For the feminists who still don’t get it.

Posted: December 16, 2013 in Uncategorized

I was in the middle of writing a blog entry on explaining the victimhood feminism loves to entrench itself with. I ended up scrapping it because I went way off point and spent two pages rambling on about something that was in no way related to victim complexes. Maybe I’ll turn that blog into something more salient in the future, but before that I have to address something I saw about 30 minutes ago. Sometimes I’m stuck for blog ideas and have to go looking for stuff, today this gem landed in my lap:

http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/ellie-slee/durham-university-feminism_b_4438952.html

So, I’m friends with a guy called Mike Buchanan on Facebook, he’s the leader of a new political party called Justice 4 men and boys, and the women who love them. He fights for, funnily enough, justice, particularly in the family courts with regard to custody. Facebook is a great tool, for someone who created a false profile (that’s me, in case I haven’t mentioned it enough), it’s unbelievable that I managed to randomly add someone like Mike, whose blog presents some outstandingly good stuff.

In the article above, which is painful reading, his party is woefully misinterpreted, probably on purpose, by the author who spouts some of the most predictable, outdated feminist claptrap you’re likely to see. The mention of the gender wage gap should automatically rouse suspicion.

And, I don’t want to dwell on this because it will derail the thread, but the article she links to in order to justify the gender wage gap is horrendous. It compares median wages, which we all know is an apples to oranges situation, and then outright states that “Full-time pay for men increased by 1.8% to £556 a week and went up by 2.2% for women to £459.” So it actually shows that wages for women increased more than men, yet still use a misleading system to compare overall wages!! It leaves me speechless. I didn’t read the whole article because it just seemed to utterly full of victimhood. Maybe I should, maybe by not finishing the article I’ve missed the cast iron proof that shows women are discriminated against in pay just because they’re women. Just one example of feminist victimhood.

Anyway, back to the point, Mike’s party is deliberately misrepresented by the author. This is the sort of victim complex I’m talking about, they take something that, in context, actually presents a pretty decent point and, rather than try and actually have a sensible, adult debate about it, take it massively out of context, add a heavy dose of editing and then present it as stand-alone truth in order to show how much men hate women. Victimhood 101, it’s something that is a pretty common tactic. Again, the problem with it is that the article linked above will have such a rabid base of confirmation-bias-loving-chip-on-their-shoulder feminists that they will accept the quote as verbatim with no desire to actually go and research for themselves. If feminists were bothered about actual research they wouldn’t harp on about the wage gap, or accuse all men of being rapists.

But that’s not even the worst thing. She links to a ‘beautiful ode to contemporary womanhood’ in the form of a poem. Normally, these blog entries are pretty long, often maxing out at 2000 words or so. Not this time, I’m pretty much going to finish here. I’ll develop the ideas of feminists victimhood on another blog, another time, but for now I would like to post that ‘beautiful ode’ to womanhood, and then I’d like to post something I wrote, a re-wording as such which presents the view of the world as I see it. As I’ve said in previous blogs, I have no problem with highlighting problems women face, I do have a problem with treating them as if they are the only problems that matter, or even the only problems that occur. For every problem a woman faces, I can think of a problem that a man faces that either receives little or no recognition in comparison. I’ve tried to reflect that in my poem, situations that men have faced that if the reverse were true wouldn’t have gone unnoticed.

The ‘beautiful ode’ is written from a gender swapped perspective, imagining if all the crimes against women were happening to men and how we would feel. I’ve taken a slightly different tack in that I write about problems that men do face but that are completely untouched or unrecognised, just to try and show that men do face problems. The thing I take umbrage to about the ‘ode’ is that, typically, it presents such a one sided view, it fails to take into account all forms of discrimination or double standards and only focuses on women, as if their suffering is worth more. Victimhood 101.

Anyway, I present For The Men Who Still Don’t Get It by Carol Diehl

What if
all women were bigger and stronger than you
And thought they were smarter
What if
women were the ones who started wars
What if
too many of your friends had been raped by women wielding giant dildos
and no K-Y Jelly
What if
the state trooper
who pulled you over on the New Jersey Turnpike
was a woman
and carried a gun
What if
the ability to menstruate
was the prerequisite for most high-paying jobs
What if
your attractiveness to women depended
on the size of your penis
What if
every time women saw you
they’d hoot and make jerking motions with their hands
What if
women were always making jokes
about how ugly penises are
and how bad sperm tastes
What if
you had to explain what’s wrong with your car
to big sweaty women with greasy hands
who stared at your crotch
In a garage where you are surrounded
by posters of naked men with hard-ons
What if
men’s magazines featured cover photos
of 14-year-old boys
with socks
tucked into the front of their jeans
and articles like:
“How to tell if your wife is unfaithful”
or
“What your doctor won’t tell you about your prostate”
or
“The truth about impotence”
What if
the doctor who examined your prostate
was a woman
and called you “Honey”
What if
You had to inhale your boss’s stale cigar breath
as she insisted that sleeping with her
was part of the job
What if
You couldn’t get away because
the company dress code required
you wear shoes
designed to keep you from running
And what if
after all that
women still wanted you
to love them.

  

And I present my counter poem For The Feminists Who Still Don’t Get It by John Salmon

 

What if

All men were demonised for their strength

And told they were stupid

What if

Men were shamed into dying in wars by women

What if

Too many boys were raped by women in the guise of teachers

And no justice done

What if

The correctional facility worker

Who was supposed to rehabilitate you

Was a woman

Who sexually abused you

What if

The possession of a vagina

Was the sole reason for getting a job, the 41%

What if

You’re attractiveness to women depended

On the size of your wallet and your penis

What if

Every time you approached a woman for a date

They accused you of harassment and had you arrested

What if

Women were always making jokes

About how ugly un-circumcised penises were

And how circumcision is a non-issue

What if

You had to explain how you were groped

To a condescending woman with a grudge

Who laughed at you

In a room where you are surrounded

By certificates handed down by feminised Universities

What if

Online newspapers featured articles

On how to train your man like a dog

With comments from women

That laughed and agreed

Or articles like:

‘are all men rapists after all?”

Or

“Are men obsolete?”

Or

“Gynaecologists forced to stop treating men.”

What if

You were a man with breast cancer

And were turned away from treatment

Because you weren’t a woman.

What if

You had to inhale your boss’ overly sweet perfume

As she laughed at you

For claiming you were sexually harrassed

What if

You couldn’t get away because

You had to pay thousands

In child support

Io a demanding ex-wife

Who spent it all on herself and not the child

And what if

After all that

Women still wanted you

To love them.

 

If you ever needed a reason why I dislike feminism, why I dislike the poisonous movement that breeds discontent and hatred, that breeds a one-sided attack on society as a whole, that breeds victimhood everywhere it’s grubby little fingers touch, that breeds uncertainty and fear, that breeds injustice and discontent, that stays silent on issues that it can’t defend, that misdirects arguments and quotes out of context, if ever you needed a reason, I’ve just given you one.
