OUT: Mansplaining IN: Gunsplaining

Feminists now pushing gun control.

The left comes up with this stuff faster than anyone can keep up with them. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the left-wing Cosmopolitan Magazine is pushing an anti-gun narrative under the heading of gunsplaining:

Why You Should Never Date a “Gunsplainer”

We’ve all met mansplainers, but have you ever met a similarly dreadful gunsplainer? He’s the type of guy who will attempt to hit on you by calling you “schnookums” and, like the mansplainer, he will condescend to you about why you’re safer in a world where guns are easier to buy than Sudafed, or how a good guy with a gun is the best antidote to a bad guy with a gun.

He may echo the words of National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, who said in 2013, “The one thing a violent rapist deserves to face is a good woman with a gun.”

Here’s another example:

It’s Time to Talk About What Guns Have to Do With Dating

“So can we talk about your guns?”

You’ve watched pundits and politicos debate the issue. Maybe you’ve joined in the hashtag chorus, whether #NotOneMore or #ProGun. But in order to truly save lives, the conversation has to get intimate. “We need to start talking about gun safety in our relationships — now,” says Rob Valente, vice president of policy for the National Domestic Violence Hotline.

This could have something to do with the fact that Cosmo’s editor Joanna Coles, who just happens to be pals with a certain former NYC mayor now contemplating a presidential bid.

Matt Philbin reports at News Busters:

Cosmo: Pro-Gun Arguments Are Just ‘Gunsplaining’

Cosmo likes it’s readers slutty and defenseless. The same publication that features “13 Naughty Sex Games You Need to Try” and “Lost Your Valentine’s Day Underwear? Uber will Deliver a Fresh Pair” is advising women to fear men who own guns, while ignoring women’s ability to arm themselves.

Over the course of three separate articles, the magazine incapable of embarrassment treats the Second Amendment like an embarrassing personal issue and veers into PC buzzword land. A “gunsplainer,” as defined by Cosmo, is, “Someone (usually, although not always, a guy) who buys into myths propagated by the gun lobby. A small-but extreme-subset of gun owners that dominates conversations on gun violence.”

Thank goodness the sophisticates at Cosmo are immune to gun lobby myths. They might contradict the myths they buy from Michael Bloomberg and his Everytown gun-grabbing organization. Cosmo Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles, coincidentally, is chummy with the ban-happy former NYC mayor, and recently fielded a question from CBS This Morning on his presidential ambitions.

Here’s Coles on CBS This Morning:

Does anyone take these people seriously?

Why you should never date a Cosmo reader. They read Cosmo.

“Does anyone take these people seriously?”

Wul, yah. The people who PAY for Cosmo, certainly. And their ilk.

Happily, they are NOT-breeding themselves out of existence. They are a non-viable population of idiots.

Nature will NOT be mocked.

Heh…!!!

    Over the years, I knew many young women who read Cosmo regularly. Never met one who took it seriously – even by the mid-’70s, their “10 Ways to Please Your Man” articles were considered a joke by their readers.

    Women’s magazines in general have struggled to stay in business. Some go for niche markets like healthy cooking, others have gone full feminist nutbar. Few of any kind will survive for long in dead tree editions, much like other genre.

    I’m fully convinced most people buy Cosmo ironically. In college, my teammates and I on the Men’s Swim team would buy copies during Thanksgiving and Christmas training to read during downtime with the goal being to find the funniest section in that month’s issue. I’ve also never met a women who buys that magazine legitimately.

“So can we talk about your guns?”

Absolutely! You show me yours first…

Then you can see mine…

An employee of one of my clients is a woman in her early 20’s. He bought her a firearm for her birthday last year and while she enjoys shooting, she remarked to me that she had hoped for something a bit more romantic. I changed her perspective by pointing out that a man who will buy his girlfriend/wife weapons is highly unlikely to every commit an act of violence against her. Her boyfriend gave her the means to defend herself and in my book, that’s pretty damned romantic.

This reminds me of my wife’s rejoinder in an argument: “You think you are so logical.” Delegitimizing logic is an attempt to delegitimize opposing viewpoints.

    Knew a young woman in management at a media company in the ’80s. She had been a dropout, got her GED, worked at the paper and went through college, and won a scholarship to UVA Law. She was a flaming liberal; her fiancee and I were Reagan conservatives.

    At one point, over a few adult beverages, she blurted out, “I can’t talk politics with you and Mike, you know too many facts.”

