It is an unfortunate fact that the bulk of humanity is too limited in its mental vision to weigh with patience and intelligence the reality around them. Feminists doubly so.
This is not run a combat blog. I post interesting articles to encourage discussion and reblog things I find funny, interesting or important. I, generally, do not engage in debates or arguments but I will correct facts where I can and discuss things with people who want to talk reasonably.
I do not have an allegiance to any particular group only to ideas. Ideas which can change based on new information or perspective.
I do not believe in the "patriarchy" myth, the "wag-gap" myth, "privilege", political correctness, or just about any other myth favored by the "social justice" crowd. They are hypocrites that base their ideology on faulty data, misconceptions, and outright lies for selfish reasons and behave much like a cult.
I am proactive with the ignore button. I do this for the preservation of my sanity, and no, that it not a joke........ 26,379 Bigots ignored since 2012
Back in 1980 outgoing President Jimmy Carter re-authorized the selective service system requiring all males to register for potential military conscription with Proclamation 4771, Registration Under the Military Selective Service Act with the recommendation that the Act be extended to include women.
Implementation of Proclamation 4771 did not, however, include the mandatory registration of females only the recommendation that it be extended to include women. This resulted in Bernard Rostker, Director of Selective Service, et al. v. Robert L. Goldberg, et al court challenge. Along with the ACLU the National Organization of
Women Misandrists filed an Amicus Brief claiming it discriminated against women.
Once again the supreme court of the time made a bad decision,
In the majority opinion, Justice William Rehnquist wrote “[t]he existence of the combat restrictions clearly indicates the basis for Congress’ decision to exempt women from registration. The purpose of registration was to prepare for a draft of combat troops. Since women are excluded from combat, Congress concluded that they would not be needed in the event of a draft, and therefore decided not to register them.” Implicit in the obiter dicta of the ruling was to hold valid the statutory restrictions on gender discrimination in assigning combat roles.
The US Supreme Court decided that since women were excluded from combat service they could be excluded from the draft.
For the past 33 years powerful Feminist organizations, including N.O.W., have done absolutely nothing to change this. They have successful pushed for electing women to congress based solely on their gender, they have pressed for special laws to protect women based solely on their gender, pressed for more and more special government programs for women based solely on their gender, and they have even managed to get a special White House Council advocating for only females. But in 32 years have never pressed for turning Jimmy Carter’s original “recommendation” into a gender neutral mandatory registration policy.
The official department of defense announcement in January of 2013 removing restrictions for women in the military makes the Supreme Court’s Rostker v. Goldberg Decision, no longer applicable. Now that the US military has removed their exclusion of women from combat, that supreme court decision is no longer an obstacle for ending gender “discrimination”. If no exclusion from combat exists then women in the US should be required to register with all mandatory selective service because no exclusion exists.
Feminists like to pretend that the supreme court decision 33 years ago has somehow magically ended all discussion on the blatantly sexist implementation of the mandatory selective service system, something they once argued was discriminatory. But the 1981 decision no longer applies. It could be over-turned tomorrow, by feminists in the white house right now. The Chair of the White House Council on Women and Girls could simply ask the Male-Feminist-in-Chief (Obama) to change Jimmy Carter’s “recommendation” into S.O.P. and by the end of the year all persons, regardless of gender, would be required to register for potential military conscription. The Supreme Court has already ruled that it was because of the restrictions against women in combat that it was constitutional to exclude women from the draft, however, those restrictions don’t exist anymore. This change would fall within already settled law, and could be enacted by the feminist-in-chief (Obama) without the need for congressional approval. It could be done with the simple stroke of a pen.
The only groups pressing for this kind of gender equality in the discriminatory selective service policy are Men’s Organizations
The very organizations fighting for gender equality that Feminists continue to attack.
N.O.W. and other groups argued back in 1980 in their own Amicus Brief that excluding women from the draft was discriminatory. The Supreme Court ruled that because women were excluded from combat they didn’t have to register for the draft. If those restrictions no longer exist Feminists including N.O.W. and The Chair of the White House Council on Women and Girls could press Obama to end what they once argued was discriminatory and require women register for the draft with a stroke of the pen. Easy, painless slam-dunk win, right?
So why haven’t Feminists groups pressed for gender equality in this area when it could be done so easily? Obama could have the Selective Service Administration change it’s gender exclusionary policy tomorrow and there is nothing anyone could do to stop it. It could only be challenge it in court after the fact, but WHO would want to challenge it? Who would want to keep inequality based on gender?
Feminists? Traditionalists? — funny how these two groups seem to be on the same side so much of the time.
If Feminists challenged it, they would have to defend gender inequality. This is the strategic position to put them in to help expose the hypocrisy of modern day feminists to a wider audience.
They won’t press for such a simple policy change because real gender equality is not what they are fighting for. They can’t challenge the change without exposing that they aren’t really interested in gender equality.
Watch for all the white knights and male feminists to come crawling out of the woodwork and twist themselves in knots trying to rationalize that women shouldn’t be in combat without actually saying women shouldn’t be in combat to maintain this gender inequality status quo that favors women. Wonder how they’ll try to twist things and claim “Patriarchy”.
This is actually an old Zen koan, similar to the more well-known "what is the sound of one feminist oppressing herself?" that young gender studies scholars must puzzle over before attaining full victimhood.
