Comments on: Sexist shirts from Marvel. http://www.skeptimusprime.net/2013/04/12/sexist-shirts-from-marvel/ One atheist's thoughts on politics, religion, and philsophy Sat, 28 Mar 2015 21:28:00 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2 By: Dylan Walker http://www.skeptimusprime.net/2013/04/12/sexist-shirts-from-marvel/#comment-160 Sun, 14 Apr 2013 07:36:29 +0000 http://www.skeptimusprime.net/2013/04/12/sexist-shirts-from-marvel/#comment-160 Fair enough, I’ll point out why I don’t really give much credence to the “bigger fish to fry” argument as a rule.

There are ALWAYS bigger fish to fry. If I point out sexism here for instance there are going to be worse cases of it elsewhere in the world, many Muslim nations for instance, and a lot of bloggers I’ve been following have been talking about the case of Amina, if you know anything about her story, it is clearly more serious than this shirt issue.

If you haven’t heard about her http://freethoughtblogs.com/maryamnamazie/2013/04/05/our-day-defend-amina/ talks about it. (Nudity)

If we say lets not talk about this problem here because there is a worse problem somewhere else nothing gets done in my opinion. Just because there is something worse elsewhere doesn’t mean it isn’t worth pointing out a problem that exists.

I’ve already looked at the story you brought up, and I may post about it at some point, I haven’t decided yet. Spent the evening watching Game of Thrones with my fiance so I haven’t been writing anything this evening.

I didn’t say the shirts were cool per se …
I’m just making an observation based on anecdotal evidence I saw …

it’s true it’s not fair to criticize someone based on what they don’t feature …
I’m just saying that it is a trend I noticed, that is all.

Just pointing out there are bigger fish to fry … and yes, I did also hope to draw some more attention to this story. Not sure who has and who hasn’t seen it …

sorry, I’m tired, random thoughts, not entirely coherent … need sleep I do!

ps – our show should be on the website before tomorrow night at midnight …

You do understand that just because one criticizes one thing does not imply they approve of all the things they didn’t happen to blog about at the same time right?

I’m sorry that I don’t blog about the things you approve of.

Further, no one is on the fence about murder, we all agree that it’s wrong. I wrote an article about something where I might actually change someone’s mind about something. I don’t blog to be a news outlet, but to offer opinions.

Meanwhile, mass murder is overlooked http://www.slate.com/blogs/weigel/2013/04/12/kermit_gosnell_the_alleged_mass_murderer_and_the_bored_media.html

Which story deserves more attention? More outrage? More coverage? Which one is more important?

Worldview guides priorities.
