Suffer the Women

 

In the push for trans rights, inclusivity,  and tolerance, one group is expected to sacrifice and kowtow more than any other: biological women. Both straight and lesbian women — the language they use to identify themselves, their safe spaces, their dating preferences — are all under attack in ways we do not see happening to men.

This week, the Randolph High School girls’ volleyball team was punished for speaking out against a transgender student in their locker room. This student, who is unnamed, allegedly made inappropriate remarks to the girls as they were changing. When the girls spoke out, they were not only put under investigation for “harassment” (under Vermont law, a student can go into whatever bathroom/locker room that matches their “gender identity”) and the team was relegated to change privately in a single bathroom stall.

Rob Long is in for Jim, Join Rob and Greg as they discuss why American feminists don’t have much to say about women in Iran risking their lives for freedom – and when they do it gets really weird. They also groan as President Biden names the wife of his chief of staff as a “diplomat for plants and animals.” Lastly, they get a kick out of lefties finally realizing that “Latinx” is only hurting their efforts to win back Latino voters – only to come up with an equally absurd name and declare war on Spanish language articles and pronouns.

Join Jim and Greg as they eagerly welcome a poll showing Republicans with a 21-point advantage in competitive House districts. They also shudder as more signs emerge of a worsening economy from – from energy to housing to hiring. And they discuss the left and the media branding incoming Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni as a fascist. But since the left now tars anyone who disagrees with them as “fascist,” the word has lost much of it’s meaning.

Join Jim and Greg as they marvel at Israel selling an air defense system to the UAE, demonstrating the success of the Abraham Accords and best chance at stability in the Middle East. They also cringe as Russian soldiers are going house to house in eastern Ukrainian provinces, forcing them to vote in favor of leaving Ukraine and joining Russia.  And that’s on top of Vladimir Putin threatening more directly than ever that he might use nukes. Finally, they call out the “gender-inclusive” insanity at the Air Force Academy, where cadets are encouraged to stop using words like mom, dad, boyfriend, and girlfriend.

The overturning of Roe v. Wade has led to a flurry of commentary, and wondering, “Where next?” But, it also begs deeper questions: what is the history of abortion and sex-positivity within the feminist movement, and how did Roe affect our views on sex? Feminist legal scholar Dr. Erika Bachiochi is the founder and director of the Wollstonecraft Project at the Abigail Adams Institute and a fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. Here, she discusses these questions as well as her recent book on Mary Wollstonecraft, The Rights of Women: Reclaiming a Lost Vision.
