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 . . . → Read More: Stupid Sex Tricks: Dept. of Unenforceable Laws, Ukraine

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 — . . . → Read More: Shouting “Abortion!” in a crowded blogosphere

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 . . . → Read More: Woodworth’s Wank Revisited

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 . . . → Read More: The Vagina Ideologues

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 . . . → Read More: Tsk, what a shame

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, . . . → Read More: Happy Women’s Day. Have you found YOUR feminism today?


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 . . . → Read More: Shakedown!

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 . . . → Read More: Vaginia, I mean Virginia, backs off on State-Enforced Vaginal Probe Law

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 . . . → Read More: Ron Paul, Contraceptives & Abortion

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

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 . . . → Read More: Winning! (Part Duh)

WTF? A Poem?

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 . . . → Read More: Last but not Least, the Predictable Whinefest

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 . . . → Read More: The Komen Decision that was Totally Not Political


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 . . . → Read More: #WINNING(?)

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 . . . → Read More: All About the Timing

#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 . . . → Read More: #Occupy The Cure

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 . . . → Read More: No more fucking Pink Things

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 . . . → Read More: Reproductive McCarthyism and a new nadir of authoritarian dumbness
