I'm a little sick of hearing how it's bad to make blanket accusations by people

making blanket accusations.

It takes a breathtaking level of unmitigated hypocrisy to claim xenophobia is the motivation for people opposing a rape culture that inspires mass sexual assaults.

1. Fortunately, it's a handful of cranks, mostly.

 

In other words, people who have remonstrated, repeatedly, that their thinking on the matter is borderline irrational...so who gives a solitary fuck what they think?

2. If it weren't for the fact these individuals are making blanket sacrifices of women while

seeking to call themselves allies in other matters it wouldn't be so critical. The last thing we need in the War on Women is to take fire from within supposedly friendly ranks.

4. Fake progressives.

 

Their concern over actual, physical crimes against women, motivated in no small part by the misogynist influence of a canon of primitive, superstitious beliefs on the home culture of the perpetrators, is less important than their concern over the fee-fees* of those selfsame perpetrators. My contempt for that thought process is boundless.

* and yes, I selected that term precisely because it apparently annoys them...enough to provoke accusations of parroting "RW" points, despite them being the ones mindlessly defending a profoundly reactionary, conservative, sexist culture.

5. Seems a fair summation to me.

3. There is such a thing as PC multiculturalism

 

Some people really do believe anything is OK as long as it stems from a different culture. They feel it promotes diversity to allow people from other cultures to express their values by acting out their sexism and bigotry in western nations. Personally, I have no patience for such views. I don't call that tolerance or acceptance or anything like that. When people claim religious or cultural exemption for harming other people, my only response is, "If it's that important to you, go back to where your behavior was considered acceptable."

7. ITA, I have no patience with such types.

Oppressing half the human race is not acceptable, in any circumstances.

6. Seems the vast majority of these assaults are done by men.

 

Seems the vast majority of these assaults are done by men (who might yet be the first to cry foul if pointed out). However, as a blanket accusation against males would be self-indicting, I think I'll avoid any blanket statements to better avoid the logical fallacies they more often than not, actually are.
