[Hot take on women's suffrage I heard on YouTube] "... I think Rights [should] come w/ responsibilities. One of the reasons that men had the right to vote was because they were subject to the draft and they still are ..." Thoughts? Counterarguments?
I had some thoughts, but they fell out after watching some of the video because it's so not a debate. You can't engage with that, it's not an argument. That video is like a uniquely boring nightmare, though. Everyone in it has a trust fund. Yeah she seems to think women only took care of children during the draft. And then all the girls rate themselves? it's like a parody of douchebaggery. I stopped watching right after that. I live so far away from this kind of entertainment, it's sort of a culture shock that people will watch this and be into it. But they are, the comments are so serious.
Most rights come with responsibilities. To claim that women should not have the right to vote due to them being not responsible or intelligent enough is plain stupid. In each queue in front of the check out at a supermarket you'll find people of any gender you very likely would not like to have a vote due to open visibility of stupidity. So that argument is void.
"Responsibilities" in his take is code for "being forced by the state to do stuff." I don't think rights should necessarily come with responsibilities, let alone a responsibility to go kill people (and get death, dismemberment, and/or PTSD), unless having that right logically implies some kind of responsibility (for example, the right to universal healthcare requires everyone pay taxes).
And sure, you could draw some logical link between the draft and the right to vote (e.g. "you're not guaranteed any rights if some other country takes over yours"), but still, women should have the right to vote because they, too, live [...]
Grrrrr. I watched about five minutes of the video. My first thought was: why is he wearing shades inside? My second thought was: why does he have a dummy with blue hair sitting next to him? My third thought was: why is he still wearing shades inside? My fourth was: why is he the only male in a tableful of young women? Is he THE MAN™️ that these nubile young women are supposed to look up to/learn from/be subordinate to? Does he need to be surrounded by adoring young flesh to feel good about himself? Because, let’s face it, his argument is shite. His command of any kind of fact to back up his shite argument is even more [...]
