The Inconvenient Truth

Barbara

As our dear leader so eloquently put it I am “wee wee’d up”

In no particular order of what has me wee wee’d up I begin with Global Warming. Here in the North East snow is still measured in feet.

Months of snow, ice, sleet, hail and freezing temperatures has me asking WTH is up Al Gore? Maybe the polar bears need to just be relocated to the Hudson River as it is frozen solid and shows no signs of melting any time soon.

In Buffalo NY Muzzammil Hasan who stabbed his wife 40 times and then Beheaded her was found guilty of 2nd degree murder seems the jury couldn’t decide if it was premeditated or not. So that has me asking WTH is up with that? Islam has been premeditation the murder of women for thousands of years. But I guess the jury believes that “honor killings” are only a stereotype we have of Islamic men and he just pulled the “I will cut her head off to defend my honor” out of thin air.

In Pakistan a 14 year old girl died after receiving a 100 “lashings” her punishment for her having been raped by a grown man. The question on the minds of many in Pakistan is not why was the girl punished, but how did the girl actually die? I am asking WTH is up with that? A child was raped then the child was punished for having been raped and the society that raped and punished this child needs an answer for this … What was the cause of her death and should the law be changed to limit the lashes to under 100? Never mind why are they punishing victims?

In Egypt Reporter Lara Logan was brutally gang raped and the response has been “yawn” or questioning why was a woman reporter covering a story in Egypt when it’s so dangerous for women in Egypt? So I am asking why isn’t anyone asking WTH is it so dangerous for women in Egypt? Or better yet why is it so dangerous for women… on this planet?

At a union rally in Wisconsin one of the signs featured said this “If Teabaggers are as HOT as their FOX News casters then I’m here for the Gang Bang”

My friend Thomas sent me a text “Where is NOW??” I replied… NOW??!! BWAHAHAHA.

But I am thinking Thomas deserves a better answer, so Yes Thomas you would think that the National Organization for WOMEN would speak to Misogyny just like CAIR speaks to “Islamaphobia” and the NAACP and Sharpton and et al speak to “Racism” but NOW seemingly prefers to ignore misogyny hoping the violence will just…end. Sadly, if the sign said ” I am here for the Lynching” or I am here for the Qur’an burning then we’d have a shot at addressing violence directed at another human being. Do you get it?? NOW is just hoping things will Change.

Anyway I was sleeping soundly knowing the polar bears are safe because it was snowing again when I got an email from my friend Diane who is in Haiti, she said that thousands of women are being raped in the camps that were established to keep women safe after the earthquake so I am thinking can anyone put me in touch with Al Gore? Or the global warming/polar bear organization that may have some free time on their hands now that global warming is no longer an issue and the polar bears are safe? I need to ask if perhaps they could speak for women who are being raped, murdered, tortured all over the planet. Maybe we can make a documentary and call it “The Inconvenient Truth

I realize it won’t win anyone a Nobel Peace Prize but hey it worked for the polar bears.

  1. You ask where is NOW regarding the gang banger statement? Many have asked where was NOW during many statements against women- .
    Let me show you where they are – as usual –

    U.S. Catholic Bishops Major Force Behind War on Women
    Statement of NOW President Terry O’Neill
    February 23, 2011
    The collusion of House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has led to an open declaration of war on the women of this country. The bishops have long sought to enshrine into law those policies of the Catholic Church that subordinate women. And they don’t care how badly women get hurt in the process.
    In the last election, the bishops helped to elect legislators that would do their bidding, which includes enacting dangerous and discriminatory bills denying women safe, accessible and affordable abortion care and family planning, even encouraging hospitals to let women die in the name of ‘life.’

  2. Barbara,

    Excellent post. Thank you for your write up.

    As far as NOW, pffft… They are a prime example of political cronyism.

    Instead of doing something about real issues, they prefer to play political games. They do not really care about what happens to all women.

    The few that are still members would rather divide women than actually help them. God forbid that they might accidentally help women of a different political party. Their contributors might not donate. Then where would they be.

    Idiots!! 👿

  3. That statement makes my head explode for so many reasons. Is the Abortion isssue the only issue that conerns WOMEN??? certainly seems that way doesn’t it???
    Geez, Terri is going to war with the catholic Church because the Catholic Church has declared war on women. This sounds like a political add…C,mon women vote Democratic…The Democratic Party just respects women and their rights.
    Good work Terri you”ve just alienated what few women you had left believing you spoke for ALL WOMEN….leave it alone and move on….women are dying YES every minute of everyday women are dying because all NOW wants to speak to is abortion. Visit an ER room….whats Killing them…..VIOLENCE
    RAPE. YOUR SILENCE

  4. HI GOOFSMOM
    GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE LOL

  5. Well at least there are 3 of us who have a brain!

    Women raped at the rate of ev ery 6 seconds- women battered at the rate of at least 100 a day – those are the ones that report it- 4-5 are murdered!

    All Terri like kim before her whines about is Abortion and Gay marriage!

    WTF is wrong with the liberal women in this country and what is wrong with the conservative groups as well?
    Let’s not leave them out either? Where the hell are they? Not that the media would cover it – but Christ – can somebody but TMU WOMEN say anything?

    What I want to know is why a non- partisan group like ours us sitting here empty banging our heads against the wall – our members working for free and getting no where while Terri brings in 235,000.00 a year to fail US women?

    PLEASE in God’s name tell me what we are doing wrong?

  6. Here is something I have wondered does NOW have any domestic violence shelters with the NOW name on it? Do they have any programs that sponsor women that may need assistance for her and her children? Education programs? Health programs? OR do they leave that up to charitable organizations? Like the ones I work with you know the Catholic Church??????

  7. BettyJean,

    We aren’t doing anything wrong. The only reason we aren’t getting any type of financial support is that we won’t back a political agenda.

    P.S. Did you get the email I sent you?

  8. Barbara,

    How could they sponsor? They would always have to fear that those services and charities might take money from people of a different political agenda and that would make them look bad with their base.

    I sent you an email too… 😉

  9. Barbara I think you’ve already stumbled on the solution. Maybe the other 99% of women’s issues would get attention from politicians if women started dressing as polar bears. They could call themselves the “Paula Bears.” 2nd cousins twice-removed from the Momma Grizzlies.

  10. Thomas- that was the best one yet- I love it – Paula bears.

  11. LMAO Paula Bears…yes and we’re waiting on some more snow tonight so feeling like a Paula bear.
