women voting is a terrible idea
women voting is fine with me
If you are a member of a non-gun owning society, then this means you choose force over reason. Having removed the people's ability to resist you, they have no choice but to comply with your policies.The gun is civilization
Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that's it.
In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.
Being part of a gun-owning society means you've chosen to deal with people through reason, not force. Far fewer legislative actions are even necessary when people can communicate among themselves and come to a compromise on their own. Generally, the government should only be turned to after we fail.

I find the existence of this poll to be offensive. Why give ignorant fools a stage to speak on? Of course women voting is not a bad idea and only an idiot would argue it is. The question is offensive, and I'm not going to participate in this thread because this topic is not deserving of discussion.
Now can we get back to the OP topic of some nimrod publicly announcing that women should not be able to vote?
So you think that homophobia would be as diminished as it is today if other straight people wouldn't have spoken out in droves, and encouraged others to do so as well? You think it would have made just as much impact if straight people had kept quiet, and it had been only gay people telling homophobes that they're wrong?I am also not in the third grade, which means that I don't feel it necessary to form a dog pile in order to make a point. A point made is a point made. If you need "back up" to speak your mind, then you're looking at this wrong.
I had nothing to add to your posts. They were perfectly succinct. So I liked them and moved on to the thread of conversation I was already engaged in. I don't feel obligated to repeat what you've already said because I have a vagina, as though it means something different when the speaker has a penis. It doesn't. It means the same thing.
If someone likes your post and then doesn't make one of their own, that means you've covered the bases and they have nothing to add. Stop seeing feminazi boogie women where they don't exist.
Do you think that it wasn't necessary for men to speak out against sexism in the fight for womens rights? Do you think women would have made the same progress if it had been only women addressing the sexism against them?
I mean, I realize that sexism against men is a tiny problem by comparison. Don't get me wrong. But to say that it doesn't matter if women speak out against it is just wrong. This guy thinks he speaks on your behalf. Tell him he doesn't! Again, it's not gonna mean much coming from me.
Anyway, I'll stop now.
