You know, I like to make sense of things. Like somebody says or does something that seems strange and I like to learn enough about them and history and societal trends and stuff to understand what’s going on.
Today, I have read something so inexplicable that I actually can’t make sense of it. Like, I feel like there is some sense to be made of it, but I can’t do it.
Here it is. In an article talking about the defunding of Planned Parenthood and how it happened, Stacey Campfield says:
“We had to kiss a lot of ugly girls at the prom, but we took the pretty one home,” said Campfield. “As long as we got what I was looking for, which was defunding Planned Parenthood, I’m willing to let it drop.”
Campfield equates a situation where he can’t control women’s healthcare with being forced to kiss ugly girls and a situation in which he can actively harm women by denying them healthcare as being able to take a pretty girl home.
