Reblogged from Reality Check:

It’s not a contradiction to believe that gun control is good while abortion restrictions are ineffective violations of basic human rights. Abortion access improves society, whereas the proliferation of guns simply leads to more violence.

I’m glad we are having this discussion, but geez, here we are with no ERA, and not equal and we are asked to decide. Is it an act of domestic terrorism or a hate crime?

IT’S BOTH!!!!#@!

HE ATTACKED A FEDERALLY FUNDED ORGANIZATION, THAT PORTION OF WHICH PROVIDES HEATH CARE TO WOMEN AND FAMILIES, BUT NOT ABORTION.

HE ATTACKED WOMEN AND THEIR SUPPORTERS, WHO DO PROVIDE HEALTH CARE AND NEEDED ABORTIONS.

THIS IS HOW WE LOSE THE WAR ON WOMEN. WE DEFLECT IT TO SOMETHING ELSE; GUNS, INSANITY, ABORTION, YADAYADAYADA.

HE IS A MISOGYNIST WHACK-A-DOODLE THUG WHO ATTACKS WOMEN, ANIMALS AND LOCKS. HIS PEOPLE KNEW HE WAS A WHACK-A-DOODLE. THE POLICE KNEW HE WAS A WHACK-A-DOODLE.

THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT RANDOM SHOOTERS, WHOSE PREDICTIVE ACTIONS ARE STOCHASTIC OR UNKNOWABLE. THEY ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT PROPERLY TRACKED.

WOMEN DESERVE THE SAME SECURITY AS THE REST OF SOCIETY, NO MATTER WHAT THEIR SEXUAL ORIENTATION.

What it is NOT is a simple act of murder by a deranged lone gunman.

As has happened again this year, I just couldn’t quite get it together to set down and concentrate on a thoughtful blog, or series. Maybe it’s the depression I am avoiding. It’s not the Holidays that cause this depression. It’s the work that it takes to dig up and newly elucidate old hard, unacknowledged truths again, because for me it’s one of the most important times there is, and I always feel unequal to the task.

Women are still not equal partners in the world and its affairs. The Equal Rights Amendment has not yet passed. Women are not included as a whole in civil rights laws.

Earlier this year in September, and just this week a Planned Parenthood facility was attacked, the first by fire and the most recent, by another gun wielding misogynist. The media has zinged back and over whether the most recent attack is an act of terror or a deranged soul.

I don’t think these acts fully represent either position. They are hate crimes. (more…)
