    ferst

  3. 1. really not that lame to me
    2. Kyle made my day, and a nice come back from Jessica
    3. HAHAHA

  4. Nair is dangerous stuff. It completely destroyed my legs the one time I tried it. I can’t imagine the damage it’d do to more sensitive areas! I would probably get along with Blake’s uncle though.

  5. 1. Not such much lame…just makes me a little sad.
    2. Meh.
    3. I accidentally got Nair on a sensitive part once. Jesus laughed at my stupidity…and my tears.

  6. First one isn’t lame at all. The kid could very well be a sibling she took shopping with her.

  7. First one isn’t lame… so she has a kid. Obviously she stayed in school if she’s going to prom, and she takes her son out shopping instead of dumping him off on someone else. Nice dress, too.

  8. Even if the kid is hers, who cares I say good for her for finishing highschool anyways.

  9. whoever submitted the first one is lame.

    enjoy your prom nichole!

  10. Hey, as long as there’s ‘lame’ in their somewhere, it belongs on the site. :)

  11. Nichole honey, please dont choose the sparkly coral pink frou frou dress.

    Carrie wore a coral pink dress to her prom, and we all know how that turned out….

  12. The only weird things about the first one is the kid is sitting up really straight to where it’s like he has no neck and he has one pant leg rolled up….

  13. The kid can be a sibling, someone she’s babysitting, a nephew who’s with her and her sister shopping, etc. The dress, however, is fugly.

  14. I’m sure that dress would look great crumpled into a ball on my floor with her nekkid on my bed. Just sayin’.

  15. krasivaya_devushka

    hahaha @ blake!!

  16. glitterandtrauma

    I have never used nair although I have used veet which is the same sort of thing. It’s fine on your legs but leaves a few stray hairs sometimes but really do not use it on more sensitive areas. It hurts like a bitch and can ruin your weekend.

  17. Kyle hahaha

  18. /rant
    OMG There’s a teenage girl with a small child in the background while she’s taking pictures! How lame! T
    here’s a couple of these which are funny, lame or sad (such as when the teenager or especially if it’s not a teenager is trying to take sexxxxyyy pictures of themselves and their child is in the background) but taking a picture with your child in it isn’t lame.
    But mainly, it’s not lame and is just repetitive and boring.
    /end rant

  19. I think Jessica may have a serious skin problem. Either that or she’s Smurfette, but then I don’t think she’d have much trouble staying in a relationship given the gender balance of that community.

  20. YAY for Blake.

    Now he can sun tan where the sun don’t shine ;)

  21. Teo I think staying in a relationship has to be the hardest thing to do in that community… 1 smurfette for thousands of smurfs? Talk about competition…

  22. Nair is very very dangerous stuff, got a bad chemical burn from it once. Doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use it, but just be wary, and try a small area first.

    Man, these comments pages seem so much cleaner and easier to browse now

  23. That’s a good point…one forgotten anniversary and it’s on to the next Smurf in line.

  24. If she’s going to her senior prom, she’s too young to be having kids. So it’s lame alright.

  25. If I were 25 years younger, I’d take the girl in #1 to prom.

  26. krasivaya_devushka

    I tried Nair once, too, and yeah…it was horrible!

  27. OMG IT’S TOTALLY NOT HER BROTHER OR SOMETHING AMIRITE????

    Obviously all teenagers are whores who make babies in highschool. They totally don’t have older siblings with children or much younger siblings. Obviously this picture means that ~MY GENERATION IS GOING TO HELL LOL~.

  28. nair=swore my girl had pissed in my shower.. that chit smells disgusting.. amonia death.

  29. I wish I had an uncle like Blake’s

  30. One of my friends got drunk, waxed her bikini line, and naired the left-overs… haha she couldn’t wear underwear for a week…

  31. Why is Jessica’s relationship update from 5 minutes ago, but Jennifer and Kyle made comments more than 5 minutes ago? Photoshopped?

  32. shtick- actually you can be old enough to have a kid and go to prom it happens all the time, there are many possible reasons like maybe she didnt finish highschool on time for some reason. So really the only thing that is lame here is you. Also so what if it is her kid and she is 18, shit happens and you have to make the best of it, good for her and getting her schooling done.

    That is my rant sorry everyone.

  33. Good point knobjockey, I didn’t even notice the times on the post.

  34. MsBuzzkillington

    Yeah, those timestamps are way off. Weird.

    I have used nair before. Didn’t have a problem on my legs. I was young and dumb so I tried it on my arms, stuff burned me bad. But it was weird because it looked like I had 100 scratches all over my arms.

  35. @Buzz, babe, where it says ‘scrape off gently’ it doesn’t mean ‘with razor blades’… ;)

  36. @msbuzz – thats what it did to my legs. It’s like it turned my hair into little acid knives that cut slices ALL OVER my legs. Then all the tiny slices scabbed over – it was somewhat traumatic. Lesson learned: DON’T use Nair if you have sensitive skin!!

  37. I’d imagine that it would be her child. I mean, the person who submitted it most likely knew her unless her profile wasn’t private; so they really should have known if she was a mother or not.

    Like most people said though, at least she’s still in school and it looks like she’s taking care of her baby, whereas some of the mums that get submitted to this site (teenage and otherwise) make me weep for their child’s future.

