THIS IS HOW THE BRITISH PRESS RESPONDS TO THE KILLINGS OF DISABLED CHILDREN. All of these extracts were taken from UK news websites. the final tweet is in response to a now-deleted tweet from politician Sandy Kaylan, who praised a mother for ‘euthanising’ her infant children

tania Clarence, 43, admitted to smothering three of her children, all of whom suffered from physical disabilities. Regardless of the circumstances that led to their tragic deaths, these methods of reporting are unethical and go against the British editors code of practice - which states that, once proceedings are active, the press cannot publish any material that could create substantial risk of prejudice in court. The language used in these articles (“tragic mum”, “the unbearable burden of care”, putting the word murder in scare quotes, etc) does exactly that. Reading these articles, it is clear who we are meant to “side” with.

that these rules on court proceedings are apparently not applicable to cases involving the killing of disabled children shows how little the British press (and by extension, the public) cares about the welfare of disabled people in this country. Calling these children burdens and implying they deserved to die reinforces ableism and makes the world a more dangerous place for disabled people. Yet the press does not count it as encouraging prejudice. maybe it’s because we believe the unlawful killing of disabled infants does not “count” as a real crime

This is abhorrent.

"“Moreover, principle and strategy merged in the decay of eighteenth-century and early nineteenth-century liberal devotion to “abolitionism”—to the view that, whether the institution be slavery or any other aspect of statism, it should be abolished as quickly as possible, since the immediate abolition of statism, while unlikely in practice, was to be sought after as the only possible moral position. For to prefer a gradual whittling away to immediate abolition of an evil and coercive institution is to ratify and sanction such evil, and therefore to violate libertarian principles. As the great abolitionist of slavery and libertarian William Lloyd Garrison explained: “Urge immediate abolition as earnestly as we may, it will, alas! be gradual abolition in the end. We have never said that slavery would be overthrown by a single blow; that it ought to be, we shall always contend.”"

Feminism is cancer.

That third one isn’t even a feminist issue though…
Aren’t MRAs responsible for making their own men’s shelters?

Feminists have actively opposed male shelters before.

I love how this is such an MRA talking point.

"Oh, we WOULD agitate for men’s shelters but FEMINISTS OPPOSE US!!!"

hey dipfuck do u know how activism works

MRAs HAVE set up men’s shelters and others have advocated for why they are needed, including Erin Pizzey, who started one of the first women’s shelters on the planet. She provided evidence that women could also be abusive, and that men also needed help, and feminists responded by shooting her dog and creating enough death threats to run her out of the country for 15 years. One man, and MRA, for the record, ran the only men’s shelter in Canada for years, but could never get government funding because funding was only available for women. Eventually, he gave his last dollar to the shelter, went bankrupt, and killed himself.
By “oppose” we do not mean “feminists didn’t help us enough”. We mean that feminists committed acts of violence, threatened lives, and made sure that the system was set up so that a men’s shelter is nearly impossible to run, while women’s shelters get billions. 

Trust me, the lack of men’s shelters is not for lack of trying on the part of MRAs. It is because any mention of helping men is quickly silenced, whether feminists have to pull a fire alarm or shoot a dog. Whatever it takes to stop the “horrible misogyny” of giving men a small fraction of the assistance women get.

"Catharine MacKinnon maintains that ‘the private is a sphere of battery, marital rape and women’s exploited labor.’ In this way, privacy and family are reduced to nothing more than aspects of the master plan, which is male domination. Democratic freedoms and the need to keep the state’s nose out of our personal affairs are rendered meaningless. The real reason our society cherishes privacy is because men have invented it as an excuse to conceal their criminality. If people still insist that the traditional family is about love and mutual aid—ideals which, admittedly, are sometimes betrayed—they’re ‘hiding from the truth.’ The family isn’t a place where battery and marital rape sometimes happen but where little else apparently does. Sick men don’t simply molest their daughters, they operate in league with their wives to ‘breed’ them for that purpose."

