IU Nurse Hate Tweets Aimed at White Men

An Indiana University Health nurse has been fired after tweeting some pretty disturbing things about white men.

The nurse, who was identified as Taiyesha Baker, deleted the account shortly after the tweet went viral and IU Health issued this statement:

“IU Health is aware of several troubling posts on social media which appear to be from a recently hired IU Health employee. Our HR department continues to investigate the situation and the authenticity of the posts. During the investigation, that employee (who does not work at Riley Hospital for Children) will have no access to patient care.”

IU definitely took the right course of action because while people certainly have freedom of speech, there ARE consequences to what you say on social media or in public. Especially since someone with such an obvious racist mindset is caring for people in life or death situations and that prejudice could impact how they care for a patient.

Sadly, this kind of mindset is becoming more prominent with the third wave feminism crowd. Just last week Emily Lindin, an award winning documentary filmmaker tweeted that she didn’t care if innocent men went to jail over sexual assault accusations.

Instead of a so-called “War on Women” it appear to me that there’s a very real “War on White Men” and it’s raging in full force from the feminist camp.

Dear Feminists: We’re Tired of Your War on Pro-Life Women

While the Comey hearing was going on yesterday, feminists were trying to re-direct people’s attention away from the former F.B.I. director’s testimony. They’re still screeching about the possibility that they’re actually going to have to pay for their own birth control and that access to abortions will be severely limited or, God forbid, taken away from them.

Just last week, the NY Times published a piece titled “Trump Rule Could Deny Birth Control Coverage to Hundreds of Thousands of Women.” The author warns that if the new health care law passes, women will not be able to get the free birth control that Obamacare provided to them and more employers, like The Little Sisters of the Poor, could deny insurance coverage for birth control based on religious objections.

SO WHAT? Pay for your own contraceptives! Birth control is not that expensive – around $9 per month for a pack of pills for those who are uninsured – and they can easily be obtained at health clinics all over the United States. And on a side note: insurance companies will cover birth control that’s being used for medical reasons – the only thing Christian run corporations objected to was birth control being used as abortifacient drugs.

Planned Parenthood also tried to use their scare tactics too, tweeting that de-funding the organization would leave women with nowhere else to turn. Fact check: there are 20 community health clinics for every 1 Planned Parenthood and most offer the same services, if not more, than the abortion giant.

Online news magazine Marie Claire recently tried to expose Evangelical Christians who they say want to de-fund Planned Parenthood, yet use their clinics. The article makes some pretty bold claims that young adults who grow up in the church aren’t getting “honest medical information” because their religion shies away from talking about sex or contraceptives. They even allude to the fact that young adults are “traumatized” from the religious teachings they received early in life.

And apparently 13% of all abortions are for Evangelical Christian women, although there’s no source or explanation of where that statistic came from.

Well known feminist writer Jessica Valenti also dropped an opinion piece yesterday, stating that “a law that bans abortion is a law that mandates pregnancy. And forcing women to be pregnant is a clear-cut denial of freedom.”

It’s humiliating to be put in the position of having to convince someone of your humanity. I’m tired of women having to explain themselves to people who will never know what it feels like to be pregnant when you don’t want to or cannot be. How many studies need to be done? How many articles do we have to write, or stories do we have to share, before people will accept that a woman’s ability to control what happens to her body is as necessary to her as oxygen? When will they realize that denying us this is deadly? An abortion protected my health and possibly my life.

WOW. That first sentence is so hypocritical and sad. How long have we pro-lifers been trying to convince liberals that the unborn are human too?  That a baby is a separate body within your own and they also have a Constitutional right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness just like the rest of us who walk this planet?

And as a side note: Valenti laments that an abortion protected her health and possibly her life. Funny, firearms do the very same thing for many people, yet she’s openly against anyone owning a gun.

I don’t know about you, but I am tired of abortion advocates whining about their rights being taken away when they themselves take away the rights of the most vulnerable in our society. It’s almost daily that some new piece pops up about how women are living out the Handmaid’s Tale right now.

Please. The pro-choice movement is overwhelmingly controlling the narrative that there’s a “War on Women” when in fact, the war is really on conservative women. Those of us who speak up for the unborn are then demonized by their own gender for not conforming to feminist standards, even if we believe in equality in pay and work.

Ladies of the GOP, Start Leading

Now that the House has passed a new health care bill, the Senate is hard at work on their version. The left has already been quick to point out that there are no women working on the bill and that once again “old, white men” are making healthcare decisions for women.

While I completely disagree that the male members of the GOP are doing this purposefully to try to control and harm women, I do think they need to step back and see that they have a very serious image problem with women. The left is winning this narrative and women overwhelmingly vote Democrat.

