Gay men seeking abortions

No, I won’t say it with you.

No they’re not. Abortion rights are women’s rights. Men don’t need them. Men’s lack of need for them is what frees them up to play football and boss women around.

Abortion rights are of course lesbian rights and bi women’s rights, and they’re rights for women who call themselves men, but they’re not gay men’s rights, because, again, men don’t need them.

Men don’t need them in more than one way – that is, there’s more than one way men don’t need them. Men don’t need abortion rights because men can’t get pregnant, and also because men aren’t the subordinate sex. The two are entangled. The ability to get pregnant is primary, but the social status, the power differential, the hierarchy is definitely the engine.
