Liberal Blog Declares That Men Have Abortions

Posted by Dave Blount at April 13, 2011 11:03 AM

To get an idea of how profound the schism between liberalism and reality has become, readers are referred to Feministing, which shrieks that we must stop thinking of abortion as a women's issue:

Cause, the thing is, it's not just women that have abortions
Trans men have abortions. Gender queer people have abortions. Two spirit people have abortions. People who do not fit into the box of 'woman' have abortions.
This is the reality we live in, and the more we pretend otherwise, the more dangerous it is for other people, and the more they are excluded by the movement.

Whatever these weirdos live in, reality isn't the word for it.

Gender is this thing that we construct out of a million different characteristics. The way we hold our hands. The length of our hair. The shape of our face. What we wear. Our voices. But then, for some reason, when we got to the question of what is it really, we go to what lives between your legs. Even though that's not how we make gender and that's not how gender works. It's in that assumption that gender lives in our crotches, that we end up erasing the reality that men can have abortions, men can get pregnant and give birth.

Unfortunately it's painful when we give birth to unicorns. But it's worth it because they look so pretty with their paisley fur.

The technical term for Feministing's brand of moonbattery is psychosis.
