Hateful Ass Fuckers

At what point in our existence will we respect each other as people and stay the fuck out of another person’s personal life? At what point will “it ain’t nonya fuckin business what or who I do” finally register to conservative religious holier than who apparently are just as sinful but never talk about it assholes.

I read a Huffington Post article about a bill proposed of course by a conservative white Republican that would allow a business and/or business owner to invoke their religious beliefs to fire an unmarried woman if she became pregnant. Does that make sense to you guys? It certainly doesn’t to me. But what do I know? I’m just a stupid girl according to some people in this world.

Pardon my French but I just don’t understand why the fuck religious conservatives feel the need to not only impose their religious beliefs on others but propose laws inspired by a book that was written thousands of years ago. I don’t understand why people like the politicians in the article or even Kim Davis, Rowan County, Kentucky County Clerk, feel their religious freedoms are being infringed upon due to the actions of others.

Someone please explain to me how the lives of others infringe upon one’s religious, political or civil liberties. Explain to me how a politician would propose such a law that would directly impact not one but two lives if a single pregnant woman is fired from her job because she isn’t married.

So does that mean the following possible scenarios subject women to dismissal from their jobs if this piece of fuckery gains enough strength to pass:

  • Single women who do not wish to be married but want children
  • Single women who are raped, become pregnant due to said heinous act and decide to keep the child
  • Women who were in relationships but the partner leaves upon finding out the woman is pregnant you know there are some triflin fuckers out there who will and have done this
  • Women in relationships but not married
Does that also mean that lesbians suffer a twofold discriminative dismissal from their jobs because their pregnant and gay? I think that’s a valid question to ask. Religious conservatives already have a conniption about same-sex relationships. Imagine the “rioting” of the religious right if a pregnant lesbian showed up at work. Shocking!
Sigh, I just want to understand. I want to understand how a country founded upon the notion of every person has a right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” somehow finds ways to alienate its citizens in every which way possible. I want to understand how we as a country became so concerned with what goes on behind closed personal doors instead of being concerned with the lack of affordable healthcare, equal educational opportunities for all and gun control. How and why did affordable housing, veteran affairs and care, homeland security and other more pressing matters take a backseat to the private intimate lives of citizens?
I’m confused at how the separation between church and state has somewhat become non-existent over the last few years. I’m confused as to why someone else’s religious beliefs should directly impact my rights as a citizen of the United States of America. I grew up in a black Southern Baptist family. I know more about the Bible than most people would think I would. I believe in and pray to what I believe is a loving, generous and understanding God. Yet I’m a strong believer in finding out who God is or isn’t in your own way. i don’t believe that my religiously conservative family has a right to tell me how, when, where and why to believe in Jesus and the Holy Father without allowing me to get to know the Holy Trinity for myself.
So many people are turning away from religion because of laws that allow citizens and/or businesses to discriminate against others because of their religious beliefs. When did God become a discriminatory individual? When did freedom become limited only to the haves and not the have nots? How can we expect our children to grow up tolerant when their are so many intolerant people in the world? By the way, intolerance, racism and discrimination are learned notions and beliefs. Children aren’t born that way. Take that for which you will. It’s just a thought.

I Am Woman… Hear Me Rawr!

Lemme ask you guys a few questions.

Why is it so hard to separate chu’ch and state?

Why are the men of this country and the world for that matter making decisions about women’s health and rights when they don’t know the first thing about being female?

What gives anyone the right to know the private business of another person if the two or more people aren’t fuckin?

Can you tell I’m a little miffed today? No… Well keep reading and I’ll explain why I’m a little hostile.

The news of the SCOTUS decision to allow Hobby Lobby and corporations like it to restrict insurance coverage of birth control and other contraceptive methods due to their PERSONAL religious beliefs really struck a damn nerve. The ramifications of this decision are so incredibly high and no one on the side of Hobby Lobby really understands why. Think about it folks. What happens if a woman who can’t afford birth control becomes pregnant? What happens if that same woman, who obviously can’t afford to take of herself, can’t take care of the baby she did not want in the first place? What happens to that baby? So many questions yet hardly any suitable answers.

It disturbs me greatly that women have no real say what is best for THEIR individual bodies. It bothers even more there are women who fall right along with the men making the decisions about other women’s well being.

It bothers me that the women in the above picture are celebrating a decision that could affect them and women around them personally. How is being pro-life as it pertains to abortion and not to the actual having a life being pro-woman? Are the women in the picture really for the rights of a woman who may need birth control to make her menstrual cycle regular? Do they understand the notion that birth control can help to prevent the occurrence of teen pregnancies and the influx of children being born to women who do not want them or cannot afford them? What about rape victims? Don’t tell me… the rape is the woman’s fault and it is God’s will a woman carries a child who is the result of an intrusive and vile act of violence and cruelty. why do some people believe that shit?

Sigh…

I am not certain of the country we live in anymore. I am not certain that my daughter and nieces will have a fighting chance to be the smart, intelligent, outgoing and independent young women they have the potential to be because they will be subject to an unrealistic misogynistic and/or evangelical notion of how a woman should exist in the world. I’m worried that as my sisters, friends and I get older will not be able to receive proper medical treatment because of someone else’s religious views. Am I the only person that sees that happening if SCOTUS decisions such as the Hobby Lobby continue to happen in the future?

Perhaps I am wrong to believe that no one in this world has a right to tell me what I can and cannot do and what is right for me, myself and I. I walk in my size 11 shoes everyday. I put on my size 22 pants one leg at a time by my damn self. I work hard to succeed in life, live and pay my damn bills on time. So why do I feel like my basic of basic rights as a human being, a citizen of the United States of America and a woman are slowly diminishing because someone else’s religious views are more important than what I know to be best for me, myself and I?
