International study explores link between “rabid feminism” and homelessness

Tanveer AhmedRebel Commentator

The recent debacle surrounding a collection of homeless people known as Tent City in Sydney, Australia showed that do-gooders insisting that the homeless have no agency only encourages entitlement, along with the learned helplessness that so many already suffer from. 

The so-called “mayor” of Tent City turned out to have a long criminal record, and there was plenty of political posturing to go around.

The entire episode highlighted that purely “structural” explanations of poverty in rich countries are woefully inadequate.

Yes it is true that the homeless are homeless by choice… The other option is possibly suicide which is no choice at all..
Homelessness in this country is a death sentence because the majority of them freeze to death in our winters in short course..
The problem with the homeless for politicians is they don’t vote but the mass relocation of other illegals have an address and a paycheck and they will vote for whoever entitles them to that.!!
This country should be ashamed of itself for letting people here from other countries and be allowed in the position of a governing authority who is priorities are not Canadian people or their homeless with the mass importation of the illegals from their countries and their faiths to supersede the needs the people have in this country. We are not bigots and racists… We have our own culture and we have our own country and we wish to protect that.!!

Jay Kelly commented, “How did The Rebel get so far removed from the caring principles of Christianity, Judaism, and, yes, Islam, that it has stooped so low ?”

Question: Jay, tell us what you’ve done to make the world a better place.

I personally find that those who virtue signal are rarely virtuous.

Maybe it’s because someone like you screwed up their life, as a part of efforts to intentionally screw up their every little opportunity unless they would bow down and kiss your Godly white and male feet … for which reason they decided to raise their middle finger eternally in the general direction of society as a whole.

P.S.: “learned helplessness” is when you cause pain stimulus to someone in so many situations in so many ways that they “learn”, that there is no point in trying to avoid pain.

“learned helplessness” is not about personal failure. It is about pieces of shit who are sorry excuses for humans who intentionally inflict such harm upon individuals until they give up.

Helping people is not hurting people. Hurting people is not helping people.

Helping people is helping people. Hurting people is hurting people.

Building things up tends to work better when you are building things, and less well when breaking them down.

You see a lot more public housing and shelters for women, than there are for men.

Again Jay, Rebel readers would not do that. You know that’s true. There is a difference between understanding a condition and kicking dirt in their face.

No, Terry, we can do better than that. A homeless woman in Alberta is not on the street by choice. As a society, as a people, we can figure out how best to improve things. First, we can treat one another as human beings.

Tanveer Ahmed proposes that the woman on the street is there by her own poor choices. Terry, if she is there would you kick dirt in her face? Why not? What is it that makes you think you should treat the woman on the street as a human being? Are you human too?

Should you mention to Rebel readers that we can do better? That we can treat one another with respect?

Jay Kelly did you know idiotic socialists in Edmonton spent tens of thousands on a statue to honor the homeless , please tell me exactly how that kind of thing helps them? The money could have fed many of them, but self important idiots are more concerned about making themselves feel better.

Jay Kelly in the real world the ideology is making more homeless ,that is kicking them in the face , solving the problem and recognizing it are an attempt to help them.

Jay Kelly; Only you could think of kicking dirt in homeless woman’s face. Such projection.
commented 2017-08-16 23:48:39 -0400
Such compassion on Tanveer Ahmed’s part. I suppose if we pass a homeless woman on the street we should kick dirt in her face to remind her how worthless she is.

How did The Rebel get so far removed from the caring principles of Christianity, Judaism, and, yes, Islam, that it has stooped so low ?

Show me anyone who is rabid about a cause – feminism, animal welfare, the environment – and more often than not, you’ve got someone who is socially retarded.

“Hey…I’m not working…because I will not work for “the man”…I am poor and struggling….hmmmf…that will show those capitalist pigs."

Poverty is a self inflicted wound….just like the holes in a junkie’s arm….take it from someone who was once voluntarily homeless…(well….“voluntarily” in the sense that I bought into Marxist bullshit)

I can agree with the actual original basis of feminism and what they hoped to achieve , but the true feminists won those battles a long time ago and went on living and enjoying life. The new fanatics have to imagine or create misery and problems to justify their own hate.

Funny how things like being a criminal and deciding to stick a needle of heroin in your arm leads to poverty, it must somehow be the fault of everyone and everything that is not progressive.
