Trigger warning: the graphic below refers in parody to recent events, including Representative Todd Akin, Republican from Missouri, who recently made certain indefensible claims about rape not causing pregnancy. Following links in this article may lead to other articles that discuss these topics, and this one discusses them obliquely.
If you haven’t been following the recent upwelling of hatred defending itself with complete ignorance and masquerading as religious concern for life, start here.
The picture shows a young boy with a life jacket on standing on a dock holding an oar with a canoe pulled up beside him. The text in the graphic is below for those who can’t read it:
WE SHOULD BAN LIFE JACKETS & OTHER FLOTATION DEVICES
THEY ONLY ENCOURAGE RISKY BEHAVIOR. THE ONLY 100% EFFECTIVE WAY TO PREVENT DROWNING IS TOTAL ABSTINENCE FROM GOING IN THE WATER.
and if you do, by chance, find yourself struggling with drowning, then no life-saving otherwise procedure or act should be allowed to be administered. you got yourself into this mess, you have to live with the consequences.
YOU SHOULD SEE DROWNING AS A GIFT.
ALSO IF YOU WERE FORCIBLY PUSHED INTO THE WATER, DON’T WORRY. IF IT WAS A LEGITIMATE PUSHING, YOUR BODY WILL FIND A WAY TO SHUT OUT ALL THE WATER AND SURVIVE THE DROWNING.
