15 Freaky Facts About Octomom

Man, I think Nadya Suleman is really mentally ill. I mean, really mentally ill. I have no idea why her 14 children are still living in her house. After reading all about the Suleman kids in a forthcoming New York Times Magazine article, I feel fine saying her fetishistic breeding of children, plus plopping said children in front of video crews, constitutes child abuse. Yep, child abuse.

But she isn’t the only person we should be upset with; so many others are enabling what Octomom is doing with her kids. From the doctors who put the in-vitro eggs into Suleman to the film crew to the people who buy gossip mags about her kids — they are all contributing to this insane fetishism. The poor kids are the ones who’re suffering!

After the jump, 15 things I learned from the Times article on Octomom so you, too, can lose hope for our culture if this is what constitutes “parenting” these days. Keep reading »

What Does “A Real Wife” Do? Let’s Ask Twitter

If you use Twitter, you know that in the lower right-hand corner of your page, there is always a list of the top 10 “trending topics” that tells you what everyone is tweeting about. Sometimes everyone’s got “paranormal activity” or Taylor Swift on the brain, but oftentimes, people sound off on random topic ideas. Fun, right?

Well, things “a real wife …” should do has become a trending topic on Twitter and just wait until you read the hardy-har-har list of things people have come up with! I know some people are being silly and joking, but it’s got to be some statement on gender roles if literally hundreds of people are suggesting “a real wife” should keep her man happy with food and sex.

Republican National Committee’s Health Insurance Plan Covered Abortion

The Republican National Committee’s health plan with the insurance company Cigna has covered abortion since 1991, according to an investigation by the online news site Politico. Cigna’s health coverage plan allows employers to opt out of coverage for specific items, but the RNC, which employs members of the Republican Party, did not opt out of abortion coverage. Politico broke this news story yesterday and noted that the Republican Party’s own platform refers to abortion as “a fundamental assault on innocent human life.” RNC’s leader, Michael Steele, quickly responded in a statement promising they would opt out of abortion coverage from their health insurer.

Today’s Lady News: Spain Teaches Masturbation In Sex Ed Program

  • “Pleasure is in your own hands” is the new pro-masturbation slogan used by a sex ed program in the Extremadura region of Spain. The campaign has upset some Catholics in the country, despite having received funding from local youth and women’s affairs ministries. [Guardian UK]

(Another) Quote Of The Day: Carrie Prejean Quotes The Good Book

“No, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with getting breast implants as a Christian. I think it’s a personal decision. I don’t see anywhere in the Bible where it says you shouldn’t get breast implants.

“Meep!” It’s The New Word That Could Get A Kid Suspended

“Meep?” “Meep!” “Meep, meep, meep, meep, meep.” What the heck did I just say? Maybe Beaker’s friend, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, knows. The principal of Dancers High School in Massachusetts had no idea what the nonsensical Muppet-word meant, either. That old fuddy-duddy threatened his students with suspension after administrators learned of a dastardly plan for a “mass meeping.”

Luckily for everyone’s permanent record, the cacophony of “meeping,” which had been planned online, never happened. But, hey, kids planning a silly “mass meeping” is a hell of a lot better than kids planning a school shooting. Meep, meep! [ABC News] Keep reading »

Placenta Teddy Bears Are Pretty Disgusting

EW! So disgusting! Some kooky designer in London is turning afterbirth placentas into teddy bears. First, London-based Alex Green cures the placenta with salt to kill bacteria; then Green softens the organ with a mixture of eggs and tannins so it’ll take on the appearance of suede or leather. (Instead of, you know, a bloody organ that was chilling in your womb for nine months.) Green said he cuts up the placenta, sews it into a five-inch tall stuffed animal shape and fills the placenta teddy bear up with brown rice. He claims he wants to provoke “a debate about placentas and how we treat them,” noting that some people plant the placenta in the backyard and grow and tree, while in China, the placenta is somethings eaten for strength. Fair enough, but I, for one, think I’ll be more careful around friends who’ve just popped out a baby. [ABC News] Keep reading »