    Plus, it’s a nice dress.

  38. Yeah, first one isn’t lame. My mom had me in high school – the only thing that means, is that 1. she didn’t have an abortion (yay for me), and 2. she got her diploma (yay for her). I respect her more for having a child, staying in school, and not dumping the kid off with her parents and acting like she doesn’t have a kid. So, kudos to her, and boo to Lamebook for trying to ostrasize someone whom probably gets enough shit already as it is.

    2nd one is OK.

    3rd one… who *hasn’t* tried Nair where they shouldn’t? Either through hope of getting rid of unwanted hair, or as a dare, I think everyone has tried it at least once, yes?

  39. PS Nair + taint = agony

  40. PS Nair + nipnips = fuck Nair.

  41. I have a Nair story…But this post isn’t labeled NSFW.

  42. Would everyone please stop kissing worpervert’s ass cheeks…
    I am sick and tried or reading “thanks word for coming back”…

  43. I do love the album title in the 1st one. It so perfectly encapsulates the photo.

    Using Nair is just like playing the guitar. You have to build up callouses. I used to be like a Wookie doll, but now I’m Ken doll all the way.

  44. dad, mom’s locked up again, needs bail.

  45. waiter, there’s no hair in my soup

  46. I told that bitch not to sell drugs close to police line…
    Now we don’t have a choice but to mortgage our prized dildo collection to make bail… Damn! I had so many plans for the new anal prober this weekend.

  47. dad! i’ve been using those instead of legos. buy me some fucking toys!

  48. Son, if you want toys then I guess you too have to do what I did when I was your age and really wanted that Marlyn Monroe doll. I serviced the old ladies in our block… Couple of times I had to oblige the priest as well but hey, trust me, it hurts way less when you keep picturing the Lincoln on the crispy $5 note…

  49. /rant

    Stop defending teenaged whores who get pregnant in high school. Yes, it’s great that she’s finishing, but that doesn’t excuse her mistake. That’s like saying “Oh yeah, he was so drunk that he totaled his car in a crash that killed a small child. But he’s in rehab now, so good for him.” See, that doesn’t undo what he already did.

    So it’s not okay just because she’s finishing high school. For all we know, her grades are shit, and she leave her kid at home with her parents all the time while she goes out and socializes! If I’d had a kid at that age, I would never have seen my friends again. In fact, I’m pretty sure my parents would have made sure I never saw the light of day.

    The point is to be responsible BEFORE you make the mistake. THAT is where it counts. Being responsible AFTER you make a mistake is not a magical mistake eraser. You still did something bad! I do not wish you a happy prom! In fact, you should be taking care of your kid, not going to prom and then having more premarital sex afterwards! YOU LOSE!

    /end rant

  50. that is an awful analogy

  51. @muepsilongamma, is that experience speaking?

  52. yeah, just so we’re clear, you’re equating bringing a child into this world with removing one from it?

  53. i mean, my father’s done both. but i don’t think they’re really the same thing

  54. @muepsilongamma… luckily, most teenaged parents still have a chance to learn and grow, and hopefully make smarter choices as they mature…

    you, on the other hand, are destined to be a kunt forever.

  55. @49… luckily, most teenaged parents can go back to school and continue to grow, making smarter choices as they mature and learn from their mistakes…

    you, on the other hand, are destined to be an arsehole forever.

  56. God damn it, YOINK beat me to making a funny comment. World’s gone upside down…

  57. I find it hard to believe that some people don’t think there is anything unusual about a girl bringing her young son with he to try on prom dresses.

  58. djenna8girl, that’s the new “choose your own adventure” commenting style, right? those are my favorites! i choose – “arsehole!”

    ah, dammit, i’m in locked in the dungeon, again.

    i suck at these things.

  59. I love how everyone jumps down my throat just because I’m conservative. I have different beliefs than you so all of a sudden I’m a “kunt” and an “arsehole.” No I do not speak from experience in this. I never had a child in high school because, well, I was smart. But don’t tell me that you think what I said was incorrect. It’s true, you can’t undo the mistakes you make. Murderers and rapists don’t get out of jail time because they say “I’m sorry.” And don’t use the “you’re equating teen pregnancy with murder” argument because it doesn’t work. A wrongdoing is a wrongdoing no matter how big it is. Again, no judge will say “oh, but you only killed one person, so I’ll let you off with a warning this time.”

  60. muepsilongamma:

    you are making an obvious mistake. no-one should be jumping down your throat for your views. however – killing someone is objectively wrong, as it goes against any sane kind of morality we have on earth. however, having a child at, say, 17, isn’t objectively wrong – it is only subjectively wrong. you think it’s wrong, but some others may not. therefore it’s wrong for you to say having a child as a teenager is ‘a wrongdoing’. you simply can’t say that!

    killing a small child is wrong in anyone’s book. having a small child aged 17 isn’t. it may be to you, but not everyone. and there’s nothing inherently ‘wrong’, or ‘evil’ about it – that’s just the sociological spin we tend to append to it nowadays.

    i’m sure in biblical times it was reprehensible to NOT have had a child at 17. times change.

  61. In biblical times, those who had children out of wedlock were stoned in the streets. Save for Mary, of course. That’s the real issue here. This girl probably isn’t married, if that is her child in the picture.

