From a comment on this article (h/t Free Northerner). I don’t know how to link to the individual comment but it was left by the handle “RedneckCryonicist.” I’m sure I disagree with the commenter on many things–if I had written this the penultimate paragraph would start “God did not design women’s bodies and souls for this kind of abuse.” Yet the dichotomy being pointed out is interesting.
Think how perverse this sounds: Progressives talk all the time about how much they care about human health, hence their advocacy of universal health insurance and their scolding about preserving the environment, eating organic foods, living in harmony with nature, staying physically fit (except for the exemption they give to obese feminists), and so forth.
Progressives also express skepticism about the agenda and products of the pharmaceutical industry, which they call Big Pharma.
And progressives of a more philosophical turn also write about the alienation of normal human relationships which they argue results from the capitalist form of society.
So what do progressives tell young women to do? They encourage these women to sabotage their natural fertility cycle by ingesting artificial hormones, produced and marketed by Big Pharma, so that they can indulge in sterile, inorganic and alienating hookups with men these women have no intention of forming stable relationships with, until this way of life depletes them and they decide to offer their damaged goods to “nice guys.”
Women’s bodies and minds did not evolve for this kind of abuse. No wonder so many women these days suffer from depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, fertility problems, loss of sexual interest, early menopause and impairments in their ability to form durable marriages and bond with their own children.
Yet because we have lived in this clusterfuck for going on three generations now, we accept this dysfunction as “normal.” We don’t have to live this way, people.
You are right, RedneckCryonicist. We don’t have to live that way. God didn’t design us to live that way. We don’t have to follow in the bankrupt path of the culture. Instead, we can live God’s way–the way that we were designed for.
This is what the LORD says–your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along the paths you should follow. —Isaiah 48:17 (NLT)
