Feminists are nasty things.
http://www.angryharry.com/esFeministsarenastythings.htm
Esther Vilar wrote her book, The Manipulated Man, in 1972. In 1998 she wrote that, "violent threats have not ceased to this date." In other words, for over 25 years has Esther Vilar been subjected to the nastiness and vindictiveness of feminist women simply because she spoke up on behalf of men.

And this has been the experience of many WOMEN who have tried to expose feminists and feminism for what they really are.

And this is why politicians and the media are so terrified of offending feminists and women's groups.

These are mostly made up of a particularly revolting and hostile bunch of women who are quite prepared to use the most odious of tactics in order to keep alive and further their hatred of all things male.

Here is what Erin Pizzey - the very founder of the Refuge Centres for Battered Women - has to say. All through my career, as a journalist, a writer and a social reformer, I have been hounded and bullied by feminist women and their coat-trailing 'new men.'

And this is what recently happened to Professor Christina Hoff Sommers ...

From: Christina Sommers

I enclose a statement I wrote about the event.

Statement by Christina Hoff Sommers regarding participation in a Health and Human Services program "Boy Talk : A Dialogue About the Health and Well Being of Boys in America"

On November 1, 2001 I served as an invited panelist at a program sponsored by the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) at Heath and Human Services (HHS). The program was entitled "Boy Talk: A Dialogue About the Heath and Well Being of Boys in America." Before I describe the ugly treatment to which I was subjected, I shall describe my background.

I am a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. I have written a well-received book on boys (The War Against Boys Simon & Schuster, 2000). The book was excerpted for a cover story in The Atlantic Monthly and was selected as a "notable book of the year" by The New York Times. So, now I am frequently invited to speak about boys at conferences around the country. In the past year, I have delivered a keynote address at International Coalition of Boys Schools, read a paper at a scholarly conference on boys at Morehouse College, and addressed audiences at dozens of schools and colleges. Without exception, audiences and panels have hitherto been courteous and civil. The HHS panel on November 1st was very much the exception. Here is what happened.

My panel "What is Being Done for Boys?" convened at 1:30. The first speaker was Joe Ereneta, a young man from San Francisco who works for Lyric, a group that offers help to gay and lesbian youths, bisexual and transgendered youth. He was followed by Marvin Eisner from the Urban Institute who gave a talk that was well-structured and contained information critical to any successful program for boys. Eisner emphasized the importance of evidence-based programs and the necessity of rigorous follow-up evaluation. The focus on evidence and outcomes seemed to exasperate some members of the HHS staff. In the middle of his talk, he was interrupted by an HHS official, Ms. Luisa Pollard, who criticized him for being off the point. Her objection was lengthy and somewhat incoherent. Mr. Eisner was flustered and never able to finish.

Now it was my turn. I cited research showing that boys were at greater risk than girls for academic failure and for drug and alcohol disabilities. But I cautioned HHS to be careful in its remedies. There is no good evidence that gender-specific drug and alcohol programs are better than gender-neutral programs. HHS has invested millions of dollars in a highly dubious program called "Girl Power!" The new program for boys ( "Boy Talk") looks very much like Girl Power!. It was my intention to suggest that the HHS officials first do some careful studies of Girl Power! before replicating it for boys. But before I could explain these concerns, I was cut off by Ms. Linda Bass, another HHS official. (She is Acting Branch Chief in the Public Education Branch of the Center for Substance Abuse and Prevention. ) She called out from her chair that I had not been invited there to talk about "Girl Power!" She instructed me to move on and to leave that subject alone. I politely explained to her and the audience that if HHS was launching a program for boys modeled on "Girl Power!" it was essential that the Girl Power! be evaluated for effectiveness. A furious Ms. Bass insisted again that I drop the subject. I was ordered not to talk about Girl Power! I was startled by her behavior and her efforts to muzzle me. It soon proved impossible to finish the comments I had been invited to present.

Ms. Bass and her associate Mr. Kevin Teal (a member of the CSAP "Communication team" at HHS ) immediately called for a break. They rushed out of the room and caucused intensely for 15 minutes. I was then informed that my question and answer period was canceled. We would proceed to a "facilitated discussion" led by Mr. Teal. I asked Mr. Teal if we could take a vote to see if the audience would allow me to have a question and answer period. He did not think that was a good idea. "You can leave," said the less polite Ms. Bass.