"And let’s put one lie to rest for all time: the lie that men are oppressed, too, by sexism—the lie that there can be such a thing as ‘men’s liberation groups.’ Oppression is something that one group of people commits against another group, specifically because of a ‘threatening’ characteristic shared by the latter group—skin, color, sex or age, etc. The oppressors are indeed FUCKED UP by being masters, but those masters are not OPPRESSED. Any master has the alternative of divesting himself of sexism or racism—the oppressed have no alternative—for they have no power but to fight. In the long run, Women’s Liberation will of course free men—but in the short run it’s going to cost men a lot of privilege, which no one gives up willingly or easily. Sexism is NOT the fault of women—kill your fathers, not your mothers".

FEMALES ARE SAYING YES TOO.

Granted, it’s less than males, but they are still saying yes.

THAT MEANS THAT NOT ONLY DO WE NEED TO DO A BETTER JOB OF TEACHING MALES TO NOT RAPE, BUT WE NEED TO TEACH FEMALES TO KNOW WHAT RAPE IS.

IT IS RAPE IF YOU WERE GOING TO AND THEN CHANGE YOUR MIND.

IT IS RAPE IF YOU “LEAD HIM ON” BUT DON’T ACTUALLY WANT SEX.

IT IS RAPE IF YOU HAVE BEEN TOGETHER FOR A LONG TIME.

So don’t only accuse males of perpetuating rape culture, because females need re-educating too. ”

sure they experience homophobia, and get discriminated against for being gay sure, but what they experience is NOT fetishization

the definition of fetishization is when you are REDUCED TO A SEXUAL OBJECT ON SYSTEMIC SCALE, an object that is typically seen as UNWANTED, NONSEXUAL AND EVEN DISGUSTING by a gaze that has the power to REDUCE YOU to a sexual fetish in the eyes of society

straight women do not have the mobility in this society to do this to cis white gay men, who actually in many contexts have more power than them in our society

"i almost wish all boys/men had to take a class where the entire class was women telling stories about their experiences with assault rape, harassment, sexism etc and the men were NOT ALLOWED TO TALK AT ALL and just had to listen - like maybe they’d watch documentaries or recordings of women and girls where their identities were protected or whatever and maybe there’d be some speeches by activists on larger social trends/statistics and that’s it and that’s all - no papers no “discussions” just them being quiet and listening

this would actually work well with like every oppressed/privileged group

"Sex in a capitalist society isn’t really sex. Sex involves an act of intimacy between two people. Like an intimate conversation, it could take place between two strangers or two people who know each other well: the intimate conversation could mean a lot to both people or mean very little. But either way, it’s between two human beings who have something to share with each other. But capitalist patriarchy turns sex into a commodity that men obtain to get something else… Robbed of the humanity of communion, sex becomes a mere means to an end, a tool of violence that enables men to achieve domination over an object."

Loving women and hating men are mutually exclusive acts

It is impossible to truly love and respect women without being against patriarchy / misogyny / men.

If you are prioritizing men over women it is impossible to love them.

Thus, if you are not hating men as a class you aren’t really loving women either.

I dont know.. kinda seems like “boys vs girls” to me. But hey, I’m a firm believe in “Actions speak louder than words!” So lemme just see what feminists have been doi- oh…

Feminists fight to hurt men (not just radical feminists either) (this info is from oratorasaurus)

Father’s rights group want shared parenting (equal custody) to be the default if both parents want custody and neither parent is unfit. They feel that men should not be punished for being men, and that women should not be awarded custody to their kids simply for being women. Currently women are awarded primary custody almost all the time, even if the husband was the stay-at-home Dad and the woman was the breadwinner.

Feminists fought against this. You can read NOW’s own statement here. Also note their usage of anti-male lies, i.e. “fathers are abusive, don’t give them custody.” That is from 1997, but still remains valid today.

