Virile GOP – American Women Are Property Again
Modern technology is great! Now, men can get their precious virility back with Viagra and a plethora of “Male Enhancement” products. They can watch “Girls Gone Wild” and have a great time … They can send “Wolf Calls” to attractive passers by, swagger around and gesture at their enhanced genitals, with confidence. They can tally up their scores like college boys. Their self esteem is guaranteed. It is always all about the male self-esteem. Self-esteem is more important than being a responsible parent or husband. What? That is where babies come from? No, never considered contraception … my church doesn’t allow that. Abortion is murder … women can’t do that. No, I am not responsible … it is her fault. No, I’m not giving a dime to that bitch.
But, oh, the disgusting idea of women having any control, over their reproductive rights, is wrong. We should make a law against that. After all, women are around for a man’s pleasure, aren’t they? GOD MADE WOMEN TO HAVE BABIES, DIDN’T HE? Let’s make it miserable for a woman to make such an awful decision. Let’s force them to see the ultrasound of their unborn fetus, before going through a pregnancy termination procedure. Texas “Virile” Republicans saw this as a good idea and passed a law making the ultrasound mandatory. AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) – Texas Governor Rick Perry Thursday signed into law a measure requiring women seeking an abortion in the state to first get a sonogram. Texas wants to be the Good Ole’ Boy (Patriarchial) capitol of the world, the epitome of a prehistoric hunter-gatherer society. Texas fundamentalist control freaks seek to insure they hold authority over women, children, and property. Texas Republican males must rule and enforce privilege to insure female subordination. Women are property again! Men are biological weapons of mass extinction! Remember Compulsory Motherhood? The Virile GOP wants to turn the clock back to the 19th century. The Virile GOP do not want to pay for any of the consequences of birth, unless they are forced to. GOP considers Pre-Natal Care, Nutrition, Education and health care, in general is unnecessary entitlement that they don’t want to pay for.
The arguments Texas women made, to their legislators, fell on deaf ears. The practical side of controlling their own personal reproductive decisions was dismissed in favor of a Virile GOP agenda. After all, these virile male Republicans are beholden to church endorsements, not some crybaby women. Not just any churches seek control, but the most fundamentalist and male dominated churches, whose dogma is anchored in centuries old tribal thinking, that the measure of a male is how many children he can sire. These churches want to dominate everyone, regardless of their faith, or lack thereof. Handing over control of a human body to any organized religion is similar to the inquisition. This is America, not an Islamic Theocracy. Human dignity is NOT gender specific!
UPDATE: The Philippines Cracks Down on Contraception The evidence suggests the bill did little to promote abstinence (what Aniceto called “self-mastery”) and did much to hurt women’s health. A report by the Center for Reproductive Rights documented a relative rise in maternal mortality, a slew of unwanted pregnancies and evidence of injury caused by clandestine abortions.

Human trafficking may be closer to home than you think- Those who work in the prevention of human trafficking want the public to see it as a broader problem that can affect men, women and children. Human trafficking doesn’t just mean a young woman being sexually exploited. It can also mean a farm laborer or a cleaning woman being forced to work for little or no pay through fear or coercion. - Human trafficking is a $32 billion a year industry — tied with arms dealing and just behind drug trafficking. Ninety-five percent of the women in the sex industry are under age 24. Detective Harry James of the Seattle Police Department gave a presentation entitled “Somebody’s Daughter.”
Human trafficking haunts the Bay Area – Though slavery has been illegal in the United States since 1863, one abhorrent flavor still persists in the form of human trafficking. The crime includes any sort of behavior that uses force to recruit or transport people into a position where they can be exploited, whether it be for labor, sex or other purposes.
The greater percentage of American women, in 2012, are unmarried. Of those unmarried women, a greater percentage are raising children alone, or with the help of their parents, siblings or aunts and uncles. Those same women are working to support themselves, their children and their family helpers. The other parent is male. The privilege of being male is the ability to have recreational sex and move on. How many times have we heard, “I am not ready for a commitment”. All that means is, the father is not finished screwing around. Parenthood would really be a drag. The male parent can get away with that, no matter how many child support laws are passed. It is always the woman’s fault. Men have a problem being responsible for their actions, but want the woman to carry the burden of falling for the line they used to get them in bed.
CDC Statistics for the US are out of date: Births: Final Data for 2009 [PDF - 1.3 MB]
Unmarried Childbearing – (2009 Data are for the U.S.)
- Number of live births to unmarried women: 1,693,658
- Birth rate for unmarried women: 50.5 births per 1,000 unmarried women aged 15-44 years
- Percent of all births to unmarried women: 41.0%
Teen Births – (2009 Data are for the U.S.)
