Feminist: Sex Will Be Less Fun During a Trump Administration

Puerile. They only have three things they can say. Like how PETA only has two moves: Graphically violent imagery and nudity.

These idiots can only say Serious You Guys The Patriarchy N Stuff, Men Just Want To Fill Women With Babies, and Sex Will Be Better With Us (Almost Certainly Frigid) Gals If You Just Do What We Saaaay.

Yeah I think most guys have run into the "sex will be better/more frequent if you do x" play. Not true.

Jill Filipovic is a journalist based in New York and Nairobi and the author of the forthcoming book, "The H-Spot: The Feminist Pursuit of Happiness." Follow her on Twitter. The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of the author.

Note that every feminist book makes some reference to sex, breasts, or the vagina.

Because they totally want you to notice their minds, yo.

Under a Donald Trump presidency, sex is about to get a lot less fun.

That's because Trump has tapped Tom Price, an anti-abortion and anti-contraception congressman from Georgia, as his director of Health and Human Services. Price is an opponent of the Affordable Care Act and a proponent of defunding Planned Parenthood, an organization that serves more than 2.5 million patients, many of them low-income, every year.

Birth control and STI testing and treatment make up the majority of services Planned Parenthood provides, and federal funds are already blocked from paying for abortion. Federal funding mostly goes to Planned Parenthood in the form of Medicaid dollars, which are set aside to provide health care for poor Americans, and that's who these funding cuts will largely affect.

With Price at the helm of HHS, even women who don't rely on Planned Parenthood for health care will have a harder time getting contraception. According to Price, "there is not one" woman who has been left behind by unaffordable birth control costs, and so his proposed gutting of the ACA would pull the provision that fully covers contraception.

Etc., etc., etc. Notice that the article is just sort of doing the standard feminist whining about birth control costs. It's not about sex, whether "fun" or otherwise.

Yet that was the title slapped on it -- either the writer offered this title, or an editor (editrix?) at CNN did.

Either way, someone at CNN sexualized this poor thing for clicks.

Boo, sexualization!
