I’m all for feminists…in their place, of course (which clearly isn’t in the kitchen; but I digress)
Instead of marching in public to make sure that babies born even up to, but not including, their heads can be killed (also known as late term abortion), and that minors can abort their babies without mommy and daddy knowing, and demanding that the world provide day-care so that all mothers can dump their kids into the arms of hired help, and also that unmarried women can adopt babies in spite of the need of children for a daddy…how ’bout having these well- meaning activists go to Afghanistan and protect girls whose only wish is to go to school and be educated so they can participate in their society?
As reported by the Associated Press – and not for the first time – Taliban men on motorcycles attacked 15 girls on their way to school and squirted their faces with acid. The next morning, no girls showed up at school in Kandahar’s Mirawais Mena girls’ school.
Arsonists have repeatedly attacked girls’ schools and gunmen kill students. UNICEF says there were 236 school-related attacks in Afghanistan in 2007.
Activism is an important quality of people motivated with a mission to preserve and protect innocents. Feminists go after fetuses…let them instead go after the Taliban. I think it would make a huge statement and impact to have American women locked and loaded and protecting these young women who strive for the basic right to an education.
If America’s feminists would commit to such missions, I would respect and support them wholeheartedly.
