NCFM Member Nelson Otto on “Privilege, Not for Men Only

Privilege, Not for Men Only Male Privilege.  These two words are often stated as a given or fact, that men have advantages given to them just by virtue of being male, white males.  But, we might ask, compared to what?  Why haven’t we heard about female privilege?  Are there are things not being said?  Do females also have privilege?  Would we then think and feel differently about privilege and men and women? Let’s start a dialogue on this topic.  Since we’ve heard almost entirely of male privilege, I want list some of the privileges females have to offer balance to the topic. First a definition from the American Heritage Dictionary, “A special advantage, immunity, permission, right or benefit granted to or enjoyed by an individual class or caste.” Not having to register for selective service Five plus years longer life...

Update in the Falsely Accused and Wrongfully Convicted Case of Army Major Kit Martin.  HE’S FREE!!!  August 12, 2016  By NCFM Late last month, U.S. Army Major Christian “Kit” Martin was released from custody after serving a little over two months of a three-month sentence for two misdemeanor convictions of simple assault and conduct unbecoming. He and his family have left the Fort Campbell region and have settled in a new area.  They are now free from the glares that followed them wherever they went, under the cloud of embarrassment and suspicion caused by all the events surrounding his wrongful prosecution; or should we say, a persecution on a scale of the Duke Lacrosse case on steroids. Everything and anything that thousands across the country are saying what is wrong with the military’s sexual assault witch hunt are contained in...

  Domestic violence not just a female problem: Documents reveal more than 10,000 males across NSW affected (Daily Telegraph) Annabel Hennessy, The Daily Telegraph August 12, 2016 12:00am More than 10,000 male victims of domestic violence have been identified across NSW as the Baird government prepares to spend $13 million over four years on first-of-its kind support programs. Documents obtained by The Daily Telegraph reveal about 1800 men need “Safety Action Meeting” representation because they are at “serious threat”. Campbelltown, Mount Druitt and Parramatta were identified as violence hot spots, with more than 400 male victims identified in each. Upper-echelon localities were not immune, with 263 victims in the northern beaches and 315 victims in Waverley. Minister for the Prevention of Domestic Violence Pru Goward has backed the scheme, arguing survivors of domestic violence deserve “a strong response and support”....

ABC Life Matters story on male victims of domestic violence (MP3 audio) The ABC radio program Life Matters has produced a story on male victims and female perpetrators of domestic violence. Their website says, So far this year, 41 women have died from domestic assault. It’s a figure higher than terrorism in Australia, and one that we’re struggling to deal with as a society. The ABS’s Personal Safety Survey, last carried out in 2012, showed that one in six women and one in twenty men have been subject to domestic violence by their partner. We hear from a female perpetrator and a man who has been abused by his wife for more than two decades. The two interviews are superb, covering the complexity of experiences of a woman who has used violence in all her relationships (and went to prison for...

Regardless, without the dedication, drive, and commitment of Mr. Andresen and advocates like him Down Under would never have happened in our life times.

Another, in a long line of false military sexual assault cases August 9, 2016 By Michael Conzachi 31 Comments On June 28th, the Daily Caller published my Editorial; “A Travesty of Justice: Collateral Charges in Military Sexual Assault Cases .” I described the routine practice; as Defense Secretary Ash Carter proudly proclaimed, of charging those, facing allegations of sexual misconduct with “collateral” offenses, to ensure and guarantee a conviction of some minor offense, in the event, the accused is acquitted of any sexual misconduct charge. As has been the practice for some years now, it is no secret that a serviceman who is merely accused of some type of sexual misconduct will face a court-martial. It doesn’t matter if the allegation is true or not, and any and all military law enforcement investigative effort is made with the sole...

By
NCFM Member Tim Patten, “Rape and Frightened Women”

Rape and Frightened Women The editors of Parenting.com recommend that parents discuss intimate body parts and the subject of inappropriate touching with children when they are about three years old. The B-Inspired Mama blog suggests a more straightforward tack: We have got to put aside our differences as parents, and talk more about this terrible topic. I began telling my children at about 18 months that they own their bodies (“your body is all yours”) and that no one has a right to touch them unless it’s okay with them. Nowadays, few of us have not heard about the ongoing threat of sexual assault, especially that which involves young girls. Parents, generally mothers, are deluged with advice on what to do. They are told to raise the topic in an honest and age-appropriate way, which usually gets translated into...

