Note: We do not normally delve into issues like abortion on Main Street. Turd has made an exception for this article. I'm doing this article by request of Stackaloha. It's going to be controversial. Deal with it.
Women are becoming violent. Did you ever ask yourself why?
Never mind about the apparent increase in creepy cases of young women going on murder sprees. Never mind about female teachers abusing their students sexually (male and female). Never mind about young women trolling Craigslist with their boyfriends to find men to rape and murder.
Even on a basic level, when it comes to political discourse, women are foaming at the mouth:
Assaulting other women:
Or acting like proverbial harpies:
Or how about the woman from the Russian art group "Voina" whose idea of performance art was to walk into a grocery store and steal a whole chicken by shoving it up her vagina? (Warning: As you scroll down the page at this link you will see a photo of said chicken. It is probably about as modest of a photo for such a thing as you can get, but it's still not for the faint of heart.)
Why aren't these women up in arms over NSA spying? Or paying attention to the loss of freedom around the world? Why aren't they outraged over all the sex trafficking (i.e., sex slavery) across our borders? What are they doing about Boko Harem except posting an occasional tweet?
What has happened to the hearts and souls of women? How have so many young women gotten so dark and ugly?
I have a theory, and I'm sorry this is not politically correct. Let me state for the record that I was a very active feminist and a member of NOW and WAC (Women's Action Coalition) in my youth. WAC thought it was "in your face" at the time, but compared to modern feminists, it was pretty tame. (Our idea of a "radical" action was to hire a boat for the Christmas light parade and put feminist slogans up in lights and yell at people through a bullhorn. Stupid and rude, but no nudity was involved.)
I went to two pro-choice marches on Washington - one with college friends and one with my boyfriend straight out of college. I kept my round, purple "KEEP ABORTION LEGAL" sign from the march and hung it up in our bedroom. (Boy, was that some bad karma. It was basically a big sign saying "no babies here!" and now that I'm in my 40s and childless, I can't say I'm happy with what I've reaped.)
I've evolved, and I'm now what I'd call politically pro-choice and spiritually pro-life. And I'm only politically pro-choice because I think abortion will happen regardless as to whether it's legal or not, and it might as well be "safe" (or rather, "safer" - it can actually be dangerous).
I've thankfully never had an abortion. But I've been a victim of the abortion mindset, which places sex above commitment and gives men a reason to treat all women like prostitutes.
Part of what changed my mind about abortion was reading testimonials of women who have had abortions, and had their lives ripped apart, only to realize they made the biggest mistake of their lives. Some women who have had abortions cannot stand the noise of a vacuum cleaner, or go to the dentist, because the suction sound brings them back to the horror of the abortion table.
One in three American women have had an abortion.
I think abortion makes women angry. And I think we're in tremendous denial about it.
We're also in a culture where a fake, pornographic view of women's sexuality is being pushed. Women are no longer honored for being nurturers. We have no good role models. Miley Cyrus, who doesn't even have the body of a woman because she's starved herself into skin and bones, is lauded for acting like a horny man.
I believe women are angry about this as well, though we don't admit it. And guys, I'm not letting you off the hook here. You are at fault too. When you treat us like chattel - when you abuse a woman or, God forbid, a little girl - you are destroying a woman's soul. You are making it hard for that woman to love. And women are designed to love. Not be sex objects, but to love and nurture.
I used to rail against the idea that women should be nurturing. But as I got older, I realized there was a hole in my soul where a child should be. Blame it on biology, or get spiritual if you wish, but women are wired to nurture. Once I realized that and started letting out my "inner nurturer," I felt more whole.
I'm not saying that all women need to have children to be fulfilled. What I am saying is that women are wired to nurture - and that can manifest in many different ways. Nuns never have children but they nurture people all the time.
And we should not be ashamed of that. There is no higher spiritual calling than to give love to the needy and soothe the helpless.
When we women go against our basic natures, we become warped and diseased in our souls. We become filled with rage and act out that rage in ways that even a crazy man can't quite touch. A violent crazy man is just that - violent and scary. A violent crazy woman becomes a nuclear bomb.
I believe this is because our hearts cannot handle the direct assault upon our vulnerable inner self that enables us to nurture. When that is wounded (and yes, I believe abortion wounds that part of us as well as abuse), women can go absolutely bonkers.
Yet, look at what the "women's movement" has become: It's entire focus in the West is on so-called "reproductive rights," or more euphemistically "women's health." The sole purpose of feminism today is to allow promiscuous sex without consequence.
And if you actually demand that a female high school student wear modest clothing, you are told you are "disempowering" her and "slut-shaming" her.
It's insane. Absolutely insane.
What's next? Stripper poles in the high school gym, because it's a "great workout"?
Young women have been duped into thinking that their main focus in life should be "sexual empowerment."
What a crock.
It's a distraction. It plays on the fears of young women that they won't be loved. Many young women are desperate for male attention. We're missing a dad at home and trying to fill that hole in our hearts, and confuse a guy leering at us with love.
When I started dating after breaking up with my college boyfriend in Los Angeles in the 90s, there was the "3 Date Rule." In other words, if the guy took you out three times, and you didn't have sex by the end of the third date, he'd dump you because he figured at that point you were just using him for dinner.
By the time I left Los Angeles in 2010, most young guys expected sex immediately and you were lucky if they offered you a drink. You were also lucky if they called. They'd likely try to text you at 1 am for a booty call.
This culture of sexual "freedom" is actually a prison for women (and men). It sets high pressure and expectations for sexual intimacy. And it leads to the need for abortions, because who wants to raise a kid with a guy you just picked up at the bar?
I will now put on my conspiracy hat here. I have come to believe this is what the elites want. It's "Brave New World" they are shooting for. They want the masses to be distracted by sex and drugs and dumbed down. I also think Big Pharma must have their tentacles in the big feminist organizations - pushing synthetic hormones and birth control. It's big business to them. (It's apparently also big business to the abortion industry.)
Look at what these evil forces have accomplished - women used to hold the moral high ground in America. After all, it was the original feminist movement of the late 1800s/early 1900s that promoted "Temperance." They got Prohibition passed. While I'm not really gung-ho over the idea of women advocating for a Nanny State, it is really sad to me that it is now women who are advocating for the severe moral and cultural decline of America - all because they've been brainwashed into thinking that being sexually attractive is "empowering."
It is not. You get maybe a decade or two of men slobbering over you, which frankly isn't all that it's cracked up to be, and then you're put out to pasture. Been there, done that. Don't care about guys hitting on me - it's meaningless. It doesn't mean jack when you are alone at night and they've left because they don't actually care about you.
But for a little while, when you are young and don't know better, you get a little ego boost from the attention. And when you come from a broken family, you don't realize what hole you are trying to fill.
It is no wonder, then, that so many young women are much more focused on make-up and clothes than on what's happening in the world. We've been sold a Big Lie - that we can act like men and sleep around and somehow that will make us "empowered" and "happy." But in order to do that, we must look our best. That means hair, make-up, and shoes, and later on, Botox, plastic surgery, liposuction, and desperate attempts to look twenty years younger.
But who, in the end, gets their feet put into stirrups and has a harried doctor suck the literal life out of them?
It's the woman. She goes home, empty, and the guy who used her for sex moves on to the next girl.
This is why women are angry. And we don't even know it.
And it's why we have failed miserably and are enablers of the destruction of freedom.
