Let’s jump right on in, shall we?
A bitch has noticed a rise in verbal malfunctions and home training fails from politicians surrounding the issue of children and people with developmental disabilities.
#1 – The “Punishment from God” argument…
I’ll be publishing a more detailed exploration of this one over at Feministing later today, but this bullshit can’t be called out too many times. When my older brother, who is autistic, was born many a preacher told my mother that she was being punished for her sins. Other assholes told her that, if she were a good Christian, God would bless her with a cure for my brother. And to top that off, many medical professionals told my mother that my brother wouldn’t be “like that” if she had hugged him more…talked to him more…loved him the way a “good mother” loves her children.
Let me be clear…I am calling bullshit on any person who latches onto biblical quotes to indict women as deserving punishment for using or having [insert reproductive health care service] and label children and adults with developmental disabilities as cursed or a curse or a punishment from above.
Yeah, that’s bullshit.
My brother isn’t a punishment and my mother didn’t do anything to "deserve" punishment or judgment from God or society or the medical community.
Shame on anyone and everyone who keeps than rancidity alive…
…and a bitch curses all who do that shit to vicious enlightenment.
That’s right, I curse them enlightened and ask the goddess to turn the light on in their vacant heads at a moment in time when they least expect it.
***raises hands to the sky and chants***
May these assholes be flooded with awareness that they are assholes and that they have perpetuated inaccurate hurtful bullshit…and may they spend the rest of their days knowing with a special kind of absolute knowledge that they are indeed rancid assholes of the lowest order and wretched to boot.
#2 – His name is Sen. Chuck Purgason and he is an Autism Insurance Bill obstructionist…
Last week, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that a certain Missouri State Senator (Chuck “Keep Your Change” Purgason…no, I’m not kidding) is blocking a vote on an Autism Insurance Bill.
And the chorus asked… “Why bitch? Is there something wrong with the Autism Insurance Bill?”
And a bitch replied… “No. Senator Purgason is holding it hostage so he can get a vote on a tax credit bill.”
Pause…allow that to marinate…continue.
Feel free to give him a call and tell him to cease!
Someone ought to be ashamed…
…but that’d be too much like right.
