The Vilar narrative, a debate that would have saved much pain

Article here. Excerpt:

'The notion of a culture defined by men alone was always ludicrous. The notion of women without power- where they largely controlled the early years of childhood – is laughable.

Now we will face a reality – where the essence of her narrative is being considered (even conjured without any awareness of her work by those who never heard her name) as the distortions of a feminist narrative are being regularly unmasked. How did the idea – of only men are violent, actually come to be accepted? It was clearly not understood that way – by the researchers in the 1970s and prior.'

An Erection Is Not Consent

Article here. Excerpt:

'When he was seventeen years old, my dear male friend was raped by a middle-aged woman. She approached his bed as he was waking, dropped her clothing, and grabbed his crotch beneath his sheets. He got hard, she mounted him, and he never forgot the trauma and confusion he experienced.

Rape of men by women is far more prevalent than was previously thought. New research shows that men are as likely as women to experience non-consensual sex and that the perpetrators of most male rapes are women. These shocking findings exist despite the likelihood that men underreport nonconsensual sex coerced by women because they fear the shame of being regarded as failures of masculinity.

When all forms of sexual abuse are included, one in six male adults reports having been raped or otherwise coerced into sexual action.

When females rape males, they tend to coerce erections and attempt to enforce penetration of their bodies by their unwilling victims. Under these conditions, erections are possible.'

Internet Backs Teen Refusing Paternity Test After Dad Claims She Isn't His

Article here. Excerpt:

'A young teenager has earned the backing of the internet after refusing to submit to a paternity test.

Though it might seem like the kind of thing reserved for daytime talk shows, paternity tests are more common in the U.S. than many realize.

The National Library of Medicine estimated as many as 300,000 paternity tests are performed in the U.S. annually to include or exclude a male as the biological father of a child.

According to Jared Rosenthal, the CEO and founder of Health Street, "up to 1 in 3 dads who suspect that they are not the father are right" while around 3 percent of all dads in the US are raising children that are not their own.

Rosenthal says that, in many cases, these men have fallen victim to something called "paternity fraud." "Paternity fraud is when a woman intentionally tricks a man into thinking that he is the father of her child, when in fact she knows that he is not," he said.'

Dangerous Changes Coming for Title IX

Article here. Excerpt:

'Last month, Catherine Lhamon was confirmed as assistant secretary of education for civil rights—the same position she held in the Obama administration. She aggressively enforced the 2011 guidance then, and seems ready to do so again. During her confirmation hearing, she testified that she does not believe Title IX regulations include a presumption of innocence for the accused, a fundamental tenet of our justice system.

The president is just fine with that.

On the campaign trail, he vowed to bring a “quick end” to the DeVos rules. And in March 2021 he issued an executive order directing the Education Department “consider suspending, revising, or rescinding” the DeVos rewrite.'

UK: Man who called out SU for ban on 'middle-aged white men' awarded £1,000

Article here. Excerpt:

'A university's students' union deliberately excluded 'middle-aged white male' celebrities from opening its new building for 'diversity' reasons, a tribunal heard.

Ellen Rudge, a senior manager at the University of Leicester's Students' Union, sent an email to staff asking for suggestions for high-profile figures to launch its new hub.

But, the marketing manager specifically stated she did not want 'another white, middle-aged man' as she was trying to 'reflect diversity'.

But she ended up being warned by a colleague that by singling out a particular group she risked being offensive and derogatory.

The ensuing row between Ms Rudge and experienced HR worker Ricardo Champayne led to his resignation and a tribunal at which the father of six alleged he had been 'victimised' by the students' union for calling out potential discrimination.

Now he has won more than £1,000 after successfully suing the SU for whistle-blowing and victimisation.'

UK: Nadhim Zahawi launches bid to get universities to take in more white working-class boys

Article here. Excerpt:

'A new national target is to be introduced in a bid to increase the number of white working-class males studying at university, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Research shows that only 12.6 per cent of them go on to higher education by the age of 19 – the lowest of all demographic groups – and they are less likely to get good grades at school than their equally disadvantaged ethnic minority peers.

Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi has asked regulators at the Office for Students to renegotiate universities’ targets to address ‘regional inequalities and prior attainment in schools’.

Only a handful of institutions set goals for the number of white working-class males, while support for the group with bursaries and scholarships is non-existent. Some academics say concerns about the fate of white working-class teenagers have been ignored or dismissed as ‘Right-wing thinking’.'

Men want to live without women; we should let them

Article here. Won't see this in western MSM. Excerpt:

'Ask your male friends and family and they’ll tell you they want peace. Peace; alone, on their own, because women, for all their sweet assets, come with enough drama to flatten an elephant.

They say that if that is not enough pain, when the dang hits the fan and divorce is filed, the woman is always the beneficiary – walking away with the money, matrimonial home, property and children. So the man remains as though he never had anything in his life! No money. No property, wife and kids. Things he worked hard to acquire.'

Female Doctor Who robs boys of role models, claims Tory MP

Article here. Excerpt:

'He said there had been a "creeping narrative that males have it easy, life is a breeze and they have nothing to complain about".

But, he added: "It is clear that life is tough for many men and young boys, and many of our boys in schools are far from privileged."

He attacked the phrase "toxic masculinity" - used to describe the pressure on men to stick to traditional views of how they should act - saying it "vilified" men and led them to feeling "worthless".

And then he turned to the "cultural sphere", claiming it shared the blame for rises in male violence.'

International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Men

It is so well documented in every nation that men suffer a disproportionate amount of violence that it need not be referenced here.

Every year, a major international conference is held about violence. In between are committees, regional conferences, studies, reports and the proposal of various regulations and laws to further curb violence. Much of this is organised by the United Nations, who spend billions of dollars on talking about eliminating violence. The United Nations are the body who, back in 1948, came up with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which insists upon equal treatment of men and women.

So it should not surprise you that the United Nations is as keen to deal with the violence against men as it is to deal with the violence against women.

But it is not.
