Is an article entitled “Bro-Choice: How #HB2 Hurts Texas Men Who Like Women” from the “Burnt Orange Report” [My attempt to “de-euphemize” in brackets]:
For those of us guys [note that the author avoids using the word “men”] who like [because love – or marriage – well, that’s a stretch] girls — you know, like [i.e., want to have sex with] them like them — and want to have relationships [sex] with them that may last anywhere from a few minutes [yay!] to many years [meh], we need to think about how this bill, by curtailing the bodily autonomy [ahem, “bodily autonomy” is what one possesses before engaging in an activity which carries the risk of temporarily losing one’s bodily autonomy] and sexual freedom [the most important of all freedoms, even the freedom to live] of women, hurts us, too [because it means less sex for us]. We need to stand with women in their fight to control their own bodies [so long as the control they fight for involves being free to kill their unborn children, because children are an obstacle to consequence-free sex].
Your girlfriend’s/wife’s life will be in danger. [How much does this matter to us? Enough to fight for the right to kill unborn children but not enough to stop having risky unprotected premarital sex. Yep, we really care about this issue]. Making abortion inaccessible for millions of Texas women is going to put them in danger if they ever need to terminate a pregnancy. Black markets for unsafe abortions will emerge, and women will be pushed into potentially fatal back-alley abortions. That’s your girlfriend’s life we’re talking about. [Again, it matters enough to kill kids, just not enough to stop having sex].
You want to decide when and if to have kids. This bill will force thousands of Texas men into unplanned fatherhood [How is it unplanned? Do “thousands of Texas men” not understand where babies come from?] by making it impossible for women to access an abortion in the event of an unplanned pregnancy. [Actually, the decision to have risky unprotected premarital sex is what forces men into unplanned fatherhood] Even if you want to have kids, you probably don’t want an accident [choosing to have risky unprotected premarital sex = accident] to make you a father before you’re psychologically ready and able to care for a child. If you don’t want kids [then you shouldn’t be having sex?], you don’t want the narrow, personal views of politicians in the state government to force you to have them.
Your sex life is at stake. [Here we go. This is what matters most]. Can you think of anything that kills the vibe faster than a woman fearing a back-alley abortion? [Yeah, I can think of a few]. Making abortion essentially inaccessible in Texas will add an anxiety to sex that will drastically undercut its joys. [And again, sex is all that matters]. And don’t be surprised if casual sex outside of relationships becomes far more difficult to come by. [And that would be bad because? Oh right, casual sex is fun].
Are you willing to roll the dice with your girlfriend’s health and safety? [Option A: Yes, I’ll keep having risky unprotected premarital sex with any woman I’m attracted to who’s willing to have sex with me! Forget the consequences! Option B: No, keep abortion legal!]
Option C: Actually love the women in your life. Love them by taking responsibility for your choices and your potential offspring. Don’t tell her that killing an unborn child is an acceptable part of your relationship with her. Be a man.
