For real, though…. women that tell me, “oh, I don’t vote…” or, “I’m not political” (in a whisper voice as if it’s something I should be ashamed of), or “let me talk to my husband, we decide who to vote for together…” really annoy the shit out of me.
Especially when you consider what it took to get the vote…
Politics decides your daily life, from how bumpy your streets are, to what your children are taught in schools, to whether or not you can have access to a safe medical procedure, to what food is available at the grocery store and who’s monitoring it… so, how dare you not vote or think that’s something to be ashamed to care about.
