This video is supposed to be devastating. Devastating! Sure, ok — if by “devastating” you meant “Laugh OL ridiculous.”
You laughed. Admit it. Either that or you sat there with your jaw agape before you quit watching around the one minute mark because what the crap was that?
If there’s one thing that drives me up a fucking wall, it’s this asinine notion that women are asking that the government hand out free birth control. I mean, what is that? Why? Why do these people continue to believe shit that simply isn’t true? (That’s a rhetorical question.)
All women want is to have contraception coverage in health insurance plans that they are already paying into. Why is that so hard to understand? Wingnuts are convinced that Obama is going to force woman to take birth control pills and pass the cost of those pills on to innocent couples who live and die by the rhythm method.
ABL aka Angry Black Lady aka Imani Gandy is a recovering attorney with a burning love of fire and perfectly-constructed sentences. The “anger” portion of her moniker stems not from her displeasure at the hellscape that American politics has become, but rather is a symptom of the pituitary tumor which has been indefinitely detained in her brain since 2006. When she’s not pointing out that people are wrong on the Internet – or writing for Balloon Juice, The Grio, The Team Uterati Wiki Project, or RH Reality Check -- she likes long sits on the beach. Also, she thinks gravity is a real downer. You can follow her on Twitter at @AngryBlackLady.
