tumblrbot asked: WHAT IS YOUR EARLIEST HUMAN MEMORY?
Who says I’m human?
Not too much that I need to say on this one. Just that you gotta’ love a “Christian” sex-toy shop.
Not that there is anything wrong with Christians using sex toys. Lord (Ra, Vishnu, Allah, etc…) knows that some alleged Christians could use a bit of warming up -hell, would YOU want to do Phyllis Schlafly or Rush Limbaugh??? (If you answered “yes,” GET OFF OF MY BLOG YOU DESPERATE SCHMUCK!) And it is difficult to imagine that some Christians do NOT have sex toys (Bill Clinton? John Edwards? Newt Gingrich…eww, sorry).
But let’s get real. A sex toy is a sex toy. There is no Christian way for an inanimate object to rub, plug, squeeze, or vibrate or for the toy to determine the religious affiliation of its user. The first page of the website does proclaim that it is a “Christian sex toy shop and romance site for married couples.” (I added the bold print), and the privacy page informs readers that “This site is for married adults over 18 only!” But do the really make you prove your marital status? (Sorry under 18 married. But look on the bright side, you are young and your hands don’t cramp as quickly as those of us a decade or two older).
Come on! It is what has existed for years, a discrete way for private/modest/ embarrassed persons to purchase racy lingerie and sex toys and related paraphernalia. And that is fine! If you live in a small town, there is no reason you need the store clerk or the mailman sharing your latest purchase of Emotion Lotion, or the knowledge that you are the owner of an appliance intended to make you “cream & scream.” I just question dragging God into the marketing plan. If you ask me, thinking of God looking down on you, or even you and your Christin spouse, while you are ‘gettin’ busy Xtian style’ is a real libido killer for me. After all, while I do love God, I don’t love Him/Her enough for a 3-way.
This week, the great state of North Carolina passes an amendment to their constitution prohibiting gay persons for marrying. Despite the fact that there was already a state law prohibiting such marriages, apparently some troglodytes were still living in fear that a gay couople might be able to share their love and live in wedded bliss. The law was not enough so Amendment 1 was needed to rub salt in the wound.
There is no hope for logical debate with person you thinks that their own heterosexual marriage it threatened by other people getting married. After all, we wouldn’t want to jeopardize Newt Gingrich’s third marriage or Rush Limbaugh’s fourth. Although, if the latter were truly concerned about a “war on marriage,” he’d have a little overworked heart to besotted heart with John Edwards regarding leaving one’s wife to die of cancer in order to run off with one’s mistress.
I tried transformative learning on my students and it worked! Just one problem; does anyone out there know how to turn them back from frogs to people before the semester is over?

Hi! I’m Kathryn (Kat) Robinson and this is my first non-work related blog. This may end up in an “about me” link at some point but for today I’m just eager to get going.
I have refrained from blogging before this because 1. not much interesting happens to me and 2. when it does, I’m damned if I want a lot of people knowing about it. Then it hit me, all those times that I bite my tongue so as not to offend and cause a meeting to go longer, that I yell at the TV, that I wish desperately that I could say something but know I’d get sent to “sensitivity training” if I did let loose? I have a place for those comments. If you enjoy them, great! However this is my therapy so I’m not worried if I offend, or the worse fate of bloggers, go unnoticed. It’s my blog and I’ll vent if I want to.
Since I am new to this and since this is more about me than others, I have a rather limited reply policy. At this point you have to follow for 2 weeks before replying. Maybe I’ll change it in the future, but for now that’s the way it is.
