Fascist Feminism: The Idea That Women Are Too Stupid To Think For Themselves

Fascist Feminism: The Idea That Women Are Too Stupid To Think For Themselves

Marcotte, interestingly, is the same femisogynist who recently supported the decision of the American Academy of Pediatrics to endorse female genital mutilation. And somehow, we’re supposed to believe that she really cares about women’s rights? She cares about women, all right — as long as, in her own words, women stick to a very specific set of women’s issues — and abortion more than anything else. In fact, she cares about abortion so much that she’s willing to lie and cover up the truth about the effects abortion has on women. While the emotional effects of abortion could be debated, the risks associated with abortions are facts. A recent study, for example, proved that abortion more than triples the risks of breast cancer in Sri Lankan women. It’s the fourth study within fourteen months to show a link between abortion and breast cancer. The other three studies examined women in the United States, China, and Turkey and found similar results. And many, many women do feel guilt and regret for the rest of their lives after having an abortion. But who prepares them for all of that?

But because abortion is so super important to women, why bother to be honest and upfront about the risks associated with it? Fascist feminists like Amanda Marcotte do not want women to be informed about the realities of abortion. It’s why they argue against pre-abortion ultrasounds. They know that if a woman is unsure about getting an abortion, and she sees what her baby looks like, she’ll be that much more likely to keep it, and fascist feminists like Amanda Marcotte don’t want women making their own choices. They want women to make the abortion choice, even though women consistently do not get the facts about the reality of what they’re getting into with an abortion. They’re lied to about the biological facts of the child they’re carrying, they’re lied to about the risks associated with abortions, and they’re lied to about the possible after-effects of having an abortion. People like Marcotte ignore all of that, because being pro-abortion is all that matters. Marcotte and fascist feminists like her are not pro-choice. They have the choice already made for women. Have an inconvenient pregnancy? Don’t consider any other options, just have the abortion and get it over with, and no you may not get more information first!

Furthering the pro-abortion, femisogynist agenda is more important than being truthful to women. And this is supposed to be pro-woman?

    Ridiculous arguments like Amanda’s make me laugh. It’s hard to take someone seriously when they draw such stupid conclusions.

    Drug control laws target both men and women. That’s all that needs to be said to unravel her whole screed.

    Of course, if Marcotte would no doubt scratch her head in confusion upon reading this. I don’t think she has the mental capacity to follow the logic train.

  • I R A Darth Aggie says:

    She’s almost kinda cute.

    She lost me when she claimed that a particular laundry basket was representative of the oppression of women because it was curved to fit a pregnant woman’s belly. Given that I have that exact same basket, I remarked on her blog that it happens to fit my beer belly just fine, and that the human body for the most part was a series of curves.

    Naturally, she deleted my comment. But maybe that was because I’m just dumn Aggie, and she went to that large secular school in Austin whose mascot is a cow?

  • Ronald Wilson Reaganowitz says:

    Lefty to the core here, but I agree that Ms Marcotte is an albatross around progressives’ necks. You all can have her.

    And that laundry basket–as a guy, I find that it fits more neatly on the hip (nothing fits a pregnant woman’s belly).

  • Common sense would demand that one not agree that there could be a kind of feminism that would declare the entire female sex incapable of handling the right to bodily autonomy.

    As I usually point out: if men could get pregnant, I would still be pro-life.

    That only women can get pregnant does NOTHING to change the moral calculus of abortion. Nothing. If it’s not okay if men were to get pregnant, it’s not okay because the precious snowflake Marcotte, and not her boyfriend, worries about pregnancy.

  • Oddly, the pro-abortion argument assumes that women are too stupid to know how to use birth control or to keep their knees shut, but I doubt that Marcotte realises that.

    Furthermore, women and men are equally pro-life. What does she say to women who are opposed to abortion – the half of us who are? That we’re stupid? That we can’t think for ourselves? That we aren’t really women? That feminism speaks for us all, but not for the half of us who don’t agree with her?

  • Smithwick says:

    So a self-selecting body of people gets to decide what thoughts and actions are acceptable for women-folk and will work to ostracize, condemn, humiliate and otherwise harm women who don’t fall in line with their rigid demands on them.

    Given all that, it would seem that their constant railing against the patriarchy subjecting women is based mostly on jealousy. They want that job.

  • Digby says:

    Amanda Marcotte looks scary, I wouldn’t trust her to alone with a man.

  • Jamey Stamos says:

    Sarah Palin calling herself a feminist is ridiculous… Does she even know the meaning of that word?

    • I for one would appreciate it if you could enlighten us.

      What’s Sarah Palin supposed to do that she hasn’t already done? Come up with some personal insults against Todd? Maybe divorce him and make sure he can’t see the kids ever again? What’ve you got in mind?
