You would think that even if conservative lawmakers continue to deny our humanity and right to our bodies, they would at the very least understand that people being in control of their reproductive decisions is great for the economy.
You’re bad at this, Rush Limbaugh. You don’t even understand how babies are made, let alone how people can have sex without making a baby, and you would like the government to take over decision-making on these issues on your say-so. And you don’t get it. You biologically don’t get it. You just don’t understand it. You were absent that day. - Rachel Maddow
Oh Rachel, I love you for this segment.
This segment was flawless.
The only thing I wish she’d added at the end was the the reason he may be confused is because he thinks birth control pills have to be taken every time you have sex just like the prescription Viagra pills the he continues to be caught with.
The thing about this whole saga is it’s exposed a whole new facet to the argument- these grown ass men talking about contraceptives literally do not know the first damn thing about them. And not just in the how they work on a biological level, their practical uses, alternate benefits etc. THEY LITERALLY DON’T KNOW WHAT A CONTRACEPTIVE PILL IS. I’ll be honest, I never even considered that in 2012, in the most privileged country in the world there could be hyperprivileged men who didn’t know the superbasics of the contraceptive pill, so I’ve never thought to address that, but FUCK ME, apparently our arguments about complex wombproblems and all that really were lost on them, not only because they’re nasty bigots, but because they literally do not have the mutual information base upon which the relative arguments are formed.
I DON’T BELIEVE THAT I SHOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR SOMEONE ELSE’S BIRTH CONTROL but I BELIEVE THAT MY TAXPAYER DOLLARS SHOULD BE USED TO PAY FOR INVASIVE VAGINAL PROCEDURES WHEN SOMEONE IS PREGNANT and I HAVE NO PROBLEM PAYING FOR MEDICATIONS FOR ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION DISORDER
Pam’s House Blend reports that the Osbon ErecAid ED Pump is fully covered by Medicare and private insurance.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but erectile dysfunction does not affect directly affect physical health (only psychological health). However, birth control directly affects physical health even when we ignore pregnancy (endometriosis, etc.).
Sometimes, I wonder why I’m surrounded by village idiots.
