"We are half the population of this world, and nowhere, not even in the U.S., are woman truly valued for anything but their cunts . . ."

And not even that. Reducing a living, breathing, thinking feeling woman to a "cunt" pretty much says it all, doesn't it?

Hurray for this post. And allow me second that directive: GO SEE THIS THEATER PIECE. Really.

Of course you aren't implying that to support Obama is to support rape. Because he's not a descendant of slaves; his father was Kenyan. I like this post except for the black man vs. women dichotomy.

Nope, totally not saying that supporting Obama supports rape. I actually like Obama better than Hilary myself (still mad at her for supporting the war). And thanks for reminding me he's of Kenyan descent. My bad. I perhaps should have said "perceived as the descendant of slaves" since that seems to be the category most white Americans lump African Americans into. The point I was trying to make is that no matter how prejudiced Americans might be against any particular ethnic group, they're still far more likely to elect a man of a despised ethnic group than a woman of any ethnic group. Because, you know, men of whatever race are, well, men. And that's still better than a woman. It pains me not to like Hilary for just that reason. Where's Bella Abzug when you need her?
