Stop the War on Women
That’s it. I’ve had enough. It’s bad enough that I’ve lived my whole life, half of which has been lived in the 21st fucking century, with outdated, outmoded, misogynistic mores, norms, laws, and principles in action. That’s bad enough. But on top of that, instead of seeing that improve with my lifetime, it’s sliding back down the fucking hill!
Our foremothers (yes, foreMOTHERS) didn’t fight the fight for the vote, the right to be recognized as an individual outside of our fathers, brothers, and husbands, the right to make our own choices for ourselves, the right to an education, the right to our own bodies, just to see it slip back away out of our grasps in the 21st century. Worse, not only are they slowly chipping away at our rights, but gradually the respect we used to garner is slipping away. It’s disgusting. It’s despicable. I’m tired of it. It needs to stop.
It’s bad enough that we are constantly barraged with what we *should* wear and what our hair *should* look like and whether or not we *should* wear makeup and what type of body is the *most* womanly and whether or not to eat a fucking salad on the first date. What happened to our right as Americans to be ourselves and pursue our own fucking happiness?! If I want a salad, I’ll have a salad. If I want a whole chocolate bar, I’ll eat the goddammed whole chocolate bar. If I want to bench press weights, I will, and I shouldn’t have to worry about being considered not womanly or being “accused” of being a lesbian (like that would be a *bad* thing?!). I should be able to just be myself and let people appreciate me for me.
I am not a bad member of this country! I pay my taxes. I pay attention to what’s going on around me. I do my best to be a positive element of society. And what? I’m bad because I’ve used Planned Parenthood in my day? I’m bad because I plan ahead because, brothers, we’ve all seen your track record for sticking around and being a fucking man about life if a woman does get pregnant and decides to keep the baby.
Do you know what there’s an epidemic problem of in this country? It isn’t women being immoral. It’s men refusing to GROW THE FUCK UP and behave like adults! What is so fucking terrifying about treating women like equals? What is so fucking terrifying about letting us have our nature-given right over our own fucking reproduction system? Is it a fact that a 24 year old woman in Boston has more balls than you do? Because I can tell you, I’ve stood up for my rights to fuckers like you many many times over the course of my life, and that takes a lot more balls than to tromp on people who are just trying to keep their natural-born rights. Are you really that much of a pussy that I have more balls than you do? Let us have our rights! Better yet, get beside us and *fight* for them! That’s what a real grown-up man would do.
