Yesterday, my vagina and I had a conversation. First thing she said to me was, “We can NEVER go to New Hampshire, or Kansas, plus both Dakotas, Texas.” My response was terribly sympathetic. I knew what she was talking about. These states HATE women, or at least their GOP Governors/Legislators.
You know my vagina has been a part of my body since, well, I was conceived. Aren’t you GOP Christian zealots all about life beginning at conception? Well my vagina was there when I was conceived. In fact, if any of you have daughters, YOU decided that they would have a vagina. YOU did. And that sexy feeling you feel at night, with your wife, or mistress, the point of coitus that turns boys into men? That’s a vagina you’re putting your penis in. Without that vagina, you would NEVER know what that feeling is like. So is it fair that I am not supposed to give my vagina the BEST CARE I can? What the hell are you old, white, GOP ‘men’ doing? I can’t go to Planned Parenthood and receive proper health care for my vagina, the one body part I own that you CAN’T live without? Seriously.
Martha Plimpton tweeted yesterday that a woman’s vagina is just as much a part of a woman’s body as her heart, lung, kidneys, brain, and needs proper care in order to function. That inspired this blog.
One question I do have for these misogynistic GOP politicians, what the hell are women suppose to do now that you want to take away Planned Parenthood? Do you know how moronic you sound wanting to de-fund a place women go to receive birth control, THE very thing that prevents those abortions you’re so against. The hypocrisy is breathtaking. And I have yet to hear any of these politicians answer THAT question. What do you think birth control does? You want to take that away from women? Really? And what about screening for diseases that only a vagina can have? You don’t want women to be able to have that? The vagina isn’t only for STD’s, cancer can show up in there. Did you know that? I promise you, the vagina is NOT only for your pleasure. But we women know this already, that’s why we need and want to take care of it. And you GOP ‘men’ are taking away that right. How disgusting.
WOMEN: Please join me in calling, spamming, these misogynistic GOP ‘men’ and letting them know this is NOT acceptable. Our vaginas deserve the best and proper care available. And these ‘men’ are taking that away from us. All of us. This is 2011. Not 1911.
The Republicans have waged a war on women, and women’s health care. This CAN’T be tolerated. This is unacceptable, and we need as many women to stand up for other women and women’s right to choose. MEN are making these decisions, people. MEN who will never know the pain of an unwanted pregnancy. We could throw every one of these ‘men’ in prison and they STILL won’t know the feeling of having to carry their rapist’s fetus.
Councilor Raymond J. Wieczorek: He was a HUGE part in defunding Planned Parenthood in New Hampshire.
Governor Sam Brownback: He signed bills into law in Kansas that makes it impossible for a woman to have an abortion.
Governor Rick Perry: This guy also wants to make it impossible for a woman to have access to health care in Texas
I find the most ironic part of this is how all we’re hearing is less givernment, we need less government. Yet THIS assault on women from the GOP seems to be THE MOST INTRUSIVE form of Government I have ever seen. Don’t you agree?
