Chicks on the Right clarifies the definition of feminism

We’re sick of liberal feminists who screech “WAR ON WOMEN!†the second they’re faced with challenges — or with having to pay for their own birth control. It’s laughable when they depend on a cradle-to-grave government to take care of their every want (like guilt-free abortions and taxpayer-funded contraception), and then dress up in vagina costumes on Capitol Hill hollering for the government to keep its hands off their “lady parts.â€

They can’t have it both ways.

They either need to own up to needing a Sugar Daddy (whether he is in the form of a mate or a taxpayer) or woman-up and take care of themselves. Liberal “feminists†are proving what conservative feminists like us have known forever: They’re not feminists at all.

They’re parasites.

Real feminism is defined by women who can, and do, take care of themselves. Real feminists don’t look for a Prince Charming to rescue them, and they don’t look for a handout. That sort of entitlement mentality hurls women back several decades, when it was expected that someone else (a man) would pay their way. Liberal feminism has morphed into a laughable movement filled with harpies who hold up signs saying, “Hoes before embryos†while defining themselves entirely by their “lady parts.†We, on the other hand, define ourselves by our character, our passions, our loves, our strengths, our abilities and our successes.

Where to even start? Maybe with the fact that conservative policies make it harder for women to not need assistance from a "prince charming"?

I'm not even sure what they definition of feminism actually is, beyond, as one commentor put it: "Sorry, no, that's just libertarianism with a side dish of gender. "

Their website, chicksontheright.com, is also snarkworthy.

I don't think 'liberal feminism' (certainly not intersectional feminism) defines itself entirely by 'lady parts'. Lots of women have penises, lots of men have vulvas. Radical feminism on the other hand...

In any case, speaking as a socialist, I don't want healthcare for all, affordable education etc for myself alone - I want these things for everyone, even those who disagree with me politically. How is that entitlement?

First of all, if you have insurance, then birth control is not free. You pay for it when you pay your premiums. If someone is on Medicaid, why the hell wouldn't you want birth control covered? Birth control is a hell of a lot cheaper than covering another child. I swear, the more I hear conservatives speak, the more convinced I am that their brains have atrophied from lack of use.

I know this is a shock to those idiots, but the more you pay in birth control, the less you pay in "entitlements". And do the penis holders not have an interest in making sure they have less babies to take care of?

All of you need to just STFU. How DARE you apply logic and critical thinking skills that entertain notions of the world outside of your own tiny little paradigm?! Sickening you lot are.

I don't identify myself as feminist, however I wonder why people attack women for wanting birth control covered, but no one seems to give a damn if men get their Viagra covered.

I am also a dirty socialist.

Actually, it's partially true that you pay for birth control with your premiums, but also you pay for birth control with your labor. I think a lot of people forget that employers aren't some benevolent overlords who are giving us a salary and providing health insurance out of the kindness of their hearts. We work, they compensate us with salary, health insurance, and other compensation. So you're right that birth control is not free; I've already paid for it with the work I have given to the company. The real issue here is that employers aren't allowed to discriminate in compensation and cover comprehensive health care for men but not for women. While we're at it, medicaid and medicare should also cover abortions - a perfectly legal medical procedure - but I won't hold my breath for that when can't even agree on pregnancy prevention.

This is a conservative myth that obomacare will/does provide free birth control and abortions paid for by the government. They seem not to understand woman actually pay for their insurance and that they are not getting birth control snap card.

I swear to Goddess the extreme right has a factory that shoots out these conservative fembots like Pez dispensers. They all seem to be made from the same blonde, privileged high school mean girl mold.

I have a Facebook friend (in real life an acquaintance I know through my mommy's group) who likes Chicks on the Right and will occasionally post links to their drivel. I try my best to ignore it. On one hand, I can understand their "pull up your big girl panties and figure out how to pay for your own birth control!" mentality. On the other hand, they clearly do not understand that that's easy to say when you live in a 2-story, 4 bedroom, 3 and a half bath, 3 car garage house in a swanky development with your manicured lawn and your husband makes enough money that you can live in a house like that and still be a stay at home mom with the kids. (As the woman I am Facebook friends with does; when I was at her house for a playdate, I had to try not to gawk too much at the fact that her kitchen and family room was about the size of the entire first floor of my humble house.)

The problem with that attitude in general is that conservatives think each man (or woman) is an island. We're not, and to some extent what we do (or fail to do) affects everyone around us. It's in society's best interest to help men and women access birth control, because you either help make birth control available or you inevitably end up paying for someone else's unplanned births. Only the most uncivilized ogres will allow children to go hungry, etc.

Yeah, that drives me crazy. My boss likes to act like he's giving me my paycheck cuz he's just such a nice guy, but I earn that money, mostly by putting up with his temper tantrums. :angry-banghead:

Chicks on the Right lose their shit because Senator Wendy Davis is being featured in the September issue of Vogue.

Gee, now you know how some liberals felt when those dreadfully common Palin girls were in an issue of Harper's Bazaar a few years back. Diana Vreeland must have rolled in her grave.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.
