Yeah, I’ve decided to hitch on what I see as a rather kick-ass W.I.PoC bandwagon in Congress for a while. Mostly because I’m a news junkie and I’m tired of seeing old, white rich dudes rape and plunder their way to wealth and power. It really is a dampener on my infotainment binges.
Not to mention that fact that this wretched cesspool of predatory capitalism and misogyny that’s destroying our planet needs some voices up top fighting the good fight (until we can tear it all down that is).
Yes, they’re all politicians and they’re all eventually going to disappoint sooner or later, but at least with AOC, Ilhan and other immigrant women and women of color in Congress, I’m absolutely certain that they’re not going to sexually assault someone.
I also truly feel like they give a shit about stuff beyond personal gain. I’m not suggesting their egos and ambitions aren’t at play, but I have always found that women in power are able to at least care about others around them to a greater degree than men in power.
Not being a sexual predator and furthermore, actually giving a shit about people around you, is in fact a rather low bar, but it is one that I would like all of my elected leaders to first cross before making any policy changes.
And it seems like most old rich white dudes not named Bernie Sanders are incapable of the same.
So yeah, AOC, Ilhan, et al…you have an utterly useless voice of support in me – a fringe lefty who cuddle-tortures his pets and considers the criminalization of cannabis to be backward as fuck.
All hail our W.I.PoC warriors, wherever they fight those good fights and blaze those good trails.
Brothers and fathers and allies alike – unite in defending the matriarchy.
