In the News…

March 16, 2008


It must be the end of the week. This means I must share the stories I’ve come across over the last week that I found interesting in some way.

(Note: Concerning some emails I’ve received: Do not take all my comments literally. I impose a great amount of sarcasm in these news articles. Sometimes I am serious, and sometimes I am not. But I will not “tag” each piece so others can figure out which is which. That wouldn’t be much fun.)

Gender Issues 

Robbing the Hearts of Men

Here is an article written by a feminist that surprised me – until I had time to think about it. Written by a woman calling herself “PortlyDyke” she engages her readers in compassion for men and what issues they face on a daily bases concerning the emotional limitations society…ooops, misogyny allows them to express. This is where me and her diverge.

She expresses quite well that how to be a “real” man in society means to “shut up” and deal with it. She correctly explains the paradox men are in; express yourself and watch ridicule and shame follow, and yet at the same time, you are told your problems arise from you not expressing your feelings.

But as usual, feminist refuse to accept any blame or responsibility for how they helped create the very environment in which this happens. She blames it all on men and masculinity. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

The feminist movement has been well known to be filled with hatred and contempt for men. It has created an environment where women’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being has been advocated to have more value and a greater priority than men and boys. Feminism has done a great job of convincing society that any hardships men face are not nearly as difficult has the ones women face. And any sexism, discrimination, or unfair sacrifices men face, are justified/payback for the years oppressing women. In their book, “two wrongs make a right”. And to think, this vicious mentality comes the very people who believe THEY are better suited to teach our society’s children the concepts of fairness and equality.
For all their whining and crying about the patriarchy perceiving anything feminine as being “wrong”, and how destructive and dangerous this is, it is always with great humor that I find them so ignorant of their own belief that masculinity is inferior to femininity, and only they, and their idealized vision of a ‘real” man, created with the infusion of copious amounts of femininity, can produce superior men.
Now, who do you think is more dangerous? 

In spite of this, it was nice to see some acknowledgement of men and their feelings from a feminist. However, feminism is built on the ideology that any compassion shown for men automatically makes one less of a feminist, and that in turn will risk virulent attacks from the “sisterhood”. My belief that feminism shuns compassion for men is proven by the second column PortlyDyke. This piece covers the response and emails received from what she assumes were other feminist attacking her for showing compassion for men and their issues, and insinuating that feminism may be partly responsible. In this column (scroll down to “I’ll Do It“), I got the feeling she is apologizing for her column about men, and trying to re-establish her standing and credibility within the feminist sisterhood.
You be the judge.
(Note: In the second column she write about living in a “manless” community where no men were allowed in. Take notice how their sexism is justified, but men’s sexism is dangerous. She validates many of my beliefs.)

‘I was terrified I would never bond with my baby’

Another column written by a woman, and another one that attacks men in various spots (I’ve grown used to the fact that many female writers cannot write about gender related issues without taking cheap shots at men. That’s one of the reasons I do what I do. It’s done in the name of “equality”. As I wrote above, feminist have instilled the belief that two wrongs make a right. So in defense of MY cheapshots towards women, I justify it by saying “I’m getting in touch with my feminine side!”).

What I like about this one is that this female writer/mother drops the “woman are natural martyrs” ideology, and comes clean with her “unnatural” feelings after the birth of her first child. I am moved by her honesty. More interesting, is how she points out the many times she felt ignored and neglected by many females in the healthcare system. I can actually relate to her story. When my twin boys were born, my wife and I experienced many female MD’s and RN’s that displayed the “I could care less” attitude towards my wife, our boys, and me. The standard belief is that females are much more compassionate than males, particularly in healthcare. I work in healthcare, and I can assure you this is the greatest myth out there.

Anyway, read her story and formulate your own thoughts.

Human Remains Found in Dumpster of Abortion Clinic

I included this story because it goes quite well the other stories today. It concerns the contents found in a dumpster behind an abortion clinic. The story states, “body parts of aborted babies, bio-hazardous materials and patients’ medical records were found earlier this month.”

I’ve written before how I’m surprised the matriarchy of the women’s rights movement is obsessed with how the male patriarchy has harmed women in various ways, but they sleep well at night, ignorant in the ways their advocacy has hurt others.

This story reiterates the reality of carelessness and indolence in female dominated healthcare fields that I mentioned above. For me, it also raises awareness as to why we don’t question the validity of so many women’s rights organizations that claim to be the saviors of our children. Killing over three thousand unborn children a day in the matriarchy-based abortion profession and claiming to be emotional about the welfare of children is the most absurd hypocrisy I know of.

I’ve included a link to the video showing what was found in the dumpster. I am not a zealous anti-abortion advocate. I just believe since women have consistently over the years made every attempt to display various forms of male violence perpetrated on females in various avenues of media, why can’t we show the realities of everyday female violence perpetrated upon the innocent in the name of equality?
Here is the video.   (caution: the ending gets graphic)

From “Fighting the myth Men are Monsters, Women are Martyrs’ Files”:

Boys, 4, cuffed for refusing nap: Parents of two four-year-old boys in New York are suing officials after their sons were allegedly handcuffed for refusing to take a nap. Lawyer Scott Agulnick says a substitute teacher took Jaden Diaz and Christopher Brito to an empty classroom. Then, a school safety officer allegedly entered the room, cuffed the boys’ wrists – and told them they would never see their parents again.

Masculinity’s oppression of women starts early doesn’t it? Good thing they were able to control it quickly. 

