Hello! Thank you for using yiff.party!

We hope you enjoy using it. yiff.party operates on a non-profit basis, and as such, all the server expenses are paid by our users. We don't want to run ads or infect you with crypto miners. We depend on users like you to keep the site running, and to preserve years and terabytes of amazing content—some of which is no longer available from its original creators!

Because of the nature of the site, many users are reluctant to donate. That's OK! yiff.party was created so everyone can enjoy the content we host without any restrictions or paywalls. But if you value the service we provide, and are able to, we—and our users—would be tremendously grateful if you considered making a donation.

Donation progress for January 2020

So far, approximately $182.48 has been raised out of our target of $280.00. We're about 65% of the way there! Please note: this tracker is updated manually—don't worry if your donation doesn't show up immediately!

yiff.party's server costs are due on the last day of each month. So, we need to meet this goal before 31 January!

How to donate?

At this time, yiff.party can only accept donations in numerous cryptocurrencies. Please select a currency below to display the relevant donation address.

Bitcoin (BTC)
Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
Ethereum (ETH)
Ethereum Classic (ETC)
Litecoin (LTC)
Why can't I donate through other means (eg. PayPal)?

Due to the nature of sites like yiff.party, it is very difficult to find payment processors who will accept clients like us. If we were to accept donations via PayPal, it wouldn't take more than a day for someone to submit an abuse report and get our account frozen. Until a viable way of accepting monetary donations becomes available, cryptocurrency will remain the only option.

There are many resources available on how to purchase crypto. For Bitcoin, check out bitcoin.org's page on buying Bitcoin for a list of methods. For beginner Bitcoin users, yiff.party recommends using an escrow service such as LocalBitcoins.

A tale of two feminisms! Dueling narratives on equality | HBR Talk 16 2020-01-16T14:53:18+00:00close

In women’s name, the wage gap myth has been used to promote law and policy intended to increase government control over pay given to employees by private employers. Feminists promote the myth using slogans like equal pay for equal work, but what happens when you get into a discussion with one of them about what constitutes equal work?

They don’t want to acknowledge the very real sex differences in aptitude, physical strength and endurance, choice of profession, in performance of heavy labor, job duties that are dirty, dismal, difficult, or dangerous, in working an odd or undesirable schedule, or in choosing high-value jobs that take years of study to learn how to do. They can’t acknowledge those sex differences, you see, because if they exist, there may be instances where women don’t just fail to do equal work, but actually can’t do equal work… and that would ruin the narrative.

Why? Because most of the time, the people who earn higher wages because of these differences are men, and research shows that when factoring them into the comparison, the gap nearly all disappears. Poof! There goes the victimhood and the political leverage feminists had banked on it to provide for them. It’s certainly not going to be easy arguing for more government regulation to protect women from rampant wage discrimination that isn’t happening. Who wants to listen when the issue is obviously just an attack on merit pay?

The argument you’ll get back is that the sex differences under discussion are not real. Gender, we’re told by feminists, is a social construct. Women are not smaller and weaker than men, and it’s sexist say otherwise. Women are fully capable of doing any task as part of any job that a man can do. Any differences in work choices are a result of social expectations placed on women, rather than anything natural, and you’re sexist if you disagree.

One big problem: The wage gap myth feminits forgot to tell the intimate partner and sexual violence epidemic myth feminists about the whole “no difference” thing.

These advocates push their preferred law and policy by gendering the subjects of perpetrator accountability and victims’ rights. Rather than discussing patterns of violence, they discuss “male violence,” and “violence against women.” They cite statistics on female-reported violence, and statistics on male perpetration, but completely ignore female perpetration, particularly when it’s against male victims. They promote narratives that generally demonize the entire male population, with campaigns designed to imply that unless taught otherwise, all men and boys will eventually rape and beat the women in their lives. They portray women and girls as innocent and helpless victims who all need government intervention throughout society to protect against those horrible, predatory, violent men. On that basis, they lobby for law and policy that would exclude men and boys from victim’s services, and exempt women and girls from equal accountability for criminal perpetration.

As we’ve discussed previously, about ⅔ of family violence, whether we’re talking about partner violence or child abuse, is female-initiated. According to the most widely available research, about 40% of rape in the US, outside of the prison system, is done to male victims, mostly by female perpetrators. In other words, the issue is not gendered as feminists describe it, with almost entirely male perpetration against almost entirely female victims, but closer to equal, and it would be wise for any public policy intended to reduce these types of violence to take both sexes’ behavioral patterns into consideration.

Tell that to feminists, and you will find yourself the target of a series of accusations and hedging. Rather than acknowledge that reducing women’s initiation of family violence would reduce all of the violence that results from it, they accuse men’s advocates of wanting to “legalize beating women.” They argue that it’s not sexist to exclude male victims from the dialogue and exempt female perpetrators from the stigma they put on men, because these types of violence are worse when men do them.

Why?

Well, of course, it’s because of those sex differences, the existence of which the wage gap proponents deny. In fact, those differences will even be argued to override external equalizers.
Feminists will tell you men are bigger and stronger, you see, so it’s more dangerous and more harmful when they are violent, no matter what. Pay no attention to overlaps in the size spectrum, the effects of age, potential use of weapons, or sustained attacks that eventually pass a guy’s threshold for maintaining his self-control. Sex differences are a formula for negating the impact of any and all female violence against any and all male targets. Therefore, if you discuss partner violence as a genderless issue, it’s not because you are interested in the details that have to be addressed if one wants to reduce its incidence. It’s because you support beating women!

They’ll say rape is worse when men do it, because female victims might get pregnant and have to make a choice on what to do about that. True, male victims of female perps are at risk of their child being born into the custody of their rapist. The victim, even if he is underage, can be forced to pay his rapist child support for about 20 years. Feminists will simply deny that 20 years of enslavement could possibly compare to the horror of pregnancy, and therefore, resources and recourse for victims of sex crimes should be reserved mainly for women, and female perpetrators really shouldn’t be considered that big of a deal, because - hello - sex differences!

You know, those same sex differences that don’t exist when discussing education issues, but do when discussing custody, but don’t when discussing sports, but do when discussing suicide… Whichever spin feminists need is how the concept of differences or lack of differences between the sexes gets applied to the discussion… depending on the issue that is under consideration.

You think maybe they’re just making it all up as they go along?

Show notes:

Oprah Winfrey no Longer Executive Producer of #MeToo Rap Industry Doc

Stapler

In HBR News 236 we covered 50 Cent’s reaction to Oprah Winfrey “going after black men” in her participation in a once upcoming AppleTV+ documentary which reportedly detailed allegations of sexual misconduct against Russell Simmons. Since November 2017, Simmons has been accused of more than a dozen cases of sexual assault or sexual misconduct. Apple’s initial characterization of the film simply read: “A brilliant former music executive who grapples with whether to go public with her story of assault and abuse by a notable figure in the music industry. The film is a profound examination of race, gender, class and intersectionality, and the toll assaults take on their victims and society at large.” On Instagram, 50 Cent wrote that “these documentary’s are publicly convicting their targets, it makes them guilty till proven innocent.”

Perhaps Oprah took note as she is stepping away from the doc. She told the Hollywood Reporter: “I have decided that I will no longer be executive producer on The Untitled Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering documentary and it will not air on Apple TV+.[…] First and foremost, I want it to be known that I unequivocally believe and support the women. Their stories deserve to be told and heard. In my opinion, there is more work to be done on the film to illuminate the full scope of what the victims endured, and it has become clear that the filmmakers and I are not aligned in that creative vision."

She continued, "Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering are talented filmmakers. I have great respect for their mission but given the filmmakers’ desire to premiere the film at the Sundance Film Festival before I believe it is complete, I feel it’s best to step aside. I will be working with Time’s Up to support the victims and those impacted by abuse and sexual harassment.”

Ziering and Dick are previous Oscar nominees for docs like “The Invisible War” and “The Hunting Ground.” More updates to come as the doc is set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this month.

Simmons has admitted to “inappropriate conduct” in some instances and according to Rolling Stone, has apologized for “the instances of thoughtlessness in my relationships with women”. He has apparently stepped away from his business interests and is “converting his studio for yogic science into a not-for-profit center of learning and healing.”

One Woman Grooming Gang Arrested

By Mike J.

Gemma Watts, age 21, has pleaded guilty to seven charges of grooming and abusing young girls. British born Watts, would dress up and pose as a 16 year old boy to lure in unsuspecting girls. "Watts targeted her young victims on social media platforms and duped them into believing they were entering into a relationship with someone whom they could trust. She then went on to form physical relationships in which she spun a web of lies and deceit, giving her the opportunity to commit sexual offences." stated London Metro Police Detective Phillipa Kenwright.

Watts used the alias "Jake Watton" on apps such as Facebook, Snapchat, Yubo, and Instagram to attract various young girls. Watts was initially caught when one of her 14 year old victims told a medical professional, who then told police, that her boyfriend had sexually assaulted her. This lead London police to discover that Jake Watton and Gemma Watts were in fact the same person and also revealed two more victims. After being arrested in 2018, Watts admitted to the grooming and some of the assaults, she was then released on bail. She would go on to re-offend later in 2018 when she was found with a mising 15 year old girl who also told police she was sexually assaulted by Watts. She was formally charged later towards the end of 2019. Watts was then sentenced to eight years in prison.

Sum-thin’s Missing from Sumlin’s Story

Stapler

Jessica Sumlin, a single-mother who asked for help after losing her job before Christmas, has been exposed as a liar. During an interview with Fox 13 Memphis she claimed was risking eviction and trying to apply to jobs to support her eleven children. She was apparently let go from Taco Bell because of transportation issues. Some twitter users did some digging and a lot of her story appears to be false.

Moesha Stan Account tweets:

“So the woman with the 11 kids, actually lied about a lot. She does not have 11 kids, she was fired from her job for stealing, (not for a high risk pregnancy) and the boyfriend made her start the GoFundMe and lie.”

Other twitter users noted her story didn’t add up because it takes 90 days for a Memphis resident to be evicted from their home. Close friends and relatives of Sumlin confirmed that she only has two biological children and the other nine are her boyfriend’s children who live with her and her mother.

Wonder Woman Goes Swordless

By Mike J.

In a question and answer press event, Gal Gadot, star of the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984, stated that the titular character will not be wielding her sword from the previous movie. Gadot explained, "Wonder Woman does not carry a weapon, we had an intention to let go of the sword because there's something very aggressive with the sword; if you have a sword you need to use it...we didn't feel the shield was necessary either. She's a goddess, she can fight, she's super strong, and she has these skills. So no, she has the gauntlets, she has the lasso, she has the tiara and that's about it."

This is an interesting choice given how Wonder Woman's sword was seen as a point of contention by some members of woke Twitter back during the build up to the release of the first movie. The specific issue? Why penises, naturally. "Am I the only one bothered by the sword in the new Wonder Woman poster? Why does it look so phallic? Why is that all I can see?" one Twitter user wrote. "“Wonder Woman is an ultra-feminine peacemaker. A sword is a lethal phallic symbol. Why they don’t go together is not complicated." another Twitter user said. It's unclear if these, now very cold, hot takes inspired the change or if, Gadot's words can be trusted and, the change was made because Wonder Woman already has enough in her kit.

Prince of Woke

Stapler

The Daily Mail has made a cheeky article documenting Prince Harry’s timeline before and after his marriage to Meghan Markle. Titled “Once Prince Harry was the life and soul of the party, so how did he go from a fun loving bloke... to Prince of Woke?”, the article illustrates with photographs Prince Harry’s new interest in preaching about environmentalism and writing positive affirmations on cupcakes.

He has announced he and Meghan will quit public life.

Press F to pay respects. (Photos)

Because we said so! Tale of the Fempire's new clothes | HBR Talk 115 2020-01-09T14:45:39+00:00close

Previously on HBR Talk we’ve discussed what I’ve labeled the Feminist Advocacy Research Scam, a form of academic fraud wherein dogma is established as accepted, unquestionable “fact” through academic chicanery instead of rigorous vetting. Feminist writing and biased research are used to support conclusions that have no basis in fact, and wrongly applied to the general population, but not widely promoted. Instead, they’re buried under layers of citation and essay, with an end-result in the form of a report from newer research that traces back to the previous layer. That is then widely promoted, with the flaws at its roots shielded from public scrutiny by a trail of citations mostly hidden behind paywalls or in exclusive academic libraries.

When the validity of any claims based on these house-of-cards-supported reports is challenged, the feminist response is not to provide evidence, because they don’t have any. These are the resplendent garments of a thoroughly naked emperor, or perhaps an emperess, and you’d better proclaim their elegance and beauty, lest you become the target of a smear campaign by her supporters. They will use shaming, crybullying, and censorship to shut the questioner down before the entire scam gets exposed. That behavior has been protecting feminist narratives for decades.

This is how a belief like the Duluth Model of official response to intimate partner and sexual violence makes its way into becoming internationally standard practice despite the fact that even one of its creators admits that it is based solely on ideology. It’s how the Toxic Masculinity narrative became established as an issue to be confronted by the American Psychological Association despite the fact that feminism’s use of it originated not with research, but with Raewyn Connell’s gender dysphoria, filtered through her feminist belief in Patriarchy theory, and buried under layers of self-citation.

And Patriarchy… there’s another feminist “because-we-said-so” narrative that is often explained using made-up terms designed validate otherwise ridiculous attitudes and impositions like imputations of malice against the entire male population. You know… because if a feminist gives her narrative a label like “muh lived experience,” you can’t question it. It must be real, because it has a name, right?

Try to get one to prove their crazy conspiracy theory, and you will be treated to several rounds of circular reasoning that presents adversity faced by women and girls as if it is unique in type or degree, cites that as evidence of patriarchal oppression, then cites this alleged patriarchal oppression as evidence that the types and degrees of adversity faced by women and girls are unique. The fallacy here is obvious, yet the myth of patriarchal oppression enjoys widespread acceptance.

Why is this obvious tripe so easily adopted, with feminist buzzwords, myths, and attitudes becoming the filter though which gender issues are observed and discussed?

Well, again, it’s because they said so, or rather, because they saturated public discussion with enough repetition to disguise their dogma as common knowledge that only a fool would question. You’d have to be a fool, because “everyone knows” feminism is about equality for women, and what kind of person would oppose that?

It’s why “everyone knows” that without feminism, women wouldn’t be able to work outside the home, even though women working outside the home predates feminism by a long stretch. If you question feminist claims about this, well, clearly you just want to go back to the days when women weren’t allowed to work… even though there was no such time.

It’s why “everyone knows” women get paid a fraction of what men get paid for the same work, even though the wage gap myth is based on a comparison of raw averages among very unequal job choices and work habits. If you refuse to accept the narrative, it’s not because you’re opposed to manipulating the economy based on lies, but because you want women to be second class citizens.

