Why is there still no pro male sexuality movement?

The invention of the pill changed the sexual landscape forever, and fifty years later, society is still coming to terms with it and working out a new sexual moral code. Or more accurately, women have been working out how to continue justifying and protecting their maladaptive needs, and constrain male sexuality, in a new sexual rulebook enforced upon society and men through feminism (and femiservatism).

The pill, as well as other technological ‘advances’ such as abortion on demand, effectively separated sex from reproduction for the first time in tens of thousands of years of human existance. It ought to have, and for a brief time did, largely separate sex from stifling morality. The pill sexually liberated men far more than it did women, and certainly older women (the type of women which tends to have political power). The problem for men is that in the decades since, whilst feminism has exploded in its Second and Third Waves as a response to the new sexual realities, and as a brutal counterrevolution to the sexual revolution, there has been a near complete lack of male reply.

The pill enabled men to have sex with women without consequence. Sexual morality for thousands of years had been based upon the need to compel men (and the community) to support impregnated women. In fact, Western Civilization today is built upon the Christian myth of the virgin Mary and her baby Jesus, a myth we celebrate each year at this time by giving gifts, mirroring the gifts (resources) given to Mary and the fatherless newborn child Jesus. The pill changed all this. It didn’t liberate women, because women’s psychology didn’t change. The philosopher Schopenhauer wrote that after sex, a woman wants to embrace and hold her man, the man just wants to go to sleep (no doubt, to dream of sex with other young fertile women). Men no longer had to be held accountable for the sex act, as a woman was no longer left potentially high and dry, holding a baby. Men thought the sex war had ended, and gleefully left the battlefield with their cocks in their hands. In fact, the war was about to take on an ever greater brutality, with only one side fighting it.

In terms of political movements comparable to feminism, men have thus far come up with the Men’s Rights Movement and MGTOW, and more broadly the Manosphere, and even more broadly I guess, the alt-right.

The men’s rights movement had promising beginnings, with even its very founder – the Victorian thinker Ernest Belfort Bax – being a free love advocate, railing in his extensive writings against such things as feminist definitions of sexual assault, and the raising of the age of consent (their ‘favourite krank’ as he put it). This continued into the modern age when, for the first time, the sexual upheavals of the 60’s and 70’s were analyzed from the point of view of men, by ‘men’s rights’ authors such as David Thomas, Neil Lyndon, and Lionel Tiger, and the online MRM founder Angry Harry. The latter three, certainly, recognized the pill as fundamentally changing the balance of power between the sexes, and all of these early MRAs were positive in their view of male sexuality that had been diminished by the feminist response to the sexual revolution (and all of them recognized intuitively that feminism was responding to the sexual revolution of the 60’s that had liberated men more than women, not creating it as per the standard narrative).

Since then, as we have documented here recently, the MRM has turned into a curious mirror of victimhood feminism, not merely in the sense of being a male version of feminism, but actually validating feminist sexual morality and demanding ‘a piece of the pie’ in terms of shared and equal victimhood in a regrettably free sexual marketplace.

The MGTOW appears on the surface more promising. At least MGTOWs, who reject women completely, aren’t likely to suffer the fate of the MRM in being infected and taken over by female ‘sympathetic’ parasites such as the ‘Honey Badgers’. Unlike MRAs, MGTOWs do also propose a sexual strategy in response to the changed sexual universe men and women now inhabit. Go your own way and leave women behind. However, there are two major problems with the MGTOW approach. Firstly, it seems more like an admission of defeat on the part of men, rather than a new battle tactic in response to the changed formations of the enemy (feminism). If men can no longer fight on the sexual battlefield, it’s time to leave it. Secondly, MGTOWs tend to be a little short on details of how men, especially young horny men, are actually supposed to lead a sexually fulfilling life in the absence of women and girls. They don’t tend to talk about porn much, and certainly don’t seem to rage against the ever increasing criminalization of porn. Maybe they think we should just castrate ourselves, or think about puppies, or Margaret Thatcher, every time a sexual thought enters our head? The one exception to this rule is sex robots. MGTOWs like to talk about sex robots..A LOT! If you subscribe to any of the leading MGTOWs or even the ones with a dozen subscribers, every other video now is about sex robots and how sexbots will lead to the MGTOW sextopia. And fair play to them, they do appear to recognize that feminists such as Kathleen Richardson are trying desperately hard to ban sex robots (for obvious reasons).

A third issue with MGTOWs is that it all seems to be a little too much like the feminist modus operandi – older, less sexually valuable individuals telling their younger more sexually valuable (and viable) rivals that sex is wicked, that it will lead to harm, that we’re only telling you this to protect you etc. Not that I believe that MGTOWs are hypocrites or actively trying to stop young people having sex out of bitterness and rivalry, as femihags are doing, but let’s just say it’s easy to be an MGTOW when you’re an old unattractive fart like me who women, and especially young hotties, don’t want anymore.

The Manosphere and the ‘alt-right’ have pretty much gone the same way as the MRM – heavily influenced by ‘sympathetic’ and invariably conservative women (the alt-right are currently having this battle with ‘tradhots’ – at least, unlike MRAs who are supposed to actually be a specifically MEN’S movement, the alt-rightists like RooshV recognize the danger of letting women speak for them).

Some readers may remember a time when Ferdinand Bardemu, the webmaster of InMalaFide and one of the founders of the Mansophere, would heavily promote this site on his weekly link dump (and I’m eternally grateful to old Ferd). Then Ferdinand Bardemu turned into Matt Forney, an ultra-traditionalist who wanted a piece of the growing alt-right action, and who recognized that being sympathetic to such taboo issues as the age of consent would be near suicide, as Milo later discovered.

Heartiste/Roissy, another founder of the Mansophere, also bravely and explicitly spoke up on issues such as paedohysteria and the age of consent, and is still bravely doing so, even if tempered a little (30 year old men dating late teens ‘icky’???).

The alt-right was indeed very promising as a possible pro male sexuality movement. After all, it has an openly gay Englishman who boasts of sucking black cocks as its nominal head. It grew as a young conservative male’s alternative to traditional mainstream establishment Conservatism/Republicism – recognizing the bullshit of the Left as regards transgender rights and anti-male sexuality feminism, and seeking some form of middle-ground between the wisdom of traditionalism and the realities of the changed post-pill sexual landscape for men. Finally, a possible men’s movement that sought to create a genuine new male sexual morality unconstrained by outdated female orientated traditionalism whilst sticking two fingers up at feminism and so called ‘progressivism’. Sadly, as you would expect from an American dominated conservative movement, it has descended back into traditionalism and now alt-righters spend most of their time accusing Democrats and left-wingers of being ‘paedophiles’, apparently so brain dead that it came as a genuine surprise when their own sort – such as Roy Moore – inevitably started facing the same accusations.

