soapboxin' it up.

There's still plenty of time for you to go out and vote today- because if you already haven't you damn well should.

Seriously. This little lady wrote her 8th grade term paper on suffragettes in the United States. Let's talk about that fact that I am still angry that women haven't even had the right to vote in the United States for a century, and that ANYONE with so much as a vagina would consider not exercising that right. If you're thinking it's not a big deal to vote, ponder this: not too long ago, you wouldn't have been allowed to, sister friend.

Whoever you are, regardless of gender, don't let your fear of voting blind stop you. It's so easy to garner information about candidates and their policies nowadays- just go online, get some info, crystallize what you want this government to do, make some notes, and go act like a goddamned American. Vote.

If you like, you can even go to this handy guide and learn who in your area isn't an anti-choice dipshit. I know I certainly did.
