I’ve been watching videos on you tube about men’s rights advocates and activists forming men’s support groups for men’s issues over the past few weeks. After doing reading and investigating this I’ve come to realize that we have been lied to.
We have been lied to by the feminists for generations. We have allowed the integration of feminist dogma to influence law and allowed them to teach new generations their ideals in schools.
I’m not against any ideas that are logical and make sense. I’m really not, but I never really look closely at feminist logic or ideas that closely until recently. After all, I grew up being told that women are strong and are equal to men and that rape is rape and should never be accepted.
Any logical, thinking human being can agree to the above paragraph. It’s not until you delve into the myths deeper that you can see the flaws, and I do called a myths because it turns out, that all their assertions about men are completely false.
Let’s look at the rape statistic every feminist pulls out on universities and colleges for students. The dogma we hear everywhere and I do mean everywhere. In the news, print, radio, even tv shows, we hear that One in Four women will be raped in the course of their college career. This is scary and instills fear into women, along with anger. This statistic is completely false and should be looked at with reason. By looking at the statistics from the places that have colleges or universities, the statistics actually show a different story. Turns out the real figure is One in almost Thirteen Hundred. (1 in 1300). And depending on the area that ratio is smaller 1 in 5000. That means rape is actually rare. So the assertion of 1 in 4 or 5 is complete and utter nonsense.
So where did that stat come from? It came from a badly written piece of drivel by a man hating feminist in the 70s who stated in her book that she wanted all but ten percent of men dead (10 percent for breeding stock). In her book she stated that 1 in 4 men would rape a woman on a college campus. No source for that stat was ever cited in that book and has been disproved by rational people over and over and over again.
Another assertion these feminists make is that women are the victims of abuse at the hands of men. That men are violent and cause most of the violence in domestic partnerships.
I used to believe that one as well, until I looked at numbers and dug deeper. The ratio of domestic violence is about 50/50. Men are abused by women just as much as women are. There is a skewed outlook here on this and women use this to their advantage that many feminists will claim they don’t.
If a man beats a woman, he is automatically thrown in cuffs and taken to jail. The woman will get support via many publicly funded means. Support groups, mental health professionals, and even battered women’s shelters.
If a woman beats a man, he is thrown in cuffs and taken to jail, and has to prove he is not at fault. Usually, the woman is in tears when the police arrive and are trained to automatically assume the man is guilty. In the rare cases where the woman is arrested, she is more likely to either be put in the drunk tank for the night and let go in the morning with no charges or if charges are laid, gets an extremely light sentence like probation.
I experienced this years ago before I became a legal adult. So fortunately I was protected by my youth and the fact the woman in question’s testimony was an outright lie.
Here is what happened. I had asked to borrow money because I need to pay someone back and I hadn’t been paid at my new job. So, when I asked my “friend’ she went into a rage. And I mean, she was nice as pie one second and then red faced and screaming at me the next. I tried to get away from this after taking her rage calmly for 10 minutes or so. I walked away. Unfortunately, we lived in an apartment complex (her being in another unit on a different floor) and when I went to the elevator she followed. All the while screaming and yelling at the top of her lungs. Berating me, calling me derogatory names and spitting. Then, because i didn’t react to her behavior, she hit me in the face. Now I have been taught not to hit women, but something triggered and I slapped her back. Open handed, and not as hard as she hit me. It was enough that it snapped her out of her rage and she stopped and went back to her unit.
Now many “Feminists” would look at that and say I was in the wrong that I shouldn’t have hit her etc etc. That “snap” in me was my instinct for self preservation, and I had felt trapped by her and when she attacked, I instinctively slapped back in defense. It stopped the attack and I managed to get away.
Feminism would have you believe that I was the aggressor in that situation. That she was defending herself with the first slap in preparation of being attacked by me a man. So in their logic, I’m at fault and the woman is the victim and shouldn’t have any responsibility or blame.
The absurdly in that feminist logic defies laughter. It is so harmful, but it permeates society so ingrained that people don’t even see the illogic to it.
To make matters worse in that situation, after she left and I got away from her rage, she called the police. She told them, that I had come to her for money (True) and that when she refused to give it to me (Lie), that I had beat her closed fisted.(Lie) She said in her police statement that she dropped to the ground to protect herself from my fists beating her (Lie) and that I continued to beat her for a few minutes (lie) and then fled the scene. Leaving her to call the police.
The absurdity in her statement is apparent when compared with my version of the story. However, if you take the two accounts and compare, most would still take the woman’s side. After all I’m a man. However, there is a slight problem of evidence is which is why the charged were dismissed. You see, at the time I was 5ft 10, and weighed approximately 175lbs. She was approximately 5ft tall and weighed approximately 110lbs wet.
When the police came to the call they made note that she was not injured and didn’t have single mark on her and refused to go to the hospital and even told police that she had no injuries. Yet in her statement, she claimed I had beat her to the ground.
