Now is a good time to see where we stand with this site, and what hopes we should have for the year ahead of us.
Loyal and esteemed readers will be aware that I’ve had my fair share of headaches here recently, particularly relating to comment moderation. On the plus side, we’re seeing more comments being left than ever, leading to much more stimulating and lively discussions over articles than before. Alan Vaughn has become a loyal and regular commentator, and we’ve benefited from the welcome addition of Eric as well.
On the downside, I’ve had a number of comments left, starting with American Father’s Rights activist Ray’s slandering of myself (and even Angry Harry), that have put my ability to run this site in jeopardy. This reached a low point when the rat JayHammers/JeremiahMRA turned into an immature little brother of MikeeUSA and began ejaculating his violent paedocritical psycho-sexual fantasies here. As he started using proxies to get around my ability to block him, I’ve been left with no choice but to put all comments on moderation hold, something which has obviously slowed down the pace of discussion, especially as I live in a different timezone from my most regular commentators (and I do need my sleep).
I regularly review whether this site has any point to it, and whether it is rational on my part to continue. Is it worth the time, effort, AND the headaches? Basically, my decision rests upon the question – ‘am I simply being a moral sucker in running this site?’
The reason I run this site is because a war is being waged upon male sexuality that appears to have no end point or limitation. Just when you think things can’t get any worse, they do, as we saw a couple of months ago with the onset of the Jimmy Savile hysteria. Whether or not I am closer to the frontline of this war than the average male, this will inevitably effect and put at risk every man at some point. If you believe otherwise, you are simply holding your head in the sand. At some point, we have to start fighting back. And this is a men’s rights issue if anything is.
Unfortunately, there are very few men in this world speaking out alongside myself, despite the fact that there is an emerging men’s rights movement that calls itself (with some plausibility) the fastest growing human rights movement in the world. And, despite the fact that throughout the previous entire history of that men’s rights movement starting from Ernest Belfort Bax, the first MRA, those claiming to speak for men were able to see that the feminist criminalization of male sexuality, including concerns surrounding the feminist age of consent, were clearly central and valid issues.
What makes me feel like a moral sucker? The thought that I’m putting all the time and effort into this site, as well as the not insignificant risks to myself, only for these efforts to be under-appreciated, unreciprocated, and even for this blog to merely serve as a platform for the agendas and interests of others.
You dislike the fact that I disapprove a comment you leave here which could get me arrested? Well get the f*** out of here right now. I’m not going to prison just to allow you to lower your blood pressure a little by providing a brief vent to your own rage and frustrations.
http://wordpress.com It takes 5 minutes for a person of average intelligence to set up their own blog, where you are free to say whatever you want, as well as shoulder the accompanying responsibilities for what you say.
Secondly, this is a men’s rights and anti-feminist site. Unlike feminists, I believe in the radical idea that women are people, or rather that women are adults and moral agents who can be held accountable for their moral actions. If millions of middle-aged women are voting in feminist or paedocrite politicians to make laws that protect themselves in an increasingly free sexual market, whilst possibly sending virtually any man to prison to be raped and beaten, then I prefer to hold those millions of women, and the feminist politicians and infinite number of lobby groups given power by them, to be accountable. If you just can’t get the smell of these lovely looking shelias middle-aged vaginas out of your nostrils, and feel compelled to constantly talk up less ‘misogynistic’ reasons for the war on male sexuality, then I again suggest you start up your own blog (or perhaps join those limp wristed pederasts at King of Hits).
Thirdly, never, never, play the ‘I’m less of a paedo than you’ game here, either to me, or to any of my readers or commentators. Let’s make it clear – none of us here are paedophiles (apart from MickeeUSA), but everyone here accepts that the feminist inflation and shameless exploitation of that term to cover the attraction to sexually aware teenage girls, up to 7 or 8 years post-pubescent, is an outrage and a brutal assault upon and rape of normal male sexuality. Don’t come here posting extended essays on why a feminist law is wrong but that you yourself would still find the criminalized behavour ‘creepy’ or ‘sick’ if it were made legal. This is the worst form of paedocrisy in my eyes.
