 Battle of the sexes

18.05.19. During the ’70s and ’80s, famous feminist leaders denounced marriage as “slavery” and “legalized rape” and condemned all men as predatory and abusive.
They interrupted Anzac Day at the Cenotaph in Sydney, for example, dressed in mourning black.
In those days the male journalists, as well as female journalists, condemned them.
Today, however, hatred of men is back in vogue – and much more mainstream. The evidence is everywhere.
But something significant has shifted, male journalists, faddist wimps almost to a man, have joined in the hatred.
Women journalists are more skeptical.
The hatred seems more intense in the US at present because man-hatred has been weaponised to serve the needs of the Democratic Party.
And some Republicans are mewing a kind of shoulder-to-shoulder sympathy.
The Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearings saw a respected jurist and family man with an impeccable record viciously condemned as a serial rapist on no evidence but the skillful presentation of a lie.
The Senate Judiciary Committee that confirmed his nomination was castigated for being composed predominantly of “old white men.”
However, it’s not just high-profile individuals, but all men that are currently being attacked with today’s weapon of choice, the accusation of “toxic masculinity.”
In fact, the American Psychological Association recently issued a report flat-out condemning “traditional masculinity” as “psychologically harmful” to boys and men,
And physically harmful to women, leading to sexual harassment of women.
One of the few things the APA has done right, but probably more in self-defence and an attempt to make themselves look relevant.
Attacks on men and “toxic masculinity” now dominate today’s elite sphere, particularly on university campuses
There in those moribund institutions only kept of diminishing value because of its genuine research work, nonsence degrees are awarded after being drenched with courses titled “Rethink Masculinity,” “Male Melancholia: Crisis Masculinity,” “White Men, Aggrieved Entitlement, and Violence” and “HashtagAllMen: A Reflection on Men’s Complicity in Rape Culture.”
This ever-growing antagonism toward men has developed to the point that many Democrats for whom identity politics is their one and only yardstick for personal and national morality, argue that since the last 45 presidents have been men, America must have a woman president, irrespective of ability.
With the siren song thus wailing, an ever-growing number of Democrat women are heeding the call and running for president – including Sen. Kamala Harris, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and author/activist Marianne Williamson. Others say they may jump in as well.
“Despite all the remarkable advances we have made in gender equality,” British author and journalist Tim Lott explained, “the idea that all men are the enemy of all women has been given a new lease of life, helped by the disgrace of Harvey Weinstein, the rise of Donald Trump and the successes of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.”
The Washington Post recently featured the article, “Why can’t we hate men?” by a university sociology professor Suzanna Danuta Walters, who asks: “In this moment, here in the land of legislatively legitimated toxic masculinity, is it really so illogical to hate men?”
Systematically she laid out the reasons why men should be hated by women – aye, and thinking men as well.
“So men, if you really are #WithUs and would like us to not hate you for all the millennia of woe you have produced and benefited from, start with this: Lean out so we can actually just stand up without being beaten down. Pledge to vote for feminist women only. Don’t run for office. Don’t be in charge of anything. Step away from the power. And please know that your crocodile tears won’t be wiped away by us anymore. We have every right to hate you. You have done us wrong. #BecausePatriarchy. It is long past time to play hard for Team Feminism. And win.”
Some recent articles in opposition;
* “The rise of the rebel queen: Why hatred of men is rising in America”
* “Scientists making war on ‘traditional masculinity’ are political hacks: The American Psychological Association now says being a manly man is ‘psychologically harmful’”
* “Christians urged not to think of God as Father: Female bishop says, ‘I don’t want young girls or young boys to hear us constantly refer to God as He’”
* “Are women malcontents? Why pampered, successful young women attending the best universities complain they’re oppressed”
* “The war on fathers: How the feminization of America hurts men and boys”
* “Surprise! Study confirms boys and girls are born different”
* “Many businesses are afraid to hire women: Inevitable workplace backlash against the #MeToo and ‘Believe Women’ movements”
* “Patriarchy-defending prof, Jordan Peterson, calls out ‘willful blindness’: Universities calling America ‘tyrannical patriarchy’ are gripped by ‘very deep resentment and historical ignorance’”
* Gillette ad tries ‘to cram odious politics down consumers’ throats’”
* “More women being in the workforce is NOT worth cheering: Re-thinking wild congressional response to president’s recent applause line”
* “Demonizing white men: Popular teen magazine says, ‘White male terrorism is as dangerous as Islamic extremism’”
* “How gender identity extremism at the U.N. threatens the rights of real women and girls: Policy allows ‘male sex offenders to erase criminal pasts from the public record by renaming themselves as women’
“Here’s the big question,” said journo David Kupelian, “How can intelligent, educated adults in 2019 America, where women are freer and better off than in any country or at any time in history, possibly be consumed with such unbridled hatred for an entire group that comprises fully half of the population? Especially when that half of the population has fought all of our wars, cleared all of our wilderness, invented almost everything, constructed our civilization, and protected and sacrificed itself for women and children from day one.”
It is an odd sort of war, the battle of the sexes, never in the field of human conflict has there been so much fraternisation with the enemy.

    Fortunately for me I work in a man only environment, a warehouse. A place where real work is done, heavy lifting, moving of heavy flatbeds is required, and the ability to not engage in gossip is a prime asset. An environment that is not poisoned by feminism.

      Fortunately, I too work in a small group which is mainly men and it’s pleasant. However, the rest of the place is about 80% women and they’re always bitching and playing little psychological games with each other. So much for the sisterhood.

    Another phenomena is the rise of female bloggers claiming to be anti-feminist. They start off claiming to be fed up with feminism and express sympathy with men who they feel are getting a raw deal. Over the months, they draw in many followers. But then, their message slowly starts turning around and they start criticizing men who avoid women for not ‘manning up’ and marrying to do their civic duty etc. Oldest trick in the book – bait and switch.

    How can intelligent, educated adults in 2019 America, where women are freer and better off than in any country or at any time in history, possibly be consumed with such unbridled hatred for an entire group that comprises fully half of the population?

    It is an inexplicable phenomenon that the poor and repressed revolt AFTER times get better. And so it is with Women’s rights etc etc.
