    Newsletter Feb-Mar 2011b

    Anti-Misandry.com Newsletter Issue 2, Feb/March 2011 Read and Rejoice at your good fortune at being an MRA. Someone has to do it. UPDATE: It has been deemed essential to give a direct link to this article on posted by Rohara, with regards Mary Kellett's witch-hunt. Please drop by, read it, comment and most importantly - ACT. Do something. Just thinking about doing something won't really do anything, aside from waste 10 minutes of everyone's time - so save time and DO something! This was a public service announcement brought to you by Marx. Warcraft? So, first issue went out on time and brief. A good effort by Marx to get it out to 1300 members, old and new, and a good effort from Mr Ed for putting the inaugural edition together. Unfortunately events conspired to delay this second edition which was due for February so we have made it ‘more’ to include March. Enjoy! Now, where have YOU got to with your New Year Resolutions? More efforts to counter misandry? More effort into being nice to nice Women –in – General and even to not-nice ones, and to your fellow men? What have you done so far this year? How many ‘letters to the Editor’ have you sent in these past eight weeks to date? Emails to stupid company advertising departments? So far I am well along the path to have a good year. Several strongly worded epistles have smacked a recalcitrant bottom or three. I have even managed to maintain resolve in the pyromania department, not setting fire to a feminist in a while, but being content to just push them in a ditch. (Just Joking ! Maybe). Male feminists as well as female. Poor deluded and now wet and leaf-covered. In fact, I am trying to be very calm and focused, explaining things in a rational manner, deploying evidence from Feckless’ Warcraft File (a pointer to newbies ) and generally being patient. I hope you all are too, going along with our new, improved AM philosophy with added bio-discern-ability plus. Where are the comments and suggestions about this newsletter initiative? Send YOUR suggestions and inclusions to: editor@antimisandry.com Recognition and acknowledgement are essential to mental and spiritual, emotional and physical health. So it is with pleasure that I highlight a thread started by Haute Macabre, an intriguing cyber-name for a young women who appears to be a pleasant girl with some sensitivity and understanding. http://antimisandry.com/chit-chat-main/thank-you-36641.html “I especially want to thank the fathers here. My father was a very important figure in my life and a good man like the fathers here,...”(HM) Go and add your view. And perhaps your thanks. I count her as one of my father’s daughters. Grateful thanks and admiration go to Mike T for his hard and harrowing work in New Zealand’s earthquake. Mike is always on hand in his country to give unstinting hard work. Internationally we are again admiring of Hannah Banana (honorary Queenslander – “banana-bender”) for going off to Japan to help with their Tsunami. MRAs are generous. Those of us who are less able to be so personally generous nevertheless try our best in our ways. But Mike and Hannah show a wonderful spirit which gives the lie to accusations that MRAs are bad people. And special mention is needed for Lester Burnham ( Paul Elam on his own site) whose new webradio program, AVfM is going well and making an impact. You can find his radio show on AM’s Front Page. What we are up against. 1: (LINK) “However, the woman eventually walked off with the parting shot ''yeah, well forget seeing your kids again''. I was momentarily stunned both by her callousness and her presumption, but believe it or not, it gets worse. The man, understandably goes ballistic at this, he gets right up in her face and starts shouting something like ''how dare you try and use my kids against me, you make me sick'', at which point he is set upon by security and physically ejected from the premesis”. (TOO) 2: (LINK) “The words in the old form were ‘mother’ and ‘father,’” said Brenda Sprague, deputy assistant Secretary of State for Passport Services. "They are now ‘parent one’ and ‘parent two.’" A statement on the State Department website noted: “These improvements are being made to provide a gender neutral description of a child’s parents and in recognition of different types of families.” 3: (LINK) But a second complaint lodged by a female staff member claims the memo was dangerous because it was clearly common sense to make it normal practice for males to handle violent patients. The complaint argues that the Anti-Discrimination Act allowed an exemption to keep staff safe under workplace health and safety. "The number of vicious assaults has increased due to the negligence of management and senior medical staff to provide a safe working environment," the complaint reads. (P. Cough, splutter !! ..... How is a 'vicious assault' 'safer' for a man?? Answers on a Post Card to Darling Downs-West Moreton Health Services District Mental Health Executive Director Ms Wossname)) Activism Here is something that AM members can DO, that can make a difference or at least a cumulative impact. Emailing to a ‘Target’ that needs our ‘care and attention’. Just think what 1300 emails might do. Or 100. 