Sad, Shameful Saturday

When women cried, no one cared. When a white man cried, he got a seat on the Supreme Court. Now those are powerful, privileged tears. What a sad, shameful day for America. We’re one of the most advanced countries in the world, and yet we still leave our women behind.

When I read the final result on his confirmation, I felt so helpless and hopeless. I closed my phone and watched my wife nursing our newborn. The love and the calmness between them helped subsided my anguish. The only thing I could do was to give her a kiss on her forehead.

I wanted her to know that she is respected and appreciated. Seeing her popping ibuprofens and acetaminophens to relieve the pain from the gruesome C-section hurt me so much. The confirmation of a man who is accused of sexual assault to the Supreme Court is a big blow to women. Fortunately, my wife does not let politics affect her. Emotional wise, she is much stronger than I. Yes, I am the bitter bitch in this marriage.

Then again, I can’t do anything other than vote. Vote is the only way to fight back. I can’t wait til November 6.
