Huffington Post Writer Suggests Stripping Men of Voting Rights

Apr 14, 2017 Source: breitbart.com

The South African edition of left wing media site The Huffington Post has published an opinion piece accusing white men of being a retrograde force in politics and calling for the vote to be withdrawn from the racial gender group as a means to advance the “progressive cause”.

 

Writing on the potential to run down the political and social influence of “toxic white males” by withdrawing their right to the ballot, Huffington Post contributor Shelley Garland — who describes herself as an “activist and a feminist” student who is “working on ways to smash the patriarchy” —says the change only need be enacted for 20 to 30 years or so. This period would “go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world”.

 

Blaming white males for “Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year” including Brexit and the election of President Donald Trump, Garland’s apparently serious piece claimed just a couple of decades of white men being excluded from elections could see such progressive leaps forward as the collapse of Western law and capitalism, and a massive redistribution of wealth from “toxic white masculinity” through “expropriation of these various assets”.

Among the charges laid at the feet of white males by the author are the 2008 recession, and “500 years colonialism, slavery, and various aggressive wars and genocides”.

If this was about any other group it would be the end of

The extremely sexist and racist nature of the piece has been noted by many on social media. Ben Harris-Quinney, chairman of Britain’s oldest Conservative think tank The Bow Group, took to Twitter to suggest that had the piece targeted any other minority group as opposed to white males, it would “be the end” of the online publication.

White Male Privilege#1 - what WOM's won't tell you

 

Why American men may have less luck finding a job than women

 

If you’re searching for a job, the odds of finding one may depend on your gender.

Overall, occupations that are more than 80% female are projected to grow at nearly twice the rate of jobs that are at least 60% male between 2014 and 2024, according to research out this week from the jobs site Indeed and its chief economist, Jed Kolko. The site researched Bureau of Labor Statistics and found that many are jobs that are traditionally dominated by women — including occupational therapy assistants, physical therapy assistants and nurse practitioners — are growing at the fastest rate. They will grow at about a 40% rate, compared to an overall rate of 6.5% for all jobs.

In fact, all of the fastest-growing jobs for women were healthcare-related.

 

CHECK your privilege, WOM's and BFD's !

Let Serena Williams’s naked pregnancy photo shoot be the last of its kind

By Robin Givhan June 27
Tennis athlete Serena Williams announced on Snapchat that she might be pregnant on April 19. Williams is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. (Reuters)

Serena Williams is pregnant. In case anyone hadn’t heard the news, or had missed the breathless tale of how Williams won the Australian Open during the early weeks of her pregnancy, the fact is made plain on the August cover of Vanity Fair which features the tennis champion in the buff.

One hand cups her breasts and the other is positioned in the small of her back. The body posture suggests confidence, but it also captures a hint of nonchalant impatience. Come on, take the picture! Williams is wearing a waist chain, a flesh-colored thong and a single twinkling stud in her ear. That’s it.

 

The photograph, by Annie Leibovitz, is lovingly lit, elegantly framed and deeply admiring of its subject. Congratulations, Serena! And to your fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, too.

But really, it would have been fine to skip this strange celebrity ritual, this complicated stew of personal indulgence, brand tending and sociopolitical me-too-ism. Yes, pregnancy is beautiful and powerful and worthy of celebration. You are womanly. You are phenomenal. God bless. But it has become virtually impossible for a celebrity to go through a pregnancy without getting naked for the cameras, her fans and — presumably — herself.

Fox Club Accepts Group of Women to Its Membership The formerly all-male final club is the second this fall to move to go co-ed
By Theodore R. Delwiche and Noah J. Delwiche, CRIMSON STAFF WRITERS October 25, 2015

 

195800_1289734.jpg.996x1500_q95_crop-sma
The Fox Club.

UPDATED: October 26, 2015, at 2:41 a.m.

The Fox Club, one of Harvard’s eight male final clubs, has accepted a group of junior and senior women into its membership, making it the second of the off-campus social organizations this fall to move to go co-ed.

An email message carrying the subject line “The Future of the Fox Club” and obtained by The Crimson early Sunday morning told prospective members of the club that a “group” of women had joined its membership and that it intended to “transition to a fully co-ed club over the next year.”

