prokaryote?[edit]

Is a prokaryote. ? You do know that germs fall in this category right?--TimS 15:09, 24 May 2007 (CDT)

 :) I didn't bother to look up eukaryote, but I was pretty sure what I meant, yes. humanbe in 15:17, 24 May 2007 (CDT)
Wow, why didn't I see that connection! -Icewedge 15:13, 24 May 2007 (CDT)
 :) --TimS 15:35, 24 May 2007 (CDT)

I have to copy that to Talk:Phyllis_Schlafly/vandalism humanbe in 20:05, 25 May 2007 (CDT)

I am really trying hard not to add "mother of a mostly straight brood." Flippin;-)

Over on this side of the pond, we use "confirmed batchelor". if that helps. αιρδισΗταλκ 14:20, 25 May 2007 (CDT)
LMFAO! Thanks, Air! Flippin;-)
Just like Sir Cliff Richard... Trashbat 14:24, 25 May 2007 (CDT)
My father loves to recall an old Marty Feldman routine where he goes on at length about this fellow he knew, and all the men he was friends with..a lot of sailors and so forth, coming to visit him every night..always coming back to the phrase, "Funny he never married." --Kels 14:25, 25 May 2007 (CDT)
See the original article and this edit. For what it's worth, I'd be fine with that, but I took it out because the consensus seemed to be against commenting on things like that, no matter how funny they are. --jtltalk 18:27, 25 May 2007 (CDT)
I am officially speaking against that so-called consensus. Calling him gay is not an attack, it's a simple description. Assuming it's an insult is tacitly agreeing that being gay is a bad thing. --Kels 20:23, 25 May 2007 (CDT)
To us, yes, it is a simple truth. To the family, it is a deep dark secret, and that is a very important factor in describing these arch right wing political types. Our Vice President is another miserable hypocrite on this issue, which is why I created the second category (well, redlinked it) you'll see on her article. humanbe in 21:03, 25 May 2007 (CDT)
I noticed that already, well played. But honestly, given what we say about Roger and Andy in their articles (or rather what you guys say, I haven't contributed there (yet)), why are we shying away from calling a gay guy, well, a gay guy? --Kels 21:05, 25 May 2007 (CDT)
One maybe-essential difference is, as far as I know at least, John hasn't participated in Conservapedia or any other online forum. --jtltalk 21:39, 25 May 2007 (CDT)
I was under the understanding he was out? Is that wrong? If he is, it's just a simple declaration, nothing to get worked up over, same as saying he was white or liked the colour blue or something. --Kels 21:46, 25 May 2007 (CDT)

He is out. The fact that ASchlafly suppresses all mention of John's sexuality, whilst giving tacit approval to CP's rabid anti-gay rhetoric, makes it noteworthy, I'm afraid. If he'd come right out and say, "Yes, I believe my brother's going to Hell," then I'd happily support never mentioning John again. --Robledo 21:54, 25 May 2007 (CDT)

Uncanny[edit]

The resemblance is remarkable, don't you think? --Kels 22:49, 19 December 2007 (EST)

Yes: one is a blood drinking ghoul from the depths of hell and the other is a vampire. CЯacke® 22:53, 19 December 2007 (EST)

Wizard of Oz reference[edit]

While this claim is not backed up by the closed captions on Wizard of Oz.... In the commentary on a Simpsons episode, when we see the marching guards outside Burns' mansion, they mention that their chant is actually "All we own, we owe." Take it for what it's worth.--Lardashe

Skeleton[edit]

Phyllis Schlafly, in a rare recent photograph and wearing a fake Chanel.

Someone whose good at drawing can perhaps turn this picture into a skeletion. The horizonal lines of the checks can become ribs. The face of octogenarian Phylllis can become a half dead face coming from a skull.Barbara Shack 14:48, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

Suggest it to user:Kels... she can draw quite well. humanUser talk:Human 14:55, 2 April 2008 (EDT)
Would that make her Schlafetor? Who would be Man-E-Faces? --Edgerunner76...and a hotplate! 08:18, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

So what exactly are we talking here? Just a skeleton with plastic hair? Or Phyllis with her flesh melting away or something? Not sure if people actually have ribs in their faces, though... --Kels@work

Not "cheeks" but "checks", like the ones in her coat. Rational Edfaith 13:39, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

Nice[edit]

seemed so appropriate

Phyllis is against the signing of the UN rights of the child apparently: "many dangerous treaties, including the International Criminal Court, the Kyoto Protocol, CEDAW, and the Convention on the Rights of the Child." [1]. what a lovely woman! SusanG  ContribsTalk 23:36, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

Hehe, re:cartoon, I used to have that radio... ħumanUser talk:Human 17:26, 25 August 2008 (EDT)

Anal style.[edit]

I have a question about the {{fact}} template. Is the dispute over whether there are details out there to be found, or is it because there may be some editors of RationalWiki who want to know them? --Edgerunner76...and a hotplate! 12:20, 20 November 2008 (EST)

