Anti-Abortion Movement is Destined to Lose and Become Irrelevant: 1

A few months ago, I wrote a post about how the democratic party obsession with ‘gun control’ could cost them during the 2020 election cycle. It now seems that the republican party wants to one-up them by passing a series of hilariously bad anti-abortion laws in a few shithole.. I mean southern.. states. It has long been my belief that real differences between the democratic and republican party are largely restricted to socio-cultural issues such as gun and abortion rights. As many of you know, I have long held the position that trying to restrict or eliminate gun rights is not a winning strategy apart from 2-3 coastal states. We will now go into the many reasons why even attempting to pass laws which restrict the right to abortion is an even more stupid idea.

The temperance movement is an interesting, if peculiar, historical analogue to the modern anti-abortion movement. For those of you who aren’t interested in history, it was a big movement in the late 19th-early 20th century USA centered around banning the sale and consumption of alcohol. Its main promoters were male religious nutcases and proto-feminists (talk about weird alliances). Anyway, their campaign ultimately led to Prohibition in 1919 which led to a whole lot of unintended and highly counterproductive secondary consequences which then led to its subsequent repeal in 1933. So what did the decade (or so) of Prohibition lead to, other than the abject humiliation and almost total destruction of that movement. There is a reason why the only place most people have read about the Temperance movement is in history books.

Much of the night life we take for granted today is the result of the defiant public response to that futile and yes.. racist.. movement. Prior to Prohibition pushing public drinking underground for a decade, supposedly respectable women did not go to bars. The proliferation of speakeasies during prohibition changed drinking culture irreversibly and made it a cool activity which women started participating in rapidly increasing numbers. Also, previously most drinking establishments in USA served little other than a few popular types of beverages and greasy food. This changed after women started frequenting bars. Picking up women who weren’t prostitutes in a bar became possible only after bars became a cool place for women to visit. To make a long story short, it ended up normalizing and glamorizing drinking in ways previously considered impossible.

So let us now talk about why the modern anti-abortion movement is similar to the utterly failed and discredited temperance movement. The most obvious similarities between them are that they never enjoyed majority support and were dominated by loud zealots with racist/ nativist belief systems. But the similarities run far deeper. Both movements were fuelled by people who claimed to be solving some real world problem but were in fact about trying to control the lives of others and ruining their happiness. Have a look at the faces and read about personalities of people who pushed Prohibition. Did you notice a distinctive lack of physically attractive or intellectually gifted people among its ranks? Ever wonder why that was the case? Also, why didn’t most countries with similar levels of alcohol consumption never attempt Prohibition?

Now tell me something. Have you noticed that the anti-abortion types in USA are almost always obese older white men and post-menopausal white women living in ex-slavery southern states, old and fat black and Hispanic women and a small number of losers aka traditional conservative men? Some of you might counter my characterization by telling me about a couple of attractive young women who claim to be anti-abortion.. and you know what, I am sure they exist. However, it is undeniable that the anti-abortion movement derives most of its support from pudgy, sweaty, pre-diabetic, post-fertile men and women living in shithole.. I mean southern.. states. But why is that so? Why don’t you find anybody who looks half-attractive or has more than half a brain support the anti-abortion movement? And why is the anti-abortion movement so weak outside the heart of darkness.. I mean southern states? Also, why is it so weak outside USA?

The first obvious clue that the modern anti-abortion movement is doomed therefore comes from who supports it and who doesn’t. Let me put that in a different way, how many of you want to move to Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri etc? If not, why not? Well.. the simple answer is that flyover states (especially in the south) are dying. There are no well paying jobs with decent future prospects in those places. Also, those parts of the country also have rapidly deteriorating infrastructure and are generally shitty places to live in- at many levels. Historically, movements whose largest support base exists in declining and dying populations/ regions tend to end up as failures. Now compare the anti-abortion movement to the popularity of yoga studios among women- guess which is on an inexorable decline and which one is booming.

The second clue that the modern anti-abortion movement has no future comes from its very limited geographical spread. Let me explain.. how many developed or even developing countries outside USA have an anti-abortion movement of any significance. Why not? Well.. as I mentioned in a post from almost a year ago- the CONservative and reactionary elements within many nations (other than USA) got preferentially culled in WW1 and WW2. Let me rephrase that, only populations with unusually high levels of belief in traditional religions are capable of supporting the anti-abortion movement. Interest and belief in traditional religion has declined sharply over past two decades and this trend is even more marked in the younger generations. Ever met a non- or low-religious person who strongly supports the anti-abortion movement? Me neither..

