Sheldon Cooper:But you do bring up an interesting point. I don’t have to break new ground here, I’m sure much of the research already exists.
Leonard Hofstadter: No! no, my point is, if you want to learn how to make friends, then just go out to a coffee shop or a museum. Meet people. Talk to them. Take an interest in their lives.
Sheldon Cooper: That’s insane on the face of it. Come on.
Leonard Hofstadter: Where are we going?
Sheldon Cooper: You’re driving me to the mall. I’m going to acquire a book that summarizes the current theories in the field of friendmaking.

The Big Bang Theory The Friendship Algorithm 2009

This piece at Stacy McCain’s site concerning Emma Lindsay has really stuck with me:

She dated a series of boyfriends until she was in her mid-20s, at which point she decided she was actually bisexual, spent three years dating lesbians and, as she has said, convinced herself she was a victim of “the heteronormative brainwashing of society.” However, Ms. Lindsay’s lesbian relationships turned out the same way as her earlier relationships with men — i.e., failure — and, after a two-year romantic hiatus, she decided to subject herself once more to the insidious forces of patriarchy. What is her likelihood of heterosexual success, at age 32, if she always failed with men when she was younger? Or to look at it from a different angle, why would a man be interested in a woman who has not only been rejected by all her previous boyfriends, but has also been deemed an unsuitable partner by lesbians?

This latest shift seems about the desire for a child and has left her with a problem the quest is not going well because apparently the people she is meeting just aren’t as considerate as she is:

When I date people, I devote a lot of effort to making their lives better. When I’m with women, I read about health issues that effect lesbian demographics (higher rates of breast cancer, obesity, and depression.) When I’m with men, I read about health issues that effect straight men (coronary issues, blood pressure, and emotional issues esp. around anger.) When I date people of color, I research POC health/discrimination/etc. issues, especially issues around dating white people (mental/health effects of internalized racism, institutionalized racism, the types of micro-aggressions I may be likely to commit.) When I date people with less money, I pay for shit. When I date people who are messy, I organize their shit (even though I’m also really messy.) When I date people with physical limitations, I massage their shit (weird Emma past: I went to massage school.)

Her efforts have all come down to two choices in her quest for motherhood:

As far as I can tell, I have 2 options. Option 1 is “trapping” some guy into having kids with me because he lacks the self awareness to plan for it himself. This would also involve taking his last name, doing most of the housework while contributing 50% to the earnings, and faking my orgasms so he doesn’t have to feel emasculated by his lack of sexual prowess.

Option 2 is having kids by myself.

It would involve some sacrifices, like probably not living in San Francisco. However, every time I go on a date with some man-child, I become more and more convinced that those sacrifices are probably the less bad option.

Stacy sums up this conclusion here:

Her proposed “Option 2” — pay for donor sperm, “becoming a single mother by choice” — is a childish threat: “If you don’t play by my rules, I’m going to take my uterus and go home.” To which the world’s male population will generally react with a shrug of indifference.

“Damaged goods,” they’ll say, and if Emma Lindsay were an isolated exception, a lone kook howling at the moon, perhaps I’d shrug, too. Yet the fact is that Ms. Lindsay is part of a tide of human wreckage washing up on the shores of our sin-sick society, the flotsam and jetsam created by the disintegration of America’s formerly Christian culture.

While I agree this entire situation reeks of the disintegration of America’s Christian Culture I think Stacy is missing a key point concerning Miss Lindsay’s screed a consideration that is completely ignored in her calculations.

The good of her child.

You can look high and low, but in all her critiques of the various men she is considering none of said critiques include:  Would this man be a good father?  Would he put our child first?  Would this man be a good role model for our child?

Nor does she seem to be all that concerned about what she would bring to the table.  She talks about having to give up San Francisco and alludes to other unnamed sacrifices but nowhere is the realization that once you have children your life and your commitment belongs to them.  Their well-being, their education, feeding them, clothing them, steering them along the right path.  All of this considerations would seem to be job one.

Where is all her research on what makes a healthy and happy child who will grow up to be a responsible member of adult society?

In the days of my youth, these considerations went without saying, today with the sex act completely divorced from its actual function of procreation it seems her MIT education has not prepared her to ask this completely obvious question.

There is good news however for Miss Lindsay.  She has access to an excellent resource on this subject, as evidenced from an earlier piece of hers concerning the moment the general public discovered her writing:

Then, the day after, I got 75 thousand views, and I called my parents.

