Canadian Anti-Abortionists Are Funny

Canadians are truly special. And Canadian anti-choicers are even more special than that. I don’t know if the goal of this anti-abortion group was to make abortion funny but this billboard made me roar in laughter:

As angry as these woman-haters usually make me, I can’t summon any anger when I look at this billboard. This is just too funny. I’m not even going to analyze all of the implications of the toy that was chosen to transmit the idea. This billboard does not need to be subverted. It achieves that task on its own.

I found this billboard here.

  2. I’m glad I’m not the only one who finds Canadian anti-choicers to be almost cartoonish in their ridiculousness. That’s the main thing I’ve noticed since moving here, Canadian anti-choicers seem almost like parodies of the movement with their rhetoric and tactics. It’s kind of nice compared to what I used to deal with in the seriously anti-choice part of the US I lived in, which posed an actual, credible threat to reproductive freedom.

    1. The good news – if I can call it that – is that wars are not won any more by the preponderance of numbers and the cultures that establish their hegemony are not the most numerous ones.
