Memes, Control, and Access: State of Washington Suing Trump Over New Birth Control Rules @balleralert State of Washington Suing Trump Over New Birth Control Rules-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to reports, Washington State is said to be suing Trump after his decision to allow employers to claim religious or moral objections to providing free birth control to women. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ State Attorney General Bob Ferguson, who previously filed a successful lawsuit against Trump’s initial travel ban, announced the newest lawsuit Monday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “President Trump’s contraception rules are unfair, unlawful, and unconstitutional,” Ferguson said. “I refuse to let President Trump disregard our laws and our constitution in an effort to deny women access to contraception.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Trump’s policy is designed to repeal pieces of the health care law that former President BarackObama implemented. One of those being that majority of companies would cover birth control as preventive care for women, at no additional cost. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Ferguson says the administration’s actions is in violation of multiple amendments. It violates the First amendment which requires individuals to bear the burden of religions to which they don’t belong, and the equal protection of the Fifth Amendment.

Anaconda, Bad, and Feminism: Early Feminists: Oh hey, we see that you can vote. We would like to vote also. I mean, since most of those laws effect us too and all Me YOU JUST WANT SUPERIORITY OVER MEN! Mid-century Feminists: Hey, that whole thing about how you can have careers and earn a living wage outside the home? Yes that sounds nice, we'd 1ike the option to do that as well. Men: YOU WANT A MATRIARCHY, THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT! Late 20th century Feminists: Hey we would like to make our own choices about ou reproductive health, just like you've always had. Men YOU ARE TRYING TO TAKE MEN'S RIGHTS AWAY! Modern-day feminists: Hey, if you could you stop sexually assaulting/harassing us and then blaming us for it, that'd be pretty great. Men: THIS IS MISANDRY, MISANDRY I SAY! FEMINISTS HAVE GONE TOO FAR! Feminists: Um Men: THE END OF MEN IS NIGH MALE OPPRESSION IS REAL! THE MATRIARCHAL AGE IS UPON US! Repost from @galaxyfeminism · and yes obviously *not all men* are like this, this is talking about those who are & how the feminist movement has continuously been met with opposition and hate. That's why it is frustrating when people now say "I support early feminist movements but I hate what feminism is now." That means "when it was explicitly stated in the law that women had fewer rights, that was bad, but now that women can vote and own land they just need to stop complaining about other sexist things because some women in other countries can't even vote!!!1!" Saying you have gender equality because women in your country have more rights than women in other countries is like saying you did well on the test because you got a 50% but some people got a 30% so it's okay. Strive for 100%. Let's hold ourselves to a higher standard than defining equality as "it's not explicitly stated that you don't have certain rights (*except in certain cases where local laws do restrict access to birth control-bodily autonomy or try to ban trans people from bathrooms or try to restrict rights of LGTBQ+ people)." Equality under the law doesn't necessarily result in actual equal treatment, whether you're looking at discrimination based on race, religion, gender, class, sexuality, etc. This is especially noticeable regarding race and the treatment of black people in the US, as when slavery became illegal the prison system became an institution that essentially legalized slavery (if you are not familiar with this, watch "13th" or Google "why the us prison system is legalized slavery"). And just because something is legal doesn't mean it's ethical, let's not pretend the government is the epitome of morality 🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃
