Tina Fey is a funny lady. We know this. She is pretty smart too. We also know this. But her ability to combine her wits and humor with politics is a very special skill. While giving a speech at the Center for Reproductive Rights Inaugural Gala last night she was able to point out the utter ridiculousness of the recent debates about reproductive rights. The fact that debates about women’s bodies have been argued by men exclusively does not go amiss at Gurl.com
Tina says, “I wish we could have an honest and respectful dialogue about these complicated issues but it seems like we can’t right now. And if I have to listen to one more gray-faced man with a two-dollar haircut explain to me what rape is, I’m gonna lose my mind.” Amen. I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again, no matter how you feel about reproductive rights, you should be concerned that right now you DON’T have a say in the matter.
This is your body so you should be heard not some old dude who cannot fathom what it’s like to be a woman let alone a teenage girl.
How do you feel about men speaking on your behalf? Let us know in the comments!
