I Am Woman, See the Gore, In Numbers Too Big to Ignore

I've always found it ironic that "I Am Woman," Helen Reddy's feminist anthem (Reddy once thanked God "because She makes everything possible"), contains the lyrics "I'm still an embryo / with a long, long way to go." Because of course if you're still an embryo, you can be exterminated on a whim. It's feminist dogma.

Today, 100 million missing girls later, feminism's unintended-consequences dial has officially been cranked up to 11.
