Jessica Chastain weighed in on the recent health care decisions last week and got a strange and unexpected response from MLB player Matt Garza.
"#BirthControl is no longer covered by health insurance. Congrats USA, you're doing your part to keep women out of the work force. #smfh," Chastain tweeted.
Garza responded with, "It's called abstinence, a word that has been forgotten amongst this generation... it's the best contraceptive... #juatsaying."
Aside from the blatant mansplaining here, which women definitely don't need more of, Garza's hypocrisy is also enough to get any woman's blood boiling.
Tweeters were quick to point out that Garza doesn't need to be schooling Chastain on the word "abstinence," when he has six children, one he fathered at just 18.

Meanwhile, Chastain is ignoring the hate, instead focusing on the women's march she is participating in ahead of Donald Trump's inauguration.
I am marching to protect the disenfranchised. I stand with you for reproductive choice, wage equality, and freedom from sexual violence. https://t.co/yMXPPlIl4j— Jessica Chastain (@jes_chastain) January 13, 2017
Garza, on the other hand, is justifying his comment on Twitter by saying his son, who is now a teenager, is a 4.0 student. Clearly, he doesn't get it.
No, it was 18 and my son is a 14 yr old freshman with a 4.0 gpa.. thanks for asking... https://t.co/oLcPwmxweW— Matt garza (@Gdeuceswild) January 13, 2017
