0h shit i just got truth all down my shirt
My ultimate goal is to just be in the same room with this woman. She doesn’t even have to speak to me, I just want to be in her presence.

I believe the way women’s bodies have played a significant part in the Republican primary debates is a symptom of the confusion about America’s position in the 21st Century. A national mythology that constantly enforces the idea of being “the greatest” can only be confusing to people when other societies begin to catch up.
When power is confused or threatened it always retreats to its most basic impulse, and that is control. And while women have made, and continue to make, great inroads into rectifying the gender power imbalance in the West, the fact that the rights of a woman over her own body are being debated by four rich men in the attempt to be the leader of the West’s most prominent society shows there is a long way to go.
There is a direct correlation between the economic success of a society and the way it treats its women. Attacking women may bring some sort of short-term mental comfort to the powerful, but it will only fuel a society’s decline.
