Feminist admits abortion is a form of birth control&compares to removing a cavity

My response to Amanda Marcotte, one of the most vile feminists I’ve read in awhile on her column The Real Debate Isn’t About “Life” But About What We Expect Of Women, where she compares having an abortion to having a cavity removed and rants about why she hates babies and never wants one:
Amanda Marcotte

If we all work together to come up with real choices for women — better birth control, better maternity leave, subsidized daycare, a living wage, flexible work schedules, better schooling options, more attractive open-adoption and temporary foster care options, etc. — abortion may roll itself into the world of obsolescence, regardless of its legal status. 

Ah, doesn’t that sound nice? We give women more opportunities to leave work early for their mothering duties and some gold-plated day care and perhaps some re-education camps (don’t say that out loud) and eventually, they will succumb to our soft coercion and know that having a baby is what they really want, like they should, because all ladies love babies—and all ladies want a baby right now because they are so cute—because they are ladies. Well, let me just put a stop to this shit right now. You can give me gold-plated day care and an awesome public school right on the street corner and start paying me 15% more at work, and I still do not want a baby. I don’t particularly like babies. They are loud and smelly and, above all other things, demanding. No matter how much free day care you throw at women, babies are still time-sucking monsters with their constant neediness. No matter how flexible you make my work schedule, my entire life would be overturned by a baby. I like my life how it is, with my ability to do what I want when I want without having to arrange for a babysitter. I like being able to watch True Detective right now and not wait until baby is in bed. I like sex in any room of the house I please. I don’t want a baby. I’ve heard your pro-baby arguments. Glad those work for you, but they are unconvincing to me. Nothing will make me want a baby. And don’t float “adoption” as an answer. Adoption? Fuck you, seriously. I am not turning my body over for nine months of gaining weight and puking and being tired and suffering and not being able to sleep on my side and going to the hospital for a bout of misery and pain so that some couple I don’t know and probably don’t even like can have a baby. I don’t owe that couple a free couch to sleep on while they come to my city to check out the local orphans, so I sure as shit don’t own them my body. I like drinking alcohol and eating soft cheese. I like not having a giant growth protruding out of my stomach. I hate hospitals and like not having stretch marks. We don’t even force men to donate sperm—a largely pleasurable activity with no physical cost—so forcing women to donate babies is reprehensible. This is why, if my birth control fails, I am totally having an abortion. Given the choice between living my life how I please and having my body within my control and the fate of a lentil-sized, brainless embryo that has half a chance of dying on its own anyway, I choose me. Here’s another uncomfortable fact for anti-choicers: Just because a woman does want children doesn’t mean she wants them now. Maybe she’s still got some fun-having to do. Or maybe she has a couple already and, already well-educated about the smelly neediness of babies, feels done with having them. Either way, what she wants trumps the non-existent desires of a mindless pre-person that is so small it can be removed in about two minutes during an outpatient procedure. Your cavities fight harder to stay in place. So, reading those three paragraphs above? I bet at some point you recoiled a bit, even if you don’t want to have recoiled a bit. Don’t I sound selfish? Hedonistic? Isn’t there something very unfeminine about my bluntness here? Hell, I’m performing against gender norms so hard that even I recoil a little. This is actually what I think, and I feel zero guilt about it, but I know that saying so out loud will cause people to want to hit me with the Bad Woman ruler, and that causes a little dread. Why do we feel this way? What kind of training and socialization did we receive that made us think there’s something terribly wrong about a woman who is hurting no one and is actually pretty nice but wants what she wants in her private life and doesn’t apologize about it? Is there a reason that we should bully women into pretending that they’re more interested in being selfless and eternally nurturing than they actually are, even at great cost to themselves? Would we be even remotely close to as upset with a man who said he’s too invested in his bachelor lifestyle to consider having a baby? Is the pressure that’s dished out to women to serve at great cost to themselves just oppression, an attempt by society to extract labor and other goods out of women without giving them compensation and respect for it? Or is there some rational justification for it? Now that is an interesting conversation, for those who are interested in free-wheeling discourse where we tackle the hard questions. Far more interesting with far more unexplored dimensions than the tedious “when does life begin” discussion that goes nowhere and is deliberately constructed to be circular to avoid having the real conversation. Gender norms and conformity are fascinating topics of discussion, for those who pride themselves on being brave and leaving no cow untipped, no hard question unasked. So let’s get on that, and drop rehashing a non-debate that’s been had so many times that reading it threatens to cause death by boredom.

I should hope someone who hates kids like her never has them. Hopefully she abstains and is responsible enough not to risk a pregnancy. Abortion isn’t meant as contraception/birth control. The original argument was in cases of rape…even though Roe V Wade was passed on a lie, she was never raped. Now they want abortion on demand for any reason regardless if the mother was raped or has a so called ‘life threatening’ complication. It’s disgusting and reflects the true feminist agenda is to use abortion as a form of birth control and an excuse to avoid personal responsibility, while endangering themselves and killing an innocent and defenseless human being in the process.

