Yes, The West Needs Some Kind of Women’s Rights Movement

Currently, the United States ranks worst among first-world developed countries regarding maternal care, women’s health, public policy, mother’s rights, AND child healthcare/welfare. (US ‘worst place to be a mother’ among developed nations) Thank any mom brave enough to have a child in a country that guarantees no maternity leave, offers no job protection, makes women dependent on employers, and allows politicians and religion to dehumanize girls and women.

However, many are concerned with men in skirts getting access to female restrooms. Let that sink in. That’s the “social issue” folks choose to champion. Intersectionality fails women and children, and demonizes the good fellows we need to stand with us. Nothing will change until women actually take up for women, and stop allowing the of hijacking an entire movement (feminism) for the goals of attention whores (SJW/intersectionalists).

Dudebros and misogynists claim there isn’t a need for feminism in western countries. While intersectionalists harp on bathrooms, misogynists claim feminism isn’t needed in the West and “just a theory.” Wonder if these cretins realize South America is in the western hemisphere? You know, where women are jailed for miscarriages, and ten year old rape victims are forced to give birth. Know your geography, dudebros.

  • The United States is a so-called first world country that has the highest maternal mortality rate among industrial nations, and offers no federally protected maternity leave. But according to misogynists, dudebros and dudegirls, first-world western countries don’t need feminism. (The Washington Post)
  • Due to lack of inherent basic rights such as maternity leave and universal health care, adoption trafficking is the largest domestic exploitation of women and denigration of motherhood, treating babies as commodities and women as wrappers. But do the intersectionalists care about adoption trafficking? Is the fact that 97% of infant adoptions in the United States are forced through coercion and duress a statistic you hear from intersectionalists (3rd wavers)? No. They’re busy giving grown men dressed as girls access to women’s restrooms and dressing rooms. (adoptionland.org)
  • In my own state of Alabama, the legislature has just passed a new bill that grants grandparents rights to children. (AL.com: New grandparent visitation bill passes in Alabama Legislature) Unsurprisingly, Alabama is has one of the highest rates of domestic violence in the country. This bill further victimizes victims of domestic violence, and directly targets single mothers. Also, this state bill is unconstitutional. Constitutional Law is federal law, and federal law supersedes state law. (Remember your American history? Hint:  Civil War)
    Parental Rights Amendment
    “SECTION 1
    The liberty of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children is a fundamental right.
    SECTION 2
    Neither the United States nor any State shall infringe upon this right without demonstrating that its governmental interest as applied to the person is of the highest order and not otherwise served.
    SECTION 3
    No treaty may be adopted nor shall any source of international law be employed to supersede, modify, interpret, or apply to the rights guaranteed by this article.” (parentalrights.org)
  • Currently, 31 states allow rapists rights to a victim’s child. That’s right. Convicted rapists can sue for partial custody. And social justice warriors wanna talk about men in dresses while dudebros claim such laws are an “over-sight.”  (CNN: Child custody rights for rapists?)
  • While intersectionalists harp on bathrooms, misogynists claim feminism isn’t needed in the West and “just a theory.”  You are aware that there’s another continent below North America? And there are a number of second and third world countries on it where abortion is illegal, women are jailed for miscarriages, and child rape victims are forced to give birth.
    Meanwhile, here in Alabama,
    “The breakdown of grading for the state was as follows:
    Political Participation: D, Employment and Earnings: F, Work and Family: D, Poverty and Opportunity: D, Reproductive Rights: D, Health and Well-Being: F”
    Note the “F” in earnings? But there’s no pay gap, according to dudebros. (Alabama Today: Study finds Alabama worst state in South for women)
  • And, yes, let us not forget the pay gap between the sexes. Despite research and statistics, misogynists of male AND female ilk still claim the pay gap is a myth. They are both heartless and dumb enough to fault women for having children as part of their reasoning way a pay gap is a-okay. Now, let’s consult a legitimate source:

“According to the White House, full-time working women earn 77% of what their male counterparts earn. This means that women have to work approximately 60 extra days, or about three months, to earn what men did by the end of the previous year. However, our own estimate, which is based on hourly earnings of both full- and part-time workers, finds women earn 84 percent of what men earn. Based on our estimate, it would take approximately 40 days, or until the end of February, for women to earn what men had by the end of last year.

[….] Even though women have increased their presence in higher-paying jobs traditionally dominated by men, such as professional and managerial positions, women as a whole continue to work in lower-paying occupations than men do. And some part of the pay gap may also be due to gender discrimination – women are about twice as likely as men to say they had been discriminated against at work because of their gender (18% vs. 10%).” (pewresearch.org)

Solution:  Make motherhood an official recognized vocation, which it should be innately recognized, as motherhood is the foundation of our species. Like Germany, Finland, and all the lovely Western European countries, women need federally protected economic security. Watch this come to pass and see adoption trafficking of the American poor and powerless dry up.

  • Reproductive rights are perpetually under attacked by anti-choice pro-birthers. Again, in my state of Alabama, a “Personhood Amendment”for fetuses will allow voters in Alabama a referendum vote on this November ballot to decide whether or not women have the right terminate pregnancy. There is no exception for life of the woman, or cases of rape and incest. This is an abomination that such as bill made it pass a committee and to the floor of the House of Representatives.

From Arkansas to Ohio, many states are finding ways to restrict, even place certain bans on abortion and types of birth control. Many opponents of bans and restrictions are not being vocal enough on a woman’s right to personal autonomy, or Constitutional Law – the 14th Amendment right to privacy. Women are human beings with inherent human rights, and the most fundamental human right is personal sovereignty. We are sovereign over our bodies. This is a constitutional right and a basic human right. The second you start literally restricting, or even philosophically discussing, a woman’s right to control her reproductive organs, you’ve just admitted you consider women second class citizens at best.

Here’s the facts and inherent right of the individual woman:  She – and she only – is the only person who gets a say in her life choices. The woman outranks family and doctors in her personal autonomy. The abortion debate isn’t about some myth of “life beginning at conception” or a medical issue, it’s an issue of the very basic right of a woman to be sovereign over her body. And here’s the thing about rights – rights are inherent, intrinsic to human existence. You don’t get to vote on them.
