The Opinionated Bitch – On Equal Opportunity vs. Equal Outcome

I know, gone for a week and then post twice in two days.  I warned ‘you people’ when I started this column I’d write whenever the mood struck me.  I’ve been moodstruck. Dateline August 11, 2012: “We look at one another’s success with pride, not resentment, because we know that as more Americans work hard, take risks, succeed, more people will prosper, more communities will benefit. And individual lives will be improved. America, America is just more than a place, though. America is an idea. It’s the only country founded on an idea. Our rights come from nature and...

The Opinionated Bitch – Dear Conservatives, I Got the Memo

It’s been a busy, busy week of messaging from the Right-wing this week and I want them to know, I got the memo: I’m a lazy whore who feels entitled to everything in life and take no personal responsibility for myself.  I get it.  Women can be so disgusting. Vice-Presidential candidate Paul Ryan was a featured speaker at the Values Voters Summit and he talked about “The Makers” and “The Takers”, a subject we’ll delve into shortly.  The very good folks at Think Progress alerted me to another group at the Values Voters Summit who call themselves “Modesty Matters”. ...

The Opinionated Bitch – On Intellectual Dishonesty

The Republican National Convention is over and I for one am exhausted.  You see, I’m considered a polished researcher.  Facts and figures are my stock and trade and I’ve long prided myself in being able to back up the opinions proffered with at least three independent sources.  Public figures and politicians alike have hired me to ghost write speeches and short remarks on their behalf, primarily because I understand the power of words and language and understand the impact they can impose on others and truth is something I prize above all else.  One politician in particular hired me...

The Opinionated Bitch – On Why It’s Not About Rape

My visceral response to Missouri Congressman Todd Akin’s ridiculous commentary on Sunday regarding “legitimate rape” and a woman’s ability to secrete something in her body that would prevent pregnancy, was to mock his stupidity and I did plenty of it.  A good nights sleep and a pot of coffee later, I awoke to the revelation that his views run far deeper than the tin foil hat thinking so common among Conservatives.  This isn’t a discussion about rape at all.  This is a continuation of the attack on women’s reproductive rights.  It’s about abortion. Todd Akin’s quest for power has...

The Opinionated Bitch – On “The Talk”

Parents have this uncomfortable moment in their lives as their kids grow up when they know they’ll be forced to have “The Talk” with their prepubescent children about sex.  They dance around the questions and hope the kids will just figure it out for themselves until the middle of the night comes and peaceful slumber is interrupted by nightmares of the consequences of their children’s ignorance.  Fears of becoming a grandparent at 38 are sobering enough to make the most nervous parent suck it up, sit their kids down and do the dirty deed.  Most times, the kids will...
