I took this during a march on Washington, YEARS AGO. That’s all we do is march and men couldn’t care less. I don’t march anymore.
The American government is not working for the American people. The republicans refuse to give an inch, and are acting like spoiled children who were never punished for attacking washington and getting away with it. That…is the problem. Our government officials ARE NEVER PUNISHED FOR WHAT THEY DO. NEVER.
People, however, are punished constantly and now women’s lives are no longer their own. Men in government, can do as they please, without fear of retaliation of any kind. It’s a fixed system, of lord/master and slave. We the people, are the slaves of our own government. We have no say in what happens to us. It’s obvious that they can make up any law/s, no matter how hateful or deadly, and our rights are completely GONE. We have nothing to say about what THEY do TO US. We cannot make laws to control THEM, in any way at all. That needs to change.
The country is as divided as the government and anyone who thinks compromise is possible, well, they’re wrong. The issues are too important and wide. The hatred too strong.
Note cards from 1991. I made them last time they came after us and attacked Roe vs. Wade. We used them to make a point. Men NEVER STOP attacking women. The one on the right is Clarance Thomas. They do not stop the violence against us because they use it to make women fearful and keep them from living their lives fully. WHAT THE REPUBLICAN SUPREME COURT IS DOING IS VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN.
I have so many buttons. So many t-shirts and signs. Nothing ever changes. They men who hate us just keep at it, taking and taking and taking, until we are shadows of what we could be.
I’m so sick of them. So sick of fighting the NEVER ENDING war against us. Generation after generation, their hatred never wanes.
I’m ashamed of my own country. All the lies and the facade we put on before, when we have been rotten at the core from the very beginning. The country is founded on murder and white patriarchy and that has never changed.
