Okay, so I have spent a good amount of time since the midterm elections bemoaning some of the douchebags who made it in to office. However, in this post I would like to focus on the positive for the sake of both my sanity and the sanity of all my fellow feminists out there.
First of all, "a historic 106 openly gay candidates have been elected to office this year." Yay for political views, not homophobia, dictating how people vote!
Secondly, Colarado luckily voted down "the so-called 'personhood' amendment, which would define 'personhood' as beginning at 'biological development' in an underhanded attempt to restrict women’s access to safe abortion services and reduce their reproductive agency." Yay Colarado for standing up for a woman's right to choose!
Please leave more positive results of the midterm election in comments.
