“MeN sHoUlDn’T MaKe LaWs aBoUt wOmEn’S BoDiEs”

You’ve probably seen this drivel all over social media.

It’s supposedly the conversation-ender in the abortion debate: “You’re a man so you don’t get to have an opinion.”

Obviously we’ll set aside the fact that the Alabama governor who signed the abortion ban is a woman, as well as the fact that there are many, many women out there who oppose abortion.

Let’s talk about what laws men should be allowed to have a say in:

Yes, what an oppressive Patriarchy this country is. *rolls eyes*

If men can’t have a say in abortion laws, then why should women have any say in child support laws? Men make the overwhelming majority of child support payments, so maybe we should only allow men to have a say in how those laws are written.

How does that work for ya, ladies?

Sounds like a fair trade to me.
