Suffolk County Police Department Side-Stepping Sexist Norms Regarding Treatment of Domestic Violence

by Siobhan H

Men and those in LGBT relationships suffering abuse in Suffolk County, New York may have a better chance at getting the help they need thanks to the Domestic Violence Bureau headed by Sergeant Kelly Lynch at the SCPD.

I held a short interview over the phone with Sergeant Lynch to see how those at Suffolk County Police Department handled domestic violence cases, both as first-responders and as follow-up support.

Selective equality

Recently, there’s been quite a stir in Spain regarding work-life balance. We all know the drill: the idea that working should be compatible with taking care of children. Banishing the idea that the mother is the one who should take care of the children, while the father works.…

Letter to the badgers: Feminists don’t hate men?

What I think of this statement.

Feminists don’t hate men.
They just think they created the patriarchy to benefit themselves & to oppress women.
They just think they had all the power historically and used it to oppress women over the ages.…

Gay Men Are Not Oppressed? Really?

Britain’s National Union of Students recently claimed that LGBT student societies affiliated with the NUS should not have specific gay male representatives on the grounds that gay males are not oppressed within LGBT culture (http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2016/03/22/nus-tells-lgbt-societies-to-abolish-gay-mens-reps-because-they-dont-face-oppression/). Many people took this article and misinterpeted it as a claim that gay men are not oppressed at all, but this article is still telling of a great shift within the Social Justice crowd.…

Different Names, Same Pain

Every day, I wake up

Every day, I hear the same two words uttered in different ways

 

Every man

All men

 

What follows next is not always the same

But in the end they have the same hurtful meaning

 

Simple-minded

Sex-crazed

 

And when someone utters the words not all,

they get called different names with the same pain intended

 

Misogynist

Anti-feminist

 

Every day I hear what they proclaim that I am taught

Taught in the name of a privilege derived from a penis

 

Raping 101

Blood Spilling 101

 

Yet people wonder why I shun the names they embroider on their hats

When all I am told is that I am the source of a problem I never caused

 

Sinful

Guilty

 

What crimes have I committed in this world that deserve such scorn

When the only crime that I am guilty of is being born with a penis

 

Patriarchy

Monster

 

My whole life I spent without a father, and yet I still had male influences

But each day, the lessons I had learned remind me what I am not

 

Coward

Garbage

 

Each day I step forward, I step forward as myself

As a human that loves and not as a monster that hates

 

Hateful

Useless

 

Each day I do not stay my hand because I do not strike to cause pain

I reach my hand out to give hope to those that need it

 

Liar

Scum

 

And each night when I go to bed, the words still float in the wind

All I can feel for those that spill the verbal bloodshed is not hate

 

Degenerate

Incompetent

 

All I feel for them is pity to hold such useless fear and anger towards men

When I can see them becoming the monsters they wish existed in me

The situation in Spain

Hello Badgers, Cassius here again.

I’ve told you a few things before about my experiences with feminism and men’s rights in Spain, but now I would like to paint a broader picture for you, in case you are not familiar with the situation: Feminism is mainstream, it is a must for every political party and to disagree with a feminist is exposing yourself to lots of “machista” insults (“machista” being some kind of “misogynist”: male superiority, basically) and social isolation.…

An Afghanistan veteran’s thoughts on the draft

The genesis of this piece was to reach out to the Honey Badgers with some of my thoughts on women in “Combat Arms” Military Occupational Specialties (MOS) and the draft.  While inspired by the /pol/ cast 01 episode, I wasn’t so much responding to any specific argument but wanted to share my perspective as a former Noncommissioned Officer (NCO) and a veteran of the Afghan war.  …
