Angry Harry – ‘Men have been brainwashed into believing what is natural is perverted’

I already posted a link to this Angry Harry article a few years ago, but decided to revisit it again because it’s a classic example of the way he brought logic and cool headed reason to subjects that even most ‘red pill’ MRAs and others find hard to do so. Although using the case of a Japanese man caught taking ‘upskirts’ as an example, Harry is really discussing the way in which society pathologizes normal male sexuality through shaming language in order to control it.

What is wrong with men wanting to look up, or under, women’s skirts?

….

A few days ago, I switched on the TV, only to be horribly confronted by the sight of some 17 year old schoolboy from Japan being assiduously kicked and punched by some female who could have been his mother, his girlfriend, his wife, his sister, his schoolteacher, or even his grandmother – you can never quite tell with the Japanese because they age so well.

I put on my glasses to read the subtitles and, in summary, the schoolboy had been caught pointing his camera up the skirts of women and photographing whatever contents lay therein.

“Pervert. Pervert,” she shouted as she beat him about the head rather savagely.

And, “Pervert. Pervert,” shouted just about everyone else for the next ten minutes.

I’d had enough.

So I switched off the TV and spent the next 30 minutes or so thinking about the pleasures of looking up women’s skirts.

I’m a bit passed it now – well, almost – but I can assure my most excellent readers that it is perfectly normal for heterosexual men to enjoy looking up the skirts of women.

And there’s nothing perverted about it.

Indeed, if you look at the way in which women dress in order to titillate men – especially female singers, dancers, celebrities etc – it seems quite clear that just about everybody on the planet is aware of the fact that men enjoy taking sneaky peeks up women’s skirts.

So, what on earth can be ‘perverted’ about it?

Sure, it would be highly inappropriate to wonder around the streets peeking surreptitiously up the skirts of passing strangers as they walked up stairs or bent over to pick up things – and unpleasant for the women, I imagine. And it makes some sense for such activities to be illegal.

But ‘perverted’?

Nah.

Something is ‘perverted’ when it is rare, extreme, a gross distortion of what is natural.

It cannot be ‘perverted’ if it is so common that it is normal.

Goodness me. We don’t even call a bank robber ‘perverted’ – despite the fact that hardly any of us rob banks.

Why?

Well, I presume that this is because while we do not support what a bank robber does, we mostly understand, and can even empathise with, his motives.

His desires!

After all, we all know that most of us would like some extra, easy cash.

So, there is nothing ‘perverted’ about this desire for more money.

But the really interesting thing is this.

You will surely have noticed that MEN can very often be seen endorsing the view that some kind of sexual activity or desire is ‘perverted’ when, quite clearly, it is not; a voyeur trying to look at all the naked ladies in the locker room through the keyhole, a young boy playing doctors and nurses with his sister or his cousin, a panty sniffer, a foot fetishist – and goodness knows what other sexual antics men are disposed to engage in – mentally or behaviourally.

Very few of these things are extreme, rare or gross deviations from what seems to be natural – ‘natural’, essentially being something to do with the fact that males find females to be hugely attractive.

Or are men supposed to be sexually attracted to only one thing when it comes to women?

A single hole.

Of course, some forms of sexual predilection do seem to be ‘perverted’. Necrophilia, sexual murder/mutilation and, perhaps, sex with animals come to mind.

But the notion that a man is a pervert because he has the urge to touch, lick, fondle, smell or view the bodies of women – or parts thereof – seems to be utterly preposterous.

So, what is going on here?

Why is it that so many men – and, indeed, the tabloids – will label as a ‘pervert’ a man who is caught looking up women’s skirts?

And my own view is that, in much the same way that men have been brainwashed into finding funny even acts of horrible male mutilation (such as found in Bobbitt jokes) so it is that they have also been brainwashed into believing that what is natural for them is ‘perverted’.

Indeed, It is quite amazing to see just how stupefied and filled with (unconscious?) self-loathing men have become.

So my message to all you men out there is this.

If you feel the urge to look up the skirts of women, feel no shame

If you feel the urge to look up the skirts of women, feel no shame; because there is nothing perverted about this.

And whenever you hear other men mindlessly suggesting that such a desire is ‘perverted’, then point out to them that they must be so stupefied with malicious, misandric feminist hogwash that they have now, clearly, become very stupid men indeed.

So stupid, in fact, that not only are they demonising themselves, but they seem to be completely unaware of this.

And you can’t get much more stupid than that!

Angry Harry

Most of my readers will have heard the sad news that Angry Harry, father of the men’s rights movement, has passed away.

Personally I’ve never felt such grief at the passing of somebody that I have never met, or who wasn’t a member of my family or a close friend. Harry lived in London, like myself (and several others), and did propose to meet up with me last year, but I took his assurance that he would understand if I was too worried about my anonymity being risked as an excuse to temporarily decline the offer. Actually, I wasn’t worried about any risk to my privacy, as Harry was the one person in the anti-feminist movement I would trust absolutely, in his case not only with my real identity, but with my life. I was simply worried that I would disappoint him as I was in awe of him that much. It will be one of the biggest regrets of my life.

