People Don’t Understand The Men’s Rights Movement

Men’s Rights Movement

A group similar to the Nazis, according to some feminists, The MRA’s are often victims of assault, whether it’s physical, verbal or online, every gathering of their members are protested aggressively by feminists, who label them as sexist. misogynistic bigots who think that women deserve rape and women are men’s property. Now, is that true? No, you idiot. That is what they’ve been labeled as by feminists, ask anyone what the Men’s Rights Movement is about and they’ll say some rant by a misinformed feminist they read on a Facebook post. I’ve asked people this question and they say the same thing, sexist liars who hate women. However, some of them have admitted that MRA’s have good ideas and are well informed. How can you call a movement who raise good arguments and have good ideas on issues like gender inequality ‘misogynistic’? Wouldn’t that make you a misogynist for admitting that? Really, MRA’s make very good arguments and are very intellectual when it comes to discussion, but suffer from actual sexists who claim to be an MRA. People get mad when a radical feminist says something like “Every man should die” and that is seen as what every feminist believes, so why doesn’t that apply to this movement? That is a massive double standard that is endorsed because no one wants to listen to the MRA’s or their arguments.

Also, a misogynist is someone who hates women just because they are women, like a racist is someone who hates someone based solely on their race. But the MRA’s are seen as being self-centered and only caring about men and men’s issues. Where is the hatred for women? I don’t know if you realize this but most men like women, a lot actually, that’s why they date them, marry them and have families with them and guess what? MRA’s do like women. Just because you disagree with someone or some some group or are more concerned about you then someone else, doesn’t mean you hate them. If I don’t give money to a charity because I need that money to buy food, doesn’t mean I hate that charity. Another argument about MRA’s being misogynists is that they attack female privilege while ignoring male privilege. By what you’ve just said, feminists are just as bad as they attack male privilege while ignoring their own. But they want equality, right? Then they’ll say that women don’t have privilege, then I’ll say that women always get custody of children during divorces, get rape and sexual assault accusations taken seriously and women get 63% less prison time then a man for the exact same crime. Then they’ll either ignore you or admit that is privilege but say it’s not as bad as male privilege, which is such a ridiculous argument because you say there is no privilege then say they do but not as bad because they “rule the world” while 99% of men will never have that level of power and the world has had female leaders.

Another argument is that MRA’s are minimizing concerns over domestic abuse, just because they that men can get abused too, by female partners. I don’t get how that’s minimizing concerns, I see it as quite the opposite as it isn’t letting female abusers get away with it. They then say that, if that is true, that it is a tiny percent and females get it much more. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen, to me, it sounds like you are minimizing the concerns about domestic abuse as you only care about the female side of it. There are studies like chapter 4 of http://www.cdc.gov/ViolencePrevention/pdf/NISVS_Report2010-a.pdf that shows the numbers of male domestic abuse victims are at roughly the same number as women in relationships, which mean its in the millions. Not such a tiny percentage now, is it? All we ever hear is the “1 in 4 women in college are sexually assaulted” nonsense which has been debunked many times. Read the report and you’ll see that the numbers of men being abused are roughly the same as women, yet there are no men’s shelters for abuse victims because their told to just man up. People say that women abusing men is extremely rare when in reality, it’s pretty even, it’s just that men being abused isn’t taken seriously by most people so no report is filed. Why aren’t feminists, who want equality, not speaking up about this? Oh right, because really, you don’t care. You wanna be the victims and never wanna lose that. You are minimizing domestic abuse by valuing women’s experiences over men.

Social Justice Is Secretly Winning

As we all know, Social Justice or SJW’s, are a disease plaguing our society and culture, infecting and manipulating it into their own twisted ‘dream world’ where everyone is equal, except “the oppressive white cis male scum” who will become the oppressed while somehow still being the oppressors. Now, it’s easy to look at Social Justice and say that it’s pathetic and transparent and is losing this so called Culture War, looking at their stupidity on their social media pages and their ability to be easy destroyed in any debate as they believe their feelings matter more than facts. On YouTube, there is channels hosted by SJW’s who always get a massive amount of dislikes compared to likes and their comments are full of people debunking every argument they say, which some results in the channel disabling comments and likes. Also on YouTube, there is compilations of SJW’s/feminists/BLM supporters getting “Rekt” as their points and arguments that they assumed were watertight as they’ve never had anyone challenge them, are easily picked apart and they are left in a silent ‘triggered’ mode. So, I forgive you for thinking they are a losing group that no one cares about.

