Kingman Letter: Women, stand up to the haters
Stand up and shout out ladies. You do not need to be intimidated and should not be silenced by the bile of a drug-addicted, slobbering, woman-hating shock jock. You must all defend your rights and all the gains the great women of this country have fought for through the past two centuries. The men - real men who have respect for real women - do not want the subservient dormice that the religious right fanatics describe.
You, and all of humankind, cannot relinquish control of life to the testosterone/Viagra-fueled ridiculous old white hairs that would put you in long dresses and scarves and our world in permanent war. This insane, macho one-upmanship must be stopped and your strength is the key. You must stand up to protect your rights to control your bodies, your careers, your place in this society.
Contact your Congressman, your candidate, your President and tell them all enough! Enough of the outrageous attacks on women to show how far right you can reach, that you must be equal partners with ideas, hopes and dreams of your own that are as important and well founded as any and that going back two centuries is not an option.
You stand up and we who love you stand up with you.
