Thought experiment: if Dick Cheney accidentally got pregnant

22 Jan

On this, the 38th anniversary of Roe V. Wade, take a moment to indulge in some sci-fi thought-experiment comedy: imagine, if you will, a world where men stand a chance of becoming pregnant from sexual intercourse statistically equal to that of women.

You can have your own fun with that.

Instead of a “war to protect the unborn” or whatever maniac violent, militant thing the right-wing uses as a pretext for self-righteousness these days, it would just be a “war on the unborn” narrated by a serious, somber Dick Cheney lecturing the world on the “difficult decisions” that have to be made to protect ourselves (read: kill) from “unwanted visitors” threatening to take away our uninterrupted teevee time and cost us money.
