On "pro-life" biblical "justification" for denying abortion rights:

For all you sanctimonious hypocrites who are against abortion based on the bible. Answer me this. / Even pregnant women can be slaughtered: ( Hosea 13:16, Genesis 38:24 ) / A child less than one month old has no value ( Leviticus 27:6 ) / When conducting a census, ignore children under a month old ( Numbers 3:15-16 ) / The foetus can be killed too ( Hosea 9:16 ) / It is permissible to induce a miscarriage ( Numbers 5:21 ) / Live children can be disposed of by stoning, drowning, starvation, cannibalism, burning, stabbing and poison ( Matthew 18:6, Deuteronomy 21:21, Ezekiel 5:10, Genesis 19:24, Joshua 10:36, Deuteronomy 32:24 )

From "Sinfest - Notes from the Resistance" on the ubiquitous, often-invisible patriarchy:

(A young woman standing at her desk, then looking out the door, then going outside, noticing vertical semitransparent bars everywhere with glowing letters, HUSSY, TART, DADDY’S LITTLE GIRL, VAMP, TRAMP, LOLITA, PRINCESS, HO, DIVA, SKANK, GOLDDIGGER, PRUDE, DRAMA QUEEN, FUNBAGS, SHOW ME YOUR TITS, YOWZA, CHECK OUT THAT PIECE OF ASS, DIAMONDS ARE A GIRL’S BEST FRIEND, ARE YOU GOOD IN BED?, PORNIFY YOURSELF, OH GIRL YOU HAVE TO LET ME, STAND BY YOUR MAN, COOK CLEAN WASH, IT’S A MAN’S WORLD, T ’N A, GET ME A BEER, CONJUGAL DUTIES, BE SUBMISSIVE, DELICATE, LOYAL, HOW TO PLEASE YOUR MAN, MAKE-UP, XXX, BEAUTY TIPS, HOT OR NOT, HUBBA HUBBA, I LOVE YOU BABY, HONK HONK, etc. They continue throughout the entire comic. “MY GOD... it’s EVERYWHERE.” A girl in glasses on a tricycle says, “This is the PATRIARCHY. A SOCIAL-INTERACTIVE CONSTRUCT that BOMBARDS us with MISOGYNY. It’s a program of DOMINATION that permeates society at all levels... the workplace...” (DRESS CODE, MALE GAZE, GET ME SOME COFFEE, SEX JOKE, INNUENDO, etc.) “school...” (NYAH, SISSY, GIRLS ARE WEIRD, SUGAR AND SPICE, COOTIES, GROSS, BOYS DON’T CRY, etc.) “home...” (kid’s drawing of Dad, mom holding baby as “incubator”, and two other kids as “minions”) “It keeps people locked in RIGID GENDER ROLES...” (man and woman restroom-sign figures) “an untenable situation that leads to DISCONTENT, ALIENATION...” (figures split apart, walking away) “Most people can’t see the patriarchy. They’re too immersed. Until they are freed, they are agents of the system... colluders.” “Was I... AM I... a colluder?” “Everyone is. But you’re awake now. You can see.” (Patriarchy word-bars continue: FEMINAZI, DYKE, I KNOW WHAT YOU NEED, MAN HATER, HYSTERICAL, CAN’T KEEP A MAN, LOL JK, CAN’T YOU TAKE A JOKE, PRIGGISH, SPINSTER, CRAZY CAT LADY, BLAH BLAH BLAH, REVERSE SEXISM, WHAT ABOUT THE MEN?)

Also shared at "Ridicule Fascism", apparently from a Facebook group:

An instance of sexism, illogic, and the "man box"...

I'm not sexist. Sexism is wrong, and being wrong is for women

Does anyone here know Arabic or Chinese? Specifically, would the text on this button change (like in Hebrew, but not English or Spanish) depending on whether the feminist is a woman or a man?

Thanks!

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!!!
