Women and guns

Also, it's astounding to me how hung up and prudish lots of people are. There's this MeFi thread about a site that chronicles images of women with guns. Neat! I mean, I like looking at women, and I particularly like images of especially tough, empowered women.

Guns = power, of a sort. I don't particularly want to see images of violence, but then the mere presence of a firearm is not equivalent to violence, is it? I can rip a page out of this book about mutual funds I've got right here, and use it to slit someone's throat. But I'm not going to. I mean, a picture of a woman holding a gun could be emblematic of something as wholesome as a mother protecting her child. Yet all these otherwise rational MeFites are insisting that it's ugly and violent and awful. Are these same folks as alarmed by pictures of men with guns?

Seriously. I wish people would lighten up.

Uh. Yeah.

How many times can I post today before ya'll get irritated with me?

OK, attention everyone! If the most committed pacifist I know likes pictures like this, then we are OK. Seriously.

Everybody knows I'm not violent. I'm a vegetarian, for cryin' out loud. I wouldn't aim a gun at a snail. But women with guns are hot. Empirically. End of discussion :)

i'm not actually sure i'm a pacifist. (i'm not sure i'm not, eiether). i just defend them rhetorically 'cause i get annoyed when they're misrepresented. :)

but yes, women with guns are hot. swords are even better . . .
