In the past few days I’m 6 for 6 on fetus fetishist Twitter blockage. My brutal religious insensitivity in particular seems to have struck a discordant note:
WTF? Practically every time I look at the News there’s a story about a child-molesting priest — even just in the past 24 hours, for god’s sake (although to their credit, child-molesting priests have been low-profile for the last hour). As vapid a means of communication as it might be, even Twitter isn’t Denialsville.
Guess what: as long as ultraconservative religious nuts of any persuasion insist on jamming their noses into the private affairs of women by trying to use the coercive power of the state to impose their ancient superstitions on us, they can expect to encounter significant headwinds. Certainly the pushback will be far more profound than random insults on Twitter.
Let’s rewind a little so we can fully understand what we’re dealing with. When Woodworth first started inanely tweeting about a so-called “respectful discussion about when live begins”, he initiated an instant pro-choice pile-on accusing him of seeking to compromise womens’ reproductive rights. At the time he insisted it had nothing, oh no, nothing at all, to do with abortion.
And now he openly admits, “Haha, fooled ya”:
Woodworth favours reopening the abortion debate, he told reporters Monday, as he acknowledged that a motion he tabled Monday morning was a first step toward doing so.
So frankly, I see no compelling reason to be “polite” and “respectful” to these lying fucks.
Game fucking on, fetushists. Better toughen up.
