      @mariolis1000 how is it not? Abortion is removing something/someone from inside your body that you don't want there, preventing toxicosis, varicosis, joint problems, teeth problems, weakened immune system, horrible pain, genital tearing, incontinence, bleeding, hemorrhoids... That's just the normal side-effects of a pregnancy: some people might also suffer retina damage, abdominal surgery, stroke, death... Abortion is like the single biggest preventive medical procedure there is.

    • Zuma Zuma

      2 måneder siden

      The fact that it's explained doesn't mean it isn't a problem that has to be fixed. Jobs historically start paying less as soon as too many women get into them, and more when they become male-dominated, like IT. It's unclear what's the cause and what's the consequence, but it's certainly not just because women choose less valuable jobs. The hours thing is obvious: women are forced to cut hours shorter because they do a lot more unpaid labor, like taking care of the children or old parents. Without parental leave or universal preschool they are forced to put their careers on hold, and during this pandemic the government used women instead of the non-existent safety net, forcing millions to quit their jobs. And since on average they make less than their husbands, they're the ones who sacrifice the job first, and thus they get stuck in a vicious circle.

    Whatever your political bent, only a useful idiot would deny that Phyllis Schlafly effectively destroyed Betty Friedan’s pro-ERA arguments in their famous debate on Good Morning America. Leftists acted for ten + years as though their awful ERA bill was a done deal, and had every major established power in their pocket, including a Republican president, and yet they got whipped by a homemaker and mother of six. John Oliver would suffer the same fate as Friedan if he was ever man enough to debate a Phyllis Schlafly. But John Oliver would never dare - leftists don’t debate, they throw tantrums and censor - because Oliver is clearly a bully and therefor a coward. Guess you all prefer that.

      @Get It? Dog i didn't say it's the definition of "aware". But being aware of the past means (you are able to) learn from it, doesn't require you to be stuck there. You don't seem like you have a great command of English yourself if you can only understand things literally. Not sure what "unhappiness" you mean: there are a lot of things that make my life less happy than it could have been before, like climate change, covid, not enough big band jazz... But that's not caused by feminism, and all the things caused by feminism (free choice of studies, work, reproduction, sex partners, life partners etc) make me much happier.

      @Zuma Zuma Being "aware" means no such thing. You live in a fantasy world of narcissism where everything must comport to your beliefs - even the English language. This makes you an ideal marxist-feminist, straight out of an Orwellian dystopia. Unfortunately women in general today are suffering greatly precisely because of flaws such as yours.

    Jesus christ......America is a failed state, entirely. Every goddamn segment of this show proves that. We've lost our humanity, our intelligence, our empathy, our efficacy.....we're eating ourselves alive, blissfully apathetic. It's genuinely sickening and heartbreaking. It's why when people shout _"We're #1!!!"_ I don't just cringe....I feel infuriated. That sort of willfully credulous fetish patriotism that turns a blind eye to the internal rot of our reality....is unforgivable. So....what the hell are we going to do about this? And by _this_ I'm literally referring to the *_HUNDREDS_* of deeply systemic pathologies this one single show has brought to light. It's overwhelming....and easy to become disheartened and give up. But I'd rather go big right now. It's 2021....and America has been through some shit. With democrats in control....I think it's damn time we MAKE them address every...single...one of these problems. Now. No waiting. No hesitation. No damn bipartisanship. Run right over the GOP and do everything possible to undo the pathological rot infecting our nation right now. That IS possible. But it's literally going to take MASSIVE public disruption. Think of the George Floyd protests of the summer of 2020....but 100 times that. That's the level of engagement we need. Summer is coming soon.....I really hope we don't blow it. We need to use this window of opportunity NOW. The midterms are right around the corner.....and then, it could easily be too late. Gah.....rant over. I've been binging LWT episodes....and I just feel drained. Yet also fairly energized and just DONE with this shit.
