American Women are Slowly Beginning to Realize They Will Need to Stand United, Together-

Before change happens. There is a firmly entrenched patriarchy that has shown they will do pretty much anything to hold on to women as their permanent servant class. They like being top dog. Why would they give it up willingly?

1. How do we convince the women on the far right

that they deserve better? I gather there are still some out there who support all the GOP fascists and misogynists. Hard to believe....

2. I imagine the suffragettes had the same thoughts. But

they persisted.

13. Exactly. Let them rage, the noisier and more hostile

the better to show them for what they are to those in the middle and centrist right. Also to those feckless and foolish nonvoters and malvoters, bless their enabling little hearts.

A DEPORTED FATHER MADE A DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO REUNITE WITH HIS SON

HUNDREDS OF CHILDREN who were separated from their mothers and fathers at the border earlier this year remain in the U.S. without their parents — parents who were deported by the Trump administration. In late June, an American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit won reunification for children with their mothers and fathers who remained in Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention. But the suit does virtually nothing for parents already deported. With very few exceptions, they have no right to return to the U.S. Reunification will happen only if they agree to have their children deported — which could put many in mortal danger.

Some of these parents are attempting to sneak across the border to get back together with their children. Rudy Ramirez Mendez, who I wrote about in August, is one parent who tried. He was deported after being separated from his 9-year-old boy, Rudy Jr., and he recently tried to return on his own to the U.S. It was a desperate move, but not a unique one. At least one other parent is known to have done the same. ...

The weather in South Texas is still very hot in late September — temperatures reach the 90s, with sweltering humidity. The trip through sticky mud and blowing dust can take days, and Ramirez had only two jugs for water. The coyotes said that the migrants would have to turn off their phones during the hike — they could turn them on only if they collapsed and needed 911.

Many make the call too late. South Texas has become a charnel house of corpses and skeletons. More than 600 sets of human remains, many unidentified but virtually all presumed to be undocumented migrants, have been recovered in Brooks County alone since 2009. A sheriff in the area estimates that for every set found, five remain undiscovered. During the past two fiscal years the Border Patrol’s Rio Grande Valley sector, where Brooks County is located, has counted far more migrant deaths than even the desert sector in Arizona.

No one knows how many deported parents besides Ramirez have been trying to return to the U.S. The South Texas office of the Texas Civil Rights Project knows of one other case. The parent was a mother, said Efrén Olivares, an attorney with the project. She was caught by the Border Patrol as she attempted the crossing. There could be more cases. ...

4. Evangelical white women are the problem

they've been trained from birth to believe that they are less than, that they are subject to the whims of any white man. They embrace it, they think that The Handmaid's Tale would be a marvelous world to live in, as long as their personal religion was the dominant one.

I'm more sure than ever before that religion is the most corrosive element in human society. It does more to divide and destroy than it does to help.

9. In the heavy duty fundamentalist world, a girl is

subject to the will of her father until he turns her over to a husband who then takes control. TV's Duggar family is a prime example. The father controls how daughters dress, wear their hair, what activites they can engage in, and what, if anything, besides the Bible they can study. They are forbidden to hold paying jobs outside the home and must live at home until the father approves a suitable "Godly" young man for a no kisses courtship followed by marriage. At that time, the young woman becomes subject to her husband's authority and begins to serve as a breeder for the next generation.

It is horrifying, but it is real. And no way would their father or husband permit them to vote for a Democrat. Ever.

10. That world disgusts me

it just seems like a breeding ground for sexual abusers, men who believe that they have a right to women's bodies.

And young women, not even realizing that there is more in the world for them.

Religion is a net negative to society. I believe this more every day.

11. Well, the oldest Duggar brother did abuse some

of his sisters, and it was swept under the rug by the parents and never truly acknowledged as the horrific act it was. The abused girls even went on tv to defend him. Same guy later admitted porn addiction and cheating on his wife. After bogus counseling at a "Christian" facility, he returned to the family and is again on the baby making train. It is disgusting.

12. I hope so, but they are not alone...

There are a lot of us men in support of normalizing women's rights.

Women's rights are human rights.
