In the Bible belt U.S. state of Oklahoma, there’s a mule dung-kicking country boy sitting on a seat in the state legislature named Justin Humphrey (pictured).
Humphrey, an elected representative of the Oklahoma state house is causing quite a fracas with this here new bill he’s proposing. Now mind you, yokels like Humphrey get in office because a great big portion of the voting populace is uninformed and they’re not paying too much attention to what’s going on in politics.
Hell, it’s hard enough for most of them to pay the bills, right? Well, anyway, back on the subject of this here bill proposed by the hillbilly boy on the hill with a Stetson hat. To many chauvinist-minded, conservative-thinking, and Bible-thumping politicians like Humphrey, women apparently are not entitled to have a say in just about anything.
Including when it comes to their own bodies! Billy Boy Humphrey is no exception and he stands fully behind this new bill of his, which if signed into law, will require women to get written consent from their male $exual partner prior to getting an abortion. Check out what this ham hock and biscuit-eating boy Humphrey Dumpty had to say:
“I understand that they feel like that is their body. I feel like it is a separate — what I call them is, is you’re a ‘host.’ And you know when you enter into a relationship you’re going to be that host and so, you know, if you pre-know that then take all precautions and don’t get pregnant…So that’s where I’m at. I’m like, hey, your body is your body and be responsible with it. But after you’re irresponsible then don’t claim, well, I can just go and do this with another body, when you’re the host and you invited that in.” (The Intercept)
Lunacy like the kind Billy Boy Humphrey is exercising is exactly why women and minorities need to vote more in local elections. You can’t get surprised when them yokels get elected on the hill and have your hide.
