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.

I never get irritated with how much someone posts. Altho, sometimes it irritates me when someone I have known for 20 years and have tons of friends in common with and I am always saying sweet things to forgets to add me back as a friend on lj. wink,wink...nudge, nudge LOL

I guess being a sci fi and fantasy freak, I have seen so many images of women with guns that I don't even think anything of it. I mean, I prefer strong women who kick ass. Linda Hamilton was hot as Catherine in Beauty and The Beast, but in Terminater 2, with the kicking ass and shooting guns...Yea, that is WAY hotter.

Ack! Sorry. I didn't realize I hadn't added you. Just thought you weren't posting much. It is done.

Re: Linda Hamilton: Oh, gods, yes! Watching her in T2 just makes my legs go all wobbly!

Hugs to you.
