Metaphorical Slut: “nooo! You don’t have to go! How long will you be gone?”
Me: “I don’t know, I’m not sure how long this will last but I’ll call you back when I’m do—-“
Metaphorical Slut: “too long! That’s how long!!”
Me: “I’ll call you back I promise!!!”
Metaphorical Slut: “Okaaay…”
So I called back.
Metaphorical Slut: “I’ll call you back after I finish this movie!”
I hate political rants as much as the next person. Probably more so, really, so I’ll have you know that this type of rant is extremely out of character for me so I’ll do my best to keep it brief.
I’m not saying that they’re not capable of being good people, or that I hate them because I’ve had a few friends who are republicans, but that doesnt mean they have any inkling as to what they’re talking about.
The bill that has been passed by the senate in Oklahoma states that abortion and plan B shall be made illegal in the state of Oklahoma. Illegal.
Now if you don’t mind me asking, who in the fucking hell made it the government’s business whether or not a woman should be stripped of her decision of whether or not it’s the best choice for her, or more importantly her potential child, to be brought into this world or not. Now I’m not even going to bring the generic “rape” scenario up because it’s over done and any true republican will find a way to drum up an argument against it. Instead, I’ll ask you this: what if there was a woman who already had 2 maybe 3 kids, she’s going into labor, and she’s told that the complications are so great, that she could not possibly survive giving birth to the child and even then the baby would have a slim chance at survival. Should she be forced to abandon 3 young lives and leave her husband to handle that AND a still birth?? Or say, again, due to massive complications, the baby will only survive for a maximum of 2 days and only live in excruciating pain every moment of that short, short life. Should we force the entire family to suffer??
Enough about abortion, there’s no swaying the pro-lifers, I know, but I feel as though you people are beginning to overstep your bounds. Plan B? Really? It even says on the box “not an abortion pill”. It’s a last minute pregnancy prevention system for shits who are too irresponsible, or too drunk, or simply too I’ll prepared for the given situation to slap on a condom before hand. Would you like to outlaw those too? If we play our cards right we could probably have the US looking like China within the next few years. I mean the people buying the medication are honestly doing you a favor; doing everyone a civil service. THEY’RE NOT READY FOR KIDS. They’re not ready. They’re not ready. They’re not ready. And if you honestly feel like forcing parenthood on them is going to make them ready, then I hope you’re busy preparing yourself for the shitstorm of the future. Didn’t you people ever read Freakonomics??
On top of all of that, the whole “we’re for the family” act Romney and Santorum are shitting out their asses is asinine and ridiculous! Women have been taking birth control for DECADES. It’s about time it’s made available for no extra charge! Do you think the women who couldn’t afford birth control before could afford feeding a new born baby and supplying it with everything it needs? Hell. Fucking. No. People, we’ve got MUCH bigger problems on our hands, and if you’re too dense to see it… God help us all.