In July 2016, the Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics finally published the paper by ARC Executive Director Steven Svoboda, ARC Legal Advisor Peter Adler, and Bob Van Howe from the Twentieth Annual Thomas A.

NCFM PR Director Steven Svoboda quoted in “anti-male bias” lawsuit article

NCFM NOTE: This “anti-male” case could be a huge victory for men since they are the primary adversely affected group. Anyone who interested in due process in disciplinary procedures on college campuses knows that systems are rigged against males and blatantly disregard constitutional protections in favor of social re-engineering and “social justice,” which is largely malarkey. Hopefully, this victory will lead to many others and the outcome may positively impact one or more of the 100 or more related pending lawsuits. Court green-lights ‘anti-male bias’ lawsuit against Columbia By Morgan Walker A male student at Columbia University will be allowed to proceed with a lawsuit accusing the school of “anti-male” bias in its handling of a female student’s sexual assault accusations.

NCFM Member Tim Patten, “Canadian Man Awarded Daughter’s Full Guardianship,” now he’s a father’s rights activist

Canadian Man Awarded Daughter’s Full Guardianship Jakob Letkemann faced the biggest challenge of his–or maybe anyone’s–life: the battle for custody of his three-year old daughter, Darian. He struggled through exhausting and heartrending court battles, during which time the 40-year old resident of Salt Spring Island, located off the west coast of British Columbia, found himself on an emotional roller-coaster ride, falsely accused of various abuses as he sought to prevail against a system biased against fathers. But none of this mattered after the verdict came in. Jakob fell to his knees, victorious, when the female judge announced he was granting his request for custody of Darian. Initially unaware of just how stacked the deck was against dads in such situations, as well as the fact that they were notorious for bringing out the worst in others, his eyes welled...

NCFM Member Caleb Papp, “Nottinghamshire Hates Crimes Against Women” as they should, but…

Nottinghamshire Hates Crimes Against Women, as they should, but…whistling or merely asking her for a date! What is a hate crime? One might think that its something motivated by hate, but feminism has made sure that it’s now more than that. As always a woman’s feelings alone are enough to decide a man’s perspective. Of course, this isn’t reality. Most of the time a man wolf-whistling will be because he thinks the woman will enjoy the attention or because he’s being tactless. But that’s a far cry from hatred. It’s hard to know how to react to an article like this. I certainly think that a man whistling at a girl is not being classy, perhaps annoying or in few instances quite a bit more. But it’s not supposed to be a crime to be tactless. One might consider...

Masculinity Deconstructed, Liberated and Unchained A recent episode of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher featured an interview with Rebecca Traister, feminist and author of All the Single Ladies, who sang praises for the book’s themes of the rise of independent women and gender equality. Among other things, she noted that more than 50 million unmarried women are now working, escaping male oppression. That total has been rising fast, with females now representing about half of the U.S. labor force. Indeed, the progress seen so far has inspired the National Organization for Women (NOW) to lessen its emphasis on workplace equality and focus instead on helping females to “appreciate their bodies.” One fact that Ms. Traister failed to mention, however, was that this evolving landscape has also liberated us men from the deeply ingrained and longstanding belief that women...

The study examined the experiences of two cohorts of parents, in 2012 and 2014, the latter a total of 6,079 parents who separated between 1 July 2012 and 31 December 2013, representing parents’ post-reform experience of the family law system. The data indicate that family violence is a common experience among separated parents, with a majority of participating parents in both cohorts reporting either physical or emotional abuse. The study found that males (fathers) made up: 41.3% of parents who reported experiencing physical hurt (with or without emotional abuse) before/during separation 51.8% of...

