Sometimes there are things you can’t resist, no matter how much you know you should stay away from it. I’m (if you haven’t figured it out already) not quite the most “politically correct” individual, I view myself as a “centrist”, a believer in the facts, not your feelings.
So when I came across a lovely post that a (clearly proud) feminist put up for all those to enjoy: A list of 10 questions every feminist should be asking someone on a first date. I assume this is so they find out if the person they’re having this date with is someone willing to bow down and do whatever she says, believes what she believes and repeats everything she says to those who oppose her. Y’know, white knights and all that shit.
So anyways, let’s get this train wreck a’ rollin!
1. Do you believe that Black Lives Matter?
I believe that all lives matter, but of course, any sane, moral and reasonable person believes that yes, black lives do matter. However, when I see the capitalization, I know what the message truly is. It’s not if I believe “black lives matter” but if I believe in the “Black Lives Matter” movement. That being the case, then my thoughts are significantly different.
The #BlackLivesMatter movement in its early beginnings was like many other movements. It had potential, it had good intentions and carried a message that at first was a very good one. However as most racially-driven movements become, over time either the wrong people were put in charge, or they put themselves in charge and the message began to change. At this current time, I do not view the #BLM movement as one of racial equality, peace and morality, rather it is a movement based on hatred, violence and yes, racism.
2. What are your thoughts on gender and sexual orientation?
I don’t have thoughts about something that isn’t of importance in life. I’ve said it before, I do not believe your gender, nor your sexuality has any bearing on who you are as a person. As a bisexual male who recently “discovered” this part of myself, my personality has not changed in the slightest, I am who I am based on things other than my male genes and my interest in having sex with both men and women.
However, if you really want to put the gun to my head, I’ll make it simple. I believe in absolute equality for all biological genders and all sexual orientations (so long as you’re not touching kids), no questions asked.
3. How do you work to dismantle sexism and misogyny in your life?
By not being sexist or misogynistic in my daily life. It’s not that hard.
Oh and me liking video games and anime where boobs and butts are things that exist and shown off, that doesn’t make me a sexist misogynist pig. Grow up.
4. What are your thoughts on sex work?
Oldest profession and an honourable one at that, despite what many people say on both sides. I believe it’s a trade that we need to take more seriously, be more open about and quite honestly stop looking at in such a vulgar, disgusting manner. If there are men and women who want to sell their bodies in a sexual manner and there is a market for them, who are we to stop them. So long as we can regulate the sex industry so that every worker within it is working safely, I see zero issue with sex work, such as prostitution.
5. Are you a supporter of the BDS movement?
I had to research this one, it appears to be about putting pressure on Israel to overturn it’s various violations of international law in terms of returning the Palestinian land it’s occupied and creating full equality for Arab-Palestinians and such.
I have no real opinion on this issue, other than the simple fact I believe in full equality for all. So get on that shit, Israel.
6. What is your understanding of settler colonialism and indigenous rights?
I don’t believe creating “foreign” regions is an intelligent idea. Any immigrants/refugees entering a country should be coming into said country with the understanding that there is an expectation that if they want to live in that country or take refuge in that country, they must adapt to the country in all walks of life, whether that’s learning the language, abiding by all the country’s laws and quite frankly, making a conceded effort to just fit in. Yes, it’s also on us to make our country welcome to outsiders. But with what I’ve seen of such examples of these “colonies” like in Sweden, it’s not working out at all.
7. Do you think capitalism is exploitative?
Everything can be exploited. It’s just that capitalism is certainly better than communism.
8. Can any human be illegal?
I’m assuming this pertains to immigration, to which the answer is yes. If you come into a country you are not a citizen of and you enter illegally, guess what? YOU’RE AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT!!!
It’s not that hard, folks.
9. Do you support Muslim Americans and non-Muslim people from Islamic countries?
I support anyone and everyone from any country, any nation. But like I said in Question #6, so long as you abide by the law and make an effort to “fit in”, you’ll be fine.
However, it’s not Islamophobic to call members of Islamic culture out for partaking in some extremely disgusting behavior, whether it’s via their religion, or their own personal beliefs.
10. Does your allyship include disabled folks?
I don’t view people as “allies”, that makes me believe I look at a group of people as those I can use to further push my political agenda. I will once again refer to something I’ve said several times in this article:
I BELIEVE IN EQUALITY FOR ALL!!!
Is that good enough for ya?
…Well I guess that fictional date is probably over. And by probably, I mean 110% over. That feminist would’ve left halfway into question #2.
