“What rights do we not have today, that we had yesterday?” Ronnie asking a poster this question on 1/20/17.
“March in DC for equality? I just want to be equal in my own home, and do the same things as a man”…ME frustrated on a Sunday am.
Virginia Slims, a cigarette company, heralded its brand by convincing women to smoke their product…”You’ve come a long way baby” they told us, while knowing that smoking wasn’t/isn’t good for us..I wonder…did we know it too? Enjoli, a perfume maker, praised our Tiger Stripes by showing us that WE could bring home the bacon, and smell nice for our men. LOL, she was working, cooking, cleaning and making out with her man…The glaring irony escaped us. Madonna, feminist idol who made it okay to threaten the presidential home, was a ‘boy toy’ in the 80’s. She made love to the floor, and unabashedly let us see all the things that Queen Bae told men they needed a ring to look at. Madonna did all this while pretending to be a virgin….an image meant to appeal only to men….Truthfully, Madonna made a career out of coddling the fantasy’s of men….Men, Men, Men….I imagine the 70’s Women’s Lib Activists are turning over in their burning bra’s right about now…..I Am Woman….I AM Equal….the difference is I don’t have to protest to prove it…
It is indeed American to protesth the injustices we find unrighteous. For example, a schedule of marching events in DC was displayed yesterday…today is the “Walking Dead” protest. It is to protest the killing of Glen. “Make Me A Samwich, Get back in the kitchen, I’d do her, She has a great ass,” and my personal favorite, “Is she on her period?” are some of the adorable little taunts men are throwing at us. My God ladies, all the work we’ve done, all the victories we’ve accomplished, and now, they’re asking us about our periods again….Trump didn’t set us back, WE did. What violation occurred? Tell me how were our rights threatened, or violated? There’s a nasty little document called the Constitution that gives us the same rights as men, it GUARANTEES it….Man, nor God can take away our rights…….Actually, in our quest to be equal, we’ve become MORE equal, but more stupid as well…We are looking mighty foolish out there….
The March was intended to unify “us” against a tyrannical Hitleresk Dictator, set up to deny us our rights. We needed to have our voices heard….Why? At the last search, we still have the right to Speech, Religion, Peaceful Assembly, Petition of Grievances, Bear Arms, Illegal Search and Seizures etc, etc, etc….but unlike men, we also have the right to commit murder, and call it Reproductive Rights. So you see, we’re more equal, not less, and we’re more divided, not less. We bullied the government into giving us the right to kill children, and yet we are not happy with that…we now also want the government to pay for it….So now, we’re up for mocking, ridicule, we are the butt (I got her butt) of every male joke and fantasy. Listen Linda, it’s always been a man’s world, the smart ones, figured out how to rise up in spite of the male attempt to put us in our place. I AM Woman, “Don’t you want your daughter to have the same rights you do?”….No….I want her to have more than I did. I want her to be able to speak out without a man checking out her ass. I want her to be strong, without being seen as her parts, I want her to be truly heard, without hypocritical 80’s idol’s making her look stupid….I want her to stand strong against the same-sex bullies who will comment on this status….. I Am Woman, and I know Trump cannot take away my rights. Somewhere lies an 8yr old girl in pain, because she is being forced to undergo a scaring procedure meant to enhance her future husband’s sexual pleasure….She, not I, needs you. Just go speak for yourself. Me and Mine are just fine….now for that 8yr old Little Sister….Be Blessed.