  62. but that’s then. that was before we had what’s known as a ‘secular’ state. we don’t do things like that anymore, because we realised a good couple of centuries ago that morality is relative. you might dislike something that i don’t mind, and vice-versa. i don’t mind people having different mindsets – ‘if everyone liked apples, nobody would buy pears’. but what you’re saying isn’t right – you can say ‘i think it’s wrong’, but you can’t simply say ‘it’s wrong.’

    pragmatism has brought us cures for all types of diseases, the realisation that the world is round, acceptance, reunification, all sorts of things.

    dogmatism has brought us stoning, genocide, racial intolerance etc.

    don’t be dogmatic, and you’ll be a better person for it.

  63. I suppose I should have specified that I was merely stating my opinion, but it doesn’t seem like enough given the subject matter. When a teen becomes a mother, she is not the only one affected. Her child is affected, the child’s father is affected, her parents are affected, his parents are affected, her friends are affected, his friends are affected, and everyone who pays taxes to support that child is affected. Does all this disruption of other peoples’ lives not make it wrong?

  64. hmmm.

    my first ever girlfriend (and the only girl i’ve ever loved) was born when her mother was 20 and unemployed, and not married. her dad left when she was two. her mum is great, and would do anything for her.

    she has won awards for acting, got the highest first in her year at university, and is shortlisted for a fullbright scholarship to go and study in the usa.

    i’m pretty glad she was born!

  65. I don’t really know what that has to do with what I said, but I guess I’ll tell a story too.

    The very first friend I ever had (we met in second grade) was born when her mother was 18 and unmarried. Her parents freaked out and got married (dropping out of school), despite not loving each other, and remained in their unhappy marriage until my best friend turned 18. They told her this story, that they stayed miserable because of her. My dear, innocent friend promptly started finding men on the internet and began sleeping around.

    Now, her parents are divorced, she lives with her boyfriend, they both cheat on each other, neither of them has a job or a car or money, neither has gone to college, and they have both shut their friends out of their lives completely.

    Did I mention she’s pregnant?

    —––———————————–
    Your first girlfriend is a very fortunate exception to the norms. Despite being born out of wedlock, she is very successful and – one can only hope – has no intention of making the same mistake her mother did. But look at what happened to my friend. Teen pregnancy can hurt a lot of people. I wish I knew the story of the girl in the picture, and pray that she is another success story.

  66. but the fact that there ARE exceptions (even if they’re rare), show that you can’t just apply a blanket statement to something like that…

    your friend sounds like she’s in a bit of a mess! :-s her life sounds like a raymond carver story! if you ask me (honestly), it’s nothing to do with liberalism or conservatism – it’s the ‘quick-fix’ society – computer games, internet, 24 hour drive-thrus, prescription meds – that’s the problem. people have no patience, and use superficial, material things to fill a hole in their lives.

  67. The only reason I applied a blanket statement was because I’ve never met a success story. I guess the town I grew up in most certainly isn’t the town to be looking for success stories in, though. But I guess you are right; my friend immediately turned to the internet and a whole bunch of sex because she wanted to replace the love that she thought her parents had taken away. I do miss the innocent, successful, intelligent person she used to be.

  68. thoreau said that instead of ‘going about doing good’ we should ‘set about being good’. that instead of preaching this or that value, just be good, and centred in yourself (whatever your beliefs may be), and your ‘goodness’ will just rub off on people. you sound like a nice person. :-) perhaps your friend could do with going for a coffee sometime. sounds like she needs someone to talk to, who’ll not pass judgment, but just be there and listen.

  69. Sadly, my friend has been avoiding me, along with all of her friends. She claims to never have time for her friends anymore. I try to ask her to do something, but her excuse is always the same. “I’m with my bf now. Maybe another time.” But there’s never been another time.

    But thank you for taking the effort to see the person behind the troll. You seem very nice too, and far more intelligent than I.

  70. krasivaya_devushka

    I’m with muepsilongamma on this whole teen pregnancy issue.

  71. okay, only one person really jumped down muepsilongamma’s throat.
    and i’m still confused.

    how exactly are creation of life and termination of life equal? i could maybe see the drunk driver killing a small child argument making sense if the girl in question chose to have an abortion.

    if i get knocked up, realize i’ve made a mistake, and choose (instead of taking the easy way out) to raise my child and work toward giving us both a better life, how does that automatically make me a bad person?

  72. ah crap, didn’t mean to log in under that name again.

  73. i’m not trying to be difficult, understand. i am just curious as to how anyone believes those two things equal, morally or otherwise.

  74. krasi, don’t worry, i don’t have any kids… :D

  75. I know nobody will buy this as an argument, but in my religion, all sins are equal. Therefore, I believe that fornication and murder are equally bad and should receive the same punishment. That is what my religion teaches.

  76. you believe an unwed teenage mother should be shown to the same cell as a child molester?

    fair enough.

  77. haandvine, I believe that fornicators and child-molestors will go to the same hell. Don’t bash my religion.

  78. I would like to apologize on behalf of all Christians for the way muepsilongamma is speaking. As Christians we are taught to not judge others. We are to love them the way Christ loves us. While I do not agree with sex outside of marriage, I will not condemn a girl who has made some mistakes. She could use prayer and encouragement, not someone looking down on her. She is after all, only human.

