Women’s Day Off

It’s about time we end the Women’s Day Off
if we want men to stay alive

A few weeks ago feminists came up with what they seem to think is a novel idea: that women should take a day off from their duties in order to show the world what an important role women fulfill in society. The idea has been widely criticized as its motives and aims seem as obscure as those of the attendees of recently held women’s marches in the US and Europe. It is unclear to anyone about what these women are protesting and what they are aiming to achieve. Read More

Feminism Is Not Synonymous With Morality, Goodness or Rightness

Latest Supporter Submission:

To begin, its important that my readers know that I am anti-feminism. Being anti-feminism does not define me as a human being. I am also many other things. I am not particularly fond of being considered an “anti-feminist”. I’d rather be considered “pro equality”. Feminists are people (many of whom are good friends of mine) who I believe mean well but have bought into a deeply flawed and harmful ideology. They believe that they are doing good things for women and our world as a whole. I cannot agree with that, but I am not trying to villainize individual people who follow this movement. I am working to deconstruct, disassemble and replace feminism with an egalitarian, gender neutral campaign to help all people, regardless of gender, race or sexual orientation.

But, you might say… feminism IS pro equality already. Feminism already has whats best for both men and women in mind when it funds ad campaigns and charity events, creates social media content and when it heavily influences public policy. Feminism MEANS equality.

I strongly disagree and I’ll tell you why. Read More

What Feminism gets wrong about Intersectionality

Latest Supporter Submission:

This photo was shared by Upworthy, and while I completely agree with the text in the photo I agreed even more with the first comment on their facebook page about this photo.

The comment was this:  “I used to be a supporter of gay rights, but I’m finally getting to a point where I am no longer a supporter of that, and I think society is too. Now I am to the point where I’m just a supporter of human rights and feel no need to make a distinction. Hopefully soon we can all live in a world where we can both open our eyes up and yet be beautifully blind.”–by Micheal Havens.

Frilly aprons beat burkhas!

Latest Supporter Submission:

Historians in the UK have noted a recent trend (difficult to confirm) of women reassessing the feminist fulfillment narrative, and deciding that cozy domesticity is actually rather lovely. The Daily Mail reported the story, tagging in at the end the inevitable ‘men are lazy, lying assholes and women do all the work anyways’ addendum, which is of course thoroughly unsurprising.

A study carried out by market research firm ComRes recently suggested that women do twice as many roles around the home as men.

However, it was suggested that the divide in labour was probably even greater as men tended to over exaggerate their contribution to household chores.

Does Feminism Empower Women?

Latest Supporter Submission:

As usual, it depends on what type of feminism we’re talking about. It also depends on what we mean by “empowerment”, and this can take us down a philosophical road in trying to discern what that word actually means. Lets keep it simple, and begin exploring this by looking at the opposite of empowerment: learned helplessness.

In a study conducted by Seligman & Maier, three groups of dogs were observed in conditions where they were administered electrical shocks. The first two groups had a choice to get away from the shocks – the third group didn’t. Over time, the third group of dogs made no attempt to get away from shocks when they most certainly had the choice. They had been taught to not even try thanks to the previous experience of not having any choice.

In another study conducted by Langer and Rodin, patients at a senior citizen home were divided into two groups. The first group (we’ll call this one the helpless group) was told to let the staff take care of them and do everything for them (it’s important to note that they still had options to do what they wanted – they were simply told to let the staff do everything). The second group (we’ll call this one the empowered group) was told they needed to take care of themselves, and even given a few extra jobs to tend after, like watering plants.

Is Feminism a Religion?

Latest Supporter Submission:

If you’ve been keeping up with the nonsense coming out of the Third Wave recently, or the reactionary noise coming from the MRA camp, then you’ve probably heard it suggested more than once that feminism is a religion.  This of course depends largely on what kind of feminism you’re referring to; the “women are people too” kind, which no one has a problem with, or the “Mario Saves the Princess so he Hates Women” kind – which is the one being called a religion.

