Having been raised in a culture where women are treated as 45th class citizens, I know what it's like to be dismissed and diminished and completely negated.
I'd always thought, though, that adopting the American ethos, that being an American, would be an entree into a world where I would be treated fairly, with respect, with the understanding that I have worth.
Fuck you, SCOTUS. Just fuck you. Fuck you bullshit motherfuckers who think that your religion trumps my autonomy. Eat a giant bag of dicks.
This is not a theoretical issue - this cuts straight to the core of being a woman, of being in charge of your own body. I am aghast at the absolute disdain this ruling shows for women. This is not an issue about money or even religious freedom, really. This is about telling women that men control them. It is about keeping a woman in her place.
I am so angry, so despondent, that I don't even know what to do. I know I'll never shop at Hobby Lobby - but I didn't do that before, so what does that change?
Honestly. I don't even know what to do.