“Earlier this year, after much discussion and deliberation, the undergraduate members of the Fox Club decided to open our membership to women,” said the message, signed by the “President and Members of the Fox Club” and sent from the email account foxclubpresident@gmail.com. “A group of junior and senior women have accepted an offer of membership and, in their capacity as members, will be advising our transition to a fully co-ed club over the next year.”

Several current undergraduate officers of the Fox, which was founded in 1898 and is located at 44 John F. Kennedy St., could not be immediately be reached for comment early Sunday morning.

The Fox’s move comes six weeks after the Spee Club, another male final club based on Mount Auburn Street, voted to invite women to participate in its punch process, an annual rite in which the groups put prospective members up for entry each fall. It is unclear whether the Spee has formally admitted any women into its membership; the punch process is ongoing.

The Spee’s decision, which attracted national media attention and drew praise from administrators, came on the heels of mounting scrutiny of the final clubs, which have been officially unrecognized by Harvard since 1984, when they chose to sever ties with the University rather than admit women.

Top administrators, including University President Drew G. Faust, have recently criticized the all-male organizations on grounds of gender exclusivity and the potential for alcohol abuse and sexual assault to occur on their off-campus properties. In the face of this scrutiny, many clubs have gone quiet; last spring, the Fox decided to tighten its membership rules, reinforcing a no-guest policy.

Fox Club Again All-Male After 'Provisional' Membership Revoked for Women
By Hannah Natanson and Derek G. Xiao, CRIMSON STAFF WRITERS 2 days ago

The Fox Club will not allow the nine women who had enjoyed “provisional” status in the group to become full members, effectively expelling the women and marking the club’s return to all-male status almost two years after it first became co-ed.

The move, detailed in internal correspondence between recent Fox graduates, ends the club’s experiment in co-ed membership, which began in October 2015 when undergraduates admitted a group of upperclassmen women as members. That decision deeply divided the club, pitting graduate and undergraduate members against each other as Harvard administrators pressured final clubs to go gender-neutral.

Ultimately, the club’s graduate leadership allowed the women to stay on as “provisional” members—a designation that many male members also adopted at the time in a show of support for their female peers. But the club did not invite any more women to join the club, accepting an all-male class of membership last fall.

The Fox Club will not allow the nine women who had enjoyed 'provisional' status in the group to become full members, marking the club's return to all-male status.

Now, the graduate board is revoking membership for all “provisional” members and inviting only men to re-apply for full membership, according to screenshots of correspondence between recent Fox graduates obtained by The Crimson.

 

In those messages, former Fox undergraduate president Daniel T. Skarzynski ’16 wrote that club graduate board president Hugh M. Nesbit ’77 had informed him that provisional female and male graduate members no longer belonged to the club.

“For the concerned parties, [Nesbit] also said that if you’d like to be re-considered for membership, you should send an email to that effect… and that the grad board will vote individually,” Skarzynski wrote. “However, he said this invite for reapplication does not apply to female members until such a time as the club votes successfully to add women to its membership.

One can safely (?) presume that there are No Trannies, or exotics with "preferred pronouns" allowed at the Fox Club

 

Is the rollback a early sign that we may be seeing a pendulum swing back towards traditional values perhaps?

Straight white men--the one group who must never, ever be allowed to unite in their own interests.

Why can't women form their own clubs? Oh right...feminism is about colonizing. appropriating, or destroying male space. Their idea is if men no longer have male spaces, they will lose their male identity.

Tough sh*t, girls. Men are waking up to the scam.

Masculinity has been under attack for decades. The Sit Coms have always made the dad a girly man like idiot, and the women/mom ruling the roost. By design folks. Just one of the many by-design tactics to weaken the traditional family, which is the Pillar of strength for any nation to survive. They have done a great job as we can see with the limp wristed girly men, millennial generation of today. They have even made Ken, the Barbie doll boyfriend, into a feminine millennial, gender neutral dweeb. And to add to the madness, the other day I was shopping with my kids and found a "Public Assistance Barbie." Stated on box: "Comes with her very own EBT Card and Pajamas, for simulated fun shopping at Walmart." Display said....."All you had to do was bring it to the front register, and the first person behind you has to pay for it. Accessories stole separately."

