Arizona Heaven!

A proposed new law in Arizona would give employers the power to request that women being prescribed birth control pills provide proof that they're using it for non-sexual reasons. And because Arizona's an at-will employment state, that means that bosses critical of their female employees' sex lives could fire them as a result. If we could harness the power of the crappy ideas coming out of the state of Arizona, we could probably power a rocket ship to the moon, where there are no Mexicans or fertile wombs and everyone can be free to be as mean a cranky asshole as they want at all times! Arizona Heaven!

This from an article at jezebal.com entitled "Law Will Allow Employers to Fire Women for Using Whore Pills."

Would you good people in Arizona—I know for a fact that there are at least a few—please do something about your out-of-control nutcase right-wing extremist politicians?

As it appears the state WOULD allow funding for "non-sexual" uses for birth control pills, someone is missing an amazing opportunity to develop new marketing ideas for "non-sexual" uses for birth control pills. Here are some suggestions for legitimate non-sexual uses for birth control pills:

(1)Jewelry (those colorful, multi-shaped tabs would make cute necklaces and earrings)
(2)Cupcake sprinkles and
cake decorations
(3)Add mint flavoring and market them as breath mints
(4)add fiber...that's big these days
(5)drill tiny holes in them and make them into buttons
(6)use them as filler for shaker-type instruments like maracas...

I mean come on, people...we put a man on the moon (though perhaps those in Arizona don't believe that really happened), so we can find a way to creatively rip off the Arizona legislature and the insurance companies that have managed to rip us off for so many years. I look forward to YOUR creative "non-sexual" uses for birth control pills... even if you're from Arizona.
