A feminist blogger, Lena, has said she aborted her baby after finding out it was a boy because of her past bad experiences with men.
She claims to be a feminist, fighting for women’s rights ‘to the point of eschewing a career’. She tells the story of how back in 2012 she found out she was pregnant, describing it as a ‘diagnosis’, with the father being a ‘donator’.
When she went for an ultrasound and was told the baby was a boy, she was extremely angry. Her man-hating reaction was, “In shock, I started crying, weeping at the thought of what I was about to curse the world with. Crying, sobbing, uncontrollable weeping, mental anguish the likes of which may only be experienced by those who have had their lives destroyed by war.”
Ultimately she went to an abortion clinic and had the pregnancy terminated.
She concluded, “I don’t hate men, I hate the patriarchy, what men, and even some women, turn into, I wasn’t going to let that happen with my offspring. The chances were greater that it would with a male, it was unacceptable. If the curse returns, I would do the exact same thing all over again.”
People have been reacting to her blog entry with outrage.
