I feel that ‘man-hating’ is an
honorable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to
class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them. Robin Morgan, Ms.
I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig.
Since marriage constitutes slavery for women, it is clear that the women’s movement must concentrate on attacking this institution. Freedom for women cannot be won without the abolition of marriage.

The family is a
patriarchal institution devoted to the oppression and enslavement of women and

At the Las Vegas concert, men died protecting women, using their bodies as
shields and standing up in the middle of gunfire to direct the women to safety.
The New York Post reports that one woman said she "was running away and a couple
of guys said, 'Hey, come stand behind us,' and boom, they went down.” Heather
Melton has described how she felt her husband, Sonny, being shot in the back,
fatally, as he shielded her from the rain of bullets.
Feminists like Gloria Feldt think the height
of feminism is to work 80 hours a week at the office,
hook up with an assortment of random men and kill your baby every other year or so.
Daphne Patai wrote a great book about what's wrong with American feminism called Heterophobia. One of the consequences of such feminism is that innocent flirting by men is seen by women as sexual harassment. Patai quotes an Australian author Garner who wrote:
Why should flirting be harmful? Why must it mean something beyond itself. It's play? It's the little God Eros, flickering and flashing through the plod of our ordinary working lives.... Feminism is meant to free us not take the joy out of everything.
But that is precisely the problem. What Garner is calling "Joy" and "Play" has been effectively reconceptualized by many feminist theorists as the patriarchy oppressing women through the very "institution" of heterosexuality.
Like other women who have written critically of feminism, Garner found herself instantly vilified, her words and attitudes distorted, her motives assumed to be mercenary.
One of the stories that struck me that Dr. Patai wrote about was the story of Dr. Lamb.
Professor Lamb was an enthusiastic and kind teacher who taught a politics and religion class in which he encouraged students to present all points of view. If the other point of view wasn't being presented he'd sometimes play the Devil's advocate. One of those points of view was about false allegations of rape. One student, Tania Mortensen denied that women every lie about rape. She insisted that women must be believed. Two other students, Michelle Gretzinger and Bonita Rai supported her view. Mortensen, Gretzinger and Rai accused Lamb of sexual harassment. They claimed that Lamb had created a "hostile environment" by challenging their position and characterizing them as "man haters". When their accusations didn't bring down Dr. Lamb, Gretzinger took Dr. Lamb to court and accused him of raping her. During the case it became clear that she was fabricating the charges and she lost. Despite that, the University of Hawaii settled with her by giving her $175,000. The University may have settled in order to avoid larger law suit costs but in the long run this will only encourage more women to make more false allegations of rape. Notice how Gertzinger who supported the notion that women don't make false allegations of rape, made a false allegation of rape. The very belief that she was angry at Dr. Lamb for denying she proved wrong by her own actions.
False allegations of rape transfer big bucks to the accusers but besides hurting the man they accuse they also hurt women in general. Dr. Lamb who used to enthusiastically help both male and female students in his class said that:
"I used to love to teach. Not any more. I used to love to interact with students and stimulate them to think critically. Not any more. I used to believe that university campuses promoted free speech an the truth. Not any more. I sued to believe students when they would tell me things. Not any more."
"I still avoid interacting with women I don't know and trust. I rarely feel good about going to school. I still avoid meeting female students in my office, unless I know someone else will be there. ..
FEMISA is an email list devoted to issues of gender and international relations where there is a lot of male bashing. Daphne Patai wrote that in the face of mind numbing male bashing:
"I a often reminded of a scene I repeatedly witnessed years ago when I was living in Paris. At the post office, toward the end of the week, working-class men who were obviously immigrant laborers in France (Greek and Turkish men mostly , at that time) used to line up to send money home, often to places so remote that long discussions ensued at the counter as the clerks tried to figure out just which particular village or island was addressed. I used to stand in line behind these men, week after week, askign myself: What keeps them coming back here? Badly dressed, surely living in poor accommodations, yet faithful, determined to support their families, why do they do it? Nothing in the feminist vision articulated by FEMISA's sophisticated and international-minded subscribers allows one to understand the behavior of such men..."
Feminism creates paranoia toward men and as such ruins romantic relationships between women and men. Britt is a woman who mentioned how feminism affected her relationships in the following video.
Cassie Jaye wrote a documentary called The Red Pill about the Men's Right Movement. She started out viewing MRAs (Mens Rights Activists) in a hostile way but grew to be compassionate toward them. Her film was met with hostility. In her talk below she discusses her learning experience while writing the documentary and why she is no longer a feminist.
Feminists attack women who don't agree with them. Feminism should be for the rights of all women not just women with the official feminist opinion. Here Daisy Cousens tells about her experience with feminists.
The third wave of feminism attacks masculinity. As a result it weakens the Wests ability to defend women against the attack on women by Islam. Mark Tapson gave an excellent talk about this.
Feminist propaganda is often about how bad men are. Here are some examples to counter that.
There are some real great feminists out there. Here is a story about one of them.