American politics is now conducted akin to the thinking of World War One generals. A Republican will consider that if the last man in the USA not imprisoned for paedophilia or sex crimes is a Republican supporter, then that will mean that the Republicans have won.

And finally, a brief word on PUAs. PUAs again promised to bring something new to the table. A new sexual strategy in the new sexual landscape was finally being promoted by men for men. Further, a lot of the leading PUAs, such as our old friend Krauser PUA, were political and anti-feminist. In the end, it brought nothing. PUAs didn’t want to actively fight feminists because all this ‘red pill’ shit would ‘lower their frame’ and threaten to reduce their 1 in 100 lay ratios to something as beta as 1 in 125. Never mind that one day very soon talking to women in the street will be illegal, and it in fact might be in the UK by the end of next year). Most of these PUAs are so clueless and unaware of anything but their relentless pursuit of HB6 pussy that they will actually be non-plussed when they run up to a woman from behind with the ‘Yad stop’ and have their scripted negging routine rudely interrupted by the hand of a copper on their shoulder. Further, when PUAs are aware and politicized, they are inevitably traditionalist, and somehow perform mental gymnastics to accommodate this ultra-traditionalism with a life devoted to trying to pump and dump conservative teenage virgins in Eastern Europe.

So MRAs, MGTOWs, Alt-Righters and PUAs have all disappointed and we still await a movement by men and for men that actually puts forward a positive sexual path for all men in an era when sex and reproduction (and hence rationally speaking sex and morality) have and increasingly will be divorced, and that is furthermore prepared to fight for it.


The History of Feminist ‘Child Sex Abuse’ Laws in the MRM

It is rather odd in the extreme, that the more absurd and draconian feminist ‘child sex abuse’ laws and punishments become, the less the Men’s Rights Movement is willing to consider them as men’s rights issues. 100 years ago, and men who had sex with 14 year old girls were only prosecuted if the girl claimed she had been ‘seduced’. Yet Ernest Belfort Bax – the first MRA in history – felt this was enough to make it a serious men’s rights issue. 25 years ago, and only men who had sex with pre-pubescent girls had the book thrown at them by the legal system, and yet David Thomas – the first modern men’s rights author – felt this was enough to devote almost an entire chapter to in his classic men’s rights work ‘Not Guilty : The Case In Defence of Men’. 15 years ago, and punishments for looking at illicit child porn images were typically only a caution or a few months in prison, whereas now people are being sent down for years and then put on the sex offender’s register for life. Yet Angry Harry – the founder of the online men’s rights movement – still felt it important to raise the issue of such feminist ‘thought crimes’ as a men’s rights issue.

ernest belfort baxErnest Belfort Bax is recognized as the first ‘MRA’ in history.  Writing in Edwardian and Victorian England, the prolific Bax was a philosopher, socialist, literary critic, and free love advocate, as well as the first writer to discuss at length discrimination against men by an increasingly feminist society.

In a short essay entitled ‘The Monstrous Regiment of Womanhood‘ – he expounds an argument that modern MRAs, and especially the Honey Badgers, would certainly recognize :

But the most atrocious instances of sex-privilege occur in
connection with the Criminal Law Amendment Act
of 1885. Whilst the abduction of a girl under
eighteen, or the seduction of one under sixteen,
involves the man concerned in serious penalties, the
girl or the woman gets off scot free, and this even
though she may have been the inciting party. This
is carried to the extent that a young boy of fourteen
may be himself induced to commit a sexual offence
by a girl just under sixteen — that is to say, nearly
two years his senior — and he can be sentenced to
imprisonment, followed by several years in a re-
formatory, whilst the law holds the inciting girl
absolutely guiltless. The villainy of such an enact-
ment is unparalleled, more particularly when one
considers that a girl approaching sixteen is often
practically a woman, whilst a boy of fourteen is
seldom more than a child.

However, it is clear from other writings of Bax, that his objection to the feminist age of consent was not merely its discriminatory application in relation to the double standard. Like most anti-feminists of the time, he regarded the feminist raising of the age of consent as a blackmailer’s charter. For example in another essay of 1908 entitled ‘Ernest Belfort Bax Replies to his Feminist Critics’, he writes :

That the present “Votes for Women” movement is only a phase of the anti-man crusade which Feminism has been carrying on for nigh two generations past with the aid of the Press, is shown, not only by the persistent efforts to represent “ man-made laws “ as unjust to women, but by the incidental remarks of Suffragette leaders in which the sex animus is shown, no concealment being made of the intention to use the suffrage for rivetting on man the chains of legalised female oppression. For example, Mrs. Pankhurst recently represented one of the functions of emancipated “Womanhood” to be the handing over of the luckless male to the Female blackmailer by raising the “age of consent” above sixteen!! The allusion made at the same time to the “daughters of the working class “ is a piece of demagogy too thin to deceive anyone as to the venomous sex-spite animating this outrageous proposal.

Elsewhere, in the essay ‘Problems of Man, Mind and Morals’, he mocks the feminist obsession with raising the age of consent, and points out the absurdity involved in simultaneously claiming that teenage girls need protecting from the sexual advances of men AND that girls are mature enough to be given the vote :

If there is one demand which is popular with the Feminists, it is for raising the age of consent from sixteen to eighteen or twenty-one years,at which latter age, presumably, the right to the Franchise, if conceded, would come into operation. They are therefore evidently of opinion that the woman who has only just ceased to need the protection of the law in the control of her own body becomes immediately fully qualified to have a voice in the management of public affairs!

In his classic work ‘The Fraud of Feminism‘, published in 1913, he similarly refers to it as ‘that favourite crank of the feminists’ :

“That favourite crank of the Feminist, of raising the age of consent with the result of increasing the number of victims of the designing young female should speak for itself to every unbiased person.”

I have still only read a handful of his numerous works, but there is no doubt that these quotes demonstrate that Bax, like every anti-feminist of the period, was opposed to the feminist raising of the age of consent. It had been raised from 13 to 16 in the 1885 Criminal Amendment Act, after years of lobbying from the feminist dominated ‘Social Purity Movement’. The act also criminalized prostitution and made homosexuality a crime punishable by death. It was based on a feminist/tabloid engineered moral panic over the myth of ‘white slavery’ – young teens being trafficked into forced prostitution. Feminists have always had the same modus operandi. Furthermore, it can be argued that the age of consent was the feminist’s original rasion d’etre (and still is today) – hence the comments by Bax on their obsession with it.
Victorian feminists/suffragettes did not originally campain for the vote as an end in itself – they had already been lobbying for anti-male sex laws, such as raising the age of consent, and started to demand the vote as a means to obtaining those ends. There is probably no single law that is more ‘feminist’ than the age of consent. There is almost certainly no single feminist law that has ruined the lives of more men and boys than the age of consent (of 16/18). Yet MRAs today are so stupid and/or cowardly, that they denounce any other MRA who question it as being ‘feminist infiltrators’.

not guilty david thomasDavid Thomas published ‘Not Guilty : The Case in Defence of Men’, in 1993, possibly the first modern work making the case for men’s rights. Like Bax, he wasn’t afraid to present arguments that today would have gotten him denounced and slandedred as a ‘pedo acceptance advocate’ by the Honey Badger guardians of the contemporary Good Men Project Men’s Rights Movement.

