Over the last few days, millions of women all over the world have taken to the streets to protest….something…
Some demand equal rights, some gay rights and others use this opportunity as a platform to demand birth control. As confusing as this sounds, the “real” reason they were marching was apparently to protest the inauguration of Donald Trump. Or was it to support child murder? Actually, I’m not even sure there was an agreed upon reason these women gathered to march as countless videos and photos showed continued confusion from everyone involved.
The difference between this and say, The Million Man March, is that there was no solidarity and little common sense. I watched a video of a pro-choice woman stand on the signs of some pro-life protesters. I saw pictures of women dressed in vagina costumes while others were mostly naked save for some black tape over their breasts. The problem with an event like this is that it says nothing. No one wins and no one even understands what really went on.
What this protest has brought to the forefront of our conversation is a renewed interest in abortion talks. In fact, perhaps most of the women who marched would agree that there was quite a strong focus on the issue of abortion. What has become astounding to me regarding this issue is that no one is really willing to defend the pro-abortion stance with logical arguments. When confronted with questions that ultimately have simple answers, the pro-choicers get irritated and walk away, refusing to answer.
The problem with feminism (or any type of extremism) today is that the platforms they decide to stand on are so inconsistent and illogical that the only way to try to maintain relevance is to continue down the rabbit hole of bad logic. They scream for rights of women while ignoring the rights of women in the womb. They demand equal pay but cannot provide examples of a long since removed wage gap. They want equality while demanding the opposite treatment toward men. This, is absurdity.
Our culture has become so confused by what we stand for on issues, that we don’t stand for anything anymore. Everything goes, chaos ensues and many like me are left looking like “confused Travolta” at the world around us.
