I was listening to Saturday’s coast-to-coast and a woman came on to tell us all that patriarchy is the reason why everything’s wrong in the world. And that men being in charge is why there’s rape and torture and men have made a huge mess of it all. She ended by saying that the old goddess religions were peaceful because ‘women are communal.’
It should be noted that neither the guest nor the host disagreed with her assessment and the host gave a ‘you go grrl’ nod of agreement. Both were male.
I find these kinds of assertions, that women are non-violent and men are violent monsters, to be incredibly ironic.
Why? Because shame is violence. And what she’s doing is visiting violence on others.
It’s like watching someone beat the crap out of someone else for not being a pacifist.
It should be noted that this kind of mainstream misandry is both pervasive and rarely challenged. That means this society, which according to gynocentrists is oppressing women, is putting a continual psychic beat down on men.
I’m going to practice my rueful chuckle right now.
