The #DrHobbyLobby Hashtag Captures The 13 Best Tweets About SCOTUS’ Latest Ruling

By  | 

Yesterday, the Supreme Court ruled that women's rights don't matter…at least, that's how I perceived it when the court voted a 5-4 in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood v. Burwell, declaring the Affordable Care Act violates the religious freedom of certain employers.

In simpler terms? For-profit employers with religious objections, or corporations controlled by religious families can refuse to pay for contraceptive coverage under Obamacare.

This means that regardless of what religion a woman is, five men have determined her future access to personal reproductive health. And the company in question, Hobby Lobby, is a chain of arts and crafts stores…not exactly a company you'd think would be calling the shorts on birth control.

This decision is bananas, bullsh*t, bonkers…or as the dissent said, “a decision of startling breadth.”

So startling, in fact, that #DrHobbyLobby began trending on Twitter.

And we found the best, funniest and darkest Tweets discussing—or just point blank making fun—of the matter.

This basically sums it up (despite the fact there's no #DrHobbyLobby hashtag).  Five men with penises–who have never had to shamefully buy the morning after pill, or worry about “being late”—are calling the shots on this matter. Barf.

Sad, but true.  

If you don't have a seasonal wreath, we think a stale bagel or one of those plastic Poland Spring water bottle tops could suffice (it's the same shape, right?). One more question: When it gets lodged up there (you know where), will the company pay to get it out, or will we have to go to directly to the ER? Trying to plan ahead, here.

This birth control option is how MTV's Teen Mom got started.

Ugh, this makes me cringe. But more importantly, can it be done? I'm asking for a friend.  


If companies don't have to pay for birth control because of their religion, the answer to all our problems must be in the bible…right? Well, according to @Clarknt67 and @goodasyou, not so much. Hey, Jesus…could you help us out a little, here?

Ha! More Jesus humor. So. On. Point.


If you can't beat 'em (or knock sense into 'em), make fun of 'em on Twitter.

Only if your child is a straight little girl. Otherwise, Hobby Lobby will have a whole different problem.

But seriously….we need to know.

And finally, @ourbluerainbow poses a very legit question: WTF should we do now?!
