The number of times I am told that "one must be reasonable" and "one must find common accord" in fact make me want to puke.

Yes but, when they talk about:

Denying contraception  is for my own fucking good?

When they talk about the defense of traditional marriage it is because they fucking care about me?:

When they want to stick a metal probe up my vagina it is not in effect violation?

When they couldn't give a flying fuck about my health care for religious reasons and for the salvation of my immortal soul?

Can they be fucking serious?

Every woman between Boston and San Francisco, between Chicago and New Orleans should be running these idiots out of town.

Some people expect me to be sitting down and talking to these jokers seriously for the good of the nation?

You're fucking joking, right? Right?

I'm so effing tired that conservative "values" must be give some type of bloody legitimacy, since so many in our nation hold these idiocies to be "true" and that negotiation is better that outright condemnation.

I'm at a loss, these people should be treated seriously?

What the fuck.

I am happy with who I am.

I am freed by whom I love and will not be dictated to and you may well ask why I am ranting.

The debate is no longer about subtleties of policy, it is about fundamental human rights, the right wing has gone too far in this GOP primary. No matter what they say from here on in has no relevance, what has been said, has been said.

It has not been voices from my side of the divide that has been engendering this gender war, far from it, so much ground has been given without a fight.

How scandalous would have been the choice of an all male commission to determine women's rights but a few years ago? Surely someone would have spoken up, right?

My question is:

How have we fallen so low?

The fight for women's rights started nearly two hundred years ago, are we still at the same bloody point?

We must reject the current right-wing thought completely from a philosophical standpoint, and we must insist that our own party is more vocal in our support.

We are on the cusp, and if we are silent then we have only ourselves to blame.

The right hates me, it hates all women, isn't it bloody obvious? This war on women must end, we have absolutely nothing in common either morally nor  of mutual benefit.

It is time to stop the pretense.

1:32 PM PT: PS this election is all about

The war on women

Whether they like it or not, and it is a sure fire winner for us on the left

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
