International Cat Speculators Since 2006


Getting my Herald Saturday morning and opening it up, out falls Canvas as per usual.

Which reminds me of a article some weeks ago about a modern feminist.

When asked about the relevance of feminism, she gave 3 reasons why it was still needed.

1. Rape

2. Domestic Violence

3. Advertising.

Ok, first of all Rape. Yes, that’s a problem, and a serious one. But it’s almost a women’s problem by definition.

Domestic Violence though is twice as common woman against man than man beating woman. It’s true – every so often you’ll hear of a new study on the news that “stumbles onto the fact”.

Think about it. Women can beat men silly without anything ever happening but the minute a man strikes back, even once, his life is over.

Hm.

Now to the kicker, advertising.

Perhaps this would have some credibilty had the feminist in question not appeard on the cover of Canvas naked.

  1. “Ok, first of all Rape. Yes, that’s a problem, and a serious one. But it’s almost a women’s problem by definition.”

    This statement is actually fairly innaccurate. Thousands of men and boys are victims of rape worldwide annually; they are simply even less likely to report the violation than women.

    “Domestic Violence though is twice as common woman against man than man beating woman. It’s true – every so often you’ll hear of a new study on the news that “stumbles onto the fact”.”

    This statement is just mindboggling. I suspect a bit more research into the history of gender-violence and the generally treatment of women by men on your part might be in order (my blog is a great place to start).

    “Perhaps this would have some credibilty had the feminist in question not appeard on the cover of Canvas naked. ”

    And what pray tell does her nudity or lack theirof have to do with her credibility? Exactly what is it that makes people believe that the moment women take her clothes off in front of a camera anything she has to say is completely invalid. Enquiring minds would really love to know.

    Blessings.

  2. “And what pray tell does her nudity or lack theirof have to do with her credibility? Exactly what is it that makes people believe that the moment women take her clothes off in front of a camera anything she has to say is completely invalid. Enquiring minds would really love to know.”

    Oops, let’s try that again shall we…

  3. Rape: yes, you’re right. I suggest you take a a look at the word “almost” – that’s actually exactly why that word is there.

    Violence – in this country the most comon violence is by men on men, usually on the way home from the pub, i.e. after too many drinks.

    Words like “history of gender-violence and the generally treatment of women by men” have always rankled me in this light. Violence is a fact of our fallen world, men *and* women suffer from it, and it helps no one to just focus on the problem in the way you do, through a narrow, one-way focus.

    Just let me say this: if I hit my wife, I expect that I will be hauled into the courts. That is right and fair. If she hits me, I will take it and forgive her.

    My statment on this one stands.

    (BTW, have you seen the Lift+ add where the smash the vase?)

    “Exactly what is it that makes people believe that the moment a women takes her clothes off in front of a camera anything she has to say is completely invalid.”

    Let me throw this right back at you – exactly what makes you believe that I believe that any statment by a woman who has posed in front of a camera naked is invalid?

    I don’t.

    But posing naked for an ad, then complaining about sexism in advertising kind of invalidates her on that point. But I’m sure you disagree.

  4. “Violence is a fact of our fallen world, men *and* women suffer from it, and it helps no one to just focus on the problem in the way you do, through a narrow, one-way focus.”

    Yes, men and women do suffer from violence. But by and large violence by men. It’s time for the general male population to finally acknowledge the hell that they have created.

    Blessings.

  5. Perhaps these studies are the very evidence you need to prove they are doing what you say they should.
