Helping Kids Cope

This is another post in The Blob Scholastic Outreach series that has been so popular with adults and kids alike.

Children today have great difficulty (perhaps moreso than at any time in history) negotiating the treacherous minefield that is their parent's lives. Not only are divorce rates skyhigh but alternative sexual lifestyles are becoming almost normalized, at least here in the West.



















A sensitive child may be well aware, on some level, that there are problems in the home but only has remedial understanding of what are often complex issues. More certain still is the fact that that he/she doesn't yet possess the coping strategies and that's where the Scholastic Outreach series hopes to be of help. We've already dealt with bedwetting and homosexuality so let's move on.

Just yesterday, as you'll see in this link, a "man" now named Thomas Beatie gave birth to a cute little baby girl. He'd been a woman who had a sex change operation and kept the womb but.....just watch the video:


Transgenderism is today accepted as a fact of life, just another stop along the continuum that is human sexuality, but how to explain this to our children. Prolific author David Jerome (you may know him from the Turd Stuffington adventure books) has penned an insightful, gentle, an truthful recounting of one family's journey from mom, dad, and child to sort of mom, dad, and child after Theresa (the mom in question) had gender re-assignment surgery to become a male.

It's compelling reading and treats a difficult subject with a sensitivity that will be most beneficial for those of all ages.
Whether you're dealing with the transgender issue or not this is a fascinating story and will make a worthwhile addition to your home library.

Blob, I think there's an issue here that needs to be addressed. Have you noticed that not a month goes by when you don't paste a giant dick on a picture of an otherwise decent-looking woman? I mean, I get it, chicks with dicks, yeah, ha ha, it's funny, but only to a certain extent. So here goes my little spiel on the subject:

Like so many other prolific writers, you have had to hide your true self from the masses in order to avoid judgment, censorship and laughing and pointing. But, we must learn from these prolific writers, like Tennessee Williams, Oscar Wilde and Stephen King, that in the end, no one cares whether you hung out at the mexican border looking for a cheap thrill with a guy named Julio every third saturday of the month. So why wait until you're long gone and forgotten, eh Blobby? Start now! Say it with me now-- It's OK to be GAY!

ps. Let me know when you're ready to talk. My Queer as Folk tapes are already cued up.

Ahh Maria, it's so good to have you gracing my back page once again (wasn't it Elton John who famously sang "The Bitch is Back"?)
As usual your writing is acerbic, witty and concise...a veritable pleasure to read and yet there's something that doesn't ring true about your assertion.
It's as though you've built a marvelous golden mansion atop a kit-kat foundation; beautiful to behold but it doesn't stand up.
The first time I ever depicted the male member on The Blob was after you requested "cock shots" in the name of equal time.
Since then there's been the most recent post, a "Hillary Clinton with penis" masterpiece and one or two others Inot attached to women BTW)....that's it, that's all.
Clearly, it's not true that, as you say, "not a month goes by when you don't paste a giant dick on a picture of an otherwise decent-looking woman.
If that's your proof that I'm gay then you're gonna have to do a hell of a lot better.
Let me throw the whole dick thing right back in your face....maybe you are just imagining "giant dicks on decent looking women" because this is your ideal partner....you hate men but aren't gay no matter how hard you try to be. Chew on that for a while!!

Maria Callous said...

Yeah, but I had sex last night and you didn't. Chew on that.

Dearest Maria! If you'll allow me to be your "Knight in Shining Armour", so to speak, I'll just jump (as light on my feet as Nijinsky and as cat-like as Nureyev!! Oh to be as manly as those two fine specimens of pure, unadulterated masculinity!!! You just know they were "killers" with the ladies!! They could pliee and jetee all over me any time!!! Bis!! Bis!! Encore!!! Ha! Ha!, eh Maria? Wow!!)) in front of you and shield you from the naked aggression of that mean old bully Blobbie, and let him "throw that whole dick thing right back in MY face"!! You're welcome, Maria! I really don't mind at all!!! It's called "taking one for the team"!! And I think that we all know which team I play for!!!!!!
Blobbie!! Give me your best shot!! You don't scare me (ha! ha! not too much, anyway!!)!! I'll just swallow hard, and take it like a man!!
Ha! Ha! Blobber ol' pal!! You know I didn't mean that! Sometimes I wonder if I'm just a big blowhard!!! See you at the Ballet!! Tobias

Maria...not to burst your self congratulatory bubble (congrats BTW) but I had sex last night too and will probably have sex again later this evening, so there!!!!


this Blob comment brought to you by the makers of Keri Lotion. Remember: "You're never alone when Keri's at home!"

Tobias,
You scare me more and more each day but somehow you make the creepiness work for you.
Nice of you to come to Maria's defense but if I had to pick a "damsel in distress" between the two of you it probably wouldn't be her, especially now that she's having premarital sex.
Oh Tobias, maybe you can help me out here...If a (mezzo)soprano and a tenor do "it" is that sex or a crime against nature?? Write back soon!

All right-thinking Christians like me are appalled and disgusted by the "Cloaca Maxima" that is The Blob!! You, Blob, as well as your pustular, putrid correspondants will surely roast in Hell ("For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap" Galatians 6:7) as surely as Jesus will return any day now!!!
Reading the HORRIBLE FILTH on this loathesome site has convinced me that these are, indeed, THE FINAL DAYS!! Praise His Name!!!
Until THE DAY arrives, though, more tits and ass (I don't really care for the euphonium) please!!!
(So I'm conflicted!! Sue me!!! Better yet, pass that Keri Lotion!!! Is Tobias really a "playah", if you know what I mean?????) Regards, Pat

Rev. Robertson,
So nice of you to write in and what a pleasure it is to see that you are of somewhat sound mind but more importantly, quite sound body!! Praise the Lord and pass that Keri lotion!!!

And what about that delicious Troy Huber? What's his story??? PR

"The Bitch is Back" you say? This is Elton John when he was straight. On the Muppet Show. You can't see it, but this pink unitard leaves little or nothing to the imagination. And believe me, there's plenty to chew on.

Maria Callous said...

Little known fact about Troy, he is the president of Keri industries. We would still be together to this day, but that he was married to his job.

slapper58 said...

Frankly that link to the Elton pic didn't work.
Here's the YouTube footage of Miss Piggy and Elton John(in the pink unitard)singing "Don't Go breakin' My Heart". M. Piggy clearly is providing most of the sausage.
