Sarah Palin is Pro Choice

Do you really think that Sarah Palin would disagree with anything on these pictures?

It's all about "choice" eh. The freedom to choose what road is best for your life... your family. The government really shouldn't be involved in such a personal decision. Right?

Great hub! Could you do one on guidelines for single women that want to buy a gun?

Jack! Great Hub, Sweet Fella! I have a charter arms saturday night special on my night stand ... it's always ready to rock and I know how to use it. I'm no raving beauty, but, I have grown accustomed to the way my body is arranged .... anyone tries to rearrange it, I'll rearrange theirs. Other than that, I can be very easy to get along with.

Thanks again for a great Hub, Jack!

I'm not going to comment on the gun control issue, but I would like to say that I find the implication that if a woman isn't armed, it's somehow her fault if she's the victim of crime absolutely ludicrous.

You might have a much better case, Maddie, if someone had actually "implied" that... but no one did.

Too bad.

But let's look at that issue of "fault" and behaviour.

Is a woman at "fault" if

1) She doesn't put her seatbelt on, and someone runs thru a stoplight hitting her head on, which then forces her thru her windshield?

2) She doesn't lock her door at night even though she's in a high-crime area thereby giving easy access to a social deviant who uses it to molest her?

3) She chooses to skip her homeowner's insurance payment in order to buy a new pair of shoes and on the 4th of July a neighbor playing with fireworks sets her house on fire -- thus not only losing everything... but now having no way to replace it and still on the hook for the mortgage?

In each of these scenarios the woman had a choice. Yet.... she was not the prime "fault" for any of the bad things that happened to her.

Someone else ran that stop sign. Someone else choose to break into her home. And someone else choose to negliently use fireworks.

But... her CHOICE put her in a position where someone else's "fault" made the circumstances much worse for her.

I like women to have the CHOICE to engage in the most effective way of self defense. How about you?

I agree that American's should be armed, male and female, and able to protect themselves, particularly in their own homes.  Some of these images are powerful, the Israeli flag in particular.  And I got a laugh out of the "Give up my rifle?  Never!  I'm blonde, not stupid."  I bet my wife would agree with you on that one.  Good hub, dude.  Thumbs up.

And Maddie, for whatever it's worth, I didn't see any thing in this hub about women being to blame for victimization.  To me it just seems like an argument for arming oneself with a gun.  It's heavily slanted to the pro-gun side, obviously, but I'm not sure where the blame thing is in here. The argument seems to be that a gun is a better form of protection against predators than other methods (keys or calling 911). No blame.

Jack & Shadesbreath:

"Being prey is a choice. Your choice?" does imply that the victim of a crime is somehow at fault for that crime.

And Jack, let's be civil, okay? I responded to your hub with my opinion. You responded to my comment with hostility and sarcasm. I'm happy for you to disagree with me, but I'd appreciate if you expressed that respectfully.

Since when does the term "pro choice" apply to gun control? Pro choice is about the abortion issue. Wouldn't it more aptly be titled "A Pictoral Journey About The Right to Bear Arms"? Just curious as to why the deceptive title.

This title seemed to have drawn attention. I had never thought about having my guns are pro-choice. I guess this is the only thing I'm pro-choice for. I'm a female and I love this hub. I hope more women see it and it lets them know that it's perfectly normal for a female to be armed like men have been all these years. It's kinda been a stereotype that men are the ones who carry. But, this shows that we need to break that stereotype, and take charge of our own protection and not rely on others because we may not always have someone else there to take care of us. I have my carry liscense and carry. I have always had guns. But, not all women were raised like I was and were not getting guns for their Christmas presents instead of jewelry LOL. And I think this hub can help women see it's a positive thing to be pro-active in protecting themselves and their families. About the title, it doesn't seem deceptive to me. It's our choice to be pro-choice (pro-active) or not when it comes to protecting ourselves and our loved ones.

