dcwomenkickingass: I’ve been a big fan of the rebooted Wonder Woman. I though Azzarello did a great job boiling down Wonder Woman to basic qualities - strength, loyalty, determination and giving her a bit of a tough edge. He also brought in a good supporting cast. It was a shake-up that was much needed. Add Cliff Chiang’s bold art and you had a terrific team. But then the third issue came and...

gailsimone: geekyjessica: “I do not feel that it is reactionary or even inaccurate to describe an unwanted, non-indicated transvaginal ultrasound as “rape”. If I insert ANY object into ANY orifice without informed consent, it is rape.

“Lois Lane. If not a name to conjure by, it was certainly one muttered to ward off evil. In the days before digital, or even analog, recording, her keen memory and biting questions could throw off any man beguiled by her face, and back any woman into a corner. The downtrodden whispered her name to keep the powerful at bay, because despite her upbringing as a general’s favorite daughter, she had an...
This is so babies: Birth Control 101 For Idiots →
bemusedlybespectacled: This is hormonal birth control. As you can see on the box, you take exactly one pill per day. To make sure it works, you need to take one pill every day at the same time, or it stops working.

Woman: Can I have birth control?
Woman: I got pregnant because I didn't have birth control and I don't want the fetus. Can I have an abortion?
Woman: I gave birth to my child but since I wasn't expecting it, I can't afford daycare. Can I have help paying for it?

Government: But seriously, you're a man. You can do what ever you want.
Government: Shut up, you sinning, freeloading hussy.
