    We are all in shock up here!

  2. Women are hated in this country and seen as “other” and “prey.”

    • I don’t know how we’re going to fight this but we have to. Something really bad and terrible has happened to this country and it’s not gong to get better until we stop it.

  4. Thank you for sharing this piece. It is terrifying and maddening to see us moving in this direction as a country, our value as women able to make choices about our own lives, our own bodies so threatened.

    • It’s truly terrifying. I have fought (and been arrested) for Choice and half my life went into the ERA along with it and HERE WE ARE AGAIN. They just cannot leave us alone. Hateful bastards.

We can’t let that happen and we can’t have children who are raped and pregnant by their fathers, brothers, uncles, neighbors, to to jail for life. The insanity of this is the most hateful thing since they burned us at the stake. Your blog inspires me and shows me that there are other strong and brave women out there who won’t stand by and let it happen.
