I’ve read Wendy’s excellent post and I’m part of a group of activists to help the people in me part of the country (Southeast) get the health care they need. But. I’m still so angry. My husband tonight remarked that I’ve been withdrawn and…I have been and I kinda – knowing it’s not fair – but kinda resent the ever loving fuck out of men right now. Like, why should I pull 50% of the weight when I have less than 50% of the rights? If I ever had 50% of the rights.July 4, 2022 at 7:54 pm #1110734Miss MJGuest
Also, fuck celebrating Independence Day today.July 5, 2022 at 4:22 am #1110736KateKeymaster
I feel the same way, except openly angry and expressing my feelings out loud rather than withdrawn.July 5, 2022 at 4:41 am #1110737KateKeymaster
And terrified. These people are batshit crazy and I don’t think they’ll stop until the US looks worse than the Handmaid’s Tale TV show, which has given them a lot of ideas. Except the show has diversity, men who weren’t white I think had jobs for pay, and women of color were Handmaids. I don’t think that will fly. I think we are going back to the 1700s but a lot more violent.July 5, 2022 at 5:58 am #1110738LisforLeslieGuest
It’s already happening. This is exactly what I predicted would happen at the 2016 election. I said to people – if nothing else, please vote Democrat to protect the Supreme Court. If that’s the only motivation I can supply, that should be enough.
But nooooo…. no one could possibly predict that once a Republican was in power they’d tee up judge after judge who firmly believe that women are second class citizens, just like the Forefathers did. It’s not like we had 40 years of previews. Nope. Total surprise.
So now we get stories like this:
Or the 10 year old who is pregnant in Ohio and being forced to travel to Indiana for an abortion. And staunch GOPers are trying to say that a 10 year old can consent to sex trying to blame her for being pregnant. A. Ten. Year. Old.July 5, 2022 at 5:59 am #1110739LisforLeslieGuest
I really have so much hatred in my heart and I’m so tired.July 5, 2022 at 4:29 pm #1110755AngeGuest
Omg that custody case. So it’s ok to just hand an offender more kids on a platter?! Sick.July 19, 2022 at 5:47 pm #1110925LucidityGuest
There was a wild article in Vanity Fair entitled ““Pro-Life” Idaho Republicans Declare Women Should Be Left to Die to Save Fetuses” in case anyone isn’t completely filled with rage yet and has room for more.
