|Brave freedom-fighters attacking the Death Star|
We men thought we had it good, didn't we? Sure, Republicans were waging a war on women, but no one was targeting men, right? Oh, I'm sorry to tell you that the world has just become really scary.
From BuzzFeed, it's the war on men:
Oklahoma state senator Constance Johnson introduced an amendment to that state's Personhood bill, SB 1433, that would essentially outlaw masturbation for men. Johnson's amendment proposed that the legislation include a provision that men ejaculating anywhere outside a woman's vagina be considered "an action against an unborn child."
Johnson wrote about the amendment in the Guardian:
My action to amend the so-called "Personhood" bill – SB 1433, introduced by Senator Brian Crain (Republican, Tulsa) – represents the culmination of my and many other Oklahomans' frustration regarding the ridiculousness of our reproductive policy initiatives in Oklahoma. I have received overwhelmingly positive responses from men and women in Oklahoma – and worldwide. The Personhood bill would potentially allow governmental intrusion into families' personal lives by policing what happens to a woman's eggs without any similar thought to what happens to a man's sperm.
It's not just Oklahoma, either. That's just the first example in this article. Rosie Gray - clearly, BuzzFeed discriminated against men by hiring a woman to write this, huh? - describes six similar pieces of legislation in America.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
