This post is for anyone who likes vaginas, was born to someone who has a vagina, or loves someone with a vagina. I’m pretty certain that if you are reading this post this post is for YOU.
People with vaginas are important. People with vaginas are mothers, wives, friends, sisters, and daughters. If you are a heterosexual man you spend a fair amount of time thinking about how you would like to put your penis in a vagina. Vaginas are the gateway to life – either by something going in or coming out. Without vaginas society would not exist. I’m pretty sure if everyone with a vagina went on strike our whole world would collapse.
Some members of our government have forgotten how important vaginas are. They forgot that people with vaginas vote. When the government is not trying to dicktate who people can and cannot marry they are trying to dicktate how people with vaginas should manage their reproductive health. In fact, I am pretty certain that our government and members of a certain political party are on a mission to ultimately control people with vaginas. I have something to tell our government. I have something to tell the GOP. I have something to say to the insurance companies across America.
The people with the pussies are fed up.
Yes, I am a vulgar feminist. I also vote. I have three daughters who I want to have more reproductive health choices than I have had and I want them paid for. Yes, I am pro-choice, but being pro-choice is not about abortion to me. Being pro-choice is about having options, having access to those options, and not having a government or anyone for that matter to tell me what I can and cannot do with my body.
Today there was testimony given in a Congressional hearing on birth control. I want you to see how many women testified.
No one with a vagina, a uterus, or ovaries was asked to testify. What does this say about our government and our society? A great deal! And this is an issue that women need to stick together on because this isn’t an abortion issue, a birth control issue, or a religious issue – this is a personal issue that men and government wish to control. They want to control our bodies, our medical decisions, and tell us what is good for us and what they will pay for when it comes to our overall health. When are we as women going to become outraged and say NO MORE? When are women going to put a stop from being robbed of the ability to make choices about our healthcare and/or to reduce the access to it? Why should five men testify on whether or not birth control options for women should be covered by insurance? Why is it that vasectomy is covered 100% by most insurance companies in the United States but tubal ligation is not? Why is Viagra and erectile dysfunction medications paid for by most insurance companies in the United States but hormonal birth control pills or hormonal treatment for women who have sexual dysfunction not covered? What this really should say to every person with half a brain is that our government and some men in this country want to dismiss that women have brains and can think for themselves and reduce us to nothing but a vagina. A vagina that needs to be controlled. A vagina that has no rights as to what goes in or what comes out and when and what it should cost.
The reason this is still taking place in 2012 is because men still control our society and our government and they believe they are more important. They think that because they have a penis they are special. If their penis can’t fuck a vagina they feel they should be entitled to a little blue pill that gives them hours of pleasure with a woman’s vagina. If they have diabetes or a disease that impacts their ability to get it up to fuck a vagina then they think they deserve penile implants and pumps paid for by insurance to make it possible. However a woman who seeks to get testosterone pellets or cream to enhance her sexual activity will be denied coverage by insurance. A woman who needs surgery on her vagina, that was damaged in child birth, to relieve her of pain and make sex more pleasurable will be denied coverage by her insurance. If a woman wants to control her reproductive organs with contraception because she is not ready or might be damaging to her health she must pay out of pocket for it even though pregnancy and childbirth are often covered 80 – 100% by insurance companies and is far more costly, especially if it is high risk. It doesn’t even make economical sense to insurance companies to deny women birth control coverage.
There is a war on women and it is time for the vagina brigade to fight for the right to have equal health insurance coverage and health care access for all our health care needs. We should stop the people with penises from dicktating whether or not we give birth and how. We as women need to make health care coverage in this country more equitable. We need to stop our government from attempting to police every aspect of our reproductive and sexual organs and its processes. This is about our right to make health care decisions without government interference. It is time for women to “occupy” our local, state, and federal governments and end men debating and making decisions about how we govern our lives and diminishing our value to that of only a vagina, an egg donor, and an incubator.
