How the Feminist DV Industry
Politicizes the Personal
All right . . . they hate her guts!
But you know what? I think Trudy Schuett is okay, because today she has made my life a little bit easier. You see, Trudy has written an excellent five-part article series, and I can send you to read it instead of writing something myself! That way, I needn't do any work on the blog—and I can catch up on some involved correspondence. (Well all right, that too is work! )
Here is a sample from part five of the series:
"So much damage has been done to people, their children and their lives because the system has intervened with bad solutions, in the belief it is protecting people from themselves, it is simply unconscionable.
"There is some hope this terrible system can be put right. There are whispers of change coming from many directions. In the UK, their government decided this year DV services must provide truly equal help for both men and women, or face de-funding. In San Diego County, The California Men's Center was instrumental in making changes to a training video, allowing law enforcement professionals to better comprehend the real nature of domestic violence. Also in California, a conference here. These are but a few of the encouraging things that are happening in the field now. was held in June featuring many of the best-known researchers, advocates and providers of aid discussing New Perspectives approaches. Cathy Young talks about it in the Boston Globe,
"More recently, Governor Schwarzenegger of California has eliminated state funding for DV services. Robert Franklin of Fathers and Families, said about the funding cut at Glenn Sacks.com, '[W]hatever the motivations behind the governor’s decision, remember that he’s a politician and, whatever else may be true, he considers it politically safe to cut 100% of state funding for DV shelters.' "

. . . and you will find links to the other four parts.
I'm sure you'll want to savor every drop of this, as well as investigating the many external links, and downloading some of the interesting PDFs. It is all counter-feminist information of the first order, and I've no doubt you'll want to pass it along to others. Such is the mainstay of our campaign strategy: brute force "assault" upon the feminist worldview by prolonged and reiterated bombardment. The more we spread the alternative view of reality, the more numbers we will activate in our sector, and the more precarious their position will become as they expend greater and greater energy fending off the growing legion of doubting, challenging, heckling voices.
The time for argument is past. The time for shoving them to the wall is present. And in time, the opposing sector will understand that they must negotiate a framework of co-existence.
HERE is something unrelated, just for laughs:
