Sage Marie Nigma’s Opinions Dressed Up As Facts
I was disturbed to see a young, impressionable family member repost terribly inaccurate assertions posted on Facebook by Sage Marie Nigma #SageMarieNigma.
Her rant is posted verbatim below, but I feel compelled to respond in the hope that my expose will help discourage other young women from perpetrating fake news. This was my response to my family member:
Sage Marie Nigma (#SageMarieNigma) is either a liar or insane, or just really, really stupid. There is a 4th option, she may just be ignorant to the facts, and relying on someone she trusts who gave her wrong info. But, based on her tone, I am leaning towards the original three on gut feel, but I can’t know for sure.I don’t know her, so I can’t work out which condition ails her. The post is replete with ridiculous untruths such as:
- Jail for wearing condoms,
- Jail for miscarriages,
- Jail for birth control… seriously?
As for the alleged 12-year old rape victim she referenced, no the rapist should not have parental rights, he should be castrated and jailed for a very long time, absent any better suggestions. “Sperm is a weapon of rape and is not transformed into the privilege of fatherhood, simply because the victim was ovulating,” was the perfect argument offered by the lawyer of one such victim.
But, rape should not be a justification for murdering a baby either. #sagemarienigma is moving goalposts, and not being honest or reasonable in her arguments.
But let’s be honest #sagemarienigma, do we want to talk about the exceptions, i.e incest or rape (tiny percentage), or discuss the normative situation where 99% of infanticides are committed by the mother, often with the approval of the father, who want the benefits of consensual sex, but without the responsibilities?
I don’t want to minimize the horror that incest or rape is. Notwithstanding, the baby is a person, and I will gladly adopt that child and not hold the sins of the rapist against the child. I will also walk my talk, and support the mother as best I can, and I know many others who will come along side her with compassion, mercy, and financial help. If she can just find it within herself to be angry at the criminal, but not let that anger cause her to, in turn, commit a crime herself.
If I was a woman I’d respond to #sagemarienigma with #SpeakForYourself, the majority of women are not “in an uproar” as she claims. Whereas, the silent majority approve of the decision to protect babies, it is the boisterous minority that is in an uproar. Her logical fallacy is “Proof by Verbosity” and “bandwagon fallacy”.
Sage is a victim of post modernism; when evil is called “good” loud enough and for long enough, we embrace it and heartily endorse it. History is replete with others who shared her views, but not one of those characters is viewed in a positive light, and yet today “choice” and eradication of burdensome humans is considered a virtue. I look to my beloved wife, who for some years was Mum to 32 burdensome special needs kids in Africa, who would have been aborted in the west. Giving them love, purpose and value, at considerable cost to her health and wealth. There isn’t an aids infected, crippled child in a grass roofed, mud hut in the African outback, who is not worth more than every star in the sky.
This is Sage Marie Nigma’s original post.
i’m not even going to sit here and calmly try to explain why the (majority of the) female population is in an uproar. if you genuinely don’t understand at this point, you’re flat out stupid.
there is no discussion to be had.
it’s not a debate.
there’s no more acting stupid or pretending you don’t understand why women are angry.
if you’re silent on this, you’re complicit.
there is no neutral.
there is no comfortable medium.
it’s all fun and games until it’s YOUR fundamental human rights that are being fucked with.
women’s rights are NOT optional.
bodily autonomy is NOT optional.
abortion is not the only thing being criminalized with these bills passing in alabama, ohio and georgia.
birth control? punishable by prison time.
miscarriages? punishable by prison time.
traveling to another state where it is not a felony to have an abortion, to have a safe abortion? punishable by prison time.
a 12 year old girl was raped, impregnated, and is now being FORCED to COPARENT with her attacker.
are you fucking kidding me?
how do people not see the price tag that old, white men have put on women? we are so insignificant that we are viewed as only being good for pregnancy. they believe we only take birth control to prevent pregnancy. they believe we can CONTROL miscarriages. they believe we are so useless and small that our rights aren’t as important as a man’s.
nothing is more violating and dehumanizing than being told what you can and can’t do with your own body.
so how about this.
men who wear condoms during sex will be sentenced 10 years minimum in prison with the possibility of the death penalty for conspiracy to commit murder for preventing semen from fertilizing an egg.
oh what’s that? you‘re outraged that you’re being punished for practicing safe sex?
how about mandatory vasectomies to prevent pregnancy and avoid abortions altogether, since a vasectomy can be reversed?
oh, that violates your human rights and bodily autonomy? you’re a grown man and can make your own choices when it comes to your body?
keep that same motherfucking energy.
how twisted and corrupt do you have to be — not even exclusively as a politician, but — as a HUMAN BEING, to prioritize an UNBORN, or in recent bills, UNFERTILIZED “life” over the lives of REAL, LIVING, BREATHING, WOMEN?
women’s rights who? human rights who? sorry, the united states government doesn’t know her.
the government would rather a TWELVE YEAR OLD CHILD carry her rapist’s spawn to term and GIVE BIRTH than allow her to have a safe abortion.
the government would rather a grown woman DIE carrying a parasitic pregnancy to term than allow her to have a safe abortion.
this is not about saving lives at all. this isn’t about safety. there’s no regard for women, their rights, or a fetus. this is about winning a political battle and retaining power over the oppressed. this is about possession. this is about patriarchy. this is about control.
the fact that anyone still believes this is a topic to argue over absolutely blows my fucking top back. you don’t like abortions? don’t have one. you don’t like birth control? don’t use it. but your personal opinion doesn’t give you authority over another person’s rights to their own body.
oh and another thing, if you are pro-life (which is really just pro-birth because you don’t care for the lives of the women dying, or the life of the 12 year old rape victim, or the hundreds of thousands of children in the foster care system, or the lives of the people being shot down in schools and clubs and concerts), you are NOT a savior. you are NOT a “voice for the unborn”. you are as ignorant as it gets, fuck off with your holier-than-thou shit. nobody cares. you’re not impressing anyone. especially not me.
all in all, ladies: speak the fuck up. stop allowing your fear of coming off as an angry, irrational woman stop you from vocalizing your stance. and if you’re a man and you’re not fighting in this battle alongside the women in your life, get your shit together. your mama raised you better than that.
these laws are a violation of our constitutional rights and they’re dangerous. women’s rights are human rights.
educate yourself. stand for women.
