This is possibly the most outrageously absurd Feminist claim ever.

Feminists like to syncreticise things. This is the ultimate absurdity: suicide is now Feminist empowerment.

There is no good word in English to express what I’m experiencing. Je suis époustouflé. The translation “I’m blown away” doesn’t do justice to the expression.

 

Brittany Maynard’s Death Will Help Redefine Feminism
“Taking the power back” is the ultimate feminist act.

Brittany Maynard’s decision to end her life Saturday at home in Portland, Oregon, caught the attention of many Americans since she announced her decision earlier this year. While much has been said about the terminally ill 29-year-old’s advocacy on behalf of the right-to-die movement, her choice also can be viewed through the filter of feminism: Maynard represented a woman taking control over her body and making decisions for that body that were best for her — and, ultimately, for her loved ones.

Maynard’s explanation to die echoes the rhetoric pervasive in feminist discourse about “choice.”

“I have been in charge of this choice, gaining control of a terrifying terminal disease through the application of my own humane logic,” she wrote in a blog post Oct. 23.

Similarly, in an op-ed for CNN, Maynard asked, “Who has the right to tell me that I don’t deserve this choice? That I deserve to suffer for weeks or months in tremendous amounts of physical and emotional pain? Why should anyone have the right to make that choice for me?”

    And yet when Sir Terry Pratchett came out about his desire to choose euthanasia when his Alzheimer’s gets too bad for him to handle, the Daily Mail decides to run this piece of crap: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-2004515/Terry-Pratchett-euthanasia-debate-Dont-fall-idea-old-disposable.html

    We already have mass voluntary euthanasia – we just don’t look at it that way. I’m personally shocked that more people aren’t jumping from tall buildings. How some people keep going, I do not know. Check this out:

    And people wonder why I sometimes get upset.
