The Avant Garde

December 2, 2009

It struck me today that while plenty of people would like to prevent the poorest of women from having children, no one wants to prevent males from fucking/raping them.  Whatever resources available to women of greater means to prevent it, to whatever limited extent any significant number of women is able to prevent or avoid fulfillment of male demands on female bodies, are not available to the poorest of women.  Where some women are able to postpone or prevent it by appealing to religious dictates against sex outside of marriage, the poorest women – women living on streets, eating out of garbage cans – aren’t “valuable” marriage material.  While some women can lock doors, call police – to whatever good may come of that – these measures aren’t even an option for the poorest of women.

They are literally on the front line of males’ war against females.  They are human shields for the rest of us.

    Police found Senora Wheeler and her four children huddled under a tree outside a building near Union Street and Earl Avenue in Lafayette early Saturday morning, said Det. Sgt. Scott McCoy.

    Officers said Wheeler was unconscious, and that one of her children — the 3-year-old boy — was found underneath her body.

    Why were they outside?

    The answer: Arrest her.
