Women need to Speak Out on Feminism and the Hateful Ideology it Represents


By Carey Roberts

March is Women's History Month. Time to prepare ourselves for the annual Sista-fest of narcissistic victim-mongering, gleeful male-bashing, and shameless prevarication.

How's this for breathless overstatement, courtesy of President Obama's March 2 proclamation for Women's History Month: "Countless women have steered the course of our history...breaking barriers on athletic fields and battlefields."

Countless women on battlefields have altered the course of history?

Yes, by allowing a far stronger enemy force to decimate and despoil their ranks! (But count your blessings — at least the president didn't spell "history" with "her.")

Obama then deplored the fact that men "still receive higher pay on average for the same work." That myth was debunked on the Department of Labor's website, but Obama's operatives quickly censored the document before any damage was done:

Years ago the women's movement stopping working for gender equality and initiated a campaign of intimidation, censorship, and male demonization.

Recently the National Collegiate Athletic Association ran an advertisement on its website depicting a man gently cradling his son with these words: "All I want for my son is for him to grow up knowing how to do the right thing."

Who could ever get upset over something like that?

The Women's Media Center, that's who. The Gender Guerillas got heartburn because the ad was sponsored by the pro-life group Focus on the Family. So last week they forced the NCAA to yank the ad.
(Shame on the NCAA for its lame acquiescence.)

Like the beguiling schoolgirl who keeps elaborating on a little White Lie because everyone has stopped listening to her, the feminist claims have become increasingly shrill.

Take a March 2 BBC headline that screamed, "UN Warns HIV/AIDS Leading Cause of Death in Women." The article went on to claim that "up to 70% of women worldwide have been forced to have unprotected sex." (Note the red-meat words designed to summon every chivalrous male within hailing distance: "forced" and "unprotected.")

The BBC article provided few details and didn't even concede the name of the report. So I set out to search out every nook and cranny of the UNAIDS website.

I never did locate the document.

But according to the UNAIDS, there were two million AIDS-related deaths in 2008, about one million of whom were females. And according to the WHO World Health Report, 8.6 million women die of cardiovascular disease each year.

So is AIDS the leading cause of death for women? Not by a long shot.

And the 70% figure? Well, that number keeps making the rounds every few years.

Four years ago the Washington Times came up with this corker, "A 2005 U.N. Population Fund report found that 70 percent of married women in India were victims of beatings or rape."

The claim turned out to be a hoax and the Times was forced to retract its indictment of Indian husbands. But keep repeating the 70% number and one of these days it's going to stick!

One of my favorite columnists, Barbara Kay, recently pondered the lessons from the sinking of the Titanic in 1912. Noting that 75% of women, and only one in five men, survived the hellish incident, she writes:

"According to the feminist mystique, these men should have been controlling, egocentric, self-serving bullies, for whom women were nothing more than sexual and domestic conveniences, little better than slaves. They should all have been candidates for anger management, not a chivalry so breathtakingly selfless that they almost to a man went to watery graves in stoic humility so that total strangers might live, simply because of their sex."

So instead of "fetishing the victimhood of women," Kay proposes, Why not celebrate the manliness of men on April 15, the date of the Titanic's sinking?

Such an observance might free ourselves of the foolishness, the excess, and the chauvinism that has become Women's History Month.

It's misogynistic to speak out against misandry ? Someone sure has been fucked in the head by femi-nazi propoganda.

(Clue : It's you)

Zardoz: You have been raised up from Brutality, to kill the Brutals who multiply, and are legion. To this end, Zardoz your God gave you the gift of the Gun. The Gun is good!
Exterminators: The Gun is good!
Zardoz: The Penis is evil! The Penis shoots Seeds, and makes new Life to poison the Earth with a plague of men, as once it was. But the Gun shoots Death and purifies the Earth of the filth of Brutals. Go forth, and kill! Zardoz has spoken

Consuella: [speaking into her ring as she observes Zed asleep in his cage] The Brutal is now in fourth hour of unconscious sleep. It's astonishing that Homo Sapiens spends so much time in this vulnerable condition at the mercy of its enemies. Is there any data on the sleeping-patterns of primitive people?
The Tabernacle: Is that a priority request?

Consuella: Of course, we all know the physical process involved, but not the link between stimulus and response. There seems to be a correlation with violence, with fear. Many hanged men died with an erection. You are all more or less aware of our intensive researches into this subject. Sexuality declined probably because we no longer needed to procreate. Eternals soon discovered that erection was impossible to achieve. And we are no longer victims of this violent, convulsive act which so debased women and betrayed men.

Check out this story about a Cape Town man who was falsely accused of domestic violence by a female stalker who - amazingly - was assisted by the same guy's lawyer ex-girlfriend in doing the dirt on him. The full sordid account is in the latest issue of Noseweek.

Trivial pursuit
Issue #143, 1st September 2011

When mild-mannered Bishops old boy Colin Chaplin told his friends that the surprise domestic-violence order the police had served on him at work was obtained by a woman he’d threatened to unfriend on Facebook, many found it hard to believe – there had to be a more serious reason.

Even more bewildering is that the purported victim – a woman with whom he’d “shared a kiss or two” in the space of a week, years ago – said she’d been advised to seek the order by his ex-girlfriend, well-known Cape Town attorney Lauren Fine.

I did know Danielle and what she did makes me sick. All she did after the Noseweek story was change her name and dye her hair skanky blonde. How obvious do you want to make it that you are guilty to the whole world.
When she first contacted Fine she told her that Chaplin had been dating both of them when he met Fine. Childish fucking lie. It was easy for Chaplin to prove she was lying so she had to make sure they never spoke to each other. Thats why she insisted on being friends with Fine. She tried to get the restraining order against him to make him look like some bad man so that Fine would not believe what he said. She put Fines name in the court papers to make it look like Fine was telling him to fuck off and that she did not want to speak to him. After the court stuff she knew Chaplin would want to talk to Fine so she immediately started calling Fine again on the phone.This was Danielle being a bitch. She knew how desperate he was to talk to Fine but she wouldnt let it happen. It comes up time and time again that whenever Fine was shown that Danielle was lying she just started calling Fine to keep her confused. The facebook hacking also never happened. I dont think anyone believes your facebook account could be taken from you for like two months and then you just sommer get it back one day and start using it again. Danielle only opened the case with the police to keep Fine happy. Danielle knew from the restraining order thing that you could lie to the police aand they wouldnt do anything about it ever and even if they did she would just tell them it was Fines idea. When the noseweek article came out Danielle knew she was fucked. I think at the time she was more scared of Fine than Chaplin. I think Fine had the connections to make her life difficult. Danielle did what she always did she just started calling Fine again on the telephone. I really dont know why Fine took took the phone calls from Danielle. At the same time the letters started coming.The letters were from Danielles family becasue they were angry for Fine telling her to get the restraining order and then blaming the whole thing on Danielle in the noseweek story. The letters worked brilliantly becasue Fine got the police to go for Chaplin and it let Danielle walk away. By phoning Fine Danielle knew how to make the letters stop when the police took his computer and make them start again when they gave it back to him.