It has all gone wrong. We need a return to the traditional greatest generation, because it worked

Freedom of association. No controversy here. In fact, it's nice to see a group of men stand up to the feminist bullies who have taken over America. The real question is will other men, namely employers, be inspired by the fine example of the Fox Club? The sooner we get rid of the cancerous meme that women need to be "better represented" in prominent, high paying positions in the work force, the better.

 

JayCole 17 hours ago

I believe that some men are waking up to the fact that feminism was never about "equal pay for equal work." It was and is based on the idea of institutionalizing the hatred of men simply because they are men. I think it was Gloria Steinem, the patron saint (if any of them believe in saints) of the feminists who said, "a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle." Very pithy. And a perfect description of the real feminist mindset

NEW MOVEMENT: The "Freedom & Excellence" movement

 

+ Wants the end to safe spaces - people need to accept and confront everyday realities facing them

+ Free speech; no "favored victim groups". no labels like "hate speech" to silence free speech

 

+ Facts over Feelings - there are two genders; men and women deserve equal chances, but not special privileges. or govenrment tampering to favor them.

+ Promotion of pro-family policies, and acceptance than a majority are happiest in traditional family roles, but choices remain open

 

+ Push for excellence in all facets of life

+

 

+ Acceptance of all races, fair treatment, and respect - but do not demand of expect equality of result

+ Study and undertstand the virtues of the West and traditional culture

+ Hatred of whites and white males especially, is no more acceptable than hatred of other races

 

+ Voluntary efforts, and charity - not government action. Promotion of lower taxes, less regulation, but low tolerance of predatory economic hbehaviors

Is this a viable mix ?

Feminist scientists say citing research by straight, white men promotes 'system of oppression'...

 

Academics and scholars must be mindful about using research done by only straight, white men, according to two scientists who argued that it oppresses diverse voices and bolsters the status of already privileged and established white male scholars.

 

Geographers Carrie Mott and Daniel Cockayne argued in a recent paper that doing so also perpetuates what they call “white heteromasculinism,” which they defined as a “system of oppression” that benefits only those who are “white, male, able-bodied, economically privileged, heterosexual, and cisgendered.” (Cisgendered describes people whose gender identity matches their birth sex.)

Camille Paglia Urges Feminists to Stop Blaming Men for their Discontent

"Women are also feeling a Sense of displacement, and loneliness"

 

Modern Times: Camille Paglia & Jordan B Peterson

 

Dr. Camille Paglia is a well-known American intellectual and social critic. She has been a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (where this discussion took place) since 1984. She is the author of seven books focusing on literature, visual art, music, and film history, among other topics. The most well-known of these is Sexual Personae (http://amzn.to/2xVGEEV), an expansion of her highly original doctoral thesis at Yale. The newest, Free Women, Free Men: Sex, Gender, Feminism, was published by Pantheon Books in March 2017 (http://amzn.to/2hGycTG). Dr. Paglia has been warning about the decline and corruption of the modern humanities for decades, and she is a serious critic of the postmodern ethos that currently dominates much of academia. Although she is a committed equity feminist, she firmly opposes the victim/oppressor narrative that dominates much of modern American and British feminism. In this wide-ranging discussion, we cover (among other topics) the pernicious influence of the French intellectuals of the 1970's on the American academy, the symbolic utility of religious tradition, the tendency toward intellectual conformity and linguistic camouflage among university careerists, the under-utilization of Carl Jung and his student, Erich Neumann, in literary criticism and the study of the humanities, and the demolition of the traditional roles and identity of men and women in the West.

 

RESENTMENT & jealousy have driven academics for decades

The ignore the beauty of religion, and instead aim to destroy it

 

(The conversation about gender, maybe 1/4 in, was among the most interesting parts):

 

Camille: "Men need to stand up, and defend themselves."

Jordan: "Men know how defend themselves from men, but not from crazy women."

 

Camille: "When society collapses, it will be brought back by men, as women cower in the houses"

 

Camille: "Seeing men always as oppressors, and women always as victims, will assure the permanent infantilization of women."

Men Taking Classes to Unlearn 'Toxic Masculinity'...

 

 

The program bills itself as a class where men “learn how social constructs of masculinity harm them and the people around them, and work to construct healthier masculinities.” Or, as Hicks puts it, “It was eight weeks of guys discussing how they can address their actions with better self-awareness and less toxicity.”

