UC Riverside prof calls heterosexual relationships ‘tragic,’ bad for women

According to a California professor, the very bond that prolongs the human race is “tragic,” “a tragedy,” and bad for women.

University of Riverside professor Jane Ward spoke to Insider about her research for a new book, “The Tragedy of Heterosexuality.”

“It really looks like straight men and women don’t like each other very much, that women spend so much time complaining about men, and we still have so much evidence of misogyny,” Ward said according to Insider. “From an LGBT perspective, [being straight] looks actually very tragic.”

Ward discusses the pandemic and the uptick in divorce and studies showing less satisfaction in sexual relationships as proof that straight relationships are bad.

“I think in some ways the pandemic is revealing the tragedy of heterosexuality to people who might not have otherwise paid attention to it,” Ward said.

Insider reports that she has studied these topics for years and analyzes the ways that straight relationships hold both women and men back.

She claims to feel sorry for men who are stuck in a toxic masculinity culture that teaches a need for women and pressures men to treat their partners poorly.

One homosexual interviewee for the professor’s book discussed feeling sorry for straight women.

“I really sympathize with these women, but at the same time it makes me feel alienated from them,” the interviewee told Ward. “Our lives become so different when theirs revolves around attachment to a cruel, insensitive, self-centered, or simply boring man.”

Interestingly, science suggests that 100% of babies result from a man and woman— meaning our entire existence as a species relies on this natural, but apparently “tragic,” relationship.

Pro-Abortion Protesters Allegedly Take Abortion Pills Outside Supreme Court

Abortion Pills

In order to protest Mississippi’s ban on most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, pro-abortion protestors allegedly took abortion pills – which are used to end pregnancies within the first 10 weeks – outside of the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

As reported by Fox News, “At least four women were seen taking pills as others cheered. The group Shout Your Abortion did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the video and protest.”

“Abortion pills forever,” the protesters repeatedly chanted in a view posted on Twitter by feminist activist Erin Matson Wednesday morning.

“Epic action from @ShoutYrAbortion — people took abortion pills outside the Supreme Court!” Matson captioned the video.

 

On Wednesday, protesters gathered outside the Supreme Court as the Justices prepared to sit for oral arguments in a case that could potentially overturn Roe v. Wade.
The case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, is over a 2018 law in Mississippi that bans most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

The 1973 decision Roe v. Wade and the 1992 decision Planned Parenthood v. Casey forced states to allow women to get an abortion until the point of viability, which is considered to be around 20 to 24 weeks of pregnancy.

Mississippi originally said in its petition to the Court that the case does not require them to overturn Roe v. Wade or Planned Parenthood v. Casey. In July, however, Mississippi shifted its position, writing, “Roe and Casey are egregiously wrong” and said the Court should overrule those decisions.
