Deconstruction Roundup for February 06, 2015

(by the Slacktiverse and others; collected by Silver Adept, who has been fascinated with a game all about connecting lines.)

The point of these posts is threefold:

  1. To let people stay up to date on ongoing deconstructions. (All ones on our list, including finished and stalled ones, here.)
  2. To let people who can’t comment elsewhere have a place to comment.
  3. To let people comment in a place where people who can’t read Disqus can see what they have to say.

    With regard to the latest NRA “Papa don’t preach”:

    Fred’s right. This is really far worse than what’s gone before. The nitpicking over niggly little bits of language, the slut-shaming obviously…

    But there’s also a point I think Fred may have missed. This is obviously, blatantly, a special circumstance. The father of the baby is the acknowledged tool of Satan on this fallen Earth. But even that circumstance is not special enough to make abortion acceptable, just as even hiding Jews from the Nazis is not special enough to make lying acceptable. Any given act, in this morality, can always be unambiguously classed as Right or Wrong, in complete isolation from its context. I wonder how they feel about the Trolley Problem.
