Freedom to be a Woman: A Reason To Celebrate!

Happy Birthday, America—especially to us women!

The 4th of July usually means celebration of our democracy, independance and freedom all revolving about the pursuit of happiness. We can choose our religion, or even choose no religion, choose leaders, our laws, where we wish to live, how we want to live…we have so many choices, all coming somehow together into an organized chaos that we call our home land.

I’m taking just a little time the next few days to be thankful for living on this side of the world. Think of the millions of women, just a few thousand miles away, that are physically punished just for wearing nail polish or lipstick in public, or for that matter, showing any visible sign of feminity or sensuality. Some say it is done in name of religion.
Others proclaim that it is a way of controlling the uncontrollable urges a man would have if women were not controlled.
Even more proclaim it controls obscenity.
They are true obscenity!!!!

Could you imagine what would happen if these women had or went to a sex toy party there? Oh wait, some of those countries do NOT even allow ANY sex toys into their country to begin with.
Oh, silly me.
They would have beheaded me years ago…that would have been hard to live with ; )

Tomorrow, I intend to paint my nails red, put on red lipstick, wear bluejean cut-offs along with a low cut tee shirt, pull out an American Flag from the closet and proudly display it on my flag pole at my OWN home.

I love you, America.
Thank you for being my home.
