Meet the Douchebros of the Week: Michigan House members Ben Glardon, Peter Pettalia, and Roger Victory. These three charming specimens of worthless white dudes came to my attention via this tweet:
"@MIHouseGOP members Victory, Pettalia, and Glardon: ‘Don’t say we don’t understand women.’ #mileg"
Aside from the notion of “lol we read women’s magazines hilars” being monumentally insulting, these three have also voted for such disgusting legislation as the Abortion Insurance Opt-Out Act, the bill which forces women on Obamacare to buy separate insurance to cover abortions in case of rape. Seriously. That is a thing. That is now law. Because they voted for it.
Here’s the good news: it’s an election year in Michigan, and we can get these jerks out of office. All three are in competitive races, and they’re all being challenged by women.

I should also mention two particularly wonderful candidates for the Michigan House, my friends Jon Hoadley and Rebecca Thompson. They are both amazing, inspiring people, and it would give me great pleasure to watch them lay the smack down on these fools during the next session of the Michigan legislature. Please consider contributing to their campaigns as well.
Thanks and smooches! xx, ksl
