Dear @jensthebosse . . .

Posted on | August 18, 2016 | 1 Comment

 

Mrs. Bosse, the first thing that occurred to me, after reading your Huffington Post column “Dear Men,” is that I would never be allowed to answer you on the same platform. Sites devoted to anti-male propaganda never permit dissenting or critical points of view. It’s all man-hating all the time at Huffington Post, although I know you did not consciously intend to promote an anti-male worldview, as you have a husband and two sons you love, and you begin with this disclaimer:

I do not write this to malign you; to pin the good for the actions of the bad. I have good male friends, an amazing male mentor, a supportive brother and a loving husband. I have been aided in times of need by men. I was rescued from an attempted abduction by a male. I am grateful for the many good men out there.
I am writing to you because we need your help.
You see, it’s impossible to turn on the news without seeing yet another story of a violent attack on a woman. A runner going out for an afternoon jog. A girl walking to a friend’s house. A female heading to her car in the parking lot. A woman asleep in her own bed.
We are not safe anywhere. . . .

Well, ma’am, as much as I would like to be of assistance, feminists constantly assert that male assistance is neither needed nor welcome. Feminism is a movement by women who hate men and never want to hear what any man has to say. Feminists especially hate “feminist men.” Just last week, for example, the website Everyday Feminism published a lengthy column entitled, “Beware These 10 Types of Feminist Men.”

Feminists believe that all men are bad and everything men do is wrong. What feminists want men to do is (a) shut up and (b) go away. Oh, and also, (c) give feminists money. How silly of me to forget that part.

So you say women need men’s help, because women “are not safe anywhere.” This assertion is followed by a catalog of male misconduct:

Every day that I go out into the world, I am forced to worry about my safety. Every day, I am ogled or honked at or loudly talked about by men from all socioeconomic and racial backgrounds. I have walked through a parking lot with my children and had men three times my age undress me with their eyes. Some of you may say, “What does that even mean? That’s completely subjective.” To you, I say, “If it’s never happened to you, you’ll never know exactly what that feels like.” But I can tell you that every woman I’ve ever met has.
I have been followed. I have been harassed. I have been grabbed at and “accidentally” brushed against and was even almost abducted once. I was 10 when the harassment began. 11 when the grabbing began. 18 at the time of the attempted abduction. Followed at 23. I could go on.

Let me ask you to reconsider the bolded phrase, ma’am. Is it really true that the perpetrators of this public harassment are from every socioeconomic background? Are you ogled and honked at every day by, e.g., corporate executives? Research scientists? Millionaire trial lawyers?

Pardon my skepticism about this detail, Mrs. Bosse, but it is rather a sore point with me, having spent more than two years plowing through feminist discourse, which led me to notice a common rhetorical tactic:

[Andrea] Dworkin employed a typical method of feminist “rape culture” propaganda, playing games with statistics and anecdotes. First, use dubious statistical methods to exaggerate the frequency of rape, making it seem commonplace, creating the impression that every man is a violent sexual predator and every woman must live constantly in fear. Then, include anecdotes about particularly atrocious cases (e.g., a gang rape where the accused suspects were not prosecuted) to convey the idea that women are routinely victimized in brutal ways and that the system — patriarchy! —–is deliberately rigged against women.

Atrocities happen, and I don’t dispute any of your specific personal stories, ma’am, but neither do I believe that the perpetrators of violence and sexual harassment are evenly distributed throughout the male population. Yes, of course, practically any man could commit criminal violence against women, but “attempted abduction”? No, it is paranoia to view every man as a potential suspect for such crimes, as feminists generally do. We have laws against these acts, and we have police to enforce the laws and prisons for those convicted of violating the law.

“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. . . . For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good.”
Romans 13:1, 2-4 (KJV)

Respect for the law — “the powers that be” — has dramatically declined during recent decades, and it is this evil spirit of lawlessness that gives rise to the climate of fear in our society. Men who recognize legal authority as “ordained by God” are not terrorizing the innocent. What we are witnessing, in fact, are the inescapable consequences of the deliberate destruction of our culture by its enemies. But I digress . . .

