If eight African American women had come out against Roy Moore, their voices wouldn’t of been heard, because Moore is a god fearing, good old Roy and in Alabama black lives don’t matter, but their votes apparently do.

Victory has a thousand fathers but defeat is an orphan. So, who gets credit for the razor-thin victory in yesterday’s Alabama Senate vote and who gets the blame for the loss?

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Feminist Quote of the Day – War between the Sexes – Sonia Johnson

“Men speak humorously, or so they say, of ‘the war between the sexes’—a transparent and guileful attempt to mislead us into thinking that there is a natural enmity between men and women, and that the ‘sides’ are evenly matched.
