This woman's work...

A bitch is annoyed. Since my ass strives to keep it very real at all times...

The Current Rules for Comments on a Bitch’s Blog
A bitch adores praise and encourages a lively debate. However, comments should relate to the topic of the post…or your ass will be corrected and a bitch don’t play. Kissing my ass then pimping your blog will not fly here...move on now...SCOOT!

Comments should not threaten anyone with hangings and such. This bitch is sensitive to references about the rope…violate and expect to be corrected by the sanctified delete option my ass has control of.

A bitch shall delete a comment if it reads like an advertisement. You will notice that some comments direct a bitch to another blog…that’s cool with me. But a bitch doesn’t need to buy any fans or auto parts or any such shit. This bitch is broke. Nuff said.

Moving on swiftly…

An Update on a Bitch’s Brother’s Job Situation
Thanks again for all the advice and information. A bitch has compiled a list of resources based on many of your comments. My ass is much more confident that my beloved brother shall find the ultimate autistic job placement shortly! Until then, Bill will be enjoying community activities. My ass will let y’all know as soon as Bill has a permanent placement…and a bitch will expect tons of blogger support for that business!

Anyhoo…

My ass is tired. This has been one long motherfucking week!

Let’s just jump right in, shall we?

Babies having babies...
As many of you know, this pro-choice bitch volunteers at several local women’s shelters. Many of the women are teen moms who have been thrown out of the house because their mother would loose her housing qualification if she had what the state defines as another family living in her home. Some have fled abuse or molestation. At one shelter, there are 10 moms and a waiting list of 200.

A bitch is often tempted to stay at home and watch American Justice on A&E. My ass is frustrated with all the babies having babies. But, as any community activist knows, once you jump into the fucking mud you have no delusions about whether it’s shallow or deep. Babies are having babies. Some are having them willfully, despite access to protection and sex education. Others are having them because that’s what girls do in their neighborhood at 14. Some have been raped and some don’t have any idea why they are having babies.

My ass is mad as hell about this shit. A bitch is pissed off that anyone would bring a child into the world without plans and hopes and love. A bitch is fucking pissed that so many of these young women have been molested and raped and have never been counseled. A bitch is mad as hell that bullshit religious protestors gather outside of Planned Parenthood instead of volunteering to teach a young mom how to balance a check book. And my ass is livid that churches in our community can spend Sunday after Sunday railing against gays and lesbians while not spending a second on family and parental responsibility.

This bitch volunteers every fucking week at shelters. Some of these moms are full of shit, don’t give a shit and don’t want my help. Some of them are so hurt by years of abuse that they aren’t ready to hear what a bitch has to say. And some of these moms blow a bitch away with their courage, tear at the ice covering my cold dark heart and inspire me.

When my ass hears about a “culture of life” this bitch actually gets excited. Maybe now there will be enough volunteers to read to each child at the shelter! Maybe now there will be enough pens and paper for the moms to take notes on basic budgeting! Maybe now we can support a full time rape counselor and sex education programs!

Yeah right…

It’s easy to blame "fucking" for the baby problem in the ‘hood. It’s easy to sit at the kitchen table and rant about condoms and the pill and freedom of choice. The hard part is getting off your ass and getting involved in some of these lives.

We can prevent unwanted pregnancy through education and access to birth control. There are options if you have unprotected sex and don’t want to get pregnant and there are options if you are pregnant and do not want to have a baby. The way my ass sees it, if the religious right wants to reduce abortions that is one goal and if they want to promote a culture of life that’s another…unless they value waltzing around the Planned Parenthood building on a random Tuesday more than supporting a young homeless mother.

Wanna take bets on who will be volunteering at the shelter next week?

Shark-fu said...

A bitch is going to open up a can of whoop ass and my ass can whoop some serious ass!

Stop posting bullshit ads on my site...stop! Go to Ann Coulter's blog, motherfuckers! That bitch loves the attention...

Lawd have mercy!

dmfinny said...

Unbelievable. Can't Blogger stop this shit?

Holy flaming bag of poop! WTF?!?

Jeff said...

"Comments should not threaten anyone with hangings and such...."

Not even Republicans? Pretty please?

Oh, all right, if you insist....

Sangroncito said...

