Wonder Woman stands for peace, shouldn’t you?
It’s not all glamour and glitz here in the World of Sublime Femmeness. Yes, it’s hard to believe, I know, but I won’t be spending the holiday weekend just reclining on my chaise lounge sipping cocktails. Why, you ask? Because I’m appalled that Congress just passed a war spending bill for nearly $100 bilion that will allow President Obama to escalate the war in Afghanistan. You might not even know about this because the media is giving so little attention to this war.
(A domestic interruption.) Van just this minute shouted from the next room to ask me what I’m doing. When I told her I’m writing about how we need to stop the war in Afghanistan she gasped, “They’re going to think someone else has taken over your blog!”
You don’t really think that, do you? You all know that The Femme Revolution means fighting for gender/sexual freedom, human rights, and social and international justice. (In heels, but still.) I have faith in you, dear readers. Which is why I’m urging you to support veterans’ anti-war efforts and oppose President Obama’s dangerous expansion of this war. Talk to your friends and family about why we shouldn’t be committing more troops and billions of dollars to Afghanistan.
Check out this article, Out of Afghanistan for more info. And to get your Memorial Day weekend off on the right foot, here are some inspiring words from a TV show that was a shining beacon of American democracy:
“Wonder Woman! Now the world is ready for you / and the wonders you can do / Make a hawk a dove, stop a war with love. ”
