ImpishIdea: Fifty Shades Trilogy Review

As early as a direct and bawdy comparison between 'Earl' and 'Count' was made by Stephen Valenger:. The phonetic similarity of 'Count' to 'cunt' is so striking that accidental obscenities abound: She Inadvertently left out, O, in the pronuntiation of the Word Count [ The programme has also used "bunch of cundurangos" as a pun on 'bunch of cunts'; John FD Northover, An identical instance occurred when the first 'O' of a fake cinema sign was lower than the rest of the text: In the s, a sign in a Japanese railway station advertised 'Discunt Tickets', a misprint of 'Discount Tickets'; similarly, the menu for London restaurant Bengal City misprinted 'Discount' as 'Discocunt'.

Bangkok University's School of Accounting's logo replaces the 'o' of 'Accounting' with a graphic representing a ship, rendering it as 'Acc unting'. Like 'count', 'countdown' also has comic potential if its 'o' is removed, as we shall see later. This last example, 'Charlie Hunt', is especially significant, as its abbreviated form 'Charlie' has entered the common vernacular as merely a term of mild reproach.

The expression 'proper Charlie', for example, is used frequently without causing offence, as its connection to 'cunt' has been forgotten. Although 'Charlie Hunt' is the most often cited origin of the abbreviation 'Charlie', another possible source is 'Charlie Ronce', which is rhyming slang for 'ponce'. It has been abbreviated to 'grumble', though this abbreviation is frequently a reference to pornography, so-called because heterosexual porn includes images of vaginas 'grumble and grunts'.

In this pornographic sense, 'grumble' has been extended to form 'grumbled' 'caught in the act of masturbation', a pun on 'rumbled' , 'grumblehound' 'constant seeker of porn' , 'grummer' 'porn magazines' , 'jumble grumble' and 'grumble sale' 'cheap pornography' , 'grumbleweed' 'weak from excessive masturbation' , 'grumbelows' 'sex shop' , 'grumbler' 'pornography vendor' , and 'grumbilical chord' 'connecting lead for porn TV channels', a pun on 'umbilical chord'.

It is from this that the mild insult 'berk' also 'birk', 'burk', and the Australian 'burke' is abbreviated, thus, as Jonathon Green explains, "when [people] say 'You're a right berk', what they're actually saying is 'You're a right cunt', which is much more obscene" Kerry Richardson, In this sense, 'berk' is similar to 'Charlie', as both are common, mild insults whose origins as rhyming slang for 'cunt' have been forgotten.

In a spoof article supposedly written by Boris Johnson, Private Eye defined "Berkely Hunt" a mis-spelling of either 'Berkeley Hunt' or 'Berkley Hunt' as "Darius Guppy", in a reference to Johnson's association with Guppy tarnishing his public image; the magazine also combined 'Berkeley Hunt' and 'cunning stunts' to create the headline Berkeley Stunts ; later that year, it punned on the name Anton du Beke with "Anton Du Berk" ; and it also punned on Sally Bercow's surname: Other Cockney rhyming slang 'cunt' euphemisms are 'all quiet' from All Quiet On The Western Front ; extended to 'all quiet on the breast an' cunt' , 'eyes front', 'Grannie Grunt', 'groan and grunt', 'gasp and grunt', 'growl and grunt', 'sharp and blunt', and 'National Front'.

The Cockney pronunciation of 'cunt' was evocatively captured by Clark Collis "You cahnt! The Yorkshire equivalent is "coont" Peter Silverton, , and in Jamaican patois it is "cohnnnt" Marlon James, In backslang, 'cunt' is 'tenuc' and 'teenuc' the extra letters being added to facilitate pronunciation , and 'cunt' in pig Latin is 'untcay'. A word with so many hard consonants in it in short a short time: A feminist pressure-group called 'Cunst', an anagram of 'cunts' and a pun on 'kunst' German for 'art' campaigned in against male domination of the Turner Prize.

In a Top Gear episode Phil Churchward, , Jeremy Clarkson noted that there were "a lot of anagrams going on here" on various car registration plates, followed by a shot of his own plate, CTU N. The euphemism 'see you next Tuesday' utilises each letter of 'cunt' individually, with 'see you' sounding like 'c u', and 'n t' being the respective initial letters of 'next' and 'Tuesday'. Time Out magazine created posters with the slogan 'See you next Tuesday' in See You Next Tuesday is also the title of a play adapted from the film Le Diner De Cons , thus both the play and the film have 'cunt'-related titles.

Similar to 'see you next Tuesday' is "see you in Toledo" Brooke Gladstone, , though in this case the letter 'n' is provided by a contraction of 'in'. This spoof organisation placed a classified advertisement in the Kuwait Times: Then you need the Kuwait Union for New Teachers. They have also printed the text onto a t-shirt. Madonna made a similar joke in by creating a fake radio station, with a DJ announcing: Similarly, embedded within an article by Sally Vincent is the line "Point A moved to point B to point C until" , which is arguably an intentional reference.

There is no ambiguity whatsoever surrounding "-cunthorpe", a deliberate truncation of the Humberside town Scunthorpe on the back cover of a book by Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie Likewise, when a knight in Thomas Heywood's Wisewomen Of Hogsdon declares, in Latin, "Nobis ut carmine dicunt", he is described as "a beastly man" to highlight the embedded obscenity.

Mrs Roberts didn't like him, but that's 'cos she's a Contaminated water can really make you sick"; Trey Parker, and 'applicant' Dominic Brigstocke, As John Hamilton explains in an letter quoted by Linda Mugglestone , 'cunt' has "the same syllable as a contraction of Contra".

High Voltage puns on the word's phonetic similarity to 'Cantonese': Oz made a similar pun on 'conjugal': Matthew Parris once called 'cunt' "a word beginning with 'c', which I couldn't possibly repeat" Rod Liddle, , and in keeping with this is the commonest 'cunt' euphemism: Simon Carr reports that his children confuse 'the c-word' with "the K-word" He also quotes their confusion over 'cunt' itself: That's a rude word, isn't it?

Ruth Wajnryb writes "the 'SEE'-word" , to distinguish it from the hard 'c' sound of 'cunt'. If 'cunt' can be a 'c-word', can 'cock' be one, too? A surprisingly large number of these other words beginning with 'c' have also occasionally been called 'the c-word', usually for comic effect. The following is a representative selection. No surprise, then, that he is a fan of the c-word.

In fact, not only is Musk a regular player of the computer game known as Civilization , which is all about husbanding resources to build an epic human community, but that word peppers his public utterances" BBC World Service, ; "Catholicism: Not the c-word, a c-word" Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, ; "They definitely had the c-word: Conscience and Cyclothymia" Alexandra Mullen, ; "[Christopher] Nolan's script, co-authored with his brother Jonathan, never deigns to use the c-word: Catwoman" Robbie Collin, ; "non-carcinogenic [ Uh oh, the other dreaded c-word.

Cut" The Sun , ; "the c-word: These are not conservatories" Jon Stock, ; "Could you make it more celebratory? Hey, we're all guys here, I'll say it: Paul Casey, ; "isn't that Italian "champagne"? No, no, please don't mention the C-word" Johnny Morris, ; 'Curle': The "C" word" Fiona Phillips, ; 'comradely': Mr Clinton had charisma" Patrick Barkham, ; 'Clinton': Obama carefully avoided using the "c-word," as some in Washington termed it, though his description of events certainly sounded couplike" Peter Baker, ; 'Clegg': Carter" Mark Hosenball, ; "I would include Emanuelle And The Last Cannibals other than just, you know, because the title uses the c-word" Calum Waddell, ; "I don't want to use the 'C' word, chokers, so I am not going to" Commentatorballs , ; "[He] looked like someone who didn't even know what the C-word might be.

The revue show The C Word revolved around three c-words: Mark Mason's novel The C Words discusses 'commitment', 'coupledom', and 'children'. Grace Chin wrote a play about commitment titled The C-Word in There was even a c-word reference in a TV commercial for Phileas Fogg crisps After it was reported that Donald Trump called a woman a word beginning with 'c' and ending with 't', Stephen Colbert misunderstood for comic effect: The most frequent word, other than 'cunt', to be termed 'the c-word', is 'cancer': They don't mean Cancer.

They mean Commitment" John Allen Lee, There have been several books about cancer whose titles include references to 'the c-word': A cancer-awareness comedy event titled The 'C' Word was held in Toronto in Newspaper headlines often use the phrase 'the c-word' to pun on other contentious terms beginning with that letter: It's a strong word, sure, but more so in America. In England it's just like any other curse word". The most common example of this is 'Christmas', which, like 'cancer', can be seen as an alternative 'c-word'.

The headline Don't Mention The C-Word , for example, is about the removal of the word 'Christmas' from secular greetings cards. In the article, Richard Littlejohn asks, rhetorically: He has fun inventing phrases such as "Father C-word", "C-word Eve", and "C-word Day", all attempts to highlight the absurdity of banning the word 'Christmas'.

Less festively, he also bemoans the culture of liberalism, 'political correctness', and ' Guardian istas' in other words, his usual targets , asking: But try the other C-word".

As if that wasn't enough, Littlejohn went on to essentially repeat himself two Christmases later, in another article also headlined Don't Mention The C Word "the dreaded C Word [ Cricket experts were aghast at the "inappropriate use of the c-word"", in a spoof article headlined Kevin Pietersen In C-Word Drama That final example, from The Sun 's coverage of a speech by Gordon Brown, also resulted in a Sun leader column headlined C Ironically, after David Cameron goaded Brown for not saying 'cuts', when Cameron himself became Prime Minister, he used the euphemism 'difficult decisions' to avoid saying 'cuts'.

