NOTE: There were a couple of other photos on this post at one point that made speculations about the creator of the original billboard. While I could argue that they were protected speech under the parody or satire allowances, I’m not in the mood to get sued by a goon with a lawyer who takes all insults really personally. The remaining images do not make any judgments about the person who wrote the original billboard and my removal of the other images should be taken as a good faith effort to stay within the bounds of protected speech and not spread false information about an individual.
Amazingly, the biggest WTF of this week did not come out of Sarah Palin’s mouth or Anthony Weiner’s pants. Instead, the most jaw dropping tidbit to cross my browser is this:
Yes, this charming young man walked away from his Magick the Gathering cards in his mother’s basement long enough to pose for this photo which is arrayed across a billboard by the interstate in New Mexico. Greg [Last Name Redacted So He Can’t Find This Blog By Googling His Name], pictured here holding an imaginary baby, apparently was involved with a woman (I know. I can hardly believe it myself) and impregnated her (again, I can hardly believe it myself). The pregnancy was terminated, though there is some dispute whether it was a natural miscarriage or medical procedure that ended it, and Greggie took exception to the situation. So, he did what any COMPLETE FLAMING PSYCHOPATH would do and put the information on a billboard by the highway.
Jezebel did a pretty good write up of the situation, complete with some alleged background on the young woman to whom Gregster refers. I’m linking to it, though I’m a bit loathe to do so because the article reveals her name and some potential medical data about her that, while she may have shared it on a message board, is not really any of our business. Just like the fact that she was once pregnant by this guy is not our business only no one told Greggie-poo that and he violated her privacy with a giant fucking billboard that I would like to ram up his douche-filled ass.
OK. Calming down. I am REALLY pissed at this guy.
Greggie think the First Amendment protects him in this situation and maybe it does but common decency should have prevented him from behaving in such a callous and heinous manner. Decency should have given him compassion for a woman who did not carry a pregnancy to term and all the attendant emotional baggage of that. Decency should have alerted him to dangers of making her business known to her community and the possible repercussions to her family, her career, her mental health, her physical person. Decency should have kicked him in his worthless nuts and yelled “Only a fucknut of the highest power would think of doing such a thing to another person!”.
I think just desserts for this pile of excrement would be for his ex-girlfriend to put up a billboard about him. I took the liberty of mocking up a few ideas for her.
I really, really, really, hope that no woman ever sleeps with Greg the Douche again. He clearly doesn’t give a shit about his partners or their feelings. If he did, he would have spoken to her about her position on children, parenthood, abortion, and contraception BEFORE he allowed his dick to enter the picture. That’s the proper course of action, not this abomination of free expression. The First Amendment is to protect the populace from abuse from the government. Not to allow the populace to abuse each other in the most despicable ways.
