Co-creator of The Daily Show Lizz Winstead has a message or two for America. She is not only speaking for herself (from experience), and for me, she's speaking-- loudly and clearly-- for women everywhere. She's toured the country for nearly two years, raising money and awareness for Planned Parenthood and NARAL. She is fighting hard for freedoms that women won decades ago.
She's shouting at the top of her lungs-- laced with humor, but in all seriousness-- for justice, for women's reproductive rights, for women's rights period. She's fed up, as are so many of us, men and women alike, over the laws being passed and proposed that intrude on women's health, privacy, decisions about their own bodies and futures, and their civil rights.
Lizz is now launching www.ladypartsjustice.com, "a place where we create messaging that dares to speak the language of truth, without giving a rat’s ass about how it will be judged by the self-righteous."
Look, it’s time to stop being polite and start asking, “What the fuck do you think you are trying to pull here?”
It is time to ask, “Why the fuck are men and women who are inexcusably incompetent continually being elected into statehouses, governorships and THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS? And how the fuck is it that this asshole serves on THE SCIENCE COMMITTEE of The House of Representatives?!
Women are not faking rape and they don’t have magical powers to deactivate rape sperm. We are not pregnant before we are pregnant, we can’t have an abortion if we are not pregnant, and I think we can all agree, women shouldn’t be forced to carry stillborn babies.
Abortions don’t cause mental instability and the HPV vaccine doesn’t make girls mentally retarded. No woman’s boss should be able to demand information from her to decide if her reason for wanting birth control is moral enough to grant permission.
OH Yeah, and Planned Parenthood isn’t turning Girl Scouts into Commulezzies.
Please go here for the rest. And please share it everywhere you can.