The sheer extent of the 'cunt' lexicon supports Scott Capurro's assertion that it is "plainly the most versatile word in the English language" Capurro also notes the variety of reactions provoked by the word: Some people will try to be smug about it and think, "Well, that does nothing for me".

And the person sitting right next to that person could be completely moved by the word, emotionally drawn to somebody who uses that word, you know.

And the person sitting next to that person could be someone who's completely disgusted by it. It's one of those great words that can get many, many different reactions from people. This ideology, which was originally termed cunt-power, sought to invert the word's injurious potential - to prevent men using it as a misogynist insult, women assertively employed it themselves: The new cunt would be matriarchal, feminist" Peter Silverton, The feminist Cunt-Art movement incorporated the word into paintings and performances, and several female writers have campaigned for its transvaluation.

In my evaluation of the ideology of cunt-power, I discuss the extent of its practicality, popularity, and longevity. However, words do hurt us, and they can be used as weapons. Walter Kirn has called 'cunt' "the A-bomb of the English language [ Verbal weapons cause intense emotional pain.

GQ has noted that "No word is more hurtful or destructive than the C-word" Catherine MacKinnon cites numerous examples of abusive language provoking distress and resulting in litigation.

Asserting that "A woman worker who was referred to by a [presumed male] co-worker as a 'cunt' could present a strong case for sexual harassment" , she quotes "Cavern Cunt", "stupid cunt", "fucking cunt", and "repeated use of the word 'cunt'" as phrases resulting in convictions for sexual harassment. Just as 'cunt' can be a violent word, its use can also have violent repercussions: By contrast, however, a more recent case was dismissed when it was ruled that the word 'cunt' did not constitute sexual harassment: A female student at Colorado University had alleged that another student called her a 'cunt'.

Hoffman was ridiculed by the press, not least because the name of her university is commonly abbreviated to 'CU': When men use the word 'cunt' to insult women, courts have deemed the act to be unlawful.

When men use it to insult other men, as Julia Penelope demonstrates, their usage is still inherently insulting to women: Signe Hammer explained that to call a man a 'cunt' "is to call him a woman: The other male insults cited by Penelope are also tangential insults to women: He calls it "the four-letter word a man can use to destroy everything with a woman [ Kirn explains the offensiveness of 'cunt' with reference to its plosive phonetics and its semantic reductionism: It strips away any aura of uniqueness".

A character in the Hungarian film Taxidermia also notes the ugliness of the word, or rather its Hungarian equivalent. Somewhat insensitively, Kirn feels that women over-react to the word when it is used against them: It doesn't leave a mark.

Yet women treat its deployment as tantamount to an act of nonphysical domestic violence". He also ignores the word's feminist reclamation, stating incorrectly: Essentially, Kirn's article is a macho defence of what he sees as the male privilege to call women cunts: When a man has already lost the argument and his girl is headed out the door [we] have one last, lethal grenade to throw". Unsurprisingly, women wrote to GQ to take issue with Kirn's article.

Kim Andrew stressed that Kirn's definition of 'cunt' as "the A-bomb of the English language" does not apply to the UK, where it is used more freely than in America: M Restrepo's reaction was that, provided 'cunt' is not used insultingly as Kirn employs it , it should not be tabooed: Cunt is no longer taboo. In welcome contrast to Kirn's article, Jonathon Green criticises the inherent patriarchy of the slang lexicon: This is a trend which has noticeably increased over time, as Germaine Greer explains: Specifically, the status and deployment of 'cunt' as "The worst name anyone can be called [and] the most degrading epithet" Germaine Greer, [a] , and especially as the worst name a woman can be called, serves to reinforce the tradition of cultural patriarchy, as Jane Mills points out: Smith calls 'cunt' "the worst possible thing - much worse than ['prick'] - one human being can say to another" and Simon Carr calls it "the worst thing you can say about anyone" As Deborah Cameron notes, "taboo words tend to refer to women's bodies rather than men's.

Thus for example cunt is a more strongly tabooed word than prick, and has more tabooed synonyms" Jonathon Green concurs that "the slang terms for the vagina outstrip any rivals, and certainly those for the penis [ William Leith notes that "We may have equality of the sexes but we do not have equality of sexual organs [ I can print the words prick, cock and dick as much as I like", adding coyly: Ed Vulliamy makes the same point: The inequality of 'prick' and 'cunt' is also explored in the HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm David Steinberg, , after the central character uses 'cunt' as an insult towards another man:.

Pricks and cunts, they're equal. According to Brigid McConville and John Shearlaw, 'cunt' "reflects the deep fear and hatred of the female by the male in our culture. It is a far nastier and more violent insult than 'prick' which tends to mean foolish rather than evil. This violent usage is a constant and disturbing reminder to women of the hatred associated with female sexuality and leaves women with few positive words to name their own organs" The 'cunt' taboo is but the most extreme example of a general taboo surrounding the lexicon of the female genitals: The word 'vagina' is also subject to this taboo: Braun and Wilkinson cite examples of the term being banned from billboards "the London Underground banned a birth control advertisement - deeming it 'offensive' for including the word 'vagina'" and theatrical posters "Promotional material for theatrical pieces whose titles contained the word vagina has been censored [ Indeed, after surveying women's own attitudes, Sophie Laws discovered that they even felt obligated to self-censor their own discourse: Virginia Braun and Celia Kitzinger published a 'survey of surveys', revealing the extent to which 'vagina' is a tabooed word: The German equivalent is even more demeaning: Word-meanings are dictated by consensus and contemporary usage, thus negative meanings can be reversed when pejorative terms are systematically reappropriated: Melinda Yuen-Ching Chen and Robin Brontsema have both described the specific reappropriation of 'queer', though they also discuss the concept of reappropriation in general.

Brontsema provides a succinct definition of the terminology: He views the process as a harnessing and reversal of the original invective: Laying claim to the forbidden, the word as weapon is taken up and taken back by those it seeks to shackle - a self-emancipation that defies hegemonic linguistic ownership and the a buse of power". Chen defines reclamation as "an array of theoretical and conventional interpretations of both linguistic and non-linguistic collective acts in which a derogatory sign or signifier is consciously employed by the 'original' target of the derogation, often in a positive or oppositional sense" The focus here is primarily on feminist reappropriations, specifically on feminist attempts to reclaim 'cunt' and other abusive terms: The mainstream success of reappropriations, however, depend upon the consensus of the population as a whole: The commonest derogative term for a woman - 'bitch' - is on the road to reclamation.

A woman should be proud to declare she is a Bitch, because Bitch is Beautiful. It should be an act of affirmation by self and not negation by others" Casey Miller and Kate Smith discuss this transvaluation of 'bitch' and also cite "Groups of feminists who choose to call themselves witches [ Other formerly derogatory terms for women have also been reclaimed: Witch, bitch, dyke, and other formerly pejorative epithets turned up in the brave names of small feminist groups" Gloria Steinem, Mary Daly has attempted to reverse the negative associations of words such as 'spinster', 'witch', 'harpy', 'hag', and 'crone'.

Where she is able to demonstrate non-pejorative etymological origins of these terms, she advocates a reversal of their current definitions. Daly does readily admit that not every modern negative term was originally positive 'crone', for example, has always implied old age , though in these cases she assert that negative connotations are a patriarchal perception: For women who have transvalued this, a Crone is one who should be an example of strength, courage and wisdom" In an episode of the sitcom Veep , 'crone' is confused with the c-word: I was like, 'What an old crone!

Regularly used as a pejorative term [ As Roz Wobarsht wrote in a letter to the feminist magazine Ms: Our use takes away the power of the words to damage us" Jane Mills adds that "crumpet has recently been appropriated by women to refer to men [and] women today are making a conscious attempt to reform the English language [including] the reclamation and rehabilitation of words and meanings" Maureen Dowd notes the "different coloration" of 'pimp' and charts the transition of 'girl' "from an insult in early feminist days to a word embraced by young women".

A less likely pioneer of reclamation is the self-styled 'battle-axe' Christine Hamilton, though her celebratory Book Of British Battle-Axes nevertheless marked a re-evaluation of the term. Julie Bindel cites 'bird' and 'ho' as "blatant insults [ Patrick Strudwick praises Bint Magazine for "reclaiming the term "bint" from the huge slag heap of misogynist smears and turning it into something fabulous" The offensive term 'slut' has also been reclaimed as an epithet of empowerment: Kate Spicer suggests that 'slut' is "a term of abuse that has been redefined by fashion to mean something cool [ In the s, Katharine Whitehorn famously used her column in The Observer to self-identify as a 'slut', using the term in its original sense meaning a slovenly woman.

In , Bea Miller released the song S. In , the campaigning group SlutWalk Toronto organised a series of 'slutwalks' - demonstrations in which women marched while wearing sexually-provocative clothing and holding banners reappropriating the word 'slut'. The SlutWalk campaign provoked considerable feminist debate, with Gail Dines and Wendy J Murphy arguing that the protesters were fighting a lost cause: But the focus on "reclaiming" the word slut fails to address the real issue.

The word is so saturated with the ideology that female sexual energy deserves punishment that trying to change its meaning is a waste of precious feminist resources" Germaine Greer was more enthusiastic about the SlutWalk phenomenon, though she cautioned that "It's difficult, probably impossible, to reclaim a word that has always been an insult" and she should know.