Men want protection against false rape allegations. They feel that a man’s life should not be ruined simply on the allegation of a woman who may be a vindictive liar. Currently, a woman can accuse a man of rape for no reason, and the man’s name is splashed in the paper and his life is ruined. So, they fought for laws granting men anonymity until charged with the crime of rape—not convicted, just charged.

Feminists fought against this, causing it to fail. Also see here, the London Feminist Network campaigning to defeat the proposal.

“The London Feminist Network is a campaigning organisation uniting London based feminist groups and individuals in activism.”

Men want an end to the justice system favouring women simply because they are women, and giving men harsher sentences simply because they are men.

Feminists fought against this, arguing that no woman should be sent to jail, even women who had murdered multiple people.

Men want equal treatment when victims of domestic violence, and to not be arrested for the crime of “being male” under primary aggressor policies.

Feminists fought against this by trying to suppress evidence showing that half of domestic violence is done by women, by threatening the researchers with bomb threats, death threats, etc. Modern, younger feminists are doing it as well.

And sadly, they were successful in this effort of propaganda. For decades, and continuing today, violent men are (rightfully) convicted and punished by the state, while violent women are left to freely terrorize and harm their partners.

The feminist definition of domestic violence has skewed arrest and prosecution philosophies, resulting primarily in having only male batterers criminally pursued.

Men want female rapists to be arrested, charged, and convicted with rape. In Western countries, women are rarely punished when raping men, due to the biased legal system. In some countries, women cannot be punished when raping men, since rape is defined as a male-perpetrated crime.

Feminists fought against this in India, arguing that “there is a physicality [in] rape” and that it would make things “more complicated for judges.”

Feminists fought against this in Israel, claiming that changing the law would result in men filing false rape claims.

Men don’t want to be thrown in jail because they lost their jobs and temporarily cannot pay child support.

Feminists fought against this, trying to lower the amount to $5000 before a man is guilty of a felony for not paying child support. If a man loses a decent-paying job, he will now be a felon, go to jail, lose his right to vote, AND be unable to find future jobs—if he cannot regain an equal-paying job within a few months.

Men want equal economic support and help from the government. When the recession hit, male-dominated fields like construction lost millions of jobs, while female-fields like education and healthcare gained jobs. So the government proposed an economic stimulus for those fields.

Feminists successfully fought against this, arguing that it was discrimination to support men, and caused the government to give money to women who didn’t deserve it. Hundreds of professional feminists complained against the “sexism” of helping men (who had lost jobs) and not women (who had gained jobs).

A representative of the Michigan National Organization for Women testified in opposition to the Revocation of Paternity Act, which stopped the old law which stated that if a woman was married and cheated on her husband, the resulting child is considered to be legally the husband’s and the biological father had no legal rights to fight for custody or parenting time with his biological child.

As you can see, the claim that feminism fight for men’s rights is a blatant lie. Don’t believe any feminists that say that. Feminists fight for women’s rights. That is a good thing. Feminists also are happy to harm men’s rights, as shown above. That is a bad thing. Feminism is about female privilege, not equality.

Some may argue that these cases of feminists harming men is not “representative” of feminism. I ask you: Are there any cases of feminists helping men? No. Yet, there are many cases of feminists harming men.

It is reasonable to conclude from these facts that feminism fights to harm men.

many feminist leaders were borderline genercidal. In fact Valerie Solanas, who helped to shape modern patriarchy theory, and who’s writing is still taught today in womens studies classes, not only attempted to assassinate Andy Warhol, but also wrote a book called the S.C.U.M. Manifesto (or feminist Mein Kompf), which was about gendercide, and she is still hailed as a feminist hero to this day. this book is still used in womens studies classes despite the fact that it proposes reducing the male population to 10% and using them for breeding purposes.

men actually have less rights than women. men are also demonized as rapists due to unequal rape laws that favor women. when you analyze the situation you’ll find that women rape almost as often as men (about 40% of rapists are women) and men are raped just as often if not more than women.