1. From Prassoon, for all members: Prassoon writes: - Amnesty International is into Demand Dignity campaign primarily intended to bash men. I have expressed my concerns and request for comments over a month ago, but haven't heard from them yet. My voice is too feeble to be heard. I request all of you to join this campaign to make it a bigger voice together. Please print this out and post it (hardcopy) to the address mentioned  Change the letter as you wish but keep it polite. http://prassoon.files.wordpress.com/...ry_amnesty.doc  (Also posted in the thread). NB:- Write "Amnesty should STOP MISANDRY" on the envelope so that few more people out there can see what that letter is all about. Email: NY office -   aimember@aiusa.org 2. From Douglas, for UK members: Douglas writes:  “In the Rights Of Man, an instance of Parliamentary misandry was highlighted. This is such a clear and obvious case of discrimination that it is an ideal issue to being to the notice of your local MP. I am including the text of an e-mail I sent to my local MP, (see thread link above) which follows my usual 'complaint' format of background, issue, action required. If you want to use it for your own letter, word-for-word or amended as you see fit, please do. You can find your local MP on the Parliament web site and with a few more clicks, you can usually get to an e-mail address” Not all ‘activism’ is well received. A thread from a ‘Newbie’, The Possible Human, tells of his mum’s efforts to correct imbalance.... "My Mom decided to do something about this horrible treatment of boys. She started a mentor program after school at the local library. She brought in positive male role models for the boys to learn from. Scientists, Engineers, Doctors, and even a Dentist. This mentor program flew under the radar from the school system because it was done off school property and on Moms’ own time. The program was a hit; the boys gained confidence and began to blossom into being young men." Follow the link to see what the Feminists did. Sheer wickedness. Andanotherthing....If you are of a mind to send items to your local newspaper, look at this : http://antimisandry.com/general-news/abuse-industry-growth-36699.html And send it to a local newspaper journalist What this newsletter needs of course is a dedicated  emailing activity/organising/targeting Editor, with all Powers and Privileges as appropriate to we lowly gofers. Any volunteers? Blogs The AM site hosts blogs. I know some here much prefer to just make comments, but some others are very active in putting their points of view, ideas, disclosures, activities, as well as comments. We have good writers here. Intelligent people.  Knowledgeable people. Some who need to practice their writing skills in-front of an encouraging readership. Do YOU read their blogs and offer encouragement? Should YOU have a blog? Why not? Don’t get bogged-down, get blogged-up. We want to hear what you have to say, that comes from YOUR initiative. Try looking at this from Popadibs: “The true beauty of feminism is that in all of its ugliness, it reveals its true nature, and the more that that nature is revealed the less work will be required of us to prove our cause (but there is still work to be done). The damage that feminism has done and will continue to do has done more to help our cause than our arguments could have possibly done on their own.” Pops has been with us quite a while. Good man. Others have quickly seen the benefit and send their own blog writings to this site. Have you seen this from our resident ex-feminist and practicing Viking’s Moll.?.... “This post has been coming for a while now, I will no longer promote or defend feminist ideology. I can be an egalitarian and not be a feminist, I can be sex-positive and not be a feminist, and I can be for gender liberation and not be a feminist. I don't know where this road will take me but one thing is for sure at least I know I am a sinner. Judge me, and fuck you, stop playing God; my only solace is that someday judgement will come for the wicked. "The only vice that can not be forgiven is hypocrisy." ~ William Hazlitt I cannot support an ideology that consistently props me up on some pedestal and tells me I'm empowered and yet I am a victim, fuck that. I have all the empowerment I need by being the woman I want to be and if someone has problem with it, fuck 'em. I am not disadvantaged because of teh menz, if I am disadvantaged it's because of my own choices. I am not an asexual/lesbian/heterosexual(self-loathing) man-hater nor am I a poor victim of male predators seeking to exploit/discriminate against me. I am a heterosexual woman who loves the men in her life and I happen to think men deserve the same rights given to me, and in areas where the men are unable to have the same rights/options, they should have the equivalent. Period.” Women have a tendency to like AM once they have ‘passed the test” – that is the Gauntlet. They get a hard time until they show clearly that they understand. Even then some get short shrift from out harder-nosed  members. But they can often say what men cannot say and speak to people who do not listen to men. http://antimisandry.com/blogs/lady-catherine/least-i-know-i-am-sinner-337/ Here is Alex. I've seen Divorce Court episodes where women think their husbands are treating them as servants because the men want their homes clean and dinner on the table. If you're a housewife (oh, sorry, stay-at-home wife/mother), what's wrong with that? That is your JOB! A wife is supposed to be a HELP MEET for her husband! My husband has a