Art and the philosophy of life

Archive for the ‘hate’ Category


Okay, so a couple of nights ago, a woman in my neighborhood was walking her dog.  She got home, opened her front door and realized a man was right behind her.  Fortunately, she got inside, slammed the door, and called the police.  He was right behind her, opening the storm door, and we know that because she has a doorbell with a camera, so everything was recorded, including his face and body.  He was seen opening her door and then walking away.

The police said that he’s a registered sex offender.  Here’s the thing.  If he’s a REGISTERED sex offender, why is he walking around free?  He already did something horrible to some innocent person, but he’s not locked up so he can’t do it again.

Because women don’t count, he is able to threaten all of us by being free.  This is a truly hateful act of aggression against women everywhere.

I walk every single day.  By myself.  No woman is ever safe, but now we know this guy was right here and they have not caught him yet.

I hate that women have to live this way.  I hate that men can make women live this way and we can’t seem to do anything about it.

Just hate it.

Okay, so…

Last night there was a woman on the news.  I don’t watch the news, but it came on when I was out of the room and when I walked in she was saying that she miscarried and her doctor couldn’t LEGALLY perform a D & C, to help her.  She had an ultrasound, then was told she had to get another one from someone who did not take care of her.  She was terrified about what could happen to her while she tried to find someone to take the picture.  She said she thought she could die and leave her 2 year old daughter, because she couldn’t get proper care.

She called a number of places but they were all booked up.  Finally, she got into a clinic, but their first appointment was in 3 days.  She went there and was “ESCORTED” to the door, while the anti’s screamed at her, calling her a murderer, a baby killer, and other various things.  The woman was suffering and filled with anxiety about not getting proper care and losing a child she and her husband wanted.

After having another test, then waiting for the results, to prove she didn’t self abort, she was finally able to get treatment.

She said she is terrified to try to have another child and go through this again. She is afraid she could die, and they are thinking of moving out of Texas because of their horrible experience.

THIS is what republican men are doing to women’s lives.  To the lives of families.

This is what the anti-choice people are REALLY LIKE. Vicious, hateful and violent…the Ohio doctor who LEGALLY did the abortion on the 10 year old rape victim is on hate lists of the anti-choice groups who are threatening to KIDNAP HER DAUGHTER. THESE GROUPS HAVE TIES TO THE SUPREME COURT.

Women…will not go quietly into the night.

we are not things
to be bought and sold
our bodies owned
by hateful men
who wish us tortured
and dead
we will
go quietly
into the night
we will

Okay, so…another thing…

Below is a picture of a dead woman who bled out after a back alley abortion that obviously failed. ALONE, she just died on the cement floor. No men died because of her pregnancy, or her non medical abortion.  All men were safe AGAIN.

I took this at one of the Marches in Washington.  Another NEVER AGAIN, THAT’S HAPPENING AGAIN, BECAUSE MEN CANNOT STOP KILLING EVERYONE.  THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED TO WOMEN BEFORE ROE VS WADE AND IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN BECAUSE OF THE HATEFUL SUPREME COURT AND CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN RIGHT WING.  If this photo bothers you, think of what this woman went through.  The decisions she had to make to do this to herself.  The fact that she died because medical help was legally NOT AVAILABLE to help her.  Dead women.  That’s what’s going to happen again.  That’s what they want.  That’s what they will get.  THAT is what makes them happy.  That’s what gets them off.

They are passing a law with NO EXCEPTIONS.  Even children, raped by their fathers, brothers, uncles, neighbors, teachers, strangers, shop keepers, friends, will be FORCED BY LAW to have an unwanted child, when the pregnant person is a child herself.  An eleven or twelve year old’s body is not even fully grown, and physically and mentally she will be FORCED BY LAW to carry and have a child.  How will that girl ever be okay?  EVER?  She will be in grade school, have a bed time and baby sitters.


When these laws go into effect, the pregnant person should wear a tag saying she was raped by her father, brother, uncle, etc., with the man’s picture and NAME ON IT…because THE RAPISTS are left completely OUT OF THIS PICTURE.  NO MAN WILL SUFFER OR BE HARMED BY THIS UNJUST AND DEADLY LAW WHICH WILL BE USED TO PUNISH, AND SOMETIMES KILL, GIRLS AND WOMEN.  A sign that tells everyone this is a FORCED, UNJUST, UNFAIR PREGNANCY.

The men who are making the laws are sometimes the very men who are raping women, or because of THEIR positions of power, into compromising situations.

This law, when it goes through, is pointedly aimed to punish, females (including LITTLE GIRLS) for being female.  It’s male dominance over females, and since females do not have a voice, or the power to fight back, they will be mentally and physically tortured while once again, NOTHING AT ALL WILL HAPPEN TO MALES.

