Two things..


The outrageous comments made by Megyn Kelly this morning on Fox News was ‘thing one‘ while the Michigan Legislation passing a ‘Rape Insurance’ bill was ‘thing two‘.

Yes. Two things that made me feel uncomfortable and angry.

The Supreme Court decision in India around Section 377 was upsetting but not emotional to me. Perhaps, not living in India is the reason for me not to discharge that kind of anger or passion. Or, Perhaps, the hope that the government will do something to amend Section 377 is another reason. Either way, the two things that caused me react today are very different. They triggered a certain kind of anger in me, which I am unable to put in words.

Megyn is an individual and she has the right to voice her opinions. Even stupid ones. So, yes, I can ignore her comments and move on. Easy. Can be done.

But I can’t do that after reading about the bigotry with which the Michigan Senate passed a discriminatory legislation today, forcing women to buy additional insurance (pay more) in case they want to cover themselves for rape related abortions. Unbelievable. This is called taking the state back in time.

So there. My two things for the day…

But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!
