    Murder of a murderer? Nobody is committing murder. The state is taking the life of someone who killed another person.
    Taking a life is literally a murder though

    Plenty. I've had women who showed me loads of interest one week, then the next didn't even acknowledge my existence.

    Sometimes I have to feed my neighbour's pet cat while they are away on holiday. The cat is very friendly when I'm feeding it, but once the owner is back, it doesn't even acknowledge my existence.

    Girls are the same - if you're providing them with money, good sex (emphasis on good), you are high status or very good looking, they will show you plenty of interest. Once they get bored or someone better comes along, you are no more important than a piece of dirt on their shoe. It's happened to me before and also to guys I know.

    It goes from one extreme (really liking you) to the other extreme (not even caring that you exist).
    Maybe they just don’t like you anymore? That does happen in case you were unaware

    With the way this thread is going I genuinely don’t know if you’re joking or not. Either way I’m done with this **** 👋
    This forum, like many others, is routinely used as a place for angry young men to vent their sexual frustrations in the form of attacks on 'feminists' and women more generally (often including reference to liberals, leftists, indeed anything that isn't exactly what they identify as). Wherever possible they will include some 'laddish' slapping of each other on the back as part of the routine. They often start off using restrained language and sounding reasonable enough but if you don't agree with them they will turn on you and quickly descend into the more obvious language of the misogynist. Some of them in time will move on with their attitudes, some of them won't, the world will still turn and babies will still be born.

    I have explained this point before.

    The death penalty acts as a deterrent and a solution for one-time situations and stone-cold killers. If someone kills another person and denies them the opportunity to live, laugh and grow old, why should we give them their life and play happy family.

    Except you’ve previously said you’d give 15 year old girls the death penalty for abortion. Hardly a “solution for one-time situations like stone cold killers”.

    If a 15 year old knows that she will get the death penalty for committing abortion, i strongly doubt she will be in a hurry to end her own life in the process. If she then goes ahead with it, then we have to demand her life in payment for the unborn child.

    Oh, so I am barbaric when someone else killed an unborn child. I guess this is the double standard that men talk about.

    It doesn’t act as a deterrent!
    And you did seriously contradict yourself because you previously said that no ones life is more important than another’s/we don’t have the right to take a life/anyone that takes a life should have their life taken bla bla.

    Oh the irony.

    You wouldnt condone the death of an unborn child, but you would condone the death of that same child 15 years later.

    We have had this discussion before.

    A life is important. However when someone takes another person’s life, then their life ceases to be important. Do you understand now?

    Everything in life has risk and reward, action with consequence. We need to stop living in this utopian fantasy that people should not be held accountable for their actions.

    You said that taking a life is murder and murder is wrong. Now you are saying that the death penalty (which means to take a life ) is not murder and is not wrong. Can you not understand that you contradicted yourself?
    The reason for the murder is irrelevant, the action is the same.

    This is not contradiction. When someone slaps you, you don't turn the other cheek, you slap back.

    The fundamental policy is the safety of life of everyone. However when someone takes another person’s life, then we ask for their’s.

    You do realise that delegalising abortion is just going to make women "abort" in illegal, harmful ways?
