a society where this is news is pathetic. a society that seriously entertains an ideology that makes this news, is pathetic.
What’s newsworthy is the criminal arrogance of the right’s policies. Aspiring to control other people’s sexuality, their bodies, their most intimate decisions? How idiotic. How repugnant.
What a load of hypocrites you are. Your news reflects the society you live in. And you’re part of it. You’re implicated.
