Because I am a Woman

Before I was a liberal, I was a woman. Back then, in the 1980s and ’90s, when I was apolitical, when I could care less about Democrat or Republican, except sometimes I went out of my way to vote Republican because I wanted a two-party system in Mississippi. During those years, when I had little understanding of who was running for what, all I cared about was equality.

So, today, when I lash out at Limbaugh or Congressmen supporting Roy Blount or commentators who think we can have a rational weighing of “religious beliefs” vs women’s rights, do not be confused. It’s not because I am a liberal. It’s not because I’m political. It’s because I am a woman. This runs deep with me.

here’s to creative synthesis . . .
