Yup, I'm done with the world for today. If they can not comprehend the necessity of something so very obvious, there is nothing more to say that does not constitute shouting into the void.

*facepalm* How the fuck the Republicans are considered a viable party in the US is beyond me.

It's mind-boggling.

I heard this in Buffy's voice. Which was nice, because then I imagined her staking this douchenozzle.

I use the pill to manage chronic pain I get from endometriosis. My heart really goes out to US women to have to deal with this constant bullshit. The thought of losing something that improves my quality of life is terrifying.

In the case of Mr. Friess, I suggest a knee between the knees for birth control. And I'm saying that as a guy. Who would not hesitate to kick this fucker in the groin for this shit.

Shit. I can't take birth control and I'm allergic to aspirin. Guess I gotta tell my husband we're having a baby this year!

You know what? Even if the Pill was ONLY used for birth control, it still wouldn't excuse this slut-shaming, woman-hating fuckery.

Basically what this fuck wants is for women to be subservient baby making machines who aren't able to make reproductive choices on their own, and that's UNACCEPTABLE.

Fuck I am so close to ragequitting the internet of the day.

A baby-making machine won't ever compete with a man for a job, or make him feel inadequate, or god forbid, be his boss. Which is basically what this whole war on reproductive rights boils down to.

Protip: religious freedom does NOT mean you're free to impose your religion on everyone else, shitpastry.

Fucking thank you.

*more incoherent rage noises*

I seriously just cannot anymore.

For a minute or so I sat there wondering how the hell crushing an aspirin tablet would prevent pregnancy.

This is surely a sign that I need to go to bed.

Ha, I thought the exact same thing. I couldn't for the life of me understand how he expected aspirin to absorb through the knees, and what the fuck he was expecting it to do once it got there.

Clearly it's time for dinner/a nap.

people are "so preoccupied" by sex because there are so many rules and regulations about stuff like birth control that should be no brainers.

Also, love the tags on this post!
