Speak not the name of the demon, lest it gain more power? But, does this not give The Name That Must Not Be Uttered more weight locally, more mystery and influence than that of others spoken easily? Ahh, sorcery and conjuration on the Internet! For these are dark times, and children who speak of the wrong names and numbers could go missing in the night...
If the Chinese Internet is any example, people will start naming things with proxy names, and then the regime shall have to track all those
otherwise mundane words for things, on and on.
It's very curious when said unnameable simultaneously complains about the supposed activities of a "whore," as he calls it and
insinuates that many of his audience might quite enjoy purchasing those services. If so many are likely to enjoy it privately, does it really make that much difference if we simply declare the business just another good, and stop flinging the word around as if its buyers and sellers should live in shame and fear?
If a woman does
makes a sex video, will the complainants all kindly "man up" and generate private fees (as they seem to think this is very important in society), definitely pay for her birth control, or perhaps pay a goodly sum for the video on a regular basis? Do they really believe that then they have purchased the right to spit names and vitriol -- and at any
time, in public no less -- at the same woman? Or perhaps that they have that right, simply because others might purchase her sexual services?? The whole underlying logic is fascinating but contradictory. Won't pay her publicly, but if only her kind would act slutty and oh, definitely put a humiliated face on that while they do it to make it acceptable for us, why then so many of us would privately pay her for being such a "good" worker.
Wow. So what kinds of office fantasies, or actual colleague relationships, do all these "pro-business" people who follow this have?
There are several medical applications of birth control drugs
, regardless of whether one approves of intervening in the baby production process.
It's one thing to oppose public funding for anyone
's health in principle, but I'm not sure precisely how one can distinguish "women's health" here from public health, as we know it in other cases. Presumably certain private insurance companies have a way, as some have been clamoring to keep mammograms and such from being covered in the national plan. It rather sounds like another wave of the same woman-excluding motion, to me.
If one's bottom line "point" is to protest a shortage of personal responsibility in society, then I suspect anyone can pick and choose anything... There's always
room for smaller government and more private responsibility. If you are against government funding for personal health generally, then why exactly should we start or stop at birth control? Why, let's aim big: Are modern sewer systems and water purification really
necessary for basic survival?
