Some things that I get angry about

I was reading an article the other day in the Wall Street Journal about a law that the Taliban was trying to pass in Afghanistan and I got so angry that the saying ‘I could feel my blood boiling’ was rattling around inside of me. The article was about how the Taliban were trying to pass a law that women were going to be told that within their marriage they had to have sex every four days and that their husbands could demand it (with the exception being, no sex if they were having their period). ARGH!!!!!!!!!! This is so wrong on so many levels. What was even more irksome to be was that there were women who were agreeing with this and surrounding the women who were opposing it. Dave and I were talking about it later and that helped me at least give voice to my anger, frustration, upsetness (I know this is not a word) with the whole thing. I am angered by the absolute love of power that men would even think up such a ridiculous law and that women would think they had to follow it and not see the injustice in all of it. I have no clue or idea or thought as to what, if anything I can do about this, so I’m writing here about it and praying. Whenever and wherever people are oppressed, in my opinion, there is an abuse of power going on.