However, the truth is that they are actually winning. Behind the stupidity and triggered, Social Justice is becoming popular in schools/colleges/universities, government and both public and private institutions. Most colleges and universities are catering to these triggered students who have been fed bias garbage by their feminist teachers in gender studies class, shaming both students and professors who don’t fit their agenda. And increasing pressure from these idiots on companies are forcing them to comply with their cult of diversity. I have experienced this first hand, getting punched several times by a group of protesters after I said “Intelligence is more important than diversity.”
And the thing that’s concerning is, no one is challenging it on this level. It’s one thing to call out these SJW YouTubers for the lies and misinformation, but we do that while it takes over our education and employment. Even certain governments like Canada are signing in new laws that forbid you from doing things like criticise Islam or not calling someone by some made up pronoun they found on Tumblr. Our society is slowly what George Orwell wrote about in his book 1984.

The thing that makes me the most angry is that these SJW’s have convinced people who decide who gets into university or people who give you careers and jobs, that they have a unconscious bias towards straight white men and must overcome that bias by hiring more women, gays/lesbians, trans, black and asians etc. Now, on paper this sounds good, just one thing, White people are usually that vast majority in these countries like the UK, USA, Canada and Australia so naturally, the people who are more qualified are statistically gonna be white people since they are 70-80% of the population. This means universities, companies and corporations are taking people who aren’t the best for the job because they want a more diverse group. An example of this was the student who got into university by writing “#BLM” one hundred times on his reference letter, they didn’t care about his grades or education, just that he would fit in with their agenda.

This is spreading throughout the public service and industries. A study has shown that one third or 33% of people being employed are not the best suited for the job. Now, these companies have combated this by saying that the more qualified white males only have “perceived merit” and they are not actually better for the job because that’s how you overcome your bias. This does not just make me mad, it’s very dangerous. Will they be hiring police officers, paramedics and pilots who aren’t fully qualified but their skin is black or they have a vagina so that automatically makes them the best pick? Would you trust a doctor who was hired just because he was black? This is outrageous and dangerous and people need to speak up against this and stop focusing on diversity and hire the people who are the best for the job, no matter what their skin or gender is.

My Opinion On Abortion

This is without a doubt, one of the most controversial subject to discuss. Half of the people think it’s a woman’s right, the other half think its bloody murder. This subject itself to me, is a sensitive topic as I am kinda split down the middle.

I am pro-choice.

I believe abortions should be available, however, not only do I not agree by the way feminists want it normalized, I understand where most pro-life people are coming from. I also think it should only be allowed under certain circumstances, like rape, underage like school girls, the baby has a high chance of dying mere hours after birth or could kill the mother. The main reason I think it should be allowed is that women throughout history have died from getting illegal and dangerous abortions, so a safe alternative should be available. That’s me generalizing a lot of my points so I’ll get a bit more specific.

I believe the fetus is alive after 20-21 weeks, which is when it can survive outside the mother’s womb. After that, its called a ‘partial birth abortion’ as the baby is pulled out in pieces. That I don’t agree with, once you go beyond 20 weeks, you cannot abort it. Now, some feminist could say “Partial birth abortions aren’t a thing!” Except sweetie, they are. They have been a thing for many years. Admittedly, it was made illegal in 2003 but that law was fought by many feminists, and Hilary Clinton. Today, most feminists and pro-choice people would say that was a horrible thing, so they say it isn’t a thing, forgetting that they defended it after it was banned.

