Hogwash on the Range - Where the Ape Shit and the Delirious Play

This nonsense of a trial is getting nuttier and nuttier by the minute. We have Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline wanting to force health professionals to report any evidence of sexual activity of girls under 16 to the authorities.

Just girls. Not boys. Just girls. And evidently it's OK for a teenage girl to go down on a boy, but not OK for the boy to go down on the girl.

And his witnesses are equally loonie.

But the doctor (University of Michigan gynecologist, Elizabeth Shadigian) said Kansas girls need the protection, because even when they think they
are engaging in voluntary sex, they are not.

"In the present-day situation, with the state of affairs as it is, it is
not a voluntary situation, with all the injustices in the power
differential between men and women," Shadigian said.

Shadigian testified that even when a girl asks a boy to fondle her genitals,
she is likely being controlled by the boy.

Cuz there's no way a young girl would actually enjoy fooling around. Doesn't it always cause her to run crying hysterically into the bathroom to vomit?

And if this is really the case, I shouldn't have been grounded for those two weeks in 1986. It wasn't my fault. I was being controlled, damnit!

And then we have this gem.

"If you have two 15-year-olds, and one is a black male, and one is
a white female, some people have a very different posture of the power
between the two than if it's the other way around," Shadigian said.

"Historically, black slave women were subjected to sexual advances by
their white slave owners, so there's a definite power differential in
that case," Shadigian continued.

So, now I'm confused. Is interracial teenage scrogging better or worse than same-race teenage scrogging? And it matters which race the boy is and which race the girl is because of slavery that was eradicated 150 years ago?

And if that isn't enough, this doozy gets thrown into the mix.

A child psychiatrist testifying for Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline
told a federal judge that teenage girls' access to birth control pills should
be limited but not boys' ability to buy condoms.

Since BTK was caught, I'm guessing that the Wichita Eagle readership has been declining significantly. I really hope this is just a bad publicity stunt to boost readership and not an attempt to fuck with the lives of teenage girls and drag the whole state of Kansas back to the days of slavery or the Inquisition or the Dark Ages or whatever they heck they're trying to do.

And pray tell, whatever will the folks in Wichita have to talk about when this trial is over?

    I'm pretty sure you just described the entire plot of the in-production "Footloose 2: Diddling in the Dark."

    Mrs. Danger-Seeker and I once visited family in Lawrence, allegedly one of Kansas' more progressive burgs. I swear, it was like a scene from "Children of the Corn" (to keep the cinematic theme going.)Sadly, it made Florida seem sane by comparison.

    This country used to be the shining light of progress. Now we are the laughing stock.

    The only thing that this will do is get girls to avoid health care providers. They think they got a lot of suicides now...

    Is there, like, an eternal dark cloud over Kansas or something? A big pit in the center of the continent? I do see they had to bring in a "gynecologist from the University of Michigan". I'm sure those in Kansas look up to Michigan. Does this woman actually teach at the U of M? Why doesn't Kansas just outlaw gynecology? You don't really need to KNOW how it works, you know. I mean, animals don't have gynecologists, do they? And somehow they get it done. I want some laws passed against teenage inter-animal sex.

    I think this is all just an elaborate scheme to stop the spread of cooties.

    I can't figure out if this is feminism taken too far or an example that feminism hasn't come far enough.

    I think that all Kansans should be prohibited from having sex. Then we can just let that gene-pool die out.

    Gosh, is that ALL you Kansas girls think of? You must have some pretty wild girls up there. They certainly need some male-dominant government controlling. Those males up there sure unnerstand wimin.

    It's as stupid as you think it is, but states and state courts have been saying the same thing for sixty years.

    "Women don't need to take precautions against pregnancy--they already have a built in precaution against pregancy: it's called their uterus. Unlike boys, they have one and so they should know better than to have sex. Boys don't have one, so they should buy condoms."

    At the same time, for the last sixty years, states have been charging teenage boys with statutory rape for having sex with teenage girls and insanely justifying it by saying: Girls have a natural deterence to premarital sex--they have a uterus. Whereas boys need the threat of prison to stop them from fucking around."

    And boys and girls keep fucking around. Like they have since the dawn of time. And some boys go to prison, and some girls get pregnant.

    But Americans? They stay just as stupid as if Eve never ate that apple at all.

    And Yes, Ellen, that is all us Kansas girls think of. There's really not much to do up there, but wait for Prince Charming to knock us up.