Let me skip to the conclusion of your “Dear Men” column, Mrs. Bosse:

The real issue, the one thing that most women are saying to themselves and each other as they hear of another attack is: Why do I have to live this way? How is that fair?
We shouldn’t and it isn’t.
Men, you may think we’re being paranoid or that it doesn’t happen with the alarming regularity that it does, but I urge you to really look within. Visit your mother, your sister, your cousins or aunts or best female friend. Ask your spouse. Let them tell you what they’ve endured. It will shock you, but it will also open your eyes to the injustice of what we face. Once you’re done listening, the next step is action. Have a conversation with your father, your brother, your cousins, your uncle, work colleagues, your fraternity, your best male friends. Share what you’ve learned. Ask that they listen with open hearts. And no matter what, never ever stop fighting beside us. Help us change the current rape and victim blaming culture. Women deserve to live in a world where they don’t incessantly have to fear being the next attack.
It was never about how best to protect us. It will always be the fact that we need protection at all.

Excuse me, ma’am, for objecting to the insulting dishonesty of your implicit accusation, as you tell your male readers to “look within.” Do you really mean to suggest your Huffington Post readers are guilty of these deeds? And don’t you realize the futility of ordering men to have a “conversation” about “the current rape and victim blaming culture”?

As soon as any man says anything in the presence of a feminist, he will be accused of “mansplaining,” and if he ever dares to disagree with a feminist, he will be denounced as a “misogynist” or worse.

This is consistent with feminism’s totalitarian project of silencing males.

No man can be permitted to speak in his own defense. Men are expected to sit silently while they are insulted and slandered by dishonest smear tactics, because feminism is always a lecture, and never a debate.

Feminism is a synonym for “SHUT UP!”

One might hope, Mrs. Bosse, that you would be concerned about the growing influence of a feminist ideology that demonizes all males, including your husband and your two young sons.

Perhaps you are unaware that feminists are committed to depriving your sons of education and employment opportunities. Perhaps you don’t know that men are already a minority (43%) of U.S. college students, and that male students are effectively persona non grata in fields like psychology, sociology and education, where women now receive more than two-thirds of bachelor’s degrees. Perhaps you don’t realize how male students are systematically deprived of due process on university campuses, or that every year, some 90,000 students on more than 700 campuses in America enroll in Women’s Studies courses where they are indoctrinated in feminism’s anti-male/anti-heterosexual ideology.

“In terms of the oppression of women, heterosexuality is the ideology of male supremacy.”
Margaret Small, “Lesbians and the Class Position of Women,” in Lesbianism and the Women’s Movement, edited by Charlotte Bunch and Nancy Myron (1975)

“The radical feminist argument is that men have forced women into heterosexuality in order to exploit them . . .”
Celia Kitzinger, The Social Construction of Lesbianism (1987)

“If we accept that gender is constructed and that it is not in any way ‘naturally’ or inevitably connected to sex, then the distinction between sex and gender comes to seem increasingly unstable. In that case, gender is radically independent of sex, ‘a free-floating artifice’ as [Professor Judith] Butler puts it, raising the question as to whether ‘sex’ is as culturally constructed as gender; indeed, perhaps sex was always already gender, so that the sex/gender distinction is not actually a distinction at all. Butler dispenses with the idea that either gender or sex is an ‘abiding substance’ by arguing that a heterosexual, heterosexist culture establishes the coherence of these categories in order to perpetuate and maintain what the feminist poet and critic Adrienne Rich has called ‘compulsory heterosexuality’ — the dominant order in which men and women are required or even forced to be heterosexual.”
Sara Salih, Judith Butler (2002)

“There are politics in sexual relationships because they occur in the context of a society that assigns power based on gender and other systems of inequality and privilege. . . . [T]he interconnections of systems are reflected in the concept of heteropatriarchy, the dominance associated with a gender binary system that presumes heterosexuality as a social norm. . . .
“As many feminists have pointed out, heterosexuality is organized in such a way that the power men have in society gets carried into relationships and can encourage women’s subservience, sexually and emotionally.”