Logic says that if I did that there would be injury to her in some way, even from dropping to the ground. She would have had bruising and and marks from the so called beating. There wasn’t and so when it came before a judge, the lawyers felt bad for me and didn’t want my life ruined so they “forgot” to tell her about the trial date and time and when she didn’t show my case was dismissed and the record was wiped clean (I was a minor at the time, she was an adult).
If it wasn’t for the compassion of the prosecution lawyer and mine at the time, I’m sure I would have been found guilty. Simply because she called the police first and because the woman’s word is always favored before a man’s in court. And technically under law at the time I did commit assault. So the only way to get me out of that bind was for the legal teams on both sides to do something tricky and not tell her the real trial date and time.
That was my personal experience when I was 17 years old, and even though I experienced it firsthand the violence and lies of a feminist woman, I still believed the dogma and lies they perpetuated.
Another lie they represent is that women are strong but yet are all victims. In truth this is an excuse to get their own way. If they don’t you as a man are oppressing them and so they are the victim.
When it comes to earning money, they claim there is a wage gap. This is a huge lie and one of the biggest. In Ontario, the government spent a huge amount (approx a billion dollars), to create a measure to test business and industry to find the areas were women are paid less and to create laws that force employers to pay women the same as men.
What they found was that there was no wage gap. One business, had a 3 cent wage gap. That was all. That was the only gap they found and the employer corrected the gap and when the women were asked if they noticed a difference the answer was no.
The truth is different when you look at the stats. Women are more inclined to choose different professions than men. Those “male dominated” workplaces are a half truth. There are fields that are dominated by women as well.
In the stats, it shows that the women will chose fields that give them flexibility in scheduling over money. While men will choose fields that pay them more but are more dangerous and require long hours or being away from family.
These stats make more sense when you see the stats for men concerning work place injury etc. When it comes to injuries at work, roughly only 2% are women and the rest are men. Such a huge gap! This matches with the stats.
Feminists will ignore this.
The whole idea we have to take women at their word is the core of the feminist dogma. They expect and train us men to believe this from birth. If you don’t believe this is true, then just use logic.
Women are the primary care givers of children. Even in today’s society. Women are the ones who in our formative years will teach us not to hit girls, to respect girls and even protect girls. We grow up and because it was taught to us, and reinforced over and over, it becomes part of us.
We go into adult hood believing this with the idea that women are strong and independent, but conflicts with us because we have been also been taught they are victims and we should protect them. Little girls are taught the same thing but are also taught it’s okay to hit boys simply because they see women and other little girls getting away without penalty when they hit a boy.
So really in truth, the feminists who decry the men’s issues groups as hate groups are just running on illogic and lies. They have no concept of the harm they are doing to society and men have just as much right to form groups for support and discuss men’s issues as women do.
Some of the issues are
Abuse of men by their partners (men and women)
Issues regarding homelessness (majority of men comprise the homeless, and that inclused gay teens)
The high rate of suicide in men.
Legal issues facing men.
Oppression of men throughout society.
And if you scoff at the last one then you really don’t understand what men go through. Men are definitely not privileged. We don’t get special laws to protect us, we don’t get special treatment because of our body parts.
Years ago I tried to get a loan or a grant through the government to start my own business. At the time before they cut all of them out there was all sorts for people to get. However, I noticed one thing. As a male I was not eligible for any of them.
There was grants and loans for LGBT, People of different races, women, However, if you were a white male you couldn’t get a grant or loan from the government to start your small business. I could have gotten one under the LGBT grant but that required the business to benefit the gay community solely and be non profit so I wasn’t eligible for that really since I wanted to open a coffee shop.
So my “male” privilege didn’t help me there either. All my life I’ve had to work hard for what I have. No one gave it to me, I earned it. I’m not privileged in any way by my gender. The opposite is true. I constantly hear everywhere that I am bad, and violent due to my gender and because of that I’m the cause of every problem in the world. We as men of all races are rapists, murderers, thieves and deadbeats. Any male that tells you they aren’t feeling oppressed with this kind of society is mentally flawed and indoctrinated into this feminist myth and lies.
I laugh when I see on these videos of conferences when males stand up and proudly announce that they are a feminist and are leaving their privilege at the door. Inwardly I weep, because they are just so indoctrinated, that they proudly proclaim that they are less then equal to women and that women are more. I watch their faces and listen to the tone of their voices and many actually sound scared and look around to make sure the nearest feminists smile and approves of their statement. When they do the male then relaxes and continues to speak. You hear it with the statement of “I’m so and so and I’m a feminist, and I am checking my privilege”. Or something like that. Every video I watched of these kids has them justifying their right to speak with that sentence. None of them just say I’m so and so and here is my question. Nope. They always have to apologize for being male.
And that is not equality. That is oppression of men.
