"They can choose not to have sex."
I was confronted with this argument during a discussion on female rights/equality.
Besides being a fallacy of ‘biblical’ proportions, (see what I did there.)- Please let me explain.
If a woman’s body belongs to her, then she has the right to exchange sexual favors for money, she has the right to be photographed however she likes, she has the right to either take or refuse any drugs, medicines, vitamins, and foods (natural or unnatural) that she chooses. She has the right to refuse or consent to medical treatments according to her own medical and moral beliefs. She has the right to give birth how and where she chooses, attended by persons of her own choosing. She has the right to defend her own body and her own life from aggressive attack. She has the right to use her own time, talents, and energy to earn property, and the right to dispose of that property according to her own values.
If you think Jesus can save us from tyranny then you are a fool. If you think Mohammed can save little girls from getting their clitoris chopped off, then you are also a fool.
Lennon was right when he wrote and recorded the song, "Woman is the Nigger of the World."
"We make her paint her face and dance."
