I woke up from a nap yesterday afternoon to Daddy telling me had some bad news for me. I was not even remotely expecting that Roe v. Wade had been overturned! I honestly never thought it would happen. Then again, I never thought Trump had a snowball’s chance in Hell of being elected. I stand in horror once again at what the far right, religious zealots are doing to our nation. I grieved in outrage and fear when Trump took office as I do now.
The religious right is a cancer in our nation pushing our country backwards. Rights fought for and granted overturned. The drive to push women down into submissive, meaningless roles without rights or power. The insurgence of white supremacy boldly growing across the country. Denial of healthcare to transgendered people, making it a crime. Reversing abortion rights affects far more than simply whether a woman chooses to have a child or not. It’s rooted in deeper beliefs than just that one thing.
We are nearing the end of Pride Month. I am feeling it necessary to step back into my community and take a role to fight to maintain the hard-won rights. Protect marriage equality and transgender rights. The LGBTQIA+ community stands up for women’s rights more than any large group I’ve met.
I’m fortunate to live in California where human rights are protected in ways they are not in other parts of the country. I have the safety and protection to stand up for those in parts of the US who don’t.
If you don’t think women’s rights matter, get off my page!! Don’t follow!! Don’t comment!! I stand with women’s right AND human rights.
