Q. I just had an abortion and it has been more than 24 hours, and I have not yet started bleeding. What does that mean ? Continue reading
It’s been an abortion-palooza across America! Let’s take this one shitty state at a time. (Trigger warning for discussions of abortion, rape, and incest.) Continue reading
I’m not gonna sugarcoat it, this week’s news is just awful. Politicians are awful, victim-blamers are awful, the internet is awful. Let’s get ready to punch this week in the face, yes? (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Continue reading
There’s never an end in sight when it comes to finding misogyny in the news. People are literally getting away with murder, telling high school girls that they ought to focus more on being moms than getting jobs, making it harder for women to get healthcare, and just generally being terrible human beings. (As usual, trigger warnings apply for just about everything). Continue reading
I wish I were here to bring you good news, but that’s in short supply this week. What I’ve got instead is abortion bullshit, rape apology/victim-blaming, more things that feminism has ruined, a Nice Guyâ„¢, and the woman who wants to feed him to sharks. Actually, that last story kinda made my day. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Continue reading
Sisters and brothers, cats and kittens, my loves, my loves, my loves. Welcome back! Oh a bonjour here, a bienvenue there. Hola and Hello Dolly. Rejoice: we are back for the news. Continue reading
Q. Logically, I know that if I can get a pimple/blemish on any other part of my body, then it stands to reason that my girl bits could also get what seems like a pimple. That doesn’t stop a small voice in me from freaking out, like, “OMG, I have some sort of horrible disease that I don’t know about,” even if every annual exam comes up A-OK. Put my mind at ease? Continue reading
I have a big mouth. I have a loud mouth. This tends to get me into trouble on occasion. Continue reading
It’s Monday! Already? I know. I KNOW. May the Sixth be with you.
Cool, right? Here’s reason #(insert unrealistically large, made-up number here) why Planned Parenthood is awesome. They are suing the state of Texas. Yes, one of my favorite organizations is suing my home state. Things are about to get dirty here, and I’ve got a front row seat. Time to get out the popcorn and the picket signs! Continue reading
â€œThey’re killing babies there.â€ Continue reading
Welcome back, poodles, for another roundabout recap of all the news that proves that this dear country is headed to hell in an embroidered handbasket. Will we make it through the week with a forced smile on our faces, or will we grimly gather round the old television and lament the very forces that make all things seem ever so desperate and awful sometimes? Either way, there will be gin – cotton candy for those who abstain from the devil’s drink. So gather up your wills and your wiles, let’s meet this week’s news head on with a brave face and a tight grip on sanity. Continue reading
I don’t like abortion.
I have never been in a position where I needed one, and am coming at it from a point of privilege, but that doesn’t change the fact that I don’t like it. I would really prefer to see abortion rates drop significantly. Continue reading
It’s that time of year, y’all! No, not jelly beans and Cadbury eggs everywhere time. Well, that too. No, it’s “40 Days for Life” time! Or, as I like to call it, “40 Days to End Women’s Bodily Autonomy and Exercise Religiously-Based Manipulation Based on Medical Falsehoods” time! Isn’t that just charming? Continue reading
It takes a special kind of skill to completely alienate two separate and fundamentally opposed groups of people. Last week, however, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation managed to accomplish exactly that. They lost the support of people who believe in affordable, accessible heath care for lower-income and uninsured women when they cut funding to Planned Parenthood, and they lost the support of the anti-choice faction when they (sort of) reversed that decision.
