The Bad Boys Have Been Here For a While, But They’ve Got to Go!

Dear readers,

Unfortunately, there are bad boys messing with the Denver Women’s Chorus efforts to raise money for itself and keep going. There was an incident involving a security guy from 9 news who was taken into custody by Denver Police, and worse off, I got an email from the president of the chorus stating that our fellow chorus member’s event could not be used to sell shirts, so she changed the location twice on Facebook. I want to say that this whole Proud Boys, Boogaloo Boys, whatever thing is so dangerous that it is now hurting DWC’s efforts to encourage the human rights of LGBTQI+ individuals in the vote. Voting is so important, and let’s explain the logic here.

If we don’t vote, imagine yourself unable to purchase your own goods and services because you’re female and can’t own property. Why do you wonder? Because a government official in the Boogaloo Boys might have been elected over your choice of candidate. This man might be sexist enough to say that women are property, and can therefore hold no property.

Imagine a world in which you were good for nothing but cooking, cleaning, sex, and having babies. Imagine the Proud or Boogaloo groups taking over the country’s economic infrastructure, taking away a woman’s right to work outside of home and shopping jobs. Imagine that you’re the maid in a rich white man’s house, or you could picture yourself as a handmaid. Even if you have a no dick policy, that doesn’t matter to the creepy old man who insists you have sex with him every week during a sacred brutal ceremony. For more, read the Handmaid’s Tale. Atwood’s predictions are scary, and they seem to be coming true in some areas, but not others. But here’s what I want as far as the voter stuff.

I want to own property, not be the property.

I want to type this blog and not be the one for whom everything is typed. I want to be the one expressing her thoughts, whether content or discontent, of the government. I don’t think violence is the answer, but what I want to see is a peaceful resolution, but moreover, arrest of all the Proud Boys and Boogaloo Boys involved in messing up my friends’ rally. DWC wants to raise money for itself, and it’s a community chorus. Women should have the right to sing nonsacred works, but in a Gileadean or Gilead like society, women will only be aunts, supplicant aunts singing praises to a patriarchal God. The Lord God Almighty this or that will be the only thing passing a lady’s lips.

Also, I am wondering why so many guys would ruin a rally for my friend in the DWC in the first place. These guys made it unsafe to sell t-shirts at the event downtown, so … and I heard gunshots in the distance. Who’s shooting who??? Here’s more about my rights though.

I want the right to marry the man of my choosing, not some stupid commander dude.

I want the right to be with Trenton, regardless of race or ability.

I want the right to access any social media or streamed media I want. This means Hulu, Netflix, Disney Plus, Prime Video, etc. No more of this thinking that females should never have access to that plus money and food stuffs.

I want safety in my own home and community, a safe place where the police don’t brutalize my friends and partners, where I can walk around and greet the warm and friendly people about me. Please, if you go vote, think about the world you want for yourself and your daughters and granddaughters and especially what you want to tell your sons. He or they will need the best information on being good to women, consent, and so on. Black men are the best type of men in my experience, and my current is the best because he looks at me, regardless of my color, like a queen. I’d rather be treated like a queen rather than a handmaid. Think about this for a few moments. If you’re a lesbian, you should think first about the rights of your friends, your fellow butches and fems, whatever you identify as. Think of what kind of world you want your daughters and sons and grandkids to live in. I doin’t want my daughter stolen from me, made into a wife, and not allowed to read or write books and blogs. So, this is all of why voting is so important, and why the rallies and all that are so important. I want to encourage the DWC girls to look carefully at the writings here in this entry, and if you want to steal it, just give credit where credit is due.

Thank you all for your support in this blog, and please for goodness sakes, go out and vote.

Beth
