I Got Your Patriarchy Right Here

A right-wing radio host says he gets a say in what women do with their bodies because he’s a man and that’s what men do.

Conservative radio host Mark Davis argued on Sunday that he deserved to have “a say” on whether women were forced to carry their pregnancies to term because he said that “half of the babies aborted are women” and needed his protection.

On Sunday’s edition of Inside Texas Politics on WFAA, former Democratic state Rep. Domingo Garcia and Davis reflected on last week’s congressional Planned Parenthood hearings.

“This isn’t about abortion rights or women health,” Davis scoffed. “It’s about whether this group might have broken the law in selling baby parts for money.”

Garcia, however, argued that the attack on Planned Parenthood was part of the “war on women” being waged by Republicans.

“The Republicans, especially grumpy old guys, care about what women to with their bodies,” Garcia noted. “Why can’t you leave them alone? Let them make their own decisions.”

“This grumpy old guy believes that those distinct lives in the womb deserve protection,” Davis shot back. “I’m a grumpy old guy, that’s a human life, I get a say.”

Yeah, why bother asking the person who’s got the womb what she thinks because all she is is just a vessel for it.  No say in the matter whatsoever because that’s a man’s job, right?

One bark on “I Got Your Patriarchy Right Here

  1. I took Latin in high school and was just musing the other day on the fact that the word “uterus” is masculine. Maybe that’s why so many men think it’s their business what goes on in there.
