None of Your Business

LAST WEEK I GOT into a little bit of a Twitter war with Stefan Molyneux and his followers. It all started when I replied to a post he made about Tulsa Gabbard. The exchange went something like this:

It began with Stefan tweeting this comment:

“Wow Tulsi Gabbard is 38!

No kids yet, second marriage.

I hope she thinks about having kids…

Door is closing fast!

Ambition only can’t keep you company is your old age...

My response was:

“What the hell is wrong with you? A couple deciding to have children is a very personal thing and frankly none of your fucking business.”

Admittedly my reply was blunt but I stand behind it. Molyneux’s comment was downright rude. Apparently he and his followers thought differently.

For his lame defense, Molyneux claimed his comment was being critical about the Overpopulation theory. Funny since it didn’t even remotely imply that. Later he had a similar comment about Julianne Hough, on a subject that had nothing to do with the environment.

“Julianne Hough is 31.

No kids kinda, ‘woo woo.’

Having kids grounds you in ways nothing else can.

It’s ‘woo woo’ vs ‘womb womb.’…”

His tweet this time was in response to a story that Julianne had an unconventional energy treatment that  reported to look like a exorcism. This is hardly an advocacy of greenism by Hough. So how will he twist it to justify is obsession with ovulation?

The response from his lemmings was also a little baffling. Many accused me of pushing to censor Molyneux. Okay, at what point did I suggest that? I never even intimated that. I was simply expressing my opinion that his comment is well, creepy. I don’t necessarily disagree with his points. Children can be a blessing but only if you want them. Or does he think everyone should have children? He obviously has distain for Tulsa and Hough with how he talks down to them, why would he want them to spawn?

I’m not alone in this view that Molyneux’s obsessed with this. Admittedly many of his critics in the comments were progressive women, there were a few conservative women who were creeped out too. Since he limits the number of comments available to view, it’s hard to tell just how many there were.

Part of Molyneux’s logic is based in the Norman Rockwellian ideology that couples can only be fulfilled with children. He probably also believes that you should have a child if you relationship is breaking down. No, that’s not fair to the couple and certainly isn’t fair to the child.

In the age of dick pics and sexual harassment, women are more likely than ever to support feminism. This is particularly true within parts of the liberty movement, where many are feeling marginalized. This doesn’t mean that radical feminism needs to be embraced, but it would serve Molyneux better to not show his own metaphoric dick pic again. With his obsession I’m not going to hold my breath.
