White republican cisgendered men move to the capitol with their barefoot-and-pregnant wives and obedient heteronormative children while everyone else is divvied up into 13 districts. The 13th district will be created simply to be immediately destroyed for the pleasure of the Capitol.
District 1: Women who use/have used “artificial” birth control and the men who are/were with them at the time of use
District 2: Black kids wearing hoodies
District 3: Anyone who has ever watched gay porn
District 4: Immigrants with English as a second language and aren’t that good at it yet
District 5: Heretics (a.k.a. people who are not Catholic or Evangelical)
District 6: Anyone who thinks Palestine exists
District 7: Boys who have ever used a pink bowling ball and all of their friends who are guilty by association
District 8: Women who have had miscarriages and the men who gave the faulty sperm
District 9: People who have read and understand the Constitution
District 10: People with at least a bachelor’s degree in something other than business or accounting
District 11: People who actually understand carbon dioxide and it’s dangers
District 12: Single parents or minorities who have ever used welfare
District 13: Women who have had abortions, people who have engaged in gay sex, and people who would fit into more than one category
For the past week, I’ve felt…off. Sick without the sore throat and cough. Just tired constantly with an ever present migraine. Highly sensitive to temperature changes. Achy everywhere. This never happens. What is this?
Maybe it’s Lupus.
Oh, okay. Are you sure?
Kay fine, but could someone run a test or something?
FINE then maybe we should try to figure out what it really is then.
I’m speaking, of course, about the required-transvaginal-ultrasound thing that seems to be the flavor-of-the-month in politics.
I do not care what your personal politics are. I think we can all agree that my right to swing my fist ends where your face begins.
I do not feel that it is reactionary or even inaccurate to describe an unwanted, non-indicated transvaginal ultrasound as “rape”. If I insert ANY object into ANY orifice without informed consent, it is rape. And coercion of any kind negates consent, informed or otherwise.”
This. Yes. Exactly.
Because we clearly don’t revictimize rape victims enough. Because we clearly don’t punish women going through the emotionally-trying process of having an abortion enough. Women getting abortions are whores anyway, right? Whats another phallic shaped object shoved into the vagina?…oh, just another day in the life.
The Life Defense Act of 2012, sponsored by state Rep. Matthew Hill (R-Jonesborough), mandates that the Tennessee Department of Health make detailed demographic information about every woman who has an abortion available to the public, including her age, race, county, marital status, education level, number of children, the location of the procedure and how many times she has been pregnant. Each report would also have to include the name of the doctor who performed the procedure.
Wow, what a blatant violation of HIPPA. Since when did anyone think someone’s medical history was up for public display? Oh, that’s right, since the republicans started having a flagrant disregard of federal law, right to privacy and women’s rights.
Mississippi trying to ban abortion for women who have embryos with detectable heartbeats
JACKSON, Miss. — Supporters of a bill that has passed in the Mississippi House and gone to the Senate say it would effectively ban abortion after six weeks of pregnancy.
A key provision would require doctors to search for a fetal heartbeat before performing an abortion and, if a heartbeat is found, would make going ahead with the procedure illegal. Physicians say a heartbeat can typically be detected at five to six weeks of pregnancy, with the possibility of hearing it earlier if the doctor uses a medically invasive transvaginal ultrasound.
House Judiciary B Committee Chairman Andy Gipson, R-Braxton, says the bill would ban 90 percent of the abortions in the state because most women seek abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detectable.
