Remember last week, when I started the #Attack On Bloodcatchers tag in flailing half-angry, half-laughing mockery of a post about Anime Expo’s new bag check policy suggesting uterus-possessing-people should hide their tampons as to not embarrass and disturb everyone involved in the bag inspection process? I never thought this would become a tag I would be using in earnest or ever again.
Remember the Texas state senate and their current attempts to pass an absurd body-policing abortion bill? #SB1 #HB2
The Texas legislator is currently forcing anyone entering the gallery with tampons or pads in their purse to throw them out as they might pose a danger. No. I’m not sure how a wad of cotton is a danger to these people. I guess vaginas and women’s bodies in general are just that fucking terrifying.
That’s right, the Texas state government is denying menstruating women entry to the Senate gallery unless they throw out their supplies.
Don’t worry though…
However, people with concealed handgun licenses are allowed to bypass long lines to enter the Gallery through the expedited CHL entrance, and per DPS, if a person has a CHL, they can take their gun into the gallery.
Guns yes, tampons no.
What the actual fuck is going on?
I love the sass in the article:
His presumption about why there are signs in a zoo prohibiting people from feeding animals isn’t even correct. Animals in zoos have specialized diets, and if zoo spectators were allowed to feed them, it could cause them serious harm and even death if they were given the wrong kinds of food.
Furthermore, since the animals are in a zoo, held captive in a space in plain view of humans that is roughly 1/1000th the size of their natural habitats, we’re not quite sure how they could “keep coming back”.
According to Stephen Colbert tonight, this is the link for a new GOP survey aimed at ‘younger voters.’ Oh sweet lord, the questions on this thing are hilarious and painful and EVERYONE ON TUMBLR NEEDS TO FILL THIS OUT RIGHT NOW
“Would you vote for a Republican candidate if they were African America?”
how much do you wanna bet they’ll discount answers from people like me thinking, “heathens!” (or, “democrats!”) and then nothing will come from this?
something tells me they’re probably going to chuck out my answers
Oh my God, I am CRYING.
yes yes I write letters ALL THE TIME it is in fact my primary form of communication
of course I don’t care about someone’s politics! their winning personality is enough for me because I am an uninformed ignoramus of a voter
but bigotry and ignorance are LOADS of fun!
because AGE is what matters when I vote, not their political beliefs or actions!
…um, guys, i don’t think they know what “in the closet” actually means. don’t tell anyone.
This is fucking COMEDY GOLD, OK? COMEDY. GOLD.
