ROADSCHOOLING somewhere between Here and There

Calling a woman a slut is NOT a war on women

We’ve gotten so good at throwing around extremes. We love everything and everyone, we’re BFFs with any and everyone. Not getting the latest iPhone on its release day makes it the worst day ever. Really?

There are people who want to say that calling a woman a slut is war on women. Maybe they’re also talking about the idea that a PRIVATE institution wants to choose what it covers in its own health insurance. Really? Are those really what we want to call

WAR ON WOMEN?

Let’s sit back and take things in perspective. This is war on women:

  • Sex-selective abortions and female infanticide. (Fortunately, female infanticide seems to be on the decline.) This is war on women.
  • Genital mutilation such as circumcising females (nothing to do with hygiene) or sewing vaginas shut. This is war on women.
  • Sex trafficking, which shockingly is alive and well IN AMERICA. This is war on women.
  • Murdering, and publicly at that, women for having affairs. This is war on women.

Do we really want to say that an inappropriate comment and the desires of a private institution are wars on women? Cut the political bantering and forced American-feminist outrage. Put on your big-girl panties, forget about the old, white dude that called someone a slut, get righteously angry, and get the word out about the true war on women going on under the radar all over the globe.
