single sex warfare.
« on: Apr 15, 08, 06:06:40 pm CDT »

ok, not sure if this has been hit yet. but i'm a newbie, which means i'm supposed to screw up. of course if i do screw up, i'll just blame it on somebody else.  :D   anywho, i'm also a newbie in the sca and one of the activities i'm going to get into is fencing. but i've made it clear that i'll not ever fight a woman. they aint got no damn business with a weapon anyway. but as it turns out i'm not alone. there are many men and women who think women should not fight in the sca. but i'm not sure if i'm the only man who will not fight girls, although from the reaction i've been getting it seems to be something never heard of before. so it looks like i've thrown a monkey wrench in the gears. so what would i be: rogue? scoundrel? cad? :angel:? other?    common guys, how many of you are against women fighting in the sca. i know i sure as hell am.

Prick.

I think that sums it up nicely.

You may want to just cut and run right now, dude. Forget you were ever here.

I'm saying that line isn't going to make you many friends here.

Nor should it.

What. The. Fuck.

Ain't got no damn business with a weapon anyway?

Too bad you're talking out your ass.  You won't fight women?  Yeah, Ill bet your bravado-egocentric ass would be mortified when I'd beat you sideways.

West Virginia, huh?  Man, you just personified the stereotypes, sad though they are.

Go away, you misogynistic piece of shit.

As an SCA fencer myself, allow me to say if I ever meet you in combat I'll be tempted to remove the safety.  I know plenty of women who are incredible fighters, both fencing and heavy combat.  You wouldn't fit rogue, cad, or scoundrel.  More of a waste of space, really.  "Rogues" like you could very well give the rest of us a bad name.  Thanks.... dumbass, for living up to all those unfortunate stereotypes that fall on folks from West Virginia.  Go win yourself a Darwin award asshat.

masogynistic piece of shit? the hell i am. in fact i love and adore women. always have. and it's because of the fact that i love and respect women that i will not beat on women for fun. i will not fight females, and that includes sparing with females in martial arts class. i've had this stand since i was 17.
masogynistic? not even close my dear, not even close.

Look pal - as a fighter I can say - once that armor is on, I'm another fighter, just like you.  I choose to put myself out there for battle.  You're not coming upon me in some dark alley, or around the kitchen table.  We're not in a regular 'fight'.  We're in battle - one that I put myself into freely, of my own decision. 

Fighters like you, who refuse to fight females - and hide behind the "I don't hit women" line of shit - are simply cowards whose egos couldn't take it if a female were to beat them.  You say weapons don't belong in womens' hands?  That's because you're too afraid to see just what a woman's hands are capable of.

I call Bullshit.

And btw - Spellcheck is a good thing.

i love and respect women too, and I also respect that they have the same choices men do.  If they want to pick up a blade and fence, or sword and board, great!  I call that equality, asshat.  What right do you have to try to take away their choice?

Dude, you could've stated your case in a more poetic way about how your sense of chivalry won't allow you to fight a woman. That might've been fine. Maybe a few girls would even think that's sweet. But as soon as you say "they aint got no damn business with a weapon anyway"...well that's just dipshit talk.

Tell you what...since the SCA prides itself on being historically accurate...find me some evidence that women have never taken part in combat ever in the history of the world. Then maybe I'll rethink my reaction to your position. Until then you're just a prick.

And btw...it's misogynistic...like Phee said.

Take your trolling and go somewhere where it's appreciated. This isn't the place. Refusing to fight women might seem honorable and respectful, but it doesn't make you a rogue, scoundrel, or cad. It makes you an antiquated relic of days gone by. Or, it might just make you the idiot who loses to women for no good reason.

I figure, no sense in surrendering when I can make something resembling a valiant stand before being crushed.

Wow dude.  Just wow.

OK.  Fine.  You refuse to fight against a woman - and you are correct in saying that it is, in fact, your choice.  If you come up against a woman in a bout and you state you decline to fight - that is your right.

However, don't come here and try to 'rally the troops' so to speak around the battle cry of women should not fight in the SCA and have no damn business holding a weapon.  That is not your choice to make.  At all. 

Go back to your shack in the woods there pal - you're done here.

Dude,

What a can of woopass you have brought yourself. You want to tout that bullshit do it on the AA forum and see what kind of response you get.

I am an unbelted fighter Squired to a great Knight, I have fought heavy for a good number of years and this year I will be fencing as per commanded by his Majesty King Konrad von Ulm the first. What you tout is old separatism; it was once in the SCA. I know many a female fighter that would take difference for what you say and a debt of honor would be owed.

Yes the definitions are as such

Rogue   1  : vagrant, tramp   2  : a dishonest or worthless person :   3  : a mischievous person : scamp   4  : a horse inclined to shirk or misbehave   5  : an individual exhibiting a chance and usually inferior biological variation 

scoundrel  a disreputable person : rascal

Cad: a man who acts with deliberate disregard for another's feelings or rights

Sound like you just might meet these requirements

He did manage to lock it briefly. I went to quote him before but the "reply" buttons were gone.

I was wondering about that.
