Why are we so ashamed of periods? … Women’s bodies are incredibly sexualized in our media and in our every day experiences. So much so that even mentioning menstruation sends a lot of people into kindergarten levels of EW. And why? Because for a moment, you have broken the spell. And suddenly, you are no longer a magical mannequin unicorn fairy existing purely for the sexual fantasy of other people. Suddenly, you’re a human being! (X)

Former Texas Rep. Wayne Christian, who tried to get LGBT/women’s centers banned from public schools, is touting his strong record against abortion …. while running for railroad commissioner.

Have you ever stood in a line for WIC? PREGNANT WOMEN WILL WAIT AS LONG AS SIX HOURS with noisy toddlers to get their coupons for free proteins like cheese and dry beans. DRY BEANS. They can’t otherwise afford this necessary food to meet their monthly protein requirement to have healthy babies.

Do people honestly have any idea what sort of a problem food is in this country and how many children don’t have regular access to healthy meals? Do they know how many pregnant women don’t get the proper nutrition?

Fuck you Republicans.

I’m not even tagging these posts “politics.” This is basic humanity; it’s not me being a liberal—it’s me being a decent human and these congresstwits being INHUMAN.

When I tried to explain this to my friend in Canada she assumed I was making this up, because no one could be that cartoonishly evil.

Sign the petition: tell conservatives in the House of Representatives that it’s wrong to hold America’s children hostage to their reckless and selfish demands.

Personhood Ohio is low on cash, so what do they do to raise money to save the fetuses? Sell assault rifles, high-capacity magazines, and “powerful ammo,” of course! 

“I’m selling some of my favorite things—some powerful rifles and ammo,” Personhood Ohio Director Patrick Johnston wrote in a recent fundraising email. “I’m a firm believer that the Second Amendment protects the future of freedom, but not as much as justice for the preborn. See, if God’s against you, your guns won’t help you at all. The shedding of innocent blood will bring God’s wrath on the land – and then you can wave freedom goodbye. So protecting Ohio’s children is more important than securing your right to keep and bear arms.”

“I cannot convince my Republican colleagues that one of the best ways to eliminate abortions is to ensure access to contraception,” lamented Rep. Cox in a letter to The Oklahoman. “A recent attempt by my fellow lawmakers to prevent Medicaid dollars from covering the ‘morning after’ pill is a case in point. Denying access to this important contraceptive is a sure way to increase legal and back-alley abortions. Moreover, such a law would discriminate against low-income women who depend on Medicaid for their health care.”
Yes, he’s a Republican.
