Fw: Why Men Prefer Guns Over Women

The Top Ten Reasons
Men Prefer Guns Over Women

#10. You can trade an old 44 for a new 22.

#9. You can keep one gun at home and have another for when you're on the road.

#8. If you admire a friend's gun and tell him so, he will probably let you try it out a few times.

#7. Your primary gun doesn't mind if you keep another gun for a backup.

#6. Your gun will stay with you even if you run out of ammo.

#5. A gun doesn't take up a lot of closet space.

#4. Guns function normally every day of the month.

#3. A gun doesn't ask , "Do these new grips make me look fat?"

#2. A gun doesn't mind if you go to sleep after you use it.

And the number one reason a gun is favored over a woman....

I like how this site points out the prejudices of one group of people (the ones who forward these emails) by being prejudiced against other groups (all Republicans, "Red America", Etc.). At least you're consistent...or not.

Ah, the old "be tolerant of my intolerance!" argument. It makes less sense every time I hear it...

Hi, troll! Are you the one with 42 PhDs?

@ con anon

Pointing out prejudice isn't, in itself, prejudice.

But hooray for you for defending lynching, murder,
spying, and indiscriminate slaughter.

Oh, how the SS would have loved you.

Boo Hoo Hoo for all the poor conservatives!

Newsflash troll: this site doesn't do anything except provide a place to gather and look at the work of Wingnuts.

Conservatives write these emails, rants and "jokes".

Conservative think they are clever, witty, insightful, factual or inspiring.

Conservatives forward them for years on end, even after they have been disproven.

Worst of all, conservatives are proud of this!

All this blog does is hold up a mirror. So please spare us the outrage and fake tears.

I actually chucked at this one the first time I read it a while back, though it really isn't one of those things that stays funny after the 500th time you've read it. I don't find it the least bit sexist, either. I'm just glad they actually did something funny, for once. Folks on the right and left do jokes about their husbands and wives. I suppose the only real "right wing" thing about this one is the gun reference.

>>I don't find it the least bit sexist, either.

Not sexist at all, just a bunch of jokes about how women expire at 30, are shallow and needy, ought to be traded for sex among friends, can't "function normally" during our periods, and it'd be better if we never talked. AMIRITE?

...which is different from any other joke told by almost every single male comedian ever, how exactly? And for that matter... Is different from ever single joke told by almost every single female comedian about men, how exactly? Please give me one example of any comedian who never told a joke about the opposite sex.

The right wing has legitimate things for us to gripe about. Let's not make ourselves look more like them by grasping at straws, people. Griping about things like this makes it look like they could advocate for world peace and we'd find an issue with it.

You make a point about comedians making jokes about the opposite sex. I guess it's just more distasteful to me personally to see women compared negatively to guns. There's just something, uh, I dunno... gross about it in a way more offensive than other types of opposite sex jokes I hear on the comedy channel.

Given the overall context of how wingers shriek out racist & sexist stuff pretty consistently (yes, I'm looking at you, troll), it just puts this into an even more disgusting category.

Just saying....

almoderate said...

Granted, you may have a point with the racist/sexist thing, but whoever said that guns and/or opposite sex jokes was exclusive to the far right? I mean, I frequent a site called "The Gun Toting Liberal". Granted, I'm not far left, but I see no reason why laughing at wingnuts must be exclusive to the far right.

Now, if you think the jokes are "gross" when comparing a gun to a woman, just consider how gross they'd be if you flipped those jokes around and compared a gun to a man. I mean, considering the general shape of a gun... I want to say that I have seen something similar to that effect where men were compared to a Mr. Potato Head or something like that.

Either way, I'm sure we can always find something to gripe about if we look hard enough. Let's not be like that. Leave that to the wingnuts.

almoderate said...

should have read "exclusive to the far left"

Nicole Anell said...

almoderate, I never said this kind of humor is *exclusive* to the right, there is certainly a large share of sexist liberals. By definition, though, treating women as a weaker class is anti-progressive.

And since when has "well, lots of people do it!" been an excuse, exactly? There are plenty of comedians out there who *don't* base their entire act on boring, dated, misogynist jokes that have been told a hundred times.
