VP Joe Biden tweeted this in honor of “Women’s Equality Day” yesterday: “I will not rest until my granddaughters have every single right my son & my grandsons have.”
I take great issue with this statement. Historically, equality in the American sense has been understood to be equal opportunities for all to succeed and reach their greatest human potential. The leftist interpretation of equality means (and usually translates to) equality of outcomes–a perverted idea, when implemented, that leads to a morose society and (inevitably) millions of deaths. (Just ask my family and everyone else who witnessed this ‘equality’ in their native homelands mired by tyranny.)
Much to the chagrin of VP Joe Biden, the most oppressive thing an American woman can experience, if anything, is the wrath of big government controlling her from cradle-to-grave. Before you decry “American women are oppressed!” look elsewhere and thank your lucky stars that you live here in the country, despite everything that’s happening here today. We American women have it exceptionally good here in the States.
Men and women have equal opportunities-not equal outcomes-in this country. Achieving full equality to men means becoming more biologically like them. If this is what leftist ‘equality’ aims to achieve, I don’t want any part of it. Men and women are different, unique, and serve their respective purposes. Both genders should be afforded choices and opportunities without the government telling them to how to conduct their lives. If my fellow females think government-subsidized birth control pills are the standard bearer of rights, we’ve surely lost our way as a Republic.
