misscam: (82 years of gay (but maybe it's a phase))
I'm up late (2 a.m on a working day, ick) because it's Norwegian election night and the left-centre coalition government seems to have retained a majority.

So, four more years of Labour, Socialist Left and Centre Party. Okay. I'm midly pleased without being terribly excited or anything. Not so pleased about voting precentage - only about 73% seem to have used their right to vote. This bothers me. Gotta do better.

Either way, Norway for the next four years seems to be steady as she goes.

Meanwhile, this had me staring in horror for half an hour.

I mean, what the hell is this?

MS: You know, I'm gay..I'm gay, and I don't molest any children. What do you think of that?

SA: Well, I'd say you're lying.

MS: You think I must be molesting children, right?

SA: Exactly, right.

MS: Do you pray that I'll die tonight?

SA: If you're a homosexual, I hope you get brain cancer like Ted Kennedy.


... Dude, as an atheist I'd make a better Christian than you, you hateful asshat. You're just using religion to justify your own prejudices over changing attitudes over sexuality and growing acceptance. And you sure seem lacking in the whole compassion department. Not to mention sanity and facts, since a vast majority of pedophiles are heterosexual.

Even so, I ain't going to wish brain cancer on you. But you'll have to forgive me for not wishing you anything well either.

However, the non-hateful part of humanity, I wish a very good night to. Sleep well, world.

Do you remember Hellfire? I bet those of you who do wish you didn't. For those of you that don't, this is Hellfire, infamous for her hate of Islam and her love of incest - the real kind. With her father. Who made sexual advances to her when she was 15 (but that's okay! They only consummated when she was 19! Really! NO), and that she's apparently still in a relationship with.

And now she's back once more to defend her and daddy's twu wub. (I gagged a little in my mouth as I wrote that.) It starts on page two and goes on.

In my experience (and in the experience of the great many incestuous people I've taken the time to befriend online) having an incest relationship is about learning to be friends, family and lover all at the same time. Contrary to popular belief, it is possible for the family role and the lovers role to not be in conflict, actually what happens is that two roles peacefully coexist. Most people have a natural aversion to incest, but for whatever reason, some of us don't; I just happen to be one of those people. I have obviously had non-incest relationships as well, but I always end up going back to my dad (he's got such a sweet personality and I think he's sexy). Overall I'm far more attracted to related people than unrelated people, and I'm not ashamed of this fact, it's a part of who I am. (...) Incest IS pure and perfect. It is all types of love rolled into one.


No dear, having an incest relationship is a lot of the time about having been fucked up enough by your family that you can't see beyond it. Your father is not the love of your life. Your father is a fucking bastard who has screwed with you in more than one way and still is. I bet my waffle he is the source of your Islamophobia too.

I'm always so torn between wanting to feel sorry for her and wanting to scream at her. But then I remember her mentioning wanting to have children and raise them in incest-y glory and shag them when they come of age, and my brain just wants alcohol.

ETA: For extra fail, she invokes Martin Luther King for her 'yay incest!' cause:

One person can change the course of history, like Martin Luther King and how he fought for the equal rights of black people. If a single person can change the course of history, don’t you think that even a handful of us can make a difference for all incestuous people, even though we must go about our battle in a different way at first? All we need is enough faith in ourselves, and enough faith that the truth about the positive side of incest, our online testimonies, can win over the hearts and minds of non-incestuous people. I for one do have that faith.


Meanwhile, tomorrow is May 1st and gloriously a public holiday. I have serious writing plans and am working on three fics at once. Oops. The weather is supposed to be fab tomorrow as well, so I might curl up somewhere outside and write. I love May. It's the best month of all and hopefully will be this year too.

I got tagged by [livejournal.com profile] meryl_edan for ten random facts about me.

