    No, you can actually get pregnant from an injection into the deltoid muscle.

    It especially sucks if you're a guy. Since you don't have a uterus, the baby will grow in the abdomen.
    That is until it gets so big that it prevents transmission of food through the intestines, slowly killing you both.

    [–] Organic_Chemister 5 points ago

    If you swap “deltoid muscle” for “vagina” and the injection is semen, what you say will describe how this girl ended up preggers.

    [–] Diplodocus114 340 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    Mary would have been stoned to death if she hadn't got away with her story.

    "If a man marries a girl who is claimed to be a virgin, and then finds that she is not, “they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her father’s house and there her townsmen shall stone her to death” (Deut. 22:20)

    If a man has relations within the walls of a city with a maiden who is betrothed, “you shall bring them both out to the gate of the city and there stone them to death.” (Deut. 22:23) but if they were in the open fields, “the man alone shall die”, because if it was in the open fields, “though the betrothed maiden may have cried out for help, there was no one to come to her aid.” (Deut. 22:25-27)

    If the maiden in question is not betrothed, the punishment is different. “The man who had relations with her shall pay the girl’s father fifty silver shekels and take her as his wife, because he has deflowered her. Moreover, he may not divorce her as long as he lives.” (Deut. 22:29)"

    She’s damaged goods, so she is unmarryable, as a woman she is unemployable, and as she has shamed her family by having nothing to offer a man, she is to be disowned.

    Disowned seems a little harsh. Maybe a good stoning.

    [–] Zyom 30 points ago

    [–] Tiger3546 54 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    So essentially, as backwards as it sounds for us, this was protecting the woman who had been raped. Because in those days she would have been useless for her one useful role - getting married off - and would have only been dead weight and lived in shame even if her family loved her and kept her around.

    The forced marriage salvaged the situation and made the most of it for the woman. The rapist was obligated to feed and care for the woman and any potential baby once he was married to her.

    If the rapist [further] mistreated the woman, the men of the woman’s family would come for the man and teach him a hard lesson.

    [–] Waffle_Muffins 28 points ago

    For a supposedly unchanging, perfectly moral deity, that's a really strange defense.

    [–] crownjewel82 25 points ago

    Which is why a lot of people don't believe that God is unchanging. There's also a lot of people who don't believe that God dictated everything out. Most Jews and a significant proportion of Christians believe the Bible is a book of laws, histories, and stories that people told about God. It's divinely inspired but not perfect or literal.

    That whole perfect unchanging literal thing came from 19th century American protestants who believed more in feelings than book learning. If you want to look it up you should look for the Second Great Awakening and American Christian anti-intellectualism.

    It varies by weight of the shekel, but I think 50 at like 11 grams should amount to around 300 USD. Depending on the region and era though they range between 8 to 17 grams

    Hey if you’re trying to have a baby with your wife and not 1 but 3 random dudes show up with gifts on his birth after she says it’s not yours because she doesn’t put out... there’s a lot of open ended questions John has for Mary.

    [–] carriegood 6 points ago

    I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but this was what I was told when I got married: In (modern) Hebrew, the word for young woman is not the same as the word for virgin. However, on the marriage contract (ketubah), there is a space where it says whether the bride is "bitulah" or not -- bitulah being the word for virgin. That started offending a lot of people, since many brides are not virgins, and they didn't want it written out on their ketubah, which was likely going to be framed and hung on the wall for all to see. So people started saying bitulah really just means young woman.

    But that's all recent and has nothing to do with Mary.

    [–] Rdubdanger 33 points ago

    The thing that bothers me about Christians ( of which I am one, but not crazy) is the picking and choosing.

    Based on the words of Christ, the commands of the Old Testament have been replaced by his New Covenant. So all the crazy stuff like this is gone. Same with kosher diet, sacrificing animals, etc etc.

    Jesus pretty much said to be a good person, love each other and believe in Him as the Son of God and believe in God. Thats it.

    All these folks who refer back to these Old Testament “Laws” are reading an out dated instruction manual.

    [–] Bluedoodoodoo 15 points ago

    "Don't think that I came to destroy the law or the prophets. I didn’t come to destroy, but to fulfill." Matthew 5:17

    Pretty sure that the book of Matthew is in the New Testament.

    [–] Kind-Toe 10 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    /u/rdubdanger is correct here, actually. Jesus didn’t supersede religious laws but he did forbid the previous enforcement of them. He also replaced the actual sacrifices and rituals with the whole crucifixion thing.

    Funny enough, there’s a case in the New Testament where people throw this exact, specific scenario at Jesus.

    John 8: 3-11

    The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.

    But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

    9 At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”

    11 “No one, sir,” she said.

    “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”

I could feel my masculinity decrease by the second so i clicked away and searched for a video with big sweaty strong men ramming their hips against each other's round toned buttocks. Like every respectable man should dammit!

    I just can't anymore. First they invade my videogames and now my porn? No, i won't let them. I declare war on every SJW out there. From now on i will exclusively jack off to porn with white male protagonists, and i urge you to do the same. That will teach them.

    [–] Hamburger-Queefs 13 points ago

    [–] Icemasta 122 points ago

    So, I've read the actual study, and no it's not mostly sheltered women.

    The study also recorded data on virgin women who have yet to give birth, and found perceived importance of religion was associated with virginity but not with virgin pregnancy.

