Now That Just Makes Me Mad
Listening to men discuss who should have control over women’s reproductive health really pisses me off. Many men staunchly defend a woman’s right to choose, but the fact that I, a woman, have to listen to a bunch of men on Capitol Hill debating the topic really makes me want to scream. The Family Research Council, Focus on the Family, The Christian Coalition, Sen. Coburn and Samuel Alito can all go to hell. Preach your values to your flock all you want, but do not cross the line by debating, much less supporting, a legislative or judicial agenda that will infringe upon my right to do whatever I want with my own damn body.
Feel free to lie to your followers about the science of Plan B and suggest that women will only be encouraged to be promiscuous if it is made available over the counter. Go ahead and call us murderers for choosing abortion over raising unwanted children in poverty, but do not expect us to fall for your false science and fake concern. If you truly cared about children, you would make sure there is support for the already born, and if you gave a crap about promiscuity you would go after Viagra. But no, in your twisted little minds, only women are weak minded enough to be enticed into "slutty behavior" (an over-simplification of female sexuality that says more about you than it does about us) by the availability of pharmaceuticals that widen their options. If you want to have a say in the personal decisions women must make regarding their reproductive health, go get yourself a uterus, until then, shut the fuck up!