By
NCFM Member Tim Patten, “Patriarchy and Lesbian Feminist Scholars”

Lesbian Feminist Scholars Lesbian feminist author Maria Mies once wrote, “If patriarchy had a specific beginning in history, it can certainly have an end.” As with other feminist scholars, a group dominated by mostly white lesbians who share a perversely narrow-minded perspective, Mies is convinced that patriarchy–as well as the male sex–is oppressive and malevolent to women. Ostensibly, they advocate for female equality, but their lengthy lectures say otherwise. Their words detail a horrendously aggressive fraternity of privileged white men who pay women pennies on the dollar as they socially and institutionally oppress, dominate, discriminate against, and abuse them. In fact, the feminists’ words and actions have little to do with righting a wrong, but are instead founded on a theoretical framework, crafted by a lesbian elite, that maintains males are disgusting and immoral by nature. These experts promote...

NCFM Member Tim Patten, “The Lonely Single Men of MGTOW”

The Lonely Single Men of MGTOW Around the world, a large and growing contingent of males is sounding a clarion call about the dark side of marriage. In doing so, they are drawing scorn and being contemptuously regarded as “lonely hearts,” “loners,” “losers,” “women-haters” and “recluses.” But nothing could be further from the truth. They have made an informed and rationale choice based on modern day realities and a keen understanding of what is important. What follows is an exploration of the world of Men Going Their Own Way (MGTOW) and the lives that these individuals choose to lead. Since no-fault divorce laws were enacted in 1970, over 50 million American men have endured oppressive divorces initiated by their wives. Ironically, if not for the fact that females roundly criticize males who avoid the marriage commitment, it is the...

By
NCFM Award Winner Wendy McElroy’s new book “Rape Culture Hysteria”

Rape Culture Hysteria: Fixing the Damage Done to Men and Women offers a comprehensive overview and debunking of the “rape culture” myth that has devastated campuses and is spilling into Main Street America. An ideological madness is grotesquely distorting North America’s view of sexuality. The book applies sanity to the claims that men are natural rapists and our culture encourages sexual violence. Written by a libertarian feminist and rape survivor, Rape Culture Hysteria opens with a highly personal appeal to depoliticize rape and treat it instead as a crime. Victims need to heal. Politicizing their pain and rage is a callous political maneuver that harms victims, women and men. Chapter One: The Fiction of the Rape Culture defines the “rape culture” and explains why it does not exist in North America. It glances back at how the fiction became...

By
NCFM Member Tim Patten on “Misogyny and Bachelorhood”

Misogyny and Bachelorhood Early on during the 2016 Republican presidential primary campaign, Donald Trump took umbrage at aggressive questioning by Fox News moderator Megyn Kelly at one of the debates. In addition to characterizing her as “not very good or professional,” Mr. Trump said, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.” That latter remark triggered a firestorm, with the outspoken candidate being widely accused of misogyny—hating or disliking girls or women. Unfortunately, as with many of the words and phrases that are being carelessly thrown around in these days, they are not necessarily being used to make a thoughtful or coherent point; they are being deployed as weapons of gender manipulation and hate, coopted and maligned by radical feminists and other man-hating ideologues in a quest to undermine...

NCFM Member Mark Lesmeister opinion published in Houston Chronicle, “Advantages Galore”

Advantages galore Regarding “Trump’s innate sexism is an insult to all of us” (Page A15, Thursday), Ruth Marcus wants to remind us of the disadvantages female candidates face. Isn’t it time we explore at least a little bit the other side of the coin: that is, the privileges female candidates enjoy solely because of their gender? Here’s just a few examples. Hillary Clinton has never had to answer the “what did you do during the war” that dogged her husband and George W. Bush. As a woman, she is automatically excused from the expectation that she should have served her country in uniform. Second, when female candidates are attacked personally, the omnipresent chivalrous impulse to protect women, which is just another form of sexism, rears its ugly head. Think of Clayton Williams refusing to shake Ann Richards hand after...

