these bills are popping up like fucking weeds:
There is a huge attack on women’s reproductive “rights”. My mother has a theory that goes something like: the more “power” women amass (and of course this is not much comparatively) the more patriarchal capitalism must remind her who, ultimately, controls her body.
We have noticed this, not only as it applies to reproductive organs, but as it applies to bodies in general.
I know some people look at reproductive rights as (well I’m not sure exactly what the “line” is here, but I always get the feeling people find it a liberal concern) not essential to our “radical” gender thinking. But I really think we ought to pay attention to how this attack is playing out.
