The DNC and the Mainstream Media have created a meme about the supposed conservative war on women. It goes like this: “You won’t ask the government to force others — including religious institutions — to pay for birth control so women can have out of wedlock sex and early term abortions, so you are waging a war on women!”
The non-hyperbolic versions of the real war on women:
Muslim honor killings:
At least 943 Pakistani women and girls were murdered last year for allegedly defaming their family’s honor, the country’s leading human rights group said Thursday.
The statistics highlight the growing scale of violence suffered by many women in conservative Muslim Pakistan, where they are frequently treated as second-class citizens and there is no law against domestic violence.
Despite progress on better protecting women’s rights, activists say the government needs to do more to prosecute murderers in cases largely dismissed by police as private, family affairs.
Planned Parenthood systematically hides statutory rape and sex trafficking victims.
25 million females destroyed in the womb (or as infants) for the sole reason that they are female. But the Left defends those abortion rights.
Obama cuts funding that helps low-income women in Texas because he loves Planned Parenthood more than really helping women.
Then there is Obama’s problem. And it isn’t just the 1,000,000 reasons Obama won’t return Bill Maher’s donation, even though he called Sarah Palin a c*nt, and it isn’t just the rest of the media overlooking slurs against conservative women that pale in comparison to what Rush said about Sandra Fluke.
I’ll let the readers decide which positions are truly anti-women.
Finally, don’t miss this by the Wintery Knight. It is a terrific summary of how we got here, plus more about how radical feminism hasn’t improved the happiness of women.
A few decades back, a vocal minority of women decided to revolt against chastity, small government, low taxes, marriage, courtship, and motherhood. They decided that it was better to be able to have recreational sex before marriage, to put their own careers ahead of motherhood, to liberalize divorce laws, to pay women to have children without being married, to vote for higher taxes, to expand government to offer social programs and redistribution schemes, and to assault the traditional gender roles of husbands and fathers. Most men had nothing to do with starting this revolution, but men in general went along with it because they wanted freely available recreational sex more than they wanted children to be safe in stable, married homes.
