i’ve enjoyed the shit out of running this tumblr for the We Are Woman group.. sure it was gonna be a march at first but it became a rally instead because the powers that be said so… the whole experience has made me realize that pulling off a truly grassroot event would be near impossible because all that shit costs alot of money.. i mean, alot..
anyway, i’ve got a life to live, local causes to pour time into (vote no on amendment 6 if you live in florida! read more here; http://floridaindependent.com/74940/yes-on-6-citizens-for-protecting-taxpayers-and-parental-rights) and a business to run.. so i’m pulling the plug on this blog..
and really, i just stole almost everything from a few other blogs anyway.. go follow these fine people to keep up on everything that could piss a thinking woman off!
and of course, my own..
thanks to all the followers and all the rebloggers… as always,
STAND UP! FIGHT BACK!

But don’t think for a second that they’d ever make their own daughters do so. Because they’re daughters are probably different from you. They didn’t deserve it. They were good.
