Activism in Lower Manhattan
Date: Friday, June 15th Time: 9 am Location: Foley Square in Lower ManhattanTwo civil rights groups have applied for permits behind a rally in support of equal rights for fathers in a case being heard on June 15, 2012 in New York City. The case, John Parent v State of New York, asks a federal appeals court to place limits upon support and custody abuses in our nation’s domestic relations courts. “John Parent” is a fictitious name allowed by court order to represent abused parents in this precedent seeking case. Finally, an opportunity has arrived for all abused parents and families to show unity and support. It may never come again. But you have to be there to make a difference, otherwise the abuses WILLcontinue! Don’t think that someone else is going to do it for you. YOU are that “someone else”.
Here is the blog page from which I lifted the foregoing passage:
And as I have previously stated, I am an AGITATOR. . . and not an "activist". However, I am always happy to do what I can to boost my cohorts in the activism section. Hence, I share this news today.
Yes, the non-feminist revolution is hydra-headed, and extends into many realms simultaneously.
So what's this got to do with feminism? Well, since this campaign is (among other things) battling to make life better for men, you can be damned sure that feminist voices will speak against it. Feminism is all about making life worse for men in any way possible, and so no true feminist can do other than hiss about such an effort, and spit about it, and denounce it, and do anything feasible to crush it. Such is feminism.
And if my description of feminism does not seem to apply to you personally, then you would do wisely to not call yourself a feminist. If you don't want to be herded into the same corral and branded with the same iron as a bunch of man-hating assholes and gendercidalists, then please call yourself something other than a "feminist". Okay?
