Episode 121 – The One Where Jenn Sticks It To The Patriarchy

Waiting 4 Wrath - Episode 121 - The One Where Jenn Sticks It To The Patriarchy
In this week’s show, episode 121, The Grand Mufti’s labia are glued to an online preachers dick until they both leave Ark Encounter and vote PORP.
Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Dagda (The Irish-Celtic god of the earth and treaties) hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying his patience!
Shea’s Life Lesson
This week I learned that celery is 95% water and 100% not tacos.
Jenn’s Actual Lesson
Did you know recently passed actor Bill Paxton was raised a Roman Catholic by his mother? The star of Aliens, Titanic and Big Love seemed to find it…amusing.
“I was raised Catholic, and when we take communion, the wafer is a symbol of the body and blood of Christ. Somebody could think, ‘What the hell? There’s a guy on the cross, he’s been tortured and killed and these people are symbolically eating his body?’”
But before we get to all that, let’s have a beer!

Headlines

What The World Really Needs Is Another Feminine Hygiene Product Created By A Manbit.ly/2mxunBI
  • Chiropractor, “Dr” Daniel Dopps, of Wichita, Kansas, has invented super glue for the pussy to hold in that nasty, nasty period stuff
  • The still in development product is called Mensez Feminine Lip-Stick. Clever huh?
  • What it does is basically glue the labia minora together such that menstrual fluid is held inside until urinating, when the glue releases letting it all out.
  • This has understandably caused some uproar online with many accusing him of not understanding the female anatomy and straight up misogyny
  • I’m guessing this isn’t a product for those women who pee a bit when they sneeze
  • Responding to a commenter, he said,

“You as a woman should have come up with a better solution than diapers and plugs, but you didn’t. Reason being women are focused on and distracted by your period 25 percent of the time, making them far less productive than they could be. Women tend to be far more creative than men, but their periods that [sic] stifle them and play with their heads.”

From the ‘shocking but true’ file, Ark Park Not an Economic Boombit.ly/2m0Bm2I
  • The Ark Encounter theme park was partially funded with tons of economic incentives from Kentucky and Williamstown with the understanding that this big, new attraction would drive up local economic activity
  • Well, it seems it hasn’t turned out that way. Judge-executive, Steve Wood, said, ““It’s been a great thing but it’s not brought us any money,” How is that great now?
  • Right now, Grant county is on the edge of bankruptcy, to the point where there may be lost jobs.
  • Grant county has the same number of non-chain restaurants and hotels it had in Dec. 2015 even though they voted to make the county “wet” (which is also ironic since Hamm is a believer in non-drinking)

“I was one of those believers that once the Ark was here everything was going to come in. But it’s not done it. It’s not done it. I think the Ark’s done well and I’m glad for them on that. But it’s not done us good at all.”

Marital Rape is A-Ok in Ohioind.pn/2m0vOFJ
  • It is legal for a man to drug and rape his wife in Ohio as long as he doesn’t use, ‘force or the threat of force’
  • State reps, Reps. Greta Johnson (D-Akron) and Kristin Boggs (D-Columbus) tried to eliminate spousal exemptions for sex offenses.
  • According to the Akron Beacon Journal, “In Ohio, husbands or wives can rape their spouses so long as there is no force or threat of force. The “spousal exemption” means husbands can drug and rape wives, and avoid a first-degree felony rape charge.”
Rep. Johnson, a former prosecutor, said,
“Women and men experiencing sexual violence at the hands of their spouses should not be denied the right to seek justice just because they happen to be married to the offender.
I am appalled that there is not a larger discussion in our state about this issue. I am deeply disappointed that none of my Republican colleagues signed on as co-sponsors to this bill.”
It seems that as long as Ohio’s GOP is controlled by Christian zealots, women will remain 2nd class citizens.

This Week’s Stories

Jenn Doth Protest Too Much
Thanks to listener Alan for pointing me towards this story!
Mack Major, the living embodiment of ‘methinks he doth protest too much’.huff.to/2m0xTkS
Eden Decoded: bit.ly/2m0FRL0
An excerpt from Major’s book, Diva, Goddess, Queen: Breaking The Power Of Soul Ties, Lust And Sexual Demons.
“Many of you who are reading this have sex toys in your possession right now. And whether you want to accept it as fact or not: those sex toys are an open portal between the demonic realm and your own life. As long as you have those sex toys in your home, you have a doorway that can allow demons to not only access your life at will but also to torment you, hinder and destroy certain parts of your life as it relates to sex and your relationships.”
Another excerpt from a book called Hedonism: Destroying Demonic Sexual Strongholds:
“There are such things as sex demons. And the danger in masturbating is that one could inadvertently summon a sex demon to attach itself to you through the act of masturbating. And once that demon attaches, it is difficult to get it to leave. It will drive you to masturbate, even when you don’t want to. You’ll be hit with urges to play with yourself so powerful that only an orgasm will allow you some temporary relief.”

  • Forty-three former members of an evangelical church in western North Carolina say they were subjected to years of emotional and physical abuse, according to The Associated Press.
  • Ex-congregants of the Word of Faith Fellowship in Rutherford County told The Associated Press in on-the-record interviews that instead of finding inner peace and eternal life, they were regularly punched, smacked, choked, slammed to the floor or thrown through walls in the name of the Lord.
  • Victims of the violence, they say, included pre-teens and toddlers – even crying babies, who were vigorously shaken, screamed at and sometimes smacked to banish demons.
  • The Associated Press also obtained audio from what is called “blasting.” The Associated Press said a “blasting” is a verbal onslaught often conducted in hours-long sessions meant to cast out devils.
  • To hear the audio, click bit.ly/2m0HrfA (but really, you don’t want to…)
