Birth Control 101 by *TomPreston
It sickens me when political pundits ignore medial complexities and progress by turning everything into a black and white “moral” issue. I had the option of using Rush Limaugh (who made the “slut” remark), Foster Friess (who suggested women put aspirin between their legs as a contraceptive), or Rick Santorum (who believes birth control is sinful) as the “heavy” in this comic. Then I remembered Santorum is currently in a position to potentially run my country, and the decision was a no brainer.

I hate it when one or two loosely moralized women ruin it for those of us who really suffer from PMS >(

THIS
is the only preston art i’ll ever reblog
because he’s actually being serious on here

i hate preston
but this one time i will reblog his art

wow tom preston made something that was actually good

Exactly.
I myself depend on birth control for my severe, SEVERE bleeding I would get from my period otherwise, and because I have moderate hormonal acne. I don’t have sex. I’m a serial monogamist and I haven’t been in a relationship in 3 years. I haven’t even been on a date.
But you know, I must be a slut and harlot.

I’m about to lose my shit over this
somebody else rant please
because I’m so tired anything I say will sound unintelligent and be completely rude and augh

normally i’d ignore this and keep scrolling but I think I’ll take this one quickly right now.
“I hate it when one or two loosely moralized women ruin it for those of us who really suffer from PMS >(”
Wow.
I think you win the daily “Most Ignorant Statement” award.
Because clearly you have misinterpreted the entire fucking point of the drawing.
Saying that “loosely moralized women” ruin it for other women is like blaming feminine homosexual men for creating the stereotype surrounding the entire gay community.
How dare you imply that someone else’s reasons for taking birth control are less valid than yours just because they make different life choices you fucking twat.
You are not helping this cause or the feminist movement, you are only slut-shaming.
Goodbye.

"loosely moraled women" ….EXCUSE ME, ARE YOU FROM THE PAST? 
also i do not get where this stateside birth control = slut thing even comes from other than a complete ignorance to what the pills are actually used for. it happens a lot with conservatives though, doesn’t it? something relatively innocuous and their minds instantly go to sex and debauchery… and they say the folks “on the left” are the ones with the dirty minds. of course. 
MAKING SENSE = YOU’RE DOING IT SO FUCKING WRONG IT’S NOT EVEN FUNNY.

Pledge Of Allegiance of the Day: The Republican Party of Laurens County, South Carolina, last week unanimously passed a resolution requiring members who wish to run for public office to sign a pledge affirming that they were abstinent before marriage, that they are and will continue to be faithful to their spouse, that they are neither homosexual nor in favor of equal rights for same-sex couples, and that they will never again look at pornography.
The so-called “Resolution of The Laurens County Republican Party regarding The Qualifications of Candidates for the Primary Ballot” was approved by all 13 present members of the party’s executive committee at a meeting held last Tuesday.
An unidentified candidate who was present at the meeting said he was “puzzled” by the resolution, but the committee members refused to answer questions following the vote.
According to an unofficial report, a subcommittee consisting of three members will be responsible for ensuring that candidates meet the required criteria. It remained unclear how the party intended to “hold into account” candidates who ran afoul of the pledge.
Reached for comment, Laurens County Republican Party chairman Bobby Smith said the move was necessary to protect the party’s reputation.
“The party has been pushing for closed primaries,” Smith told the Clinton Chronicle. “People feel the platform has not been adhered to. We want candidates to believe in and uphold the party’s platform.”
The chairman released a statement today saying that, “due to various legal issues,” the party would not be allowed to force potential candidates who have met state qualifications to sign the pledge. However, the party “reserves the right to vet its candidates and will encourage all candidates to uphold the principles of the party’s platform as well as petition candidates to sign a pledge to do so.”

seriously, america. do these sound like sane, rational people that you want to elect to run your country? SERIOUSLY? 
LOOK AT YOUR LIFE, LOOK AT YOUR CHOICES, ETC. 
xoxo sassy british friend.

i always feel like the republicans’ definition of intellectual ‘elitism’ is being able to read and comprehend a domino’s menu.

It was freshman year in college, and just after winter break I started to have awful stomach pains. I couldn’t keep food down, yet my pants were a little tight. I thought maybe the freshman 15, but I played a sport and didn’t drink, so what was the deal?

