  •  This is in real time to real people (4.00)
    Can you please explain to me how this is hyperbole?  This is proposed law in Missouri that has the backing of the governor.

    Heaven forbid we should appear frantic when our rights are being stripped before our very eyes.  Heaven forbid women should appear emotional or unbalanced because we can't get our friggin' prescriptions filled.

    The threat is very real and it's against women's reproductive rights as well as our abortion rights.  Let's see ... how long did it take this party's leadership and many of its members to wake up and realize Roe v. Wade had been gutted so severely only 13% of the counties in this country have access to abortions?  How long did it take the country to wake up and see it as a real threat?  How long was the rightwing allowed to stealthy take away women's rights left and right?

    Oh yeah, that would be thirty friggin' years.  It's disingenous at best not to open your eyes and see these healthens will not stop until women have no rights left when it comes to what we do with our bodies.

    Hyperbole my ass, this is happening in real time to real people.  Hyperbole isn't what will cause the next women's revolution, the laws and acts of white men who think they own us will.

    •  excellent response Cali n/t (none)
      •  As was yours mickey (none)
        As was your response mickey.  We're a good team, you say what needs to be said in a way it can be heard and I, well I seem to think the word fuck gets the message across.  

        Between the two of us we've covered the bases.

    •  i have some {{shudder}} Jesus freak friends (none)
      from back home, and have talked to them about this.  they are very involved politically against abortion, and on the right in general.  

      they are nonplussed over why left-ish ppl like me are worried about their condoms and birth control pills.  they care about abortion, but themselves use birth control to prevent unwanted conception, and their church supports that.  they oppose morning after pills, but other than that, they say go for it, you know, with your husband or wife at least.  it is catholics who oppose all contraception from a doctrinal standpoint.  most lay (snicker, "lay")catholics use contraceptives, however.

      this just happens to be one are where I have been able to have a conversation with a winger over our differences.  there are still differences between me and them over abortion and sexual freedom.  speaking of, yes, they do want to see a cultural rollback of the sexual revolution, but not a legal one in terms of restrictions on private sexual behavior.  

      while I disagree with them on those points, i found it interesting that as for one of the areas I thought they wanted to control, namely preventative contraceptives, i was wrong, at least in regard to my southern baptist friends from back home.