It’s why “everyone knows” that feminists are the reason birth control exists because there was nothing before the pill, even though condom use predates the movement by centuries, and feminists have opposed birth control access for men as an affront to women’s control over human reproduction. If you question the feminist narrative on this, it’s most certainly because you want to keep women barefoot and pregnant, probably slaving in the kitchen to feed families of 27 kids while giving birth to another one on the fly like in Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life… even though every kind of hormonal birth control in existence could disappear right now and women would still have more options for controlling our fertility than men have for controlling theirs, and that’s not counting abstinence or the available methods of aborting a pregnancy.

It’s why “everyone knows” that if it weren’t for feminism, women would never have gotten the right to vote, even though the suffragist movement, the movement that rightfully deserves recognition for their fight for universal suffrage, was not a feminist movement, and the violent feminist suffragette movement may have actually been a detriment instead of a help in getting women’s voting rights established. If you question society’s debt to feminism for women’s suffrage, it’s obviously not because you’re a history buff, but instead because you oppose women’s voting rights, despite the fact that nothing about modern feminism can even remotely be credited with their protection.

It’s why “everyone knows” that until the mid-20th century it was totally legal for men to beat their wives, even though laws against wife-beating predate the feminist movement, those old laws carried harsh penalties like horse-whipping and public humiliation, and feminists have fought to prevent men from receiving the same recourse or protection against abusive female parters that women currently have against abusive male partners. If you question feminism’s version of partner violence history, it’s not because you’ve read news articles proving that narrative wrong. It’s because you approve of beating women.

It’s why “everyone knows” that there is a culture of tolerance for rape, resulting in a worldwide rape epidemic affecting anywhere from a fifth to half of the female population, even though research that tracks women’s assessment of their own experiences instead of filtering vague answers to vague survey questions through feminist dogma before deciding their victim status for them finds that number to be at most, 1 out of 50, and quite possibly even fewer. If you question the feminist “rape culture” narrative, it’s not because you treat the crime very seriously and are only willing to base your opinions on accurate information. No, clearly you are a rape apologist, maybe even a rapist yourself, and hey, maybe someone should contact authorities about you.

It’s why “everyone knows” that that epidemic of rape is mostly male-perpetrated against mostly female victims, even though about 40% of incidents that same survey would identify as rape if the researchers hadn’t designed their definition to exclude being “forced to penetrate” would be female-perpetrated acts against male victims. If you challenge the standards that obscure this male victim set, it’s not because your compassion for victims of sexual violence isn’t limited by the sex of the victim and perpetrator. No, it’s because you are trying to deflect from the real victims… women and girls… you creepy, potentially dangerious rape-apologist.

It’s why “everyone knows” that at one point in time women were considered men’s property, even though the laws feminists cite as evidence for this do not deem women property, but instead make women’s welfare the responsibility of the male head of their household, with rights, restrictions, and obligations faced by both sexes in conjunction with that expectation. If you show consideration for men’s experience under coverture and guardianship systems, it’s not because you recognize the burdens those systems impose on them. It’s because you think women should go back to being men’s property… literally chattel.

And “everyone knows” that throughout history women have been oppressed by a dominating and controlling patriarchal system… because feminists said so. If asked to prove Patriarchy Theory is valid, they’ll cite the feminist mythology that “everyone knows,” as evidence. If you point out the flaws in their argument, talk about men’s experiences of systematic oppression, point out the progress women have made, or otherwise question the patriarchal oppression narrative, it’s not because you see feminism as an oversimplification of a rather complex history. You just hate women and want to see them oppressed! You certainly can’t be allowed to publicly question feminism like this. Why, you make feminists feel unsafe!

This formula - repeated assertion of victim status defended by attacks on the character and social standing of critics who question that narrative - has successfully intimidated or indoctrinated the general public into tolerating all manner of false beliefs. It’s been working because most people don’t question these narratives, or if they do, they stop the moment their questioning is deemed offensive by the thought police. The only antidote to this is the segment of the population that doesn’t stop questioning, doesn’t stop digging, searching, assessing, and concluding based on facts, logic, and reason instead of dogma, collective victimhood or guilt, and fear of social consequences.

Social consequences we have seen, and we will continue to see, because seeing is what we do. Seeing is why we’re here… and why we’re hated.

We’re not afraid to call the emperess naked.

Do Women Dress For Other Women? Is Hallmark Fascist? Can Men Flirt Freely? | HBR News 237 2020-01-07T19:18:19+00:00close

Join us on the HBR News show as we talk about the recent news related to gender and men's issues, such as a study that suggests women dress modestly for other women, how Hallmark movies are fascist propaganda, Rose McGowan slams critics who say men can't flirt anymore, and much more! Tune in @6pm Eastern!

Show notes:

The Female Gaze

Stapler

New research, as cited by PsyPost: “provides evidence that women strategically dampen signals of sexual permissiveness and desirability to avoid provoking intersexual aggression. In other words, the study suggests that women “dress defensively” by wearing less revealing outfits when encountering other women.”

The experiments, with a sample of 584 women in total, looked at outfit choices depending on different types of social gatherings. The participants chose more modest outfits when attending all-female gatherings as compared to events with both sexes. This tendency was especially true of women who rated themselves as physically attractive.

Study author, Jaimie Arona Krems told PsyPost, “like men, women can and do compete — over friends, status, romantic partners. Once we acknowledge the reality that women are active agents who compete and aggress against one another, we can generate so many questions about how women defend themselves against this aggression.”

“More specifically, women are deeply rational and strategic; women are aware of the threats posed by others and act in ways to avoid those threats. Here, for example, we show that women are aware that appearing and/or dressing certain ways make them more likely targets of other women’s aggression, and that, in situations where this knowledge is salient, and for women most at risk of incurring aggression, women then choose to dress in ways might help them avoid others women’s slings and arrows.”

Hallmark and...Fascism?

By Mike J.

Hallmark movies have never, and most likely will never, be considered high art. The most scathing criticism that can be ascribed to their special brand of storytelling is that it's all rather bland and uninteresting. But Amanda Marcotte of Salon takes things one step further, asserting that Hallmark movies are, in fact, fascist propaganda. Marcotte wastes no time in comparing Hallmark movies to Joseph Goebbels approved Nazi propaganda, noting how both place an emphasis on family and light-hearted escapism. Marcotte also goes as far as to label Hallmark movies as antisemitic, her evidence of this is that some of their movies feature, while featuring Jews and Hanukkah, still place an emphasis on Christmas.

But what has Hallmark actually done to promote fascism or endorse antisemitism? What tangible proof does Marcotte have that isn't all conjecture and dog-whistles? The most concrete claim that can be made hinges on the companies spurious reasoning for pulling an advert more the wedding company Zola, whose ad featured a lesbian kiss. While Hallmark claimed that they pulled the advert because it featured, "overt public displays of affection" critics were quick to point out that Hallmark's own programming features much the same. Hallmark then backtracked and apologized shortly afterward. Aside from this though, Marcotte's claims don't seem to have much else to stand on.

4Chan Catches a Killer

By Mike J.

Those internet sleuths at website 4Chan are back at it again. 4chan began the hunt after a poster from the subreddit The_Donald received a disturbing private message from a Reddit user named LoveThisLife0101. This private message detailed how the sender worked in a retirement/care home and was systematically killing the Trump supporters who he was taking care through a mix of willful negligence and inaction. This Reddit user's comment history shows a longstanding hatred of President Donald Trump and his supporters as well as documented harassment and intimidation against other Reddit users. Internet detectives were quick to note various alt accounts belonging to the Reddit user and were able to figure out details based on the clues he left behind and slip-ups he made. While the hacker known as 4Chan believes they have the right man and have since then alerted the authorities, only time will tell if they have the right person and if any crime has been committed at all.

McGowan says it’s OK to Flirt

Stapler

Actress Rose McGowan is speaking out against critics of the #metoo movement who claim that it is making people afraid, with possible accusations of sexual assault behind every flirtatious move. She dismisses the idea that the movement has made it harder for men and women to flirt with each other.

McGowan said: “If you’re not grabbing people against their will, you should be OK. If you’re not seeking revenge because this girl doesn’t like you, you should be OK[...]It’s fine to flirt but it’s another thing when someone buys you a drink and thinks they own your hour or that night.”

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-7834651/Rose-McGowan-hits-critics-claim-metoo-makes-hard-men-flirt-women.html

Hillary Clinton, First-Woman-Something

Stapler

Hillary Clinton is to be the first woman to be a chancellor of Queen’s University, Belfast, Northern Ireland. She tweeted:

It’s my great privilege to become @QUBelfast's 11th—and first female—chancellor. It's a place I have great fondness for and have grown a strong relationship with over the years, and I’m proud to be an ambassador for its excellence. https://twitter.com/QUBelfast/status/1212672033806569473

The role, which is mostly a ceremonial one, lasts five years. The chancellor often presides at graduation ceremonies and acts as an ambassador for the university.

Hillary Clinton previously received an honorary degree from Queen’s in 2018, but has been visiting and building connections in Ireland for decades.

Stephen Prenter, the chair of the QUB senate, said, "Secretary Clinton has made a considerable contribution to Northern Ireland and as an internationally recognised leader will be an incredible advocate for Queen's and an inspirational role model for the Queen's community.”

The concept is lava - society's aversion to seeing how #WomensActionsMatter | HBR Talk 114 2020-01-02T09:19:41+00:00close

What did you guys get from the interwebs for Christmas? I got wimminwurst and lobster! Yum!

It started with one guy’s accurate comment that choosing the wrong woman can ruin a man’s life. Unless twitter was hiding the rest of a conversation from me, that was just a stand-alone statement he posted - an expression of thought, which had been retweeted enough to garner some attention.

Then feminists found it.

One retweeted it with the whataboutism, “choosing the wrong man can end a woman’s life.” That comment was drawn to my attention, so I mimicked her, retweeting with the comment that this was true in the reverse, too, accompanied by some links to evidence.

So we’ve established at this point in the conversation that choosing the wrong partner can ruin or even end a person’s life. People should be entitled to vet potential partners for character, and in fact expected to do so. Yay for intellectual freedom and personal responsibility!

That wasn’t satisfactory to the feminist, who flounced and whined about the discussion, eventually claiming men only talk about their experiences with bad women as a retort to women’s discussions about bad men. When it was pointed out to her that in this discussion, she’d done the gender reverse of exactly what she was accusing, she got upset, because god forbid anyone object to her choice to do something she objects to men doing.

She flounced and bounced, throwing a spectacular tantrum and blocking to avoid further responses… then sent in the reserves. Feminist 2 used shaming language and balked when she was made fun of for it, quickly disappearing behind feminist 3. Feminist 3 took me on a long, largely random journey in which she picked up feminist 1’s wimminworsting and ran with it, trying to make the entire discussion, which - remember - had started with a point about men’s experiences with women they shouldn’t choose to date, all about female victims of partner homicide and how she felt that reflects on the entire male population. Attempts at rationally discussing the phenomenon of family violence only freaked her out.

For example, as discussed in HBR Talk 113, Why is equally shared parenting legislation so important, we know that female-initiated violence is the majority - more than ⅔, in fact - of family violence, both in intimate partner violence and child abuse. Research also shows a strong correlation between female initiation of partner violence and injury to the female partner in a bi-directionally violent domestic dispute.

Trying to to get a feminist to discuss a man’s defensive violence as a consequence of a woman’s violent assault on him is like trying to coax a cat into a bathtub full of water. The degree of twisting and verbal contortion to avoid seeing the woman’s agency in such circumstances hit gold medal level mental gymnastics. Those of us on the men’s issues side of the discussion couldn’t possibly just be talking about important considerations when addressing family violence. We must be saying real men know how to keep their women under control! We couldn’t care about children’s experiences of abuse… we must be saying all mothers are bad!

The troller-coaster took us on a wild ride through various forms of family and neighborhood violence, citation of statistics, discussion of social phenomena and its potential causes… and every point or counterpoint that was made, she hedged, twisted, fled, and raised an army of strawmen in her replies to avoid one particular element of the conversation: Recognition that women’s actions can have consequences, and women have the power prevent those consequences by exercising mindfulness in their choices. She reacted to that as if it was lava, jumping from comfortable talking point to comfortable talking point in order to avoid touching it at all.

The same thing happens when discussing reproduction in relation to men’s issues. Child support and paternal surrender are directly related to the variety of available choices by which women can take control of their fertility. Discussion of the adversity inflicted on men by existing law is answered with victim signalling on behalf of single moms, as if those options don’t exist. In the 21st century western world, no woman ever has to experience an unplanned pregnancy as a result of consensual sex… but should we point that out in response to that victim signalling, we’re the devil!

Argue with opponents of paternal surrender, or with abortion advocates, and you’ll find that women’s role as agents in the conception of their own children is, again, lava. Even in the men’s rights community the way we discuss pregnancy and custody issues ignores that agency. What do we hear in discussion? Not that any woman and man conceived together, but that he got her pregnant… and even if the father doesn’t take all of the blame, the mother is still exempt. She falls pregnant, right? It wasn’t because of anything she did. She was just minding her own business, walking down the street, when whoops… she slipped on a treacherous patch of pregnancy, and down she went! No sex was involved in the making of that baby. Why, the poor girl was visited by the insidious knock-up fairy! Have some sympathy, you misogynistic heathens! Don’t you know motherhood is sacred?

We can’t discuss father’s rights without butting up against the deadbeat dad myth, which can’t be debunked without pointing out who initiates most divorce, and how frivolous the reasons often are. The response is not to examine those factors, but again, to call us misogynistic for considering them. One cannot point out that it’s not a man’s fault his wife was disloyal with another man, lest one get accused of calling all women sluts.

Discussion of due-process in criminal court means having to recognize that although the crime does occur, some rape allegations result from misidentification of the perpetrator, and some from outright lies. Try to explain how such mistakes and lies can lead to heavy consequences for the wrongly accused, and feminists will try to transfer the debater’s blame of liars and bad systems to all women, or to female victims of male-perpetrated rape… and there’s that nickname again: Misogynist! And it’s totally not misogynistic for feminists to lump false accusers in with real rape victims. It’s just misogynistic for us to differentiate between them.

Bring up female perpetrators, and we’re in a whole new doghouse. It can’t be as bad as when men do it, right? The personal boundary and bodily autonomy violation can’t be just as traumatic, because women don’t have that kind of power! And certainly if the victim is made a father against his will, we can’t talk about the can of worms THAT opens up for him… nor can we speak from the standpoint of viewing his child support obligation to his rapist as a financial punishment for being raped. That’s just too much culpability to impose on the woman who raped him, and of course the lot of us are stark raving misogynists for for talking about it. And we’re probably also gay.

