CBS Comedy *Mom* Is Trading Emmy Campaigning for Activism
By Laura Bradley

As Emmy nominations draw near, one network comedy has made the almost unheard of decision not to campaign—not because it doesn’t stand a chance, but because it can think of something more useful to do with its money. Mom earned two back-to-back supporting actress wins for one of its central stars, Allison Janney—in 2014 and 2015. (She was nominated in 2016, but lost out to Saturday Night Live’s Kate McKinnon.) But this year, rather than throw down cash for yet another campaign for gold statuettes, CBS will donate the budgeted funds to Planned Parenthood.

As the Republicans continue to work toward pushing through their replacement for the Affordable Care Act, Janney and Mom co-creator/executive producer Chuck Lorre have decided to raise awareness around the threats that specifically target Planned Parenthood, Variety reports. (The version of the American Health Care Act that passed in the House includes a provision that would slash funding for the organization.) They’ll appear on CBS This Morning as part of their special Mom campaign, encouraging their fans to donate to the organization. (Vanity Fair has reached out to Janney, her co-star Anna Faris, and Lorre for comment, and will update this post accordingly.)

Although the move to forego campaigning is extremely rare, such decisions could become more mainstream over the next few years. As Variety notes, United Talent Agency canceled its 2017 Oscars party in protest of Donald Trump, choosing instead to donate $250,000 to the A.C.L.U. and the humanitarian organization International Rescue Committee.

I am honestly so angry that we take pro-lifers seriously. Let me ask you

Would you rather women get safe abortions and have foetuses die

Or have both the foetus and the mother die because she was so desperate to get an abortion that she performed one on herself

You can’t ban abortions. You can only ban safe ones

the republicans war on planned parenthood is so fucking ludicrous to me why are they so determined to strip away vital (and affordable!) health care for women it’s genuinely so evil

Here’s What GOP Bill Would (And Wouldn’t) Change For Women’s Health Care - NPR

The republican war on women continues unabated into its 6th decade. When will republican women ever learn? What empathy genes of republican women are mutated.

The Affordable Care Act changed women’s health care in some big ways: It stopped insurance companies from charging women extra, forced insurers to cover maternity care and contraceptives and allowed many women to get those contraceptives (as well as a variety of preventive services, like Pap smears and mammograms) at zero cost.

Now Republicans have the opportunity to repeal that law, also known as Obamacare. But not all will be lost, at least not yet, as not all Obamacare gains will go away.

Mini-Menses Tutorial for all the home-schooled / shame-based sexuality kids:

I’m tired of reading comments from people who don’t know this stuff. 

1.) People who have periods don’t know when their periods will start, when they’ll stop or how long they’ll last,

2.) People who have periods don’t know how old they’ll be when they begin or when they’ll stop for good.  Periods that have stopped “for good” can restart if the person is under stress.

3.)  Periods can last two days one month and two weeks the next. Birth control pills can regulate periods but they don’t always work.

4.)  People who have periods can’t “hold” it. The body is expelling the lining to the uterus. The person has zero control over when the body bleeds and btw it’s  not just blood.  

5.)  It HURTS. The pain is comparable to having a heart attack. Once a month. For five days. For 40 (?) years.  

That’s it. 


6:)  This was meant as an overview. Periods are different for every person who has them. They evolve.  There’s no “normal” there’s just normal for the person having them.