Whilst reading the passages below, keep in mind that the author was a father, arguing mainly from the perspective that this early paedohysteria was a feminist attack upon fathers and the family, as well as male sexuality in general.  Notice that the chapter almost assumes without needing to state explicitly that any intelligent person reading, with a support for men’s rights and a distaste in radical feminism, would agree upon a definition of sexual abuse involving only the forced penetration of a child by an adult.  It is to be noted that today’s MRAs, more often incels and MGTOWs rather than ‘father’s rights activists’, cannot even tolerate discussion of a man being jailed as a ‘paedophile’ for bringing a 17 year old ‘child’ to orgasm as a men’s rights issue, or even men being jailed for looking at pictures of 25 year old women with ‘small breasts’ under feminist ‘child porn’ laws.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

“….By then an unlikely alliance of anti-family and anti-patriarchy ideologues, fundamentalist religious fantasists and misguided media celebrities, ever eager for a bandwagon upon which to jump, had managed to persuade the nation that one in three children suffered from sexual abuse administered by men.  What they tended not to reveal was that their conclusions were a deliberate twisting of research which defined abuse in an extremely general sense.  Far from it consisting exclusively of the forcible intercourse which most of us tend to imagine, however disgustedly, in these circumstances, the term was applied to any unwanted sexual experience of any kind.  Any little girl who had seen a flasher in the park had, by that definition, been abused.  Any little boy whose maths teacher had put his hand on his knee had been abused.
Penetration by a penis formed a small proportion of total cases of abuse.  Of those cases, many occured between step-fathers and teenage daughters.  Of the rest, most involved vaginal, rather than anal penetration.  Only a minute fraction within a fraction comprised the activity alledged by the doctors at Cleveland, to wit, the anal penetration of small boys and girls by their fathers.

In my view, the obsessive search for evidence of such perverse behaviour tells you more about the people doing the searching than it does about those being searched.  But, lest anyone doubt the harm that such obsession may bring, let me quote from a letter that was published in the Solicitors’ Family Law Association Newsletter, November 1991.  It was written by a lawyer, whose name and gender were not revealed, although I presume from the account given in the letter that she is female.

 

“I was sexually abused over a period of approximately two and a half years by a male near relative who had been adopted into my mother’s family.  The sexual abuse has, so far as I am aware, had little discernible effect upon me.  The discovery of the sexual abuse and the trauma of the investigation by professionals have had a profound impact upon me.

When Esther Rantzen introduced her Childline, with the attendant television programmes, I watched, and found to my shock, that the description by one of the participants of the medical examination she had following the discovery of sexual abuse caused me to cry uncontrollably.

I will never forget the ordeal I was put through at the age of seven.  I will never forget the feelings of shame, degradation and intense physical invasion when examined by a paediatrician.  I have no doubt that the same paediatrician would, if questioned, have stressed the consideration, tact, and understanding he showed to me on examination.

My views were not sought as to whether I should be examined.  I doubt if I would have had the knowledge or understanding to express or hold my own views.  In retrospect, of course, I have strong views, but those are formed only with the knowledge of hindsight.  I was seven : these were ‘grown ups’ who knew best what should be done with me.

How much needless suffering is caused by children who have been sexually abused by the professionals?…In my own view, the sexual abuse I suffered, was to quote a judge in a rape trial, ‘a pretty tepid affair’.  The subsequent sexual abuse I suffered at the hands of a paediatrician will live me for the rest of my life.”


———————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Later in the same Chapter, David Thomas continues :

“It is generally agreed that a child who is compelled to have sex with an adult against his or her own will suffers lasting damage.  Certainly that would be a common-sense view, and one with which, as a parent, I would instinctively agree.  In August 1992, however, the New Statesman published a special issue devoted to opinions that were politically incorrect.  One of its articles, by Edward Barrie, suggested that the after-effects of sexual activity might be less traumatic to children than had previously been supposed.  In particular, he said :
“An enormous investigation was carried out for the German police by Dr. Michael Baurmann, who reported his findings in 1983.  His team carefully assessed 8,058 young people of both sexes (more girls than boys) involved in illegal sexual relationships.  They found that in many cases no harm was done – neither emotional nor physical.  About 1,000 boys under the age of 14 took part in the study, and not one of those was found to have been harmed.  Harm to the girls, when it occurred, was sometimes (not always) a result of the sex act itself, and sometimes the result of heavy-handedness by police, parents and others in the aftermath.  Bauermann has shown conclusively that a child may well become a victim purely because victimisation is expected.  More recent police department follow-up studies have confirmed the findings.”
Those findings, astounding though they seem at first glance, tally with the experiences of the solicitor whose letter about her experiences of abuse that I reproduced earlier in the chapter.  They make me question whether the important social issue which both British and American society needs to confront is not abuse itself, but our apparent obsession with it.

Barrie remarks : “Perhaps most sinister of all, a young woman university graduate working on a doctoral thesis and pursuing the ‘harm done’ aspects of abuse, with help from….overseas experts, was denied a grant unless she came up with findings that would help the authorities ‘detect peadophiles’.  She found this distortion of her views unacceptable.”

At this point the truth is clouded with exaggeration and confusion that one cannot do anything other than speculate about what is really going on.  But when celebrities que up to reveal ever more lurid accounts of their childhood experiences, or publicise abuse helplines, the sickness to which they bear witness may just be the profound suspicion with which the Anglo-Saxon world regards sex.  That, and the belief that the quickest route to public approval is to label oneself a victim – even if one happens to be a millionaire rock star, or a candidate for the presidency.

Consider, specifically, the determination with which some women seek to paint a picture of rampant sexual abuse, practiced entirely by men.  Is this motivated by an altruistic desire to cure a social malaise, or just a fearful hostility towards male sexuality as a whole?  Are they simply projecting their own terror onto children?  Is there anything to choose between the dysfunction that causes an adult to seek out sex with children, and the dysfunction that persuades a doctor or social worker that she is surrounded, on every side, by a raging sea of sex abuse?”

Angry HarryAngry Harry was and always will be, however much Paul ‘Ego’ Elam resents it, the founder of the online men’s rights movement. Although Harry was a conservative (libertarian), and made it clear that he was broadly in favour of the present age of consent, on multiple occasions he also made clear that he felt sentences were too harsh, feminist definitions such as ‘child rape’ for ‘consensual sex’ inflated and misleading, and above all, that paedohysteria was an expression of anti-male hatred. As I pointed out recently, he also crticised feminist child porn laws, referring to them as ‘thought crimes‘.

