An article once appeared here that was written in November 2010 to be provocative and controversial and specifically to inflame tempers, to challenge people’s core beliefs in the most ruthless way possible to make them discuss taboo subjects.
It was, to use a phrase feminist Camille Paglia once used, a “necessary savaging” of a once-taboo subject. Now that the culture at large is beginning to acknowledge that both men and women can and do engage in abusive behavior that can provoke violent, dangerous reactions in psychotic and irresponsible individuals, and now that the culture is beginning to recognize that men are at least as likely to be victims of sexual assault as women, and women far more likely to be perpetrators of sexual assault than was once commonly believed, and a more mature dialogue has begun on the non-gendered nature of rape and sexual assault and abuse, the old article no longer serves its intended purpose; it only tends to be quoted out of context by dishonest ideologues as “typical” of the AVFM’s content rather than the unusually provocative article that it was.
Thus its continued presence on these pages only tended to cause confusion and to be used dishonestly by people who don’t seek a real dialogue on the issues. As such it has been archived and will no longer be publicly available on this site, unless once again the Men’s Human Rights Movement is silenced and ignored, and retrograde attitudes about human sexuality once again have the common currency they did in the first decade of the this Century. As of 2014, the article is no longer relevant and now causes more confusion than anything.
So while you may scour other sites looking for copies of the article, some of which may be accurate copies and some not, you won’t find it here, as it was never “typical” content for this site at any time, and it no longer serves a useful service to anyone but dishonest and hateful ideologues. If you really must find it, go look elsewhere.
Otherwise, just enjoy this musical interlude.
