Abortion: ‘Men’s Best Friend’

 

I’m borrowing my title from the punchline of Dennis Prager’s latest piece about Dobbs and the difference in sexual natures between men and women. Is it too late for a Spoiler Alert?

I confess, I’ve taken my eye off the ball of saving babies to revel in the feminist leftwing lunacy on display.

I mean, honestly, what’s not to LOL at singularly unattractive women threatening to forgo sexual intercourse? I suppose there are singularly unattractive men who will be disappointed… For about two weeks, max.

Does this mean “abstinence” is no longer a dirty word? You know, like when pro-lifers wanted it taught in sex-ed classes to their children (sidebar: public education shouldn’t be in the business of teaching about sex anyway! It already sucks at teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic)

And speaking of words, I think we need to define some terms:

  • abstinence is refraining from doing something. Like some Catholics who refrain from eating meat on Fridays. So pro-aborts are threatening to abstain from intercourse unless they actually want to make a baby. Geeze, if only pro-lifers had thought of that.
  • celibacy is when you refrain from sexual relations and you’re unmarried. So, rbecky69420, who posted, “I’m entering my celibacy era,” probably didn’t mean it. She’s probably already unmarried. Plenty of women who seek abortions are unmarried. They’re fornicators, but they’re “celibate.” Only roughly 15% of women who seek out abortion are married.
  • chastity is a moral step up from all of the above and even married couples who have intercourse and are open to new life are “chaste.” Chastity is the (morally) proper use of one’s sexual faculties. For a celibate priest, that means abstaining from sexual activity of any kind. Sex within marriage has the purpose of both procreation and attaching husband and wife to each other. Particularly husbands to their wives and to the children they produce, when their sexual nature would have them spread their seed around. Which is why same-sex marriage is such a farce. There’s no chance of children being produced, so the attachment between the two men or two women isn’t all that consequential to society, even if it’s “nice” for the couple.

This is the Big Lie of feminism and the sexual revolution, generally. Men and women are different in their natures, sexual and otherwise. Abortion is poison for women (sometimes literally) and a huge gift to sexually irresponsible and predatory men.

Women can’t have consequence-free sex, either biologically or emotionally. Turns out, women are made to be mothers and, once they are, they need men to be supportive of them in that role. Which is why I find pro-abort activist men so icky, even if Meghan Markle thinks they need to “be more vocal.”

“These are decisions that affect relationships, families, and communities at large,”

I think I just said that, Meghan, you ignorant slut.

Abortion liberates men from taking responsibility for the women they impregnate. Duh. Women would be so much better off if we were cherished and supported for the gift Nature (and her God) has given us of mothering the next generation. And the men who do that? They need to be honored and appreciated, too.

    Thank you Jean. I’m sincere when I say I have laughed more daily watching the lunatics in action since Dobbs than I have in years! God forgive me, I’m enjoying this. I figure it can’t last, since this isn’t heaven, but dang! The entertainment value is high!

    Western, if I read you correctly, the robust and varied sex life that Dr Mrs Doc Robert and I enjoy, which brings us together and attaches us as a licit married couple, constitutes a state of chastity.

    She will be so excited to learn this!

    Of course abortion only benefits men if by “benefit” you mean “financial benefit,”and only if they are, as you say, “sexually irresponsible and predatory,” and even then I would argue that in fact they are harmed, if for no other reason than that their bad behavior is rewarded.  Plenty of men have suffered the loss and pain abortion entails, but I take your point.

    DEAR EDITOR: Should you consider this post for promotion, you might want to edit out the “Your terms are acceptable” meme, since I “borrowed” it from the web and jiggered it into a .jpeg to post here. Don’t want to step on anyone’s toes.

    Who would have thought an entire generation of American women would go from from Sex And The City to Sense And Sensibility with a single SCOTUS ruling?

    Nice to see the Dobbs decision causing so many young people to think seriously.

    Samuel Johnson famously said of a man’s imminent death: “It concentrates his mind wonderfully.”

    Turns out, so does life.

    If they need to be talked about (and I have my doubts), I don’t think the talking needs to be done by pro-lifers. Talk amongst yourselves. . .

