Far be it for me to deny myself the pleasure of an intellectual debate, so here we go:

A List Of Issues That Men Suffer In The USA Alone

Men suffer more casualties in war

currently, women are not even required by law to register for selective service, but even mentally challenged and physically disabled men are, in addition to all the healthy ones)


In contrast, women get every veteran’s benefit a man does, yet comprise less than 3% of combat deaths or casualties and a woman makes the cover of Time magazine (person of the year/2003 standing in front of two men.

Men have it rough in the workplace

  • Men are 93% of industrial deaths and accident (NIOSH)

  • Even though murder is the leading workplace cause of death for women, a statistic often used by gender feminists, that number is only a percentage of the 6% of workplace deaths that women comprise.  In other words, a fraction of a small fraction.


Men die more often from unnatural causes than women


Men are the overwhelming majority of rape victims

Other facts regarding men and rape:

Men get screwed over in divorce and custody courts

  • A woman is the party filing for divorce in about 66% of divorce cases.

    “How often was it that many more of women wanted the divorce more than the men?
    2/3. The same as the amount responsible for divorce filings. And yet another study of divorced couples found that the majority of divorced wives and husbands both agreed it was the wife who wanted out.”
  • Women receive custody in about 84% of child custody cases.

    In the spring of 2002, an estimated 13.4 million parents had custody of 21.5 million children under 21 years of age whose other parent lived somewhere else. About 5 of every 6 custodial parents were mothers (84.4 percent) and 1in 6 were fathers (15.6 percent), proportions statistically unchanged since 1994

According to Los Angeles divorce consultant Jayne Major:

“Divorced men are often devastated by the loss of their children. It’s a little known fact that in the United States men initiate only a small number of the divorces involving children. Most of the men I deal with never saw their divorces coming, and they are often treated very unfairly by the family courts.’”

  • Paternity fraud is rampant in the U.S.

    30% of those named as fathers who test for paternity find they are not the biological father.
  • Not only is all this imbalance around marriage and children unfair to men, we must also consider that the damaged inflicted on fatherless children is staggering:

        63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (US Dept. Of Health/Census) – 5 times the average.

        90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes – 32 times the average.

        85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average. (Center for Disease Control)

        80% of rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes –14 times the average. (Justice & Behavior, Vol 14, p. 403-26)

        71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average. (National Principals Association Report)

        75% of all adolescent patients in chemical abuse centers come from fatherless homes – 10 times the average. (Rainbows for All God’s Children)

        70% of youths in state-operated institutions come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average. (U.S. Dept. of Justice, Sept. 1988)

        85% of all youths in prison come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average. (Fulton Co. Georgia, Texas Dept. of Correction)

Men are often screwed over in the Justice System as well.

  • There is blatant anti-male discrimination in the criminal justice system and the sentencing disparity between men and women exceeds that between whites and any other minority.
  • Avg sentences for crime by gender:

    Female – 18.51 months
    Male – 51.52 months
  • “Judge bashes Probation Department for gender bias in favor of leniency for girls”
  • The 2006 United States’ rate of incarceration of 751 inmates per 100,000 population is the highest reported rate in the world, well ahead of the Russian rate of 628 per 100,000.

    93% of the prison population is male with over 60% having no High School education.   America has now passed Russia as the country that has the largest percentage of its population incarcerated, yet we still claim to be the freest country on earth.

    The number of persons on probation and parole has been growing dramatically along with institutional populations. There are now 7.2 million Americans incarcerated or on probation or parole, an increase of more than 290 percent since 1980.
  • The problem of sentencing disparities is compounded by an epidemic of false accusations:

    205 (and growing) wrongly convicted people have been exonerated by DNA evidence since the beginning of the Innocence Project.

    204 of the wrongly convicted were men.

    Most of them were falsely imprisoned for rape.
  • As we saw in the Duke Lacrosse rape case  fiasco, false accusers are rarely prosecuted and when they are it is only as a misdemeanor (at most), while rape itself is vigorously prosecuted as a felony. The Duke false accuser, Crystal Gayle Mangum went on to commit assault, arson and finally murder before authorities made a good faith intervention.

