His mind said No but his hands said GO

That more than a few conservative knuckledraggers view females as the baby-making equivalent of those bread machines that pop out perfect little loaves on demand is not a new concept, and often makes great fodder for parody and satire.  But occasionally one of these boneheads will belch out a quote of such brain damaged magnitude that it’s unparodyable, and there’s nothing to do but point and laugh.

The Divine Ms. Z points and laughs at New Brunswick “Progressive”(?)(!!) Conservative MLA Carl Urquhart, who, pondering a new budget from NB’s Liberal government, was inspired to drool on his Facebook page…:

“Another Liberal budget … Another $1 billion on the debt by March … Girls we need more babies or we will never be able to support our future.”

… which prompted Liberal MLA Joan MacAlpine-Stiles to dispute Urquhart’s image of women as peripheral fetal support systems:

“To suggest to New Brunswick’s young women that their only role in society and their only contribution to the New Brunswick economy is to have babies is demeaning and outdated thinking,” she said.

… forcing Urquhart to apologize:

“When I went back and read it, it was offensive, and I apologized because it was offensive,” he said.

“Sometimes when your mind is saying one thing and your hands are saying another it can get you in trouble.”

Indeed.

Keep those hands where we can see them, Carl.

    The first phrase of the first sentence in this post demonstrates one of the reasons why misogyny is wrong: it is treating women just as a means to and end (in this case, just as a means towards creating babies) rather than as persons (who should be valued in themselves).

  2. 2 Shade Thursday, December 3, 2009 at 3:51 pm

    You know I can never work out why people who make comments like this are the ones married.

  3. 3 Janus Thursday, December 3, 2009 at 4:21 pm

    “You know I can never work out why people who make comments like this are the ones married.”

    A lot of them for the second, third, and fourth time.

    Somebody flattened their learning curve.

    Carl’s response makes one wonder how many speaking parts he might possibly have and what those unmentioned parts were possibly muttering to themselves as he typed away on his blog.

  5. 5 Jasper Thursday, December 3, 2009 at 6:38 pm

    I don’t see anything wrong with what he said. Women should be staying home more these days having babies instead of taking steroids to prevent pregnancy.

  6. 6 Rob F Thursday, December 3, 2009 at 6:47 pm

    In other words, Jasper, you are a misogynist. Also, it time for an episode of facts for choads. You do know that it is possible to take hormonal contraception for reasons other than birth control, right? You know, like preventing acne or dealing with menstrual cramps.

  7. 7 The Anti-Social Socialist Thursday, December 3, 2009 at 6:49 pm

    Jasper, go die screaming in a fire you inhuman fuck.

  8. 8 deBeauxOs Thursday, December 3, 2009 at 6:50 pm

    Jasper you don’t get to decide what women do.

    The last time I checked, women were still free to choose whether to: marry or not, have children or not, be unpaid caregivers for family members or not, and to follow their minds and hearts into the areas of human activity that they felt drawn towards exploring.

  9. 9 Jasper Thursday, December 3, 2009 at 6:53 pm

    Rob F,

    Yes, I realize there are other reasons for taking BC, I’m not against taking it for health reasons.

    I don’t see how I’m a misogynist (women hater). I think you guys are way to senstive about this stuff…

  10. 10 Shade Thursday, December 3, 2009 at 7:19 pm

    Right here Jasper

    “Women should be staying home more these days having babies instead of taking steroids to prevent pregnancy.”

    Women should be doing what THEY want to do just like men get to.

  11. 11 Bruce Thursday, December 3, 2009 at 7:58 pm

    Jasper, after a while even a clueless hack like you who may in some strange way think you have something worthwhile to offer while you sit in your mother’s basement offering opinions to people who work very hard to say what they say while you enjoy the privilege, even the right, to mock them, must eventually realize that you are a loser extrodinaire.

    The only reason you get to comment on this site is JJ still values your entertainment potential, like a sad clown in a velvet painting. That and no doubt the entertainment factor everyone gets from watching my own reaction to you.

    I have to admit, you’re turning into kind of a hobby for the rest of us, or maybe my hands are saying one thing when I meant to say something else.

  12. 12 bleatmop Thursday, December 3, 2009 at 10:17 pm

    (had long rant but deleted it)

    Wow, that’s possibly the most hateful thing towards women I’ve ever read. I sincerely hope Jasper is a Poe because if he isn’t I see no point in even bothering with him anymore. Either way, I will do my best to ignore everything written by him and in response to him now. It just isn’t worth my time or energy (or letting him manipulate my emotions to put me in this bad of a mood).

