My wife sent me this link yesterday. It’s worth the read. It kind of embodies everything that the feminists are crooning about currently. We’ll see whether the blogger allows my response to come out of moderation (copied and pasted below). Want to take any bets?
“— if you ask me. “
Who did, for that matter? Your narrow-mindedness astounds me. Feminists don’t like Sarah Palin because she is incapable of being the victim. If women empower themselves, the feminists’ fight is over. We can’t have that, can we now? What meaning would your life have if you couldn’t piss and moan about how we men are trying to keep you down?
Like many Conservatives (and Liberals for that matter), I think that you have the right to do whatever you want with your own body. By that rational, I think seat-belt and helmet laws are stupid, and it is asinine that suicide is illegal. I also believe that murder is wrong. If there was a way to level the playing field and have a calm, open discussion on the issues and implications of abortion, I would be all for it. But, when you take the attitude that the opposition is “anti-choice” and put words in other people’s mouths concerning your anatomy, you make yourself look like a narrow-minded fool.
I don’t go on and on about what you people think I should do with my penis. Come to think of it, I’ve not heard any self-respecting man piss and moan about anybody telling him what he should or should not do with his penis.
Just for the sake of argument, say Joe Somebody met you in a bar, drinks were had, and you made it home to Joe’s house. You got pregnant and made the choice to have the baby – just for the sake of the argument. You contact DHS and have Joe served with papers, because he’s the dad and you want child support. What choice does Joe have? He doesn’t. This seems like a double standard, doesn’t it?
Why is it that in our society, women get to choose whether or not they want to be a mom after they have made poor decisions, but men do not get afforded a similar luxury? To that end, why are you still bitching?
Get over yourself. Nobody is making you do anything.