Since we are at almost a thousand words, I will leave the remainder of my analysis for the next and hopefully last part of this short series. In case you are wondering, it will be about how the losers in anti-abortion movement lack the mental capacity to appreciate the magnitude of the multiple public relations disasters they are walking into. Then again, those idiots deserve it.

What do you think? Comments?

    In Europe, there is Poland.
    Is Poland, to use presidential term, shithole, or shining future of the world? You decide.

      Gets an “it depends” from me:
      1. (Legal) abortion is hard to get and
      2. Malls have teen prostitutes from what I’ve heard, so anyone from a well-developed Asian or Western country may discover the girls are more accepting that the coddled ones from the Asia or the West.

      Somewhat related: how to piss women off and make them feel inadequate (not enough men do this, which is why we have this widespread mentally-ill feminism):
      “Since you gave good pussy to these previous guys, then NOT giving your best pussy to me, means that you like them better than me? So, in that case, what do you need me for? Why don’t you go back to these better guys that you had before me? No!? In that case, you must give your best pussy to prove that it is not true. I am waiting for you to do that right now!

      You can reuse the fact that she gave pussy to previous guys to make her to absolutely anything actually. Furthermore, you can do that with all these women. The argument will force them to put out almost immediately. At the same time, these women are all pretty much perfect substitutes for each other. So, their future supply of pussy will not lock you in, because you don’t need it. The other women will take care of supplying instead. Hence, their game-theoretical situation is an absolute nightmare.”

      Looked her up, she’s an (Aussie – second only to NZ in terms of promiscuity, general entitled attitude and racism) fatty with a partner.
      Yes yes yes, how dare I judge her. Let’s see:
      1. I’m certainly more well off than her
      2. Have more free time
      3. Prefer better looking women
      4. Can actually go where they are
      5. Have an European visa
      6. Am Asian
      7. Know where to find the virgins

      “Men have no way to opt out of being parents”, well, the rejoinder to that is “Do you know how many sub-standard women think they qualify to be parents?” and “Many women are scared of being judged by other women, so have a hard time putting nice, responsible, not physically attractive men as their partner … plus will pull the I’m just not really a sexual person, okay, shit” statement.

      (Hopefully while recording) If a man speaks up in public about how his sexual needs are not being met by his wife, there will be a good chance after her eruption of indignation and fury, that he can get to “ditch the bitch” with little to no financial repercussions. Since women like to needle a lot of the men they’re with, that’s equality.

      To prove the double standard is real:

      Women make fun of guys with standards like the above …

      but very few people make fun of 5foot women with the standards 6-6-6
      “6 figure income – 6 feet tall – 6 inch dick”

    Great analysis and comparisons, as usual. You beat me to it (writing about this subject), but the anti-abortion movement is destined to fail, not only as a movement in itself, but it will ultimately fail and screw over so many people – and not just women, but men who fall victim to the “child support hustle” (including stupid CONservative men who pay women to have abortions after they regretfully raw-dogged a woman).

    As far as the prohibition, I saw a YouTube video by some MGTOW dude 3-4 years ago and how housewives wanted to keep alcohol and prostitution criminalized, even back then. Why? Because they felt their husbands spent too much time at bars and decided to go barhopping after hours instead of spending time with their wives.

      Women wanted to have alcohol and prostitution criminalised, because those activities divert the money that the men earned from getting to the wife.

      However, another set of women realised that with alcohol and prostitution, they could get a man to divert money from the wife to them.

      However, sex-positive women rarely have the guts to stand up against the prudes, also because some men can be goaded by the sex-negative women to beat the brazen ones up.

    ^This is the correct interpretation.

    As far as the “temperance movement” well, I remember dealing with Straight-Edger’s back in the day. They were the biggest hypocrites you ever did see…

    They would walk around with Xes on their hands, then two years later you’d see those same guys getting wasted on shots of hard liquor.

    Bunch of holier than thou fruits that couldn’t play metal to save their asses:

    Contrasted against real metal where the guys know how to play:
