I'm gay conservative. Do I go around pretending I'm better than everyone else? No. Because that would be shitty

Ummm…okay? I’m not sure what this message was supposed to mean.

I don’t think I go around pretending I’m better than everyone else…I mean, smarter probably, but not better.

Hey, I know you've probably gotten a lot of hate for that one post with the kittens and the equality thing, and I don't think that's right. But I also don't think it's right to think you're better because you're oppressed. I'm certain you're a wonderful woman. I'm genderqueer and pansexual but one of my best friends is straight, and a cis male! I think love would be a better way to start a fight against oppression, rather than hate. Have a beautiful day, seriously. <3

I find it odd how much mail I’ve gotten over that post, especially since I didn’t even create the post…I just reblogged it. 

But thank you anyway!

idk if youve noticed but like... ive found that a lot of them time when liberals disagree with something they go to painstaking lengths to portray it as wholly evil? like its really funny because one usually thinks of conservatives thinking in terms of good and evil but they demonise shit so much whenever it threatens their perspective. like conservatives in general. on tumblr alone its considered mock-worthy to be a conservative??? i dont get it. arent lefties supposedly the "tolerant" ones?

Liberals like to redefine words. So instead of tolerant meaning “showing willingness to allow the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with." they think that being tolerant means being accepting so long as you agree with/like a person’s beliefs.

I’ve literally had liberals say things like: 

"I am tolerant, but that doesn’t mean being tolerant of people I disagree with!”

I've been following you for a while and just noticed that you have Ann Coulter listed on your about thing on your actual page. Now, I'm conservative on the majority of things, but Ann Coulter has always kind of come across as a poor representative of conservatives. Some of her research just seems faulty to me on certain issues, like she takes them too far. Just wanted to know if you have anything really good by her that you'd recommend for someone to try and see her in a different light.

I can’t say that I’ve ever found her research faulty myself, but I can agree that sometimes she says some very over the top stuff. I think she’s very good at getting media attention in that way (let’s fact it, I say some crazy stuff too, just looking to piss people off. Doesn’t mean it isn’t true, just means I say it in the most shocking way possible). 

I think in a lot of ways I learned how to piss people off from her and she probably does it for the same reason I do it…I enjoy it. That’s why neither she, nor I, would ever be a good person to run for office. I enjoy shocking people and annoying them harsh facts way way too much. 

I’m currently reading Mugged, which is her latest book (maybe, she might have written a new one, I can’t keep up). It’s taking me a while to get through because I’m reading other books as well.

do you answer all asks?

More or less. 

Some don’t get answered because I’ve received several questions along the same lines and I don’t feel like posting the same answer a half dozen times. 
Some are just really REALLY stupid (and given how stupid some have been that I HAVE posted, think about how stupid those that weren’t posted where). 

I frankly have way too much fan mail to post all of it without it getting obnoxious, so I only post a few of those and keep the rest.

And the rest sometimes have to sit a while because I’m busy and don’t have time to write a good answer, those usually get answered after a while, but it can take a week or two for me to do think about it and do any research involved.

I saw that "women against feminism" is gaining popularity, but as such there are mainstream articles saying "these women just dont get it/dont get feminism" I always thought these women DO get it and thats why they are against feminism... Are these journalists just pandering to the mainstream views, and whats your take on the whole thing?

(internally sighs in relief that this is a non-Israel/Gaza related ask: THANK YOU ANON!)

Okay, so here’s the thing. There’s Feminism and then there’s Feminism.

Feminism is what the journalists think that these women are talking about (or pretend that these woman are against). Feminism is the textbook definition. A fight for equal rights and all that jazz, something that early Feminists would be proud of.

Then there’s Feminism, which is an entirely different thing. Feminism is what we see from most of the Feminists on tumblr (and quite a lot in the real world as well). They may not be the majority, but they are VERY vocal and they are what “women against feminism” have a problem with. The are the people who shout about “teh patriarchy!11!!!!1!” and talk about “rape culture” and “the male gaze” and how the male gender needs to be “abolished”. This is what modern Feminism has been reduced to and what it is now recognized as. 

The two things have little to do with one another, but groups of women who are opposed to it have every right to be against it, because, frankly Feminists suck. They have ruined an entire movement with their “war on women” claptrap.

Feminists are the most vocal and most activist parts of feminism, so it’s no surprise that when women here the word “feminist” that’s what they immediately think of and they are opposed to that absurd way of thinking. So they speak out against it. Unfortunately Feminists like to pretend they are Feminists when they berate these women and so do people in the media.

Conservative = Westboro Baptist Church

Except, you know, for the part where that’s completely wrong and WBC has nothing to do with conservatism…hell WBC doesn’t even have anything to do with social conservatism (or Progressives for Jesus as I call them). I’m pretty sure Rick ‘Crazy Eyes and Sweater Vests’ Santorum would even dislike them. 

Did you know that Fred Phelps ran as a Democrat in every election he ever ran in for office?

I need help with some research. Can you give me any examples of how democrats/liberals hate minorities and try to keep them down?

Generally speaking it’s done “for their own good”. Things like welfare and LBJ’s “great society” did outrageous amounts of harm to minority communities. 

Liberals tend toward a “oh those poor minorities, they just can’t possible succeed without our help” mentality, which is both insulting to minorities and encourages victim-like behavior from them.

I just watched that video from UCLA. Ah, yes, Civil Disobediance. I'm civilly hitting you. I'm civilly shouting like a goddamn moron. I civilly have a woeful misunderstanding of the law. I civilly act like an entitled prick because my feelings were hurt so I chose to publicly assault those who hurt them. Disobedience? Yes, civil... not so much. I hate how that term gets tossed around as if it suddenly excuses all your actions, the best example being the Occupy movement clusterfuck.

Yeah, I don’t know where he got off claiming that was CIVIL anything.

Compare the death toll in Palestine to Israel. Can you honestly tell me that those figures show Israel 'defending itself'? Because all I can see from those figures is Israel mercilessly killing innocent children, who wanted nothing more but to live their life. Israel can stop the killings, yet they choose to go on. Don't you find it disgusting? The Palestinians are told to evacuate, but where can they go? They can actually go nowhere. Everywhere is closed off. Unless you know where they can go?

It’s funny how you think the number of casualties is how one judges who is defending themselves, because that’s not even close to reality. 

Someone did the math recently, based on Gaza reported numbers you are 28.48% more likely to be killed in Gaza by Israel’s retaliation if you are a member of Hamas than if you are a civilian. Given the percentage of Hamas to civilians, that number SHOULD be completely reversed if Israel was indiscriminately firing at civilian targets. 

But thank you for talking out of your ass about things you don’t understand and acting like Hamas hasn’t told the Gaza civilians to ignore warnings about bombings and use the “bomb shelters” they built to store bombs and protect members of Hamas, instead of civilians. Israel, despite what you appear to think, is not indiscriminately bombing and they generally do give forewarning. So yes, there are places to evacuate too if a certain building is being targeted. Israel isn’t bombing whole neighborhoods. 

The number of dead in Israel would likely be much higher if Israel was acting the same way as Hamas, refusing to protect their citizens and putting them in danger. 

And here’s another point, I don’t care how gradeschool it sounds either, HAMAS STARTED IT!

I feel terrible for any innocent person that dies on either side, but that does NOT give Hamas permission to continue bombing Israel and it does NOT make Israel the bad guy in this situation.

Not to mention that your face has nothing to do with this medium of communication. Shouldn't that anon be asking you to shut your fingers? Still nonsensical, but at least contextual...

Expecting rational context from idiots? Your optimism is refreshing, if misplaced.

Paris is being set on fire by the pro-palestinian groups, and I just read that the same kind of riots are starting to happen in Germany. The European countries continue to tolerant this horrible behavior. What do you think would happen if these same type of violent riots by the pro-palestinian groups started happening in America? Do you think we would tolerate it as well?

Well though they haven’t been quite as violent, protests like this HAVE been occurring in areas around the United States. 

When it comes to violent riots, what do you think our country’s track record is? Think about Occupy and how long that lasted, specifically Occupy Oakland which was highly violent. I’m not sure what we would do, but I think it greatly depends on where the protest is occurring. 

But this brings up and interesting thought. People keep telling Israelis to “leave” Israel. 

WHERE ARE THEY SUPPOSED TO GO? Even if they were willing to leave Israel (which they shouldn’t be and I’d never encourage them too). 

They are hated in Europe, to the extent that their are violent protests and all sorts of anti-Semitic comments made and crimes being committed. Jews are leaving Eastern and Western European countries in droves, heading toward Israel. Israel is their “safe space”, but even that isn’t really safe. It’s their last resort, they’re in a corner and it’s the last place they have that is theirs. I would be defending it to the death too.
