Open Letter To Mike Huckabee About Birth Control & My Libido

Meet The PressDear Mr. Huckabee,

I find it interesting that you insist you know about my libido.

You see, I am one of the women you addressed when you made your “Uncle Sugar” comment earlier this year. Although I am no longer taking the pill, I once received free birth control from Planned Parenthood – not that it is any of your business. And by the way, that was during the Clinton administration and if you recall, he left office with an economic surplus. In fact, our economy was soaring. So clearly, women who received free birth control pills didn’t destroy the economy. Another fact, there is proof that it BENEFITS the economy

But back to your fixation with women’s libidos and the other propaganda you dumped into the American conversation.

What do you know or care about my sex drive? Do you have proof that it’s out of control and if it is, how does that concern you? I don’t want to know ANYTHING about your sex life. So please, never, ever share that information. Ever.


Your concern with the frequency in which women have sex is disturbing and it’s not your business. Your attempt to shame women by suggesting our libidos are out of control is foolish and detrimental to the success of your party. Congratulations on sinking to a new low with term “Uncle Sugar.” Rush Limbaugh is surely proud of you and jealous that he didn’t think of it first.  Birth control is a way to PREVENT UNWANTED PREGNANCIES. And by doing so, we cut down on abortion. That’s a GOOD THING!

Huckabee, you are an older man. You come from a different generation, and although you are clearly unable to accept those who are different from you, you are not paying attention to REALITY. In fact, your asinine comments make me want to run out and have a boatload of sex just to spite you. Even though it goes against my nature, I want to have crazy, wild sex and record it and send it to you with a big red bow. I won’t, of course, but your demeaning statements about women REALLY MAKE ME WANT TO! And when I say I won’t, I mean I just won’t record it for you.

And in regard to your propaganda that there is no War On Women and the GOP is fighting a war FOR women – hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. And LOL! Dude!!!!! Are you on crack???? How would you like your penis probed? I believe you might have a different take on the situation if you get probed when you ask the doctor for your Viagra prescription.


Let me break it down for you. Your statement about women’s libidos and Uncle Sugar are TOTALLY fighting words and they are just plain WRONG!

Republican women also take birth control. Republican women also get free birth control from Planned Parenthood. Women make up 51 percent of the electorate. Those coveted votes from women in the middle who are up for grabs, they take birth control. So when you make insulting comments and imply that we are out of control sex freaks, you are basically calling women sluts and whores. You degrade and demean us. You insult us. And then we just want to punch you in the face. But we won’t.

What we WILL do is win the war in the voting booth. You and your ilk insist on painting women as hussies and sluts and baby-killing whores and somehow you – as a party – have convinced yourselves that by doing so, you’ll win, despite the fact you have been CREAMED (and not in the good way) in the last two elections. You know, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

It really boggles my mind. There are other issues that your party could focus on. I won’t help you out there, but it appears all you want to do is paint women as less than what a man is, and scream about Benghazi every time someone proves you wrong – about anything. It’s just the stupidest possible path to Loserville and I cannot understand why you don’t see that.

I am a liberal lefty feminist, so keep it up. You make my job so much easier. You are digging your sexist graves and in the end, it will all shake out. Because you’re old. Long after you are worm food, women will continue to enjoy sex, enjoy the ability to plan our families and be in control of our destinies. And FYI – men like to plan their families too.  Your puritanical ideals will eventually die off.

More people of color will procreate with white people and eventually, the white population will be a minority and there is NOTHING you can do to stop it.

We are a nation that is liberal on social issues and women get really, really irritated when old men like you think you have a clue about our libidos.

So stick that in your puritanical pipe and take a nice long drag…..I’ll worry about my own libido and maybe I’ll call Mark Ruffalo. ;)

Sincerely,

Kimberley A. Johnson