    One attorney speaking at premiere for the movie, After Innocence, estimates that there are between 20,000 and 100,000 wrongly convicted still in prison.

    Valid research puts the estimated false rape reporting rate at 41%

Capital Punishments Target Men Almost Exclusively

  • Since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976, there have been over 1,200 executions in the United States. Eleven of them, or less than 1%, were women. This stands in stark contrast considering women commit, by DOJ estimates, 10% of all murders, are involved in 35% of all domestic homicides (are involved often means they get other people to kill for them) and nearly 30% of murders where the victim was another family member.

Other:

  • We hear a lot about the historical oppression of women’s voting rights, but few if any women who were born in the 20th century were every without the right to vote in their lifetime, upon reaching legal voting age.  On the other hand, around 2400 hundred California men (42% of CA men killed in Vietnam) gave their life for their country without being allowed by their country to vote.  The exact number is 2,381.  Four of the twelve Iwo Jimo flag raisers died for their country without their country ever allowing them the right to vote.
  • “The youngest Vietnam KIA is believed to be Dan Bullock USMC, at 15 years old.
    At least 5 men killed in Vietnam were 16 years old.
    At least 12 men killed in Vietnam were 17 years old.
    There are 120 persons who listed foreign countries as their home of record.
    At least 25,000 of those killed were 20 years old or younger.
    The oldest man killed was 62 years old.”

    If you do a full count on all the men in the 20th century who died for their country without being allowed to vote the numbers will be staggering.

    In America there are over 270 women’s commissions, but only one for men in New Hampshire.

    There are over 700 Women’s Studies programs on colleges and universities throughout the United States teaching thousands or tens of thousands of classes from the gender feminist perspective, but not one program or class, teaching men’s studies from the masculist perspective.

    Men are fully half of the victims  of domestic violence (26% of intimate partner homicides), yet are denied service at most tax payer funded domestic violence shelters.

    The CDC reports that in cases of non-reciprocal intimate partner violence (one directional) that women are more than twice as likely to be the aggressor. The report cites that women comprise 70% of perpetrators, men 29%.

    In the largest collection of studies on intimate partner violence known, Martin Fiebert of the California State University, Longbeach offers the following:

    SUMMARY:  This bibliography examines 286 scholarly investigations: 221 empirical studies and 65 reviews and/or analyses, which demonstrate that women are as physically aggressive, or more aggressive, than men in their relationships with their spouses or male partners.  The aggregate sample size in the reviewed studies exceeds 371,600. 
  • In another study the CDC lists male victims of domestic violence at more than 34%, but men injured in Iraq (and all other men) are by law in California excluded from domestic violence shelter services. Only one shelter in Lancaster, CA accepts men and it has been extensively harassed for doing so.

    That harassment is a systemic problem with origins that emanate from academe. Dr. Murray Straus, an internationally recognized expert on intimate partner violence published the following paper outlining the various ways that feminist ideologues suppress data and research on IPV that demonstrates gender symmetry in its incidence.
  • Men are subject to extreme discrimination in healthcare.

    Men today die on average 6 years sooner than women.  In 1920 the variance was one year.  The death rates for prostate and breast cancer are similar, but because men die of other things more frequently-accidents ,war, heart disease etc., there are fewer men left to die of prostate cancer.  This is akin to saying people from a nation like Zimbabwe are immune to Alzheimer’s- but in fact they die of other things before they can get old enough to contract Alzheimer’s.

    To date, there are numerous federal offices on women’s health, and not a single one for men. Also, the lion’s share of gender specific medical research is done on behalf of women.

    Men and boys are suffering decline in the educational system. Department of Education graph: 

    Boys are facing a significantly harder time in early education than girls. Yet girls, from primary education through college still benefit from many more special programs designed to help them gain “equality” with males.

Some info on the wage gap

  • The wage gap myth based on the “comparable worth” paradigm:
    • The wage gap myth based on the “comparable worth” paradigm:
  • While men make more money than women on average, women control and spend vastly more money than men.
  • Women as an economically disadvantaged group is a myth that negatively affects men.

