Anti-Abortion Measures Hurt All Women

I've always been pro-choice. Every woman should have the right to choose what happens to her body. You may not like the idea of abortion, but after viewing this video you'll understand why anti-abortion laws are anti-women. It's not about religion or any of that, anti-abortion measures give fetuses rights above women, and that is dangerous for all women, not just those considering abortion.

The only person who reads this is a fierce Obama supporter, but I still feel the need to steal this quote from a feministing shirt: A woman candidate is not the same thing as a woman's candidate. Sarah Palin does not speak for me.

So, today I bashed my knee against the corner of this plastic tub thing at work. I hit it dead center about an inch and a half below my patella, which is apparently the most painful place to hit your knee. I didn't even get a cool bruise from it. All I have is a tiny little red bump, roughly the size of a pencil erasure, and it hurts like fuck. This happened about 11:30am and it still hurts when I use the stairs or squat down. Basically, it hurts whenever I bend it while I have weight on it. Which is a vast improvement from this afternoon, when it hurt. Period. I had to avoid putting weight on my right leg to give my knee some time to recoup. Unfortunately, my job doesn't really give me a lot of sitting around time, so after 5:30 hours with all my weight on my left leg, my left ankle began to HURT. So, for a good part of the day, I had 0 fully functioning legs. Let's just say it's a good thing I'm not a racehorse, or I would have been sent to that big Glue Factory in the Sky.

Here's a visual aid of my pain:

I want Sarah Haskins to be my new best friend

Over on Sara's Wedding Blog I posted a video about awful wedding shows.

Found all these on feministing.

It was Art

Tonight on The Daily Show, right towards the end of Jon Stewart's interview with Tim Robbins, Jon made a comment that he wanted dumber people in the Navy Seals. As anyone who has watched The Daily Show knows, right after the interview they cut to a commercial break. And the very first commercial shown after Jon Stewart says there should be dumber people in the Navy Seals? A Navy recruitment commercial. It was, for lack of a better word, art.

And of course, I can't call something art without thinking of this from The Soup:
