Hakuo Yanagisawa, former finance minister, now Borg King
I just had to add this guy to my collection. I allude, of course, to Japan’s health minister, pronouncing on the crisis of falling birth rates:
“Because the number of birth-giving machines and devices is fixed, all we can ask for is for them to do their best per head,” he said.
He added: “Although it may not be so appropriate to call them machines.”
Obviously the world’s parliaments are crammed to the rafters with zombie politicians who sit around muttering this kind of misogyny-as-public-policy crap into each other’s hairy ears all day long. What’s unusual is when one of them escapes the protective custody of his wranglers long enough to provide the unsuspecting citizenry an unguarded glimpse of the actual dominant male agenda. Which we now see is a scheme to assimilate all female devices into the Japanese Womb-Borg.
You know, I’ve pretty much had it up to here with state-sponsored claims on private internal organs. No one will ever know a moment’s peace until uteruses become politically irrelevant.
