Hi Susan, this is Christy. I don’t know if I’m the Christy you are addressing, but I very well could be, so we’ll just assume that I am. Speaking of assumptions, let me just set the record straight about your assumptions of me and my life. I am a 48 yr old woman who works a low income job and can only afford a high deductible insurance. I am currently postponing surgery because I can’t afford it and when I have to finally break down and have it I will have to borrow money against my meager 401k (that I can’t afford to invest in) in order to do so. I went for years without insurance and therefor without any medical care what so ever. I had 5 miscarriages because I couldn’t afford proper health care. Guess who’s fault that is and was……mine, nobody’s but mine. Poor decisions and opportunities not taken. Wasn’t the governments fault certainly wasn’t my parent’s fault it was mine all mine. I was also in an abusive relationship with a drunk. Ya know how that ended….I got out….I called for help…..I got the support I needed to make it stop. If you want out you will find a way. Ya know how many of those abused women get help and turn right around and run back to their abuser or get right into another abusive relationship……several that I know personally. If you want out you find a way out. And you say you are marching for the rights of all women, but what about the unborn women in the wombs who’s mothers decide to murder them as a way of birth control…..what about their rights? You are NOT marching for all women and most certainly not me….you are only marching for women who agree with your way of thinking. If you really wanted to make a difference why not write a bill to fix the laws that are broke and then march to get petitions to take those bills to your representative. Or how about marching to raise money for grants to help those poor teenage moms working at Target and the drive-thru to help them get a better education so they can better deal with the consequences of their actions. Or ban together to form more hotlines and shelters for abused women that actually want help. How about being proactive instead of encouraging women to walk topless or in their loungerie with offensive signs that say “If Mary had had an abortion we wouldn’t be in this mess” and speakiing of signs how about throwing them in a trash bin instead of leaving them littered all over the streets for someone else to clean up. Make an intelligent impression instead of making a circus out of it. And may I ask while we are at it why you felt the need to single me out of thousands of women who reposted that post. Why try to degrade and publicly shame me for expressing my thoughts and exercising my freedom of speech. You could have addressed the original author or better yet you could have just written an article about your opinions or your experience marching.Why try to cyber bully me….and yes that’s exactly what you are doing….trying to shame me to make me believe the way you do. But I’m a strong independent and not easily bullied grown woman who has as much right as you do to express my feelings. We all as Americans have the right to peaceful protest but don’t you think it would have actually mattered and had a greater impact if you had actually DONE something….like throw your trash out and keep your clothes on and maybe presented an actual solution to any one of the problems you mentioned?
