Apologies for the lack of updates, but old Schopenbecq has been busy performing his anti-feminist duties abroad – chiefly objectifying topless girls on various French and Italian beaches. Ahhh Italia. Is there any other country in the world which has the moral integrity to take American websites to court for making money from the (real) abuse of chidren? Is there any other country so un-emasculated, so free of the anglo-american homosexualisation/feminization of global society that the Prime Minister himself can (allegedly) be caught ‘cavorting’ with beautiful 17 year old models and see his appeal to the male electorate actually increase as a result?
Are men becoming the new juden in modern Germany? With what other words can you describe a nation in which a mainstream party can officially declare that ‘men’ should be abolished?
The signatories include several Green politicians from the European parliament, the German Bundestag as well as local Green leaders. “We no longer want to be macho,” it declares, “we want to be people. You are not born a man, you are turned into one.”
First time I read the article I was incensed. Then I saw that it did contain some possibly valid points. There is nothing wrong with seeking to ‘deconstruct manhood’, in itself. The possible rejection of any socially determined concept of masculinity is a perfectly reasonable debate for men to have, and one I have great sympathy with – believing, as I do, that masculinity has largely been determined, in history and today, by the selfish reproductive and emotional needs of women.
The article goes on :
“We want to live differently!” writes Lehmann, a senior member of the North Rhine-Westphalia branch of the party, and the European parliamentarian Albrecht. They appeal for a slower pace of life, less focus on profit and more health consciousness. They want to start holding “Boys’ Days and gender-sensitive career-guidance sessions.”
All of that sounds more or less reasonable too. The problem is determining at what point the valid stuff – men re-evaluating their own socialy determined roles, ends. And at what point does women (or manginas) making men and boys guilty and self-loathing of their own inescapable masculinity begin?
Given the preponderance of feminists in the German Green Party, I’m not very optimistic. However, until I have time to look at it more closely, I’ll reserve judgement.
So what do female members of the Green Party make of this? Astrid Rothe-Beinlich, the Green spokesperson for women’s issues, welcomes the new manifesto. “The Greens have always been a progressive party,” she says, adding it was high time “that men also take responsibility for the issue of equality.” But their party colleagues should not simply applaud the manifesto, she says. The question now, in her words, is, “How can it be implemented?” Franza Drechsel, Green Youth spokesperson for gender and political affairs, also praised the new manifesto in principle. “It is good that men participate in the debate,” she says, adding “this is far from enough … the authors remain stuck in the rut of talking about two sexes.” Above all, the debate is not just about men, she argues: “In the long term we can only be in this together.”
But Green Party women are not exactly cooperative either, because this weekend they are keeping to themselves. The speakers at the National Women’s Congress in Bonn are exclusively female. So the question remains: When will the Green anti-macho men hold their first national meeting?
For every woman, it is a moment she thinks will never come but, deep down, knows must arrive some ghastly day. It’s the moment she looks in the mirror and sees the body and face of an older woman.
This life-changing moment happened to me a few days ago. And I know exactly why. It is because my eldest daughter, aged 12, has just blossomed into a stunning young woman almost overnight, bringing it home to me in stark, naked contrast how much older I am now. And how much more beautiful she is than me
This article appeared in a British newspaper that only a couple of weeks ago called for the age of consent to be raised to 21 – for men to be locked away as subhuman perverts to be analy raped and beaten for having consensual sex with 20 year old women.
But of course, this has nothing to do with
American male conservative mummys baby daddy’s maybe my teen daughter and her virginity is my property and my ticket to economic prosperity and selfish gene immortality don’t wake me up and remind me that america has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the world men’s rights.
How soon before American conservative MRAs accuse others of ‘rationalising their desire to have sex with 20 year old women’?
At least American conservatives and the middle-aged sexually jealous female authors of the article quoted above will be happy – even if the hundreds of thousands of men being raped and beaten in prison cells won’t be.