30 Truths of My Anti- Feminism

Latest Supporter Submission:

  1. The moment men say it is in order for their women to be fornicating sluts they will become lower than sluts.
  2. Men are lower than sluts if they dare not criticise them.
  3. We know who is in power by those whom we dare not criticise.
  4. Even the US President dares not criticise sluts and he is supposed to be the world’s most powerful man.
  5. The current US President dares not criticise sluts because he knows Slut Single Mothers (SSMs) mostly vote Democrat.
  6. The failure of the Republican candidate Mitt Romney to be elected US President was because female voters realised he was referring to them in his 47% comment.
  7. Mitt Romney either did not read or decided not to take on board the advice I gave him.
  8. The patriarchy runs on marriage the way cars run on petrol.

The Tide that Turns Also Drowns: The Dangers of Feminizing Education

Latest Supporter Submission:

It’s an open secret that education has been a political chess piece to politicians since the dawn of the 20th century. What to do about each successive crisis in education has been the subject of much controversy for the better part of the last century and this one. But, the politics of education have taken a dark turn in the 21st century. For the first time, we have truly weaponized  research to create standards and an environment that are toxic to both sexes, particularly males. Feminizing education and the entirely artificial push towards girls in STEM are both bound to have serious ramifications for our future, and endangers the future boys most seriously.

Boys express a different learning style from girls due to sex-based differences in brain anatomy. There is a vast and deep body of research surrounding the notion that male and female brains are not inferior, but different from each other. In males (generally speaking), the inferior parietal lobe is larger. This region of the brain is related to spatial awareness, and is responsible for higher functioning in mathematics (Gabriel and Schmitz 2007). Because the inferior parietal lobe is smaller in females and develops later, logical mathematical learning in girls is typically slower (Lenroot et al. 2007). Boys will develop mathematical-spacial skills on average as much as four years sooner than will girls (Gurian, 2003). By forcing girls into STEM as early as possible, we are trying to get them to perform in a way that ignores biology and reason. We are using girls as political pawns for feminist propaganda and I cannot fathom a world in which that is ethical.

3 Reasons Why Women Should Not Vote

Latest Supporter Submission:

The #WhyWomenShouldNotVote hashtag started as sort of a joke. I knew that feminists would show up, scream abuse, offer no arguments, then run away crying, because, well, that’s kind of what feminists do on Twitter. The tag was meant to spark a conversation about the differences in how men and women vote, and differences in voting priorities and preferences between the genders. I’m hardly the only person in the world to be interested in these differences: researchers noted that in the 1996 election, had only men voted, Robert Dole would have won the election by 31 states. Instead, Bill Clinton won. By 31 states.

Having thought about the issue, prompted by many thoughtful comments and ideas, particularly from this blog, I have come to the conclusion that the hashtag isn’t a joke at all.

Women should not vote.

Why We Need To Fight For the Patriarchy.

Latest Supporter Submission:

We are in a transition from a traditional society (let’s call it the patriarchy) to a liberal-minded society (let’s call it a matriarchy). Men suffer quite a lot in this transition, because the laws are essentially all very patriarchal and women still expect things like child-support (something which would normally only exist in a patriarchy), while they behave as though they are in a matriarchy (wanting to sleep around and still be respected, etc.).

Now the patriarchy is actually not a society that favors men over women, and the matriarchy is not a society which favors women over men. Both societies favor men and women equally. I know a lot of MRAs do not believe this and use the draft as evidence that the patriarchy favored women more, but that is not true. The patriarchy is actually a society that favors children, while the matriarchy favors the individual (or self).

The patriarchy is a child-centered society. It is interested in birth and survival rates of children, and that is why males were drafted. Male disposability led to more children.  The patriarchy comes from difficult times, it was born in hard times, it is a very social system, an efficient system, and it’s a survival mechanism.
