There's a predictable but bizarre reaction from Republicans with penises (and a few without) to the backlash against the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision: only sluts and whores use birth control. The obvious conclusion is that these guys aren't getting much in the way of action if they don't think women should get to have sex for fun. Or they're only getting it when they pay for it.
TPM has the male pundit reaction.
"Pregnancy is something that you have to do to cause. ... Yet we treat it as a great imposition that women need to be protected from. It's a sickness, it's a disease, it's whatever, and there's gotta be a pill for it," [Rush Limbaugh] said on his show. "Yet they wouldn't have the problem if they didn't do a certain thing. It's that simple." […]Then there are the tweets.
Sean Hannity wondered about the liberal "obsession with birth control" on his radio show Monday, and basically told women to just go get condoms.
"I was in the drugstore the other day, and guess what? There’s a whole section of birth control. Go buy it!" he said. "You can get a condom in a New York bar for free. As a matter of fact, you can take a handful."
Jill Filipovic highlights the reaction of the conservative general public. The conservative general public sucks.
That last one is particularly good, with that avatar. No, no whoredom there. But I'm sure @AllAmericanGirl (along with all her Republican friends who are so thrilled with this ruling) has only ever had procreative sex. How that explains Limbaugh, with his gazillion marriages, unfortunately public Viagra problem, and no children (thank whatever deity you like for the fact that he hasn't bred!) isn't clear. But don't spend too much time thinking that one out, because that's just not a place anyone should have to go.
Anyway, it might be about time for America's Lysistrata moment. If it ended the Peloponnesian War maybe it can end the War on Women.