“Are you ok?” they asked, “How are the trolls? Are you getting trolled?” Then, “Why did you never tell us about this? You know you can tell us anything.”

She  has (or at least at the time of that writing did have) two parents who are apparently there for her.  I’d suggest sitting down with these parents and having a long talk with them on the subject.  They will almost certainly give the best advice they can on this decision and can do so with practical examples from both their and her own experiences.  And while I may or may not agree with what said advice might be, I’m certain it will flow from their unconditional love for their daughter.

Me I’d sum things up in two sentences:  The secret to a successful marriage is putting up with each other foibles during the 95% of the time when nothing too exciting (good or bad) is going on.

As for Parenthood; The secret to being a good parent is loving your child enough to be willing to enforce an unpleasant rule or speak an uncomfortable truth even when it hurts.

And as I’ve said before if you can’t spare the cash we will be happy to accept your prayers.

Yesterday we had the bad news, now the good news.

It’s finally official. After several false starts this Saturday Aug 5th my new religious themed show Your Prayer intentions premieres on WQPH 89.3 Shirley/Fitchburg.

It’s going to be a taped show so if you have prayer intentions that you wish to have prayed for you can either use the contact page here. or you can email me directly herehere

However we are going to celebrate the launch of the first local show on our EWTN station show with a special Mass at the old Madonna of the Holy Rosary Church on Theresa Street In Fitchburg at 10:30 on Saturday followed by a bit of Pizza to eat and the show itself.

Meanwhile the plans for our Buffet Books and Bather event with Robert Stacy McCain in Leominster are continuing and tickets are still available here at Eventbrite.

And my on hand supply of my book has dwindled so much that I’ve had to order another case to accommodate people who want it and with the Madonna of the Holy Rosary Event this weekend and Madonna Della Cava next week I wouldn’t be surprised if I need another case before Stacy McCain gets here.

Of course it will take me selling 200 cases to replace a years pay, but if your nowhere near me I’ll be happy to have you order a copy from amazon here.

If you want an autographed copy, from me the Cost is $10 That covers both the book and the $2.63 it costs me to mail it at the book rate.

There are all good signs and show promise but the thing that is really going to make a difference is if the Layoff Bleg ends successfully, you can go here to see how we’re doing or kick in below.




Of course if you want an autographed copy of my book you can have one with your subscription to the site and in addition to the book you will get my weekly podcast emailed to you before it appears either on the site or at the 405media which graciously carries it.

Now if I could secure 100 new subscribers at $25 a month I can devote myself full time to the blog, the new radio show and a pair of book projects that I’d like to move forward on.

But all that’s up to you.

I spoke to Sr. John Dominic Rasmussen of the Dominican Sisters of Mary at the Catholic Marketing Network

She was a tough interview to get, everyone seemed to want to speak with her, finally I had to pack up my equipment and go to her booth to get the job done.

I loved what I saw here not just the cute animated videos of Sister…

1: Why Educate in Virtue? from Dominican Sisters of Mary on Vimeo.

(it’s odd to see Sr. animated but trust me she is just as animated in person)

…but pages on the individual virtues like Modesty

MODESTY
MEANING

  • Purity of heart in action, especially in regards to dress and speech

LOOKS LIKE

  • Dressing in an appropriate manner
  • Dressing in private
  • Not bragging about talents, achievements etc.
  • Not being eager to talk about yourself
  • Not trying to be the center of attention in word or action

SOUNDS LIKE

  • I will wear this skirt because it isn’t too short or too tight.
  • I need some privacy.
  • Silence

and Circumspection

CIRCUMSPECTION

MEANING

  • Careful consideration of circumstances and consequences

LOOKS LIKE

  • Pausing to think
  • Thinking before acting
  • Praying before acting
  • Asking for advice from an older, trusted person

SOUNDS LIKE

  • I should wait before I respond.
  • Let me think about that.
  • Jesus, help me to do what you would do.
  • May I ask you for advice about something?
  • Let me think about what I should do.

By an odd coincidence just a few minutes after I published my youtube interview with Sr. I saw linked at Stacy McCain’s website this PJ Media story about the education that Planned Parenthood wants to deliver instead:

Planned Parenthood thinks your child needs to know about transgenderism and masturbation at the tender age of three. The Daily Wire reports:

In new guidelines  issued on the official Planned Parenthood website, the  federally subsidized corporation explains how parents should talk to their pre-schoolers about gender roles, sexuality, masturbation, and transgenderism, even offering tips on how to tell if your toddler “is transgender or gender nonconforming.”