1. I was born during the cross country women's relay in the 1980 Olympics, and my father was pissed because the smoking waiting room only had a black and white telly. I was also two weeks overdue and a not-easy birth.
2. My reading speed was tested several times in school, as it's something like three times the average and they wondered if I really could read that fast and still comprehend what I was reading. I can.
3. Listening to football reports on the radio on summer Sundays while reading a book in the garden is about my most favourite thing in the world, and could only be better if I had a hammock and some hot guy was serving me cool drinks during.
4. I was the headline footage on a national newsbroadcast when I was ten - in red tights and a pink Minnie Mouse sweater.
5. My favourite candy is a kind of pepper candy known as Turkish Pepper. It's actually from Finland.
6. I don't like gold jewelry that much and vastly prefer silver.
7. I don't go anywhere without a book in my bag.
8. I'm a raid leader in my World of Warcraft guild, and is also known as the one who makes naughty jokes, have three WoW-'husbands' in a harem and is sometimes nicknamed 'the human megaphone'. Yes, well.
9. I love football. Twice a year, I go to football matches with my mother. To watch her team and my team against a local one, as we both like teams from Northern Norway. My father doesn't care about teams, only football tables. Hah. When they go abroad, I always get a text message like two minutes after all the matches are done, demanding results.
10. I sing "Beautiful Savior" at the family Christmas dinner, and my brother reads how Jesus was born from the Bible - this despite my whole family being atheist. Yeah, I don't know. It's just tradition.

I tag no one. Hah.
misscam: (See you again)
Fred Phelps' group of fundie fucknuts were held up at Canadian border and failed to show at the funeral they intended to picket. (The funeral of the victim of the recent gruesome beheading at a public bus.)

Awww. What shame they won't get to spread their hate all this time around. (As they were declaring their intention to do here.) How sad for them, truly. Sad, sad, sad. I could laugh at their sadness all day. Canada 1 Phelps 0. Gooooooooooo Canada!

Also, I so want to see "The Pastor Phelps Project: a fundamentalist cabaret" now - it sounds brilliant.

(Also, WTF PETA?)

Meanwhile, this secret posted to [livejournal.com profile] fandomsecrets made me smile and awww. Adama and Roslin for the win.

While on the pair, this sex for the good of you story, wherein NHS direct claims [e]ndorphins released during orgasm stimulate immune system cells, which also helps target illnesses like cancer, as well as wrinkles made me envision Cottle giving doctor's orders "get laid" to Laura, so her body can better fight the cancer. Further proof that yes, BSG has eaten my brain.

Cute cat story alert: A cat is baffling his owner by wandering off at night before expecting to be collected by car every morning at exactly the same time and place. I love that he's a Norwegian Forest cat as well. Us Norwegians, we're particular, yes.

The irony, it tastes like irony: France's anti-immigrant party, the National Front, is selling its headquarters to a Chinese university.

If you're confused by why Georgia and Russia are having a go at each other, this briefly explains the background. In short: It's a long story that doesn't reflect that good on either Georgia's or Russia's government. Or the response from some countries. Meanwhile, people die.

A book offers a look at Egypt's marriages problems. But you know, this girls are not supposed to be actively seeking something, a girl simply exists for someone to marry or divorce her. To say she wants something is seen as impolite is still something that lingers in our society too, though things have and are changing.

Right. Plan of the day: Work (blah), not drowning (rain blah), feed and pet the cat, write on Bill-and-Laura-in-raptor-crash-on-Earth fic for [livejournal.com profile] falena84, make and eat dinner, kill Azgalor like the dead demon he should be (WoW) and sleep. Wow, my life is exciting.
misscam: (We are not amused)
I don't even know where to begin with this one, it's so fucked up.

But right. So, this 82-year-old woman dies here in Norway and leaves a will. In it, she stipulates that the money from sale of her possessions shall be left to 'organizations and people who will work actively against foreign immigration to Norway'.

Charming, innit?

But that ain't the real kicker. The real kicker is that the appointed committee to distribute this money at first wanted to give 250,000 NOK to Ole Nicolai Kvisler. Who is he, you ask? Why, he'd be the total neo-Nazi asshat who murdered 15-year-old Benjamin Hansen some years back. Benjamin, you see, was dark-skinned (African father) and for that he was stabbed 21 times and was left to bleed to death in the dark. (He was born here, and really, was as Norwegian as me in every way.) It was Norway's first racially motivated murder after the war and it stunned the whole nation. I don't think I can express just how much that murder punched us all in the gut here. It was devastating.

And this committee of fairly known racists apparently wants to reward murder. With 250,000 NOK. (That's about 50,000 USD.)



So, the media reports on this and it seems the committee has fallen out (because of that or before, we don't know) and complained to the courts and maybe the asshat won't get the money at all.

I'm still pissed off like you wouldn't believe.