Most importantly of all, Angry Harry was vehmenently opposed to the billion dollar feminist abuse industry, a money making monster that first Paul Elam and then the ‘Honey Badgers’ have all happily validated and sought a piece of the financial cake in through the sexual victimization of boys and men.

http://www.angryharry.com/esDoWeNeedAnAbuseIndustry.htm

The organism has become a monster, and it is feeding off the broken lives that it, itself, is creating. The abuse industry needs to be cut down to size so that it only has the wherewithal to deal with serious cases of abuse. As with most things in life, it is all a question of balance.

And the laws and the various definitions also need adjustment so that innocent people – and also those who have not done anything seriously bad – are not dragged through such a horrible mill.

Once again, it is all a question of balance.

In particular, Angry Harry repeatedly warned of the dangers of victim labelling, especially young children, and telling them that they will be damaged for life as a result of their ‘abuse’. This is the opposite of what Paul Elam, Hannah Wallen et al. are doing. In fact, Paul Elam and Angry Harry publicly fell out over this issue and Harry was only saved from being booted out of the movement he created because Elam reluctantly had to accept that the rest of the MRM would not allow such treatment of a figure loved and respected by everybody (I’m not sure if 90% of the current ‘MRAs’ even know who Angry Harry was).

Of course, victims of abuse – children or adults – might be horrendously damaged by their various ordeals, but when those in the abuse industry make blanket pronouncements suggesting that all cases of ‘abuse’ lead inevitably to significant permanent psychological harm, then they are talking absolute nonsense and damaging the most vulnerable victims in the process.

Most unwanted sexual abuse, for example, is probably a bit like having a car accident of some sort.

It might cause long term permanent damage – e.g. a major road crash – or virtually nothing at all – e.g. a minor scratch on the hood.

Most acts of ‘abuse’ as currently defined by those working in the abuse industry are, like most car accidents, relatively trivial. It is those working in the abuse industry who always try to make matters sound far worse in order to gain extra funding – and also in order to demonise men.

And, in doing this, not only does it damage people’s relationships, it causes significant harm to victims of both serious and trivial ‘abuse’.

Harry actually wrote countless articles on this subject and usefully collected them all through an image banner link in his sidebar. Oddly, I can’t see that anymore anywhere on his site. As his partner appears to have unwisely given ownership of his site to Paul Elam, I sincerely hope no acts of revisionism have taken place.

After Harry – How did feminist child sex abuse laws become off topic to the MRM?

We’ve seen that discussions on the validity of feminist ‘child sex abuse’ laws, which are now completely taboo in the Men’s Rights Movement, were seen as almost taken for granted as mens’ rights issues by..

The first Men’s Rights Activist Ernest Belfort Bax.

The first Men’s Rights author of the modern period David Thomas.

The founder of the online men’s rights movement Angry Harry.

So how has it come about, not much more than a decade or so after Angry Harry first went online and set in motion the explosive growth of the modern men’s rights movement, that it is now completely taboo to even refer to feminist ‘child sex abuse’ laws as men’s rights issues, except in relation to the problem of false accusations?

One figure looms large – Paul Elam. A person who admitted spending a significant proportion of donations received at AVoiceforMen on lavishly furnishing his home, Elam now makes a living off of the back of his MRA validation of the feminist child abuse industry by working as a psychological counselor for men. The fact that he recently referred to Eivind Berge as ‘a nutter’ – a man who the Norwegian authorities tried and failed to have declared insane for his men’s rights beliefs – shows just how much expertise he actually has in the field of male mental health (or real ‘men’s rights’). The MRM was little more than a personal vanity project for Elam. He even tried to rebrand it, Good Men Project style, as the ‘Men’s Human Rights Movement’ to distance himself from the 100 years that had gone before from Bax to Harry, to make it his own and to make it acceptable to feminists, and especially, the billion dollar feminist abuse industry. When that failed, he ‘sexed up’ the movement by employing wave after wave of middle-aged femiservative staff who quickly became known as the ‘Honey Badgers’.

Hannah Wallen sexy honey badger mra
Paul Elam attempted to appeal to ‘MGTOWs’ by ‘sexing up’ the MHRM through employing dozens of ‘Honey Badger’ females and transgenders such as Hannah Wallen

Since Elam semi-retired in order to coin it in as a male ‘therapist’, the Honey Badgers have been left in virtual control of the MRM. As you would expect, these middle-aged women who feel betrayed by feminism for allowing their husbands to divorce them for younger females, will not countenance any attempts by ‘pedo acceptance advocates’ to speak about the age of consent, or to raise the issue of a million men being on the sex offenders register in the USA alone, increasingly officially classed as Untermenschen. Their only concession is to allow MRAs to campaign for adding a few thousand horny female teachers onto the register, and thereby validate both the feminist age of consent, and the feminist billion dollar sex abuse industry.

More broadly, the center of power in the MRM has shifted from its historical home of London to the puritanical USA. Ernest Belfort Bax, David Thomas, and Angry Harry were all British, and all based (at least for a time) in London. Not to compare myself to these greats, but if you are convinced by my arguments here that inflated feminist ‘child sex abuse’ laws are fundamental to men’s rights issues, as the first MRA, the first modern MRA author, and the founder of the online MRM all clearly felt they were, then there is also an argument to be made that I am the last MRA – also British and formerly based in London – at least in that line. The last MRA (along with Eivind Berge, Steve Moxon (also British), Scarecrow and a handful of others) who can recognize that any feminist law that harms men is a men’s rights issue.

As I mentioned earlier in this article, in the early days of the modern men’s rights movement, opposition to discussion of the age of consent etc. would come almost entirely from the father’s rights faction who, along with Harry, built the movement. But even there it was rarely as vicious as the attacks that today come from the women and transngeders who have infiltrated and taken over the movement (the ‘Honey Badgers’) and the new crop of MRAs who are simply mirror feminists, seeking to grab all the victimhood for men that women previously enjoyed, including ‘sex abuse’. Father’s rights activists were men who had their lives turned upside down by the feminist court system. Men’s rights for them was about fighting real injustice and defending men from the abuses of the feminist legal system. It wasn’t about telling men who had had a little too much to drink before they banged a girl at a party that they had been ‘raped’, or obsessing with victim labelling 17 year old boys who had gotten lucky with a 25 year old female teacher. And if you weren’t an angry father, just a male who opposed the demonization of men, it was obvious (at least in the not so puritanical GB) that feminist child abuse laws and definitions were wildly inflated.

It should also be noted that 15 or 20 years ago, feminist sex abuse hysteria was still centered on the father as being the most common child sex abuser (of his daughter – which statistically, is in fact the case). The internet driven hysteria over the paedophile bogeyman always online, always waiting to groom and corrupt your teenage daughter, took over from the image of the father as being the typical abuser. Father’s rights activists were hardly likely to object to this.

