Hatred of Men is Feminism's Operative Core Principle
#Feminism is inherently misandric,because its core presumption will always be: "Men are the problem! Men must change!" #womenagainstfeminismJudging by the number of retweets in the last 24 hours, this item has struck a sweet spot in the zeitgeist. Apparently, it's what a lot of people are avid to hear right now. So you can keep the ball rolling by hitting that button too!

Feminism is What We Say it Is -- and Here's Why
Feminism is never defined, by the feminists, in a way that describes, or accounts for, the totality of the project.

Worth-Based Entitlement - A Repost
I find no good reason to believe that women are uniquely "oppressed", or that their sufferings in life transcend the common lot of humanity. And more, I can see a strong case that men have it worse in many ways.
But feminist theory maintains that women as a group are oppressed by men as a group, and specifically names women as a "political sex class". Moreover, feminist preaching for many years has openly incited women to see themselves in such terms. Such is the sisterhood trope. Furthermore, the last half-century has witnessed a mushrooming growth of women's advocacy groups, lobbying groups, government bureaux, and all manner of special services for women both public and private.
But it doesn't end with blind favoritism toward women. No. The state of matters takes a malignant turn when you consider that female citizens presently enjoy disproportionate power to compromise the well-being of male citizens. As simply as we can put it, women have the power to lie about men with impunity, in a way that seriously harms them. And that power, being vested in laws and institutions, becomes a political power and makes women a political class.
To put this another way, it is not women, but MEN who are "oppressed". Oppression, as feminist theory informs us, is structural. It is rooted not in the power of individuals, but in the power of institutions made disproportionately available to some groups and not others. And when the disfavored group feels the institutionally-based power of the favored group like a boot on its neck, only then may we correctly say that "oppression" is taking place. So that is why men (not women) are the oppressed group in today's civilization -- because the power of women to harm men is embodied in laws and institutions. In other words, structurally. If we are to hold the feminists to the letter of their own law, we must insist that they acknowledge this.
What we have related here tilts the political board against men as a group. In light of this, we feel no hesitation in stating that men, as a group, have no political obligation to go to bat for women as a group. Under the circumstances, why should they? Rationally speaking, men would do best to look out for themselves as individuals and to form contracts of mutual assistance in order to multiply the benefit. No consideration, either moral or utilitarian, can inspire me with any sense of duty toward women as a group. This would be true even in the best of times, but is doubly true at present, when men are an oppressed class.
Therefore any individual woman I meet will get special consideration from me only as an individual, and only if she proves herself worthy. And clearly, some will prove themselves worthier than others. This way of thinking entails no "misogyny" because it entails no opinion, either good or ill, about women as a group.
Now, misogyny means disaffection toward women irrespectively. Hence, even if you were to form a bad opinion about every female person on earth, it would not entail misogyny if you had weighed each case on its merits. You would merely harbor a bad opinion about this woman, that woman, and the next woman -- but not about women.
I am far from having evaluated every woman on earth, and I know my life is too short to do that. So I am content to say that I harbor no opinion either good or ill about the huge majority of women, but that as I make their acquaintances I will evaluate them one at a time. Then, according to the case, I will form a social contract binding myself to specific behaviors. Upon that base alone, I will decide what, if anything, I "owe" to the individual in question. In this, I do just as I would do with any man -- I am entirely even-handed.
Yes. Characterization by merit is a first principle, and it frames my conduct toward everyone I meet. Nobody, man or woman, is "entitled" to anything save what I, by my good pleasure, bountifully proffer -- and calculation of merit weighs considerably in that dispensation. In short, I study the manifested qualities of other people in living form, and work from there.
But prudential considerations are always uppermost in my thinking, with an eye to rational self-preservation grounded in a prescience of natural consequences. My policy, then, entails a strategizing sense of the Kantian hypothetical imperative: "If you want the world to be X, you must do Y and Z." The reason is, that if you fail to do Y and Z, then by natural consequence the world will not be X.
So in the end, although my conduct is governed purely by a moral law within myself, that moral law is framed by the considerations which I have sketched above. I should add that it never hurts to get on my good side. Deal squarely and rightly with me, and I shall be the truest friend you could ask for. Otherwise, things might get sticky.
Feminism views women as an entitled class, and fails to hold them accountable as individuals. I find this both pernicious and unworkable, and for that reason (among many others) I reject feminism as a movement and as an ideology. I disavow it. I disclaim ownership in it. I repudiate the cultural narrative which it imposes and I wash my hands of any project predicated on any aspect of that narrative.
Briefly then, I am not a feminist and no power in the universe will force me to become one.
Finally, no woman I shall ever meet may exercise any claim upon me in the name of feminism, or under color of feminism in any form. She is entitled to nothing until she proves to me that she is worth something.
Such is worth-based entitlement.

