Have you seen this? I am so angry and upset that I can't even... "AR Rep Justin Harris in the Middle of 'Re-Homing' Pedophile Nightmare."

"Cut for mentions of re-homing and child abuse in a non-descriptive manner" - Read more... )

Basically, re-homing is a shockingly horrifying thing and I can't believe that it's been allowed to happen for so long. With all the skeezy people out there, who would think it's a good idea to give a child away to someone on the Internet? Wow.

Oh, and Arkansas state Rep Justin Harris and his wife should both be dragged out in the street and beaten with sticks. Because not only were they criminally negligent with the children in their care, they refuse to take responsibility for what they've done. Even now they continue to make excuses for their awful behavior.

Title: Flight
Author: Feygan
Fandom: Batman
Pairing: Nigma/Crane, slash
Main Characters: Edward Nigma, Jonathan Crane

Curled on his bed with an ice pack shoved against his face, Edward allowed himself to cry.

He'd looked at himself in the bathroom mirror as he used a washcloth to remove the worst of the blood and mess from his bruise-mottled skin. He looked like some grotesque monster, his face swollen and lumpy. There were finger-shapes pressed into the skin around his neck like spread butterfly wings, four fingers and a thumb on each side of his clavicle.

His chest and stomach were covered in fist marks, darker purple patches raised amongst the surrounding red and blue. The Batman had focused largely on his front, though there was a nasty pain in his right shoulder blade--it hurt to lift his arm.

He felt and looked terrible. The Batman had really done a number to him, and he'd been helpless to stop it.

Title: How Bruce Wayne Completely Revitalized Gotham and Did His Parents Proud
Author: Feygan
Summary: A "what if Alfred wasn't such a terrible guardian and actually got Bruce Wayne some therapy" pseudo-commentary.

After the death of his parents, Bruce Wayne wallowed in grief and despair for a solid four months. He even began thinking about getting revenge on Joe Chill. He punched walls and ruined several priceless antiques. And then Alfred sent him to counseling and his therapist helped him to face his grief and asked him to find ways to deal with the anger inside him.

Knowing that he was now an orphan, Bruce asked Alfred to show him what happened to orphans without billion dollar trust funds. He was curious to know what might have happened to him if he'd been a regular kid and if he hadn't had Alfred in his life.

He was horrified by the deplorable conditions the children were kept in. He begged Alfred to let him set up a foundation to help them. He called it the Martha Wayne Memorial Fund for the Care of Women and Children.

It felt good to help those less fortunate than himself. He refused all praise and instructed people to thank his mother. It was in her name that he made sure the orphans had food, clothing, and a warm place to stay during Gotham's harsh winters.

Because seriously, Alfred was a terrible guardian for young Bruce Wayne. Maybe it was some old-school British stiff upper lip-ness, but it was negligent of him not to get Bruce some therapy. At the very least, there should have been some grief counseling or something.

Instead he was like "Dude, you want to dress up in a bat costume and punch dangerous criminals in the face? You go ahead and do that. Just make sure you don't kill any of them, otherwise you become a criminal too."

Never mind that if Bruce dies, Alfred inherits a vast fortune. Hm.

Iran Foreign Minister Gives GOP Senators A Dose Of Reality Medicine

Whatever our response as a country is to Senate Republicans' shameless attempt to undermine the President's negotiations with Iran, I think we can all agree that foreign minister Javad Zarif's response is a terrific one.

Here it is, via Metaquest:

Asked about the open letter of 47 US Senators to Iranian leaders, the Iranian Foreign Minister, Dr. Javad Zarif, responded that "in our view, this letter has no legal value and is mostly a propaganda ploy. It is very interesting that while negotiations are still in progress and while no agreement has been reached, some political pressure groups are so afraid even of the prospect of an agreement that they resort to unconventional methods, unprecedented in diplomatic history. This indicates that like Netanyahu, who considers peace as an existential threat, some are opposed to any agreement, regardless of its content.

Zarif expressed astonishment that some members of US Congress find it appropriate to write to leaders of another country against their own President and administration. He pointed out that from reading the open letter, it seems that the authors not only do not understand international law, but are not fully cognizant of the nuances of their own Constitution when it comes to presidential powers in the conduct of foreign policy.

Foreign Minister Zarif added that "I should bring one important point to the attention of the authors and that is, the world is not the United States, and the conduct of inter-state relations is governed by international law, and not by US domestic law. The authors may not fully understand that in international law, governments represent the entirety of their respective states, are responsible for the conduct of foreign affairs, are required to fulfil the obligations they undertake with other states and may not invoke their internal law as justification for failure to perform their international obligations.

The Iranian Foreign Minister added that "change of administration does not in any way relieve the next administration from international obligations undertaken by its predecessor in a possible agreement about Irans peaceful nuclear program." He continued "I wish to enlighten the authors that if the next administration revokes any agreement with the stroke of a pen, as they boast, it will have simply committed a blatant violation of international law.
