Government-run vaginas: or, “you didn’t give birth to that”
Good lord. The tin-eared infantalization of women represented by this propaganda campaign — you empowered dears who vote “progressive” need the State as your daddy from womb to tomb, and your political agitation on behalf of such profound dependence on government is said to be proof of your independence and authenticity — is absolutely surreal to behold. And yet I have grad school friends, seemingly educated people, who still think it hip to vote for Obama and the Dems. As if hipness today is defined by a willingness to let government run our lives for us — from the size of our soft drinks to the light bulbs we’re required to use to our willingness to let Michelle Obama into our pantries or Barack Obama into our pants.
In the sixties and seventies, the feminists wanted the State out of their vaginas. Today, the establishment feminists insist the State get in there and make a second home of the thing.
You’ve come a long way, baby, indeed.
