You're Expecting Maybe Righteous Indignation?
Gee, I'm a liberal feminist. That means I should be all over the story of this pro choice physician in Kansas being assassinated, shouldn't I? I mean, honestly, all my Bloggy pals are weighing in on the outrage, shouldn't I be doing the same?
Sorry, those days are over.
Oh, there was a time I was marching for the ERA and choice and all that, then I realized that chicks who want the freedom to choose abortion have never lifted a finger to complain or march or petition about gays being denied civil rights.
There was a time I marched against war, against civil rights violations, against a lot of stuff, but where's the reciprocation, straighties?
There is none.
Well, very little, I should say.
I think women of abortion-having age forget how they got that goddamn right to begin with. Before Roe v. Wade, lesbos like me without any horses in this race would take to the streets, escort women into clinics under siege and otherwise risk our safety to fight for rights we didn't even need.
Well, fuck that.
I think maybe Roe v. Wade should be overturned and let these self absorbed breeder chicks start to understand they've been taking their basic human rights for granted.
Let them mobilize to get them back.
Besides queers being trendy accessories and tokens at straight parties, what have the breeders ever done for our trampled rights?
How many straight Black people are on the news saying, "The queers marched for us, now we're marching for them!"
How about none?
Sorry, fellow liberals, I am now a one trick pony.
No more donating to this or marching for that unless it involves queers getting an even break.
Remember this call to arms?
When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.
Then they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
I did not protest;
I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
I did not speak out;
I was not a Jew.
When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out for me.
Please note that practically all the downtrodden were mentioned except for the queers.
Well, this queer is fed up.
Abortion is not now, nor has it ever been my issue.
I've tried to show solidarity practically all my adult life, but have gotten bupkis in return.
My charitable, activist duties are suspended until we queers get what the rest of Americans have.
