Feminist fraud Gloria Steinem, who was a rock star of the feminist movement in the 70s, has now gone full-blown death star.
Steinem once actually cared about women being equal to men, but at some point she became nothing but a puppet for the patriarchy that rules the far-left wing faction of the Democrat Party.
Story. Apparently, Steinem was being interviewed and discussing the faux theory of man-made global warming or climate change (whatever they decide to change it to next), and made one of the most evil and bizarre statements any normal thinking person could imagine. From The Blaze:
The 83-year-old Steinem who helped popularize the controversial “I got an abortion” T-shirt, and who has been outspoken on women’s reproductive rights for decades, told the website that climate change is a “feminist issue” because world overpopulation could have been avoided if abortions were more readily accessible to women.
“Listen, what causes climate deprivation is population,” she said. “If we had not been systematically forcing women to have children they don’t want or can’t care for over the 500 years of patriarchy, we wouldn’t have the climate problems that we have. That’s the fundamental cause of climate change. Even if the Vatican doesn’t tell us that. In addition to that, because women are the major agricultural workers in the world, and also the carriers of water and the feeders of families and so on, it’s a disproportionate burden.”
If she actually argued about having birth control more readily available, that would be one thing. But she’s complaining that not enough women rip humans from their wombs with an abortion.
Feminism fail. Steinem long ago failed as a feminist when she decided to hook her bra straps to the Democrat Party. If she was a real feminist, the kind she seemed to emulate back in the 70s, she would finally grasp that the power of a woman is within each woman who makes their own choices in life, no matter what those choices may be.
Instead, faux feminists like Steinem became water carriers for the Democrat Party and destroyed their own movement.
Why this matters? Rather than have a real discussion about the issues facing women around the world, she wants to talk about a some far-left wing concept that hasn’t proven true in decades. Rather than discuss birth control or culture around the world, Steinem, in all her faux feminist glory, is upset that more future women’s lives aren’t ended in abortion.
This is why left-wing feminists are no longer taken seriously.
