What was your question again? My main issue is with this Axver character who has always come across as a self righteous know it all. Can't say I'm surprised though, the people from that little country at the arse end of the world generally come with massive chips on their shoulders.

Oh look, conveniently ignore the legitimate responses to your posts (I notice you completely ignored the fact that opposing abortion does nothing to actually reduce the number of abortions, which, if as you say, they're murder, why wouldn't you want to support policies - like those that Democrats have historically supported more than Republicans - that would reduce them?) and focus on insulting people based on where they're from.

I will say that you aren't alone in acting poorly, but it's a bad look to already be slinging insults around on your first trip into FYM. You're on really, really thin ice.

In your own words, you're OK with murder if the woman was raped? That seems inconsistent.



As for my own beliefs, abortion is not murder. It is a medical procedure.

It's obvious this poster has no intention whatsoever to have a discussion. The biggest takeaway from all of this is that Trump has fooled folks into believing he's actually "pro-life".

I believe that's "aloha snackbar."

Ignoring the blatant trolling, as so many have said after the debate, there is NO SUCH THING as a 9-month abortion. It's called a c-section. My God, do we need such basic education now? Like, there are people who think that you can scrape out an 8 pound baby like a D&C. Christ on a bicycle.

Assuming he's not trolling, why argue with this guy when the gulf between our definition of murder and his is absolutely enormous? You're not getting anywhere with somebody that steadfastly thinks his opposition is a gang of bloodthirsty murderers.

In discussing the third and final 2016 presidential debate with Fox News Radio host Alan Colmes, Babin defended Donald Trump’s decision to turn to the audience while Clinton was speaking and interject: “Such a nasty woman!”

“You know what? She’s saying some nasty things,” Babin replied.

“You think it’s appropriate to call her a ‘nasty woman’?” pressed Colmes, a liberal political commenter.

“Well, I’m a genteel Southern gentleman, Alan,” the GOP congressman maintained.

“So does that mean no?” Colmes said.

“No, I think sometimes a lady needs to be told when she’s being nasty,” Babin said.

“Oh, really?”

“I do.”
Total mystery why this party is struggling with female voters. Yep.

Today's feminism doesn't seek equality, it seeks a lot more rights for women than men. It sickens me.
This bullshit claim is the bread and butter of militant, sad, pathetic MRAs. If your masculinity is so threatened it says a hell of a lot more about you than it does about feminists.

Something I find really strange is the Venn diagram of conservatives' views of women. There's a bloke I follow on Twitter who has written articles bemoaning the lack of chivalry in today's society, which, okay, if I humour you I can see the merit in.

They all think they're such gentlemen for their "women and children first" stance.

Except they're the same men who think women's roles in society is to bear children, cook, clean, be seen and not heard.

They will thumb their nose down at me for not holding a door open or taking the prettiest girl to the ball as if I'm some sort of monster, but fuck those women if they want to get an abortion, or equal pay, or not stalked right?

It's easy enough to reconcile for these people, since to them women are objects. They exist either for men to demonstrate their virtuous qualities as "nice guys", or to act as a pretty ornament attached to your arm.

Bingo. It's patronizing and incredibly hypocritical.

Another example is the right's hand-wringing about women possibly being attacked in restrooms in relation to the whole transgender thing. Their "concern" has a really uncomfortable air of, "But how will these poor fragile women be able to defend and protect themselves?!" about it that seriously rubs me the wrong way and tends to speak MUCH more to their obvious discomfort with people not following their stereotypical view of how men and women are "supposed" to look.

The whole attitude kind of reads to me like that description of "nice guys" who do all these superficially "gentlemanly" things, stuff they think men are "supposed" to do for women...while secretly having not so innocent underlying reasons for doing them.

Moderator, are you going to publicly shame this poster the way you did me and issue him with a warning as well?

As for cobl04, I really do pity whoever your friends and family are for having to deal with a pretentious and self righteous wanker on a daily basis.

It's a particularly good accompaniment to rooting.