Everyone's blogs that I visit are full of this spam shit. I switched to haloscan and that stopped it (although it erases all your past messages when you install it). Please, is there no damn relief from advertisements in this world, not ever on our blogs??? Do these idiot spammers really think we are going to click on their sites and buy their shit???
Anyway, another excellent post from you. You always make me think about important issues.
Have a great weekend, ABB!

Crystal-Lynn said...

Um, I work in advertising. Technically, so does ABB!

Crystal-Lynn said...

Clicked too fast ... anyway, real advertisers don't spam.

Regarding Bill's job, I think everyone should support the Chick-Fil-A store at the Chesterfield Mall. The reason for the layoffs is revenue shortfalls. Eat More Chikn people and maybe they'll hire folks back!!!

My youngest daughter was raped at 12 by a family friend (who denied it) and became pregnant. She was given the choice to either have the baby or abort. She chose to have the baby. We kept him and this year he will be 14. He is our joy. My daughter got counseling and all the family support we could get together. She got married at 16, finished school and had her 12th wedding anniversary last December.

Parents have to stand with their children. Bottom line.

BarefootCajun said...

Amen, ABB, and Amen Morgan!

I was invited to attend the Planned Parenthood meeting earlier this week but it was short notice and I couldn't make it. I WILL be attending the next one as a new volunteer.

Shark-fu said...

Amen Morgan. And people need to stand with each other.

Ditto on eating more Chic'n!

I thought I was becoming very popular when I started receiving all these anonymous comments to my blogs.... until I finally realized it was all SPAM!
Here in Hillsborough County, Florida... County Commissioners led by anti-gay antagonist Ronda Storms denied Planned Parenthood a measly $39,000.00 over a two year period which was to be used to fund a program in which Tampa teens teach other kids about such topics as sexual activity, drugs, gangs and family violence. GO FIGURE! No one seems to want to EDUCATE!

Turn on 'word verification option' under the 'comments' section. On your blog 'working area', go 'settings', go 'comments', click on yes at 'Show word verification for comments'.

At least that will keep the spider-bots from finding you for all those stupid ads.

I LOVE your blog. And todays post totally KICKS ASS!!!

Soulknitting said...

Sorry, I turned off my profile. I'm Kim from soulkniting.blogspot.com.

Soulknitting said...

Jes, do you think I could fucking type today? Kim - soulknitting.blogspot.com. I'm going to have a drink now.

PissedOffPencil said...

Here in Sweden, although education in sex-related topics are mandatory in school, we have seen an increase in teenage pregnancy the last couple of years.

Why? Because of cut-downs in the fundings that schools recieve. So, instead of paying taxes for better schools, we now pay taxes that go into the health care system for taking care of unwanted pregnancys and unnecessary abortions.

God, I was a lucky teenager having that particular time of my life before cut-downs!

I loved the way morgan expressed exactly what my father tought me: "Kids don't choose their parents and should always be welcome, no matter what the circumstances at the conception was."

I hope that I was able to express what I mean. :)

Shark-fu said...

Thank you Kim! A bitch will give it a try.

Hammer said...

Hey ABB, it's el Che (hammer). We met at the Sheehan vigil. Love your thoughts and willingness to share them. I also wanted to thank you for inspiring my blog (which you are referenced on!). SO thank you thank you thank you.

Peace

Shoes said...

ABB, great post, how about some info on how to get involved? Got some links? People think helping is a huge commitment but I'm guessing that any help is appreciated so let us know where and how to help, even if its once in a while.

Re: Blaming fucking for the babies having babies...

The problem is two-fold.

1. The welfare programs are structured in a way in which they can easily be abused. They are meant to be a leg-up, "assistance," not a way of life. In some instances it is a multi-generational problem. It becomes the only thing people know, as a means of survival. There should be caps/limits as to once you are on a program, limiting how many more children you have while on the program. I'm in no way suggesting a "Eugenics" type of forced sterilization to coincide with being on welfare, but there has to be an "indoctrination" as far as the welfare recipient's RESPONSIBILITIES while participating in these assistance programs, as well as how to use welfare as what it is intended as, a stepping stone to a better life... not the be-all-and-end-all to one's survival.

2. In cases of incest and rape, thus causing babies having babies... the penalties for the crimes of rape/incest (as well as other violent crimes) should be more harsh.