Diplomatic Protocol that Every Feminist Must Follow
Any #feminist who engages a non-feminist in discussions of a gender-political flavor, must self-disclose as feminist. #womenagainstfeminismIt doesn't matter how many non-feminists might waive this rule in practice. It is still the rule, and any feminist who won't abide by it may be disregarded and dismissed.

Damning Definition of a 'White Knight'

They Must Walk Their Talk
Long Comment at KSU Sentinel
I commend Ashli Howell for respecting protocol, by forthrightly disclosing her position as "feminist", and by doing so right at the beginning of her article. Many feminists try to be shifty about this, so it is good to see that Ms. Howell is an exception.
I will disclose my own position. I am non-feminist.
The purpose of KSUM, is to establish a non-feminist social and intellectual oasis (or "safe space", as some might call it). Ms. Howell clearly objects to such a thing at Kennesaw, so I can only assume that she'd rather silence non-feminist voices in academia, and maintain the feminist hegemony.
Ms. Howell's stance, as revealed in the article, is clearly that of feminist subjectivism. To merely call oneself a "feminist" bestows no authority to tell others what is or is not feminism. We all live in the same world and have access to the same information, hence we are all entitled to draw conclusions as we see fit and discuss these accordingly. That is especially true in academia, where the free exchange of ideas ought to be held in high esteem.
So if the non-feminist group KSUM wishes to "critique feminism for the damage it has caused due to its inherent hatred of males," then I say "full speed ahead". Those sound like pretty serious matters, yet I get the impression that Ms. Howell doesn't want them to be talked about at all. But surely, feminism OUGHT to be critiqued for its inherent hatred of males, and for the damage this has caused. To me, that sounds like an urgent issue, and I can't help wondering why Ashli Howell would want to sweep it under the rug.
Ashli Howell devotes a long paragraph to discussing AVFM, but apparently doesn't notice that AVFM is not KSUM. These are separate organizations. Nor is there really such a thing as "the men's rights movement" -- apart from the phrase itself, there is no monolithic entity or point source that one may properly assign that title to. As the saying goes, "there is no 'there' there."The article to which this was attached, may be viewed here. Hopefully it will not get moderated:
Moving along . . . I have a problem with the following statement:
"The final problem I have is that the men’s rights movement really misses the mark. They believe that because you are pro-woman, you must be anti-man."
Ms. Howell misses the mark here, for reasons explained above, namely, that there is no "men's rights movement" in a concretely identifiable sense. As such, it is simply misleading to suggest that "they (who is "they"?) believe that because you are pro-woman, you must be anti-man." That generalization has no warrant, and does no credit to the author.
The bottom line is, that if there is to be any meaningful discussion of feminism, and its implication in men's problems, and its coexistence with the non-feminist community at KSU or anywhere on Earth, then "the hate has got to stop" -- and that means from all directions. "Extremist" feminists are not the issue here. All of feminism is the issue here, because all of feminism is implicated.
It is simply not possible to discuss men's issues in isolation from a broader critique of feminism. Certain conversations must (and will) take place, and academia has always been the venue of choice for such talk.
KSU, by providing a space for such discourse, can make itself a shining example to schools everywhere, and to the world at large.

