Do the Taco or Beer Challenge

tacosbeerwide-700x467-375x250 2The challenge is simple:

“You find yourself a fucking taco, or a fucking beer, or a fucking taco and a beer, then you eat the fucking taco or drink the fucking beer or eat and drink both the fucking taco and the beer, and then you donate some money to an abortion fund. You fucking film yourself doing this shit and then you send us the fucking video and we put it on the fucking internet.”

Andrea Grimes started the challenge as a bit of a joke, after seeing the “ice bucket challenge” take off. Tacos and beers have about as much to do with abortion as ice buckets have to do with ALS — but they’re much, much more enjoyable. 

And actually, you can make the challenge even more simple. You can skip the filming part and even the eating/drinking part (although I can’t imagine why you’d want to pass on that) and just donate to an abortion fund. As Grimes writes, “The Taco or Beer Challenge is about doing what’s right for your own taco and beverage needs, just like having an abortion—or not—is about doing what’s right for yourself and your family.”

As we remind you pretty regularly around these parts, access to abortion in this country is treated as a privilege, not a right — and abortion funds play a critical role in filling that gap and helping to ensure that everyone who needs an abortion can afford to get one.

    As much as I am down for this, the Ice Bucket Challenge is actually well thought out because when someone has ALS, it affects nerve sensitivity and the way that nerves work. The ALS Association created this because they believe that dumping cold water over oneself gives a similar effect. It might be better to do some more research into the challenge before just writing it off.

      Thank you Kori – as much as I don;t like the ice bucket challenge due to the wasting of water in the face of increasing drought, and the number of people who die the world over due to lack of clean water, I found this and Grimes’ articles insensitive as to WHY ice water is being used.
