—This is brogressivism in a nutshell. (It’s also mind-bogglingly stupid. The charge of tribalism makes me want to headdesk forever and ever.) So many issues to be concerned about…just not issues that affect women’s lives.
I love the idea that there are good (worthy) issues and bad issues. Wouldn’t a normal person agree that there are many issues worth addressing, but that we may–not being a monolith–weight them differently?
—Rick Perry has something to say about a Texas abortion law being struck down; it is slightly less intelligible than “Nanny-nanny boo-boo.”
“Today’s decision will not stop our ongoing efforts to protect life and ensure the women of our state aren’t exposed to any more of the abortion-mill horror stories that have made headlines recently,”
I guess I’m curious as to why women need to be protected from stories. I know, I know, women have super-sensitive femi-ears and stories like this can make our ears cry glittery, pink ear-tears…but anyway…did the Governor mean to say that he was going to protect women from abortion mills? Because my femi-ears are sensitive to anti-choice arguments that infantilize women. And my pretty, pretty, Bedazzled brain is easily confused by reasoning that treats women as too stupid to understand what abortion is but still feel that women can be trusted with a 9-month pregnancy, the birthing process and possibly raising a child for 18+ years. Am I crazy or does that not make a lick of sense?