  79. theres another point that nobody’s mentioned muepsilongamma – if that IS her child, you dont know it’s circumstances at all. you don’t know that she’s not married, for gods sake, and for all you know she was raped. instead of getting an abortion she chose to have a child and try to carry on with her life, but you would see a picture of her with a child and condemn her to hell. whatever religion you are, youre not making it look too good. hitler gets the same punishment in the afterlife as somebody who swears or drinks alcohol? and you seem to be saying that once you’ve committed a sin, that’s that, there’s nothing you can do, and a girl who sleeps with somebody outside of marriage at 17 will pay for it when she dies 50 years later, no matter how much good she’s done since?

    and by the way this isn’t bashing your religion – i dont know what it is and frankly I don’t care.

  80. by the way, you say that fornicators and child molesters will receive the same punishment. just as well i suppose, considering a victim of child molestation is unlikely to be a virgin

  81. Did anybody else witness that momment between Muepsil and Alord? That was beautiful

  82. Look, I’m not asking you people to agree with what my religion teaches, but yes, once you commit a sin, that’s it. You’re doomed. But I’m not going to go on for hours explaining my religion to you people because I don’t have to. I believe what I believe and shame on you people for poking fun and tormenting me.

    And bobbit, regarding your second comment… wow. That’s about as low as it gets. My religion does NOT say that victims of child molestation are guilty of fornication and you know it. I’m shocked at your rudeness toward me and my beliefs. Despite what you said, you ARE bashing my religion, and you are well aware of it.

    You people are doing to me what you did to dan_fargis. Finally, someone comes and talks some sense in this site and you tear him down just because he has different beliefs than you. Now, you’re doing the same to me. It’s a pity, how hateful liberals can be toward conservatives, how hateful those who don’t practice a religion can be toward the religious. -sigh-

  83. Muepsil…

    So it’s OK for you to bash other people’s life choices that you don’t agree with (“… In fact, you should be taking care of your kid, not going to prom and then having more premarital sex afterwards! YOU LOSE!”) but it’s not OK for people to bash your life choices (your religion) that they don’t agree with. Who are you, god? damn hypocrite.

    I hope somebody sticks up for you one day when you make a mistake and not condemn you for it, maybe then you’ll understand what Christianity is really about

  84. Don’t assume that I’m “christian.”

    I was not “bashing,” I was right. If you have a child, your job is to take care of it, not go to prom.

    So far, everything I’ve done is according to my religion. I do not live an immoral life. No one can condemn me because I have done nothing wrong. And for those times I have made mistakes, I did what I’m supposed to do in order to ensure that I am still saved. I don’t know if the girl in the picture does or not, but judging by that revealing dress, probably not.

  85. muepsilongamma

    You are going about making your statement of belief in a most tragic way. Let me just take a few quotes here to show you the paradoxical or perhaps oxymoronical nature of some of your comments:

    “I was not “bashing”, I was right. If you have a child, your job is to take care of it, not go to prom.”
    Or both, of course.
    You may believe that. You may be willing to practice that (I am not saying you would end up in that situation, merely that you would follow through on your beliefs to the hilt and letter). But it is not fact. Belief will never, ever be fact. People will take offence when your phrasing causes them to feel put upon. Allow me to explain. I often find it discriminatory in the opposite fashion to the norm: how those with a religion find everyone without religion (or fixed religion which can be named) completely without moral boundaries. If someones morals do not conform with your own, and they act within them, and they, for instance, live in (theoretically) a family unit or with a sweetheart and they choose to have a child together at a young age they do not automatically deserve your condemnation to the depths of hell for all eternity and people are easily offended when they feel someone is calling them a bad person. People with one of the common religions tend to have an aura of condescension, not just because they do not approve of your lifestyle, but because they have a firmly rooted belief that their lifestyle is “better” than others.

    You also say that once a mistake is made you will be punished for it, no matter how you try to absolve yourself, and then go on to say “…the times I have made mistakes, I did what I’m supposed to do in order to ensure that I am still saved.”
    This is a hypocritical statement. See above paragraph.

    Everything anyone does has a shockwave of effect on those surrounding them. I personally do not know this girl or the child (whom everyone is pre-supposing to be hers) and I certainly do not believe in absolving yourself of responsibility. The person you are defines how you live. If you are born to a set of crude, rude, loosely moraled (sp?) people I admit you are hampered but you make your own choices. An extreme example: people who are in the pits of depression and struggle to recover, versus people in the pits of depression who fold and commit suicide.
    In personal experience terms; I lived with a man who took a great deal of narcotics and who was a heavy drinker. He was crass, pessimistic, and had a hard life behind him with deeply troubled pockets. I lived with this man for 2 years and I never touched drugs, I drank seldom and little when I did, and though I dipped into negative thought I came out the other end. I also happen to know a friend who became pregnant during college (that would be 18-ish over here in UK) and had a baby, has a full-time job and a partner who works part time, a house, a car (quite a nice car) and a lot of security that even I, a childless, qualified, living-with-partner worker do not have. She is not married. My belief is that WHO you are makes you. And that every choice is your own. This girl has not sinned in my eyes, and this is what scares me: the ease at which you can judge someone without ever having met them. All you need to see is their circumstance and already you have pursed lips and narrowed eyes and views to these people being somehow wrong. I’m afraid that logic dictates you would need to know more about her before you judge. Too quick to condemn.

