One of the things that I decided a LONG time ago was that I wanted a FEMALE doctor whenever possible particularly for the plumbing. I have nothing against you guys, in fact, I love you dearly for most purposes, but there are just things that you have no freaking concept of no matter how hard you try. Our hormones and the way our bodies react to them is one primary reason for my decision. Hormones affect the way our bodies function, the way our minds work, our moods, and even the way the world appears to us on any given day. And because our hormones do fluctuate from one day to the next, even we cannot predict what we’ll be like tomorrow. It’s a crap shoot for us, too.
But at least I could get a doctor who had experienced this herself and not a guy who had only read about it in a book. Yes, it does make a difference.
So what happens but NOW we have hundreds of predominately white haired white MEN sitting in rooms across this nation, MEN who have never had a cramp, never used a tampon, wouldn’t know a menstrual cup if it suddenly attached itself to his ____, do not know the basic biology of how a woman even has a menstrual cycle much less what happens when she gets pregnant, and has to be told that there is NO SUCH THING as a birth control method that is 100% effective shy of locking the damsel in a tower with a moat and pulling up the drawbridge, but these people now think they know what is best for 187 MILLION WOMEN’S reproduction choices??
I don’t think so.
This is so inherently ignorant as well as arrogant as to be both pathetic and outrageous at the same time.
I have TWO degrees in Biology. If you need me to teach you about the female plumbing, I’ll do it. I’m not bashful. I might embarrass the heck out of others because I just plow right into it. I do not use coarse language. If you want to know, ask.
One thing I do not tolerate is misinformation like that stuff some congressman came up with that said that “when a female is raped, the body has ways to just shut that whole thing down.” Seriously, dude? Then why is there even such a thing as a rapist wanting to have a say in whether or not she can get an abortion? Or if she doesn’t find out in time, whether or not she can put it up for adoption? Or if she keeps it, can he get paternal rights? Tell me the answers to those questions, knucklehead. Sheesh.
Or that woman I saw on TV that claimed that a pregnancy resulting from a rape or incest was a “gift from God” even if the victim was a child of only 10. Excuse me? She’s too young to consent, to vote, to drink, to buy a gun, to smoke, but she’s old enough to be a mother? Explain that to me. I’m missing something here. Even the Bible, Talmud, and Torah permit abortions in those cases. What the effing HELL is the matter with these people??
Bottom line-they’ve taken this science of DNA combining to make a new organism waaaaaay the HELL too far. Just because Science (with the capital S) can explain the joining of two genomes does NOT mean that when that instant happens that Life (with the capital L) happens. That has never definitively been proven. Science can only tell you when the fetus become “viable” (defined as being capable of sustaining itself outside of the environment of the place in which it was growing, i.e. the uterus in this case.) Normally, this means when the lungs are able to fully expand and can exchange O2 for CO2 on their own without mechanical help. This occurs somewhere around the 30th week. If the fetus is delivered after that time, it is called a premature birth.
All of this means, my sisters, that we have an overriding issue on the ballot on November 8, 2022. It is called our Right to our own Freedom to Choose our Reproductive Futures, our Right to Privacy, our Right to our Freedom of Speech to say who we are and what our future looks like, our Right to not have another person’s Religion forced down our throats or up our vaginas, and our Right to Self-expression as Individuals. Males-this affects you, too. You say you support us. Then vote accordingly. It is you who will be chased down to help pay the child support. It is you who will have to step up to support her if she can’t work due to complications. We need you to back our play on this.
For the love of God, VOTE BLUE IN 2022. From the top to the very bottom of the ballot. We need every Democrat elected in Federal, State, and local election.
