Skip to comments.Men -- the new second class citizens
Posted on 09/02/2013 8:30:28 PM PDT by Objective Scrutator
[...] The truth is, men have become second-class citizens.
The most obvious proof is male bashing in the media. It is rampant and irrefutable. From sit-coms and commercials that portray dad as an idiot to biased news reports about the state of American men, males are pounced on left and right. And thats just the beginning.
The war on men actually begins in grade school, where boys are at a distinct disadvantage...

this is inaccurate
the media does not bash all men... just white men.
especially white, Christian, heterosexual, entrepreneurial men
Not as long as I’m alive. I have a daughter who loves men too. May G-d Bless Men as long as I’m alive and a 100 years after!
The only reason we’re bashed is because we’re the only people left in this society that aren’t such p*ssies that we threaten to sue or need an apology for every imagined offense, no matter how trivial or idiotic.
Try getting your white son into a good school when he has great grades and lacks in sports! Lesbian Theatre Freshman year with a Canadian Munchqueen! Auuggh!
We are payin’ for that crap?
Which is why I sense a show such as “Duck Dynasty” is a smash hit.
And we pay most of the taxes.
I don’t buy this line of BS...If a male is such a pansy ass that he would spent even a second worrying about this crap and joining in the long list of victims we have in America today then he better go home to mama..
“The most obvious proof is male bashing in the media.”
The most obvious proof is WHITE male bashing.
I guess men should just shrug off all the affirmative action and go work at McDonalds while they struggle to pay thier child support for the wives that divorced them?
Enjoy your chains slave.
I hear carrying them around builds up your biceps so you can flex them in everyones face and show what a real man you are.
You've got it wrong, western men are bashed because they are too P*ssy to fight back.
No biggie though, in a few generations they will be replaced by men who have the balls to assume their proper role in society.
Unfortunately they will be Muslim, but nothing is perfect is it?
Your rebuttal is profound. I bet those 'roids really helped build your brains as much as your biceps?
Imagine this scenario: You are the owner and manager of a small business, overseeing 500 workers. Let’s say that 10 of these workers are women (despite the state of affirmative action, this scenario can crop up, especially in fields such as engineering). One woman does an incompetent job, so you fire her. The woman sues you for sexual discrimination, alleging that you are sexist for not firing a proportionate number of men (49), even though all of the men were competent.
Whether or not she wins her case, you WILL be forced to spend money on court costs, and will be forced to divert your time away from your business to deal with this devil, all because “sexual discrimination” is considered a valid reason to sue someone (other idiotic reasons include “racial discrimination”, “sexual harassment”, and “equal work for equal pay” [one should be payed what is agreed upon in the contract]). The woman will probably also try to kill you, just because feminism gives her a convenient smokescreen to do so.
In this case, the “victims” are being conspired against. Don’t draw a false equivalency between conspiracy victims and the freeloaders of society. Who is really freeloading: a business owner and contributor to GDP, or a harpy demanding you pay her for doing nothing because of the Commie concept of maternity leave?
Did you read the article? Are you oblivious to the rampant discrimination of males in today’s society?
That's because you're too old to have grown up under an anti-male (especially conservative male) educational system.
Public education is nothing like you remember I'm sure. Any boy acting like a boy is told to see a doctor so he can be drugged into compliance. A boy chews a pop tart into a gun and get's suspended from school. Another boy writes a story for English class that includes images of war and it's suggested that he's mentally ill.
And then there are the studies that confirm that while boys are receiving better scores on tests, their teachers are grading them lower than the girls.
That kind of bias against boys really makes a difference, and it's been going on since the 70's.
“Are you oblivious to the rampant discrimination of males in todays society”
Yeah I am...
and I’m oblivious to the pleas of those wimps trying to get me to buy into the Victimization Industry that is so powerful in the country today...
...and that is why we are men...not wimps and narcissists like we see all over the place...
I grew up when men did not buy into being victims. Maybe you young guys are just wimps :)
"Men" who blow up innocent people? "Men" who use their own women and children as human shields? "Men" who're so intimidated by female sexuality and so insecure in their own that they insist on covering every part of a woman's body except her eyes?
Get a clue.
Muslim ... "men."
Thanks for being my amusement for the day.
This is correct, and a point that I wish she had made in the article. The NAACP and NOW are natural bed-buddies, as both seek to tear down the successful and promote the worthless. The successful in society are almost always white men; for example, chess (which hasn’t really been tainted by feminism yet, and success is entirely merit-based) has one “Super-GM” female (Judit Polgar) in its entire history, a few non-white super-GMs (Capablanca, Anand, Wang Hao, some others), and a whole slew of Soviets. Why is this the case? The Soviets had the Botvinnik chess school, and a cultural love of the game! Does this matter today? No!
Should we start banning male Slavs from chess schools? If you are a feminist or a liberal, you would say yes...
I would add "old" to the mix, thus my tagline.....
Ironically, we just finished watching a comedy show on Netflix by a guy named Bill Burr. I recommend it with this caveat: he has a filthy mouth and I shouldn’t have laughed half as much as I did... but I did. The amazing thing is, along the way he made three or four profound and unassailable points on exactly the topic at hand: male bashing. Never heard of the guy before tonight but he gave us a good hour of entertainment with a point. It’s called Bill Burr / You People Are All The Same if you want to check it out. And you should, because laughter is good medicine.
