- Seattle, Washington
At a soul-deep level, the Christian Right in America is a mirror reflection – though somewhat less savage – of the hatred of women that exists in Muslim countries.
A U.S. Senator talks about “legitimate rape”. Rush Limbaugh calls a woman “a slut” for wanting contraception. Laws are being passed condemning reproductive choice along with shaming women with forced invasive medical procedures.
The worldwide hatred of women by ultra-conservative men is complex to the point of indefinable reasons. These men carry an inner rage that is expressed in beastly, brutal, cowardly, and unceasingly opportunistic ways.
It is incredible and unspeakable.
That’s the real truth.
