Feminist SJWs are such profoundly stupid people they think there is such a thing as a right to an abortion in the US. There isn’t. The landmark Roe v. Wade ruling says that a woman’s constitutional right to privacy must be balanced with society’s interest in protecting human life, that until a fetus is viable outside the uterus the decision to have an abortion is a private one and therefore protected.
I agree that the compromise Roe represents is a great model for thinking of the issue, but it clearly has its flaws for absolutists on both sides. The pro-life side says that even a non-viable fetus is sacred human life and abortion at any point after conception is murder. The pro-choice side thinks viability is irrelevant and abortion on demand must be a “right” up to the moment of birth.
But there are at least two major forces at work in our society that will undo Roe v. Wade and render it moot regardless of who is on the court—one on each side of the compromise.

Hello? The main plot of Harper Lee’s iconic novel revolves around a false rape accusation, and the main message was essentially not to judge a book by its cover (mostly race in this case). But despite generations of avid readers, “Anti-racism” and “anti-sexism” are now the new racism and sexism. Atticus Finch would never deprive someone of a human right like presumption of innocence based on their race or gender. Maybe they thought it took place in an alternate universe…
1 originating in and characteristic of a particular region or country; native (often followed by to)
As a white person who is indigenous to the United States of America, I wish all my fellow natural born citizens a happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day!
But that makes me wonder, why does the pro-immigrant Left think it is progressive to celebrate native, natural born citizens over immigrant ones?
In case you missed it this week…
- A CERN physicist has committed “unscience.” Spiked gets it right.
- Clapping is now (partially) banned at a UK university because it is “triggering.”
- The National Review had a great piece detailing the Orwellian nature of the Kavanaugh situation.
- When women cry or act naive or like children, my BS detector goes on alert. Is this genuine, or am I being manipulated? Not only does this woman get it, she delivers a call to action.
“It’s up to Women to protect and defend men from gynocentric authoritarianism. I don’t care about the zombie hoards out there. I’m talking to those of you who know what’s right. It’s our time. If you have a brother, a father, a husband or a son, take a stand.”
- In a week of goalpost-shifting and bar-lowering, we now have the all or nothing: If you don’t believe women unconditionally, you don’t believe them at all! Feminists cannot help but make themselves look childish and stupid. All or nothing thinking is a symptom of a cult.
Fortunately, some men get what is at stake.
Hater of the Week
- Connie Chung, as a representative of all women who use the insidious man-hating logic of #MeToo to assume Kavanaugh’s guilt.
LULZ of the Week
- Fake Scholarship. The empress has no clothes! Probably the funniest and most important story of the year.
- Bonus Runner Up: The Alt-right-Russia conspiracy is the reason no one likes the SJW Star Wars!
- Bonus Runner Up: Male feminist goes into “punch a Nazi” mode on a pro-life woman.
Have a great weekend!
“If it requires lynching to protect woman’s dearest possession from ravening, drunken human beasts, then I say lynch a thousand negroes a week.”
—Rebecca Felton, Georgia feminist and first female US Senator, 1897.
“I’m actually not at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations.”

I value human rights and believe men and women are equal. I also believe in basic fairness. “Believe the women!” the mantra of #MeToo advocates and Judge Kavanaugh’s opponents, stands for the opposite of those things. It is part of a toxic archetype pattern that must be embedded deep in the collective female id (they all seem to know the script). It says women are “special,” not equal, yet manages to be misogynistic in its infantilization and emotional manipulation of women. It is also deeply misandrist, manipulating men into depriving other men of their rights or lives. It is worth noting at the outset that “Believe the Women!” operates on many levels in our society, not just in relation to Kavanaugh or #MeToo.
It is no accident that the Kavanaugh confirmation circus is part of the broader #MeToo witch hunt. Something like it was inevitable. Let us hope it is the crest of the #MeToo wave.
It is also no accident that “Believe the women!” is a direct echo of “Believe the children!” from the 1980s satanic cult preschool child molestation witch hunt. Ultimately, the phrase infantilizes women. It says they are not capable of being functional, equal adults, agents who determine their lives and who can deal with adversity, follow rules, rationally evaluate evidence or back up their accusations. They are simply helpless victims. They are children who must be constantly protected, coddled and indulged in the adult world of men. This infantilization applies both to the woman accuser and the women who evaluate her claims. “Believe the women” is real misogyny.
