In which Richard Dawkins decided to mansplain abortion.
He keeps using the word 'human' when he means 'person', and he keeps using the word 'consequentialist' but doesn't seem to know what it means.
"The purpose of the holiday is to thank and praise the Christian God, continuing Christian feels of subservience and inferiority."2. The notion of art class is "insane":
"When I took art classes at university, I railed against being expected to be creative on Tuesdays and Thursdays from one to four. It's insane no matter the circumstance or purpose."3. Wishing rpeate to have a happy religious holiday (e.g. Thanksgiving) is thoughtless:
"When someone thoughtlessly assumes I participate in any religious holiday, I feel ire at the religion that is at that moment touching upon my life against my will. 'Have a good Thanksgiving,' for example."
"Okay, sure, your boss grabbed your ass. Why can't you just take it as a compliment?"It's all very instructive. I had no idea how offensive I was potentially being.
"Look, I get it, slavery is wrong--but do you really have to get so uppity about it?"
"People may and eventually will talk to you in an elevator (or any other tight space) at any AM/PM - deal with it. It's normal human (of any sex, yes, women do it too) behavior. Nothing threatening about it. Unless it's clearly threatening. NO, I'm not telling you when you are allowed to feel threatened, I'm telling you that even if you feel threatened - that doesn't mean that you are really under any threat. The problem is purely YOURS and it is psychological. Resolve it. ASAP. Please.Unfortunately, people are unaware that arguing with ag666 is futile, so we end up with a bunch of disturbing and entirely unwanted commentary from atheism's token psychopath. He even tells a survivor who is honestly trying to help (with a link) that they are exhibiting paranoia "at its finest" and more therapy and common sense are the answer.
I understand rape/assault victims (they should resolve it too - so they can live normally in society of people who can talk), but the rest of you? Afraid of statistics? Really? (Or maybe your are all rape victims? I don't know) Do you know that the same statistics shows that it is MORE LIKELY that you will be raped by someone you KNOW at your or his HOME. So it is not very reasonable to be afraid of strangers. Statistically. Same goes for rapes in elevators - low risk location. Statistically. Same goes for drunks - if the stranger is drunk then it is LESS likely that he will rape you than if he was not (but if you are both drunk - beware!). Statistically. Consistency? It's clear that your fear is irrational. Phobia. No male privilege involved. Though I understand that it is easier to involve it than to accept the truth."
"You just do not know how men function. Polite stopping signals are often seen as a challenge (she didn't tell me to fuck off, there's a chance). Men like challenges. Take note. There's nothing men can do about it."And...
"Lol. Women often pretend they are not interested when in fact they are (even if you personally don't). That's one of the strategies to interest a man they like. I could also go with a classic "Men love to chase women." But you will of course assume i'm a stalker and I love to chase my scared victims before I rape them. Be my guest.Do you want to vomit yet? Because I do! Let's stop talking about ag666! Especially since we're no where near done yet and this post is already fuckall long!
I guess it's pointless to mention that men see ANY woman (relatives excluded, well in most states) they find "interesting" as a potential sexual partner. Potential.
I'm off to rape another uninterested one.
"This is strange, because I don't have a problem with either one of them. If she's uncomfortable and put off by something that happened, she has the right to feel that way. And if she feels comfortable enough to share it on her blog which allows comments, she is opening it up to other people's opinions. So Dawkins has every right to give his. I didn't find him rude, blunt or sarcastic - just offering a different point of view."There's so much fail going on in all of these posts that it's honestly hard to post all of it, but here's another gem, this time from pretend_mulling:
"And just how is it victim-blaming to ask what the other 75% are doing that is keeping them from being raped? If we knew, we could take the number down from 1 in 4 to zero in four. "Educating, preventing, and protecting" is now victim-blaming? Or is it just that everyone who buys into rape culture is secretly rooting for the rapists, because having them to keep up the 1 in 4 statistic keeps you from having to actually do anything about it? If that's the ugly truth, I'm only too happy to expose it. I, for one, actually WANT the number of rapes to go down to zero, and if that means "victim-blaming" by educating, preventing, and protecting, then that's what it means.Okay then.
Cyranothe2nd, I am DONE with your femmsplaining. I'm done with your cop-outs and your patronization. Done. I'm not replying to another one of your mindless, bullshit-statistic-quoting posts. Good day to you."
