The public is largely unconcerned about men's welfare on a raft of separate issues. In fact if anyone tries to bring up male issues they are usually attacked on so-called progressive boards by people who pretend to champion issues of gender discrimination.

The usual response I get when I mention male rape from feminists is, "it's just men raping other men (so they deserve it)".

One in four men in the US will spend at least one night behind bars in their lifetime.

That's just nonsense. Anyone saying that is insane.

I didn't mean only male prisoners. Women prisoners experience torture as well. This isn't a gender thing in my book.

It's a gender thing because (1) the vast majority of those effected are of one gender and (2) because the lack of attention given to the issue is caused in part by the societal neglect and prejudice against men.

Anyone saying that is insane.

When I say "(so they deserve it)" the parentheses are meant to indicate that part goes unspoken. It's not exactly right either. It's more like, "it's just men raping other men (so they don't really count as victims)"

It's not insanity. It's a corollary of the feminist concept of collective guilt of all men. (aka "the patriarchy") As a sex you have to be either criminal or victim and men are the criminals, while women are the victims - universally. Sex war.

The same logic is why feminists usually see no problem at all with the Violence Against Women Act's discrimination against male victims of domestic violence. Men can never be victims because only women are ever victims. Therefore it makes sense to pass a law saying male victims can't receive any aid from the federal government.

Taken together with conservative's views that men ought to "stand up for themselves" the result is an across the board conclusion that men don't deserve to be helped by society and to the contrary have to be reigned in by society on account of their brutal barbaric nature.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

Marx


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
