I am so tired.
I’m tired of old white men making my decisions for me.
I’m tired of women’s issues being discussed and debated by panels of only men.
I’m tired of men pitting women against each other for their own political gain.
I’m tired of a religious group that stayed largely silent on the issue of child molestation having no problem vocally denying women access to contraceptive based on their religious beliefs.
I’m tired of some religious ideology being more important than others.
I’m tired of men telling me what it means to be a biblical woman
I’m tired of political parties that co–opt my Christianity when it’s convenient and lucrative for their political success.
I’m so tired, but I can’t rest. There is work to be done and prayers to be said. Lord help me not be used and made a fool of.
I’ll end this entry with something I wrote on facebook a few days ago about how I plan to go into this election season.
