Apparently It’s Now Sexist To Not Want Women To Be Shot And Killed
Some people think I’m sexist because I don’t want my future supermodel of a wife to get shot and killed during a home invasion.
I’m solidly on the record as being very pro-women, and I have consistently fought for the rights of hot women to do pretty much whatever they want. A couple of days ago, I wrote a piece about whether or not women get more attractive if they know how to use a firearm.
People seemed to have a problem with the following section after a Media Matters employee tweeted it out:
If I’m married and somebody breaks into my house, I want my wife to be able to give me covering fire as I move into position to take out the assailant. After all, what is love if it’s not the ability to provide covering fire?

LOL fucking “Covering fire.” Would having his fantasy gunslinger wife shoot the assailant herself be too emasculating or something?

Ummm… why can’t YOU provide covering fire while your WIFE takes out the assailant?

This guy’s fragility couldn’t be more manifest. If he were in an actual home invasion scenario, he would be completely docile and compliant

I believe I just got 20% dumber after reading that.

First off, it’s pretty weird that all these critics and the people over at Media Matters didn’t point out the following section I wrote:
It’s hard for me to explain, but there’s just something great about a woman who knows her way around a firearm. And before people start accusing me of sexism, I honestly love women who can outshoot me. It forces me to raise my game and bring my skills to the next level.
I once watched a female friend of mine strip an AR-15 in a matter seconds, and she did it with the smoothness of a trained operator. I think it’s the closest I’ve been to falling in love.
I guess some people just ignore things if they don’t fit a narrative. I literally said I “love women who can outshoot me.” I guess that will also now somehow get spun into a sexist statement.
Secondly, and much more importantly, I don’t know whether or not my future supermodel wife will be capable of taking the shot if she needs too. However, I’d like it a lot if my wife doesn’t get shot. Call it love, call it selfishness or call it whatever you want, but I don’t like the idea of somebody I’m married to getting cut down by a gunman.
By providing her covering fire, she can fire from a place of cover as I put myself at greater risk. I’m okay sacrificing myself in a gunfight during a home invasion if it means my wife lives to fight another day. Does this make me a hero? I don’t know and it doesn’t really matter. All that matters at the end of the day is that my smoke show wife is unharmed and the bad guy is dead.
Have fun trying to spin that into something about sexism.
