Domestic Violence Shelter for Men -- Help Out With Funding!
Why, you would think that with men being half of all DV victims, the shelters would populate themselves accordingly. You'd think they would do that, wouldn't you? I mean, that would be eminently reasonable, wouldn't it? Surely it is a grotesque double standard that men, who are fully half of all domestic violence victims, cannot find refuge from violent women.
And yet the feminists give the dagger an extra twist when they proclaim that men commit a whopping 95% of all domestic violence. That is what the feminists say, and they have been saying it for thirty years or more! I think it is ironic and revealing that the false ratio of 95% male perpetrators to 5% female perpetrators so closely mimics the disproportionality of shelter services available to men and women respectively.
But it doesn't stop there. For not only do the feminists blame men for the bulk all of domestic violence, but they actually pretend to know what motivates such behavior. Now, the following might seem to imply that the feminists have unnatural omniscience or clairvoyance, but this is them talking, not me. Get ready. They have repeatedly informed us, over the years, that men commit domestic violence because they (men) wish to exert "patriarchal power and control" over women! No, I am not making that up. The feminists really do say that!
Proof? They don't need any bloody proof! They're feminists, so they can pull "facts" out of their ass any time they wish to do so. And why? Because they're "the women's movement", that's why!
Now, you and I know perfectly well that a man might take a pop at his wife for any number of reasons, and that most of these have fuck all to do with so-called "patriarchy". For example, she might have nagged him beyond endurance while he suffered from an agonizing toothache -- or some equally poignant scenario. Furthermore, you and I might reasonably demand to know where in hell the feminists get their intimate knowledge about millions of people they've never even met. Have the feminists got surveillance gear and paid informants to keep tabs on every single household in the country? Is there a board-certified "feminist-in-residence" sitting at every family dinner table, taking notes about the socio-dynamics? Do they know for a certifiable FACT that every time a man slaps his woman around, he is driven by strictly "patriarchal" motives, and none other?
But rest assured, my friend, they're feminists. So they can pull "facts" out of their ass any time they wish to do so. And why? Because they're "the women's movement", that's why!
All right. Not only do the feminists lie through their teeth when they say that men commit the bulk of all domestic violence, but they turn around and lie about the motivational underpinning of the same very behavior they lied about in the first place. So yes, they stack one lie on top of another, and they shamelessly repeat this over and over and over . . and they never quit!
And mark my words, they never will. Or not unless they are compelled, in some harsh way, to do so.
But the reason I am writing this now, is to tell you about a man in Ohio who plans to open a domestic violence shelter for men. And he is in the fund-raising stage this very minute. He needs to pull together $100,000, and so far he has $110, so clearly he has a way to go. But he means to bank the proceeds of the present campaign and immediately run another campaign in order to secure the necessary money. Go here to read all about it:
This, indeed, is activism to help men. And in the fullness of my heart I salute all such efforts. I want to see these efforts multiply, succeed wildly, and then multiply some more. To my mind, helping men and damaging feminism cannot be viewed in isolation from each other. The two are intertwined and indeed morally identical, so take your pick because it's six of one and half-a-dozen of the other. In the near future, I will chip in $50 toward this men's domestic violence shelter. Then I will turn again to my own way of helping men -- by savaging feminism with words and encouraging a culture of counter-feminist mockery that will force feminism to crawl back under the nearest convenient rock.
