Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian ripped Republicans on Tuesday for their overreaction to Guardian columnist Jessica Valenti’s online joke about a “f*ck-in” protest at Hobby Lobby stores.
“Who wants to be in a party that’s anti f*ck-ins?” Uygur asked sarcastically. “I’m pro f*ck-in. If you can do it, have at it, hoss. That sounds like fun. See, now you can go ahead and get angry at me.”
Kasparian explained that conservatives began hurling insults at Valenti following her post about organizing a “safe-sex f*ck-in” at the stores to protest the Supreme Court ruling allowing the company to opt out of having to pay for some types of reproductive health products from its employees.
Maybe women should organize a safe-sex fuck-in at every Hobby Lobby across the country. In the glitter aisle. JUST A THOUGHT.# p #4_10 # ad skipped = true #

In response, Kasparian said, detractors went from assuming Valenti was making the suggestion with a straight face to condemning her for joking about the issue. She also said that some conservative women’s hypocritically take “anti-sex” stances in public while portraying liberal women as being sex-crazed.
“The notion that all liberals are going around having random casual sex with everyone is absolutely ridiculous,” Kasparian argued. “But that’s the way that they paint the picture. That’s the way that they make liberal women look like, and I know so many conservative women that are much more liberal in their sex lives than liberal women are.”