This is one of the biggest blind spots in our society, where personal agency and accountability intersect with femininity. It’s not like that because people can’t see it, or because people can’t recognize it. It’s because they’re averse to looking at it. It’s like staring into the bright, glaring sun. It hurts to contemplate it, and people can’t stand to focus their attention on it long enough to really see it. They’ll look anywhere to avoid the burning, painful reality.

The question is, what can we do about that?

Why is equally shared parenting legislation so important? | HBR Talk 113 2019-12-19T10:29:34+00:00close

Feminist organizations have spent more time than I've been alive attacking the traditional family structure, in particular demonizing fathers and attempting to separate them from their children. They've used the stereotype of the family-abandoning deadbeat dad to push for concessions and benefits for single custodial mothers, lied about domestic violence rates to provide women with tools to use in custody battles, and promoted the idea that single mother households are better than intact families.

They've fought against all forms of joint custody legislation that would foster cooperation between parents in the event divorce cannot be avoided, mostly by portraying fathers as a group as deadbeats and abusers, as if that is just men's normal behavior. They portray men as a threat to their own wives and children, all for the sake of breaking up families and making as many women (and their children) as possible dependent on the welfare state. This has been the National Organization for Women’s first line of attack against all forms of shared custody going back into the 70s.

Their narrative has no basis in fact

Men are not the ones predominantly breaking up their families. According to Michael Rosenfeld's 2017 report, Who wants the Breakup? Gender and Breakup in Heterosexual Couples, more divorce is initiated by women. They're not all initiating it over abuse as NOW's anti-shared-parenting initiatives would indicate. It's mostly over resentment of the balance in housework responsibilities, and much of that is due to feminist narratives about gender roles. In other words, feminists have told women to be dissatisfied with their marriages, and then blamed men when women became dissatisfied and dissolved their marriages. This comes from a feminist-oriented report which labels the responsibility of marriage proposal a “privilege” because it falls on the boyfriend, and describes him as “controlling the marriage decision,” as if women can’t also propose, or say no when a man proposes. Imagine how unflattering this report would have been to divorcing women without that low-agency outlook!


While this does not mean that women should be automatically presumed malicious for choosing to end a marriage, it certainly doesn't back the feminist narrative of the family-abandoning deadbeat-dad. The state’s primary response to divorce has been to discourage men from leaving their families via penalties that benefit their ex-wives, but no amount of that punishment of men is going to stop women from initiating divorce.

NOW’s narrative on child abuse as a factor in divorce is just as wrong. Health and human services data has consistently shown for over 20 years that more child abuse is perpetrated by mothers than by fathers. (https://www.acf.hhs.gov/cb/research-data-technology/statistics-research/child-maltreatment)

Let’s look, for example, at the 2017 report, Child Maltreatment, published by the Children's Bureau. According to table 3-17, Victims by Relationship to Their Perpetrators, in about 2/3 of the number of cases involving one parent abusing their children, that parent is the mother. From that same report, according to Table 4–4, Child Fatalities by Relationship to Their Perpetrators, in about 2/3 of cases involving one parent killing their child, that parent is also the mother. The perpetration ratios given in these statistics are consistent with previous reports.

Clearly this does not mean all mothers are bad or abusive. In fact, abuse itself is rare. According to Exhibit 3–E, Child Victimization Rates, 2013–2017, part of that same 2017 report, the national child victimization rate in the US is approximately 9 out of 1000 children. It also doesn’t mean fathers never abuse. In both of the previous citations, the other ⅓ of the abuse described is perpetrated by fathers, and that shouldn’t be ignored, either. However, the data certainly contradicts the feminist narrative that father involvement in particular puts children at risk of abuse.

In fact, in the case of either sex of parent, one of the best preventative measures against abuse of the family’s children may be the other parent's regular involvement. The best case scenario for both families would be for the state to do everything it can to foster family unity and cooperative parenting - preferably in intact households, by not financially incentivising divorce... or when divorce can’t be prevented, through using equally shared parenting as the state’s default arrangement and not financially incentivising parents to try to deny each other custody.

NOW’s male-demonizing narratives on domestic violence are also not a valid excuse to routinely separate fathers from their children. Research does not back them up in this area, either.

Here I will reference Rates of Bi-directional versus Uni-directional Intimate Partner Violence Across Samples, Sexual Orientations, and Race/Ethnicities: A Comprehensive Review, by Jennifer Langhinrichsen-Rohling, et al. This is a review of 50 studies that reported rates of bi-directional versus uni-directional violence. The researchers found that on average, these studies indicated that 4 out of 5 to 5 out of 6 households were nonviolent, that more than half (to almost 2/3) of household violence was two-way violence, and that in the under half to ⅓ of remaining households, more than half to more than ⅔ of violence was perpetrated by the female partner. In other words, women are perpetrators in most households where family violence takes place. This doesn't mean women are too violent to have custody of their kids, but that families in which the father unilaterally abuses the mother - the stereotype feminists use against equally shared parenting legislation - represent a minority in family violence, and an extreme minority in families overall. At most, they are about 1/3 of 1/2 of 1/5 of all families, or about 1 in 30 households. Some of the research reviewed in the study found it to be even more rare than that.

But what about those bi-directionally violent households? Opponents of equally shared parenting would argue that they can’t be bi-directionally violent if the men aren’t violent, and that the violent women in these relationships are only defending themselves against the men’s initiation... but the data doesn’t back that argument, either. The same report cites research that included direct observation of reciprocation of violence when initiated by men and women during a videotaped discussion. That study, Observed initiation and reciprocity of physical aggression in young at risk couples, is discussed on pages 14 & 15 of the report. It stated that “Of the 49 observation sessions across the four time points involving mutual physical aggression, 71.4% involved men reciprocating women initiated aggression. Conversely, 28.6% involved women reciprocating men initiated aggression.” In other words, when rates of initiation by gender were measured, women initiated about ¾ of the time.

That puts women as the primary aggressors in most family violence, whether we are discussing child abuse or Intimate Partner Violence. Again, recalling that these types of violence are rare among the overall population and most divorce isn’t caused by them, this information does not mean that women should be removed from their children’s lives based on the same arguments feminists make about men. It does, however, fully discredit the feminist narrative that men should be removed from their children’s lives based on mere allegations of abuse, or on belief that limiting custody to the mother would protect children from being subjected to parental violence, or exposed to partner violence.

On the other hand, removal of the father’s nurturing influence can itself be a form of child abuse. The Father Involvement Initiative and the Father Involvement Research Alliance compiled information from hundreds of studies on the effects of father involvement in their children’s lives. Most research found that children benefit the most from growing up in intact homes, but even in instances of divorce, father involvement has been shown to have benefits, and father absence to have damaging impact on children’s welfare. This begins in early childhood when father involvement aids a child’s development of social skills and problem-solving ability.

School-age children of involved fathers perform better academically, show more involvement with their academic community and have fewer discipline issues. They also have fewer social issues and are more likely to resolve them without seeking a teacher's assistance. Father involvement also makes kids less likely to go along with other children in making choices that will get them into trouble. As they get older, kids with involved fathers have better school attendance and are more likely to graduate. This trend continues through post-secondary education and is noted to contribute to career success and psychological wellbeing in adulthood.

Kids of involved fathers grow up to be more tolerant of others and more likely to have successful marriages and long-term friendships. They're less likely to to engage in self-destructive behaviors such as truancy, substance abuse, or criminal activity. They’re less likely to end up in jail or become unwed parents… more likely to be successful, law-abiding, financially independent partners in intact families, rather than live in poverty and rely government aid. They're less likely to experience depression and anxiety issues, less at risk for being abused, and less likely to commit suicide. Our society is just starting to acknowledge and discuss the current epidemic of male suicide, including suicide among boys. How much of this problem is caused by the exclusion of fathers from their sons’ lives? What other social ills would be reduced or resolved if fathers’ involvement with their children was not widely hindered by custody arrangements? Would we see a reduction in crime, unwed parenthood, poverty, and welfare dependence? Would we see a reduction in the social conditions that contribute to the phenomenon of family violence?

In other words, could exclusion or eviction of fathers from their children’s lives be creating a self-perpetuating social dysfunction machine, and if so, isn’t it the state’s responsibility to prevent itself from being a cause of this problem?

False Accusation India

By Mike J.

A 27-year-old transport driver from Kerala, India was accused of sexual assault after a 13-year-old girl's hand made contact with his shoulder. The man was immediately booked under the POCSO Act, (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences). Two other children travelling with the man provided testimony that indicated nothing sexual took place between the man and the child. While recording her statement the alleged victim in the matter mentioned that the police had tutored her on what to say. Given this new evidence, the judge threw out the case. Justice Alexander Thomas had this to say on the matter, "Before parting of this case, this court would like to observe that in a case of sexual offence where an accused is falsely implicated, the real victim in such false cases is not the ‘alleged victim’ of sexual violence, but the accused, who has been falsely implicated in the crime of sexual violence, which has been instituted falsely. This aspect of the matter has to be borne in mind by the investigating officers, prosecutors as well as by the courts."

The Real #MeToo Blindspot

Stapler

In #metoo news, 50 cent has spoken out against Oprah Winfrey, accusing her of only highlighting black men in her activism. In an Instagram post with an old photo of Oprah and music mogul Russell Simmons posing together he wrote:

“I don’t understand why Oprah is going after black men. No Harvey Weinstein, No Epstein, just Micheal Jackson and Russell Simmons. This shit is sad. Gale hit R Kelly with the death blow documentary. Every time I hear Micheal Jackson I don’t know whether to dance or think about the little boys butts. These documentaries are publicly convicting their targets, it makes them guilty till proven innocent.”

This is in response to Oprah’s upcoming AppleTV+ documentary which reportedly details allegations of sexual misconduct against Russell Simmons. From USA Today: “Over a dozen women have come forward with allegations against Simmons, with one unidentified woman filing a $10 million lawsuit in March of 2018 accusing him of rape. The lawsuit is pending after Simmons tried and failed to get it dismissed in August. A California judge ruled that Simmons did not supply sufficient evidence to support his claim that the statute of limitations on the alleged rape had run out.”

While 50 cent may be correct in pointing out such documentaries “make them guilty till proven innocent”, there is a much bigger blind spot no one is talking about.

There are many men in the entertainment industry with tales of molestation in their past that do not get the same attention. Even R. Kelly was allegedly molested by his late old sister, Theresa. His brother Carey Kelly, who was also preyed upon by Theresa described it as a ““Catch 22” because he understood why his sister had to babysit him and his older brothers due to his mother having to work and go to school”. In an interview, Carey said that he “started crying” and he was “kind of scared of her” when his sister forced him to perform oral sex.

Another, DJ Ghost, grew up a very vulnerable kid. He describes his mother having 10 kids to 10 different dads. While his mother was in jail he was molested by one of her thirty year old friends he was staying with. He was only twelve. It happened again a year later with another one of his mother’s friends, saying he was crying the whole time he was molested by her. He did not tell his mother in fear of hurting his already vulnerable family-ties.

Another, Tech N9ne brags he was molested at fourteen by his seventh grade teacher. And Deray Davis says he was molested by two thirty-year-old women when he was only eleven.

Children, when growing up in an environment without a biological father present, are vulnerable to predators disguised as family friends, mentors, teachers and even family members because of the epidemic of fatherlessness, and Oprah wants to make it a women’s issue while 50 cent is trying to frame it as a race issue. This is the reason they will never actually address the real problem. It is a men’s issue.

Sixth Circuit Court Upholds Narrow Definition of Sexual Harassment

Andrew G

Title IX has been causing mayhem on campuses for decades. With the foray into resolving accusations of sexual harassment, among other things, campuses have set up kangaroo courts to try to supposedly address those issues on their campuses. However, those campuses have been in hot water recently because their kangaroo courts have been neglecting basic elements of due process.

The Supreme Court had ruled in Davis v. Monroe County Board of Education previously that harassment needed to be “so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive, and that so undermines and detracts from the victims’ educational experience, that the victims are effectively denied equal access to an institution’s resources and opportunities.” The Obama era Department of Education “Dear Colleague” Letters which set up colleges to railroad accused students did not use this definition when defining harassment and instead was broader.

A recent ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit recently upheld the Davis decision. From the decision of Alice M. Batchelder, “A victim of ‘student-on-student sexual harassment’ has a private cause of action against the school under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX), 86 Stat. 373, codified as 20 U.S.C. § 1681, et seq., based on the formula first set out in Davis v. Monroe County Board of Education, 526 U.S. 629 (1999). Under that formula, the sexual harassment must meet a certain standard and the evidence must satisfy the elements for an intentional tort. Our particular focus in this appeal is on the requirements that the harassment must be ‘pervasive’ and the school’s response must ‘cause’ the injury.”

We are still waiting for new guidance from the Betsy DeVos led U.S. Department of Education since her administration rescinded the Obama Era guidelines. It is expected that those rules will be released before the end of the year. Democrats in the House are trying to stop that before it happens with some legislation.

CNN Mad At Memes And Clickbait Again

By Mike J.

To no surprise, CNN is angry at something...again. This time it's supposed fake YouTube accounts which CNN claims are posing as American news outlets. These alleged fake news YouTube accounts piggyback off of YouTube's algorithms to get themselves listed as news content and automatically sorted into playlists, or so claims CNN. While CNN doesn't provide any examples of these videos, they claims that edited screenshots of their news program is a huge issue. A spokesperson for CNN stated, "Manipulation of our brand and intellectual property with the specific intent to misinform the public is an incredibly serious problem that platforms need to urgently address. Platforms like YouTube bear a responsibility to manage the integrity of the content they deliver to audiences. That's something journalists know and have been doing effectively for generations. It's a core difference between platforms and publishers." But I'm sure that given YouTube's flawless track record on cleaning up such matters, they'll have things fixed and sorted out soon enough. It's important that we remove from YouTube these peddlers of fake news and those trying to deceive the American people, because after all; that's CNN's job.

HPV Vaccination Advised to be Given to Girls First

Stapler

The World Health Organization is trying to stop the vaccination of boys against he human papillomavirus (HPV) until all girls who need it get it first.

From the bmj:

The recommendations from WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on immunisation (SAGE), come just months after the UK began immunising boys aged 12-13 against the virus. SAGE was deeply concerned that the current HPV vaccine shortage could result in failure to introduce or sustain programmes in some countries, particularly those with a high burden of cervical cancer.”

