33. as the

owner of a uterus, I know exactly how you feel. To have politicians say things like "some girls are easy to rape", Was it "rape, rape"?. If the woman gets pregnant from a rape and chooses to have an abortion, she is labeled a "baby killer", "whore". Rapist threaten to post videos and pictures on the internet if the woman reports her rape, and you have people who support rape porn as freedom of speech. So now a woman has a choice, do they report the rape and live in fear of a video being posted on the internet of the rape and people getting their jollies from the most traumatic experience of her life? or does she not report the rape and still live in fear of the same thing?

If a woman wants to use birth control, according to some she is a "slut" and should make porn for them to view. There is a vocal group out there who want to make birth control illegal. Forcing women who engage in sex with their partners to get pregnant and birth as many babies as they can. If a pregnancy goes horribly wrong, it is "God's will" and she should just die. If a woman has a miscarriage there are politicians that want her arrested for felony murder. It is absolutely horrifying that these type of people get cheered on, financially supported and voted into office. Laws that allow a doctor to lie about your medical condition, if they think you might have an abortion if you knew the truth. Because you know women are too stooped to know better. Laws that allow pharmacists to deny prescriptions if they morally object to it. Let the courts decide if a woman'
Women want equal pay? Some people are vocal that women are just to stupid to vote, you know because they get their period and are too "emotional" to make rational decisions.

If a woman chooses to be a single mother, she is the reason society is in decay. If she needs public assistance to help raise the child, they are leeches on society. they should clean toilets for their school lunch. That'll teach 'em for not keeping an "aspirin between their knees".

Last week a 14 year old girl was raped, murdered and her body found in a dumpster. The picture the paper used with the article had comments like: Wearing makeup, she should have expected the "wrong kind of attention" "why did the mother let her wear makeup?" "She looks like a prostitute" Everything but what kind of man would rape and kill a child? Not one comment about how they hope they find whoever did this and quick, so he can't do it again. Nope all the comments suggested that the girl and her mother brought this on by wearing makeup. fucking makeup.

So I get it. I get the anger because of something you can't change being used to wrongly stereotype how you should act. How politicians and some of the general public support legislating your future. How they throw up their hands and say because of who you are, we have to do this for your own good.

I get the despair because the more we think we have advanced towards equal rights, some asshole gets to vote against it. These things should not be put up for votes. These people should not be given a microphone to voice their opinion and be treated as if they are sane. They should be ridiculed, laughed at, and shamed off the air and out of office.
