Objectification 4: Breeder Edition

Yet another facet of how males objectify women is reproduction. Patriarchy is entirely based on our reproduction, that is, on the fact that we give birth to 100% of the people. 

All of this bullshit that is propogated by males about penis envy? Uh, yeah, this is just another classic male reversal. No woman, anywhere, ever, is envious of a penis. Even thinking about it is kind of hilarious. Especially since males are apparently a slave to it, by their own admissions. 

Males actively engaging in womb envy is obvious and very common. This is why males try to control our uteruses. They can’t reproduce without us.

And the fact is that, if they all dropped dead tomorrow, women would be just fine. In fact, it would be an immediate drop in male terrorism, so we would actually be much better. Also, there’s a ton of sperm sitting in sperm banks, as well as women who would be currently pregnant, some with boys. Not to mention that sperm can be harvested from a dead dude for 48 hours after death.

See? We would all be good. 

This is what sperm actually sound like. Seriously. 

Conversely, if all of the women dropped dead, that event would end the human race. And the dudes would starve to death, since the majority of them can’t shop or feed themselves. And they would be walking around in dirty clothes, probably raping each other and crying, in turns. 

That was fun. Back to it. 

Abortion is something that women have engaged in since the beginning of time, likely since childbirth can kill us, and population control in regards to resources available are valid concerns. So of course women would seek to control it.

The really interesting thing about abortion is that this was never an issue. You know the very year that this became an issue? It was the year that women got the vote.

So, it seems that we won the vote, and males had already been putting together a list of shit to throw at us. Abortion topped the list. And it engaged the holy trifecta of patriarchy: the law, religion, and the medical establishment, which were all run by and created by males.

The hysteria of males over abortion is actually based in their overwrought male emotions. In a sane world, women would have 100% autonomy of our own bodies. But males are insane and are pants shittingly frightened of not controlling everything, including bodies that don’t belong to them.

They don’t see us a human. They see us as breeders, chattel, reproductive slaves that “owe” them children. Common sense dictates that we all know who the mother of a child is, who cares about who the father is. It would make the most sense to track lineage and pass down property via the female family line.

But males can’t control everything that way. So they created a convoluted, invasive and unnecessary system to insure that any child born of a particular woman is “theirs”.

The patriarchal system has our objectification built right in, in many forms. In this case, when males created marriage to insure our status as objects, they insisted on purity. Males owned their own sexuality and desires, and they owned ours, too. Purity insures that males don’t end up raising another male’s child.

For many years, even after purity norms were loosened a little bit, patriarchal society still shamed single mothers, while denying them abortion and birth control access. When women had children outside of marriage, that goes against male control. Males also are not interested in raising children since this is the mother/slave’s job, and is beneath him. And when males are required to pitch in money to raise the children that they helped create, we can hear them crying like babies for miles.

In patriarchy, women make less than males for the same jobs, are kept out of or erased from entire fields in favor of males, and patriarchy refuses to support women and mothers, even though there are ample resources to do so. Males do this to keep women in a submissive and subservient position, and they reward women that participate in the social norms, like marriage. Societal factors encourage women to stick to the reproductive slave role, by telling women that if you have children FOR a male in marriage, then he will provide for and protect you.

We all know that it rarely works out that way, though, does it?

Because males generally treat their wives as the slaves that males think that we are. Males created this system, and told us that if we play by their rules, then we would be ok. The unfortunate and sad truth is that males are unable to live up to their end of the bargain that THEY CREATED.

We have high numbers of males refusing to work to support their families, males beating/abusing their wives and kids, even going so far as to murder them. And patriarchal society protects the male abusers because he is the owner, the wives and kids are the property that he owns.

Women are not property, and our bodies are our own. Abortion is her personal decision for a multitude of reasons, it’s not for anyone else to decide. Especially not for the male that impregnated her.

Males deny abortion not just as a control, but also as a punishment. Many males think that pregnancy is the deserved consequence of filthy, slutty behavior (slut being yet another object). Males fuck with impunity and zero consequence, and they don’t want women to have the same freedom. That’s mostly because they are just judgmental assholes that resent that we can choose whom to fuck. They hate that we have any choice at all.

So they create so many obstacles to obtaining safe abortion that many women have no choice but to give birth, forcing the woman to be a slave to a kid. Then the male government refuses to support the child that it forced her to have. 

And then, they blame her. They never mention the “father”, though. Males don’t ever talk of punishing him, or how he is a slut, or how he is a societal mooch for creating a baby. The hatred and judgment goes only to the woman. 

Forced birth is saying that the woman does not matter. She is just the “host”, the “incubator”. She is not human. She is a baby factory for males to utilize. 

And male ignorance of the female body is astoundingly rampant. In the US, we have congressMEN that ask if he can see a fetus if the pregnant woman swallows a camera. We have a male politician that says that if a woman is “legitimately raped”, then the female body has ways of “shutting that whole thing down”. We have another one that says that dead fetuses don’t need to be removed from women because pigs and cows don’t need dead fetuses removed.

There are numerous examples of male politicians saying ignorant, idiotic things about women and pregnancy. And they have a lot of male supporters. But the bottom line is that males don’t care if their ignorance and malice kills us. In fact, that’s what they intend. In the same way that they replace a toaster that breaks, they view us as replaceable. Toaster won’t work? Just throw it out and get another one! Males feel the same way about us. We are objects, and when objects die, oh well. Males will just get another one.

