MORNINGS WITH YOU
I slowly wake
as day is dawning
and lips imploring.
The sheets against my skin,
like wrapping paper
on Christmas morning.
Ahh, the final form of neoliberalism appears: misanthropy. I mean, you’re free to do whatever you want with yourself, but I think me and mine will continue living.
Nice false equivalence though.
The idea that victims of oppression are “better off dead” is genocide justification, nothing more or less. This is a very privileged, irresponsible and fucking evil mindset.
I’m stuck on how that thinking relates to the treatment of people who’re physically and/or mentally disabled my reaction is just NO NO NO HELL NO.
Beyond privileged and evil.
"I could stop stabbing you, but since I’ve started, you’re better off dead! I’m doing YOU a favor!"
I like how the argument just dismisses the fact the world could be any other way, and that the only answer is death.
white people: don’t blame us for our ancestors! i’m not responsible for those white people or what they did just because we’re the same color!
same white people: look at all these inventions you poc wouldn’t have without white people! i didn’t invent any of it but i’ma take responsibility for these ancestors just based on being the same skin color!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Facebook friend of mine had the perfect thing to say about this creep:
This is why, despite being a nonbeliever and a scientifically minded person, I hesitate to identify as a member of the skeptic/atheist community- it is dominated by pompous white men who find doing things like categorizing rape into different “levels” of badness, and playing logical fallacy “gotcha” games with anyone hurt by this, to be a diverting intellectual exercise. In truth, they may act like this is nothing more than a fun little project, but this is to hide how much emotional validation and sexual enjoyment they derive from this game. Their intent is to do harm, and to assert power by the further gaslighting and violation of boundaries of those who protest. The more you ask them to stop, the more excited they get, and the more they will try to pull you into a “debate” and harm you further. This is not done in the spirit of true inquiry and debate; it is abuse disguised in the sterile wrapping of “discourse.”
Dawkins is such a moron. Largely because he seems to think women think of rape exclusively as a crime rather than as a traumatic experience.
Nobody cares how many years in jail you can get for a rape, Dickie, if they’re trying to put the pieces of their psyche back together and are fairly certain it’s not worth it to bother even telling the police. Your utilitarian calculations of badness don’t matter to someone who feels totally destroyed, and apparently evolution forgot to include the notion of human empathy and compassion in your general asshole program.
Also, just let’s clarify why this is stupid legally as well as stupid empathically: the justice system in most countries knows that a-crime-with-violence-added should be a charge of the base crime, plus the crime of using violence to commit a crime. That’s why you can have more than one charge. Here’s how it works:
1) Rape is a crime.
2) Threatening someone with a knife is a crime.
If you committed the crime in (2), you may deserve harsher punishment for (1), the way we do sentencing, but maybe not (up to the judge really); you get punished for two separate crimes, even if committed together, as separate charges.
In other words, even our justice system tries to keep these things separate so that you don’t dilute the badness of them.
You shouldn’t have to “compare” date rape and rape at knifepoint. Crime at knifepoint is wrong. Rape is wrong. Both are crimes, both can be committed independently of one another. Comparing them creates the even more awkward situation where you start comparing “knifepoint attack plus rape” to “knifepoint attack alone,” and then we really go down a shitty rabbit hole to a hell dominated by White Men who think rape victims give half a shit about everything I just mentioned.
This is basically why Richard Dawkins should just stop talking. He gives the rest of us evolutionists a bad name.
This is disgusting…I am convinced all rich/well-known white men are sociopaths
