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.

A Few Differences Between the Sexes

Latest Supporter Submission:

Essentially without science we can define women and men by saying women make babies and feed infants and men do not make babies or feed infants; freeing them up to do other things with their time.

Have you ever heard of evolutionary psychology? Evolutionary psychology is based on the idea that because science and technology moves at a faster pace than we evolve, parts of our psychology have been designed for an environment that no longer exist. Parts of our psychology have been inherited from our hunter-gather past etc. We will never know if the claims of evolutionary psychology are true or not but they certainly are fascinating to explore! Here are a few evolutionary psychology posts:

I lied about being raped!

Latest Supporter Submission:

I lied about being raped and I want to say that it is something that is very easy and very tempting for women in today’s society to do. I was at university at the time. I want to tell this story in a way that does not spin me into a victim (because I am of course the villain) but I am not sure that I am very good at admitting the truth.

The guy who I accused was another student. We met at orientation and the very first thing he ever told me was a lie. “Hello my name is Renaldo”. We spoke a bit and then he disappeared. Some minutes later I saw him again, but this time he was wearing a hat. I asked him if he had finished signing into all of the courses he intended to sign up for. He then said “No I’m not in this faculty, you must have met my twin brother Renaldo. I’m Richard. Actually I’m looking for Renaldo at the moment did you see where he went?” I laughed doubting it slightly and then he went on to explain that they often dressed a like just to confuse people and because their parents love it and he seemed believable so I believed it.

Women Against Feminism, Gynocentrism and Why I am an anti-feminist!

Latest Supporter Submission:

Women Against Feminism feels like a tiny light at the end of a really dark tunnel to me and I want to say why that is. The thing is I am agnostic, but I am traditional. I have never been a feminist, I have always viewed feminism as strange. Even before I fully explored the feminist’s and anti-feminist’s movements feminism never sat well with me.

I initially tried joining the anti feminist groups on facebook, but they were all saturated with MRAs and just like the feminists they mostly viewed traditionalism as anti-equality (and therefore bad!). They even had a word to describe societal structures like this.. where feminists called this way of life patriarchal, they called it gynocentric. I have to admit it stings more the male criticism, but I suppose this is how males must feel when they hear the term “patriarchy”. Read More

I Reject the feminist label

Latest supporter submission:

I am not a feminist even though I know that not all feminists are man-haters, don’t care about men’s rights, or believe in female superiority
Because I do not want to be a part of a group that includes too many people who do believe any of the above.

I am not a feminist even though I know that some dictionaries define feminism simply as “equality”
Because I do not want to be a part of a movement where too many of their actions do not match this definition.

I am not a feminist even though I know that some feminist movements have fought for gender equity and helped give women the same rights as men
Because I do not want to be a part of the current movement that includes unjust ideas like “rape culture.”

Feminism is not about equality

Feminism is NOT about equality

What modern feminists refuse to admit is that feminism is only one side of a two-sided coin of inequality. A “movement” that advocates for the rights of one gender over another is sexist and inequal by nature… If feminists were striving for equality, then they wouldn’t be FEMinists. That’s just deductive reasoning. Being against feminism means that you’re truly for equality.

Why I'm Not A Feminist

I’m Not a Feminist

I don’t label myself as a feminist. But why, given all the inequalities that women have to suffer?

Say you identify yourself as a feminist. Somewhere in the world, there are feminists who show nude breasts for political purposes. You and many others might not approve of this. Now, each time you present yourself as a feminist, you might have to debate such radical actions before you can talk about what matters to you. Read More
