Commentary: women deserve better

NCFM NOTE: It took courage for this young man to stand up for himself as a man. Please thank him.

GROSSMONT COLLEGE–Would it be clear that our culture values men far more than women, if, in the US, women accounted for 90 percent of workplace fatalities, yet still came cries for “men’s comfort and safety”? The gender-opposite is reality. In relationships, what if women learned early in life that a woman’s role is to work a job that she hates in order to provide for the comfort, safety and security of a man who, often times, has been socialized to be an ungrateful misogynist–someone who hates women. The gender-opposite is true–and women deserve better than to be ungrateful trophies.


October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. But breast cancer is quite comparable to prostate cancer, and yet the cancer that affects only men receives only one-fourth of the monetary attention of the other, reflecting a powerful bias of concern–bias against men’s health. Women deserve better than to be self-centered, woman-centric chauvinists.

October is Domestic Violence (DV) Awareness month. Yet when I attended a viewing of Telling Amy’s Story, on campus, and took part in discussion thereafter, I recognized that the event was not aimed at discussing causes and complexities of DV but rather the aim was to indefensibly reiterate that DV is always one-sided, with women invariably as victims and men invariably as villains. Reality says otherwise, as do the most thorough academic-studies, and as would anyone being honest. Women are violent against men all the time–that won’t change by hiding behind female victims of violence nor by ignoring or mocking male victims or socializing people to believe that women’s violence against men is not a crime. Women deserve better than to be unaccountable abusers… you can read the rest of the article here: Women Deserve Better

    As both Ray, Fred, Russ, and thousands of others know institutions of higher education attempt to ground students in feminist philosophy. What most students don't realize and are not told is that feminist philosophy is women looking in a mirror without a reflection. It's uncanny dangerous.

    It seems that colleges want to eradicate men on campus altogether.
    If the curriculum won't drive them off, they will charge them all with rape, insuring that they will never succeed in life.
    Isn't creating a hostile environment, one of the definitions of Domestic Violence?
    It certainly seems that many colleges are guilty, or on a path to becoming guilty of this.
    There is no excuse for domestic violence.
    So why are so many women's groups endorsing the institutionalizing of it?
    Thank you Russ Lindquist for telling the truth.
    And thank you to all the other men and women who do as well.
    Sincerely, Fred Sottile

waybackmachineOver the years millions of people worldwide have visited a National Coalition For Men website. Also over the years the site has changed dramatically, been taken down, moved, and otherwise uprooted. In those processes much information was lost, not recovered, and does not appear on this site.

Honorable Men

The New Warrior community is a group of men who specially pride themselves on being honorable. Tim Goldich, President NCFM Chicago Chapter and author of, Loving Men, Respecting Women: The Future of Gender Politics joined that community several years ago. He came to realize just how vulnerable honorable men are to having their honor used against them. Our fate may indeed depend upon honorable conduct. To better understand how the misuse of Man’s honor is a root cause of issues and ideas found on this website you should first read Mr. Goldich’s article, The Honorable Man. It lights the way to understanding how The Honorable Man can be manipulated into becoming The Complacent Man.
