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.
Do men get a rough deal?
National Times, January 11, 2011
Seems a bit rich these days to claim there is a “glass ceiling” for female jobs. Load of cobblers, isn't it? I mean, Australia has a female Prime Minister and a female Governor-General.
Has there really been discrimination over the years against mothers who work -- or against women without children?
The National Council of Women thinks so and no surprise there. I recently chatted with Victorian leader Jennie Rawther who pointed out that, among other things, women at the end of World War 1 had to give up their jobs to returning servicemen -- even though their husbands may have been killed in combat. There was no widow’s pension, nor child support.
Sounds tough but Age reader Steve Hills of Rosebud is not impressed. “There is overwhelming evidence that female health, safety and female lives were held as more valuable than men’s lives,” he says. “Men’s lives were routinely regarded as disposable. The view that women alone were discriminated against is an ignorant one.”
According to Hills, “men have generally protected women but when women share all the power, will they look after men? No. They never have. Is there any such thing as a widower’s pension? Doesn’t exist. Never did.”
Hills is not alone in his jaundiced view of an anti-male world.
Here’s author Michael Flood:
Fathers’ rights groups overlap with men’s rights groups and both represent an organised backlash to feminism. These groups consider that males have been displaced from the labour market, schools and universities, deprived of their role as fathers, and are now regarded only as “gene pool and cash machine”
On the men’s rights website mensactivism.org the list of alleged discrimination is a long one.
Women-only discounts for car rental in New Zealand -- a Canadian woman who killed her defacto with a knife but walked free from court -- a British study (by a woman) that finds women actually do like staying home while men pay the bills:
The idea that women dislike being financially dependent on men is a myth, with more choosing to “marry up” now than did so in the 1940s, according to Dr Catherine Hakim from the London School of Economics.
After decades of gender equality campaigning many women now find it hard to admit that they want to be a housewife more than they want a successful career of their own, she said.
Says Steve Hills: “Patently women have been protected and paid for -- and paid respect due to their sex -- far more than men.”
Is he right?
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"?