But, I decided not to leave.This was, after all, a government-sponsored conference. I was an invited participant, author of a book on boys. All the audience members were there to share their expertise and views with HHS officials to help them with the "Boy Talk" campaign.

Mr. Teal soon lost control of the "facilitated discussion." It disintegrated into an all-out attack on social science. Several audience members attacked me and Marvin Eisen for paying so much attention to data. "You can prove anything with statistics," said one participant. Many in the room roared with approval for this insight.

I am a philosophy professor and I rarely walk away from an argument. I was troubled by the rampant ant-intellectualism in the room and I said so. I made some attempts to defend scientific methodology. If you want to help at-risk children, you need to be sure that the methods you are using are effective. This invited more opprobrium, more denunciations. Professor Jay Wade of the Department of Psychology at Fordham University delighted many in the audience when he said Shut the F*** up bitch." Miss Bass and Mr. Teal, who were officially in charge of the proceedings, did and said nothing to protect a speaker they had invited from this kind of abusive attack.

One member of the audience, Greg Orfalea , a public affairs specialist at HHS, had finally had had enough. He stood up and told the enraged professor from New York that it was inappropriate to speak to anyone in that manner. He also chastised his colleagues at CSAP for treating a guest so rudely.

I decided it was time to leave. Civil discussion was impossible. But, before I left, I stopped at the desk in the back of the room where a woman was taping the event. I requested that she send me a copy of the tape. Ms. Bass rushed over and told me that I could not have a copy and that CSAP had not decided how they were going to use it. (I now have a copy and a written transcript)

Something is seriously wrong at in the CSAP division at Heath and Human Services. I hope that someone in a position of responsibility will demand to a copy of the tape, listen to it and do something to restore some badly needed professionalism and common courtesy. No government official should be allowed to behave the way these HHS officials behaved to me.

Angry Wimmin O`Beirne has hit a nerve, and now these same angry women are trying to sink the book. Their tactic is an apparent smear campaign on Amazon.com. Charlotte Hays

Attacking The Researchers When we reported the results of the Second National Family Violence Survey the personal attacks continued and the professional critiques simply ignored methodological revisions to the measurement instrument. This round of personal attacks was much more insidious`”in particular, it was alleged that Murray had abused his wife. This is a rather typical critique in the field of family violence`”men whose research results are contrary to political correctness are labeled `perps.`

Angry Harry Analysed By Psychologists According to the Critical Research Group Angry Harry`s image of heroic masculinity is rooted in traditional ideas of manliness in which the hero is one who rejects notions of gender equality".

Yeah, right.

Hmm. Can anyone tell me where, exactly, on this website is there expressed any desire on my part for society to return to the 'traditional ideas of manliness' and where, exactly, on this website is there any suggestion that someone who rejects 'notions of gender equality' is necessarily a 'hero'?

Well. "Nowhere," is the correct answer to both questions.

And these people consider themselves to be the brains of our society!

What.

A.

Joke.

The authors will discuss the implications of Angry Harry`s arguments for challenging or supporting efforts towards gender equality in this society.

Oh, will they now?

That's good.

But, of course, they didn't discuss these things with me, did they?

Well, of course, I don't really care; but it does irritate me to discover that even supposedly lofty academics cannot understand my various pontifications.

But, then again, as I have often pointed out, these so-called academics are nowadays little more than politically-corrected robots with not much in the way of intellect. They have been completely brainwashed throughout their lives and are incapable of stepping out of the mental boxes in which they have become entrapped. "Men are abusers and women are abused," is about the only refrain that rattles around inside their empty heads.

It is this refrain that gets them promoted up the career ladder. And so they learn it well.

For example, ...

How Feminists Do Their 'Research' When Suzanne Steinmetz revealed that women are often as violent as their husbands, the fem-fascists started a whispering campaign designed to block her promotion at the University of Delaware. When that didn`t work, they phoned in a bomb threat at her daughter`s wedding. Cowed by the threats, Steinmetz soon suspended her pioneering research. Carey Roberts

Ho Hum.

Never mind.

But, I repeat, there is nowhere on this website where I particularly endorse 'traditional ideas of manliness' nor anywhere do I make the suggestion that resisting (their stupid bankrupt notions of) 'gender equality' is especially heroic.

Grrr.

I'm in a bad mood now.

So here's this! ...

