  •  Yes I DO live here in Texas, tyvm. (4+ / 0-)

    Yes I am well aware of the stupidity that surrounds our legislators, I will also remind you of the fact that Texas is heavily gerrymandered so you have a minority of legislative men making laws based on their own shuttered ideas of the world.

    Texas can be very blue if we put our shoulders to it, we have a very very low turnout here in Texas, remember that. So there isn't widespread hate against women in Texas, it's that voters feel there is no alternative or their voices don't count, exactly what these men love having so they stay in power.

    If things like this piss you off, then use that energy to turn things around. Remember ideology drives them more than anything, arm yourself against that and let's turn things around. The only way we make them see that we won't take this lying down, is for every woman (and every man who loves a woman) to stand up in Texas and vote them out.

    Back to your diary though, this kid is gonna be fine. I would bet on it. I really do understand your panic on this, as I've been there as well and had to pull myself out of it. He'll be ok, he was defending his mother. This is just the way the system has to work.

    It is every person's obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what they takes out of it. - Albert Einstein (edited for modern times to include everyone by me!)