The Republican Party has no shortage of smart, independent women in politics and they’d be wise to include them when working on legislature pertaining to health care, especially if it affects women.

Sure, women voted these men in office but when image is everything, having a little estrogen on your team will go a long way to prove to the feminist harpies that you’re not the party of old white men and sexist pigs. Trust me, the GOP really doesn’t want women dying in the streets because they can’t get the healthcare they need. But the liberals have crafted a very convincing perception that they do simply because it doesn’t appear that any women are giving input on legislation that pertains to them.

So here’s a little advice to the men of the GOP: there are twenty-one Republican women serving in Congress. Reach out to them. Get them on your team and then maybe then the narrative will start to change and bring new voters over to the right side.

Women Dressed as Handmaids Protest Anti-Abortion Laws at Texas Capital

Wendy Davis is at it again. Today in Austin, Texas a group of women dressed as handmaids from the popular Handmaid’s Tale book/TV show staged a protest against anti-abortion bills. The protest was organized by Davis’ group, Deeds Not Words and NARAL of Texas.

During the protest, which was live streamed on Facebook (and can be viewed below), the women are shown holding signs with political protest statements about money being given to “fake health care clinics”, the 24 hr. waiting period for abortions and forced sonograms. The biggest and boldest sign declared “NO MORE ABORTION RESTRICTIONS. NONE!”

https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fprochoicetexas%2Fvideos%2F10155373741604407%2F&show_text=0&width=560

The three young ladies in the middle each read stories of how Planned Parenthood saved lives. One was in high school with two children already and couldn’t “bear to give birth again. I didn’t want to be pregnant. I didn’t want to have another baby.”

Another was raped on a date in high school and when she discovered she was pregnant, her only thought “was to kill myself because I didn’t have any other option. Thankfully, I had a strong, supportive mother who took me to get an abortion. I made a decision to save a life – mine.”

I. Me. Mine.

Abortion is all about the woman and what SHE wants, with no regards to the other human life growing inside her. To the pro-choice movement, innocent babies don’t matter because they aren’t born and therefore aren’t considered people even though science will tell you they share the same DNA as you and I.

Shame on these women and shame on America for continuing to let it happen.

Let’s Talk About “The Handmaid’s Tale”

This week Hulu released the first three episodes of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Based on the book by Margaret Atwood, the series is set in a future dystopian United States which is now called Gilead. The country has been stricken with an infertility crisis and population is rapidly declining. The women who are deemed fertile have been rounded up and forced into sex slavery to bear children for the elite rulers whose wives are barren.

The patriarchy and theocracy have taken over in a return to traditional values and women’s roles in society have been reduced to bearing children, cooking, cleaning, shopping and remaining meek. They are not allowed to read, travel alone and there are eyes watching them everywhere to make sure they behave.

The main protagonist, Offred (played by Elizabeth Moss), was once a successful, happily married woman with a daughter but after the infertility crisis, the original Constitution was amended and women were stripped of all rights. Her bank account was frozen and she was fired from her job. Since she was still able to bear children, she was violently taken from her family and thrust into her new role as a handmaiden for The Commander and his wife.

The theocrats at the top claim that God sent the plague to punish society for the use of birth control, the morning after pill and abortion. Rape is the woman’s fault because she led the man on and women who embrace sexual freedom are called “sluts” and “dirty women.” The women who were in academia were rounded up and sent to “the colonies” where they work to their death because they dared to think for themselves.

Gay people are also looked down upon and are called “gender traitors.” Most are hung but the fertile lesbians are mutilated so they can’t enjoy sex but can still bear children.

Since the show’s debut, feminists have been praising it for drawing attention to what’s going on currently in the fight for reproductive rights under the Trump administration. Just this week there was a piece in The New Yorker titled “We Live in the Reproductive Dystopia of The Handmaid’s Tale.” The article draws comparisons between the book/show and what it calls a Republican, religious, misogynist assault on women’s reproductive rights in 2017.

I hate to break it to the author (and the feminists on social media) but there is no war on women’s reproductive rights. Republican’s don’t want to take away your birth control or access to health care. What they DO want to do is grant the same human rights you and I enjoy to the unborn, who are every bit as human as you or I.

While the show is incredibly well done and the story intriguing, it also makes a lot of digs at Christianity and the misconception of how women are treated within the church. And if someone watching “The Handmaid’s Tale” truly thinks the church wants to send women back to the 1800s, they obviously have a very skewed view of religion. The way Offred and the other women are treated align more with Islam than Christianity but it’s doubtful the left will even see the parallels there and instead will choose to point a finger at the Christian church and scream “this is what’s going to happen to you if you refuse to pay for our birth control and abortions.”

According to people who have read the book, the resistance is coming on the show. I’m looking forward to seeing how it all plays out and what other misconceptions about conservatives the plot will bring.
