So, ladies…Moms…we need to talk. We need to talk about the impolite topics of gun legislation and gun violence; about politics and policies; about racism and bigotry. The most interesting people I know are those I can have a real conversation with. The ones who are up on their current events. Who have an opinion and aren’t embarrassed or afraid to share it. People who have a voice. We need to find our voice.
We need to find the courage to walk up to people, introduce ourselves and put our faces and our names to whatever cause we believe in. You get to choose your cause, but you have to choose something.Why do we let those who are against change intimidate us? Silence us? I never get the feeling that those who are against gun sense are concerned about appearing impolite or pushing their views on others. We’ve let them be louder and more demanding. That needs to change.
The sad part is that they cannot get the numbers of Moms they want. But there is a good reason for it: They are out there at gun ranges, practicing with their guns because they know no amount of marching or banners or comedians will actually matter when a criminal comes calling.
After decades of preaching about “empowering women,” the Left suddenly realized mothers took the word at its original meaning and figured out it is them who are the first responders. It is them that must be responsible for their own safety, not 911 and not some judge after the crime. They tried to sell the idea that victim is cool and it backfired. And the worst part is that theses new mothers, will raise a new generation under the same principles of self-empowerment which will be the death knoll of “It is cool to be a victim.”
True feminists refuse to be victims.
PS: Moms Demand keeps drawing crowds, don’t they?
