I agree it's not nearly as black and white as it appears to be.
However, my mom, a hippie and feminist, is one of my biggest role models. I'm actually kind of dreading letting her know about my change of mind,
because I know there will be an arguement...But then, I thrive on arguement.
She, like me, spends all her free time watching history, discovery, and the others (you know, spinoffs), and is still an extream feminsit. My
grandfather wrote the sexual harrasment laws for Illinois. I, despite being a guy, am a feminist through and through.
My problem is with the deception of women. Did you know 90% of women shown a sonogram of their baby while about to have an abortion performed call it
off? The conspiracy lies in the fact that these doctors refer to people's babies as masses of tissue, while they flick us off (see the simpsons),
have heart beats, and possibly cognitave thought.
For those of you who are reflecting on your youth, and don't remember any thought, I want to remind you of a few facts. First off, the cerebrum is
where memories (short term, but they need to be short term before they enter long term) are entered, and babies have undeveloped cerebrums.
Have you ever been so drunk you don't remember what happened the night before? Do you know someone who has experienced this? Do you believe they
didn't have cognitive thought durring this period? They didn't deserve human rights? Did you kill them at that point in time just because they
suddenly became non-human and you decided to end the friendship through death?
As much as some of you would like to deny it, that's what we're doing. We don't remember our infantile states, mainly due to a premature cerebrum,
so we can't experience what an infant is going through.
Perhapse the womb is the best experience of our lives, but we just don't know it! Perhapes being born is. Maybe being fed Gerber food is, we'll
never know, our brain wasn't developed enough to rememer.
