Sabotaging birth control methods (be it condoms, pills, the patch, the ring, what have you) is nothing to fucking joke about. Especially when it happens every. single. day. Seriously. Google "reproductive coercion" sometime.

I had someone make this "joke" to me the other day. If I hadn't been at work and able to safely walk away, I would have a broken hand right now. I take my bodily autonomy very seriously. Do NOT fuck with me on this. You will lose.

Not to mention that I need hormonal birth control for medical reasons. Medical. Reasons. As in I need to take these pills to function. And you think my partner and I will "have cute children", so you're willing to find where I live and "switch my pills for sugar tablets"? You're already on my shit list for other wirechewing comments; way to dig yourself even deeper.

Don't disrespect me and my body with your snide little "jokes". Because they are not fucking funny.

And if I see anyone on my lists make these jokes? You're gone.

This is the woman who posted this. Some people require consequences to their hatefulness to keep their misogyny in check. With luck, she'll learn.

Just in case she bahleets, you can find a cap here.

And yes, sometimes, transmisogyny needs to be met with a public calling out.

ETA: The post is F-locked now, but membership is open. Here's a SS for your viewing pleasure.

ETA 2: Aww, look at that half-hearted, friends-locked apology. If she were really sorry, the post wouldn't be F-Locked. SS to follow.

ETA 2a: SS of the "apology"

ETA 3: Comments as of 5 Oct 2009 (Warning: Huge fucking image (1,195 x 22,702), may take a while to load. Oh.. and ignore the ever changing scroll bar =P)

ETA 4: Edited post to fix "harassment" issues.

Digital TV hot line gets 700,000 calls over switch

So America switched to DTV yesterday. How on earth were people NOT PREPARED FOR THIS?! We were first told that it would be happening in February 2009, but television providers appealed for more time. Feb-u-fucking-rary, people.

Stupidity never ceases to amaze me.
