Publish the Equal Rights Amendment, Women's History Month
We study History to improve our lives in the present and future. The history of the Equal Rights Amendment & the failure of all 50 States to Ratify this important Legislation, has allowed the rampant growth of MISOGYNY..
Misogyny, defined as "HATRED of WOMEN," colors our opinions
This failure to Ratify has given rise to unfettered, uncontrolled RAMPANT MISOGYNIST ATTITUDES towards WOMEN, so much so it has gotten to the point that Society hands out Grammy Awards & Super Bowl Halftime Shows to Rappers who OPENLY ATTACK WOMEN.
It is STUNNING that Hate Speech is openly rewarded & when our Elected Officials applaud & Congratulate these "Musicians" for their Grammys it becomes State Sanctioned Misogyny.
Point being that the War on Women actually knows no Party affiliation.
On May 18, 2021, the House of Representatives sent a Hate Crimes Bill to President Biden in the wake of the murders of Asian WOMEN in Atlanta.
Should WOMEN as a CLASS OF PEOPLE also be protected by this Legislation?
While the victims in this case were all Asian, they were ASIAN WOMEN.
Hate Speech is Misogyny.
Hate Speech leads to Hate Crimes & Violence Against Women.
My most recent attempt to work in a Low-Income, predominantly Black neighborhood here in Houston was STUNINGLY "Ear-Opening" for me.
I have a very long history of "going there" to help, but this most recent Revelation of just how bad the SHEER HATRED OF WOMEN IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY HAS GOTTEN, was stunning beyond belief.
I was subject to Daily VERBAL ASSAULT ON MY EARS as Rap Musicians screamed "Bitch, Bitch, Bitch! Shit. Fuck. Nigger." "Fuck that Mother Fucker cuz she's a bitch."
It was FOUL.
It was INSULTING.
And it is CONGRATULATED BY ELECTED OFFICIALS when they "Win" a Grammy.
The thing that's really mind-boggling is that some of these Rappers - including FEAMLE RAPERS - have College Degrees.
One recent Grammy Award recipient from here in Houston is a Graduate of Texas Southern University & has some of the Foulest, most SEXIST lyrics you could ever hear.
Is this the kind of TRASH that young people should go to school for?
