Dead Pool: Lost Another One!

Damn! Damn! Why didn’t I pick Andrea Dworkin? Damn!

  1. Timothy says:

    I’d say women are generally more skilled at being EEEVIL as opposed to men, but the general level of motivation toward that goal in the female and male populations is pretty similar.

    # EEEVIL* women ~ # EEEVIL men, but the women are better at it, so it gets noticed more. Representativeness bias and all that.

    *EEEVIL being defined as having the sorts of properties that George up there mentioned.

  2. Melissa says:

    Are we talking sheer number of EEEVIL women, or skill at being EEEVIL?

    E-vil? Fru-its of the de-v-il?

  3. Timothy says:

    Mel: Oh, I’m well aware that women are EEEVIL but on balance no more so than men, really.

  4. Clint says:

    I’ve personally sent a ex to a nice weekend in county for attacking me once. Believe me, it’s not something you’re exactly proud of once it’s all said and done. There was a lesson learned though, keep medicated women away from the Vodka+Cranberry at all times. Although I do have to say, I was strangely aroused seeing her in that Orange jumpsuit though.

    California’s domestic violence laws.. whoooooooiiiiiiiieeeeee.. if you’re on a trip to Cali, make sure to save all the anger and rage for when you cross the border back to Oregon, because a 2 year program at $50 a week is a nice Hyundai when it’s all said and done.

  5. Melissa says:

    Tim: he’s right. I’d rather be locked in a cage with starving rabid coyotes than spend an hour in a room with a group of teenage girls.

    Abusive Women

    Opinions on victims

    Google “abusive women,” and you’ll be astounded.

  6. Timothy says:

    George: I meant Kent, England. If I have to explain you just won’t get it.

    It also depends what you mean by “feminist” and it sounds like you’ve had some rather bad girl-related experiences. I’m sorry for that, man, but have you considered that maybe this adversarial outlook is the source of the trouble?

  7. George says:

    Feminist men are traitors to their gender.
    Women won the war of the sexes thousands of years ago by pretending that they lost it.

    So, before pornography there was no violence between the sexes?

    When a woman rapes a man, she obviosly does it in a different way, but the man feels as if he was raped. Women control, dominate, subjugate, manipulate men as often as man do it to women. But women do not go to prison for it. Women talk about double standards!

  8. George says:

    Timothy, you mean Kent State?

  9. Casey says:

    Man, she was ugly.

  10. Andy D says:

    Well, in all honestly, women really do get the shaft!!!

  11. John says:

    God, nothing pisses me off more than male feminists. Total pussies.

  12. Clint T. says:

    Another piss poor argument using too many generalizations and assumptions. Was anyone else not surprised?

    Does anyone have W.G. Sumner’s quote about the argument of a sentimentalist? Because that’s the next thing I’d like to see posted.

  13. JohnH says:

    The porn-violence link is that by looking at porn, men become desenitized to the fact that women are, in fact, other human beings. The theory is that men will start to think of women as things, and that those that are already a little off may take this out in violence.

    I read somewhere about a porn watching – violence connection, but most Americans don’t realize that correlation does not equal causality.

  14. Melissa says:

    Having an ex-prostitue telling people why sex/porn are wrong is like having one of those Victory Outreach members give testimony: I’m sure as hell not taking moral advice from someone with a questionable history.

  15. Andy D says:

    I’m think about the economics of porn. I hope I’m mixing econ with sex like sex with pastriami; the most sensual dried cured meat.

  16. Jan says:

    I never fully understood her conclusion that porn leads to violence against women. I don’t know about the next guy, but when I’m looking at a picture of a naked woman, I’m thinking “sweet, boobies!” not “I KILL YOU NOW!!”

    But I guess everybody’s different.

  17. Timothy says:

    This isn’t Kent, there are rules here.

  18. Timothy says:

    Well you can’t expect the Brits to understand the American legal system now, can you?

  19. Melissa says:

    According to the ambiguous article, she had a knee operation and didn’t fully recover.

    I say, proof that self-serving feminism is poison. That, and she probably had a serious VD from all that 1960’s prostitution.

  20. Danimal says:

    From the linked article:

    “Dworkin … helped draft a 1983 law in Indianapolis that allowed women to sue producers and distributors of pornography in civil court.

    “The law was overturned by a federal appeals court in 1985, but later upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.”

    No, no, no, no, no. Judge Posner’s decision in American Booksellers Association v. Hudnut was “affirmed on appeal” without comment by the Supreme Court … meaning they upheld not the ordinance but his overturning of the ordinance, in which he wrote that it amounted to “thought control.” Posner’s opinion has since become entrenched First Amendment doctrine which even the Supreme Court has cited. Lazy, sloppy, idiot reporting by Reuters.

    Anyway, yeah, who saw Dworkin’s death coming?

  21. Melissa says:

    I’m kicking myself. Anyway, My Picks for 2005.
