dianerevoluta: Yesterday, somewhere between 2000-5000 people marched in Wellington against the government’s plans to partially sell state assets. This followed a similar sized march in Auckland last weekend and a week-long hikoi starting in Cape Reinga. After last year’s record low voter turn out, it would…

Woman: Can I have birth control?
Woman: I got pregnant because I didn't have birth control and I don't want the fetus. Can I have an abortion?
Woman: I gave birth to my child but since I wasn't expecting it, I can't afford daycare. Can I have help paying for it?
Woman: Well, why can't I have birth control?
Government: Because. Sex isn't for recreation.
Woman: It can help regulate my period and benefit me in other ways.
Government: Too bad.
Man: For no reason other than for recreational sex, may I have birth control?
Government: Do you have a penis?
Man: YES, YES I DO!!
Government: WELL HOWDY, VALID CITIZEN. You can buy condoms by the dozens. Here, here's a pack of special condom for "His Pleasure." Oooh, these come in different colours and flavours. Here, try these. They have ribs on them. And this one glows in the dark!! LOL OMG DICK LIGHTSABER!!
Government: But seriously, you're a man. You can do what ever you want.
Government: Shut up, you sinning, freeloading hussy.

dianerevoluta: My rewrite of Paul Holmes’ article entitled ‘Waitangi Day a complete waste: It’s time to cancel our repugnant national holiday’, featured on the New Zealand Hearld website, 11th February 2012.

Mr “Welcome to the real world”. Sexism happens. Always has, always will. Might as well suck it up and deal with it. Try to change society? What are you, mad? I don’t like it either, sunshine, but just be good and don’t make a fuss. Mr “Oh my god calm down it was a joke”. Everyone knows if…

saynathespiffy: daskannnichtsein: Whenever Anti-Choicers say that having sex means you agree to pregnancy or that you shouldn’t have sex unless you’re ready to get pregnant… They become the literal epitome of anti-choice. And I just sorta side-eye and go “how many of you fuckers…

coleytangerina: Trigger warning for misogyny, sexual violence, homophobia and transphobic slurs. Firstly, I just want to acknowledge that there have been many amazing blogs, both pre and post-election about the bigoted politics of John Banks and other politicians in Aotearoa. It’s amazing to share…

lavender-labia: fuckyeahchoice: Well, first we have to touch on how ‘partial-birth abortion’ is just a make believe scare tactic term anti-choicers use when they mean ‘Intact dilation and extraction’ (IDX) and also that these are already a teeny tiny number (.17% in 2000, Guttmacher) of abortions in the…
Fuck you, Hell Pizza
picklemethis: I stopped giving Hells my business after the “devil girl deep throating a churro” poster campaign. Good to know they’re continually reaffirming the idea they’re a pack of ignorant, hate-filled, douchebro, bigoted assholes. No, Hell, it’s not a joke. No, Hell, I won’t lighten up.
