In a Second-Hand Store...

This sign is a bit ironic.

Strike a (groinless) pose

So apparently people buy these "pose" sketches.  Look at the one on the left, following the line of the woman's right leg. The only possible conclusion is that the male lover has no groin whatsoever, and possibly no pelvis either.  It's a bit frightening IMHO.

Deserted Dolls

Many times when I see dolls  have this moment when I see them as the bodies of women.  It makes some everyday scenes suddenly very dark.

Ironman does the B&B

The "boob and butt" pose, that is. A rare example of the male of the species.

Introducing the classy paper plate

Portmeirion is a brand of crockery that is, if not actually shi-shi, solidly upper middle class. It certainly could not be called cheap.  So when it comes to the pictured product I have two questions:

1) Who the frelling frell thought paper plates were a good extension of the Portmeirion brand?

2) Who the frelling frelling frell is going to pay over $1.40 per individual paper plate?

I have previously mentioned the stupidity of having a cell phone that looks like a gun.

No to complete the circle of dumb... I give you: the gun that looks like a cell phone.

I'm not a sociopath, but

Here I am watching Forensic Files and thinking--note to self: never pick up a victim at a casino, too many cameras.

I just want to say

If it is not made from sheep meat (mutton, lamb etc) it is not shepherd's pie.

Seriously, people. Cut that shit out.

An Arm's Length from Common Sense

Pensiero via / CC BY-NC-ND
After a spate of gang assaults on women in the German city of Cologne, the mayor recommended women stay "an arm's length" from people they don't know in order to prevent sexual assault.

A lot of people objected to this because, as usual, it put the onus of responsibility on women to avoid being raped.  I am somewhat ambivalent about that.  Yes, I should be able to be naked and unconscious on the public highway and still safe from being raped, because we want to live in a civilised society.  Nevertheless it is only sensible that women, including myself, take certain precautions to avoid high risk situations.

My main objection mayor Reker relates to the sheer level of cluelessness she shows in suggesting this particular precaution in the context of this particular crime spree.  Specifically, an arm's length distance is impossible to maintain in normal dailly life, and means fuck all when you are being gang attacked in the street by a mob of 80 to 100 men.

Gang sexual attacks are a case where not only is the female victim not at all responsible for the crime, there is no reasonable precaution she could have taken that would not obliterate her right to be in public spaces at all.  Gang sexual attacks can only be responded to as break downs in civil order that require a mass, coordinated, and emphatic response in which victim behavior is simply not a factor.
