A viral video showing a man telling abortion rights protesters that "your body is mine" and "you're having my baby" has sparked outrage on social media.

The man -- who was wearing an "America First" hat -- said: "You have no choice.  Not your body, not your choice, your body is mine and you're having my baby."

Stupid twitter algorithms that promote this kind of obvious crap.
The more reaction you get the better so publishing something clearly aimed at stirring up hate and protests is an easy way to get famous.

Maybe so.

I also see it as proof of an assertion I have stated many times before -- there are men who sincerely believe they have the right and privilege to control what women can and cannot do with their own bodies.

Of course, he may have just been delivering a verbal face-slap to the women, but I have heard men make similar claims when there were no women around.

The Patriarchy lives on.

It's something which is best ignored.....these people are trying to provoke a reaction, and delight in the attention.

There are misogynistic hate groups all over the US so this is not surprising. The US just thrives on hate and insanity.

My point is that these people actually exist, and not just in places like Iran and India, but right here in America, too!

It just seems that way-----based on the Internet.

Most people just want to live their lives, and seek to avoid confrontation.

Dude, it is happening in real life!  Come out your cubicle and take a good look around.

Well, after I became a moderator and had to deal with trolls who don't last long on WP, I must admit - there are guys like that in the US.
F-ing crazy but true.

I know what happens in real life----but part of it is caused by the hysteria the internet provokes.

You seem to be forgetting that I work in the NYC Criminal Court.

Yes, I think these guys are just a very noisy tiny minority.
They are making respectful discussion way harder.

That is what I have been trying to tell people!  Thank you for confirming their existence.  I think their false "proprietary" attitude toward women is one of the factors that drives both the "Pro-Life" and "Incel" movements.

I'm not sure the internet is too relevant, they existed well before the internet. The guy who shot up École Polytech was one of those types.

I think we're about to get a rude awakening just like we've faced with white nationalists in recent years. All of the people who were convinced that the problem was of a smaller scale will have to acknowledge the problem is actually much larger in scale.

I said "part of it," not "all of it."

Put some butter on it, and it'll go away.
