“Take your woman out of there”
“Men, convince her to leave this place”
“As men we are to stand up for women and be leaders”
I’ve noticed that antis always go after the men, particularly trying to wound and prick them in the “masculinity” department. You know, that department where historically women could do nothing without express permission from either her father or her husband. Women couldn’t own property or inherit property because they were considered property by society at large.
Times have changed for the better, but it doesn’t surprise me that those that see the world through Christian Patriarchal lenses say these things to men as they enter the clinic.
It also doesn’t surprise me that it rarely. if ever, works. As if women have no mind of their own. As if women are sacks of potatoes that can be thrown over one’s shoulder and carried off. As if women are so easily influenced.
An anti spoke to myself and a male escort the other day. The male escort informed me that the anti told him he was leading me in the wrong direction. Because all women need tending and leadership, because they are submissive and sinful by their very nature (again, this is the Christian Patriarchal worldview talking).
I chuckled. Why, I got myself out of bed and drove myself to the clinic to escort that very day. Imagine. A woman, making a decision for herself, and acting upon it, unlike the sack-of-potatoes that the antis think women are.
