Texas State Legislature and Its Rampant Sexism

Olivia Messer has an excellent, long piece on the rampant sexism of the Texas State Legislature over at the Texas Observer. Eye opening and horrendous, and as one of the commenters asked, why are the male legislators looking at porn on the floor while they’re getting paid by tax payers to be representing their interests?!?! Call and email your reps people, or get your relatives still living in Texas to call and email their reps. You may also want to call and email your rep for the state you live in just to make sure everyone is one the same page about this behavior, or any of the behaviors Messer describes, being intolerable.
