Jim’s Good Gay News
The Simpsons episode Homer Phobia almost didn’t air – http://bit.ly/2kvVIU2
My good gay news is that it did because it made me want a custom car horn that plays Somewhere Over the Rainbow
Jenn’s Actual Lesson
Since I missed last week (the show before Valentine’s) here’s a late tidbit in honor of that holiday:
Did you know Pan, the goat-legged Greek god of nature, seduced the moon goddess Selene by wrapping himself in a sheepskin to hide his goat parts (bc I guess sheep is sexier?). He was then able to pull her from the sky and seduce her.
But before we get to all that, let’s have a beer!

Round Table Discussion
We don’t have any new ones but are going to have to send KingTorm that life extension technology we’ve been teasing Alex Jones with for upping their patronage!
Of course, if you’re not subscribing to Waiting 4 Wrath on Patreon.com/w4w then you’re missing out on longer shows that include at least a unique segment but often 15 to 30 minutes more show!
Not to mention episodes of our Pepitode show 4 More Beers, Episode 3 of which I just finished editing! By the time you hear this your ear holes should already be about 40 minutes of beer drinking goodness wiser!
Ok… not really… cause I did these show notes first… but you’ll totally be getting that email in like… soon… if you’re a patron… ~ A
Thanks to Matt from Atheism 101 podcast for joining us for furry Nazi’s last week. A101 just released their religious bullshit in February episode and I’d like to take a moment to congratulate Matt on getting the Blaze to evict his throat monster, I’m just sorry they had to jamb so many candles into him…
Speaking of furries jamming things into boxes, listener Fenrir (most infamous of the many wolves in Norse mythology) reached out to let us know that not all furries are horrible dickhead nazis
I’m a Canadian fur but unsure of numbers for the whole of Canada, but my province (Ontario) approx 1850 furs.
For the community in general, politically all over the spectrum, I have met Alt-left furs, as well as conservative furs (who celebrated the Trump victory *shudders*) The furry community at its heart are simply those who like anthropomorphic animal characters, such as Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde from Zootopia.
Not all of us have fursuits as they are quite expensive and many of us simply can’t afford the time nor resources to maintain one.
I found the community to be similar to the atheist community, lots of different views and opinions, and for the most part, we try to be rational and open.
Foxler from the story is not a representative of furs and most I know would disassociate themselves from him and his views. Also, most of us only roleplay as our fursonas within the furry community. Other furs have been in the community longer than I have, and have gone out in suit, and for the most part, have been well received by the general public
So there ya have it, from the wolf’s mouth. Furs are normal people who like to dress up as normal animals and have normal movie nights. If you’d like to know more — because our listeners are awesome — Fenrir has volunteered to try to answer questions about the furry community in the hopes of spreading a little knowledge about another marginalized group.
Speaking of voicemails, you can also send us texts like Matt… who said…
Hey, I’m not drunk but hello! Matt
Thanks, Matt, always a blast to have you on. Now we need to line up Tim lest the scales of atheist podcast be unbalanced…
Find both the guys at Atheism101Podcast.com
If the Drunk Dial line isn’t your favorite thing you can go to the website and leave us a voicemail just like Stevie did by clicking on the SpeakPipe sidebar item.
Unfortunately, it was a little garbled so we won’t play the audio, but we will say thanks for sending us some love!
We got a voicemail from German Denis – because we weren’t done with his kind nature!
We drank his beer, ate his candy and then demanded he call us and explains how to say words with backward letters. Fortunately, again, our listeners are amazing!
We’d like to mention ReasonCon again.
You’ll hear a jingle for it in this and random upcoming episodes as we prepare to go. If you’d like to help us survive the trip — I hear it’s hot and lice-y in NC, and shea’s pelt will need conditioner and tiny combs — you can get more wrath at Patreon, donate directly via PayPal or as some listeners have started doing, visit Amazon.com by clicking on the link on our website first. It won’t cost you an extra penny but Amazon gives us a little finders fee for sending you to them, it’s win-win.
And to our Canadian listener who asked and the hoards of other Canucks I’m sure are dying to know — yes, the Amazon link will work if you’re in Canada. We’re not 100% sure about other international listeners but there’s a good chance that if you can order through aAmazonat all, our link will likely work.

