    It isn't about censorship. It's about influence. People have the right to promote misogyny on Facebook, to create a group for it, and to seek out membership. I have the right to not like it, bitch about it, and rally people to my counter-cause. What about this is unfair to you?

    I don't need to look. I guess that's the difference. None so blind as those who don't want to see.
    *Some people enjoy feeling like a victim*, hence the proliferation of identity politics (gender, race, sexuality, etc.) and class envy in the 21st century.
    One would think, if that were true, they would be campaigning for more stupid ignorance and prejudice, rather than less...

    I suppose you think that the 15 y/o girl who got shot in the head by the Taliban for going to school was just looking for publicity, huh?

    Those damn victims, always bleeding the fuck over everything! What's their problem?
