Rachel Lucas on the not-getting-any-less-weird 'pregnancy pact' story:
I think everyone has completely lost touch with some of the positive effects of ostracizing people who do stupid, dangerous things. It’s not always bad to impose some shameful consequences, and if that’s one way to make these little psychos stop what they’re doing, then good.Exactly. For all the whining from the libs about the right victimising single mothers, they're can't hardly find anything crueller than their own sterling work in convincing young girls that getting pregnant at 14 won't destroy their lives better than getting hooked on crack.
This is one of the results of the fact that we’ve decided as a society that being “judgmental” is a horrible thing. Seems to me that people need to start being MORE judgmental. I’m doing it right now and it feels pretty good.
