So I basically live under a rock, meaning I don't watch news and am not up to date on current events and politics, and have no friends to discuss things with. I'm not sure if what I'm about to write is in any way accurate or if I'm missing some big piece of the puzzle, so please feel free to correct me or enlighten me as you see fit (but please be nice!).
But even as far removed as I am, I am noticing that the 2 major political groups in the US have both adopted policies that are/will a have far reaching, negative impact on women's rights.
On the left we have the trans activists erasing women's biology, rights and spaces, and on the right we have the abortion abolishonists and Christian family hierarchy upholders, with the husband as the front and center, ruler of his domain, threatening female bodily autonomy.
Both are seriously detrimental to women's rights and advancements and it's starting to scare me. It seems like a huge deal to me but it doesn't seem to even be a topic of discussion outside of radfem spaces... I almost feel like it should be a topic for r/conspiracy TBH.
Historically, these 2 parties (Democrats and Republicans) have always held the majority votes. So it seems like regardless of the results of the 2020 election, women are just fucked?
Am I missing something here? How is no one seeing this as a calculated attack on women? Or even considering it questionable?
I'm at the point where I'm just baffled by the fact that people don't even acknowledge women's suffrage and the continuous threat and discrimination we face. People are denying that sexism and the gender wage gap even exist. Is this gaslighting on a major scale or am I just crazy? Lol.
I guess I just feel lost and alone and would really like some input from people I feel safe around and I'm thinking that's this subreddit.
