Is it audacity? Is it perversion? Is it boredom with their own lives? What is it exactly that makes Republicans—and specifically Christian Republicans—think they can legislate what happens in our uteri? Or in our bedrooms?
It’s NUNYA: none of your friggin’ business.
Would any of our rights be threatened IF it weren’t for people sticking their noses where they don’t belong?
“There’s your business, my business, and God’s business,” writes Byron Katie in her book Loving What Is. Ironically, the book is about accepting what can’t be changed, and instead, changing your perspective to be okay with what is. Katie uses a method she calls “the work” to help people understand why they are emotionally triggered, and she talks them through the mental barriers to help them learn and grow.
Right now, the whole damned Republican party needs to do a Byron Katie workshop. I want to know WHY Republicans think what happens with my body is any of their business. It’s not!
There’s your business, my business, and God’s business.
Your rights end where my body begins. And, you do NOT know God’s business. (I don’t care how often you reference the Bible or go to church, you’re not God and you do not know.)
Of course, these people understand the concept. They are the same people who cried MY BODY MY CHOICE when it came to wearing a mask. “Freedom,” they say. “Keep the government out of it,” they whine.
Where is the logic?! Where is the reason?! How can they not equate one with the other?
Because it’s not about freedom; it’s about power and control over women’s bodies.
Roe v Wade has been settled precedent for 50 years. I’m not willing to concede its overturning by a partisan Supreme Court established by a corrupt president.
I do not accept “what is” in this situation. Instead of changing my perspective, I’m working to change the Court.
First—it’s not done yet! It’s time to don the pussy hat and take to the street. It’s time to write and call the Senators. If SCOTUS does overturn Roe v Wade, it’s time to put money and time behind pro-choice candidates, knock on doors, and help turn out voters in November.
Republicans will not stop with regulating our uteruses. The right to use contraception and to love and marry who we want are the next on their hit list.
Why? Because they have their friggin’ noses where they don’t belong.
Republicans, focus on your own damned body—and leave mine alone!
