Support Reproductive Rights Now, Please

 

DRAW THE LINE – SIGN THE BILL – SPREAD THE WORD

 

Attacks on reproductive rights have become rampant. Hostile politicians keep trying to put women down in their speeches and keep women down through their laws. But when news of a movement to fight back reaches the one person capable of spreading the word to EVERYBODY, a revolution is born.

Glass Halfmindful

MandyLipka is a feminist, a fighter and a great writer. On Twitter, we share a lot of feminist news and videos. Because we share a imilar sense of humor, we post weird ass anecdotes, funny and creepy videos, word mash-ups, and more.

Mandy wrote an extraordinary article about The Penis Files on Glass Halfmindful, feminism and a bit about my work.  Mandy is one cool chick. Check out her blog, where she writes a lot about yoga, mindfulness and feminist news and ideas that make me think. Follow her on Twitter, too. Hello, she’s a riot.

Thanks so much, Mandy! I appreciate you to bits and pieces.

Southern California Voters, Have You Considered Voting For Shawn Stern

Though Facebook can be irky irksome and his twin sister irkarella, we remain addicted to it, just like Twitter. Right? Right.

Because we’re not all new, we know there’s an election right around the corner. Shawn Stern is running for congress in:

  1. Casmalia
  2. Camarillo
  3. Fillmore
  4. Lompoc Valley Los Alamos
  5. Newbury Park
  6. Oak Park
  7. Ojai Orcutt
  8. Piru
  9. Santa Paula
  10. Santa Ynez Valley Simi Valley
  11. Thousand Oaks
  12. Ventura
  13. Un-Incorporated Santa Maria

Shawn left a note on my wall regarding his campaign, so, of course I emailed him with a list of questions – if he wanted my vote, I needed to ask about things that were important to me. And, so I did. He emailed me back. Now, that’s awesome. How many politicians do you know that send you canned responses versus a hand written response? More importantly, I appreciated his answers – they seemed on the level (love that vinty expression).

This was our dish session:

Hi Shawn;

Thanks for your time. You emailed me along with a few other folks regarding recommending you to our friends. I’d consider doing that. I just have a few questions.

I read your website, and I’m not 100% clear on your political position, perhaps you can lend some clarity? Thanks so much.

1) Are you a democrat or a republican?
2) What is your posture on Gay Marriage
3) What is your posture on Freedom of Speech
4) What is your posture on Censorship?
5) What is your posture on Stem Cell Research?
6) What is your posture on a woman’s right to choice?

Thank you so much,
Katie

This is what Shawn Emailed me back:

Shawn Stern May 14 at 4:40pm

Hi Katie,
Thank you for the questions. I’ll try to be as concise as possible.

1) I am a Democrat
2) I believe EVERYONE has the right to be married
3) ALL of our Constitutional rights must be protected. I don’t believe in cherry picking them.
4) Parents should be the censors
5) Stem Cell research will save many lives. I believe scientific progress should be encouraged not hindered.
6) I believe individuals have the FINAL word on what happens to our own bodies. Again, I don’t cherry pick the Constitution.

Hopes this helps, and please tell anyone and everyone you can about the campaign. Without the fundraising I need all of the word of mouth in the next 20 days I can get. So far I am leading at the polls so I guess people really do want someone in congress fighting for them NOT special interest groups and lobbyists.

Please feel free to ask me more questions @

Warmest,
Shawn Stern
Democratic Candidate

Personally, I LOVED his answers. I live in Los Angeles. I’d love to vote for him. How about you? If you’re a Southern California Poli Blogger, consider blogging about this bloke – Check him out – Hit his websites – Follow him on Facebook. I think he might very well be the real deal. We sure could use as much of that in government as possible @JustAin’tRight and @ MockPaperScissors, check him out too, please.
