Well, that was an interesting weekend. Very somber, indeed. No matter how hard I tried to escape the feelings that came as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision, I just couldn’t do it. I went through a series of emotions. Anger. Frustration. Sadness. Fear. Absolute terror. How could this be? What the hell is going on? What year are we in? Why is our government revisiting old legislation as though it’s some Disney movie that needs to be revamped for a new generation?
I’m so fucking mad that this is even a conversation. The fact that anyone EVER had to argue that they should be able to make a choice with their own body is batshit nuts. Have your opinions, folks. Think whatever you want to think and say whatever you want to say, but stop shoving your beliefs down people’s throats. Why isn’t anybody trying to protect animals? They are DEFINITELY alive and we’re all just a quick google search away from watching how brutal their deaths are. Yum! Backyard BBQ!
As a vegan, I wish I could make everyone eat a plant-based diet. I wish that 95,000 cattle didn’t have to die every day so that you all could have tri-tip sandwiches or whatever the fuck. But it’s not my place to tell anyone what to do with their body. I eat my chickpea bowls and I shut the fuck up because your lives, diets, and bodies are none of my damn business.
If a woman feels like abortion is her best option for ANY reason – even just like “whoops! didn’t mean to get pregnant,” power to her. Power to the women who have chosen NOT to abort. Power to the women who prefer to adopt. Power to the women who want babies and can’t have them. Power to the women who have chosen not to have children. Power to every woman who is feeling all the fear and the anger that I’m feeling right now. And power to the women who don’t understand why the rest of us are so upset. Big hug to everyone feeling the feels. Power to women everywhere.
