Only Men should go to Prison

An interesting article has appeared in the online BBC News today. Snippet follows:
Women's prisons should close, says justice taskforce
The report said community sentences instead of prison would help reduce reoffending among women. Women should not be sent to prison and should instead serve community sentences, according to a new report by the Women's Justice Taskforce.
You know, it's odd. Rather than make me angry, this makes me fold my arms and feel validated. As if we didn't have enough evidence already that men are third-class citizens, the pile keeps growing. Now it seems, in one country at least, that men are the only ones worthy of being chucked into the slammer.

Of course, this is nothing new. Baroness Corston, waaay back in 2007, was preaching the same sermon:

I say this makes me feel validated. I mean that when I contemplate such things, I am less inclined to feel sad about any aches and pains that women might suffer in this life. Nor am I burdened by any sense of responsibility to DO something about it. Such "burden", if it ever truly existed, gets progressively lighter as stories like this come down the pike.

It's nothing personal. The average woman isn't responsible for this state of affairs - it's just the way things are right now. But oh, that patriarchal male privilege. Gotta love it! Why, it even gives women their very own justice taskforce, presumably "manned" by women unless somebody informs me otherwise.

Time for a stroll down memory lane. Do you remember this old favorite?


This meme is NOT the product any radical feminist womyn's art collective. In fact it was created by a schmuck named Todd Goldman, who featured this and similarly themed illustrations on such products as clothing (marketed to teen-aged girls), calendars (sold in places like Walmart) and cute little purse books (merchandised to the female market in respectable bookstores).

Such is the message being drummed into the heads of, for example, high-school girls. In three or four years, they will head off to college for their first Women's Studies class. So think of this as a head-start program! ;)

Todd Goldman is a mainstream graphic designer who happens to be male and knows how to make a buck. And he is savvy enough to tap into the mainstream demographic represented by Sharon Osbourne and crew, and by their female audience members who laughed hysterically about a man getting his penis cut off. Well at least nobody threw any rocks at the poor guy -- so I guess Todd Goldman has clean hands. . . . right?

But anyhow, Sharon Osbourne, her panelists, and her audience members, are not radical feminist womyn by a long chalk.  So at least they are not recommending male genocide, and that is good to know. Likewise,  I understand perfectly well that moderate mainstream feminists would never condone such things. How do I know this? Because I have chatted with enough of them to hear what they typically say. And yes, that is what they typically say.

I would grant that your average "radfem" of the Agent Orange variety would take no exception to throwing rocks at boys, or for that matter, males of any age. But your average mainstream feminist, who is humane and civilized, would quickly reassure us along the following lines:

1. Don't take it literally!
2. Lighten up! It's only a t-shirt!
3. It has nothing to do with feminism!
4. Oh quit whining!

And while a radical feminist man-hater might declare that men have the same designation as annoying rodents, a cutesy "sex columnist" like Anka Radakovich would draw the line well south of that. She would only compare men to dogs -- which sounds a lot better than calling them rodents, don't you think so? Oh. . and Anka is quick to assure us that even though men may be dogs, "we love them anyway."  Just like the good old family pooch, I reckon. Well that's a comfort!

But seriously, do you sense the pattern to all of this? Men are annoying rodents. Men are dogs. Boys are stupid. Throw rocks at boys. Don't send women to prison. Women are the primary victims of war.  Do you spot the anti-male attitude arc which runs through our entire culture like a gaudy red line?

I sure as hell do.

All right. Here is a link to the Agent Orange files:

Hey, on the Todd Goldman picture, do you notice how the flying rocks resemble sperm, and the boy's head looks like an ovum? Interesting. . .yes?

Dig into that story to see that one of the main reasons they want to close women's prisons is because in the past 10 years, female crime has grown 300%!!!!

They can't pay for women's prisons, there are sooooooo many criminal skanks over there.

We are witnessing the unfolding of feminist poison: women are not "rising." They are descending into a sewer of degeneracy at such a rate, the socialists can't figure out how to pay for their transgressions.

