Now let this be a lesson to anyone who’s bothered by an influx of shrieking, whining, pearl-clutching, panty-sniffing, slut-shaming fetus fetishists — or even just one, since one can make enough noise to sound like ten — there is a way to get rid of them.
The situation I offer up as a case study in Blog Disinfection began at Shakesville on Monday, in a post intended to be an open thread of support for a Shaker who was about to have an chemical abortion. Not everyone does handsprings and cartwheels after an abortion (*wink*), and the young woman was a little apprehensive about the procedure. So the idea of the thread was for other commenters to relate their abortion experiences and provide reassurance.
Predictably, once the abortion stories started flying, the thread attracted the unsavoury attention of the brain-damaged fetophiles at Stanek’s Partial-Birth Pancake House. Since the Shakesville thread was moderated to keep anti-choice nutcases from ejaculating all over the place, they had no choice but to focus on the most shocking(!) stories and grumble and shriek from a distance. One such story was told by a blogger called “Red Queen“, who Jill not only quoted but also helpfully posted a picture of (I know, creeeeeepy). What, no address and phone number? Asshole.
Naturally, one of the ghouls from Jill’s Bawling Blastocyst Bar & Grill found his way to Red Queen’s blog, where he commenced proselytizing and scolding the young woman for her sluttish ways in an unrelated post:
Then Red Queen proved the old George Carlin adage about anti-choicers: “Pre-born you’re fine, pre-school you’re fucked” by asking “Bob” to put his money where his fetus fetishizing mouth is:
Which immediately resulted in 12 hours of *crickets* from “Bob”. Followed by a short comment with a definite change of tone:
You do that, Bobber, get that paypal “straightened out”. See ya!!
UPDATE: After a couple of lame attempts to deflect attention away from his wretched hypocrisy, Bob seems to have suddenly lost interest in the thread at RedQueen’s… even though RQ’s got a contest going to see who will hit the paypal button more: the fetus fetishists or the slutty pro-choicers. So far it’s $230 to squat for the good guys — what a squandered opportunity for Bob! Thanks for playing, Bob! Hypocrite!
