Enraged (Mature)

Disclaimer: Filled with rage.  Easily offended?  Don’t bloody read.

For the second time, the Republicans of Colorado have passed a motion to go to the Senate to ban abortion in Colorado, included in cases of rape and incest.

<rant> How fucking dare you tell me what I can or cannot do with my body?  How dare you bring your religion (of which you obviously don’t remotely understand) in to my life, in to my politics!  You give those rapists a permanent grasp over those girls!? You stand outside with your fucking picket signs against women getting birth control?  You refuse to educate your poor children?   I assure you, when you stand before your maker he will not only mock you, but send your worthless, bigot ass down to the deepest circle of hell where you can play with those rapists who you’re giving continual control over those girls!  </end rant>

Now for facts.  Why?  Because learning is fun!  Agree with me?  Find the list of the people who voted in favor of this blatant raping of our rights and fucking beat them in the face with a book.

Fact 1.) This entire belief that a fertilized egg is a person, while not new, has spent the majority of its time in history being rather unpopular .  It was around for a while between the 2nd and 4th century, then St. Augustine came forward and brought the concept that a human soul cannot live in an unformed body.  Then several (and by several I mean 12) centuries later, some Monk, and Pope Pius the IX decided that was inaccurate.  Despite that many cultures had some form of abortion or other available to their people.  The exception to that was Rome, which while a great empire, had other great ideas like pinning humans against large animals for sport.  It can’t survive without being in the womb?  It’s a parasite.  A parasite that has the potential to grow in to something wonderful, but still not a person with a soul yet.  A parasite.  The end.

Fact 2.) “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. ”  I pray to the gods that this requires no explanation.  If it does, please stop reading my blog and go read a book.

Fact 3.)  I am child of parents that did not want me.  While I am thankful to be alive now, I was not the first 18 years of my life.  That is an extremely personal thing to share, but I needed a good enough reason for people not to come out with the “YOU DON’T KNOW!!”  I do know.  I spent the first 18 years of my life being abused physically, mentally, and sexually.  Why?  Because Mommy didn’t want me and Step Daddy thought his new daughter had a nice rack.  I wish that on no one.  And in the argument of pleased to be alive, in MY RELIGION and to Christians with half a bloody brain, we believe that if a soul is meant to be on this earth it will.  If the gods (including the Christian one) believe that a soul is meant to be here, then it will.

I am free.  It is my body, my right.  You take your nonsense and shove it up your ass.

There are many additional facts going against this, but honestly, it took a lot of restraint not making this entire thing one giant rage post.   For other fun facts please see http://www.huffingtonpost.com/soraya-chemaly/womens-reproductive-rights_b_1345214.html

Because I Knew You…

I’ve been AWOL for a little while, my apologies.

Last week was bad for me.  The fact that I have completely flipped my schedule upside down finally caught up with my mental state, I believe.  I found myself in a completely foul mood for little to no reason.   This made all the things going on in my life right now (both good and bad) weigh down on me in a major kind of way.   I do believe I am on the upswing though.

Last night was the start of a sequence of nights of saying good bye to a couple of great friends.  Susan and Josh will be relocating to New Orleans.  This is a great move for them, they are elated, and the lot of us couldn’t be more happy for them.  That doesn’t make it suck any less though.   Anyway, throughout the next week there are several outings/gatherings to see them off and help them pack and clean and such.  Last night was Karaoke, something that the group has been going out and doing long before I became a part of it.

It was a wonderful, albeit emotional night.   I got to sing an opera piece for the first time in quite a while.   I don’t usually sing it when we go out because it’s obviously something only some people enjoy.  I futzed a few high notes, but it went over well for the most part.  Josh smacked me in the face for not telling him I could do so.  For those of you who don’t know Josh, that’s his way of telling me good job, haha.

Mikey went up to sing Danny Boy, and in the middle Josh went up to join him, which was when the majority of us finally broke.   It’s so hard to think that next week they wont be here.  Starfest will come around and we will be without them.

This is my first show without Susan.  She has always been there, and her character eventually became the mentor of my own, so in character and out it is going to be rough.

With all the sadness aside,  I am endlessly happy for the both of them.  It takes more bravery than I can say to just pick up and relocate.   They are biting the bullet and just going for it.

I know at the very least that Susan will be reading this… honey, I am so proud of you.  Never stop chasing your dreams, and always follow your crazy…   I love you so, so much.
