This mostly for those of who are gamers – MMO and tabletop – and/or fans of certain sorts of genre fiction, but only mostly. Writings of Half-Angels go back to approximately 1800BC, specific references to Half-Demons to the mid-19th century, and Half-Elves and Half-Orcs to the 1930s. And, only the last two are specifically fiction. 😉
We all know that the Feminists have strongly held and extremely narrow view, especially when it comes to men. What may, in my opinion, be more important and pernicious, however, is the Feminists’ view of other women.
The Feminists’ Viewpoint
Yes, how the current crop of Feminists see women who enjoy sex with men and dress and comport them selves in a manner that signals that preference as bimbos – and that’s, by and large, the nicest thing they see normal, non-hateful, non-perverted, heterosexual women as.
There’s a whole lot of what we’re forced to call “people” piling on Donald Trump and blaming him for the non-Whites and Liberals who’ve repeatedly turned to violence against him and his supporters. Essentially, they say he was asking for it.
There’s politicians doing it:
The ugly, divisive rhetoric we are hearing from Donald Trump and the encouragement of violence and aggression is wrong, and it’s dangerous. If you play with matches, you’re going to start a fire you can’t control.
That’s not leadership. That’s political arson.
I would appeal to for every candidate is decency and civility, that we can disagree and disagree forcefully while still respecting each other and not engaging in insults and vulgarity and not encouraging violence.
— Ted Cruz
You wonder if weâ€™re headed in a different direction today where weâ€™re no longer capable of having differences of opinion but in fact now protests become a license to take up violence and take on your opponents physically. This is what happens when a leading presidential candidate goes around feeding into a narrative of bitterness and anger and frustration.
And then there’s the Lamestream Media.
Anybody who tells you that there is no connection between the behavior of the mob at these events and the behavior of the man at the podium leading the mob at these events is not actually watching he’s been saying from the podium. What he has been saying, and the way he has been egging it on, it has been escalating
[sic] … a political campaign whose security has been so stifling as to draw angry comparisons to fascist regimes would plan a key rally for Trump in the middle of a racially diverse urban campus.
Someone care to tell me who, with the exceptions that Mr. Trump is a White and a man, how this is any different from blaming a woman who was drunk or dressed “provocatively” for her own rape? Asking for it is asking for it, after all.
Of course, this question has to be put to the Liberals and Progressives. The non-Whites in these times have a different definition of rape and their behavior vis-a-vis Mr. Trump adheres to that logic.
As most people are now aware, ObamaCare is a failure, in no small part because very few people want it. Hence, it’s not at all surprising that there;s now some “creative” marketing taking place to get people, especially young, healthy people who normally don’t have or want significant health insurance to sign up.
Colorado in particular is hoping that its exchanges could work in a niche market – sluts.
Colorado Markets ObamaCare To Sluts
The demeaning and offensive ads are part of a marketing campaign from Colorado Consumer Health Initiative and ProgressNow Colorado Education that strongly implies that young Coloradan women would only be interested in Colorado’s government-run health care exchange if they were able to get coverage for birth control pills in order to have casual sex with random men without the fear of an unplanned pregnancy.
There are other ads in this marketing campaign and they’re all aimed at the lowest and most venal denominators – mostly promiscuity and drunken debauchery.
Then again, ObamaCare is all about pandering to- and subsidizing the lowest common denominator so these ads, sexist and demeaning as they are, make a certain amount sense. 😉
On Tuesday, April 23, 2013 University of Arizona (UA) student Dean Saxton aka Brother Dean Samuel royally pissed off a lot of fellow students when he counter-protested their well-publicized Take Back The Night event, carrying a placard that read, “You Deserve Rape.”
If You’re Asking For It, You Deserve To Get It
Essentially, the UA junior who is studying civics and religious studies believes that if women dress and act “immodestly” they’re asking to be sexually assaulted.
Saxton, a junior studying classics and religious studies, said his sermon was meant to convey that â€œif you dress like a whore, act like a whore, youâ€™re probably going to get raped.â€
â€œI think that girls that dress and act like it,â€ Saxton said, â€œthey should realize that they do have partial responsibility, because I believe that theyâ€™re pretty much asking for it.â€
UA’s Dean of Students Office received stacks of written complaints, emails and multiple phone calls demanding official reprisals against Saxton. Somewhat shockingly, the refused to do anything against the controversial student preacher under the grounds of his being protected speech.
Why Saxton Is Right
Despite the outrage of many, Saxton is right in his belief that women who dress in an overly sexualized manner, those who overtly and publicly act in a commensurate manner, and/or those who just fail to display certain basic forms of common sense are setting themselves up to be sexually assaulted. As such, they must and do share some of the responsibility for such an attack happening to them in particular.
Like it or not, when women dress or act in such a manner as to be labeled “slutty” or “whorish” those women have lowered their value in the eyes of many and dehumanized themselves in the eyes of some. They’ve also turned themselves into “soft targets” which will likely cause sexual predators to choose them as victims over other women.
If women are truly to be considered the equals of men then they must be held to the same standards of personal responsibility as their male counterparts. Since the many variations of, “He was asking for it,” don’t bring outrage when some guy does something untoward and/or stupid and gets beat down, the same standard must be applied by society to women as well.
Why Saxton Is Wrong
Firstly and most importantly, no woman deserves to be raped because of how she dresses or because she acts in a manner that would by normative values indicate that she was promiscuous. Like it or not, statements to the effect that these women deserve to be sexually assaulted de facto excuse the rapist(s) in question.
What is worse it that this idea was long ago co-opted by defense attorneys and used in defense of their rapist clients.Â These lawyers have not only enjoyed a certain amount of success by attacking the moral character of rape victims, they’ve fostered a court environment that makes women almost as afraid of reporting rape as being raped.
To put it bluntly, while a woman ethically and practically must bear some measure of responsibility for the negative consequences of her choices, such arguments have no place in a court of law.
