Generation fap

I really have to thank Marci McDonald for the timing of her book’s release  early last week and all the media buzz that accompanied it — for once the MSM had good reason to shine a light on Fetustock, since it underscored (with a bright red Sharpie) the book’s premise: religious fascists want to run your personal life.  The fetus fetishists’ failure to make that obvious connection and their subsequent ecstasy at the unprecedented attention they got last week is something that promises to provide snark material for some time…

For example: over at the Home of Principled Conservatism the weather report is calling for increased pressure, a relative humidity of 110% and a fapstorm of biblical proportions as the deranged “Paycheck” furiously strokes himself into a frenzy over Canada’s Imminent New Culture of Fetus Fetishizing, which he predicts will start in… Quebec!? No, really.  Now get that raincoat on, because you won’t want to be hit with any overspray, and click on the pic!:

With the other hand, he dug up one of those super-reliable internet polls, and whoops!  Fapfapfapfapfapfapfapfap:

Oh my goodness.  Oh my goodness gracious.  Well, enough of that bullshit.  While the freepsters were freeping, the pollsters were polling, and here is what they got:  two polls that both show a hefty majority of Canadians think that Harper’s Maternal Health Initiative should include abortion care.   It’s safe to say that those numbers reflect Canada’s attitude about domestic policy as well.   And what of Quebec?

In Quebec, 71% agree Canadian aid should be spent to provide access to abortions

Face it, foetishists — you were handed your asses on a plate when Dr. Morgentaler was handed the Order of Canada (hard to believe it’s been almost two years, eh?  And how’s that “blizzard of returned medals-y” thing working out for you?).  Maybe you could commission Marci McDonald to write annual sequels and release them the same week as FetusFest.

    “My bet is that Quebeckers will choose culture over free sex”

    BWAAAAAAhahahahahaha! Dude has obviously never been to Montreal.

    Only in the remote rural villages would culture beat out free sex, and only with the viagra generation.

    Everything Paycheck knows about Québec would fit on a postage stamp – except for the “intelligence” that SUZY ALLCAPSLOCK feeds him.

    Culture vs “free” sex? What idjits.

  4. 4 Shade Monday, May 17, 2010 at 9:00 pm

    The only time sex isn’t free is prostitution. So what he’s in favour of that?

    Don’t mind me I’m being silly.

    Seriously though, he’s trying to say you can’t have culture and women having control over their own bodies? How could I have been so blind, it’s not like cultural things involve freedom of expression or anything silly like that.

    If there’s a choice to be made between “culture” and “free sex,” Quebecers made it almost half a century ago.

    And I’ll point out that it’s the Viagra generation that made that choice. It’s the 50s and up who decided they weren’t going to have huge families.

    I’m starting to think about the adoption of the Charter of Rights. When the notwithstanding clause was introduced there was an outcry from women across the country, leading to the notwithstanding notwithstanding clause that stresses all rights apply equally to men and women. I found it interesting than and now that politicians felt it was safe to say they might potentially override the rights of other minorities, but not women’s rights.

    I think the rumblings on this will lead to one of two things – a defeat of the Reformatories or a re-affirmation of women’s reproductive rights from them that will leave their supporters reeling.

    :lol: A stroll down Rue Sainte Catharine would disabuse him of these silly notions, tout suite :shock:

    Yeah, they do tend to be more conservative in the outlying areas, but even so, how many CPC MPs did Quebec send to Ottawa? 10? And if pro-choice Josee Verner is any indication, conservatives from Quebec are a little different than those from the ROC.

    deBeauxOs – I’ve always wondered what exactly is meant by that expression “free sex” — “free” sex as opposed to what? Half price sex? Two for one sex?

    It speaks volumes about his attitude toward sex that he thinks it’s something that has to be “paid for” somehow. It reminds me of the olden days when women used to hold out for a new Maytag or something :lol:

    Don’t let the friendly-sounding language fool you. When they start jabbering about “culture” and “the family” it’s code for “anti-gay”. That they see women as babymaking machines goes without saying.

    Indeedy. If you’re talking about a law, I’ve often said that anti-choicers should be careful what they wish for.

    After 22 years, any kind of law, no matter how ineffectual, would be such a radical change that you can bet all it would do is codify the status quo. (In fact, the CMA would see to that.)

