Arguing About Exceptions

Last week, another white male Republican congressman stuck his foot in his mouth a la Todd "Legitimate Rape" Akin. Rep. Joe Walsh (R - IL), who already has lady problems in the form of $100,000 in unpaid child support, caused quite a furor when he said that it is never necessary to perform an abortion to save a woman's life, because of advances in technology. When reporters asked him if he was...

Binders Full of Women…beyond the jokes

There were many moments during the debate Tuesday evening that caused me to have deep concern for women’s rights, but it was the reference to “binders full of women” that triggered a flashback. In the early eighties, I was one of five women working in advertising sales in the Detroit area where 90% of our clients were automotive accounts. Just going through the interviewing process was an...


October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Sitting here, trying to think of what to even write is hard.  There are so many points I want to touch and so many things I want to convey.  There are emotions of anger, emotions of helplessness, and emotions I can’t even put words to.  Unless you have been in a situation like this, there is no way to understand the amount of baggage that comes along with domestic violence. Like many child...


Women, together, will change the conversation!

    I have been very fortunate in my life. I grew up in a loving family focused on looking for the best in every person I meet. Even my teenage trauma strengthened the way I think about people and respond to them. I learned I had scoliosis at age 12. I spent four years in a Milwaukee Brace at a time in one’s life where your peers are not so kind to someone “different”.  ...


I remember the day clearly.

I remember the day clearly. I remember the face. The feeling. This is the first time I am saying it out loud, in public, to anyone. A secret hidden from my parents, sisters, best friends, I have told no one on earth and held it inside for 43 years. Every time I think back to that day, I push it to the back of my memories with tears, I am shaking now as I write these words. What will people t...


How Dare They!

May I please ask what in the hell is going on in this country? It seems to me that batshit crazy has spread like a virus and infected not only some politicians but a large portion of the general population as well. I am used to crazy. We southerners keep our crazy relatives in the home. That way when visitors stay too long we just parade crazy Aunt Lula out and let her have a go at them. This...


My vajayjay loves you, Rep. Akin!

I love you, Rep. Todd Akin! (Uterus graphic courtesy of http://www.canstockphoto.com/) I love Rep. Todd Akin. He is one badass, maverick mutha. He’s the honey badger of conservatives, the most fearless of them all. He’s an expert digger with no regard for any other animal whatsoever – hell, he’ll dive right into a swam of bees, get stung a hundred times and keep on going! Honey bad...


Dear Todd

  I am a woman, a survivor of rape, and a registered Republican. You have issued an apology for the uneducated “off the cuff” remark you made where you stated “from what I understand from doctors, pregnancy [ as a result of rape] is really rare. If it is a legitimate rape, the female body has a ways to try shut that whole thing down.” Todd, I do not accept your apology! The ...


Abortion – A Paradigm shift

There are times in your life when you read something that completely shifts your paradigm.  Lynn Beisner's Blog did just that for me.   I have read and heard many stories of why someone is so lucky their mother didn't have an abortion or mothers who were glad they didn't choose abortion.  These mothers are deemed a "good person" for their decision. Lynn Beisner's "I Wish My Mother Had Abo...
