From Bangtown; Love and Lust in the Queen City

I absolutely love this! I came across it while Twittering, and sounds so much like me that I had to post it!! Women, we have to stop letting anybody and everybody sample the goodies at the drop of a hat! The last person I met (that I thought I might be interested in) I told that I have a "90 day rule"; no sex for the first 90 days. If you stick around and wait 90 days, then I know 1. you're not just out for the goodies, and 2. that our relationship is going to be based on more than just sex. What was her reaction? At first it "Aw hell no!" Then it was "Well, I can understand that." And after the 90 days was over? "Damn, I'm glad you made me wait. I really appreciate you and it a lot more this way." (Yes, she actually made that statement! LOL)Make em wait girls, and be picky about who you let in your store....


The bakery is closed
June 30th, 2009 by Shameika René in Mingling in the Queen City

“When you gonna let me sample the goodies?”

You’re familiar with the saying “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet,” — that’s Shakespeare for you non-reading folks.

The Goodies, peach cobbler, cookies, cream puffs or whatever you call the female genitalia — it’s still the same — but stepping to a female uttering a sentence is above and beyond disrespectful. ESPECIALLY in the 25 and up crowd.

My response: The bakery is closed.

Whatever happened to the days of getting to know someone and letting things progress naturally until you decide the man is worthy of the peach cobbler? Maybe there’s a permanent full moon that’s out in 2009 that allows these fools to utter the words—“when you gonna let me hit that, cause I can do this and I’m working with that.”

Blink. Blink.

Are you kidding me?

I’m sorry, but I think the women are going to have to take a hit on this one. It’s a vicious cycle:

I blame those chicks out there that find this bullshit cute and see nothing wrong with keeping the bakery open 24/7 letting folks sample the pastries.

Then in turn, those same men think the next chick they meet will have the same philosophy and allow him to come right on in and put his finger and other unmentionables in the pudding.

So no wonder diseases run rampant these days.

I’m trying to wrap my brain around the women that turn these fools down that get the response “oh you must not like sex” or “you must be a lesbian.”

Say what?

Just because some of us have self-esteem and value our bakeries then we have the issues?

I’d rather have my sweets in tact and be able to look myself in the mirror the next day in all my prettiness, rather than have to deal with the ish that comes with jumping in the sack with someone I know nothing about.

So excuse us for having standards and not willing to just leave the door unlocked for you to stick the doughnut and leave your glaze all over it only to turn around and do it to someone else tomorrow.

Lesson Learned: Fellas, it’s 2009, you’ve got to do better. Many of you wonder why you can’t find a good woman. Take a step back, look at how you approach us and think to yourself: would you want your mother, sister, cousin, or even daughter to drop the panties for lame lines like that? No, I think not. You’d want them to keep the bakery locked up tight with the key in a safe until the time is right.

Ladies, we as women deserve to be celebrated rather than treated like an old stale lemon cake. If these men want to satisfy their sweet tooth without handling their biz the correct way, then politely remind them: They have two good hands, use them.

TransPeople are Not Deceptive - Like This Ad From LACarGuy Implies We Are

From Pam's House Blend

Y'know, the trans panic strategy used in the Angie Zapata Hate Crime Murder Trial is way to fresh in my mind, where the defense implied (as defense attorneys always do when the trans panic defense is used) that the victim was deceptive in their presentation (usually male-bodied trans women presenting as women), and therefore is a mitigating factor in the commission of a violent "crime of passion."

There is a commercial from a Los Angeles group of auto dealerships that is literally showing a trans gender woman as being incredibly deceptive -- not telling her husband that she was male-bodied, and he discovering the surprise on a desert road to what we're left presuming would have been the honeymoon. (Really!)

There is an uncut version of the commercial here, and there is no question what the driver is seeing in his mirror before he drives off, leaving the bride alone in the desert without anyway to get home.

No violence there, eh?

The slogan that ends the commercial is:

Getting what you want isn't always easy. Finding the car you want should be.

So trans people are unwanted people, in LA Car Guy's eyes. Swell! And add that commentary to the lyrics of the song playing in the commercial's background, which begin:

Changing,
Not for better,
Feeling tired,
looking wetter.

Broken
Like a promise...

No commentary saying trans people are horrible, deceptive people there, whose transitions are "not for better," eh?

Nice.

I get tired of constantly having to defend my humanity to people who don't perceive me as fully human. Well guess what? I am fully human, and this commercial angers me.

If you, like me, want to comment to the LA Car Guy dealerships about their commercial, the contact information for these nine dealerships are below the fold.

Kung Fu Sect May Have Killed Carradine: Lawyer


While looking for the latest info on Troy Davis, (which I couldn't find anything new on, BTW) I found this article about David Carradine. I find it so strange (and funny) that people can be so sexually close minded as to prefer to NOT have closure, and to waste the taxpayers' money and the police department's time running around looking for a perpetrator of "foul play" rather than just except the fact that despite his age and how famous and well-to-do he was, the man had a sexual proclivity that a lot of folks don't find "normal". So what if he liked to have a noose around his neck and around his whang! There's an innocent (IMO) man on death row about to be executed; there are rapes being committed on a daily basis in places like Darfur and Kuwait; there are children dying of AIDS every day in Africa; in the grand scheme of things, WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE if David Carradine had a kink?

Newser) – A secret kung fu sect may have killed actor David Carradine for uncovering its secrets, his family's lawyer says. "If there was some foul play, that that may be the first area where" authorities "should look," Hollywood lawyer Mark Geragos said on Larry King Live. He added that the Carradine clan refuses to believe the actor died in a sex stunt gone wrong, the New York Post reports.

Geragos' suggestion echoes an earlier conspiracy theory that Triads, or Chinese mafia, killed martial arts actor Bruce Lee in 1973. Ironically, Lee had lost out to Carradine for the lead in the 1970s TV series Kung Fu. If Carradine "was involved in secret societies, it was a secret that even I didn't know about," says ex-wife Marina Anderson. "But he did have some big secrets."

Update on Troy Davis

Since the day I came here to Bikini Bottom this case is one that I have kept up with. There are a lot of things that disturb me about this country, so much so that if I were physically and financially able, I would leave it and go elsewhere. Nothing bothers me more than cases like this though, cases that emphasize not only the disparities in our justice system, but the downright insanity and injustice of a system that is supposed to keep us safe, and if we're innocent, keep us free. I'm not usually one of those "if it was a white man" people, but in this case I wonder. If the cop had been black and the suspect white, or if the suspect had been white period, with no evidence against him save the word of 9 people, one of whom wasn't sure and one of whom was also a suspect, would he have been sentenced to death for murder? If he had been, would he have gotten a new trial when the 7 witnesses recanted? Unfortunately, with the climate in this country the way it is, (despite now having a black president) I wonder....

Troy Davis' case is before the US Supreme Court. If it's turned down here, which most people seem to think it will be, then it goes back to Savannah, GA, and it will be up to the new District Attorney whether or not to reopen the case. Please, go to this link, read about Troy Davis, and send a letter to the new District Attorney. There are a lot of Troy Davises out there that need our help, but we can't help all of them. Perhaps we CAN help this one.
