Oh no they didn't



This week, one of my teaching assistants told me that when they were showing Manet's "Olympia," a student literally held up a piece of paper in front of his face until they switched Power Point images. Another student emailed me and had a saying about the need to believe that the Devil exists at the bottom of his message. Now I see that there is a new Born-again Christian fashion statement - "ex-masturbator," best quote: "You people are laughing because you people are masturbating." Having survived the Regan era, and of course the dictatorship of Bush the Second, and the Religious Right, I am experiencing Post Traumatic Stress.

Huh? What the deuce? Petite...are this people serious? Is religious fanaticism in America getting this stupid? "Ex Masturbator"...please!!!!

How about "Ex Person", people that used to have a brain and now, thanks to our lord and savior, they don't need it anymore!

Because of things like this, I am proud to say, "Thank God I'm an Atheist!"

That's ok - the world will teach them a thing or two.

Ignorance is bliss.

These youths are going to explode all over the place one day--the boys have potential to be rapists. I love the language: Enbondage to masturbation--sorry my vibrator calls, and so does my hairy palm..love it!