What’s also changed over the last 20 years is the sheer global insane intensity of paedohysteria. Twenty years ago it was possible to speak about these things rationally and engage in relatively cool headed debate. Now you are almost literally taking your life in your hands if you put your head above the parapet, as Evind Berge – so proud of being a public MRA – recently discovered. Twenty years ago it was almost fashionable for liberals like David Futrelle to mock the satanic child abuse panics of the 90’s. Nobody would seriously accuse you of being a satanic child abuser yourself. Today, question feminist child porn laws that lead to men being imprisoned for looking at pictures of teens in biknis, and it’s assumed that you yourself must be ‘looking at kiddy porn’. Of course, the opposite is far more likely to be true, especially if you call yourself a ‘men’s rights activist’. It is surely suspicous enough that you are a men’s rights activist and don’t speak out on these issues, evern more so if you violently object that feminists jailing men for looking at pictures of clothed young women are not and never will be a men’s rights issue. (Especially when, unbelievably, a disturbing number of these ‘MRAs’ choose to have anime pictures of cute skimpely dressed 9 year old girls as their avatars).

The fact that as these feminist child abuse laws become ever more insane and result in ever more male lives being ruined, the less it becomes a men’s rights issue, makes no sense at all. One can only assume that most of the ‘MRAs’ who are willing to denounce real MRAs like myself and Eivind Berge as ‘pedo acceptance advocates’, and who are not a ‘honey badger’, are almost certainly acting from self-preservation at the thought of law enforcement looking at their browsing history.

I will close with some words quoted by David Thomas in his classic Men’s Rights book.

In my view, the obsessive search for evidence of such perverse behaviour tells you more about the people doing the searching than it does about those being searched.


Eivind Berge Wins Wrongful Imprisonment Appeal

Good news regarding our old friend Eivind Berge in Norway. Eivind has been successful in his appeal against wrongful imprisonment in 2012 (over alleged incitement to harm police officers through his blog writings) and the court awarded him over $4,000 in compensation. He has posted his reaction here :

MRA Veteran ‘Factory’ on the Killing of Angry Harry’s Cause by AVfM

MRA veteran ‘Factory’ in an eloquent YouTube rant on the corruption of the men’s rights movement by lefties, manginas, SJWs, and abuse hysteria validators at AVoiceforMen and Reddit/r/mensrights. Things have gotten so bad that the likes of Paul Elam now slander our old friend Bernard Chapin as the ‘right-wing equivalent of David Futrelle’, whilst Elam’s partner in crime Dean Esmay accuses MRAs who criticize feminist sex hysteria of being ‘rape apologists’.

Roosh V Wins the Battle of Montreal

Roosh V might not be everbody’s cup of tea, but it’s clear that nobody on the planet is doing as much to take it to the feminists as he is. The ‘Battle of Montreal’ might prove to be pivotal – it showed that manosphere tactics built up over the years (including here) such as standing one’s ground, fighting fire with fire, and shaming the shamers through Google Bombing, can prevail against the very worst that the SJWs have to offer (and in their very heartland too).

Telegraph Writer on the Edward Heath Witch Hunt

Excellent article on the Edward Heath witch hunt taking place in the UK now :

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/crime/11784844/The-Edward-Heath-witch-hunt-is-the-stuff-of-Hitlers-dreams.html

“…If it wasn’t so horrific, all this would be entertaining. Or maybe not entertaining, but illuminating. There is something fascinating about actually being able to sit back and watch all this. To see this form of collective national psychosis playing out around you.

But it is horrific. Terrifying, actually. This is the second time in my life when I’ve thought to myself “I can see how it happens”. Where a McCarthy, or even a Hitler, could come from. Here, on my own doorstep.

The first time was that week after Diana died. But that was only for a week. This is weekly now. Brittan. Heath. We still have the Janner show trial to come.

One phone call. One letter. One press release. That’s all it takes now. “


TyphonBlue Demands Equal Injustice for All! (Again)

You may have thought the recent and most praiseworthy campaign by our men’s rights brothers in Canada was about confronting and attacking the shameful demonsiation of men as potential rapists and sex predators. Not so according to TyphonBlue, who has been chosen by the Men’s Human Rights Movement to explain the campaign to mainstream journalists (http://cjme.com/story/updated-mens-rights-posters-pop-saskatoon/121353):

A Voice for Men is behind the posters here and Alison Tieman, who spoke for the group from Kelvington, said the group has the same message as Men’s Rights Edmonton.

We would like to see an honest look at statistics about sexual assault. We would also like to see campaigns that reflect all sexual assault victims,” said Tieman, who has been a part of the counter-feminist movement for 15 years.

The Edmonton posters that were put up by Men’s Rights Edmonton are a take on the widely-known “Don’t be that Guy” campaign against sexual assault. They read, “Don’t be that Girl…Just because you regret a one night stand doesn’t mean it wasn’t consensual. Lying about sexual assault = a crime.”

“We are supporting the posters that were put up because they draw attention to the fact that the original posters single out men—all men—as potential rapists,” Tieman said.

“The original campaign posters are telling men not to be that guy which suggests that if they hadn’t told them, they would be that guy.”

The original campaign posters encourage female victims of sexual assault to come forward. Tieman said they prevent male victims to come forward because it pins sexual assault, as a whole, on men

Perhaps when she says ‘look again at the stastistics on sexual assualt’ she means looking at the leader of the MHRM’s view that 1 in 6 boys has been raped, and yet only 1 in 1653 women have been raped.

Of course, to anyone with a brain cell, the only practical result of encouraging the victim labelling of boys and men as sex abuse victims is to lead to many more homosexual men to be demonised, incarcerated, and raped and beaten as subhuman nonces – perhaps more even than when homosexuality itself was illegal. That, and the validation of the trillion dollar feminist child abuse industry which criminalises normal male sexuality, and which is leading to a chilling leglislative creep that appears to have no end in sight, and which has already resulted in overcrowding in British prisons and the construction of specialist death camps ‘sex offender’ jails in countries such as France.


Protecting Boys From Sexual Abuse – A Men’s Rights 5 Point Plan

Placing the prevention of the sexual abuse of boys at the top of the men’s rights agenda seems like a no brainer to me.  First of all we save boys from a lifetime of abuse, trauma, and destruction.  Period.  Secondly, it will give mainstream legitimacy to our movement.  Given that the protection of girls has historically been one of the leading activist goals of feminism since its origins in the 19th century Social Purity Movements, highlighting the sexual abuse of boys will demonstrate to the world that the men’s human rights movement is simply the male equivalent of feminism and part of the mainstream progressive human rights movement.  Thirdly, it will attract more women into the movement, something that we all agree is needed, and once again, will provide legitimacy to our cause.  Good women care about children, and putting the protection of boys at the top our agenda will attract the sort of women that we need, and that our society needs.  Finally, highlighting the sexual abuse of boys will increase donations from the public and possibly even win our cause funding from government.  There is a reason that child protection agencies such as the NSPCC spend a disproportionate use of resources in tackling sexual abuse, even when their own research tells them that problems such as bullying and parental divorce are affecting children much more.  Sex sells, and the sexual abuse of children sells most of all.  It would be foolish of us as a pragmatic and progressive human rights movement to ignore that fact.  The inevitable cash flow can then be used to both prevent the abuse of boys, as well as a diverse range of other men’s human rights concerns ranging from fairness in family courts to awareness of gay rights.

