    make people aware of the woman-hating/controlling/demeaning stances of Republicans?

    That is, Republicans created anti-woman themes that still accepted today in public discourse, primarily because they never let up on their talking points.  I can't see breaking through ennui of voters without making the absurdity and unfairness clear whenever possible.

    •  No, that's not what I'm saying (6+ / 0-)

      I'm saying the idea that they don't know facts about contraception is wrong.  They know the facts.  They choose to distort them.  I know plenty of people who just think that these men (and women) are ignorant of certain things like 98% of women have used contraception at one point in their life, and so we need to "teach" them.

      What I'm saying is that anti-contraception should be openly ridiculed as regressive, unscientific, and oppressive to women and men.

        An increasingly shrill number call some forms of contraception another form of abortion.

        Many don't seem to realize that there are health benefits for women taking birth control pills which go beyond actual prevention of pregnancies.

        Many are still reportedly ignorant about birth control methods and their relationship to preventing transmission of HIV or STDs.

        I agree with your final statement, though.
