Re this latest "feminist" offerring: Can it really be that no one else finds
it demented?  Jaszewski?

  Marxism is a humanism, compassing, that is to say, an old (the LTV is a
secularization
of Luther) and very conservative normative tradition.  Cox points out
the  radical individualist, character of the language of "choice"; also very
apparent is the
alienation/reification of one's biology, and a proprietary sense of one's
relationship to it, all
bourgeois formulations.  It is very far from Marxism...and very much in the
moral context
of bourgeois post-modern nihilism.  It is the brave-new-world, bourgeois
technocracy,
which promises us many wonders of  bio-engineering...brrrrrr.
     Against this nihilism, Marxism posits the "maker" of value, and the
arch-tenet
of the Humanist community has to be the sacrality of life.  Obviously, abortion
contradicts this in an absolute fashion,...supporting it cuts the ground from
under us.