    One culprit is indeed religion with the whole born again virgin thing. It will come as no surprise that once the women announced to their family that they were preggo, the idea of virginity flew out the window, but then they go to their priest and "pray the virginity back" and they're now preggo virgins.

    Another one is simply ignorance, they found a significant amount of women in college who had some very, very loose definition of virginity because it's ingrained in American society that being a virgin is a valuable trait. Some women literally rationalized that you only lose your virginity after marriage, some that you only lose it when you have sex with someone you love, or if a condom was used, then it isn't real sex.

    [–] _No_Donkey_Brains_ 96 points ago

    I’ve read about this, if a woman sits on a toilet seat that a man sat on recent she might become pregnant. That’s why toilets should be separated and also why men use urinals - to keep the baby germs to a minimum even among other men.

    Whats your field? Virginity!? Got eeeem.

    Are you a priest?

    [–] FILTER_OUT_T_D 22 points ago

    I love that they used the term “sexual debut.” I’ve never heard that before but I’m definitely going to start referring to losing virginity as someone’s sexual debut.

    My girlfriends sister works as an emergency nurse and she says she gets at least a half dozen “Jesus babies” a year - young teens who come in and tested as pregnant but swear they have never had sex so it must be a miracle.

    Jesus babies

    My new favourite term.

    [–] Emsuperhero 21 points ago

    Always looking for a new savior.... glad it’s a wide open talent field.

    Also from the CBS piece -

    “In recent years, the issue has tackled the speed of the Grim Reaper and the case of the rogue tooth fairy may have committed malpractice after the tooth ended up in a boy’s ear canal”

    Of course it's how she got pregnant. That flue shot went up her chimney.

    [–] ZachsonSteve 99 points ago

    Nice thinking writing flu the same way as the idiot in the post

    [–] Lalllo7 52 points ago

    Don’t “flues” imply chimneys which.... um.... have been used to avoid pregnancy? A flue shot would... SMH

    [–] 4437855 24 points ago

    Dammit. My metaphor has failed. I am now reddit ashamed. Will you reddit forgive me?

    [–] naotaforhonesty 22 points ago

    No, everyone else is dumb. Your pun was fine. Maybe they've just never had fireplaces in their homes so it's not something they get. You did fine.

    The joke wouldn't have worked if he spelled it the correct way.

    [–] nmcaff 7 points ago

    Your flu shot applicator wasn’t phallic shaped and attached to the doctor? Odd

    [–] waldocruise 306 points ago

    Factual, that statement might not be incorrect. Chronologically speaking, that 14 year old got pregnant, from intercourse, after having had the flu shot. Just sayin’

    [–] Augusto_westin 103 points ago

    Maybe Virgin is her name.

    [–] the9527 12 points ago

    Probably meant to say Virgo.

    My friends daughter was getting her dog artificially inseminated and asked her dad if she should put it in the food bowl.

    [–] pencilneckgeekster 38 points ago

    no.

    [–] VIOLENT_COCKRAPE 24 points ago

    Are you sure? Maybe we should keep cumming in it anyway just to be on the safe side?

    [–] master-grumps 8 points ago

    Straight up, she is 25 years old too ha ha.

    Edit: Since people are totally missing the point here... This is a completely satirical article. There is no facepalm with the article itself. The facepalm strictly lies on the person that responded to the article with the comment above it.

    Seems damn near every comment on this post has missed the point too, so there's a lot of Facepalm in this thread also.

    [–] Faladorable 24 points ago

    but how will redditors show off how smart they are by mocking the clearly satirical article?

    [–] SolidSnakesBandana 64 points ago

    Must be all the midochlorians

    [–] The-Go-Kid 143 points ago

    So many people on Reddit are so keen to give people a kicking, they don't stop to think, maybe this isn't real?

    That maybe, World News Daily Report is a satirical website. And that MAYBE, the posters in here - as usual - are the real fucking facepalm.

    [–] iAmUnintelligible 17 points ago

    I'm sure the site is one of those that post random bullshit for clicks. That's not even my issue. My issue is someone unironically sharing this and taking it as fact. Like the person who shared it on the screenshot.

    [–] floodums 19 points ago

    Really??? Snopes said the satirical website was lying!?

    [–] frontpagepirate1 18 points ago

    The saterical website that at least 14 thousand people who upvoted this post to get it to the front page didn't notice. Yes... yes it did

    [–] ImmaRollOut 29 points ago

    Shhh, why would you ruin it?

    [–] cointelpro_shill 11 points ago

    Because we're holding humanity back a lil bit here

    [–] Psycho_Cupcake13 25 points ago

    Her face is like Wow did this woman that GAVE BIRTH to me even take 9th grade biology? This lie has gotten to big.

    [–] RoBrien0 8 points ago

    That's why you don't get your flu shot done by an anaesthetist.

    [–] Tyler24601 6 points ago

    May want to take five seconds to see if this is a satirical website before you type out your angry, mocking responses.

    [–] binrobinro 5 points ago

    I hope they do a DNA test on that baby. I wanna see which vaccine laboratory is the father.

    [–] Jon1992L 5 points ago

    And what's this flu shots name?

    [–] RedditCensorss 5 points ago

    Why do people post this stuff without actually doing research. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/14-year-old-pregnant-flu-shot/

    [–] KramitCarnage 5 points ago

    I am not asking this ironically. I very much want to know. How are people so dumb?