That stopping the sexual abuse of boys may be a no brainer, but how to incorporate that goal into successful Men’s Human Rights Activism is a more difficult challenge.  As a preliminary to further debate, I suggest the following 5 point plan :

  1. We commence a campaign with a snappy logo (such as ‘1 in 4 – Boys Count Too!’) together with banners and buttons linking to a donation page and encourage all genuine Men’s Human Rights Sites to display them.
  2. We demand that age of consent laws reflect the fact that boys mature later than girls, physically, emotionally, and sexually.  Feminists performed one of their few good deeds when they raised the age of consent from 12 to 16 or 18, but such ages do not reflect the reality that boys need protecting further.  We therefore propose that the age of consent be raised to 21, for both boys and girls (this is necessary to ensure equality).
  3. We reach out to feminists and feminist child protection groups in an effort to build bridges and to demonstrate that we share a common goal – the protection of childhood innocence.  Gender politics should never stand in the way of protecting the most vulnerable in our society – girls AND boys.
  4. We commission University research (paid with by, say, 10% of our donations) to prove the already demonstrated statistic that 1 in 4 boys have been sexually abused, including non-contact sexual abuse*.  We also fund the training of specialist therapists who are able to understand and treat the particular trauma that teenage boys go through when molested by their female teachers.
  5. We pursue a policy of total exclusion on those supposed men’s rights activists who question the sexual abuse of boys or girls and who call for discussion on such nauseating and suicidal topics as the age of consent.  These monsters are hijacking our cause and have no further place in a progressive men’s human rights movement.

Interesting factoids of the day – annual income of leading UK children’s charities :

NSPCC : largest ‘child protection’ charity, deals almost entirely in the sexual abuse of teenage girls by male sexual predators, with the physical abuse of boys and girls by their fathers a distant second. Everything else is ignored. Total Yearly Income : £ 135 million

Children with Cancer : One of the largest children’s cancer charities in the world.  Spends money on helping children with cancer lead better pain free lives, as well as funding research on fighting cancer.  Total Yearly Income : £ 11 million

According to the NSPCC’s own research, bullying is by far and away the biggest problem facing children and young people today, and according to young people themselves.  Despite this, the NSPCC rarely promotes anti-bullying campaigns, and whenever they do mention bullying, it is almost always in relation to supposed ‘sexual bullying’ or sexual behaviour that might ‘lead to bullying’, such as ‘sexting’.  There are also very few charities in the UK devoted to bullying.  One of the few that I found posted latest accounts revealing a yearly income of just £626.

Act against Bullying : One of the very few anti-bullying children’s charities in the UK that hasn’t closed down in the last couple of years due to lack of donations and funding.  Total Yearly Income : £626  (yes that’s just 626 pounds, compared to the 135 million pounds that the NSPCC, which deals almost exclusively with teenage sex, draws in).

Lesson learned?  Any MRA who thinks we aren’t going jump at this cash cow like a repressed Catholic schoolgirl finding a dildo under her bed, is living on another planet.

1 in 6 men and boys experience sexual abuse

TyphonBlue on Eivind Berge : (His) Sexual Frustration Must Be the ‘Processing of Overwhelming Sexual Trauma’!!

Our friend Eivind Berge alerted us to the following comments made by the increasingly popular ‘femRA’ TyphonBlue 2 or 3 years back, and I thought it deserved highlighting as a post in itself, just to illustrate what kind of cancer the Men’s Rights Movement is allowing itself to be infected with.

The comments were made nearly 3 years ago when Eivind was ‘INCEL’ (involuntarily celibate).  In response to another female commentator stating that Eivind was ‘fucking HOT’, TyphonBlue gave her own radical feminist take on Eivind’s sexual frustration :

IMHO it sounds like he’s processing (badly) some sort of overwhelming sexual trauma from his past. I’m not saying that disqualifies him from being hot, but likely off-limits for the duration.

Now if, for example, the militant atheism movement was being accused of racism  for describing the Koran as a work of superstition, they might be tempted to embrace some dark skinned ‘apostates’ into their ranks – former Muslims who had renounced their previous faith and now fervently claimed that all religions are evil backward nonsense.  Atheists might even be tempted to give such apostates a high profile within their movement, perhaps more than they deserve by merit, truth be told, simply in order to deflect any accusations of racism against Muslims and possible links to White Nationalism or other ‘hate groups’ (through illustrating that Muslims are not a race but followers of a belief system, and it is only the belief system that atheists have a problem with).

But whatever you think about the Militant Atheism movement, you can be pretty sure that they would have sufficient critical faculties to be able to smell that something was up if any of those born again atheists curiously appeared to hold on to one or two of their former radical Islamist ideas – such as that homosexuals will burn in eternal fire.  Not only that, but if they held that the belief that homosexuals will burn in eternal fire should be a key assumption of atheism, and that atheists should raise money (including from Muslims) in order to devote more time to spreading the message that homosexuals will be condemned to eternal punishment (and that this promotes atheism and secularist ideals).

It appears that the men’s rights movement is a little different to the atheism movement.

Why would a femRA wish to validate the feminist child sex abuse industry and manufacture millions of fucked up male ‘victims’?  Apart from the obvious well documented (here) reason why a middle-aged woman would wish to deny any possible challenge (from the growing MRM) to the key Sexual Trade Union agenda of child abuse hysteria, the following words of Typhonblue herself may shed a little light on the subject :

In “Women Do Not Benefit: The Science,” I outlined how toxic victimhood limits women and socializes them to undermine their own achievements. Toxic victimhood promotes the perception that women are “acted upon” rather than actors. When a society is promoting toxic victimhood, there is no need to limit women overtly through legal, financial or social restrictions. Instead women will limit themselves through their own mental foot-binding.


David Thomas, Classic Men’s Rights Author, On Child Sex Abuse Hysteria

not guilty david thomasThe following is an excerpt from ‘Not Guilty : The Case in Defence of Men’, by British author David Thomas, one of the first men’s rights books of the modern era (published in 1993).

The excerpt comes from chapter 4 entitled ‘The Myth of the Bad Man’.  Thomas begins by discussing the recent child sex abuse panics that had been imported from the USA, and that had found expression most infamously with the Cleveland abuse scandal.

