Or rather, wimmin. They're either grossly uninformed and gullible, or, well, you know, less than entirely honest. And boringly predictable (or is it predictably boring?). A few examples:
Lisa Miller, who last week alerted us to the sinister "subliminal messages" of large families, "biblical patriarchs," and "smug fecundity," cautions us this week against all forms of organized religion, because they're [brace yourselves] patriarchal. (And Rick Santorum is bad because he reminds us that weak families, including those headed by single mothers, have harmful effects on women, kids, and society. Fascist!)
If you can't expect the Post's On Faith writer, above, to give religion or traditional morality a fair shake, or even a moment of serious thought, there's no reason to expect it from Alexandra Petri. And she doesn't disappoint. If you believe in old-school morality, you're a cartoon who is "against sex." That's it. Very edifying. (As usual.)
Have you noticed how little wimmin respect women? A silly writer at Jezebel would like us to believe that Catholic University employs sex police in their dorms: "resident advisors press their ears to dorm-room doors and write down everything they hear if they suspect the students inside are having sex". Good one.
Next up, Nancy Pelosi: "I believe they have just gone too far and we can do something about it more easily now. We have to take the opportunity to make the change that is necessary so nobody has to fight this fight again.” "Gone too far" as in pushing back against the state's unprecedented assault on religious liberty? Because -- hello -- no one is even talking about taking contraceptives away from anyone. But that subtle point is lost on the wimmin, who are responding to the propaganda by bursting into fits of rage and even song.
Go read Mark Steyn's excellent weekend column to make as much sense as can be made of it all. Just a bit:
All of us are born with the unalienable right to life, liberty, and a lifetime supply of premium ribbed silky-smooth ultrasensitive spermicidal lubricant condoms. No taxation without rubberization, as the Minutemen said. The shot heard round the world, and all that.Follow that up with this Corner post. Mark will be subbing for Rush on Monday. :)
Wimmin want to ban Rush.
This just in: Mark Steyn also hates women.