I think it's just there to be funny... ħumanUser talk:Human 16:20, 20 November 2008 (EST)

I think this section is more worthy for Uncyclopedia, not for RW.--86.101.112.46 02:22, 2 January 2009 (EST)

Stellar! ħumanUser talk:Human 15:37, 2 January 2009 (EST)
Personally, I think it is a bit over the top. Aboriginal Noise Oh, what a lovely tea party! 17:58, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

The Assfly is indeed a Catholic[edit]

He has said so himself a number of times. Hell, moonie, mormon or filthy papist, it's all the same to him as long as you hate them godless liberals. --JeevesMkII 04:28, 16 December 2008 (EST)

Ask Proxima Centauri. She seems obsessed with the topic. ħumanUser talk:Human 23:31, 16 December 2008 (EST)

Facebook[edit]

She does live in St. Louis, MO, right? Do you think that could be her on Facebook? Silly Mr. Cat 03:43, 29 June 2009 (UTC) Fb-block-list.PNG

Or someone impersonating her. Totnesmartin 09:14, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
It's someone making updates for her, like on certain events. Silly Mr. Cat 18:47, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Rule 34[edit]

Has anyone rule 34'd her yet? or should I ask 4chan? Silly Mr. Cat 18:47, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

hehehe, type "Misogyny" in the search[edit]

I was typing "Misogyny" (meaning hatred and fear towards females) and it redirects into this page about phyllis schlafly. I kinda find it humorous, but that word deserves it's own article.--Dark Paladin X (talk) 20:02, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Sure, get it started? Don't forget to "see also" Mommie Dearest... ħumanUser talk:Human 20:58, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Comical mention[edit]

Mrs. Schlafly was recently the punchline in a local comic strip and citing the "informalness" of this site, I thought the editors might be able to include it.

this link should take take you to the April 1st, 2010 strip of "La Cucaracha".--4.131.141.45 (talk) 15:44, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, someone saw it & posted (on Saloon bar?) about it. yummy Toast&  honey(or marmalade) 15:58, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Silver?[edit]

Silver? - David Gerard (talk) 17:22, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Book on her[edit]

[2] I wonder who asked for the book review? Nil Einne (talk) 17:10, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

West Wing[edit]

Holy crap. How many times have I watched The West Wing? About 10. How many times have I noticed that Mamma Schlafly gets a namecheck? until tonight...none.

Sam: What could possibly be your problem with the ERA?

Ainsley: It's redundant

Josh: Why are we talking about the ERA?

Sam: She's doing a thing

Josh: Yeah, but it's not back or anything though is it?

Sam: Certainly not if Phyllis Schlafly over here has her way


Hardly a big deal, it's just that I never noticed this before. Worm(t | c) 19:06, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Requested Citation[edit]

For the passage, "Schlafly's next-door neighbor in Alton, a housewife and active Republican, accused her of being 'an exponent of an extreme right-wing philosophy—a propagandist who deals in emotion and personalities where it is not necessary to establish facts or prove charges.'", I have edited the entry, requesting a citation. This is quite the specific claim, and a quick Google doesn't seem to find any corroborating evidence for the quote as it normally does. I will continue to look for independent verification, and add a citation if I am able to find one. ChrisB (talk) 08:17, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

Good call, Chris. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 08:19, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

When to keep and when to get rid of a joke[edit]

Currently, the article is included in Category:Animals. It's an okay joke, but it's also an incredibly juvenile joke—you could slap that on any person we didn't like. I can take it or leave it either way, but I'd like everyone else's input on when a joke should be kept versus when it should be removed. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 08:28, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

Call her Syphillis when we would call Andy the Assfly?[edit]

Has that nice disgusting quality to it. Bootmii 04:50, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

But seriously, even funspace? Pweeze? Bootmii 15:43, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
We're not ED, we're trying to move on from CP and we're trying to attract sensible scientific authors and serious investors. We don't need juvenile name-calling in article space. Redchuck.gif ГенгисYou have the right to be offended; and I have the right to offend you.Moderator 23:15, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
Phyllis Schlafly was a vocal activist who fought against the progressive movement's attempt to reduce the disparity in opportunity between men and women in the workplace, and who was personally responsible for much of the destruction of the Equal Rights Amendment's hopes of passage. She remains a delegate for the GOP and pushes for a continuation of backwards social policies. Her accomplishments have been vile. They merit an articulate response and condemnation, not the wearisome grinding of a juvenile nickname that would begin as tedious as the oft-repeated "Assfly" has become.
You are terrible, and when the sun ages and swells into a majestic red giant and the Earth falls from its orbit and is consumed in nuclear fire, your proposal will remain the worst idea ever conceived by man, surpassed in its idiocy only perhaps by Bio-Dome. In the black stillness of the universe's heat death, when all is quiet and even the minutest particles have decayed and their uncertain remains do not even shiver, there will be an echo of your foolishness.
No.--ADtalkModerator 23:22, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
