as if Van Gogh’s woolly balls weren’t enough, updated

More of this week’s ridiculousness:

Amber&FitchI will show this to my daughter. And then we will not shop there anymore. Ever. I will buy the A&F stuff she already has from her and burn it in the fire pit in the back yard. WE DON’T NEED MORE OF THIS!

Update: As if this isn’t offensive enough, here’s what the top of  the abc website page hosting a video clip denouncing this offensive statement* looks like:

Yeah, that helps.

Yeah, that helps.

So while the commentators show their support for all of the non-cool by being (appropriately) righteously indignant, the ad next to, and almost as big as, the video screen tells about the show that will teach us how to “live well” be “being and feeling beautiful.”



And then there’s this foolishness:


Wow. Contraception leads to all that. I must have been using the wrong kind FOR 20 YEARS.

This from a website called “One More Soul,” (not linking to it. won’t do it. find it yourself if you must, but I will not be privy to such heinous acts) dedicated to “Fostering God’s Plan for Love, Chastity, Marriage, and Children.

Trying to take a quick glance without looking at it directly, so as to avoid retching, raging, and/or breaking out in hives, I did notice one particularly insightful headline:

Abortion, Contraception Consequences on Display in Gosnell’s ‘house of horrors’


Because what EVERY SINGLE FERTILE WOMAN ON THE PLANET, actually, no, what every single person on this planet needs is necessarily AS MANY CHILDREN AS POSSIBLE.

Does anybody else notice that one of the symptoms of “Sexual Chaos” is the implementation of artificial reproductive technologies? So ya’ll listen and listen good — no sex unless you want to make babies, but if God doesn’t think you’re suitable parenting material heinhisinfiniteandunknowablewisdom will deny this blessing, and you are absolutely forbidden from doing anything about it, because, despite the fact that you believe it will bring you great joy, support a strong family life, and contribute to a long, stable marriage, it actually leads to individualism, hedonism, selfishness, and lust.

Oh, and there’s an article discouraging immunizations for children, supported by their step-by-step bastardization of an article published in JAMA.

Ugh. now I’ve looked at it directly, and must go wash my eyes out with oil of newt and kill a couple of kittens or some unsuspecting old person.

*In the abc news clip, they interview a “plus size” model — she’s probably 5’11” and maybe weighs 125 pounds. Puh-lease.

    Loved it – thanks!
    Don’t see the problem with kitten killing though… 🙂

    I’m tempted to comment “…Only in America“, but I’m afraid this sort of attitude occurs even in the land of milk & honey that I write from.

    I believe that the contraception-is-the-source-of-all-evil concept exists and is even reasonably widespread, but I just can’t believe that the boss of A & F said that! Surely this must be some urban legend?

    Wow tubal ligation isn’t on the naughty list?! Or maybe my eyes are just that bad. That was the best and most adult decision that I have ever made. Sure I would have loved to have a lot more than two children but I did not have the ability to take care of any more. And they didn’t start out in the best way according to the above charts but they are great, responsible adults whose lives enrich those of others around them.

    I noticed the other night on one of the talk shows that a guest was talking about the neighborhood where those three girls were found alive that she called it a lower socioecononic something or other. Sorry I have a bad memory. The jist of was that these were just stupid people. Hmmm no. Just because some of us live in lesser housing doesn’t always mean we are stupid. Things happen in life. I was enraged by her comment.

    And so damn glad that I can’t fit into A&F clothes since I am now a size 12ish and no longer a 3. Ugh what a horrible company. They aren’t contributing to our youth, they are helping to destroy them.