Magibon is a 23 year old American YouTube sensation – somehow figuring out how to eternally look like a cute 16 year old Anime girl. What’s more, she’s got the cutest and most feminine personality to go with it. Some day all women will look like this.. they might even behave like her too.
A woman moved is like a fountain troubled,
Muddy, ill-seeming, thick, bereft of beauty,
And while it is so, none so dry or thirsty
Will deign to sip or touch one drop of it

JayHammers got a lot of stick recently for an article posted on ‘The Spearhead’, since taken down but available to read on his blog. His argument was that the men’s movement was showing unwelcome signs of diluting its message in the attempt to achieve mainstream status. An issue I’ve addressed here too. The ‘mistake’ Jay made was in being slightly tactless and appearing to directly attack two notable and powerful websites and the individuals behind them. Websites and individuals that, whatever else, have undoubtedly achieved a great deal for men. Bruised egos and vicious infighting have been the result.
Two excellent essays have appeared, saying much the same as Jay did, except that the authors here avoided making individual attacks.

Anti-Feminist Tech : Be extreme and unreasonable
I no longer identify myself as a men’s rights activist. I’m going to stick exclusively to analysing and interpreting feminism as a sexual trade union. However, that doesn’t stop me posting links to men’s rights articles that I know my readers might enjoy.
For what it’s worth, I believe that mras have to wake other men up and articulate just how much pain and anger feminists are causing. The mainstream can’t ignore tens of thousands of angry, committed men, determined to expose feminism for what it is. Rather than weeding out misogynists or ‘perverted extremists’ who question feminist laws based on unscientific ‘argument’ that lead to countless men being raped and beaten in prison, the men’s movement might be better advised simply trying to wake men up from their chivalrous slumbers.
Of course, being tactful, moderate, and seeking mainstream acceptance is surely not incompatible with a more radical and ‘extremist’ voice within the anti-feminist movement. Afterall, it was radical feminists such as Andrea Dworkins that gave ‘mainstream’ feminism its credence and allowed its message to be heard (now of course, we have reached the point where all men are, in effect, legally defined as rapists – all carried through by these ‘moderate’ mainstream feminists. The radical/moderate distinction was always illusory).
I’m going on holiday for a few weeks so I won’t be updating so often. I’m actually thinking of changing the format of this site. Trying to update regularly seems to prevent me from writing the longer pieces and essays that I’d like to spend more time working on – such as an alternative history of feminism.
Although this site helps me to let off steam, its not without its stresses. I’m heartened, therefore, when somebody leaves a comment to tell me that they understand the reference to Houellebecq or that my work has some importance to the welfare of men. Although my traffic continues to go up, I’ve come to the realization that a lot of these visitors are feminist stalkers, even masochistic 60 year old women from East Anglia, who for some reason enjoy reading the truth as to why they like to lock more and more harmless men up to be raped. It’s nice to be reminded that I do have some genuine readers also.
Is there really a men’s rights forum whose members consist mainly of ‘sympathetic’ feminists supported by white knight manginas who claim also to be ‘men’s rights supporters’. Men’s rights supporters who will downvote you, call you an extremist, and tell you to fuck off if you ever dare to criticise feminism in any way? Notice I said ‘criticise feminism’, not criticise ‘women’. We all know that the men’s movement has a vociferous and public wing who firmly believe that our cause is not served by baiting cheap accusations of ‘misogyny’ through crudely expressed, if understandably motivated, verbal attacks on women. I have no problem with such a position, although I think that the concern is sometimes a little overstated.
But can there really be a men’s rights page that actively denounces as heresy any mere finger pointing at feminists and their role in the decline and fall of the contemporary male?
Yes, incredibly, there is. It’s called Reddit Men’s Rights, and it is the fastest growing men’s rights resource on the web, proudly numbering 8,000 readers and counting. And it’s a place where newcomers to our young movement will ‘learn’ that the likes of Angry Harry and The Spearhead are ‘ crazy extremist sites’ morally equivalent to feminazi blogs that call for the entire male sex to be burned alive (and we shouldn’t post links to feminazi blogs at Reddit because they ‘misrepresent feminism’!).
