Chechnya now paintballing random women for “harassment fun”

11 Mar

Meanwhile, the 12-year-olds running Chechnya are spending their unemployed days trying to get some attention from the ladies:

Chechnya’s Kremlin-installed strongman Ramzan Kadyrov has ordered Chechen women to wear “modest attire” that covers their entire bodies, including their heads, whenever they go outdoors, and has sent vigilantes into the streets to attack disobedient women with paintball guns, according to a report just released by New York-based Human Rights Watch.

I sort of feel like the best way to deal with this is to ship a huge box of slingshots and spiky metal objects to Chechnya’s women. Remember ladies, aim for the nuts.

Seriously, though. It’s about time for some worldwide vigilante BATWOMEN to show up and wreak suffering on people like Kadyrov and his demon armies, specifically nut pain. Then film it, and we can all have a good laugh.

Catholic Church welcomes back woman repentant of her lame “equal rights” stance

28 Feb

I know picking on the Catholic Church is going after the low-hanging fruit, but this is just fun.

What’s the good news today? San Diego nurse Norma Jean Coon up and repented after joining the “Roman Catholic Womenpriests,” a group that, as its name suggests, conducts ordinations of Catholic women priests. The Church considers the group heretical.

Article writer Deacon Keith Fournier wants to remind us why this nice old lady was so wrong to begin with:

The arguments against this teaching [that only men can be ordained] sometimes come from people who do not understand that the priesthood is not a job and have succumbed to the “rights” mentality of the current age.

I’m glad someone out there still has the courage to take a principled stand against “rights” for people.

 

 

 

CA district attorney feels a woman’s life worth about $1000

25 Feb

Wow, I guess that whole thing about paying for maternity leave rubbed some California employers so much the wrong way they just went ahead and decided on a “death for pregnant women” policy.

In 2008, a pregnant 17-year-old farm worker collapsed on the job from heat exhaustion after working for nine hours without water or a break.

From the report by Change.org:

Even then, her employer, Merced Farm Labor, showed more concern for covering themselves than for her safety: the workers who took her to a local clinic were told to claim that Maria had passed out while exercising. Though clinic staff rushed her to the hospital upon seeing the dangerous state she was in, it was too late: she died of a 108 degree fever.

And now of course, this:

The adequate punishment for those who caused her death? $1000 and some community service, apparently.

That’s the sentence San Joaquin County District Attorney James P. Willett is considering in a plea deal for Merced owner Maria De Los Angeles Colunga, who was charged with involuntary manslaughter. Safety coordinator Elias Armenta, also charged, faces 400 hours community service and a $1000 fine.

Take note, employers: a thousand bucks and a stint with the local highway cleanup crews still works out cheaper than paying maternity leave if you just straight up kill your pregnant employees. Cost-benefit, America.
