    What's the end game?

    What is it that "they" are trying to do?

    Control women, period.  Own women.  Be able to tell women what they can do and when they can do it.

    and I'd also like to know if you think it's really possible to achieve.

    Hell, no.  Sure, maybe in this backward ass town or that backward ass town, sure.  Or maybe across the country, but that won't last long, trust me.

    To every millionaire who decries they don't want their grandchildren paying for the deficit, I say: PAY MORE TAXES NOW and your grandkids won't have a deficit burden.

      and many Iranian women are highly educated.

      I see exactly where we're heading, and once you reach a certain point, it's hard to return to where you were without bloodshed.

      Legislation forcing rape victims to give birth would have seemed radical twenty years ago. Now it's mainstream Republicanism.

      What's the next step? How about virginity tests as a prerequisite for federal student loans? Not so far-fetched with the current legislators.

      This shit can happen when people are distracted with stuff like no jobs and trying to keeping their heads above water.

      Be prepared for more insanity.

        made a point that hundreds of years ago when men only wanted to marry virgins, it was because so they would know if they were the father of their baby.  No paternity tests around at that time.

        I'm probably gullible, but that made a little sense.