    The same could be said of “The Pill.”  Which I also think liberated men from sexual responsibility just as much (if not more) than it did women.  I do understand (or at least, I believe) there’s a degree in difference there, between “the pill” and “abortion.”

    But I think the harping on feminism, and the mockery of the left-wing, ugly-feminist, lunacy has often missed the point, to the detriment of the wider cultural issues.

    Yes, that’s why I’ve confessed my sin here. Just reading the headlines induces hoots of hilarity in me. I’ma gonna need forgiveness. . .

    Curious, though. Do you think feminism is a wide cultural problem?

    Feminism is the widest cultural problem of the 20th-21st Centuries.  Feminism has led to the down falling of Western Civilization, first and foremost by its encouragement of the disparagement of men.  The opioid crisis, fatherless homes, crime, “critical race theory”, can all be laid at the feet of feminism.

    Okay, I have to ask: Is the picture accompanying this post for real ? I mean, are those people in earnest or are they some overweight Conservatives posing to make fun of the idea that men would necessarily be disappointed that the leftist women are taking up abstinence ?

    On the other hand, I’ve noticed quite a few single mothers who look just like that.  Some of them have half a dozen kids or more, and I used to read about them having trouble finding big enough Section 8 houses for all of them.

    Couple of days ago, I read Dennis Prager’s post and had the same thought. (I love Dennis Prager but don’t entirely agree with him.) So what besides feminism made abortion seem more acceptable than it would have been at a time earlier or later than when certain people began to push for it ?

    (1) Inability to see the unborn child the way we can see him or her today.

    (2) Manufactured fear of overpopulation. That fear had been growing since the late 1960’s.

    (3) (among the people pushing for it) Belief in the rightness of limiting the number of people that people like Ruth B. Ginsburg didn’t want too many of. (I think we still had (and have) Eugenicists. They just had learned to vehemently deny that they were any such thing. They saw abortion was a way of going about it obliquely.)

    (4) The pre-feminist Sexual Revolution.  We had a RIGHT to consequence free sex. Maybe the invention of the pill came out of that belief and desire, but the pill also spread that outlook and strengthened it. The unplanned, unborn child was violating our RIGHT to have sex without consequences.

    (5) Youth worship and death denial. Kids make you older. Having kids forces you to acknowledge your mortality.

    I’m sure there are other things.

    Curious, though. Do you think feminism is a wide cultural problem?

    Yes.  

    But I also think the term “feminism” has many forms and meanings, and deploying it in a similar way that people use the term “Nazi,” or “racist” often renders it meaningless.  The first and second-wave feminists’ agenda was different from that of today’s feminists, and there were, in both cases, women willing to defend them intellectually and intelligently. The last couple of waves have become increasingly unhinged from reality and it’s almost impossible to have a rational  debate with their proponents, as any disagreement from outside renders them incoherent with rage (it doesn’t take much disagreement, for “rage” is pretty much their normal state).

    Along the way, women who call themselves “feminists” have also adopted the word without either an historical perspective or a common understanding of what it means.  So a woman who believes in equal pay for equal work might call herself a “feminist” without assuming any of the movement’s other baggage.  But when people froth at the mouth and condemn feminism, she’ll feel the sting.  A woman in a marriage in which she considers herself entirely the equal of her husband might call herself a “feminist,” because she doesn’t believe in submission to her husband, and she’s chosen to work outside the home  (although they may have a lovely marriage, and be excellent parents to their 1.4 children).  Denigrating “feminism,” she thinks, is an attack on her.  Fifty years ago, women who wanted their daughters to have the same educational and athletic/scholarship opportunities as their sons thought of themselves as feminists.  (That’s largely how we got Title IX.) Today, those feminists are being attacked by the “new” feminists who want to marginalize women and impose an intersectional world view on absolutely everything, including things like school sports.

    I am hopeful that things have reached such a ridiculous and damaging point that women who have been floating along in their own pleasant self-defined little ‘feminist’ bubbles for the last few decades (I know many, many of them) will re-engage and actually bother to find out what is really going on, and just how bat-guano insane things have gotten. It’s time for “feminism” to grow up and face the world.  It’s probably also time for the Right to stop dancing around the issue and clarify what it does and doesn’t believe about equality between the sexes as a matter of public policy.
