whydoiwatchthis:

I realize that it might seem a little misleading to start off a blog called Why Do I Watch This with a post about why I DON’T watch a certain show, but that’s just how I roll, you guys.

So. I have a confession to make. I don’t watch Once Upon A Time. I consider this to be a somewhat shameful…

I debated whether or not to share this story.

And then I debated whether or not to put it on Tumblr…but I decided it was important.  Because in my own way, I can (unfortunately) point out exactly what is wrong with men when they don’t realize how hard it is to be a woman.  How we do not have equal opportunities and freedoms in everyday life.  How most men, even good caring men, have no clue what we go through on a daily basis just trying to live our lives.

Fact: Voting is incredibly easy for every American. All you need is accurate, up-to-date information on how to cast a ballot where you live.

Now more than ever, it couldn’t be more important for all of us to stay in the know on any changes in the law that could affect us on Election Day – and spread the word to our neighbors.

Millions of Americans fit into one of the following common, everyday scenarios. It’s on all of us to help make sure every one of them has the tools they need to vote this year.

You could be affected by changes in your states voting laws if:

  • You’re married and changed your name
  • You’re a student and want to vote where you go to school
  • You’ve recently moved
  • You don’t have a birth certificate and can’t afford to get one
  • You’re a working parent, a small business owner, or a young professional who relies on weekend voting

"

In working on my book, I went to Rwanda in 2004 to interview women who had borne children of rape conceived during the genocide. …At the end of my final interview, I asked the woman I was interviewing whether she had any questions. She paused shyly for a moment. “Well,” she said, a little hesitantly. “You work in this field of psychology.” I nodded. She took a deep breath. “Can you tell me how to love my daughter more?” she asked. “I want to love her so much, and I try my best, but when I look at her I see what happened to me and it interferes.” A tear rolled down her cheek, but her tone turned almost fierce, challenging. “Can you tell me how to love my daughter more?” she repeated.

Perhaps Todd Akin has an answer for her.