    Not too long ago, legendary adman David Ogilvy chided his peers for talking down to women. He berated those who ignored women or discounted them, misconstruing men’s higher paychecks to mean greater spending clout. And he was right. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, women–who comprise just over 51 percent of the U.S. population, making them the largest consumer segment in the country–control six trillion dollars in buying power annually. Statistics show that:

    Women make 88 percent of all U.S. retail purchases. Some experts even predict that, by 2020, women will control most of the money in America.

    Women control 88 percent of all purchases.

    Women handle 75 percent of family finances. 43 percent of those with assets over $500,000 are women.

    Women influence two out of every three of the 3 trillion dollars spent in the U.S. each year!

    From the Sisters4Sisters Yellow Pages:

        Women are starting businesses at twice the rate of men.

        One out of every 11 American women owns her own business.

        Currently there are over 10.6 million women-owned businesses employing 19.1 million people and generating $2.5 trillion in sales.

        Women make or influence over 85% of all purchasing decisions.

        In 2010, women have the majority of wealth in America.

    Men pay the majority of social security taxes and are outlived by six years by women, but the government makes no fair adjustment to how those funds are distributed.

    In summary, men experience systematic discrimination in parenting, domestic violence policies, education, criminal sentencing, paternity, forced labor, military conscription, public health policies, genital integrity, false accusations, reproductive rights, portrayal by the media and in the coverage of their issues by the news media.

    Misandry is often expressed through racism.

    From Scottsboro An American Tragedy.

    “The protection of white womanhood, it might be the pivot around all Southern culture. Of the 5,000 people who were lynched from 1880 to 1940, most were black men accused of raping or sexually assaulting white women.” – Robin Kelly, Historian

    From American Man

    “In 1931, two white women stepped from a boxcar in Paint Rock, Alabama to make a shocking accusation: they had been raped by nine black teenagers on the train.” … ”- a poor white woman whose lie lends her respectability…”

    The case that sparked the civil rights movement

    As we have seen with the “war on drugs,” legislation like VAWA, primary aggressor laws, mandatory arrest laws and the like have a disproportionately negative effect on minorities and other low income populations.

  • Young men will be the biggest losers in the transition to Obamacare. Reports estimate that males as a whole will see:

        11% increase in insurance premiums compared to 9% drop in females

        Men under 40 will face 18% - 31% insurance hikes compared to females under 40 13% to 19% decrease

        Young men ages 25-36 will could face insurance premiums of 50% or more compared to young females 25-29 who will see 4% increase

Feminists don’t give a shit about anything I’ve read.

If men aren’t Feminists, they’re scum. Hell, if men ARE Feminists, often time they’re told by RadFems to fuck off anyway. If women aren’t Feminists, they “don’t love themselves” or suffer from “internalized misogyny.” Feminism only gives a shit about advancing their dogma, and other Feminists. I’ve yet to see any way, shape, or form they’ve demonstrated otherwise.

Special Thanks to Alicia for retaining information here. I can expand with something entirely original if you like, to elaborate on why I despise the current incarnation of Feminism and several of it’s backwards ideals.

Research Shows SJWs Defeat Their Own Movements

idetesteverything:

Read it and weep, snowflakes.

Oh my god, this is perfect.

For the dearies who didn’t want to, or didn’t have time to research, here’s a brief summary:

—-Negative Stereotypes—-

From a Q&A with one of the researchers, we learnt that activists (like feminists) “were perceived as militant, aggressive, forceful, argumentative and abrasive.”

By aggressively promoting change and advocating unconventional practices, activists become associated with hostile militancy and unconventionality or eccentricity.

In one study, 17 male and 45 female undergraduate students were randomly assigned to read a profile about a student who was a “typical” feminist (described as conforming to the stereotypes), an “atypical” feminist (described as not conforming to the stereotypes) or someone whose commitment to feminism was not described. All participants then rated the extent to which the stereotypical traits belonged to character they read about, as well as if they were interested in being associated with the character.

The most common traits for “typical feminists” included “man-hating”, “eccentric”, “militant” and “unhygienic”.

