Storify is shutting down in May and has informed users that we have to migrate our content elsewhere if we wish to save it. This is one of my old threads.



@Froborr: @brandyseago @HelloPoodle @anamardoll There is no polite way to strip someone of their rights or threaten their life.

@andreagrimes: Sen Nichols: "I don't think alternatives to abortion are related to #SB5." And there you have a perf. example of what's wrong with the GOP.

@JillBidenVeep: There's no "Texas" in vagina. #StandWithWendy

@TUSK81: Remember the last time a man had to filibuster for ten hrs in order to keep the gov't out of his genitals? Neither do I. #StandWithWendy

@Allison_Peacock: Modern life: I can watch filibuster on a tiny TV in my hand while I poop but I can't decide what to do with my own uterus (via @evinschmevin)

@maureenjohnson: I thought I was busy today, but then I realized that one woman was standing up in Texas and holding the line for all of us. #standwithwendy

@ClinicEscort: I wouldn't yield either. You're saying I MUST talk for 13 hrs to save the human rights of ~13 million people? OK! You're gonna HEAR ME TALK.

@alisonrose711: BAHAHAHA #sb5 #standwithwendy RT ‏@APBBlue "I AM NO MAN." Then Wendy Davis drives a sword through the neck of the Witch King Perry.

@studentactivism: 70% of my timeline is #StandWithWendy right now. Seventy percent of my timeline is never anything.

@amaditalks: The impact of the bill GIVEN THE CURRENT STATE OF LAW IS AS FUCKING GERMANE AS ANYTHING CAN BE. This is BULLSHIT. #sb5

@eplerjc: Remember, the filibuster is a core part of American democra-WHOA WHO LET SOMEONE USE IT TO SUPPORT WOMEN'S RIGHTS. #standwithwendy

@erintothemax: Men silencing a woman to exercise control over all women. This is a pivotal moment in women's history. #standwithwendy

@dianagram: So, it turns out, if its a LEGITIMATE filibuster ... a man has a way of shutting it down. #sb5 #standwithwendy

@sweetmachineSP: This is the most excited I have ever been about parliamentary procedure. #StandWithWendy

@Mowgli3: boy good thing national media didn't cover this event that over 100,000 people are watching in the middle of the night

@peg_foodpusher: Did you ever think that at 10:45pm on a weeknight you would be watching a soundless live feed of the Texas Senate?

@Femalekyle: If you say “Wendy Davis” three times in a mirror she appears and gives you tools to dismantle the patriarchy.

@RobDenBleyker: Look at all these old men in TX literally angry that they might not be able to force women they’ve never met to have babies they don’t want.

@Shakestweetz: Tweeting with @AnaMardoll in Texas. Ana says (which I am sharing with permission): "Davis is still standing JUST IN CASE."

@Shakestweetz: "When they first shut her down, there was all this confused noise from the previously silent protestors." - @AnaMardoll

@Shakestweetz: "And just as it died down, on voice rang out crystal clear, yelling BULLSHIT." - @AnaMardoll

@Shakestweetz: "And then they started chanting LET HER SPEAK in unison." - @AnaMardoll

@EireannDolan: I can't stop laughing this Wendy Davis Wikipedia page edit #standwithwendy

@graceishuman: "This has been if not the most scrutinized filibuster, one of the most scrutinized filibuster in the history of the state" - Sen Watson #sb5

@sweetmachineSP: Notice that Mr Mansplaining President is not cutting off this suspiciously male-looking Senator #StandWithWendy

@albinwonderland: today I learned that american politics are kind of like episodes of survivor

@clementine_ford: And now the excellent Senator @KirkPWatson seems to be filbustering the filibuster by discussing all the things considered non-germane.

@bookoisseur: "A very scruitinized filibuster" is translation for "THE INTERNET HAS FOUND US, FOOLS!" #StandwithWendy

@mistyclifton: Just a reminder: @WendyDavisTexas is still on her feet. #hero #sb5

@jayfhicks: CNN is discussing blueberry muffins and scones. Not joke.

