MISOGYNY – Hypocritical Accusations of Misogyny on MRM Sites and Neutering the Misogyny Bomb

One very familiar silencing tactic in gender discussions is the accusation of misogyny. Given the gynonormative value system of our culture, a charge of hating women is a scathing accusation. People have been seeing through it more and more, but it is still matter of some concern among MRM commenters.

MISANDRY – The Stereotype of the Man-Hating Feminist

Feminism and feminists get accused of misandry all the time; it’s a major accusation for a movement that claims the moral high ground and claims to be about gender equality.

Feministe is a mainstream, high traffic feminist blog. It bills itself as “In defense of the sanctimonious women’s studies set.”

Recently there was a mess of a post and comment thread that mewled and whined about how anti-circumcision people were manhandling, as opposed to criticizing and shredding, AIDS research that suggested that adult circumcision could reduce infection.  

MALE DISPOSABILITY – The Military Suicide Epidemic Is Not Just a Military Issue

Commenter dungone made a string of comments so thought-provoking on the MALE DISPOSABILITY – The Suicide Epidemic in the Army thread that I thought I would just post them with some comments of my own for your reactions and comments.

This is What Sexual Entitlement Looks Like…

I’m just going to quote at length:

 My very best vagina friend sleeps in quite late. In the hours I’ve spent lying next to her staring at the wet spot she’s unknowingly making I have become fascinated with her morning arousal. Sometimes she’ll cover her vag with her hands in her sleep because she knows I’ll try to play with it.

RAPE CULTURE – Rape Culture on Steroids and Sociopathic Self-Excusals

Want a look into the mind of a rapist waiting to happen? Here she is.

This article is not about one particular rapist-to-be and sociopath. Those we will always have with us. This article is about the structures in the culture that enable and license this particular rape culture.…

MISANDRY – Encouraging Sign – Noted Feminist Demolishes Pro-circumcision Arguments

Catherine Bennett, a well-known British feminist, has an op/ed at the Guardian that is to date the sanest, calmest, most complete and most unaswerable treatment of the circumcision question.

It should come as no surprise to anyone that a feminist is saying these things.…

MISANDRY – Gender Politics and Raising Boys

Commenter RocketFrog contirbuted a really interesting comment. I thought it merited a post of its own because it descibes something I have seen across the manosphere – men who have been disparaged and emotionally abused as little children in some way by adults caught up in the gender ideology struggles of the last couple of generations (Not to say that people weren’t harmed by traditional gender ideologies, but that is a related discussion.)
