Conclusion: Mother Nature Is a Bitch
August 4, 2009 | NeW Staff
Let me explain the title of this post. It is the title of the Conclusion of Kate O’Beirne’s book, Women Who Make the World Worse.
She concludes with the following:
“The sexes can be equal without being the same. Women and men each have their own strengths and skills in a grand design that allows us to complement each other as coworkers and coeds, as friends and lovers.”
“Women who make the world worse by denying the complementary roles of husband and wife and father and mother dismiss children’s need for the example and attention of both parents. They have weakened the family and put children at risk. Women who make the world worse by encouraging careers at the expense of family seek to deny women the choices they freely make. Women who make the world worse by demanding that sex differences be eliminated in classrooms and on playing fields engage in a radical social engineering that harms young boys and girls alike. Women who make the world worse by insisting that American women engage in combat weaken the military and jeopardize lives. Women who make the world worse by holding candidates hostage to a phony gender gap have poisoned our politics. Women who make the world worse by lying about their radical abortion agenda betray women and their unborn children. All of these women who make the world worse by waging a destructive war between the sexes are at war with Mother Nature.”
What are your thoughts? Do you agree that the afore named women (Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Gloria Steinem, Maureen Dowd, Hillary Clinton, Jane Fonda, and Whoopi Goldberg) do in fact make the world worse?
