I just signed the following petition addressed to: Arizona Sentate, Arizona State Legislature, Debbie Lesko.

Stop the Arizona birth control Bill

If this bill passes the senate then women of Arizona would be forced to provide documentation that birth control is for medical purposes only. The "company" would not be required to cover birth control if it was for prevention of conception. Additionally this bill would give companies the right to fire women if they discovered that she was using a contraceptive to prevent pregnancy

Cluegirl note: Please don’t roll your eyes and click past because you’re tired of this nonsense. We’re all tired of this nonsense. We’re exhausted with the Tiny White Men That Other White Men Seem To Insist Need To Live In Our Ladyparts, and we’re tired of being treated like cattle and chattel just because we’re capable of conceiving life, but WE CANNOT IGNORE SHIT LIKE THIS! We must speak up, in our thousands, and we must speak up EVERY DAMN TIME! We must roar and shake the bars because every time even one of these appalling little incremental atrocities passes without uproar, then the Tiny White Men use it as a platform from which to to launch another, only slightly more atrocious attack.

Don’t get tired, get mad. Talk about it. Yell about it. SCREAM about it. Deny nay-sayers sex over it. Do. Not. Be. Worn. Down. Because once the chains go on, it takes a lot of blood to get them off again.

This signal needs to be louder than all the ‘stop internet limitations’ signals. This Conservative Agenda includes the enslavement of better than half the human race. It really, really is more important.

Act like it.

Common Sense Disclaimer: If you are not me, then these opinions, relative to the experience of being me, are not yours. Also, if your gender makes it impossible for you to become pregnant and carry a foetus inside your body without resorting to science and surgery, then you must expect that your opinions on a woman’s right to choose when and whether to reproduce will NEVER carry as much weight with me as an actual breeder’s opinions. For you, it’s abstract. For us, it’s real. Ergo, I expect any debate on this subject to be handled with maturity, courtesy, and restraint. No poo throwing, no tubthumping, no trolling, and no shaming. I will ban commenters who are deliberately provocative, rude, and cruel over this. Don’t be douches.

You have been warned.

  2. ffutures says:

    Signed – not sure how much attention they’ll pay to a brit, but never mind.

  3. coth says:

    According to this link the bill failed in the Arizona Senate on Wednesday, although it’s part of a wider conversation about religious freedom and funding healthcare and something like it may resurface later.

    All the articles on Google state that this bill was voted down 2 or 3 weeks ago, so this may be out of date.

    Funny how someone asking for my support says this:

    ‘Also, if your gender makes it impossible for you to become pregnant and carry a foetus inside your body without resorting to science and surgery, then you must expect that your opinions on a woman’s right to choose when and whether to reproduce will NEVER carry as much weight with me as an actual breeder’s opinions. For you, it’s abstract. For us, it’s real.’

    And then asks for restraint- this is restraint in comment, is it?

    Has she any idea how much this hurts a woman who cannot reproduce? Does she think it’s really any less real? How much the lack makes me ache?

    Sigh! :o(
