Oct 1 is Stop Violence Against Men Day
Last month, I got an immediate wall of pushback from a bunch of feminists and other left-wing types on Twitter. They evidently thought that violence against men was an okay thing, and nothing to get fussed about. This attitude is typical of feminsts and their allies, and the proof keeps pouring in.
Stop Violence Against Men.
I salute Angry Harry, whose idea this project originally was. Here is the twitter hashtag #stopviolenceagainstmen:
I would like to reiterate the commitment of our community to non-violent methods of effecting social change. If Malcolm X was correct in stating that "there is no such thing as a non-violent revolution", then let those who oppose us be the violent ones, and let their violence be THEIR undoing - not ours.
We non-feminists are not the violent ones in this struggle. Admittedly we are not pacifists, and we will defend ourselves, but our self-defense will take a physical form only if actions against us become sanguinary or life-threatening. Apart from that, we will stand up to feminist bullying most vociferously, meaning that we will not shrink from the use of harsh analysis and rude language against feminist aggression. But come what may, let us never forget that we non-feminists are "punching up" against a primary aggressor who is on top, and even if we are in a lower position in terms of power, we do occupy the moral high ground.
Stop violence against men.
And while we're at it, stop feminist aggression against the rest of the world. For to oppose feminism on behalf of humanity, and to stand up for men, are two sides of the identical struggle and cannot be understood in isolation from each other.