That these fuckwits even expressed the idea of rewarding a murderer, regardless of how you feel about immigration... I'm speechless. WHAT. And a good portion of the money is apparently also going to 'Vigrid', a neo-nazist, Holocaust-denying racist organisation whose founder used to live in my neighbourhood. (Believe me, I want to take a shower every time I remember that.) That organisation claims to be 'new Nordic', but they spew racial hatred and more or less advocate violence. In fact, Vigrid seems to believe they're the organisation who deserves the whole inheritance and has made a passionate plea for it.

For their stellar work in claiming Hitler was a misunderstood woobie, no doubt. EAT SHIT, VIGRID. Other people who are apparently rewarded includes a guy who's convicted for death threats.

There are seriously not words for how much rage I'm feeling at the moment. But I know what I'm going to do later today - donate some money to an anti-racist organisation of my choice. Because this kind of fuckwit thinking? Not what I want unopposed in my country.

I want to throw up.

Argh, why is LJ eating my comment notifications and how long have they? Or is my gmail being faulty? Blah. Well, if I haven't replied to something you thought I should, I might not have seen it at all. Sorry!

When poking around for some spoilery X-Files photo, I found this rather wankalicious debate over spoilery icons. Serious business, as you all know. Also, be warned spoilery set photos are posted. (Wants precious, wants!)

Did rather make me wonder what would happen if set photos of snogging in the upcoming serious four of Doctor Who got leaked and then iconized everywhere. I suspect wank would happen, especially if the Doctor shared willingly tongue with anyone involved in current ship arguments.

Which also reminded me I'm actually not excited about series four - not because I won't like the episodes, which I think I will on the whole, but because series four is just subtitled 'Licence to Wank' in my head. Seriously. Given spoilers I've read, there's bound to be blow-up somewhere.

Might need Pornathons to distract us all. Or Orgython. Er, something like that.

In that vein - the tale of the cricketer that rugby-tackled the streaker. Something about that story just cracks me the hell up. Could be the pictures of the cricket-gearup so intimate with nakedness. Quick, someone write me porn with cricket clothes!

Also happening in Australia - Swede jailed for hitman plot - but gets huge discount for assisting police. I'm not sure if I want to pity her or smack her.

I'll take Hardcore Creatisionism Is Dumb as Phelps for 1000, please Alex:
I believe in my heart that dinos and man where here together. It is because of evidence that I have studied leads me to this belief. I believe man saw dinos becasue one of them wrote about them, Job.

The bonus debate about whether one dinosaur was a 'fire-breathing dragon' is also gold. But give it up for Alex the Catholic:
Anyone who believes dinosaurs co-existed is in some sort of serious denial. I am a Catholic who believes in divine inspiration when it comes to evolution, but to believe dinosaurs and man existed together is to totally ignore logic itself. Dinosaur bones are not bones in themselves. They are rock, where mineral has replaced the calcium of dinosaur bones. Therefore, they can be carbon dated to an exact time and place, which happens to be 65 million years ago. It doesn't matter if there is theory surrounding much of the dinosaurs life and death. When they lived and died is certain. In other words, if you believe dinosaurs and man co-existed, you are a moron.

Sanity is such a turn-on.


Meanwhile, life in Norway:
- A movie about Nazi!zombies are being made with a state grant. Bwhahaha.
- Gender-neutral marriage law shall be introduced next week. Which means gay marriage will finally be legally so and not known as 'partnership' any more.
- WW2 warship found in Narvik. Nice touch to have a service for it.
- Football starts in a month. This is very important. Meanwhile, I play football on Facebook. Huzzah.

misscam: (Batshit! Crazy!)
Okay, what the hell is this? It's like some combination epic grudge (which may or may not be justified) and epic batshit. And people on my flist are involved and I'm just boggling. What what WHAT.

This is nuttier than the chick who claimed to 'know' George was in love with Marg and decided to tell the truth on her website. (Also, she happened to ship the two characters those actors played. But that had nothing to do with it, of course.)

I realise getting emotionally involved in fandom makes you feel a claim on it (feel that way myself now and then), but sometimes that just goes far and beyond and into the batshit.


Urgh. Meanwhile, it's winter holiday in Norway, which means a lot of people are off work, which means those who didn't take a holiday have more to cover. Fun stressed times all around - but I have Friday off and look forward to it like a dog to a bone.

And also it's my birthday on Thursday 21st. Hoo hum. I have bought myself Inspector Lynley Mysteries as a gift to self, but there are of course a million other silly things I'd want.

