The rapey news trend of late

August 23, 2012


The news has been awfully rapey lately.  And I mean awful.  Obviously it began with Todd Akin’s comment about Legit Rape and women’s superawesome magical defense against pregnancy in such cases of Legit Rape. “First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare,” Akin told KTVI-TV in an interview posted Sunday. “If […]

August 17, 2011


Iowa GOP Debate Rick Santorum on abortion – YouTube .   Just notice how Mr. Santorum talks about the father (read: violent perpetrator) and the fetus, but there is barely a mention of the woman who would be victimized perpetually.  (transcript below) Funny how for so many men (especially those of the religious persuasion) only view […]

The GOP debate in Iowa shockingly reveals the candidates are *completely* out of touch with women’s reality..

August 12, 2011


The GOP debate in Iowa reveals the candidates have no grasp of reproductive health « Dr. Jen Gunter.  I think, based on this years legislative sessions nationwide and the recent HHS ruling, it’s safe to say that abortion will be an even hotter topic than normal in the upcoming presidential race.

First, I think it’s super wack how humans think they own the ocean.  Motherfuckers, you don’t own the ocean! Nothing owns the ocean; many creatures inhabit it, and humans aren’t even one of them!  We are the last beings who should claim dominion of the freaking ocean.  Let alone get mad when other people “encroach” on […]

I know I post a lot of articles about women’s reproductive justice, especially abortion, and most often these posts include long-winded rants wherein i deconstruct common notions around the issue (sums up most of my blogging, really). But here’s something really simple to think about: 1 in 3 women have at least one abortion in their lifetime. […]

New racist anti-choice billboard campaign to target Latinas

June 8, 2011


New racist anti-choice billboard campaign to target Latinas: I’m disgusted, but not particularly surprised. Like Steph, as a Latina, I’m angry that my community is being targeted. But I’m not more angry than I was when I saw the first billboards attacking African-American women. I already felt attacked by those original billboards, because these tactics aren’t actually about […]

Lawyers for a conservative […]
