So I logged into my Facebook today to find that one friends “liked” the above photo.  My issue with the statement made in the image is this:  If you MUST carry a firearm to feel safe due to your gender, then you have accepted the culture of violence towards women as being normal.  Feminism works toward undoing the mentality that women should have to travel in groups, or with some form of defensive item in order feel safe.
That’s the short version of my personal opinion.  Feel free to weigh in on the topic if you like.

>culture of violence
>dont travel in groups to keep people who might hurt you away
>dont carry items such as guns to fucking protect yourself
>dont carry around a defensive item in order to feel safe/again, protect yourself from being harmed
What a fantastic message that feminism is sending. “Don’t worry, feminism is working to keep criminals from not being criminals even though they probably know what they’re doing is fucking wrong; in the meantime, we’re also going to undo the mentality that keeps you safe from said criminals.”
fucking lol

I never said NOT to defend yourself if you have to.  The problem stems from the mentality that people have to jump through additional hoops in order to keep themselves protected.  In a perfect world, we wouldn’t have crimes of any kind, but something that we can strive toward is to stop blaming victims for what they were wearing or what time of day they were out.

Really? Because you said that feminism “works toward undoing the mentality that women should have to travel in groups, or with some form of defensive item in order feel safe”. That mentality - which can be described as common sense, intelligence, and/or “How to Defend Myself”  - you’re trying to “undo” lower the chances of being attacked both for men and women. People should always be encouraged to have something to defend themselves in the event that someone attacks them. I don’t understand why this mentality is so shockingly horrible to you people.  Instead of promoting the idea to defend yourself using any means necessary, you in turn complain about people who are trying to keep themselves safe, which is fucking hilarious to me. 
Then you turn the conversation to fucking victim blaming, which has nothing to do with the photo, your original statement, or mine. This “mentality” to have something to defend yourself and taking measures so that your risks of being attacked or decreased will actually help victims and keep others from becoming victims. 
You thought this out very well.

And to the people who cannot afford/are not comfortable to resorting to such methods to defend themselves in cases of violence acted on them the judicial system has frequently hung victims out to dry.  If you can keep yourself safe, go for it.  If you can’t, should that be a reason for people to turn a blind eye to what’s happened to you?
A firearm carried by the right person, protects that person, and if they chose to use it in a situation that calls for it, the people in the direct vicinity as well.  I can agree with that entirely this.
My opinion differs in that I believe the legal system needs revision in how it treats men and women in cases of assault, rape, and other forms of violence that occur to people of both genders and that feminism is an outlet that will lead to that change.

Oh my God, you’re turning this away from the main point and into a victim blaming shpeel to cover for the ridiculous statement that you made. 
No one is talking about blaming a victim. That had nothing to do with my arguments from before - at all. They didn’t even have anything to do with your original commentary. Now, you’re saying that feminism will lead to this change (it’s actually just made it worse for men, and there are many posts on tumblr showing how many feminists get beyond pissed off at men who claim they’ve been raped) instead of the original statement, which was how you wanted to undo the  mentality that protecting yourself = good. 
Whatever man. You want to turn this into something that had nothing to do with your first statement, and I’m not playing this game lol

Love this thread. Goes to show that once a person has drunk the leftist, pseudo-progressive/feminist kool-aid, there is absolutely no room for logical thought or argument. Absolutely none. They’ll contradict themselves dozens of times—so much so that it is hard to even organize your thoughts enough to pick what to expose first—and then resort to NOTHING but talking points and recycled narratives.

Who gets to discuss America’s racial issues on Fox News: Five white people.

The real question is, who exploits race and sexuality and tribalism and children for Political gain and division of the population? Ah yes, both your Liberal “Progressives” AND your Neo-Conservatives.
You assholes making anti-GOP posts are more laughable than the GOP itself.

I need feminism because “Who hired a stripper” shouldn’t be the first thing said to me when I walk into a welding job.

women in trades are treated like such fucking shit. 

NO I’M STILL STUCK ON THIS WHY WOULD ANYONE SAY THIS TO A WOMAN HOLDING A BLOWTORCH

Sorry but that’s funny.

And if I show up to a welding job and someone asks who invited the big-nosed dork, i should embrace Big-Nosed-Dorkism? How does creating “isms” protect you from the biggest “ism” that has been around since the dawn of time? —Jackassism.  
The world is full of jackasses. What the FUCK is “Feminism” going to do about Jackasses? Probably just as much as Al Sharpton has done to eliminate Racism.

>changes her name
Only if she chooses to.
>changes her home
And? Why wouldn’t you live with the person you’re married to?
>leaves her family
If your husband is telling you that you can’t see your family you need to get a divorce ASAP. Besides that, if she’s getting married she shouldn’t be living with her family ANYWAY.
>moves in with you
Yes, that’s generally a part of being married. Why is this listed like it’s a BAD thing?
>builds a home with you
Again, how is this bad? How is this to her detriment?
>gets pregnant for you, bears a child for you.
If she can. If she chooses to. If it’s what she WANTS.
>pregnancy destroys her body
I don’t think that *every* woman has her body “destroyed” by pregnancy
>she gets fat
It’s not “fat”, it’s a fucking baby.
>almost gives up in the delivery room due to the extreme amount of pain she is going through
If I recall correctly, most of the women in my family who had children got a c-section specifically to avoid that. Natural birth isn’t the only option.
>even the kids she delivers bear your name
If that’s the choice you make as a couple.
>Until the day she dies, everything she does benefits you
And what? You think the man just sits on his ass all day doing absolutely nothing? No. Chances are, if a woman is staying home raising the kids, HE is working. HE is working for the benefit of his WIFE and CHILDREN. 
With an attitude like this, whoever wrote this crap would be lucky to even find a man willing to deal with her bullshit.
