Texas pro-abortion protestors explained by one sign
Pro-abortion protestors in Texas planned some pretty unsavory tactics during the recent vote that approved a ban on abortion after 20 weeks.
Texas officials have confirmed they confiscated 18 jars of feces, a jar of urine, and various femine hygiene products that protestors were apparently planning to throw from the balcony in the senate chamber.
The tenor of the protest could be defined by this sign:
Sister Toldjah plucked this image off of Twitter and headlined it as evidence of the "abject failure of modern feminism." It's all that and a whole lot more.
That girl is obviously a minor. School is out in Texas in July so there's no truancy in play, but there is modesty in play. There's also intelligence, or the lack thereof, and kindness, or the lack thereof, and a sense of what is worth treating seriously and what is not.
Schools once taught rhetoric, which is really logic and how to build sound arguments to advance one's positions. Rhetoric also involves how to spot and destroy faulty arguments.
That sign doesn't rise to the level of argument at all. It's not an idea. It articulates no position. It's not anything more than an attempt to be cute and offensive, while trivializing what surely is a wrenching decision in any woman's life. It's terrible, sad, depressing, and wrong. As imagination and as rhetoric, it's just a boot to the face.
That sign marks the slow failure of a civilization, one undereducated child at a time.
The radicals are also making a big deal out of the fact that the Texas police were confiscating tampons while allowing people armed with guns to enter the gallery.
The cops had intel that the protestors were going to shower the senate floor with all sorts of disgusting stuff - including tampons and other feminine hygiene products.Good thing they checked the bags, otherwise they would have had a smelly mess on their hands.
Besides, I don't recall a right in the constitution to keep and wear tampons. As for guns...well, you know.
