Alcohol-chugging liberal women may want to rethink their love affair with the World Health Organization …

This week the discredited organization released a draft of its Global Alcohol Action Plan 2022-2030. Contained within the draft is a passage that urges countries to invest in preventing “women of child-bearing age” from consuming alcohol.

“It is necessary to raise awareness among decision-makers and the general public about the risks and harms associated with alcohol consumption,” the passage begins.

“Appropriate attention should be given to prevention of the initiation of drinking among children and adolescents, prevention of drinking among pregnant women and women of childbearing age, and protection of people from pressures to drink, especially in societies with high levels of alcohol consumption where heavy drinkers are encouraged to drink even more,” it adds.

The proposal can be seen below or accessed here.

The passage provoked widespread backlash.

In a statement, the Portman Group, a trade group of alcohol beverage producers, slammed the proposal as “sexist and paternalist” and accused the WHO of trying to “scaremonger.”

Look:

A couple of prominent women, from feminist activists to university professors and “journalists,” concurred, with some asking why men weren’t also being targeted.

Look:

Regular women were also annoyed.

Look:

What’s not clear is the WHO’s meaning of “prevention.” Some claimed this translates to outright bans on “women of childbearing age” consuming alcohol. Others disagreed and argued that the WHO’s recommendation was being taken out of context.

Look:

A Pew Research Center poll conducted last fall found that “in nearly every country polled, women are more likely than men to say the WHO has done a good job dealing with the [coronavirus] outbreak.” In the United States, 57 percent of women felt that way.

Another Pew Research Center poll conducted around that same time found that 62 percent of Democrats “say the organization has done at least a good job in handling the pandemic.”

These findings suggest that liberal women are the discredited organization’s biggest fans, which is ironic since the WHO is now targeting their alcohol-drinking habits.

It’s even more ironic once you factor in a 2014 study from the Journal of Wine Economics that found that “[t]he more liberal you are, the more you drink,” as reported at the time by The Oregonian.

By supporting the WHO, it appears liberal women have basically been screwing themselves …