Here, the principal is the same as that pioneered by Madonna: It is not simply the word 'slut' that is being redefined, it is the lifestyle that the word represents - the meaning of the term 'slut' has stayed the same, though the cultural acceptance of its characteristics has increased. As Chinese is a tonal language, the same word can have multiple meanings depending on its pronunciation; this has been used subversively by women to reappropriate the pejorative term 'shengnu' 'leftover women' , which can also mean 'victorious women' when pronouced with a different tone.

This "pun that turns the tables on the prejudicial description" gained popularity following the television series The Price Of Being A Victorious Woman Tatlow, [a].

It is important to note the distinction between changing a word's definition and changing its connotation. Women have sought not to change the definitions of for example 'cunt' or 'slut', but instead to alter the cultural connotations of the terms. Thus, the reclaimed word 'cunt' is still defined as 'vagina' and the reclaimed 'slut' still means 'sexual predator'.

What have been reclaimed are the social attitudes towards the concepts of vaginas and sexual predators: In a sense, this is true of a large number of terms which are regarded as positive by some yet as negative by others: Salman Rushdie gives examples of older political terms which have also been reclaimed: Also, in Thailand, poor farmers protesting against the aristocratic political system wore t-shirts with the word 'prai' 'commoner' as a symbol of pride, in "a brilliant subversion of a word that these days has insulting connotations" Banyan, After Republicans derided Barack Obama's Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as 'Obamacare', Obama himself began using this more concise though originally derogatory term, professing that he liked it.

Richard Herring notes the paradox that, while the vagina should be celebrated, 'cunt' is an inexplicably offensive term: If you give words the power then they are nasty. But you can turn things around and use them in a different way" Anthony Barnes, Thus, reclaiming abusive language requires a change not in meaning but in attitude. Whereas Madonna is perhaps the most significant embodiment of this transvaluation - female sexual empowerment being asserted as liberating and subversive - the theory behind it has been articulated most dramatically by Germaine Greer in her essay for Suck on the word 'whore'.

Germaine Greer - who instigated the cunt-power movement, of which more later - wrote I Am A Whore , in which she consciously identified herself with the word 'whore', attempting to show that it can be positive rather than negative: Greer's biographer fundamentally misjudged her suggestion, calling it "a direct betrayal of what feminism was supposed to be about [ In fact, far from identifying as a prostitute, Greer was implying that the word 'whore' could be removed from its pejorative associations.

A term with similar status is the racially abusive 'nigger', which has been reclaimed or 'flipped' by African-Americans such as Richard Pryor's Supernigger , and is used in this context as a term of endearment. Jonathon Green suggests that this use "as a binding, unifying, positive word" dates from as early as the s Jennifer Higgie, Its reappropriation is not universally accepted, however: Spike Lee has criticised what he perceives as Samuel L Jackson's insensitivity towards the word's history.

Similar attempts to reclaim other racially abusive terms such as 'paki' notably the PAK1 clothing brand have been equally contentious: In his article A Bad Word Made Good , Andrew Clark notes the reappropriation of 'wog', formerly a term of racist abuse though later used self-referentially amongst Australia's Greek community: Greek[s] happily refer to themselves as wogs [ Furthermore, Todd Anten cites the increasing transvaluation of 'chink', noting that "Virtually any word that is or has been a slur can be reappropriated by the target group" Lenny Bruce made the point that the social suppression of taboo words such as 'cunt' and 'nigger' serves to perpetuate and increase their power: He argued that only through repetition can we remove the abusive powers of taboo words: The film's director later explained that he was consciously attempting to "take everything that's negative in the language and turn it into a positive thing" Criterion, The editor of the Jewish magazine Heeb intended its title as a transvaluation of the term, a variant of 'hebe': Annie Goldflam self-identified as both a 'kike' and a 'dyke', in Queerer Than Queer: The homophobic term 'queer' has also been positively - yet contentiously - reappropriated, for example by Queer Nation: Ratna Kapur and Tayyab Mahmud cite 'fruit' amongst other terms "appropriated by the gay community as words denoting pride, self-awareness, and self-acceptance" The gay-oriented cosmetics brand FAG: Fabulous And Gay has helped to reclaim 'fag', and Todd Anten cites the company's mission statement: Larry Kramer's book Faggots began the transvaluation of another homophobic term.

Another book title, Christopher Frayling's Spaghetti Westerns , was also intended as a positive reappropriation of a negative term: The similar film term 'chop-socky' has also been "repurposed" David Kamp and Lawrence Levi, The various epithets used to insult mentally handicapped people represent a further lexicon of reclaimed pejoratives. Mark Radcliffe profiles "people with mental health problems tak[ing] the sting out of stigma by reclaiming pejoratives" , citing 'Crazy Folks' and 'Mad Pride' as groups whose names "reclaim some of the stigmatising language".

This consciously humorous appropriation of 'crazy' and 'mad' must, however, avoid being misinterpreted as a trivialisation of those whom it seeks to empower. The term 'punk' has become associated with a musical genre, though it also has an insulting definition, as it is used to describe men who are raped by fellow prisoners in jail. Robert Martin, who was repeatedly gang-raped in prison, has now spoken out against jail-rape while also celebrating the term 'punk': He has performed the same etymological magic trick that others have done with [ Finally, we should consider 'otaku', 'geek', and 'nerd', all of which are negative terms implying anti-social obsessive behaviour.

Increasingly, people are self-identifying as geeks, otakus, and nerds, using the terms proudly: The comedy film Revenge Of The Nerds celebrated the atypical victory of nerds against jocks in an American school. It is clear that "The conversion of a derogatory term into a battle cry by radicals is not uncommon" Hugh Rawson, , though 'cunt' itself has yet to emerge as a fully reclaimed term.

Presently, the initial stages of its reappropriation are more contentious and complex than those of the epithets dicussed above. Todd Anten categorises slurs into two types, to distinguish between words in different positions along the road to reclamation: He also notes that it is not only words that can be reclaimed: He cites as an example the pink triangle used by the Nazis to identify homosexuals: An especially intriguing aspect of reappropriation is that of trademark applications.

Aware that potentially disparaging words are denied trademark status, Todd Anten argues that such restrictions should be lifted for "self-disparaging" terms: He also cites Joe Garofoli's comment that "[S]elf-labeling defuses the impact of derisive terms by making them more commonplace". Anten notes trademark applications for various contentious terms, all intended to be reappropriated as positive acronyms: In the latter case, 'jap', Anten notes that the term "may disparage multiple groups": Reappropriation is indeed a minefield.

The marginalisation of the feminine is apparent not only in relation to language but also in cultural attitudes towards the sexual organs themselves. A large penis is equated with potency and sexual prowess: Phrases such as 'well hung' maintain the male obsession with penis size, and John Holmes became one of the world's most famous porn stars thanks to his fourteen-inch erection.

Size and the female reproductive organs, however, have a reversed relationship: A large vagina is seen as indicative of copious copulation, prompting accusations of prostitution or nymphomania. Or, as Germaine Greer puts it: No woman wants to find out that she has a twat like a horse-collar" [a]. Corrective surgery - namely a laser vaginal rejuvenation operation - is available in such circumstances, to make "the vaginal canal smaller and the opening of the vagina smaller" Nicola Black, , whereas male genital surgery serves to enlarge the organ rather than reduce it.

Crude terms such as 'big cunt', 'bushel cunt', 'bucket cunt', 'bucket fanny', 'butcher's dustbin', 'spunk dustbin', 'bargain bucket', 'billposter's bucket', 'Big Daddy's sleeping bag', 'ragman's trumpet', 'ragman's coat', 'turkey's wattle', 'raggy blart', 'pound of liver', 'club sandwich', 'ripped sofa', 'badly-packed kebab', 'stamped bat', 'wizard's sleeve', 'clown's pocket', 'Yaris fanny', 'fanny like a easyjet seat pocket', 'a fanny like Sunderland's trophy cabinet', 'cow-cunt', 'double-cunted', 'sluice-cunted', and "canyon-cunted" Jim Goad, [b] , equate dilation with repulsion: Thus, alongside the linguistic suppression of 'cunt', the vagina is also physically suppressed: The penis is an external organ whereas the vagina is an internal one, therefore the penis is naturally the more visible of the two; there is, however, a cultural emphasis placed upon this difference that acts to reinforce and extend it.

The bulging male groin 'lunchbox' is identified as sexually attractive, whereas women are encouraged not to emphasise their groins but to camouflage them: Phallic references and penis jokes litter daily discourse, whereas vulval imagery is seemingly limited to pornography" Joanna Briscoe, The venerated male 'lunchbox' can be directly contrasted with the condemned female equivalent, the 'cameltoe'.

The female group Fannypack released a single called Cameltoe in which they criticised women for "grossin' people out with your cameltoe[s]" Similarly, the male codpiece's exaggeration of penile protrusion can be contrasted with female chastity belts that lock away the vagina. Also, excessive female pubic hair the 'bikini line' is shaved to render the area indistinguishable from any other part of the body: Oliver Maitland contrasts artistic representations of the vagina with those of the penis: The physical differences between the male and female sexual organs are central to Sigmund Freud's theory of penis envy.

This is the notion that a girl perceives her clitoris to be the result of her castration, and, faced with what Freud terms an "inferiority" , develops a desire for the visible, external symbols of virility possessed by men.

Joan Smith answers this with the proposition that "it's time to start talking, pace Freud, about the terrible problems men have in overcoming their cunt envy" , a timely riposte to Freudian phallocentricity. Germaine Greer's key feminist text is titled The Female Eunuch , though accusations of penis envy serve merely to trivialise the feminist feeling of physical and linguistic marginalisation.

