I’ve been seeing this subject trending for weeks, and since everybody else has shared their opinion, here’s mine. It’s simple, and this will probably be one of my shortest blog posts. We men should have no say whatsoever in what women do with their bodies. That’s all.
There. That was easy.
To clarify, we don’t have to approve of abortion. We don’t have to support women’s’ choices. It doesn’t matter what we think because abortion involves a woman’s choice about her body. It is literally none of our fucking business. (Regardless, I do support abortions.)
In a perfect world, that’s how it would go down. But in this sick patriarchal world, men do get to make the laws and control women’s bodies. A couple of proposed laws in a couple of American states have prompted me to write this. It’s gotten to the point where women are being punished for having abortions, while men get off scot free, even rapists. It’s gotten to the point where I have to write something about it because I feel that not doing so makes a statement that condones taking away women’s bodily autonomy.
Men should have no say in a woman’s decision. Unless you are helping her after she already made her decision, you need to shut the fuck up.