Advice from the guidelines includes:

Be mindful of how you talk around your kid, too. Talking to (or in front of) your daughter about growing up and having boyfriends or marrying a man (and vice versa) sends the message that girls are supposed to like boys, and boys are supposed to like girls, and that anything else is wrong or not normal. While kids this young don’t know their sexual orientation yet, assuming they’re straight could make them sacred to come to you or feel bad about themselves later. This can lead to mental health issues, unhealthy relationships, and taking more health risks when they reach their teenage years.

So, along with freaking parents out over potentially triggering a mental illness in their child, Planned Parenthood provides the litmus test for determining whether or not your child is transgender.

The most frightening words from that piece are “Federally Funded”.

Stacy McCain sums it up pretty well

Amazingly the same people who insist that removing federal funding from Planned Parenthood’s attempts to teaching 4 year olds about Masturbation and transgenderism is a sign of hate would scream bloody murder at the thought of the Federal government funding Sr. John Dominic’s Education in Virtue curriculum.

So I ask the obvious question? If you are a parent Which program would you want your young child to be in so they would grow up to be a responsible and sensible adult?

The Great McCain wades into the “logic” of using an epithet for homosexuals as an insult against a heterosexual—and the weirdness of the uproar.

If I wanted to insult Stephen Colbert, I might have called him a lot of things, but “c**k holster” probably wouldn’t have come to mind. By the standards of Stephen Colbert, however, there are no standards, so I can call him any slang synonym for homosexual and still hope to get a network TV contract.

Alas, my phone isn’t blowing up with return calls from CBS executives, which probably means you won’t see “The Stacy McCain Gay Joke Show” on their fall schedule. And I had so much material ready . . .

Being almost as notoriously heterosexual as President Trump, I wouldn’t be much offended at being targeted by an anti-gay slur. It’s an odd thing about what are commonly called “homophobic” insults: Who’s insulted?

If you’re not actually gay, why would someone call you a f*ggot? Is he trying to start a fight? Aren’t anti-gay insults, when aimed at a target who is not even suspected of homosexuality, just a way of saying, “I don’t like you”?

OK, you don’t like me, so you call me a f*ggot. And then what?

How am I expected to react to this non sequitur? Call the Civility Police and report you for violating the law against homophobia? (…)

Barry Manilow recently announced his homosexuality. Has Stephen Colbert called the legendary pop balladeer a “c**k holster” yet? Has Colbert said anything similar about Elton John? Was Colbert making gay jokes when George Michael died? Have I somehow overlooked Colbert’s history of remarks indicating his negative opinion of homosexuality? If we don’t have any reason to believe Colbert is anti-gay, then why the social-media uproar about his alleged expression of “homophobia”?

Emphasis mine.

It’s simple. Left-leaning sorts like Stephen Colbert:

  1. May use any slurs, whether racial, sexual, or any other type. It’s almost like a driver’s license.
  2. Believe that Republicans hate homosexuals and, therefore, believe that they would be angry at being called one.

(I remember that this was a perennial Twitter “insult” tossed at the late Andrew Breitbart—the biological father of four children. President Trump has five children.)

It is, simply, “I don’t like you”—an example of using whatever verbal weapon one thinks the target would like least. It’s the higher primate version of chimpanzee poo-flinging.

For the record, I couldn’t care less if Colbert keeps his show or gets the axe. It’s still somewhat of a free country and I’ll keep exercising the freedom to miss his show.

All of Me 1984

One thing about the Trump Tax story that’s actually more interesting than the left going from:

 Trump is keeping his tax returns from the Public because it will hurt him

to

Trump tricked us into releasing his tax return to the public because it will help him

Is  this question being asked by Allahpundit:’

Maddow’s fans idolize her as a smart liberal with a supposedly foolproof bullsh*t detector — yet here she was last night not only bullsh*tting them at length about the news value of the returns but quite possibly doing so as an unwitting pawn in a limited hangout by the Trump White House. She got suckered by someone, maybe the Republican president himself, which is something that should never, ever happen to MSNBC’s liberal eggheads. It’s sufficiently bad for her brand that it’s hard to imagine how she could have rationalized one night of mega-ratings as being worth the letdown and loss of faith in her judgment that she’d suffer among her regular fans. So I ask again: Why the ridiculous hype? I can’t figure it out.

which is even more cogent given this excellent point

by the time she finally got into the details of the 1040, it was Geraldo and the Al Capone vault all over again. Which brings us back to the question: Why? Why make viewers wait with bated breath for something you know can only disappoint them?

