Preying On Teeenage Girls: Reddit's ViolentAcrez, DFW Texas Resident Michael Brutsch

“The Reddit case is another one of how Internet anonymity and free speech are often used to legitimise violence and the objectification of the women”

Two years ago, Amazon.com was threatened with a boycott since it was allowing the sale of a self-published KINDLE book promoting pedophilia: see Has Amazon.com Lost Its Mind:the Pedophiles Guide and A Hellfire sermon inspired by Amazon.com

And today, I turn your attention to the social news site, Reddit.com. Reddit allowed a troll with a history of racist and misogynist flames online to be a moderator. But what is worse is that he (yes, it’s been confirmed that this ViolentAcrez is a he) has posted pictures of teenage daughters and sisters. Reddit claims it is free speech, and free expression, but when your free speech and expression harms someone else, it is no longer free speech. As the Supreme Court has ruled, yelling fire in a theater is not free speech, and since pedophilia and ephebophilia are illegal in the United States, Reddit needs to start censoring itself or face possible legal action from angry mothers and fathers. For those familiar with pop culture, this situation has been compared to the sixth season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, where the Trio, three misogynist geeks go from a comical bunch of goof-offs to raping and then murdering one of their co-horts victims: see Gawker’s Violentacrez Expose And How ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ Predicted Geek Misogyny at Think Progress.

Joel is right, we can’t boycott Reddit, but we can put pressure on them to make necessary changes. I know this post will probably be banned by Reddit but when it comes to the lives of children, and speaking up for the oppressed, I don’t think Christians have a choice in the matter. Like any typical corporation that’s come under fire, Reddit is trying to get some good Public Relations on its side, but it’s a little to late. As for Michael Brutsch, I can only pray for your soul, and hope you repent.

Does Abortion Lead to Sex Trafficking and Crime in General?

This, from a piece that ran on Freakanomics radio, Via NPR today:

Hvistendahl: In some countries where sex selection has taken off, people see this machine as really a way to ensure them a boy.

Since the introduction of the ultrasound in Asia, in the early 1980s, it’s often been used to determine the gender of a fetus — and, if it’s female — have an abortion. In a part of the world with big populations, these sex selection abortions have had a big, unintended consequence.

Hvistendahl: I mean there are over 160 million females missing from the population in Asia, and to put that in perspective, it’s more than the entire female population of the United States.

So, what happens in a world with too many men? For starters, there’s more sex-trafficking, more AIDS, and a higher crime rate. In fact, if you want to know the crime rate in a given part of India, one surefire indicator is the gender ratio. The more men, the more crime.

So if I am understanding this correctly, for those countries that take abortion to the next logical conclusion, in which potential parents choose which traits they want, and abort the fetuses with traits they don’t, crime goes way up because men are more desirable than women for most in this situation. This poses an interesting line of questioning for me. It is no secret that by-and-large (still a gross oversimplification), women’s groups and LGBTQ groups support abortion (or in nicer terms “a woman’s right to choose”. So if the entire world has access to ever-increasing technology that allows potential parents to easily and accurately identify which children will be genetically gay or lesbian or women, it stands to reason, given the data thus far, that most of the world will choose to have more straight boys. Will these groups continue to support a woman’s right to choose when it endangers the very survival of their type?

Also, the piece seems to indicate that when there are too many men and not enough women, things go bad. So there it is. From a feminist and humanist perspective, I have no choice but to condemn abortions for the greater good of women and LGBTQ persons who may not have been born yet.
