Just a link...

To an excellent article regarding the CDC's assertion that if you fail to have a Y-chromosome, you're just a walking womb.

Yes, yes, I know that the information has been out there for a bit, but the article is interesting and makes good points.

I almost being to agree with Ken and think that leaving the country would be better than staying, but damn it, I'm an American and proud of it and damned if I'm going to let close-minded conservative assholes relegate me to one. single. bodily. function.

I'm worth considerably more than what my body might (potentially! Except that I've no intention of it ever happening!) produce.

They are doing this all wrong. They shouldn't be worried about the physical health of all fertile women, they should focus on the emotional and psychological health of that subgroup of fertile women who actually plan to have children. Sure having a sick mother is tough on a child and can cause birth defects etc, but having a physically healthy abusive mother is much worse. Just because the mother is eating enough carrots and the baby is born without deformity, does not mean that child's life is going to be desirable.

But, I guess in order for anyone to focus on the emotional and psychological health of a woman, he has to first accept that she's a thinking human being and not a baby machine.
