What have the Democrats done for us lately? Not a damned thing. Just as when the women who would not compromise their demand for sufferage had to strike out on their own and stand in solidarity, so must we now.
They may or may not be able to win an election with us - I don't believe they can as long as the machines are fixed - but we know with absolute certainty that they cannot win without us.
I'm tired of being taken for granted. The Women bloggers need to get together now and stand in solidarity against the rampant sexism in our own party. How can we expect the Republicans to change when we tolerate hate from our brothers on the Left?
The big boys need to learn that they dismiss our rights at their peril. They have no power without us, so since they aren't willing to give us what we want anyway, I say abandon them and strike out on our own. It has worked before, and it will work again, just as soon as they realize 53% of the votes they've been relying on are walking out the door.
There can be no compromise on Choice - my uterus is not a bargaining chip, and I am not chattel. We're equal or we're not. We aren't, so we need to split off on our own.
