IT’S SHIT LIKE THIS, FEMINISTS – If you want to talk about rape…..

We have some tips for you.

There are a couple of things you should try to avoid….

Don’t engage in rape denial, rape erasure and rape apology – Don’t try to insist that the overwhelming majority of rapists are male, so as to cover up female rapists; don’t deny that women are socially enabled to apply much greater sexual coercion – gay-shaming, claiming if the guy doesn’t want it he’s insulting them or hates women – to men than men can on women; don’t deny that male rape victims get ignored, erased and that their rapes are often dismissed by law enforcement.…

Caitlin Moran’s Feminism Box

A few weeks ago, Caitlin Moran was part of a group debate organized by CBC in Canada on the subject of whether or not men are obsolete. Hanna Rosin’s book The End of Men was part of the premise. Rosin participated in the debate on the “yes they’re obsolete” team; Moran was on the “no they’re not” team.…

GENERAL – Language: More new words

Time for some more new, useful expressions. Let’s go:

 

Pervarikeet: This is a person who prevaricates – who wiggles and squrims and worms around to avoid telling or acknowledging the truth.

There is simple denial when presented with the facts – arguments from disbelief or quibbling with the reliability of the study or simply claiming that it says something other than it says – and when that fails there is whataboutery to deflect attention from an inconvenient truth, and then when even that fails, there is rationalization hamstering like this.

Honey Badger Radio: Anonymity For Me But Not For Thee

Show Link

Show Notes

Time: 9 PM EST/ 8 PM CST/ 6 PST

Date: 12/12/2013

MEN’S MOVEMENT – Feminism is a men’s issue, Part III

Patrick Brown on 2013-12-04 at 1:07 am said:

I think the MRM is quite rightly concerned with feminism, because feminism has poisoned relations between the sexes. Men are considered inherently up to no good in everything we say and do, and I put the blame for that squarely on feminists and their “theories”.…

GENDER STEREOTYPES – Bronies, gender policing and an effective counter-tactic

Bronies challenge the gender norms for men on several levels and they come in for a lot of shaming, as Typhonblue points out.

My Tweet to Lena Dunham, Re: Feminism, Ableism

It was Black Friday 2013, and I was depressed. I’m one of those SAD / holiday depression people. When in that mode, I use twitter to vent–nothing terrible, but negative. (It’s a bad habit.)
