America Has Some Strange Double Standards For Feminism

The latest outrageously outrageous outrage in the 2012 presidential race is a Rick Santorum supporter and surrogate saying, on MSNBC, that in his day women “used Bayer aspirin for contraceptions. The gals put it between their knees, and it wasn’t that costly,” implying that women avoided pregnancy through abstinence.

See the video here.

It wasn’t a very politically correct way to put it(I think it’s unfair to hold that women only bear the responsibility for keeping it in their pants), but I’m not sure it warrants the outrage it has inspired among the left, particularly feminists. After all, abstinence is a sure-fire contraceptive.

But what’s interesting is that contemporaneous to this political scandal is a scandal in the entertainment industry. At the Grammy Awards last week, highly watched due to the high-profile passing of star Whitney Houston, singer Chris Brown not only won an award but enjoyed plenty of applause from the audience both for his award and his performance at the event.

This would be the same Chris Brown who, in 2009, plead guilty to doing this to his girlfriend, fellow pop star Rhianna:

Just so we’re clear, a man who praises abstinence (albeit in a not-so-politically correct way) and the candidate he supports for President are cast as dangerous extremists while a man who plead guilty to beating the tar out of his girlfriend wins awards and gets applause in the entertainment industry.

Aren’t double standards great?

      Who the spokesperson for Santorum or Brown?

      I am sick of political correctness and even Port for saying it was politically incorrect. It was a common saying in my day and it a common understanding that women mostly had control, they could resist and say no; and, unless you guys think every man is a potential rapist or that there was lots of rapes back then, it was a social truth, said in a light hearted manner and in no way was creepy or anti-women. If they shut their legs, meaning said no to sexual intercourse outside of marriage it was 100% effective in stopping pregnancy and venereal diseases.

        Just to be picky, even total abstinence is not necessarily perfectly safe.  It has been reported that certifiable virgins have become pregnant by, for instance, bathing in warm pool waters where men have been jacking off & doing assorted other indelicate things.  There is also the remote possibility of parthenogenesis, but no case of natural human parthenogenesis has been scientifically confirmed.

          Quote:

          Retired Marine and former Pan Am/Delta Pilot John Lovell is Top Gun at Subway Sandwich Shop
          Plantation, Florida:
          Last week police were called to investigate an attempted armed robbery:
          The 71-year-old retired Marine who opened fire on two robbers at a Plantation, Florida, Subway shop late Wednesday, killing one and critically wounding the other, is described as John Lovell, a former helicopter pilot for two presidents. He doesn’t drink, he doesn’t smoke, and he works out every day. Mr. Lovell was a man of action Wednesday night.
          According to Plantation police, two masked gunmen came into the Subway at1949 N. Pine Rd. Just after 11 p.m. There was a lone diner, Mr. Lovell, who was finishing his meal. After robbing the cashier, the two men attempted to shove Mr. Lovell into a bathroom and rob him as well. They got his money, but then Mr. Lovell pulled his handgun and opened fire. He shot one of the thieves in the head and chest and the other in the head. 
          When police arrived, they found one of the men in the shop, K-9 Units found the other in the bushes of a nearby business. They also found cash strewn around the front of the sandwich shop according to Detective Robert Rettig of the Plantation Police Department.
          Both men were taken to the Broward General Medical Center , where one, Donicio Arrindell, 22, of North Lauderdale died. The other, 21-year-old Frederick Gadson of Fort Lauderdale is in critical but stable condition.

          Mr. Lovell was a pilot in the Marine Corps, flying former Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. He later worked as a pilot for Pan Am and Delta Airlines.
           
          He is not expected to be charged authorities said. ”He was in fear for his life,” Detective Rettig said, “These criminals ought to realize that most men in their 70’s have military backgrounds and aren’t intimidated by idiots.” 

          Something tells me this old Marine wasn’t ‘in fear for his life’, even though his life was definitely at risk. The only thing he could be charged with is participating in an unfair fight. One 71- year young Marine against two punks. Two head shots and one center body mass shot.
          Outstanding shooting! That’ll teach them not to get between a Marine and his meal. 

          Florida law allows eligible citizens to carry a concealed weapon. Don’t you just love a story with a happy ending?

          Semper Fi Marine!
          Old people don’t fight, they just shoot you!

          • ellinas1

            No, not like you my friend. Not like you.

            Now this Mr. Lovell is my kind of man. A hero in my eyes.
            Those punks will not rob anyone anymore. He sent one to meet his maker and probably put the fear of God in the other.
            I love stories with good endings.

      Jihad in Thailand:
      Iranian Terrorists Partied with Whores Before Jihad, Fifth Iranian Terrorist Sought
      The Iranian terrorists who targeted Israeli diplomats and tried to blow up Thai landmarks but blew themselves and their factory up instead were partying with whores the night before their jihad. Preparing for their 72 virgins.