    I’ve always been against a law of any kind mainly because I’m against legislating any personal decisions — if people want to have abortions, or do drugs, or patronize sex trade workers, it is their business, not the government’s. But reproductive freedom is so constantly under attack that I have to concede that a well-crafted law might have protective benefits.

    I’d way rather abortion was treated like any other medical procedure and left up to the patient and her doctor without state intervention, but that doesn’t seem to be in the cards since there are so many nosy parkers who want it banned.

  12. 12 Reality.Bites Wednesday, May 19, 2010 at 2:47 am

    That’s the thing. We don’t legislate on medical procedures and if we do, we don’t do it through the criminal code.

    Despite the insistence that “it’s legal to have an abortion right up to the point of delivery” no doctor is going to perform a late-term abortion without there being circumstances that would completely justify it among sane people. No one is performing late term abortions of healthy fetuses on healthy women.

    RB:

    Exactly correct, and something the pro-birthers never fail to recognize nor concede. Instead they come up with all kinds of false equivalencies and extreme imaginary scenarios and cast them as happening all the time. Dishonesty in discourse and debate is a hallmark of their debate on the issue in my observation.

  14. 14 JJ Wednesday, May 19, 2010 at 10:20 am

    RB

    No one is performing late term abortions of healthy fetuses on healthy women.

    Exactly. Even Dr. Morgentaler’s limit was 24 weeks.

    Anti-choicers have done a good job spreading the “all 9 months” meme. People are so brainwashed into believing that there has to be a law for everything, they flip out and go batshit and demand that the government get involved.

    It doesn’t occur to them that doctors police themselves because (a) the CMA has its own guidelines for this stuff, and doctors break them at their peril, and (b) who carries a pregnancy for 8 months and then changes her mind?

    The thought that people could actually think for themselves without a law telling them what to do and what not to do is anathema to these idiots.

  15. 15 JJ Wednesday, May 19, 2010 at 10:24 am

    Scotian – It’s all part & parcel with the images they use, that feature very late term fetuses and still births. In reality, over 99% of abortions are not late term, and are done when the fetus is completely non-sentient. (90% are done when it looks more like a shrimp than anything human.)

  16. 16 Brian Wednesday, May 19, 2010 at 11:28 am

    The thought that people could actually think for themselves without a law telling them what to do & what not to do is anathema to these idiots.

    Well, most people know not to steal, yet we have laws against that. Of course the reason is that there are some who either don’t know that, or who choose to ignore what they know to be right. That is the case with most of the laws.

    In this specific realm, evidence indicates that some people will seek, and some will perform abortions right up to the delivery date.

    There was a bill in Chicago that mandated that if a baby who was the result of an attempted fatal abortion came out alive instead (with the cord having been cut), care had to be provided. There were cases where live, viable babies had been allowed to freeze to death. Obama (and others) voted against that!

    Apparently either some do not know right from wrong, some do not care or both. So those of us who do know right from wrong pass laws to compel people to do right in one specific area or another.

     

    … who carries a pregnancy for 8 months and then changes her mind?

    Perhaps a woman who gets a divorce, or whose boyfriend who had promised commitment leaves, or who gets a job opportunity she has been waiting for, or who has a bad experience with a friends kids and finally decides “that ain’t for me!”, or who loses all her stuff in a house fire, or who is a procrastinator, or …

    I guess if it never happens, a law against it would not be too onerous, yeah?

     

    … over 99% of abortions … are done when the fetus is completely non-sentient.

    How could these 2 terms ever be reconciled: “a part of the woman’s body” and “independently sentient?”

     

    … 90% are done when it looks more like a shrimp than anything human …

    That would have to be (in my opinion, of course), “looks more like a shrimp than like a human that has aged more.” At one point in my life, I looked like a small ball. At a different part of my life I looked like (as you say) a shrimp. After I was born I had a very small chin, and most often lay with my legs spread wide apart at the knees. Later, my joints developed such that my legs most often point knees forward. A determination of humanity-or-not is not well founded merely on appearance, such as “She doesn’t look like one of us, so she is not one of us” (again, in my opinion).

    I meant “…a bill in Illinois…”

  18. 18 Reality.Bites Thursday, May 20, 2010 at 2:36 am

    In a province where progressive social policies tend to elicit broader public support than elsewhere in the country, Quebec’s National Assembly unanimously adopted a motion affirming a woman’s right to choose and to access free abortion services.
