Happy Friday, y’all!
Like many, I’ve struggled to keep my spirits up when there have been waves upon waves upon waves of oppressive attacks from those bent on keeping their boots on our necks and their laws in our lady bits.
The ongoing fight over birth control has been particularly draining. I think that’s because I know this battle has been fought and won…but here we are again, defending access to something that the majority of people use and that has been accepted as health care for decades.
I’ve got to be honest – hearing Americans say that birth control isn’t health care makes me fear for the intellectual capacity of the masses almost as much as hearing Americans claim that Jesus had a pet dinosaur.
I woke up this morning pondering this shit…only to arrive at the conclusion that these battles are so draining because it takes a lot of energy to process illogical shit when you start out assuming there’s some logic behind it.
Think about it – how often have you heard some conservative statement and tried to figure out how the asshole saying it even got there only to find your Afro hurting by the time you come to the conclusion that he or she must have pulled that bizarreness out of their ass?
Well, I’m over it.
I mean it.
The next time one of these wacky fools tells me that birth control isn’t health care…or that emergency contraception is the same as the abortion pill…that environmental activism is anti-American…that they’ve found the cure for Autism…corporations are people…or that they oppose measures to protect LGBT students from bullying out of love…
I’m going to respond with something they’ll understand…
“Yep, just like Jesus had a pet dinosaur and Obama sent billions of your money to bailout those silly unicorn farms!”
…and then smile hard while showing a lot of teeth.
Wow, I feel fantabulous just writing it.
I’ll keep y’all posted.
