Use Them Logics

So, I was blessed enough to be homeschooled by a mom that cared about my education. She made sure I had all my basics down and added in specialty classes to shape me into a functioning member of society.

I spent an entire semester studying logic.

Thank the Good Lord.

It is honestly the class I think I am most thankful for.

I can debate an issue clearly, without resorting to name-calling, emotions, character-attacks, and logical fallacies that make my position less plausible.

My big question is, why don’t all the other parents care?! I have gotten into many many discussions/arguments where my ‘opponent’ has completely denied the existence of logic.

If you’ll excuse the language I have been called a dumbass more times than I can count without any proof of what I’m being so dumb about!

Dear Parents,

Please teach your child to come up with valid points. Teach to avoid the petty and childish character-attacks in order to win arguments. Teach your kids how to research, cross-reference. Teach them to discuss controversial topics civilly. Teach them to be respectful even when someone disagrees.

Logical people do not riot in the streets and they don’t think name calling wins an argument.

-A Concerned Young Woman

I have had many conversations with people my age where their references are social media, fake news sources, or the first statistic they find in Google search. They don’t know how to effectively stand up for their beliefs. They contradict themselves without even realizing it.

Because, I honestly don’t care if you agree with me or not. But if you disagree by posting a comment full of expletives, claiming I know nothing because I’m hateful, judgmental, racist, without any proof or any reason for you to think that, I can’t take you seriously.

I will make sure my children study logic and debate. I want them to be prepared for the real world. I hope you do the same.

And if you never had a chance to study logic and debate in school, it’s never too late to learn! They are easy concepts that simply take practice. You can google logical fallacies and learn them in a day. You don’t want to be THAT person when trying to prove your point.

President Trump

We have a new president!! As weird as it is to write “President Trump” I am happy that the Obamas are out of the White House. It was time for change and now that change is upon us.

In the four days since he became President, Trump has actually done a surprising amount of work. He already defunded Planned Parenthood!!!!! That is such a victory for Bible-believing Christians everywhere.

However, with President Trump’s inauguration came a resurgence of American stupidity. There are riots, women marching around in vagina costumes, protests calling for impeachment, and hatred across the nation.

I would like to get one thing straight. While I support Trump for President I do not condone his past actions. I don’t like his sexist comments or the fact that he cheated on spouses any more than anyone else. However, that doesn’t mean he’s a terrible President. He is flawed like the rest of us, like every President before him. At least his flaws are out in the open now, not released halfway through presidency. We as a nation voted him in already knowing these facts.

Issue 1: Rioting

The American People have the right to peaceful protests. Protests are a way for us to let those in power know we are unhappy. Protests do not include weapons, beating people, or destruction of property.

Rioting is a way to show those in power that you are a whiny child that didn’t get their way. Newsflash: destroying private property doesn’t hurt the government, it hurts the person whose property you destroyed.

The riots serve no purpose except to show the Republicans that Democrats need to chill out, especially the liberals.

Yes, I’m aware that there were protests after Obama was elected. Some were hateful and rude and obviously those aren’t okay. However, there were no week-long riots. There were no freeways blocked.

This is unacceptable behavior. The rest of the world is laughing at the American liberals.

Issue 2: The women

LADIES. TRUMP HAS NOT TAKEN ANY OF YOUR RIGHTS AWAY

HE DOES NOT PLAN TO.

NO ONE WANTS TO TAKE YOUR RIGHTS AWAY.

You already have all the rights a man does.

Wage gap? I wrote a post explaining the myth. Look here.

I also hear women crying about not getting paid maternity leave. You’re not working, you can’t expect most jobs to pay you to stay home with your newborn for months. It’s not discrimination, it’s business. And men don’t get fraternal leave of any sort, even if his wife is sick or he suddenly finds himself a single father.

Women demand to feel safe walking alone at night. As much as it sucks, that’s not something any one person can change. Rape exists and the people that rape other people live below the law. They don’t care how much women work to “de-sexualize the body”. Which, by the way, is stupid. I like feeling sexy. I like feeling beautiful and attractive. Feminists are so confused because they spout that men sexualize us too much then turn around and order men to find every body type desirable. Make up your mind.

Also, rape does not only happen to women. Same case with domestic and sexual abuse. It happens to both genders. But feminists only fight for women. This movement is NOT ABOUT EQUALITY.

If you are reading this thinking ‘But I’m a feminist and all I want is equality’, then congratulations, you have it. You shouldn’t call yourself a feminist anymore, you’re just a decent person. The feminist movement is no longer about equality. They want things that men don’t need, don’t have, don’t get. It’s now about women getting everything they want and being treated special.

It truly sickens me.

All in all, I think we need to give Trump a chance before deciding whether or not he’s a good president. It’s the same fairness and decency that was expected to be shown to every president before him. It’s time to grow up and look forward.

And pray for our new president. He has a big mess to clean up and a lot of hatred and pressure against him.

I hope my fellow women, and the men who support feminism, realize how unreasonable they are being. You are hurting your entire generation with the illogical and unfounded misandry that you are spreading.