stressful job. Sometimes I get stressed looking after our son, but from what I know, it pales in comparison to the stress he's under. See, if he doesn't do his job, he can get fired. I'm not under that pressure. It's no problem for me to have pasta ready when he comes home from work. Wanting a clean house (even with a rambunctious five-year-old boy) and wanting something ready to eat are not unreasonable requests. The husband goes out and earns money for the family, the wife keeps the home--it's called working together as a team. Some members will put YOU on the spot and ask directly for you to help. As Travis did recently: http://antimisandry.com/blogs/travis-a-ramirez/ I was wondering folks, as I am want to do... We are all Men's Rights ACTIVISTS, no? So can we share some suggested courses of action? I've written letters to the congressman who represents the district I am told I reside in, but I'm looking for RESULTS. Any Ideas? So, did you suggest action to Travis? Ok, some think that our house individual/eccentric/’strange’ /loony members, of which we have fewer than most Discussion Boards, should not be let loose with their own blogs, but we practice ‘Diver...

    Newsletter January 2011

    Hello and welcome to 2011 (admin note: Unfortunately this hasn't been revised and bought up to date, so some content is outdated. However, we will strive to ensure future newsletters are updated as they're being drafted.) A new service from your favourite forum starts now – a Monthly Newsletter to remind you of what you are missing if you have been too busy to join in the chat. It will appear in your in-box – unless you ‘unsubscribe’ below. We will be brief here but expect to see you on the forum to give your view of this new service, favourable or not. As with the forum, we are anti-feminist, anti-misandry and pro-male. We are NOT anti-female. Our members include women and we are quite fond of them too. So in this newsletter you will not find rants against our sisters and mums, our daughters and wives (except of course when they have adopted the feminist mantras and damage to men, in which case corrective action will smiled upon). We are ‘lifting our game’ and invite you to lift along with us. Mr. Ed. .................................................. ................................. Resources Highlight in this first issue – the fabulous ongoing work of Pierce Harlan. His False Rape Society site which regularly appears on AM is a resource for us all. Toward the end of 2010 FRS put this on AM. How Did Women Become the Primary Victims of False Rape Reporting ? http://antimisandry.com/false-rape-society/how-did-women-become-primary-victims-false-rape-reporting-crime-almost-34918.html It is a fascinating and most troubling manifestation of the imaginary "rape culture" that when the crime of false reporting of rape is focused on, it is typically done so through a gynocentric lens that blinks at the harm it causes innocent men and boys. This crime is unique among all crimes on the books because virtually the entire public discourse about it is dominated by persons who insist it is not a serious public threat to its victims. Sexual assault counselors and members of what can aptly be called the feminist sexual grievance industry routinely refer to false rape claims as one of the so-called rape "myths.” ............ Read more and add your thoughtful comments. .................................................. .................. BLOGS Christian J has some smart words to set the cheeks of feminists smarting. http://antimisandry.com/australian-mens-news/w-f-b-wine-food-bonk-its-all-women-today-demand-34916.html W.F.B.: Wine, Food, Bonk, It's all women today, demand.. ....... Giselle Woodford, 28, a married mother, quit her post at HMP Onley, a Category C Prison near Rugby, in Warwickshire, three weeks ago. Today it emerged she is the fifth female officer to leave since 2004 amid allegations of having 'inappropriate relationships' with prisoners........ "Inappropriate relationships" is just another great way of saying that they were shagging the thugs in prison.. Join in with comment and visit Cj’s increasingly excellent blog where he tells it as it is. You might also note, that there are a growing number of women journos that are coming over to our way of thinking. That is to be welcomed and encouraged. But Cj reminds us of the other sort that dig-in their high heels and push the Princess double-standard. He gives us an excellent example at: http://antimisandry.com/australian-mens-news/liz-jones-women-killed-chivarly-too-hard-learn-34922.html To LIZ JONES: Women Killed Chivarly, Too Hard To Learn ? Are they finally GETTING THE F.....G MESSAGE.....HELLO.... Here is a great example from another PRIVILEGED PRINCESS failing to comprehend the fact that WOMEN KILLED IT.. Along with Cj’s good work, Honourable mentions must go to two blogs in particular that have grown like giants in 2010. Davyone’s http://www.daveyonefamilylawman.blogspot.com/ and TROM. http://therightsofman.typepad.co.uk/ Both are UK blogs. Davy is the MRA for all countries let alone seasons. Fabulous activity across National boundaries. TROM is the most ‘journalistic’ blog around with carefully crafted articles by Skimmington and our own John Kimble. AM is graced by such members. .................................................. .......... From Out of the Blue An aspect of AM is the