I told you so.
NO MATTER WHO GETS HURT. Yesterday, Instapunk referenced a column by Professor Mike S. Adams of UNC, Wilmington, and asked whether we should care about the feminist silliness he was describing. Today he answers the question for all of us with an account of recent doings at the University of New Hampshire (The "Live Free or Die" state, don't you know.) Here's a sample:
The Feminist Action League (FAL) organized the on-campus event, which featured poetry readings, skits, monologues and an open microphone....
...One FAL member’s monologue follows: “Hello, my name is Mary Man-Hating-Is-Fun. I am 23 years old, and I am what a feminist looks like. Ever since I learned to embrace my feminist nature, I found great joy in threatening men's lives, flicking off frat brothers and plotting the patriarchy’s death. I hate men because they are men, because I see them for what they are: misogynistic, sexist, oppressive and absurdly pathetic beings who only serve to pollute and contaminate this world with war, abuse, oppression and rape.”
Other members of the FAL wore scissors
around their necks and sang a song about castration.
especially on the castration theme. And there's also this:
David Huffman, a writer for the UNH
conservative paper “Common Sense” was outraged by the, shall we say,
mr-ogyny of the event. Huffman was asked to leave the public university
event during the open microphone session. Despite the fact that he
wasn’t singing songs about castration, FAL members said he was making
women feel uncomfortable....
...After hearing poems that talked about castrating men, read by women with scissors tied around their necks, Hoffman asked “How is this any different than hating African-Americans or Jews?” The answer is simple: It is no different in principle. But, of course, the FAL is not based upon principle. The organization is based upon blind hatred.
But the women weren’t the only lunatics
in the audience. Rob Wolff, of the Men Against Patriarchy, said the
following: “I hope men are confronted. That's what it's going to take.
Events like this are the beginning of a women's revolution.”
I'm sure some of you are shocked. But this has been coming for a
long time now. More than five years ago, Shuteye Town 1999 foresaw what Dr.
Adams is now writing about. Here's a link
(Depending on where you work, it may not be safe for work).
It really is time for men to stop being so damn silent about the
excesses and pretensions of feminism. It's also time for men to quit
repeating the unexamined propaganda they've swallowed about their own
sex -- that men are simpler, cruder, crueler, less articulate, and
dumber than women. IT AIN'T SO. And the very worst way of relearning
this elemental truth is to put women in charge, which is the real agenda driving radical
