What is ‘misandry’ and what is ‘anti-misandry’?
Misandry is the hatred of males as a sex, as opposed to misogyny, the hatred of women; or misanthropy, hatred of the human species. Misandry comes from misos (Greek μῖσος, “hatred” + andr-ia (Greek anér-andros, “man”. Those holding misandric beliefs can be of either sex. Thus it holds to common sense that Anti Misandry is to work toward removing misandry from our culture.
Can you give me some demonstrations of misandry? Sure. Have a look at the second-wave feminist view of men for an example. Valerie Solanas, the radical feminist who shot Andy Warhol in 1968, provides a famous example of misandry in her self-published SCUM Manifesto. In case you’re wondering, SCUM is an acronym for ‘Society for Cutting Up Men’, practically a call for gendercide, the culling of men. Quite literally, Solanas expressed her desire to “institute complete automation and destroy the male sex.”
Wow, this is pretty bad stuff – what can I do about misandry? For one thing, you can stop accepting it as a ‘way of life’. Once upon a time, respect was a two-way street. These days it is more a one-way street where men are demanded to be respectful to women (even those who do not earn, or even try to earn it) while simultaneously disrespect of men is expected, condoned, perpetuated and even taught. You can make a difference by refusing to live this way.
Did you just say misandry is ‘taught’? Yes, that’s right! The next time you switch on the television, count how many programmes have the token ‘stupid boyfriend’ or ‘abusive husband’ or ‘paedophilic father’ figure. Switch over to a children’s channel / time window and watch how many cartoons or programmes reflect ‘silly daddy’ characters or ‘bullying big brother’. Don’t forget, of course, nearly all the women in these same programmes will be smart, sexy, sassy and full of beans, capable of juggling a career lifestyle with children, a husband and a social circle – let’s not forget that she’s undoubtedly a wonderful cook and always remembers everybody’s birthdays. If these images are being constantly spread out over our airwaves, what does that tell our children who are growing up watching & learning daily, hourly, that men are just so stupid, abusive and … well, useless?
So is it more feminism’s fault, or the media’s fault? A lot of both, but neither would be able to indoctrinate our youth without the support of…. the government.
Ahh – yes. The government. Tell me about their involvement? Well, they positively support and enforce feminist programmes of anti-male bias.
Uh? Think ‘Violence Against Women Act‘ – notice something wrong in that? Notice how violence against men or children is not mentioned? VAWA implies, through it’s title alone, that men are the primary perpetrators of violence – despite 30 years of research and in excess of 130 scientific studies proving that intimate partner violence is roughly mutual. Time and time again, the resultssay the same “men and women are equally violent towards one another”. And yet, when feminists demand preferential treatment or additional ‘rights’, the government promptly delivers, like a good boy.