Want to know why most women seek abortion after the heartbeat is detectable? BECAUSE THE PREGNANCY ITSELF ISN’T EVEN DETECTABLE UNTIL ABOUT 5 WEEKS IN. “6 weeks pregnant” = 6 weeks since last period = actually only 4 weeks since ovulation and conception. Amount of weeks between periods for women on average = 4. How many weeks late a woman typically is by the time she even notices that she’s late = 1. This would leave exactly… maybe just a few days for the woman to go from learning shes pregnant to actually having the abortion. Days. In most clinics, you can’t just walk in and get an abortion on the spot. You have to set up an appointment for a time the clinic can do it. Most clinics don’t even preform abortions more than 2 days of the week. And did I mention that THERE IS ALMOST NOTHING TO SEE ON AN ULTRASOUND AT 5 WEEKS. I mean, just look:
That weird fleshy butterfly-shaped spinal column thing is the “baby” which is the size of a mustard seed. Technology is good enough now that it can detect the heartbeat of an embryo the size of a mustard seed. The very time it takes from learning you are pregnant to deciding that you definitely want an abortion to finding an open clinic to getting finances set up to actually getting to the appointment is the difference between a detectable heartbeat or not. This is making abortion illegal without technically making abortion illegal.
What this bill will really do if it passes the senate: overburden clinics on the outskirts of Mississippi.
Things people who know nothing about climate science say about climate change
"It’s just the earth going through it’s natural warming cycle."
Let’s take a look at the numbers, shall we?
Weird how this warming greenhouse gas shoots up with the increasing use of fossil fuels. Coincidence, I’m sure.
"Look, it’s blizzarding out. Global warming is a sham!"
"The difference between weather and climate is that weather consists of the short-term (minutes to months) changes in the atmosphere. Most people think of weather in terms of temperature, humidity, precipitation, cloudiness, brightness, visibility, wind, and atmospheric pressure, as in high and low pressure… climate is the description of the long-term pattern of weather in a particular area" - NASA
"Organisms will adapts to it anyway, so it doesn’t matter"
"Coral reefs are dying around the world.In particular, coral mining, agricultural and urban runoff, pollution (organic and inorganic), overfishing, blast fishing, disease, and the digging of canals and access into islands and bays are localized threats to coral ecosystems. Broader threats are sea temperature rise, sea level rise and pH changes from ocean acidification, all associated with greenhouse gas emissions." - Wiki
"Climate change over the past 30 years has produced numerous shifts in the distributions and abundances of species and has been implicated in one species-level extinction…we predict, on the basis of mid-range climate-warming scenarios for 2050, that 15–37% of species in our sample of regions and taxa will be ‘committed to extinction’." - Nature Publishing
While they are at it, their taxes should also go towards abortion for low income women. If my taxes go for shit I don’t believe in, like say war, then theirs should go towards abortion. It’s only fair.
$230 dollars per year per person with income of $37,000 a year goes to funding wars in afganistan and iraq alone. Do I get to opt out of that? No. No I don’t. “Wahh, Boo, my tax dollars might go to things I don’t agree with!” Yeah. Join the fucking club.
"Demands for Limbaugh’s sponsors to pull their ads from his show rocketed through cyberspace, and at least four companies, Quicken Loans, LegalZoom online legal document service, and bedding retailers Sleep Train and Sleep Number, bowed to the pressure."
“So Miss Fluke and the rest of you feminazis, here’s the deal. If we are going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.”—
"Can you imagine if you were her parents how proud…you would be?" he said. "Your daughter … testifies she’s having so much sex she can’t afford her own birth control pills and she wants President Obama to provide them, or the Pope."
Hmm… I wonder if I have enough rage-gifs to post that would properly express my rage.
Let’s see here…
NEWSFLASH LIMBAUGH: A woman could have sex with 19 different people a day or her husband twice a week and either way, SHE WOULD NEED THE SAME AMOUNT OF BIRTH CONTROL PILLS. Believe it or not, birth control pills don’t become less effective the more you have sex. You take one a day and you won’t get pregnant. It’s not like “Oh, you have how much sex? Well we are gunna need to quadruple you birth control prescription, young lady!” IT DOESN’T WORK LIKE THAT. YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE SCIENCE OF BIRTH CONTROL PILLS. YOU MORE OR LESS HAVE NO RIGHT TO SPEAK AUTHORITATIVELY ABOUT ANYTHING, LET ALONE ESTROGEN AND PROGESTIN AND THEIR EFFECTS ON OVULATION. 100 partners or 1 partner = one pack a month. Prostitute or monogamous relationship = one pack a month. Always. All the time. Always.
