If you listen to the Left, they would have you believe that the goal of every Right Wing conservative is to bring about The Handmaid’s Tale as reality. A world in which women are totally subjugated to men and are forced to carry babies to term for wealthy men against their will.
But like everything the Left complains about, it’s pure projection.
This is a story I covered before but it resurfaced again with a new twist.
In a nutshell, two gay men got married and wanted to have a kid. They discovered that their health insurance didn’t cover the $200,000 for IVF and surrogacy because two gay men not being able to conceive isn’t a medical problem.
Apparently these two men graduated from college and law school and never learned basic biology.
I feel like I need to write a LGBT sex ed book, it will be one page.
When two men love each other very much, or maybe don’t, but met up in a club or bath house or on Grindr, and they fuck each other in the ass, they will never get pregnant because that’s not how that works. That is how monkeypox spreads, though.
So now they are suing.
What caught my attention was the subheading.
In New York, a gay couple fighting to make their insurers pay for fertility treatment have found themselves in the middle of a culture war. What happens when the right to parenthood involves someone else’s body?
You do not have a right over someone else’s body.
Not at all.
we have a word for that: slavery..
What this is describing is pretty much the plot of The Handmaid’s Tale: An upper middle class couple can’t conceive a child so conscript a poor womb-having “gestational carrier” to have the baby for them, which they then take away and keep for themselves.
Who would have thought Gilead would be a bunch of gay men demanding poor women carrier their children for them.
Actually, given how we’ve seen the militant LGBT community let trans women run roughshod over real women, this should come as no surprise.
