Among the healthy and mature, there's no right "not to be offended"; not for men, and not for women. There is 100% equality here.

That is not the equality which feminism is about. Being able to be offended is free speech and has nothing to do with feminism at all. In fact, being offended may be completely false or completely legitimate and none of that is relevant to anything

There is no part of "right" here, and is 100% wrong. You don't combat counterfeit items by destroying them, that doesn't do anything. You build a better product and accept that counterfeit exists because you aren't serving some part of the market. Serve that part, or deal with that the market has routed around your shortcomings via counterfeits.

Exact dosage is impossible, so how many civilian casualties are acceptable per knocked out assailant? Will you passively let people be killed by not using the gas, or actively kill a few to save more?

I don't understand how this situation can be interesting enough to dedicate newspaper articles to it over and over. It never changes. The answers never change. People arguing that theirs is the only correct one never change. Maybe condemning the actions of others of a different ethical persuasion never gets old? That almost has to be it. Everything else stays the same.

Feminist blogger? What does that even mean? You're defining something in a way that cannot possibly be correct, because you imply feminist bloggers are women. Your entire concept of "feminist blogger" is wrong. First: There are men who also push for women to have equal rights too.
Second: you've got it backwards. Most of the SJW's are men who say that they're being oppressed by "feminists", or women who push for equality.

Feminism becomes obsolete when women and men are treated equally and with equal privilege, something you very clearly do not understand.

Why does Bennett Hassleton keep using /. as his personal blog, and why is he allowed to? I post this question every time he does a blog, and I've never received a proper answer.

pre-emptive: Can I find anything wrong with what you wrote? Yes, the fact what you wrote is displayed where it is.
