The "War on Women": A Disturbingly Self-Centered Charade

1:29 pm - 04/29/2012
Yesterday the bra burning, GOP loathing, whiny feminazi’s gathered together for rallies all around the nation to protest the Obama Administration’s unrelenting delusional claim of a “War on Women” waged by conservatives. All over the twittersphere, self-proclaimed feminists used the hashtag #UAWOW (Unite Against War on Women) to share their spiteful, angry thoughts about the GOP and to complain openly about the “rights” these women are being denied (or, their incapability to be independent women and purchase their own inexpensive birth control at their local pharmacy). As I read these incredibly shallow and bellicose tweets from the army of laughable womyn, I began to feel a deep sense of disappointment in my own gender. Whatever happened to the self-reliant, empowered women that felt pride in the rights that they should feel gratuitous to have?

Frankly, I’m not even sure these women know what rights are. To the feminazi’s, rights seem to be the hypocritical demand that government give them a right to choose, while at the same time petitioning that the government give them free birth control. They’ll claim that the refusal of free contraceptives is a “denial enforced by a misogynist government” or “an attack on womanhood”. Some women demand free birth control so that they can go about and be sexually free, while some countries perform clitoridectomies on their women to deny them their sexual freedom. THAT is a true attack on womanhood.

Liberal women have gone so far backward in their thinking that they’ve completely forgotten how privileged we truly are. What about the women in Afghanistan who feel the tyrannical rule of their governments everyday? What about these women who can’t drive, obtain a job, or show any sense of individuality? In some countries, you face possible death if you don’t behave like a subservient non-being. Since when did not being handed contraceptives on a silver platter by our government equal being stoned to death?

This attempt to correlate “rights” with free birth control is not only utterly absurd but entirely insensitive and ignorant. Every day in third world countries our gender faces true ridicule and misogyny from their patriarchal societies. These women would do anything to live in a country laden with so much freedom like our own.

As conservatives, we’re told on a daily basis that our ideology is nothing but snobbish and lacks the compassion towards others that liberalism apparently entails. But isn’t the complete neglect of the rights we have in America, and the selfish demand of something we should deal with on our own a lack of compassion towards women who truly have NO rights? Let’s be honest, it’s a downright slap in the face. For an ideology that claims to put humanitarianism at the forefront of their agenda, they sure do worry an awful lot about themselves.

As a woman, I feel that my government has granted me the rights I deserve and feel entirely grateful for the way in which society treats me. I would never demand that Uncle Sam hand me a package of Yaz or Seasonique when I have two feet and a Walgreen’s close by. The current behavior of feminists who claim to speak for myself has entirely disgusted me and, I hate to say it, has embarrassed me to be a woman. I have a message for my fellow females: grow up. There is absolutely nothing “independent” or “empowering” about commanding your government to provide you with something that frankly isn’t even a necessity. Next time you decide to chant and parade around with signs that read “Second Class Citizens”, envision a helpless Afghan woman who gets the living daylights beaten out of her for simply being female. Feel unequal now?

You know, along with being generally obnoxious, this article has a terrible grasp of grammar.

Yup. "feel gratuitous to have"??

Exactly what jumped out at me. Perhaps "Grateful?" She'd still be WRONG, but at least not semantically meaningless because of incorrect word choice.

Hah, came here to say this - if you can't use apostrophes properly, I'm not reading your stupid little diatribe. Feminazi's? ARRRGH PET PEEVE.

She's seventeen. No wonder.
layweed 30th-Apr-2012 01:27 am (UTC)
Um. Seventeen? as in 1-7? I'm sorry, but what in blazes does a 17 have writing this type of shit? She's probably still living in her parent's house, free from ACTUAL REAL SRS BSNZ RESPONSIBILITIES.

eta: oh god, I just read the bio on the website. She's a high school sophmore or something.

If you click on the source and scroll down a bit you can see her advertising it on her Twitter. She's a seventeen year old conservative.

She's seventeen? What.

And her political inspirations is Ronald Reagan and Sarah Palin.
layweed 30th-Apr-2012 01:30 am (UTC)
Hahaha. I'll admit, I read Ronald Reagan's autobiography back when I was in like 7th or 8th grade, but it's not like I aspired to be him. Good grief.

It looks like all the bloggers on that website are still in high school. And they have great bios like "Austin is a high school student in North Georgia. He enjoys running, tennis, aviation, shooting, American History, scouting, Jesus and many other things leftists can't stand."

I'll have to tell my agnostic liberal husband to stop enjoying guns. And my Jesus-loving Girl Scout daughter to stop being liberal.
