I’ve been proud because I’m assuming that women came out in this election and said…enough is enough. I’m giving our gender the credit for booting out some of those who are trying to enslave us again. It’s about time. I just couldn’t believe some of the stuff that came out of some of these politician’s mouths and they thought it was OK. The stuff about rape, abortion and family planning. I sometimes had to check my calendar to make sure it really was 2012. Then I’d do a quick mental status exam on myself to make sure my switch hasn’t snapped. Not easy to do on myself. I might be a bit biased scoring that test.
Women often disappoint me, seriously disappoint me. They too often kick their sister’s in the face to stand by their man. Not even their man, just any old man. This country wouldn’t put up with some of the awful things that are said about women if it were said about any other minority and we aren’t even a minority. I think we may even be a tad over half of the population. The fact that Rush L still has his fat A on the radio proves that. We have the power but don’t recognize it and we don’t use it.
I saw little Malala on TV this morning. She’s the little girl in Pakistan who was shot in the head trying to stand up for the right of girls to get an education. That’s true courage. That’s what got me pondering on this subject. She’s recovering, thank God. She is certainly one of our powerful teachers. You go girl! Now, it’s time for the rest of us to get moving.
