Firstly; gross (cats lick their ass holes all day)
Secondly: gross (mouth kissing is for lovers, not inter species friends).
Thirdly: gross (and I mean the song).
Also, this is like a two way miscommunication. The cat lady is anthropomorphising her cat so she imagines it's kissing her, and the cat is, well, I guess the word would be felinomorphising the cat lady's lips by imagining that they're cat mommy tits, so I guess they're exploiting one another. But gross.

Until we, as a society take full responsibility for every child and its development, (as opposed to leaving it up to the parents who, by the way don't need any qualifications to breed), and then leaving it up to the individual to take measures to be a better person all on their own, without guidance, there will continue to be damaged adults who go around raping, assaulting, and otherwise harming other people.
As long as we live in a "mind your own business" society, nasty human beings will develop.
As long as this is the case, we'll need to take measures to protect ourselves from these people who would do us harm.

@19. Like his commentary or not Arthur Ziffrelli is an institution within I anon. I, like many others, am a sucker for repetition, and I get a little down if an I Anon has no reference to COCAINE and MALT LIQUOR.
(I don't even know why - cause it means nothing. It just presses on my "haha wtf" button I guess).

@24. I didn't know 'sex positive' was about doing the same old shit (reminding women that men view them nothing but fuck things for their consumption).
The only people being liberated by your version of "sex positive" is you Fifty_two_eighty and his dick, (I only found out now that he's apparently a dude), not the women who are creeped out by it in the same way that we've been getting creeped out by it for centuries.
Most women know that when men remind us that we're seen as fuck objects that it is an age old tactic used to rob us of power, and remind us that anything we say is unlikely to be listened to.

What @3 (TVDinner) said.
It's great to see someone publicly admit being wrong - it happens too infrequently. I'm sure this statement will inspire and empower others in similar situations to do the same.
Bad judgements are often made under time pressure.
(Not that I had a position on her choice to give Shocked a platform in the first place).
It's good to be the kind of person who gives people second chances, even if they blow them, as Michelle apparently did.

I hope it was from natural causes and not rat poison.
Cats make for beautiful specimens, but @12 is right. If it were a human, this wouldn't be posted on Slog for it's novelty value. Domesticated animals, for many humans, have human status.
