You Ought To Hear About This

Crystal Gail Mangum, the rape liar in the Duke lacrosse false rape trial, has been arrested for domestic violence, attempted murder, arson, and one or two other things. I thank NotNOW for bringing this to my attention:

http://www.wral.com/news/local/story/7068705/

I have absolutely no sympathy for CGM, or anybody like her, and if all such people rot underneath a bus in hell, it probably won't begin happening soon enough for my liking.

On a closely related note: I am not aware of any feminist anywhere who has actually 'squared up' to the reality of the Duke lacrosse case. Nary a one of them, to my knowledge, has come right out and made any speech such as the following:

"The Duke lacrosse false rape trial was a social disaster. It was a monstrosity, a dark hour in our history, a blot upon our name and a stain upon our honor. We feminists, along with the Gang of 88 and all political fellow-travellers, must apologize in a heartfelt manner to the Duke defendants and their families for the hateful, poisonous agitation that we have made against them, and we must apologize to all ordinary decent people everywhere for the ugly fears, rancorous divisions, moral panics and other mental toxins that we have so wantonly spawned and spread throughout society for many years. Furthermore, we fully deserve to get our collective ass kicked for being moronic twits, pompous windbags, nauseating hypocrites and idiotic drama queens—as we so sickeningly are and have always been!! Again, we bow our heads in abject shame, sorrow, and critical self-loathing. There is no excuse for us!"

Do you suppose they will ever come to any such mea culpa? Or must they be made to grovel??

It's an interesting tactic Fidelbogen - posting apologies on behalf of feminists for specific wrongs they have perpetrated all over the internet.

If they won't take the initiative, there's nothing stopping us from doing it for them.

Yes, it's hilarious how, despite the fact of supposed female superiority they are still so ruled by emotional response.

as for Crystal, that's some ironic justice there, or could one say :/ yeah, probably could see that coming... If she gets sympathy from anyone, I'll be upset

Another Fact:

"Lorena Bobbitt didn't make it a full year after her vicious sex-crime before she was very quietly thrown in jail for assaulting her own mother and sister"

Bet you did not know that - I didn't!

Not too surprising though...

About ever hearing an apology from any feminist - forget it.

It seems to me that one "agenda" of feminism is to paint women into a corner, where they are impervious to any outside criticism.

"About ever hearing an apology from any feminist - forget it."

Who's to say they need to be feminists? I think I could belt out a fairly convincing apology and sound like a genuine radfem. The key thing is to not concede on a few obvious points, but apologize in principle on only one. Total surrender would give your identity away in a second.

What's the point though? Good question. Most feminists aren't really all that bright. They are what they are from imitation. We all learn through the example of others, and any woman with an appetite for playing the victim is vulnerable to feminist dogma. Feminists need some variety in their diet. Once they start seeing apologies for past excesses from the sisters, some will start imitating it - especially if there's some kind of emotional reward. For that one need only say something like:

"since acknowledging the wrong I did to men in this matter (but only this matter - I'm not going weak-kneed bimbo on ya!), I've felt more empowered as a woman and a feminist. Being fair is what we women are all about."

This would probably pass the fembot censors at Feministing (though I'm not so sure you'd get it past A Room Of Our Own - any capitulation is strictly verboten there).

The closest to an "apology" I have yet heard from any feminist or collaborationist, is a somewhat patronizing concession that "the MRAs do have a point about certain divorce laws, custody laws, etc."

And that is the ONLY concession they will make. Other than that, we are all "wingnuts" and "wackjobs" and so on.

But to challenge feminism itself? Verboten! After the regulation "what's that got to do with feminism?" cop-out, you'll be told that you must "work with feminism to secure justice for everybody"- and for an extra goody they might even toss in that moldy old dishrag about "patriarchy hurts men too!"

Apologies from them? Oh hell, a simple admission of the ugly TRUTH about certain things (and not just one item on the list!) would be a huge step forward.

"...despite the fact of supposed female superiority they are still so ruled by emotional response."

This business of being 'ruled by emotional response' is adroitly rationalized by the more advanced patriarchy theorists. Apparently, it is a quality that men must begin emulating. (See, men need to relinquish "patriarchal power and control", and become more "empathetic" or "compassionate" or the like.)

All of it is patently and transparently a way to make men more controllable.

As much as I would love to have my emotionally oblivious husband a little more sensitive and aware (I mean, trust me, most guys would have to try to be this oblivious but to him it's completely natural), when it comes to the broader spectrum of "male-dom" being expected to get in touch with their feelings, well, that's just gay.

@Trent13:

Yup, we're all flawed creatures one way or the other. The crime of feminism is a.) to see only the flaws of "men", and b.) turn this into something "political". . .

As in 'the personal is political'.

As for the "just gay" part. . . eh... well technically, that is a "patriarchal" thing to be saying - remembering that patriarchy in its wider meaning means "hierarchical systems of dominance and privilege." It's quite something really, how far this "patriarchy" thing extends. In theory, at any rate.

Anointing patriarchy with great powers of deception is an effective means of defending feminism against negative criticism. In the same way, women's power grabs and participation is acts of violence can be excused as "manipulation by negative masculine ideals."

Feminists will not apologize as that would be backtracking, i.e., run contrary to their movements politico-moral purity and sexual politics. The contradiction made possible, and acceptable, by the "moral force" of feminist victimology is that, even while the exponents of women's victim status dwell on the powerlessness of women, these exponents are anything but lacking in political, intellectual, and ultimately institutional power.

The political power in playing the victim is shored up by moralism, and the configuration is contradictory given that this moralism is in turn founded on claims of powerlessness.

Well that didn't take long. Two days later and this appears:

In Defense of Men

Read the comments. Nice specimen of providing an example.

That column was a nice little trendstarter, I suppose. But you can probably guess what I am going to say: It wasn't radical enough.

Also. . I didn't much care for the dippy title of the thing. Defense of men??

It offends me to be "defended".

So... as a culture, we've got a ways to go yet. :(

I agree. But I couldn't expect it to be. How's that Chinese saying go about the greatest journeys starting with a single step? (and brother, do we have one great journey ahead of us!)

As for the title, I assumed it was a paraphrasing of Mencken's "In Defense of Women". Considering he made a very unflattering defense of them further sours the sentiment - but I remain ever the optimist when I can see a clear path ahead of me.

I wonder, if this lying tramp is sent to prison, will she be recognized by any inmates who are actual past rape victims. At either rate, I bet she gets the infamous " vagina pass" via feminist jurisprudence and the chivalrous/misandrist sentencing guidelines of the southern courts, where a woman is almost always beleived to be telling the truth when she claims victimhood.
