So.. Women Should Not Be Punished For Breaking The Law?
In our opinion NZ media spend far too much time on the US ‘primaries’ (that many media incorrectly refer to as ‘the presidential race’). We guess it’s cheap and NZ media have lucked in when it comes to Donald Trump because he can be quite entertaining.
The Trump issue that arose yesterday highlighted some frightening trends. Trump expressed his opinion that if abortion were to be made illegal then women who procure abortions should be punished. This apparently was so unacceptable to women that he soon recanted and decided that only the abortionist should be punished. That is the first frightening thing, that feminism can stifle reasoning and opinion so readily that even the chest-beating Donald Trump is humbled. (Probably not a good move for Trump either, to be seen as so spineless and unauthentic…)
Women make up 53% of US voters so politicians can’t afford to say too much that would turn them off. But really, if most women would be turned off by the idea that women should be punished for breaking the law, we see how unequal and dangerous feminism truly is.
The abortion debate per se is largely irrelevant here. That debate will contribute to decisions about legal restrictions on abortion. The issue here is that women want the right because they are women to be able to break a law once enacted.
The argument appears to be that a woman wants an abortion so much she shouldn’t be held accountable for her actions in procuring one. Only the person doing the abortion should be held responsible.
Abortion cannot be compared to drug addiction in which a pusher, sometimes forcibly or surreptitiously, encourages addiction to a drug. There is some justification there to punish the pusher but not the addict, or to punish the pusher more.
When it comes to prostitution the feminists really show their duplicity. They have long called for customers to be punished but not the prostitutes. Prostitution is comparable to drug addiction, the prostitutes being skilled at tempting customers and doing things that provide such powerful pleasure responses that it’s not unusual for men to behave as addicts, turning to prostitutes either regularly or from time to time as a response to elevated life stress. Unlike prostitutes, the people performing abortions generally don’t flaunt themselves to tempt customers and don’t appear to promote abortion in any way. It’s the customers who press for their services. Yet for abortion the feminists don’t want the customers to be punished because they are female, while for prostitution they want the male customers to be punished because they are male but not the sex pushers because they are female.
This kind of stuff emphasizes that nations kowtowing to feminist demands are doomed to fall under corruption and civil unrest.