Suffragettes 'were like al-Qa'eda' A new thesis published this week claims that the "so-called heroines" of the fight for the vote for women actually delayed progress by their "carefully calculated, stage managed, cold-blooded crimes".

Men Are Doomed The scientists predicting the demise of the Y get furious emails from men denouncing them as "man-haters". One website that pelts Jones, AngryHarry.com, rants that men will prevail over women, who are described as Marxists and Nazis. Maureen Dowd

Yo!

Angry Harry mentioned in the Sydney Morning Herald - and in Maureen Dowd's book!

Yo! - again!

But, of course, Mzzzz Dowd is telling lies - something that media feminists do all the time in order to demonise men - the evidence for which is strewn all over this website.

Lies. Lies. Lies.

There is nowhere on this website where I describe women as Marxists or Nazis.

Harlots, hussies, harridans and ho's: Yes indeed.

But, 'Nazis'?

Never!

(Also see, Biologist Steven Jones - A Parasite? and Feminism and Nazism.)

Women Who Make the World Worse Women Who Make the World Worse shows how feminism has devastated American society: fracturing families; making American schools and workplaces into battlefields to advance feminist causes; and exalting working women among mothers and consigning millions of children to a soulless upbringing by daycare center employees. Through it all, O'Beirne shows that feminists have poisoned American public discourse about gender issues with politically charged claptrap about how a hostile patriarchy makes women its helpless victims. Kate O'Beirne

Suffragettes Planned To Kill PM Suffragettes planned to assassinate the Prime Minister early in the last century and honed their gun skills at a shooting range, according to Home Office advisers investigating the threat.

Their memorandum, from 1909, describes pickets at the House of Commons as `half-insane women` who intended to commit acts of violence.
From: Dr. Reena Sommer

Hello:

I'd like to add my comments to the discussion of lesbian violence, DV in general as well as respond to feedback on the Susan Thread.....

When my own research on female perpetrated violence first came out (1992), the feminists jumped all over me with criticisms. They took offence at my reporting that there are just as many women who use physically abusive tactics as they are men. Because I was also a woman, they had a particularly difficult time dealing with me and my findings. They saw me as a defender of men and as a traitor to women. When they tried to argue that men are "inherently" violent and that any discussion of women's violence was another attempt by the "male proletariat" to further subjugate women, I countered with the research on lesbian abuse which reports that rates of reported abuse in this population are equivalent to those found among heterosexual couples.

The feminists then used a different line of defence by arguing that women's abuse toward men was purely in self defence. That too became problematic when I reported my research finding that more than 85% of women who had used abusive tactics reported that it was for reasons other than self defence.

Back in 1990's, the feminist organizations were an extremely powerful lobby. Through their efforts they shaped public perception and were successful in securing considerable funding to advance their positions and run women's shelters throughout the U.S. and Canada. However, investigations showed that the research put out by feminist led groups was methodologically unsound and/or biased and that shelters were either inflating their occupancy rates and/or they were filling their beds with women who were not abuse victims, but were new immigrants/refugees in need of housing.

    Good article, Ninpo.  Could they be nasty because most of them are jews?   The jews attack their perceived adversaries with hysterical vindictiveness.   The 'rights' movements they spawned among women, blacks and homosexuals (which overlaps the feminist movement), used the same hateful tactics the jews use.  Feminists told lie after lie about men.   Half of domestic abuse is done by women but that fact is never headlined in your local paper.  All of their demands, though supposedly meant to bring them equality in society, are really intended to destroy Straight White Male-led Christian society.   I know you would welcome the Christianity-destroying part, but the rest of it is certainly aimed at you too.

That's true.  Jews created feminism for 3 purposes: 1) to destroy the grace of womanhood; 2) to destroy the chivalry of manhood; and 3) to destroy the common bond between the two.

   That's interesting, a three-part goal.  Well, they seem to have succeeded, from divorce statistics, etc, and to have seriously damaged society, which is their larger goal.

They saw me as a defender of men and as a traitor to women.

Which pretty much sums up the problem. The feminists have set out to create a schism that never was and immediately circle the wagons when someone points out there ain't no injuns.

Back in 1990's, the feminist organizations were an extremely powerful lobby. Through their efforts they shaped public perception and were successful in securing considerable funding to advance their positions and run women's shelters throughout the U.S. and Canada. However, investigations showed that the research put out by feminist led groups was methodologically unsound and/or biased and that shelters were either inflating their occupancy rates and/or they were filling their beds with women who were not abuse victims, but were new immigrants/refugees in need of housing.

