Joe Biden and his Democratic cohorts refer to the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) as the end-all-be-all in the fight against domestic violence and sexual assault.

As a woman and a sexual assault survivor, I can tell you that the VAWA does nothing to protect women.

 

The Democrats use the VAWA as a way to pontificate and act as though they’re doing what’s in the best interest of women when they’re not. If they cared about what happens to us, they wouldn’t need to deny our accusers of due process. They wouldn’t erode the Constitution as a way of “protecting” us.

Truth be told, the VAWA is a way for gun-grabbing Democrats to shove their gun control agenda down our throats. After all, if you oppose the VAWA, the rage mob instantly comes after you. How could anyone be in favor of violence against unsuspecting young girls and women?

But when you get into the weeds of the bill, you can’t help but roll your eyes and sigh.

The VAWA tackles the so-called “stalking loophole.” And no, you don’t have to be outside someone’s house or place of business to be considered a stalker. Send a mean message on social media that triggers another person and you can be deemed a stalker.

Here’s the kicker: the bill would apply retroactively to previous stalking offenses, including ones that were made years or even decades in the past. That also means their stalking offenses now make them prohibited possessors.

But the scariest part of the bill is the ex-parte orders, where someone can be denied their Second Amendment rights based on an accusation. There is no due process. There is no fact-finding. The accused is assumed to be truthful… and that’s dangerous.

How many times do people break up and get into fights?

How many times do women decide to be vindictive and spiteful as a way of getting back at their ex?

This is just one more way for someone to use the law – under the guise of “abuse” – to harm others.

Protecting women starts with smaller, more tangible items. It starts with the woke mob recognizing the inherent value women bring to the table.

It means calling women what we are… women. Not “menstruating people.” Not “birthing people.” But women. 

It means women’s sports stay solely for biological women. Not men who identify as women. Not men who are transitioning to women. But actual women.

Protecting women starts with recognizing our value and treating us as equals in society, not needing to be constantly shielded like children or treated like second-class citizens.

America has put women last and treated us as a small minority when we make up half the population. In our nation’s quest to be “all-inclusive,” women have been excluded.

It’s time to get back to the America when women were respected for both our intellect and ability to bring new life into the world.

At the end of the day, protecting women starts with addressing America’s culture crisis, not passing unconstitutional legislation.
