Earlier this week, The Onion published another eyebrow-raiser: Actress' Abortion Written Into TV Show, with a photo of Leah Remini. Later that day, it changed without explanation into the much tamer Apple Unveils New Product-Unveiling Product. (link) Normally they never back down from a legal challenge or controversy, and good taste obviously isn't a factor, so I wonder why they changed the article. Thank goodness for search engines that archive content, huh? (link) Read it while it's still there.


Four Replies to Abortion Aborted

I'm honestly very surprised. Did they get too much heat from the get-go, about it, I wonder?

I'm not sure how I feel about it. It's International Woman's Day today, whatever that means, and I've read more hateful articles and opinions about women today than I have in the past few months. Girls are being suspended for saying the word "vagina," there's a Salon article about how many women in Iraq are being raped by their own U.S. military "comrades," and various other disgusting things.

Last week, Katherine Harris publicly denounced the first amendment, calling it "a lie" and said that we were supposed to be a nation of religious law. She also said that not to vote for a Christian is to vote for sin.

This isn't a very popular opinion these days, but it's from the heart: I'm getting terribly fed up with Christmas all around me, and being wished a merry Christmas dozens of different ways every day both verbal and non-verbal. Normally I think political correctness is a joke and the word "offended" is a thoroughly dead horse of a cliché, but I have no other word for how I feel than offended. I'm not Christian and want nothing to do with the holiday of Christmas. Go »