The 'female eunuch' is symbolic of the desexed representation of the female sexual experience, rather than representing a literal desire for a male organ. Patriarchal marginalisation is not, therefore, a literal neutering of women, though it does generate this metaphorical effect; while the penis is exaggerated, the vagina is rendered subordinate.

Male attempts to marginalise the vagina lexically, physically, and pictorially can be seen as symbolic attempts to suppress female sexuality. The myth of the vagina dentata discussed in more detail later is appropriate in this regard, as there are many mythological instances of toothed vaginas being blunted by male weapons: A Mimbres bowl drawn by Pat Carr from a Zuni Pueblo original depicts a man's club-like penis inside a vagina dentata to illustrate a myth involving two men who meet eight women with vagina dentatas: They have teeth in their vaginas.

They will cut you and you will die. When the oak members were worn out, they put them aside and took the hickory ones. By daylight the teeth of these women were all worn out" Pat Carr and Willard Gingerich, Symbolically, this male domination over female sexuality - using a tool to cut vaginal teeth - clearly represents the power of the phallus and the weakness of the vagina, or, in other words, the Magnolia mantra quoted above.

According to Pueblo mythology, the Ahaiyute would "break girls' toothed vaginas with false wooden penises" Marta Weigle, A Jicarilla Apache Indian myth describes four 'vagina girls' who swallow men with their vaginas, until a medicine administered by the male 'Killer-of-Enemies' neutralises their power: But this medicine destroyed their teeth entirely" Catherine Blackledge, In a similar example, "There was a Rakshasa's [demon's] daughter who had teeth in her vagina.

When she saw a man, she would turn into a pretty girl, seduce him, [and] cut off his penis" - the only way to neuter her was to "make an iron tube, put it into her vagina and break her teeth". Pueblo Indian artwork depicts "efforts to remove a woman's vaginal teeth with a false penis made out of oak and hickory", and this ceremony is now symbolically re-enacted: Provoked by the sudden intrusion, the demon responded by biting off the young man's pecker".

The woman's "cock-chomping beaver" was subdued by an iron dildo, an object which is still celebrated on the first Sunday of every April at the Kanamara Matsuri event in Kawasaki, Japan. Our environment is becoming increasingly saturated with sexual images, justified by the maxim 'sex sells'.

This situation, which Brian McNair terms "The sexualization of the public sphere" , predominantly involves images of women, appealing to heterosexual male desires at the expense of heterosexual female ones.

Significantly, however, they represent a "tit-and-arse landscape" Barbara Ellen, , with the breasts and buttocks over-exposed and the genital area airbrushed away. As Germaine Greer notes, these images are "poses which minimize the genital area" and "The vagina is obliterated from the imagery of femininity" [a]: Catherine Blackledge ascribes this prejudice to Christian misogyny: Albert Ellis explains that our culture's obsessive interest in breasts and buttocks and disinterest in the vagina is the result of subconscious displacement: Germaine Greer's explanation is more direct: She has actually incorporated a drawing of female ovaries into her signature, in a personal attempt to increase their visual representation.

Germaine Greer's term 'womb-fear' highlights the underlying reason for both the cultural suppression of the vagina and the linguistic suppression of 'cunt'. At the heart of the abusive impact of 'cunt', and the paranoid marginalisation of the vagina, is the implication that the female genitals are disgusting and fearsome: Mark Morton describes the vagina as "a part of the female body that has traditionally been considered shameful or menacing" Andrea Dworkin writes despairingly of the "repulsion for women [ Indeed, such is the level of disgust with the "monstrous female genitals" that, as Eric Partridge notes, the abusive term 'cunt face' is "even more insulting than the synonymous shit face" - the vagina is regarded as even more disgusting than excrement.

The clinical sterility of tampon advertising, for example, paradoxically demonstrates a profound disgust for the vagina: In their paper Socio-Cultural Representations Of The Vagina , Virginia Braun and Sue Wilkinson identify several "persistent negative representations of the vagina", dividing them into categories such as The Vagina As Disgusting "The vagina is often represented as part of the female body that is shameful, unclean, disgusting" and The Vagina As Dangerous "The Western construction of women's bodies as a source of horror, fear, and danger [ After many conversations with women, Betty Dodson reported that a great number of them viewed their own genitals in negative terms: This attitude is instilled during childhood, as David Delvin notes: Jane Ussher describes the cyclical process whereby childhood confusion leads to cultural phobia: In this way, social stereotypes which define women's genitals as unpleasant, [mal]odorous and unattractive, are internalized by the female child" Judith Seifer suggests that the prejudice is actively instilled at a very early age: Even a scientific programme on the Discovery Channel demonstrates cultural womb-fear: The reductive usage of 'cunt' as a term of unparalleled abuse reflects both a fear of the vagina and a misogynist hatred of it.

This hatred manifests itself in ingrained cultural representations of the vagina as an abject organ: The t-shirt slogan 'salty yoni sweet dick' unfavourably contrasts the tastes of the vagina and penis. The slang terms 'site box', 'fanny like a rabid dog', 'gorilla's armpit' and, especially, 'gorilla autopsy', present the vagina as an abject organ. The slang phrase 'smells like a pile of dead fannies' is used as a simile for something malodorous, and the barrack-room ballad The Ballad Of Lupe also known as Down In Cunt Valley is equally unpleasant in its imagery:.

Also, compare this monologue by Jim Goad, from his morally ambiguous and provocative zine Answer Me! Filthy fucking cunt, rotten diseased fucking cunt". The issue of Answer Me!

It was felt that many of the articles in Goad's zine condoned and even encouraged the rape of women. More poetic than Answer Me! But to the girdle do the Gods inherit, Beneath is all the fiends': There's hell, there's darkness, there is the sulphurous pit, Burning, scalding" William Shakespeare, The Dread Of The Vagina In "King Lear" , Peter L Rudnytsky notes the bifurcation of the female body as described in Lear , with "the human or divine region above and the bestial or demonic below" He also, perhaps less convincingly, finds further pejorative references to the vagina in the play, including "the female genitals as a place of [ Furthermore, he cites a play by George Wilkins, apparently inspired by Lear , in which another scholar has detected a genital allusion: Wilkins's line "in hope shee can open her teeth" , inspired by Shakespeare's "face between her Forkes" from Lear , has been interpreted by Frank Whigham as a vaginal reference "vagina dentata, the fiendish face between her forks", John Weir divides attitudes towards the vagina into two opposing viewpoints: It is the former of Weir's two categories that is reflected in slang terms such as 'nasty', 'stink', 'stinkhole', 'stench trench', 'smelly cunt', 'smelly pussy', 'slime hole', 'smell-hole', 'stinky cunt', 'stink-pit', 'something crawled in and died', 'dirty cunt', 'rotten crotch', and 'scabby cunt'.

These words and phrases all equate the vagina with filth and dirt: One of the interviewees in Shere Hite's sex survey described how her male partner "thinks the vulva area smells ghastly", and Oliver Maitland even cites a female comment that vaginas are "Dirty, smelly things" Boyd Rice cites a quotation usually attributed to the Latin writer Tertullian which defines 'woman' as "a temple A scene in the film The Shawshank Redemption , in which a man emerges from a sewage pipe, has been interpreted as a metaphorical rebirth, with the sewage pipe symbolising a birth canal: In On Mrs Willis , John Wilmot wrote of the eponymous prostitute that "her cunt [is] a common shore" It is this viewpoint that seemingly inspired many traditional limericks, drawing their imagery from "[the] filth down there, between the legs, in the hole" Boyd Rice, Comic strips such as It's Jemima And Her Smelly Vagina in Gutter , and Dirty Annie And Her Smelly Fanny in The Trout , position the vagina as an organ of abjection, an attitude exemplified by the slang phrase 'Billingsgate box', which compares the vagina's odour with that of a fishmarket.

Similar terms include 'ling' 'vagina' , 'fish' 'vagina' , 'fish-market' 'vagina' , 'bit of fish' 'vagina' , 'fishpond' 'vagina' , 'fishtank' 'vagina' , 'tench' 'vagina' , 'trout' 'vagina' , 'tuna' 'vagina' , 'fish-cunt' 'woman' , 'fish-fanny' 'woman' , 'tuna taco' 'cunnilingus' , 'ling-grappling' 'sex' , 'have a bit of fish on a fork' 'sex' , 'fish fingers!

This long-standing belief, that "the vagina resembles a fish because like a fish it stinks", is the commonest example of what was described in as the "historical cultural connection between women's genitals and filth and disease" Celia Roberts, Susan Kippax, Mary Spongberg, and June Crawford. The connection is evoked in these song lyrics:. Ughhhhhhh" XXX Maniak, In a slight variation, Jim Goad smeared a dead squid over his magazine Chocolate Impulse: We used a [ Criticising these attitudes, Alix Olson reminds us how advertising distorts reality, creating 'feminine intimate hygiene' products that are completely un-necessary:.

Gray, Auburn, Ebony, Gold. We'd ban commercials of: Are you not so fresh? Is your vag repulsive? Do you stink of fish? Not only are vaginas "continually denigrated" Laura Kipnis, as dirty and diseased, they are also literally demonised, regarded as a 'chamber of horrors', as "the deadly genitals of woman" Barbara Creed, , and as hellish 'cunnus diaboli': The vagina dentata is the mouth of hell - a terrifying symbol of woman as the 'devil's gateway'".