On a personal note I tried very much to help a woman to get back on her feet, get off pharma drugs and crack. Instead of appreciation I got vilified and my hospitality abused. She thought nothing of going to WAVA (Women Against Violence Assoc.) for help (for what, I have no idea) and making like a victim. All her problems stemmed from a sense of entitlement and escapism through drugs... but apparently I was the only one to notice these glaring examples of self abuse. Ah well, the die is cast and I rather doubt that any normality will come back into society as long as women play 'victim' while victimizing decent men (as opposed to the abusers who they view as "real men"). The psychological trauma that has been caused by all this PC BS will take years to unravel (if ever).

Good article.

      It is from the family that we derive our identity and fulfill the potentialities for personal growth 
      and development.

      It is natural for human race to experience dynamic changes, which are inevitable using the family
      as a take off base for positive advances.

      The family is the smallest unit of human socio-economic organization. It is the link between the
      individual and the society.

      Any society, nation or state that undermines the pivotal role of the family will disconnect itself
      from her meaningful flowering and dynamic source, such society may not know it but sooner or
      later, such society will become a theater of conflict in which life will be short, brutal and nasty.

These were one of my first formal lessons learned in school ~ but the basics are learned in the home.
"At any given moment there is an orthodoxy, a body of ideas which it is assumed all right-thinking people will accept without question. It is not exactly forbidden to state this or that or the other, but it is "not done".
...Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with.

She and Lucretia Mott decided that a women's rights convention was in order. Eight years later, in 1848, the first women's rights convention took place at Seneca Falls, New York. It was there that, using the Declaration of Independence as a guide, the Declaration of Sentiments was written. Stanton, with Susan B. Anthony, organized the Women's Loyal National League to fight slavery (1863) and founded the National Woman Suffrage Association (1869) of which Stanton served as president. Stanton was also the co-editor of The Revolution, a weekly woman's suffrage paper published by Anthony, and author of The Woman's Bible (1895) and an autobiography, Eighty Years and More (1898).
     
Steinem, Gloria (1934- ).
    Writer and editor. Born in Toledo, Ohio. During the 1960's she appeared as a leader in the women's movement in the United States. In 1970 co-founded Ms., which grew to be a leading feminist magazine.
     
Stone, Lucy (1818-1893).
    American feminist and abolitionist, born in West Brookfield, Massachusetts, and educated at Oberlin College. Noted as a lecturer on women's suffrage and as an advocate of the abolition of slavery. A leader of the American Woman's Suffrage Association, she founded (1870) the Woman's Journal, the chief publication of the women's movement. Until her death she edited the journal, assisted by her husband, the American abolitionist Henry Blackwell. Stone created controversy by retaining her maiden name after her marriage as a symbol of a woman's right to individuality. Those who followed her example came to be known as Lucy Stoners.
 
Truth, Sojourner (1797-1883)
.
    Born a slave in New York, Sojourner Truth was originally called Isabella Van Wagner. She gained her freedom in 1827, aftermost of her thirteen children had been sold. She took the name "Sojourner Truth" in 1843 after having a vision. In 1836, Truth became the first African American to win a slander action against whites. At the 1851 Women's Convention in Akron, Ohio, her powerful "Ain't I a Woman" speech awed even detractors.
 
Tubman, Harriet (1821-1913).
    A runaway slave and the conductor of the "Underground Railroad," which helped many other runaway slaves. She rescued over 200 slaves. She has been distinguished as the only woman in American military history to plan and execute an armed expedition against enemy forces.
 
Wollstonecraft, Mary (1759-1797).
    Writer. Born in England. Work includes 'Thoughts on the Education of Daughters' (1787), 'The Female Reader' (1789), and 'A Historical and Moral View of the Origins and Progress of the French Revolution' (1794). 'A Vindication of the Rights of Women' (1792), which challenged Rousseau's ideas of female inferiority, is a classic of liberal feminism.

I cry myself to sleep sometimes thinking about what one of my female friends tells me about her life when I make her open up to me. She cannot open up much, because her heart is closed down by brick and mortar....

I cannot believe that we live on a planet where men call their x wives "sluts" in front of their kids when they were the one who cheated on a women with two babies....

And most women who are not feminists, are still trying to change men....What a f***ed up planet we live on!
