President Barack Obama is signing into law a bill extending and expanding domestic violence protections, ushering in a legislative victory for gay rights advocates and Native Americans.
The law strengthens the criminal justice system’s response to crimes against women. White House press secretary Jay Carney called the extension “a very important milestone” that would give law enforcement new tools to respond to domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking.
The world is no longer a romantic place. Some of its people still are however, and therein lies the promise. Don’t let the world win.
I think the world is in big, big trouble. We laugh at people aspiring to romance. We celebrate hookers under the guise of feminine autonomy.