Now on a more positive note, let’s look at what this site can claim to have achieved in its 4 year history.
Firstly, and most obviously, it has maintained the idea (even as a minority view) within the men’s rights movement that the constant feminist criminalization of male sexuality is a men’s rights issue, including those laws relating to the ‘protection’ of ‘children’ (i.e. nubile, fertile teenage girls).
Has it achieved any real results in terms of activism? I think it has, although it’s difficult to be certain. Still, even to suspect real world results is something, given that I run this site all by myself, have limited time and resources to devote to it, and deal in highly controversial subjects.
- It has possibly prevented the first feminist attempts to draw up legislation regarding the banning or limiting of ‘sexbots’. My article detailing the plans by philosopher and mangina Ian Kerr, and his round-table of feminist students, to draft a proposal strictly regulating the sale of ‘objectifying’ sexbots, has gone viral numerous times, most recently when infamous PUA RooshV tweeted it last week, and has probably been read by up to half-a-million people. Professor Ian Kerr likely has received hundreds of e-mails in protest, and in fact removed the draft legislation proposals from his website within hours of my article first appearing.
- It has possibly prevented a proposed highly misandrist book from being published that was effectively going to call for the elimination of the male sex.
- In the only successful example of myself and Human-Stupdity co-operating and co-ordinating our efforts, we appear to have managed to Google Bomb Valeria Ajovalasit, and her women’s group plans to sue Silvio Berlusconi for ‘degrading Italian women’, into silence. Both our articles demanding that she be put on trial for exploiting child abuse and prostitution appear at the top of a Google search for her name. Since her calls made headlines a couple of years ago, she seems to have gone strangely quiet on the issue (or on any issue).
In terms of growth, the site continues to grow slowly but steadily, with return visitors (the most important metric) increasing the most :
I’ve also been moving up the Alexa rankings :
To put this into context, AVoiceforMen.com now ranks at 80,000 on Alexa, with the-spearhead.com close behind, but it does compare to or surpass most other single author men’s rights blogs. For example, Fidelbogen’s CounterFem site is ranked at the 2million mark, and human-stupidity at the 1 and a 1/2 million rank.
There seems to have been a marked increase in traffic towards men’s rights sites in general over the last few months and even weeks. This is probably due to the popularity of YouTubers such as GirlWritesWhat, the backfiring attempted hijacking of the atheism movement by radical sexual trade unionists such as ‘SekpChick’ Rebecca Watson, and a number of high profile events such as the feminist protest at the speech by Warren Farrell at the University of Toronto. This last cause is most interesting, given that the feminist students were protesting at Farrell’s alleged support for ‘incest’ and ‘date rape’. Now whether or not Farrell said these things as the femihounds interpreted them, it demonstrates that at this stage there is absolutely no publicity that could be bad publicity for the men’s rights cause (short of a violent act being associated with the movement which could lead to ‘hate speech’ laws being introduced to silence us). Certainly, any MRA who thinks that discussion of the jailing under feminist laws of men for looking at pictures of women with small breasts or of cartoons online could ‘kill the cause’ for the bad publicity it could bring is being entirely dishonest.
A realistic goal for the end of 2013 would be to continue growth in the site, hopefully to be at the end of the year where AVoiceforMen or TheSpearhead is now in terms of readership. What I’d most like is a couple of other men’s rights pro-male sexuality bloggers or vloggers to emerge to take some of the burdon off of myself (and Human-Stupidity, and Eivind Berge). The main activist goal of 2013 is to look at the ways in which feminists are breaking laws (such as rape laws) and constitutions (such as the EU charter of citizen’s fundamental rights) in their legislative attempts to further their own sexual interests.
