Is that how it works now? I don't have kids, am I now not allowed to comment on how someone else treats there kids EVER? I'm a native born American, should the debate on illegal immigrants, be reserved only for the legal immigrants?

Is that how it works now? Only married people can weigh in on gay marriage?

Keep in mind, I'm pro choice, I just think it's idiotic that the way feminist try to shut down debate of any kind regarding this issue. Or any issue.

Bwahahahahahaha! I have often wondered tbis myself. Been the target of some scathing rhetoric, when I DARED to say what my male brain reasoned I wanted to say. Amazing, yea? In this age of "equallity amongst the sexes" , what a man is NOT allowed to comment on, by virtue of gender, alone.

Anyone can join any debate. That's how the First Amendment works.

NO ONE can tell a woman she doesn't get to choose. That's how Roe v. Wade works.

I guess some people want to have Roe V Wade overturned. The idea that those people aren't allowed to express that opinion IMO, is idiotic.

Men are all over the abortion debate, that doesn't mean they get the final say in some random woman's life however. They can tie up their own woman if they like, but then they will face the consequences. And when women have the ability to take thing into their own hands via herbs, teas whatever (the time is coming) they won't know and won't be able to do anything but bray. But they will always be in the debate.

Most of the people who have made policy decisions on abortion are men, so whoever told you men can't debate abortion is lying.

Wha?
Texas legislator is comprised of mostly men.
They seem to have a say.

Ah, I get it, an anti-woman thread.
Quelle surprise.

Who is not allowed to express their opinion?

The premise is a non-starter. We all have a vote at the ballot box and NO ONE may lawfully be deprived of their vote on any matter of civic concern by virtue of demographics.

Everyone (men & women) is entitled to give their opinion in such debates but only the women know what it feels like physically to be faced with the option of an abortion. So therefore, I think women's opinions on the matter should weigh more heavily than men's opinions in this case. The same would be true where whites and minorities are concerned (meaning everyone can give their opinion but the minorities' opinions should weigh more heavily than the whites' opinions) on issues effecting minorities.

Issues that effect minorities are the same issues that effect everyone else in this country, unless you are one of the people that want segregation and separation.
