Barefoot and Pregnant...

Since no one seems to be reacting to this proposal I thought I would provide some more articles for your perusal, before I decide that everything I have worked and voted for in my lifetime is just going down the drain and women are just plain out fucking determined to stay beneath a man. Every article I read on this subject just makes me want to scream and or take to my bed as only a true southern female can.

I like men, don't get me wrong and I don't totally blame them for our predicament. Until we as women take the time out of our busy schedules to pay attention to what is happening around us things will never change and apparently will revert back to medieval times. Last night I dreamed I entered a sitting room in the White House and there was Bush surrounded by hundreds of naked pregnant women all smiling up at him and thanking him for thinking for them, because they really did want to have many, many children even without the help of a man or an income to support them. When oh when are we going to make a man as accountable for children as we do a woman? When?

It's been a long day so I'll leave you with the links:

Alternet: White House Tries to Define Contraception as Abortion


  1. Here's the ultimate slap in the face: if men had babies, none of this would even be an issue.

    I agree with you that as women, we need to be much more pro-active then we are now.

    January can't come soon enough.

  2. I refer to my previous comment but it really does beggar belief that that as is written in the article, politics and ideology are able to play a role in this arena. And birth control being redefined as abortion is insulting, frankly and restricting access, in my view, is irresponsible and even immoral (according to my humanist moral values!).

  3. Are you KIDDING ME? Birth control as abortion??? I'm trying to think of a comment, but I'm just speechless. Please help us, Mr. Obama, everyone's lost their freaking minds!!!

  4. if there was one thing the shithead learned how to do while in office it was to slide his own personal agenda through while we are distracted by other things. we may never recover from his agenda. I want to believe that we will start the recovery process in january but the more i read about who the chosen one is choosing to back him up the more i think we are still the butts of some political inside joke and there will always be an excuse made for why it didn't happen as promised. i will still vote for him but if he can't live up to the promises then i may never vote again. not because i'm unpatriotic but because i have given up hope for real change and have decided to just deal with it the best way i can until i die.
