Ruth - Don't start getting uppity and thinking you can claim personhood without a y chromosome.

And here I thought as recently as last year that Marie Shear's famous quote, "Feminism is the radical notion that women are people", was mostly a description of the progress we've made as a civilized society!

Oklahoma and Wyoming Republicans agree women aren't people, disagree on just what they are


Oklahoma and Wyoming Republicans agree women aren't people, disagre...

Republicans in Wyoming and Oklahoma are starting to drop the pretense that they consider women to be human beings. In Wyoming, the state Senate is considering three bills that would restrict women’s abortion rights. Two of them are being considered by the agriculture committee.

[Senate President Eli Bebout] ... Allegations that women are being equated to cattle are ridiculous, the Riverton Republican said.

Dude, you’re the one who handed the job of limiting what medical care women can get to the agriculture committee. In Oklahoma, Rep. Justin Henry isn’t trying to be even that subtle as he pushes a bill requiring women to get male approval for abortion. He’s ranking women somewhere below cattle:... [highlight mine]

Henry says women are merely hosts, they only feel as if it's their body. You know, sort of like we're fleshy incubators without a central nervous system.

In the wake of Elizabeth Warren being censored in the Senate by Mitch McConnell while reading a letter Which Had Been Previously Introduced Into The Senate Record, some women of the Congressional Black Caucus decided to join together to repeat those words for those with ears to hear.

To them, and to all women who stand up to this brand of blatant chauvinism, I say: BRAVISSIMA BRAVA!!!

Joseph - I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one with a twelve-year-old in the back of my head. (H/T to The Who - But he only comes out when I drinks my gin.)

Comment by Joseph P on December 14, 2016 at 4:12pm

Yeah, I've heard several Christian voices say something to that effect about gay embryos ... or at least ask each other the question.  I'm pretty sure that most if not all of them were being what they consider to be funny, though.

After all, the narrative of fundamentalists tends to be that no one is born gay but that it's the result of sin or perhaps demon possession.  I've seen Pentecostals play at casting out gay demons, and the person pretend to be straight after that.  I suspect that the demon can more easily find its way back in, though, since it knows the window in the back that doesn't latch properly.

... err, which I didn't mean as an anal sex joke when I typed that, but I'll just leave it.  (yes, I'm aware that lots of gay guys aren't into anal sex, but the 12 year-old in the back of my head latched onto it anyway)

They have support for their view from the Bible, after all:

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Romans 1:26-27

Supposedly there are polls showing conservative Christian "pro-lifers" people who oppose abortion, but who'd be in favor of aborting an embryo if it were certain to become a person who was gay.

(But being gay "is a choice"!! Yet another layer of doublethink.)

(Anyone have a reference or a rebuttal? My google-fu isn't up to the task, getting swamped in articles about attitudes about abortion and gay marriage.)

Comment by Joseph P on December 14, 2016 at 7:30am

I'm almost surprised that they don't allow abortion for half of pregnancies, after the point at which you can determine the sex of the fetus.

Comment by Grinning Cat on December 13, 2016 at 11:57pm

[early embryo] Howdy folks! I have flippers, a tail and gill slits, but I'm a PERSON! [a woman] You, however, have a vagina, so you're NOT! Glad to clear that up for ya! hisvorpalsword.comfrom the comments at "OKLAHOMA: Legislature Approves Bill Ordering Many Businesses To Place Anti-Abortion Signs In Restrooms" (Joe.My.God.)

The new Oklahoma law requires businesses regulated by the Department of Health to post, at their own expense, signs in their restrooms stating, "There are many public and private agencies willing and able to help you carry your child to term and assist you and your child after your child is born, whether you choose to keep your child or to place him or her for adoption. The State of Oklahoma strongly urges you to contact them if you are pregnant."
