I think this speaks for itself. Accepting a person doesn’t mean you get to put limits on their freedom. You can’t be an ally and want us to stop talking, or labeling, or demanding to be heard.
Acceptance has no exceptions. Period.
Whatever you think of the Democrats’ political framing, the “war on women” has never been primarily about individual politicians’ sleazy behavior towards women. Men in power behaving badly is a relatively bipartisan phenomenon. Democrats’ attacks on Republicans for waging a “war on women” is about the Republican Party’s policy agenda, one that includes weakening workplace protections against discrimination, forcing women to carry unwanted pregnancies to term, carving out religious exceptions to insurance regulations that compel companies to cover reproductive health, and opposing legislative measures to combat sexual assault. Paul’s resurfacing of Clinton’s affair from more than 10 years ago to prove Democrats are being hypocritical misunderstands or ignores this policy critique in a futile attempt to reframe the issue as a matter of personal virtue.
Matthew and I tried out an internal condom for the first time!
Squeee. This makes me so excited. Check it out ya’ll and if you’re in the Chicago area check out the Chicago Female Condom Campaign webpage. *chants* “FC2 FC2 FC2 FC2* They offer trainings in how to use the condom so that first time isn’t so much of challenge! (what what?)
As a Social Worker in sexual health I love the internal condom because it puts HIV prevention in the hands of receiving partners rather than just penetrative partners THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT. But remember- never double bag ;-) One condom at a time folks- or neither one will work when they both break.
One thing I did want to say about Erica’s comic is that the esthetic about the condom resting on the outside of your ladybits is that is added protection. Condoms only protect what they can cover, but STIs can be transmitted more than just internally. The FC2 allows you to cover those luscious lips so they stay that way. Luscious and not infected. Something to think about. ;-)

Winter just keeps on coming. If you’ve given up on going outside unless you have to, as I have,…
Here you go with the feminist shit again.
You might not care now, but when you want to get some and cannot you’d care.
And sure, it should not be free or whatever, but that doesn’t mean ban.
What is this: an eye for an eye? That won’t resolve in any way women’s problems
A Fox News panel discussing the ‘war on women’ features four men and no women.
This, in one image, is the essence of the problem with the war on women. Four straight white guys “debating” how women aren’t oppressed. Fox News isn’t even trying.
BREAKING: Anti-choice members of the U.S. House just passed H.R.7, which will ban abortion coverage for millions of women.
When 118 countries are ahead of us on this, you know we’ve got work to do. And it’s not just moms — we dads could use some paid time off with the new arrival as well.
For a country that pretends to care about kids, we sure do suck at it.
