Pick of the day: Freeing women from hard decisions
Recently, male politicians have paused their attempts to solve world crises, instead turning their interests toward creating laws concerning what women can and cannot do with their own bodies. Thank god.
Women everywhere are up in arms about their reproductive rights and freedom of choice, when all they need to do is take a step back and place this whole situation into the hands of those who never have and never will experience what exactly they are so upset about, thereby removing complicating emotions and letting impartial bystanders calmly and calculatedly make life decisions for them.
Several state governments stand ready to instate a number of helpful laws to this effect, such as ones that ban abortions even in cases of rape or incest. This is a refreshing regression to a simpler time in society, when women readily and gratefully accepted the male perspective without fuss.
Regrettably, we still live in a world where women senselessly demand access to ethically unsound and controversial methods such as safe sex education for their children. It is my hope for the future that, when man has probed and stretched the very universe with science and technology, women will still be living as nature intended.