I finally…

jesus. fucking. christ. i was blown away by the “$80 per month for the pill” just as much as i was by the fact that insurance doesn’t cover it. i get it for free currently but if i was paying, i would get a box of about 4months worth of them for £7.20-ish? it just stuns me that a supposedly civilised country would charge so much for something so cheap. this is the way we’re going to be headed if the conservatives continue to dismantle the NHS. 

while we’re on the subject, what have conservatives got against poor people getting affordable healthcare? was it because of that dinner party that one time when the poor people didn’t compliment the dessert? jesus, those bitches hold a grudge..

Gingrich, Santorum and Romney all pledge to criminalize pornography if elected. Because that will solve all of America’s problems

iheartchaos:

In a move that looks to tackle the biggest problem America faces right now, three GOP candidates— Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney have all pledged to criminalize pornography if elected president. Because it’s not like no one has ever tried that before.

Six GOP Co-Sponsors of PIPA Ask Reid to Cancel Vote

In an incredible turn of events, six Republican Senators have asked Majority Leader Harry Reid not to hold a vote onPIPA, the Senate version of SOPA.

They write, “Prior to committee action, some members expressed substantive concerns about the bill, and there was a commitment to resolve them prior to floor consideration. That resolution has not yet occurred.”

And as an amazing validation of the grassroots response to SOPA, led by groups like Fight for the FutureEFFPublic Knowledge, and Demand Progress, they write, “Since the mark-up, we have increasingly heard from a large number of constituents and other stakeholders with vocal concerns about possible unintended consequences of the proposed legislation, including breaches in cybersecurity, damaging the integrity of the Internet, costly and burdensome litigation, and dilution of First Amendment rights.”

Senators Charles GrassleyOrrin HatchJeff SessionsJohn CornynMike Lee, and Tom Coburn signed the letter.

Here’s the text of the letter. PDF is here.

January 13, 2012

Dear Majority Leader Reid:

We write to express our concerns with your decision to file cloture on the motion to proceed to the PROTECT IP Act (S, 968), We strongly believe that the theft of American intellectual property is a significant problem that must be addressed to protect property rights. However, for both substantive and procedural reasons, the process at this point is moving too quickly and this step may be premature.

As you know, on May 26. 2011. the Senate Judiciary- Committee favorably reported the bill by voice vote. Prior to committee action, some members expressed substantive concerns about the bill, and there was a commitment to resolve them prior to floor consideration. That resolution has not yet occurred.

Since the mark-up, we have increasingly heard from a large number of constituents and other stakeholders with vocal concerns about possible unintended consequences of the proposed legislation, including breaches in cybersecurity, damaging the integrity of the Internet, costly and burdensome litigation, and dilution of First Amendment rights. Moreover, in light of potential cybersecurity implications, we believe hearing from the Administration and relevant agencies is imperative, As always, our current fiscal crisis demands we carefully consider legislation that would cost taxpayers up to $48 million according to the Congressional Budget Office, These are serious issues that must be considered in an informed, deliberative and responsible manner. This underscores the need to resolve as many outstanding concerns as possible prior to proceeding to floor consideration.

Furthermore, we want to ensure that S. 968 will be afforded full and fair consideration on the Senate floor. It is important that the bill be fully debated and amendments not limited. We would like a firm commitment that once the Senate considers S. 968, the amendment process will be open, with senators being able to offer their amendments without the filling of the amendment tree, and that cloture will not be prematurely filed on the bin.

We are all in agreement that the online distribution and sale of pirated content and counterfeit goods impose a huge cost on the American economy in terms of lost jobs, lost sales, lost innovation and lost income. We also believe, however, that we need to arrive at the right solution in the right way on this important issue. To do so, we must have adequate time to properly analyze and resolve these concerns to the best extent possible prior to proceeding to the bill.

While we remain fully committed to addressing outstanding issues with S. 968, we believe that, at this point, the scheduled consideration of the bill on January 24, 2012, may not permit Oslo work through many of the concems that have been raised.

Sincerely,

Charles Grassley, Orrin Hatch, Jeff Sessions, John Cornyn, Mike Lee, Tom Coburn

UPDATE: And Sen. Ben Cardin [D, MD] adds his name to the list of co-sponsors walking back their support. Full up-to-date vote tally here.
