why test on animals when there are prisons full of rapists

because the prisons aren’t actually full of rapists

the rapists run free and the prisons…

How can what I said be so misconstrued when what I said exactly was,

Because testing on humans is seen as unethical and illegal if they haven’t consented.” 

"Read a fucking book about the ethics of human experimentation."

At no point did I say I think it’s okay to test on animals. At no point did I mention my feelings on the matter at all, only the factual truth that it is considered unethical to experiment on unconsenting humans and for those in the thread to learn something about human experimentation and the ethics of it by reading a book about it.

You can’t just take away a prisoner’s human rights because you think they’re evil or because they did something evil. What would that make you? We are not morally superior to criminals if we subject them to torture. We’d be doing something evil and horrific too. Maybe on a smaller scale, but we would be just as guilty of violating them as they are of their victim.

I never said that testing medicines/cosmetics was morally right, but the people who would be tested on are not moral people, as I said before it poses an interesting question as to whether someone who has awfully violated another’s rights deserves their own, if someone has tortured and killed another human being, is it really ethically wrong to subject them to testing which could benefit society, testing treatments for a fatal disease on those criminals could save the lives of hundreds or thousands of innocent people, sitting in prison for 10-20 years is only a drain on the economy as the government has to pay for these peoples lives and they are contributing nothing. 

While I agree with you that consented testing on humans is the best course of action, the number of people who would be eligable for these tests and consent to them is unsurprisingly quite small, so what  would you propose we test on at that point? Animals is pure and utter cruelty, subjecting innocent insentient creatures to testing which they cannot understand, let alone consent to is about as morally reprehensible as you can get. Human tissue is a common subject, however the results gained from this type of testing is incredibly limited. So what would you propose be done?

Feminism is female rights. Nothing else. There is nothing to do with equality or men.

Manslation: I refuse to understand what feminism actually is. Things that aren’t about men frighten and confuse me.

Or maybe that’s what feminism is, and often it’s about attacking men. Just as this post does, it accuses any man who criticises feminism of being stupid and frightened.

Manslation: I refuse to understand what feminism actually is.

Translation: I use stupid gender adapted words to hide behind and demean people to criticise me.

Feminism is supposadly the advocacy of women’s rights for equality to men. But as you prove by “manslating” everything people who disagree with you say, it’s more about demeaning men than anything else these days.

By the way, notice that I don’t “femslate” what you say because it’s petulant and an unintelligent way to argue.

Where did I ever say that? I said that human experimentation is illegal and considered unethical. Personally, I despise animal experimentation. I believe it’d be best to test on humans who have volunteered (after being clearly informed) as they are the only ones able to provide informed consent and the results gathered would give a better picture of what to expect since they are human.

I know it’s an emotional subject, for me as well, but do not ever put words in my mouth. It’s the quickest way to piss me off. You follow me, so surely you’ve seen my later responses. Read those before deciding to judge me.

If you reread your original response, it sounds awfully like you agree with what you said.

It is obviously just a fantasy and everyone knows that experimenting on non-consenting humans is illegal and considered unethical, however I’m pretty sure they were saying that (and I agree with) it shouldn’t be more ethical to experiment on innocent animals than to experiment on people who have assaulted someone in one of the worst ways imaginable.

My opinion is that if someone violates another person’s rights in that way, they do not deserve their rights. Rapists, murderers, torturers, pedophiles, I’m sure most people agree that they deserve to suffer, for the awful crimes they commit and being subject to medical/cosmetics testing is a small price to pay for that.

Because testing on humans is seen as unethical and illegal if they haven’t consented, you stupid fucks.

Goddamn, read a fucking book about the ethics of human experimentation.

So you consider it completely fine to experiment on unconsenting INNOCENT animals but it’s unnacceptable to experiment on rapists? You believe that a rapist should have more rights than an innocent animal. At least the rapist understands what’s happening to them.

Don’t you love how feminists mock men who say “not all men” which is at it’s base trying to say that not all of one group follow a certain pattern yet trend the “yesallwomen” tag which assumes that they speak for every single woman in existance

wait, if girls can’t show their bra straps, why can boys show their boxers and half their arse?

They can’t, they get mocked, ridiculed and yelled at for that just as much as girls do for bra straps.

Here’s a hint:
Gender equality doesn’t mean treating guys worse to give them the same amount of hardship of girls. It means treating everyone well. It means treating all girls, all races, all sexualities, all ages, all people the same way white men have been treated since forever.

Gender equality isn’t a contest of who has it worse. Or even about who has it better. It about treating everyone the same. No matter what makes them different.