Reddit, in terms of the comments section and the constant downvoting, is clearly a joke and a travesty to our movement. The question is – is it now becoming a real threat to our movement?
The first thing I should say is that there are a lot of intelligent and genuine men’s rights supporters on Reddit who I respect and admire. A couple of very important MRAs – MGTOW and Pierce Hanlon, of the false rape society, also post important and relevant links there. In fact, between them, they post nearly all of the important and relevant links. Having said that, only Pierce Hanlon and JayHammers are MRAs who participate in discussions there who I recognise from elsewhere in the movement (and JayHammers is also tired to death of what Reddit is sadly becoming).
To those of you unfamiliar with it, Reddit is a social ‘bookmarking’ site, in which members post links in suitably defined categories which are then up or downvoted according to how readers view their relevance and interest. Thanks largely to the hard work of MGTOW and Pierce, Reddit had become an unmatched source for up to the minute stories relating to men’s rights issues. Over the last few months, however, it has become noticeable that perfectly good links immediately get downvoted (they are then automatically removed from the front page and become near invisible). More recently still, it has become apparant in the comments sections below the posts, that there are clearly more feminists now visiting ‘our’ Reddit than genuine men’s rights supporters. And the ‘men’s rights discussion’ at Reddit is becoming proportionately crazier and crazier and out of touch with mainstream men’s rights as a result.
Before I give a couple of brief examples, I should explain why I feel that this issue is important, and why Reddit could become a real danger to men’s rights. As I’ve already said, however twisted the viewpoint there is becoming, it is the fastest growing men’s rights resource on the web. At least in brute numbers. Attracting over 1,000 readers each month is impressive, even if most of those numbers are feminists (and the others don’t seem to hang around). If you google ‘mens’ rights’ you will find that Reddit already appears on the second page of results. With the massive page rank that Reddit enjoys, it probably won’t be long before it sits right at the top of the Google mountain, the unofficial ‘homepage’ of our movement. The demographic of Reddit is also different to most other men’s rights places online. I assume it is a lot younger. It certainly sounds younger. Whichever way you look at it, this subreddit is many people’s first encounter with men’s rights, especially those of young people. A place for men’s rights beginners that is overpopulated (infested might be a better description) with ‘sympathetic’ feminists and chivalrous white knights who forbid even the slightest criticism of feminism, is potentially a threat to our nascant movement if it is teaching those newcomers a completely erroneous view of what most men’s rights activists believe and struggle for.
In a sense the Men’s Rights Reddit is irrelevant in terms of real activism (I’ve tried to set up a ‘call to action’ system there, which was largely ignored). However, in terms of demographic and sheer weight of numbers, there is a very real possibility that it could begin to mould the future agenda and outlook of the men’s movement. And it is an agenda that feminist trojan whorses there, such as CryptoGirl and Inabook, are only too willing to pervert.
Take the following example. A highly relevant post was submitted consisting of a news report stating that over two thirds of murder victims in the UK last year were male. Men’s rights? Of course it is. Just as much as it is accepted that the fact that a disproportionate number of male homicide victims are black is a ‘black rights issue’.
But not for feminist male rights supporter CryptoGirl, who immediately denounced the irrelevance of the post by pointing out that most of the murderers of males were also males. Men killing men is not men’s rights. His/Her comment (‘she’s’ a transvestite waiting for the snip), since deleted, swiftly recieved the customary barrage of upvotes, other MRAs promptly agreed with her, and her position as the independent arbiterer of what is and isn’t men’s rights was further cemented – with a final comment consisting of ‘now, back to equal rights! 🙂‘ . Yes she actually did make that last comment (whichReddit MRAs naturally again upvoted).