way our members ‘trawl’ the net to find excellent articles in places few of us go. Did you read this, found by Zetamale? Add a comment to the thread. Because who cares if it’s your kid? By J. DeVoy Troubling news from Britain, America’s canary in the coalmine and a target of immense reverence from college students who lived there – in a nice part of town, with other Americans – while studying abroad. From a Spectator article arguing for the complete end of DNA paternity testing: At a stroke, the one thing that women had going for them has been taken away, the one respect in which they had the last laugh over their husbands and lovers. DNA tests are an anti-feminist appliance of science, a change in the balance of power between the sexes that we’ve hardly come to terms with. And that holds true even though many women have the economic potential to provide for their children themselves. (source.) First and foremost, let’s put the shoe on the other foot: Aren’t feminists constantly calling for tort consequences against men who make minor verbal misrepresentations to get laid? Certain women seek to denude men of their tools for getting what they want while keeping their own. Also, it seems imbalanced for feminists to deride men for using verbal and physical tactics to make themselves more appealing - "game,” writ large – while 1) they do the same thing with makeup and dating guides like The Rules, and 2) the "one respect in which they had the last laugh over their husbands and lovers” has consequences much farther reaching than waking up one morning, rolling over and realizing you were – by your own consent – pwned by some dude with a weak chin and guyliner. .............. Now I can see that some men might rather welcome an end to the old-fashioned scenario whereby they find themselves held to account for the paternity of children born to girls with whom they just happen to have had sex. You don’t say. The actor Jude Law recently found himself in just this position, and unhesitatingly and ungallantly demanded a DNA test. Reframed: Jude Law saw millions of dollars potentially flying out of his pocket to a child that possibly wasn’t his. True to the Reagan maxim, he verified what he had been told by the mother. He saved himself a life of financial hardship to support someone else’s offspring, as any rational person would do. Is the reasonableness of this decision noted? Is the fact that this is what any mother or father would counsel their son to do recognized? No, the reason Jude Law shouldn’t have tethered himself to a child that wasn’t his is shame. It was ungallant for Law to demand a paternity test. Surely he should have "manned up” and paid someone vast sums of money for being cunning enough to accuse him of being the father. Similarly, I have my own characterization for this argument: bullshit. Read more at: http://randazza.wordpress.com/2010/11/01/because-who-cares-if-its-your-kid/ Add your comments at: http://antimisandry.com/marriage-divorce-children-choice-men/feminists-who-cares-if-its-your-kid-34838.html .................................................. ................................. Activism. As a forum, we tend to talk about what others have done and sometimes miss the opportunity to get behind the activists. James Williams is an activist in Portsmouth, UK. His radio show recently featured a long segment ‘radio-fying’ some of the work of Man, Woman, Myth. Listen here. http://www.expressfm.com/ But don’t just listen. Tell the radio station how good it was. ‘Other’ media that MRAs try to use often need a lot of convincing, and nothing is more convincing to a radio station than expressions of support for their programs. Given that they may well do MORE for us. So, from each month forward we will suggest a recent activity and ask YOU to send an email. We will even suggest what you might say. And newspaper journos should not get away with publishing rubbish about men in general or individual men without getting a load of manure – politely – spread on them. Jerry Swanson did this as an example for us all: http://antimisandry.com/discrimination-sexist-double-standards/canadian-mra-responds-misandric-journo-34932.html .................................................. .............................. Members’ News. Apropos the opening comment about being fond of our female members, it is a pleasure to start the year with a reminder that our own girly Hannah Banana got married to her Doctor chap who she met while doing her thing for the survivors of the Haiti Earthquake. Congratulations Hannah, Honey. BE good to your man. He is our brother. .................................................. .................................................. .... General Site News: As some may have noticed, parts of AM have closed off while others have opened. Please respect this by not posting content in wrong sections. Please note this is our first News Letter and is only a brief outline of what we have planned for the future of this. We are looking for contributors and ideas, so please feel free to register your interest or suggestions at the following location: Changing Gears Thread. http://antimisandry.com/miscellaneous-chat/changing-gears-35583.html#post238222 -------- That’s it for now. Not one rude word was used in making this newsletter. Don’t forget to drop a line for Mr Ed on the forum at the email – (address-tba)@antimisandry.com ...

