Yesterday this awful video came into my recommendations and while I've never heard of this song I've heard of this couple and I like to torture myself watching them sometimes.
At around the 14 minute mark, the tirade begins: Listen to the rage, entitlement and misogyny in his voice. Listening to his rant raised my blood pressure and anxiety. He compares women's bodily autonomy rights (that are often life-saving and that they will often die without) to men's money, as misogynists usually do. Whining about all the millions of men who are in pain for their "Lost Child" and saying that men have a right to force women to give birth if they want to. It's outrageous and enraging. So if men are in some pain over the loss of this fetus, the solution is to force women to endure the pain of pregnancy and childbirth which could include death and permanent complications? Do men really think they're that fucking important?
Never a single thought for women at all as usual. No empathy for women's pain. Probably doesn't even realize women feel pain. Fails to comprehend basic logic such as the differences between the male and female role in pregnancy and childbirth. Also failing to consider women have to pay a lot of money too. Just idiocy and misogyny all around.
He says that the logic of why women should have the right to terminate a pregnancy but men can't force women to give birth doesn't make sense to him. I'm sorry what doesnt make sense? And how does your money have anything to do with it? Oh that's right. Because you think we're your property. The only way this old "women and money" comparison make sense is if you think women are a commodity
Will there ever be an end to male entitlement? Is there ever such a thing as too low? Are men ever going to step back and say maybe I'm not entitled to all the things I think I am? And lastly why do they have to be so angry at us? What have we done to deserve so much vitriol, hatred and rage?
