Ted Cruz Likes Porn, Literally

8 months ago, this Twitter user claimed Ted made the same mistake while watching Twitter-hosted porn:

Bottom Of the Barrel Brad

What’s with Saskatchewan generating unkind Conservative politicians named Brad? Brad “Bumpkin” “Two Finger” Trost threw together some stock images into a meme against people in love being married.

I only see one penis in the image, and two fingers. Where’s the second?

At least the Edmonton-area also has to catch up to Moose Jaw, and Saskatoon & area (who elects Trost).

Rise Of The “Religious Assailant”

Reuters has brought a new phrase to the surface in an effort to describe someone religiously and politically motivated to attempt to murder peaceful political demonstrators.

“Religious assailant” is far more precise than “terrorist”.

I looked on Google with this search
“Religious assailant” -jerusalem
to see what other news comes up. Nothing of note. Apparently this is the first publicly noted crime by a “religious assailant” in years, if ever.

Where Abstinence Sex-Ed Goes Wrong

This hilariously depressing account of an American sex-ed classroom is a sight to behold.

Conservatives Learning Lessons of History

I’ll give old clothes to Salvation Army, and shop in their thrift shops, but I wouldn’t attend a re-education camp of theirs.

Conservatives: Solve community problems by shipping the problems out of the community!

To think, he was once the King of Spain

“Someone also began colluding with a freelance writer who was known not to be a fan of mine and, together, they set out to try to find corroborators to build a case to defame me. She found some sympathetic ears by painting herself as a victim and turned this into a campaign. The writer boldly started contacting my friends, acquaintances and even work colleagues – all of whom came to me to tell me this was happening”

Ghomeshi probably wants to strangle Brown.

Scottish Fish Invented Sex

Microbrachius dicki was the fish that realized it could use sex to reproduce. Feeling unsatisfied, fish eventually returned to spawning instead.

Avoid Brown’s Social House

Hey! Just wondering why you have the archaic & sexist rule that your waitresses have to wear a minimum 1″ heel while they’re on their feet all night? The men don’t have the same rule. That’s terrible, and I actually won’t be back because of it. Please pass that on to head office, thanks.

Brown’s wrote: “the policy that our girls need to be in a 1″ heel is a brand standard…”

I won’t be opting to return to Browns because of this. I’m also going to be telling my friends to avoid Browns, and will be posting this response to my blog. If you decide to modernize your policy and lose the sexist attitude toward your employees’ clothing, please let me know so I can update everyone.

If you operated in a location where women weren’t allowed to work, or perhaps people of a particular race, would your “brand standard” adapt to that? In Saskatchewan, we try not to institutionalize sexism. At least I’d rather not support it.

(A pair of commenters note that Earls and Moxxies adhere to the same archaic code, so good to avoid them too.)

Freaking Saskatoon Police #YXE #SKpoli

I’m sure the Saskatoon Police do a lot of good work. They’ve really cleaned up their image since the 1990s, and it’s been decades since they’ve reportedly given anyone a [deadly] Starlight Tour. Unfortunately, a new frontier of ignorant neglect has popped up. Saskatoon Police are not taking the solicitation of lone women in cabs very seriously.

“Take the cab with another person, with a friend,” said [Saskatoon police spokeswoman Alyson] Edwards.

Absurd! Victim blaming much? Also, have you ever managed to share a cab with a friend so you both end up at home while neither is alone in the cab?

Edwards didn’t even state, or the story didn’t mention, that a cabbie kidnapping a passenger for sex, then stranding them shoeless, is a serious crime.

Saskatoon
– It’s not always immediately clear whether an incident crosses the line into the Po-Po being dirty…

“Edwards said it’s not always immediately clear whether an incident crosses the line into criminal activity. She said police work closely with taxi companies.

“In the past we have looked at removing those licences if we have had problems,” she said.”

Pathetic.
“Work closely with taxi companies”? Horseshit. Try working closely with citizens sexually harassed by gross cabbies who should be in jail! {Never trust public figures saying they are “working closely”.}

Danger Cat writes: pardon my language, but that is some fucking bullshit. Where are we living that a woman needs to travel with another person to prevent her from being sexually harassed in a cab? Yeah – that’s criminal activity. It’s called SOLICITING. It’s called HARASSMENT.

Saskatoon Police, you work for the women of Saskatoon, not a taxi company or its gross sexual violators. Having your spokesperson blame women for creating a dangerous situation, and saying it’s not clear if crime has taken place given the serious, specific, and repeated accusations, is irresponsible. It sends the wrong message to women, and the wrong message to taxi companies and their unsafe drivers.

This is a poor headline choice that incorrectly places blame on the victim. It should read “Taxi drivers accused of sexual harassment.” Despicable, completely unjustifiable behaviour.
