It was pretty warm here yesterday; sure, nothing compared to most of the country of late. But our air quality is kind of lousy and so even the high 80’s means I get to feel like an elephant is sitting on my chest. So, I am feeling particularly lazy. There are so many big blogs out there doing excellent work, and especially well on topics that make me turn purple in the face on GOOD temp and air days. For example:
You don’t believe in science fiction like “The Handmaid’s Tale”, eh? Well, think again. What’s next, surveilling pregnant women at home?
Ten places you don’t want to be a woman, because anti-abortion legislation will THREATEN your life…and the list is growing.(Thanks to Skippy.) Me? I wonder, since these states will make abortion SO difficult to obtain, will women with the financial wherewithal simply GO to other states? And then what? Laws to stop pregnant women at the state border, or pull them off airplanes? Questions to women alone about WHY they are going out of state? How far, exactly do the forced birth, “pro-fetus, fuck-women” types go?
And hey, you yahoos in Minot, N. Dakota? THIS is NOT what a fetus looks like at the gestation times when abortion happens; and if you gave MY kid one of these, I’d take it and shove it up your ASS so you could try it on for pro-fetal love.(Thanks to Tengrain!) This bullshit is what the rabid sorts TEACH their children that abortion is aborting, when in fact, most of the time it looks like about a tablespoon of something that could have come from inside of a cantaloupe melon. You don’t pass THAT out, do you, cause that’s a heck of a lot less “cuddly” and human looking.
And yes, we have pictures of our opinions of men telling women how to be walking incubators.
But then, some men have opinions, too. And beyond just thinking women should stay barefoot and pregnant. They think women should stop opposing violence AGAINST women, too.; Oh, wait….isn’t there a name for those kind of guys? Oh, wait…for fun, let’s all pick our favorite, ok?
How long now, before American women feel like the women of one of Afghanistan’s most “liberal” cities…Mazar-e-Sharif, and choose suicide as their nation is going back into the Taliban-darkened age? When does the insanity of “purity” and pregnancy being the only domains of women REALLY set in here in America?