Although HPV is the cause of almost all cervical cancers (affecting women) it is also responsible for other anogenital cancers and oropharyngeal cancers which affect both sexes. It has been estimated that 4.5% of all cancers worldwide are attributable to HPV: 8.6% in women and 0.8% in men. From the paper “Worldwide burden of cancer attributable to HPV by site, country and HPV type” Martel et al report: “Cervix accounts for 83% of HPV‐attributable cancer, two‐thirds of which occur in less developed countries. Other HPV‐attributable anogenital cancer includes 8,500 vulva; 12,000 vagina; 35,000 anus (half occurring in men) and 13,000 penis. In the head and neck, HPV‐attributable cancers represent 38,000 cases of which 21,000 are oropharyngeal cancers occurring in more developed countries.”

If it weren't for double standards, feminists wouldn't have any | HBR Talk 112 2019-12-12T17:48:16+00:00close

My son was born via emergency c-section, but if I wanted to be dramatic, I could tell you that I once had an entire human being trapped inside my abdomen, and a rescue team had to cut him out with a knife before his struggles to escape ended up killing us both.

Obviously, phrasing and other creative aspects of descriptive speech can have a profound effect on your perception of what is being described. Any professional in advertising, marketing, or politics can tell you that… but why am I talking about it?

That’d be because a recent article that was drawn to my attention by some of my fellow MRAs got me thinking about it in relation to feminist double standards.

“I’m Not Jealous; I’m Territorial,” by Helen Ellis, published on December 6th in a medium blog called Gay Mag is a gymnastic exercise in the use of creative description to try to make emotional abuse of one’s spouse sound cute, feminine, and most of all, acceptable.

In the article, she describes Amazon’s personal assistant bot Alexa as “another woman,” then explains why she would never allow such a thing in her home. She would actually be jealous of it. She compares the bot to the wide-eyed, blinking I dream of Jeanie character who gives her man everything he wants - a stereotype with which a real woman couldn’t compete. She peppers the rest of her article with a cutesy repetition of the word “blink” to maintain this comparison as a theme. You know, because the bot has a light that blinks, and one of Jeanie’s character traits is that doe-eyed, innocent blink. It’s probably the cleverest word-trick in the article.

Don’t worry about her husband’s loss of shopping bot rights, though. He can’t have a lot of things. He can’t have men’s magazines, for instance, because of course, she’s jealous of the photographs in them.
He can’t have sovereignty over his own existence.

“If my husband cheats on me in my dreams,” she writes, “I wake up furious. Or I used to. A few years back, I made it a New Year’s resolution to stop chastising him as soon as he opened his chocolaty brown eyes because, as he has said: he didn’t DO anything.”

Hell, the poor guy can’t even have a salad. Helen the Adorably Crazy Wife went on to describe food service workers as an equivalent to sex-dungeon mistresses, as she tried to excuse being personally offended at her husband’s healthy eating choices. She compared her husband’s interest in something she didn’t normally make him for dinner to his being interested in something she didn’t normally do in bed, and even described quizzing him over whether, since he wanted to switch up his dinner routine with the occasional salad, he also wanted to switch up their bedroom routine with some BDSM.

That blink is starting to sound more appropriate as a place-holder for his expression of shock and confusion at his wife’s bizarre leaps in logic. She sounds totally unhinged.

This complete and utter whack-job is emotionally abusing her husband over her own insecurities, and presenting her description of that as “clever jokes of a wife who takes her love just a little too far.” (Awe, ain’t that cute? She’s got him tied up in the basement! Don’t you wish someone loved you like that?)

Imagine if a man wrote such an article about his wife or girlfriend. Feminists would bury the publisher in angry hate mail about perpetuating dangerous stereotypes, promoting male entitlement, and glorifying domestic violence. The host admins would never hear the end of it until they’d canceled the publication, even if an apology was issued, and the writer would be lucky if the only consequence he faced was the end of his writing career.

Helen’s article got a few comments about how crazy and abusive she sounded.
It is still featured by Gay Mag so those commenters didn’t go beyond posting under the article. Aside from that, it didn’t find its way into much public discussion. Complaints about it normalizing toxic femininity and abusive behavior certainly haven’t trended on social media, because hell… everyone was busy freaking out over an ad featuring a wife who was excited about receiving an expensive, luxury piece of exercise equipment for Christmas. Clearly, the twitterati decided, her abusive husband is forcing her to meet an unrealistic body standard, and the actor who portrayed him must be outed as a tool of the Patriarchy! So, “I’m not jealous” went mostly unnoticed. How can anyone think of criticizing an overly enthusiastic housewife when there’s a man with no discernable motives to demonize?

Another article was drawn to my attention this morning. The double standard of the Overenthusiastic Spouse is bad, but this one really takes the salad.

“Study provides new insights into sexual coercion by women,” writes Eric W. Dolan of PsyMag. For once, the article contained a link to the October 2019 study, Sexual Coercion by Women: The Influence of Pornography and Narcissistic and Histrionic Personality Disorder Traits, by Hughes, Brewer, and Khan. Writer Eric presented the highlights:

The researchers anonymously surveyed 142 women (aged 16–53 years) regarding sexual coercion, pornography use, and personality disorder traits. About 35% of the women admitted to engaging in nonverbal forms of sexual coercion, including persistent kissing and touching, or taking off their own or their target’s clothes despite them refusing sex. Nearly 16% of women also admitted to emotional manipulation and deception, such as repeatedly asking, using lies, questioning the target’s sexuality, or threatening to break up. About 5 percent of women indicated they had exploited an intoxicated person, while just one participant reported using physical force or threats.”

He went on to note that “women who agreed with statements such as “I have rearranged my schedule so that I would be able to view pornography online without being disturbed” were more likely to report engaging in these forms of sexual coercion” and that “Participants who scored higher on measure of narcissistic and histrionic personality were also more likely to admit to exploitation of the intoxicated,” but that these findings can’t be extended to claiming porn causes these behaviors, because the findings are correlational.

The study’s authors presumed the prevalence of female sexual coercion mostly uncharted territory due to lack of research. They then went on to pay homge to the feminist talking point that a large body of research shows that men are more likely to engage in sexual coercion than women. Recall, however, that the same study found that about a third of women (35%) admitted to engaging in at least nonverbal sexual coercion of some type. When taking intoxication-facilitated coercion into consideration, other research has placed that number as high as 51%. These numbers are not significantly different than the numbers attributed to male self-reporting of similar behavior. They’re just differently emphasized.

In the world of sexual violence prevalence research reporting, if 35% of women are reported to have admitted to a predatory behavior, that’s only 35%, as opposed to when 35% of men admit to the same behavior, when it’s over a third of their population. Both statements say the same thing, but they sure don’t create the same impression! Then, if that 35% has admitted to a broad range of behaviors that include some mild and some serious infractions, the mild end will be emphasized when women’s admissions are under discussion, while the more serious end will be emphasized when discussing male perpetration. If the motive for perpetration is the same for both sexes, it’ll be described differently to attribute malice to men, and lack of agency to women. For example, if perpetrators blame their sexual impulses on their targets, men are presumed to offend out of interest in gaining power and control over the victim, while women are said to be “seeking interpersonal connection because they feel out of control,” because using sexual coercion to make a guy your emotional tampon is totally not about gaining power and control over him!

And, as this more recent paper shows, if a factor can’t be spun in a less derogatory light for women than for men, it gets swept under the rug when discussing women. While we hear all the time from feminists that porn interest among men is a sign and a cause of predatory, misogynistic attitudes, when women rearrange their lives around their porn viewing habits, there’s definitely an association but well… we just can’t draw any conclusions from it!

Make no mistake, folks. This certainly isn’t about gatekeeping the concept of sexual violence. Nobody is trying to prevent any changes to the social image that female perpetrators might have. Feminist researchers are not jealously guarding their female victim, male perpetrator narrative.

They’re just territorial.

Blink.

GAB Goes Gonzo

By Mike J.

In one of the most impressive displays of self-sabotage ever, former free-speech centric website GAB has picked a very strange kill to die on; porn. In the past weeks GAB founder, Andrew Torba, has doubled and tripled down on his crusade to not only cleanse his platform of pornography, but to alert all of it's evils. Torba has gone so far as to align himself with Indiana Congressman and anti-porn activist Jim Banks. The same Jim Banks that wrote to Attorney General William Barr asking Barr to use existing anti-obscenity laws to censor porn...for the kids, of course. The letter urges Attorney General Barr to, "Bring prosecutions against the major producers and distributors of such [pornographic] material." Though Banks fails to mention the specifics of his plan and exactly what type of pornography he plans on targeting.

The Peloton Bike Ad Disaster

By Mike J.

Just in time for the holiday season, the fitness oriented company Peloton released a short advert to show off their exercise bicycles. The 30 second ad tells the story of a husband who buys a Peloton exercise bike for his wife who then proceeds to document her use of it for the next year, noting how it has changed her life for the better, and thanking her husband. To Peloton's absolute shock, their rather innocuous and somewhat saccharine advert was deemed sexist and misogynist. Internet offend-a-trons were quick to lambaste the company and even harass the actors that stared in the advert. Countless parodies of the company and product popped up as well. The controversy even affected the stock prices of the company for a moment. But as the outrage reached it's half-life and the mob begins to dissipate, Peloton finds it's stock price back where it once was and finds more eyes on their product than they had this time last week.

The Patriarchy Fails Again

Stapler

Researchers at the University of Guelph attempted to test a hypothesis that fathers perpetuated the ‘boys don’t cry’ bias. To do this, they had 600 Canadian and American parents participate in a study where they were asked to sort images of children between the ages of 8-12 conveying either sadness or anger in either a pleasant or unpleasant category.

Psychology professor Kristel Thomassin told the Globe and Mail, “We expected that both moms and dads would favour girls crying over boys crying. That’s based on the stereotype that boys shouldn’t cry. [...] We did find that – but only for moms.”

They reported that fathers generally showed no bias when sorting pictures displaying sadness or anger but mothers favored girls crying over boys crying and had a similar response when it came to anger. In other words, the mothers in the study generally found that girls expressing anger or sadness was more pleasant than boys expressing those emotions.

This MAY be a reflection of mother’s acceptance of emotional expression from girls over boys. However, it is not a good reflection of how the parents behave in everyday life. Prof. Thomassin also includes that this may simply reflect their awareness of, and responsiveness to, cultural stereotypes.

...

Damn patriarchy and… *throws dart* their perpetuation of gender stereotypes they do not actually hold.

The Globe and Mail’s article follows with comments from a Toronto-based parenting expert, Alyson Schafer:

“A lot of times when our kids show certain emotionality we get triggered and we don’t like it, so we want them to change their emotions because we can’t handle it as parents,” she said.

The difficulty is made even more challenging in light of gender stereotypes.

“The standing tradition is in order to be a male you must not be vulnerable, you must not share or talk about your emotions,” Ms. Schafer said. “We’re aware of it, but it doesn’t mean we’re walking the talk yet.”

Australian Senator Defends Men

Stapler

Australian senator Pauline Hanson spoke out against claims made by Sherele Moody that firefighters coming back from bush-fires were more likely to beat their wives. In a speech she made in parliament last week she said:

It’s not often that the dedicated and hardworking men of this country collectively get a pat on the back, as they deserve, so I’d like to do that now. Well done, men. You deserve to be honoured. I thank you.

It is more often that we lift up women in this country. Men are widely regarded as toxic. That is wrong. The extreme majority of men are not toxic. They are good, they are caring. [...]

While the firefighters, who are mostly male, were battling the blazes we had feminists telling us that after they fight the fires, no doubt exhausted, covered in sweat, ash and soot, and with their skin singed from the heat, they go home and beat their partners.

What an idiotic suggestion. [...]

I believe in what is fair and just and I am sick and tired of this constant criticism of men in Australia, especially if they’re white. [...]

Why is there such an ongoing attack on the men of this country, especially those who show strength and masculinity. […] Well, I’m not going to man-bash. There is no reason to do it. The vast majority of men are not toxic. They are loving, caring, respectful and hardworking and it’s mostly men who step up and face the flames, extreme heat … to fight the bushfires.”

Senator Hanson went on to quote the percentages of women in gritty but needed professions. Only 9.6% of the firefighting force is female, 3.4% of the “truckies” and 13.9% of coal miners. She continued, “Feminists should be ashamed at themselves for letting themselves down in this field. I’ve never seen a feminist recruiting campaign to get more women behind the wheels of a truck. Maybe it’s too demanding, not glamorous enough, so they’re happy for the men to do it.”

Senator Hanson closed her speech by reciting more statistics, “Each day in Australia, six men take their lives and 82 men call an ambulance due to suicidal thoughts or attempts. Prostate cancer kills more men than breast cancer kills women. Two thirds of homeless who sleep rough are men. 95% of workplace fatalities are men. One in three domestic violence victims are men.”

#MenAreHuman - HBR Talk 111 2019-12-05T19:40:36+00:00close

Are we allowed to say that men are human?

Are men allowed to be human?

Most of all, are men allowed to be human all the time, out loud, in public, regardless of whether it’s convenient for the people around them?

Tuesday on HBR News, Brian, the two Mikes, and I discussed another case in the heartbreaking phenomenon of fathers who have committed suicide after being forcibly evicted from their children’s lives by the mother’s choice. Thirty-six year old Jamie Bull hanged himself after his ex-wife barred him from seeing their 3 children at Christmas. According to his girlfriend Stephanie Clayton, his ex-wife had weaponized the fact that he had sought mental health treatment, a complaint that she had only made a custody issue after he’d begun seeing Miss Clayton.

In discussion, I got the case mixed up with another which had recently been discussed on Twitter, that of Dr. Amir Saeed, whose last words to his children were shared in a gut-wrenching video, which I had seen after it was highlighted by Fathers4Justice on twitter, in which his valiant effort to sound bright and cheerful for his children cannot cover his pain, especially when, as the short clip progresses, he chokes up. Fighting tears. Dr. Saeed, gently but frantically reminded his children that he would never stop loving them. He reminded them to be good… even reminded them to be good “for mummy.” His suicide, a response to being denied contact with his children, shocked his academic community, and his family, and was widly discussed on social media as an avoidable tragedy resulting from the court’s egregious act of barring him from seeing his children.

My mistake was in remembering the similarity in details of the cases, and not expecting two cases like this to make the news so close together. I should have known better. According to Matt O’Connor of Fathers4Justice, speaking to the Daily Mail in the wake of Mr. Bull’s suicide, "We know that suicide in fathers being prevented from seeing their kids is a real issue. We hear of four a month but that's just the tip of the iceberg.”

Both of these cases involved fathers desperately trying to preserve their relationships with their children, who, upon defeat, committed suicide, and both suicides were attributed to mental health issues - the first, as reported in the news, and the second, by feminists responding to the news.

