Check this out! ”A pregnant woman is just a “host” that should not have the right to end her pregnancy, Virginia State Sen. Steve Martin (R) wrote in a Facebook rant defending his anti-abortion views.
Martin, the former chairman of the Senate Education and Health Committee, wrote a lengthy post about his opinions on women’s bodies on his Facebook wall last week in response to a critical Valentine’s Day card he received from reproductive rights advocates.
"I don’t expect to be in the room or will I do anything to prevent you from obtaining a contraceptive," Martin wrote. "However, once a child does exist in your womb, I’m not going to assume a right to kill it just because the child’s host (some refer to them as mothers) doesn’t want it." Martin then changed his post on Monday afternoon to refer to the woman as the "bearer of the child" instead of the "host."
“Reality TV star Lauren Conrad may not be the first person to spring to mind when you think of ace comebacks. So I was pleasantly surprised to see her deliver this sharp quip to an awkward, sexist question that some men seem think is somehow charming (??). Just, no.”
Way to be, LC.
“Sarah Silverman has seen her share of controversies — after all, her no-holds-barred style, coupled with her wit, intelligence and sweetness, has been her calling card for years. But in this new video, Silverman really pushes boundaries by using Jesus Christ himself as a platform to discuss women’s health causes, a cause about which she has been vocal recently.”
So, I was never big on the “Keep Calm” trend from last year, but I just now saw this article, and I’m nearly at a loss for words. I don’t understand how anyone could have found these shirts funny, let alone paid actual money for them. What more do people need to see to realize that our society is sick? That the more individuals strive for equal rights, the more our men seem to be reaching an unprecedented height of violence and misogyny? How do we change this dangerous trend? I don’t know. But a good start would be to stop perpetuating the tired line, “boys will be boys,” because at this rate, these boys will never mature into real men.