    As for buying a dress, going to prom, your statement is harsh. Any parent, young or old, needs time to themselves. Again, I don’t know this girl, but I won’t automatically assume the worst. And shopping with (possibly) her baby doesn’t seem like a terrible thing to me. Prom is an event, staffed and watched over. It is not a new sexy dress for going nightclubbing, it’s a girl buying a frankly ugly but quite covering dress and enjoying a very influential night in her life. Parents are still people, with needs just like everyone else. If you are to set an example for your children to live by I would rather they be happy, content, and doing their “”own thing” by parenting, than be at home every night and weekends too looking over a childs shoulder all the time missing social aspects of their life that in the modern age they have no reason to miss out on, so that they looked “right”. Balance is key. I intend to have children at a later point in my life (I am sadly unable to birth myself so it will be an adoption) and I fully expect to live a life shared with others because I want to be happy and show my offspring that you can have responsibility and happiness and experience all in one life. I will be going out on the -occasional- weekend and enjoying meals and drinks with long time friends regardless of how many children I have, and this girl presumably won’t even be drinking (publicly at any rate).

    I am sorry if I generalised you with the relgious points but you did make it very clear that that was what this was about, and I’m not sure what religion you are or what your beliefs specify but organised religion and it’s power in this world frankly frightens me. (The real issue here being that she may have had the baby that may be hers out of wedlock. This is a religious issue, correct?).

  86. Since you were so kind to me, I am going to go all out here. Brutal honesty. Hiding nothing.

    I do not believe that everyone without a religion has no morals. Simply the ones I knew — they had no morals. It bothered me to see people who had such little respect for themselves. Further, no one in high school (yes, I said “no one”) would choose to have a child with their partner. Most teen pregnancies are accidental. They were not planned. They’re the kind where the girl cries upon seeing the positive pregnancy test, rather than leaping for joy.

    Actually, what I said was, once you commit a sin, that’s it. You’re doomed. I didn’t say “no matter how you try to absolve yourself.” Because there is, in fact, a way to absolve yourself. This is all explained in the holy book of my religion, and I said that I wasn’t going to explain for hours because, well, it would have taken hours. So there was no hypocrisy, there was simply a lack of a mile-long explanation.

    It is very fortunate that you didn’t fall into the same pit that your partner fell into. Sadly, I was not so lucky. My mother, like you, was surrounded by people who drank and smoked and used drugs heavily. They got into a lot of fights, several of them have been in jail, didn’t go to college, work at walmart, are very poor, and as icing on the cake, they all had children out of wedlock, who then had children out of wedlock. My mother was the only “not messed-up” person to come out of that family. To this day, my mother and father always make a point of telling me, at every given opportunity, that people like that are stupid, uneducated, bad people. They tell me that those people are worthless lowlifes. Sometimes, when I go to the mall or the grocery store or restaurants with my parents, we look around at the other people there. My parents will point out certain people and make judgements, jokes, and other remarks. After a couple of years, I caught on and joined in. It made them very proud to have such a “good girl” for a child. I always loved to make them proud, because it was very, very hard to do.

    I am not a mean spirited-person, and neither are my parents. I am simply preaching what I’ve been taught. Every time I saw someone at my school who looked like someone my parents would have pointed out, especially the teen parents, the first thing I heard was my parents’ voices in my head, making their jokes. And I believe every word my parents said.

    So yes, religion is a factor in this argument, but so is what I was taught by my parents. But I don’t blame them. They are entitled to believe what they want. I was raised as a good girl. It was a struggle, but I rarely disappointed them, and I made sure to never become one of the people my parents would have pointed out.

    I do not mean to be condescending. I do not mean to offend people. This is something I have done all my life, but when my family did it, the people never knew what we were doing, so there was no fear of retaliation, or of offending people. I will not apologize for my dear parents’ way of life, but I will apologize for not attempting to improve mine. I suppose acting like a compassionate member of today’s society is far more important than impressing my parents, and I suppose there is a way to be just that, and still be a “good girl.”

  87. I’m a little late, but I’m going to make my point anyway:

    The only 100% effective form of contraception is abstinence. I honestly don’t blame someone who is seventeen or eighteen for having sex, and so I understand that accidents can happen – not accidents where someone is irresponsible, but accidents where contraception has failed. I think it’s pretty immature to jump to conclusions like “teen parent? She must be a whore!” Just sayin’.

    Also, what the hell? Since when is a V-neck dress that shows a tiny bit of cleavage revealing? People wear far more revealing clothes on a day-to-day basis.

