On August 9, 2022 past customers of Cards Against Humanity received an email telling them they no longer want their money.
After receiving one of these emails, I went to their website to verify it’s legitimacy because it seemed insane to tell customers they suck and that CAH doesn’t care if they lose business.
Below you will find a copy of the email, screen shots of their website along with links, and other details.
First, lets look at their crazy-ass email with the subject line: Your State Sucks
|Dear horrible friends, Earlier this year, we put some new packs into production: |
[pack names removed
But while they were being printed, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, and basically half the states wasted no time turning themselves into dystopian forced-birth hellscapes. It’s fucking awful.
If you live in one of those Republican dystopias, we don’t need your money. So we’re donating 100% of profits from orders to those states — AL, AR, AZ, FL, GA, ID, IN, KY, LA, MO, MS, ND, OH, OK, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, WI, WV, and WY — to the National Network of Abortion Funds. We’re also donating $100,000 on our own to start.
Hopefully that list doesn’t get any longer, but if more states decide to descend into theocracy, we’ll add them to the list and continue losing money.

P.S. We also wanted to know what the fuck people in those states were thinking, so we asked them a few questions. You will unfortunately believe what we found.
In this email, the company is telling anyone who lives in the states mentioned that they can simply not buy their product and, if a purchase is made, proceeds will be donated. Why would someone you just got done insulting want to give you money that you will donate to an organization you’re using to tell them how bad they are?
If you live in one of those Republican dystopias, we don’t need your money.
No company should insult their customers let alone swear in an email sent to them. There is no doubt that CAH believes there are more people in other states to keep them afloat. I’m wondering if they sent a similar email to people in those states so they are aware of their inappropriate interactions with others. Do they believe all of their customers in New York, or Illinois, or California agree with them?
At some point, I believe they will delete the website page that goes with this email because someone, somewhere, at some point will express disagreement in such a loud voice that they will eventually tuck their tail and remove it.
In this first screenshot you will find the links leading to the insulting pages at the top in the pink banner. Notice how they call certain states ‘forced-birth Republican hellholes’.
In the next two screenshots, we see exactly what they think of anyone who happens to live in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
That’s 22 states they are telling to go to hell.
In this next set of screenshots, they are claiming to have conducted a poll themselves along with Dynata between July 24 and July 30, 2022 (a total of 7 days) wherein they apparently called people living in the twenty-two states they are ‘flipping off’. At the bottom of the web page there is a link to their “full dataset” which is a zip file. Based on the way they are addressing their customers, I’m not inclined to download anything from their site.
One question to ponder as you read through the questions they asked unsuspecting respondents is, based on how they are addressing people in their email, what is the likelihood they were rude and yelled at a few people when they answered ‘incorrectly’?
One more thing before you get started down the trail of insanity, many of the questions they asked people have nothing to do with abortion or are far enough removed from the subject that their conclusion is inaccurate and far reaching.
