#resistancelog (Nolite te bastardes carborundorum edition)


NoliteThis morning, I woke up to read a few sentences that Mike Pence continues to release to the universe ... including "This is the first time in a long time America has an administration filled top to bottom with pro-lifers" and "Life is winning." As though the destiny of my body is some sort of win-lose game.

These disgusting sentences reflect a desire to control women's bodies. And they almost sound unbelievable ... like they are fictional ... like they are straight out of the pages of Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel: The Handmaid's Tale. Have you read it? It's a horrific vision of what could happen when male supremacy strips away the rights of women ... where our bodies and our minds are no longer ours. There's a new breathtaking version being told by @handmaidsonhulu @reedmorano that chills me to the bone ... and reminds me that things like this don't happen over night. They happen over time ... when male supremacists like Pence are not challenged and resisted.

And so ... on this day when Fascist45, Cowardly Ryan, and the GOP aim to repeal the Affordable Care Act once and for all (but only after they exempt their own healthcare by preserving the ACA's coverage for their own lives) as they aim to kill more sick, poor humans, especially the women ... I resist.
