As Monsieur McGravitas notes, tomorrow is International Women's Day. The current GOP legislators in the United States have sponsored over one thousand laws targeting women's rights. Republicans even fought laws that would have ensured pay equity between male and female employees. The cherry on top of the misogynist sundae is GOP water carrier Rush Limbaugh's continued tirade against women.
Well, women are fighting back, with class and wicked, hilarious humor. The troglodytes are going to find it a tough year... even female GOP members of congress are ditching the party.
Today is also Purim, a Jewish holiday which commemorates the heroism of Esther, though an Israeli ad for Purim costumes had the faces of the girls blurred. Here in New York State, Ultra-Orthodox Jewish authorities urged women to keep it under wraps this Purim.
Happy International Women's Day, all... especially all you fundamentalist assholes of all stripes who are incensed that women have gained some measure of rights. Please choke on your own rage at the fact that the majority of women, and a good number of men, are willing to fight back when you attempt to turn back the calendar to the Dark Ages. You're losing, you will lose. Pick your knuckles off the ground and deal with it.