  13. 13 Phatbiker Thursday, December 3, 2009 at 10:47 pm

    Jasper should go and join the taliban, his attitude towards woman is much the same as theirs. It’s a popular right-wing rant, there is not enough white christian babies being produced and our civilization is going to crumble because of it.

  14. 14 deBeauxOs Friday, December 4, 2009 at 2:53 am

    Jasper is clearly a member of the Christian Taliban; his comments here bear witness to his need and desire for a US religious/political system (aka sharia law) to keep the women under control.

  15. 15 Reality Bites Friday, December 4, 2009 at 5:15 am

    There’d probably be more white christian babies being produced if more white christian men weren’t such misogynist flaming assholes.

  16. 16 Cornelius T.Zen Friday, December 4, 2009 at 9:32 am

    Good morrow, all!
    You know, guys, arguing with Jasper is very much like wrestling with a pig. All you get is dirty, and the pig probably enjoys it.
    Let’s all agree, okay? Jasper is mysogynist, homophobic, racist, xenophobic, paranoid, and kant spel. Yet, he keeps coming bck here, which also makes him masochistic. What, the hair shirt and the cat o’ nine tails isn’t enough? If he really desires mortification of the flesh, all he has to do is strip, look in the mirror, and point. (“Shrinkage! The water was cold!”)

    I would like to wish a Merry Christmas season to all of you!

    Remember now, it’s not ‘Happy Holidays’, it’s Merry Christmas.

    See, I don’t hate you people, but you hate me.

  19. 19 deBeauxOs Friday, December 4, 2009 at 3:52 pm

    Jasper, you flatter yourself.

    I don’t hate you – how can I? You are a screen name.

    As a woman, I find the statements you make ignorant, loathsome, judgemental, gynophobic and offensive.

  20. 20 Jasper Friday, December 4, 2009 at 4:47 pm

    So deBeauxOs, I guess you think it’s ok for women to jack themselves up with steroids so men can have free sex with no consequences?

    Sorry, I respect women more than that.

  21. 21 fern hill Friday, December 4, 2009 at 5:01 pm

    Careful, deBeauxOs, Jasper may follow you home. *shiver*

  22. 22 Reality Bites Friday, December 4, 2009 at 5:10 pm

    I certainly think it’s OK for women to jack themselves up on steroids so they can beat the shit out of creeps like Jasper if he comes anywhere near them.

  23. 23 Jasper Friday, December 4, 2009 at 5:10 pm

    Fern,

    I can’t, I’m taken. Dr. Prole’s my girlfriend.

  24. 24 JJ Friday, December 4, 2009 at 5:14 pm

    Jasper – Nice guy, naming your left hand after Dr. Prole.

  25. 25 Jasper Friday, December 4, 2009 at 5:19 pm

    oh, *Dr.Prole is my*

    Big friggin deal. Boy, you guys are a bunch of nerds.

  26. 26 JJ Friday, December 4, 2009 at 5:22 pm

    Jasper – I wasn’t criticizing your grammar. (That’s a subject for another time.)

    Read Sloooooooowly. It’ll come to you.

  27. 27 Jasper Friday, December 4, 2009 at 5:30 pm

    I’m a righty JJ. Plus, the wifey does it for me anyways…It’s no fun doing it yourself anymore.

  28. 28 JJ Friday, December 4, 2009 at 6:14 pm

    the wifey does it for me anyways

    TMI!!!

  29. 29 Bruce Friday, December 4, 2009 at 6:54 pm

    Somebody was dumb enough to marry you? Unless she’s in a coma, or spending life behind bars, I’m having a hard time believing it.

  30. 30 The Anti-Social Socialist Friday, December 4, 2009 at 7:34 pm

    No, she’s a good little automaton droid – never talks back, lets herself be beaten regularly and will pop out a unit every nine months until she’s dead, just like da lawd commanded.

    Oh, and if she isn’t popping out a unit every nine months, Jasper you are going to hell… unless you really don’t get laid very often.

  31. 31 deBeauxOs Friday, December 4, 2009 at 7:45 pm

    Jasper, you are regurgitating propaganda spread by Lies-Site.

    Birth control pills that prevent contraception contain female hormones that are similar to the ones our bodies produce naturally when we are pregnant. Thus we don’t ovulate, we don’t have menstrual cycles and we don’t get pregnant.

  32. 32 Reality Bites Saturday, December 5, 2009 at 6:29 am

    Bruce, no doubt she figured Jasper was a step up from marrying her brother.

    But the chance of birth defects is greater with Jasper.

