Another day another female apologist hamstering his way into pretending women have no agency. I’ll just give you the direct quote from the article
In an interview with Breitbart News, Baltimore Ravens tight end Ben Watson calls upon men to take responsibility for their actions and protect women and young girls from facing the devastation of abortion.
Really now? Men, have to protect women from abortion? are women some kind of comatose sex zombies that stand around waiting for men to impregnate them? are they somehow incapable of taking advantage of the massive tax payer funded efforts to provide them with a cornucopia of birth control options? What is this whiteknight on about exactly? more nonsense follows…
“When it comes to the black community, we represent a larger proportion of abortions than I would like, than any of us would like,” he explains. “And so, to me, it’s a big challenge to men, as well – not just black men, not white men, but just men in general – to step up and protect women, to protect young girls, to protect the pre-born.”
Let’s address this now because there seems to be a glut of this nonsense making it’s way into the manosphere lately. Women have the right to abort. They SHOULD have this right. Men should have something equally powerful. (They don’t but that is beside the point) Women don’t need to be “protected” from the ability to decide when they wish to reproduce, and it is not the responsibility of men to protect them. Period.
“Men were made to be protectors and caretakers, and a lot of what we’re seeing when it comes to this topic would be a thing of the past if our men would stand up and be men,”
You first moron.
Asked about what he anticipates now that America has a pro-life administration, Watson responds, “This is a heart issue. No matter who’s in office, the people’s hearts have to be changed when it comes to how we view life and how we esteem life. And that will affect what happens at the top.”
“My hope is that we have an administration that protects life at the forefront, and that it’s important to them to enact laws and to campaign for issues that are important when it comes to life,” he says.
Translation: I hope Trump pulls some good ol days victorian bullshit and forces men to take care of babies that even the women pregnant with them don’t want instead of aborting a first trimester non-human that isn’t even capable of consciousness yet.
