Last week the Obama campaign unveiled a slideshow entitled, “The Life of Julia,” which was intended to show how much Obama, via the American taxpayer, has done and plans to do for women.
An honest feminist would be insulted by “The Life of Julia,” because its basic assumption is that women are unable to make it on their own without the patriarchal government’s assistance from cradle to grave.
I have been pondering “The Reproductive Life of Julia” under the Obama administration and have developed my own slideshow. Click on any of the individual slides in this post, and they will appear in enlarged slideshow format…
