Below is a Facebook rant I went on today concerning my thoughts on Wendy Davis, late-term abortions, and feminism. It’s been receiving a lot of praise for it on my social media accounts, so I feel inclined to post it here on my blog:
As a young woman, I am greatly disappointed in my gender for straying away from femininity. I don’t consider myself a feminist, nor do I want to be labeled as such. Relying on paternalistic, sugar daddy government is antithetical to the principles inset in this great nation. What we see transpiring in Texas with state legislator Wendy Davis should leave every American distraught. Some American women decry they’re oppressed and exploited by men. Some American women scream bloody murder when taxpayers refuse to pay for birth control or abortion. Some American women seek empowerment through victimhood. Some American women bemoan their counterparts for choosing marriage and childbearing. ENOUGH! How selfish people in this country have become. Without a doubt, the mainstream women’s movement is rooted in self-hatred and contempt of womanly virtue. What’s wrong with priding yourself in personal responsibility and individualism? NOTHING. What’s wrong with liking men and babies? NOTHING. What’s wrong with baking and cooking? NOTHING. We on the right don’t believe in “hoes before embryos” or wish our political opponents to be raped for differing viewpoints. Call me self-loathing, call me a slave to patriarchy, call me deranged – whatever – I’m speaking out on this issue because too many people, especially girls my age, complain about the lack of self-respect in society but remain quiet. Abortionistas and their ilk will continue to dominate the narrative if we remain silent. I implore you to find your voice and passionately defend your views. I implore you to confide in the men in your lives and encourage them. I implore you to speak out against big government. I implore you to be silent no more. Ladies, don’t settle for less.