Whilst reading the passages below, keep in mind that the author was a father, arguing mainly from the perspective that this early paedohysteria was a feminist attack upon fathers and the family, as well as male sexuality in general.  Notice that the chapter almost assumes without needing to state explicitly that any intelligent person reading, with a support for men’s rights and a distaste in radical feminism, would agree upon a definition of sexual abuse involving only the forced penetration of a child by an adult.  It is a testament to the success of feminist paedo-hysteria, along with American puritanism, that less than 20 years later,  it is ‘creepy’ to suggest even that men should not be jailed for years as paedophiles by feminist laws so absurd they define looking at pictures of 30 year old women with small breasts as ‘child abuse’.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

“….By then an unlikely alliance of anti-family and anti-patriarchy ideologues, fundamentalist religious fantasists and misguided media celebrities, ever eager for a bandwagon upon which to jump, had managed to persuade the nation that one in three children suffered from sexual abuse administered by men.  What they tended not to reveal was that their conclusions were a deliberate twisting of research which defined abuse in an extremely general sense.  Far from it consisting exclusively of the forcible intercourse which most of us tend to imagine, however disgustedly, in these circumstances, the term was applied to any unwanted sexual experience of any kind.  Any little girl who had seen a flasher in the park had, by that definition, been abused.  Any little boy whose maths teacher had put his hand on his knee had been abused.

Penetration by a penis formed a small proportion of total cases of abuse.  Of those cases, many occured between step-fathers and teenage daughters.  Of the rest, most involved vaginal, rather than anal penetration.  Only a minute fraction within a fraction comprised the activity alledged by the doctors at Cleveland, to wit, the anal penetration of small boys and girls by their fathers.

In my view, the obsessive search for evidence of such perverse behaviour tells you more about the people doing the searching than it does about those being searched.  But, lest anyone doubt the harm that such obsession may bring, let me quote from a letter that was published in the Solicitors’ Family Law Association Newsletter, November 1991.  It was written by a lawyer, whose name and gender were not revealed, although I presume from the account given in the letter that she is female.

 

“I was sexually abused over a period of approximately two and a half years by a male near relative who had been adopted into my mother’s family.  The sexual abuse has, so far as I am aware, had little discernible effect upon me.  The discovery of the sexual abuse and the trauma of the investigation by professionals have had a profound impact upon me.

When Esther Rantzen introduced her Childline, with the attendant television programmes, I watched, and found to my shock, that the description by one of the participants of the medical examination she had following the discovery of sexual abuse caused me to cry uncontrollably.

I will never forget the ordeal I was put through at the age of seven.  I will never forget the feelings of shame, degradation and intense physical invasion when examined by a paediatrician.  I have no doubt that the same paediatrician would, if questioned, have stressed the consideration, tact, and understanding he showed to me on examination.

My views were not sought as to whether I should be examined.  I doubt if I would have had the knowledge or understanding to express or hold my own views.  In retrospect, of course, I have strong views, but those are formed only with the knowledge of hindsight.  I was seven : these were ‘grown ups’ who knew best what should be done with me.

How much needless suffering is caused by children who have been sexually abused by the professionals?…In my own view, the sexual abuse I suffered, was to quote a judge in a rape trial, ‘a pretty tepid affair’.  The subsequent sexual abuse I suffered at the hands of a paediatrician will live me for the rest of my life.”


———————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Later in the same Chapter, David Thomas continues :

“It is generally agreed that a child who is compelled to have sex with an adult against his or her own will suffers lasting damage.  Certainly that would be a common-sense view, and one with which, as a parent, I would instinctively agree.  In August 1992, however, the New Statesman published a special issue devoted to opinions that were politically incorrect.  One of its articles, by Edward Barrie, suggested that the after-effects of sexual activity might be less traumatic to children than had previously been supposed.  In particular, he said :

“An enormous investigation was carried out for the German police by Dr. Michael Baurmann, who reported his findings in 1983.  His team carefully assessed 8,058 young people of both sexes (more girls than boys) involved in illegal sexual relationships.  They found that in many cases no harm was done – neither emotional nor physical.  About 1,000 boys under the age of 14 took part in the study, and not one of those was found to have been harmed.  Harm to the girls, when it occurred, was sometimes (not always) a result of the sex act itself, and sometimes the result of heavy-handedness by police, parents and others in the aftermath.  Bauermann has shown conclusively that a child may well become a victim purely because victimisation is expected.  More recent police department follow-up studies have confirmed the findings.”

Those findings, astounding though they seem at first glance, tally with the experiences of the solicitor whose letter about her experiences of abuse that I reproduced earlier in the chapter.  They make me question whether the important social issue which both British and American society needs to confront is not abuse itself, but our apparent obsession with it.

Barrie remarks : “Perhaps most sinister of all, a young woman university graduate working on a doctoral thesis and pursuing the ‘harm done’ aspects of abuse, with help from….overseas experts, was denied a grant unless she came up with findings that would help the authorities ‘detect peadophiles’.  She found this distortion of her views unacceptable.”

At this point the truth is clouded with exaggeration and confusion that one cannot do anything other than speculate about what is really going on.  But when celebrities que up to reveal ever more lurid accounts of their childhood experiences, or publicise abuse helplines, the sickness to which they bear witness may just be the profound suspicion with which the Anglo-Saxon world regards sex.  That, and the belief that the quickest route to public approval is to label oneself a victim – even if one happens to be a millionaire rock star, or a candidate for the presidency.

Consider, specifically, the determination with which some women seek to paint a picture of rampant sexual abuse, practiced entirely by men.  Is this motivated by an altruistic desire to cure a social malaise, or just a fearful hostility towards male sexuality as a whole?  Are they simply projecting their own terror onto children?  Is there anything to choose between the dysfunction that causes an adult to seek out sex with children, and the dysfunction that persuades a doctor or social worker that she is surrounded, on every side, by a raging sea of sex abuse?”

 

 

 

 


The Ten Most Powerful People in Men’s Rights

1 : David Futrelle

david futrelle mens rightsIt’s tempting to dismiss David Futrelle as a buffoon, or at worst, an irritant to the men’s rights movement. His ‘critique’ of the radical notion that men and boys are human beings with rights consists of little more than quote harvesting, often of bloggers, or even blog commentators, who have never even identified themselves as MRAs, and whose words are then taken out of context and commonly and deliberately mis-interpreted. The most controversial sound bites from around ‘the manosphere’ are directly quoted and then interspersed with crude mocking and lazy attempts at schoolboy humor.

All this in a blog that some might claim to be a thinly disguised scheme to get David laid with some of his mentally disturbed and emotionally vulnerable female readers ( via ‘Manboobz Meet-Ups’ which Fraudtrelle was organizing within weeks of setting up shop). David also seems to forget that his attitudes to certain controversial issues were a lot different (think polar opposite) back in the 90’s when he authored hundreds of articles that should provide countless hours of fun for any MRAs wishing to experience the joys of malicious quote harvesting for themselves.

