    It is real, actual people that you are talking about.
    I have never been so disgusted by public discourse in my life. I've always had an aversion to considering personal things like choice and marriage equality as legitimate political "issues" to begin with. Whether or not I want to have a child, the circumstances of my pregnancy, or who I or my friends fall in love with and want to marry should never, ever be up for debate on the public stage.

    These fucking assholes, so flippantly discussing things they know nothing about, serious, painful things, as thought they are nothing more than a debate on economic policy makes me so angry and sick to my stomach.

    I have no more tolerance for this bullshit. No. More.

    •  Exactly. I keep seeing 'newest GOP gaffe', (6+ / 0-)

      but FOX and the repubs act like someone just accidentally said the wrong word and, while they act outraged, they kind of just laugh it off too.

      It's not a joke. It's not a 'gaffe'. These people have terrible ideas and thoughts, and they are the ones that are trying to make policy and laws. Getting caught saying these things is one thing, but knowing that they have these thoughts AT ALL is so much worse.

        any time a conservative wants to get into it with me about women's health issues, I'm going to treat them to a very detailed discussion of my vaginal health.  Maybe that will shock them into realizing they are talking about something they know absolutely nothing about.
