A bitch was beyond busy yesterday!
A day full of to-dos and have to-dos turned into a day spent in frenzy.
But I was able to spend a soothing evening watching my new favorite television channel, Ovation. Ovation is the shit…an entire channel dedicated to fine art! A bitch can’t speak to all of the programming, but Ovation had a night of Beat generation documentaries this past Monday and followed up last night with Melvin Van Peebles in a documentary about blaxploitation in film.
A bitch tips my TiVo remote to thee, Ovation!
A bitch is in the process of pulling together a plan for my grassroots organization to address Missouri’s medieval law banning comprehensive sex ed from public schools and restricting access to reproductive medical care or counseling throughout the state.
Look for more information on this project in upcoming posts.
A couple of trolls asked…well, it was more like a demand (y’all need to work on your home training)…why a bitch dare try to impose my values on others.
Although I am tempted to point out that my anger is in response to Governor Blunt imposing his values on others and to the Missouri legislature drafting a law that encourages ignorance, denies the known data on sex education and is a de facto declaration of war on women…cough…I’m going to go with the following reply instead.
This bitch gives a shit about HB 1055 because of the after that always follows.
I give a shit because I am an activist in my community who has seen what Matt Blunt would have to visit the ‘hood to see (but Lawd knows he prefers to meet his black people photo op quota in more tranquil suburban settings).
I am haunted by women who found out about reproductive options after they became pregnant…who found out about stds after they tested positive…who found out about their worth after they were exploited.
This bitch is there for the after that always follows legislation like HB 1055.
I’m at the shelter you will not fund that is filled to capacity with young mothers in search of the housing you will not approve.
I hold the babies you lost interest in the moment they were born.
I comfort the mothers…the women…my sisters who you will not mentor, volunteer to teach or employ.
So you can bet your ignorant trollified ass I’m going to teach the classes you have attempted to ban through HB 1055.
Now get thee gone…
