As we all know, some folks are offended by the sight of a lady breastfeeding her infant. Why not rub it in their faces with this lovely baby hat?

“Every Sperm is sacred” amendment

Filed under: politics,reproductive rights — Jender @ 4:47 pm

I’m loving this strategy.

After Oklahoma conservatives introduced a “personhood” bill to the state Senate on Monday, Sen. Constance Johnson decided to follow in Virginia Senator Janet Howell’s footsteps and attach an amendment in protest, which would add this language to the bill:

However, any action in which a man ejaculates or otherwise deposits semen anywhere but in a woman’s vagina shall be interpreted and construed as an action against an unborn child.

Thanks, L!

 

Social Philosophy Conference

Filed under: Uncategorized — redeyedtreefrog @ 12:46 am

This is a terrific conference for women and the regular members of the group include many feminist philosophers. The program usually has lots of feminist content. If this is your field, I strongly recommend submitting something.
