❝❝Perhaps we could just say stuff happens and individuals need to be held responsible.
The trends argument is the same justification that the RadFems use against males in general. You can pick and choose bad examples and ignore the good examples. That way, you never need to talk about individuals, it's about trends and statistics and who is the greater "danger to the community."
Why is it better when conservatives use that justification against whatever Label X is this week?
Until and unless you can show that all of Label X engages in Action Y AND no one who is Not Label X engages in Action Y, the argument falls down. Which means maybe, just maybe we should look at something other than the label.❞❞
