DOUBLE STANDARDS – Disproportionate violence and false equivalence

There is a clear gendered double standard in society when it comes to interpersonal violence, whether it is physical or emotional.

MALE DISPOSABILITY – Mary P. Koss, rape apologist, defines male rape victims out of existence

Mary P. Koss is a widely-quoted writer on the incidence of rape. Her methods and her claims have been controversial. In 2009 a controversy developed around a paper of hers – articles and threads here, here, and here.

She is an influential writer on the subject and her methods and results deserve scrutiny.

MALE DISPOSABILITY – DOD to lift the ban on women in combat – Whoopdy-doo – Let’s see if they manage to keep from fucking this up.

And the signs are not good. Judging from their stated motive for lifting the ban, they have it exactly backwards.

“Advocates have long said that banning women from elite combat roles was not only discriminatory, but also prevented women from reaching more prestigious military ranks and receiving promotions.”

When these advocates complained the ban was discriminatory, I feel confident in guessing they were complaining about discrimination against women.…

MALE DISPOSABILITY – The hereditary warrior class

Feminism is a men’s issue.

 Amanda Marcotte and others repeatedly insist that feminism is good for what ails men, in other words that feminists and women get to dictate to men what solutions are valid for men’s issues.

MISANDRY – Trying to get services for a male victim of domestic violence

This story will come as no surprise to anyone familiar with what male victims of domestic abuse face when it comes to getting taken seriously and getting any kind of services in their time of need. But there are lots of denialists out there, some out of self-interest because they think victimhood is a female prerogative or perhaps out of macho posturing because they like to think men are invulnerable – whatever the reason, there are lots of people in denial about the vulnerability of men to Intimate Partner Violence.…

DOUBLE STANDARDS – And Sexist Piggery – Her Husband Has No Say In the Matter, Of Course

Caroline Hax had an article recently in which a woman came to her about her husband who didn’t want her pregnancy to continue. He didn’t want another child. This pregnancy was the result of years of IVF attempts, and the husband had changed his mind at some point.…

Male Rape Victims Need Not Apply

The military has a problem with sexual assault.
