Apr 16 Mindymoo commented on I Sat In on My Son’s Sex-Ed Class, and I Was Shocked by What I Heard.
When I had sex ed back in 2001, I heard horror stories about the girl who had sex for the first time, used a condom, yet was impregnated with twins and contracted HIV. I learned that condoms almost always fail, as does the pill, and that you may as well use nothing. Gay people? We don't exist. I trolled the teacher a couple of times, asking her about the female orgasm and what the fluid was when women ejaculate, "learning" that it is impossible for women to ejaculate. Basically, I was taught that sex is evil, disgusting and awful, and you should only share it with the person you love and are married to. And no wonder my school was full of teen moms.

I had people in high school tell me that dinosaur bones were nothing but re-arranged elephant skeletons. Dino-deniers are nuts.
Feb 9 Mindymoo commented on Florida Representative Wants to Throw Trans People in Prison for Using Public Toilets.
Oh, and if this law is passed, are they going to start policing gay and lesbian bars, places that are typically safe havens for trans people? Arresting them for using the bathroom at a place that they are supposed to feel comfortable at? This is such bullshit.

If we "choose" to use the restroom, then that's it. I'm just going to stop peeing. Since it's a choice and all.
Dec 17, 2014 Mindymoo commented on "Rape Exceptionalism" and Protecting Law Students from "Triggers".
I'm with you, @28. I'm a feminist and a rape and sexual assault survivor, and I find this entire thing preposterous. I'm beginning to feel like people need a trigger warning for life itself these days. If the subject of rape law is that upsetting to you as a rape survivor, then you need to excuse yourself from school for awhile and get yourself into some counseling. Or find a new area of study entirely, while also getting yourself into some counseling.

Lowe's is now tinkering around with robot helpers to guide you to the aisle you need for your product in a couple of stores in California. If it's successful, that's even more people out of jobs, while spending a lot of cold, hard cash to build fucking robots.
Nov 18, 2014 Mindymoo commented on Grappling with Post-1970 Frank Zappa.
I personally love all Zappa, and he is my favorite musician and person of all time. His Mothers stuff is my favorite, but his solo work is amazing too. "Uncle Remus" off of "Apostrophe" is such a beautiful and amazing song. "Joe's Garage" is a brilliant album. His live work is incredible. His album "Broadway the Hard Way" is probably my favorite live album- it even has Sting show up, doing a very jazzy rendition of "Murder By Numbers", and it ends the album with the song "Jesus Thinks You're Jerk", with an impassioned plea for everyone in the audience to get out there and vote the bums out of office. All of his work- his commercial, his jazz, his classical- has such meaning, brilliance and beauty. He can be so irreverent, yet honest and biting at the same time. The man was a lyrical, musical, conceptual genius who died way too young. Just imagine if he were around today, and what he would be saying about our political climate, the apathy of young people, and the fact that we still have not come far enough in the minority struggles for rights and acceptance. People often dismissed him as a novelty songwriter for stuff like "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow", but so many of his songs were really deep. "We're Only In It for the Money" is full of really deep songs, and Uncle Remus is very deep as well.

At least there are still all of those tapes in the vault that Gayle and the kids keep releasing, so there is still "new" Zappa material coming out all of the time.

It blows my mind that Hick Life is only in second place. That monstrosity needs to be ejected from the stratosphere.

One of the women is Lucy from "Trailer Park Boys"? Jeesh. These poor women.
Oct 23, 2014 Mindymoo commented on Mormons Invite Us Into Their Underpants.
@22 It's personal for me too, to mock Mormons. My cousin, who is very emotionally and mentally disturbed, got sucked in by them. They married her off to a man after dating him for three months, and isolated her from the rest of her family. He was abusive to her, and the church had her go off of her medication. When she had a nervous breakdown and ended up in the psych ward, the elders of the church went there and fucking signed her out, against medical orders, saying they would care for her. It took her years to get out of that marriage and out of that cult. They preyed on my vulnerable, lonely, mentally disturbed, isolated cousin, and that is beyond fucked up to me.
