Why is it that after a few weeks of outrage, our collective memory seems to have amnesia?
People have gotten angry, but this issue has not been resolved, and we cannot let it be forgotten.

@eleanorstrouser:

Went to get my taxes done and they insisted on performing a transvaginal ultrasound. This is getting out of hand.

And I’ll use this as a reminder that we are on day 53 (FIFTY THREE) here in Texas of actual forced transvaginal ultrasounds before abortion. So, this is funny but it also reminds me that here in Texas actual people are being forced to endure this procedure without being able to consent to it.

Join SAGE tomorrow night, Wednesday the 7th at 8pm in Hamilton 609 for our next meeting! Come for crazy cool discussion and more! And eat free food as well =DThe topic will be "Obarnard" responses: elitist, sexist, or something else?Obama decided to speak at the Barnard Commencement this year, and all of a sudden bwog is full of comments such as “Barnard is full of academically inferior students that are able to use OUR campus, take OUR classes, and are stereotypically easy to get in bed. We feel like we worked our asses off to get here, and it’s annoying as f*** that Barnard can get the milk for free, so to speak.” and the lovely “While you guys were perfecting your deepthroating techniques and experimenting with scissoring and anal play, we were learning Calculus (usually by sophomore year of high school).” And how do you interpret Barnard President’s statement that this “probably is 19-year-olds writing at 4:30 in the morning”? And PrezBo’s belief that comments like those above “reflect the views of hardly more than just a few people”?Bwog, the Spec, the New York Times, Jezebel and many more have already picked up this story, but what do you think?

  • Woman: Can I have birth control?
  • Government: No.
  • Woman: I got pregnant because I didn't have birth control and I don't want the fetus. Can I have an abortion?
  • Government: No.
  • Woman: I gave birth to my child but since I wasn't expecting it, I can't afford daycare. Can I have help paying for it?
  • Government: No.
  • Woman: Well, why can't I have birth control?
  • Government: Because. Sex isn't for recreation.
  • Woman: It can help regulate my period and benefit me in other ways.
  • Government: Too bad.
  • Man: For no reason other than for recreational sex, may I have birth control?
  • Government: Do you have a penis?
  • Man: YES, YES I DO!!
  • Government: WELL HOWDY, VALID CITIZEN. You can buy condoms by the dozens. Here, here's a pack of special condom for "His Pleasure." Oooh, these come in different colours and flavours. Here, try these. They have ribs on them. And this one glows in the dark!! LOL OMG DICK LIGHTSABER!!
  • Government: But seriously, you're a man. You can do what ever you want.
  • Woman: But-
  • Government: Shut up, you sinning, freeloading hussy.
