PREGNANT MOTHERS BEING ALLOWED TO PARK IN HANDICAPPED SPACES
I was listening to the news last night and a story came on about how some stores have started putting in parking spots closer to the entrances for pregnant women ONLY, like what they do for handicapped people. Of course, the men who made them pregnant will now start gripping about why they couldn't get a spot closer to the store entrance as well, it's discrimination, etc.,
Well that's another story.
Anyway, they interviewed a legislator who wanted to make a law mandating pregnant women automatically be able to use the handicapped parking spots from their third month of pregnancy, as they can send away for a sticker for six months and use it until delivery.
Makes a lot of sense actually...
Then, they interviewed a gender neutralized feminist from NOW who claimed NOW was against the whole idea: as pregnancy wasn't a handicap, pregnant women should be treated like everyone else, yada, yada, yada.
My first stunned thought was: who the hell designated this gender neutralized feminist to represent pregnant women????
That's my question.
What gives them the right to decide these things for mothers?
Even when they poked their big fat noses into that hearing where Congress wanted to bring those women in Iraq home (a good number of them single mothers) and Kim Gandy of NOW joined with the Pentagon to stop them.
Who in the heck gave NOW or any other gender neutralized group of feminist the okay to represent mothers?
That' s my question????
