Yo! Penis People!

Read this and try to plumb the depth of Theo-Neo-Con loathing and disgust for women.
Today the GOP-led House of Representatives, with the blessings and encouragement of the United States Council of Catholic Bishops and extremist religious groups such as the Family Research Council, passed a bill in a vote of 251 to 172 that would, among other things, allow doctors and hospitals to "exercise their conscience" by letting pregnant women facing emergency medical conditions die.

Yes. Die.

This is what the Republicans called the "Protect Life Act." And no, I am not kidding.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called it what it is... "a savage assault on women's health."

Here's the representative of that hate.

Abortion is always an issue.

Amerikans (by which I mean Rethuglicans) are crude, club-wielding savages. This Bill is the best evidence yet. Republic of Gilead, full steam ahead.

Fucking wow! Exercising their conscience. What conscience? On second thought, yeah, their CONscience.

Why *Penis People*?

Why not *People of the Penis*?

It could be a Jean Auel novel. You wouldn't have to change the themes, even.

Plenty of neo-con women about, not that I'm being defensive or anything.

"Penis people" may be a fallacy.

@Mandos: :D

@Dr. Dawg: True. But even neo-con women probably have some visceral experience of misogyny. When I read that story (and all the stories leading up to the vote), I just got a bone-deep shiver. I am deeply deeply hated for no other reason than I have a vagina/uterus.

That neo-con women would continue to perpetrate that hate is a psychological mystery. But then neo-con women *embody* psychological mystery.
