If you’re poor, the only way you’re likely to injure someone is the old traditional way: artisanal violence, we could call it – by hands, by knife, by club, or maybe modern hands-on violence, by gun or by car.
But if you’re tremendously wealthy, you can practice industrial-scale violence without any manual labor on your own part. You can, say, build a sweatshop factory that will collapse in Bangladesh and kill more people than any hands-on mass murderer ever did, or you can calculate risk and benefit about putting poisons or unsafe machines into the world, as manufacturers do every day. If you’re the leader of a country, you can declare war and kill by the hundreds of thousands or millions. And the nuclear superpowers – the US and Russia – still hold the option of destroying quite a lot of life on Earth.
So do the carbon barons. But when we talk about violence, we almost always talk about violence from below, not above.
This is a brilliant moment.
Here we have Kaylee, a mechanic who is not afraid to get a little (or a lot) of grease on her. She lives a pretty rugged life, but you know what? She also loves pretty, frilly things.
Joss could have taken her down the “I’m a tomboy and I scoff at your girly-things” route, but he didn’t. Instead he took her character and said hey, it’s okay to like engines and like pretty frilly things. You don’t have to give up one because it doesn’t fit in with the stereotype of the other.
THIS is the type of message TV should be sending; that you should never change an aspect of yourself just because you don’t fit into a stereotypical box.
Q:feminism is a failed movement. that is why silly cunts like you need to fill that empty void in your life with a delusional idea like feminism, i thank the gods that not all females are not some nut job like broads like you who think the way you do. i know strong female and i have dated many who take no shit some people and do not follow all the bullshit lies that is feminism. you're just as deluded as those morons who think there will be world peace one day. there will alwaysbe war and death.
I’m guessing you’re a guy but you could be a girl, you chose to be gutless and send this anonymously so I can’t tell.
1. You have a very clouded view of feminism if you think it’s delusional. What is delusional about wanting equal rights for men and women? What is delusional about wanting men and women to be paid the same? What is delusional about fighting for something that should have been normal since this world began?
2. I feel so sorry for you if you have no hope that one day there will be world peace. You must live a really depressing life. There is a difference between wishing for world peace and thinking it will happen. I wish for world peace because I’d be a pretty awful human being if I didn’t.
And last but not least, what the fuck does war have to do with me being a feminist?
Please, if you reply to this, come to me with a valid argument and rational ideas instead of this bullshit. Don’t waste my fucking time with your narrow mind.
Ps Keep using the word cunt, because yes, I do have a cunt as I am a girl and that’s the only thing that should separate men and women.
