    I can think of no other person on this planet who should have LESS input about what a woman chooses to do with her body than Lindsay Graham.

    This Week's Quote

    Last night's biggest primary winner wasn’t a candidate. It was abortion rights.

    By a stunning margin, Kansas voters rejected a constitutional amendment that would've given lawmakers the chance to either further restrict or ban abortions in the state.

    Fighting the Fight

    Citing the overturning of Roe v Wade, the surge in anti-trans legislation, Florida's Don't Say Gay law and more, the Human Rights Campaign is calling this the Summer of Outrage, and urging queer folks to turn anger into action.

    As a member of HRC, I'm all for it. But of course, close behind HRC's forceful slogan is always a request for money.

    I sure hope others can financially back the Summer of Outrage. Me, I can barely support a Minute of Annoyance.

    Frustration on the Fourth

    The fact that the Supreme Court just took away a constitutional right has made this a tricky 4th of July. It's hard to celebrate Independence Day when we American women have lost a chunk of our independence.

    Perhaps at summer's end Americans will celebrate Labor Day by firing people.

    A New Old Fight

    I'm a 58-year-old lesbian. An IKEA bookcase has a better chance of getting pregnant than I do.

    Nonetheless, for many reasons, today's overturning of Roe v. Wade means I'm about to join the battle for reproductive rights.

    The spirit's willing, even if the body's cranky.

    This Week's Quote

    I must admit that, as a non-American, I wouldn't have bet on the USA to be the first Western country to turn back the clock so drastically on women's rights, and this b/c you decided a reality TV star was more Presidential material than a competent Secretary of State.
