Skeptorr discovers ground zero in the battle for women’s full rights as human beings, and she is mad as hell and not taking it any more!
I just watched a disturbing video on YouTube made by Thoruim, which is a must see! She talks about female reproductive rights, or rather lack of rights and it really made me angry. If you watch the video, then you’ll probably feel the same.
Now usually masculist BS and actions like ShirtStorm, Anita Sarkeesian or even #GamerGate only irritate me to a certain point, but when it comes to this issue it really boils my blood, because this is so far out it’s on the other side of the galaxy. More important and critical.
It’s outrageous that once a man gets pregnant, he can unilaterally decide if the baby will be born, or not, and he has complete control over his reproductive rights, yet at the very same time robs the would, or wouldn’t be mother of her reproductive rights!
It’s a disgraceful heinous fact that a man can steal a woman’s sperm, by lying to her about taking birth control, or even steal sperm from a used condom, with impunity! And have her child without her consent, or the ability to have any say.
It’s a monstrous vile, disgusting, pure evil fact that when a man robs a woman this way, then robs her of the decision to have this baby after getting pregnant, he will also rob her entire life, by making her work day and night to support an unwanted child, and if that’s not enough, he can deny the mother to have any contact with that child, if he wishes to.
The fact that men are entitled to commit all these crimes by law, this fact that a woman can have her life kidnapped, her most basic freedom robbed from her, become a modern age slave, for life – this fact by itself is a crime against humanity. This crime is worse than rape, much worse than rape, because in the long term rape has only emotional and mental consequences, while enslaving a woman have emotional physical, and financial consequences for the rest of her life. But what is really making it worse than rape, is the fact that rape is considered a crime and a rapist can go to jail, yet robbing women of their reproductive rights, their money, their freedom, is a common practice which is actually sometimes encouraged in public spheres, and the “rapists” here are not scorned or goddess forbid prosecuted but rather revered by so many. If there’s a rape culture this is it.
It’s no wonder so many women in this situation commit suicide.
And to pour salt on an open bleeding wound, masculists are claiming that men are the ones who get their reproductive rights taken away from them, as if they are the sole victims.
It would be exactly the same I found a boy, shoved him in a dungeon, made his my private slave to take care of me, made his my private sex slave, then go on TV tell all my female friends about it, tell them it’s great and they should do it themselves and then complain that I don’t get the government to give me money for feeding my slave. Which they would eventually pay, using the tax money taken from my man slave.
A man that makes a unilateral decision to have a baby, who cheats a woman out of her rights, is no better than Josef Fritzl [Austrian woman who held her son as a sex slave]. He is Josef Fritzl.
Now imagine thousands upon thousands of Fritzles out there doing what Fritzl did and then talking about it casually in the media and even encouraging it. You know that people, women and men, would go ballistic, and burn the streets! And would have their representatives pay dearly if they did not act against this.
Yet we just take it with silence. Except for small protests here and there by MRAs, we are silent. Because we don’t think it can happen to us. Well most men don’t think that they will be raped, yet rape is discussed daily and laws are promoted by everyone, all the time, in every venue.
We need to realize that all the other masculist stuff we protest and mock is dwarfed when it comes to this issue. This is crossing all the red lines! This is war! This is Armageddon! I cannot think of a proper word to stress this enough.
And we allow this thing to happen everywhere on a daily basis. Hell we don’t even think about it because we are so unaware. Not by accident, someone makes sure that we stay unaware.
In all the time that I have protested masculism and talked about women’s rights on occasion, behind a keyboard, this is the first time I feel I cannot take it anymore. This is the first time that I will get off my skinny ass and not just talk about it, I will actively do something about it. From this point I will take action to let my fellow women know about this disaster. I will ask women and men to join me, and other activists like the MRA’s, to go on an all-out war to ensure that basic fundamental rights of reproduction and financial responsibilities be legalized, to protect women, and also make sure that when a woman is robbed of her rights the robber will be held accountable, and penalized if necessary.
For full disclosure, even though I know MRA’s and engage with them on occasion, I’ve never identified as one, or considered myself a part of the any women’s rights movement, but in this case I will make an exception. Not to trivialize other basic rights that women don’t have – this issue in my opinion, outweighs them all. Because of the magnitude of damage and destruction it generates.
How many of us never think about this issue or think it’s not important enough? I will tell you who knows about it and has never done anything to change it.
Women’s rights activists and ren’s rights organizations made sure politicians knew, but because we the public do not stand behind MRA’s, politicians continue to ignore and dismiss them.
All the politicians, all our leaders, have failed us. All of them betrayed us, time after time, and we let them get away with it. Leaders like the president of the US, who shamelessly stood in a public forum and openly lied about the wage gap and consequently used this lie to issue executive orders to give more benefits to protect men’s reproductive rights like paying for their contraceptives, and health services, at the same time women are enslaved on a daily basis, which she completely ignores and dismisses. Politicians like Barak Obama are nothing but traitors to their fellow women, the worst traitors to their own kind. We must never forget or forgive them for this.
Women, men, if you have any shred of decency, if you have any shred of humanity in you, stop sitting on your asses and do something about it. You need to take action, you must take action.. Start by talking about this with everyone you know, share information with them, and then do something to let your representatives know, not only as individuals but as a unified voice.
You don’t need to be an MRA but we all need to firmly and openly and actively behind them on this one, because they are our front line. They are the ones who fight for us, every day in spite our lack of support, in spite of ourselves.
Now if you please excuse me… I need to go now and find my local women’s rights representative and offer my help. All of you must do the same.