So can we share some suggested courses of action? I've written letters to the congressman who represents the district I am told I reside in, but I'm looking for RESULTS. Any Ideas? So, did you suggest action to Travis? Ok, some think that our house individual/eccentric/’strange’ /loony members, of which we have fewer than most Discussion Boards, should not be let loose with their own blogs, but we practice ‘Diver...

  • Newsletter January 2011
    Marx
    Hello and welcome to 2011 (admin note: Unfortunately this hasn't been revised and bought up to date, so some content is outdated. However, we will strive to ensure future newsletters are updated as they're being drafted.) A new service from your favourite forum starts now – a Monthly Newsletter to remind you of what you are missing if you have been too busy to join in the chat. It will appear in your in-box – unless you ‘unsubscribe’ below. We will be brief here but expect to see you on the forum to give your view of this new service, favourable or not. As with the forum, we are anti-feminist, anti-misandry and pro-male. We are NOT anti-female. Our members include women and we are quite fond of them too. So in this newsletter you will not find rants against our sisters and mums, our daughters and wives (except of course when they have adopted the feminist mantras and damage to men, in which case corrective action will smiled upon). We are ‘lifting our game’ and invite you to lift along with us. Mr. Ed. .................................................. ................................. Resources Highlight in this first issue – the fabulous ongoing work of Pierce Harlan. His False Rape Society site which regularly appears on AM is a resource for us all. Toward the end of 2010 FRS put this on AM. How Did Women Become the Primary Victims of False Rape Reporting ? http://antimisandry.com/false-rape-society/how-did-women-become-primary-victims-false-rape-reporting-crime-almost-34918.html It is a fascinating and most troubling manifestation of the imaginary "rape culture" that when the crime of false reporting of rape is focused on, it is typically done so through a gynocentric lens that blinks at the harm it causes innocent men and boys. This crime is unique among all crimes on the books because virtually the entire public discourse about it is dominated by persons who insist it is not a serious public threat to its victims. Sexual assault counselors and members of what can aptly be called the feminist sexual grievance industry routinely refer to false rape claims as one of the so-called rape "myths.” ............

BLOGS Christian J has some smart words to set the cheeks of feminists smarting. http://antimisandry.com/australian-mens-news/w-f-b-wine-food-bonk-its-all-women-today-demand-34916.html W.F.B.: Wine, Food, Bonk, It's all women today, demand.. ....... Giselle Woodford, 28, a married mother, quit her post at HMP Onley, a Category C Prison near Rugby, in Warwickshire, three weeks ago. Today it emerged she is the fifth female officer to leave since 2004 amid allegations of having 'inappropriate relationships' with prisoners........ "Inappropriate relationships" is just another great way of saying that they were shagging the thugs in prison.. Join in with comment and visit Cj’s increasingly excellent blog where he tells it as it is. You might also note, that there are a growing number of women journos that are coming over to our way of thinking. That is to be welcomed and encouraged. But Cj reminds us of the other sort that dig-in their high heels and push the Princess double-standard. He gives us an excellent example at: http://antimisandry.com/australian-mens-news/liz-jones-women-killed-chivarly-too-hard-learn-34922.html To LIZ JONES: Women Killed Chivarly, Too Hard To Learn ? Are they finally GETTING THE F.....G MESSAGE.....HELLO.... Here is a great example from another PRIVILEGED PRINCESS failing to comprehend the fact that WOMEN KILLED IT.. Along with Cj’s good work, Honourable mentions must go to two blogs in particular that have grown like giants in 2010. Davyone’s http://www.daveyonefamilylawman.blogspot.com/ and TROM. http://therightsofman.typepad.co.uk/ Both are UK blogs. Davy is the MRA for all countries let alone seasons. Fabulous activity across National boundaries. TROM is the most ‘journalistic’ blog around with carefully crafted articles by Skimmington and our own John Kimble. AM is graced by such members. .................................................. .......... From Out of the Blue An aspect of AM is the way our members ‘trawl’ the net to find excellent articles in places few of us go. Did you read this, found by Zetamale? Add a comment to the thread. Because who cares if it’s your kid? By J. DeVoy Troubling