carry on... and the case of the red-tailed hawk
Well it seems that blogger has decided not to censor adult blogs. I spent way too much time tinkering around on wordpress and trying to decide what, if anything, I should pay for in a new blog host and whether it was worth it especially as I've been a bit distracted and not a motivated blogger lately.
Often when I have some time to devote to writing a blog post, I get distracted and start just poking around the internet for fun. I have a curious mind, and sorry dear readers- many a night of uninterrupted private internet time in which I might write a spanking post gets consumed while reading about politics, or sports, or news, or science. Still though I can't help that part of my brain that devolves back to spanking.
I was reading not too long ago about the SAE's at OU and their infamous racist chant. I wasn't an SAE, but decades ago I heard that they had something similar they sang ("Abe Lincoln set 'em free..." is at least a bit better than "you can hang 'em from a tree" right?) I was equal parts aghast/horrified yet relieved because we had some not so nice traditional chants that would be disavowed by the national fraternity, but ours weren't nearly that bad! But this started an exploration of college current culture, which led me to The Chive, which led me to the pic above.... and walla- back to thoughts on spanking. Something about those drop-seat pajamas and those naughty lacy panties...
I missed blogging about the 50 Shades of Grey movie, but a spanking interest definitely made me click on an article called 50 Shades of Wrong on Wired. It's about insect sex, and fascinating/horrifying yet highly recommended reading. Imagine a man with testicles the size of turkeys, or 50 lbs of ejaculate, or not just eating out, but actually eating each other after your love was consummated. Insects do that. Still, it was the spanking-related title that got me to click on the fascinating story.
But here's the best/worst one...
Saw a story about schoolkids in New Hampshire who proposed that the Red-Tailed Hawk be named as the official state raptor.
They went on a field trip to watch the bill be debated. One of the legislators actually used the occasion to speak about abortion, saying the hawk grasps its prey “with its talons and then uses its razor-sharp beak to rip its victims to shreds, to basically tear it apart limb by limb, and I guess the shame about making this a state bird is it would serve as a much better mascot for Planned Parenthood.’’ Seriously. He said that-in front of schoolkids.
As I've said before- my political views are complex- I'm pro-life and think abortion is wrong. I think technology has progressed since Roe v. Wade and I'd be in favor of a well-crafted ban after x number of weeks (allowing a doctor's discretion and providing for the safety of the mother.) I also think the government should subsidize if not give out the morning after pill, and the Catholic Church's opposition to condoms in developing countries is one of the worst things the Church has done in their less-than-stellar history. Don't get me started on the story of Onan. But in my mind, a mixture of horrified/rolling my eyes/chuckling that the politician would actually say that... yet a part of me, the deep down sick part of me, thought... RED-TAILED Hawk? really?
Happy 1st day of Spring everyone!
