A Southern Lady’s Rant

A Southern Lady’s Rant


UniteWomen.org-Vagina-Rant-GOP-War-on-Women-Unite-Against-the-War-on-Women-Silencing-WomenGentility, decorum and just plain old good manners are the mark of a proper southern woman.  We pride ourselves on our hospitality and adherence to the social graces.

That is, until some scurrilous individual takes advantage of our inherent good nature.  Then all Hell breaks loose and I am here to tell you all Hell is breaking loose all over this country.

It seems they have taken our politeness as a sign of a lack of intelligence or power.  That shows they know absolutely nothing about how a woman thinks or wields her power.

Those sanctimonious misogynistic Neanderthal politicians have been messing in women’s business for too long now.  They do not respect women as equals and decided they will run our  pocketbooks, health, reproduction and our lives.  I for one will not stand silent while they disrespect me just because I am a woman.

In polite society unless someone “invites” you into their business you do not mention it or mess in it much less try to change it.  To make sure I did not accidentally invite them in some margarita induced madness or during some euphoria after a particularly satisfying evening I have checked my text messages and emails and other than that silly little note to one of my elected officials regarding his asinine stance on women’s issues, which in no way could be misconstrued as an invitation to do anything but kiss my ass, I found nothing.

Laws have been introduced and passed all over this country that make me look like some kind of ninny who does not have the mental capacity to decide if I should take contraception, how I should deal with a pregnancy or how much money I should get paid for equal work.  Now who would do such a thing?  I don’t really think the everyday crooked politician really cares two twits about my vagina.  Some don’t care about their own damn wife’s vagina.  So what is the fascination with our lives?  The politicians need votes and will do ANYTHING to stay in power.  They are taking away women rights to garner votes from the Religious Right who wants to rule all women with their religious tenets.  They are banking on women being too busy with their everyday lives to say or do anything about what is being taken away from them.

The current hot topic is our vaginas.  Now ladies don’t shy away from that word we hear it from our doctors all the time and if it scares them that much it must have power.   Some very important lady politician in Michigan dared to stand up to all those old cronies who want to mess with our vaginas, and not in a good way because no damn way I would ever let one of them near my dog much less my vagina.  Those meddlesome cretins think that vagina is some kind of dirty word and they had the gall to ban her from speaking.  They SILENCED her.  As she tried to speak the head idiot in charge gaveled her down.

Ladies, there is a theme going on here.  They pull some underhanded business to restrict our rights that the majority of Americans do not agree with and when women speak up they do everything in their power to SILENCE us.  The last man who tried to silence me by putting his hand over my mouth removed it quickly.  I planted the pointy heel of my 4 inch stiletto through his shiny leather shoe and into his foot.  That solved that little problem; he couldn’t walk away with a hurt foot and had to hear what I had to say anyway.

We need to shout “Vagina” until their ears bleed.  We need to let the dust collect under the couch and forget about the ring in the toilet bowl.  We need to let them know we will not be silenced when they show their disrespect by infringing on our personal rights.  As a southern lady I want them to understand that when they call us “SLUTS” it actually means Southern Ladies Up To Something.


About Blue Belle in Red Hell I am a southern progressive woman living in Red State biblebelt hell. I refuse to question my sanity because the majority of those around me have closed their minds to reality and are manipulated into continually voting against their own best interests out of some false sense of religious adherence or some irrational idea of what is American born out of fear or hate.

    Excellent “rant!” You know something though? I honestly don’t think the word “vagina” is what upset the gavel wielding asshole so. I think that’s just the exceedingly lame excuse he is trying to use, being under the mistaken impression that we are still in the Victorian era from which he hails and therefore mistakenly thinks he has the power and authority to use that flimsy excuse to silence us. No, what I think really upset the jerk was the fact that some mere uppity woman DARED to stand up to him, call him out, and NOT treat him with the deference he truly believes is HIS DUE from ALL women. Gosh, we’re ONLY women! We’re not supposed to do things like that! And to be cheeky besides! And dare to CHIDE a man, a big IMPORTANT man! The gall!

    Well get used to it you pathetic shriveled dick because your days are numbered!!!

    Thank you Blue Belle for saying it all exactly how it is. I’m a born and raised Virginia girl and proud to say I love women, gays and blacks and am not afraid to admit it but also say it to their face. Big Love!

    Great piece Blue Belle. And I also love feminist men. There is nothing sexier than a feminist man and thankfully there are so many out there today standing with us for this equality. We are raising our 18 year old son to be another
    supportive feminist man.

    I love my Southern Lady friends and I love this rant, Blue Belle. Sharing it for sure. And littlemisssunshine, my 33 year-old son and new, stay-at-home dad of a son himself, said to me the other day “Don’t worry Mom, I’m even more of a feminist than S (his wife).” Dance of joy here! Just sent my new little grandson a bright pink CODEPINK Women for Peace onsie. A vital mandate of old first-line feminists like me was to raise feminist sons if we wanted to change the world. Looking at young men today, I know it’s working. Got feminist grandsons and 2 greats comin’ up too. We need to take away their viagra and let these old shriveled dicks fade away to make room for our amazing daughters and amazing feminist sons.

    This Michigan lady thanks you! I am encouraged when eloquent, intelligent women speak up, especially from the South! You have a wonderful way with words, I especially like: “Those sanctimonious misogynistic Neanderthal politicians”. It will bring a smile to my face every time I read it.

    Freedom is only possible where people can be trusted to act responsably. When another person’s life is at stake, another person’s convenience has take second place. There is no tragedy greater than that of the mother who kills her own baby. If you believe women have souls, you must know that the act of murder will have consequences for them.

      What about the woman who’s life is in danger? What about the woman who got pregnant from rape? What about the woman who has no insurance to cover birth control, but already struggles to feed her already living children? Have you ever seen a child who has nothing to eat or a roof over their precious head? Do you support helping those families who are having trouble putting food on the table? Do you support programs that help these families get their basic necessities?

      Peg M you are making the ASSumption that when a female makes an informed decision to terminate a pregnancy that it is not responsible. Without knowing another woman’s situation you can not make that determination. What you are doing is making a judgement based on your personal beliefs. Also terminating a pregnancy is not murder and no “baby” is killed in the process. Here is a greater tragedy for you. A woman with three children is pregnant and a medical problem arises that is terminal for the mother and she does not have the “legal” right to terminate the pregnancy and dies leaving a widow and 3 small children with no mother when a medical procedure could have saved her life. Now THAT is a greater tragedy.

    If I had a vajj, the last thing I would want is some old white man politician sticking his legislative agena in it.

    Oh my, someone just made my day/week/month/year by sharing this on Facebook. You make me proud to be a southern gal – a huge accomplishment these days. Agree with midlifelawyer gal about “Those sanctimonious misogynistic Neanderthal politicians” but particularly liked “As a southern lady I want them to understand that when they call us “SLUTS” it actually means Southern Ladies Up To Something.” Simply divine and now I must check out your blog.
