You cannot claim to be “pro-woman” if you support free birth control but deny a woman’s right to defend herself. There, I said it.
Listen to the left long enough and you’ll think all women care about is keeping their uteruses empty. “Women’s issues” to the left is birth control and abortion. Access to birth control. Access to abortion. Oh, and the myth that women get paid less than men, while then demanding women should have all kinds of paid maternity leave because the free birth control failed. Whoops, there’s one more issue the left uses in conjunction with women: rape culture.
Except when a woman is in real physical danger, not make-believe danger of being without condoms or birth control pills, the left abandons women completely. Free condoms? We’re here for you babe. You want a gun? Oh no, you can’ have that, guns are EVIL!
Leftist logic: My body my choice for abortion (YEAH!!!) > Gun to project myself from a psycho (NO!!!).
Yeah, that makes sense.
Why Taylor Woolrich Wanted a Gun is a lengthy article over on BuzzFeed about a young woman being stalked by a dangerous, creepy old white guy who harassed her and freaked her the heck out. A low life scumbag. A predator who terrorized her for years. A regular Mr. Rogers.
So Taylor, who didn’t want to get raped, killed, chopped to bits and thrown in a dumpster (she’s high maintenance) thought “Hey, maybe I should like, arm myself with a weapon in case this creep tries to, I don’t know, KILL ME.” But Taylor’s progressive school, Dartmouth, said, “Nah, you’ll be fine. It’s a gun free zone here, sister. Take a mocha chill. You want some condoms though? We’ve got the hookup so you can hook up!”
Maybe I’m just crazy, but how does that make sense?
Victim status, people. Tis better to be a victim than to take care of yourself, even defend yourself, especially if you’re a woman. The left, who is constantly beating the “men are evil scumbags of the Earth” drum, wouldn’t let this poor woman have a gun to protect herself from an evil scumbag of the Earth. Because the left knows better than you. The left can take better care of you than you can take care of you. You should know that by now.
But hey, leftists are pro-women because birth control all around! Fund Planned Parenthood! The pay gap myth!
Pro-tip for the ladies: if a man tries to assault you, snap one of those free condoms in his eyes. That’ll teach him.
