Edited: To honor all new visitors from the Captain Moron site I have created a special post just for you.
Due to an almost 200% price-hike in tuition for me next year there is a good chance I’ll be forced to drop out of college. That’s another way to control women, make sure they got less and less money. Robbing people of a chance to get an education and become self-sufficient will keep the Patriarchy as firmly in place as ever, so I figured I might as way catch up on my blogging, since I have been neglecting my blog for the past two years in favor of my probably soon to be failed attempt at getting a degree.
In this post I want to discuss Pirate Bay. Pirate Bay, for those of you unfamiliar with the phenomenon of torrenting, offers torrent files that can be opened in a peer-to-peer downloading program. In short, you are downloading stuff from a whole bunch of users who are all connected via the .torrent file. These files can be legal, if you have bought a license to what your are downloading or if the media you download is freeware. However, it is no secret that what most people download is not the stuff they bought. Often this is thought off in terms of “stealing”, though the downloading is not the illegal part in many cases, but allowing people to download is. Sounds familiar? Legislation to “prevent” rape often also places blame with the wrong person.
In my country several internet service providers (ISP’s) are now forced to block access to the website Pirate Bay, who offers these torrent files. You can’t actually download any media (pirated or otherwise) from this website or it’s servers, however the law enforcers the world over are hunting the creators of this websites like crazy. One of the co-founders of the site has been convicted to a year incarceration and a fine of 1.1 million Dollar (I assume that means US Dollar, but the source was unclear).
Yet, the conviction for rape and assault of women remains less than 1% the world over. Perpetrators can attack and rape women to their hearts’ contend. The damage they do lasts a lifetime and is way more than just lost income. Yet, when the big-ass media corporations hoot and holler about lost revenue every government jumps to their feet with their pitch-forks and torches to assist those poor, poor media moguls who are having trouble shoving their useless, mediocre, misogynist, male-centric media down all our throats. Here’s a newsflash for you assholes: This feminist doesn’t want your crappy media, even if you paid me to consume it.
Hypocritically they claim the illegal downloading hurts artists and performers, but without such downloads being available would the big suits pay them even so much as one cent more? Would they? Would they give more opportunities to female actors and directors to make something other than misogynist crap? I highly doubt it, but there you have it. This is what the “crime-fighting-heroes” of the patriarchy spend most of their time doing; going after people who could, maybe, potentially hurt their control over the world. We can’t have any of that now can we. Women being hurt? Who cares? Women dying and getting murdered and raped? Small price to pay for “refocusing legal priorities”.