Write down their names and wear them on your clothing, so everyone knows who the rapists are.  Let the supreme court PAY for every hospitalization, and burial of women who try to abort themselves, or die from back alley abortions.  Names need to be taken.  Men must be stopped from KILLING US.  This is VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN out in the open, written IN LAW.  OMG  Legal violence against us.

Children forced to have children.  That is so unbelievable I could throw up.  And those UGLY BASTARDS sit there and pass those hateful laws, but no laws are passed about eleven year old boys.  None at all.

Sick, really.  Each of the supremes should be FORCED to be at the bedside of every woman who is dying and every little girl who is torn apart because of them.  Every single time.  No one should be able to pass deadly, hateful laws, specifically directed at a specific population,  and not be accountable to the people they kill and torture.  No one.


We fought for Roe vs Wade for YEARS!  So women would stop dying, now they can go to JAIL because their bodies no longer belong to them. OUR BODIES BELONG TO THE STATE.  HANDMAID’S TALE MADE REAL.  That is my son, who died from leukemia.  My shirt says ABORT THE SUPREME COURT.  I still have it.  I’m still wearing it.

Whatever happened to NEVER AGAIN?

Earth…a poem

Globe, Earth, America, Usa

I wanted to write a poem
about a lovely
blue planet
in a sky full of stars
a planet teeming with life
in it’s beauty
but then I realized
I would be writing a dream
for while the lovely blue planet
was truly spinning in a sky full of stars
diversity was hated
and so was life
and greed
weren’t just destroying
life forms
they were destroying the planet
and few seemed to care
red flags
and wake up calls
were everywhere
but people turned a blind eye
to the obvious
lived in denial
or a world of lies
and still the planet
spun through a sky
filled with stars
a gift
that was never
never loved enough
never tended
or cared for
a planet that met all of our needs
but was ravaged and pillaged
poisoned and starved
while the few shouted
and held up their pictures
and grafts
showing the destruction
and the many did nothing
while a powerful few
danced on the
money held tightly
in their
clenched fists

Okay, so…

woman in black crew neck t-shirt

I just talked to my granddaughter a little while ago.  She said she’s afraid to go out alone.  Everything she sees and hears, tells her more women are being raped, or murdered.  Men are breaking into houses and not caring who sees them.  She said, it’s terrible.  So many women are afraid.   No place is safe.  She said she only goes out when her boyfriend is with her (they live together).  She stopped swimming, taking walks or doing any of the things she loves to do.

It makes me sick.  Really sick, to hear her say things like that.  I’m SO enraged that women are forced, by evil and hateful men, to live like prisoners.  Living in constant fear is unhealthy and it KILLS DREAMS.  It literally kills females, of course, but no one really seems to care.  If they cared, something would be done to STOP it from CONSTANTLY HAPPENING.   Fear destroys their innocence, their trust, their freedom and their hopes and DREAMS.  FEAR makes the lives of women SMALL.

There was NOTHING I could say to make her feel better without putting her in DANGER.  I couldn’t tell her NOT TO BE AFRAID.  I couldn’t tell her she would be OKAY.  I couldn’t tell her that NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN TO HER.  All I could tell her was that I understood and that all women live under the constant threat of violence.

I hate this.  Everyone female alive should hate this and even those who are dead should hate this.  And every single male, who is not violent and insane, should hate this as well.

This is the world we ALLOW to exist.  This is the never ending war between women and men.  This is the true and played out hatred of an entire gender, by the other half.

Okay, so…

Love, Kindness, Meditation, Non-Judgment

I’ve heard so many stories about women who, when shown a bit of kindness, or consideration, burst into tears or are so grateful, they can barely speak.  Women who are mentally, or physically abused by their partners.

See, here’s the thing:  they shouldn’t be overwhelmed by the rare moment of kindness they get from the mean and thoughtless men in their lives.  Kindness should NEVER be so rare, that it makes people cry.

I remember the story of a woman who, when with a new male in her life, burst into tears because he poured a cup of coffee for her.  That was such a foreign act of kindness in her life, she fell apart.

I think cruelty and hatefulness, meanness, and  lack of respect should be acts that STAND OUT, not kindness.  Unfortunately, those things are common today.

I don’t think any of us should taken generosity and kindness for granted, but I do think that should be the basis of a relationship.  Respect, thoughtfulness, consideration, sharing and all good things, should make up the bond between people who love and care for each other.

So many women are isolated and live in fear.  So many women are told over and over again how worthless they are.  So many women believe the lies they are told by the men they live with.

The world is not a nice place for a lot of people.  In my book, no one should cry because the man she’s with poures her a cup of coffee.  No one.  To be that beaten down, that that simple act, was a kindness she never had, makes me sick.

This is not an unusual story.  It’s just the one I chose to write about.  It’s so simple and deadly.  To live a life without love, respect, compassion and kindness is _____________, you fill in the blank.



Is here anyone who isn’t hated? I can’t think of anyone, can you? I don’t think the virus is as dangerous as we are.
