“War on Women” Fears are Waaay Overblown
What do you fear? And are your fears realistic – could they actually happen?
Do you worry about the nasty contents of an airplane toilet splashing down as you’re enjoying an ice cream cone at the local street fair?
Out on the golf course, do you fear a croc will gallop out of a water hole and clamp onto your leg?
In life, every day we instinctively categorize the possibilitiesfor personal disaster. If we are sane, we are not equally afraid of everything.We just can’t live that way; we would quickly become twitchy, then bonkeroonie. Our evaluation of life’s risks is ongoing,but it must be realistic. As we get in a car, or strap on a parachute and jump out an airplane, or even poise a fork over a salad we’ve just unbagged, we may unconsciously ask ourselves, “Is a tragic outcome possible?” Well, yes, anything is possible. And then: “Is a tragic outcome likely?” Probably not.
As thinking women, this is the standard we must apply to theDemocrats’ media-revved hysteria that the Republicans, and specifically the Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan ticket, want to take away our birth control and force us to have some rapist’s baby.
