The Second Civil War

We have multiple states in open rebellion against federal policy. They are led by Texas and Florida, which is turning into a theocratic fascist state under the leadership of religious fanatic and retired torturer Ronald Dion DeSantis. There is a hostile Supreme Court, also dominated by the theocrats. There is talk of secession. This is not dissimilar to the situation which Lincoln faced, before the first Civil War broke out. Only–what are the seceding states protecting? Racism, to be sure, but we don’t hear open talk of that. We do hear open talk of the evils of sexual minorities, but there are not that many of them and they are not useful as wealth. It is not like the old South, where much of the wealth of the slave states was bound up in slaves. So, what are the secessionist states fighting to protect?

Masculine supremacy, especially white masculine supremacy. Women forced to work. Women forced to bear children. Women forced to accept rape and harassment.

The Second Civil War is a War on Women.

That pretty much sums it up but it can be expanded to war on whoever isn't "us".
