WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH US?

Pic Crying Earth!

What is the matter with us?

Why do we hate people for their color?

Why do we murder people because of their color?

Why do we belittle people because they are women? Try to keep them powerless? Control them?

Why do we despise others for their sexual orientation? For whom they love?

Why do we hate poor people?

Why do we hate anything different?

Why are we continuing to destroy wild life? All life?

Why are we choking our sea life with human trash, poisoning our oceans, dumping toxic waste into the waters that we need to survive?

Why are we cutting down the trees, forests, rainforests that all supply the very air we breathe?

Why do we use toxic pesticides that give us life-threatening diseases? Kill off the bees that help us put food on the table? Help us live?

Why are we destroying, altering the seeds that grow what we eat, give us life?

Why are we fracking, tampering with our ground water? Drilling and altering the structure, the very body of our planet? Our home?

Why do we continue to pollute the atmosphere until we cannot breathe?

Why do we stand up for, stand behind people who plunder the earth solely for their profit? Why do we let them use and abuse us?

Why are we bent on destroying everything, even our planet?

Is the human race doomed for extinction?

Will our home become a lifeless rock floating in space?

GET WITH IT

GET WITH IT

Mark Ruffalo is not only one heck of an actor, he’s a real man. More to the point, a real human being.

The “Not a Feminist Movement” Ruffalo is fingering in the article below, are women who want to detach themselves from other women who stand up for their rights and won’t be pushed aside.

It doesn’t matter what name you give any of these ignorant women, or what they choose to call themselves. If they don’t favor women’s rights, we have to leave them behind to wallow in their own “shoot themselves in the foot” stupidity.

What are those rights that they distain or take for granted?

Birth control, termination of pregnancy, freedom of choice, voting rights, for God’s sake – how you dress, who you love, who you marry, education, divorce, equality in the work place. I could go on & on.

And who’s doing the most female bashing? Far right religious groups, legislators, men, women, or anyone you allow to push you around because you’re a female.

Look at the real world, you self-righteous, self-satisfied, sluggish, brain-dulled females. Women’s rights could totally slip away if you don’t open your eyes.

Have you heard the Republican presidential candidates mouthing off about women?  Don’t just get annoyed and tune them out. They are talking about your rights, your children’s rights, your future. Step up, step out. And damn it, get out there and vote!

And while you’re at it, look at the legislators in this country. If we continue to have only a few intelligent women in the seats of power, laws can be passed to chip away at all your rights. They do it while you’re watching some reality show that has nothing to do with your reality.

Get with it! There’s nothing fashionable about a burqua and there are no Victoria’s Secret teddies and spiky heels underneath those tents women are forced to wear.

Get off the Celebrity float. What do you think it’s going to do for you at the end of the parade?     Look at what’s happening around you.

And if you still continue to be a part of the “Not A Feminist Movement,” the Mark Ruffalo quote says it all, “Kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

Mark Ruffalo Has Some Words for the “Not a Feminist” Movement

TAKE ACTION

By

Alex Smith

Mark Ruffalo recently took on the ‘I am not a feminist’ movement, dubbing it both “degrading” and “insulting.”

His powerful Tumblr post went on to quote Libby Anne Bruce as backup who explains how the anti-feminist movement ignores hundreds of years of women’s legacy:

“My response to the ‘I am not a feminist’ internet phenomenon: First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can Google it. To quote an old friend, ‘I’m not the feminist babysitter.’ But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis centre, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”