news from Britain, America’s canary in the coalmine and a target of immense reverence from college students who lived there – in a nice part of town, with other Americans – while studying abroad. From a Spectator article arguing for the complete end of DNA paternity testing: At a stroke, the one thing that women had going for them has been taken away, the one respect in which they had the last laugh over their husbands and lovers. DNA tests are an anti-feminist appliance of science, a change in the balance of power between the sexes that we’ve hardly come to terms with. And that holds true even though many women have the economic potential to provide for their children themselves. (source.) First and foremost, let’s put the shoe on the other foot: Aren’t feminists constantly calling for tort consequences against men who make minor verbal misrepresentations to get laid? Certain women seek to denude men of their tools for getting what they want while keeping their own. Also, it seems imbalanced for feminists to deride men for using verbal and physical tactics to make themselves more appealing - "game,” writ large – while 1) they do the same thing with makeup and dating guides like The Rules, and 2) the "one respect in which they had the last laugh over their husbands and lovers” has consequences much farther reaching than waking up one morning, rolling over and realizing you were – by your own consent – pwned by some dude with a weak chin and guyliner. .............. Now I can see that some men might rather welcome an end to the old-fashioned scenario whereby they find themselves held to account for the paternity of children born to girls with whom they just happen to have had sex. You don’t say. The actor Jude Law recently found himself in just this position, and unhesitatingly and ungallantly demanded a DNA test. Reframed: Jude Law saw millions of dollars potentially flying out of his pocket to a child that possibly wasn’t his. True to the Reagan maxim, he verified what he had been told by the mother. He saved himself a life of financial hardship to support someone else’s offspring, as any rational person would do. Is the reasonableness of this decision noted? Is the fact that this is what any mother or father would counsel their son to do recognized? No, the reason Jude Law shouldn’t have tethered himself to a child that wasn’t his is shame. It was ungallant for Law to demand a paternity test. Surely he should have "manned up” and paid someone vast sums of money for being cunning enough to accuse him of being the father. Similarly, I have my own characterization for this argument: bullshit.

Activism. As a forum, we tend to talk about what others have done and sometimes miss the opportunity to get behind the activists. James Williams is an activist in Portsmouth, UK. His radio show recently featured a long segment ‘radio-fying’ some of the work of Man, Woman, Myth. Listen here. http://www.expressfm.com/ But don’t just listen. Tell the radio station how good it was. ‘Other’ media that MRAs try to use often need a lot of convincing, and nothing is more convincing to a radio station than expressions of support for their programs. Given that they may well do MORE for us. So, from each month forward we will suggest a recent activity and ask YOU to send an email. We will even suggest what you might say. And newspaper journos should not get away with publishing rubbish about men in general or individual men without getting a load of manure – politely – spread on them. Jerry Swanson did this as an example for us all: http://antimisandry.com/discrimination-sexist-double-standards/canadian-mra-responds-misandric-journo-34932.html .................................................. .............................. Members’ News. Apropos the opening comment about being fond of our female members, it is a pleasure to start the year with a reminder that our own girly Hannah Banana got married to her Doctor chap who she met while doing her thing for the survivors of the Haiti Earthquake. Congratulations Hannah, Honey. BE good to your man. He is our brother. .................................................. .................................................. .... General Site News: As some may have noticed, parts of AM have closed off while others have opened. Please respect this by not posting content in wrong sections. Please note this is our first News Letter and is only a brief outline of what we have planned for the future of this. We are looking for contributors and ideas, so please feel free to register your interest or suggestions at the following location: Changing Gears Thread. http://antimisandry.com/miscellaneous-chat/changing-gears-35583.html#post238222 -------- That’s it for now.
