UPDATE: BREAKING NEWS!!
Via @LbrlOkie77 on Twitter, an Oklahoma county judge struck down as unconstitutional the Oklahoma State-Sanctioned Rape aka Transvaginal Probe Law. It had been blocked temporarily, and now it’s permanently gone. Another win for #TeamUterati!
END OF UPDATE
We’re winning the fight against the War on Women™
Remember when I wrote about the two small victories in the fight against the War on Women™, one of them concerning the Right to Shame Employees as Sluts and Refuse to Pay for Their Contraception Bill in Arizona? I said that even though Arizona Rep. Debbie Lesko’s (R-Traitortoallwomenville) new version of the bill was still invasive and odious, the fact that she was rewriting it at all because of the national outcry over it was a small win for us.
I wrote that post assuming that the bill would pass, because, you know, it’s Arizona where it seemed as if no law is too punishing of women, LGBTQ, and undocumented workers. This bill should have sailed right through the legislature, only to be signed into law by Governor Jan Brewer (R-Crazybittertown).
Let me say that again. The slut-shaming, protect-our-religious-freedoms, give-all-the-power-to-the-employers bill didn’t pass in Arizona.
