Think I’m kidding? Do you think that’s something from The Onion? Nope. It’s the real deal, brought to you by the uber-crazies in Arizona:
I found this article this morning – after I finished the post below about women-as-chattel.
My first thought was ‘WTF???” – of course, right? Any sane woman’s first thought would be “WTF???” But it appears that sanity is a very scarce commodity in the theocratic wingnut state of Arizona, where the insane Republican mullahs reign supreme. The mullahs— er, make that the State Legislature — may soon enable your employer to fire you if he or she deems you to be having slutty recreational sex. It’s not bad enough that Arizona is a “right to work” state – which basically means that workers have no rights and that your employer is already able to fire anyone he or she wants to for almost any reason, but now? This law would allow your employer to question single women about their birth control. And yes, you slut with PCOS, I’m talking to you.
Can you wrap your head around that conversation? I can’t.
Now, of course, there’s no provision in this heinous piece of shit masquerading as Arizona House Bill 2625 to allow an employer to fire a man with a prescription for boner pills for being promiscuous. Oh, no, that’s different, isn’t it?
It’s always different. Whether it’s forcing women to wear a bag over their heads, mandating state rape with a vaginal probe, throwing acid in her face or slicing off her genitals with a dull and filthy razor blade, it’s always different. Men all over the world justify their brutal repression of women – and we women put up with it. In fact, Arizona House Bill 2625 was authored by a woman, Republican Debbie Lesko, evidently one of the brainwashed women who buy into the notion that women are second-class citizens.
I trotted over to the Google to see what kind of woman would write such a heinous bill. Debbie Lesko looks like she’s in her mid-to-late 30’s or early 40’s, well within the need-for-contraception window. Now, more than likely Ms. Lesko is a virtuous married woman who has sex only for procreation purposes, but let’s say her husband either divorces her or dies. That leaves Debbie Lesko as a single woman with a possible need for birth control.
Well, Debbie Lesko, what are you going to say when your boss asks you about your birth control? I’d like to hear the answer.
p.s. Feel free to ask her that question yourself: @DebbieLesko