Now, they will say that they don’t defend late term abortions but rebuttal that by saying that only 1.3% of abortions are late term, and they are because the baby could have a fatal birth defect or serious risk to the mother’s life. Now, I did defend that but lets look at what a birth defect is. I said that as it may die days or hours after birth, but under the law, a birth defect is a disability. It doesn’t cause a risk to the mother’s life, at all. They just don’t wanna go through having a disabled child to they choose to abort it. That, I do not accept. According to studies, 90% of down syndrome babies in America are aborted. In the UK, 53% of prenatally diagnosed fetuses/babies are aborted. Half of them are aborted because they may have a birth defect. Will they die after being born? No. Would the birth kill the mother? No. So it should be illegal.

Now, what if the baby is a serious risk to the mother’s life? That is a decent point, if they both will die, why not save one? That is something I agree with as a mother shouldn’t have to die to have a baby. Some would do that and some would not. However, what is a serious risk to the mother? To me, its that they will die. But, abortion laws don’t include anything about the mother’s life, only their health. Health is different from life as anything can be filed under health, it can be small things like stress or anxiety or loss of appetite, they could even fake a health risk to get an abortion. That shouldn’t be allowed. Also, lets look at that number of late-term abortions, 1.3%. That is still 13,000 per year, 350+ per day. Doesn’t seem like such a small number now.

Anyway, thats my position. I know its unpopular but it is mine.

My Rant On Anita Sarkeesian

Anita Sarkeesian

One of the most annoying and factually incorrect feminists on the Internet, which is a hard list to crack. The reason why? Her various attacks against the video game industry and gaming as a whole. This annoys me significantly as I love video games, probably my favorite hobby, next to “shoving my opinions down people’s throats”. This isn’t a pointless rant, this is something far more personal to me because of my love for video games. I’m usually able to ignore feminists but when they go after this, I need to say something. Get comfortable, this is gonna be a long one. Not only is it a great hobby that can help you relax at the end of a hard day, I think it is a really important and growing art form, along with movies and TV shows. The visuals, voice acting, storyline, and the gameplay itself can be an amazing experience that can go so much further than we originally thought. Great games such as Bioshock, Bloodbourne and The Last Of Us created absolute beauty in their games and it was an honor to play them. So why would Anita Sarkeesian attack this? Simple.

Sexism.

In 2012, Anita started a YouTube channel called Feminist Frequency and dedicated a large part of it to criticizing video games, a part called Tropes vs Women. I decided to watch a few of these last year and they angered me. They were heavily biased and inaccurate attacks on games where she edited out facts or just simply ignore them. I’m not sure if she deliberately does so it looks like the hundreds of thousands she raised for this show didn’t get to waste or is just really uninformed and has a very narrow view of the video game industry. Now, people attacking video games isn’t new, they’ve been blamed for mass shootings to bad language and every now and again, some feminist would go after a particular video game which they found offensive. But, Anita is different. She dedicates all her time on her show to constantly attack gaming that she is a self-proclaimed ‘expert on sexism in video games’, despite lying to her audience, who gave her their money to start the show, because she said she was always a long time fan of video games and needed the money to play for the consoles and games, when in reality, she had barely, if ever, played games before. The saddest thing is that her attacks have been seen so much that mainstream news outlets are giving her platforms to spew her misinformation in the form of talk show appearances and even a seat at the United Nations. Online news outlets make dozens of articles about her, praising her as some fearless feminist savior for calling out gaming and saying things like “The Gaming Industry’s Biggest Threat has only just gotten started.” I didn’t know fearless people turned off comments and likes on their videos to not hear any criticism.

Before I even did much research into her, I could see that Anita has an ideology view of what sexism is. She has tweeted that women cannot be sexist against men because sexism is prejudice and power and as men are the dominate gender, women cannot be sexist towards them. Of course, this is completely false. If you attack someone based on their sex or favor a particular sex over the other is sexist, no matter who does it. Don’t believe me, simply switch the genders and see if women can’t be sexist. I think Anita says this as a made up defense if someone calls her out for her bias and possible sexism. This defense isn’t based on facts or reality, it’s based on her ideology.

