More Religious Based Stupidity

As of Late I have heard many female friends from primarily Islamic countries tell me that they had to get rid of clothing and personal items before they return home from the US (Graduating College Students)lest they be in trouble. The thing that gets me is that these are really intelligent strong women yet they don't seem to be very upset that the culture (religion) that is most prominent in their homelands is so amazingly stupid and oppressive. Take this story from an Islamic district in Indonesia. In this district a woman can be arrested for wearing jeans. They are of course arrested by the Islamic police. While I find most religion generally ridiculous and at times evil, as of late it is hard not to put Islam at the top of the list. The idea that women should completely cover themselves so that men wont be tempted by them is not only oppressively offensive to the women but also just disrespectful to men are Muslim men really so weak that they cannot possibly control their sexual desires at the sight of a bit of skin or even a covered leg for that matter. Asinine.

Of course this is actually a really trivial example of Islam's oppression and cruelty towards women in comparison to the violence inflicted upon Muslim women on a daily basis.

How to be a sucessful in the right wing

To be a successful right wing republican or tea party type.

Simply cover you ears and eyes and then yell whatever nonsense is popular at the moment. Things about the constitution are good (be sure not to actually read the constitution or anything related to it). Catchphrases with no relevance to reality are good (Fox News and Glen Beck are always a good source for these. Thinly veiled homophobic and racist things are good too. Oh and go off about being overtaxed ( Be sure you don't do any research into actual taxation or the fact that taxes are actually at their lowest since the 50s.

Make sure you have a big sign (misspellings a bonus)

Be White

Stupidity and Condoms

So, I was listening to a story on NPR about a group called the AIDS Healthcare Foundation who are lobbying for mandatory condom use in the porn industry, Seriously? a group concerned about AIDS is trying to find someone to make laws regulating condom use in porn. I wonder what other things they could focus their efforts on? How about not letting Catholics tell everyone that condoms are sinful ? OH and how about revoking all funding for the Catholic morons who go to AIDS stricken countries and lie to the people about AIDS telling them not to use condoms ( with the handy threat of eternal damnation as incentive) . Or how about working on eliminating asinine abstinence only sex education in the schools, because that has worked really well so far. Fucking Idiots I have to wonder how they became so interested in the porn, hmmmmmm. I am sure there are more important condom and AIDS issues to lobby about.
