Here is an example of what your definition means. A married person can "Imagine" how a newly wed couple feels.vi·car·i·ous
So yes I can empathizes with a pregnant woman and a rape victim.
- experienced in the imagination through the feelings or actions of another person.
Bad logic all around....SMHIf you believe that because the unborn child is dependent on the mother for its survival, that gives her power over its Right To life....Then you must also agree with
1.Honor Killings....daughters are dependent on their fathers.
2.Woman should be traded as Goods....In many societies across the world woman are almost totally dependent on their menfolk as a result men used to trade then as goods.
No....I have not heard you express an opinion butt you have certainly posted a lot.......you have not heard me express any opinion on abortion. i have none.
No a Married person would have had a "DIRECT" or "FIRSTHAND" experience of what it is to be a Newly Wed not a Vicarious one....Here is an example of what your definition means. A married person can "Imagine" how a newly wed couple feels.
But a Man that has not been raped, and cannot get pregnant have no way of fully knowing what a woman feels when it happens to her.
Here is the thing. If I was wrong, I know the sistas on this board would tell me I was wrong.
Now take notes of the red wording and use them to understand the difference.
obtained or undergone at second hand through sympathetic participation in another's experiences
suffered, undergone, or done as the substitute for another.
Really now.....Go ahead.Bad logic all around....SMH
So I will show you the flaw in it.
Health reasons aside....sick cows equate to sick meat.I like eating stake, but I don't think sick and maimed cows should be dragged to the slaughter. I think they should be put down in a humane way.
You see, a person can be a proponent of one thing, but not another.
Again you have failed to prove your pointQ.E.D.........quod erat demonstrandum.
I proved my point long ago, but I'll be more direct this time.Again you have failed to prove your point
You think you have proved it but in reality you have not.I proved my point long ago, but I'll be more direct this time.
Do you worry about being raped while walking at night, to your car, wearing a certain outfit, or waiting on the bus? Do you know how it feels to be raped, and become pregnant because of it?
If the answer is no, then I have proved that you can't fully empathize with a woman that has been raped and became pregnant because of it. You can't fully empathize with a woman that has fears and concerns that men don't have.
Being raped is the last thing on my mind when I'm out at night, or walking to my truck in a parking garage, etc...
Enki says:-Yes, it does give me the power of life and death over them. A baby that can't fend for it's self will die if no one fed it.
Frankster says :- So when some one is incapacitated by a automobile accident should we leave then to die on the road side because the are now incapable of fending for them selves?
