Just call me the Radical Hooker.

On the tape below, MSNBC Lawrence O’Donnell says, “I have friends who depend on Planned Parenthood.” I do, too. When I was uninsured, I depended on PP myself. I’ve never had an abortion, but I’ve had lots and lots of sex. You have, too. And so have your friends and everyone else you know. Sexual health requires responsibility, including regular exams, STI tests, and contraception. If you know anyone who’s DONE IT, you know someone who’s utilized the services of Planned Parenthood.
You dirty skank.

“Stop just a second,” says Glenn Back on the the clip below, reacting to O’Donnell’s totally unshocking revelation. “Hookers? Who? Who depends on Planned Parenthood? (whines) I’ve got 400 abortions that I HAVE to have…. I’m DEPENDING on Planned Parenthood.”

If you can stand it, give the boys a listen, will you? You’ll understand so much about how entitled, right-wing white men feel about women. In their universe, any woman taking control of her sexual health is a prostitute–and that’s A Bad Thing. A burn-in-hell kinda thing.
Adding to the moral confusion, these white men proceed make fun of people who need condoms, then they will make fun of people who want to take the Pill instead of using condoms, and THEN they will make fun of people who don’t want to wear condoms. Huh?
Perhaps Barbara Kruger could shed some light on the subject?
I would also add: “100% of them will never be shamed for their sexuality.” Fuckers.

    Holy shit. This makes me want to riot. PS Did you see that Liar Johnson commented on my post about her? Because my little rant is apparently that important…

  2. Shannon Drury says:

    And I commented right back. I think I should post HER address and phone number–the better to "pray" for her return to sanity!

  3. Ahab says:

    Jodi Jacobson wrote a great commentary at RH Reality Check, calling out Glenn Beck on his "hookers" comment.

    Just wanted to say a quick word about the artwork you have used at the bottom of this post and that is, how that message hits you right in the gut when you see it. Thanks for reminding me of it by using it in your wonderful post.

"With The Radical Housewife, Shannon Drury shares her journey as a stay-at-home mother and activist, filling in a wide gap within the feminist sphere. Drury not only takes the reader through her own feminist awakening and activist career, but also provides a bit of Feminist 101, reviewing the history of US feminism in an easily accessible way. A mixture of unflinching honesty and snarky humor, this book serves as a necessary reminder that mothers are an integral part of the feminist movement, despite not always being recognized as such." --Avital Norman Nathman, editor of The Good Mother Myth
