...lend me your ears. I come to bury your men, not praise them...
It is unfair to suggest that the mothers, wives and daughters of these men ignore the damage being inflicted on women every day, but perhaps they've been living with STUPID so long they are now immune. Where are Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush, Laura Bush who, as First Lady, modeled power, unafraid to defend their own autonomy as well as ours. They used the power of persusion to focus attention on injustice and to speak out against ignorance. Who among today's Republican women speak for the rights of future generations of women? Ignorance is not owned by one political party; it just seems like a GOP thing because their mouthpieces at Fox keep everything stirred up, vis a vis Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity...idiots.
One must wonder if the current crop of elected GOP members have so screwed up their understanding of morality that they've tinted everything in 50 shades of grey. Are these the same men who defend their 1st and 2nd Amendment rights while trampling the rights of the "weaker sex" demanding that we surrender authority over our own bodies? Are these the same men who do not see in every young woman a potential voter? They blind side themselves.
It is time for the most powerful women in both chambers of Congress to make a few of their own demands. Vasectomy comes to mind...any volunteers?
