Nature is disgusting

December 24th, 2010 § Four comments

The Winter 2010 issue of California, the UC Berkeley alumni magazine, has a particularly gruesome article about bed bugs. My favorite part:

Bed bugs have the expected genitals, [an entomologist] says, and they’re fully capable of having insert-tab-A-into-slot-B sex to reproduce. That’s not what happens. This is: “The male grasps onto the female, and it’s very graphic, and they’re rolling around. It’s not a smooth-looking thing. And the male takes his reproductive organ and starts to stab her all over her body, all over her abdomen, and he punctures a hole through her—and remember she already has one that would work just fine—and he punctures a hole through her and releases his sperm into her blood.”


“It is interesting, and it’s really, really fun to watch,” [the entomologist] says.

From this excerpt, we can conclude the following:

  1. Entomologists are messed up.
  2. So are bed bugs.
  3. When a right-wing politician says we should only have sex in the way God intended, he means that he wants to stab women with his penis.