Schools Can No Longer Suspend School Bullies

As Obama declares he will start enforcing laws with his pen and phone, therefore bypassing Congress and unilaterally implementing regulations and creating laws at his descretion…we find out more about the direction he wants to take our schools.

New York Post

Last month, President Obama declared he’ll “act on my own,” that he doesn’t need Congress to exercise his power.“We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation. I’ve got a pen . . . and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions,” he asserted. “One of the things that I’m going to be talking to my Cabinet about is how do we use all the tools available to us.”He’s already made good on his promise to act unilaterally — delaying the ObamaCare mandate on businesses again last week and changing the rules for immigration enforcement.But what Obama didn’t say is that, behind the scenes, he’s radically increasing the government’s reach. His tools aren’t laws or even executive orders — it’s thousands of new pages of new rules in the Federal Register, the nation’s official book of regulations, controlling everything from home finance to car deals to city zoning.An unelected, unappointed shadowy network of leftie advocates are rewriting these rules — posing a direct threat to Congress’ legislative authority. Yet alarmingly few lawmakers are aware of its clout. Likewise, few in the private sector know about its unchecked power and influence over business and finance — or even local housing and school policies. 

“Schools can’t suspend bullies”
One troubling new area of regulation: rules for discipline at your children’s schools, so that teachers can no longer kick students who misbehave out of the classroom. They’re relaxing the protocols for punishing even violent kids, compounding fears about classroom safety in a post-Newtown world.”


With this new revelation… It’s no wonder Obama and other democrats oppose school choice, they want to control not only what our children learn but how we discipline our children. Somehow for a former Constitutional scholar he has forgotten his oath of office to the Constitution, which states in Article II that he is responsible for enforcing laws,he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed, not rewriting laws or creating new laws without the legislative branch. 

As parents it is our duty to stand up for our children and decide what is best for our schools and their safety. Keeping disruptive students in class will only hinder a successful learning environment and will only reward bad behavior. We must fight against these new policies and regulations that lessen the standards we expect of our own children and demand better from our schools, the federal government and those who are responsible for enforcing the laws in our country.

Will America Become Muslim?

The expansion of Islam is already well underway. But if you are thinking, “Let’s strengthen the NSA, CIA, FBI, and the armed services,” forget it. This expansion is demographic and is being carried out by ordinary Muslims, not terrorists. Nevertheless, it does have serious cultural implications. Simply said, Muslims are out-reproducing Christians and Jews, among others. That […]

The Illusion of Security

      Lauren Sandler, a proponent of having one child, writes a predictable piece in a predictable news magazine, Time, about he joys of stopping at one child. She’s on to something. According to the USDA, a child born in 2011 will cost an average of $234,900 to raise to age 18. If your [...]

Hundreds of California Sex Offenders Go Missing Under "Supervised Release" Program

I came across this article today which says “Hundreds of California sex offenders go missing under new law“. 
I thought what have they done now, let convicted sex offenders lose under the sequestration threats Obama made? 

However, this release turns out to be under a 2011 law that was put in place by the Democratic CA Governor Jerry Brown, but like the release of thousands of “low level” illegal immigrants recently released through the DHS and ICE, these sex offenders have also been equipped with GPS devices, which can be removed and disabled.

I wonder how many of those thousands of illegals that were recently released will remove their GPS tracking devices and how many more child abusers and convicted felons will be running the streets endangering Americans?

Fox News: “The number of paroled sex offenders who are fugitives in California is 15 percent higher today than before Gov. Jerry Brown’s sweeping law enforcement realignment law took effect 17 months ago, according to figures released Wednesday by the state corrections department.

The increase amounts to 360 more sex offenders whose whereabouts were unknown and who were not reporting to their parole officers last year.

An Associated Press analysis of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation data shows that 2,706 paroled sex offenders dropped out of sight in the 15 months since the new law took effect in October 2011, compared to 2,346 in the 15 months before realignment. The numbers were obtained by the AP before their public release.

That’s an average of 180 sex offender fugitives each month, up from 156 before realignment.

Attention has focused on parolees who cut off or disable their GPS-linked ankle bracelets, meaning that parole agents are unable to track their movements by satellite. Sex offender parolees are required to wear the tracking devices under Jessica’s Law, approved by state voters in 2006.[which CO recently voted against passing]

The governor’s realignment law sends lower-level offenders to county jails instead of state prisons and was enacted in part to conform to a federal court order to reduce the inmate population.

Before the law took effect in 2011, those who violated their parole by tampering with the devices could have been returned to state prison for up to a year. Now they can be sentenced to up to six months in county jails, but many are released within days because local jails are overcrowded.

Some county jails refuse to accept the parole violators at all.

Raising Heroic Children In An Anti-Heroic Age: Pt 2