I’ll always be proud of the fact that Harry supported my position in the men’s rights movement right from the start and that this site was always one of a select few that he linked to in his sidebar.

Of course, I should make clear that Angry Harry did not share all of the positions held at this site, and he told me so himself in one of his e-mails (‘a bit too liberal for me’ were his words) but he most certainly did recognize that the core argument made here – that feminist sex hysteria hurts both men and children (and indeed, many women) – is not only a valid men’s rights issue, but one of the most important ones. He also recognized that equality of injustice is no kind of justice for men or boys, and a grave error that many ‘men’s rights activists’ have started to make over the last few years.

Oddly, we were just discussing Angry Harry’s absence here recently and I sent him an e-mail 2 or 3 weeks ago (Harry actually passed away in February). He had ‘gone quiet’ for a spell a couple of years ago, and I e-mailed him then and he replied assuring myself and others that his health was fine and that he was only taking a break from men’s rights. Consequently, I wasn’t overly concerned when he went missing again, although I should have tried to contact him again earlier than I did. Another big regret.

The fight against feminism is certainly lonelier without Angry Harry, but we should honour his memory by resolving to keep the struggle alive. I imagine that at least a few MRAs will be archiving his site – it will certainly be a tragedy if any of his essays are lost. Perhaps over the next few weeks I’ll re-post some of his classic articles. Readers may like to nominate some of their particular favourites or the pieces that have most relevance to the issues we see as important here (and which, unintentionally or not, may be ignored by other MRAs seeking to ‘preserve’ his works).

This site has always had a category devoted to him : http://theantifeminist.com/category/angry-harry-2/

RIP Angry Harry, a truly great man.

Richard Dawkins On Reading Fairytales To Children

But he admitted that he had been sexually abused at his prep school in Salisbury.

Dawkins told the audience how fagging, bullying, cold showers and bruises, which left their mark for three weeks, were common.

He also revealed that a master at the school once “put a hand down his shorts.”

“I got quite a bit of stick for saying that it did not have a big impact but to say that it did would be an indecency to those people whose lives have been ruined by experiences that have been much worse,” he said.

The author of The Selfish Gene and The God Delusion has previously said the had could not condemn the ‘mild paedophilia’ he experience as a boy.

Prof Dawkins, described how a master at his Salisbury prep school “pulled me on to his knee and put his hand inside my shorts”.

He wrote that the episode was “extremely disagreeable” and that other boys were molested by the same teacher, but concludes: “I don’t think he did any of us any lasting damage.”

However his comments were described as a ‘terrible slight’ by the NSPCC.

Where’s Harry?

Angry Harry, the father of the men’s rights movement, and just about the only figure who commands universal respect in the anti-feminist community, stopped updating his site around 2 months ago. He also suddenly stopped updating his twitter feed at the same time and has not replied to subsequent e-mails expressing concern at his silence.

We know that Harry has been suffering from some health problems over recent years, so lets all hope he is well, or at least recovering, and that he will be blogging and tweeting again sometime soon.

Angry Harry – ‘Eleanor of Aquitaine’

http://angryharry.com/

Eleanor of Aquitaine

I stumbled yesterday across an online book by Jacob Abbot; a prolific writer of the nineteenth century. The book is about King Richard I of England (1157-1199) who is often known as Richard the Lionheart because of his bravery in fighting in the Christian Crusades of the time

I only read the first 25 pages, and I found myself laughing at some of the descriptions of Richard’s mother, Eleanor of Aquitaine.

But it also revealed another example from history that exposes the current-day feminist nonsense that women were treated as second-class citizens in those far off days – in this case, some 800 years ago.

In the preface to the book, the author makes the following claims about his study, which seem quite credible to me. This is what he says …

The author of this series has made it his special object to confine himself very strictly, even in the most minute details which he records, to historic truth. The narratives are not tales founded upon history, but history itself, without any embellishment, or any deviations from the strict truth so far as it can now be discovered by an attentive examination of the annals written at the time when the events themselves occurred.

In writing the narratives, the author has endeavored to avail himself of the best sources of information which this country affords; and though, of course, there must be in these volumes, as in all historical accounts, more or less of imperfection and error, there is no intentional embellishment.

Nothing is stated, not even the most minute and apparently imaginary details, without what was deemed good historical authority. The readers, therefore, may rely upon the record as the truth, and nothing but the truth, so far as an honest purpose and a careful examination have been effectual in ascertaining it.

And here is part of his account as it relates to Eleanor and her coterie of female friends …

She spent a considerable portion of her time in Paris, at the court of her husband, but then she often returned to Aquitaine, where she held a sort of court of her own in Bordeaux, which was her capital. She led this sort of life for some time, until at length she was induced to form a design of going to the East on a crusade.

… Her motive was a love of adventure and a fondness for notoriety. She thought that by going out, a young and beautiful princess, at the head of an army of Crusaders, into the East, she would make herself a renowned heroine in the eyes of the whole world. So she immediately commenced her preparations, and by the commanding influence which she exerted over the ladies of the court, she soon inspired them all with her own romantic ardor.