Maddie, I will grant that that particular line has a potential scope of appeal that probably opens the whole hub up to speculation.  That's why issues like this get so polemic rather than rationally discussed.  I have to say, I'm with you on that one.  And, frankly, this hub can easily draw a spree of supporters who would, in their dogmatic and even fundamental enthusiasm, destroy the possible message that I, personally, would like to see being delivered by this hub regarding how important gun ownership is for all of us.

Being "prey" is not a choice.  Being prey is a matter of bad luck in some cases, and, frankly, having "girl parts" and smaller bodies in a world where males are sexually driven or, at the very least, stronger and more inclined to violent acts.

When you use the phrase "at fault" for me that implies that a woman somehow has taken action to bring predatory behavior on herself (and I believe that is what you mean when you say it).  I don't, however, believe that is the intent of this hub over-all despite a poor choice of language in one or two slogans being bandied about.  I don't even deny that there are those out there behind the issue of supporting gun ownership who would blame a woman for being victimized because of ... her choice of clothes or hair or whatever.  I'm not in support of that kind of radical crap at all. That's the land of fundamentalism and scare tactics and all kinds of tiny mind stuff.  And, I didn't see it here in this particular hub either (again, a few marginal choices aside). 

Men should have enough self control to rein in their animal sides.

I think the reason I support the over all message, if not all the particulars of this hub is that not all men do rein it in. And when some a-hole dirtbag does find himself incapable of resisting his animal side, for whatever excuse he makes, including blaming it on his victim, I'm really, really, really in favor of that woman blowing his goddamn head off and watching him bleed out on the ground rather than having to live out her life dealing wiht the trauma of what took place.  Or,better yet, scaring him off just because he saw she had a gun. 

Same goes for a guy, but it doesnt' make the point of gun ownership as well to discuss it in terms of men.

I hope that is respectful enough to your position, Maddie, because I truly support this hub's basic premise, and, maybe unlike its writer, I am hopefully even-keeled enough to carry on a civil conversation about it with those who hold opposing views.

(And Jack, I really am with you on this, even if we don't quite agree on methods of delivery all the way.)

Jack responds:

That was a snarky answer, edging towards sarcasm but the only hostility one could find is if one used a microscope.

Maddie sez:

"Being prey is a choice. Your choice?" does imply that the victim of a crime is somehow at fault for that crime.

Jack Responds:

I don't see that there... but I'll tell you what. I removed that picture from the hub just so that you and others won't get hung up on it and miss the greater point.

Which is:

I like women to have the CHOICE to engage in the most effective way of self defense. How about you?

Sorry Chris, but one side doesn't get exclusive use of the English language and any phrase that they desire.

Quite all right. Even my wife doesn't agree with me 100% of the time and we've been married 34 years. :-)

How about this, then: "It's not your FAULT. It is your RESPONSIBILITY."

Too, Maddie

Seems to me that there are those people out in our World that will look for and find the negative side of things in everything. I would think that you were looking for it here!! This message clearly states the obvious, that if a Woman had a fire arm on her person while someone was attacking her they would have a sure fire way to protect themselves and not become a full fledged victim. The criminals of our world will always find a way to bare arms, If you took that right away from the good people then we would be run over quickly by the bad!!! No one will enter my home that has intent to harm and make it out alive themselves!!!! I will be on them so fast they won't even know what hit them! And yes I am a women :-) I will not sit by and allow someone to harm my children, husband or self!!!!! That would be one sorry person. So Miss Maddie, I hope that you will be enlightened and choose to take action to protect yourself. I do not cary constantly myself, but do choose to be safe in were I rome! At night I park near the door entrance of a store, Do not walk alone for any amount of distance or go in unpopulated area's, day or night! You are a beautiful women and there fore should be even that much more careful with yourself! I hope and pray that nothing will ever happen to you, if you do one day choose ta cary, then I would say that chances of something happening would go down tremendously!! Have a great day;-)

Did very well on the hub here and very nice pictures. It depicts the intimidating and strong capacity of women. We indeed could carry, shoot and defend ourselves well. This is girl power we have here.=)
