So I know I have been slacking on posts, and I apologize to the 3 people who read this blog. 😉 It’s been a bit of a crazy week for me, but there’s so much insane news hitting right now, that I don’t want to miss the chance to post about it, and I might just need to rant for a bit as well.
Let’s talk about this crazy, women-hating bullshit, shall we?
But then we have this completely unbelievable woman saying that women should expect to get raped in the military, and that we’re bloating defense budgets trying to protect women from being “raped too much”.
Then there’s the completely inexplicable attack on birth control. I mean, it’s easy to explain from the view of the patriarchizzle, but if it’s election results these dipshits are aiming for, I’m not sure this is the hill they want to die upon:
Virginia legislature not only passes a “personhood amendment” for fertilized eggs, they dismiss the personhood of real, life women by mandating non-consensual “transvaginal” ultrasounds for women getting abortions. In other words, your eggs are people, and you will essentially be medically raped should you choose to get rid of them
That last one? I can’t even… yeah. I got nothing but rage right now.
In other news from the patriarchizzle, PETA doesn’t think women are as important as animals. We knew that, but… damn. Yeah, your boyfriend went vegan, so now he is virile enough to fuck you hard enough to put holes in walls, and put you in a neckbrace, walking down the street looking like a rape victim in shock. Grrrreat campaign, you fucking money-laundering shitstains. It doesn’t make me want to go vegan. It makes me want to tear out your eyes and feed them to you. Does that mess with a vegan diet if they’re your own eyes?
(Incidentally, my awesome veg/vegan friends feeding me yummy food has a better chance of results. Maybe try cookbooks, you vapid, disgusting fuckwits at PETA.)
The GOP doesn’t care about women. They don’t really care about anyone else,either. They tried to put down a bill protecting victims of domestic violence because it would also protect Teh Gays and Teh Illegals. Because those aren’t people either. Only eggs are people.
So put all this together, and you probably are feeling about how I am right now: ragey. Unfortunately, I will admit to also feeling small and powerless. I know better. I’m an activist by nature and by employment, but this feels like shadowboxing. The sickness is embedded so deeply, to the point where people can’t even see the viciousness in front of their face (see: reactions to PETA video), or they actively court it (see: women reacting to Chris Brown, abuser), and the attacks come from so many sides, it’s hard to tell sometimes where or from whom they will come next.
I want to go out swinging, but there’s no one thing to swing at. And so I end up in a cycle of facepalm/headdesk ad infinitum. I don’t know where to begin, so I’m starting here. Putting it all together and hoping we all get pissed off enough to really mount an offensive. This has to end. The lives and the sanity of myself and my sisters depends on it.
