Fo Real



This is why I am pro-choice. This is why I am a feminist. This is what I stand for.
Culturally-diversified biracial girl with
a small diamond nose ring and a pretty smile
poses besides the words
“Women Deserve Better”.
and I almost let her non-threatening grin
begin to infiltrate my psyche
until I read the unlikely small print
at the bottom of the ad:
Sponsored by the US Secretariat for Pro-Life Activities
and the Knights of Columbus
On a bus
in a city
with a population of 553,000,
4 teenage mothers on the bus with me,
1 Latina woman with 3 children under 3
and no signs of a daddy.
One sixteen year old black girl
standing in 22-degree weather
with only a sweater
a book bag
and a bassinette,
with an infant that ain’t even four weeks yet
tell me that Yes ….
Women do deserve better.
Women deserve better
than public transportation rhetoric
from the same people who
won’t give that teenage mother
a ride to the next transit.
Won’t let you talk to their kids about safer sex
Have never had to listen as the door SLAMS
behind the man who adamantly says,
“That shit” ain’t his
leaving her to wonder how she’ll raise this kid.
Women deserve better
than the 300 dollars TANF and AFC
will provide that family of three
or the 6 dollar an hour job at KFC
with no benefits for her new baby
or the college degree she may never see
because you can’t have infants at the university
Women deserve better
than lip service paid for by politicians
who have no alternatives to abortion
though I am sure
right this moment one of their seventeen year old daughters
is sitting in a clinic lobby
sobbing quietly and anonymously
praying parents don’t find out
or will be waiting for mom to pick her up because research shows
that out-of-wedlock childbirth doesn’t look good on political polls and
Daddy ain’t having that.
Women deserve better
than backwards governmental policies
that don’t want to pay
for welfare for kids
or health care for kids
or child care for kids
Don’t want to pay living wages to working mothers,
Don’t want to make men who only want to be last night’s lovers
responsible for the semen they lay.
Flat out don’t want to pay for SHIT
but want to control the woman who’s having it.
Acting outraged at abortion.
Well I’m outraged
that they want us to believe
that they believe
that women deserve better.
The Vatican won’t prosecute pedophile priests
But I decide I’m not ready for motherhood
and it’s condemnation for me
These are the same people who won’t support
national condom distribution to prevent teenage pregnancy.
But women deserve better.
Women deserve better
than back-alley surgeries
that leave our wombs barren and empty.
Deserve better
than organizations bearing the name
of land-stealing racist rapists
funding million dollar campaigns on subway trains
with no money to give these women
while balding middle-aged white men
tell us what to do with our bodies
while they wage wars and kill other people’s babies
So maybe women deserve better
than propaganda and lies
to get into office
Propaganda and lies
to get into panties
to get out of court
to get out of paying child support
Get the fuck out of our decisions
and give us back our voice
Women do deserve better
Women deserve choice

I hate to be so blunt, but teenagers are stupid. It's just fact. Recently, two teenagers that I know have seemingly dropped out of school. Both were seniors, mere months away from graduating. Both, have since gotten jobs at some food places.
Seriously, it's crazy to me, how kids think they know it all.



 Your high school years are the easiest years of your life. I put $ on that shit. Sure, some people have some crazy mom or crazy dad or crazy whoever, but you just have to bite the grind and push through. Cause really, what other alternative do you have?


I honestly think it all comes to discipline and respect. You got to put the kids in their place. Let them know who's boss.

Hidden Message


Hola


Lately, I've been missing Spain mucho. Maybe it has to do with the fact that my spanish lover finally emailed me back. Part of me still wants to run away to Spain and never come back. But, the rational, reasonable part of me knows how impractical something like that would be. But, I suppose a girl can dream. 







Enjoy the hot people


He's got plans to get the other arm done as well




Not so hidden message






Gorgeous

Hot Saturday



Hola!!!

I'm really not that excited. It's only the fact that I've got some time and want to be a bit productive. Actually, the only thing I accomplished on my break was writing this and watching Ru Paul's Drag Race. Ya'll if you're not watching, you're missing out. It's great TV.  Lately I've been planning a couple of big things. One is a surprise vacay around the end of May, but before that I want to make a trip to the 918. So many things....

Anyways, enjoy some eye candy.





Yum

Hot Friday


Hey Lovelies

 I'm starting my second job, pretty excited to work with kids again. It's interesting cause it's a predominantly Hispanic school, so I think about what it would be like to grow up with all the kids looking like you, or similar. I grew up in a mostly white school, with like 4 Mexican girls, and never really felt like I belonged. It wasn't a huge struggle, but it's something that bothered me. It really hit me last week, when I was there and noticed all the girls kinda looked like me. I've never been in an environment like that before. It was kinda awesome. I hope everyone that grew up in a area where the kids didn't look like you, gets a chance to feel a part of something like that.  Anyways, look at some hot people and remember you're never alone. 


Enjoy the Hot People











Wait for it......
