    This Woman is Awesome

    She brings up so many great points. When was the last time a man's body was subject to legislation?

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Oh man--this almost makes me want to see Fox News' reaction to this. I can just see all the anti-abortion pundits they usually trot out just stammering and stumbling over their words and ranting about "big government."

    My body was legislated a couple of weeks ago. Not as pleasurable as I expected it to be, but I had had a few drinks and was open to new experiences.

    Glad to see that people are applying a bit of quid pro quo to these invasions of privacy.

    (And yeah, I know they're not actually meant to pass but to make a point)

    Only problem is that this never was about fairness. Obviously the laws dictating the lives of women will get passed, and those that dictate those of men won't. It's not about justice, it's about power. One can only hope this will make a few people think.

    Well yeah, the idea all along was to point out the double standard. They never expected the ones directed at men to pass, but to try and make a point to the (mostly men) voting for these about how it feels to have some politician legislate something that's very personal.
