Funny, I thought women were soldiers too in Israel... A bit hard to not "hide" behind civilians when 1) you are one and 2) in your own backyard.

You sound like the dumbshit US soldiers complaining about people carrying weapons in Afghanistan when the entire area's a fucking demilitarized zone when not outright a war-zone. Of course, they're both armed and in civilian areas. It's their opponents that're insanely myopic about how over-privileged their position is. Rolling tanks down streets, while daring anyone to use their own bloody roads in accordance to local laws, then bitching about the locals carrying AKs...

There is no good. There is only power. Initiation of force is the issue, but political bullshit already loaded that. Monsters ironically were originally juxtaposed with heroes primarily in that heroes were prettier to humans. Most were overprivileged douche-nozzles as many monsters were just hermits from an older world that occasionally got in the way of some king or mob's plans. Why submit yourself to psychotic abusers, if you have any other choice? You're not a better person for being their pretentious slave but increasingly less of a person. Ironically, the NSA are monsters making monsters in service of the worst monsters the world has ever seen. Serve them or theirs and you're a monster too, just a sniveling little toady bitch on the bottom, another proud cog in the growing totalitarian machine.br"Sometimes peace is another word for surrender."

"Is it better to out-monster the monster or to be quietly devoured?"
Might want to look up slave morality though. Those who refuse to eat monsters just make them well fed. Would I want to be "friends" with people that expect me to dive under the bus when useful to them? Reciprocity rarely exists in reality, mostly just the pretense wrapped in sophistry, and it's assumption is of no utility when you lose more than you gain.

Mostly I leave people the fuck alone and wish they neutrally fucked off. Even the well meaning are mostly parasitic to me and obstacles to my purposes. The golden rule is pyrite but makes for a nice beatin' stick when its bruises double as scarlet letters for violation of a given subculture's version of PC.

Ironic. The "more human" one actually passed by failing the "humanity" test. Leon was genuinely disturbed by the questions though not exactly in a "normal" manner. Rachael was a flat-line. That implication was personally disturbing and confusing as child. Even weirder now since I notice neurotypicals would likewise pass such by failing while real autists would more likely fail by passing, though the former would be way more likely to shoot you, natch.

Also, reminds me of Robocop (the series...) noting a politician was passing his voice stress analyzer by such deep conditioning that he couldn't even intentionally fail. Those'd easily pass such an emotion test would more likely fail such a stress test and vice versa. How much "empathy" nowadays is shallow, myopic, conditioned cliche? Lack of empathy for acceptable targets not only gets free passes but even can count for empathy points via privileging of "normality" and its redefining "humanity" as a term of social approval. The socially recognized "nice" people are usually the most deluded and/or deceitful.

Force vaginal intercourse or fellatio ON a male isn't classified as "sexual assault" in NC, much less "rape". It's just a misdemeanor instead of a felony. Quite an issue. There's a similar situation in the UK and apparently Texas as per the poster I was originally replying to before your proudly ignorant sexists trolled in.

Yeah, and RAPE stats always include all "sexual assault"? Notice it only specifies penetration. Much like the UK, being "forced to penetrate" isn't classified as criminal "penetration" as per "sexual act" merely "sexual contact" which is just "sexual battery". The CDC didn't class "forced to penetrate" as not rape for a reason, You pretentious, deluded little shit-stain.

Yep. They just won't admit it, like so many things. See so much shit as a long time moderator of a dating site and getting roped into unpaid tech support. Chick brags about putting her ankles behind her head but bitches about a guy directly asking her about sex yet has multiple dick pic guys on a rotating booty call schedule. Offered me anal sex first time I spoke to her. Worst example, ignoring my personal abusers who were/are easily my vocal majority, but at least near a majority of chicks do shit like that at some point, usually on and off for at least a decade. Most reports of inappropriate messages I ever saw were from females that'd lost an argument they'd started and were just pissed about it. Sadly, it still counted against the guys.