  88. Azarf, sadly, as Mary discovered, abstinence is not quite 100% effective. It does seem to have an almost perfect record though.

    muepsilongamma, let me jump on a limb here and assume you’re a Christian or a moslem. And based on the way you discuss Mary, I’ll assume you’re a Christian. So am I. But wow, your parents and you sound like judgmental freaks. Making fun of people for their moral choices? What happened to ‘judge not?’ Frankly, with people like you arguing for Christianity, the devil doesn’t need to bother looking for detractors of it! Has it never occurred to you that when Jesus said that whores and thieving tax collectors go into heaven before the Pharisees that he meant this girl gets into heaven before your judgmental parents?
    And are you seriously recommending the stoning of fornicators? Why don’t you go and bless baby-killers while you are at it? And yes that is in the Bible. Somewhere in the later psalms: ‘Blessed are those who dash your infants’ brains out on a stone,’ or something along those lines.
    And you’re right, your religion doesn’t teach that victims of rape are guilty of sex. Instead (unless you are Eastern Orthodox and follow the opinions of Fr. Romanides) it teaches that they’re guilty of the fact that _someone else ate a piece of fruit_. That doesn’t even make any SENSE. Thank God such idiocy only entered the mainstream interpretation of St. Paul with Augustine’s lunacy, and then only in the West (I have only seen it referenced in St. Cyprian of Carthage before Augustine’s time, and in fact even after Augustine, the view was denounced by St. Cyril of Alexandria, who presided over the 3rd Ecumenical Council, when he pronounced on the question of the Fall of Humankind; the view was never even countenanced in the East, until a few hundred years ago in Russia when it crept in from the Roman Church).
    Plus, I don’t know why you’re so concerned that she pay for her mistakes now, since you believe that all her mistakes deserve an infinite amount of never-ending torture. How about trying to help her to mitigate the suffering she has to undergo for her mistakes? What happened to ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you?’ If you made a mistake do you really want all of society to give you a giant middle finger and leave you alone? Or would you want them to help you out?
    Let this poor girl have at least one night to wear a dress and feel pretty. You think married couples should never have their kids babysat so that they can go out?
    Now I agree with you that sexual relations outside marriage are wrong. But not everyone agrees with me on this. And frankly without the metaphysical assumptions I make, I wouldn’t draw this conclusion. So I don’t argue with people over it. And I’m sure not going to try to make other people obey it. And if they need help dealing with their mistakes I try to forgive them and help them. Not make them the butt of family jokes and leave them to rot as your family seems to do.
    Look at your words and ask yourself if you see Christ, or if you see the devils of the Pharisees.

  89. “Azarf, sadly, as Mary discovered, abstinence is not quite 100% effective. It does seem to have an almost perfect record though.”

    I’m not meaning to be pedantic, and I agree with almost everything that you said, but I’m not a Christian and I don’t believe that Jesus was immaculately conceived by Mary so to me, abstinence is 100% effective. I’m not meaning to disrespect your beliefs – I just thought that should be clarified.

  90. why in god’s fucking name are you guys arguing about religion on LAMEBOOK.COM

  91. I am catholic. Yeah, you could say that’s christian but I think it’s very different. We hold on to the very important traditions that other denominations have done away with to make christianity more “hip.”

    Quite frankly, I don’t think it’s society’s job to help me when I make a mistake. When I mess up, I have to fix it. Nobody else can do that but me. If i’d had a child as a teen, I would have deserved the giant middle finger for all the lives I would have ruined.

    “Let this poor girl have one night to wear a dress and feel pretty.”
    First of all, “poor girl?” So now she’s a victim for being irresponsible? I’m sure she’ll learn her lesson now. Second of all, I’m sure she gets to feel pretty every time a guy is willing to touch her perfect body. And of course married couples can hire a sitter and go out together, but this girl is NOT married.

    My parents are not judgemental freaks. Sure, they can be quick to judge, but they are not freaks. They were only trying to teach their children good morals, and it worked. I have an excellent moral standing, and they never doubted me for a second.

  92. and being as long winded and bitchy as you are…you never had to worry about getting knocked up young. No one would touch you.

    IT’S A COMMENT THREAD….GET OVER YOURSELF for fucks sake

  93. Muepsilongamma, shut up. Please. You’ve disregarded everything that everyone else has to say and contributed nothing new to this conversation. Frankly, I don’t care what you have to say anymore.

    Don’t make assumptions about someone you don’t know. You don’t know this girl’s circumstances. Don’t call her a whore or irresponsible. As far as I know, Catholicism is kind of against judging others.

    Please stop talking about your religion like everything it preaches is fact. I don’t care if you think that it’s so – throughout life, you’re going to come across people who don’t, and you need to get used to it.

    This whole argument is so stupid. If you want to be a bigot, don’t do it on lamebook.com.

  94. oh well she’s catholic. That explains a lot.

    personally i still think its her brother.

  95. “KNOW YE NOT THAT THE UNRIGHTEOUS SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD? BE NOT DECEIVED: NEITHER FORNICATORS, NOR IDOLATERS, NOR ADULTERERS, NOR EFFEMINATE, NOR ABUSERS OF THEMSELVES WITH MANKIND, NOR THIEVES, NOR COVETOUS, NOR DRUNKARDS, NOR REVILERS, NOR EXTORTIONERS SHALL INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD!”
    1 Corinthians 6:9-10

    “NOW THE BODY IS NOT FOR FORNICATION, BUT FOR THE LORD; AND THE LORD FOR THE BODY. FLEE FORNICATION! EVERY SIN THAT A MAN DOETH IS WITHOUT THE BODY; BUT HE THAT COMMITTETH FORNICATION SINNETH AGAINST HIS OWN BODY.”
    1 Corinthians 6:13b, 18

