Meanwhile in Virginia

Posted by on Wed, Jun 10, 2009 at 12:59 PM

1e4a/1244664063-poster-barbed-wire-dolls-women-behind-bars_2.jpgOfficials at Virginia's largest women's prison have been rounding up all the female inmates who appear to be lesbians—"loose-fitting clothes, short hair or otherwise masculine looks"—and placing them in a special "butch wing" of the prison in an effort to "break up relationships" and "curb illegal sexual activity."

Because... um... nothing puts a stop to homosexual activity faster than confining homosexuals together. I've heard those RSVP Cruises are basically big gay Purity Balls.

This kinda makes sense to me. I mean, it's important for the guards to know which ones it's OK to rape and which ones it isn't.

Do they have a nelly wing in male prisons?

@1 I'm sure your not at all homophobic and that you also get upset when women check you out, right? Then again the only way you would know they are staring at you is if you were staring at them. Maybe try concentrating on your workout and stop staring at dudes?

Maybe they just don't want the gay to spread? They don't want a gay epidemic like what's going on in the general population.

It does seem like there are a lot of gay guys at my local 24 Hour Fitness. But then I do live in a gay neighborhood and that may be skewing the numbers a bit. It's kind of weird to not be pretty much the only guy in a yoga class. But I always figure that if a guy is checking me out or hitting on me, I should just take it as a compliment.

Best part of that Time article on Purity Balls:

David Diefenderfer has slipped outside for a cigarette; he's a leathery South Dakotan in a big black cowboy hat, and he hands over his card. HAVE GUN, WILL TRAVEL: BREEDER SERVICE, it says, with a picture of a syringe. He's in the cattle-reproduction business. He's also the father of nine children by seven women.

Three of his daughters are with him tonight, including 10-year-old Taylor. I asked what purity means to her. "I don't really know," she says, and she's shy about talking about all this. "But it means you make a promise to your dad to be a virgin until you are married and not have a lot of boyfriends."

This may just be my gutter-hair talking, but I thought those purity balls (and purity cruises, incidentally) were devices by which fathers traded their offspring for fresh, virginal poon.

At the point I saw ads for daddy-daughter cruises, I started getting the creepy feeling that this must be what's really going on.

I'm with 10 and 2. Not saying butch lesbians don't like other butch lesbians ... I sometimes think they don't like them as much.

Still is a horrible horrible horrible idea.

It's like these people watch episodes of Reno 911, thinking it's instructional.