And yet there is no denying the impact that this ‘man’ has had on the men’s rights movement already – chiefly through his major ‘coup’ of persuading the Southern Poverty Law Center, a prominent but seemingly corrupted ‘anti-hate group’ organization, to launch an attack upon us. Within a few months, virtually all of the leading sites associated with the men’s rights world, and listed in the SPLC’s ‘hate report’, had either disappeared, changed their name, or embarked upon a more ‘moderate’ editorial policy. No other individual has had such a radical influence upon the MRM in such a short space of time.

Of course, Fraudtrelle’s pernicious power to wreak havoc doesn’t just extend to the men’s rights movement. The SPLC are taking a huge gamble in getting into bed with a man who is walking in the shadow of other notable career male feminists such as Hugo Schwyzer (who once attempted to kill his girlfriend and is a self-confessed serial seducer of his college students) and Kyle Payne (who filmed himself violating a schoolgirl who was in his care, and then downloaded child pornography after being released from prison). Fraudtrelle has clearly persuaded the SLPC that in order to continue being able to pay generous staff salaries, and in the absence or decline of traditional racist ‘hate movements’, the MRM represents a financially lucrative new target. The SPLC still maintains a proud reputation, and even takes credit for effectively destroying the once powerful Klu Klux Klan. Fraudtrelle will not only bring shame upon the SPLC if he ever becomes the latest male feminist involved in a sex abuse scandal, but if the men’s rights movement does continue to grow and become accepted as a legitimate human rights movement, then the decision of the SLPC to follow Fraudtrelle’s advice and target it will have tarnished its own reputation forever.

2 : The Amazing Atheist

This might be another controversial choice, but there is no doubt in my mind that the Amazing Atheist is the one anti-feminist who has the potential right now to transform the Men’s Rights Movement from a collection of angry bloggers waiting passively for the day we get silenced by new ‘hate speech’ laws, to a real million man activist movement which could shake the Gynocracy to its foundations.
The facts speak for themselves. Close to 1/3 of a million subscribers on YouTube (when the top MRAs without breasts have about 5,000 each) the Amazing Atheist can get websites shut down within hours of uploading a video making fun of them.

Led by the Femiservative Dawn Hawkings, PornHarms is the leading anti-pornography lobby group in the world. It has succeeded in getting a written assurance from Mitt Romney that he will do all in his power to completely ban pornography in the USA if he is elected as president. Dawn Hawkings personally believes in the ‘demand and supply’ argument that requires not just the publication of pornography to be outlawed, but the simple viewing of it criminalized as well. If her wishes are granted then virtually every male in the United States of America will be criminalized and face prosecution as a sex offender. You would think this imminent and nightmarish possibility might just be considered a men’s rights issue, but unfortunately it appears not to be….except, thankfully, to the Amazing Atheist. Earlier this year he posted a video on to YouTube – ‘Porn on a Plane‘ – describing Dawn’s experience of reprimanding a fellow passenger for viewing legal pornography on his laptop during the flight. Within hours it had received hundreds of thousands of views, and within one day her lobbying group website PornHarms.com had been taken down.

No other figure associated with the men’s rights movement comes close to possessing this power. Unfortunately, likely due to his primary identification as an atheist, and his (male) sex positive views, as well as perhaps jealousy, he is largely shunned and ignored by the movement that could fast forward itself by a decade in one bound if it only had the sense to embrace him.

See also : It’s Only Sexist When Men Do It (1 1/2 million YouTube views).

3 : Angry Harry

Considering our notoriously fractious nature, the fact that so few (if any) MRAs have anything other than respect for Angry Harry, the father of the modern men’s rights movement, says it all. Although he seems to have taken something of a well-earned break recently from regular involvement in the online movement, it’s likely (and to be hoped) that even if he is semi-retired his rich archives from over a decade of writing on the subject will continue to define what Men’s Rights is and ought to be.

4 : Paul Elam

While Paul isn’t to everybody’s taste, there’s no doubt that it’s already difficult to imagine what the men’s rights movement would currently be without him – if it could even be called a movement. Still the man most likely to successfully transition the MRM from a loose collection of opinionated and heretical bloggers into an effective political force in the offline world.

5 : Heartiste

Similar to and perhaps more so than the Amazing Atheist, Heartiste isn’t an ‘MRA’, or at least not self-identified as one.  But through sheer popularity, his strong anti-feminism, and through writing on issues that relate to surviving as a man in a feminist world, there’s no disputing his influence.

6 : W F Price

Took ‘The-Spearhead’ to the position of number 1 men’s rights site (although he doesn’t accept that it is a ‘men’s rights’ site) within weeks of launching it. Welmer’s thoughtful and varied articles are still essential reading, and the comments section still amongst the most entertaining.

7 : Warren Farrell

Author of the Bible of the Men’s Rights Movement – The Myth of Male Power. Began as a feminist but gradually came to see that society wasn’t acknowledging the disadvantages faced by men, both historically and through the changed gender roles of today.

8 : ‘Ignatiusloyla’

Long time moderator of the Men’s Rights sub-reddit which recently achieved its 50,000th subscriber. For most of its history he ran r/mensrights with only the infamous and clueless Kloo2Yoo as a fellow mod. Attracted criticism for failing to stop feminist trolls and co-opting, whilst simultaneously banning men’s rights activists for ‘misogyny’ or for posting articles discussing clear MRA issues such as absurdly draconian and broadly defined feminist laws on child pornography. Finally forced to admit other moderators, but still likely the most powerful influence on what is inescapably the largest and most important men’s rights community online.

10=: David Benatar

Author of ‘The Second Sexism’ published this year – the most rigorously argued defence yet of the idea that men face disadvantages in society on account of discrimination.

10= : Steve Moxon

Brave author of the anti-feminist classic ‘The Woman Racket‘ which uses evolutionary psychology to explain how and why women, rather than men, have the power in society. One of the few MRA’s since Angry Harry with the courage and integrity to place the ongoing feminist rape of male sexuality and resulting legislative creep at the heart of any plausible notion of male disadvantage. Given his communication skills, media experience, and broad knowledge of evolutionary psychology, Steve Moxon would certainly be at the top of this list if he ever decided to assume a Paul Elam style role in a pro-male sexuality men’s movement.

10= : ‘The Futurist’

Also known as ‘The Fifth Horseman’, has to be in this list because of the outstanding and widely read ‘Misandry Bubble’. Some MRAs have questioned the level of originality, but no-one can dispute the way the Futurist has assembled the main themes and arguments of the movement into an academic standard essay, together with his own spin that manages to combine traditionalist pro-family sentiment with conclusions upon the inevitability of sex bots and virtual reality porn and their dire consequences for feminism. One of the very few must read articles in the Mansophere, and one that repays repeated study.

Other notable names (I’m aware I’ve probably unintentionally omitted some glaring ones – please leave suggestions in the comments below) :

ManWomanMyth – set a new standard in men’s rights documentary making.
Eivind Berge – started a national discussion in Norway on Men’s Rights. Again, one of the few MRAs brave enough to speak out against feminist sex laws.
