Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! I am on my mobile version of the door-to-door, going town-to-town holding readings/gatherings/discussions of my book "But What Can I Do?" This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels since 9/11 as I engage in dialogue and actions. It is steaming with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society we want ALL to thrive in

The silencing of anti-womxxn men with the voice of the fetus!

So I’ve been quite successful lately in silencing white men who approach me with their anti-womxxn stance. Some of the time they walk up to me and confess, as they sweep long arms in pained confusion toward the missives on my truck, they just don’t understand how I can stand for everyone’s rights but the unborn child.

Ha! I tell them as they bristle with indignation, :Of course you can’t understand, you are a man." Then I pointedly demand to know: “When has a fetus ever spoken to you?” Or sometimes I ask “Have you heard the voice of a fetus? I have! Of course I have, as has every other womon on the planet!”

They all seem to get the same lopsided grin on their faces, shuffling their feet in uncomfortable silence as they consider this or more likely consider how they are going to claim they too have heard the voice of a fetus. Remember, these are the men who claim to hear the voice of an entity that does not exist in human form so they have little ground to challenge me on hearing the voice of someone taking physical shape.

I don’t give them long before I grasp hold of my womb and declare that the fetus speaks to me – and to all womxxn. “Do you know what the fetus says?”

Before they get a chance to regroup, I tell them. “She says ‘Mama, don’t bring me into the world if you cannot afford to provide for me!’ And ‘Mama, don’t bring me into the world if you cannot protect me and ensure that you have the time and energy and resources to take care of me.’ And ‘Mama, I can wait until you are willing and able to make me the center of your universe before you bring me into this world!’”

Men do not hear the voice of a fetus as we do so they need to shut up and listen to womxxn’s voices.
