Okay, so…3 pictures

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.

Okay, so…

Child, Holding A Gun, Point, Gun Point

The republicans are owned by the NRA.  Have been for years.  I think in 2019 they received 15.8 million dollars from gun groups, and yet they get to vote on gun control.  How insane is that.

Moving along…the republicans are passing draconian laws to prohibit safe abortions, so that poor women will be forced to have more children, or get back alley abortions and possibly die, LIKE THEY USED TO DIE ALL THE TIME, BEFORE ROE VS WADE PROTECTED THEM FROM BUTCHERS and MORONIC REPUBLICANS.

Nineteen MORE children, and two teachers, were killed in a Texas grade school, a red state, where kids get guns for birthday presents.

See, here’s the thing.  The REPUBLICANS WILL PASS LAWS TO STOP WOMEN FROM HAVING ABORTIONS, IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE CELLS IN HER BODY, BUT THEY WON’T PASS GUN LAWS TO PROTECT LIVING CHILDREN.  That’s the republican way.

The republicans are a threat to FREEDOM, and the entire country, as far as I’m concerned.

Anyway, if forcing women to have unwanted children, even when raped, and 12 years old, so that the girl’s life and body will be destroyed forever, but refuse to restrict gun purchase, or make strict laws for those who want to buy guns, makes sense to you…then you aren’t paying attention.

And let me state once more, that no MAN HAS EVER DIED FROM AN ILLEGAL ABORTION, OR DIED DURING CHILDBIRTH, OR HAD THEIR BODY RUINED BECAUSE OF CHILDBEARING, OR EVEN BEEN HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CHILDREN HE MADE.

WOMEN are punished by the republicans for being women.  We feel sorry for women in countries where they are stoned, or killed after being raped, but women everywhere are hated and forced to take responsibility for WHAT MEN DO TO THEM.  The hatred republicans have for women is shockingly obvious, and the fact that they can actually have control over our health care and bodies is slavery.  They believe that they OWN US and can do what they want with us.

I’m so sick of men who have nothing to loose, making laws that HURT AND KILL OTHERS.  They are murderers, protected by the LAWS THEY MAKE THEMSELVES.  WOMEN HAVE NO VOICE!  Minorities have not voice.  Ugly, white, uptight, moronic, tiny brained, terrified little men are killing us.

If the republicans cared about children they would take care of them.  They wouldn’t send them to DIE IN WARS THEY MADE THEMSELVES, BUT SAFELY SIT BEHIND THEIR DESKS AND ARE NEVER IN DANGER.

They are LIARS.  They couldn’t care less about life.  They never did and never will.  They only care about power over others.  We should never let our children fight for them.  Never.  Not unless they are on the front lines next to them.  I don’t care how old they are.  You want a war?  Then YOU FIGHT IN IT.  Let the republicans fight and protect THE CHILDREN, they are so concerned about.  But don’t hold your breath.  Notice how they care about minority children?  How they make sure they have all the perks white kids do?  They are racist, liars and they are making laws that will kill women and force them into servitude and deeper poverty and THEY DON’T CARE because it has nothing to do with their own lives and their own lives, are all they care about.

You know that old saying…

a woman can have sex
with a hundred men
and have one child
but
a man can have sex
with a hundred women
and have
a hundred children

NOTHING…EVER

WOMEN ARE PUNISHED
FOR WHAT MEN DO
AND MEN WALK AWAY FREE
there are no laws
that control men
none at all
because they

FOR HAVING AN ABORTION
NOTHING HAPPENS
TO THE MAN WHO
IMPREGNATED HER
NOTHING AT ALL

Okay, so…

Aircraft, Sunset, Silhouette, Clouds

My daughter is currently on an airplane.  It’s full.  Only 10 people are wearing masks.  Supposedly covid is surging.  Only 10 people are wearing masks.  Ten people.  TEN.

One million people in America have died from covid.  But no one can force people to wear a mask because they all scream, THIS IS A FREE COUNTRY AND I CAN DO WHAT I WANT…unless you’re a woman who wants a safe and legal abortion.

Men don’t want to wear masks…so the law won’t make them.  Women don’t want to carry the fetus of their father, uncle, brother, neighbor, teacher, or anyone else, to term, but they will soon be FORCED to do so, BY MALE, CONSERVATIVE, RIGHT-WING LAW, in many states.

Anyone, who doesn’t realize how much women are hated in this country, isn’t paying attention.

A million deaths from a disease, and no law about wearing a mask.  Safe health care for women, and it’s a criminal offense.

Women will soon be property of the state.  Owned, under law.  They will no longer be FREE to do what they like with their own bodies, UNDER LAW.

No one takes care of the children in this country now.  The poor, hungry, uneducated, abused, sick, cold, or kids living with violence.  But the conservative right-wing wants to add more to that list.  Because they don’t care about kids, they care about controlling women’s lives.

The prejudice and hatefulness of the right-wing conservatives is literally destroying everything we pretend this country once stood for.  It’s disgusting and wrong.  Freedom is simply a word in the dictionary.  The definition of which is meant only for white, wealthy males.

If it’s a criminal offense to have an abortion, will those who break the law, go to jail, leaving their other children alone?  Will new prisons for women be built, in order to house those women who didn’t die from coat hangers, or botched back alley abortions?  What PUNISHMENTS will the government dole out to those poor women who couldn’t fly to another country to get a safe abortion?  How many orphanages will we need?  Can we turn Arkansa into a state prison for unwanted children?  The attorney general of that state is so excited to have all those unwanted children so she can LOVE them. They aren’t doing that with the orphans they already have, of course.   Texas is another one.

I think our country should truly be split into blue and red states.  The red states can make all the laws they want, to control each other.  The blue states can let people live their lives and provide safe health care when needed.  We will NEVER agree, or get along.  We have to face that fact.

How many lives will the government destroy?  How many women will die?

I still think there’s a civil war in our future, because The Handmaids Tale is quickly becoming the American way.