Except that men killing men is a men’s rights issue. If men are more than twice as likely to be the victims of murder than women are, then that should at least be a cause to question the feminist dogma that society is better for men than it is for women, no matter who is doing the killing. And you can’t have your cake and eat it. If we have to blame ‘society’ on the need for men’s rights rather than feminists, then we should also be able to blame a society that is unfair to men on such gender imbalances as the likelihood of being a victim of murder. In fact, there is a strong case for arguing that it is women, and not ‘society’, let alone men, who play a dominant role in the greater incidence of male homicide – especially when so many of those murders are the results of gang feuds, typically between young, urban black males, who have had their sense of masculine worth defined and perverted by the grotesque and racist sexual needs of white females.
Another example. Only yesterday another sympathetic feminist (inabook) praised a senate bill that will prevent teenagers from being jailed as sex offenders under feminist created statutory rape laws. Nothing wrong with that you might say. It is indeed a welcome and long overdue initiative to stop a child abusing practice that puts the American justice system into disrepute and was only serving as an increasingly embarrassing reminder that such laws have nothing to do with child protection. But is the following comment really worth 10+ upvotes on a men’s rights page? :
This sounds like an excellent step forward– focusing on age difference rather than purely on age of consent.
So a 16 year old slut can quite happily bang a similarly immature 16 year old boy, but if it happens to be a 25 year old who knows how to put on a condom but is perhaps a little emotionally immature and is attracted to younger girls, then lock him away and throw away the key? If a 16 year old can consent to sex with a boy her own age, why is she mysteriously unable to consent to sex with an older male? Studies have proven time and time again that young people are far more likely to be sexually abused by their peers than by older partners. In fact, it seems that inabook and the asshats who vote her inane comments up don’t even understand the concept of peer pressure…or perhaps just conveniently forget it when it justifies them stopping their boyfriends or husbands ever being tempted by nubile younger flesh.
In fact, surely it follows, if consent only becomes invalid if there is a percieved possible imbalance in power, that crazy feminist laws that lock professors up for sleeping with 21 year old students or that criminilize men as rapists for having sex with tipsy women, are also justified? Well, actually the crazy gang at men’s rights reddit probably think that those laws are justified. After all, only extremists think that men’s rights has any connection with anti-feminism…
As well as illustrating the danger that Reddit has become, the above two examples clearly showcase one of the fundamental errors of the men’s rights movement in general. Allowing feminists to set our agenda by chasing a ridiculously naive and simplistic conception of the notion of equality. As I have stated here many times, equality is not just about the distribution of goods, but about the valuation and selection of those goods in the first place. I keep half-expecting to see CryptoGirl make a post declaring her disappointment that society has been slow to accept the right of men to have an abortion….and no doubt that too would get dozens of upvotes from the simple-minded equality whores at Reddit.
Men’s Rights is about speaking up against the abuse and discrimination suffered by men in an increasingly misandristic society created by feminists and their supporters. Our movement is still very young and still, all too depressingly, very small. Reddit Men’s Rights is one of the few places (and in sheer numbers, the largest) where the future outlook and agenda of our cause is being decided and debated.
We must not let feminists decide what that agenda should be. This isn’t about silencing opposition to our cause (in the expert manner of feminists). It’s about allowing our nascent cause to develop its own true voice. Surely we deserve that dignity at least?
A new Reddit Men’s Rights has been created and all genuine men’s rights supporters are welcome to join and participate :
Hypersexuality – the desire for multiple partners, i.e. natural male sexuality (polygyny), is to be officially classified as a mental disorder by the ‘bible’ of the psychiatric profession.
The disorders, which also include hypersexuality — the desire for multiple partners, perhaps characterised by the golfer Tiger Woods — reflect changing social patterns. Critics believe, however, that their classification as psychiatric problems may lead them to be exploited for profit by drug companies.
Such female driven pharmaceutical intervention into male sexuality may be closer than you think. Oxytocin, a hormone whose primary impact on males is monogamous attraction to a partner, is undergoing manifold clinical drug trials at this very moment (you might have seen it being lauded on Oprah or read about it in a thousand female health and lifestyle articles).