    “NEITHER LET US COMMIT FORNICATION, AS SOME OF THEM COMMITTED, AND FELL IN ONE DAY THREE AND TWENTY THOUSAND.”
    1 Corinthians 10:8

    “IF A MAN ENTICES A VIRGIN WHO IS NOT BETROTHED, AND LIES WITH HER, HE SHALL SURELY PAY THE BRIDE-PRICE FOR HER TO BE HIS WIFE.”
    Exodus 22:16

    “SHE SHALL BE BROUGHT TO THE DOOR OF HER FATHER’S HOUSE AND THERE THE MEN OF HER TOWN SHALL STONE HER TO DEATH. SHE HAS DONE A DISGRACEFUL THING IN ISRAEL BY BEING PROMISCUOUS WHILE STILL IN HER FATHER’S HOUSE. YOU MUST PURGE THE EVIL FROM AMONG YOU!”
    Deuteronomy 22:21

    “LET MARRIAGE BE HONORABLE AMONG ALL, AND THE MARRIAGE BED BE WITHOUT DEFILEMENT, FOR GOD WILL JUDGE FORNICATORS AND ADULTERERS!”
    Hebrews 13:4

    “NOW THE WORKS OF THE FLESH ARE MANIFEST, WHICH ARE THESE, ADULTERY, FORNICATION, UNCLEANNESS, LASCIVIOUSNESS … OF WHICH I TELL YOU BEFORE, AS I HAVE TOLD YOU IN TIME PAST, THAT THEY WHICH DO SUCH THINGS SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD!”
    Galatians 5:19-21

    “FOR THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD, EVEN YOUR SANCTIFICATION, THAT YE SHOULD ABSTAIN FROM FORNICATION: THAT EVERY ONE OF YOU SHOULD KNOW HOW TO POSSESS HIS VESSEL IN SANCTIFICATION AND HONOR, NOT IN LUST OF CONCUPISCENCE, EVEN AS THE GENTILES WHICH DO NOT KNOW GOD.”
    1 Thessalonians 4:3-5

    “BUT FORNICATION, AND ALL UNCLEANNESS OR COVETOUSNESS, LET IT NOT BE ONCE NAMED AMONG YOU, AS BECOMETH SAINTS … FOR THIS YE KNOW, THAT NO WHOREMONGER, NOR UNCLEAN PERSON, NOR COVETOUS MAN, WHO IS AN IDOLATER, HATH ANY INHERITANCE IN THE KINGDOM OF CHRIST AND GOD!”
    Ephesians 5:2,5

    “BUT THE FEARFUL, AND UNBELIEVING, AND THE ABOMINABLE, AND MURDERERS, AND FORNICATORS, AND SORCERERS, AND IDOLATERS, AND ALL LIARS SHALL HAVE THEIR PART IN THE LAKE WHICH BURNETH WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE: WHICH IS THE SECOND DEATH!”
    Revelation 21:8

  96. …And that’s relevant how? I’ve already said that I don’t believe in any of that.

    Grow up.

  97. Also:

    “If one curses his father or mother, his lamp will go out at the coming of darkness.”
    Proverbs 20:20
    “All who curse their father or mother must be put to death. They are guilty of a capital offense.”
    Leviticus 20:9

    ” If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, “You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the Lord.” When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through.”
    Zechariah 13:3

    “From there Elisha went up to Bethel. While he was on his way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him. “Go up baldhead,” they shouted, “go up baldhead!” The prophet turned and saw them, and he cursed them in the name of the Lord. Then two shebears came out of the woods and tore forty two of the children to pieces.”
    2 Kings 2:23-24

    “Make ready to slaughter his sons for the guilt of their fathers; Lest they rise and posses the earth, and fill the breadth of the world with tyrants.”
    Isaiah 14:21

    So, um, what’s the body-count there? Kill kids who curse at their parents, kill the non-religious folk, kill brats, and kill the *innocent children* of people who have committed sins. Lady, you’ve just wiped out at least half of the world’s population.

    Funny how you conveniently forget about all of this when you’re talking about how wonderful and full of morals your religion is.

  98. Holy hell, how did I miss this?

  99. It is weird, though…in my religion, people with the name muepsilongamma, who go onto public forums and direct their beliefs at others as though they were sent directly from God to do His bidding for that purpose…well, they’re the ones that go to hell.

    What a world.

  100. Doesn’t this site have ANY moderators? Why is this idiot troll being allowed to cut-and-paste long all-caps Bible verses?

    Why are you all arguing with the troll? Don’t you know that’s just what they live for, having no other life?

    And here’s what I don’t get: why is (nearly) everyone assuming that the child is hers? Someone upthread pointed out that the child could be a younger sibling, a cousin, a niece or nephew.

    Everyone here, especially μεγ, is assuming the girl in the picture isn’t married. You don’t know anything about her life. She could have dropped out of high school to care for an ailing parent, met a man, married “lawfully” in the church, had a baby, and gone back to school. Maybe she’s taking the baby shopping to save up babysitting money so she can go to prom.

    I suspect the troll is rather young, from internal evidence. Let’s hope she (‘μεγ’ spells “meg”) outgrows her tendency to judge others based on no evidence at all.

