World War Women

Today I am floored by what I am reading. Every day it becomes more and more apparent to me that the war on women is back with a vengeance. Although we already fought for our rights 50 years ago and we are still fighting for the same rights afforded to men now we seem to be reverting, fighting for the rights WE ALREADY HAVE. I just cannot handle this anymore. I am not a second-class citizen. My body is not land for you to rule over. Trying to promote "life" with violence is terrorism (tell me I'm over-exaggerating all you want).

I never thought that I would have to fight this war. I am tired of hearing that some legislature or politician is trying to govern my body and restrict my rights. I don't see anyone lobbying for a ban or restriction that would affect men (why don't we stop covering Viagra on health insurance!?). Don't tell me this war isn't real, don't tell me that I have the same rights afforded to men, and don't tell us to be quite because we aren't going anywhere.

Here is some of the stuff that has me riled up today.

Wisconsin Planned Parenthood bombed

Two and a Half Men creator Lee Aronsohn  told the Hollywood Reporter that he’s sick of female-centered comedies because “Enough ladies. I get it. You have periods,” and declared that “we’re approaching peak vagina on television, the point of labia saturation.”

Romney's Assault on Women

Why Women are Abandoning the GOP

Have anything else to keep my blood-a-boiling? Please share and feel free to comment and discuss these articles below I am very interested in other's reactions to all of this.

  1. My response to Two & Half Men Creator.... Enough guys, we know that you like to fart, cheat, masturbate, and have sex. Men are scum... every television show makes that clear as done real life! Who cares if shows about women talk about our time of the month? It's natural!

    And on a happy note... my heath insurance company DOES NOT COVER VIAGRA!!!
