I had this argument with a Democrat female friend of mine in 2007. She was afraid that voting Republican would overturn abortion laws. I pointed out to her that we had just lived through eight years of a very socially conservative president and the abortion laws were intact. I also asked her if that is a big issue for her in the election.
I know that there were historic bra burnings. But really, who burns their bras these days? I spend a fortune on them and take very good care of them, thank you very much!
I own my own business, travel and entertain a lot, have many hobbies that I don't always get enough time for, and am considering writing a memoir. I donate money and time to causes I believe in. Birth control has never occupied more than one percent of my time ever in my life. I suspect the actual lifetime number is much lower than that.
So what is up with the entire birth control debate? Am I just a walking vagina? Is this insulting just to me or others?
Do I not care about the jobless rate in this country? The economy?
Do I not care about the failure of K-12 education? Unions, waste, opportunities denied the next generation?
Do I not care about inflation? The overreach of the Federal Reserve? The executive overreach?
Do I not care about our freedoms? Warrantless wiretaps under the guise of our safety? The increase in SWAT raids in the name of drug war?
Is this some kind of sick male fantasy - just focus on the vagina - leave the rest to us? Seriously?
Why don't the women in the media call on this? (both on the right and the left). Why are more women not outraged by this?
