The great thing about being a leftist is that any of your agenda items can be used as the cause or effect of any of your other agenda items. For example, let’s say you think abortion is really great and global warming is actually real. All you have to do is insist that a lack of the former has resulted in the latter. Presto!
Here’s horrid shrew Gloria Steinem babbling to Refinery29 about stuff she doesn’t know anything about:
People argue that climate change and other issues are also feminist issues. What do we lose by broadening the meaning of the term?
“Are you kidding me? Listen, what causes climate deprivation is population. If we had not been systematically forcing women to have children they don’t want or can’t care for over the 500 years of patriarchy, we wouldn’t have the climate problems that we have. That’s the fundamental cause of climate change. Even if the Vatican doesn’t tell us that. In addition to that, because women are the major agricultural workers in the world, and also the carriers of water and the feeders of families and so on, it’s a disproportionate burden.”
We have to kill the children, or else we won’t have any sort of planet to leave to the… children. Wait.
Again and again and again: Liberals want conservatives to shut up. Conservatives want liberals to keep talking.
