WARNING: Strong language alert
If the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby ruling today demonstrates anything, it is that the United States still abides by its Constitution and by lawful amendments made thereto. According to the First Amendment:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Today’s decision — which holds that businesses, like individuals, can hold religious views under federal law — pays homage to the first clause of the above amendment.
This post pays homage to the second clause by acknowledging that feminist Jessica Valenti is entitled to hold and give utterance to her palpable disappointment at the high court’s ruling, which she does today at Twitter:
Maybe women should organize a safe-sex f*ck-in at every Hobby Lobby across the country. In the glitter aisle. JUST A THOUGHT.

As a rule this site does not publish obscenity, but there is no way to redact Valenti’s tweet so as to edit out the four-letter word she unfortunately chose to use. If Valenti had a shred of sense, she’d delete her entire ridiculous tweet.