I'm not exactly young now, but I did grow up in the 70's and 80's.
I remember being about eight and constantly humiliated in front of the class by a radical black feminist English teacher. Maybe I'm just a wimp, but that stuck with me. Now every time I sit to write anything I feel the same terror I felt then.
Getting through college was a huge challenge whenever writing a paper was involved. Women are earning more degrees than men, especially in education, journalism, and to some extent the law. Is that an accident?
She knew what she was doing. I'm sure many leftists grin when they see the naive "just toughen up" attitude of some conservatives. Obtaining power is not so simple.
Montanajoe is engaged in standard intrasex competition as a result of biological programing to tear other men down in order to win approval from women.
Humans, like other mammals are a harem forming species where the top men get multiple women and a huge proportion of the rest of the male population get nothing.
The end result of feminism will be that nearly all men will be denied any rights, except for the men at the top who have all the women and power. Then the men at the top will snear down at the rest of men as being unworthy.
Women will only vote for what selfishly benefits them. That half of the voting population plus the men who want to appease them will be the destruction of democracy.
I don't think that's true. There are all kinds of women, and long before the 19th amendment some preferred to be in the working world instead of on the home front. Not necessarily lesbians.
Having said that, I absolutely know that today's males are downtrodden by women who believe they HAVE TO do well at work and HAVE TO leave child care to day care, the state, or some inferior beings. And of course, they HAVE TO have abortions so they can be more effective at their jobs, don't want to be "dragged down" by raising kids.
This is the culture we live in, and it's devastating society. So many neglected kids, even feral kids of all races who have never been mothered or nurtured, who are made to feel "less than," and ...well, on and on it goes in a very bad direction, especially for males.
A large part of this is the fault of economic forces that require two parents working to have the "lifestyle" advertisers tell us we must have. Twenty minutes a day watching any media and you get this message loud and clear.
A lot of factors in this devastating equation.
Women are just now waking up to the fact that their are few men out there. Even my 19 and 20 year old daughters complain about it. There is an abundance of 30 year old boys and a deficit of 20 year old men. Boys are fun for awhile but women really desire men.
Your manhood is a crime in today’s society because chivalry is true charity and competition the governmnt does not want to see. In fact a person welcoming the blessing of chivalry is also under attack, ie. women and children of such men are considered abused and thus either shunned or forcibly removed. It’s not an issue of “victim”, it is an issue about whether we are man enough to organize a protection of what is left around.
It’s also inaccurate in that Title IX hasn’t been interpreted to require women to play the same sports as men.
Do you have a source on any such studies?
“Women are just now waking up to the fact that their are few men out there.”
No, they ARE the “men”; they get to go to work every day, forego children or watch strangers raise them, etc...everything guys did for centuries.
“Boys are fun for awhile but women really desire men.”
The men are too smart to bite; when T-shirts are sold with “Why get married? Find a nasty b!tch an buy her a house.”, it’s all over. Word got out; the sons of the divorced, lifetime-alimony paying dads are now grown, and they’re opting out of growing up.
UMC women value education and marry late.
MC/WC women do not marry, sleep around, drink heavily, and say hello with fellatio.
He has been looking for an active well-kempt young MC/WC female who may be marrying quality. They are rare. My kids are tending to marry early. Girls have been taught to sleep around and since they are bored, drama prevails. He calls what happens on weekends group drunken pig piles.
If you are correct western civilization is over. Of course, that is why many men get brides and girlfriends from other parts of the world. I work overseas and see it all the time.
UMC MC WC? Sorry, I do not understand.
Sorry. Upper middle class, Middle class, Lower middle class, working class. There is a distinct difference in marital patterns these days.
Now I got it. Not much marraige material out there for anyone. If you read some of the other posts, some seem pretty bitter about it.
White males get bashed- a lot. I see them everywhere being very passive. Much of the respect has eroded, because they refuse to stand up for themselves. This year, at the election spots, I saw numerous women leading their men around and telling them who they were going to vote for.
Feminism has won.
Glad to know I’m not alone, FRiend.
To libs we are all Homer Simpson. They have been doing this for years.
The article is written by a woman, not a man.
“If you are correct western civilization is over.”
Do you see any trace of Western Civilization in the public arena today (anywhere)?
“Of course, that is why many men get brides and girlfriends from other parts of the world.”
My wife is an imported “replacement American”; I’m sure many Americans would consider us “counter-cultural” (we’re old-school Christians) and Democrats would label us “counter-revolutionaries”...
“This year, at the election spots, I saw numerous women leading their men around and telling them who they were going to vote for. Feminism has won.”
No, it is just a temporary reprieve. The next generation (most of which is NOT bred by these women) are darker, more primitive people who have never heard of “feminism”. They are traditional people who have no use for American women, and their offspring are already filling our maternity wards, playgrounds, and schools.
“You’ve got it wrong, western men are bashed because they are too P*ssy to fight back.”
I thought they were fighting back by hooking up with more traditional foreign women; that is certainly the case in my area (northern NJ). American guys seem to either marry imported women or they don’t marry at all. Outside of simply walking away from “feminists” I’m not sure how else they should be “fighting”.
“No biggie though, in a few generations they will be replaced by men who have the balls to assume their proper role in society. “
Certainly not from the last three generations of kids; GenX, GenY, GenWhyMe. They have to have a pat on the head just for taking a piss and not pissing on their hands.