Susan M. Shaw and Janet Lee, Women’s Voices, Feminist Visions (fifth edition, 2012)

Given your apparent ignorance of what feminism actually is, Mrs. Bosse, and what the influence of feminism is likely to mean for your sons, permit me to reiterate some points that I have previously made.

Women’s Studies courses are not about teaching facts, but instead are about training political activists. Cult mind-control methods are employed to induce students to accept “feminist consciousness,” which is essentially a religious faith in women’s universal victimhood under patriarchal oppression. Taxpayers are required to fund the higher education system where these beliefs are taught; feminism is thereby subsidized and approved as a matter of official government policy.

The best analysis of what is taught in these programs is Professing Feminism: Education and Indoctrination in Women’s Studies, by Daphne Patai and Noretta Koertge. Professor Patai is also author of another excellent book I highly recommend, Heterophobia: Sexual Harassment and the Future of Feminism. For decades now, these programs have continued with little critical scrutiny, either within academia or from legislators in charge of approving education budgets. Why? Because anyone who questions the need for Women’s Studies courses will instantly be accused of sexism, a rhetorical weapon that feminists have used to expand their hegemonic power within academia, and to silence critics of their agenda.

Look to your own sons, Mrs. Bosse, and ask whether they deserve the scorn that is heaped on males by the feminist fanatics who now exercise hegemonic authority on university campuses. Ask yourself why your boys will face harmful discrimination in the public school system as a result of the prevalence of anti-male prejudices instilled in teachers as part of their required training under feminist professors. As a mother of boys, you might want to read The War Against Boys: How Misguided Policies are Harming Our Young Men by Christina Hoff Sommers, but you haven’t read that book, have you Mrs. Bosse? No, you are evidently indifferent to the increasing hostility toward young men in our society, instead joining forces with feminists in an orchestrated campaign of defamation that blames all men as complicit in “rape culture,” while denying men the opportunity to speak in their own defense.

Well, ma’am, I need no one’s permission to publish here on my own site, and I included your Twitter handle in the headline in hope of calling to your attention the facts you have never bothered to learn. If you ever started writing the truth about feminism, you would be no more welcome at the Huffington Post than would I. You should try it and see.




 

Omens of the Impending Apocalypse

Posted on | August 17, 2016 | No Comments

Scarcely had I finished reporting on the Australian investigation into teenage boys sharing nude photos of minor girls than I read about yet another case, this one in Canada:

A group of teenage boys in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia will stand trial this week for allegedly creating a “sexting ring” through which they shared nude images of their female peers using a Dropbox account.
Two 18-year-olds and four 15-year-olds have been charged with distributing intimate images without consent and possession and distribution of child pornography and will be heading to youth criminal court Wednesday. The boys . . .  are accused of circulating pictures of 20 teenage girls without consent.
The law against distributing intimate images without consent was added to the Criminal Code in March 2015 . . .
The legislation comes after the 2013 suicide of Rehtaeh Parsons, the Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia teen who hung herself after she was allegedly gang raped. Photos of the assault were spread around Parsons’ hometown, resulting in Parsons being tormented by her peers.
Parsons’ dad Glen Canning told VICE the sexting trial signifies a “very big learning curve” for the community in terms of making people realize the gravity of distributing intimate images without consent.
“This isn’t boys being boys, this is beyond that. This is something that could really really hurt somebody.” . . .

You can read the rest. At the hearing today, the trial was postponed at the request of defense lawyers who say they need more time to study the 500 pages of evidence. What is obvious to me, if to no one else, is that cases like these are evidence of parental neglect. How else can we interpret the apparently widespread nature of this problem? How difficult could it be for parents to explain this to their children? NO NUDE SELFIES, EVER!

The apocalypse draws nigh . . .

