Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

A Japanese man caused quite a stir when he disposed of his life size sex doll in an effort to make a clean break of it. The body was discovered and police began a murder investigation only to discover the “victim” was a silicon sex doll who, according to Japanese authorities, “showed signs of repeated use”.

I can’t help wondering this this guy will be charged with a “hump and dump”.


Sexist politics?

September 15, 2008

I generally don’t comment on political subjects – it’s not that I’m not interested, it’s just that I’m too lazy.

Anyway, I thought that Kathleen Reardon posted an excellent article related to the GOP selection of Sarah Palin. In particular I loved her analogy:

You’re about to board a plane and a flight attendant says, “Today as part of our responsiveness to customers program you may choose Mr. Jones here as co-pilot. He will fly the airplane should something go wrong with the pilot, who isn’t at his best today. Mr. Jones has been a pilot for twenty years and has an impeccable record. He is, however, a man. Because you support the advancement of women in the workplace, we also have a woman here who is willing to fly your plane. She is not a pilot but she didn’t blink when asked to do this and for the past week a team of experts has been talking to her a lot about how to fly.”

You rock, Kathleen.
