If threats to contraception and abortion access in Western North Carolina cause women to fear sex, and a community in which women fear sex is extremely unpleasant for young men, then why aren’t young men up in arms in defense of contraception and abortion access?
My theory is that both sides of the debate have sought to define men as having some interest in keeping women barefoot and pregnant, but I very much doubt this is the case. Some young men pull Halloween pranks, but very few would intentionally produce fears so serious or chronic. The reproductive rights movement is being intentionally divided and conquered by gender.
