This happened two week ago which on the internet means that it basically happened a decade. But, this is my blog, and I determine what I’ll post about. But anyway, last month supposed conservative intellectual Ben Shapiro posted the following tweet in response to a gun control supporter:
Actually, you can use your uterus to kill people legally in the United States. You can’t do that with guns.
I get that he’s trying to make some sort of point about abortion, but uteruses cannot initiate an abortion on demand. It sounds like Ben Shapiro and Todd Akin have studying anatomy together. Oh, you don’t remember Todd Akin? Allow me to refresh your memory:
If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down.”
Ben Shapiro’s whole schtick is that he’s the smartest person in the room. He speaks quickly and uses multisyllabic words, which shows how low the bar has been set amongst right-wing intellectuals. His big things are that he is better spoken that college students who attend his Q&A sessions and that he writes concise tweets. But in between telling black people that Wakanda isn’t real or bragging about how he didn’t have sex before marriage, Ben Shapiro should probably open a biology book at some point.
