Daily (Hate) Mail

Wow, the Daily Mail is officially off its fucking nut. Novelist/Mail writer Fay Weldon is advising England to "sterilize teenage girls ... temporarily at least." Oh, temporarily! That makes it better! "Doesn't [sterilizing girls from age] 12 until 17 sound rather sensible?" Weldon asks. "This would have the advantage of bringing down the teenage pregnancy rate, so high in this country it makes us a disgrace among the nations - the worst offenders in Europe. The abortion rate would fall sharply. And silly young girls could get on with the education that is meant to produce serious, responsible taxpayers, not benefit recipients." Uhm, how about you just teach your children about safe sex? Also, what about those teenage boys doing the impregnatin', Fay? [Daily Mail]