Birthday wishes, silly and serious alike )

I need to start planning my summer holidays. Hmm. [livejournal.com profile] falena84 might come to vist, but I'm rather keen on going a bit abroad too. If I poked by the UK, would anyone there be interested in meeting? (Half tempted to visit the US again too, but argh, customs and current political climate.)
misscam: (WTF)
Hmpf. Why am I awake? Oh, right. Work. Work which today is basically watching the phone while everyone is away and zilch else to do. (Seriously, I even asked for stuff to do, but no.) Time to stalk my flist?

(And I know I am late with fic - sorry! Got distracted by helping someone move, work, WoW (yay netherdrake) and autumn. Oh yeah. It's autumn in Norway and I am getting rained on. Brrr. I shall try to refocus.)

So during the weekend I watched a program about 'Kids on Fire' Bible camps in the US and got scared out of my brains. Kids being indoctrined, fundamentalism-is-the-only-way, thinking prayer solves everything, the hostility to science and firm conviction evolution is a fraud, the pushing of children into advocating anti-abortion, the firm belief in Satan - this world boggles me.

Blah blah religion, indoctrinating your kids and much WTFery )

Am I just better off not understanding this?

Other stuff:

- Albin the albino moose is spared again. Awww. Also aww is Future Queen Ingrid Alexandra. She's really starting to grow :)

- Rosenborg managed a draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, to much amusement for many Norwegians and non-CHelsea fans. Also beacuse apparently Swedish expert commentator Glenn Hysén promised to crawl 120 kilometres if Rosenborg were to get points from the match. Glenn? Start crawling. 8He's apparently agreed to keep his promise if the distance is reduced. Heh.) Day after teh match, Chelsea coach buggers off. I guess he wasn't good enough at turning the omelette. Ah, football. I wub thee.

- Heh, yet another comm has 'borrowed' Page-A-Mod. Suppose I should be flattered so many like my idea - even a community owner I know loathes my gutts has snagged - though renamed it, of course.

- People of Supernatural fandom, is the chick of this wank as fandom batshit as she seems? Because wow.

- I read on the train to and fro work and since I read fast, I go through a lot of books. I quite often buy cheap books at a place in Oslo central station and the guy working mornings there now recognises me and makes comments about my book buying. I find this bemusing.

- I loves NRK for sending The Daily Show five times a week now. Give me a hug, you big state-owned channel. YOU BRING ME THE AWESOME.

- Robert Jordan died??? Wow. I started reading Wheel of Time when I was a lot younger and though I did lose interest in it, I do have fond teenage memories of it - and it was the series of books that got my brother reading, for which my mother is enternally grateful. (Now he reads a lot.) :(

- "I steal your fics because I'm whacky like that!" Bitch, please.

I need lunch now.
misscam: (STFU)
Proclaims his little group of religious fucknuts on their website, www.godhatesamerica.com:

"WBC will preach at the funerals of the Virginia Tech students killed on campus during a shooting rampage April 16, 2007. You describe this as monumental horror, but you know nothing of horror -- yet. Your bloody tyrant Bush says he is 'horrified' by it all. You know nothing of horror -- yet. Your true horror is coming. 'They shall also gird themselves with sackloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads' (Eze. 7:18).

Why did this happen, you ask? It's simple. Your military chose to shoot at the servants of God today, and all they got for their effort was terror. Then, the LORD your God sent a crazed madman to shoot at your children. Was God asleep while this took place? Was He on vacation? Of course not. He willed this to happen to punish you for assailing His servants."

Because clearly, the best way to punish the military is having a shooting at a polytechnic University. Clearly. Very logical.

If you're completely delusional and batshit, that is.

I swear Fred Phelps is like a guy running around naked, (miniscule) testicles flopping in the breeze, screaming "LOOK AT MEEEE LOOK AT MEEEEE LOOK AT MEEEEE I'M SPESHUL LOOK AT THE MIGHT OF MEEEEEE LOOK AT OOOOOOW!" as he runs into a tree. Or, with any luck, a Steel Fist of Karma making him finally STFU. He probably knows no other way to feel all special and important than being hateful and offensive and failing at scary.

What a sad little fucknut he is.

I bet even God would *facepalm*. And the *headheavenlygates*. Because what God with any respect for himself would want *that* on his team?

You know how you can be on the same ship as someone and thus on the same communities and fora and what not - and then suddenly realise that why yes, you are on totally different planets of interpretation and preception and logic.

Because sharing a love for something is not neccessarily sharing the same whys for loving it.

