The Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade has sparked a growing number of factually incorrect, unhinged responses from many prominent voices in the sports and entertainment world.

Football star Megan Rapinoe unsurprisingly contributed to the mind-boggling redefinition of language in her statement on the statement:

“I just can’t underestimate how sad and how cruel this is. I think the brutality is the point. Because this is in no way pro-life, this way of thinking, or political belief, is accompanied by a complete lack of motivation around gun laws, it comes with a pro-death penalty, it comes with anti-healthcare, anti-prenatal care, anti-childcare, anti-pre-K, anti-food aid, anti-welfare, anti-education, anti-maternity leave, anti-paternity leave.

And it’s very frustrating and discouraging, and frankly just infuriating to hear that this is why people want to end abortion rights and end this vital aspect of women’s rights – not just health care.” and general basic security in this country, but her bodily autonomy and the right to freedom and the pursuit of happiness and freedom is under attack in this case. “This isn’t pro-life. And it’s just incredibly discouraging.”

Even if you agree with abortion, it’s absurd and purposefully inaccurate to label a decision that does nothing to ban abortions as “cruel.” The Court returns to the states to determine through legislation what the rules should be in their condition.

Rapinoe also apparently believes that killing unborn babies by no means meets the definition of “cruel” and that the possibility of more children being born is not “pro-life.”

She went on to blame all the men for the Supreme Court interpreting the Constitution in a way she disagreed with:


You are allowing a violent and consistent attack on the autonomy of the women’s body, on women’s rights, on women’s minds, on our hearts, on our souls,” Rapinoe said when asked what her message to men, as a monolith, would be. to be. “We live in a country that is forever trying to tear down what you’ve made possible, what you’ve been so privileged to feel all your life.

The fact that this kind of rhetoric is encouraged and promoted by glowing media reports celebrating her bravery and “emotional response” is outrageous and unforgivable.

Aside from the ridiculous hyperbole that anyone who disagrees with her stance is pro-cruelty,” she engages in the same hypocrisy we typically see from those who share her ideology.

According to Rapinoe, her body, and other women’s bodies are under attack. Still, as Katie Pavlich astutely points out, if she were asked to describe what a woman is, she would have no answer:

Women to Rapinoe is a tool that can be used and discarded as needed. When it suits her, she’s a fierce advocate for what she defines as women’s rights. But when it comes to the basics of biology and fairness in competition, she’s more than happy to erase them.

All this isn’t about protecting women’s rights; it’s about political stance. Rapinoe’s ideology demands that she participate in the inevitable hypocrisy by claiming that she cares about women when she cannot define them. And she is more than happy to oblige.

For her, somehow, it’s not a “violent and consistent assault on the female body’s autonomy” when biological men transition, competes in women’s leagues, and physically dominate their opponents.

Claiming that the Supreme Court’s decision is an attack on a woman’s body is much less convincing if you can’t agree on what a woman’s body is.

Whether or not you think the Court’s ruling was justified, Rapinoe’s brand of inaccurate, hypocritical activism is yet another example of the absurd contradictions at the heart of modern progressive ideology.