Thus the touchy, feely ‘science’ of psychiatry, increasingly the preserve of women bitter at the thought that they wasted their youth in books rather than beds, now officially becomes a medium of feminist shaming language against male sexuality, and likely soon an instrument of formal state control. Tiger Woods disease must and will be eradicated. Men WILL be faithful and monogamous to the female primate who can only give birth once every 9 months and who requires a loyal mate for protection and to obtain for her and her child necessary resources…well at least in the period of EEA (environment of evolutionary adaptation).
The welfare state and draconionly enforced child support payments are apparently not enough to soothe the primal anxieties of the 21st century female, a mind which struggles in vain to free itself from the moral straightjacket of the African savannah.
The only real science in psychiatry is that which is based upon evolutionary theory. Feminists are increasingly being allowed to pevert male science into hocus pocus – and all in order to legitimise their own evolutionary mating strategy – a ‘morality’ that, in an age of free contraception which renders polygyny relatively harmless, ought to have gone the way of belief in fairies and other superstitions. A genuine mental disorder.
‘All Men Are Rapists’ – infamous quote attributed to feminist author Marilyn French (spoken by a character in one of her novels).
Angry Harry – Probably the most popular and linked to of MRAs and one of the founders of the online men’s rights movement. Harry writes on most of the topics that concern men’s rights but is particularly cogent on false rape accusations and the abuse industry. Also excellent when discussing strategies and tactics that the movement should adopt.
Debates within the Men’s Rights Community – MRAs are a politically diverse group of people. Whilst most would probably lean towards conservatism, it is by no means a settled question as to whether this or any other conventional political ‘allegiance’ should be intrinisic to men’s rights. Neil Lyndon, author of the first important men’s rights publication since the second wave, constructed his argument using a largely Marxian framework. More typically though, men’s rights activists usually see opposition to feminism as tied up with a libertarian dislike of an interfering and overpowering state. A huge and related issue within men’s rights is the interpretation of the historical relationship between the sexes and whether or not ‘patriarchy’, in terms of men having power in society, ever really existed. To be ‘conservative’ is not identical with wishing a return to an alleged state of male power over women, and the latter is certainly not men’s rights. Other key debates within men’s rights include the sensitive subject of ‘misogyny’. Many are fervent in their desire to see ‘misogynists’ rooted out of the movement, whilst others argue that men have a right to be angry with women and that we should work to either more fairly define the word ‘misogny’ or even to destigmatise it and thus render a key feminist weapon of shaming language redundant.
Hypergamy – practice of seeking a spouse of equal or higher socioeconomic status than oneself – a term usually applied to the ubiquitous female expression of this behaviour, whether in primitive tribal societies or in today’s developed world.
Mangina– a male who allows himself to be used as a tool of the opposite sex, even to the extent of supporting his own oppression and exploitation via the ‘chivalrous’ defending of feminism and/or misandry.
Misandry – the hatred of males.
MRA – Men’s Rights Activist.
No More Sex War (1992)– Classic work by British Men’s Rights pioneer Neil Lyndon. Argues that second wave feminism was merely an intellectual dressing to deterministic social changes driven by the needs of the labour market. One of the first authors to systematically question misandry and feminist assumptions regarding the likes of domestic violence and pay inequality. Lyndon’s career as a successful journalist was curtailed as a result of the backlash against his heretical work.
Pussy Pass – the ability to gain preferential treatment simply on account of being female.
Sistaria Law– A reference to Islamic/Feminist shared attitudes towards sexual behaviour and the need for it to be strictly regulated – particularly with regard to pornography, male adultory, prostitution, and public displays of sexuality by (beautiful young) females.
The Spearhead – multi-author men’s rights site, one of the most important hubs for news and discussion in the movement.
White Knight – a chivalrous male who sees defending the opposite sex as a duty to be performed by himself as a man.
vajazzle – the act of adorning a vagina with shiny crystals.
