This is why white nationalists evangelicals support Trump. His stated views line up with their own. They also want to “punish sluts” who challenge male authority by acting as independent human beings outside of that authority. They view a women’s sexuality not as her own, but as something to be controlled by the men in her life, because she can’t be trusted with it.

Can’t be threatening the knuckle dragging caveman now can we?

That’s the problem, though. They are not just ignorant or knuckle dragging cavemen. They are pretty sophisticated, modern subjects who are using modern tools to create a modern theocratic movement that aims at nothing less than taking over the US.

I always felt like this is not Trump’s actual position*. He adopted the anti-choice position to suck up to evangelicals, but the problem was, Trump didn’t really know the actual details of the position, so he’d make something up that he thought was consistent when asked. Which led to him saying this but not knowing he was going beyond what evangelicals would admit to wanting. (Obviously many anti-choice evangelicals do want women jailed, but they’ve been very careful not to say it in public.)

*He’s historically been pro-choice in that he doesn’t want any women he gets pregnant having children he’ll be responsible for - but he also doesn’t personally care what the laws are and how they impact others, assuming (correctly) that his wealth can except him and his.

Men in the USA, we should be shouting as loud as our partners, mothers, sisters, and friends right now, and into the Midterms, then beyond to the 2024 elections.

Women already have to shoulder the burden of abortions.

Don’t make them shoulder all the burden of fighting for the right to have them too.

This is our fight as well.

We should check with Michael Cohen and see how many abortions Hair Furor paid for over the years.

That aged very well, indeed.

Just a guess, but don’t Trump’s brothel-keepers shoulder that cost?

I feel like a mistake people make is assuming that Trump believes things.

" Boy, these conservatives are really something, aren’t they? They’re all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you’re born, you’re on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t wanna know about you. They don’t want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no Head Start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you’re pre-born, you’re fine; if you’re preschool, you’re fucked.

Conservatives don’t give a shit about you until you reach military age . Then they think you are just fine. Just what they’ve been looking for. Conservatives want live babies so they can raise them to be dead soldiers. Pro-life, Pro-life. These people aren’t pro-life, they’re killing doctors! What kind of pro-life is that? What, they’ll do anything they can to save a fetus but if it grows up to be a doctor they just might have to kill it?

They’re not pro-life. You know what they are? They’re anti-woman. Simple as it gets, anti-woman. They don’t like them. They don’t like women. They believe a woman’s primary role is to function as a broodmare for the state."
