July is Male Victim’s Month
By: Ray Blumhorst

The political landscape is littered with something special month here and something special month there, many with no regard for the well being of males specifically so it’s doubtful many would care to celebrate another something special month, especially if it recognizes things that disparately affect males in horribly negative ways.

Well frankly, I don’t give a damn and have decided I’m not just going to recognize Male Victim’s Day on July 11th, the day NCFM Vice President, Marc Angelucci was murdered in 2020, I’m going to recognize the whole month of July as Male Victim’s Month in honor of my dear friend, one of the finest human beings I’ve ever known on this earth. Yes, Male Victim’s Month will recognize him and all the other males who are victimized by the crime of having been born male.

In my youth, I spent too many months (21) on an amphibious assault ship in the waters of southeast Asia and saw a number of things shocking to my youthful sensibilities, but nothing there, or anywhere else in my life, has touched me to the core of my ability to comprehend the waste of human life as deeply as the death of Marc Angelucci. I still carry a sense of utter disbelief that such a vulgar waste of a precious life could occur and probably will until the day I die.

In my time in Southeast Asia, I frequently heard Marines tell each other, “Get tough or die.” Well, they certainly did plenty of both, but I’m old now and I guess I’ve gotten soft, or at least softer than I was then, because I’m tired of taking the horrors of being male like we are told a man should take them. No, damn it, let’s just stop making males the disposable sex, and let’s start by recognizing all the sexist (misandrist) ways that males are victimized in their lives, all the ways society institutionalizes that, all the ways society is just fine with male victimization and disposability.

Males are roughly: 76% of homicides, 80% of suicides, 99% of military deaths, 74% of industrial deaths – some of the most glaring areas of male disposability. Males disproportionately make up the vast majority of the homeless population. Also, males have long been ignored as the victims of domestic violence that they often are at the hands of their female wives or partners. Marc Angelucci proved the misandrist unconstitutionality of California’s domestic violence laws in his win in appellate court in Sacramento in 2008.1 Title IX witch-hunts on college and university campuses has been another area where men have been victimized, and there are other areas beyond the ones I’ve mentioned. If all those areas of discrimination were happening to the female sex, the outrage would be so great that doors would be pounded down in legislative halls with calls to remedy the unfairness and abuse.

It is long past due that male victims are recognized, cared about, and remedies found for all the ways that males are discriminated against, abused, and victimized in American society.
