The Giantess Has Awoken

It is very gratifying to see US women politicians pushing back against insane new abortion and contraception laws with satirical proposals of their own. See here and here.

But now the giantess has awoken and has taken to social media to vent her ire mockery.

Some are calling it #ProjectTMI and, like our Canadian #TellAntiChoiceMPsEverything, women are schooling CONmen about the yuckier bits of being female and/or asking sarcastic questions of 'expert' male politicians.

US women are using the hashtag #mybodyyourchoice, which I think is brilliant, playing off the old feminist slogan while playing into what CONmen believe is their Right.

As with any of these organic thingies, it's going off in all directions. Some are using governors' and legislators' Facebook pages to ask ingenuous questions like: 'When I have a period, it's red, not blue like on tv ads. Is something wrong with me?' (Actually, I think that one came from a Canadian contributing to #TellAntiChoiceMPs.) Stuff like that.

An off-shoot I really like is Government Free VJJ with the tag line:
'If we knit you a uterus, will you stay out of ours?'

It has knitting and crocheting instructions for items like the Snatchel, Womb (fave word of TheoCons), Felt Cervix, Happy Uterus, and the Knitted Vulva, with glow-in-the-dark clitoris 'so she's always easy to find'.






The site includes suggestions on what to do with the resulting art. They're working on arranging hand-delivery to congressional offices.

These measures are desperately needed as we are discovering just how hilariously sadly ignorant the men who want to regulate our lady parts are about said bits.

Rachel Maddow makes hay with the fact that ReThugs actually don't know what's in their anti-abortion legislation.

The War on Women is raging now in the US. Here in Canada it is just warming up with Stephen Woodworth's private member's motion yet to receive its first hour of House debate in April.

But it is certainly ON.

Our evul goal here at DJ! is to have made the subject so toxic, so risible, so ridiculous to even consider in the 21st century, that only the hardest of hardcore Fetus Fetishists will have the gall to rise in the House and pretend to seriously discuss it.

To end on a hopeful/wishful note: Do we in Canada have a female pol with ovaries enough to make and hold a sign like State Senator McIntyre? Any nominations?

Omigawd.

The sign held by the feminist protester: hysterically hilarious FTW!

That's not just any protester, dBO. That's Oklahoma State Senator Judy Eason McIntyre.

Senator McIntyre ROCKS! I can't think of any current MP up to the task:-(

fern hill said...

How about a Senator? Nancy (Shut the Fuck Up) Ruth has been known to use the word.

After seeing that poster, I can't get Sen. Mike Duffy off my mind.

How about "If I wanted to be a babysitter, I'd fuck an #antichoiceMP,"

Beijing York said...

I went there too, Antonia. I had to immediately bleach my brain of that thought.

Not possible. The man hasn't seen his dick in years, probably reported it missing.

What they really need are some nice couches.

Ladies, I highly commend your good works to endeavour a RE-educating Initiative of our Neanderthal HarperCon's. Alas, based on experience with these Knucle-Draggers, I fear your uniquely valued talents may be (for purely non-rational reasons) under appreciated and under valued.
Of course, this is not our problem, it is their problem & their responsibility to correct / resolve their own problem.
Using a Tennis analogy, the ball will be in their Court and it would be nothing but totally Unreasonable for anyone to expect you to run around the net to return your own play.
Please note HarperCon’s can / will be exceedingly DUMB and never forget that you have the unconditional support of all Informed, Caring, Concerned Canadian Progressive Males.

Love the couch! Check the link.

Beijing York said...