The title of Catherine Breillat's film Anatomie De L'Enfer is a reference to the vagina, and Breillat's objective in making the film was to confront viewers with vaginal images: In the end, who is horrified by women's genitalia? Yet they slowly get used to this horrific vision" Lisa Ades, Breillat's observations are confirmed anecdotally by Stephanie Zacharek: Particularly a friend of mine, a critic, wrote: He just, like, didn't wanna look at that".

Furthermore, the vagina is also known as the 'devil's kitchen', the clitoris as the 'devil's doorbell', and the cervix as the 'seal of Hades'. Pauline Kiernan writes that "Hell is a term frequently used [ Jelto Drenth cites Christian vagina-phobia - "The vagina is seen as the devil's stigma" and warns that "Anyone tempted to enter a vagina should be aware that great dangers lie in wait for him".

Andre Schwarz-Bart cites the expression "Wash your devil" 'wash your cunt' and young Ifaluk women at puberty are traditionally told of "the "devil" beneath [the] skirt" Penelope Shuttle and Peter Redgrove, An illustration by Eugene Le Poitevin Les Diableries Erotiques , depicts a group of seductive female devils, with skulls on their chests, inside a vagina.

Slang terms for 'vagina' such as 'mark-of-the-beast' perpetuate this association, as in the drama Witchcraze: Barbara Creed, in a chapter titled Woman As Monstrous Womb , asserts that "From classical to Renaissance times the uterus was frequently drawn with horns to demonstrate its supposed association with the devil" Ruth Wajnryb links this association of femininity with monstrosity directly to 'cunt' itself: It is part of [ Medusa, the female demon, is also evoked in vagina mythology, leading Orlan to display images of her vagina "[alongside Sigmund] Freud's text on the head of Medusa [which] read: Elaine Showalter also cites Freud's equation of Medusa with a deadly vagina: For men to unveil the Medusa is to confront the dread of looking at the female sexual organs" Freud's equation of Medusa with the vagina is significant as it presents the vagina as an organ capable of castrating the male penis: Thus, the "fearsome female genitals" Penelope Shuttle and Peter Redgrove, are repeatedly associated with diseases and foul smells, regarded as abject, disgusting organs, stinking and pox-ridden - "that disgusting sick hole down there", as Jim Goad puts it [a].

Furthermore, they are also equated with demonic and Satanic figures such as Medusa and the devil, damned as a "daemonic womb" Camille Paglia, The Fellowship Of The Ring includes the fiery Eye of Sauron, which has been interpreted as a vaginal symbol representing "ultimate evil" Duncan Tucker, Another film with an evil entity interpreted as vaginal is Kiss Me Deadly ; its apocalyptic atom bomb, a reference to Pandora's Box, can be seen as "an atomic female orgasm" Graham Fuller, , a reading initially proposed by Carol Flinn: These misguided male associations perpetuate male anxiety about women's genitals, and thus also perpetuate the avoidance of them in male-dominated language and culture: They see it as a gaping maw, at times toothed, frighteningly insatiable.

It is then that male fears make them monstrous, hellish, and vile, disgust-evoking places" William Ian Miller, We have seen how the word 'cunt' and the vagina itself - the signifier and the signified - are both suppressed in language and culture. They are associated with uncleanness 'cunt' as a 'dirty word' and the vagina as 'smelly' , and this false projection of abject qualities is rooted in a fear of "the demonic bodies of women" Edward Shorter, Fundamentally, fear of the vagina leads to its symbolic and linguistic representations being suppressed and its physical characteristics being demonised.

Censorship of 'cunt', obliteration of vaginal imagery, and association of vaginas with disease all stem from a primal fear of the vagina itself. Central to the discussion of male cunt-hatred and womb-fear is the myth of the vagina dentata, "a motif occurring in certain primitive mythologies, as well as in modern surrealist painting and neurotic dream, which is known to folklore as 'the toothed vagina' - the vagina that castrates" Joseph Campbell, The vagina dentata evokes the male castration complex, which in this instance is the fear that, once it has entered the vagina, the penis will be bitten off and consumed - the fear of "witches stealing men's penises with their vaginal teeth", as Catherine Blackledge puts it The vagina dentata myth is the most potent symbol of male "dread of the female genital" HR Hays, There are several possible explanations for the persistence of the vagina dentata myth, all of which relate to male fears of symbolic post-coital death: An illustration by Alfred Kubin is a clear example of this fear, depicting a man with an erection diving into an oversized vagina as if it were a swimming pool.

Kubin's title, Todessprung , suggests that the male figure is leaping to his death. Semen can be said to symbolise life, thus the release of semen into the vagina may represent the transference of life from the penis to the vagina. Likewise, when the penis has ejaculated and withdrawn from the vagina, its flaccid state is perhaps symbolic of death when contrasted with its pre-penetration tumescence.

The connection between sex and death is a well-established one: Also relevant here is the previously discussed notion of the vagina as a harbinger of disease: The central fear, however, is that of castration, that the vagina will bite off the penis during intercourse: Stephen King admitted that his greatest sexual fear was "making love to a woman and it just slammed shut and cut your penis off", and a character in 44 Inch Chest dreams that his wife's "cunt had dentures" Malcolm Venville, Exploiting the vaginal slang term 'beaver', Stewart Ferris notes that both beavers and vaginas can "bite your fingers off" , with the finger here being a clear substitution for the penis.

Basic Instinct , Body Of Evidence , and GoldenEye all exploit these fears, depicting women played respectively by Sharon Stone, Madonna, and Famke Janssen who either murder their partners during sex or literally fuck them to death as do the mermaids in the film Empires Of The Deep.

A Madonna song featured the line "My sex is a killer". Such behaviour amongst widow and redback spiders, praying mantises, midges, horned nudibranchs, and Photuris fireflies, is well-documented, and male honey bees are prone to sudden death shortly after ejaculation. Such coital cannibalism actually has evolutionary advantages, as the body of the male, if eaten, provides nutrition for the gestating offspring. This is a logical extension of the 'femme fatale' Film Noir archetype, the mythical succubus, and the 'honey trap' entrapment strategy.

The fact that the vagina extracts semen, induces penile flaccidity after orgasm, and is perceived as a source of disease, contributes to the vagina dentata myth, the fear of the vagina as a murderous, violent demon.

More potent than any of these explanations, however, is the male castration complex, the fear that the penis will be removed during intercourse: Closely related is the penis captivus complex, the fear that the penis cannot be withdrawn from the vagina after penetration: In his journal paper on the subject, F Kraupl Taylor described a medieval case of penis captivus in which "sinners who had indulged in clandestine intercourse in churches and were discovered only the following day, when prayers or a splash of water brought liberation", though the incident is presumably either exaggerated or apocryphal.

It's an unsettlingly electric and effective sequence that, rather than explain any why's, simply allows the audience to experience and imagine the evil that permeates this man or person or thing?

On the day of a horrific shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that claimed the lives of at least 11 people, some people wondered if President Donald Trump would go ahead with planned events for the day, including speaking at the Future Farmers of America Convention in Indianapolis and a rally in Illinois. The elements apparently left his hair looking not exactly the way he likes it. Though he drew laughter from the crowd, many people found the joke to be in poor taste, given the circumstances.

For me it was a cruise to the Bahamas. Couldn't wait to get off the ship to call it a ship of fools would be insulting to fools everywhere and when we did it was terrible weather, buggy, muggy, just awful. Found the whole place a tourist trap. Never so happy to get home. New thread and as in previous threads anything can be discussed here figure skating wise.

Just be nice and have fun. Or should this slasher slash its wrists? Should they erase Laurie Strode's history as the biological sister of Michael Myers? Or should Jamie Lee Curtis keep both chromosomes? Beautiful neighborhoods and lots of museums, green space, and so forth.

Winter is a different story, but fall is something special. The Arizona Mirror caught state Rep. The Mirror took screen shots of the retweets, which have since been deleted by the conservative lawmaker. Several creatures underwent the procedure and shortly thereafter complained of unexpected side effects. He was later physically restrained after he stole a scoop from the ice cream cart in an effort to scoop out his own brains. She was later saved by Jersey Police after throwing herself into the English Channel wearing a fashionable grey ensemble.

The relationship between American Muslims and the Democratic Party is often described as a marriage of convenience. One of the best illustrations of this was the appearance of Khizr and Ghazala Khan at the Democratic National Convention.

The Khans, parents of a U. Khizr Khan was a political independent who supported Reagan twice. But now the Khans were ardent Democrats. What choice did they have? Not even the parents of a war hero—the so-called good Muslims—were protected. As a result, more than three-quarters of Muslim voters cast their ballot for Clinton. The bed I'm in now is a piece of shit and I wake up every morning with a back and neck ache.

So my new bed will surely be fabulous. But what if it's not? I have days to mull over it so there's that. But I've been dreaming of a new bed for years and my dream is finally coming true thanks to a small inheritance. I just hope it's the salve I've been praying not literally for for my screaming back and neck.

As the Wachowskis close their offices, Lana Wachowski has reportedly said she is done with filmmaking and "accomplished everything she set out to do. I just watched The Billionaire Boys Club and he looks like he wants to suck the cum out of Ansel Elgort's cock in every scene. The handsomest and most influential male heartthrob ever on the screen, and yet we rarely discuss him.

He was almost certainly mostly gay, and yet that charlatan and sensationalist Kenneth Anger so twisted around so many influential and oft-quoted stories about Valentino in the first "Hollywood Babylon" book that it's hard now to know what's fact and what's fiction. What's the best and most accurate biography about him that won;t be padded with Kenneth Anger or Darwin Porter-style exaggerations?

