Basically Ami

1. Your skin may never be perfect, and that’s okay.

2. Life is too short not to have the underwear, the coffee, and the haircut you want.

3. Everyone (including your family, your coworkers, and your best friend) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other.

4. It’s okay to spend money on things that make you happy.

5. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re six, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life.

All of the evidence highlights the implicit bargain that is offered to citizens: pose no challenge and you have nothing to worry about. Mind your own business, and support or at least tolerate what we do, and you’ll be fine. Put differently, you must refrain from provoking the authority that wields surveillance powers if you wish to be deemed free of wrongdoing. This is a deal that invites passivity, obedience, and conformity. The safest course, the way to ensure being “left alone,” is to remain quiet, unthreatening, and compliant.

Hurr hurr hurrExcept everything about this is wrong.The easy ones:"Assault Weapon" is a bullshit term made up by the media to describe blah blah blah you’ve heard this before.
Guess what, neither party really gives a shit about either issue unless its going to cost/gain them voters. They don’t give a fuck about you, your uterus, your gun, nothing. They want your money and your vote, thats it.The slightly-more-difficult-one:Uteruses in no way shape or form have more regulation than guns. For example:
The National Firearms Act of 1934
Gun Control Act of 1968
Clinton Executive Orders
Lautenburg Act,
Hud/Smith&Wesson Agreement,
Brady Law,
School Safety and Law Enforcement Improvement Act
Obama Executive Orders
And those are just on the FEDERAL LEVEL
Local and State laws go into the THOUSANDS for what people living in certain areas can and can’t have and how many and yadda yadda yadda MOST of them for bullshit reasons because of appearances and not even an actual mechanical/physical feature.
So please, tell me again how your uterus is more regulated than a firearm. Last I checked you didn’t have to pass a background check to possess a uterus or if you’re a felon they don’t let you have it anymore or you have twins or triplets your uterus is now high-capacity and has to be limited or not even legal in some states. So really? You’re uterus is regulated?
Being a libertarian, I am in no way approving of any legislation on women’s bodies or firearms for that matter. I understand women and men alike are pissed, I am too. The government (again ALL PARTIES) have been stripping your rights away little by little and you still elect them. I wholeheartedly agree that any law regulating a human life is considerably more heinous than any gun law, but you don’t make any friends by making it a pissing contest.
Gun owners are probably one the friend you really want to make. Most gun owners actively support women in their right to carry as well as men. They’re gonna tell you to shoot a rapist, not pee your pants or spray him with mace. Not to mention a good amount of gun people go for the more libertarian end of the political spectrum.
Sorry, but this argument that uterus are more controlled than guns is crap and you should feel bad.
