    You know why - because on this particular forum we have a good hefty handful. There have been at least 7 over the years that I can think of who were quite obnoxious about it to an extreme. They're all the same. They say the same things, they have the same silly reasoning and primitive ego-boosting concepts - and when you've said it about 100 times you've said it all.

    What they want is attention. They're like little children feeling deprived. They are all the same - we've engaged with them plenty. They're sexist, they have various opinions, and they voice them knowing and wanting a response - so they can continue with their opinions and retorts and spewing their blind crap endlessly to the beat of their own drum.

    Why should we cater to their attention needs and self serving desires? It's obvious they do it to gain some sense of popularity or what have you - they love being able to control others and piss people off from a distance.

    The douches and the dicks won't be changing their boisterous views after an argument with any of us - or a deep, heated, serious debate. Because we've done it all. We've done it enough to know that's exactly the case.

    They want the attention - attention denied. They want people to expend the effort - effort unexpended. They want to dominate the subject - domination denied. Their views mean *that little* to me. I won't kowtow and give them all that attention they crave - through the vise of the internet no less - they won't be guiding my day. They aren't worth the gum on my shoe.

    You're asking 'why not' and I'm saying 'why bother'
    Alright well I admit that I haven't been hanging out with you guys very long, so maybe it is just a tired old thing around here, and I'm totally barking up the wrong tree.

    But still... not one woman says anything to the guy? Not one? Come on!

    I guess I can't, so here's someone who can:
    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.

    ~snip~
    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.

    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.

    But how does an individual not owning a gun imply that they don't support gun rights?

    Oh my god. I'm trying to whip up a gender war? Seriously? By hoping and even expecting that maybe a woman or two might tell a guy he's wrong and that he doesn't speak for them when he's being all sexist and ****ty?

    Re: Women voting, bad idea?

    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.

    I don't think your penis prevents you from being able to make good points. Don't be sexist.

    Now can we get back to the OP topic of some nimrod publicly announcing that women should not be able to vote?

    They are both Christians.
    Yeah, but at least the difference between them is clear because they stand up to each other, vocally. They let it be known that the other doesn't speak for, or represent them.

    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.
    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?

    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.

    Not really breaking news, so I didn't put it there.

    What say you, should women be voting?
    My "thanks" to the Tea Party for elevating yet another flaming idijit to public office.
