Most people delete disapproving comments. Here at Jennie Smash, we make separate posts about them. This is not because we are fair, or balanced, ahem. It is because we have, as a very intelligent shrink once informed us, “a tendency to perseverate.”
Anyhoo. For those of you who don’t read the comments — and why don’t you? Do you have jobs or something? — here is the short version of the argument below. Basically, I am terrified that Roe vs. Wade will be overturned, and having one-two justices appointed by Chimpy McGee fills me with fear. However, as an anonymous commenter pointed out, there are of course many other issues involved here, both in terms of who should get appointed, and in terms of what the Supreme Court does on a day-to-day basis. (By which, I mean, of course, get pedicures and drink mojitos while slave boys fan them with palm fronds.)
But I get mad. So I suggested my anonymous pal get his head out of his ass. This wasn’t nice, and worse than that, it was a bad way to conduct an argument. But I’m not very mature. You all knew that.
However, all other issues aside? The thing that fills my wee heart with fear is the idea that someone could swoop in and decide that I am not actually the owner of my lady parts, but rather their summer caretaker or such. That my uterus and other associated bits are actually state property. That seems, I dunno, like Communism to me. And while the Supreme Court nominations aren’t the other thing that can affect my reproductive freedom, it seems sorta silly to say they’re not a big factor.
However, if you’re looking for in-depth political commentary, anonymous, you probably want to read a news site. Jennie Smash is more of, you know, a blog.
