Well, it's not like I want to infringe on freedom of expression and of religion, but in 1930's churches in the south of the us still preached that black folks were a sub race, do we want the same biggots deciding that they could use one more thing to keep women underpaid, under employed and under their thumbs?

My husband, my brother, my father join me in thinking that this law is over-reaching and in a world of kids being abused, abandoned in schools with no funding, forced to fight wars or be used as sex objets to war lords, this is not the one essential law to be passed.

It probably will and what it will show is that men still get to decide not to cover our birth control but cover their viagras... I suppose they can, they have the financial means to decide what deserve to be reimbursed and what doesn't, and with women not fighting for it and agreeing that a god we used for milleniums to keep people in their places can still be used to be kept under guys foot that can determine when we should conceive and how...

It's up to you!


I am not afraid to live my life and let these folks to back off, but alone I can't stop them, the way we won't be able to stop them when it will be at your door and most of us would have been silenced along the way...

I live in Georgia, and there is, if you can even imagine, WORSE political misogyny going on here. Make some noise, ladies. Seriously. This shit is not an issue for me, personally, but I have two daughters and I don't want them growing up in a world where the government controls their bodily functions.

[Some one actually created a bill about this? Forget about sexism for a second... In a world with teenage pregnancies and overpopulation, hunger, famine, high unemployment, and bone crushing poverty? Are they frigging insane? If I lived in Arizona, I'd do a lot more than sign a petition. I'd find a way to boot that man out of office. Maybe tar and feather him and ride him out on a rail, like they did back in Mark Twain's day.

I am beginning to worry about the West, whatever happened to that libertarian spirit you were so found of? No government involvement. My ass. What are you guys smoking out there in Arizona? I'm also wondering about other sections of my country. This is what happens when people aren't educated. Maybe we should make every man who runs for legislative office take an intelligence test first?]

I just signed the following petition addressed to: Arizona Sentate, Arizona State Legislature, Debbie Lesko.

Stop the Arizona birth control Bill

If this bill passes the senate then women of Arizona would be forced to provide documentation that birth control is for medical purposes only. The "company" would not be required to cover birth control if it was for prevention of conception. Additionally this bill would give companies the right to fire women if they discovered that she was using a contraceptive to prevent pregnancy

Cluegirl note: Please don't roll your eyes and click past because you're tired of this nonsense. We're all tired of this nonsense. We're exhausted with the Tiny White Men That Other White Men Seem To Insist Need To Live In Our Ladyparts, and we're tired of being treated like cattle and chattel just because we're capable of conceiving life, but WE CANNOT IGNORE SHIT LIKE THIS! We must speak up, in our thousands, and we must speak up EVERY DAMN TIME! We must roar and shake the bars because every time even one of these appalling little incremental atrocities passes without uproar, then the Tiny White Men use it as a platform from which to to launch another, only slightly more atrocious attack.

Don't get tired, get mad. Talk about it. Yell about it. SCREAM about it. Deny nay-sayers sex over it. Do. Not. Be. Worn. Down. Because once the chains go on, it takes a lot of blood to get them off again.

This signal needs to be louder than all the 'stop internet limitations' signals. This Conservative Agenda includes the enslavement of better than half the human race. It really, really is more important.

Act like it.

Common Sense Disclaimer: If you are not me, then these opinions, relative to the experience of being me, are not yours. Also, if your gender makes it impossible for you to become pregnant and carry a foetus inside your body without resorting to science and surgery, then you must expect that your opinions on a woman's right to choose when and whether to reproduce will NEVER carry as much weight with me as an actual breeder's opinions. For you, it's abstract. For us, it's real. Ergo, I expect any debate on this subject to be handled with maturity, courtesy, and restraint. No poo throwing, no tubthumping, no trolling, and no shaming. I will ban commenters who are deliberately provocative, rude, and cruel over this. Don't be douches.

You have been warned.

Well, I thought Politicians couldn't go much lower, boy do I stand corrected...

In this post by [ profile] tabaqui she is quoting some wonderful (irony here) remarks by State Rep. Terry England from Georgia found here in which he gleefully things that women shouldn't get abortion even if they carry still born babies... (I'd so want him to carry one for 9 months and talk to me about it after...)

The real video can be seen here

And the discussion at the post isreally enlightening, in particular the comment made by oatmelia here
why... would you be against "abortion" of a stillborn? are we just against any and all medical procedures that involve a woman's reproductive system now? if i get endometrial cancer are we just going to leave it alone in there in case a baby wants to land on it?

Sometimes, I wonder if we are going backward because we just can or if we reach a particular plateau and then can't get any smarter... Gosh and thinking I am leaving a world that stupid to my daughters...