  101. Incidentally, I’m a sorcerer, an idolater, and a fornicator (not lately, alas). That means I’m certainly going to hell in μεγ’s religion. Which is fine, because if her God is really, you know, GOD, I wouldn’t be in heaven with such an evil deity anyway.

  102. BAAAAAHAHAHAHA I HAVE SUCCESSFULLY SHIT ALL OVER THIS COMMENT THREAD AND THERE AIN’T NOTHIN’ YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT!!! CHOKE ON MY BIBLE, BITCHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  103. Righteous!

  104. Ah. Revising opinion: μεγ is just a garden-variety shithead troll. Probably not even a Christian, much less a Catholic. I suspected she was fake from the fact that she implied that Catholics aren’t “really” Christians, something no Catholic would say; to them, the Roman Catholic Church is Jesus’ own Church, which makes them the ONLY “real” Christians.

  105. I was surprised at how this comment thread got on this wild tangent. So a teenaged girl has a kid, big deal. It may not even be hers!

    AS A CATHOLIC (we believe in Christ = Christian), I know not to be judgemental. Sure, premarital sex is bad, but it does happen. We’re only human, and the good thing is that she at least took responsibility for him/her and didn’t get an abortion. IF that’s what happened, anyway – we don’t know that!

    Also, this is Lamebook – not exactly a place for ideological discussion.

    So we learned 2 things today: 1. Some, but not all, Catholics are crazy, and 2. Don’t use Nair!

  106. Oh you dear people… I know muepsilongamma. She’s… she’s nuts. That’s really the only way I can describe her. And yes, everything she said was true. She believes every word she preaches. Oh man… I apologize on her behalf. She really is a good person… she’s just crazy.

  107. Pay no attention to thequeen everybody, she’s just another heathen living in sin. May God have mercy on your soul, you traitor!

  108. Sorry, thequeen. I take the phenomenological view here: if you behave exactly like a psycho troll, you ARE a psycho troll.

    Psycho trolls are not nice people. Therefore this crazy lady is NOT a nice person, no matter how nice she is (or was, before your “treachery”) to you in person.

  109. I AM NOT A PSYCHO TROLL!!!! WE’LL SEE WHO’S CRAZY WHEN I’M IN HEAVEN AND YOU’RE IN HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  110. My two cents, if I may:

    This has been going on since the 13th, and I mean, really? Obviously everyone has trapped you in a corner so that you result to screaming out lines from your bible in an attempt to use a “magic erase marker” for being naive.

    I think grouping all teenage mothers together is not only cruel but shallow. I’ve known of someone who was a rape victim and became impregnated, but she decided to raise the baby since it was, indeed, her flesh and blood. Opinions will always be butchered, since we are not in a world of everyone being the same, I honor you for arguing your point intellectually in the beginning, but now I think you’re just ignorant and fool-hardy.

    People said they understand your views but are just disagreeing with it and stating their opinions, which is acceptable. Retorting back and forth though, is idiotic. Unfortunately I don’t know much about you and I will not judge you. People like azarf and mad2physicist are stating their observations on your opinion, and explaining why the think this way and that, some even put down facts. I do not know much about religion, I wasn’t born in a family of much faith, I have my own views on which religion I believe in rather than others, but your judgmental ways does not rise up to give Catholics a “good stamp”, so to say. People these days are judgmental, much like you (yes, you are being judgmental, saying that if you sin you’re done, etcetc), and will brand all Catholics as people much like you if they only are exposed to people who preach their faith aimlessly just to make others try and see the “good” they see in their religion.
    Here’s the thing, not everyone will approve of your faith, not everyone approves of my faith but I don’t go trying to change their views as you seem to be doing (others have too, unconsciously, it’s just how humans are these days). Treat others how you want to be treated, and if you want me to speak to you as you speak to others in a condescending, “my faith is always better and my views are superior to yours”, arguable tone, then I will if it actually sticks in your brain and doesn’t go in ear and out the other like all the other’s long paragraphs have.

    It seems to you your parents are God, have you noticed? It’s how THEY feel about YOU, and how THEIR morals are fantabulous and above all others and how they go about being judgmental freaks (yes, in today’s society, they will be labeled as such, no one likes to be laughed at for mistakes. After all, people LEARN from their mistakes and fix it so they never do it again.) Of course, not all people learn and some people do the same things over and over again, as you indeed have not learned that you are pushing your morals onto everyone thinking they are, again, superior, just because your parents taught you as such. If you are Catholic, that’s great, but what you’re doing is definitely not catholic.

    I suspect you will disregard all of this because you think we’re pieces of shit who you trample on while you reach out for something unknown to us all.

    Stop trolling, get a life, go get some friends, because obviously you have none with the way you act.

    If I may, I will now discontinue my rant and say one leaving thing that sums up my paragraphs in even a language you may understand:
    You need to be slapped in the face, you judgmental and insane witch, have a nice taste of reality while you eat everyone’s dust while they ignore your obvious young naive ways and focus their attention and something whose worth doesn’t line up to a heap of wet cat dung.

  111. Yeah, I got judgmental at the end. Sorry.

  112. Nair isn’t something to fuck with. I’ve had a harsh experience with it before.
