…the bigger the hoopty.
I am not sure if this is a regional phenomenon or if it’s a widespread epidemic. There seems to be a distinct relationship between bumperstickers and cars. Primarily the bumperstickers screaming a pro-life agenda or screaming about how science is evil. On my way to the pharmacy for a refill, I had the esteemed privilege of following a raging pro-lifer who also wants to end fetal testing. Of course, it was on a piece of shit, Sanford and Son mobile that was held together by duct tape and driven by a knuckle-dragging, frizzy haired inbred with a tremendous underbite.
Yes. This is exactly the type of person who deserves a say on all things scientific, amirite?
What kind of Good Christian would wish a debilitating disease like Tay-Sachs on anyone (parent or child)? Are these people so fucking clueless that science is now, officially, the root of all evil and that humans should needlessly suffer because some mystical book says so?
Now, I realize that I’m a Mid-Atlantic, Liberal Elitest who grew up on the periphery of a big, big city among those who can fucking read and marry someone with a different surname, but surely geography isn’t the driving factor in one’s intelligence. Or is it?
To those who eschew science in the name of the LAWD, here’s a bit of advice: don’t want the tests? Don’t have them. Carry on and pray for our condemned, technology embracing souls. Don’t foist your bullshit, neaderthalic beliefs on those of us who do.
And…for fuck’s sake…buy a goddamned car that is road worthy. Not only are your beliefs scary but so is sharing the road with you.