We taped their pictures to our walls, doodled their names on notebooks and imagined them as our future husbands, but these celebs are not the Hollywood hunks they once were. Where all the Gaga haters now? Where are the people saying this movie would flop? Does anyone else think she doesn't deserve her reputation? Christine Barianski did seem ungrateful. The unnamed father says his teenage son is now being bullied at Nixon-Smiley High School because his teacher told his girlfriend in front of a classroom full of students that he is gay and only using her as a cover.

The father insists, however, that his son is straight. The father, who filed a complaint with the school district, has already had a meeting with the Nixon-Smiley principal and the accused teacher, who reportedly admitted to making the comments. It's on the small side but both XX and I are over 50 and downsizing, getting rid of all of the shit we've accumulated in our lives. Realtor located this gem and we're seriously considering it.

I moved out at 18, literally right after high school, and haven't had support from my family so I'm used to making it on my own and not relying on anyone. Not having a supportive family forced me to be independent early, but at the same time I feel like I'm way behind compared to other people my age.

I'm in my early 20s, pay all my own bills and everything but still haven't finished college, I've only had one relationship and I'm really stupid when it comes to life skill stuff, so pretty immature in those ways. Sometimes I have a hard time relating to people my own age since most of them either still live at home or their parents help them out a lot. I admit I'm a bit jealous tbh, especially when I can't miss work even if I'm sick while people I work with take the whole weekend off to go to a football game or something, so in that way I feel more mature and responsible than other people.

Ricki did acknowledge that Ball died just a few weeks later though. Not long ago, many clubs catered to enthusiastic leathermen. I've done a little research on Pornhub, comparing size-meat straight vs gay. In the gay category, there's no one who even comes close to what straight players like Shane Diesel, Julio Gomez and Mandingo are packing. And if the link I found yesterday re gay porn stars is accurate, some of those guys are downright puny when put up against the afore mentioned Dielsel, etc.

I wish it was the other way around. And am I just sounding like a cliche when I say I found it odd that only one black guy made the list? I finally got some Green Gorilla cbd oil. It was bucks for a small bottle which lasted two weeks with the way I was using it.

I started sleeping soundly at night for the first time in years. It improves my overall mood and sense of well-being and I have GAD so it's a big improvement for me. It seems to quiet my incessant brain chatter and short circuit my crippling anxiety. I ordered Charlotte's Web cbd oil and that's taking for fucking ever to get here. Almost two weeks since I ordered it and it's not here yet.

I should have gotten expedited shipping. The first thread is full and we must keep discussing the sagging tits, prosthetic dicks and the looming AIDS epidemic. Anyone else puzzled by the PG13 rating? Mercury's life was pretty much "R" rated. Does the film leave things out? I'm still down to see it. She seemed like she would continue to have singles on the radio, but she disappeared after her first couple albums.

I am struggling with this now. I have a long history of not leaving bad relationships, but the latest is pretty destructive. He has been a cheater all his life. I knew it very early and decided to stay, and get attached over the past three years. Now it's hard to let go. The only upside is that we live in different cities I moved away for work. Got my tires changed over for winter yesterday and my mechanic challenged me around social issues like welfare and the environment.

It was obvious he had a stick up his ass about something and was baiting me the whole time. I didn't take up the argument, but upon reflection found it to be insulting behavior and inappropriate in a business relationship. Since this behavior is now part of a history of 'forgetting appointments' in the past, should I take the hint and find someone else?

Good mechanics are few and far between and they do good work and I don't want politics to start influencing my patronage of local businesses. What would you do, DL? Phew, for a minute there I thought he might have been posing for a selfie when he fell. Now that would have been stupid. Oh, wait a minute.

It is sitting more or less in the center of the house and is on the high setting. I was told moist air in the winter prevents electric shock when walking around and touching things. Also, has anyone experienced mold when using one? I was told that warm mist is less likely to cause mold than cool mist. Across five posts on Instagram three of which he has since deleted , the year-old directly attacked the survivors of the Parkland school shooting in Florida and shared rightwing memes.

Hughes drew on his own experiences at the Bataclan: A third, deleted post, contained multiple images: In a fourth, deleted, post, Hughes shared a photograph of a pro-second amendment patch, with the caption: A fifth post, apparently made after deleting the previous three, contained an image of a ceramic eagle. Saddens me to see so many not have this motto for the same In case you want watered-down, "Edited for Television" versions of classic Jason movies interrupted by commercials.

He's 38, never married, no legit girlfriends though his PR team has been pathetically pretending otherwise in SM. He pings to high heaven. The bios that stated he was gay, have been scrubbed. The clips of his gay roles have dissapeared from Youtube. Last year, Heughan and his rumored bf -Luke Neal- spent over a month travelling together around the world.

Sam also brought Luke to the Outlander premiere and several private parties. Have you never met a theatre queen before? He's Luke Evans 2. Catch Archie's Serpents tattoo, Alice's Serpents tattoo, Alice in bed with FP, what appears to be the sacrifice of Polly's twins, an eldritch horror in the Cooper living room, and Kevin and Moose kissing in broad daylight in front of other people. Some of the biggest stars in royalty were sexual predators and pedophiles.

Most didn't even deny it. The Popes blessed them! Some even wrote songs about it! Henry III's first bride, innocent and virginal 13yo French girl Eleanor, had never met her year old husband before the day of the wedding.

She gave birth to her first son within three years, when still only 16, and had two more children before she was So what does DL think of this couple? They post a lot of charity stuff like helping the homeless, planting trees, finding mentors for gay kids. They also have recently promoted a lot of products. Some think they are attractive and nice and haters are just going to hate.

Others say they seem fake and everything seems too forced and too perfect. I stayed home from work today and am loving this new Netflix series.

Kiernan Shipka is fantastic and Ross Lynch is adorable. I'm buying a gift. The giftee requested a book about the history of Sinn Fein. When I go to Google to look at reviews or recommendations it's just.

Can any helpful DLers help me narrow the search by recommending a well-reviewed book about Sinn Fein or a niche website? Until she explained it to me, I didn't even know that such a hobby existed.

It seems strange, to write fiction based upon fiction, doesn't it? My co-worker is really nice, and I get along with her quite well, so I didn't want to be rude and ask her why she devotes so much time to her stories and her favorite 'ships. I'm surprised, but am also oddly fascinated, that people have time to care so deeply about television shows and characters.

Is my co-worker just plain crazy, or is this a popular hobby? This is apparently a real couple. Who is more disturbed? Who is more talented?

Who will win an Oscar first? Not as great as some of the previous ones, but a new Lauren Bacall High Point coffee commercial has shown up. For this one let's call it "Lauren in Love" she's not working--she's out waiting for a date or something. But to catalog the series we have: Lauren at Home "My favorite time of day is night" 2. Lauren on the way to the theatre as an audience member "Rushing for an 8 pm curtain" 3.

Lauren rehearsing a play "Around heah we don't like coffee we love it" 4. Lauren rehearsing a musical "Tension shows in your face" 5. Lauren writing "this page took four cups" 6. Lauren in love link below. Plus the impressions by others where they reenact the commercial. Are there any others? Who is good at deconstructing these short film masterworks? Its called EquaityMaine and they are very good. They raise tons and tons of money and have huge sponsorships. We have a "Equality Center" here in town and the people who run the organization are good people.

But that said, the organization's chief message seems to be aimed only at youngish or the very fringe trans people. Many say they come here because our state healthcare covers their hormone therapy. They hold massive events each year. One was last night called the Great Pumpkin Ball. Me and my girlfriend and another couple decided to go and bought tickets a month ago.

They are not cheap. EqualityMaine likes to keep huge coffers. But as always, the event featured drag queens from Ru Paul's drag race and of course it was flowing with the celebratory trans community. Gays and lesbians also, but most gay events here, like our huge pride week celebration skews toward trans celebration and how that community has much more to overcome than the rest of us.

Im not complaining about trans people but about the fact that gay and lesbian people seem to get lost in all the work organizations like this do. We lesbians and gay men still have issues we are facing. We too need help with our small business or finding jobs or need family law help. But this organization which is funded so well because all of these big companies think they're helping the gay and lesbian communities around Maine, as well as trans, are really only funding local and state political campaigns and events focused solely on the trans community.

Is it wrong I'm sort of bitter over this? Let me be the bell-ringing, banner-waving representative of generations of women who have been in the movie business and have gotten no recognition. I can't think of anything worse than being stabbed with a knife. I had to give a boyfriend a shot once, and I nearly fainted. Just the idea of breaking skin with a sharp object freaks me out. Have any of you been stabbed with a knife? What does it feel like?

I'd imagine you're so in shock that you don't feel anything right away. I had a friend who was stabbed 20 times by a guy who broke into his house and he said it was horrible. The chart at the link and got a brain freeze.

Does anyone outside of a uni actually try this on? German police have arrested eight people, including seven Syrian refugees and a German citizen, over their suspected involvement in a group sexual assault on a year-old woman in the city of Freiburg.

The incident took place on the night of October 14 but the police only issued a detailed report on the matter after all major suspects were detained. The victim, whose identity has not been revealed, attended a disco party at one of the local clubs, where she became acquainted with a Syrian asylum seeker, the police said in a statement. I haven't shaved my pubes or ass in months and I'm starting to like it. I feel very mannish looking at myself naked in the mirror.

