A New Spring

Today has many names.

Vernal Equinox

First day of Spring



But whatever name you call it, it's the official start of spring.

Today is one of the days that daytime and nighttime are close to equal. The name Equinox comes from the Latin words aequus, meaning "equal", and nox, meaning "night".

And the day is usually viewed as the first day of spring, although there are plenty of places that aren't feeling the spring like weather

Now, you're probably wondering what Ostara and Eostre are. Well, they're actually the same thing. They just have two names due to where one is from.

Ostara is the Pagan holiday celebrating the come of spring and the beginnings of new life.

But what's Easter got to do with Pagans?

Easter gets its name from Eostre, which is the Germanic name for Ostara. It is celebrated with sunrise worship of the God and Goddess and eggs colored in pastels and decorated with the symbols of the God, the Goddess, the Sun God, unity, fire, water, agriculture, prosperity and growth, strength and wisdom, spring, love and affection, and protection. *

I'll perhaps go more into detail when it comes closer to Easter.

Merry Ostara and Happy Equinox from the Ice Queen

WTF? Georgia, you have some major issues to resolve...

I never ever thought I would live to see something like this. And I have been proven wrong that something like this would never happen in our modern time.

What are you talking about? You ask.

I'm talking about HB 1, the law proposed by Georgia State Rep. Bobby Franklin. This law would make any woman who has had a miscarriage punishable by death. Along with having an abortion.

WTF, Rep Franklin?

According to HB 1,  any "prenatal murder" in the words of the bill, including "human involvement" in a miscarriage, would be a felony and carry a penalty of life in prison or death.* Women will be required to prove that the miscarriage was a natural miscarriage. Don't you think it'll be tramatic enough having a miscarriage without having to prove in court that your body naturally miscarried the fetus?

Apparently, Rep Franklin doesn't know the difference between an abortion and a miscarriage. They are two different things. Look it up.

And just a little FYI: this is the same rep that propsed a bill last year to turn domestic violence and rape victims into asscusers. As far as I know that didn't pass. At least I don't find anything about that one.

Woman hater anyone?

If this passes, it will hold the door wide open for similar anti-women laws. If its not struck down by the Supreme Court first. What's next, being jailed for having anemia? Fainting spells? What about having a cold or the flu?

Apparentl these "men" want to go back to the days when women stayed home having babies, cooking and cleaning and whenever they were allowed out of the house they had to follow behind their husbands with hands clasped and heads down.

I don't know about you, but there will be snowball fights in Hell when the Ice Queen does that.

Anonymous Vs. WBC

Looks like someone finally gave Westboro Baptist Church the bitchslap they have been needing for looong time.

After a rumor that vigilante hacker organization Anonymous was declaring war on the controversial church. Anonymous denied they were planning any kind of war. But in true WBC style, they started a smear campaign and basically told them "Bring it!"

Both sides were invited to a radio talk show for a live web chat. Shirley Phelps-Roper, the rep for WBC, continuously attacked the rep for Anonymous with various insults while the rep continued to deny a war. But Ms. Phelps-Roper had a surprise waiting for her.

Once she told the Anonymous rep he was going to Hell, the rep responded with "I have a surprise for you." And directed viewers to with a notice from Anonymous.

As of Feb 25, all of WBC's websites were inaccessible

Anonymous 1

And I find this quite hilarious

But that's just the Ice Queen's opinion.