And then sometimes you're in such fundamentally different galaxies trying to communicate across is like just shouting into space and getting the ET theme tune back.

All this is really just a lead up to say - WTF IS THIS SHIT AND WHY HAVE NO BLACK HOLE EATEN IT ON ITS WAY TO MY GALAXY?!

Eagle-eyed observers will note it's the same chick who told me off for warning people not to bash Martha - on a comm I mod. I can see she continues her stellar performance. Lets all give a one-fingered clap for this act, yes?

Also, did you know getting a pelvic exam is like foreplay and wrong in the name of Jesus?

My, how the stupid is strong. Seriously, if a pelvic exam does anything for sexual urges, it's reducing them. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want to shag anyone whose idea of foreplay that is. Ow, is all I'm saying.

misscam: (Whaaat?)
And in today's 'whaaaat?':

Females evolved pleasurable response to sex as a survival mechanism to deal with rape, much as males evolved the same to encourage it -- certainly long before humans ever arrived on the scene. In the animal kingdom, where consent is not a menaingful concept, all sex is rape and all sex is not-rape. To animals there is no difference between rape and consensual sex, because they are the same thing.(...)
Men evolved to compete with each other and then seize women as prizes, to force themselves on their prizes, and then develop a sense of emotional attachement to their prizes. Meanwhile women developed to enjoy being captured, and to take advantage of the emotional attachments that the male developed to enlist his aid in child-rearing.
It's pretty ugly yes, but it's there. And if you don't understand that men (all men) have that drive to varying degrees, to just take and let the consequences sort themselves out, then you'll never understand why men can get so angry at women that they will beat them to death for not consenting to sexual relations.


I'll take WHAT THE FUCK FELL ON YOUR HEAD? for 1000, Alex. Granted, when you wander out of the human neighbourhood and into the wide world of the animal kingdom, 'sex', 'consent' and 'pleasure' get new contexts to be wrapped in constantly and variations are many. Many, many, many. Which might be the first clue drawing sweeping conclusions and making generalizations could meet with fatal accidents. You know, trains of logic head-on.

Also - holy offensive bullcrappery, Batman! I'm not sure to be most offended over backdoor rape justification with villification of the female orgasm or the sweeping insult of males and their pet penises. Choices, choices.

For bonus points, watch him wank away in the wank report about him.

I think I shall exercise my female prerogative of not mating with the losers and throw this one out of the pool of even remote shag possibilities. With extreme prejudice. (However, any males who balk at the bullcrappery will increases their chances. I love me men of logic and sanity.)

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] mademoisellenon. You still need to e-mail me your address so I can send you something though, you forgetful thing.

So my layout has gone fucked up due to a server move, but no time like the present to take the opportunity to make a new, I'm thinking. Sadly, I suck at such things, so I need to result to bribery. I have no shame in this. So, is there anyone out there who'd be willing to make me a LJ-layout for paid LJ time or something else we can work out?

I think I'll go Norway this time. Yay Norway.

Nos got a troll. Possibly.

What's with all the trolls of late, anyway? There's the [livejournal.com profile] doctorwho troll as well, with its various inane YouTube links and random twittering. And the batshit Scott-is-my-God is declared a troll as well.

Now for fundie fun. Of sorts. [livejournal.com profile] vulgarweed got me pointed to this website, which is littered with such gems as:

The stupid, the offensive and the plain WHAT? )

Batshit doesn't just happen in fandom, I see. Impressive show.

Meanwhile, Beijing is trying to battle bad English ahead of the Olympics. Awww. I find it kinda cute, me. A humorous way of showing the problems of translation.

I have sent off a chapter of "An Adventure in Norway" to beta. Huzzah. It has actual Plot. Of sorts. Now there's just the gazillion other stories I need to work on, but ah well.

Football today yay. And yesterday, my wee Tromsdalen won its match. (They're in the first division, the level below the Elite division. They came from second division last year, and everyone expected them to go down again, but now they've defeated three out of the four best teams in the division and look good to survive and I wub them so much.) Much happiness. Also, I ordered a supporter scarf in celebration of them and a guy in the team called me and wondered why I supported their team when I lived down south and I explained I grew up there. We got to talking and he invited me to a match next Sunday, as it's relatively near me. Relatively being the key. We'll see, I guess. But still, hee.

What are you happy about today?

My reproductive system hates me. Or it thinks making me suffer pain every month is a glorious way of having test runs for the (possibly) eventual pain of child birth. ARGH HATE either way.