- Number of live births to 15-19 year olds: 409,802
- Birth rate for 15-19 year olds: 39.1 live births per 1,000 population
Increases in births to unmarried women are among the many changes in American society that have affected family structure and the economic security of children.4 Children of unmarried mothers are at higher risk of adverse birth outcomes such as low birthweight and infant mortality than are children of married mothers. They are also more likely to live in poverty than children of married mothers.5, 6,
In 2009, 41% of children born in the USA were born to unmarried mothers (up from 5% a half-century ago). That includes 73% of non-Hispanic black children, 53% of Hispanic children and 29% of non-Hispanic white children. Those are not misprints.
Some children of unmarried parents, of course, turn out just fine, particularly if the parents are economically secure or in committed, long-term relationships, or if the single parent is particularly strong and motivated. And as married parents will tell you, wedlock does not guarantee untroubled kids.
Even so, evidence is overwhelming that children of single mothers — particularly teen mothers — suffer disproportionately high poverty rates, impaired development and low school performance.
A long-term study by researchers from Princeton and Columbia universities who’ve followed the lives of 5,000 children, born to married and never-married mothers in 20 urban centers, is the latest to reach that conclusion, and it sheds light on the reasons.
A large majority of the never-married mothers had close relationships with a partner when their child was born. But by the time the child was 5, most of the fathers were gone and the child had little contact with him. As many of the mothers went on to new relationships, the children were hampered by repeated transitions that did more harm to their development.
Now, guys can have intercourse with anyone anytime they feel the urge, with the blessing of the medical and political community, and split. Whoever they decide to have sex with is always left holding the bag. For all those pious control freaks, no consideration is really given to the consequences of making child bearing into a requirement for single women.
Big Pharma is really BIG PHARMA and they are raking in the dough for catering to male self-esteem. They own their politicians who support tribal consciousness. This is all wonderful for a planet that needs to populate it’s landmasses, like it did in prehistoric times. We are in 2012 and the planet has too many people to sustain. The arrogance of a deluded male population who thinks recreational sex makes them more of a man, does not want to take responsibility for their fun. Male dominance contributes to the extinction of the human race.
Gay men on the other hand are the apologists for their gender. Gay men do not contribute to the mass extinction of humanity by over populating it. They don’t make laws requiring women to bear the responsibility of the man’s indiscretion. Lesbians are the apologists for the breeding half of their gender. Gay men and Lesbians will raise the unwanted children of those denied abortions, along with their own. They also do not contribute to the over population of the planet. But, given the control freak factor of some clergy and the politicians they endorse, Gay and Lesbian rights are unacceptable. It threatens their manly tribal rights.
Bottom line, the wants of the few trump the needs of the many. The increasing poverty level in the USA has led to more crime, including rape and domestic abuse. Removing reproductive burdens from victims of rape or sexual deception is preferable to forcing a child to be born to endure physical and emotional abuse into a toxic environment. Ever wonder why women consume the most anti-depressants, while men consume more male enhancements?
The new normal: A child out of wedlock - ‘Marriage has become a luxury good,’ sociologist says
National Marriage Week: Marriage’s Economic Divide – One of the greatest drivers of poverty in the United States is the breakdown of marriage. Eighty percent of all long-term poverty occurs in single-parent homes, over 70 percent of poor families are headed by a single parent, and children in single-parent families are approximately five times more likely to be poor than their peers from married-parent homes. The connection between marriage and poverty is becoming increasingly problematic as the rate of unwed childbearing continues its upward climb. Today, more than 40 percent of U.S. babies are born to single mothers, whereas in the 1960s the rate was less than 10 percent.
Rise in abuse, neglect shadows growing poverty – A 38 percent increase in poverty probably is responsible for more abuse and neglect in Huron County. “This report shows a staggering increase of confirmed child abuse and neglect victims, from 26 in 2009 to 62 in 2010,” stated Becky Gettel, Huron County Great Start Collaborative executive director, about a new Kids Count report.
Unwed mothers in U.S. now claim most births younger than 30 – It used to be called illegitimacy. Now it is the new normal. After steadily rising for five decades, the share of children born to unmarried women has crossed a threshold: More than half of births to U.S. women younger than 30 occur outside marriage.
The GOP and the compartmentalization of dignity – Posted on 17 Feb 2012 at 2:36pm
The Contraception Mandate: Where Are The Women? – NPR: The all-male witness panel at Thursday’s House hearing on President Obama’s contraception insurance mandate inspired Representative Carolyn B. Maloney, a Democrat from New York, to ask “Where are the women?” A photo of the lineup quickly circulated the Internet—appearing on Twitter and Facebook feeds and landing on women’s rights advocacy blogs.
Of course, our Virile Male Politicians would not risk embarrassing questions by the gender they consider their PROPERTY!
