What do you think? Not sure, thats why Im posting it.
I usually like this person's tweets but I don't get this one at all. The right in particular have always been wanting to take away abortion rights. I think there's something to be said about how libfems and modern "leftists" (aka: spicy liberals, with no actual understanding of radical politics, communist or otherwise) have handled the issue in regards to gender stuff. But I think it's a stretch to say the right wing motivation for this was because of this association. They always thought women who get abortions were sluts, they've been gunning to reverse Roe v Wade since it went through, the whole point is they think there's a particular way women should act and be and allowing abortions affects their social expectations for women. I guess I kiiiiind of get what they're saying - if abortion was seen as a serious medical procedure and not some bandaid for irresponsible harlots who just wanna fuck - but I think that's assuming the right ever saw abortion as a serious medical procedure. They haven't.
The Religious Right is stripping our reproductive rights away from us and this person is blaming the left? That person who made the tweet can get bent.
I loved that account. I hope I get unsuspended from Twitter soon…
Uhm no. It's always women's fault (aka libfem pickmes, here)... why is that? I'm sorry, but men and patriarchy want to control women's bodies, it has nothing to do with pickmes even if they do have the responsibility when they are actively being a tool of patriarchy. Stop detailing.
She’s right, to a point. I’d say misogynistic men wanting to control women again bc we’ve become too strong, too powerful, and too loud is my bigger guess. I’d also say it’s because if there is no poverty class (having a baby is the fastest way to make a woman be impoverished) then who will they enslave - sorry, jail - for free labor? The issue is deep and nuanced, but I’d definitely say the way libfem pickmes act like abortions are routine for them has played a part in making people turned off to it.

Statistically speaking poor minority women in the US are the most likely demographic to have had abortions in the past. Those who are less formally educated, and of lower income also disproportionately have had abortions. Many of these women already have a kid and simply cannot afford an another. It’s asinine to blame a small cohort of women, who likely are not the demographic pursuing abortions.
Not applicable in my experience. I’ve worked at a youth sexual health clinic for 5+ years and the majority of women reaching out to us for termination services have been sheltered and controlled by their patriarchal family/school/church structures and know nothing about sexual health and their bodies. The other 20% is the result of a genuine accident or worse, incest, rape, etc. The percentage of people taking this procedure lightly is near zero, that is pure propaganda.
And by the way, the ‘whores’ of the world know how to avoid the ultimate penalties, have higher rates of contraceptive use. Abortion is healthcare and should be a firmly entrenched right, for everything from medical to personal reasons. We should not be forced to be incubators.
So basically what she suggests is that now since abortion is legal and for some women more easy to access, some or more women are using it is a form of birth control due to "sex positivity" and then it's losing its "urgent medical nesseccity"..
I must say this sounds very logical but 1 I need statistics for this and 2 I wouldn't agree with the ban (obviously). Because of other womens irresponsible behavior they're throwing all women under the bus. Even though they are already doing that with the whole "sex positive moment" anyway.
It is however STILL that MEN are making this desiscion which is one of the many reasons I'm angry about it
Blaming women for having their reproductive rights taking away? This seems the most pick me behavior in this post tbh
I think she has a point. She also posted this, which REALLY made me think and I can't unsee it now.
They suit their PFP and I cannot tell if they're serious. Sounds crazy to blame women for these abortion laws. No one is willing to get pregnant and be like "oh well ill just abort it, its birth control"
I'm sorry but we can't blame bad optics for this. They called suffragettes ugly old spinster witches who killed their kids and hated their husband's. This has never been about optics, they'll make us have bad optics even if we avoid it militantly.
Can we not blame women please and thanks.
No, women's bodily autonomy in the West has been under attack from the moment women succeeded in getting a few men to consider that maybe humanism includes us too. Abortion has always happened, and back when we were chattel, men didn't care about it nearly as much as they claim to today. Genderspecials have literally nothing to do with this issue and only obfuscate female issues.
Men do not care about children, never forget this. In various periods of the West's past, men even felt it was within their rights to kill their women's newborns. Tomcat syndrome is still alive and well. Custody and visitation fuckery is still alive and well. Child marriage in the US is still alive and well.
What is morally wrong with using abortion as birth control? As the bottom tweet implies...
What green haired non binary transmasc polyspecial blob is using abortion as a form of birth control? Are they talking about a specific person?
The political right has always been vocal about taking away abortion. That's their voter base. Since the election of Donald Trump, there's more visibility of the extreme right views. Each win emboldens them to pander to that base and take more extreme steps. The political right has always been more cohesive and able to bind together than the political left.
I wouldn't go so far as blaming gender ideology for this, since the Right's attempts to overturn Roe v Wade have been non-stop since it was first instated. However, I do blame liberal feminists and TRAs for having to defend using the word 'woman.' They are infiltrating women's organizations like Planned Parenthood, and are siphoning desperately needed resources to fund their pseudo-scientific notions. It all comes down to this: neither the right nor the left truly care about women.
