Birth rates in Italy have been down lately. That is, the rate of home-grown Italians giving birth to baby Italians has fallen. I know what you’re thinking: Less tots to share my Sbarro with. Remind me again how this is bad? No Italians, no Italy. No Italy means no Sbarro. It also means no Juventus F.C. (Yes, a soccer reference. Sue me.) Worse yet, no awkwardly posed photos of tourists “pushing up” the Leaning Tower of Pisa. It’s a problem for everybody, you see.
So Italy decided to do something about that. They launched a campaign encouraging people to go forth and multiply. Feminists went forth and raged instead.
Italy’s latest campaign to reverse its falling birth rate has sparked an angry response. The health ministry has produced 12 posters in the run-up to the country’s first fertility day on 22 September. [They have] warned of a birthrate “apocalypse” if more Italians do not try for children.
One of the campaign posters shows a young woman holding a sand timer with a phrase saying: “Beauty has no age. But fertility does.”
The campaign though has backfired, with critics branding it an insult…
Here’s some of the response…
The #fertilityday campaign is offensive, sexist and dangerous. I'm ashamed and embarrassed

yes the birth rate in italy is low but that doesn't allow the government to force women to procreate wtf #fertilityday

I'm really hoping English-speaking media picks up on #fertilityday, then the world will be able to see how the Italian state treats women.

Ah, have no fear. An English speaker is here. She’s right, Italy has done wrong by women. But how? After long and hard (that’s not an innuendo, you sexist) deliberation, one can see the root of the problem here. Italy – like most of Europe – has created a climate that caters to these eternal victims. Italy’s created an environment for crappy, third-wave feminism to thrive in. And that feminism? Hurts women. No, really… (read Dear Feminists: Stop Lying. You Really Don’t Care About Women)
Also, a guess? Maybe men don’t want to procreate with some of these whining hags. Long and hard deliberation requires the right partner.
Sexsim vs Not Sexism
Forcing women to be your sex slaves? Sexist. Encouraging women to please have babies so Italians don’t go extinct? Not sexist. Now, if these posters were directed towards men and said “Get your gal pregnant ASAP, stud!” That would be a little rude. It implies that ladies don’t have a choice. But these images? They’re appealing toward the minds of women. Who have control over their own bodies. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say that’s pretty reflective of feminist values…
Apparently there was so much backlash that the Fertility Day website was taken down. All thanks to the raging herd of feminist dumpster cows.

The moral of the story here? Feminists ruin everything. They seem to hate the idea of family (see Liberals Now Say That “To Start a Family” is “Loathsome” and “Offensive”. No Joke…). Maybe because they weren’t hugged enough as children. Maybe because they’re attention-starved, and children are competition. But most likely because the idea of a functioning family renders third-wave feminism useless.
Does it ever seem like modern feminism and the family unit are mutually exclusive? That’s because they are. A man and a woman pairing up to take care of each other and tend to a new life? Waaay different than a woman parading about topless for free tampons at your local SlutWalk.
See, one can’t be an SJW feminist while simultaneously pretending to care about things like family, or children. Motherhood prioritizes somebody else before yourself – your child. It asks, “How can I make the lives of my husband, child, and self better?” Whereas feminism asks “How can I victimize myself today?” One requires effort and integrity. The other requires nothing. Besides a whiny voice with which to make demands.
Anyway, here’s the funniest video on feminism you’ll watch all week. You’re welcome.
