Michael Cera, and I don't even know who he is.

God, I miss Gob. For months after seeing the wedding episode of Arrested Development, my friends and I would spontaneously burst into bouts of "...that was my illusion!"

Not that you'd disagree, FL, but the claim "she didn't abort so the movie must be pro-life" assumes that being pro-choice is all about aborting widdle babies.

i haven't seen the movie, just the trailer clips
the main problem of the movie is so strange for me
teenage pregnancy is of course troublesome, but once it happened, why people need to find adopting parents etc
it's your blood and and babies are to be welcomed to the family not given away, normally
i f.e know a friend who got pregnant at 16, she was a very spoiled only child, now she is a grandmom at 37 and seems don't mind
though if your circumstances are not in favour to have a child that early then an abortion is justifiable too, no need to multiply misery
btw the little miss sunshine is the worst movie i have seen last yr, how it can be nominated to the oscars etc

Read, I have some terrible news to tell you about the Oscars. You should sit down. It, uh... no. No, it would be too painful. I know! What a travesty! Such a stupid movie winning our greatest, mosts meritocratic honor!

Just say something about my overwhelming gayness and how I totally missed the point, Sifu. Then you'll truly belong here.

Unfortunately it only derails into abortion-talk.
A: I went to that Bodies exhibit and they had a sign warning people in front of the area where they had the part with the pregnant woman with the baby at different stages of development. My pastor friend and I thought the warning was because if anyone pro-choice went in there, they'd come out pro-life.
B: Or, it could be because people might find the corpses of children disturbing.
A: Hmmph.

Yeah, sifu, I wouldn't want you to know about the totally unexpected but totally hot three-way with Jennifer Garner, Jason Bateman, and that chick who plays Juno. I'll keep that secret safe.

13: wait, are you one of the parties in that conversation? Or both of them? Is one of the parties a member of your family?

14: uh since I avert my eyes during any depiction sexual activity featuring persons under the age of consent I would obviously not know about that anyhow, thank you.

13: I was upset by that when I saw the Bodies exhibit. Why cordon off pregnancy in its own separate alcove? Later I talked to an older woman I respect a great deal, a medical professional and longtime peace activist.

She told me that the museum that sponsored the exhibit was really worried about the community taking offense (there were also protests about the creator using bodies of peope who had been executed in China, and not getting informed consent from them before they died). So they convened an advisory board, of which she was a member, to figures out how best to present this sensitive exhibit.

I was still mad, but it made me feel better to know that thoughtful people had really tried to be fair.

I saw the Bodies exhibit in NYC, where they also had a warning up about the pregnancy room. I didn't have a problem with it. There are reasons other than abortion why people might want to skip that room. I suspect someone like my aunt, who had a late-term miscarraige a couple of years ago would.

21: That reminds me that a total stranger started telling me about her miscarriage when I was at the exhibit. The man with me was a little bothered by it, but I wasn't. She was quite open and friendly about it, and the atmosphere in general was one of camaraderie (there were plenty of men in the room, but lots of women too).

Okay, I didn't get a chance to say this in the first Juno thread, because things had already moved on, but that scene in the women's clinic *was so* anti-condom. Creepy declasse goth girls waxing lyrical about flavored condoms? Squick! And I'm down with teh fellation, you know. Just one more idiotic "live fast, die young" hypocritical youth culture bullshit message.

Juno=anti-condom, that's all there is to it.
