I Am More Than My Vagina

October 23, 2012

Andrea K. Robsonby Andrea K. Robson

To all my female countrymen who are still undecided…. Early voting has begun, and I would like to say a few things to you before you cast that vote.

As a woman, I find it insulting that Obama and his campaign team truly believe that the only thing that matters to me or any woman is whether or not she is able to get free birth control, or free abortions. Really! Women have fought for a long time to be seen as intelligent human beings, as capable of dealing with anything life throws at them! We burned our bras, and demanded to be treated with respect and not just as a pair of breasts and a nice round bottom! And yet, that is precisely the way the Democrats and Obama look upon woman today….it’s all about, our “lady parts” and our vaginas with them!

As women we run our homes as seamlessly as any CEO, hell, we are CEO’s! We multitask, between our jobs and our families keeping many balls in the air at once. What matters to us is not our “lady parts” and our vaginas, what matters to us, is the price of a gallon of milk, the price of a loaf of bread, the price of peanut butter! Have you been grocery shopping lately? It’s enough to cause anyone to suck air or have an attack of apoplexy! What matters to us, is what will the grocery bill be the next time we go grocery shopping? Can we afford to purchase the school pictures this year, or will that be just one more thing that has to be given up, to make ends meet! What matters to us,

is the fact that many people are still swimming in debt and the housing market is still in a mess, with no signs of reviving any time soon. What matters to us, is the fact that 8.2 million fellow American’s have given up even looking for work altogether during the Obama term!

What matters to women is the number of American’s on food stamps has raised by 18.7 million, reaching an all-time high of 43.6 million individuals and families receiving (SNAP), Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. What matters to us, is the price of a gallon of gas! The fact that in some cases, depending on where we live, $10 dollars does not even get us a 1/4 tank of gas!! Images of the Weimar Republic keep dancing through my head, as the parallels between 1924 Germany and present-day United States are cause for concern. Then add to this already nightmarish mix, the National Debt of $16,210,918,277,827.84 and counting and the need for oxygen becomes necessary!

Our paychecks are shrinking, our household budgets are shrinking, and Obama is perpetuating this false notion and narrative that it is all about our vaginas! Seriously! I for one am well and truly over the whole “lady parts” and vagina BS that Obama and his campaign team continue touting, and I resent the hell out of the President of the United States, flaunting my vagina as the most important issue for me as a woman!

So ladies, I am asking you to stop and use your brain, and NOT your Vagina before you cast that vote! Think about your children’s future, the legacy you leave behind. Will they thank you or curse you for the decision you make on November 6th?

    “Can we afford to purchase the school pictures this year, or will that be just one more thing that has to be given up, to make ends meet!”

    We wouldn’t have to worry about that if we were given free birth control. Just saying…

    I find that you claiming all women are more concerned about child care and cleaning the house is just as misguided and arrogant as president Obama thinking our “lady parts” are the only thing that defines us. If you think he should get off his high horse and stop telling women what we care about, you should do the same. Hypocrites suck.

      Really….If you give me free birth control I will be able to get my kids school picture…even if I DON’T have a job!…That was a ridiculous statement! Just Saying! They are nine dollars a month (birth control) If you can’t afford that, abstinence is free…Again, Just saying!

      And Mandy, did you really think that this article was about house cleaning? Did you read the article? The author spoke of women being CEO’s do you know what that means? Hint…It has nothing to do with house work. fact is that we women wear many hats (hint, I don’t mean that literally) and only one of those hats would be the running of our homes. You say house cleaning like it is meaningless. I don’t know about you, but I choose not to live in a pig sty. But the issue here is that as women sex is not the main and or only thing on our minds and who is going to pay for “our” contraceptives is not what is going to make a strong self sufficient woman run out and vote! I am offended that Obama would assume that I don’t think I should be held accountable for my choices regarding sex. Like somehow I am not concerned with the economy, what does he think I am just a little woman that can’t comprehend the big issues and all that makes my world turn is having all the sex I want and non of the responsibilities….I am ashamed of the woman today that they would allow us to be reduced to that. We fought hard to be taken seriously and to be treated as the intelligent capable woman that we are and that we are most certainly able to take care of ourselves and able to make sound and responsible choices. Not so in the mind of Obama though, apparently to him we just want free birth control and free abortions because we are not competent enough to handle those things on our own! Well shame on you for agreeing with that Ideology!

    @ mandy….you have completely missed the point here. What the author of this piece is pointing out is that women are concerned about the state of our economy not birth control and abortions. She is pointing out that women are concerned about the same issues as men. The fact is that groceries and gas (which last time I checked I’m pretty sure everyone…man and woman….purchase) are ridiculously expensive things right now, just to name a couple, that are making it hard for ANY family to make ends meet. And there are many other issues to be concerned about which the author touched on. Oh and by the way, I found nowhere in this piece that suggested the author was saying that women were only concerned about child care and cleaning the house….where exactly did she mention cleaning the house? So really…where is the hypocracy?

    Yes! We don’t need the government involved in everything, and there are MUUUUUUUUCH more important issues (economy, debt, foreign policy, taxes etc) that we (women and everyone) should be focusing on. Is getting free birth control really worth giving up all your other rights? Uhm… NO!
