School uniform debacle...

Meanwhile a schoolgirl has been told she can't wear some silly ring certifying she isn't going to have sex until she's married. Apparently this is an infringement on her human rights. Eh? Is she being tortured? Has she been forced to recant her beliefs under threat of violence? No. So where's the human rights issue? Apparently it isn't fair that Sikhs can wear turbans and yet she can't wear her jewelry. Hmm. Surely the issue of school uniforms is one for the school to decide. If they decree she can't wear jewelry, why doesn't she just do what her teachers tell her?
Her lawyer is also objecting to the school claiming that the ring isn't an integral part of Christian faith. Which it obviously isn't as most Christians don't wear them. But he's questioning their right to make doctrinal claims. Why, exactly? Given that the whole subject is one of superstitious nonsense, then all claims are equally absurd.
And I managed to write all this about a ring without once slipping in an anal sex joke. Albeit not for want of trying...

I saw a picture of her. It made me want to fuck her.

The story also made me wonder if she makes a big deal out of school uniforms being a mixture of polyester and cotton, what with Leviticus 19:19 and all.

Puskas! So so Sorry I've been out of touch. School year nearly over and right now that's a real blessing - believe me!

When are you going away? When are you free? Which festies are you to this summer (if any?) Why weren't you in Buda this Easter??

Last link wasn't complete. A bug at Blogger? It's the Conway story in the Times.