—-Aversion to Association—-

Another study, featuring 17 male and 45 female undergraduates, confirmed the pervasiveness of those stereotypes. It further found participants were less interested in befriending activists who participated in stereotypical behavior (such as staging protest rallies), but could easily envision hanging out with those who use “nonabrasive and mainstream methods” such as raising money or organizing social events.

“We found that participants were less motivated to adopt pro-gender equality behaviours when the article was ostensibly delivered by the ‘typical’ feminist rather than by one of the other message sources,” says Bashir.

The results of three additional studies suggested this aversion to perceived stereotypical behavior impacts people’s behavior. They don’t want other people to view them in the same negative view and consequently be attributed with commonly perceived negative stereotypes.

Due to these negative stereotypes, people are reluctant to adopt the behaviours that these movements (like feminism) promote.

“Furthermore, this tendency to associate activists with negative stereotypes and perceive them as people with whom it would be unpleasant to affiliate reduces individuals’ motivation to adopt the pro-change behaviors that activists advocate.”

In contrast, the studies also showed that people are more receptive of the message when it comes from an individual who does not conform to these negative stereotypes.

What does this mean? Are all activists this way?

“It’s important to keep in mind that this research is focused on how activists are perceived by others, rather than how they actually are,” Bashir says. “The militant and eccentric characteristics do not necessarily describe the actual personality traits possessed by activists.”

In conclusion, negative stereotypes are limiting the influence of what are supposed to be progressive and benign social movements.

So how do we deal with the problem of negative stereotypes?

The researchers suggest that the general public “may be more receptive to advocates who defy stereotypes by coming across as pleasant and approachable.”

But there is some value to activists in considering that people do perceive them negatively and maybe they do need to tweak their strategy a bit to take into consideration the way they’re coming across to people.

—-Additional Comments—-

This is a feminist’s response to the research, in which she actively encourages the reader to completely disregard the stereotypes, ignoring the harm the stereotypes are inflicting to their own cause, and the advice given by the researchers (to be more considerate). Feminists should simply ‘fight back’ instead (thereby inadvertently reinforcing those negative stereotypes). Her reasoning being that it’s the privileged people who are censoring activists and smearing the name of feminism.

The solution to that, Mr. Jacobs, isn’t to turn around and waggle fingers at the feminists for being insufficiently smiley (and in doing so to reinforce the false assumption that feminists are… what was the word? “Overwhelmingly negative”?). The solution is to instead push back against the people trying to use their privilege to control the conversation; to push back against the many, many people who use their political, media, and social power to smear the name of feminism in order to intimidate people from claiming that term for themselves.

Not only is she promoting actions that would consequently reinforce the stereotypes she’s offended about, but she is blatantly refusing to acknowledge the militant feminists that exist in great numbers in her movement, and are considerably the most vocal group.

So I implore you, dear keyboard warrior feminists, to realize that saying this

and doing this

is not helping your cause at all.

All you’re doing is proving the negative stereotypes to be true.

Don’t blame The Patriarchy™ if ever your movement ends up in flames incited by your own reckless actions.

I had no idea when I started following you that you hate SJWs and Special snowflakes too. Thank you for this. It's just another reason to keep following.

When people pollute equal rights movements with their cancerous neuroses, it makes people who are genuinely curious about social issues discouraged from learning about them for fear of being stigmatized. Ironically, social justice no longer serves the purpose it was intended for, as it creates a hostile discussion environment where people are treated and judged by the circumstances of their birth, and not their actions.

As for special snowflakes, I can kind of understand why they choose to behave the way they do. It’s okay not to be happy with who you are. I sure as hell ain’t. I’ve got an artist’s mind, but I have a body best suited for sports. People often expect a giant like myself to be boisterous and sociable, but I’m awkward and lost in my thoughts all the time. This frightens them. Personally, I’d like to be under 7 feet tall and a lot slimmer.

That being said, though, there’s a such thing as taking it too far. I often fantasize about being a shapeshifting god-like creature capable of bending reality to my whims, but I acknowledge it as exactly that, a fantasy. You don’t see me inventing pronouns and going off on tirades about how shitty normal people are. These people desperately need a reality check. It’ll hurt like hell, but it will be worth it in the end, and they’ll be thankful that it happened.
