Female Violence, society’s blind spot – Badger Talk 5

Most men’s issues advocates and activists, especially those whose focus is on issues surrounding intimate partner and sexual violence, already know the sex of the individual taking an action doesn’t change its nature… but what about the rest of society?…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 24: Women Aren’t Violent….My Ass!

After touching upon male disposability and how superheroes were attempted to influence men to enlist in the military last time, I think what this conversation should evolve into now is how violent women actually can be and are if not taught to temper their own emotions early in life.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 15: Cosplay is not Consent? Then Why Did You Jump On Me?

So since the past few years have seen a lot of signs talking about cosplay, slut shaming, and groping at various geek culture conventions. I couldn’t help but poke my head into this because of my own experience. Full disclosure here, I have been going to anime conventions since 2003 when I was 17 at the first Ikasucon in Cincinnati, Ohio.…

By Karn33333

An Irreverent Look at the Friendzone

Are You in a Relationship with the Wrong Woman?

Too often, men who are just getting into a relation, end up finding that the relationship they try to build falls apart and they want to know what they’re doing wrong. The harsh reality is that they are not doing anything wrong, except for the fact that they’re dating the wrong type of women for them. …

FEMALE DISPOSABILITY – Yes, it is a thing

There won’t be many posts on female disposability because after all it’s not really a feature of our gender system, but there is such a thing as female disposability and it is worth looking at. Commenter Rebecca mentioned it in passing in reference to my passing mention of it on the most recent post on male disposability and it occurred to me it was time to put all this disposability into context. …
