How the #MeToo Movement Hates Prison Women


There are many women on death row who are smart, believe it or not.  They enjoy timely, relevant, topical conversation just like any other gal. One of the things I keep hearing from many of them is that the #MeToo Movement is a bunch of hooey. Not everyone, inmates such as Eileen Huber and others who have experienced rape, tend to have a softer feeling for the social movement, but many believe it has worked to stifle a certain element of society.

My friend, Barb, and I were having coffee at The Celtic Cup discussing this very fact.
"You can flirt your ass off and guys are afraid to ask you to dance. This #MeToo bulllshit has taken the romance out of dating and made it hard as hell to get the casual hookup."
The girls in prison agree. There are women who count on their looks and personality to propel them through life. And those who count on their physical assets to gain benefit occasionally. Men are not able to respond to the flirty girl like they used to. "Its like they are purposely trying to stamp us out. Erase our bad behavior." said Barb. The emotional and financial gain some women get from that type of relationship is much harder to find than before #MeToo. There is a certain stigma around women who sleep with more than one man, that isn't there for men. It lets the world know you don't need a man in your life and only chose who you want.

Barb's boyfriend, CC, and bestie and bass player, Syd, both agreed. Syd got so adamant he spilled some of the froth off his latte. The lady at the table next to us paused with her blueberry scone poised mid-air as she stared at him. He wasn't screaming, but huffing and puffing and raising his voice.
She almost dropped her scone.

"Its beyond hard to know if I am just being a sexist pig by responding to what I feel is a come-on, or if I am actually just responding to a legit come-on. Its exhausting. I don't wanna hurt nobody's feelings. I don't wanna piss nobody off."
We're not talking about gold diggers, or prostitutes, just the average give and take that could occur between two people being intimate. 

Our society is forever changed, both positively and negatively by the movement.

Brenda Andrew Execution date

Brenda Andrew is the only woman on Oklahoma death row. She is there for the murder of her husband by her and her boyfriend James Pavatt.

     Brenda does not answer letters. It seems she may still have a bit of that pretentious attitude left over from her days as a respected deacons wife. Those days are over, hun.

     There is no scheduled execution date for Brenda yet. Oklahoma lists its dates of execution for the prison she is in here.

     Every time I read about this case I am utterly amazed at how stupid these two people were. She may as well have advertised their guilt on a billboard in front of the house. Both Andrew's and Pavatt's appeal were systematically denied without comment in 2008.

The little Scorned episode "The Sunday School Killers" at the top of this post is about Brenda and James and its only $1.99 so its worth the money.

Morgan Smith Florida

Morgan Smith. Wow. Just, wow. She came from a family of mental illnesses with a father who committed suicide. She had spent her life on psychotropic drugs for severe depression and borderline personality disorder, the same thing that causes multiple personalities. She also became a sex slave for Daryl Smith in a long-term relationship that ended with a child.

Their relationship was everything the weird, late night, HBO documentaries say those things are. She met him after work and groveled at his feet in a leather outfit complete with chain leash and dog collar. She licked his boots clean and said thank you after he spanked her ass. She was a complete, total submissive, and seemed to enjoy being that way. She even changed her last name to his legally, even though he would not marry her. He had told her many times; no matter what she did, she would never be his wife.

Eventually he found another woman he was interested in, Andrea Stranko, and left Morgan and their
daughter. It devasta…

Texas May Have an Innocent Woman on Death Row

Kimberly Cargill is on death row for the killing of her mentally retarded babysitter, Cherry Walker. Ms. Walker was found burned on the side of a rural road in Texas. Doctors had diagnosed her as mentally challenged in 1995, saying she had the living skills of a 9 year old.

Witnesses, some her own family, testified that Cargill was abusive and violent toward them and to Cherry Walker. Cargill was arrested in 2010 on child abuse charges and a custody trial was pending in which Cherry Walker was slated to testify. The state alleged that Kimberly killed Cherry to keep her from testifying.

Kimberly has always said that she did not kill Cherry but that she suffered from a seizure as she was riding in the car with Kimberly. She had been prone to seizures and Kimberly panicked. She tried to revive her, but could not. When she realized Cherry was dead, she set her on fire in an attempt to rid any DNA from her body. She was certain she would be charged with her death.

She was convicted. She wa…
