The Republican House and Senate are introducing legislation that is meant to punish the LGBTQ community but also allows companies to fire single women that get pregnant out of wedlock. Out of wedlock?? Is this 1950? With them it always seems to be that way. Their archaic platform wants to role us back from 2015 to an imagined Pollyanna version of American history, post World War II.
These Republican legislators will create an impossible situation for all women–one of unhappy if not entirely forced marriages. We are expected to choose marriage and do with requiring a man in our life to oversee us and help pay our way.
I am single and trying to get pregnant before I have no opportunity to have children, because I could not find a partner in time. Yet, they want to call me a bad person because I am not willing to make babies with a man I don’t care about, trick him into marriage and spend the next 50+ years miserable. I have wanted a child since I was twenty. I did the right thing, trying to date and meet the right guy. but…Marriage isn’t about happiness they say, it’s a contractual agreement like a small business in which you manufacture the next generation. I was to be chosen, not partake in mutual choosing, which left me with no recourse but to go alone because the pool of choices is narrow and it narrows further with age.
In addition, to further this baby making company agenda of marriage, they pay women less so they’re forced to either work more than one job, or shack up with someone they don’t want forever with to make ends meet. They threaten us with the loss of our livelihood should we chose to rear children on our own–our choice our bodies, because we’ve not found a suitable partner with which to enter a legal monetary arrangement for the benefit of ‘biblical pairings’ –which forces women into having abortions or, should they chose life, onto the dole to afford the life they’ve brought into the world. These children are the next generation!! They don’t care how you mate so long as you do, it seems, unless you’re single or gay. (starting to see the eugenics in the plan?)
Once upon a time you could afford a nice apartment and have savings all on one job. The system is set up now to make failure and create a pipeline to prison; to shame and control women as baby machines to provide more bodies for war and corporate servitude. Those who buck the system are punished, or eradicated.
They’re fucking evil, pardon my diction. You know who else does convoluted manipulations to cause misery and retain control? Domestic abusers. They enjoy this abusive relationship of controlling women–exactly like the domestic violence perp. Narcissists and Sociopaths!
