Please forgive me for starting your break with such a volatile topic, but my mind won’t let me think of much else at the moment.
No words for this…
The Queen thought long and hard about posting this. And if the female Miss Things think that I should mind my own business, then I will respectfully leave it alone. However I personally think it is the business of every American. What the fuck is going on? How have we, as a nation, gotten to this point?
I’m not even going get into the absurdity of the legislation itself. I HAVE to believe that even the authors of the bill had to be thinking somewhere deep down inside: “This is bullshit!” while drafting it. Please, PLEASE help me understand how anyone–much less a woman would want to restrict another woman’s Right to Choose to this degree? Is it really a passionate fundamentalist view about the right to life? Or is it the need to have absolute power over another human being? What the fuck is it? And–more importantly–what do we, as angry citizens DO about it?
Is this a woman’s fight? Or, as I want to believe, a Nation’s fight?
From a Gay Brother’s PerspectiveFrom time to time, the Queen will Google the search terms “middle aged black gay men” to see what I’ll get. Of the 8 entries (of which I’m happy to say FBQ is now one) that come up, three belong to author Bernard J. “Bernie” Tarver and his blog Bejata.com. Unfortunately he isn’t posting on this particular blog any more, but he left us with an incredible chronicle of older black gay men. It is fascinating reading for me because so many experiences of the men he interviews reflect my own. If you want a sorely missed perspective of gay black men, check out the series.
Hillary To The Rescue
Hope you Miss Things have a good one.
