A new feminist magazine called “Feminist Times” recently ran a piece in their “Taboo Corner” section titled “sterilize her”. It sparked a backlash for its brutal honesty, the likes of which can often be found in the manosphere, but is regularly whitewashed by feminist publications for reasons of “solidarity.” So, despite my personal feelings about feminists, I am a little impressed with the boldness of Charlotte Raven’s new magazine, and look forward to reading it in the future for more unfiltered feminist opinions (we’ll see how long that lasts…).
Women have unpleasant thoughts at least as often as men, but they are much better at keeping them bottled up. Sometimes, however, as in the case of the woman who wrote the piece, a few drinks is all it takes to bring out the inner Himmler.
Because the magazine promptly chickened out and pulled the piece after much sputtering and outrage, I took the liberty to transcribe it from a screenshot I found to present it here under the fair use doctrine:
I once exclaimed to a group of friends, after a few drinks, that I believed in forced sterilization.
This shock announcement was pried out by one of the group, who also having had a few drinks, brought up that topic that you’re not supposed to talk about with people you like… ‘politics’.
I couldn’t see anyone else who was in the vicinity of the table, but the bar man was probably grimacing at the display that followed my outburst. A couple who were part of our group were shocked that I could ever say such a thing, one of them pleading that we stop the conversation. Everyone just wanted it to end. People began looking up taxi numbers. No one could imagine what had brought me to this extreme conclusion.
I came to this idea from a personal experience which involves a family member who decided to bring a child into this world. It was her choice, like lot’s [sic] of people everyday who have children, because that’s what happens, we reproduce.
However she also decided to neglect the child. Put the little girl in some terrible, dangerous situations which led to social services taking the child away from her. This isn’t something new or unusual, it happens all the time. I understand that sometimes people can make mistakes and sometimes people have problems of their own that need to be addressed.
One of our elderly relatives couldn’t bear to see the baby go into care and grow up feeling unwanted, so out of her own selflessness took on the child and her upbringing. This wasn’t as easy as written either. Social services became more of a hinderance [sic] than a help and she had to fight.
So there’s sort of a happy story going on here but what saddens me most is what happened next.
Does the mother seek help? Want to get her child back and earn the right to be called her mother and look after her? No she doesn’t.
Instead she continues to sleep about with men, picks an ex convict, gets pregnant again and surprise surprise the cycle continues.
Feminists of the early 20th century were generally in favor of sterilization. In fact, many hygienic movements, which included prohibition, were largely the result of women’s efforts, and went hand in hand with suffrage. Some justified sterilization on the grounds of compassion, some on grounds on racial hygiene (e.g. Margaret Sanger), and others merely to reduce public disorder.
It wasn’t until feminism became a Soviet-funded movement in the postwar era that these proto-National Socialist tendencies were finally purged from the ranks.
However, it appears that the instinct remains the same, and it comes out every now and then that it’s fairly common for feminists to want to prevent or do away with children that they do not approve of. What is Planned Parenthood’s true mission? If you stroll around the neighborhoods surrounding many of the institution’s abortion clinics, it’s kind of hard to shake the feeling that a certain kind of child is in the crosshairs.
Just the other day, I saw an old episode of Law and Order in which this theme was very much on display. A woman with a drinking problem had chosen to keep her child, and the female detective clearly thought she should do away with the thing.
Women naturally have strong feelings about reproduction. It is often said that men try to play at being God with their inventions and scientific achievements. The impulse to control and shape human reproduction is the feminine counterpart of this masculine tendency.
If an official eugenics policy ever arises again, you can bet there will be a lot of women behind it.