Yep, it's been one of these days. I've stayed in bed feeling sorry for myself inbetween thinking sweet things about modern pain killers. I watched my season one of Wire in the Blood, Sweden - Spain (Sweden won. AHAHAHA.), some Bleak House, Capote and the news, which reported ETA and the Spanish government are having secret peace talks in Norway. Hum. Oh, and no one has shot albino moose yet.

In the never-ending saga of HP socks and wank, a mouse gets pwned. Possibly. I'm starting to get headaches from that one. It's so invooooolved.

Speaking of pwning - I'm no fan of FOX News, but props to them for illustration an interview with the Spawn of Phelps with a picture where she actually looks batshit. I can just imagine the people working there carefully looking through the interview freezeframe by freezeframe, looking for the moment where the batshit is gloriously evident, cackling evilly when they found the right one. "Diagnosis: Batshit". (Don't read the interview. You'll just want to vomit.)

Oh, and for those who've declared their yay for gift exchange come Christmas, I've updated my Amazon wish list. Will give you some idea what shinies I like if you're already pondering. I now love House enough to have it up there. Yay snarky Doctors!

A shipper gets confused - or not? I'm not actually sure what she's on about. But I am impressed the "supah" fan of GSR still managed to spell both actors' names wrong.

If there ever is a Sane Shipping 101 handbook, the importance of spelling certain names right will certainly need to be in. And character names.

Finally, "Let me have a moment to say how Ten is such a great kisser...in my dreams." Because a fictional character's kissing abilities in a dream should be shared with the world, I guess.

Remember Fred Phelps and his lot, people? I'm sure you do. So you already know your blood pressure is about to rise, I'm sure. (Got link from [livejournal.com profile] aelie_baby. Thanks.)

The controversial anti-homosexual Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan., has canceled its plans to stage a protest at the funerals of the five Amish girls executed in their Pennsylvania school, a church official said Wednesday.
Shirley Phelps-Roper, the daughter of church's pastor, told FOXNews.com the group canceled the protests in exchange for an hour of radio time Thursday on syndicated talk-show host Mike Gallagher's radio program.

Oh SWIMMINGLY. So, for this lot of chaaaaaaarming people not to behave like batshit pond-scum with the tact and grace of bee-stung ogres, they get to spew their hateful shit for an hour on some US national radio?

I demand an hour on that show for homosexuals, Swedes, Amish, soldiers and anyone else the "church" might have insulted so they can talk about what a small dick Fred Phelps has and what his obsession with semen might entail nudge nudge wink wink.

Fair's fair, after all.

I'll bet you almost anything that true followers of the Islamic faith are probably NOT followers of Doctor Who. When one's religion demands that people submit, pay a tax, or DIE, I suspect that is not going to endear a specific liking to the Timelord (a rebel who refuses to follow the rules?!), his companion (yikes, where is her burka?!), and their various adventures (tolerance? freedom? what kind of blasphemy is that?!)

Oh, good grief. I'm not sure if that's meant as a really bad joke or something, but it doesn't appear to be a troll, so... WTF, dude. What's this, how to be offensive and ignornat in five easy steps? And with the Thatcher loving, that thread is bound to get wanky. Fun times for all.

WTF creationists? In Norway? )

When I got home and read the brochure, I was sad to discover it wasn't the 'the Earth is 6000 years old !!!!!eleventy-one!' kind. Woe. They even had a special section on how they weren't trying to get ID or creationism into Norwegian schools. Probably because they'd get laughed out of the country for the mere suggestion. They did proclaim Darwin evil, though. Snort.

I want to see the hardcore lot and take lots of pictures of them and their museums. WTF creationists, dude.

But it did put me in a very bemused mood for the rest of the day.

(I note here for the record that those who choose to believe God is behind evolution and whatever else - I don't share that belief, but I can at least see where it's coming from. Harcore creationists leave me with a sort of weird fascination and much merriment because wtf, truly.)

Is it wrong of me to want a book on creationism just so I can give it to my brother and watch him pick it apart? (Seriously, he has A Skill. He's made even Christians trying to convert him have doubts instead.) But I'd rather not have anything from them all the same, really. Ugh. Much too uncomfortable.

