The Normalization of Prostitution Angers Me
It started minor enough –
jokes about hookers –
Are the writers being payed off?
The sexual exploitation of women,
men are loath to give it up.
Last night – The Big Bang Theory –
“What are you doing with that girlfriend?
You’re only with her for sex.
Don’t you know you can and
should pay for sex with a hoe?”
To me, prostitution, one of the ugliest
manifestations of a sexist society.
How much did the criminal mobs
lose when women were free?
Our Iowa Motto
From, mostly, the Center for Disease Control,
for 2013, for the USA – some deaths with numbers.
motor vehicle accidents, 35,369
firearms (except suicides), 11,713
mothers’ – from the birth process, 729
war – in Afghanistan – US military, 119
18 from jihadist terrorist attacks
Every life is important – we count each one.
Dr. Low –
the incomparable Dr. Low,
we know that angry temper arises out of
a sense of being deliberately wronged,
not the accidental.
“Our liberties we prize
and our rights we will maintain.”
