This is to all the other good men out there.
That which we love is under attack. Not the NFL or NHL, not NASCAR, not beer, not hot wings, not motorcycles or dogs. Rock and Roll? Doing fine. So what’s taking fire? Who needs our strength and honor?
Our sluts and prostitutes. Or - According to Rush Limbaugh all women who use contraception. Rather, our mothers, wives, girlfriends, sisters, and daughters to rational people. If we stand silent while the rabid religious right continues their onslaught of hate and lies and domination we cannot call ourselves “men”. We are bigger, we are stronger, but we are not “better”.
Remember how we protect the “weaker sex”? First on the lifeboats, first out of a burning house, we hold the door for them and defer to their compassion and kindness. How many of us express outrage when we hear stories of a woman beaten by her husband, of a teen girl gang raped, we say to ourselves, “If I had been there, I would have stopped that.” or ” I would kick that guy’s ass.”
I, for one, won’t take it anymore. This man is standing up and saying “Enough. This ends with me.” Taking a quote from “They Live” (one of the best ever terrible sci-fi movies, IMHO) ”I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass… and I’m all out of bubblegum. “
You want to go after our sluts and prostitutes? The women I love? You’re going to have to go through me first.
Think about it.
And “Rush Delivery”
