If you don't want people to call you a sociopath when you are dead

Then don't fucking be a sociopath when you are alive.

you dont want people to say you caused death, destruction and despair in your obituaries, then don't fucking cause these things when you are alive.

(and yes, this was bothering me enough to make another thread about it)

Is there a feminist reason to go to war?

I was reading some articles about Syria and the use of rape as a weapon of war in Syria, and wondering this.

I am usually quite opposed to war, but can we all just ignore this humanitarian crisis in Syria? Can we ignore what is clearly a crisis that is disproportionately affecting women?

Is allowing this to happen without any international interference ethical?

"With every war and major conflict, as an international community we say 'never again' to mass rape," said Nobel Laureate Jody Williams, who is co-chair of the International Campaign to Stop Rape & Gender Violence in Conflict. "Yet, in Syria, as countless women are again finding the war waged on their bodies--we are again standing by and wringing our hands."
