I hope you enjoy the comic above. I just thought I’d also share my thoughts on the “women’s march”, and 21st century feminism in general. I have a great deal of respect for the recent movement to bring to justice powerful men who have abused women. This includes the #metoo and #timeisup hashtags. I wish they’d organize into a march, one that reflects their principled, non-partisan approach to women’s rights.
However, I have little respect for this so-called women’s march. They call themselves “women’s march”, yet only march for women they agree with. They don’t allow pro-life feminists a place at the table. They don’t tolerate women for Trump. They might say, “but Trump has abused women.” But then I see those “I’m with her” signs, and in addition to all of her husbands sex crimes that she helped cover up, it’s recently been discovered that a woman on her campaign was sexually harassed, and she didn’t remove the man from her campaign. By the same logic that they won’t tolerate women for Trump, they shouldn’t tolerate “I’m with her”.
Which sums up the reason for my disdain for this whole thing. They claim to represent “women”, yet they really only serve a partisan agenda. They seek to manipulate women into becoming DNC foot soldiers. It’s the same trick that many third wave feminists use when as follows:
“Are you a feminist?”
“You mean you don’t believe in equality for women?”
“Well, yeah, I believe in equality for women.”
“So you’re a feminist.”
“So you’re pro-choice, pro-gun control, support punishing employers who won’t pay for all forms of birth control, and voted for Hillary Clinton?”
“So you’re not a feminist?”
“I guess not.”
“Why don’t you support equality for women?!!”
The women’s march is full of partisan hypocrites devoid of intellectual integrity. They demand respect and wear vagina hats. They demand the most stringent sexual harassment laws, then chant and sloganeer about their lady parts. And worst of all, they try to trap women into voting a certain way, and taking a slate of positions of various issues, based on their gender. I respect women too much to tell them that they have to take a certain set of positions because of their gender. As with men, I respect women who earn respect. I don’t respect those whose behavior doesn’t earn respect. With equality comes responsibility, and while I think those who share the #metoo get that, the so-called women’s march does not.
So, am I a feminist? In the Mary Wollstonecraft sense, yes. In the Susan B. Anthony sense, yes. In the Christine Sommers sense, yes. In the Hillary Clinton sense, AW HELL NAW!