      Thailand seeks 5th Iranian terrorist.
      Here’s the latest from our SIOA eyes on the ground:
      Hi Pamela, From RV in Thailand
      Photos show that as they were in Thailand making bombs to assassinate Israeli diplomats, the Iranian terrorists rented Thai bar-girls and partied hard in the wild and famous resort town of Pattaya. This distinctly ‘unholy’ behaviour by religiously motivated Islamist supremacists might come as a surprise to many, but to the informed it follows a familiar pattern.
      History has shown that Muslim terrorists and suicide bombers frequently have ‘wild nights’ before embarking on their fatal or potentially fatal missions.
      A little online research shows much evidence that the 9/11 hijackers and other Muslim terrorists were into drugs, alcohol and prostitutes in the run-up to their murders for Islam. Apparently everything is forgiven by Allah when killing infidels.
      “Given the status of women under Islam,”
      it is no surprise though that the female terrorist with the Iranian group in Thailand wasn’t invited to the wild night in Pattaya. How typical for Muslim women according to Islam:
      Always property, never an equal partner even in terrorism

            John the Apostle (Aramaic Yoħanna, Koine Greek Ἰωάννης) (c. AD 6 — c. 100) was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus. Christian tradition holds that he outlived the remaining apostles — all of whom suffered martyrdom (except Judas Iscariot) — and ultimately died of natural causes “in great old age near Ephesus” at the beginning of the second century. The Church Fathers consider him the same person as John the Evangelist, John of Patmos, and the Beloved Disciple.

            You are correct. None of the Apostles died at  the ripe old age of 110.

        7P62: Ellinas below is as wrong about this issue as he is consistently wrong about the Christian faith. It is no surprise to me, as I have recently discovered anti christian things, like he believes the Apostle Paul, despite being led and anointed by the Holy Spirit as Apostle to the Gentiles (world), was absolutely wrong about homosexuality being a sin, as science to Ellinas, has proven homosexuality to be innate, even though they have not. He even allows for people to be saved outside of faith in Christ and being born again,  thinking that people like Gay Bob, that has confessed he is not a Christian at all, really is a Christian and will gain Heaven based on his good works, outside of Christ; and that, he is a better Christian than most Christians, because of his innate goodness.

        Having studied the Qur’an and Hadith in some detail (no scholar) as well as other writings about Islam, these falsely called holy books are replete, from cover to cover with commands to kill infidels, to destroy and annihilate the Jews, to commit acts of rape, torture and murder in the name of their pig moon god –  Allah (I have included many quotes here at SAB). While in the New Testament there is absolutely no divine warrant of any kind for any Christian to commit any such acts. So, while to do theses things in Almighty God’s Name is sin (including murdering children in the womb), for Muslims to do them in Allah’s Name, these murderous Muslims will be rewarded.

        Sorry, I mean him no ill will, I am confident he is just terribly ignorant and woefully misled by the Prince of this wicked earth; but please pay no attention to Ellinas on such spiritual matters, he is at best an unknowing apostate to the Christian faith, now being a practical atheist and though he would deny it, in many, many ways an enemy of Christ.

          I as well wonder if “the Spirit of Truth” will ever interpet Scripture for these leftist social justice worldly kingdom types. but Jesus answered that in Big John didn’t He. “If they know Me not” they can’t recieve My Spirit either…Sad to see christians decieved like this but God Himself said He would allow the deception so the lost would believe the lie…
          E means well IMO on alot of things but his strong disliike and rejections of God’s challenge to be Holy for He is Holy instead of man dragging God down to their sinful condidtion, along with distain for God’s Holy Law and Word shows his true inner self, again JMHO, and not sitting in eternal Judgement on him…alot of fellow travelors like him will wake up one day in the “goat pen” I am afraid…
          Relying on works and mans understanding instead…I pray he reads it in Greek and really understands it some day, but only if it is Gods Grace and Will for him to recieve the Truth..

          • Neiman

            The Nazi’s meant well, the Communists meant well, many people mean well, while they do most grievous harm. So, his meaning well falls on deaf ears with me. Especially since his well meaning tells a Gay Bob or gays they can be saved by good works and do not really need to believe in Christ. He is, as a dear minister once told me, politing people into hell and so, please forgive me if I have little regard for his being well meaning.

            As to sitting in eternal judgment, I agree that would be wrong; but, surely if the signs indicate that is where he is headed and that he is leading others there, should we not at least oppose him and expose his errors for the sake of his everlasting soul? Or should we stay silent and leave him to his fate? What would Jesus do?

            I hoped beyond hope that he was a carnal Christian only, one tripped up by the errors of his Orthodox (legalistic) Church. I have tried in vain to make him face the fact he supports a party of child murder and that he cannot escape being an accessory to those murders. I have tried to force him to face the fact that a man he calls brother, is by his own admission not a Christian, of another spirit that opposes Christ and that Gays need repentance and salvation in Christ, all to no avail, his forehead being calloused, having a stiff neck. I hoped to speak in blunt terms would shake him out of his spiritual lethargy, but every attempt has failed to find the slightest common ground. So, to me he seems at best an apostate and I fear not a born again believer and is lost and that I deeply regret, as it makes me sad he could go into eternity thinking himself saved and be awakened by a Judge upon God’s Throne that casts him out.

