Forget women. Nobody cares what happens to them anyway. (By "nobody" I mean anybody with power.) Let's talk about men.
The problem with feminism is that it concentrates on women. That is very foolish. Nobody--I say again--gives a crap about women. Feminists must concentrate on men, the only people who are real people, as opposed to pretend, not-quite-people people. You know, women.
How do men suffer under the present system? (They are the only ones that count, you know.) Quixote at Shakesville points out that if our ruling class can take away women's rights they can take away men's rights, but civil rights violations are a means, not an end. The Stupak amendment does something much more interesting than that--it found a way to deny a portion of health care coverage for half the population for moral reasons. Morality! What a scam! Just get a few bishops--who owe you big for ignoring the cover-up of the rape of children, another powerless group--to give you moral justification to deny health care! It's brilliant!
And even more brilliant is the aftermath. Woman, in turn, are protesting the coverage of drugs like Viagra, and soon insurance companies can deny payment for those incredibly popular pills too! Corporations can play the public like violins, pitting priests against women, women against men, adults against children, young adults against the old. It'll work like a charm. Half the world is just dying to deny rights to the other half, and corporations can save a fortune.
