    I've now read the thread, and it went in the direction I hoped it would not: Abortion.

    Pity. All chance of meaningful discussion about a topic that troubles me deeply went with it.
    Better that they die for murdering their unborn babies. Its to expensive to incarcerate the murdering bitches for their evil deed.

    And I don't know any state that would ban contraception. That's just fear-mongering from the left.
    Many states are attacking women's access to birth control by attacking and defunding PP. If all people care about is abortion and preventing it at any cost, then the greater good of women and women's reproductive health is being overlooked. I do think that defunding PP and limiting access to basic reproductive health, which is very important and vital to many, many women btw, is the lowest of low for the anti abortion movement. The fact that so many pro lifers have no shame or see nothing wrong with kicking women to the curb for their beliefs shows us why the pro life side often gets the anti woman label.

    Women can and women have been against themselves. A lot of racist, white power women are extremely sexist and patriarchal. I don't know what's wrong with some people, but gender doesn't exclude somebody from sexism.
    Matriarchal, you mean.

    Patriarchal is a male dominated (anything) usually referring to a society.

    It's silly to say that, though - that women are against women just because they disagree with eachother's views on things. Are men against men when you're referring to liberals VS conservative males? Of course not.

    War on women may be extreme....but what right do we as men have in requiring them to get a vaginal probe to check if they are eligible for an abortion?

    The population of women has increased a lot since Roe vs. Wade, so this little statistic if true means absolutely nothing by itself.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Well, there are quite a lot of women who support patriarchal societies and who advance patriarchal ideas.

    That is a subjective comment. It is one that will never stop having debate. It all depends on when a person thinks life begins. Once that life begins at birth there is never a reason to take it back by killing anyone.

    So all military personal who were part of taking the lives of innocents, fit this bill do you agree with that?

    Again, it wouldn't... it puts women in a different type of danger and creates different societal problems. There really is no easy answer. You're not at all practical or reasonable when you talk like criminalizing abortion would create a perfect world. No reasonable person is honestly going to take your statements seriously.