Lisa Hartman was everywhere in the 80s with Tabatha, Knots Landing, a recording career, modeling, dating Paul Stanley, eventually settling down with Clint Black. Maggie Smith is the only one who comes to my mind Angela Lansbury and Judi Dench supposedly both had some work done. This article will have spoilers for shows and movies that you should have already seen by now, so get over it. The guys are smoking hot.

Rough and tumble, with a swarthily handsome look. On that "My American Gypsy Wedding" show, the guys are all sexy. Since they all get married at 16, I'm assuming that they are groomed to be straight. But I have to wonder if they ever dabble with other guys? Are there any celebrities' family connections that you didn't know and was genuinely surprised of?

I downloaded her Greatest Hits album last week and now I'm officially obsessed with her. But being a Euro Millennial I know practically nothing about her so you'll have to fill me in: Are there any of her movies worth checking out?

And lesser known jewels hidden amongst her discography? What was she like in real life - nice or a crazy diva? Hollywood has been criticised for giving LGBT roles to straight actors and earlier this year Scarlett Johansson pulled out of playing a trans character following a backlash. The Australian actress disagrees with the idea that a performer only really knows a character if they have shared experiences. When Scarlett Johansson was announced as the lead actor in a film about s Pittsburgh crime boss Dante "Tex" Gill, who was born Jean Gill, some said it showed the limited opportunities given to transgender actors.

Pointing to other actors who've played trans roles, Johansson said of her critics: Trace Lysette, who stars in the Amazon series Transparent, said it was representative of a wider problem in Hollywood. Cisgender describes someone who is not transgender. It applies to an individual whose gender matches their "assigned" sex at birth. In her second statement announcing she'd no longer be playing the role, Johansson said she'd "learned a lot" from the trans community and was glad there had been a "larger conversation about diversity and representation in film".

Sir Ian McKellen is an actor who's been critical of Hollywood's attitude to gay actors in the past. He's pointed out that no openly gay man has ever won the Academy Award for best actor, but straight actors have taken home the prize for playing LGBT roles.

He's already in his 30s, Italian, but he goes home at least three or four times. Granted, Sunday is a given, since I get that it's his extended family day, but throughout the week he will drop whatever he is doing, answer all her calls, and go over to check up on her.

In exchange, she gives him huge tupperwares of food and leftovers. I joked with him that I would go crazy if I had to see my mother that often, and he took offense and we got into a huge spat about this. Personally, I don't think it's that healthy for a man to be so attached to family. He thinks I'm the flawed one. Under the "You are at home" plan, they would have received benefits if they applied for refugee status and stayed in the country's two southernmost states.

ARRIAGA, Mexico — Several thousand Central American migrants turned down a Mexican offer of benefits if they applied for refugee status and stayed in the country's two southernmost states, vowing to set out before dawn Saturday to continue their long trek toward the U.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto announced what he called the "You are at home" plan, offering shelter, medical attention, schooling and jobs to Central Americans in Chiapas and Oaxaca states if they applied, calling it a first step toward permanent refugee status. Authorities said more than 1, had already applied for refugee status. But after one of the caravan's longest days of walking and hanging from passing trucks, the bulk of the migrants were boisterous Friday evening in their refusal to accept anything less than safe passage to the U.

Sister Act turns 25 today. I was 8 when this movie came out and I remember loving, I still some times watch it if TBS is rerunning it for the billionth time. The original screenplay was written for Bette Midler who eventually turned it down and later admitted to regretting doing so The screenplay was rewritten by various writers including Carrie Fisher Whoopi did not enjoy filming the movie due the constant rewrites.

Much of the script wasn't film-able when production started. Whoopi was so unhappy with the way Disney handled production she refused to promote the film. Bill Nunn's character of Eddie was originally supposed to have a bigger role and be Dolores love interest but it was cut. Lauren Holly was originally considered for the role of Sr. Mary Robert but producers felt Wendy Makkena looked more innocent.

Maggie Smith called the two films "pay the rent" work. Kathy Najimy based the character of Sr. That made Goldberg the highest paid actress in Hollywood for a short period of time. Whoopi turned down a third movie several times throughout the 90s and early 00s. Is there anything worse than this one for deal dash?

It goes through me like a knife. Will a Democrat be able to win the governorship? So they purged over , names most minorities. Her breezy adventuress heroines are great.

Two coworkers are the absolute loudest in the office, and they sit next to each other. But even worse is that they both LOVE to use speakerphone.

These two have even had dueling conference calls on speakerphone that are so loud, the conversations intermingled. That and the biggest offender of the two will call people that sit fifteen feet away to talk to them, even though we're in one gigantic room. So you get to hear him, the person he called speaking into their phone, and their voice coming out of his speakerphone. I don't think we've ever done the stylings of A.

Is she deliberately distancing herself from this schlock. We should have all been protesting in the streets that capitalist financial structures and policies made us lose all our money, jobs, savings. Instead Obama promised us everything will get better.

Salaries stagnated while prices rose. The price of an education is going through the roof. People are desperate to find another solution, so now they are turning rightward because of vacuous promises being made by the right wing. Trump promised us jobs and cheap healthcare. Of course none of that will happen. Capitalism sent your jobs to cheaper places around the world.

Style of cuisine doesn't matter but a true New York atmosphere does. In this version, Lizzie will be having an affair with the family maid played by DL fave Kristen Stewart.

What do we think? A few weeks ago, I was having a conversation with a very nice young man at a gas station. He was driving this beautiful, classic Mustang.

The car had a Trump sticker, so I mentioned that I had actually expected to see a much older person exiting the car, due to the sticker, and because the car was so old, even though it was spotless and obviously well maintained. So the kid started really talking to me. He told me that he himself, was a born again Christian. He told me that he found the Lord when he was a child, and that his grandparents had raised him, and he still lived with his grandmother. He went on to tell me that he was praying that God would put a man who truly followed the word of Christ, in the White House, and that he had faith that God would.

He said he would, and he then added: Christians in America have forgotten the values of their savior, and His teachings. Unfortunately, they have bought into a way that is not of Jesus, or of God. I have read the entire bible at least twice, so I know, as do they. You are not supporting a man that Jesus would want as your president. Trump, and he would tell you all, to behold a man who is evil.

For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. Enjoyed the World Cup threads?

You get the drill. Matches, transfer intrigue, dressing room drama, etc. The meaningless but lucrative summer games are winding down and we get down to the business of matches that matter.

I've been reading all the old soap threads and wanted to start one that just lists the gossip I've heard about this show. I'm gonna start a list. Lucci and SMG didn't get along 2. James Scott purposefully flirted with, and led on, a closeted Michael E. Knight to advance his screen time and story. James Kiberd and Kate Collins hated each other in real life 5. Michael Nader had a major drug problem towards the end of his time there.

People still like to shop in actual brick and mortar places. Going to the mall is still a thing. So why is Sears in bankruptcy and JCPenney and other big name retailers in trouble? Earlier Friday, authorities intercepted suspicious packages intended for Sen.

This was the most awkward, cluttered, non-cohesive mess of a show! It as all over the map, from one of those painfully awkward interviews via satellite with a family who overcame some tragedy and the interviewees have nothing much to say , a rushed cooking segment with Carla Hall love her , a rap star guest at least that's what I think he was , and a very large fat dude with a high voice singing some song where the only lyric repeated over and over and over was something like "everybody feel good Very curious if some of you have died.

It's alright if you have. I'd love to hear your experiences if you're comfortable enough to share them. Shows like Game of Thrones and Westworld enjoy a certain freedom that comes with being housed on HBO, pushing the boundaries with explicit sex scenes that will make the more reserved blush.

And while the final product looks seamless on screen, the road to get there can often be quite awkward and uncomfortable due to the level of intimacy and trust required to create these sensitive scenes. It's even more complicated when you consider that many of these sex scenes feature little to no direction and actors are often asked to just "go for it.

In the wake of the MeToo movement, HBO is doing its part to foster a comfortable working environment for its actors as they perform these intimate scenes. That's thanks to The Deuce actress Emily Meade, who advocated to bring in an intimacy coordinator to help facilitate her explicit love scenes on the retro series.

Now, HBO requires intimacy coordinators for all their shows and films featuring sex scenes, Rolling Stone reports. The inclusion of an intimacy coordinator on the set of The Deuce has already been felt by Meade, who plays the porn star Lori. In the spring, when the actress was instructed to simulate oral sex on screen, something she had never done before, the show's intimacy coordinator, Alicia Rodis, was on hand to alleviate any discomfort and act as a personal advocate, providing knee pads, mouth spray and flavored lubricant, and relaying any of her concerns with the director.

Or tell a story with their movements? If your set doesn't have an intimacy coordinator, at best, you might not be able to tell the story you wanted to tell. At worst, you have actors who are being physically assaulted. After consulting with a bevy of professionals, including sex workers and psychologists, and listening to harrowing stories from actors and crew, Rodis took these concerns to heart and has worked to improve the way that sex scenes are filmed.

More than just ensuring that an actor is physically comfortable during a scene, Rodis works as the middle person between an actor and a director so that everyone is comfortable with what is being asked of the actors and ensuring that everyone is on the same page. And I'm also here for the producers, to make sure that they know they're doing their best to make sure the set is safe," added Rodis, who also acts as an intimacy coordinator on the set of Crashing, the Watchmen adaptation and upcoming Deadwood film.

Donald Trump is our president. Now, tell me we don't need this — that we don't have a culture that needs to still be changed. The culture has already begun to change, thanks to Rodis' work. HBO's policy to staff intimacy coordinators for all shows and films is a great step in the right direction, and The Deuce showrunner David Simon also already stated that he would never work without one again.

