The so-called war on women

by Greg Krehbiel on 19 March 2012

I don’t agree with everything in this post (like her comment that pacifists shouldn’t have to pay for wars), but it’s an interesting read, and has a worthwhile perspective.

War is Hell (HT PJ Media.)

She says that if there’s a “war” going on, it’s against men, not against women.

If you truly believe refusing to force employers to pay for birth control is a war on women, then you are fragile little flowers who deserve to experience life practically anywhere else in the world. You are also unleashing a monster. Get the government to force this and NOTHING is out of bonds. Forget selling you the rope to hang you with. The government will eventually force you to pay them to hang you.

    So, next time Bill O’Reilly talks about the War Against Christmas in this country or Hannity talks about the War Against Christians in this country you’re going to call BS, right? ;)

    I never knew that in order to criticize one thing you have criticize every other thing that might be somewhat like it.

    I didn’t say every other thing. Just mentioned two.

    OTOH, I seem to recall an argument being made against the left viz a viz Bill Maher’s “c*nt” and Rush Limbaugh’s “sl*t”. I believe you might not even have to leave this IP address to find such material.

    My point is that what we have in front of us right now is a bogus claim about a “war on women.” It’s nonsense, and the fact that other nonsense exists out there somewhere doesn’t change that. Pointing it out is a distraction.

    I haven’t spoken about the so-called “war on Christians” — or at least not very much, that I recall. If I took one approach to the “war on women” and a contradictory or inconsistent approach to the “war on Christians,” then you would have a point.

    Also, I don’t pretend to be some sort of “everything worthy of mention” news reporting service. I simply talk about what I want to talk about.

    The leftists in the media, however, want us to believe that they’re giving us a balanced, comprehensive view of what’s going on and what’s important, and that is obviously a bad joke. They are completely biased.