Boy are stupid, throw rocks at them?

Try this: WOMEN ARE WORTHLESS!

Misandry is much bigger than feminism.

However feminism is still part of many contributing factors.

Yes, misandry is bigger than feminism. It was in the world long before feminism existed in name, and feminism tapped into it. Without misandry, feminism wouldn't amount to a hill of fluff.

Feminism is politically organized misandry.

"Try this: WOMEN ARE WORTHLESS!"

Ahhh... you are a man who speaks his mind freely!

As for me, I would draw the line at saying that "a LOT of women are worthless."

While others are indeed worth something.

(But feminism does not encourage the latter, as I have explained numerous times.)

all women are not worthless... some of them, hold the magic, they can do the simplest things, and make life better by an ordinal degree... why are they not satisfied with the gifts they have... ... ...? guess depends on which woman, since some are, satisfied, and, well, nice, others aren't. but i don't agree all women are worthless, any more than i agree that "men are the prawwwwblem" - that's not it.

Thank you, that is the rhetorical policy that we need to foster.

Although I am always politically context-sensitive when I assess potentially "misogynistic" statements. The feminists are a pack of shameless hypocrites when they fling the word "misogyny" around. Most of the present sour feeling by men, toward women, wouldn't even be happening were it not for the consequences of feminist meddling in the life of the world.

Feminism has generated the societal conditions in which mutual animus between the sexes cannot possibly not increase.

So when any feminist juggles with the word "misogyny" or "misogynist", then he/she should be made to STFU.

I have spoken.

thanks Fidelbogen... i appreciate what you said in one of the utube entries, that 'misogyny', really ought to be relegated to an almost clinical use - mean people are not necessarily sociopaths, people who don't like incessantly whining dogs don't "hate animals", and people who disagree with one's point of view ought not be accused of hatred of whatever special interest group or gender they happen to disagree with. seems obvious when stated. outside of an appropriate circumstance, tossing around 'misogyny' is laughable self parody, whether the user of the term comprehends it (with help) or not does not make it less so. in my (oh thankful tidings) few actual 'discussions' with feminists i have abruptly just started laughing when they start the talking points, even when they don't get it, i find it helps me a little and halts the waste of my time and headspace. an irony here is that i think, alternatively, 'misandry' is actually used appropriately in many cases, because the hatred of mere male expression, even, seems to be met with a sort of disgust, and attempts to forcefully stifle, shaming, etc. just some thoughts. if anybody reading this has not had a gander and a listen to the Fidelbogen Youtube entries etal, they need to get over there, check it out. good, good stuff. there're a lot of views, but there should be a tons more. every guy who ever got shut down by some bullshit femspeak... hmmm.

Interestingly, I am now putting the final editing touches on part 3 of the Misogyny series, and it ought to be posted in about an hour from now!

An additional reason not to send women to prison is that they may be raped and live in fear, servitude, and a state of sexual slavery. To other inmates, that is. Ironically, these victims of lesbian rape, well, being inmates, and women, they don't seem to have much voice. Seems like feminists might want to complain very loudly about how their sisters are being raped in prison, by other women. At any rate, there is Lori Girshick, she has a website. Lesbian domestic violence and rape seem to be key issues for her. Wonder how she rates with radfem crowd.

BY OTHER WOMEN.

just kind of see the need to uh, underscore a bit here...

women should fear going to prison because of the rape lifestyle they may be subjected to...

BY OTHER WOMEN.

just mentioning.

would love to 'mention' this at radfem hub, but i think they'd just discreetly censor.

women

rape

women

when given

the opportunity.

indeed, it simply staggers the mind, and here I thought they were such a naturally well-behaved lot.

What about men? Aren't they exposed to violence in general? Paedophiles are murdered in male prisons, a lot are physically hurt, and not just in a 'sexual' way, but are genuinely in need of medical attention . the guilt in male prisons is reinforced by your inmates, and generally. Male prisons are a lot worse. The rape factor exists in male prisons as well, and there is the 'don't drop the soap' joke originating from male prisons.
