I'm talking about Sandra Fluke's insistence that others pay for her birth control and the meme being played out by leftists and their psychophants in the media that those of us who question Ms. Fluke's logic are misogynists and crass for suggesting that perhaps Ms. Fluke should simply opt to have less sex.
The facts are that Fluke and those who think like her are asking the rest of us to pay for their ability to have sex absent concerns for getting pregnant. Period. Fluke and those she's championing are attending an expensive law school while asking others to pay to prevent the natural consequence of their sexual proclivities. They want this, they tell us, because they tell us they can't afford to pay for the prevention of pregnancy themselves... and we're supposed to be ashamed for pointing out that perhaps Ms. Fluke and her friends should either pay for her contraception herself or quit spreading her legs so much.
Some are suggesting that Fluke was actually simply fighting for those who use birth control pills not to prevent pregancy but as treatment for a variety of women's health problems. To which I ask, sincerely, are birth control pills the only effective treatment?
I suggest that this is merely more of the feminist mantra that women ought to be able to do whatever women desire to do as to sex and its consequences. And if this means engaing in sex while having others pay to prevent pregnancy or killing the offspring that results, so be it, and a pox on anyone who would dare question the morality of such behavior.
We've slid down the cultural decay hill a pretty long ways when those who question the logic, the character and the decency of women desiring to have sex while demanding others pay to prevent them from becoming pregnant are seen to be the problem.
A very long way down that hill.