@elonjames: How the FUCK are we watching, on the edge of our seats, dudes try to control women's bodies? This is actually sick. #SB5 #standwithwendy

@texasdemocrats: "At what point does a female senator have to raise her hand and her voice to be heard over her male colleagues in the chamber" #SB5...

@alyssaharad: GALLERY STANDING. GALLERY DOES NOT YIELD. #sb5 #txlege

@pummelwell: ...it has to take at least thirteen minutes to clear a riot, right? @AnaMardoll

@dansolomon: "If we could have order in the chamber so the members could properly cast the vote." Good luck with that one, buddy.

@alisonrose711: Holy shit this is fucking amazing. #sb5

@worriersmusic: MAY YOU NEVER GET ORDER IN THE CHAMBER. #sb5

@studentactivism: "If I can have order, we will suspend the roll call vote." WT Actual F? #StandWithWendy

@KailiJoy: Don't mess with Texas vaginas.

@theevocater: on the other hand how awful is it that this is what its come to. people screaming in the senate chamber to stop a bill passing.

@gesisson: If @WendyDavisTexas can talk for 11+ hours, you bet #feministarmy will make noise for 11+ minutes. #txlege #SB5

@zunguzungu: You may not recognize the gallery, sir, but the gallery has recognized you.

@CherylMorgan: Have woken up to find my Twitter stream furiously discussing parliamentary procedure. Awesome. @KevinStandlee

@LaughingStoic: the people of texas are literally screaming so loud that their senate cannot conduct a vote. insane.

@natematias: The audience is DDOSing the Texas state senate #standwithwendy

@irin: RT @dceiver: Texas has declared a cheerocracy.

@Shakestweetz: PRO-CHOICE TEXAS IS MAKING NOISE.

@alisonrose711: USE YOUR BRAS AS SLINGSHOTS TO HIT THEM WITH COLD PIZZA SLICES #sb5

@brittanieshey: Ha ha. RT @kylejack: The female bodies in the gallery have a way of shutting that whole thing down. #sb5

@dresdencodak: When even the audience and the floor are filibustering your vote, maybe you're on the wrong side of history. #StandWithWendy

@ameliashowalter: Ever wonder why women get so angry about this stuff? Because sometimes we literally have to scream to be heard. #standwithwendy

@kristinrawls: "If I could have some order..." And everyone got louder. TEXAS. TEXAS. TEXAS. WENDY. WENDY. WENDY.

@TexasTribune: They are voting on #SB5 after the midnight deadline at the lectern.

@Shakestweetz: It's amazing how a bunch of jerkbags who spent the day obsessed with the minutiae of parliamentary procedure now don't care about the rules.

@beardedstoner: I was led to understand I could go to sleep at midnight. #SB5

@cristinterrill: IF ONLY THERE WAS A NEWS ORGANIZATION THAT COULD TELL US WHAT'S HAPPENING.

@gargreguan: @mazzie If this shit was happening in some other country, we'd send in the UN.

@red3blog: BREAKING: TX Senate counts on the acquiescence of the media in pretending it passed #sb5 when it obviously didn't.

@Rosscott: AP and CBS calling it passed. Twitter is calling it bullshit. CNN calling muffins fattening.

@rare_basement: THIS SHIT HAPPENS TO WOMEN EVERY DAY. "JUMP THROUGH THESE IMPOSSIBLE HOOPS TO SUCCEED. OH YOU MADE IT? WELL YOU LOSE ANYWAY"

@sweetmachineSP: Well, if TX senators don't have to stick to strict deadlines, I don't see why pregnant women shd have to stick to 20 wks either. #sb5

@amandad214: All the guess work is over. The Senate has updated the vote time and the vote on #SB5 was taken on the 26th. #txlege



@becca_aa: Docs from Hinojosa showing time change on #SB5 vote


@viaAlana: Davis in thanking colleagues gave @RodneyEllis shout out for making history for inappropriately touching another sen. #backbracegate

#HB2 #standwithwendy RT @PPact: Check out who's coming to #standwithTXwomen today at noon at the TX Capitol.