For most, it’s easy to recognize the potentially deadly impact of removing from the life of a parent that which is his or her most important and valued condition: One’s relationship with one’s children. Parental dedication is not just an attitude or a passion. It is an identity-determining factor. This is true whether one is a mother, or a father, a fact that is obvious to most of society, but not to intersectional feminists. Their response to discussion of Dr. Saeed’s suicide was atrocious. Among those who offered the suggestion that mental health treatment should be substituted for custody reform in such cases was a male feminist whose initial comment on the video was callous gloating that the professor had just ensured he’d never see his kids again, as if a court ruling that he couldn’t see them hadn’t done that already.

When confronted about his flippant indifference to this man’s suffering, our critic parroted the usual intersectional feminist arguments about toxic masculinity and mental health care. These boil down to promoting the use of therapy to teach men to live with this kind of abuse rather than reforming the law and policies that create the conditions that are leading to their suicides.

From there, he engaged in Olympic level mental gymnastics to avoid discussing the incident, the issue, or any of his movement’s dogma in terms that allow for recognition of men’s vulnerability to the psychological impact of adversity. Yes, men’s feelings matter, but not now. Not in this circumstance. In this circumstance, the man’s feelings are invalid, and the conditions that led to them have to be entirely his fault.

It couldn’t be that his pain was a result of actions taken against him, because a man is not allowed to object when such actions are taken by, or on behalf of, a woman. He is allowed no mental anguish over consequences he suffers as a result of woman’s choices. The stoicism and silence that intersectional feminists condemn as “toxic masculinity” become requirements the moment his complaints pit his self-interest against hers. He can’t have a profound attachment to anything she wants to take away from him, because if she wants it, any suggestion that she can’t have it is misogyny. Any pain he experiences over the loss must be caused by a flaw in him. Clearly, this man was possessed of toxic masculinity, a demon which can only be exorcised by the tender ministrations of a therapist armed with intersectional feminist dogma and rhetoric. That’d solve the problem, right?

Well, I’d suggest you ask Jamie Bull about that.

Except, uh… you can’t, because his ex-wife used his mental health helpseeking as an excuse to keep him away from his children, the very thing our mentally superior critic suggested would have solved Dr. Saeed’s problem, and that led to Mr. Bull’s suicide.

But why would the court allow that? If he was getting help instead of ignoring his symptoms, shouldn’t that have been evidence in his favor?

Not according to feminists. While they promote mental health treatment as a solution for everything, they’ve also put a lot of energy into demonizing men with mental health conditions, portraying them as bombs waiting to go off, regardless of whether the condition in question merits that narrative. This attitude only increases if a man’s condition is situational depression over unapproved causes, like social isolation, loss of a relationship, or financial hardship resulting from obligations imposed as part of a divorce.

To feminists, if social isolation hurts a man, it’s not because he has the same need for human contact that women have. He can’t just be lonely. It’s because he is a sexist predator who feels entitled to women’s attention. If he gets depressed over that, he’s dangerous, and that justifies further isolating him.

Similarly, they can’t accept a man’s grief over the loss of a relationship. Men - the same men feminists claim aren’t talking enough about their feelings - are supposed to protect and provide for the women and children in their lives without developing any degree of emotional attachment to them that could potentially make separation painful. A guy who gets depressed over that loss has boundary issues, and that’s a perfect excuse to cut off more of his relationships, including his ability to parent his children.

And god forbid he be overwhelmed by the financial obligation to support two households following the severance those relationships, right? He certainly can’t want time to parent his children because he wants to parent his children, and he certainly can’t want financial responsibility for them to be equal because there are limits to what he can achieve for them under his life circumstances. Feminists will complain that the mother needs his support because she can’t work due to a lack of childcare, while defending her choice to avoid a custody arrangement that would allow the father, as the other parent, to make childcare largely unnecessary. If the father wants such a custody arrangement, along with a more reasonably egalitarian financial arrangement, feminists label him a deadbeat. They would never admit their positions on child custody are largely about money, but they have no problem ignoring a father’s human experiences, needs, and limitations while they portray his position as such.

The feminist mentality seems to have a lot of rules for men, and how they need to learn to cope with their welfare taking a backseat to women’s preferences. Men are supposed to talk about their feelings, but not when their feelings are evidence that women’s choices impose consequences on the people around them. Men are supposed to care about their families, but not when that care is inconvenient for the women who no longer care about them. Men are supposed to show vulnerability, but not when that vulnerability betrays even the slightest hint of self-interest. If that self-interest is in conflict with a woman’s self-interest, he’d better report to the nearest reprogramming station for “mental health treatment,” pronto!

What they fail to understand is that men are not the programmable social fillers and servants that feminists want.

Men are human.

Their humanity is not subject to feminist approval, or feminist control.

It’s not something that can be put on hold, stifled, silenced, or ignored. That only leads to a buildup of psychological pressure that will eventually have to be released.

It cannot be programmed or punished out of them. Attempts to do so have led to an epidemic of suicide and other forms self-destruction among men and boys.

That phenomenon isn’t going to be eliminated by teaching men to accept denial of their humanity. This problem can only be solved by a change in public attitude, beginning with that one, simple recognition:

Men are human.

We’re going to continue to say that, whether we’re allowed, or not.

#MenAreHuman - HBR Talk 111

Description
Are men allowed to be human? Feminist narratives on men's suffering indicate that the answer is "no," yet feminists think their ideology can address men's human rights issues. Join HBR Talk at 7:30PM EST as we discuss the dysfunction in these narratives, and why addressing men's issues must begin with respecting men's humanity.

Narwhal-Tusk Wielding Hero in London Bridge Attack

Stapler

Three men bravely charged after terrorist Usman Khan on London Bridge who, on a stabbing rampage, killed two people and seriously injured three others. The attack ended on the north side of London Bridge this past Friday.

One of these three men was a Polish chef only identified as Łukasz. In footage shared on social media, Lukasz can be seen running at Khan with a narwhal tusk. Lukasz was working at Fishmongers' Hall where the attack began (and where he grabbed the narwhal tusk from the wall). Khan, brandishing two knives, cut Lukasz’s arm multiple times in the confrontation but Lukasz continued chasing him despite his injuries. In the video, a white-haired man can be seen spraying Khan with a fire extinguisher while a third man rains punches down on the convicted terrorist. Other men stepped in to bring Khan to the ground at which point armed police shot him dead.

A Modest, Feminist, Proposal

By Mike J.

While promoting her new book, 'The Seven Necessary Sins for Women and Girls', on Radio Canada, feminist author Mona Eltahawy touched on a novel solution to once and for all ending the patriarchy. In Eltahawy's own words: "I ask people to imagine — now I’m using this word imagine, and I’m underlining it three times — a scenario in which we kill a certain number of men every week. How many men must we kill until patriarchy sits across the table from us and says, ‘OK, stop. What must we do, so that you can stop this culling?" However in the same interview Eltahawy is quick to clarify, "I want people to understand that patriarchy is not men. I’m talking about an ideology that uses systems of institutions and oppressions to privilege male dominance." Eltahawy also defends herself from women who criticize her idea stating that they are, "more upset and disturbed at the imaginary scenario of violence against your sons than the actual violence that is committed every day against your daughters or someone else’s daughter."

English Father Hangs Himself After Ex-Wife Barred Him from Seeing Children at Christmas

Andrew G

March 5th of this year, Jamie Bull was found dead in his flat in Cumbria. Stephanie Clayton, Bull’s girlfriend at the time, told an inquest into his death that her boyfriend had mental health issues that had “spiraled” at Christmas this past year. His ex-wife stopped him from being able to see his children. She told the court that Joanne Thorton, Bull’s ex-wife, knew about his mental health issues and used it against him when she kept him from being able to see his children. She also said that “Child access only became an issue once his ex-wife found out about our relationship.” She also said that “He only had very limited access. It hurt him a lot. He was devastated. He left her because he was unhappy. He stayed for the children but when he did leave it was used against him time and time again. His ex wasn't willing to communicate or reach any kind of compromise.”

Study Reveals the Obvious

Stapler

Last month a paper was published in Evolutionary Psychological Science titled “Oppression or Opportunity? Sexual Strategies and the Perception of Sexual Advances”.

Unfortunately the paper is behind a paywall but authors Lisa Klümper and Sascha Schwarz found that sexual advances are perceived differently depending on the attractiveness of the actor. From the paper’s abstract, 1,516 participants evaluated hypothetical situations of sexual advances from a coworker varying in attractiveness and physical attractiveness or status. It was found: “men perceived sexual advances as less negative than women, especially when the advances arise from a (physically) attractive actor.” And that the “higher the sociosexual orientation of the participants, the less harmful these sexual advances are perceived”. Sociosexual orientation is defined as the individual difference in the willingness to engage in sexual activity outside of a committed relationship. They also found that the same behavior from an attractive actor was perceived as less harmful than form an unattractive actor.

Japanese Store Reconsiders Badges...Period

By Mike J.

The Daimaru department store, located in Osaka, Japan, is rethinking a strange policy. Back in October the store introduced voluntary badges for female staff members that would indicate if they were menstruating. The badges, which feature a cartoon character named "Miss Period", were thought up by an employee of the store. Spokesperson for the department store, Yoko Higuchi, states that the intention of the badges was that "If you saw a colleague was having her period, you could offer to carry heavy things for her, or suggest she takes longer breaks, and this support would be mutual" but that, "It was never the intention to share the menstrual information with their customers". While they haven't scrapped the idea entirely, they're attempting to find a way to keep the information limited to staff members without revealing it to customers.

Show notes:

Boston College Suicide

Stapler

There’s been another story of a woman goading her boyfriend to commit suicide in the news.

Alexander Urtula, 22, jumped to his death from the top of a parking garage on the day of his graduation from Boston College after receiving 47,000 demeaning texts from his girlfriend, Inyoung You. You, 21, who was a former Boston College student, pled not guilty to a manslaughter charge last week.

Prosecutors told the judge You became upset when she found out Urtula had been intouch with a former girlfriend. Prosecutor Caitlin Grasso said she was present when Urtula jumped from the roof of the parking garage after tracking him through his cellphone.

Grasso also claimed the investigation revealed that You "became physically, verbally and psychologically abusive towards Mr. Urtula during the court of their year-and-a-half-long relationship." The text messages demonstrate the power dynamic of the relationship. Grasso said, “The defendant and Mr. Urtula discussed how the defendant owned Urtula, how he was her slave, and how Mr. Urtula ceded his autonomy to the defendant as a condition of the relationship."

Some of the texts include:

“Do everyone a favor and go f------kill yourself. You’re such a f------ stupid a--, worthless s---. Dude just f------ do everyone a favor and go f------ kill yourself honestly. F------ worthless a--, f------ piece of s---. You deserve nothing in the f------ world.”

Another text read:

"You can’t figure it out? You want to make me livid again? You want me to slash my throat? Is that what you want? Like, why do I have to threaten my own f------ life for you to finally do something? Did I not f------ tell you to read my texts? Now, if you do not read it right now, I’m literally going to f------ slash my throat and take a video, saying it was because of you and that I want you to see it."

From Fox News: “You's prosecution has been likened to the suicide texting case that another Massachusetts prosecutor brought against Michelle Carter in 2017. Carter went to prison after a judge found her guilty of sending texts encouraging her boyfriend to kill himself, which he ultimately did.”

Ohio Woman Kills Three Sons Because She Was Afraid That They Would Grow Up to Abuse Women

Andrew G

Brittany Renee Pilkington, 27, pled guilty to three counts of manslaughter last week. Pilkington had originally been scheduled for trial early next year but took a plea bargain instead. Over the course of 2 years, Pilkington killed her children, a three month old in August 2015, a four year old son in 2015, and another infant in July 2014. Pilkington confessed when her son Noah, killed in August 2015, was found dead. In her confession, she told the police that she was depressed and worried that her sons would grow up to be abusive towards women.

Pilkington’s husband, Joseph, 47, had sex with her while she was a minor. He was charged with sexual battery after he impregnated Pilkington in 2009. He had been seeing her mother. She also suffered lead poising as a child and suffered years of abuse, according to her attorneys. A scan presented showed that she was suffering brain damage.

Judge Mark Connor sentenced Pilkington to 37 years in prison. The sentences will run consecutively instead of concurrently. He said that the death penalty was not appropriate. The state’s medical experts noted Pilkington’s mental defects.

No Work For Female Sex Offender

By Mike J.

After getting out of prison for raping one of her male students, a female Australian teacher hasn't had an easy time finding employment. The unnamed woman pled guilty to "indecent assault and three counts of aggravated sexual intercourse" after her victim came forward five years after the fact, he was 15 at the time of the crime. Ever since being released on parole, she says that the crime she committed is something she thinks about often stating, "Every day I wake up, it’s in the back of my mind: ‘You are a sex offender’. I don’t define myself by that, but it’s always there because of the barriers." After being an educator for 27 years she now finds herself being barred from teaching. Since getting out she's attempted to retrain into mental health programs for adults. She's had jobs fall through that require her to provide the ability to work with children, even though the role she applied her would not have her working with children. She alleges the organization only added the check after an anonymous caller claiming to be a journalist threatened to write a story about how the organization had a sex offender on it's payroll. On this experience the woman states, "I can’t tell you how many times this has happened. I’m doing everything a rehabilitated person is expected to, but I’m constantly forced to look back instead of forward."

Trump Silencing Minority Gender Identities

Stapler

Several members of the Columbia University fencing team attempted to give a letter to president Trump criticizing him of his handling of gender issues. Elise Gout and three of her teammates went to a White House visit for athletes and coaches from 22 collegiate national championship teams in hopes of handing him their criticisms.

Gout argues that the Trump administration has “perpetuated a culture that conditions women and minority gender identities to be silent — to sacrifice the space they have every right to take up.” From Fox News, “The letter also criticized the administration for proposing changes to federal rules that would affect campus sexual assault survivors and for implementing new regulations that prohibit groups that receive federal grants from referring patients for abortion.”

Gout was unable to bring the letter with her. “White House spokesman Judd Deere said the Columbia fencers’ visit with Trump was cordial, and White House staff extended an invitation for the athletes and coach to come back to the White House at a later date to discuss any policy concerns they have.”

Emergency Action Against Isolation Rooms

By Mike J.

