Progressives Reduce Women to the Sum of Their Girly Parts | Human Events
My latest article at Human Events:
So-called progressives recently gathered in Las Vegas for their annual NetRoots conference, where they celebrate diversity and individual freedom—by marching in lockstep to an ideological agenda and demonizing those who actually embrace diversity of thought and personal liberty.
You know, like those evil conservatives.
While most of the conference was tiresomely predictable, something stood out to me.

A vast supply of merchandise that encourages the disrespect of women and the killing of their unborn babies.
Instead of trying to code it up with “I heart pro-choice girls,” they should have just been honest (I know, they aren’t too good at the honesty thing, intellectually or otherwise) and flat-out said, “I heart girls who will let me use them for sex and abort any resulting pregnancy—no responsibility and no respect needed” or, simply, “no muss, no fuss.”
