In 2014, the satirical paper The Onion ran the story “Woman Takes Short Half-Hour Break From Being Feminist To Enjoy TV Show,” which detailed a fictional feminist taking a break from over-analyzing supposed sexism on TV to actually sit back and enjoy a show.Last night’s Super Bowl went on for more than just a few hours – and our feminist friends got burned out after 30 minutes of enjoyment.
The subject of feminist outrage this Super Bowl? Did it have to do with a history of domestic abuse among any of the players? Was there an explicitly sexist ad aired during the game? Nope.
Meet the new feminist enemy: Doritos.NARAL Pro-Choice America attacked Doritos for “humanizing” a fetus depicted in ultrasound imaging in an ad promoting the popular snack chip that aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday night.
NARAL went after Doritos as part of a tweet-storm critiquing Super Bowl ads from a leftist/feminist point of view.
NARAL posted to Twitter Sunday evening upon seeing the Doritos ad during the Super Bowl broadcast.
“#NotBuyingIt – that @Doritos ad using #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses & sexist tropes of dads as clueless & moms as uptight. #SB50”NARAL is hostile to mandatory ultrasounds for pregnant women considering abortions, saying they are intended to “shame and harass women“.
The real reason they’re hostile to ultrasounds is because they realize it’s going to do a lot more to “humanize” humans. If you need any evidence of that, the co-founder of NARAL, Bernard Nathanson, later became pro-life after the development of the ultrasound.
According to LifeSiteNews, 78% of pregnant women who see an ultrasound (after considering an abortion) will reject an abortion. No one’s choice is restricted – it’s enhanced. The so-called “pro-choice” individuals among us really only support one kind of choice. Death.