John Ziegler’s explanation is that hype is usually inversely proportional to actual news value. That is, it’s because Maddow knew she had nothing that she had to draw out the suspense. If there was anything truly juicy in the return, he reasons, don’t you think it would have been revealed by NBC’s hard news division, most likely Lester Holt’s program, instead of by Maddow during the 9 p.m. hour of liberal power?

So the questions on the floor are:

Why did Maddow push this?

Why are MSNBC and the rest of the press are still pushing it‘?

The Answer is as Stacy McCain alludes to is:  this is what the liberal rubes want.

After finally “reporting” the numbers, Maddow then filled the extra time with a lot of blabber — wild speculation about what sinister secrets might be hidden behind those opaque numbers. She suggested there could be debts owed to shady foreign entities (Russians, nudge, nudge, wink, wink) who could thereby influence Trump’s policies. While it is of course possible that such things could be true, speculation is not news, or else I could win a Pulitzer Prize for my seven-part series speculating that Rachel Maddow could be having a secret affair with Mika Brzezinski. Because, hey, why not?

The circular logic of Maddow’s “investigative journalism”:

  1. Donald Trump is a Republican;
  2. Republicans are evil;
    therefore
  3. Somewhere, there must be evidence of how evil Trump is.

Really, that’s all she’s got — a belief in Trump’s evil, which permits her (and every other liberal journalist) to constantly locate mountainous “scandals” where anyone with common sense sees only a molehill. Ever since Hillary lost the election, the media have been dogpiling every possible variation on the Russians-hacked-the-election conspiracy theory, because that’s what their core audience of disappointed Democrat voters want to believe. [emphasis mine]

Remember we’ve seen this before, when the Target was Michelle Bachmann

For many months we’re heard about Bachmann “scandals” that have been ready to break .

With a left dying to beat her and a media scoffing at and hating her it would be only a matter of time before the chickens would come home to roost.

Bull.

You have an IRS that was leaking tax information to the left, you have an AG going after Fox news reporters and their families, you had a press united in their disdain for the congresswoman and you think if there was some there there we would not have seen some actual meat out there?

And of course there was Fitzmas, when the entire left was convinced that prosecutor was just a step away from indicting Karl Rove, who would lead to Dick Cheney and maybe even George W. Bush.  Do you remember the anticipation, the jokes on late night and all that?  Stacy McCain did

For the love of God, have we forgotten “Fitzmas,” the 2005 rumor that special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald’s federal grand jury was about to indict Rove or Cheney or both? Who could ever forget the ridiculous farce of “investigative journalist” Scott Leopold “reporting” in May 2006 that Rove had been indicted?

And most importantly how it ended for them

05.10.25.BlueFitzmas-X

Stacy again

All of that ridiculous “PlameGate” nonsense was taken very seriously by the mainstream media, as though it were a real scandal that might implicate the president in High Crimes and Misdemeanors, and yet it was transparently absurd from start to finish.

That sounds really familiar doesn’t it, Trump Russia, Trump and Taxes, Trump and Bannon, etc etc etc the MSM keeps pushing this stuff, not because they believe it but because they know their customer base on the left does and will keep believing, and even if They’re burned

They just keep grabbing the next one.

You see liberalism is a religion and Their primary belief is that Conservatives/Republicans are the focus of evil in the world and we’re only one leak or investigation away from them being exposed forever.

That’s why this 2nd tweet from Ali is evergreen

Just substitute Bush, or Cheney, or Rove, or Palin, or Bachmann, and that tweet would be true in the past. We can put Conway or Bannon instead or (or along with) Trump and that sentence still works. And someday and someday in the future those names will be replaced by Republicans we’ve never heard of.

But the Democrats will still be the same and the MSM and the professional left will be there to play them, just as Ironically Buzzfeed reports that even Brett Kimberlin is back to play the rubes. Yeah Kimberlin is a bomber, a con man, a violent mendacious serial litigator but he’s not so stupid as not to recognize an easy mark when he sees them.

