Bindi Irwin can’t be blamed for making stupid comments. She is, after all, only 15.
And because she is an eco-evangelist, it’s no surprise that she is running with the tired, worn-out lines of imminent planetary doom caused by overpopulation. You’d expect nothing less from her.
You see, Bindi believes that the birds and the bees are more important than human beings.
She also thinks that we should control the birds and the bees, so to speak, by implanting contraceptives in 11 year old girls from Third World countries.
In case you didn’t know, 11 year old girls are still in primary school.
I’m not sure how Bindi thinks impregnating school children with long-term contraceptives and then teaching them that a sexual free-for-all is their right in life is going to help anything.
Especially if she is of the view that Third World school girls are already the play thing of males. Her plan will just objectify them further.
The problem with Bindi and her thinking is that on one hand she thinks sex should be for grown ups who are able to take responsibility for their actions. Hence her taking this seemingly moral position to protect children.
But on the other hand, she wants to remove all responsibility for sex altogether. Hence her support for contraceptives and the immorality that goes with them.
And if you promote immorality at the same time as you promote morality, you end up with all sorts of disordered thinking and useless ideas.
If Bindi really wanted to solve the population problems this world is facing she would be arguing the case for more children. Because the current situation is unsustainable.
Just look at Detroit. It is a scary and brutal glimpse into the future.
And if Bindi really wanted to help Third World school girls, she would advocate something very different than contraceptives for them.
She would advocate societal sexual responsibility.
You know, the old fashioned type where men and women dated only after they were in a position to marry. And where the birds and the bees were only called upon after wedding bells chimed. And where sexual misconduct, like adultery, or prostitution, or homosexuality, or pornography was frowned upon as a scandal.
I know this is a bit hard to comprehend for those who have been brought up on the lie that sexual freedom has made life better. It hasn’t.
Just ask any childless feminist in their fourth relationship whether they’re happy.
And when her mouth finishes saying yes, look into her eyes and you will see a big no. They can lie out loud but the truth is written in their faces.
The fact is that women want to marry a man who will look after them, cherish them and care for them. And guess what? There is nothing wrong with that at all.
Because men want to marry a woman who they can love, cherish and adore.
But when you start acting with the sexual maturity of our age, everything is overturned.
Sex is no longer about love and, thanks to the pill, women are no longer cherished.
They have procured the freedom to used and discarded by men who have been allowed to become perpetual adolescents.
I mean, think about it. Fifteen year old boys are sex-crazy. The pill has made their teenage fantasies come true. So men no longer grow up.
True love is really nothing more than complete sacrifice of one’s self. Contraception is born of selfishness. Bindi Irwin would do well to think about that.
And also, next time she wants to release a video that moralises about poverty and a lack of resources and the shocking fact that 150 children are born around the world every minute, she might like to leave off the bit about donations for the animal hospital at Australia Zoo.
It just seems a little tacky.