In 2008, a law was passed in England and Wales that allowed long-term domestic violence victims who killed their abuser to be charged with the lesser charge of manslaughter, but this only applies to women

In California and Montana, a woman can name any man she likes as the father, he gets a letter in the mail, if he does not prove he isn’t the father within 30 days he is now the father and must payHe cannot contest it. And DNA tests to prove paternity are not considered proof by the courts.

Women who falsely accuse a man of rape, who would be sent to prison for 10+ years if convicted, only gets fined or a slap on the wrist.

There is also the gender bias in the Probation Departments:

A higher score on the Probation Assessment Tool (PAT) means a recommendation that could lead to eventual dismissal of charges. A lower score means probation or lockup, not to mention the juvenile delinquent tag. [Judge] Hunt claims PAT routinely rewards girls with 14 extra points for gender alone, while boys get 0. 

Then there are studies that show women who fail to pay child support are incarcerated only 1/8th as often as men with similar violations.

The feminist definition of domestic violence has skewed arrest and prosecution philosophies, resulting in having mostly male batterers criminally pursued, and female batterers left alone.

Men who are falsely accused of rape can have their names published and their lives ruined even if they are not convicted or charged - their accuser is protected and is likely to face no punishment, or a light one.

Oh… hmm… well…

I guess my research is done then.

Anonymous asked: Since you're a lover of books, I'm wondering if you've ever read Ayn Rand and her books? If so, what are your thoughts? I keep seeing her books advertised online or in my school library but I've seen people who hold problematic ideas (profiling, racism, ETC) who view her as an inspiration.. and I'm just not sure how much I want to touch her work now...

edmondvdantes:

the-capitalist:

susannacole:

I haven’t read any of her works, but looking at when she lived, I can’t say I’d be surprised if she had racist views or promoted profiling. This is not to say people don’t still hold those ideas, but I feel in the past, that kind of thinking was even more integrated collectively in cultures, and particularly amongst white and privileged people. I was reading a book about the history of my neighborhood and this was I believe in the 1800s in which people were suggesting all blacks should be enslaved again, as if it was doing them a favor and I think, how absolutely disgusting that is. I’d like to think if I lived then, I would know better and have been more of a progressive thinker, but so much of it is the influence of an individual’s environment, you know? If you grow up surrounded by a lot of people who think a certain way, it’s harder to break out of that and challenge that and come up with a new way of thinking. People are vulnerable and impressionable, especially children. 

I’d recommend you read Ayn Rand though, if you’re really curious, if you think that she’s influenced people you feel hold racist beliefs. There’s really only one way to find out and then you can decide for yourself, what you think of her. I feel it’s important anyway, to read books by people we disagree with, by people who hold very different beliefs and world views, to stretch and grow the mind and either destruct or reaffirm and strengthen your own ideas. It’s good to know where other people are coming from, even if you don’t agree. It’ll help immensely in getting along in life. 

Racism is the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism. It is the notion of ascribing moral, social or political significance to a man’s genetic lineage—the notion that a man’s intellectual and characterological traits are produced and transmitted by his internal body chemistry. Which means, in practice, that a man is to be judged, not by his own character and actions, but by the characters and actions of a collective of ancestors.

Racism claims that the content of a man’s mind (not his cognitive apparatus, but its content) is inherited; that a man’s convictions, values and character are determined before he is born, by physical factors beyond his control. This is the caveman’s version of the doctrine of innate ideas—or of inherited knowledge—which has been thoroughly refuted by philosophy and science. Racism is a doctrine of, by and for brutes. It is a barnyard or stock-farm version of collectivism, appropriate to a mentality that differentiates between various breeds of animals, but not between animals and men.

Like every form of determinism, racism invalidates the specific attribute which distinguishes man from all other living species: his rational faculty. Racism negates two aspects of man’s life: reason and choice, or mind and morality, replacing them with chemical predestination. - Ayn Rand

There’s the answer.