Another example of her ideology is that she believes that every system in the world is sexist, racist and homophobic and someone like her needs to point it all out. You pretty much name something to her and she’ll find some way to make it sexist. She thinks that princesses are part of a deeply authoritarian monarchy, ignoring that most girls choose to wear the princesses outfits. She’s called anime a sexist, disgusting and misogynistic art form that promotes rape culture, catering to perverts and losers. She has even blamed mass shootings on patriarchy. Her entire view of the world is filtered through this lens of sexism, changing everything she sees.

When it comes to video games, her bias is so transparent, it’s almost cringey. What she says is pretty much feminist propaganda and has had no real research involved in it. She made a video attacking game developers for their ass designs, saying that male characters have their butts almost covered while the females are exaggerated for sexual effect. However, if you had done research, you could have found at least a couple dozen examples of that with male characters. Or her video on The Witcher 3, one of my personal favorite games, which had many strong female characters and was even praised by certain feminists for that, not Anita though. In fact, she saw it as sexist as all the other games she’s covered, saying it included all the sexist stereotypes of female characters. Her examples? When you play as Ciri, a female character, the enemies call you gendered insults. That’s it. Also, she says that the insults thrown at the main character, who is male, don’t matter. Or Just Cause 2, where she attacked it for your ability to shoot female strippers but ignores that you can also shoot male strippers. Hey Anita, #StripperLivesMatter, not just women’s. She even goes after games for petty reasons like the way female characters sit in Destiny and the female characters in Saint’s Row 3 had too much sway in their hips and Mass Effect for the nickname the fans gave the female version of Captain Shepard, “FemShep”. I mean, who cares?

Now, sometimes she has been called out for her lies. Like her attack on the game Bayonetta, saying everything about it was made to serve the sexual pleasure of the male gamer, then being told that it was developed by a woman. In response to corrections like this, she now got rid of comments on her videos and blocks anyone who disagrees with her on Twitter. This just shows that she doesn’t care about actually finding the truth in what she says, as long as she can twist it into her propaganda, it’s fine by her. Male gamers are more likely to play games with badass male characters and sexy female characters, but it’s because they are guys. Developers know what sells and they know the majority of the gaming market is male so they appeal to them with badass and sexy characters. It’s perfectly fine to be a male and have interests, same as a female. Gamers don’t care about your race, ethnicity, age or your gender, they just wanna play their games in peace. Check your facts, not your privilege.

I’m not the only one who thinks Anita is spewing out bias propaganda, in fact many other YouTuber’s, including feminist ones for her lying and misinformation. One of these YouTubers is the biochemist, Dr. Phil Mason AKA Thunderf00t on YouTube found Anita and her channel to be so incorrect that he made a video about her. He said that humans are part of a sexually dimorphic species, a species that has significant differences between males and females. This is the reason why men and women compete in sporting events like the Olympics, that have been divided by gender, because men and women are physically different. In fact, on average, men’s upper body strength is between 40-50% stronger then women’s and their lower body strength is 20-30% more stronger. This is why men are seen as the stronger sex, because men are stronger and more powerful while women are more flexible and faster. However, to Anita, this is a “Deeply ingrained socially constructed myth” and “Completely false”, yet provides no studies or anything in her sources in the video’s description, but uses it as an attack against the trope that women are usually damsels in distress in video games.

I know that I could go on and on about how Anita is biased and a liar, but that’s been done. Dozens of videos have been made on her, debunking pretty much every video she makes. I wanna do something a bit different. Anita once said this;
“So why does any of this matter? What’s the harm in sexually objectifying women? Well, the negative impacts of sexual objectification have been studied extensively over the years and exposure to these tropes could reinforce the idea that women are sexual objects, created for a man’s pleasure.”
This is a pretty strong statement as she is basically saying that sexism in games or really, sexism in any kind of media, leads to sexism in real life. Now, I do admit that games, films and TV shows do have a lot of sexualized women and in games with this, violence against them is allowed like in GTA V. If you watch the Tropes vs Women series, you’d think it’s everywhere, almost like we are in a sexist epidemic with games thinking women’s only use is sex. However, if you are a real gamer, you know this is entirely untrue. As the games, she uses these examples are usually repeated, like Hitman: Absolution is shown six times throughout the series. This asks a question, if all she shows is examples of sexism in games but shows the same games over and over, how many games does she find sexist?

