Women Aren’t People, They’re “Hosts”

April 26, 2017

Excellent essay reblogged from  BroadBlogs  concerning how women’s human rights are stripped in many societies even now. The religious and political right in this country bring this to the legislative arena on an increasing basis. Many of us refer to this as a War on Women, which right wing ideology claims is a myth, but what better name exists for it – especially when it is primarily men doing the legislating with little or no input from women? -rjc

Handmaids Tale. Women are just hosts, not people.

Fertile women of Gilead’s Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu, airing today) were not seen as people. They were mere vessels carrying the babies of men.

Too many theocratic Republican legislators see women the same way today.

Like Oklahoma Rep. Justin Henry who asserted:

I understand that they (women) feel like that is their body (but) what I call them is, is you’re a ‘host.

Women don’t have bodies. They are incubators for other people’s bodies.

Do baby girls have bodies until they become fertile and then lose them?

    Time hasn’t changed a whole lot unfortunately! Today women do most of the cleaning cooking serving and all menial jobs most men won’t do! At the same time, certain women in power exploit women of color to do their menial jobs as nanny’s housekeepers etc!

  2. The Handmaid’s Tale is a little too close to reality as we can see with the Republican war on women. Thanks for re-blogging!

      You are delusional. Trump treats women as nothing but sex objects. Any woman that voted for that pig has no self-esteem.