“We spoke of emotional labor, consent, violence, communication, empathy, and vulnerability,” he adds, noting that the last subject, in particular, was a struggle for him: “[i was] trained and conditioned to be tough growing up.”

The Rethink program is the latest in a growing number of courses targeted toward people who identify as men, including the Men’s Project at the University of Wisconsin, Masculinity 101 at Brown, and the Duke Men’s Project at Duke. The goal, proponents say, is to help men examine their own biases and behaviors in order to cut down on misogyny and gender-based violence.

There’s no doubt that the problems these classes aim to tackle are pervasive ones — a reality that’s been made especially, painfully clear in recent days and weeks, as the Harvey Weinstein revelations have pushed discussions of sexual assault and harassment to the forefront. But can a class really be enough to chip away at something so deeply entrenched?

“It’s a promising approach,” says Eric Mankowski, associate chair of the psychology department at Portland State University and head of the school’s Gender and Violence Intervention Research Team, “but we don’t know whether they prevent sexual violence. Some studies show promising effects on attitudes and behavior intentions, but a single class is unlikely to undo years of socialization in toxic masculinity.”

For the past 25 years, Mankowski has taught a course titled Psychology of Men and Masculinities, which, he says, “deconstruct how masculinity is socialized as a performative mask rather than a biological imperative.” He argues that the concept of “toxic masculinity” has four main components: suppression of anything stereotypically feminine; suppression of emotions related to vulnerability, like fear, sadness, or helplessness; male domination over women and other men; and aggression.

“From those four distal expectations come the proximal attitudes and behaviors, like ‘I deserve to have access to women’s bodies,’” he explains. “What we don’t know is if it’s more effective to address the distal or proximal ideas and behaviors.” Mankowski says alcohol abuse is a perfect example. “It numbs feelings and allows men to act aggressive. We can effectively address it, but we’re not addressing the underlying issue. It’s functioning to help them display their manhood, so why would they stop

The unfolding Harvey Weinstein scandal has shone a sharp light on the current state of women’s battle for equality.

 

Financial Times journalists — men and women — explain what feminism means to them in 2017.

 

India Ross FT Weekend journalist

One morning in January this year, I woke up, fumbled for my phone and laid eyes on the feminist event of the decade. From the cold grey streets, a pink woolly-hatted mass appeared on my screen: an expression of female solidarity for the age of Instagram. As I scrolled blearily through the footage of the Women’s March, which was orchestrated on social media, it struck me as being two things at once: a seminal moment in the history of civil rights, and a distinctly millennial sort of protest. We are at a point in the feminist movement when a once gritty and anonymous grassroots struggle has become “woke”, cool and endlessly Instagrammable. A thankless act of political lobbying has somehow, among the middle-class western youth at least, morphed into a performative, celebratory act of self-expression. Everything we do is pervaded with a sense of sisterhood, of empowerment, of a newfound freedom to be our truest, messiest selves.

 

(if this is not utter BS, I do not know what is!)

 

On a typical evening a few Fridays ago, for instance, I got home from work, watched an episode of the raucously sex-positive comedy Broad City, put on a scruffy T-shirt that read “Hillary for President”, and went to a queer feminist party called “Pxssy Palace”.

 

(I wonder if she realized she was supporting a criminal, now headed for prison possibly?)

 

It was a sweaty mess of women of all colours, drag queens and non-binary people, all twerking to Beyoncé and Rihanna. There was not a cisgendered, heterosexual man in sight. My cohort is more vocal in its fight for women’s rights than perhaps any in history. It’s the generation of “I’m with her”, of Broad City’s signature slogan “Yasss kween”, of Kendall Jenner wearing a £490 Dior T-shirt emblazoned with the words “We should all be feminists”. And yet it is fraught with contradictions. Most of my friends outwardly ally themselves with the cause, but they don’t exactly have a track record of activism. Kendall Jenner wearing a Dior T-shirt It seems to me that our involvement is fundamentally thin; we are fair-weather feminists. Well-intentioned, for sure, but ultimately as interested in the movement for the social opportunities it offers, and for the sense of camaraderie and self-worth it lends us, as for its ability to bring about meaningful change.