The ladies at once laid aside their feminine dress, and clothed themselves like Amazons, so that they could ride astride on horseback like men. All their talk was of arms, and armor, and horses, and camps. They endeavored, too, to interest all the men—the princes, and barons, and knights that surrounded them—in their plans, and to induce them to join the expedition.

A great many did so, but there were some that shook their heads and seemed inclined to stay at home. They knew that so wild and heedless a plan as this could end in nothing but disaster. The ladies ridiculed these men for their cowardice and want of spirit, and they sent them their distaffs as presents. “We have no longer any use for the distaffs,” said they, “but, as you are intending to stay at home and make women of yourselves, we send them to you, so that you may occupy yourselves with spinning while we are gone.” By such taunts and ridicule as this, a great many were shamed into joining the expedition, whose good sense made them extremely averse to have any thing to do with it.

The expedition was at length organized and prepared to set forth. It was encumbered by the immense quantity of baggage which the queen and her party of women insisted on taking. It is true that they had assumed the dress of Amazons, but this was only for the camp and the field. They expected to enjoy a great many pleasures while they were gone, to give and receive a great many entertainments, and to live in luxury and splendor in the great cities of the East. So they must needs take with them large quantities of baggage, containing dresses and stores of female paraphernalia of all kinds. The king remonstrated against this folly, but all to no purpose. The ladies thought it very hard if, in going on such an expedition, they could not take with them the usual little comforts and conveniences appropriate to their sex. So it ended with their having their own way.

The caprices and freaks of these women continued to harass and interfere with the expedition during the whole course of it. The army of Crusaders reached at length a place near Antioch, in Asia Minor, where they encountered the Saracens. Antioch was then in the possession of the Christians. It was under the command of the Prince Raymond, who has already been spoken of as Eleanora’s uncle. Raymond was a young and very handsome prince, and Eleanora anticipated great pleasure in visiting his capital. The expedition had not, however, yet reached it, but were advancing through the country, defending themselves as well as they could against the troops of Arab horsemen that were harassing their march.

The commanders were greatly perplexed in this emergency to know what to do with the women, and with their immense train of baggage. The king at last sent them on in advance, with all his best troops to accompany them. He directed them to go on, and encamp for the night on certain high ground which he designated, where they would be safe, he said, from an attack by the Arabs. But when they approached the place, Eleanora found a green and fertile valley near, which was very romantic and beautiful, and she decided at once that this was a much prettier place to encamp in than the bare hill above. The officers in command of the troops remonstrated in vain. Eleanora and the ladies insisted on encamping in the valley. The consequence was, that the Arabs came and got possession of the hill, and thus put themselves between the division of the army which was with Eleanora and that which was advancing under the king. A great battle was fought. The French were defeated. A great many thousand men were slain. All the provisions for the army were cut off, and all the ladies’ baggage was seized and plundered by the Arabs. The remainder of the army, with the king, and the queen, and the ladies, succeeded in making their escape to Antioch, and there Prince Raymond opened the gates and let them in.

As soon as Eleanora and the other ladies recovered a little from their fright and fatigue, they began to lead very gay lives in Antioch …

Angry Harry – Sex Crazed Justice System

http://angryharry.com/Sex-Crazed-Justice-System.htm

(excerpt)

Also notice that crimes of violence and serious anti-social behaviours are a constant threat to all of us, and yet the UK’s Crown Prosecution Service and the police expend many millions of dollars on trying to dredge up mountains of flaky evidence on old men who are not a threat to anybody and whose alleged crimes were mostly trivial.

In short, these witch-hunts have little to do with justice or with protecting citizens.

In my view, they are mostly to do with government officials ingratiating themselves to the feminists and to the abuse industry in order to further their careers – with much success, judging by, for example, the recent career history of chief prosecutor, Keir Starmer.

(Readers will surely have noticed that it is extremely common for people seeking publicity and adulation to claim that they are ardent protectors of women and children. By doing so, they are invited to appear all over the place by the feminist-dominated media so that they can be portrayed as heroes fighting, as ever, against wicked men.)

Indeed, the demonisation of men is worth many billions of dollars every year to government officials all over the world – e.g. see Why Governments Love Feminism – and it is also worth billions to the tabloids and to similar media organisations.

And this is just one of the main reasons why they do not want to grant anonymity to defendants. The tabloids need their names so that they can sell more newspapers and, hence, make more money, and the legal officials do not want anonymity for reasons to do with enhancing their careers.

When it comes to ‘sex and abuse’ there is nothing to beat it.

It is a goldmine for millions of people.

(When I say ‘millions’, I am not exaggerating.)

Justice has got absolutely nothing to do with these celebrity witch-hunts..

Finally, one major consequence of these celebrity witch hunts and the persecution of men for alleged ‘historic crimes of abuse’ is that men will increasingly avoid getting too close to women, or children, lest they end up having to pay an extremely heavy price in the future – even in decades to come.

As such, these witch hunts are gradually poisoning all our social and intimate relationships and they are breaking down our social cohesiveness – something that is already causing misery to millions of people.
