The Daily Bruin — the student newspaper at the University of California, Los Angeles — ran a blog post Monday by Zoey Freedman titled, “Free tampons would slow flow of gender inequality,” which argues that the federal government should subsidize the cost of tampons and pads. Whatever your perspective on that issue, it’s safe to say that the editor’s note that sits atop the post — which said, among other things, that “not all individuals who menstruate identify as women” — is attracting decidedly more attention:
Planned Parenthood has naturally played the victim, whining that all of this is taken out of context, and insisting that, if only they weren’t so misrepresented, we would all understand that it’s totally cool to “crunch” babies and traffic in their mutilated parts. Liberals who still refuse to condemn Planned Parenthood — which is almost all of them, with rare exception — have announced, either explicitly or implicitly, that they categorically do not care about what is right, true, humane, or moral. They have laid all of these concerns as burnt offerings on the altar of Liberalism, and in the process become morally indistinguishable from Nazi sympathizers. Thus, all of the rest of their opinions are worthless, and no rational person ought to respect their point of view or take any of their perspectives about anything seriously. If you are too selfish, obtuse, indifferent, brainwashed, or cruel to unequivocally condemn the trafficking and murder of infants, then you forfeit all intellectual credibility. As progressivism celebrates men who sever their genitals and run around acting and looking like a macabre, castrated forgery of womanhood, it likewise elevates women who employ their “reproductive rights” by barbarically repudiating reproduction.
None of this should shock us. What should shock us in the first place is not that Planned Parenthood sells dead babies, but that they legally kill them. Whoever embraces the latter proposition has no real reason to reject the former. If you are against granting basic human rights to a certain segment of the population, and if you are so hostile to this group that you won’t even oppose their violent annihilation, why would you suddenly develop a conscience over the comparatively minor issue of how this lifeless, non-human, parasitic subspecies is disposed?
Blaze Radio and San Diego talk show host Mike Slater attended last weekend’s Gay Pride event in his home town. And he stunned event-goers with some simple facts they couldn’t believe. He also posted the following four quotes about gay marriage.
- “Marriage has got historic, religious and moral content that goes back to the beginning of time.”
- “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.”
- “I think marriage is as a marriage has always been, between a man and a woman.”
- “For me as a Christian, it is also a sacred union. God’s in the mix.”