From 2012, the year Feminist Frequency started, to October 2016. Anita called out 99 games for sexist tropes. However, this goes through those four years of games being released, you’ll see that 2,716 games were created and released in this time frame. 99 out of 2,716 is just over 3%, doesn’t seem like too much of an epidemic now. Also, that list of 99 contain games she only finds one or two things wrong with a female character only being the main character’s girlfriend and having no real story behind her. The games that she thinks are straight up sexist and misogynistic adds up to 46, less than 2% of the 2,716 games released. Now, I know what your thinking;
“But she can’t possibly play every single game released on every platform, aren’t you being unfair.”
Well, no actually. I’m not asking her to play every single game ever made before saying her argument, plus I know she’d probably find most of the 2,716 games sexist, I’m just saying that the entire gaming industry is full of sexism based off 99 out of 2,716 games is just wrong. She’s painting the entire industry with one brush and lies to her audience to believe that she’s right. And if you do think any of those 46 or 99 games problematic, then you can play any of the other thousands available. Games are very inclusive, something for everyone. Anita is right about one thing. Those 46 games are mostly played by hardcore group of dedicated gamers who are mostly men. But Anita uses this as ‘evidence’ that sexism between gamers is common because of these games and they don’t even know it, saying that it effects them without them even knowing it. Bullshit.

Gamers, however, are used to being branded as horrible people. For years, the industry has been attacked by religious people for inciting the devil and by conservatives for causing violence like mass shootings. One of the most infamous people for this was lawyer Jack Thompson, who for years made the claim that violence in video games made the gamer violent in return, calling them ‘Murder Simulators’. He filed many multi-million dollar lawsuits against video game publishers for inciting violence. In 2007, he tried to tie a mass shooting at Virgina Tech to the video game Counter Strike and threatened to sure Bill Gates. However, these lawsuits ended in the publisher’s favor and Thompson lost his job over them due to studies that proved video games actually reduce stress and violent behavior and showed that as video games became more popular, violence with teens has been doing down steadily and exposed his biased studies that weren’t conducted correctly.

So if people blamed video games for violence but were easily proven wrong, what’s the difference with the sexism allegations? My answer is nothing. Anita is using the same tactics people like Jack Thompson used, viewing games from a narrow viewpoint, lying about games or taking certain scenes out of context and only showing a fraction of the amount of games in their examples, the getting all the media to side with them, leaving the ‘violent and sexist’ gamers to defend themselves. Anita always say that studies have proven the link with video games and sexism, but never shows them in her provided links. So I decided to look myself on her website for these studies and all I found was articles and blog posts, no actual scientific studies. I decided to research this myself and the closest I got was that dedicated gamers are more likely to find sexist jokes funny. So gamers have a sense of humor? These feminists need to play more PS4. What we need is a large study to look into the possibility of sexism in the game industry, just like what was done with the violence in video games.

Oh, wait. There has been one already.

It was conducted in 2011, a year before Feminist Frequency started and covered over 800 gamers for over 3 years and was independently funded. It was based on the theory that long term exposer to video games can change your view of the world. The conclusion found no link between sexism behavior and video games, absolutely none, just like with the study of video game violence. Does Anita know this? I think she does but she doesn’t want you to know it as it makes all her videos pointless and a waste of time and money.

In conclusion, Anita Sarkeesian is no different from the radical Christians who attack video games for violence, never ending with there constant need to be heard despite the evidence not being on their side. She has an extremely narrow minded view of gamers in general and lies and twists facts to support her feminist propaganda. She also lied for donations, saying she was an expert on sexism in video games and has played games since she was a child despite there being video evidence of her saying she had never played them before and hated the idea behind them, which would explain her endless attacks on them. She should re-fund everyone she lied to in order to get the hundreds of thousands to make her propaganda.
Anita needs to go away or just be ignored, to know that we’ve seen through her lies and we don’t care what she has to say. We all need to say night night to our game hating feminist.

