Dump Your Wings | Run Fast From Tea Party Exorcists and the Bible Brigade

Will Carine Roitfeld Use Candice Swanepoel For An Angels Shootout in Vogue Paris? Sensually Yours

I wrote in my Sensually Yours column this morning that if I had a young daughter, I would begin working to get her dual citizenship. Simply stated, I am terrified for the future of our young women, not just because of losing our reproductive rights but because of a strong evangelical movement to make men the boss again in America.

The women of America will be split into two camps in the coming years: the Mama Grizzlies and the Snake Charmers. You probably know where I fit in.

I’m not cocky or cute in writing these words. When the state of Utah passes a bill that made miscarriage a felony and it only escaped becoming law because the governor vetoed the bill, I’m very frightened for the young women of America.

The militias are coming for us, making a travesty of the founding principles of this country. Pope Benedict is close behind. And my alma mater Victoria’s Secret wants women to wear wings so big that we can’t run fast from the exorcist in hot pursuit of the devil in us.

Tea Party Propoganda

This is not the America that I know and love, but it is the America I fear we are becoming.

In my crazy but usually correct mindset, I connect dots very well. Call it intuition, soothsaying, whatever you wish. I’ve been very well paid for my visionary skills, and I don’t like what I see for women in America’s future.

Because so much of our AOC material crosses channels but is related, I’ve introduced a new column called MeaningMakers. We’re running it off the front page, but I will also anchor it in those channels where it’s relevant.

MeaningMaker #1 belongs in America.

Corinthians 14:34-35

Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. (34)

And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church. (35)
