You never minimalized rape nor called for it to be decriminalized.
I hate when people misrepresent what I said. It's a tool people use to put you on the defensive while not answering your specific points.
You have "anger" issues.
Funny, I failed to see that.
I'm pretty sure Pookie is a female. You have threatened her with your tone of typing. Watch-out!
To the Editor:
Former DA Nifong was quick to play the race card in the Duke Lacrosse fiasco, but race wasn't the only thing that made this whole tragedy possible. What else was?
We've got agencies such as rape crisis centers who knowingly and deliberately push debunked statistics such as "1 in 4 women are raped" and employees of domestic violence agencies pushing fraudulent Duluth Model statistics such as the familiar "every 9 seconds..." nonsense. We've got taxdollars funding these groups through VAWA STOP grants. (Follow the money trail, anyone?) We've got journalists unwilling to question the statistics and agendas of the very groups receiving those public monies. And we've got spineless politicians who are unwilling to stand up to extreme feminist special interests out of fear of being painted "anti-woman".
You are one false accusation away from being imprisoned. Doubt me? I'm sure those three Duke Lacrosse players never imagined they would be accused of rape. Had they not had the financial means of hiring competent lawyers, they might be rotting away in prison right now. If you think for one minute that the rape crisis centers and domestic violence shelters are actually concerned with justice, then I would kindly suggest you wake up and smell the coffee. It's not black and white that made this whole case possible, it was green. It's the VAWA monies flowing into their coffers that created this whole "men = evil" environment.
I used to contribute to a local rape crisis center through United Way contributions. I personally would like a refund.
Another little snippet.
When AZT was first invented - they had no use for it (apart from it's toxicity) so they started giving it away in large quantities to research labs to find a use for it. When it was finally applied to the treatment of AIDS, the cost/value of a 200ml bottle of AZT went up to $250,000!
That has gotta tell you something about the motivations behind the pharma industry.
This is exactly what libertarians do. As long as they define their force, as retaliation or, defense, against the force from others, even if that force is not against their physical person, but against their property, their violence (which by the way, is usually through the state apparatus) is a-okay.
I WAS pointing out that violence is a tool used by all societies regardless of the economic systems being practiced.
Quote from: "napnip"In fact, pacifism and socialism are polar opposites. Socialism requires the use of force to redistribute wealth and nationalize industry. If John Doe refused to let his wealth be redistrubuted or his company taken over, the true pacifistic socialist would be powerless to do anything about it.
As a pacifist allow me to posit that the use of force is one of the cornerstones of our civilisation. We use the threat of state sanctioned violence, force or deprivation of liberty to control the behaviour of individuals. The types of economic sytems we choose to apply do not change this thing.
He's being so mean," she said at a tearful press conference, after losing a landmark legal battle to be allowed to use her frozen embryos from an in vitro fertilisation program.
GERMAINE Greer wants Australian women to be more outspoken, reject bad female role models, take control of their future and demonstrate modern feminism through pacifism, socialism and environmentalism.
