OH WOW!!!

Just think - pretty soon, there will be men wasting their time and money getting PHD's in male studies instead of valid sciences like physics or computers!!!

AWESOME!!!

We'll soon have men lowered to the level that feminism lowered women to!!!!!

It looks like somebody does not get the social/ cultural/political implications of establishing a pro-male beachhead in the world of higher academia.

Oh...and there is no such thing as the "MRM". ;)

Well, I dared. What I've read so far looks interesting.

I had a question for you about an issue that's been floating around the Manosphere lately and would like to get your opinion on it.

In most feminist-dominated cultures, there seems to be a backlash underway: in Scandanavia especially after Eivand Berge and Julian Assange have been in the news. Also, these movements in Australia and Canada that you've mentioned; and some politicians are speaking out now in Britain.

My question is: do you see any signs at all of similar trend in the US? My feeling is that the US is (geopolitically speaking) the bastion and exporter of feminism. To me, it appears that feminism is actually strengthening in America; possibly a counter-offensive is underway. Others think that the backlash will come here too. What is your opinion on this?

Wrong. Instead of making more bullsh*t, they should get rid of the existing bullsh*t - i.e. get rid of women's studies.

When something is covered in crap - it is unwise to cover the rest of it up with even more crap.

The USA is a bastion of reaction. So is the rest of the Anglosphere, but the USA is the worst.

Canadian feminism is falling upon rough times due to funding cutbacks in various "women's programs". This naturally primes the atmosphere in a favorable way, from the top down.

The developments in Australia and Canada are part of an international initiative -- yet are taking hold in those particular nations first. So yes, it looks like local conditions play a role.

Something interesting to keep in mind: In the Anglosphere countries, it is pretty much "not done" to openly tag yourself as "anti-feminist", whereas in Continental Europe and other areas, people are not so bashful about that label.

What I notice about the world in general is that more and more of the grassroots or street level of society is coming around to our side. You can hear their voices clearly if you listen. You may have noticed that in almost every web locale where open commenting is permitted, feminist voices are overwhelmed by non-feminist voices. Indeed, we won the commentariat war quite some time ago.

The people loosely known as "MRAs" appear to be the shock troops who are taking the heat, yet punching a hole in enemy lines where the main forces will follow.

As for the good ol' USA: It will lag behind Canada, but when it finally mobilizes itself....look out! (And yes, the feminist establishment will be doubling down and throwing their worst at us, but this will ironically hasten their demise.)

I believe that things are gonna get interesting. Indeed, the sense of high emotional drama is palpable in the limited episodes we've seen thus far.

Likely turbulence ahead, so buckle up! ;)

No, it's a positive development. Feminists have posted themselves in academia as a strategy, and it's working. Unfortunately we can't just go up to them now and say you're full of it, shoo. They create a false reality, we have deconstruct the false reality. We need people there, in academia, who can't be shushed merely for not agreeing with the current party line.

@Crowe:

I agree that getting rid of women's studies (or "gender studies" as they are calling it more and more)would be the ideal plan.

But if you have looked into the proposals for Male Studies, it is actually designed to be something very, very different from anything which feminism has offered. Briefly, it is designed to have academic integrity as opposed to being ideologically based. So it isn't necessarily "more crap" -- although it is certainly possible this could be subverted somewhere down the road.

I like your line of thinking! :)

And I believe there are various clever ways that the necessary ideological confrontation could be brought about. There are possibilities other than Male Studies. Still, Male Studies is an excellent way to get the shoehorn thing happening.

It is designed to be something very very different.

So was Women's Studies.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Especially more so when those good intentions spring up at college campuses.

I stand by my stance on Male Studies.

I see your points - but I take them with a grain of salt and a lot of skepticism.

Attack on some level, at all fronts! I'm envisioning a new poster, or meme, or something like that, basically, stop complaining and move the toilet seat yourself, that way I won't think you're a baby. This needs to be the way to think about it. I'd never imagine going into a toilet and think, that last person did me wrong they didn't leave the seat how I like it, how utterly ridiculous, and of course "thanks ma'am, I'll pee standing up just the same". This needs to be hammered into the embarrassment that it is. Just as an example of course of one fool notion that needs simply to be rudely dispensed with by at least half the population.

btw, spurred by mention on this blog, I visited "manboobz" today and had a look around, lots of incredibly lengthy threads apparently for the purpose of sorting out which of the posters are "rape apologists", "protorapists", or of course both. Lot of good work over there going on. Thanks sad fat guy with cats for creating a place to deposit all of that. Whole thing's sort of a big electronic cat box, if you will.

Hmmm. So I reckon that the poster which says "Men's Rights are Human Rights" was the "proto-rapist" one.

(That was sarcasm.)

The way things are shaping up, it's looking like this is gonna be too easy. It's as though all we must do is lay a touch of social heat and pressure upon them, and their hidden bizarreness and delusionality bubbles directly to the surface.

In blazing colors.

For all the world to see. . .

I think feminism is collapsing in most of Europe, and even in Britain though draconian British speech laws make it less apparent there. I've theorized that many other countries, where they feel their culture threatened more keenly than we do, are beginning to equate feminism with American cultural and economic imperialism. (There's a lot of truth in that assessment, in my opinion). Once that feeling becomes widespread, feminism will be finished.

As for the US itself: I'm not sure. One reason was the one you mentioned, the US is extremely reactionary. The other is that the populace is uneducated and easily manipulated by its leadership. Still a third factor is American neo-puritanism and self-righteousness. It seems that the possibility that America could actually become even more of a gynocratic, gynocentric police-state than it already is can't be ruled out.

Either way, there's no doubt that our opponents are going to be throwing more at us very soon.

"Beachhead" is quite the proper term for the given context. I shall have to look for opportunities to use it in reference to education as well.

You reckon Ben Franklin ever thought it would come to this?

Feminists have posted themselves (or are trying to post themselves) in every clearly defined realm of human activity they can get their hands on, and it's working.

Or at any rate, until we start kicking them out.
