Lauren Duca lists herself as a freelance journalist, but we know her best from her work at Teen Vogue, as well as her 10-city “Stop Kavanaugh” tour and her New York University course on feminist journalism, which hopes to fight the idea that there should be “balance” in journalism, which compels journalists to look at the other, incorrect side of an issue as well as the correct, feminist, intersectional one.
Now she’s calling on the patriarchy to jump into her Twitter timeline and join in the fight against Georgia’s “fetal heartbeat” abortion law, which Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called a “backdoor ban,” because that six-week-old fetus is nothing more than being two weeks late on your period.
Only women on my timeline are talking about the Georgia abortion ban.

“Men shouldn’t get an opinion on abortion/women’s health laws”

Don't want to "#mansplain" ??

Maybe Brian Sims can drive down from Pennsylvania and bully some old women outside of an abortion clinic. Or teen girls.
Nah, we were told we had no say in the matter. See how far you can get without the "patriarchy" ?

So you need help from the patriarchy?

Sorry. As a man, I've been told by women that I'm not allowed to have an opinion on abortion. You're on your own.

Sorry. No uterus, no opinion.

Last I heard, men aren't allowed an opinion on abortion so yeah, I'm gonna sit this one out

Look I’m pro choice, but what happened to “men can’t have an opinion on women’s issues”? So we can, our opinions just have to match yours to be relevant?

I thought it wasn’t our body? ?
Sorry, but I couldn’t help myself. It is ironic though that women don’t want men making a decision for them, but need our support in the fight? Y’all gotta sort that out for me. We should all get a say.

Fuck that. You’ve spent my entire time on twitter telling men to shut up. #OwnIt

Nah. Tired of being attacked. Y’all go ahead and lead and handle it.

That’s just the toxic masculinity talking.
As someone who wasn't aborted, this guy will be on the side of pro-life, thanks.

Oh, Alyssa Milano, you just got dissed.
If a fetus is a person at 6 weeks pregnant, is that when the child support starts? Is that also when you can’t deport the mother because she’s carrying a US citizen? Can I insure a 6 week fetus and collect if I miscarry? Just figuring if we’re going here we should go all in.

Sure, I’m down.
Let’s go all in. https://t.co/4kXv4voOFO
