Who has made MAN the guardian of women’s rights? Who has sanctioned other women telling other females that they are wrong because they want to have an abortion. Did you hear a candidate for President of the United States of America say, when it involves a woman pregnant from a rape, “Make The Best Out Of A Bad Situation”. Yes, that is what candidate Rick Santorum said when he commented on his opposition to abortion.
A woman’s body is her own. It does not belong to anyone else except that woman. No one should be able to tell a woman what to do with her body. Not her family; not her husband; not her significant other; not her religion. What she decides to do with it should be between her and her doctor. No one else.
Perhaps it is time for females all over the world to unite and say that if a man – any man – rapes anyone, male or female, that their penis ‘ and testicles should be removed , and going one step further, that the victim do the “removal.”
Men are able to buy “VIAGRA” or similar products yet some members of legislative bodies are saying that women should not be able to buy birth control pills. What kind of a society are we living in? Men can screw all they want and women have to bear the burden?
I think that before a man can take his “Viagra” prescription to the pharmacy a “jury” of three women should decide whether or not it should be filled. These women should know what form of contraception the man will use – after all, if women can’t buy contraceptives, can the man do so? Maybe how many sexual partners he has is another question to ask. And….if his partner gets pregnant, how does he see his role as a father?
Obama, in his speech yesterday said that there should be the same pay for women doing the same work as a male. You mean that still isn’t happening? My goodness, I remember marching for that right when I lived in Berkeley in 1965.
There is continual harassment of women, by men and sometimes other women, on the streets, in the work place, in school, etc. and little, if anything is being done about it. It should not have to go to the authorities for jurisdiction; rather, those that see it happening need to step up and stop it.
The baseball season is beginning. It is time to step up to the plate and insist that women be treated equally. It is time that others stop legislating the lives of women, even though it is in opposition to their beliefs. People are elected to offer not to make sure that “ . . . they are making the best of the situation.” Rather, they are elected to office to insure equal rights for all.
