As you no doubt have heard by now (unless you’ve been out of the country, living under a rock, or comatose), Virginia Republicans – and Republicans around the country – have been on a rampage in recent months with regard to telling women, as well as their doctors, what should and should not be done to/with their bodies. Is it ironic or just pathetic that many of the leaders in this effort have been men like Virginia State Senator (and Republican Caucus Chairman) Ryan McDougle (R-Mechanicsville) ? You decide. Anyway, it appears that McDougle’s support for trans-vaginal ultrasound legislation has not gone over too well with at least a few folks, judging from the raunchy comments being left on his Facebook page. Enjoy! :)
*”Hey, since you’re so interested in my health, I just wanted to let you know that I’ve been really horny lately because I’m ovulating. But don’t worry; I won’t engage in dangerous heterosexual sex that could result in a pregnancy. This is because I’m a really fat and hairy Lesbian and I plan on having sex with women for the rest of my life, the really butchy dykey kind. The current object of my affections, and central character in the majority of the sexual fantasies at the moment, is Alison Bechdel (pictured below). Thanks for showing me the light in regards to my own sexual health, in affirming that having sex with men in more trouble than it’s worth. The fact that women are sexier anyway, it just a happy coincidence.”
This is clearly the kind of thing that happens when the civil conventions of our society start to break down.
