Sex is Like a Cup of Tea

How is having sex like having a cup of tea? If they wanted tea last week, does that mean they want it now? What if they wanted it an hour ago? What if they asked for it when they were awake, but now they’re asleep? Watch this (clean) video to find out.

America is Better than Everybody Else

If you haven’t noticed, we’re moving close to the Fourth of July, the American Independence Day.  While the phrase is rampant all the time, this is especially the time to hear, “America is the greatest country in the world.”

Ever stop to think how that sounds to non-Americans?  (Of course if you aren’t American, you have).  What does it literally mean?  It means Americans are better than everyone else.  In other words, every other country in the world is inferior to America.  It’s an insult to the world.

Do an online search for “Greatest country in the world” and (as of five minutes ago) you’ll see articles either saying America is the greatest or America is not the greatest.  They’ll almost all be about America.

America is a superpower.  Russian President Vladimir Putin recently said America is “probably the only superpower.”  But the “land of the free, home of the brave” is consistently not listed as the greatest in personal freedom, in economic freedom, in freedom of the press, in education level, in medical care, or in having law-abiding citizens (instead it has the highest prison population rate in the world).

But America is the greatest country in the world.  So is Russia.  So is China, and the United Kingdom, and Israel, and Egypt, and Iran and Iraq and every other nation in the world to someone.

If you want to praise America on the 4th of July, by all means do so.  But consider saying, “America is the greatest country in the world–to me.”

Where’s The Blogs?

As of right now, you may notice there’s almost a year gap between blog posts.  Yes, we’re aware of it, and yes, we’re working on it.  We had something of a glitch ($%&!#X!) in doing an update.  It’s in the process of being fixed, so please bear with us while we work to restore the missing posts.

In the meantime, feel free to check out those classic blog posts below

Update 2016 07 14 #2: A goof in our supposed fix didn’t allow any new comments on any posts, even the new ones (old ones often disallow comments to avoid spam buildup). We believe we have the problem fixed. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Breastfeeding Two Girls is Beautiful

Chelsea Craig, the mother in the images, is shown breastfeeding her two daughters, Addy and Emilynn, in photos taken by professional maternity photographer Mae Burke.

Photos of a mother breastfeeding her two daughters is going viral. The photos taken by Mae Burke show Chelsea Craig breastfeeding her little girls Addy and Emilynn.

Some people are upset because you can see her breasts, including her nipples in some shots, and some people are upset because one of her daughters is no longer a toddler. Well guess what? Breasts don’t have an expiration date. There’s no warning saying when you’re supposed to stop using them. And whoever decided women’s chests are sexy and men’s aren’t was probably a heterosexual man. Let’s get over ageism and sexism and let life be beautiful.

Women’s Chests are Obscene

Princess Unicornia (Lorien Loveshade) painted by Gypsie Skripto. Image had to be censored for  Discordian Wiki because it included painted nipples which staff considered violated Terms of Use.  The ToU doesn’t allow images staff consider to be “obscene or pornographic.”

“Who decided it’s OK for Vladimir Putin to parade around topless but not women? And no, this is not licentiousness, or sluttiness, or whatever. This is about fighting the message that it’s OK for society to sexualize women, but not for a woman to bare her body on her own terms.”

Gay Marriage in America Approved by Supreme Court

Public domain flag by Xxmandyx91xx for “straight people who very proudly support gay, lesbian, and bisexual rights and issues.”

In mid 1960s American television, a foreign man kissing an American man on the cheeks, or two American men almost accidentally kissing each other, were standard sitcom laughs. In the late 1960s, Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-in was considered cutting edge partially because of its gay jokes that much of the audience didn’t understand (“You don’t have to be happy to be gay.”)

In the 1970s, the two males Dan Aykroyd and Garrett Morris (playing a woman) kissed on the lips in a bit on the then controversial Saturday Night Live.  In 1981, Love, Sidney starring Tony Randall became the first American television program to center on a homosexual, although Sidney’s sexual preference was so downplayed many viewers didn’t even know the character was gay.

Today, in a split decision the United States Supreme Court declared that same-sex marriage is legal in all 50 American states and Washington D.C.

The ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges is likely to be considered one of the most significant decisions on personal rights in Supreme Court history.  National Public Radio’s Nina Totenberg said, “This is probably right up there with Brown v. Board of Education, and Roe v. Wade — if you like it or hate it — and today, Obergefell v. Hodges. This was a historic moment.”

The 5-4 vote largely centered on the 14th amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  Many supporters said the amendment, which is primarily known for eliminating slavery and for being cited in Roe v. Wade, guarantees citizenship rights and equal protection of the laws, and thus applies to marriage rights.  Many opponents claimed that the court overstepped its bounds in making a decision on marriage which is traditionally seen as the province of each individual state.

Time will tell if this controversial decision will be hotly debated 40 years later, as is Roe v. Wade, or will simply become a generally accepted part of American history, as is Brown v. Board of Education.

Thanks to Vernon K. Avaritt III for sharing the news of the decision with us.

Opinions of The Loveshade Family

“While I support the decision, I also support the idea of marriage not being defined or controlled by the federal government.  Personally, I’d like it to go back to the ‘old days’ and move it outside of government jurisdiction altogether, except for consensual contracts for such issues as custody of children, decisions of health care, and distribution of property.

In any case, if no one has yet resurrected the call for a constitutional amendment defining marriage as strictly one-man, one-woman in order to overrule this decision, I can guarantee it will happen very soon.  Ironically, many if not most of those who hold to that standard quote the Bible which describes many of the greatest biblical patriarchs as being polygamists.”  –Alden Loveshade

“I’ve said for years, ‘don’t make laws against love.’  You should be able to marry anyone you want.  This is a fantastic decision!” –Lorien Loveshade

“Maybe America is finally getting it together.  But I doubt it.  Just wait for the calls for Biblical marriage.  When they come, here’s what you tell those who support Biblical marriage.  According to the Bible, God’s perfect plan is for a man to produce children through sex with his sister (Adam and Eve); marry many woman (Abraham, Israel, David, Solomon, Jonah, etc.); marry his half sister (Abraham and Sarah); and to force young girls to marry the rapist who stole their virginity (Deuteronomy 22:28-29).” –Reverend Loveshade

PeTA Wiki Begins

The PETA Wiki (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has sat virtually empty and idle for years. But now it’s growing!

I, Miley Spears, recently adopted and rebooted the site at There’s not much there yet, so you can get in on the ground floor!

It isn’t a site for rants (except on your talk page). It’s for spreading and sharing information about PETA and other animal rights organizations, animals and animals rights, activists and causes.

If you want to help create a new Wiki for animals rights, sign up! If you’re already a wiki editor, you probably already have an account ( and a few other wikis use a different system). If you don’t have a wikia account, get one for free!

What’s THE Ideal Woman’s Body Type?

What is the one body type for women that everybody agrees on? You may have guessed there isn’t one. So why try being something you aren’t?

See the Buzzfeed video Women’s Ideal Body Types Throughout History.

See The Evolution of the Perfect Female Body.

And for men and women, can you guess the sport by the shape of the Olympian’s body?

I Lost My Brother

As I posted a link in my End of the Year Letter that my brother was in a nursing home/rehabilitation center, I should give this update.

My brother was transported to a hospital with breathing problems.  It got worse, and we got a call.  We had a very short conversation with my brother over the phone, a conversation mostly on our end.  A few minutes later we got a call back that my brother has passed away.

I miss my brother very much.

Why are Children Overweight? 95210

Why are American children overweight? Because they eat too much junk food and don’t exercise enough. Duh.

The obesity rate in children is four times what it was a few decades ago. Why?

I teach first grade and almost all my kids ride in a bus or a car to school. When I was a kid more of us rode bikes or walked to school in groups. I hear about all the TV shows they watch and video games they play which is too much. If you’re watching TV you aren’t exercising.

And more people eat more meals at fast food places that are high in fat, sugar, and salt and low in nutrients. And kids and adults eat too much food.

For kids, remember 95210 for each day:

9 hours of sleep

5 servings of fruit and vegetables

2 hours maximum of TV, video games and computer

1 hours of physical activity

0 drinks with added sugar