Australia: Porn Ring Targets Teen Girls

Posted on | August 17, 2016 | 1 Comment

 

This development was probably inevitable:

More than 70 Australian schools are targets for a perverse pornography ring of teen boys and young men secretly swapping and exchanging graphic sexual images of female students and other nonconsenting women.
News.com.au can reveal more than 2000 images have been posted or traded by Australian members since the group began operating in December last year.
Young men use the site to nominate the specific high school or region they are phishing for nude photos from, along with the full names of girls they are “hunting”. Hundreds of individual names have appeared on “wanted” lists, including the names of sisters and entire high school friendship circles.
Once a girl’s name appears on a list, other members of the group then “contribute” by posting identifying information about the intended victim, such as her full name, face, school, home address, and phone number, along with directives like “Go get her boys!”
Any “wins” (a colloquial term referring to nude photos) of the nominated target are then uploaded or offered in exchange for a trade. Some targets are so sought after that “bounties” have been offered for any user who can post a “win”.
In one case, one user offered to trade up to 300 nude images of other victims, in exchange for a single nude photo of the one girl he was currently tracking. Another user said he had been trying to unearth nude images of a particular victim for more than five years. . . .
So far thousands of explicit, nude images of teen girls and young women have been uploaded or traded on the swap-meet site. Some high school girls are pictured performing sexual acts while wearing their school uniform. Other images on the site include graphic close-ups of victim’s genitalia and breasts, and photos of young women engaged in penetrative sexual acts.
The site has been reported numerous times to police for child pornography, but so far they say they are unable to act because the site is hosted overseas. . . .
In total the site mentions 28 high schools in [New South Wales], 18 in Queensland, 15 in Victoria, five in the ACT, two in South Australia and two in Tasmania.

Once every teenager has a cellphone, and every cellphone has a camera, what could we predict kids would do with this technology? When I first started seeing stories like this — nude photos of women posted as “revenge porn” by embittered ex-boyfriends — my reaction was the same as every other adult: “What kind of woman is stupid enough to let her boyfriend take naked pictures of her?” What I failed to understand at the time was that, in fact, many of these women were taking nude photos of themselves and sending these selfies to guys in the mistaken belief that this was “private” activity that nobody would ever know about.

Parents have got to warn their children against this kind of behavior. It’s not just nude photos, either. Too many kids fail to understand that when they are exchanging text messages or sending emails or posting things to online social media, this creates a permanent digital record. You may think you’re having a “private” conversation with your friends but (a) nothing is so private it can’t be hacked, (b) once you send a message, you can’t control what the recipient does with it, and (c) what happens if your supposed “friend” ever becomes unfriendly?

After the second Anthony Weiner scandal broke (“Carlos Danger” sexting with Sydney Leathers), I was driving in the car with my son Jefferson, who was 14 at the time, and I went on a rant: “Never think you can get away with anything like that online! Never send anyone a message that you wouldn’t want to see quoted on the front page of the New York Times!”

This problem is spiraling out of control:

Rampant teen sexting has left politicians and law enforcement authorities around the country struggling to find some kind of legal middle ground between prosecuting students for child porn and letting them off the hook.
Most states consider sexually explicit images of minors to be child pornography, meaning even teenagers who share nude selfies among themselves can, in theory at least, be hit with felony charges that can carry heavy prison sentences and require lifetime registration as a sex offender. . . .
Colorado lawmakers this week delayed a vote on creating a new misdemeanor crime of “misuse of electronic images” by teens.
Colorado’s bill was prompted by a scandal last year at a Canon City high school where more than 100 students were found with explicit images of other teens. The news sent shockwaves through the city of 16,000. Dozens of students were suspended, and the football team forfeited the final game of the season.
Fremont County prosecutors ultimately decided against filing any criminal charges, saying Colorado law doesn’t properly distinguish between adult sexual predators and misbehaving teenagers.
In a similar case last year out Fayetteville, North Carolina, two dating teens who exchanged nude selfies at age 16 were charged as adults with a felony — sexual exploitation of a minor. After an uproar, the charges were reduced to misdemeanors.

