Women (both Republicans and Democrats) are fed up with step lock, condescending behavior.
When a man can get pregnant, carry and raise a child to adulthood then they can talk. Until then they have no voice in this.

Texas women matter
The saddest day in Texas history occurred last Thursday (June 27). As the world watched Texas politicians were openly cheating on the Senate floor.
Every woman deserves a voice. Texas women matter. I stand with Wendy.

My body, my choice
As a mother, daughter and wife I believe in women having the choice to legal abortion.
What is happening in Texas is based on religious opinion and not the law. I hope Texas women will see how this bill hurts women health. No one can tell me what I should do with my body except for me.
Stop changing the rules, Gov. Perry.

Twain’s slavery position misunderstood
As most Americans find the scandal built around something Paula Deen said over two decades ago to be hypocritical foolishness, I am reminded of one of the “classic” examples of the same kind of politically correct hogwash.
Only a few days ago, I was talking to a recent high school graduate and asked her what she knew about Mark Twain. Basically she had heard the name but that was it.
Several years ago, the books of one of America’s greatest writers, Mark Twain, were removed from many school libraries because, in his books, he uses the “N” word. No one bothered to mention that Twain was a lifelong abolitionist who actively spoke out for the rights of the black man and fought against slavery.
This first came to my knowledge when I watched a movie about one of Twain’s lesser known books titled “Pudd’nhead Wilson.” The evil of slavery was clearly revealed in this work.
