Back to the drawing board…did I ever leave it?
One of my other friends who was at brunch with me on Sunday, wrote a lovely piece describing things from her persepective. She, too, is filled with angst over this decision. Please check out what she’s written (and don’t miss her sister, Tay’s, fantastic follow-up response in the comments section).
Then, to cause further agony, the same friend who I mentioned in yesterday’s post just sent me this amazing read right here, written by Robin Morgan in support of Hilary. It is an extremely important piece and whether you already voted today, still have to go vote or live in a state that won’t be voting until later this year, I’d encourage you to take some time to review it. Grab a drink—preferably something alcoholic, served in a plastic cup so that it doesn’t shatter as you hurl it across the room in ire. As thinking people, but particularly as women, we should be outraged.
Among the many points in her piece, In Support of Hilary Rodham Clinton: Good-bye to All That, Morgan mentions a “new Hillary-hating 527 group, ‘Citizens United Not Timid’…” I learned about this group—whose acronym is C.U.N.T.—late last week and was incensed. That the atrociousness of this is not being openly debated right now is offensive, to say the least, and this is one of Morgan’s many points. Imagine for one minute, if some white supremecist in Idaho formed a group called Never In God’s Green Earth, Repent! as an Obama-hating 527 group. There would be public outcry. So much of it, that the entire presidential race would be consumed with race issues.
Robin Morgan highlights the pervasiveness of sexism with deadly precision.
Go read her piece and get back to me with your thoughts.
