Quote of the day: “Modern empowerment” seems less than empowering

IUD, abortion, abortifacient, birth control

It’s the sad truth that feminism, once a plucky movement with worthy elements dedicated to fighting structural inequities faced by women, has collapsed into often-sulky shambles with one overarching, consistent demand: “I’m helpless! Pay for my stuff!”…

If Planned Parenthood did lose funding, and the nation disintegrated into a nightmarish dystopia straight out of “The Handmaid’s Tale” by Margaret Atwood — this second part wouldn’t happen, of course, but let’s entertain the fantasy for now — what would feminists do?

They’d impress me, for one, if they rolled up their sleeves, got to work and raised the money themselves. If Planned Parenthood is the marvelous and necessary charitable organization its fans say it is, this shouldn’t be a problem, right?

Last time I checked, alas, feminists weren’t making these plans. In media outlets ranging from Time magazine to The Daily Beast to New York magazine to Vogue, feminists were urging their “sisters” — wait for it, for I’m not making this up — to rush out and get a “free” government-funded IUD while they still could.

Apparently, that’s what modern empowerment is all about.
