Men’s Rights Activists have discovered a new entirely hypothetical danger — that evil feminists, mad about the end of Roe V Wade, will force the government to mandate vasectomies for all pubescent boys.
Do you think vasectomies will become mandatory for boys at puberty in the future? asks a Men’s Rights Redditor called hotoros in a post today.
I’ve seen a lot of left-wing Twitter users push this lately, they say it should be done to protect teen girls from getting pregnant and because of the anti-abortion laws being passed. No country prohibits any form of genital mutilation regardless of how damaging it is on boys and circumcising boys is socially acceptable. With how gynocentric the west is, I could see this being made mandatory on male children in 5-10 years if women keep demanding it. No “human rights” organisation would give a shit if this happened … .
He’s right about one thing: people are talking about this on Twitter. But the intention behind the tweets isn’t, for the most part. to actually move this forward as a real political demand, but rather to rattle anti-abortionists and point out their hypocrisy in a soon-to-be-post Roe America.
The point being: if the government can force pregnant people to give birth by banning abortion, shouldn’t the government take action to make sure that no unwanted pregnancies happen in the first place by forcing sperm-spouters to get snipped?
Some leavened their tweets with black humor:
Over in the Men’s Rights subreddit no one is laughing. And while a number of respondents point out the obvious — that this is never, ever, ever going to happen — others lash out against this hypothetical oppression.
Some get what the mandatory vasectomy advocates are trying to do:
A few miss the point entirely.
Yeah it does, doesn’t it? That’s only just the point of the thing in the first place.
Meanwhile, a eugenicist steps briefly out of the closet:
One forward-thinking fellow manages to envision a happy ending to all this:
And then there’s one guy who threatens to become the Unabomber.
I think he’s probably just joking. But you never know with these guys. Don’t open any odd-looking packages you weren’t expecting.
