Seriously though, some of the most vile people I have ever met in my life have been devoutly religious people.
If Xians get objective and honest, they’ll quit believing in their myths. But most, it seems, don’t care. They like believing what they do because it’s easier than the alternative.

Why narrow it down to just women?

We all die
I’m so fucking sick of people.

Louis C.K. telling it as it is!
Watch the full monologue here!
who wants to be the first one to say it?
I will. What about black people? The Voting Rights Act wasn’t passed until 1965. Democracy is 94 years old my ass.People don’t seem to realize that Black women exist. The white suffragettes, white Second Wave feminists and some Black male activists from the Civil Rights and Black Power Movements treated Black women like shit and even censored them. And Black women are still fighting to have their humanity and contributions acknowledged.
Black men could legally vote before any woman could.
There’s no mention of black men here…
With the mention of the Voting Rights Act, which does not give anyone the right to vote, it merely enforces no discrimination. Black men had the right to vote in 1870. Therefore Louis is right in saying democracy is only 94 years old because it wasn’t until 1920 that all citizens had the right to vote, legally. Obviously, racism was an issue otherwise the voting act wouldn’t have needed to be passed, but still, technically everyone could vote by 1920.
(not trying to step on any toes or diminish the reality of how bad it was for any minority to vote, just talking legality)
Legality is a moot point if it’s pointless, which the passing of the 15th Amendment in 1870 was for a good bit of time. Yeah, legally everyone “could” vote by 1920, but even then, everyone wasn’t allowed to, hence the need for the voting rights act. And if we’re basing our Democracy on voting rights then we still aren’t one, because there are still Republicans actively working to deny people their right to vote. So, 94 years is STILL off!
Look at the greater point here. CK is a comedian on a comedy show in this gif. He’s not making a huge political stand. He’s making a joke. Yes, a topical joke, but a joke nonetheless. The point is that America isn’t as great as we think it is. We think we’re the land of the free where everyone is equal, but we’re not. Minorities are still viewed with prejudice, and that’s the point. America isn’t what it’s claimed to be. And that’s why we need to work to make it better.
