The future distopia imagery escalates with an early shot of several dozen armoured riot police rushing past the camera at about 20 seconds into the video – the shot cuts to Beyonce triumphally raising her arms from atop a burned out car.
The most remarkable thing about this, is not that a man was so brutalized by the family court system that self immolation seemed a logical choice to him, but that this story is not on the front page of every news site in North America. The carnage of a feminized family court system written on pavement in charred flesh, melted human body fat and blood.
Women, all claims of patriarchy aside, are in charge. Women control 2/3 of disposable income. Women control access to sex, women own all rights of reproduction, and thereby, control men. (Whether they wish to admit it or not) More women than men vote. And, it is not a coincidence that in this society we keep calling a patriarchy, it’s 93% of workplace deaths that are men.
Here’s to the fallen. May their son’s learn from the mistake.
When women talk about shoes, I don’t suppose a lot of them have these images in mind. While they are buying a pair of the latest fashionable boots from the hottest ‘designer of the moment’, many families are affected and grieving for the men who have donned, and lost life and limb, in his particular footwear.
The continually escalating narrative of “protecting” women by affording them ever greater protection and privilege above and beyond the legal rights of “bad” men is designed to produce a society in which nobody has legal rights except for the members of a few banking families. Not even women will have human rights in that world, because the men who would have protected them will be, and are being reduced to the legal status of furniture and appliances.
This war is a CRUDE business.
The young men we have sacrificed and the families we have ripped apart, are just the fodder offered up for a corporatocracy that knows no limit to avarice and indecency.
The war against men is rapidly becoming a shooting war, the bodies are piling up, and the courts collude in the violence.
The woman heard about these men suffocating [screaming for fresh cool air, stampeding on the bodies of the dying to pull them away from a crack to get oxygen, brains boiling, chewing off fingertips and sucking on the sweat and blood to get a few drops of moisture.
The only women who are going to be invited to the peace negotiating tables are women who can be just as ruthless, uncaring, spiteful, greedy, and violent as the men who are sitting there. In short, the really nasty sort of feminists. To be more specific, not the sort of women who are truly anti-war.
I was up burning some 4:00 a.m. oil when I ran across a comment just posted to my YouTube video “Domestic Violence, Women are Half the Problem.” Actually it was a two part comment. The first half was just standard shame trip and ad hominem. Not worth posting here. And while the second half of [...]
When an article that paints Assange as “a man of strong sexual appetites who is not averse to exploiting his fame” can’t find a single thing to substantiate the rape charges, what are the chances that a single male reader will not see this as a wake-up call?
“Women have always been the primary victims of war” said Hillary Clinton, while at a conference on Domestic Violence in San Salvador.
According to an article in The Washington Post, the names of military men who commit suicide as a result of the trauma with which they suffer are not being listed on memorials to the ongoing War on Certain Kinds of Terror. The surviving families are quite understandably upset. There is another aspect of this story that is telling.
The term stop-loss has been wildly abused in the media, often being used in reference to an IRR recall as discussed above or in instances when active duty soldiers have had their deployment extended.
