We are for gender equality of opportunity and even certain equality of outcomes but these are contrary to the objectives of the EXTREME FEMINISTS that want a gynocentric society and special privilege for females.
Really? Women bash men?
National Times, 08 March 2011
Talk about spoiling the party! Just as the 100th International Women’s Day dawns over a perfumed world Aussie professor Kim Halford has released a study on female violence.
Women wallop men just as much as men wallop women, says the prof who claims domestic violence can often be blamed on the missus getting in a pre-emptive whack first. That’s what he calls the “usual pattern”. She hits him, he hits her, now you’ve got a punch-up.
Halford – he’s a Queensland clinical psychologist – doesn’t paint a very rosy picture of marriage. Almost a quarter of the 379 couples (22 per cent) told him there had been “at least one act of low-level violence in the year leading up to and including the wedding.” (Makes you wonder why gays want to join in the nuptial free-for-all and indeed angry word-regurgitator Helen Razer sneers at the concept in a current rant).That “low-level violence”, by the way, means slapping or shoving, rather than punching.
Interesting finding, this. In the comments to my recent blog “Do men get a rough deal?” there were all sorts of wild claims (well, they sounded wild) about men being bashed by women. I mean, men are usually bigger and stronger than women, aren’t they?
Well yes. Doc Halford says man-whacking is not a clever move by the ladies because “it is usually the women who end up getting injured and feeling psychologically intimidated”. But not always. Males everywhere recoiled at the report last month about Xian Peng, the 48-year-old bloke in Sydney whose former girlfriend drugged him, tied him up then stabbed him and cut off his penis. Peng bled to death and now Jian Chen has been charged by police. Ouch.
Let’s have a look at some stats. Los Angeles police data records a doubling of female violence against men from 1987 to 1995: from 340 women arrested for violence against men (7 per cent of 1987 total) to 1262 (14.3 per cent of 1995 total). Quote: “While the number of men arrested for domestic violence increased by 1.6 between 1987 and 1995, the number of women arrested for the same reason increased nearly fourfold (by 3.7) in the same time period.”
Of course that is in the US of A where the wives have long ruled the roost. An Oregon-based site notes: “Very little is known about the actual number of men who are in a domestic relationship in which they are abused or treated violently by women. In 100 domestic violence situations approximately 40 cases involve violence by women against men. An estimated 400,000 women per year are abused or treated violently in the United States by their spouse or intimate partner. This means that roughly 300,000 to 400,000 men are treated violently by their wife or girl friend.”
In good old laid-back Oz another study in 1996-97 showed 5.7 per cent of men quizzed had been scratched or kicked or slapped or hit by their ever-loving brides – whereas 3.1 per cent of women said the same. “This remains an unacceptably high rate of domestic violence,” said the researchers. They also reported: “An important but unanticipated finding was that violence runs in couples. 54% of respondents who reported that they had been assaulted, also admitted that they had assaulted their partners.”
Some years back a bloke named Ray O'Sullivan used to wrestle on air with Melbourne radio 3AW's Paul Barber about domestic violence stats, trying to convince a disbelieving Barber that women were just as culpable. O'Sullivan, now in Berlin, fired in this email after my earlier blog:
"Here are a few stats that never seem to get aired: 75% of suicides, men, and no wonder, when you look at the following stats. 80% of homeless, men. 90% of work place deaths, men. 99.9999% or war dead and injured, men. 90% of prisoners, men. More health related deaths at an earlier age, men. Lowest gender specific government health spending, men. Most unemployed, men. lowest tertiary intakes, men. Most discriminated in family courts, men.
"Feminism was constructed, paid for and supported by multi-national corporations who believe in the idea that work gives women freedom and this is what they have been selling women for years, and you don't have to be Einstein to work out the advantages to big business, because more money earned, means more money spent, and governments getting more taxes. Yes gentlemen, we've fallen for the propaganda/spin again. But who cares, we are only male chauvinist pigs."
OK, so maybe the clergyman needs to add an extra line in that part of the wedding ceremony: "In sickness and in health... and in recovery from injury incurred by your spouse... do you take this assailant to be your lawfully wedded wife?"
Dr Phil TV Show - Men's Rights
Dr Phil mixes both the mainstream men's rights advocates and a nutcase guy looking for publicity to make men look bad to create a controversial and ridiculous show to attract an audience of mainly middle aged non-working women who watch TV in the afternoons.
Advertisers love such controversial shows aimed at women who control over 80% of household spending. The more ridiclous some person on the show is, the better the ratings. Dr Phil is the upscale Jerry Springer. These shows really insult the intelligence of women.
In the show, Dr. Phil, who is no longer registered as psychologist, admits that all of his show management are females as are 90+% of his staff.
The show does have the "Martin Luther King" of the Men's Rights Movement - Warren Farrell. It also has Cassie Jay of The Red Pill documentary fame. Jerry Cox who was falsely accused of rape and kidnapping by a woman is featured. He had the ridiculous charges dropped and successfuly sued the woman.
Biological Mothers Murder More of Their Own Children Than Do Biological Fathers
Australian Institute of Criminology statistics show there were 270 child homicide incidents in Australia from July 1989 to June 1999, involving 287 identified offenders and resulting in the deaths of 316 children under 15.
For example, the revised National Homicide Monitoring Program 2006-07 Annual Report states 11 homicides involved a biological mother and 5 involves a biological father.
The Western Australian figures shed light on who is likely to abuse children in families. Mothers are identified as the perpetrator of neglect and abuse in a total of 73% of verified cases.
Biological mothers account for about 35 per cent of all child murders, while biological fathers account for 29 per cent
BBC - The One Show on Male Victims of Domestic Violence
BBC programme 'The One Show', in which the subject of domestic violence against men is discussed.
UK - not politically correct to fund shelters for men and their children who are victims of domestic violence.
The Attorney-General commissioned a review of the practices, procedures and laws that apply in the federal family law courts in the context of family violence. The Family Courts Violence Review considered whether improvements could be made to ensure that the federal family law courts provide the best possible support to families who have experienced or are at risk of violence.

Feminist Scholars Say All Heterosexual Sex is Rape
Certain feminist "scholars", such as law professor Catharine McKinnon, equate all sexual intercourse with rape.
Of the 12 recognized categories of feminists, the "Female Supremacists" are by far the most damaging to society.
They inundate our universities with hatred of males and preach that males are inferior people. And you wonder why males don't go to university? If you were black, would you go to a university which teaches "White Supremacy"?
