So there was this really horribly offensive Dodge ad played during the superbowl where yet another series of "emasculated" men bitched about how they had to carry their girlfriend's lipgloss and that entitled them to drive a big boy car.

Well, it was just aching for a response. Ladies!

"Hey, why haven't you said anything about the whole Roman Polanski debacle? Isn't that sort of something you would normally talk about?"

"Because I've been a) busy and b) people smarter than me have said it much better. Besides, I think Jay Smooth of ill doctrine sums it all up the very best:"

Life grows more interesting by the day for officials of the West Bend (Wis.) Community Memorial Library. After four months of grappling with an evolving challenge to young-adult materials deemed sexually explicit by area residents Ginny and Jim Maziarka, library trustees voted 9–0 June 2 to maintain the young-adult collection as is “without removing, relocating, labeling, or otherwise restricting access” to any titles. However, board members were made cognizant that same evening that another material challenge waited in the wings: Milwaukee-area citizen Robert C. Braun of the Christian Civil Liberties Union (CCLU) distributed at the meeting copies of a claim for damages he and three other plaintiffs filed April 28 with the city; the complainants seek the right to publicly burn or destroy by another means the library’s copy of Baby Be-Bop. The claim also demands $120,000 in compensatory damages ($30,000 per plaintiff) for being exposed to the book in a library display, and the resignation of West Bend Mayor Kristine Deiss for “allow[ing] this book to be viewed by the public.”

I'm sorry, I just. What? They want the right to burn the LIBRARY'S COPY OF THE BOOK? Really? WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?

I'm going to have to re-read my copy of Dangerous Angels with Baby Be-Bop, and thus expose myself to this "explicitly vulgar, racial (what the hell does that even MEAN?) and anti-Christian" work.

Hey asshats! I lent it to my 14-year-old sister and she LOVED it and lent it to HER FRIENDS. I'm in ur skools, corruptin' ur kidz....
