“Nobody knows when life begins, really.”
That little nugget of attempted intellectual spew just came at me from the brain-dead dipshits at the next table.
College students, nothing dumber on the planet.
They have been toddling thru the latest Supreme Court decision, much to my chagrin and annoyance.
Its annoying because there is an answer.
This is what is wrong with college. Students are not taught aggression. They get their soft little heads crammed with information, but they are never taught the process to push thru to their own opinion on anything.
That is why so many of them take the opinion that is voiced to them by some bearded socialist during this vulnerable period and take it like something they got straight from the burning bush.
Its a lot like a puppy that shits on the rug. Its so fucking cute….. the first few times. And then it goes on for most of their adult life.
And that is the shitty part. (Pun completely intended.)
But the life beginning thing has an answer.
And that answer is yes.
Life begins when it begins. Thats it. It has nothing to do with a court or viability or anything.
Ask a farmer if a carrot is still a carrot if you yank it out of the ground a week ahead of time.
Is it edible? Maybe not. Was it growing? Yes, because that it what life does.
Abortion being murder is a moot point. As a society, we have long viewed the taking of life as an ok thing. Animals, people, whatever, under the right circumstances, we are more than willing to do it. Remove the back story and look at the base action. Its all the same, unsatisfying answer, still the same.
And then the sarcastic side of my mind takes over.
If you are going to talk about life, you should start with masturbation. That is really where life begins, at least from the perspective of young boys, some young girls, but not as many as you think there would be.
Despite a childhood of getting caught each and every time they sneak a cookie, every boy is convinced mom has no clue, no matter how sloppy his masturbatory habits get.
Its a gender specific delusion that seems to permeate the entire male species.
If you think about it, a lot of life has ended tragically into tissues and socks everywhere since the beginning of time.
Ok, so that was a little deeper than I was going for.
Time to get off of the pedestal, I am 5 foot 3 on a good day and that high I risk a nosebleed.
You will notice that, for the most part, I did not mention female masturbation.
That is because I am a Feminist at heart, only a misogynist would go on and on about women and their naughty habits. (Also, I try to keep the posts under 1000 words at the most.)
I think, in the end, the whole “Life beginning” discussion is one of opinion and perspective, like a moveable feast that is wholly dependant on whoever it is flapping their pie hole at the time.
The thing that fucks it all up is the legal aspects of it all.
And the really scary part at the end of it is, that the final ruling will be made by the Supreme Court.
I have not seen a Supreme Court judge that was not so old and decrepit that they looked like they hadn’t had sex in several decades. (With the exception of Clarence Thomas and his slightly odd thing for soda, pubic hair and Long Dong Silver videos. You know that man is closing some serious Supreme Court groupies.)