This is religion for the left and they’ll keep believing no matter what reality says to the contrary and if it doesn’t pan out they’ll wipe away their memory of their last failure just like Wikipedia wiped away Fitzmas removing its entry & redirecting it down the memory hole and grasp the next “scandal”.

I’ll give the last word to Peter Cook and Rowan Atkinson who demonstrate here

that Monty Python isn’t the only British comedy that the left has mistakenly decided was actually a guide to life.

All the President’s Men 1976

Old friend Tom Bowler from Libertarian leanings who was once a regular on my old radio show sent over this post a few days ago that got to the heart of the Russia/Special prosecutor line of the left:

Democrats would once again like to execute from the Comey-Fitzgerald playbook. As with the case of I. Lewis Libby, there is no underlying crime to investigate, only a lot of partisan hyperventilation about ordinary and proper contacts, such as those between then Senator Jeff Sessions and the Russian ambassador. The element of intrigue is introduced only by the ridiculous and farfetched story that Russia interfered in the November election in order to help Donald Trump become president, and that the Trump campaign colluded with them. That fantasy hangs on because without it there is no rationale for conducting an investigation, and Democrats are desperate to investigate.

They are not really after Attorney General Sessions, though they would welcome his forced resignation if they could get it. They want Trump.

After debunking the Russia hacking story Tom talks about the real reason why the left is so zealous here.

I thought of Thomas’ post when I saw the ending of Robert Stacy McCain’s latest:

…feminists spent a couple of years insisting that every college boy who so much as hinted at an interest in heterosexual activity on campus was a potential rapist. “Consent training” became a mandatory part of freshman orientation, and “affirmative consent” laws were imposed, shifting the burden of proof from the accuser to the accused.

Here in 2017, however, when campus rape cases make headlines, we await the feminist reaction and . . . Nothing. Silence. Crickets chirping.

For some reason, feminists haven’t said a word about Jonathan Henry-Walker or Kishawn Holmes. Nor have I noticed feminists commenting on the brutal attack against Priyanka Kumari, or the rape and kidnapping charges against Evan Xavier Little, or Oliver Funes-Machado, who decapitated his own mother, or Henry Jose Garcia who allegedly raped a girl from the time she was 11 until she was 15. All this violence against women, and yet feminists don’t seem to notice these crimes.

It’s almost as if there’s a pattern or something . . .

And both of these stories brought to mind this piece at of all places the Hollywood in toto about a documentary concerning race:

“People in the film business are afraid of it,” says Steele. ”I’m challenging the narrative at the table. It’s pissing people off.”

I Am, or How Jack Became Black” lets the filmmaker use his own biography to explore the impact racial politics are having on the nation. It’s a fair but withering look at a system that puts the emphasis on ethnicity, not the content of one’s character.

And Steele should know. He’s part black, part Jewish and deaf. His two children also have Latina ancestry from his ex-wife.

The film opens with Steele trying to figure out which box, or boxes, to check on his children’s school forms. Sound easy? Not so fast. How should he identify his own mixed-race children? And why can’t he simply opt out and let them simply be … Jack and June?

It’s a starting point for a serious, and seriously personal, examination of race in America.

What is the tie that binds these three stories together?  The secret comes from the final lines of the Hollywood in toto piece:

“Racism will never go away … that’s part of the human condition,” he says. “What makes today different … is that people make a living off of it. That’s a huge issue. Once you make a living off of race, what’s your motivation for it to go away?”

And that’s the key to the lock of this puzzle, as Tom put it when talking Trump’s goals

If he is successful, he will also have stripped much of the power from the party of big government

And big money from the Government for the left’s interest groups was the big reward of the Obama years as well as the potential reward if Hillary was elected.  And not just from taxpayers alone, after all what do you think the Justice department’s “settlements” that sent corporate cash to groups providing foot soldiers of the left was all about.  That’s why as Stacy put it the “rape epidemic” story was big during the end of the Obama years and in anticipation of a Clinton White house, but once both were over a different tack was made.

Readers will recall that feminists recently spent many months decrying an alleged “epidemic” of sexual assault at colleges and universities…Since last November’s election, however, we see that the focus of feminist activism shifted from the “campus rape epidemic” to organizing mass protests against the Trump administration. Does this mean that campus rape has ceased to be a priority for feminists? 

As we’ve already learned there is big money to be made in fighting Trump, the groups supporting a day without women for example had $246 million reasons to march and cry out.  It’s not about changing the world or social justice it’s to keep the checks coming that would explain this difference in attitude spotted by our filmmaker

You might think shooting “I Am” would leave Steele embittered about the state of American culture. Not even close.