Hopefully more networks and producers will follow suit. I would suggest if the Dem's do somehow regain control of the House and Senate, now is the time to do away with the electoral college. It wouldn't be a bad idea to rid ourselves of the Senate too. The Senate is nothing more than a bridal to the House of Rep's.

After doing this then they should consider impeaching old hepatitis-skinned Trump. The weirdest thing just happened. I was at a gay bar and a mannish woman made a pass at me. I did not know what to do.

I ignored her, was i supposed to pretend she was a man? Any tool or service can be misused. We can't take such risk without jeopardizing all our other services, so we are regretfully taking craigslist personals offline. Hopefully we can bring them back some day. To the millions of spouses, partners, and couples who met through craigslist, we wish you every happiness! When I was a kid I heard others say stuff like "he's spoiled" occasionally.

I guess it was because I was an only child and the fact I had a major melt down inside a toy store because my mom didn't want to buy me a princess leia doll that I insisted she buy for me. Who do you think has licked a dick or two? I recently woke up with it for the first time ever. I fell into the wall on the way to the bathroom then puked and had the most godawful spins til the Dramamine kicked in.

Thank you sweet baby Jesus for Dramamine. My bff is a nurse and she told me to do the Epley maneuver and that shit works. I'm not sure why I had it but I've got some ideas based on what I've read. Don't have insurance so I didn't go to the doc. It's gone but I still can't move too fast. Anyone else have it? I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Well, maybe that cunt Kim H from high school So many of you start multiple threads about your pill-popping, your pharmaceuticals, your drinking, your 'copious amounts of pot.

I hate media depiction of junkies as a dramatic device in TV shows and films. I don't care at all about them. Tell me everything about Zeb Atlas. He past as a competitive bodybuilder, his enourmous proportions, his present as a porn actor and everything about him.

Ann Romano pretty much takes the cake for me - Franklin's inept performance and limited skills molded a cheesy character into something monstrous, false and endlessly irritating. I suppose there's something weirdly appropriate about the cheesy Romano being grating. Special award points for anyone remembering him goes to the execrable Crazy Guggenheim Frank Fontaine turning up on Jackie Gleason.

Now THAT was irritating. Some of the biggest stars in music are sexual predators and pedophiles. Most don't even deny it. Some even wrote songs about it. How come most of the alumni didn't go on to bigger and better things?

Who knows anything about them? I'd love to know how Brayden, Tom, Marc and Dawson make their living and anything about them. I need a little pick-me-up. My dating ratio is Guys keep playing me time and time again.. Last night I went out to a Halloween Party and I saw my ex with my other ex before him and they laughed at me. I hate my life honestly.

Oh yes, dying your hair when it is pitch black and letting the roots show. The tragedy in Yemen is the result of foreign military intervention in the internal affairs of that country. Thousands of innocent civilians have been killed and millions more are at risk as starvation and cholera rage. We are told that US foreign policy should reflect American values.

So how can Washington support Saudi Arabia — a tyrannical state with one of the worst human rights record on earth — as it commits by what any measure is a genocide against the Yemeni people?

The UN undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs warned just last week that Yemen faces "the largest famine the world has seen for many decades with millions of victims. I was going down a Bowie rabbit hole, and found this link.

A video of a televised concert is at the bottom. I can't believe how unprofessional, disjointed, and sloppy a performance it is, but that is what I think is great about it. It has some spontaneity, whereas something like that now would be produced and choreographed to within an inch of its life. I had tickets to see him at the Cape Cod Coliseum shortly after this event was filmed -- it was in support of Diamond Dogs -- but they cancelled the show the morning of the performance because the stage wouldn't fit in the arena.

That, of course, led me to be completely disappointed, wondering what kind of elaborate show I missed. Anyway, I thought this might be amusing for other Bowie fans out there.

I believe that television shows are not a forum for expressing personal religious, social or political views. However, I have not objected when fellow performers have worn red poppy to express their support for war veterans; that's their choice.

My choice is NOT to wear a poppy. Readers should know wearing a red poppy is no longer entirely voluntary. Those who began by offering poppys to performers now resort to extreme tactics in pursuit of their express goal of percent conformity. When performers arrive, individuals who attempt to pin poppys on them accost them.

A performer who declines may be accosted at the pre-show, again while waiting backstage and after the show. Offering these poppys to celebrities was, in my view, a benign and pro-social act. On the other hand, aggressively badgering performers to compel the wearing of poppys is no only demeaning to war veterans and to the desperate need of continued support, but an offense against personal freedom. By attempting to force percent conformity, these activists are now attempting to make the red poppy a visible litmus test for separating those individuals who empathize with war veterans from those who do not.

This is a misguided and dangerous notion. First, it misguidedly politicizes human tragedy. These red poppys provide a means by which public figures can appear to make a 'politically correct' statement in favor of a cause they do not support. Second, any attempt to force conformity to a single social agenda attacks the freedom of expression. The extreme activities that resort to harassment to compel actors and actresses to wear these poppys are practicing a '90s brand of McCarthyism — and their behavior is deplorable.

Our community was devastated by political extremists in the s and again became a target during the last presidential campaign. It surpasses belief that men and women in the entertainment field would resort to shameful practices that the enemies of artistic freedom have used against us. Sadly, it falls to some of us who ardently support war veterans and programs to resist these tactics by personal example.

Believe me, the easy way out would be to pin the poppy on and keep silent. But I won't, because I don't want these appalling tactics to succeed. Somebody might want to tell them how the internet works. We don't really care. They do suck though. Our advice is that you should not click on the link and whatever you do, don't read their truly terrible articles. Would anything be missed other than the Handmaid's Tale?

What's a good style? I don't want anything too frilly or dainty that has spindly legs, no sectionals, and I don't want to spend too much. I'm not fond of all leather either except in a few cases. I just get the feeling this guy is gay or bisexual. Well that and he drew a dick cumming on him on his instagram story A new dating show is coming to town and we can only hope it's going to be as refreshing as it sounds.

While dating shows on TV are always drama filled and generally fun to watch, they also tend to focus almost exclusively on dating between straight people. The Bi Life will be the title of the new dating show on E! Up until now, bisexual representation on dating shows has been rare — apart from the occasional bisexual contestant on mainstream dating shows.

Only a few modern dating shows have been centred around bisexual dating, an example being MTV's reality dating show A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila, where both men and women competed to date the bisexual television personality. Earlier this year Australia got its first bisexual dating show What's your Flava?

New pilot based on an old idea by Gerry Anderson, produced by his son. Better off with wires? It's kind of strange to see them running about and making all those facial expressions The CW announced Tuesday that they cast Rose to play Batwoman in an upcoming series that will feature the first lesbian superhero in a lead role, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The year-old actor confirmed on Instagram, saying, "The Bat is out of the bag and I am beyond thrilled and honored. I'm not a guy; I don't really feel like a woman, but obviously I was born one. So, I'm somewhere in the middle, which — in my perfect imagination — is like having the best of both sexes. I have a lot of characteristics that would normally be present in a guy and then less that would be present in a woman.

But then sometimes I'll put on a skirt — like today. When was the last decade that had SO MANY successful singer-songwriter chicks on the charts that didn't have to take their clothes off to get attention? There was a huge feminist resurgence in the s.

I still remember Paula Cole's hairy armpits performing at the Grammys. A teacher from California who is the wife of a US Army Lt Col has been arrested and charged with incest after a pupil recognized the teacher as appearing in a video on a porn website. The student noticed the youngster in the clip as being a classmate and as underage female family member. The teacher, who is a mother-of-two, Dawn Giannini, 49, from Palo Alto remains in custody while the investigation continues. They then alerted the school's principal, who called police, which resulted in Giannini's arrest.

What's the deal on them? Anyone on here worked behind the scenes in the porn industry? Love to hear from you. Why is it so unfriendly and cliquish? I feel like I'm back in high school since I've started working there. Anyone else have similar experiences? Like a fascist, they are all excited like I can help you here! This has happened three times in just a few weeks so this time I just started yelling at them and making a scene.

I can wait for fucking 20 seconds. I am not gonna be dead in the next few minutes. This white cuntfrau in front of me was all shocked. So I just glared at her. When the young lil immigrant served me I told him: I will not be civil when they are never to me. He was all apologetic, like I give a fuck what he thinks.

I have decided to always treat them like the lepers they are. Feel free to discuss other British shows besides murder mysteries. I just found out I have tongue cancer. They will have to remove almost half my tongue, and reconstruct it using an artery from my forearm, and a skin graft from my leg.

I will have to breath through a tracheotomy for a few weeks, and eat through a feeing tube in my chest for at least 45 days. I may or may need need radiation. I will be in the hospital for five days.

Fortunately, my insurance will cover all but the deductible, and the success rate is high. I do not have anyone who is dependent on me, do not have many close friends, and my presence is really not required here. I hate to burst everyone's bubble including my own, but Trumps support from Deplorables and Republicans has been steadily going up. Democrats are notorious for bitching about things all years but then not showing up to the polls during the midterms.

Repugs are avid voters and get in line when push comes to shove. I have yet to talk to anyone who voted for Trump to say they regret it. The ones I know feel he is being picked on and have turned him into the under dog in their mind. They are even more revved up to support him then they did during the campaign. It was actually a tribute to Robert Guillaume.

His crime is especially heinous because he killed his two daughters, and unborn son, but killing the pregnant wife is equally heinous. You know the type.
