Jane Velez-Mitchell Lives in a Fantasy Land
Jane is on a feminist truthiness soap box yet again. She believes that there is a war only on women in this country because women are being killed in increasing numbers and mostly by men (NOT TRUE, the crime of murder, on both men and women in the United States is on a dramatic decline as stated by many sources.) She is tired of the mantra that women have to change their behavior to be safe or they might fall victim of a violent crime, rather we have to change the behavior of these criminals. This is, always has been, and always will be a recipe for disaster.
What is it about women in general who cannot accept the fact that they nor anyone else can change the behavior of others? They only can change the behavior of themselves. The generality is true that many women marry a man expecting him to change; women have to learn to accept that the only person’s behavior that they can expect to change is their own. No one ever said that changing your behavior would make you safe, just safer; it is by the way applied to both sexes. You cannot expect 6 billion other people to be responsible for your safety, only you can do that for yourself.
This has been argued ad nauseum and I cannot see this assertion ever being wrong. If Mitchell wants to see a real war against anyone it is against men both in sexist legislation, these false misandric assertions, and the number of murders of men vs. women (78.0% vs. 21.7% respectively 2008 USDOJ Facts.) Mitchell’s whole basis of her assertion is her ad hoc use of the Annie Le murder, a student from Yale. The police have not yet made an arrest but she and others are asserting that it is a man. Sure it could be but like one of my other favorite people, Nancy Grace I would love to see Jane Velez-Mitchell fall flat on her face because the killer turns out to be a woman. Her accusation is premature and does not mention that fact.
She and the media also assert that the building Annie Le was in is only accessible by students and staff, obviously not. Have the people who are in the media never been to college? We all know that a statement like that is simply not true. Let’s face it kids will be kids and they do not take security seriously, they will tape, or wedge the door open, they will also enter the building and hold the door for someone behind them and let friends and acquaintances in that are not from the campus. This by the very nature means that anyone, not just students and staff can enter that building. This is life, yet Mitchell and her syncophants keep insisting that only a few students and staff could enter the building so there should be no problem identifying the killer. I do not think these women have ever lived in the real world.
I am so disappointed in the media lately, there is no longer INVESTIGATIVE reporting just reporting without any independent thought.
Jane Velez-Mitchell is going to give her feminist misandric view of this need to make the safety of women in this country the #1 priority tonight Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 7PM.
