Tomi Lahren Is Pro-Choice, But Not A Feminist | Gurl.com

By | Politics | No Comments

 

Over the last week or so, people have been abuzz over the news that the internet’s favorite blonde, bold conservative woman–23-year-old Tomi Lahren–was suspended and subsequently fired from her gig as young conservative loudmouth for The Blaze, a right-wing website. Tomi usually does fiery video commentary of her hot take of the day, like calling women’s rights protesters “snowflakes” or saying that Beyonce’s song “Formation” is “unfair to little white girls.”  Why would someone who isn’t some alt-right, conservative, Trump loving individual even know who she is? Because her videos constantly go viral on Twitter and Facebook; the more racist, the more clicks. Even I’ll admit to hate-watching her videos whenever they popped up on my Twitter feed. The fact that she’s a conventionally attractive white woman doesn’t hurt her notoriety either. If you haven’t seen her on your feed, you might know her from her controversial appearance on The Daily Show a few months back, in which she tried to defend some of her most racist, Islamophobic comments to date.So, why did she get fired? Because she revealed that she’s pro-choice on The View. She defended her stance by claiming that it coincides with her politics as a conservative and a lover of the U.S. Constitution: “I’m someone that’s for limited government. So I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies. I can sit here and say that, as a Republican and I can say, you know what, I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well.”

I hate Tomi Lahren. I can’t even listen to her voice without wanting to punch her in the face. No, I’m not advocating violence but this woman is a racist asshole who if she ever came down from Dallas to San Antonio, I would be hard pressed not to slap her in the face. This article pretty much breaks down why white feminists need to stop applauding Tomi. Just because she may have had one point doesn’t erase the rest of her awful racist behavior in the past.

I’m Alive!

I have been sick for a week and believe me I am more than happy to be functional and back to work. This week I’m really behind on the blogging, so I will be doing my damnest to catch up.  As for my real life, my family is recovering for a harsh strand of the flu. Everyone was sick and it was not pretty. My little boy had to stay home from school for three days and I barely got out of bed last week.

This month has been hell. I did not have happy Valentine’s day.  And then the babies we were going to foster until my other sister got out of prison both ended up dying due to complications. It’s just really sad all around, and I feel a bit guilty because I was not really looking forward to fostering them. I have five children, and I’m just barely managing to assemble some type of career outside of that and I was angry at my sister.

But I never wanted those babies dead, I just wanted their mother to raise them.   I wanted to grow up healthy and happy with their mom. It’s just all very heartbreaking.  But my sister has managed to deal with the grief of losing her children admirally and with more grace than I know I would be  exhibiting right now.  I’m so proud of my sister who didn’t let her grief over her childern backslide her into downward spiral and is trying to make a better life for herself.

Valentine’s day was my mom and my stepdad’s twenth anniversary and it was very much a low key affair.  Honestly, I’m awe that anyone can be with someone that long, I personally can’t see myself being with someone for that many years.

As for my career, well you guys see the new theme? It’s all nice and professional and a complete upgrade from the free wordpress theme I was using.  I decided to transfer my art back to my main site because it was too many sites to manage in the end and this felt simpler.  I’m back to making art, and studying to try to expand my skills by learning Adobe Indesign.  In the end I want to sort end up opening my own web shop here of my art and promote my name as an artist.  So I will be doing that more consistently over the next year or so.

I’m also writing again, and hopefully I can hone my skills into something that I can eventually publish my own book one day. I found this awesome writer’s group and they have been so encouraging and they have answered all my questions.  I also found some damn good beta readers who has whipped my writing into shape. I will diffidently keep you guys updated on that as I progress with it.

Anyway, that is everything for now. I see you guys later!

 

 

Donald Trump

Congratulations Donald Trump For Being America’s Douchebag In Chief!

Seriously, this freaking election cycle has worn me down so much that I had to literally had to reinvent my entire website so I could rant ad nasueum about the gross stupidity and bat-shittery of Donald Trump and his campaign of lunatics. It’s like the world decided that I didn’t have enough assholes to talk about right now *cough* Cassandra Clare *cough

But no, a bunch of dimwitted angry white people decided to make the worst underqualified person ever to be a Republican candidate for the Presidency of  the United States . In my opinion, this shit has been a long time in coming, but I thought that maybe the Republican Party will finally get their heads out of their asses and actually listen to the 2012 election ‘Post Mortem‘ report. But  that shit just went over the Republican party’s head. I totally blame Paul Ryans, John Boehner, Reince Priebus  and Michael Steele for the current clusterfuck we are currently in. These jackasses made the disastrous decision to put the party’s money and support not behind the moderate Republicans who actually want to actually work to take this country forward, but on the assholes who want to to take us back to the freaking dark ages. That glamorous time when minorities were treated more like second class citizens.

Republican-leadership

I’m also putting a good portion of the blame on the mainstream media who normalized this asshole. I’m looking at you NBC the producers of the Apprentice, and CNN who gave this douche bag millions of dollars in free publicity.

But this weekend has to be the nuttiest part of the election so far.  I’m serious, people ignored the mountain of evidence that Donald Trump is a misogynist, racist, homophobic bigot, who by the way already has a rape case currently in legislation, but now the audio recording from ‘Acess Hollywood’ in 2005 was too much for the party of family values.

Apart of me is cackling loudly and triumphantly, because this is finally the validation that every free-thinking liberal and progressive far as the eye could see has been screaming about since at least the Convention.  Yet, it really pisses me off that the mainstream media just sat back and Donald Trump gets this far in the election.

And it’s been proven not only by the rape case, not only the way he’s perves on his own freaking daughters, the alleged rape of his two ex-wives, and now the ‘Acess Hollywood’ tapes that if Donald Trump hadn’t been a  rich white guy, he would have been in prison. Or do I need to bring up the Central Park Five case?

And the media is doing it again in my opinion. Donald Trump won the debate according to the Chris Matthews and the Young Turks, and I have two words for you guys: Fuck.You!  I have watched and read the transcripts of the debate and he might have been holding it together in the first five minutes, but after that, everything was zero policy and a bunch of word soup.

And don’t get me started on how he exploited the alleged rape victims of Bill Clinton’s for political points.  Now, I’m not saying that Bill is innocent, not at all. What I’m saying is that I don’t know the real story, because they are not enough solid facts. The feminist in me wants me to just take Juanita Broaddrick at her word, but the skeptical in me thinks about the whole impeachment circus and how staunch Republican Ken Starr was looking under every nook and cranny to find something to impeach then-President Clinton with.  And even Ken Starr really couldn’t find any hard evidence to support Broaddrick ‘s story.

However, all that distracts from the fact that it was completely irresponsible that Donald Trump would use the victim’s traumatic experiences to score cheap political points. And I find it hypocritical that Trump is screaming about Bill’s alleged rape case., he continues pretends that he empathizes with the victims when he himself denigrated the victims when the scandal first came out.  In the end, this is all about Bill Clinton, and it’s sexist and grossly unfair to judge Hilary by her husband’s actions.

In the end, All I can say is that all of us need to start rounding up everyone we  know, and get out there and VOTE!  I’m especially looking at you all you minorities.  You owe it not only yourself but your entire country to vote. Don’t let this Cheeto-dusted douchebag become our next President.
