Advocating for Women

1978 was a turning point in my life, and today’s official statement from the U.S. Supreme Court causes me to remember that particular year.

Early nurturing from my mother, Thelma Englert Loika, led to opportunities to experience women. I discovered they were a source of security, inspired by loyalty and devotion. Women can be incredibly alluring, will cater to curiosity, nod constantly up-and-down during polite conversation and taste incredibly interesting.

All those tactile sensations were in play when a certain woman, Sarah, flashed herself in front of me. I wholeheartedly gave in, even while Sarah was introducing her parents into our life of mutually satisfying physical pleasures. Sarah was 38; I was 35.

Sarah’s parents suspected our emissions would create an offspring, and those Egyptian Jews were right.

I volunteered for us to get married, becoming betrothed during January 1978 in a tourist-trendy ceremony in the justice of the peace’s wedding chapel/office in the celebrity-rich town of Golden Beach, Florida. The only music I remember came from a background FM radio station, with the whole event taking half an hour.

After saying goodbyes to our respective families, Sarah and I couldn’t wait to undress and fuck like rabbits.

Again and again.

Once early March rolled around, after I refused mother-in-law Edith’s demand to end my own mother’s influence, the happiness of welcoming my own child into the world no longer excited my in-laws.

While I sat on the front stoop of our Miami Shores garden-adorned apartment building, trying to keep a frosty bottle of champagne cool, Edith took Sarah to the ghetto side of town for an illegal abortion. As I walked resignedly back to our apartment and sat upon the bargain-basement couch, my phone rang 10 minutes later.

“It’s Edith,” she said. With just a few words, Edith explained all in just a few words. “Sarah has undergone an abortion. You need to look after her. We’ll be home in about 10 minutes.” Then she hung up.

What? What the fuck? How did this happen? Sarah couldn’t talk it over with me?

After the two of them appeared, I walked around in a fog. Sarah told me nothing but went to bed. Two days later, I filed for divorce.

I suppose people would wonder why I support women’s rights then. Well, I always have. And why would I want to use my personal experience to impose more impediments to the lives of women?

No way. I received too much pleasure from women, especially considering the inconveniences they experience, to control their reproductive rights. I love women!

While I was awaiting the October court date, a front-page story in the Miami Herald’s Aug. 11, 1978 living-today section carried my photo, touting my Miami Jaycee civic reputation as a “dissident” and “suffragist”.

The wonderment brought about by surprise mass publicity caused me to pen a paean:

MEN WHO LOVE WOMEN SUPPORT WOMEN’S RIGHTS.

Now it’s June 24, 2022, and the U.S. Supreme Court just declared a mockery of the New World Order. Once again, women’s voices are being heard about freedom and America.

Being a man, and thereby logically inferior, I offer my contribution to this crucial time. American women need to “remind” men that Men who love women support women’s rights.

  1. I don’t understand. You were angry because she exercised her right to the point of divorcing her, but support her exercising her right. Hmmm

    1. My anger was directed toward my wife; I married her promptly because she was pregnant, and our wedding vows anticipated her giving birth. Sarah told me her mother was responsible for causing her to have the abortion; however, I married Sarah, not her mother. Our marriage had nothing to do with denying women the fundamental right to manage their own healthcare.

  2. An interesting commentary on a sad and perplexing situation where the husband has no rights over the life and death of his unborn child. The affront came from womanly betrayals of their family “loyalties” which lead to the loss of a child, presumably, a child Mason wanted?

  3. I do not understand how any man who has a mother, sister, daughter and/or any female relative would support The reversal of Roe Vs Wade. The Man who would do such a thing would have to have the mentality of a barbarian.

    1. Does anyone understand what the Supreme Court did? They did not do away with abortion. They gave the right to decide back to the states instead of thr federal government, which never had the power, ala the 10th amendment. It actually gives the power to decide closer to the individual than the federal government. If you don’t like it, repeal the 10th amendment.

      1. Your response to Jesse Goodrich conveniently ignores a Republican Congressional priority: to ban abortions nationwide – in every state. That’s why the upcoming election will see NO REPUBLICANS on my completed ballot. Don’t paint this Supreme Court decision as benign; it’s not. “Fool me once; shame on you. Fool me twice; shame on me.”
