Behold the Slippery Slope
From the article: "I'll never be able to afford it, but I know I won't regret it if I ever can, and I don't know why it upsets people," she said, according to News.com.au. "It's the same as a transsexual man having his penis cut off. It's never coming back, but they know it's what they want." (emphasis mine)

+Pradheep Shanker and +Rachel Palmer got me interested in a story in which this woman was a part and wanting to learn more, of course I Googled her. All I can say now is GOODNESS GRACIOUS!

The fact that there's a doctor (overseas) who is willing to perform this mutilation is horrifying. Treat her psychiatric condition of course, but treat it with surgery to satisfy a wrong desire? What if afterward she finds that she's uncomfortable LIVING in general? Do we send her off to Davy Jones Locker to satisfy that desire as well?

...wonder if she's got a GoFundMe...

She's comparing wanting to become a paraplegic to wanting to become female? Wow. Just about half of the population is female, and most of them are happy with that. Losing the use of your legs is a serious handicap that anyone in their right mind wouldn't want. Comparing the two is kind of an insult to women.

If the movie's half as entertaining as the review, it will be a good summer flick. :)
 
I made (yes, made) Andy go to San Andreas last night. Here's his review!

Is that a flag I can buy? I would put it on my flag pole.

'Nough said.
Updated 1:42 p.m. ET: TLC has reportedly pulled “19 Kids and Counting” from its schedule. — By now you've probably heard that Josh Duggar -- oldest son in the "19 Kids and Counting" family -- did some very bad things a long time ago. Apparently, when he was 14,...

Most people would be surprised and shocked to find out what their own kids, grandkids, friends of their kids and grandkids are talking about sexually and doing. I'm not laying it on the culture in the public schools, but that's the incubator.

I don't know why I love this song as much as I do but...it's a Fat Bottomed Girls kind of day. :)

They make the rockin' world go 'round. Pun intended I suppose. One of favorite songs from college days.

Honestly, if you're not going to read the article, don't comment on the post.
It's a simple principle.
Easy to follow.
Engaging in knee-jerk commentary makes you look like, well, a jerk.

I haven't had any since that second bout, thanks for your concern. Mostly, my big problems these days are the chronic pain from my neck injury. It's really gotten bad, and my hands and arms are usually in fairly severe pain. I'm sort of used to it, so I can work through it, but it's still difficult to deal with.

Love this article. ❤💙💛❤💙💛
My mother used to write on my bananas.  It is one of those weird things I remember about my school lunches.  I remember that she would always pack me a Red Delicious apple (which I would promptly throw in the garbage because Red Delicious apples taste, if I am being generous, like damp cardboard) and I…

Point Break REMAKE
IF I look at this as a new action movie without reference to the original (which I love, adore, cherish and watch often for the roles performed by Reeves, Swayze, and Busey and which I can't imagine being performed by anyone else, ever!), it looks pretty good. :)
But a Christmas release? Bit of mistiming there.

Reverse Engineering
From the article: These days, government is always open to a misery-making suggestion. The notion that public policy would somehow make life better is a relic of days gone by. It’s as if government has decided to specialize in what it is best at and adopt a new principle: “Let’s leave social progress to the private sector; we in the government will concentrate on causing suffering and regress.”

Suck it up, Cupcake!
My favorite bit from the article: Do you wish to be known as the first generation that comes with its own fainting couch? Did first- and second-wave feminists march to the barricades so their daughters and granddaughters could act like Victorians with the vapors?
 
Time to grow up: adulthood is not a safe space. 
If reading great literature traumatizes you, wait until you get a taste of adult life, Peggy Noonan writes.

I'm from a low-income background. When the authors of the "Spectator" piece wrote that that “Metamorphoses” can be “difficult to read and discuss as a survivor, a person of color, or a student from a low-income background” the spoke for me without my permission.

I feel... violated. :'(

Actually, no. I just feel irritated. :-P

Happiness and Forgiveness are decisions that we make, not emotions that we feel. 😊
Introduction
I'm a ♥ happily married ♥ woman with oodles of kids (a blessing every one) and I talk a lot about my faith, my family, and politics. I'm a bit of a fan-girl when it comes to Android and I pretty much love all things Google.

 - If any of those things make you cringe, do yourself and your blood pressure a favor and don't circle me. It's okay, I'll never know.

‼ » If I have not  circled you, you will not  be able to comment on my posts. « ‼

Things that interest me:
  • Android
  • Christian life
  • Politics (Conservative Libertarian)
  • Gadgets and techno toys
  • Google
  • Home schooling
  • Milton Friedman economics
  • Sci-fi & Fantasy (Game of Thrones, LOTR, Matrix, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica)
  • Whole foods, Organic, Low carb, Paleo/Primal
  • X-Box
  • Zombies
  • (I won't mention the sparkly vampires; it was a phase that I went through and I'm working on recovery)
My favorite quotes at the moment:

“For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors, and laugh at them in our turn?”― Mr. Bennett, Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen

"Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment." - Benjamin Franklin

The people who decorate the cakes are friendly, courteous, and professional. The bread, pastries, cookies and cakes taste great every time.
