The blog where I rant about things that should be obvious to everyone

As a man with a 4 year degree in computer science, and a mediocre job doing web development I'm not really qualified to comment on politics, religion, or anything else, but I'll be damned if that stops me.

Championing Women

A lot of different sources are reporting the same things about Trump's lewd statements caught on mic.  Some of the more interesting bits are that this seems to be a smear job coming from the GOP, specifically the Bush family rather than from the left.  And that the GOP members who are currently resting on their fainting couches have all dealt with people who they knew in their private lives were much worse, including pedophiles.  So it's all so much virtue signaling.  

One point that I've only seen discussed at Dalrock's is that this has been framed as an attack on women, while completely ignoring the ramifications of marriage.  Which goes to show that the GOP doesn't care about conserving the family, but would rather conserve feminism.  

My own point is that I take issue with Paul Ryans statement, beyond it being a betrayal of his word and position.  

"Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified."  No.  They are not.  Women are not a cause.  They are not some abstract ideal.  They are just people.  In particular they are people who in America are overweight, abrasive, prone to putting the short term goal of being a cubical drone over the long term goal of perpetuating the human race, and murderers to the tune of 600,000 children per year.  I see nothing about this demographic to champion or revere.  As if doing so with any demographic based on traits determined at conception would be anything short of retarded.

  1. "Championing" is what one does to a weaker person who needs help. Women, as we have been told so many times, are not weaker than men; they are 1000 times stronger. So why do they need a champion? And "revering" is what one does to a god or an object of worship. Why would these good church-going women want to be instrumental in an act of blasphemy and idolatry? And why hasn't someone beaten the dogshit out of Paul Ryan before now?
