I wish someone would explain to me why the Right-Wing has such an emphasis on how angry everyone is.
I swear lately when I talk (or try to talk) to anyone who is Conservative I can't say three things before they start scolding me about how angry I am.
"Why are you so angry?"
"Why is everyone on the left so angry all the time?"
"You're such an angry young lady!"*
(1) As if the anger were the problem, and not the injustice
(2) As if I were too stupid to spot that this tactic is just another variation of objectification: You're-so-cute-when-you're-mad!
(3) As if there has not been, in fact, a long history of those in power denying those they seek to control the right to express -- even to feel -- their legitimate emotions. By which I mean: you are fucking well right I am angry. I have legitimate reasons to be angry. And I will express that anger through my language and through my political activism until you fuck-knobs change your shit-sucking attitudes and start treating me like a human being, and not like some object -- some fetus-containment unit, as one charming little Right-Wing bit described women to me recently -- when you recognize me and the laws of this country recognize me and my child and every other human being in this country as equal citizens? THEN I might calm the fuck down.
Meanwhile you can fuck right off with your oh that's not a nice way to talk, dr. delagar.
I got your civility, right here.
*Also, I haven't been a young lady for quite some time. I am just saying. So calling me this? It's just another attempt to put me in my place.
