Now that I have calmed down I feel I can rationally talk about a quite heated conversation I had this morning. It’s not an easy one to discuss without becoming massively defensive because I am so emotionally effected by it, but I feel it’s also important to share and discuss when things happen because it perhaps might enlighten someone that was unaware before.
This morning a fellow co-worker that will remain nameless brought up a topic that I immediately became a raging angry bitch the second he opened his big fat mouth. “Women shouldn’t be allowed to go to a clinic to murder a baby, it’s against every moral law out there.” Followed up with the comment, “Women have no right to demand birth control, it’s not a right to try to keep yourself from being knocked up when you are spreading your legs for everyone that comes around.” And not to mention, my favorite line, “Well maybe the woman you are referring to should find better people to hang out with, it’s her fault that she was taken advantage of.”
So, to all of this I desperately wanted to do this….
But I am a professional woman, and I would never flip off someone in the work place in a serious fashion. That’s just rude.
So instead I became an angry and nastily sharp tongued female and bit out a few comments that any female who has been through a difficult moment of female life would do. But to make a point of this without becoming all angry all over again here are a few details to take note of if you are reading this and disagree with me….
- a woman has the right to birth control to feel safe and secure in the fact that she will not get raped and be forced to birth a child she doesn’t want
- a woman is always at risk of someone taking advantage of her and to suggest it’s her fault that someone else hurts, harms, or forces a woman into a situation she isn’t comfortable with is wrong
- no woman should feel like she doesn’t have a choice to take care of her own body
Now I could rant on and on, but to be honest it isn’t necessary. I feel that a woman has a choice to decide whatever she needs to in order to feel safe and comfortable with her own life, but I don’t need to scream it out at the top of my lungs. You either agree or disagree and some ignorant men and females will completely miss the point. The point is your body is your own, and no person whether it be family, government, church, or significant other has the right to tell you what to do when it comes to your body and your safety. That’s my point….yes we should all pay taxes in a way that is fair, yes I think that having an abortion is killing a fetus but a woman has the right to choose and you can’t take that away from her, yes I understand that health care should be paid for but it is also a right to have healthcare and if you are a doctor or nurse in the profession you walk in knowing that you are working for the people just as the government SHOULD be doing.
Anyways….that’s my side, and you can agree or disagree, I just had to say my peace and let the words out of my brain.
