BLOG Freedom Matters Podcast: Is Being a Woman Only a State of Mind?

By Bob Trent Posted on: | May 31, 2016

“Misogyny plays a really big part in all of this, that a man who goes to these lengths will be a better woman than someone who is just born a woman.”  
-Germain Greer, Feminist

Prominent feminist Germain Greer was told she couldn't speak at her college because she believes someone who is born male can't fully experience life as a woman. On Freedom Matters this week, Alison Howard joins the discussion to explore the idea that if being a woman is simply a state of mind as many liberals suggest, then feminist arguments for equality, empowerment, and social justice are thrown into question.

Rep. Joe Kennedy III introduced legislation that would limit the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act to specify that religious exceptions should not apply to “protections against discrimination or the promotion of equal opportunity” and “access to, information about, referrals for, provision of, or coverage for, any health care item or service.” If passed, the law would prevent business owners from living and working according to their beliefs about marriage, and would not allow faith based or pro-life organizations an exemption from the Obamacare Abortion-Pill Mandate. Is Kennedy saying the Supreme Court got Conestoga Woods/Hobby Lobby wrong?