            By the way, I think you’ll find my post today on Christian parents being child abusers of interest.

          • ellinas1

            I do not reject God and Jesus. Being Greek Orthodox in faith, I interpret the Bible and worship differently than Neiman and possibly you.
            Mind you, I bet you that 99% percent of what I believe about God, His Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit is the same as what you believe. The differences are minuscule. Theologians, preachers, priests, learned secularists, university professors, and in some instances the Apostles themselves disagreed on various aspects of the Christian Faith.
            If they could not, and still to date cannot resolve the differences how are we going to do it?
            1% of the Biblical truth we interpret differently, and we are ready to cut off each other’s head. 
            That is a damn shame.

    This shows the ‘layering” accomplished on the whitehouse published birth certificate. Very interesting Adobe Pro is a great tool. :)

    PROOF ITS REAL? OR PROOF IT ISN’T?

    1. Back in 1961 people of color were called ‘Negroes’. So how can the Obama birth certificate state he is ‘African-American’ when the term wasn’t even used at that time?

    2. The birth certificate that the White House released lists Obama’s birth as August 4, 1961. It also lists Barack Hussein Obama as his father. No big deal, right? At the time of Obama’s birth, it also shows that his father is age 25 years old and that Obama’s father was born in “Kenya, East Africa”. This wouldn’t seem like anything of concern, except the fact that Kenya did not even exist until 1963, two whole years after Obama’s birth and 27 years after his father’s birth. How could Obama’s father have been born in a country that did not yet exist? Up and until Kenya was formed in 1963, it was known as the “British East Africa Protectorate”.

    3. On the birth certificate released by the White House, the listed place of birth is “Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital”. This cannot be, because the hospital(s) in question in 1961 were called “KauiKeolani Children’s Hospital” and “Kapi’olani Maternity Home”, respectively. The name did not change to Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until 1978, when these two hospitals merged. How can this particular name of the hospital be on a birth certificate dated 1961 if this name had not yet been applied to it until 1978?

    Why hasn’t this been discussed in the major media?????

      This just begs me to ask the question, “WHY”?

    Never mind the inconvieneit “FATHER WASN’T EVEN AMERICAN” making Barry a “dual citizen”…..Thus not even eligible to begin with……Don’t ya suppose just “maybe” (someone) in DC would contest ANY of this? Multiple SS numbers used. Name never changed back from Barry Soreto to BO Jr. to eliminate his Indonisian citizenship to even make him a “naturalized” citizen again..What do you think is going on in DC these days sheople?

    Even tho PDF files that do the same on every document used to give credit to the White House document that don’t explain the in-consitencies when the info on them “transcend” time and space.
    Folks on the left are so PC they won’t even write NEGRO for Race. As well they give the name of the birth country of Sr. the name it recieved two years after the document was suppose to have been issued.
    For “every” lie they tell the “coverup” can be found…..

    WHAT WAS THE NAME OF THOSE HOSPITALS AGAIN?

    • Calthropeallan

      While I have always been suspicious of the Obama birthcertificate,please take note that Obama Sr. was a radical and would call himself a “Kenyan”. He might have been a co- founder of the term African- American. Many radicals in Africa,or the world wide called, or call their potential country by the name not in existence yet..

     There are literally dozens of GOP politicians who have gone to court for beating their spouses, they are still allowed to be douche bag politicians.

    If you think you made a point, let me tell you that you haven’t.

    Rick Santorum must face the consequences of his actions and statements.

    Chris Brown faced a court of law and was sentenced and faced the consequences of his action.  There is no double standard.

    Brown’s plea to a felony charge will subject him to substantial
    scrutiny by probation officials, and the judge’s order puts the kibosh
    on any short-term prospects for reconciliation with his pop diva
    girlfriend as well.

    The guilty plea came before a preliminary hearing was scheduled to
    start. The hearing had been billed for weeks as a public face-off
    between the pair, with Rihanna set to testify against her one-time
    boyfriend.

    Instead, Brown averted the potentially damaging meeting by entering a
    plea that will subject him to probation for the next five years as well
    as force him to perform six months of community service.

    Mark Geragos, Brown’s lawyer, said the plea represented the singer
    taking responsibility for his actions — which included beating, choking
    and biting Rihanna during a fight early Feb. 8, according to police.

    After Brown left the courtroom, Rihanna entered and was addressed by
    Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg, who explained to the
    Barbados-born singer that she had issued a stay-away order.

    Rihanna had not been seeking such an order, but the judge imposed one
    anyway. The order requires that Brown and Rihanna stay at least 50
    yards from each, except at industry events when the distance is reduced
    to 10 yards.

    Anyone who is talking about the Constitution, communism, gun rights and corruption in DC homeland security branded enemies of the state and possible domestic terrorists..

    Beck…Napolitano…even Pat Buchannan.
    Only leftist team players will soon be left supporting Democratic agendas and “quite” all this constitution and Liberty talk..No room for TRUTH or dissent…
