you cannot support trans gals and be against shoplifting.

the anti-shoplifting fandom is fundamentally transmisogynistic.

the withholding of those sorts of essential goods needed for survival (food, water, clothing, cosmetics, etc) is an act of violence that kills trans gals.

um.

um...

Okay what percentage of the shoplifting fandumb are trans to begin with?  Because even if I decide to make an exception for a poor trans person, are you personally trans?  Cause if not you are still an asshole.

Emphasis on the word poor.

Topic is started with the claim that feminism "destroys nations" and after a long back and forth on who has the burden of proof we finally get this:

Quote
Feminism is largely responsible for the critically low native birth rates in Western countries. While this doesn't literally "kill you", it does mean that you have a lowered probability of being born in the first place. Also from a geopolitical perspective, it is very dangerous to see birth rates much higher in one part of the world than another. This is a common cause of invasions and civilizational upheaval because there aren't enough men around to defend their country.

We are shamed into not viewing alien nations as the threats they are to our welfare and way of life. This isn't just stupid, it is extremely dangerous - akin to embracing a poisonous snake because you've been taught it's wrong to turn away any creature.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Is he afraid that a billion Indians or Chinese are going to invade his country, a la the Mongol Horde?

I sympathize completely. However, to use against us. Let me ask you a troll. On the one who pulled it. But here's the question: where do I think it might as well have stepped out of all people would cling to a layman.

I mean I can personally understand stealing food and supplies if you're poor.

Sure, if you've got no other choice, then I can understand it. But church and the rest of these fuckends are saying that shoplifting is actually Totally Virtuous and Sticking It To The Man and doesn't actually hurt retail workers (even when retail workers come out with personal accounts of being punished because of shoplifting) and also:

Quote
The villain in this scenario, as should be obvious, is not the shoplifters but the corporations. Like, they’re the ones that price things so as to be unattainable through legal means, and they’re the ones that punish their workers for people shoplifting.

YOU'RE STILL GIVING THEM EXCUSES TO, FUCKCHEESES.

Private property is theft.

okay brb breaking into your house and taking all of your shit since private property is theft

“But shoplifting is real!” Nope. They made it up. The truth hurts.

Mainly he's scared of Muslims. ...Well he is scared of anyone who isn't white-heterosexual-Christian, but mainly complains Muslims and feminists. ...And blacks, can't forget them when you complain about "inferior races."

Hey here's an idea.  How about instead of shoplifting, you get involved in activist groups and fight for a higher minimum wage, stronger unions, a better welfare state and other things that would give you the satisfaction of sticking it to the man but actually help poor people?  Oh but that would require actual work so I guess it's too much to ask.

That would require them to think of retail workers as people. So that's obviously impossible.

Or they have the same attitude towards the retail workers as some anarchists have towards the police: since they are working for the oppressor they deserve whatever harm they get. At least the police are trained to defend themselves and aren't as helpless as the retail wage slaves.

"oh you want to survive in this capitalist society that we're not actually working towards dissolving? well fuck you for not wanting you and your children to slowly starve"

EDIT:

Quote
“but shoplifting hurts retail workers!” retail workers objectively shoplift more than anybody else.

she bases this on one person's personal account, by the way

Yeah, apparently there's a sizeable "lifting" community on tumblr (and yeah, they did give themselves a sanitized name), and a lot of them are financially stable and aren't exactly poor.  Hell, there were two "lifters" who shoplifted a fucking kitten from a shelter, then proceeded to go to Petsmart and shoplift $300 worth of pet supplies.

If you want an extra treat, read the notes at the bottom and see all the "lifters" ass patting each other over this.

That is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen, after the pro-anorexia and delusional misandrist posts.

I had no idea obeying the law is a "fandom."
Quote from: Jordan Duram
It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Quote from: Supreme Court of Canada
Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.