We also have women in prison for attempting to self abort because they couldn’t access a legal, safe abortion. The male justice system finds endless, numerous ways to punish us for refusing to be their reproductive slave.

The supreme Court gave women the right to abortion, and males have spent years trying to overturn it. And since they can’t overturn it, they have made abortion inaccessible for most of us while criminalizing and punishing women that refuse to submit to their demands that we be forced to have children. 

Here’s the rule, doods. You get 100% say in decisions regarding your own uterus. You don’t have one? Good for you, you don’t have to worry about unwanted pregnancy. Your overwrought, overly emotional, hysterical cries about “baby murder” and “protecting the life of the unborn” and whatever other bullshit you come up with does not make a fetus a baby and it doesn’t make you king of all the uteruses. Our bodies aren’t your business. Neither are our decisions we make about our bodies.

And if you continue to insert your ignorant asses into things that have nothing to do with you, well. We will end up just ignoring you and going around you, just like we have in the past. Which is sometimes the only way to handle a baby having an irrational tantrum.

  1. Good article, but I have a few objections, if you don’t mind, I really don’t want to attack you, I am just giving you my point of view.
    First thing I have a problem with is the part: Abortion is something that women have engaged in since the beginning of time, likely since childbirth can kill us, and population control in regards to resources available are valid concerns. So of course women would seek to control it.
    It kinda seems like you suggested that women have right to abortions just because they have “noble” causes like overpopulation. Women don’t own anything to this misogynistic society, let alone the pleasure to do what patriarchy wants most of them, to be mothers. Many women reject motherhood(reproductive slavery) and all aspects of reproductive servitude because they are repulsed by it, and they don’t have to have higher goals just so we could say that their abortions are allowed. All women are owners of their own bodies, and only women can decide what they will do with them. Even if there was extreme shortage of people of planet, not one woman would be in obligation to reproduce, not one.

    Second thing I have a problem with is this: Societal factors encourage women to stick to the reproductive slave role, by telling women that if you have children FOR a male in marriage, then he will provide for and protect you.
    We all know that it rarely works out that way, though, does it?

    This is dangerous thinking, because it implies that if men provided for their slaves(wives) and didn’t beat them, that reproductive and domestic slavery would be all right.
    Sometimes it shocks me how even women who are radical feminist(I am talking about all radical feminist, not just you) say some things they would never ever ever dare to say for any other minority. Just imagine someone saying that we should bring back slavery for black people, because if their master provides for them and treats them semi right then slavery is ok. Even alt right Nazi wouldn’t dare to say something like that, but we(I include myself there) support slavery for women everyday.
    My point is that slavery for women(reproductive/domestic) is NEVER okay, and it wouldn’t be better if their husbands work or don’t beat them, they are still in master/slave relationship, and actually their slavery is even worse when husband works, because he is basically owning her, controlling money, and later when he dumps her to find a new servant she is condemned to the life of poverty and misery.

    1. I really appreciate your comment, and I do not feel attacked at all. Mostly because I agree with you. You are absolutely right.

      I absolutely, unequivocally believe that pregnancy and having children are 100% the decision of each individual woman only. Married, single, whatever, it’s the individual woman’s business. And I can see that I could have absolutely made that point more clear.

      Thanks for pointing it out. Honestly, I am just tickled that you took the time not only to read, but to leave me a constructively critical thought. Your time is much appreciated!

      1. No problem, I liked your other articles a lot, I just didn’t want to spam you with comments on every single one! 🙂 I bookmarked this blog, so I will be reading what you have to say in future, because I really like your comments on Feminist Current and agree with 99% of them. And apologies if my English needs some work, it is not my native language. I would like, if you can, to respond me on second objection I had(but I am pretty sure that I misunderstood you again), to quote:

  2. I agree with you on that point, too.

    And I can see how I wasn’t very clear. I got sidetracked a little bit and didn’t mention tthe points that you raised.

    Do you comment on FC? I am asking because I don’t recognize your name.

    Also, if you don’t mind my asking, what is your first language? Your English is very good.

  3. This is going to be a little longer comment. 🙂 I am from east Europe, my first language is Serbian, and I don’t comment on FC, I just lurk and read comments, I don’t have too much time unfortunately for something like that.
    In about me I saw that you feel lonely in your radical feminism because you are from South. I sympathise with you, because I am in similar, but much worse situation. In my country I don’t know one liberal feminist, let alone radical, in country as misogynistic as mine that is impossible to find. I like to read blogs of foreign feminists, because there aren’t any in my country, and I want to feel less alone, sometimes I feel like I am the only woman in the world who is disgusted by so much hate against women. I don’t believe that anything will change for women, men are without salvation, so situation is going to be the same or much worse, I just want to read persons who feel the same as me, because nothing can be done. I will read your articles in the future, just so you know, even if I don’t left a comment, I will be reading.

  4. I can certainly sympathize. And I agree that males will never be any different then they are now. They will never give up their power willingly.

    One of my favorite things ever is from icemountainfire, “men are not broken” (I reblogged it here). It’s a perfect piece of feminist writing and it sums up exactly how I feel.

    You are welcome to comment any time, and you are welcome to just read. I appreciate the company.
