Comment Re:Yay for Men's rights... and other possibilities (Score 1) 184

There is no such real thing as "Feminazi" - the radical feminists are more like Stalinists: fantasies of pogroms (see: Julie Bindel) against the "other" (men) and dissidents in their own ranks (such as women who decide to be homemakers). Really, they're like Conservatives, who are in turn just like them. See: Horseshoe Theory.

Some feminists welcome artificial wombs because it frees women from the expectation of childbirth.

Comment Yay for women's rights, too (Score 2) 184

Imagine future generations of womankind growing up in a world where women are no longer needed for making children except for their eggs. This is a first step toward that. And that's not the end of the world for women. It's more like the end of the beginning.

Look at how dishwashers and vacuum cleaners worked out - did women think that was the end of the world because so-called "women's work" was in part automated? Noep, noep, and absolutely noep, it freed women to do other things. Patriarchal boneheads at the time complained about women having more free time but in the end only the Tradcon fringe thinks "women's work" is a thing anymore.

The artificial womb will free women from the expectation of motherhood in order to perpetuate the species. markdavis's remark about women being able to build up their professional life without worrying about missing out on motherhood will be just the first symptom of this liberating technology. Perhaps we'll never be rid of the Tradcons, but technology like this will further enable women to not give a crap about what they think.

Those who do the basic workload for standard pay will be replaced by those who give everything they can for peanuts.

Those who give everything they can for peanuts will then be replaced by those who give everything they can for nothing, or next to nothing.

Then those will be replaced by automation.

Then what?

Has anyone here read this?

That's like telling Muslims that it's their responsibility for policing terrorists. Thinking like yours is what led to internment camps for Japanese and German American citizens.

Also: what proof do you even have that kick6's friends are raping or assaulting women?

When are you going to ask women to police their female friends about domestic violence? Study after study shows that women are equally as physically aggressive, or moreso, than the men in their relationships.

Want an even more authentic source? The CDC provides that.

You don't even want to know what the stats are for lesbian partner violence.

The price you pay at the pump doesn't include what you pay in tax dollars for the US military to protect our oil imports, or the terrorism that this breeds.

The price you pay at the pump doesn't include the pollution we all suffer as a result of burning gasoline. There's global warming, for one, which has resulted in the recent spat of horrible weather, record droughts, and poor harvests. Of course Republicans still deny that there's any such thing as pollution, to say nothing of global warming. They think smog is a figment of moonbat tree hugging liberals' imagination...
Actual cost of a gallon of gas = $10.70 to $15.70 / gallon
