Pray for True Femininity in America
While abortion is top of mind right now, the idea of womanhood and what it means is very much in flux in our culture.
From The Federalist. For decades, Democrats have ridden out the interest of third-wave feminism’s propaganda campaign, taking for granted that most women voters see them as the party of female empowerment. For as many decades, plenty of American women have let them.
Even at the height of the feminist movement, the lies that women must become like men to be real women were damaging — but now, all pretenses are up. Every major political platform of the left is unabashedly antithetical to the protection, celebration, and dignity of womanhood. Women have one political camp on their side today, and it’s the right.
Celebrating Women’s Capacity for Motherhood
As the country awaits the Supreme Court’s release of its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson, which is expected to overturn the imaginary right to kill a child in the womb, one side is screaming that women’s inherent biological capabilities to bear children are not something to be celebrated but something oppressive to be (literally) ripped out of women’s bodies. Womanhood and its functions are bad, inconvenient, and must be bloodily suppressed for women to achieve their potential, they say.
This side is also firebombing women’s shelters that provide help and hope to pregnant mothers, using scare tactics in an effort to shut down the very support they accuse the right of not providing. And none of that compares with the fact that abortion advocates support the murder of hundreds of thousands of baby girls in America every single year….
Acknowledging the Reality of Womanhood
Perhaps the most obvious way the left undermines women is its denial of women’s very unique existence. We all remember Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson telling lawmakers that she couldn’t define what a woman is. The idea that men make the best women — in sports, in government, and even on game shows — is offensive and demeaning….
It should go without saying that a political movement that denies women’s very nature is not pro-woman, while the side that recognizes women are beautifully and uniquely designed — with biological and emotional strengths no man can replicate — is.
Protecting Physical Security in Women’s Spaces
A man who claimed to be a woman and was housed in the women’s section of Rikers prison in New York City pled guilty in April to raping a female inmate….
In Woodbridge, Va., police reported that a 30-year-old man dressed as a woman “filmed a woman in a bathroom stall at the Potomac Mills Mall.” In 2018, nine homeless women filed a lawsuit against a California women’s shelter alleging that a man who dressed as a woman (identified as D.N.) “during shower times … would repeatedly make lewd and sexually inappropriate comments to some of the plaintiffs….”
Sure enough, it’s Democrats and the states they lead that want to force women’s shelters, prisons, bathrooms, athletic programs, and other sex-specific spaces to allow men…
Democrat policies from abortion to radical transgender ideology have done nothing but demean, endanger, and traumatize women, offering lies that only leave them further and further dependent on the party and its talking points. As those talking points become more and more disconnected from reality, it’s increasingly obvious that one side of the political aisle is hostile to women and their wellbeing, and the other side is on the right.
