Where's The Men's Movement When You Need it? In
Colorado, test scores released this week show vast and increasing gaps between
boys and girls in reading and writing. ... Where's The Men's Movement
When You Need it? link now
Yes indeed. Where is the men's movement when you need it?
Well, of course, it is growing all the time. But because most of the men
involved with the movement are far too busy trying to be polite and inoffensive
towards those who walk all over them, progress does remain somewhat slower than
could otherwise be the case.
Indeed, on one of the men's forums recently, I espied a post which reflected well an attitude that is
all too common among certain sections of the movement.
Here is a line from the post that encapsulates this attitude.
I know that if the men's movement was strictly a hardline movement, we would be considered a bunch of kooks and whacko's, and dismissed as
But, as older readers will know, this is exactly what most people thought when the
feminists, the blacks and the gays started their
own hardline tactics just over three decades ago.
"Those feminists, blacks and gays are kooks and whackos!" the people said. "And
we shall dismiss them as such."
But, as we know, those kooks and whackos won!
And they won precisely because they used hardline tactics!
Try saying out loudly at work or in the street that all men are stupid. Throw
rocks at them.
People will laugh and agree with you.
Even the men!
And then try saying out loudly at work or in the street that all blacks
are stupid. Throw rocks at them. Or try saying that all women
are stupid. Throw rocks at them.
See what happens.
And then try using different categories in your sentences, like Muslims,
Jews, girls, Mexicans, Arabs, gays, lesbians and what have you.
See what happens.
Michael Moore recently wrote a best-selling book called Stupid White Men.
What do you think would have happened if he had written a book entitled
Stupid White Women, Stupid Black Women or even Stupid Black Men, eh?
Think about it.
In the UK recently, it was discovered that eight times as much money was
being spent by government on women's health than on men's health.
There was barely a whimper of protest throughout the land.
And the reason that western 'men' get walked all over in so many areas of their
lives is because, by and large, they say, and do, nothing.
They never protest. And they never demand.
They have to be the most pathetic emasculated bunch of wimps ever to have
existed on the planet.
And, regretfully, there are quite a lot of them in the men's movement.
And when you hear some of the activists saying that the men's movement would be better off
talking politely and discussing matters quietly in the corner, take my advice,
don't listen to them if you are hoping to speed up the progress of the movement.
They clearly know very little about history, about activism, about
how the real world works, and nor can they see the evidence that
front of them.
They are the walking blind.
They are the talking deaf.
They see nothing. They hear nothing. They learn nothing.
Well, of course, I am exaggerating - for effect!
Even talking about the issues and exploring them is of value; especially if
it helps to generate an interest in men's issues.
But the truth of the matter is that those forces - those organisms - that
demonise, disadvantage and discriminate against men are not going to be
having polite discussions with them.
Remember: Those organisms are not human!
Furthermore, many of the forces contained in them do not respond to reason,
to polite discussion, or even to the truth. Their aim is not to serve reason, polite discussion or the truth.
Their aim is to serve themselves.
And anyone who has watched closely the feminists and the politically correct
in action over the past three decades knows that reason, polite discussion and the
truth are values in which these people have no interest at all - unless it suits them.
They will lie, distort, deceive and cheat whenever they can get away with it
- which, unsurprisingly, is most of the time, given that hardly anyone will
protest about their various dishonest shenanigans.
They do not play 'fair'.
In the film Raiders of the Lost Ark, there is a long section wherein Harrison
Ford is having to fight off all sorts of hoodlums with his fists in order to escape
from them. And just as he appears to have won his exhausting battles with them,
a threatening baddie wearing a black 'ninja' outfit suddenly appears bearing a large sword. He
stands a few yards away facing Harrison Ford, swishing his sword all over the
place to demonstrate his fantastic martial art skills. Swish. Swish. Swish. The
sword flashes this way, that way, up and down.
How on Earth is the exhausted Harrison Ford going to fight this man with his
There is no hope!
Well, as those who saw the film know, he does not fight this man at all. He
simply produces a gun from inside his belt, and he shoots him dead. In other words, he does not fight this particular battle by the 'rules'.
His gun contains overwhelming power in comparison to the ninja's sword - no
matter how skilful the ninja might be at wielding it - and he uses it.
And this is pretty much what men's activists are up against when fighting the
feminists and the politically correct. These people do not play by the rules - logic, reason, fairness, truth etc.
They get out their guns and just mow you down, shut you out, or try to hurt and intimidate you in
some way - if they can.
"You're a racist! You're an abuser! You hate women!"
Furthermore, of course, when a 'tribe' that employs many warriors to achieve its own
self-serving aims comes up
against a tribe that employs very few warriors to do the same, guess what?
The first kind of tribe wins.
And so while it is perfectly reasonable for men's activists to engage only in
peaceful dialogue, they are completely wrong whenever they suggest that this
is the only way in which the men's movement will progress (more) quickly, and they show
themselves to be somewhat ignorant with regard both to the way in which the real
world works, and also to the way in which it has worked in the past.
And, worse, they are misleading others; and, hence, slowing down the progress
of the movement.
The evidence for the efficacy of employing 'hardline' tactics in order to
bring about political change is both overwhelming and
virtually indisputable. And those who suggest otherwise are misleading other activists, they are
undermining the very people who are doing the right things to progress the
movement (e.g. Fathers4Justice) and they are also heightening divisions within
And that's quite a long list of woes.
Indeed, even though they were all small minorities at the time, the
blacks, the feminists and the gays ended up achieving an enormous amount of
power by using 'hardline' tactics - and often very highly dishonourable
Goodness. Most people dare not nowadays even breathe a word that might offend
That's how powerful they have become.
Well. The good news is that 'men' are not a small minority.
Far from it.
So. Perhaps one can imagine just what enormous changes will come about should
more men's activists finally begin to
adopt the well tried and tested tactics of their opponents.
Those who are hostile to the men's movement would be completely and utterly
crushed in the mega-tsunami that would eventually envelop them.
And, most importantly, many of those 'up there' will realise this sooner or
later - and some of them already do.
This tsunami is coming.
There is no hope of stopping it.
Finally, if, instead of continually pleading with politicians and officials
to change their hateful polices towards men, activists simply made it clear to
them that they will do everything in their power to undermine them in all
areas of their endeavour until matters are considerably improved, they would
begin to be heard sooner rather than later.
