I AM a woman. I can make my own choices.
I can speak and be heard.
I can VOTE.
I can work if I want.
I control my body.
I can defend myself.
I can defend my family.
I can be Pro Life or Pro Choice!
There is nothing stopping me to do anything in this world but ME, MYSELF and I.
I do not blame my circumstances or problems on anything other than my own choices.
Sometimes in life, we don’t always get what we want.
I take responsibility for myself.
I am a mother, a daughter, a wife, a sister, and a friend.
I am not held back in life but only by the stumbling blocks that I choose not to go over.
That is My OWN PERSONAL Choice.
Quit blaming others and Take Responsibility for your own choices.
I will talk to anyone of differing beliefs and opinions but do not expect me to change my beliefs to suit your own narrative.
That is intolerance and respect goes both ways.
A woman’s march should be inclusive and accept all woman.
When I hear a group of 17 year girls who don’t feel comfortable going to the woman’s march because they are pro-life and do not feel welcome I cringe. #prolife
Let’s change the narrative, especially in regard to women.
Speak to me on the real injustices and tragedies that affect women in foreign countries all over the globe who do not have those freedoms and opportunities to have their voices heard.
Saudi Arabia, women cannot drive, they have no personal freedoms, no rights and must always be covered by hijab.
In Iran, married women can’t even leave the country without their husband’s permission, woman cannot even watch men play sports or go to a sport’s stadium.
In China, India and Pakistan in this day and age there is still infanticide of baby girls.
In tribal areas women are gang raped to pay for men’s crimes.
Afghanistani woman have unequal education rights.
In the Democratic Republic of Congo women are brutally raped and left to die.
Those women who are HIV infected are left to care for their children alone with no little to know help from the government.
Women cannot escape the torture of genital mutilation in Mali.
In Guatemala, the underprivileged females faces domestic violence, rape and the second-highest rate of HIV/AIDS after sub-Saharan Africa.
An epidemic of gruesome unsolved murders has left hundreds of women dead, some of their bodies left with hate messages.
Let’s talk about all the 7 and 8-year-old girls who are being sold or married off to elderly men.
Or the millions of women sold and bought into sex trafficking. Sex Trafficking here in our own country, in my own city, here in Spokane, WA.
And those are just handful of examples.
So, I am sorry it is hard for me to be sympathetic when women get together in AMERICA and whine they don’t have equal rights and march in their clean clothes, after eating a hearty breakfast, lunch or dinner.
