Voting Rights


A Social Justice website has a post up pondering on whether men should be allowed to vote.

However one can’t be sure if withdrawing the white man’s vote could be considered a “wrong”. Furthermore, the point here that has to be made is that banning white men from voting temporarily will help them understand  systemic injustice and help them become better, more empathetic allies to the social justice cause.

None of the men pictured below were available for comment.

  1. Well, reading the article and it having so many things wrong, this is her profile:

    Malia Rolt
    MALIA ROLT

    A 16 year old Asian teenager who is passionate about social justice and politics. A hardcore feminist, #BLM supporter and LGBTQ+ rights advocate. I also love chocolate, Ariana Grande and cats.

  2. Something that seems to ignored in all these ruminations, besides why there is ‘rule of law’, is who or how do you define race? Their own world view rests on the ability to claim to be anything they want to be. So more will to owner nonsense.

  3. Btw, the people in that picture are all WHITE MEN, so their opinions don’t count! EVAH!!!!!

    I just fired an HR drone the other day for saying something discounting a group on the basis of gender, age, and race (“old black women”, in this case), so I’m a bit touchy on this subject at the moment.

    On the flip side, an object lesson for the rest of HR, and my other employees, is an excellent thing. 😉

    • That is pretty creepy. I did find that there are plenty of other “ghost” stations out there transmitting equally creepy tones and such.

    • Fairly certain it’s not by a teen
      Already mentioned, but bears repeating:
      Maila Rolt = I Am A Troll

      Easy to miss, as we tend to respond to the content of arguments presented rather than look for stupid ad-hominems against the author first, (like assuming you’re going to win a court case just because you called the other guy “The world’s worst lawyer”)

      The ad-hom comes later, as merited by the idiocy of the arguments attempted.

  4. The people who should have the right to vote are exactly the people who produce some good or service and stand to lose some or all of it though taxation or regulation. Besides that you can include more, but you best not include less.

    Social justice restricting a group’s rights doesn’t turn them into allies who, having walked a mile in your shoes, suddenly see the light. It just turns them increasingly hostile. A person who couldn’t foresee that lacks empathy and should not be complaining about other people’s.

  5. HuffPoo South Africa ran a similar piece a while back, and it turned out to be professional trolling. People got a real kick out of the magazine editors trying to support it when the pushback first started.

  6. A fair number of the young men in that LSM were too young to vote, as many states and a 21-yo voting age.