After a news story went viral concerning the overuse of so-called "isolation rooms" in multiple Illinois public schools, the state's board of education announced an emergency ban on the practice. An investigation, which was published a week ago by the Chicago Tribune and ProPublica, combed through over 20,000 instances of use of these isolation rooms from 2017 through 2018. It was revealed in the report that the punishment, which was also used on children with developmental disabilities, was used in excess and in an illegal manner; "Children were sent to isolation after refusing to do classwork, for swearing, for spilling milk, for throwing Legos. School employees use isolated timeout for convenience, out of frustration or as punishment, sometimes referring to it as ‘serving time." The report details the experiences of over 120 of the children subjected to this punishment, according to the report, "The students, most of them with disabilities, scratch the windows or tear at the padded walls. They throw their bodies against locked doors. They wet their pants. Some children spend hours inside these rooms, missing class time. Through it all, adults stay outside the door, writing down what happens." While it is legal in Illinois to isolate a student if they pose a risk of safety to themselves or others, the report concluded that, "every school day, workers isolate[d] children for reasons that violate[d] the law."

Men are teachers #InternationalMensDay | HBR Talk 110 2019-11-21T06:52:23+00:00close

Women in general (especially feminists, but truth be told most women do it) spend a lot of time telling men how to be, based on feminine sensibilities & interests. The toxic masculinity narrative is kind of made of that... the assertion that men are wrong any time they handle any experience differently than a woman would, or thinks they should. Many women even carry that over into dating, to the degree that each new love interest becomes a project rather than a partner. Then, when they get him "fixed" they dump him, and move on to the next, now more exciting project.

Guys are bombarded with messages about how being different from women makes them bad & how they can learn from women to be "better." One of the dumbest examples of this occurs in discussion about suicide as a gender issue. Everyone agrees that the majority of completed suicides involve male deaths, and that the incidence of this is a serious issue. Oppression olympic feminists are quick to trot out the claim that women and girls attempt suicide far more often than men and boys do, while their academic counterparts are pushing feminization of men’s mental health as a “solution” to male suicide. The claim: Fewer men would commit suicide if they handled the issues that make them suicidal the way women handle their issues.

But wait… if women attempt suicide more (a feminist talking point that itself is questionable) wouldn’t men handling their pain the way women do just lead to more male suicide?

This is one of the most frustrating things feminists do, and it’s especially grating on International Men’s day, when they come out in droves to offer “Be more like women” as a proposed solution to men’s human rights issues. Rather than being prepared to deal with unequal standards and practices in law and policy that end up disadvantaging men and boys, they exploit those disadvantages as an opportunity to preach at those who suffer from them. The resulting deluge of condemnation and castigation are then hailed as “pro-male” feminism, and a sign that feminists really do care about men. They seem genuinely shocked to learn that “hey, guys, you’re only suffering because you’re defective, and if you’d just stop being defective, things would get better” doesn’t come across as a supportive attitude.

They just think men have a few things to learn from women, you see… things like how to be more “emotionally intelligent,” talking about their feelings… things like asking for help when they’re facing hardship or abuse… things like crying instead of keeping pain bottled up… and the discrimination and other disadvantages they’re experiencing will magically disappear!

It sounds great from a feminist perspective. You just have to ignore the biological differences between male and female brains that would undermine most of these arguments, and the social environment that would undermine the rest. Pay no attention to the fact that as boys mature they develop a loss of the mechanism for crying. Take no notice of the masculine drive toward active problem-solving and how that would affect a man’s emotional healing process. Don’t look at the way society reacts to men’s complaints, by sweeping them under the rug at the nicest, or at worst, turning on them with accusations and punishments for speaking up. It’s misogynistic of critics like us to analyze women’s obviously perfect advice, don’t you know! You just fail to appreciate feminine genius, we’re told. We’re admonished to try to learn from women for once, instead of being so critical. Yes, even those of us who are women are supposed to abandon our toxic masculinity, and learn from feminism’s Big List of Things Women Do Better.

Well then, how about the reverse? Surely, if feminism is about equality, and not about hating men… if feminists truly believe the sexes are equal, then they must acknowledge that men are as good, as smart, as wise, as capable, and as correct in their handling of life as women are. There must even be things men do better! After all, if women don’t have to be identical to men in order to be as self-determining and as competent as men are, then the reverse must be true, as well.

There must be, therefore, some things that women and girls can learn from men and boys.

One good example of this that goes directly against feminism’s “talk more” admonition is what I learned from my brother’s natural toughness. I remember the first time I realized that he and I handled pain very differently. We were in elementary school. We had come home and kicked our shoes off during one of the first warm days of Spring, and while running around the yard barefoot, he’d gotten a bee sting. An experience like that would have sent me shrieking to my mother for first aid, but not my little brother. He sat down, examined his foot, pulled the bee off of it, and then calmly began messing with the area that had been stung. He didn’t say anything about it until I asked him, and he didn’t cry.

I went and got Mom, who he calmly informed, “I think I got stung by a bee.” He never did cry over it. When I asked why, he said, “crying doesn’t make it better, so why should I?” He’d learned that lesson by the 1st grade.

A few years of that level of toughness continued. Then one day, Mom got a call from his 4th grade teacher. My brother had been sitting in class quietly trying to control tears of pain due to an excruciating headache that he said was “behind his eye.” Mom called the family doctor, who, upon hearing that he was not just complaining about the pain, but crying, told Mom to pick him up from school and meet her at the emergency room. There, the condition she suspected was confirmed, and he was rushed into surgery. When the surgeon drilled into the sinus above his eye, the fluid that had been trapped there shot out with such force that it ricocheted off of the ceiling, indicating some serious pressure.

I can guarantee you my Mom didn’t panic and call the doctor every time I cried over pain, because she’d have been on the phone for advice about every normal childhood scrape and bruise I ever had. The difference between my brother and me made one thing obvious: The less you complain about adverse experiences, the more seriously you are taken, at least by wise and observant people, when you do speak up. I took the lesson, and resolved to become a tougher person. While my little brother was not the only tough person to ever act as an example for me, I don’t know if he realizes… he was the first person to really inspire me through his own habits to try not to sweat the small stuff, lest it overwhelm those who might otherwise care about the big stuff.

I had a lot of lessons like this from the men and boys in my life. I learned my father’s work ethic and his professionalism by working with him. He also taught me that power and strength aren’t the same thing, and displaying the former is not a sign of the latter, and that in fact the exercise of restraint can be a more profound demonstration of strength than any use of power. From the men and boys under whose influence I grew up, I learned what separates respect from pedestalization, how to earn and show respect, and why pedestalization is insulting. I was offered humor, teamwork, and good sportsmanship as tools for facilitating human connection where awkwardness would otherwise have socially crippled me. I was encouraged to build on my strengths and fight to overcome, or at least improve, where I have weaknesses… and learned that small, quiet displays of trust in one’s reliability and integrity are infinitely more valuable than all the praise in the world.

All too often, women have a tendency to respond to the differences between feminine and masculine approaches to everyday life as if those differences are an attack on the feminine. That’s a huge mistake, as very much of the masculine is shaped by cooperation with, protection of, and accommodation of the feminine. Men and boys already do take a lot of cues from women and girls in their lives. What many women, especially feminists, get wrong is their assumption that this is because masculinity is defective and needs to be “fixed” by femininity.

The sexes… the genders… whatever… we’re a team, even when we’re not a romantic one. Women have as much to learn from the nature and character of men as they can from us, and we absolutely should. That’s not an insult. It’s a resource - one only a fool would reject.

This week’s HBR Talk will examine ways women can learn from men. The discussion streams on multiple platforms. You can tune in Thursday at 7:30PM Eastern via the link in the lowbar, or find other viewing and listening options for that time or later, on badgerfeed.com.

Women, especially feminists have a regular habit of responding to men's issues by promoting feminization of men or female control over men as their main "solutions" for everything. Women have issues, too, and an entire movement that has been dedicated to them for almost 200 years, yet they still have the same issues.

YouTube, FaceBook, and Censorship (An Update)

By Mike J.

We have a quick update from at least one of the parties YouTube has taken action against regarding the now apparently forbidden use of the name of the alleged whistle blower. As you may recall, Matt Christiansen had his YouTube podcast interrupted for two weeks in a row. The first podcast where the alleged whistle blower was discussed was viewable for days after it was published, but was then forced into private mode by YouTube claiming a nebulous violation of community standards and guidelines. The second podcast was then interrupted halfway through although no mention of the name of the alleged whistle blower was uttered. Christiansen would end up receiving a follow up email from YouTube clarifying the situation. In this email they claim that his video, "contains footage that poses a credible threat to life" and recommends he blurs the faces or removes the names of any individuals who may be at risk. Curiously, the email doesn't mention who must be blurred out or otherwise removed from the video, only that those actions should be taken.

Saugus High School

By Mike J.

On November 14, at around 7:30am shots rang out at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, California. The shooting only lasted 16 seconds, but that was long enough to leave two dead and three others wounded. Police initially believed that the shooter had fled the scene but later, through video surveillance, they determined that the shooter was among the wounded. Nathaniel Berhow, age 16, shot himself in the head after the shooting and was assumed to be one of the victims. He would later die in the hospital at around 3:30pm the same day.

No motive has been ascribed to the shooting yet. By all accounts, Berhow appeared to be a normal high school student. He participated in sports, school clubs, and even had a girlfriend. According to Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva, "There's nothing really that stands out (with the suspect). He wasn't a loner. Wasn't socially awkward. Was involved in student activities. Student athlete". The victims seem to have been chosen at random, according to Sheriff Villanueva "He wasn't chasing anyone...[The victims] appeared to be who was around him, available at the time".

According to reports, Berhow's father had died in 2017 of natural causes brought about by a history of chronic alcoholism. A year before his death in 2016, Berhow's mother had filed for divorce and in 2015 Berhow's father had been arrested for domestic assault, but the charges were later dropped.

Survivor #Metoo

Stapler

The reality TV show “Survivor” had some extra drama last week. Throughout season 39 of the show, Dan Spilo was shown giving massages, laying on castmate’s lap, stroking hair and cuddling. Allegations against Dan came out in last Wednesday’s episode when one female contestant, Kellee Kim confided in her fellow castmates she felt uncomfortable but couldn't address the situation directly because it could impact her chances of winning the $1 million prize. In hearing Kellee’s accusations, Missy Byrd and Elizabeth Beisel alleged they had similar experiences with Dan.

In episode, Kellee said: "It's super upsetting because it's like you can't do anything about it. There are always consequences for standing up. This happens in real life, in work settings, in school. You can't say anything because it's going to affect your upward trajectory. It's going to affect how people look at you.”

Kellee brought her complaints to the show’s producers who mediated with the cast off-camera. However, once Kellee was out of earshot, the Missy and Elizabeth admitted to each other that they exaggerated their reactions to Dan’s behavior to align the game in their favor. As cited by Fox News, “Elizabeth even brazenly admitted that she didn’t feel uncomfortable but said if she “can play up that card in whatever way possible, I’ll do it. […] Honestly, I’ve felt safe this entire time and if I had felt uncomfortable I would have said, ‘Please stop.'”

Dan, who is a Hollywood agent, was given a chance to apologize during “Tribal Council” where said: “I work in an industry in which the #MeToo movement was formed and allowed — thank God — to blossom and become powerful and strong. […] My personal feeling is if anyone ever felt for a second uncomfortable about anything I’ve ever done, I’m horrified about that and I’m terribly sorry.” He continued, “True, untrue, it doesn’t matter what I feel. It doesn’t matter whether I’m aware of it. It doesn’t matter whether I ever sensed it. It doesn’t matter whether I knew it happened or it didn’t happen. If someone feels it, it’s their truth.”

Survivor fans took to twitter in disgust that Dan was shown in a sympathetic light. Here are some woke takes:

Also we must not forget about Kellee in all of this. Dan is no victim here. He clearly made her uncomfortable and we need to listen to women rather than discredit them every chance we get. Her bravery to speak up needs to be acknowledged. #Survivor

https://twitter.com/AndyHerren/status/1194856046004711425

So #Survivor just spent an hour building a case against Dan's inappropriate behavior with fourth-wall-breaking footage, and is now spending this hour turning him into the victim and erasing Kellee's experience.

https://twitter.com/realityblurred/status/1194799512512028672

@JeffProbst Production should’ve pulled Dan from the game immediately. Kellee shouldn’t have had to reiterate her experiences with sexual misconduct. Like you said, you guys saw it on numerous occasions #Survivor #Survivor39

Woman-bashing Firefighters

Australian women’s rights activist, Sherele Moody, claims that returning wildfire-fighters are more likely to physically abuse their partners.

https://twitter.com/7NewsSydney/status/1194514438872686593

The apparent source of the claim has contradicted Moody. Researcher, Dr. Debra Parkinson says that although they did find an increase in family violence in fire-effected communities, they never made claims about firefighters in particular.

Lesser of Two Evils?

Stapler

WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY where tech companies have great influence over our lives. Entrepreneur Andrew Yang has released a plan to combat the scale of their influence in his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The plan reads: "Digital giants such as Facebook, Amazon, Google, and Apple have scale and power that renders them more quasi-sovereign states than conventional companies. […] They're making decisions on rights that government usually makes, like speech and safety."

Yang points to algorithms as the root of the problem as they “push negative, polarizing and false content to maximize engagement”. To counter this, Yang would require tech companies to work with the federal government to “create algorithms that minimize the spread of mis/disinformation," as well as "information that's specifically designed to polarize or incite individuals."

Yang is also one among many Democrats and Republicans who wish to amend Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which has protected social media companies from facing certain liabilities for third-party consent posted by users online. On Section 230, Yang wrote that it “absolves platforms from all responsibility for any content published on them. However, given the role of recommendation algorithms—which push negative, polarizing, and false content to maximize engagement—there needs to be some accountability."

However, as pointed out by Reason.com author, Billy Binion, social media sites already police content they deem harmful and have been criticized for being biased and overzealous in their content and user removal. Section 230 permits these tech companies to self-regulate, to delete undesirable user-uploaded content in “good faith”. At any rate, removing liabilities would not end only “bad” online content.

Cenk Uygur Running for Congressional Seat

Stapler

Last Thursday, Cenk Uygur, founder of The Young Turks, announced his candidacy to fill the congressional seat vacated by Rep. Katie Hill (D-Calif.) last month.

Cenk said he’d represent the people of California’s 25th Congressional District “in a way that they have not seen before.” As cited by Huffpost, “The whole point of my career has been to fight for positive change in the world. […] That’s what I have done on TYT and that’s what I’m going to do in CA-25. I’m going to fight to end corruption and get everyone in CA-25 higher wages!”

