I was writing a post about the Komen/Planned Parenthood controversy and alternative donation options (see here and here), when I read up on some of the other attacks on reproductive choice that have taken over this country… Like Virginia’s recent bill that would essentially make abortion unaccessible for low income women and requires rapey ultrasounds or Oklahoma’s ‘every sperm is sacred‘ bill or the religious right’s fight against national birth control coverage because it violates Separation of Church and State. ::eye roll::
And then I came across this photo of the Congressional committee debate about birth control coverage and completely lost my shit.
I am at a loss for words. At least ones that are articulate and reasonable and G-rated. This gif about sums up how I feel, barraged by endless attacks on women’s health and reproductive choice.
I mean, seriously? Seriously!?! In 2012, a panel of religious mostly white men talking about how my birth control coverage somehow hurts their relationship with their God are going to decide the law in this country? Well, they can go fuck themselves. And so can Virginia, who apparently hates poor women’s uteruses most of all. And Oklahoma’s legislature, and their “life begins at ejaculation” law that couldn’t even pass in Mississippi? MISSISSIPPI!! They can go also fuck themselves, if they are gonna be more ridiculous than Mississippi. I say again, MISSISSIPPI! And so can the sperm they ejaculate when wanking off, thanks to their insurance-covered viagra, natch. And Komen’s pink, sweat-shop made schlock? Yeah, you guessed it. They can go fuck themselves.
Until our bodies have the same freedom as their wang-a-doodled ones, they can all fuck off.
You heard me.
Fuck. All. Y’all.
