Porn=Dying w/ Dignity=BAD CHOICES!

Kendra at Catholic All Year somehow manages to equate Jennifer Lawrence posing nude with Brittany Maynard making the decision to die with dignity before her brain tumor kills her, and declares both to be bad choices.

I, I can't even . . .

"People who choose suicide and pornography don't feel like they have any other options. And that's not really a choice."

:angry-banghead:

Part of me just wants to roll my eyes at the stupidity. And part of me - the part that watched my sister die slowly over 16 months of a glioblastoma - wants to reach through my computer and slap her.

Rebelwife, I'm so sorry about your sister. Everyone has the right to death with dignity and free of pain. A terminal diagnosis is just that. TERMINAL. You are going to die, period. But you DO have a choice: some choose to hang on til the very end, often in excruciating, unrelenting pain, often unable to communicate, and others to die on their own terms at their own time. Either of those choices deserves respect, compassion and understanding, even if it's not a choice we would have made.

As to the nude photo thing, well, I'll be honest and say I just don't get it and never have. Yes, we SHOULD have an expectation of privacy but it's never been that way, even before the digital age. Talk to anyone who's ever been employed in photo processing and they'll tell you about the collections of nudie photos that got duplicated and passed around. It's not right and I don't condone the theft of anyone's images, but it's naive to think that just because you SHOULD have privacy online that you WILL.

And while I hate to agree with Kendra on anything, I also though that Jennifer Lawrence's statement WAS pretty sad and resigned. YMMV.

Kendra's one of those bloggers that most of the time posts innocous often fun sounding stuff then comes out with something so awful that you're suddenly reminded just how scary she really is. Read her posts on contraception and NFP (doesnt' believe in either) and her responses to women who comment that they might die if they have more children for other examples. Her comments on the girl scouts, gay marriage and the like are equally appalling, but the thing is you have to hunt for them. She doesn't hit you over the head with the crazy in the way Lori does. In many ways I think she's more dangerous.

BTW, not surprisingly, she and her husband are heavily in to Opus Dei.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
