Vasaris, the Fuzzy Dragon [userpic]
Texas state senator Wendy Davis officially makes my list of seriously awesome people

And I want to have TX State Senator Leticia Van de Putte's metaphorical babies.

"At what point must a female senator raise her hand or her voice to be recognized over her male colleagues in the room?"

Brava, madam senator. Brava, brava, bravissimo.

You know, in the 1700s, a group of intelligent, brave men re-ordered the world as we know it by demanding no taxation without representation. Over the last hundred years, women and minorities have been echoing the spirit of the demand hat drove the birth of a country. In many ways it's a tenet of faith in our system to demand the equalization of privilege, and a voice recognized by those in power.

May we all remember the power wielded by words and steel determination. We have the same inalienable right to be heard and to resist as those who would oppress us. #standwithwendy
