So Sorry We’re Troubling You

So yeah, the Romneys are trying to“court women put off by the contraception debate,” according to the New York Times and, Oh My God. I’m so fucking sorry this debate makes some Republicans feel all icky.

You know what? There’s a cure for that. It’s called, keep your goddamned hands off our birth control and we’ll shut up about it.

Got that?

God. I’m so sick of you people. What the fuck is wrong with you? I’ll start being “angry about the entitlement debt that we’re leaving our children” when you stop trying to take away rights thelast generation burned their bras and marched in the streets to get for us.

The paternalistic pats on the head have been getting increasingly obvious over the past week. And I’ve got news for all of you: we’re not shutting up. This clock ain’t rolling back, people. It’s justnot happening. Got that? As long as state and federal governments ratchet up their attacks on women’s reproductive rights, we’re going to scream and holler about it.

So if you want it to stop, thenyou’re gonna have to be the ones to stop provoking us. Stop what you’re doing. It’s that simple. Jesus, how much more obvious can it be?

  1. Well Oh Damn. That’s my sentiment exactly. They want women to shut up about their war on women, and they continue to enact or propose hundreds (over 1100) laws aimed at rolling back our hard fought wins over the past five decades. We are going to vote them the hell out on November, 6 by voting for the entire Democratic Ticket across the country in all our cities and towns. The GOP will have to contend with the power of our unity.

  2. Every time I think “This is as mind-bendingly stupid as they can possibly get” they do One. More. Thing. to prove me wrong.
    I am just running out of words to express my frustration and outrage and confusion that we are being “led” by these lunatics. I’m verging on a total sense of defeat that they seem to be gaining, rather than losing, ground around the country.
    What is our next step? Where do we go from here? What can I do to help us get there?