NCFM Member Tim Patten “Bachelorhood, Men Going Their Own Way Are Saving Lives”

Bachelorhood, Men Going Their Own Way Are Saving Lives Modern romance, notably love and marriage, is failing. Every year, millions of American couples see their relationships fall apart. For many males, however, the result is not something to get upset about. In fact, a growing number of divorced men are discovering their true purpose in life. They are moving themselves, friends and society toward something better, joining with large communities of men who’ve already rejected the glamorization of love and marriage. Bachelorhood and initiatives such as Men Going Their Own Way (MGTOW) are helping to rebuild esteem and save men’s lives. The truth is, women and society as a whole have been rallying support for eons behind the institution of marriage. Among other things, it’s been claimed that unmarried men die earlier than their married counterparts, which has helped...

Only lung cancer kills more men than prostate cancer (American Cancer Society). Prostate cancer is the second most common cause of cancer deaths among white, black, American Indian/Alaska Native, and Hispanic men; and the fourth cause of cancer deaths for Pacific...

Greg Andresen NCFM Liaison Australia, reports that ABC corrected their domestic violence fact sheet after the One in Three Campaign’s critique

NCFM  NOTE: Greg Andresen and the One in Three Campaign have for years fought to incorporate the truth about domestic violence into Australian affairs and government. His extraordinary commitment to this cause is nothing short of awesome! ABC Fact Check corrects Fact File on Domestic violence in Australia Recently the ABC’s Fact Check program published a Fact File on Domestic violence in Australia. The Fact File directly addresses the One in Three Campaign’s claim that one in three victims of family violence is male. One in Three responded to Fact Check via their website and Facebook page, and Fact Check are to be congratulated for amending their Fact File soon afterwards. They published our critique in full on their website at www.abc.net.au/news/2016-04-12/domestic-violence-one-in-three-respond/7315552, which reads as follows: “One in Three” responds to Fact Check’s domestic violence fact file  Updated Fri at 11:17am On...

NCFM Member Tim Patten, “Feminists’ Patriarchal Worldview Inspired MGTOW”

NCFM Member Tim Patten, “Feminists’ Patriarchal Worldview Inspired MGTOW”

Feminists’ Patriarchal Worldview Inspired MGTOW The roots of radical feminism, as well as women’s and gender studies initiatives, can be seen in a 1970s BBC documentary, Angry Wimmin (watch on YouTube), which offers insights on the origins of the women’s movement. Among those featured is Sheila Jeffreys, an influential lesbian activist, who speaks frankly about the movement’s mission as a “dedicated war” on men (Feminist Patriarchy Theory). Over time, the radicalism espoused by Jeffreys and others has had an insidious effect, promulgating widespread distrust of male virtues. Sweeping women’s rights propaganda has also altered the social landscape, undermining relationships between the sexes and transforming the once timeless ideals of love and marriage into relics of the past. The feminist patriarchy theory only divides the sexes and is fueling the popular phenomenon MGTOW, (Men Going Their Own Way). In fact,...

NCFM Member Nikita Coulombe, “Re-thinking the midlife crisis”

Re-thinking the midlife crisis I was recently chatting with a friend of mine who not only as a highly successful company, but has a non-profit where he gets to pursue one of his passions. To many, these factors alone would put him in the “made it” category of life. To top it off, he’s in good health, has raised great kids and has found a lovely woman he wants to marry. In just about every way, life could not be better, but he said there is still one thing gnawing at him. So far in his relationship he has kept his very high libido a secret from his girlfriend. His reasoning was understandable in a way – he’s not a public figure but he is a social one, and he did not want to scare her or to risk...

NCFM Member Tim Patten on Toxic Femininity and Rape

By
NCFM Member Tim Patten on Toxic Femininity and Rape

RAPE ! Rape is an atrocious power-act of sexual assault. It is also a word that is recklessly bandied about by women’s groups, who exploit it for financial gain and a quest for political supremacy. In fact, references to this inflammatory term seem as ubiquitous as the GEICO ads that blanket our airwaves. According to gender theorists, our so-called rape culture is a byproduct of a social setting where this heinous act has become pervasive and normalized due to societal attitudes about gender and sexuality. They say it is commonplace, an extreme manifestation of pervasive misogyny and sexism, and has caused post-trauma distress and health problems in a great many women. All men are potential rapists Some radicalized individuals go even further. They maintain that the fashion industry’s use of female models to market their products, Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit...
