The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Next: codpieces with condoms

I mean, really, a pro-choice thong?

Is it just me, or does it look like they ("they" being Planned Parenthood, its affiliates, and its friends) are pulling out all the stops to make abortion not only socially acceptable but downright cuddly?

Dawn Eden observes:

The ad copy for the thong shouts, "Buy your pair now before they are all gone!" I assume the "they" refers to the product and not future generations.

Actually, that was one of the milder things she said.

Some of us over the years have been uncomfortable with the whole idea of abortion but haven't been quite ready to call for an outright ban. But if its proponents are going to treat it as some sort of lifestyle choice, of no more importance than "Hmmm, flats or heels tonight?" — well, let's just say they're setting themselves up for a lesson in the Law of Unintended Consequences.

Yeah, yeah, I know: it's a routine medical procedure. So is vasectomy, and they don't have thongs for that.

Oh, wait, they do.

Jeebus. Welcome to the Age of Trivialization. Please take a logo-branded seat and wait your turn.

For a while, as a joke, one of the blogoSFERICS-branded items at my CafeShops store was a thong. It didn't sell, for reasons that escape me almost as readily as those for why Dennis Kucinich isn't the Hamstercrat nominee for president.

Maybe I should bring it back...