  33. 33 Jasper Saturday, December 5, 2009 at 7:15 am

    For your education:

    History has clearly demonstrated how prescient Pope Paul VI was, when he predicted that the practice of contraception would cause the man to lose respect for the woman, considering her a mere instrument of selfish enjoyment. The gigantic increase in the incidence of abortion and of sexually transmitted infections bears witness to the promiscuity that followed the legalization and wide availability of chemical contraceptives. The Pope also warned of the danger that public authorities, which take no heed of moral exigencies, would try to solve problems of the community by means illicit for married couples. Witness the worldwide promotion of contraception and abortion fostered by the United Nations today; and also, the mandatory one-child policy of the government of China.

    Paul VI, in Humanae vitae, stated that “If, then, there are serious motives to space out births, which derive from the physical or psychological conditions of husband and wife, or from external conditions, the Church teaches that it is then licit to take into account the natural rhythms immanent in the generative functions, for the use of marriage in the infecund periods only, and in this way to regulate births without offending the moral principles which have been recalled earlier.” Pius XII taught that unless some serious circumstances arise, spouses are obliged to have children. However, he also teaches that it is moral for the spouses to limit their family size or even to refrain from having children altogether, if they have sufficiently serious reasons.

    Relevant Medical Facts
    Some chemical “contraceptives” abort all of the time. All of them abort some of the time. They do this by preventing implantation of an embryo in the uterus. Elites in the medical profession try to justify their use of the word “contraceptive” by stating that there is no embryo before implantation. This statement is false. The science of human embryology demonstrated over 100 years ago, that a new individual human being comes into existence when the single cell zygote is formed, either by fertilization or by cloning.

    Using the oral contraceptive pill (OCP) before the first child is born causes a 40% increase in the risk of breast cancer. Taking it for four or more years before the first child is born grows that risk to a 72% increase. The OCP also increases the risk of cancer of the cervix of the uterus and of the liver. The condom does not provide complete protection from the risk of acquiring sexually transmitted infection.

  34. 34 Dr. Prole Saturday, December 5, 2009 at 7:40 am

    Bwahahahah, right Jasper, because BEFORE birth control, men totally respected women and in no way used them for their selfish enjoyment. Mmmmmhmmmmm. That’s probably the funniest and most absurd thing I’ll hear all day – maybe all week.

    And what have we told you about copy and pasting undocumented and utterly false statements made by other people without quoting and naming the source? You suck at blogging. And your medical “facts” are not facts, just forced-birther propaganda that has been debunked over and over and over and over again.

  35. 35 Jasper Saturday, December 5, 2009 at 12:51 pm

    “Bwahahahah, right Jasper, because BEFORE birth control”

    Yes, they did, way more then they do now Dr. Prole. I suppose you think men should take avantage of women. You have alot to learn Dr. Prole. The facts I gave you are true.

  36. 36 balbulican Saturday, December 5, 2009 at 1:20 pm

    “that a new individual human being comes into existence…”

    Jasper, could you provide a really clear of “individual human being”, please?

  37. 37 Cornelius T.Zen Saturday, December 5, 2009 at 1:21 pm

    Good morrow, all!
    Jasper: “Yes, they did, way more then they do now Dr. Prole. I suppose you think men should take avantage of women. You have alot to learn Dr. Prole. The facts I gave you are true.”
    Right, Jasper. Men respected women SO MUCH that they actually put into legislation that a woman was actually 3/5 of a human being in the eyes of God and the law. Men respected women SO MUCH that they withheld allowing them to vote until 1920. Men respected women SO MUCH that the depiction of St. Benedict wrestling The Devil in the desert shows The Devil to be a woman.
    Men respected women SO MUCH, that they engaged in active prosecution and persecution of any woman who attempted to employ birth control, in order to take control of her own reproductive system.
    Be a man, Jasper, and own up to your own misogyny.

  38. 38 balbulican Saturday, December 5, 2009 at 2:15 pm

    I ask quite seriously, Jasper, because some have argued that a “human being” is a fertilized ovum. If that’s your position, I will smile politely, acknowledge your right to that perspective, and file you under “slightly mad”.

  39. 39 Phatbiker Sunday, December 6, 2009 at 9:29 am

    I don’t get the “men taking advantage of women for their own selfish enjoyment” thing when it comes to birth control. Women enjoy and want sex as much as men, the days of spreading your legs and thinking of England are long gone (except for Jasper’s wife). Birth control has been liberating for women and puts them on a equal footing with men sexually, to enjoy sex without worrying about getting pregnant. I really couldn’t give a rats ass what some dead pope thought of birth control.
