Rep. Norma Torres is TIRED. As are we all, Congresswoman.
Today she took to the floor of the House to express exactly how tired she was, and why.
Welp. That was a bold choice of words, but she's not wrong. Look at the women in the video raising their eyebrows, looking down and smiling, as if to say, "We are ALL tired." Listen to the quiet, then crescendo of male voices in the background calling for order, as if to say, "Did she just call us sex-starved?" As if that was the worst part of the accusation.
Rep. Rob Woodall, the "Gentleman from Georgia" sought recognition, got it, asked if perhaps Rep. Torres wanted to withdraw her words, and she answered very slowly, because we need to speak slowly to these people,
Girl. You know she relished that chance to repeat that. Then she looked over at said colleague with eyes that, honestly, should have incinerated him immediately but somehow, still, there he stood. Then she continued on with the crux of her statement, which I guess I should include here, though, I'm pretty sure everyone reading this knows what her point was.
Truly, how many different ways must these anti-choice lawmakers be told that a woman's reproductive life and decisions are none of their damn business?
