  •  Jeesus... Somebody made a website for ova? (1+ / 0-)

    I sure as hell hope that's a joke and people aren't really buying funeral packages for tampons and maxi pads.  I clicked On it and read some of it - couldn't believe it.  My mother, on the other hand, would believe it, parody or not.

    Although it does reinforce what I've always told right wing friends... Every menstrual period "could" be a miscarriage of sorts.  While women release eggs every cycle they don't always get fertilized and don't implant in the uterine wall.  The moment of conception is not so much when sperm meets egg as when implantation is successful.  If it's not quite the right time in her cycle, a fertilized egg can't implant and thus, passes through and is expelled.  Happens all the time.  It's why I don't get why rape victims can't get a "morning after" pill - it prevents implantation - no implantation, no conception.  If you don't conceive, you can't abort, right?  It's a contraceptive pill, not an abortion pill.

      But I was taken in at first.

      Socialist? I do not think that word means what you think it means.

      is genocide.

      So, if you need a funeral for a tampon, you need an entire cemetery for a used condom.

      •  Isn't it also reckless abandonment? (1+ / 0-)

        I seem to remember that from "Legally Blonde."  / snark

        If you don't keep track of all of your "emissions" so you know where they are at all times and if they are not being put to proper "use" - it's abandonment.  

        (rolling eyes) - how many teenage boys (and adult men) are guilty of that nearly every day?
