I was against a women’s issues debate in the Canadian federal election because it tends to be that people drastically opposed to what I believe pretend to represent me, and I’m just supposed to stand there, smiling, nodding, and saying things like, “I do love little kittens.” So it’s a relief that there won’t be one. Huzzah. There is of course the additional hypocrisy that the group claiming to want a debate doesn’t actually want to debate. On abortion, their talking point has consistently been that abortion is a right not up for debate. So when pro-lifers ask them to defend their views publicly, they say no.
