The economy. Education. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. These are just a few of the many important issues facing American people today. And the one GOP wannabe presidential candidate Rick Santorum has zeroed in his focus on?

“Hardcore” pornography.

Women Leave “Vagina Updates” On Virginia State Senator’s Facebook Page

Meet Virginia State Senator Ryan McDougle! He is one of the state lawmakers who has come out to ardently support the state’s mandatory transvaginal ultrasound bill, almost as if he had no idea what was really entailed in women’s health decisions that are usually made by women. He is pictured above speaking with some of his constituents, and he invites other constituents to visit him on his Facebook page! Some of them have, and they have some questions that concern their vaginas, ovaries, and uteri they have felt compelled to share with him, what with his sudden interest in the reproductive goings-on of strangers! Want to come take a look? There are screenshots!

Prompted by just one of the disturbingly numerous state-sponsored bills that require women to jump through a variety of “shaming hoops” before getting a (federally-legal and medically-safe) abortion, women have started flooding the Facebook page of Sen. McDougle with updates about the daily activities of their lady business. Graphic updates. Well, you know, since he’s volunteered himself to be so involved in making health decisions for women, they had every logical reason to seek him out. For advice! The comments have been, predictably, deleted from the page — but not before screenshots were captured. Read more…

Words cannot express how much I want to thank and then high-five Ohio State Senator Nina Turner. She’s the politician who’s introduced a bill that says men looking for a prescription for Viagra would first need to get a sex therapist’s permission, a cardiac stress test, and confirmation that “the patient’s symptoms are not solely attributable to one or more psychological conditions.” The bill is, of course, meant to underscore the inherent inequality in anti-abortion bills that require women to get medically unnecessary ultrasounds and other procedures. But is she really serious?

“I’m just as serious as the men policymakers across the nation who introduced bills to regulate a woman’s reproductive health,” Turner said in the above interview with MSNBC. She continued, tongue placed firmly in cheek, “For far too long elected officials, especially women … have abdicated our responsibility to show men [as] much love in the reproductive health arena as they have shown us over the years. So my Senate bill 307 is all about the love and making sure we look out for men’s sexual health.” Keep reading »

Mitt Romney must think low-income women don’t really need breast exams. And those Pap smears that could detect cervical cancer? So frivolous! Surely that’s the only thing the GOP frontrunner could have meant when he told folks in Missouri he would “get rid of” Planned Parenthood, as well as a number of other programs, to reduce the debt. “The test is pretty simple. Is the program so critical, it’s worth borrowing money from China to pay for it?” Romney said. “And on that basis of course you get rid of Obamacare, that’s the easy one. Planned Parenthood, we’re going to get rid of that. The subsidy for Amtrak, I’d eliminate that. The National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities.” Keep reading »

Senator Rick Santorum — long known for his insightful analyses of same-sex marriage (a mere gateway, as he alluded, to human-dog couples) and more recently for his repudiation of education — proclaimed in 1994 that before single mothers continued on their heedless quest to destroy the “fabric of the country,” they needed a swift “kick in the butt.”

I was a single mom, living separately from my child’s father or any other adult, until my son was four. I worked full-time in order to support myself and my child and, during that time, there were many things I needed: child care that I could both trust and afford, health insurance (I worked freelance and was responsible for paying for own medical care), and the occasional night off. Topping that list, I now realize, should have been a kick in the butt.

Frankly, I’m flattered that a busy family man of Santorum’s stature would be willing to take time out of his day to spur me on, literally, as a responsible cowboy would his trusty (but, face it, lazy) horse. Keep reading »

Hank For Senate: Cat Runs For Office In Virginia

The race for a Senate seat from Virginia may evolve into a cat fight now that one Springfield resident has tossed his collar into the ring.

Hank may not be the typical political animal: he has spent time on the streets; he’s never voted; and he really doesn’t seem to like wearing clothes to do his best work.

That’s right, former Virginia Govs. George Allen (R) and Tim Kaine (D) now face a feline foe. Hank’s a former street cat and political independent who advocates a job creation platform and “milk in every bowl.”According to his Twitter account, Hank is also passionate about the creation of a Privacy Bill of Rights and the protection of consumer data.

Did y’all catch last night’s Republican debate? If not, allow me to present my favorite moment, and by favorite, I mean most facepalm-inducing. The moderator read aloud a viewer’s question asking the candidates if they “believe” in birth control and why or why not. First of all, it is absolutely stunning to me that we are even talking about believing in birth control in this day and age. But then the crowd boos!? Do their boos mean that they don’t “believe” in birth control? Who are these people? Are they virgins? The entire Duggar family? I may be very liberal myself, but I know conservatives, have friends who have voted Republican, and I cannot think of a single one, young or old, who does not believe in birth control. It’s not Santa Claus! What decade are we living in? 

Today’s Lady News: Rick Santorum Used To Be Pro-Choice

  • Huffington Post has uncovered a December 1995 issue of Philadelphia Magzine, in which vehemently anti-abortion Sen. Rick Santorum said he was pro-choice. “I was basically pro-choice all my life, until I ran for Congress,” Santorum said. “But it had never been something I thought about.” You can read a scanned and highlighted image of the Philadelpha Magazine article, including Santorum’s explanation for why he changed his views, at the link.

Okay, you’ve heard about how Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s name has also been associated with ”the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex,” right? (Thank you, Dan Savage). So why, why, why would supposed Rick Santorum supporters create an ad in which mud — suspiciously resembling the aforementioned excrement — is shot at the candidate by a faux-looking Mitt Romney? I mean, the picture on the Spreading Santorum site exactly resembles the mud spatterings portrayed in the ad. Unreal. [Huffington Post]

“I want to create every opportunity for women to be able to serve this country … but I do have concerns about women in front-line combat. I think that could be a very compromising situation, where people naturally may do things that may not be in the interest of the mission because of other types of emotions that are involved. It already happens, of course, with the camaraderie of men in combat, but I think it would be even more unique if women were in combat. And I think that’s not in the best interests of men, women or the mission.”

Yesterday the Pentagon announced new rules that will open up 14,000 more positions for women in the military that put them closer to combat positions, like missile launcher crew members and tank mechanics. The new rules go into effect this summer. But Sen. Rick Santorum told CNN’s John King he’s not too sure us ladies would be able to handle combat roles because of “other types of emotions” getting in the way, whatever that means. Fear? Having a sadz because of our periods? Does it matter? Keep reading »