Baker Sheriff: Woman Borrows Gun From Neighbor, Kills HusbandA woman is charged with the shooting death of her husband before dawn Monday in their home south of Macclenny, according to the Baker County Sheriff’s Office. Investigators said Meloney Jackson borrowed a gun from a neighbor, entered the house in the 7000 block of John Rowe Street and shot Kevin Jackson. Bill Krall, owner of Hole In The Wall Antiques Guns and Ammo, said Jackson came into his store last Thursday to buy a gun. “She was telling me how her husband had threatened her and they were going to court on Tuesday, and she needed a gun right now,” Krall said.

Oh, by the way, divorcing your wife is now a symptom of battered woman syndrome. It’s not her fault, he deserved it.

Burned alive for “not washing feet: A Chinese bride burned her new husband to death after he got into bed after a drunken argument without washing his feet, state media reported on Wednesday.

This is not the whole story. He also left the toilet seat up, left his socks on the floor, and didn’t put his dishes in the sink. These behaviors are also consistent with abuses that lead to battered women syndrome. Another man who deserved it.

Wife of Soldier Serving in Iraq Charged With Starving Their Infant Daughter to Death: The wife of a soldier deployed in Iraq is charged with killing their 11-month-old daughter after the infant was found starved to death in their littered home on the Fort Leonard Wood Army post, authorities said. An autopsy found that Alexis most likely died from dehydration, starvation and malnutrition the day before she was found.

Killing a child in the womb or outside the womb – what’s the difference. My feminine side tells me the most important thing to ask is, “Is SHE OK?”

Mother Barred From Seeing 12-Year-Old Son Charged With Murder After Telling Him to Commit Suicide: The mother of a 12-year-old boy charged with killing a Broward County toddler was ordered to stay away from her son Thursday. Broward County Circuit Judge Charlie Kaplan issued the order after employees at the juvenile detention center overheard Guerla Joseph encourage the boy to kill himself. The mother was also heard telling the boy that his situation was comparable to the persecution of Jesus.

She also wants to be called Mother Mary-Kevorkian in the future.

Tests Show Children Ingested Crack: A woman was charged with four counts of first-degree endangering the welfare of a child Thursday after admitting she gave children in her care crack cocaine, police said. Tasha Cole, 17, took her child to the emergency room on Wednesday when the 2-year-old starting having seizures. During routine tests at the hospital, crack cocaine was found in the child’s system, according to court documents.

It’s not her fault. The government took away all those over-the-counter children’s medicines. She was left with no choice. Damn this patriarchal society!

Woman Apologizes For Reporter Attack: One of the women charged with attacking an Upstate television reporter earlier this week said she is sorry for what happened and did not use racial slurs against the news crew. Billie Joe Taylor told WSPA-TV that her family was under a great deal of stress dealing with the killing of a relative Tuesday, a few hours before the attack on reporter Charmayne Brown happened. Taylor said she hopes Brown and the community can accept her apology. The reporter and other witnesses of the attack said the four people, all white, yelled racial slurs and profanities before the attack and as they hit the reporter and cameraman, who are both black.

Apologize! Where is Gloria Steinem to defend this woman and educate those involved that white women have been oppressed on a much greater scale than black people?

Video: Woman Attacks Clerk Over Cup of CoffeeA woman distraught over having to pay for a cup of coffee she poured down the drain, refused to pay and began attacking the clerk.

Obviously he doesn’t know women make only 82 cents to every man’s dollar. She’ll pay when this damn discrimination ends.

Fairmont Woman Accused of Having Sex with Teen Boy: The Marion County Sheriff’s Department has arrested a Kingmont woman. Deputies charged Rachel Dawn Watkins with sexual assault in the third degree. The criminal complaint says Watkins admitted to having sex with a 14 year old boy two times last month. Watkins, 31 is out of jail after posting a $10,000 bond.

Gates woman sentenced to six months in jail for sex with teenage boys: A Gates mother of three who pleaded guilty to having sex with two teenage boys will do six months in jail. Today a judge sentenced Dena Greene and also gave her 10 years of intensive probation. She’s also required to register as a level-one sex offender. In December, Greene admitted to having sex with a 15-year-old boy last summer. Today in court Greene apologized.
She said, “I’m sorry for the entire incident. I’d like to apologize to the people and the families. I wish I could take it all back but I can’t.”

Video: Team Mom Charged for Having Sex With Basketball Players: Mother charged with having sex with one of the players on her son’s basketball team.

Hey, give her a break. She said she was just taking one for the team.

Florida Middle School Teacher Charged for Sex With 14-Year-Old Student: A Hillsborough County middle school teacher has been arrested and is charged with having sex with a 14-year-old student. According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Ragusa had a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old boy at Davidsen Middle School from October of 2006 to May of 2007.

You see it’s true guys. Helping your woman around the house DOES leave them more time to enjoy sex. It’s just not with you.

Louisiana Mother Says Revenge-Seeking Woman Tortured, Killed Her Baby: A mother whose 6-week-old baby died after being burned, beaten and drugged says she thinks the motive was revenge, a Bogalusa newspaper reports. The child’s mother, Lindsey Daigle, 19, told The Daily News she believes Amy Leighanne Thomas, 22, harmed the baby after finding out that Daigle had tattled on Thomas for taking something from a co-worker’s locker. Investigators have said the infant was beaten on the head, singed with a curling iron and drugged. Thomas was arrested Wednesday, and police said she confessed to the crime.

Woman Drove Into Crowd Outside Nightclub, Police Say: An 18-year-old woman is in custody, accused of purposely driving her car into a group of people outside a nightclub. Police said the woman drove into a crowd outside Club Onyx, at 3120 W. Villard Ave., around 1 a.m. Sunday. Two 24-year-old men were hit, but not seriously injured, when the woman drove into the crowd, backed up, and drove into the group a second time, according to reports.

We all know women are fragile, vulnerable people with prodigious hearts. They are not inherently violent. The real question is, what did these men do to this poor woman that forced her to act this way?