Thought for the Moment: On MGTOW
By "MGTOW principle", I mean the morally justified prioritization of male self-interest as against the anti-male zeitgeist of the feminist regime.
However, I disavow any human group, clique or club which sticks the label "MGTOW" to itself.
Hopefully, that clears things up. ;)
A Lot of People Don't Want to Talk About Feminism
A "conspiracy theorist" recently twitted the above ^^ at me.
So why am I presenting this? What is the takeaway point here? What is the object lesson?
It is this: that a lot of people want to steer the conversation away from feminism. Some of these people are feminists, others are not, and their motives will vary.
And yet, they all want to steer the conversation away from feminism.
Sort of makes you go "hmmm", doesn't it?
Well. . . counter-feminist analysis holds that we must keep feminism, as a topic, front and center.
But if I were to reply to "EqualB4Law", I would start by granting, just for the sake of argument, that the Illuminati are real. Then I would define "feminism" as a tool of the illuminati, and would quickly suggest that we ought to wreck their tools.
Yes, I am a strong believer in fighting the power by wrecking their tools.
Hey, you never know, the Illuminati might just turn out to be real. But whichever way it rolls we've got our bases covered, and we are reclaiming power in a very real way.

Feminist Micro-Aggression: Sneaky Language
Are the Feminists Planning a Smear Attack on the Computer Gaming Community?
We make no claims, but we are presenting this material for the consideration of the world. We know what kind of people feminists and "social justice warriors" are, and how they operate, and we certainly don't put such a thing past them.
But still, we cannot pretend to know anything for certain. So, decide for yourself.
And if so inclined, share this widely by publicizing the Reddit link given above.

Thoughts for the Moment
1. Failing to engage you as a non-feminist individual, and instead treating you as part of a collective.
2. Making YOU the subject of conversation, rather than the topic at hand.
Short form: You are an individual, and the conversation is not about you.

Nicht-Feminist Deutschland - auf Berlin

Counter-Feminist Plans for 2014 Edmonton Walk-a-Mile Parade
Please tweet this, and skype this, and Facebook this, and e-mail this, and Reddit this, and propagate this in every way that occurs to you.
Academic Feminism and Pop Feminism
Feminism as a whole needs both the academic and the pop cohorts. The academic cohort is needful so that feminism will have an intellectual vanguard -- so that the snake will have a head, in other words. The pop cohort is needful so that the vanguard ideology will be demographically incarnated in numbers -- so that the snake will have a body, in other words.
Sophisticated ideas originate from the academic cohort, and trickle down to the pop cohort by the process of popularization.

Feminism Has Ulterior Motives
Everything which "feminism" does, serves one core purpose: to increase the power of women. And over the long term, the agenda has been to increase the power of women with no limit. This process operates, for the most part, blindly and mechanically. That is why we are now in such a dangerously unbalanced situation. Power for women (in myriad forms) has grown out of proportion to responsibility.
Feminism's Essence is Visible to Outsiders from Where They Stand
The complete phenomenology of female supremacism outdistances what any given feminist would candidly acknowledge to be feminism, and the word feminism itself operates as a misdirection of attention. So if we marshall our understanding according to feminist categories, we will never stop looking where the feminist finger is pointing, and that finger will never point us toward victory or truth. Indeed, it will never point us toward anything but a continually evolving female supremacist future.
And that is why we should brush aside quite brusquely what feminists say about feminism. We non-feminists in general, and men in particular, are on the receiving end of feminist innovation. The impact is on US, so we have a perfect right to say what feminism is or isn't from our own end of the transaction. Our input upon that point is as valid as any. We know best of all where the shoe pinches our foot.

A Potent, Viral Idea in 140 Characters
@KristalDGarcia Let's not forget that w/out MEN giving them power, they would likewise b nothing. The people giveth,&the people taketh away.
— Fidelbogen (@fidelbogen) August 22, 2014
I recently had the above Twitter exchange with Kristal Garcia, the Honeybadger. This one is a keeper.
Kristal's original statement is excellent and thought-provoking -- an inversion of conventional wisdom that simply cannot be answered!
My reply takes it to the next level.
Yes, it is true that feminism would be nothing without the support of women -- or at least some portion of women. However, what's equally true is that feminism would be nothing without the support of men.
Hence, we conclude that without the support of humanity at large, feminism would.. . . .
Hey...I just got interrupted by some Mormon missionaries who wanted to share their faith! I politely sent them on their way. . .
Okay, where were we?
Oh yes..... without the support of humanity at large, feminism would be just like those Mormon missionaries, peddling their philosophy from door to door.
You see, just as the Church of Latter Day Saints depends on the support of humanity at large (or at least some portion thereof), so too does feminism.
Yes. Feminism owes us, humanity at large, a big debt of gratitude for underwriting its very existence.
And that is something that we ALL need to think about.
