This woman gets right to the heart of why I think that women and men are not, and cannot be considered equals, on the topic of violence.
It is rare to find a man who will so blithely admit to cutting the throats of human babies, so the baby cannot scream. Will men do these things? Absolutely. Of course they will. Dashing out the brains of infants against rocks or bricks is a staple of literature, and has been for thousands of years. Men kill babies, when prompted. Men are capable of the worst, most atrocious violence against other men, against women, against children, but the significant, horrific difference between men and women, I think, is that women kill their own babies.
The psychotic doctor who seems almost delighted that she cuts the throats of infants not her own is atypical only in the sense that she is killing a baby not her own, but by definition, has the consent and instruction of the baby’s mother. That’s the only unusual thing. It’s another woman’s baby. Women will generally kill their own children, not another woman’s child. This is simply not true for men. Most infants are killed by their mothers, especially if they are killed in the first week, and then by a step-father or male not related to the child. Men rarely kill their own infants. The link above conflates step-fathers and fathers, but if you open the source, it’s largely unrelated males who kill infants.
One in four women in the US will have an abortion before the age of 45. One in four women have actively chosen to take a human life. Some people think that they only way women are able to do this is because the abortion industry trains them to think an unborn baby isn’t a human life. Women are put through a dehumanization process so they can kill their own children, similar to the program soldiers are put through to kill enemy humans.
But then I ask myself this question: if abortion were illegal, but infanticide were not, would the numbers of women who choose to end human life change?
Go back and look at that woman who tweeted so gleefully about cutting a baby’s throat so the baby can’t scream. Are you so sure the majority of women are different?
How do you know?
Lots of love,
