  •  Great diary (7+ / 0-)

    Love this Mother Jones quote:

    "A lady is the last thing on earth I want to be.  Capitalists side-track the women into clubs and make ladies of them.”
     “No matter what the fight, don’t be ladylike! God almighty made women and the Rockefeller gang of thieves made the ladies.”
    I'm always distracted on Sunday, so I apologize for not participating as much as I should, but this is a great series and diary.

      Too often we have been too nice -- and look where it got us -- instead of calling out Republicans on trying to outlaw birthcontrol and the morning after pill and generally numerous tools helpful to women, we discussed in terms of technical procedures or religious freedom instead of immediately calling it out for what it is-- and old fashioned political patriarchal attack on women.  If we had any doubt about that, Rush Limbaugh put it to rest this week.  Finally progressives are starting to talk about the issue in terms of what it is--attack on women's reporductive rights.

        And Republican women are brainwashed into subtly believing what Limbaugh believes. A from of Stockholm syndrome caused by male society and their psychological control of women in association with their political patriarchal attack on women.
