Jon Stewart chimes in on the idea of personhood.

I have decided these conservatives are afraid of the primal power of women. That women can bear children is something to be controlled because they cannot have babies. I am pretty sure they don’t want to either. We also out number them. Stressing that women are not worth as much wagewise and taking their choices away as far as if and when to have children is another form of control. As soon as women take off the mask they are convinced to wear, the better it will be for them. Then maybe we won’t need special legisaltion for women. Women will be legislating.

It’s all about control (and maybe a bad experience with potty training). You’re correct about taking off the mask. For too long we were told to be nice and not to rock the boat. Well, grab a life jacket, it’s time to rock the boat.
I had someone of the rightwing political persuasion try to insult me by calling me “an angry and indignant woman.” Uh, YEAH. When it comes to politicians telling me what to do with my uterus, yes I am an angry and indignant woman.
All I can think is that I have daughters. They grew up in an all female household and are very independent and capable. Right now they are planning replacing the porch on the cabin themselves. One is out inspecting the fence lines on their 80 acres and doing repairs today. One has a child and teaches full time in WI. Another works in Yellowstone doing the same things the males do. Avalanche control, bear patrols, search rescue and recovery. The third knocked out a man who was sexually assulting a drunk woman recently, with her fists.
They don’t get all of this. They are getting angry and indignant and they were all born in the late 70′s and 80′s. It’s pure BS to them.

I know that many younger women don’t realize that this was all fought for in the 50s,60s and 70s and we thought we had some resolution. Obviously, we thought wrong, but women who have grown up with the rights find this all pretty crazy.