 

If I were really a feminist, wouldn’t I be volunteering to help women in poverty, or those suffering abuse?

Wouldn’t I be lobbying politicians to close the gender pay gap?

 

(It is a total myth, you imbecile!)

 

Wouldn’t I at least have read some Gloria Steinem? So, all in all, we’re the worst.

A generation of slacktivists whose half-hearted approach to civil rights seems unlikely to achieve anything for women whose need is greater than our own. Sure, the fact that my peers now have a more nuanced and open-minded definition of femininity means that I can stop brushing my hair and start wearing tracksuit bottoms to parties, but what we’re doing for those facing more pressing issues than their wardrobes is another matter. Will my listening to Beyoncé’s Lemonade bring about equality for women of colour? Probably not.

 

Will my watching Jill Soloway’s Transparent protect trans women from hate crimes? Unlikely.

 

(Who is going to protect ordinary citizens from the massive political excesses of the TRANZ-warriors? A more genuine issue)

 

But perhaps the Generation-Y brand of feminism isn’t entirely useless. Conversations that begin online and in popular culture can eventually manifest themselves in real-world change. Whether or not this year’s Women’s Marches turn out to have any impact on the future of civil rights is yet to be seen, but these events occurred — and history will remember them. Half a million people left their homes and drew the attention of the world by walking together in the January cold. Even if they were only there for the selfies.

 

Henry Mance FT political correspondent

 

Your thirties are when it becomes real. At least for me — as a man, and as a new father. It’s when feminism starts to require reflection and sacrifices. Oh sure, I thought I was a feminist in my teens and my twenties. But it was a box-ticking exercise. All I signed up to was to nod at mentions of the Suffragettes, and to frown at jokes about female drivers. I just didn’t want to be a philistine. I read The Vagina Monologues, and I never thought about it again. I do vaguely remember my wife once saying, “I hope you would call yourself a feminist.” But in practice, the only test was that when she cooked, I washed up, and vice versa. In my defence, girls beat boys in exams when I was at school. And when I was at university, female students outnumbered males. In the UK, there is virtually no pay gap between men and women in their twenties. So as a young man starting work, you can recognise that women are worse off, and think that it is another generation’s problem. You can be a male feminist in the belief that the problem is working itself through the system. For me, this changed soon after I hit 30. Before having kids, my wife and I divided things roughly equally. Our daughter exploded that pretence. I took just two weeks’ paternity leave and went ahead with my career, while my wife put hers on pause. I knew I should have taken more leave. But however ridiculous it sounds, I also felt like the prospect of a career break came a little out of the blue. I hadn’t been given enough warning! This was the cost of not thinking about it in my twenties. I had reproduced the failings of the previous generation. Nonetheless, inequality at home has made me more alive to inequalities outside. Why are there so few women on TV panel shows? Why do women receive more abuse online? I find it hard to look past these issues. I’m less interested in TV shows and films that fail to develop female characters. In other words, feminism has ruined Woody Allen for me.

But I have found two things particularly difficult. First, feminism isn’t costless for a man. “Every time we liberate a woman, we liberate a man,” the ever-quotable anthropologist Margaret Mead said, and it’s a nice line. But if women are going to occupy more top jobs, that by definition means men will occupy fewer. If women are going to have more power and do less childcare, then men are going to have less power and do more childcare. And if we focus on eliminating the pay gap between men and women, which mainly exists among older employees, will there be less in the pot to close the pay gap between young and old? The second difficulty is judging what a feminist approach is. When John McEnroe said Serena Williams would be ranked “like 700 in the world” if she were a male tennis player, I thought he was just stating a fact. My wife exposed it as a false comparison — like pitting a middleweight boxer against a heavyweight. These gendered topics feel like dangerous territory, and the easiest option is to skirt round them. But I feel like men need to be in the conversation. Feminism is a duty you can’t discharge just by silently thinking the right things.

"Women get paid (by the state) whether they work on a relationship or not"

 

BATTLE OF THE SEXES?

 

Feminism spreads because:

+ Women outlive men, and can thereby out-vote men

+ Women would rather rely on the state to get resources, than their ability to team up with men to get resources

+ Divorced women, or women with crappy relationships want to "normalize" their situations
