Just when you thought feminists couldn’t get any more insular, myopic and just plain silly; pills and gripes are the new stars and stripes.
On the eve of Veterans’ Day, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and senator’s wife Connie Schultz tweeted a “Flag of Reproductive Freedom” to her 11,000 followers. In place of the stars signifying the 50 states, the flag boasted 28 buttons representing a month of birth control pills. NARAL also tweeted the “art.”
“Love this!” NARAL Pro-Choice America gushed in a retweet of the flag.
Schultz’s tweet came after a recent column she wrote in response to the midterm elections. In it, she detailed the background of the flag, “a favorite piece of artwork that hangs in a prominent place in our home.” Well, there’s no accounting for taste.
