So, rape is useful?

A rape victim is bound to respect the opportunity that some freak gave her to have a baby?

 ??? ???

Does not compute.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

The baby is not hers, but belongs to God and to himself (a separate person). It is unfortunate that the rape happened, but now we are dealing with another person and we can't just kill that person and turn ourselves against life itself. It's not like the woman dies if she gives birth to the baby; she can even offer him for adoption if she unable to look after him. It is the most horrid and selfish thing to simply kill him because he is an inconvenience, an undesired object instead of a life, an individual.

:D :P

One of these days we're gonna have to have a thread on how the media (especially magazines and such) portray women. I don't think that it sets an impossible ideal/standard to meet, as is often said, or at least shouldn't, since everyone already knows that the women in these pictures have professionally done makeup, hair, wardrobe, lighting, photography, etc., and then things are further "perfected" using photoshop. People should take such things about as seriously as hentai when it comes to expectations of what women look like. Anyway... maybe after the Clean Monday break...

I was super fortunate to find the coffee table book they made of the whole collection (not all are in color) in a random used book store while on vacation. 

It's fabulous, and amazon does have some..