What this recent case in Australia shows, however, is that once these images of minors are created, it is difficult to prevent the images from being circulated widely through “peer-to-peer” networks. The basic principle of hacking — “Information wants to be free,” as Stewart Brand said — applies also to nude photos of teenagers. Once any such image is created, keeping it private becomes a permanent problem, and anyone who doesn’t understand this is dangerously ignorant of how technology operates. Law enforcement is playing catch-up with this problem:

“The Australian Federal Police is aware of the existence of a website which encourages users to upload images of a sexual nature. A number of these images allegedly depict nonconsenting and/or underage women,” the statement read.
“The AFP is currently liaising with its domestic and international law enforcement partners and relevant government agencies to evaluate this matter and to determine appropriate courses of action.”
While the power to shut down the site may remain out of the AFP’s hands, it warned those sharing images on the site were doing so within Australia, and they could be prosecuted.
“It is important to note that creating, accessing or distributing child pornography is a serious offence, even if you are a child yourself,” the statement read.
“Child pornography offences have a maximum penalty of 15 years’ imprisonment.”
[New South Wales] Police issued a similar statement, reminding users of the site they were in fact breaking the law by sharing explicit photographs, even if they were underage.
“They should be aware they could be arrested and charged and, if convicted, will have a criminal record,” NSW Police said.

Relying on law enforcement to prosecute these crimes after the fact is a poor substitute for preventing these crimes. Parents must warn their kids: NO NUDE SELFIES, EVER, UNDER ANY CONDITION!




 

Hate Group @SJPUTK Want Jews to Die

Posted on | August 17, 2016 | No Comments

 

Muslim students and other anti-Israel activists at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville (UTK) have created a “hostile environment” for Jewish students on campus, according to watchdogs, but the university’s administration seems to be blind to the terrorist threat:

Canary Mission, a secretive watchdog group that compiles dossiers on students and academics it accuses of anti-Semitism, claimed in two releases earlier this month that it found dozens of problematic social media posts by current and former members of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and the Muslim Students Association (MSA) at UTK.
Some of those posts incited or personally threatened violence, it has claimed.
In response to the administration’s subsequent denials that the campus is infested with rampant anti-Semitism, Canary Mission and Jewish campus groups doubled down, demanding stronger denunciations of the “cesspool” created by the Muslim student groups.
Canary Mission told The Algemeiner Aug. 4 it found a “disturbing trend” of anti-Semitic behavior reflected in social media posts by SJP and MSA members, naming six in particular.
The administration initially responded that the watchdog group, which declines to identify its membership, had overstated campus hostilities toward Jewish students.
It told WATE Aug. 9 that the administration “does not condone” the alleged anti-Semitic statements – seven posts over five years – but believed that the current and former students “were within their constitutional rights to post their personal viewpoints,” and they were not “made on behalf of any of our student organizations.” . . .
Last October, UTK SJP Vice President Fatima Itmaizah switched her Facebook profile picture to a graphic apparently advocating a violent solution to the existence of Jewish people in the Holy Land. . . .
Mohamed Ali, a member of SJP and MSA, tweeted April 7, 2015: “I feel so incredibly irritable right now. No idea why…Just feel like kicking a Zionist tbh [to be honest].” . . .

(Hat-tip: Instapundit.) We are two years away from the 70th anniversary of the founding of modern Israel, which occurred in the immediate aftermath of the Holocaust in Europe. Two generations later, many young people have been indoctrinated with a left-wing “social justice” worldview which gives credence to the slanderous claim that Arabs and Muslims are victims of oppression under Jewish “apartheid” in Israel. This false belief bears no resemblance to the reality of the situation, and is simply anti-Jewish propaganda that inspires terrorism. The history of this conflict, and of the Middle East generally, suggests that if the advocates of Israel’s destruction were to get what they want — i.e., the death of every Jew in “Palestine” — this would plunge the Arab population of the region into a nightmare existence under a radical Islamic terrorist regime.

Destroying Israel will not solve the problems of Palestinians, but the bloodthirsty prejudice of radical Muslims isn’t about solving problems. Their agenda is not about “peace,” it’s about dead Jews.

Why the hell are fanatical Jew-hating advocates of terrorism being tolerated at the University of Tennessee? Expel them all.
