Trump’s Department of Health and Human Services announced on Friday that they would be easing previous rules requiring employers to cover birth control in their employee insurance plans. Unsurprisingly, the “feminist” set lost their ever-loving minds. Not one seems to have any clue as to the difference between not paying for something and banning something.
Enjoy the best of the twitter meltdowns.
Wait…does John Fugelsang think birth control is illegal now?
SOMEone is excited about their 280 characters.
Birth control is not health care alone. It's the right of women to control their bodies, plan their families, chart their futures. For many women, it is prohibitively expensive to access the best method for them. It is beyond belief that this is still up for debate. #HandsOffMyBC

Do you want to tell them they’re allowed to buy their own birth control or shop for a plan that covers it? Or should I?
PP was founded on the idea women should control their own bodies. 100 yrs later, we're still fighting for that. We won't stop. #HandsOffMyBC

Duh…babies come from surrogates and beleaguered African nations that will take the money of any rich, famous white woman who doesn’t want to get fat. Everyone knows this.
GOP approves of Viagra, but pulls birth control coverage. Further proof Republicans don’t actually know where babies come from #HandsOffMyBC

I…I don’t think that it is…unless you have to wait 10 days and undergo a background check for your condoms.
Why is birth control more regulated than weapons? #HandsOffMyBC

Nothing is more dignifying than forcing someone else to pay for your sexy-time pills.
We all deserve to have the freedom to live and plan our lives with dignity. #HandsOffMyBC

Look at this guy! You go, playa!!!!!
I am a man, but I use women's birth control. I don't have to pay for it, or take the pills, but I use it all the same. #HandsOffMyBC

Remember when President Trump pledged to force everyone with endometriosis into electroshock therapy? #ScaryTimes
#handsoffmyBC As a woman living with endometriosis I am terrified of my future, because of the current administration.

Well, this sounds like a logical progression.

Honestly I could post another 100 tweets, there’s just such comedy gold on this hashtag right now. But let’s not let the fragile one percenters have the last say. Let’s look at some of the best responses of the day.
I'm very pro birth control (more should be on it!) but forcing nuns to pay for it? Nah. #handsoffmyBC

If you can't afford your sex life, that's a pretty good sign that you shouldn't have a sex life
