Dead or Alive?
Will a pair of pretty blue eyes swing American women to the Right this November - in spite of meaning that they'd be voting a platform that's against their best interests and their very lives?
Don't know - but I think that "slippery slope" is here - just not the one anyone imagined when the right for a woman to choose was settled in Roe v. Wade.

For instance:
 - Would you like to join me in a betting pool on how long it will take a lawyer defending a man against a rape charge - to say that because the victim became pregnant - she couldn't possibly have been raped? (I'm betting before December 31st of this year).

- If the Personhood Law ever sees the light of the Federal day (which is probable if Romney/Ryan win), then I fully expect the law to stand equally in defense of the poor sperm (plural and singular) - who are often recklessly spilled, spurted or contained by men - for no reason other than their own pleasure (the man's, not the sperm's - although, who's to say sperm don't enjoy it too? Carpe Diem and all that....).

- And what about the female egg? It's an organism too; one which when invaded by a sperm (another organism), creates a brand new organism. So which organism has dibs on life first? The egg? The sperm?
Oh, sure, the poor, lowly sperm doesn't live long, but come on, the female body dumps that egg every month (sometimes even against her will!) until she's too old to attract the male of the species (talk about unfair!).

- If we become a land of States that pass the Personhood Law, then we must say, without equivication, that masturbation should become illegal for men (still okay for us lowly females as we don't spill any living organisms - that we know of, anyway). And obviously, since any contraceptive would prevent that person from becoming a...person...then no sex.

At all.



Hence, the only POSITIVELY SAFE method for having a baby would be freezing an egg and ONE gush of sperm (enjoy it, fellas, it's the last time you'll use that penis for anything but ridding yourself of bodily fluids like beer) and then allowing the doctors to do their thing....

And now, for your use, a banner and three icons....

slippery slope

The GOP are always stupid. Always have been and always will be out of touch. They think Ryan is pretty enough to sway women, but we're not that stupid. They always try that. They tried to get the women's vote by picking Palin last time. She turned out to be a nutcase. Which, is what you get when you brainwash a women into believing your crap...

Personally, I think they've shot themselves in the foot.

I hope you're right but

there have been at least two times in history when a 'pretty face' might have been the reason for a win: George Bush Sr & his running mate, Dan Quayle, who, even though he couldn't spell potato - still got Bush elected, in spite of 8 previous years of a Republican Administration - and then, heck, my own mother, a DIED-IN-THE-WOOL Republican (no matter what!), voted the Democrat Presidential ticket because ... well, Kennedy was "gorgeous" to use her words. *thud*

I do wish I had more faith in our own gender to believe we won't see a repeat....

Re: I hope you're right but

They've been using that war on women ticket too much to win this time. They never know when to shut up (thankfully) so we won't know they're plans. They want things back to when being white and male were the only ones in power. It's never gonna happen.

To quote Helen Reddy, "We know too much to go back and pretend."

Yeah, it's probably a bad sign when you wish the world WOULD end in December just so you could get away from the freaking Republicans.

*shakes head*

I'm so tired of it all. But I'm not too tired to vote. Straight Democrat ticket, baby.

We're all tired of it and that may be

our undoing. :( But here's hoping that even though they're tired - folks will do what you're doing! :)

Straight Democratic ticket here too but I don't live in a swing state. And for the record, I DIDN'T vote for Dan Quayle when he first ran for Senator (my first election) (I lived in his area and knew too much about him).
