This is sort of a nonquestion, in that you obviously have some kind of MRA agenda you’re trying to pursue and want to rope me into it by asking ridiculous and nonsensical questions.

Of course I have many posts on Medium where I am not discussing women and children as “a special class” (whatever that means.) But for this particular set of posts, I am concerned with what is happening to individuals in this “special class” and I make no apologies for that.

If these individuals in this “special class” are being killed by illegal and unnecessary gun violence above and beyond those not in the “special class,” then this clearly needs to be addressed. Stop trying to dilute, deflect, suppress, ignore or spin the issue into something less despicable than it is. I might add that the law, breaks people down into, what are called “protected classes” — and gender is one of the “protected classes.”

All that means is if something is happening to you, because of your gender, then you likely have standing to file certain kinds of law suits, in certain conditions, under certain laws, or receive certain kinds or protection under the law. When it comes to gun violence the Violence Against Women Act, places women in such a protected class. People who have worked on that legislation recently have tried to expand it, so that individuals convicted of domestic violence are unable to gain access to guns. That just happened- I believe last year, and was just revoked, by the Trump Administration, I believe last month. But my point is, the law places certain groups of people into certain protected classes, on all kinds of bases: race, color, religion, veteran status, national origin, genetic disposition, gender, disability, tribal nation…I could go on. My point is, everyone gets placed in protected classes under the law, one way or another. Which is why I find your questions about “special classes” a bit odd.

It is a travesty for a husband to kill his wife in front of his children (and I actually know people to whom this has actually happened.) It is even worse for these children to be killed as well. And yet it happens, a lot. At least once a day - and sure you can make the argument that 365 lives are insignificant in the larger scheme of things, but if I were you, I’d think long and hard about what exactly I was defending. I really think this is a ridiculous argument to be having- even for the sake of argument. It’s a ridiculous argument to have and it’s even more ridiculous- quite honestly just insane and evil- to harass someone for bringing this information to light and trying to do something to change it.
