I'm having a really hard time with the current flood of misogynistic legislation coming from all over the US. I mean, it's not really a surprise that a lot of the philosophical underpinnings of the abortion conversation is sub rosa punishment of women for having sex; I've known that for a long time. But some of these bills don't even bother to hide the contempt for women that drives them.

I don't have anything to say about this that hasn't been said elsewhere, really. I just feel unspeakably demoralized, and dehumanized, by this flood of shit flowing down the sewer of our legislative system. I mean, I know that the patriarchy hates women, but it's another thing to see that reified so literally into laws and attempts at laws. I can't even deal with it.
