Feminists Say It's 'Racist And Sexist' for Italians to Have Italian Babies

According to feminists, asking Italian women to have babies with Italian men to reverse their nation's low birthrate is "racist" and "sexist."

From USA Today:
ROME — Italy launched a program Thursday aimed at reversing one of the world’s lowest birthrates, but the first “Fertility Day” produced a backlash with charges of sexism, racism and comparisons to wartime dictator Benito Mussolini.

The Ministry of Health campaign focuses on measures to combat sterility, but causing the most uproar was the part encouraging women to think about having children earlier in life.

One ad, for example, showed a smug pregnant woman holding an hourglass with a tagline that reads, “Beauty doesn’t have an age. Fertility does.” Another showed the outline of a long-beaked bird reading, “Hurry up! Don’t wait for the stork.”
Asking women to have babies when it's biologically most prudent to do so?

Wow. Just wow.

In 2016?

“It’s incredibly condescending to think that Italian women don’t understand how their biological clock works,” said Rebecca Winke, 45, a Chicago native operating a bed and breakfast in the central Italian town of Assisi. “What women here need is the same opportunities men have in the workforce, affordable child care and a generation of Italian men who can do their fair share at home.”
Can you believe the arrogance of this broad?

Moving to another country and then attacking their government for encouraging their citizens to reproduce?

Hey Rebecca Winke, why don't you get the hell out of their country if you don't like it?

Go back to the hellhole that is Chicago -- which you seem to have ditched since it's been destroyed by liberal lunatics like yourself.

Here's another quote from Winke they put at the end of the article:
...“It’s shameful that a health minister who never graduated from college is telling intelligent women with college degrees who are forced to work in pizzerias because there are no other opportunities that they are the problem with the system,” Winke said.
Who is this crazy woman? Get the hell out of their country! Also, I take it back, we don't want you here in America either. I demand you go live with the refugees in Calais where they're in desperate need of your "services," if you don't go, then you're a racist.
Alessandra Fortuna, 23, a Rome waitress, agreed: “The only thing this sloppy campaign shows is that the Ministry of Health has no idea about the challenges regular women face.”

The Italian newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano wondered tongue-in-cheek if a “bachelor tax” was in the works, and several Italian media said the “Fertility Day” campaign smacked of Mussolini’s own policies that said women had a “national duty” to produce many offspring.

Last year was the fifth consecutive year that the average childbearing age rose in Italy, reaching 31.6 years, one of the highest in Europe. The average of 1.35 live births per woman is the lowest ever recorded in Italy and well below the average of around 2.1 needed for a population to remain stable.
Here's the ad they called "racist," which was produced by female Italian Health Minister Beatrice Lorenzin.

The top is labeled "good companions" while the bottom drug users are labeled "bad companions."

It's "racist" because there's a black guy in the bottom stock photo.

In other words, encouraging Italian people to have Italian babies in Italy is racist.

Here's a chart showing the decline of birthrates in Italy, Germany and the United States:

That number needs to be at least 2.1 just to break even.

"It's shameful the government would try to tell Italians to reproduce, we women have careers now and jobs and stock portfolios," the feminists say.

Yeah... and next Italians go extinct, great job.

Italy needs to continue with this program and other European nations need to take it up as well.

Also, Rebecca Winke needs to be deported immediately.
