Spreading the Disease from "Love"


Thanks to the Anonymous who posted this a few days ago!

"Article is about a woman who rushed to have TWO children after finding out she carried the same mutation Angelina Jolie did that led her to get a double mastectomy. She did it so she could enjoy as many Mother's Days as possible with her daughters (what a thoughtful and considerate woman). She did actually think a moment about the possibility that she could pass the same deadly mutation on to the girls, but that appears not to have figured largely, if at all, into her decision whether to have them in the first place. Well, at least she gratified her selfish "needs" by breeding. Here's how she closes the article:
"Sadie and Twyla are too young to know the full extent of our family history, or what they might face. They each have a 50% chance that they inherited the deadly mutation from me, but they won't get tested until they are at least 18. I try not to think about what those results may be."
That's right, lady. Just bury your head in the sand. After all, they'll have to deal with the fallout... not you."

  1. Hello Karl, I always eagerly wait for your new and exciting blog entries!

    The problem is that the rich and beautiful celebrities, pedestaled by their brain-dead worshipers, have this exaggerated notion of being invulnerable to life's infirmities and that their children would come to inherit their blessedness and be shielded from everyday problems by the sanctity of their "good looks."

    They create these artificial problems as a decoy to make us think that they share something of our existential absurdity.

  2. Mom did not know she was passing on a rare and horrible genetic disease to me. But she should have known...there were so many signs (for example she has abnormal eyes and mouth), but it was not "politically correct" for anybody to suggest that it wouldn't be right for her to have children. I have paid the price my whole life, a price I wasn't willing to pay. Genetic conditions are not something to play around with. A great rule of thumb...if in doubt, don't. If you have doubts that your genes are healthy then it's your responsibility not to pass them on. I am afraid that horrible genetic diseases are becoming more and more common as the world becomes more polluted and as society is brainwashed into thinking everyone should be having kids.

  3. The sacharine stupidity of this women just makes me puke. I'm so sick of people who worship who belong to maternity cults and worship motherhood as some sort of divine edict.

  4. What sacharine stupidity. Mindless maternity cult worship. If men are pre-programmed via the reptilian part of their brains to be violent and territorial, women are just as bad, pre-programmed to be heedless breeding machines. Can you really argue that one sex creates more misery in this world than the other? I think not

  5. Gah. Here's another brainless wonder who thinks breeding must be carried out at all costs, even to her own children.