xHamster to the (sex) rescue – http://bit.ly/2kw2uJD
Utah’s legislature rejected the idea of adopting a comprehensive sexual education program to replace the existing abstinence-only stupidity
Porn site xHamster has decided to assist the state’s residents on that front
“Utahns consume the most porn per capita of any state, but have some of the lowest levels of sexual education,” xHamster says in a pop-up to the site. “We’re here to change that.”
Even though they acknowledged that their current program is having little effect in lessening rates of teen pregnancy and STIs, a change of system was voted down 12-2 along party lines.
HB215, sponsored by Rep. Brian King, D-Salt Lake City, which would have allowed for both abstinence-based and comprehensive programs, with parents able to select one of those options — or opt out completely — on behalf of their child.
“While we love porn,” the post said, “we don’t think that it should be relied on for sex ed any more than Star Wars is a substitute for science class.”
Utah Representative Let’s Holy Father Get The Bill – http://bit.ly/2kPtdNs
Utah republican representative, Jason Chaffetz, held a town hall meeting in Cottonwood Heights to a full capacity crowd. So full in fact that another 1500 people were left outside.
The meeting was full of people protesting Trump, his policies, and calling for Chaffetz, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, to investigate President Donald Trump
He told the Deseret News (Mormon’s own “news” paper) regarding the meeting, “Absolutely. I know there were,” he said, suggesting it was “more of a paid attempt to bully and intimidate” than a reflection of the feelings of his 3rd District constituents.
Some of the protesters took his bullshit to heart and decided to send Chaffetz an Invoice for their time.
- Line items: Paid protest hours 4 @ $100 per/hr.
- Fee for being callously dismissed by representative 1 @ $50
- Fee for being labeled out-of-state radical 1@ $50
- total $500
- Note: Thanks for bringing it to our attention that this was a paid event.
Evil (apparently) Does Die – http://bit.ly/2kw6hqq
Leslie Charping died in January, leaving behind a relieved family
In what may be the most honest obit ever penned, his daughter made sure that all who read it knew the true measure of the man.
I’ll just read it in its entirety to allow it to speak for itself:
“Leslie Ray ‘Popeye’ Charping was born in Galveston on November 20, 1942, and passed away January 30, 2017, which was 29 years longer than expected and much longer than he deserved. Leslie battled with cancer in his latter years and lost his battle, ultimately due to being the horse’s ass he was known for. He leaves behind 2 relieved children; a son Leslie Roy Charping and daughter, Shiela Smith along with six grandchildren and countless other victims including an ex-wife, relatives, friends, neighbors, doctors, nurses and random strangers.
“At a young age, Leslie quickly became a model example of bad parenting combined with mental illness and a complete commitment to drinking, drugs, womanizing and being generally offensive. Leslie enlisted to serve in the Navy, but not so much in a brave & patriotic way but more as part of a plea deal to escape sentencing on criminal charges. While enlisted, Leslie was the Navy boxing champion and went on to sufficiently embarrassing his family and country by spending the remainder of his service in the Balboa Mental Health Hospital receiving much needed mental healthcare services.
“Leslie was surprisingly intelligent, however, he lacked ambition and motivation to do anything more than being reckless, wasteful, squandering the family savings and fantasizing about “get rich quick” schemes. Leslie’s hobbies included being abusive to his family, expediting trips to heaven for the beloved family pets and fishing, which he was less skilled with than the previously mentioned. Leslie’s life served no other obvious purpose, he did not contribute to society or serve his community and he possessed no redeeming qualities besides quick witted sarcasm which was amusing during his sober days.
“With Leslie’s passing, he will be missed only for what he never did; being a loving husband, father and good friend. No services will be held, there will be no prayers for eternal peace and no apologizes to the family he tortured. Leslie’s remains will be cremated and kept in the barn until ‘Ray,’ the family donkey’s wood shavings run out. Leslie’s passing proves that evil does in fact die and hopefully marks a time of healing and safety for all.”

Lawmakers like to call pregnant women everything but human lately:
Pregnant women are “hosts” and their bodies no longer belong to them, Oklahoma State Rep. Justin Humphrey.
this is how Humphrey justified the unconstitutional bill he recently introduced, which requires pregnant women to get the fetus’s father’s permission to obtain an abortion:
“Ultimately, he said, his intent was to let men have a say. “I believe one of the breakdowns in our society is that we have excluded the man out of all of these types of decisions,” he said. “I understand that they feel like that is their body,” he said of women. “I feel like it is a separate — what I call them is, is you’re a ‘host.’ And you know when you enter into a relationship you’re going to be that host and so, you know, if you pre-know that then take all precautions and don’t get pregnant,” he explained. “So that’s where I’m at. I’m like, hey, your body is your body and be responsible with it. But after you’re irresponsible then don’t claim, well, I can just go and do this with another body, when you’re the host and you invited that in.”
The Slot – Women Are Hosts – http://bit.ly/2kw30Hr
Also, in our great state of Wyoming, our reps have been trying to push through a couple of new restrictive abortion bills
The Slot – Wyoming Votes Women Are Cattle – http://bit.ly/2kw22LA
“Five Republican men voted 4-1 in support of House Bill 116, which would make fetal tissue donation a felony, and House Bill 182, which would require doctors to offer women to hear the fetal heartbeat and undergo an ultrasound before receiving an abortion. The bills, which passed the House, now go to the Senate floor for a vote.”
The best part? They pushed it through the Senate Agriculture, State and Public Lands and Water Resources Committee. Because apparently, women are cattle or sage brush.
A third anti-abortion bill, House Bill 250, did manage to land where it was supposed to—in the Labor, Health and Social Services committee.

Faith In Humanity Restored
If Trump Won’t Give You Birth Control, Melinda Gates Will – http://bit.ly/2kw3YDI
She wants to provide contraceptive options to 120 million women around the globe by 2020.
The issue has been on the top of Gates’s agenda since 2012 when she co-chaired the Family Planning 2020 summit, a global event that brought leaders around the world together to talk about giving in-need women easy access to contraception.
“In the decade and a half since Bill and I started our foundation, I’ve heard from women all over the world about how important contraceptives are to their ability to take charge of their futures,” she wrote. “When women are able to plan their pregnancies around their goals for themselves and their families, they are also better able to finish their education, earn an income, and fully participate in their communities.”
Gates’s renewed vigor for this mission is likely linked to the current political climate. After being sworn in, President Trump signed an executive order reinstating a so-called global gag rule, which prohibits U.S. funding to clinics that provide abortion services overseas — Unfortunately, in many cases, that also means cutting off access to birth control.
“The decision about whether and when to get pregnant was a decision that Bill and I made based on what was right for me and what was right for our family—and that’s something I feel lucky about. There are still over 225 million women around the world who don’t have access to the modern contraceptives they need to make these decisions for themselves,”