As for myself, I saw "domestic violence" bubbling around as an issue for various agitators over the decades, but it wasn't close to me until the Australian Government put out a big adverting campaing called "Stop it at the Start" in 2015 which was the full feminist "patriarchy" model, telling us that males are prone to be perpetrators of dv from childhood, through patriarchy. As a victim of an abusive ex-wife myself and a gynocentric court system that ad really got to me, and I became interested in the "back story". What scares me most is that what you are saying has been known and spoken about since the 1970's, and it keeps being repressed, and the feminist narrative and anger ("anger" being one of your early observations) just gets louder and louder, and the funding increases. Typically, after the motivations and research behind "Stop it at the Start" were exposed as fraudulent, the ads were funded for a rerun and just re-appeared in our TV's and cinemas, unaltered. Still, thanks for saying it again, and with further research. Maybe the wall will collapse when it's tapped by the right person or at the right point. https://youtu.be/Y_WcaIkWYuk

It's not international whine about men day | HBR Talk 109 2019-11-14T15:23:44+00:00close

Last week on HBR Talk we discussed the Movember foundation and feminism’s evolving opposition to the organization and its men’s health initiatives. This week, we’re approaching International Men’s Day, another initiative that feminists have, for years, turned up annually to bemoan and belittle.

The same ideology that tells us male suicide is a result of toxic masculinity, or more specifically, men’s tendency to not speak up about their issues the way women do, also tells us that International Men’s Day is unnecessary because men don’t have issues to highlight. Then, the same ideology that says men don’t have issues to highlight goes on to blame men for the existence and incidence of said issues, ignoring their own movement’s contribution to the ca uses of many of the conditions men face. For instance, some of the biggest proponents of the hypermasculinity that feminists call “toxic” are women’s advocates demanding that men act as institutional and public bodyguards for women. These idealogues totally hate male violence… unless it’s used for women’s benefit.

Feminists say abused men don’t get help because they don’t talk about their abuse, but whose survey method designed to obscure or outright ignore men’s abuse experiences has become the standard in intimate partner and sexual violence prevalence research? Oh, wait… that’d be feminist professor Mary P. Koss, whose work was promoted by feminist icon Gloria Steinem, in feminist publication Ms. Magazine. The data from that type of “research" is used as guidance for police and prosecutor response to reports of these types of violence, leaving men with little to no recourse and great risk of being presumed perpetrators instead of victims, regardless of the facts of their cases.

We’re told every day is international men’s day, but what exactly does our society do every day for men that would make it anywhere near the equivalent of the treatment women get on international women’s day? What discussion about men’s issues is commonplace on any normal day? In what ways are men ever celebrated just for being men? What society-wide efforts are in place to recognize ways in which men are disadvantaged, and what reform initiatives are in place?

If your list is coming up sparse, or empty, perhaps maybe not every day is international men’s day… so perhaps, if critics of the celebration really are part of a movement that is about equality, one day out of the entire year could be about men’s issues, men’s lives, and celebration of men and masculinity, just as international women’s day is for women.

I’m not talking about a day during which women’s advocates disparage rugged masculinity outside of service to women as “toxic,” order men around, try to determine their identity for them, and castigate and admonish them over their supposed patriarchal crimes of privilege and prejudice. That’d just be an international feminist ideology day with the label “men’s” slapped over it to excuse the behavior.

I’m talking about a day to remember that the phrase “human rights” isn’t gendered, but is about all human beings, including men. As stated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights, and everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law.”

On International Men’s Day, we should be looking at ways in which our society does not live up to those standards where men and boys are concerned, and seek to reform law and policy that by design, presumes them less than human. We should be celebrating the great history of achievement that is the legacy of masculinity; men built every civilization, spent their labor maintaining them, their blood defending them, and their lives providing for their loved ones within them. They are the foundation upon which everything we have today stands, and the backbone of our society.

Ideology that dehumanizes the entire male gender in response to women’s issues treats them as gods and devils, all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-consuming.
Its practitioners can dismiss male victims of abuse because those gods can take care of themselves. They can dismiss the falsely accused because those devils probably did something to justify the accusation anyway. They can deride father’s advocates over custody issues, because those demons are deadbeats and abusers, right? They can ignore all legitimacy in child support issues, because those gods just sweat money. They can laugh about male suicide because who mourns the death of the devil?

They can excuse every atrocious attitude, and every malicious act supported by it, if they simply forget (or ignore) one thing: Neither gods, nor devils, men and boys are human… all human, only human, and deserving of recognition as subjects and beneficiaries of every human rights declaration.

This International Men’s Day is a great day to celebrate men, and to support men’s human rights, because men are human.

What other reason do you need?

This week on HBR Talk, we’ll be discussing International men’s day, feminism’s historically hysterical reaction to it, and why there needs to be a day to highlight men’s issues, and celebrate men’s humanity. The discussion streams on multiple platforms. You can tune in at 7:30PM eastern via the link in the lowbar or find other viewing or listening options at badgerfeed.com.

Goldblum sticks up for Woody Allen and Due Process

Stapler

In an interview, Jeff Goldblum stuck up for Woody Allen. Since working together on the 1977 film, Annie Hall, Allen has been shunned by Hollywood due to accusations that he sexually assaulted his adoptive daughter, Dylan Farrow. Allen continues to deny the accusations.

From The Daily Beast:

Goldblum was promoting his upcoming jazz album, I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This, when he was asked if he would work with the director again.

I think there is a presumption of innocence until proven guilty,” the 67-year-old actor responded. “Even though I feel like this cultural shift [the #MeToo movement] is very, very positive and long overdue and I support it wholeheartedly and take it very seriously, I also admire his body of work. So I would consider working with him, until I learned something more.”

Women’s US Soccer Team granted Class Status in Lawsuit

Stapler

The Women’s US soccer team was granted class status in their equal pay lawsuit they filed in September.

As the New York Times explains:

[Last] Friday’s ruling by the judge, R. Gary Klausner of United States District Court for the Central District of California, drew no conclusions on whether the players’ allegations against the federation were true, or whether U.S. Soccer had acted in violation of federal law; it merely noted that the players had sufficiently met the burden to be treated as a class rather than as individuals.”

The players had argued the working conditions and compensation they were contesting applied not only to the 28 named plaintiffs but also any women who appeared in a national team over the specified years.

Megan Rapinoe, one of the team’s captains said, “Sometimes it’s just nice for someone to say, ‘I believe you and I am validating what you’ve been saying. [...] We have an internal belief in what we’re doing. But to have someone, and in this case someone very important in this case, say, ‘I believe what you’re saying,’ is very important.”

YouTube, FaceBook, and Censorship

By Mike J.

In recent days, social media giants YouTube and FaceBook have been mired in controversy stemming from the censorship of creators covering the attempted impeachment proceedings of President Donald Trump. FaceBook has been deleting the posts of anyone mentioning the name of the alleged whistle-blower and issuing temporary suspensions. FaceBook claims that mentioning the alleged whistle-blowers name is in violation of their "coordinating harm policy" and claims that they will come back to this descision should the name be widely publicized in the media or used by public figures in debate.

YouTube has taken a similar stance, forcing videos that discuss and name the alleged whistle-blower into private mode and sending warning emails to their owners. The main difference is that they do not cite what community guideline or YouTube policy is being violated. YouTube content creator Matt Christiansen has had two of his podcasts forced into private mode for discussing the alleged whistle-blower, and the same has happened to a video from journalist Tim Pool. Pool was also temporarily suspended on FaceBook for mentioning the name of the alleged whistle-blower.

Everything really is crazy. Censorship is always ridiculous. Manipulation everywhere looks like arrogance.

Tragedy in Nevada

By Mike J.

On November the 8th, Henderson police responded to a bizarre 911 call. Two voices can be heard on the recording, one belonging to Claudia Nadia Rodriguez, age 37, and the other to her unnamed six-year-old son. Her son can be heard pleading with the 911 operator, saying, "don't hurt me" and "she's trying to kill me" while Rodriguez calmly reads off her address to the operator and states, "They’re trying to kill each other. They’re making us do it. We got to kill each other." The responding officers found Rodriguez naked, covered in blood, and wielding a knife once they arrived on the scene. When approached by the officers, Rodriguez told them "You got to kill me" and then began to attack one of them. In the ensuing struggle she managed to grab one of the police officers firearms and fired one shot, which hit no one. Rodriguez was then shot by one of the officers, she would later die from her injuries. Her six-year-old son, despite suffering twenty-five stab wounds, survived and is currently being treated. Reports indicate he is expected to make a full recovery. Rodriguez had a history of child abuse, having allegedly abused two of her older children. She had previously been arrested four times before for domestic battery and was convicted for it once in 2017. Rodriguez had been locked in a fierce custody battle with the child's father who claimed she was abusive and sought full custody of his son. For the past year the couple had joint custody of the boy.

Journalists: #NoNutNovember has far-right roots

Andrew

Welp its happening, #NoNutNovember is upon us. And just like that journalists have deduced that #NoNutNovember is far-right. #NotNutNovember, or #NNN for short, is a challenge that some men take upon themselves in order to abstain from masturbating. The subreddit /rNoNutNovember has 52,000 subscribers.

From the Rolling Stone “Yet it would be naive to ignore that there’s significant overlap between the general ideology behind NoFap — and, to a degree, No Nut November — and that of the far right, which has increasingly coopted the principles of masturbation abstinence. Because the challenge is associated with abstaining from porn, some people associated with the movement have taken the extra step of harassing adult performers on social media, giving it an additional layer of troubling implications.”

A meme of a “Coomer” has been floating around in relation to this. Common accompanying text includes “doesn’t even know anything about politics,” “extremely aesthetic right arm (huge muscle),” and “has never heard of NoFap.” PewDiePie gave a shout out to the meme on his youtube channel and Paul Joseph Watson tweeted “No Nut November and the Coomer meme represent a deeper meaning. Porn is evil. It literally re-wires your brain and causes erectile dysfunction. Take the pledge. Don’t be a Coomer.”

David Ley PhD, a clinical psychologist and sex therapist who studies pornography and mental health, referred to #NoNutNovember as “a creepy little smorgasbord of insecurity-driven hate with anti-Semitism, misogyny, and homophobia all rolled up in one.”

Getting lippy about Movember | HBR Talk 108 2019-11-07T15:40:25+00:00close

It’s that time of year again!
I’m not talking about the holidays. It’s November, also known as Movember, thanks to the Movember foundation, which started out in 2003 as a group of guys striving to revive the fashionability of the moustache, then became a way to raise money to support prostate and testicular cancer research. It has since become a worldwide charity initiative for men’s health. The organization funds over 1000 projects among 20 organizations in 20 countries, including cancer research, mental health training programs, suicide prevention, fitness, and data collection and tracking to help identify contributing factors in men’s health conditions.

Cancer prevention should be something that gender issues advocates of all stripes can agree on. So should suicide prevention. This is a huge issue for men, with a global rate of one male suicide per minute, and all sides of the political spectrum know that part of the problem is men’s tendency to not reach out for help. As many in the manosphere have pointed out, men talking more is not a solution to the individual man’s situation that puts him at risk for suicide - it helps find the pathway to understanding that situation, and working out his solution. That process requires listeners who are willing to consider the information they’re given and offer help, rather than trying to fit the helpseeker’s situation into a preconceived notion of what he should need. The Movember foundation’s website puts this quite succinctly, by following up the suggestion to “talk” with admonishments for men’s social circles: “Ask. Listen. Encourage Action. Check In.”

Admonishing men in crisis to ask for help is easy. Being part of the support network they turn to for that help… that’s activism… or friendship, family bonding… love.

Maybe that’s why feminists have been so quick and consistent in their hatred of the Movember foundation and its initiatives. When the organization began to gain traction and media attention, feminists responded by treating cancer as a competition, whining that attention to prostate and testicular cancer research initiatives would take funding and attention away from women’s cancer research initiatives. Some even argued that prostate cancer has a high survival rate and therefore does not need attention, but it’s actually not that far off from the survival rate of breast cancer. In the US, 6.9% of cancer deaths are from breast cancer, while 5.2% are from prostate cancer, a difference of only 1.7 percentage points. What is the sense in that argument? Only 3.8% of US cancer deaths are from Leukemia, but nobody in their right mind would attack Leukemia research initiatives as a potential distraction from research into a more common cancer.

When they’re not engaging in petty treatment of cancer as a competition, these ideologues lob complaints about political correctness. Facial hair is problematic, guys, because it is linked to biological manhood, and encourages men to experience solidarity with each other through a “secondary sex characteristic.” The initiative has been attacked as a slight to the transgender population, to ethnic minorities who grow facial hair at younger ages, to ethnic minorities who have a tendency to not grow much facial hair, to nonbinary identifying people, and to women.

Some ideologues have tried redirecting to another initiative, No Shave November, which raises funds for the prevent cancer foundation, St Jude’s Children’s research hospital, and an organization called Fight Colorectal Cancer, trying to make support a competition between the two initiatives rather than something that can be given to both of these excellent causes. Slate magazine had the most honest complaint, with its writers outright admitting that their main problem with the cause was that it celebrates masculinity, and as we’re supposed to remember, masculinity is bad and everyone is supposed to hate it.

Then there are ideologues who want to redirect to pink ribbon activism, which in the past has involved such stellar campaigns as posting social media status update games intended to get people to ask what the campaigner’s status means, so she can answer with “it’s for breast cancer awareness” and bask in the feeling of woke feminine unity and having Done Something.
One year, the status game was the phrase “I like it” followed by the location of the poster’s purse, stated out of context, obviously intended to be suggestive & spark interest. Of course, several friends tagged me to participate. I don’t normally carry a purse, but I have one I use when I have to carry more things than will fit in my pockets. Most of the time, it hangs empty and unused in the living room. I was fed up with these silly status games, so I posted “I like it hanging from the back of the rocking chair in front of the living room window where all the neighbors can see.”
I don’t get tagged into those games any more, and I don’t miss the slacktivism at all.

What does burn me up is that the same ideologues who support that kind of silliness had the nerve to call actually raising money for men’s health care initiatives “slacktivism” because the initiative is symbolized and gamified using moustache growth. And if that’s not petty enough, one feminist blogger even went so far as to try to stir up controversy among Mo Sistas by trying to redirect the discussion from men’s health and welfare to social attitudes about women’s body hair. But do those two discussions really have to be competing viewpoints? It’s not like they have anything to do with each other, much less anything that should pit them against each other.

This year, Billie, the brand that invented marketing razors that are specifically for women, is bypassing the pettiness by simply encouraging women who normally remove their lip hair to let it grow and participate in the Movember initiative. The company is matching 100% of contributions up to $50,000 to be donated to the Movember Foundation. Their motivation is still about body acceptance, and yeah, it’s kind of a sneaky co-opt, but at least they’re pairing it with raising money for men’s health, and the hundred-grand they may be contributing will fund those causes regardless of why they donate it. Mo money… mo research… mo potential to extend men’s lives. In the end, it’s a pretty good example of the sexes being able to find reasons to support each other even when we’re at odds about darned near everything.

Often, we’re at each others’ political throats… so it’s not bad to see these ladies put on a stiff upper lip to deal with those differences. When it comes to collaboration in support of a lifesaving cause, we could definitely use a little “mo” of that.

