind that bill.
But that’s not an outlier for his record or his way of thinking. He also thinks that Justice Kennedy is gay for voting for voting for gay rigths on the Supreme Court:
“For all I know, Kennedy’s a homosexual,” he said. “You can’t be doing some of these things without this kind of conclusion.”
He’s not, you may notice, suggesting that any of the other four justices who voted with Kennedy are gay also. I guess since the other four are Democrats, they are the pawns of Satan or something, but since Kennedy is a Republican, being secretly gay is the only possible answer.
And it should be pointed out, he takes nothing back. He’s not even saying he was misquoted or trying to explain it away. He stands by these comments.
He opposes abortion in all cases, even rape, incest and to save the life of the mother. Just think about that. Even in cases to save the life of the mother. But his comment about why he won’t allow it in cases of incest is what’s got people talking:
“What if incest is voluntary?” Mr. Marshall said. “Sometimes it is.”
Just look at how he phrases this— he doesn’t say incest is always voluntary, he only says “what if” and “sometimes it is”. But he still won’t allow abortion in the cases where it isn’t voluntary. That’s crystal clear.
And he stands by it and isn’t taking it back.
For guys like this what always gets me is how little they care about consent. Two adults of the same gender love each other and consent to sex and want to get married, but that doesn’t matter. He won’t let them. An adult forces themselves on a family member or a stranger against their consent and he thinks they should have to carry the baby they don’t want and didn’t consent to. Consent doesn’t matter to him, only the rules that prop up his patriarchy. Despicable.
So, for saying all these horrible things about women and gays, and even smearing a Supreme Court Justice, and taking none of it back, Bob Marshall is the Asshole of the Day.
It is Bob Marshall’s first time as Asshole of the Day. Though it should be pointed out that Pat Robertson was named Asshole of the Day last year for also claiming Justice Kennedy was either gay or had gay law clerks, otherwise why would he ever rule that gays had the same rights that Pat himself enjoys.
Imagine having braces during the apocalypse. no one can take your braces off. And you just have to accept that you’ll have braces forever.
i want a novel focused around a character with braces during the apocalypse and the entire plot of the story revolves around their search for an orthodontist who is still alive and they sort of accidentally save the world in the process
