Hard-left feminists are sometimes called femi-nazis, and a glance at a recent Reddit discussion about aborting baby boys offers a little insight into why critics choose to go with the term.
The discussion, which featured women openly talking about aborting unborn babies for the sole reason that they were boys, was shared on Twitter by Obianuju Ekeocha.
Ekeocha is from Nigeria and is pro-life. The biomedical scientist lives and works in the United Kingdom, and often tweets about the evils of abortion.
“This woman in a Reddit feminist community is freaking out bcos she doesn’t want to conceive a baby boy,” Ekeocha tweeted, including a snippet of the conversation. “It became a heated discussion and some of the replies were so disturbing and revealing of a growing trend among some young white feminists. This is a type of radicalization.”

Some of the quotes highlighted are enough to curl your hair… if you’re a decent human being.
“If I got pregnant and found out it was a boy, I’d abort that mf so quick lol,” a person wrote — note the joy expressed in making such a declaration.
But enough with hypotheticals, as one woman who proudly referred to herself as an “unapologetic radfem,” said she did just that, claiming she could not love a son in the way she could a daughter.
“I have aborted the baby once I found it was a boy,” the woman wrote. “I’m a staunch and unapologetic radfem. I have never regretted my decision. What I know for sure is had I kept it I wouldn’t have loved it like I’d love a daughter.”
Another cited her hatred for “men and masculinity,” which would suggest she may rely on artificial insemination to get pregnant.
She stated: “I don’t know how to raise a boy when I genuinely hate modern men and masculinity.”
If there was a theme to the reactions to the story it would start with “heartbroken.”
Here’s a quick sampling of responses from Twitter:
Wow! Those women seriously need never become mothers. At all.
The men in their lives I’m not even sure could be beta males.
To hate a baby is wrong, but to hate because of his gender is insane.
The hate they will instill in their daughters will become generational.

I am a single Mom to a wonderful Son.
He has been raised to have respect for all good people.
Killing and innocent boy in the womb is evil.
Plain and simple.
Stop the patriarchy by killing unborn males ??
Talk about absolute power corrupting absolutely.

Did they just assume their child’s gender?

Wow..My heart literally broke reading this. Hard to believe that a person can in one breath proclaim love for one child & disdain for another based on gender. God help us all because I hate to think what values these people are instilling the children they do ‘choose’ to raise?

Heartbreaking! ?? They have completely forgotten the dignity of human life!

I don’t understand how these women that hate men get pregnant. If they think all men are evil, why are they having sex with them?
