How the GOP is Wrong
With all the talk of the RNC in town and Tampa going absolutely nuts over having every hotel in the Metropolitan Statistical Area booked to capacity for a week to hold the upwards of 50,000 people in town, it seems the Republicans have stepped up their crazy talk to the point where I can’t see straight anymore. Fair warning, rant ahead.
The official party platform now is to “vigorously enforce” the distribution of all pornography. The largest consumers of porn are religious conservatives, who are in turn more likely to be Republican. Way to hurt your own party there!
Republicans — or at least one of them — are now claiming that pregnancies our of wedlock are just as bad as pregnancies resulting from rape. I’m pretty certain the ladies involved would claim otherwise!
Todd Akin — yes, THAT Todd Akin — is now claiming that if an
adult homosexual male drinks human breastmilk it will cure the man of homosexuality. No word yet on if this applies to butch lesbians yet. (Alright, so the story is totally false, but he’s so off the rails that it still sounds like something he would say, doesn’t it? Thank you FreakyV and Josh for correcting me.)
What the fuck is wrong with these people? These are the same folks who worked language into the official party line that wants to ban abortion with a constitutional amendment with NO EXCEPTIONS ALLOWED! And they want to change the definition of rape so that incest and drug-induced scenarios don’t count!
Republicans keep saying that they want to keep Government out of people’s lives, but they keep wanting to invade our bedrooms and control the decisions made by women.
If the GOP as it stands now had it’s way, no woman could decide if she was raped without getting approval from the State. If she got pregnant, the State could force her to remain pregnant. They want to take away choice, strip her of her humanity, and turn her and her fetus into State Property. It is enslavement, but at her expense because they’ll strip her of her recently-obtained healthcare in the process!
I do not understand, with stances such as these, how any woman, husband, brother, father, or son can vote Republican and be able to look any woman in the eye with dignity. It is disgraceful, this agenda they are pushing.
I love sex. I love sex with Mrs. AP. If/When we have other partners, I will love sex with them as well. I want the freedom to choose to have that sex, and to protect us all while we have that sex, and to photograph it or video-record it as I see fit and to post those images or films as I see fit. I want to embrace my sexuality and my kinks in all their shining, thrusting, orgasmic glory.
The Republicans want to take that away from you and me; I say we take that power away from them.
Stay SINful, friends.
