These men are ruining it for everyone.

So, from what I can glean, here are the things about which conservative male lawmakers have now declared they’re more attuned to than women: pregnancy, menstruation, PCOS, birth control (it costs $9 at Wal-Mart! All pills!), how totally not a big deal it is to have a transvaginal ultrasound, whether or not women know what pregnancy is (better show ‘em the ultrasound!), science, medicine, obstetrics, how easy it is to carry a pregnancy and then “just” give the child up for adoption, and now, penis-in-vagina rape and, by extension, sexual consent.

I feel like pretty soon, when I meet a new guy, I’m going to have to ask him to declare his political affiliation, then hand him a questionaire about his thoughts on women’s issues and if he even hints at thinking women can’t make their own decisions, even about what to have for dinner, I will have to walk away.

‎Why extremists always focus on women remains a mystery to me. But they all seem to. It doesn’t matter what country they’re in or what religion they claim, they all want to control women. They want to control how we dress, they want to control how we act, they even want to control the decisions we make about our own health and our own bodies. Yes, it is hard to believe, but even here at home we have to stand up for women’s rights and reject efforts to marginalize any one of us because America needs to set an example for the entire world.
