Confession: I don’t watch TV. Or Netflix. My media input is pretty much YouTube and music videos and video games.
But I’m aware enough to know when shit is going down on the TV. And that’s when I run to Twitter. It is so much more enjoyable to me to check our livetweets of other people watching shows, like watching Let’s Play and stuffs. I howled when Nicki called out Miley, and I’ve been keeping up with the Republican debates.
It’s been a clown car of fuckery, but we all knew that. But oh boy oh boy did this quote hit me in the fucking fucks:
What drugs were you on when you watched that video? Did someone switch the video out for A Serbian Film? What the entire fuck?
Polifact has been busy as fuck with each of these debates, calling out the outright lies frothing out of the mouths of these clowns, and they tackled this one and called it Mostly False. Okay, fine (EDIT: Mostly False isn’t actually okay with me). I can take my time ripping this ignorant fuckstick to shreds.
Cathy, can I call you Cathy? Too bad, I’m calling you Cathy, first I have a song for you:
Seriously, Oh My God, why the fuck you lyin’? Are you even aware of how abortions are even DONE? Probably not, because for your types, it’s just easier to repeat bullshit lies and arguments from ‘EW’ and people will just nod their heads and agree with you. Anyone watching the videos, the unedited, unspun videos, would call you for your crap.
Which scares the fuck out of me. With the House actually pass their bullshit defund Planned Parenthood bill, it’s obvious that this bullshit lying tactic is actually working. I don’t escort at a PP, so I don’t hear the worst of the bullshit, but it’s there.
“Planned Parenthood sells baby parts!!!”
And my eyes rolls until I get a headache. I hate this. I hate this so much. I know it’s gonna get veto’d so hard, and it might be the cause for yet another Republican temper tantrum i.e. government shutdown. Because they hate a health clinic.
A health clinic that doesn’t take federal money for the abortions it does.
I know at this point I’m supposed to mention that only 3% of what PP does is abortion, but frankly, I’m utterly fuckless. I don’t care if Planned Parenthood did 50%, 75%, 100% abortions. I don’t care if they provided doulas, massage therapists, soft music, a fluffy robe, general anesthesia and gave patients a puppy afterwards. Abortions aren’t a terrible awful thing. It’s a medical procedure. It’s gross, but so’s watching open heart surgery. It can be uncomfortable, even painful (I’m remembering the “let’s get past the cervix” part of my old IUD insertion and having that for a 5-15 minute procedure makes me want to scream. Knock me the fuck out, please), but so’s dental surgery.
That’s it. That’s all. Strip the emotional guilt trippy “it’s a baaaabeee” bullshit, and all you got is a basic, safe, medical procedure. The vast majority of people who have it will move on with their lives without regrets, and we’ve got studies to prove that. Defunding Planned Parenthood won’t end abortions. Making abortions illegal will not end abortions.
Making abortions sound like some horror movie bullshit won’t end them either. And you should know better, Cathy.
You wanna end PP? Offer to be its CEO.
