So long, Rick…and thanks for all the wanks.

Stupid Sex Tricks: Dept. of Unenforceable Laws, Ukraine

Straight from the Wide World of WTF, we get wind of some wildly stupid fetus fetishism from Eastern Europe: “An incredible project of law was presented before the parliament of Ukraine: banning the missionary position in sexual relations.” That was the headline on Actualidad RT. The authors of this controversial project of law explained that ...

Shouting “Abortion!” in a crowded blogosphere

No, human rights — including womens’ rights — are not like free speech rights which some (though not I) believe can and should be legally curtailed in the interest of the so-called “greater good”. In fact, the state’s prerogative to impose its will ends where my uterus begins. Human Rights — including women’s rights — ...

This one’s for you (you know who you are)

Free Speech!

“Speechies“?  Hello?? Is this thing on?

Woodworth’s Wank Revisited

Like many progressives, fern hill is looking for a way to unite the opposition parties, and she may have found one. Regular readers will recall MP Stephen Woodworth’s bilious bleating on Twitter about “when life begins”, which unlike most Canadians, Woodworth contends is “in the petri dish”.  His embryo-obsessed Twit-jaculations started in December and evolved ...

The Vagina Ideologues

Oh joy, rapture and crapture!  More excited delirium from the “Government-Small-Enough-to-Crawl-Up-Your-Vagina-and-Police-Your-Uterus” crowd: Conservative Arizona lawmakers hope Arizona will join a handful of other states in banning most abortions after 20 weeks of gestation, as proposed in House Bill 2036. House Bill 2800, which would strip Planned Parenthood of federal funds for health-care services, is still ...

Tsk, what a shame

And the beat-down goes on at Komen for the Cure.  Well, what did they expect? That’s just what happens when you let fetus fetishists run the show: Two top executives at Susan G. Komen for the Cure have announced their resignation, amid reports that the breast cancer charity is struggling to raise money and repair ...

Happy Women’s Day. Have you found YOUR feminism today?

Don’t you love that ad? I sure do. It’s a timely reminder of just what we’re all up against. Here’s another: ThinkProgress was being a little low-ball on the count there, because I spotted WAY more than just 70 sexist smears coming out of that juddering piehole. Didja notice that near the end, they didn’t ...

Shakedown!

I guess Karen Handel has never heard about the First Rule of Holes — when you’re in one, stop digging: Karen Handel, the former senior vice president of public policy at Susan G. Komen for the Cure, accused Planned Parenthood of extortion during an appearance on the Christian Broadcasting Network. […] “It’s clear that Planned ...

Who knows more about women’s health than women?

These guys do: Women’s Health Experts Speak Out from Judd Nelson Because when a middle-aged (or older) man tells you to put an aspirin between your knees, you know he knows what he’s talkin’ about. Right, ladies?

Vaginia, I mean Virginia, backs off on State-Enforced Vaginal Probe Law

Apparently a law mandating non-consensual (ie. forced) vaginal probing isn’t something a Vice Presidential hopeful wants on his resume. Accordingly, Virginia Governor and Vice Presidential wet-dreamer Bob McDonnell has backed away from the bill that’s come to be known by names like “The State-Enforced Transvaginal Probe Law”.  Because, well dangit, who knew just how invasive ...

Ron Paul, Contraceptives & Abortion

Of the four(4) GOP primary candidates still standing, the only one I can even come close to listening to with a serious ear is libertarian Ron Paul.  Now before everyone jumps all over the comments section with the “Ron Paul is no friend of progressives!!” stuff, yeah yeah, I get that, but I don’t have ...

Stupid (Anti-)Sex Tricks: The American Lie League, and other hilarious crapagandroids

Need a good laugh tonight? Here ya go: Mmmmmm, penis cupcakes and vagina macaroons! Yummy! Jezebel calls this “the most hilariously lewd thing you’ll ever see”, and they’re not far from the truth. This hysterical video inadvertently gives away the makers’ own creepy fetishes. Calling Planned Parenthood a pusher of sex-as-drugs-to-children, and then offering up ...

Goodbye and good riddance

Two obnoxious, hateful, right-wing “family” things went bye-bye today: Karen Fucking Handel from the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and the last faint flicker of hope for Prop Hate in California. I’m sure neither will be sadly missed.

Winning! (Part Duh)

What took you so long, shithead?: A high-ranking official resigned Tuesday from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast-cancer charity after a dispute over whether the group should give funding to Planned Parenthood, according to a letter obtained by The Associated Press. Karen Handel, the charity’s vice president for public policy, told Komen officials ...

WTF? A Poem?

WTF? A bunch of racist sexist homophobic nutbarsGOP nazis spreading shit like this is somehow okay in the land of the free, home of the brave? Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA) pretends to prevent race-based abortions, steals from the civil rights … Continue reading →

Last but not Least, the Predictable Whinefest

Fetus fetishists whining and crying victim because they didn’t get their way with Komen/Planned Parenthood?  Now whoever coulda seen that coming!?  K-Lo breaks out the violins on Twitter: But not before the deranged SUZANNE had added her dulcet tones to the rising tide of whine: Oh well, I suppose it changes things up from regular ...

The Komen Decision that was Totally Not Political

…but was secretly nurtured and guided by former Bush Press Secretary and Planned Parenthood critic Ari Fleisher: Ari Fleischer, former press secretary for George W. Bush and prominent right-wing pundit, secretly helped guide Komen Foundation’s disastrous strategy regarding Planned Parenthood. Fleischer personally interviewed candidates for the position of “Senior Vice President for Communications and External ...

#WINNING(?)

Well, maybe. At least consider the Komen controversy well and truly #occupied: The Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation backed down from its decision to cut funding for Planned Parenthood, which provides abortion and birth control services, a move that had thrust the world’s largest breast cancer charity into a deeply politicized controversy. Komen ...

All About the Timing

The movie “Pink Ribbons“, which explores breast cancer fundraising by groups like Susan G Komen, is being released tomorrow.  Komen’s decision to cut funding to Planned Parenthood has been in the works for some time now; one top Komen official quit over it in December. As Dave suggests, the Komen Foundation had to know “Pink ...

#Occupy The Cure

I’ve either got the flu or I’m nauseated by the Susan G. Komen/Planned Parenthood fiasco. I’ll take Door #2, SGK/PP, for $200 — the donation that will now go fucking directly to Planned Parenthood since Komen made the ill-advisedly cruel  decision to aquiesce to the ideological pressure of fetus fetishists on its board and cut ...

No more fucking Pink Things

I am the daughter of a breast cancer survivor. And I have just sworn never again to buy another “Pink for the Cure” (or whatever they call it) thing. Not that I don’t love my pink long-sleeved Columbia t-shirt, or my pink lipsticks (all 11 of ‘em), but this whole damn pink thing has got ...

For Two Saskatchewan Fetus Fetishist MPs

For Brad Trost and Maurice Vellacott, two MPs who are disgrace to Saskatchewan, Politics’n’Poetry gives you this:

Reproductive McCarthyism and a new nadir of authoritarian dumbness

Frankly, it didn’t surprise me a bit that SUZANNE would be All In with the idea of publishing a database of personal information and photos of gynecologists and other reproductive health professionals whose services include — but are not limited to — abortion. How awesome she must imagine it would feel to stand before the ...
