May I Have Your Attention, Please? @NonnieJules @AskTheGoodMommy @RRBC_Org @RRBC_RWISA

My silence is most often my fury stirring…

I took the weekend to stew in the ridiculousness of these pompous asses…

The ridiculousness of your rulings…

The callousness of your attitudes toward the suffering of others…

Did you think about the girls who might become impregnated against their own wills?

Rape? Incest? Trafficking?

Did you factor those into your decision?

Did you think about how hard it would be for them to have to look into the face of that child for the rest of their lives, and see their abuser staring back at them?

Torture!

And now I hear you want to do away with birth control…

What’s next?

A woman’s right to vote?

Same-sex marriages?

Interracial marriages?  Clarence Thomas, did you consider that when you voted?  When you married a white woman?  Watch out!  You’re probably next on their agenda, and you sit on the same bench as they do.

We can’t say Gay?  Are you going to start rounding up all the gay people, because, as Beyonce’ put it, “I Woke Up Like This?”  No one decides to take on that kind of pain!  But, even if it was a decision, who and what gives you the right to even comment on it?

LET PEOPLE LIVE THEIR LIVES AS THEY SEE FIT! MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!

Slavery?  You know, Black and brown people were counted as 3/5 of a person way back when, AND, it was a crime to teach them to read.  Are we back-peddling to that place, too?  Some of you continue to push the envelope here, but, for those stupid enough to think that you can get rid of black and brown people… I’ve got one word for ya… IDIOT.  Whether some want to recognize it or not, black and brown people aren’t going anywhere, and black and brown people bleed red just like everyone else, which makes them EQUAL!

And I’m not afraid to say…

BLACK

LIVES

MATTER!

And I said it loud!

And if I offended you…

GREAT!

If you don’t believe in abortion, don’t have an abortion!

If you don’t believe in same-sex marriage, don’t marry someone of the same sex as you!

The audacity of your faith intruding on my rights!

Separation of church and state?

Ha!  A joke!

I don’t need you forcing your religion on me!

Because I’m never going to force mine upon you.

How dare you attempt to tell me what I can and cannot do

with my child…

with my body…

with my life…

in my house!

HOW

DARE

YOU!

My silence is most often my fury stirring…

before my rage pushes to stand at the front of the line.

My rage is in my written word

and if you think that can’t touch you…

YOU’RE

NOT

PAYING

ATTENTION.

  3. Awesome! Love that you put your rage into words, Nonnie. Here’s what kills me – the same folks who whined about “my body, my choice” when asked to wear masks to protect others, are now perfectly A-OK with the REAL “my body, my choice” issue – autonomy over our own bodies and our own reproductive choices. Talk about irony! Talk about hypocrisy! Our freedoms are in danger and we are racing backwards! What is next? As someone said on social media today, “Guns have more rights than people do in America.” We must VOTE, every last one of us, in every election, no matter how minor, Dogcatcher, whatever. Vote people in who respect the rights of women and of all people.

    • Hi, Wanda! I’m pretty sure I speak for a ton of folks, although some would never have the courage to admit that publicly.

      Thank you for always being unafraid to share and speak your truth.

      Thanks for dropping in!