But of course, I had to go look at their website. And this church gives me the creeps. "Gays can be cured"? What's next, curing "Norwegianness"? Sure, you can make a choice not to act your sexuality, like being celibate and you can argue that sexuality is also tied to culture, but it is very much about how stuff is wired in your brain. There is much we don't know yet about how and why, because it is a controversial field of study, but that it also occurs in nature (penguins, ducks, sheep, bulls, great apes...) is a plain enough sign that there are biological factors also at play. Which means, yeah, it is a part of who you are.

(As [livejournal.com profile] lotus79 reminded me, we don't know just what causes autism, though genetics is suspected and no one's claiming autism is a choice. We still have so, so much to learn about the brain. It's not that weird we still have questions unanswered about something as complex as sexual behaviour.)

In spite of the acceptance that is available, however, the homosexual lifestyle often proves to be a painful and unrewarding way of life, particularly for older gays who are no longer desirable sexually.

Please fucking well back this up with facts or STFU, kthxbai. (Also in Norway, which is one of the more accepting countries around about this, gays and lesbians seem to get married and live happy old lives together quite fine and our society has not collapsed or changed that much at all, really. OMG SHOCKING.) Why is this train of thought still alive? Whyyy?

Then again, I wonder the same about hardcore "the Earth is 6000 years old, honest!" creationism. I mean... Whaaat? Seriously, what? All that effort, all that denying of sceience... Why? It's not like evolution means you can't believe in God, just means you have to consider him a more complex fellow than the Bible might indicate at times. And since the Bible was written by men trying to understand their idea of God 2000 years ago with what they knew about the world then, it's not like that is a great leap. So... Whaaat? (This is why I want a book, so my mind can boggle more. Good exercise. And I'm dying to see a creationist museum for sheer WTF factor.)

And I see they're anti-abortion too. Of course they are.

I realise from my place of atheist Social Democrat, and Norwegian to boot, I am not in great position to get it - but I do not even begin to understand some of this stuff. I Do Not Get It.

And you know, I'm kinda glad I don't at times.

(But boy, does it ever make me appreciate non-hating non-whaaat people of various faiths much more. A hearty hug to you all. Please be sane and loud forever. Yay.)

A dose of CSI wank )

Meanwhile, I am still boggling over the tale of MsScribe and there are still six chapters to go. Holy mother of socks. This is like an insanely addictive fanfic. Wow. I shouldn't be surprised at the things people do to get attention in fandom, but this one is... Yeah.

See CSI fandom, you have a lot to live up to still.

I should probably start preparing myself to cover Doctor Who wank as well. Oh yes. That is, if people are even interested.

Dear fundies whose drivel I read today )

Ahem. I might've gotten a bit worked up there.

On the bright side, had the most awesome feedback EVA and am tempted to stick it up here and just watch it all day. [livejournal.com profile] drakyndra, I so owe you a gazillion things for causing Rob Shearman to read my fanfic, because wow... *incoherent noise of obnoxious joy*

And I'm impressed 62.3% of you flist lot would do the Tenth Doctor. 11.5% thinks I should stop making puns. Now that is very sad. I feel crushed. (Statistics are fun, aren't they?)

Meanwhile, my dear Nick/Sara shippers, "They SO want each other" on pictures of Jorja and George being cute? Don't you start with the actor-characters confusion too, plz. Fandom's being wanky enough as it is.

Also, US administration, spare me this kind of pressure crap on Norway again. You were doing some of that same dance of 'might damage relations' pushy shit before the Iraq war and Norwegian opinion of the US administration *plummeted* and we didn't do what you wanted at all. Do you just not learn, or something? I stick a certain finger mightily in your direction.

*watches news and waits for news on whether or not Norway will have massive strikes starting this morning*

Oh, and thanks for the gift, [livejournal.com profile] slm4gsr

I've met A LOT of women in my life, and they all generally fit into the same mold. I've read anti-feminist books with scientific studies, talked to a lot of people, etc. I'm a Men's Rights activist. Therefore, I know a thing or two about women.

... It's amazing how much idiocy those two last sentences manage to contain. I'm astounded they've held up under the weight of it all. Also, you seem to have made your asshole talk. Try to shut it, yeah? There'll be a draft.

Tired. Long day. Saw Capote finally, and will now have to think about that one. Certainly didn't change my mind on one issue - I find the death penalty revolting.

Meanwhile, David Tennant is fucking hot. Also, by most accounts, not an asshole. Let's hear it for decent males!

Finally, we had another moose rampage.

And now I'm going to bed. Yay bed.
