Amy Coney Barrett is a woman but to feminists, she’s the worst kind. Not only is she the mother of seven children, but she’s also a successful Christian and a Republican. This combo makes her the antithesis of modern feminist thought. According to them, Barrett is nothing more than the patriarchy’s handmaid.
That’s why, during the confirmation hearings for Barrett, the same feminists that make it a huge deal that women are constantly attacked by society and are held down are currently attacking a woman and trying to hold her down.
As the Daily Wire first pointed out, these attacks didn’t just come from random Twitter users, these were blue-check journalists who were foaming at the mouth in rage at the fact that Barrett was sitting in the seat she currently was. As such, they began attacking her where they were most outraged, her motherhood.
“It’s a very weird thing to watch these old creeps congratulate a handmaid on her clown car vagina,” said feminist author Lauren Hough.
“You can tell a lot about how a judge will rule by her fertility so I’m glad she’s already proven hers because the cervix check really shouldn’t be done live. But I’m excited for her to share her casserole recipe and some stain-removal tips,” she added.

Washington Post writer Jill Filipovic flew in with her own comments that made it seem like Republicans are okay with Barrett being where she is because she first paid the toll of having a lot of children. It was a lazy attempt to mask her hatred of Barrett’s lifestyle while simultaneously slamming Republicans for being the party of the patriarchy.
“It does seem telling that the Republicans who have spoken so far have emphasized Amy Coney Barrett’s fertility and family size,” she tweeted. “It’s almost like the message is, ok you’re a very successful Career Woman, but you’ve justified your selfish ambitions by having seven kids so it’s ok.”

Washington Post writer Helaine Olen also chimed in, tossing out all the other things being discussed to focus in on the fact that Barrett was getting so much praise for being the mother of seven.
“By the way, I’m really tired of hearing about Amy Coney Barrett’s family. I’m sure she’s a great mom! I’m sure she’s better than me! (I can barely manage 2 kids, never mind 7). But she’s not getting voted into a parenting position. Let’s move on,” she tweeted.

It’s rather interesting that the blue-check feminists have focused in on this singular fact about Barrett. A multitude of things were discussed but these women seemed to zero in on this and one has to wonder why.
It’s obvious that feminists hate the idea of motherhood. They’ve looked down on it for some time and consider dedicating your life to raising children to be beneath women. Large families are frowned upon by the social justice community and often looked at as either a waste of a woman’s time or selfishness if you ask some of them.
To me, it too often looks like jealousy of happiness that feminists refused to have. They’ve been told that they don’t need men and that children are a hurdle, not a blessing.
Thing is, children bring a kind of fulfillment, and refusing them, or even looking down on it, robs you of it. It’s not a lifestyle choice, it’s in our biological programming. One way or another you’re going to feel the absence.
I think feminists feel it more than they say they do.