Getting lippy about Movember | HBR Talk 108

Description
Movember is upon us again! The initiative is a great example of men's activism for the purpose of addressing men's health considerations. Among the benefits of Movember is that it gets men doing something feminists complain that they never do: Talking about their problems. Naturally, it's received a lot of hate from women's advocates. Tune in Thursday at 7:30 EST as HBR Talk discusses the initiative and feminists' response to it.

Ghoulfriends - the creepy side of femininity - HBR Talk 107 2019-10-31T01:06:43+00:00close

Have you ever had one of those nightmares in which you start to engage with someone you know, when suddenly their whole demeanor is unexpectedly, unexplainably aggressive?

You’re under attack, or you’re accused of something you didn’t do, or some other conflict arises. You’re totally blindsided and confused. You don’t understand what just happened, but you know for sure that something is very wrong. There must be some unidentified motivation behind the behavior… something hovering just outside of your perception, eerily and frustratingly evasive. You don’t know why this is happening or how to change the situation… only that it is going to end badly.

I was in high school, and this was not a nightmare, but unfortunately very real. This guy and I were close, but not dating. It was the kind of non-relationship, the status of which people had to be reminded of occasionally when they’d mistakenly put a superfluous suffix on “friend” in reference to one of us. We’d been not dating for more than a year when he suddenly got stand-offish, then told me he didn’t want anything to do with me any more. He gave me no reason, but that shouldn’t have been a big deal. We were not dating, and since we were not dating, this certainly couldn’t have been a breakup. Needless to say, I was very sad about it and couldn’t for the life of me explain why, and I was equally unable to explain why I was elated when I got a note from him in my locker one Friday after school, saying he missed me and wanted to talk.

I immediately went looking for him… found him on his way to his bus home, and greeted him, still holding the note in my hand. As soon as he saw me heading his way, he yelled at me, “what the hell do you want?”

Confused, I held up the note and asked, “Wait, didn’t you write this?” He answered, angrily and a bit aggressively, “Yeah, I wrote it!” then turned away from me and boarded the bus.

If I had a normal ego I probably would have just decided he was a jerk, gotten angry, thrown the note away, and that would have been that. Instead, I spent the whole weekend puzzled over the contradiction between the words he wrote and the way he acted. What the hell was that all about?

If I’d been a normal teen girl in such a state of confusion, I’d have gotten a friend of mine to ask one of his friends exactly that question, and waited for an answer… but I’m not, and I didn’t. I decided one of us must have misunderstood the other in passing, and I planned to ask him Monday morning, when he wasn’t rushing to avoid missing the bus.

I had the whole weekend to get myself all worked up to have a heart attack the moment I got near his locker, so of course I was calm and measured in my approach. The moment I got near him, he began yelling at me again, and again, I was confused. In the turmoil, I made the mistake of ignoring his body language, and as he stepped back and put his hands up by his chest, I stepped right into the empty space, shoving the note at him and asking “but what about this?” If I’d been older and wiser, I wouldn’t have done that, but I was 17, worked up beyond reason, and naive as hell, so I didn’t even see it coming.

I was struggling not to go over the rail and down the stairwell, watching his shoulders hit the wall, when I caught up to the fact that he’d pushed me and I’d reflexively shoved back. Worse, everyone in the hall had seen him give me a good, hard shove... guys I’d grown up with in my neighborhood… guys I’d played tag with, baked cookies for… guys who were friends with my brother. I couldn’t even treat the situation as a one-time mistake. In my neighborhood, nobody would care that I had given right back as good as I got. That shove meant he had “hit” me. I couldn’t even be friends with him again, and my brother was going to have to fight him, because you just can’t hit a guy’s sister. One of my friends was already ushering me away to class before I had the chance to make things any worse.

Later on, she and I talked together to try and puzzle out why that had all happened, only to realize I’d lost the note, so it wasn’t even there for us to analyze. It’s only because I dropped it that I was ever able to identify the catalyst, because the person who found the note recognized her handwriting, traced his way back through recent events, and then explained it all to me.

Miss Catalyst was a big gal, not really fat, but strong. Rather than going out for any sport, she just got herself a reputation for fighting like a bulldog if you happened to make her mad. She was a grade behind me, didn’t hang out with nerds, and didn’t take any of the kinds of electives I took. Apart from passing each other in the hallway, we rarely even saw each other.

She was about as far off of my radar as you could get. I didn’t have any reason in the world to pay attention to her. It didn’t occur to me that she’d have any reason in the world to pay attention to me, either. Why should she? I was nobody - not popular, not a star in the sports I was in, not in charge of anything, not even in her way, and not interested in engaging in any kind of conflict. I might as well have been invisible.

Except I wasn’t. For whatever reason, Miss Catalyst had zeroed in on me, and decided Just a Friend and I needed to be messed with. She had spread rumors, had gotten her friends to make fun of him for associating with such a nerd, and had even talked a girl close to her into flirting with him. She floated a rumor that one of the tougher guys we all knew was going to beat him up for his involvement with me. It was the perfect formula for him to develop a sudden aversion to me. After he stopped talking to me, she wrote the note and put it into my locker. Then, having lit both fuses, she stepped back to watch the sparks fly, and fly they did.

A week after the incident my brother and Just a Friend had a fight in the school hallway, and both ended up in trouble with the vice principal. For two weeks after that, Just a Friend came to school with his arm in a sling. During that time, I heard that Miss Catalyst had been bragging around school about how she caused the whole thing. She seemed pleased with how it had turned out, but never gave any reason why she’d wanted to cause all of that trouble. She didn’t even appear to have had any beef with any of us. If her word could be taken for it, she had done all of that elaborate manipulation and interference with our lives just for laughs, like we weren’t even people to her… only puppets for her own personal show.

One of the creepiest gals I’ve ever met… and I barely knew her.

Relational aggression isn’t always that active. Often, it just involves the creation of a single snag in the fabric of one’s social environment… a bully deals with a rival by telling another gal “Hey, I saw her talking to your boyfriend,” or floats a rumor that a guy who slighted her actually groped her instead. She doesn’t have to do anything else. Other people’s natural human tendencies will do the rest. Pick the right boyfriend to use as a story prop and his girl will confront both him and the perceived rival. The rumor mill will ruin the reputation of the guy who ignored her. Anything her targets do to defend themselves will be viewed as aggression, and her hands, several dominoes back from the current state of things, will appear totally clean.

Other times, this behavior can be highly involved, with the aggressor acting as a queen bee, directing organized exclusion, rumor mongering, and ridicule or other verbal abuse. As Ditta M. Oliker, Ph.D., describes in her Psychology Today article, Bullying in the Female World, The Hidden Aggression Behind the Innocent Smile, the Queen Bee’s friends often comply out of fear of being the next target. The aggressor bears little risk of being presumed responsible for the fallout from her bullying. After all, she didn’t do anything to anyone. Her target just seems to suddenly be very, very unpopular.

Did you ever wonder how a woman can bully a man to death and then turn around and play victim of his suicide? Why the phenomenon of false allegations could be so commonly accepted that people just seem accustomed to it? Why women’s advocates don’t expect to be seen as passive-aggressive when they label women’s attitudes toward men “toxic masculinity?” Why the same ideologues can expect social credit for laws they’re proud they’ve influenced, while simultaneously arguing that laws they’re embarrassed to have influenced are the Patriarchy’s fault because men voted for them?

It’s because women, in general, are used to getting away with this kind of social manipulation. It’s their most effective weapon. It can even be deadly.
And unlike some weapons, it’s totally out of control.

Ghoulfriends - the creepy side of femininity - HBR Talk 107

Description
We've heard far too much about variety of ways in which certain ideologues think masculinity can be creepy... all a guy really has to do is be noticed by the wrong woman to be saddled with that label. She gets to decide for him what he's thinking and why he's wrong, and voila! Instant creep. It's downright spooky... and so are the many other manifestations of toxic feminine relational aggression. Tune in at 7:30PM EST, as HBR Talk discusses female creeps.

Show notes:

Save James” Outcome and Gag Order

Stapler

The father fighting for custody of his seven year old “transgender” son has been granted joint custody and hit with a gag order from Judge Kim Cooks.

Jeffery Younger, the Texas dad, reacted to the jury’s decision to not grant him sole custody saying “We put up an email form Ms. Georgulas to me in which she contemplates cutting the penis off my son. 20 minutes later, they go into deliberations, and they come back voting against me. […] The Texas I grew up in, the Texas that I live in, if a parent did that, we’re just gonna give him [the child] to the other parent; we’re not gonna tolerate that kind of craziness. So it just tells you, I think, really how far our society has changed, and how much less Christian we are.”

Younger said he was ready and willing to fight in the case of an appeal, telling the Daily Wire: “I would like to protect every child in the United States from these abhorrent practices by the medical community. It’s one of the reasons we’ve always said from the very beginning, we didn’t just say ‘save James,’ we said ‘save James; save thousands of kids.’ And the reason we said that last part is we did not want to forget the other children who are suffering from this with parents that just don’t have the resources, the will, the capacity, the circumstances to fight.”

Since the interview with the Daily Wire the Judge has ruled that Mr. Younger will have a say in his son’s gender transition in a joint custody arrangement. However, he was given a gag-order and will have to shut down the “Save James” website which includes the circulated videos of his boy, testimonial and court documents.

19 Year Old Male Convicted of Sexual Assault After Touching Arm and Waist of Girl

Andrew G

Jamie Griffiths, 19, of Cheshire, England was convicted of two charges of sexual assault. In addition to 12-month community service he must also pay 250 euro to the supposed victim as well as be put on the Sex Offender’s Register for 5 years.

Griffiths googled “how to make friends” before making contact with the alleged female victim, aged 17 at the time, while she was walking to and from school. The female student’s mother claimed that Griffiths would have touched her daughter’s breast had she not moved away from him. The alleged victim went into a downward spiral, crying during a mock exam and said that the encounter hindered her form applying to Oxford. She said that “I felt extremely anxious in the following weeks, often breaking down into tears. I was completely unable to walk anywhere by myself without being overcome by fear.” She added that “Every time I go to the place the first incident took place my heart stops and I mentally prepare myself to see him there. All of this happening when I'm in my final year at school I'm afraid it will have affected my grades and potentially my future.” Both Griffiths and the alleged victim were studying for A levels last October and November when the alleged incident occurred.

Griffiths is a first-year criminal justice student at Durham University. He has denied all the charges. He said that he was a “'shy, anxious and awkward” teenager who had clumsily approached the girl in an attempt “to make a friend but the words didn't come out.” Claire Aldridge, the defense lawyer for Griffiths, said that he had been going through a “difficult time” when he was forced to re-sit a year at high school.

In describing the incident to the court, the alleged victim said that “The pavement was quite wide but he suddenly moved to walk in front of me, looked me straight in the eye and touches me on my side and walked off. It was quite a while - three to five seconds. He smirked at me, he didn't stop he just touched me and walked off and I broke down crying in the street - it was quite traumatic. I had reported the previous incident to the police days beforehand as (news) had been going around that other incidents had occurred and I thought I could give more evidence and then it happened again. I felt very unsafe even in my own home (and) couldn't walk to school for a couple of weeks. I wouldn't leave the house myself. Even today, walking down the street it just makes everything a little bit scarier if there is a guy walking towards me by himself, I start to panic - it is just part of everyday life.”

Sex Assault Hoax

By Mike J.

In late September at Anderson High School in Hamilton County, Ohio, a 13-year-old female student claimed that a male teacher grabbed her by the arm, partially disrobed, and then molested her. According to the student she was told, "if you tell anyone about this, I’ll kill you." The teacher was immediately placed on administrative leave while the allegation was investigated. On October 11th, the Shriff's Office finished their investigation and made the following statement, "As a result of the investigation it was determined that no criminal or inappropriate activity of any kind occurred, and that the alleged incident was fabricated by the accuser. Forest Hills School District and Anderson High School are aware of the situation, and the investigation into the false accusations is ongoing." Later on October 25th, Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil released another statement indicating that the unnamed 13-year-old girl would be charged with 'Making False Alarms' which is a first degree misdemeanor. School Superintendent for the Forest Hills area, Scot Prebles, said the following, "Although we’ve had a tough day, we’re all working through it...The repercussions of this do have long term impact...We have a staff who is jittery right now, because this could be done on any day to any one of us...We’re also going to make sure that we are supporting our staff member. We have a staff member who has been hurt by an accusation. It was not an accurate accusation....We’re going to do everything we can to help our students, to help this particular student, to work with their family, to make sure that they’re in a good place and they’re maturing and they’re growing from this situation."

Cat Calls Gets Cops Called

By Mike J.

Police commissioner of Devon and Cornwall in Great Britain urges women to call the police in the event they are cat-called. Commissioner Alison Hernandez suggests calling 999, Britains version of 911, in the event of "misogynistic acts such as wolf-whistling or catcalling" as under British law these constitute as hate crimes. This response came after freelance writer and social media manager Rebecca Broad, tweeted about her experience of being cat-called and her asking of what the police plan to do about it. As already stated, the response from Commissioner Hernandez was to call the police. Broad was taken aback by the response stating, "Wow - didn't even think to do this...I guess that shows how ingrained it is in me to hear comments from cars and bow my head and accept that they're part of walking the streets alone." Commissioner Hernandez also stated she would like to see an app developed which could help women record and report cases of sexual harassment.

All Female Spacewalk

Stapler

Two Nasa scientists made herstory with a female only space walk. Christina Koch and Jessica Meir were tasked with replacing a failed power control unit outside of the International Space Station (ISS).

This all-female spacewalk was delayed seven months as ISS only had one medium sized spacesuit on board. Nasa sent up a second one this month.

From the Guardian: “I think it’s important because of the historical nature of what we’re doing,” Koch said ahead of the spacewalk. “In the past, women haven’t always been at the table. It’s wonderful to be contributing to the space program at a time when all contributions are being accepted, when everyone has a role. That can lead in turn to increased chance for success.”

Koch, who has been on the ISS since March, was first out the hatch, followed by Meir, carrying a tool bag. During the five-and-a-half-hour spacewalk, the astronauts remained attached to handrails on the exterior of the ISS using harnesses and pairs of metal carabiners. These are sequentially clipped and unclipped to ensure that the astronauts cannot float off into space.”

“Previously, 14 women and 213 men have carried out spacewalks. The first woman was the Russian cosmonaut Svetlana Savitskaya, who went outside the USSR’s Salyut 7 space station in 1984.”

Nasa unveiled the prototype for a new spacesuit that can give a more customized fit for any shape or size.

“I need you to fix his suit.”

“The suit is literal perfection.”

“It will be,” Batwoman says, “when it fits a woman.”
