Some Feminists Think Learning Self-Defense Is Wrong?

There are some mind sets that I intellectually realize are out there, but just can’t wrap my head around. Apparently (because FSM knows I hate watching pageants and wouldn’t know if not for the blogosphere), Miss Nevada remarked that women should learn self-defense against rape and several feminists collectively lost their shit.

This is the tweet that blew my mind:

“Women shouldn’t need to learn to protect themselves against rape #missnevada educate and respect yourself as a woman #rapeculture” – @annabethwest

I would be ecstatic if women didn’t have to learn self-defense because of no rape, murder, or other violence in our society.

That being said, it is the height of foolish arrogance to demand that women suffer the physical, mental, and emotional anguish of violence simply to conform to your worldview.

To Anna Beth West and those like-minded, quite simply, you sicken me.

And Larry does his normal job of tearing apart the foolishness.

  1. A friend of mine said “I think the reason why the phrase “I’m not like most girls” annoys me so much is because women have been conditioned to feel like they have to disassociate themselves from the female gender to be recognized as an interesting human being and if that isn’t fucked up then I don’t know what is.”

    The reason why Andrew Marston of Marshfield MA is upset at Shadowdancer is that Shadowdancer is R. K. Modena and has just published a rather good novelette entitled Sparrowind, which is available on Lulu and iTunes. Meanwhile, Andrew Marston has published nothing, though he has written some execrably bad science fantasy. He’s Yamathespacefish on DeviantArt, and you can read it if you dare. It’s fun for MSTing and passing around at conventions to laugh at.