    That’s always been the real difference. Women want to believe their feelings, and resent facts and logic from intruding on that.

Guns are easier to buy than Sudafed?

Funny, because I didn’t need to supply two forms of ID, submit to a background check (while paying for the privilege), nor wait 10 days the last time I tried to buy Sudafed.

I guess being inconvenienced by waiting in line for a cashier at the pharmacy *is* more difficult than all of that.

It’s odd that they keep using the masculine pronoun for their hypothetical gun owners, when one of the fastest growing cohorts of new gun owners is single women.

As a female gun owner (and enthusiast, even), I’m feeling a little bit “othered” here.

    Well, that is the point. That said, I take a certain happiness in knowing that the local range is basically completely packed on ladies night. Of course it is also completely packed on Friday’s, Saturdays, and Sundays, and I haven’t checked the other days it’s open either.

Liberals: Those who believe a woman lying dead in an alley with her pantyhose tied around her neck is preferable to her standing over the body of her attacker with a gun in her hand.

Pfft! Nobody reads Cosmo. That magazine is something to flip through in the process of getting a pedicure.

If a woman is dating a man she believes she can’t trust with guns, that’s a man she can’t trust, and she should stop dating him. A man who can be trusted can be trusted without qualification, and that means even if he has guns.

The same goes for guns in the workplace. If an employer doesn’t trust his employees with guns, then he doesn’t trust his employees, and should fire the lot of them and replace them with people he trusts, with or without guns.

…myths propagated by the gun lobby.

Better known as ‘facts’.

Liberal Feminism is the idea that a woman being raped and murdered in an alleyway is morally superior to her carrying a gun and shooting the bastard.

Let’s make a deal. A gun for a scalpel. Save ten thousand lives and over one million lives, respectively. That includes you too, government agents, criminals and terrorists, and #CecileTheCannibal.

How about it, female chauvinists, pro-choicers, reactive parenthood, planned parenthood, and government security?

Make life, not abortion. Do it for the children!

While I have rarely used ““schnookums” as a term of endearment, I have often found that gentle but firm application of the trigger finger to a womans built-in trigger to be of exceptional value in causing an explosive and mutually pleasurable reaction. Guys who fail to practice in the field with their trigger finger are often left with flaccid and atrophied digits and are ignorant in their proper use.

Is that gunsplaining, Cosmo? 😉

How odd – feminists, who presumably (or at least historically) are in favor of “equal rights,” don’t want women to have their own “equalizer” should they ever meet up with a criminal lowlife who wishes to do them harm ~

………………………..

And the number one reason a gun is better than a woman.

#1 YOU CAN BUY A SILENCER FOR A GUN

    Double-barreled misogyny lives. Fool.

    Top Ten Reasons A Gun Is Better Than A Woman

    I could make up a “Top Ten Reasons A Gun Is Better Than A Man list, I suppose, but I’m just not as insecure or sexually insufficient as you are, I guess.

    Memo, Ladies: Some men really do buy guns only to compensate for their small winkies. Avoid these types.

      healthguyfsu in reply to Amy in FL. | February 15, 2016 at 12:36 am

      Oh c’mon ladies don’t let the cosmo crowd get you all into uppity mode. This is non-PC battle of the sexes post-in-jest type stuff. Of course, you could make a top ten list for men, do it, only the idiots will accuse you of being bigoted for it.

What any female I date needs to know about my guns. I will be happy to teach you how to use any of them safely. I will even let you shoot most of them. But most important thing to know is that the guns were here before you were and will be here regardless of if you choose to stay or go.

Read an article about “missed and uncounted” gun violence. Hunting.
Yeah, now some fool thinks the table food we hunt for our sustenance should be counted in the gun violence statistic.

Holy cow, what are those things in the photo? A brace of the notorious Beretta Photoshop Specials?

Cosmo is way out of touch here. The gun range is actually a great date location.

Always count on progressives to ignore empirical evidence.

Which is why I date a woman raised in a foreign, repressive regime. She instantaneously understood the genius of the Second Amendment.

It’s only the people with a constrained world view and no concept of history who are hoplophobes.

2nd Ammendment Mother | February 15, 2016 at 1:14 pm

Hmmmm…. and if you’re dating a gun owner, the odds are pretty high that they’ve passed some type of background check in the last few years.

Ok, now that I have stopped laughing at the simple truth of your statement, I would like to applaud you for that. Hear that ladies men who own guns legally are safer for 2 reasons, lol.
