Let’s set aside the war on women for a moment and look at the war on our fucking wallets. All the intelligent commentary I’ve read about the Hobby Lobby decision nets out to the fact that religious quibbles about the whys, wherefores and consequences of ejaculation are the sole and solemn justification for closely-held corporations to weasel out of a bill that they want to shirk. (Of course, that’s only if the target of said ejaculation is a vagina, since the Court specifically held that Hobby Lobby can’t mess with gay employees.) Since the court also held that the government could pay for contraception because the Hobby Lobbyists won’t, that means that we’re paying to support Hobby Lobby’s closely held breeder fetish.
It’s not bad enough that we’re all paying for the Medicaid coverage of the Hobby Lobby (and Wal-Mart, Target, etc) employees who can’t make a living on the shit wages those places pay. Now we have to buy IUDs and birth control pills for the rare employees who make enough to purchase a policy on the Exchange (which, I assume, given their low pay, will be a heavily subsidized policy).
In other words, Hobby Lobby is coming to the government, hat in hand. In addition to Medicaid and Exchange subsidies, they are begging for a custom, Jesus-flavored cherry on top of their government benefit package, because of the special feels they feel whenever one of their employees fucks without reproductive intent.
I realize that women are mad about this, and well they should be. The Supremes just put a hand-embossed “fuck you” into the mail to over half of the population. And any man with half a brain and a working penis should be pissed about the cock-blocking aspects of Hobby Lobby’s war to separate women from their IUDs. But even those among us who can no longer be roused to sexual congress should be roused to political action, because Hobby Lobby is digging into everyone else’s wallets in their Biblical quest to spare their own.
