Amputee Fetishes: 6 Realities Of Losing Both Legs As A Girl

Postby DamianaRaven » Tue Jun 30, 2015 6:44 pm

This is actually a very good article, but two things are pissing me off in a pretty dark way. First of all, what the fuck with the title change? How dare they turn the sexual harassment this girl has endured into the click-baity focus of her story? This is a new fucking low and I really don't know how to deal with the disgust I'm feeling.

Secondly, while most of the comments are appropriately supportive with a few lighthearted puns here and there, far too many (which would be any number greater than zero) have taken it upon themselves to announce their complete lack of sympathy for people who get hurt doing stupid things. At least two people have "nominated" her for a Darwin Award, even though she was neither killed nor sterilized by the accident. I realize that hateful trolls are just part of the internet landscape, but taunting and mocking an injured child - she was 17 when this happened - flies right over my threshold of bullshit tolerance. This is the sort of thing I would actually punch a motherfucker for saying out loud in my physical presence. What the fuck is wrong with humanity?

In any event, Ms. Beninati's story is actually a very inspiring and well-written read, but I'm ready to take a ball bat to Title Twat and everyone who thinks it's OK to say we shouldn't waste medical resources trying to help people like her. Ironically, saying shit like that in front of somebody's mother is a great way to end up needing a mouthful of stitches and a couple of shiny new porcelain teeth. Just... ugh!

Seeing how we aren't in the need to ration our healthcare at this time-people are really being dicks. They'd change their tune if it was their family member. They almost always do.

Porcelain is probably the better choice all in all, but should I ever lose my teeth, I will have them surgically replaced with shark's teeth (if I have to travel to Indonesia or Malawi to this end, so be it). After the operation, I will seek the person who smashed my teeth out, and bite their tongue out via their throat.

Thou, teaching thrift, thyselfe couldst never thrive.
So, like the whetstone, many men are wont
To sharpen others, when themselves are blunt."

Anyone who has any kind of opinion fucking disgusts me.

Well, let's not be too hasty. My grandfather is somewhere between obscenely wealthy and ludicrously wealthy, and I know I'm the will.

Not that it's purely a practical choice -- kids would treat it like a moving jungle gym. Some would grab on and ride next to the train on their skateboards, or they would hop on if they saw a friend walking along the train tracks so they could smack him in the back of the head as it went by. I remember one time the train was transporting a bunch of airplane parts, so, of course, kids couldn't resist climbing around in that. It looked fun, and I wanted to be a part of it. What could possibly go wrong?


HOLY SHIT, has this town ever heard of something called a "fence?"

Comment from reallifegirl on this article.

Confession: I immediately looked up the album that was mentioned in the article. It contains lyrics such as:

"Some men love animals
Others prefer human brats
But I do like the crippled ones
Much more than dogs and cats
When I see a handicapped
I almost wanna cum
Taking off their prosthesis
And fuck'em in their bum"


...I have regrets.

Fine we can get married and be made medical POAs. But I draw the line at pillow therapy.


-also. Those lyrics. Now I have regrets as well.

Even if we were, I should hope that children would be a universal exception because they're kids and kids are expected to make idiotic decisions. That's why we don't let them drink or gamble or vote. Furthermore, this particular kid isn't whining a "poor me" tale of woe. She's quite forthright in admitting that she did a very stupid thing that she paid for with both of her legs. She seems to have come to terms with the consequences of her mistake, but that's not good enough for some people who claim the only "tragedy" here was not letting her bleed to death.

Frankly, I think the motivation is less about Darwinesque eugenics and more a manifestation of bitterness and jealousy. How dare this legless little hussy embrace life with a smile when they're so consumed with self-loathing and spite that they're lashing out at injured teenagers just to believe, if only for a moment, that they're better than somebody else. I have no idea how to think, speak, or act when I see something so pathetically hateful. I may or may not have called somebody a load their mother should have swallowed. Since wishing people out of existence is a power the Lord (quite wisely) decided not to bestow upon the likes of me, I guess I'll have to hold on to the faith that such people will ultimately get what they deserve.

I should warn you that I probably won't actually get any money. I'm fairly certain that, at most, I'll get his old flint-lock pistols and his Mountie uniform.

When she described actually losing her legs I was instantly reminded of "the rail tracer" from Baccano

I checked out the band as well. It's some weird grindcore/death metal/groove metal mish-mash, not terribly good either. I'd be really grossed out if they made a pornogrind song about an accident I was in, as well.

However, it's not unheard of for musicians to pull songs from headlines and metal is no exception
