Do not assault and abuse priests in the name of ‘equality’

26 Feb

A few weeks back, a video surfaced of some very angry Argentinian women attacking a group of male priests as they stood in defence of their cathedral.

[Warning: this video contains violence, vulgarity, and female nudity]

What the hell is going on here?

The reason for this conflict is because Argentina has strict laws which limit abortion. Abortions may only be conducted if the woman has been raped, or if she is mentally incapable of rearing a child. The women in the video are fighting for their rights to have control over their own bodies, to be able to choose to have abortions, and they blame the Catholic church for blocking the removal of religious based abortion laws through the Argentinian governmental system.

At a certain point in the video, the women are chanting:

“To the Roman Catholic Apostolic Church, who wants to get between our sheets, we say that we want to be whores, travesties and lesbians. Legal abortion in every hospital.”

I know that these issues are contentious, but my personal belief is that a woman has the right to choose what happens to her body, so in theory, I sympathise with these women.

But in action? Not so much.

The women in this video are attacking the men standing guard of their church. They swear at them, spray-paint the men’s crotches, draw swastikas on the foreheads of the men, perform lewd acts together in front of the men, and even force their naked bodies against the men, intentionally causing the men to touch their nipples, bums and vaginas. The women run around topless and even completely naked as they scream at the top of their lungs. They spit in the faces of the priests and violently attack them.

Why it’s so very wrong to behave this way

Fair play, sometimes it’s difficult not to lose your shit when you feel like you’re being oppressed. I get that. Trust me, I seriously do know what it’s like to want to punch people in the face because they’re mistreating you. The thing is, by actually following through with your urges to violence, you downgrade yourself. Regardless of the validity of your point, you won’t be taken seriously.

If you’ve just seen someone rip off their clothes and force a priest to touch their breast before drawing a swastika on his head, punching him in the face, spitting in his eyes and then masturbate in front of him while grinding against him, would you take that persons opinion seriously?

No! Of course you wouldn’t! How could you possibly separate their opinion from their ridiculous and vulgar actions?

In addition to the fact that much of the behaviour in this video is actually criminal, the bigger reason that it’s the wrong thing to do is that it damages the movement the women believe they are fighting for.

Imagine the thoughts running through the minds of these very religious men as they’re being spat upon and punched and spray-painted. The women in the video are living out what these priests believe to be the actions of temptation and sin. The women in the video are proving to their religious enemies that they can’t even protest without acting like Godless heathens.

Personally, I’m not religious, but even as a non religious person I still think it’s way beyond necessary to spit in a priests face because you disagree with the actions of the church. That’s like spitting at the kid who serves you at McDonalds because you’re unhappy with the company’s globalisation efforts. It’s not the kid’s fault and it’s not the priest’s fault, and spitting on them isn’t going to fix anything anyway.

These women claim to be feminists but behaviour like this makes it more difficult for the women’s movement to progress against a heavily religious government. It reinforces mistaken religious beliefs that women are temptresses designed to cause men to sin. It does the exact opposite of the intention of the protest. That’s why it’s a fucking terrible way to protest.

Better options

What better options do these women have? Pretty much every option except the one they’ve chosen.

In most places, women are near enough to half the population, so voting is an excellent way to bring about change. These women could have supported politicians who would go on to fight for their rights using the political system.

Another reasonably approach would have been to use the media, both domestically and abroad. Unlike only a few decades ago, we now have the opportunity to create and share journalistic content ourselves. We can make important issues known not just within our own small communities, but we can make our voices heard the world over.

In this particular case, though, I think the best way to stick it to the religious litigators would have been to have a peaceful protest. Instead of raging at the priests, treat them in the same exact way the women themselves are fighting to be treated… with respect and dignity. Imagine how differently the rest of the world would have reacted in 20,000 women had gathered around that church and stayed there for a week without damaging anything or hurting anyone. Imagine the positive message that would have brought for the women’s rights movement in Argentina. It would have shown the powers that be that these women are here and demand to be noticed, but that they’re civilized enough to have reasonably discussions about the problems they’re facing.

Learn from this

The fight to ensure women around the world are treated as equals to men is a very worthy cause. Believe it or not, the majority of blokes I know are also in favour of women being treated as equals. The problem is that the remaining bag of dickheads who do see women as inferior point at actions like those seen in this video as evidence which proves their outdated way of thinking.

I think the thing to take from seeing this clusterfuck of violence and criminal behaviour is to learn that you get far better outcomes by choosing not to lose your shit, even in the face of oppression and mistreatment. Like I said, I totally understand the urge to boil over with rage and go apeshit, but if it will only get you further away from what you’re really after, what do you gain from doing so?

The archaic structures that are still in place to limit people’s individual freedoms and rights are being smashed away more quickly than at any point in human history, but we must all be patient as we try to deconstruct these relics from yesterday.

Crazy bitch tip: Screaming and spitting do not help you get your point across effectively.

Be less childish than your child

22 Dec

Watch this.

That blonde lady is a real bitch. She is a horrible, horrible person. Her son bullied the sweet young lady who’s on stage, and this blonde goblin dares to point out that she had a difficult time hearing that her son got in trouble for doing so! I’m not sure what planet she’s on but it sure as hell ain’t Earth.

Blonde thingI can’t believe she had the gall to taunt the woman who is kindly standing up for her emotionally abused daughter and then, when she’s caught out doing it, to throw out the most insulting of all apologies “I’m sorry if that made you feel bad”. Fuck her!

The thing that pushes the bully’s mother from bitch territory right over the edge into crazy bitch territory, is that she’s acting that way while she’s being filmed. She’s being so awful with full knowledge that she’s being filmed, and that means she thinks what she’s doing is ok!

Condesending and immature

This screenshot doesn’t capture the Cheshire cat smile this bitch has while taunting the bullied girls mother, watch the video from about 5:42 to get a proper look at it.

Double fuck her for daring to say things like “We’ll pray for you” and all the other rubbish about God. I’m not religious but I’ve got no real qualms with anyone believing in something if it makes their life better, but I sure have an issue with these human ringworms who decide they’re all high and mighty because they have faith in a religion.

When that blonde thing implies that she’s a good person because she has faith it makes me want to throw some holy water on her just to see if she catches fire and melts into the ground. If her God is up there, he sure as fuck ain’t opening any pearly gates for her!

It’s so obvious that the blonde’s son learned to bully from his mother’s example. I know ‘doctor’ Phil isn’t exactly high brow at the best of times but I can’t even comprehend how he just lets that blonde blob taunt and hassle that young girl and her mother after all the bullying and even death threats they experienced.

When the mother of the bullied child nearly breaks down into tears in disbelief that people seem to find her and her daughter’s suffering to be funny and entertaining, I’m right there with her. Seriously, what the fuck is going on? How is everyone just ok with how the bully’s mother is behaving? How does the entire audience not just rise up and chase her out of the studio?!!?

Beyond that, why the fuck is ‘doctor’ Phil talking down to the bullied girl’s mother? Why is he acting like she’s being unreasonable? Fair play, the bullied girl’s mother does have a whiny voice and she’s very mopy but she should be mopy! Her kid was mercilessly bullied and the parents of two of her daughter’s attackers are sitting there mocking her.

One thing that really gets me riled up is seeing a monster roaming around with the disguise of a human face. I reckon that blonde banshee is precisely that and I hope karma finds her and delivers a massive helping of comeuppance.

Crazy bitch tip: Never, ever use the apology “I’m sorry if that hurt your feelings”. It is the most insulting apology there is.