“It made me much more positive, gave me more faith in the people,” he says. The strangers he met during the filmmaking journey proved more open-minded and fair than those showcased in press reports.

That’s because those strangers away from the camera who aren’t on the gravy train have no incentive to keep the scare up.  I’ll give Stacy the last word

Go check the Twitter feeds of Jessica Valenti, Laurie Penny, Amanda Marcotte and other prominent feminists and see if you get any sense of concern about the alleged “epidemic” of college girls being sexual assaulted. It’s as if the whole thing instantly evaporated just about the time the networks called Pennsylvania for Trump on Election Night.

Near the end of the 2nd day of DaTechGuy’s midnight court I spoke to Caleb

You wouldn’t think that at 4 am you’d find a young man as level headed as Caleb but having the mic ready paid off.

The Audio is here

While that was a tad unusual for a CPAC running into Robert Stacy McCain at 4 AM was par for the course for CPAC 2017 or any CPAC for that matter and we spoke the camera was kaput by this time so our interview was audio only. We talked about his book Sex Trouble the war against human nature

You can and should buy his book here

This ended day two of DaTechGuy’s midnight court.

There is plenty more from CPAC coming over the next couple of weeks, but what is also going to be coming are a lot of hospital bills and debt from work that both my wife and I are going to be missing because of the complications from her “routine” surgery.

If you are able and inclined to help mitigate them I’d ask you to consider hitting DaTipJar

Pro-LifeA bit of a hint to the Marxist Feminist groups.  When your philosophy looks like this as described by major feminist writers used in Woman’s studies textbooks nationwide as quoted by Robert Stacy McCain:

The biggest problem with feminism, however, is that its ideology discourages marriage and motherhood (see “Anti-Marriage and Anti-Motherhood: Feminism’s War Against the Family”). All feminism is ultimately anti-male, viewing men as enemies who perpetrate oppression against women and benefit from unjust “privilege.” This makes it difficult, if not impossible, for feminists to reconcile their ideology with heterosexual relationships. Declaring that “marriage constitutes slavery for women” (Sheila Cronan, 1970), feminists have vowed “to destroy patriarchal power at its source, the family” (Andrea Dworkin, 1974), condemning heterosexuality as the “subjugation of women by means of a phallocentric sexuality” (Denise Thompson, 1980) because heterosexuality is “a socially constructed institution which structures and maintains male domination” (Diane Richardson, 2000).  The feminist belief that marriage is “slavery,” that male-female relationships are characterized by women’s “subjugation” under “male domination,” leads feminists to eschew such relationships, and thereby forego any benefit they might derive from having husbands and families.

The end result is a larger population of the young women who grow up raised by parents who eschew your philosophy and make classic videos like this

and become “Planned Parenthood’s worst nightmare

Autumn, a 16-year-old girl who recently released a video commentary on abortion, is eloquent, direct, unafraid, involved, informed and smart.

She is, as the activist organization Students for Life said, Planned Parenthood’s “worst nightmare.”

Students for Life explains.

“Autumn is in high school. She’s passionately pro-life. … This is what the next generation looks like on the issue of abortion – and the abortion industry is going to have real problems facing that down.”

The organization continued: “If we were Planned Parenthood, we’d be terrified of Autumn and the pro-life generation she represents: an educated, articulate and passionate one. A generation that cares deeply about human rights, and the equality of all people, which extends to the preborn. A generation that has successfully incorporated the mission to help women facing unplanned pregnancies into mainstream pro-life movement. … A generation that is truly fearless in the face of Planned parenthood and their allies.”

This is not a surprise it’s simple cause and effect, Stacy McCain again:

The more committed a woman is to feminism, the less likely she is to have children, and vice-versa, so that the feminist movement is at a distinct demographic disadvantage vis-a-vis feminism’s opponents.

Or as Weird Dave at Ace of Spades HQ (hat tip due) who called this video “nine minutes of pure, unadulterated, chrome wheeled, fuel injected, steppin’ out over the line awesome” put it

If children like this are our future, in a hundred years I really do believe that mankind will view abortion the way we view slavery today.

Or to put it another way, in twenty years there will be a lot more Autumns than Emma Watsons.

I suspect I will live just long enough to see it happen, and be glad.
