World War II had two winners. Poland, though the victory came at a terrible price and wasn’t obvious until seventy years after the fact; and international communism. The latter is convulsing with hatred upon seeing what the former is doing: Poland increases restrictions on abortion:
Poland’s top court has ruled that abortions in cases of foetal defects are unconstitutional… Poland’s abortion laws were already among the strictest in Europe… The Council of Europe’s commissioner for human rights said the day marked a “sad day for women’s rights”
The focus of this post is not about abortion as such, but about women’s shit-tests. Or “fitness-tests,” as those things are also called.
The men of eastern Europe failed a giant fitness test by losing the Cold War. Yes, of course, everybody hated the Soviet rule but that’s linear logic. By the biological logic of women’s prerogative for reproduction with fit men in a safe environment, the two decades that followed 1989 brought austerity and uncertainty. And with the collapse of the former social system, a psychological shock not unlike after losing a war. Resultingly, Poland’s birthrates collapsed and many young women found a reason to move abroad.
The political fight over abortion can be framed as the country’s women testing their men. It’s said that feminism was the greatest shit-test in Western history, and it’s reasonable to conclude that license to murder a child is a cornerstone of feminism. So, thoughts on men passing that particular test? Multiple choice:
A. “Guys who get pussy support a woman’s right to choose.”
B. “Alphas pretend to agree with whatever the media planted in a silly girl’s head.”
C. “The wages of sin is death.”
There was a brainstorming session in an international communists’ conference room, during which, to much hand-rubbing, slogans that appear in the photo below were cranked out:
- “An alarm about women’s rights” – on the booklet
- “Abortion without borders”
- “First dignity, then fertility”
- “We will not be victims”
None of that is organic. It’s a foreign assault. Those and similar slogans, their diction and cadence, have an alien feel to them. To compromise with any of it would be even worse than a failed shit-test. It would be losing a war. Poland’s top court decided wisely.
