“Hi, my name is Any Woman, and I was a prostitute in the infamous Storyville section of New Orleans, and my voice from the past is here to warn you that one hundred years later there will still be Republican men who will do everything they can to keep you voiceless and subservient. Fight with all your might until we get equal standing. And while you’re at it, try to knock some sense into those women who are so clueless that they continue to vote for misogynistic men who totally disregard their worth…”

Previously published in “Crusty Pie”, circa 2016. No changes made as most of the men in the current Republican party haven’t stopped being bitter since women got the right to vote, circa 1919. Photo by E.J. Bellocq, circa 1912. Sharing this post again in response to Alabama’s recent passing of legislation, already signed by the governor, that will almost entirely outlaw abortion, even in the case of rape or incest.
I am once again agog, circa 2019, at the lengths some people will go to in order to take away the rights of others, especially when it involves personal decisions that do not affect the usurpers in any way.
Thanks for listening. We’ll be back with the funny in the next post.
