Women haters: Are all Republicans like this?Dr. Phil Leveque Salem-News.com
Pregnant, barefoot and in the kitchen. Really?
(MOLALLA, Ore.) - As a man, I regard the three leaders of Presidential primaries with abhorrence. It reminds me of a perverse “Three Stooges”. I really don’t know if two of the wives wanted “x” number of children, I don’t think they had any say-so.
It reminds me of my visit to a Leveque family reunion in northern Maine. Most of the Leveques are Catholics, and there was a prize for the biggest family. Of my father’s generation, the biggest was 9 children. Of my own generation it was 4. Was the number in both cases providential? Or were contraceptives of some sort involved in the latter?
The third leading contestant seems to have a strong habit of bed-hopping. All the details are not known to me but they seem to be mentioned frequently. I suppose it’s connected with the biology of being an Alpha male, or that's what some would like us to think.
To hear these Three Stooges rail against contraceptive use is an abomination to me in that it is said 98% of women use, or have used, contraceptives of some sort in their fertile years.
If the women do not wish to become pregnant, why should men as a group have the power and arrogance to deny them this right? If a woman does become pregnant by “accident”, by rape, or incest, why shouldn’t she have the right to suspend the pregnancy? If men got pregnant, they would certainly maintain this right.
A lot has been barked about single mother pregnancy and childbirth. Are the single fathers being required to provide financial support or do these costs fall on the rest of us because the typically young single mother cannot adequately provide for the child or children? You know the answer.
The mother and child are forever yoked with the strong probability of being at the bottom of the socio-economic heap and will never be able to escape from it. This costs the rest of us plenty!
The Alpha males certainly have a lot to explain, even to themselves or their wives. Would they really want their own daughter to be yoked by the same restraint they profess to maintain? If so, shame on them!
Women have the responsibility to vote against ALL of these restrictions. If they don’t consider changing their voting habits to voting their own minds, then consider this: do you really want to be relegated to what your predecessors were? Pregnant, barefoot and in the kitchen?
For many years, the main cause of death in women was childbirth. Even today, over half a million women die from pregnancy and childbirth-related tragedies worldwide every year. This number can still grow. Remember, things can always get worse if you let them.
WOMEN: STAND UP! DEMAND AND EXERCISE YOUR WOMENLY RIGHTS!
