Yeah, I don't post too much any more. But I LIVE so there's that?

BUT THE POINT IS

I AM REALLY PISSED OFF AND PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT.

Because this insanity is a viable possibility in Mississippi.

And we can't say "oh, it's just Mississippi" or "oh, it's just the South." Because getting legislation this insane and damaging on the books in any state is a threat to the rights of every woman in this country. It only takes once case to get taken to the United States Supreme Court for this to become federal law. THE GOVERNMENT HAS NO GODDAMN RIGHT TO MY UTERUS OR ANYBODY ELSE'S. WHAT THE FUCK EVEN. This is completely unacceptable, rage-inducing, and terrifying.

I'm not even going to start on my feelings about the cross cowardice and fucking self-centeredness of elected officials who won't stand up for the basic rights of 50% of their constituency to decide what happens in their own goddamn bodies, or on the fact that Mississippi is one of the lowest ranked states as far as education and unemployment and one of the highest ranked states in poverty and unplanned pregnancies. Mostly because my general rage over this issue will cause my HEAD TO EXPLODE if I go on about it for too long. THIS PROPOSED AMENDMENT WILL HELP NO ONE. NOT SOCIETY, NOT THE ECONOMY, AND ESPECIALLY NOT WOMEN. In fact, it will basically be disastrous on every possible level.

I am moving to Canada if this shit starts passing into general government. I'm not even kidding.
