Feminists really need to stop attacking whatever they perceive as “rape culture” because they are helping to perpetuate the very thing they claim to be against. So the feminists do not like Laura Ingraham for pointing this out even though she is right. First they praise Obama’s decision. From Feministing:
Great news! The Obama administration announced late Monday that it would dropping its effort to limit sales of Plan B to girls and women 15 and over. This means girls of any age will be able to buy the pill, which can prevent pregnancy up to 72 hours after unprotected sex, over the counter without restrictions.
Then Ingraham’s comments:
“It’s a good deal for pedophiles, a good deal for people who commit statutory rape against young girls… If mothers and fathers across this country hear this and they think, ‘Well, I guess my daughter or her boyfriend or her rapist can go out to a pharmacy and get a bunch of, you know, hormone pills to give a little girl.’ We don’t really know the effect of a spiking or dropping a little girl’s — in many cases a young woman’s or a little girl’s hormonal levels. It’s outrageous! These girls can’t get their ears pierced, they can’t take an Advil at school without parental permission. Yet, they can go into a pharmacy in this Brave New World of women’s equality and — quote — reproductive health and get a morning after pill.”
And their response:
For good measure, Ingraham added: “I think it empowers men who want to abuse women.” YES! You are correct! Of course. We all know that pedophiles, rapists, men who abuse women are very in tune with the reproductive choices made by their victims. Before this decision, a pedophile or rapist would assess the age of his victim, and proceed to rape the victim if and only if she was old enough to be able to get Plan B. But now that women and girls of any age can access the morning after pill, the usually cautious, rational, and family-planning-oriented people who rape women and girls will be emboldened.
Do you think a rapist cares about the rights of women? How best to cover up the rape then help dispose of the evidence, in some cases which Plan B will come in handy, make sure there is no pregnancy. Shameful feminists.