Safe Spaces Are Ruining Universities

“If you want a safe space, go see a therapist.” – Professor Jordan B Peterson

For the last few years, students in both college and universities and even some schools have been demanding safe spaces, parts of the building where they can go when they are upset or ‘triggered’, mostly by hurtful words said to them. This has really annoyed me because universities and colleges are meant to be preparing you for the outside world and if you aren’t taught to take a few bad words, how will you function in the workplace? Because employers won’t bother hiring you if you need to leave when you are ‘triggered’. I trained as a chef and if you fucked up, the head chef would yell and swear and berate you in front of the entire class and you had to stand there and take it because no one would hire you if you just cried and ran off.

Safe Spaces are originally supposed to be for people who have gone through genuinely traumatic experiences like soldiers with PTSD or rape victims. So these students claim to have PTSD, despite having no doctor diagnose them and who claim to be raped when in fact they just had consensual sex but later on regretted it. They fake these events so they can have these safe spaces because they can’t handle when someone challenges them intellectually. My most favorite teachers have been the most strictest, mostly my history teacher Mr. Garrison. He was a nice guy who joked a bit with us but he was also strict and firm, challenging everything we knew about history and I learned so much from him.

Universities should be the most radically unsafe space ever. It’s a place where you should be ripped apart intellectually and put back together, every little thing should be challenged. It’s like taking apart a house and rebuilding it to be a much better home. But these SJW’s and their safe spaces are just burning that house to the ground. It’s avoiding the challenge of life and hiding it your echo chamber.

It’s a waste of space.

Social Justice and Communism: Why It’s Dangerous.

When I was younger, about 15-16, I used to think capitalism was an awful system that made the rich richer and the poor poorer. I surrounded myself with people who agreed with me and I even began thinking a communist government would be a far better improvement. God, I was dumb. When I eventually read more into capitalism and communism, I finally saw why communism was a terrible system that has a history of monumental failures that resulted in millions dead and why capitalism is the best system for our society. However, the people who I was friends with disagreed with me, saying I had been brainwashed despite showing them the evidence that changed my mind. They insisted that communism is the best way forward and all past history of it didn’t count because it was done incorrectly and they wouldn’t stop until this current system was eradicated. Their arguments soon turned to insults and I was pretty much shunned by me.

This is one of the reasons why I see these social justice warriors kinda worry me because most of them are believers in socialism and communism when it comes to their ‘perfect’ world, which is why they claim this society is oppressive and patriarchal because it doesn’t comply with their utopia. Now, we all have our vision of a perfect world, for me it’s with no Kim Kardashian but we all know that your idea of a utopia could be someone’s hell, so no one tries to do that. So, if you dare attempt to create one, you are dangerous. Utopians are the most dangerous people and have been for the last 100 years, that is a fact. I’m not saying that capitalism or western society is perfect, there is issues with it and there always will be but compared to a vast majority of other societies, this is the best one, that’s why so many people dream of coming here. Now, you can argue and say that its corrupt and evil but that’s only in comparison to your utopia but if your utopia was actually realized and took place, people would be on the streets starving to death, we already know this because its happened dozens of times, most of which involve communism.

Communism was the result of someone’s utopia which is why it has failed in every society that its been implemented in. Now, I know people will say something stupid like; “What happens in Soviet Russia wasn’t real communism.” Firstly, yes it was, but what they mean by that is that either they or someone they know could do it better. They think people like Stalin didn’t follow the correct communist doctrine and abused it to gain as much control as he could. But they would follow it, they would be a kind dictator who wouldn’t abuse their power to have full control over everything and deliver on this utopia communism promised. If you think that, firstly, there is something wrong with you. Almost EVERY dictator throughout history has said everything you said and yet still, after 20 or so years, they have abused their power and killed anyone who opposed that. And even if you were some sort of good hearted saint who truly wanted to make society better, the next people in your revolutionary string, like Stalin, would stab you in your sleep and gain that control from you and that would be the end of that.

Communism is a dangerous system that would never work even if you try. Many have tried and they’ve all failed and descended into an oppressive dictatorship, no matter who you put in charge of that and millions have died from these failures. Stop trying to make a heavily flawed system work and let it die.
