This is how many trophy hunters kill animals, sitting in a comfy chair hidden in a blind, shooting at animals from a safe distance using a rifle with a telescopic scope, as the animal eats from the bait they put out for them. Oh yes, they do also call this a sport. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, these are cowards behind guns who have absolutely no regard to the responsibility required behind such a weapon. These are not people feeding their families, curbing predatory populations or even defending themselves. These are people whose minds are entrenched in entertainment and blind to the compassion required to appreciate life that does not need to end with this violence, or the consequences to a family who just lost their father, mother, brother or sister all for a game and nothing more.
Feminists who claim prostituted women have ‘choice’ are letting those women down. They may think they are helping them by invoking the ‘choice’ argument. They may have the best of intentions. But tell me, then, why all these feminists are not prostitutes themselves? Why not give up their well-paid jobs and become a well-paid prostitute or a well-paid porn star? Because – obviously – these feminists have some degree of choice, certainly more than the prostituted woman has. They may have had opportunities which the prostituted woman has not had. They would do well to think on that next time they are arguing that the woman who is being used by a man to achieve orgasm has any ‘choice’ in the matter.
