You Need A Man!

Ah Suzanne Venker!

We meet again!

Well this time she’s on Fox telling ladies how they really need a man and that not having a man is super duper bad. Now I am not saying having a boyfriend and a husband is a bad thing, I am just saying that it isn’t the philosopher’s stone and El Dorado rolled into one that people keep insisting it is.

Age of Kali – It’s Been a Year

It’s been nearly a year since India’s idea about women changed.

In every  feminist revolution there has been a precipitating event, a single instance that changed the way we thought about things. That made us all sit up and change.

And that event in India was the Nirbhaya rape and subsequent death.

Women and Men fought for changes, they tried to change a system of judiciary that was incredibly biased against rape victims. They tried to change the way the police thought about rape and sexual harassment and these are still ongoing struggles with some knee jerk tragedies such as the expansion of the death penalty in India.

However the fact that change is coming. You can smell it on the wind. The dialogue has changed from “It’s your fault” to “It’s not” and from “Don’t Go Out” to “Take precautions”.

There Is A Reason We Think You Are Harming Men

There is a sub-sect of the MRA movement in which resides the Pick Up Artist.

See, the problem with MRA is that they forget about Men’s Rights and go straight onto bashing women’s rights. There are many men who fight for the rights of men who don’t do this, but a lot of men would rather bash women than help men. They begrudge women setting up shelters for abused women but do not show the same solidarity. Their haunts are cloistered worlds of slow bigotry. From the more “moderate” places like A Voice for Men where such charming denizens were found happily cooing along to their writers attacking women’s rights in Afghanistan and India to places like the Spearhead where there is a fairly large smattering of racism or people like Judgy Bitch who was outright blaming rape victims for their rapes. In this there is a sub-sect of people who are Pick Up Artists who think that there is a specific method for getting laid simply by following certain steps.

Yes we can all agree there are issues with being a man that are not spoken about clearly and yes a lot of that is men going “dude! Stop being a wuss” rather than women saying that.

But there are some statements that are so unbelievably vile that one cannot even fathom WHY or WHAT logic drove them to say such a horrific thing.

Now here is the thing. I think Roosh and the writer Tuthmosis are manufacturing controversy here. I place the link out of my sense of fair play although it gives me no sense of pleasure to do so. [Read more…]

A Voice for Me – A Firestorm of Helmet Bunnies, Sluts and Rape

[important]TW- Rape, Victim Blaming, Suicide, Depression[/important]

I recently came across this word in a twitter discussion (OKAY, Raging Argument) with Dean Esmay and Judgy Bitch. For those who don’t know who these are, Dean Esmay is one of the big shots up at A Voice for Men and Judgy Bitch is a lady MRA who I came across when she was blaming the victim of the Steubenville rape.

And this argument boiled down to the same “nonsense” that Thunderfoot was flogging. That rape victims if they don’t take specific precautions are to blame to varying levels for their rapes.

And this term “Helmet Bunny” was an affront to me. [Read more…]

Ann Marie Waters – You Are Not Helping By Supporting Condell

No Really.

Pat Condell’s stances are widely pushed among racist circles because Mr. Condell speaks with of conspiracy theories of Muslims. One of his most recent statements was fear for Sweden for granting asylum to 2 MILLION Syrians. A little bit of googling and you find out that the real story was “Sweden gives 8000 Syrians Unlimited Leave To Remain and a chance to become Swedish because they are unlikely to be able to return to Syria”.

A humanitarian gesture.

Mr. Condell was more worried not about a horrific war where millions are displaced and thousands have died and we have seen the use of Chemical Weaponry but over Sweden Importing 2 Million Muslims And Destroying Themselves.

Never mind the reality. This was pushed across the Internet. This view was defended by many of his followers. I pointed out how silly it was and honestly? I got a fair amount of flak.  [Read more…]