(The answer to both is "Stop derailing my abuse of you!!!")
Feminist: Misandry doesn’t exist.
Me: Men get sentenced to longer prison terms for the same crime.
Feminist: That’s misogyny, because women aren’t seen as a threat.
Me: So is black men being sent to jail longer an instance of black privilege, because white people aren’t seen as a threat?
I am African American and I take issue with what you posted.
Particularly THE PART WHERE YOU THOUGHT OF THAT POINT BEFORE I DID
I LOVE IT
Congratulations, feminists. You successfully managed to blame the Isla Vista shooting on the Men’s Rights Movement. You even got mainstream attention from the likes of New Statesman and MSNBC.
Of course, you had to ignore his diagnosed mental issues, and the fact that he killed four men, three of whom he stabbed to death and knew
personally, two of whom he actively targeted, and the tiny little fact that there’s no evidence linking him to the MRM, but a win is a win, right?
Thanks for showing us exactly how much you care about men.
You could argue that you didn’t know about the dudes being killed, but
doesn’t that make you wonder what else you’ve swallowed whole that’s not quite right, especially about the MRM?
Say you’re discussing domestic violence and someone says “men are 40% of domestic violence victims” and you get upset because “YOU’RE DERAILING!” How? How can someone derail your conversation about domestic violence by talking about domestic violence?
If you’re of the opinion that feminism is about equality and not about hating men but you go around saying that male entitlement is endangering womens’ lives and that women are justified in being terrified of all men, but the reverse isn’t true, then I don’t think you understand how equality works.
If you care about male victims of rape and domestic violence but you refuse to acknowledge the inequity between the attention men get and the attention women get when they seek help for domestic violence and rape, or continue to try to convince everyone that “women have it worse” or if you use your fear as a citation of women’s oppression under men then I don’t think you understand what caring about men entails.
Because everytime anyone cares to point out inequalities men face there’s that one feminist that goes “not all feminists” or “those aren’t real feminists” or “FEMINISM IS ABOUT EQUALITY!” because they’re literally more worried about the reputation of a social movement than the wellbeing of male victims. You’d rather spend all your time defending a social movement than trying to change the social movement and make it better. You’d rather yell at people who’ve been fucked over by your movement than inspect your movement and the inequalities men face and do your part to make those things better.
GET YOUR FUCKING PRIORITIES STRAIGHT, FEMINISTS. Because it’s really fucking insulting for you to try to tell people who have been inside feminists circles that you somehow know more than them about what feminism does. You are not an authority, you are just another cog in the machine of injustice.
A man is not oppressing you, raping you, assaulting you, or harassing you by being within 15 feet of you.
Wrongly accusing a man of rape doesn’t dismantle the patriarchy, it makes you look like a horrible person for ruining someone’s life.
Catcalling is pretty bad, but it’s not the end of the world. Unless he’s actively harassing or approaching you, don’t call the cops every time a dude shouts at you from his car.
A girl who has a lot of guy friends probably doesn’t hate women, they just have a lot of similar interests.
If you’ll gladly raise a female child but express disdain, horror, or disgust towards the possibility of having a male child, you do not need to be a parent. Period.
Your ‘male tears’ mug just makes you look like a tool.
You claim men are oversensitive, but the fact that you’re willing to garrote the next male who so much as asks you what time it is from across the room while poking at his dead phone or broken watch really doesn’t say a lot for your emotional stability.
Quit fucking trivializing actual rape victims’ experiences by saying every man’s born a rapist.
Freebleeding is hazardous. I don’t care what you do with it, but don’t get it all over places where people sit. Your period’s another waste mechanism for your body. If your own body doesn’t want it, what makes you think the rest of us do?
Stop glorifying female on male abuse. It’s not funny, it’s not cute, it’s not “fighting the patriarchy”. It’s abuse, plain and simple, and the reason why you don’t hear about it often is not because men are the only ones who do it to women - it’s because society has taught men to essentially grin and bear it. And you’re an irredeemable piece of shit if you think that men can’t be raped or abused.
For the love of God, shut up with the food analogies.
No one is saying it’s bad to be wary of some guy walking around at 2am in the alleyway on a Friday night. But instead of going out of your way to antagonize him because he might be dangerous, just cross to the other side of the road, take a different route, turn around, detour, whatever. If he follows, then you can act accordingly. This goes for any person of any gender - mugging, rape, kidnappings, and murder can happen to anyone.
Guy touches you inappropriately in a club? Yes, that’s bad and you should take precautions/defensive measures. Guy approaches you and talks to you in a non threatening, conversational manner? Not dangerous. Stop threatening to shank anything with a penis that dares talk to you in a social environment.
Tumblr feminism is teaching young women that all men are demons and all women are angels. Which isn’t the case at all.
Men are not naturally predisposed to hate and kill women on sight. If this were the case, there would be no women. Stop acting like we live in some weird version of Sin City.
Modern feminism implies that women should be fragile little flowers that need to be wary of everything a man does, and that they can never recover from rape or sexual assault. It tells women that they’ll be safe as long as they trust only other women and act vicious towards men to keep them away. It accepts crippling paranoia as normal and even encourages it in an effort to keep women ‘safe’. This isn’t healthy in any sense of the word, and feminism needs to start refocusing on equality rather than fear and hate.
