Another great post - I'm reminded of Tracy Chapman's Rape of the World.
Leah, this analogy sickens me as it should because there is so much truth in it. There are single women who have not leased their lands to the gas companies and are concerned about the potential of violence from the workers, landmen, gas companies and the community who wants them to lease. Those who do not lease are considered potentially abused if not physically then mentally and emotionally by being called: stupid, selfish and unpatriotic. I am afraid that consequences to both the earth and women will be suffered by our grand and great granddaughters.
Oh my. The feeling of fear from the encroachment is palpable in what you wrote. Thank you for sharing this very real experience of some women living in the gaslands. Be assured of prayers for protection and allies to stand in solidarity.
Have you heard the Tanya Tagaq song "Fracking"? Metaphoric...
