Sorry for the title!


Anyhow, there's a petition going on atm that wants to ban the bible from being sold due to it being sexist towards woman.



Maybe I should give the full story, so what happened was that a few weeks ago a group got GTAV banned from 2 massive store chains in Australia due to a petition claiming it being sexist and against woman. So now a bunch of people want to get other stuff banned from those store chains due to them removing one thing that they just so happened to like for similar reasons as GTAV was banned for.

The "Bible" has been out for 2014 years, maybe even longer, and now feminazi's are angry?

If I could swear up a storm, I will.

I'm Catholic, but ban it if you all wanna.

You don't need a book to tell you how to live.

Even as an atheist this is stupid as fuck.

The feminazis are a joke.

I wonder what they will try and ban next.

Why is Christianity always bashed by liberals? What about Islam? Their book is pretty crazy too.
I suggest we ban all books out of respect for illiterate people. We should be considerate about their feelings.

I hope people realize this is a joke to show how stupid Target Australia's decision over GTA V was.

Atheist here, but man, the bible is a pretty big deal. Something that has been around that long, even though there's all sorts of messed up stuff in it, sexism is the tip of the iceberg, I really don't see it disappearing now, least of all from a petition. If anything it'll cause a bit of a rile up between believers and non-believers and that'll be it. This is literally going to make people angry only for things to go back to how they were.

I'm normally not one to defend radical "feminism", but I'm going to play devil's advocate here (which is appropriate, given the subject matter).

From what I gather, it seems less like "feminazis" raging, and more like a tongue-in-cheek protest against feminazis.

Rather, it's saying "Well, you wanted GTAV banned on account of misogyny, but why not all this OTHER stuff that's misogynistic, like say, the Bible?" It's basically calling them out for being selective and simply going after the easiest target (the ever-controversial GTA games) and not going all the way with their so-called protest.

At least, that's what I got from that.

I think that not many people are getting that this isn't supposed to be taken seriously. Instead, it's about showing the rampant hipocracy inherent to censorship.

not the internet waging a war against feminists. feel like feminism is the new PETA. I remember the time when they tried to ban Pokémon for animal cruelty...
