A new uber-like Taxi service is being launched. There's one catch, though: it's female-exclusive. This means that all the taxi drivers for this company are women and that only female customers will be catered to. Boys with mothers will be let onboard just so long as they are under 13.

I would post about how people would call this sexist if the genders were reversed in this situation but..... I've just lost the ability to care anymore...... -_-

Not even surprised.

Hey, when they start segregating men into camps 'because of safety concerns' can we make sure they at least give me some videogames so I won't get board? I know they won't let me use the internet but can they make an exception and have some LAN play?

OP makes an anti-feminist bait thread to a group of mostly men. Men respond with hurr durr stooopid wimenz! The circle jerk ends because everyone agrees!

As expected. It's not even cute or original anymore.

What exactly do you find "baiting" about the OP? There is literally no opinion rendered on it, and it describes a service that is currently in existence.

I looked over the thread. Never saw "hurr durr stoopid wimenz!". Seems like you're projecting again

On the contrary: this thread had the potential to start a healthy debate over the question of "Is this form of discrimination in the name of providing a safe place for women justified?"

Additionally, wonder how they'll deal with transgender (particularly pre-op) women seeking to become drivers. That's gonna be interesting

This is a great way to open up reasonable discussion about eliminating employer ant-discrimination laws because the physical safety of women is more important than preventing the feelbadz.

Lol @ trashy modern feminism instituting the beginnings of purdah.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

That's precisely what makes it bait. There's no opinion in it... he essentially dropped a piece of raw meat in front of a group of rabid dogs. I side-eye anyone who makes any thread asking a group of vocal anti-feminists what they think about something that's obviously feminist.

Humbly, I suggest what makes this "Bait" is not the fact is that it was submitted without comment, but that its... well, facepalm worth from inception.

A bad idea.

Silly.

Demeaning.

Cringe worthy.

Insulting on some levels.

Patronizing on others.

Some what self refuting on inception.

In short, an example of how poor some feminist thinking is ... and still being used as a serviceable idea by feminists.

What makes it 'bait' is that its deserving of every drop of ridicule it gets.

I suppose that I should've quoted the article on the rationale for this company, but anyone who was interested could've just read the link and found out.

What's so wrong and outrage-inducing about that? UBER drivers aren't licensed, so they may very well abuse women. The Chariot for Women service reduces abuse and therefore benefits society as a whole.

I think you're over-analyzing
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.
