    Frank Furedi: Paranoid parenting


    Time to fight backThe promotion of paranoia in relation to every aspect of children’s lives accomplishes the very opposite of what it sets out to do. ...The promotion of suspicion towards adult behaviour seriously undermines the ability of grown-up people to play a constructive role in the socialisation of youngsters. The estrangement of adults from the world of children has the perverse effect of leaving youngsters to their own devices and diminishing their security.

    We do not have to abide by the rules concocted by self-appointed experts intent on policing how we engage with children. Nor do we have to acquiesce to a culture that denigrates parental competence and fuels suspicion about adult motives towards children. Although none of us can opt out of the culture that we inhabit, we can challenge it. We can challenge it in small ways, by protesting against the many idiotic but all-too-insidious bans that aim to restrict children’s freedom or adults’ access to youngsters. We can challenge it by encouraging our children to develop a positive attitude towards the outdoors and the adult world. Most important of all, we can challenge it by working together as active collaborators...

  2. What Posesses a Man to Vote for a Woman..

    What Posesses a Man to Vote for a Woman..

    This has always been a rather interesting phenomena to me. What possible advantage is there for any male to vote for a female in order to have her installed into office. Why do men sacrifice their vote to implant a member of the opposite sex into office just so she can ensure that his needs and requirements are totally ignored and only female entitlement is guaranteed on a far greater scale than it is right now..

    Why would one install someone in office who has repeatedly demonstrated that when push comes to shove, she will side with her own sex and ensure that only the wishes and entitlements are ensured for her own sex only..

    Surely, as we have witnessed this sufficiently over the years, women do not give a stuff about men. Whenever there is a choice to be made, when legislation calls for equal treatment or to pander to their own sex, they automatically vote for their own. That action has been demonstrated over and over again and has been glaringly obvious for decades. There is no automatic switch in the female brain that makes that change or makes it even a consideration. Female office holders have always and with regularity, demonstrated that they do not give a damn about our sex and are there solely to benefit their own..

    So why the stupidity, why the ignorance and why the denial. Most men have a good and reasonable understanding about politics and have some inkling about what the candidate stands for. Takes some effort in checking the credentials and past attitudes and behavior of those candidates. Why is it that that same methodology is not used on female candidates. What possible motive does one have to vote a female into office knowing full well or is even guaranteed that ...
  3. Hypocrisy and more article tear-downs....

    by , 20th-February-2012 at 07:25 PM

    I won't teardown the whole article but I'll hit on a few points...

    "When this happens, it becomes disruptive of the discussion that’s trying to happen, and has the effect (intended or otherwise) of silencing women’s voices on important issues such as rape and reproductive rights"

    In what way?

    The thing is, a feminist space — unless the topic is specifically men’s issues — is not the place to have that discussion and neither are spaces (feminist or otherwise) in which the topic is specifically focused on women’s issues.

    Obviously feminism is for women only (and a specific type I may add). It is good to discuss womens issues with the hope of finding a solution. The problem lies in the narrow feminist perspective... Btw what are guys supposed to do?

    What it boils down to is this: Men, not women, need to be the ones creating the spaces to discuss men’s issues.There are a lot of feminist allies who do this, in fact, and there also a lot of non-feminist (or anti-feminist, if you really want to go there) spaces that are welcoming to this kind of discussion.

    Thank you! And guess what? We do, and you hate us for it because "men (or non feminist women) getting together want to put us back in the stone age"...

    Thus, the appropriate response to a thread about women is not to post a comment on it about men, but rather to find (or make) a discussion about men.

    You can't on any feminist site I know unless you act like David Furtelle (who probably has never been a true victim of etc) We here generally will not ignore a women's rights issue if it has legitimacy behind it.

    I have seen multiple threads on women’s issues — especially ones that are trying to talk about the impact of rape and other sexual violence against women — devolve into nothing more

  4. Teardown: Patriarchy style

    by , 17th-February-2012 at 02:29 AM

    I found a link to this list on a fe-man-ist blog (hint it is a blog for manginas)

    Just for the fun of this I will address this list...

    The Male Privilege Checklist1. My odds of being hired for a job, when competing against female applicants, are probably skewed in my favor. The more prestigious the job, the larger the odds are skewed.

    No! in fact I have been turned down due to female applicants. It took me 3 years to even get a decent job...

    2. I can be confident that my co-workers won’t think I got my job because of my sex - even though that might be true. (More).

    True but for a different reason. I can be confident because I worked so damm hard to get the job...

    3. If I am never promoted, it’s not because of my sex.

    Is this a question? And yes most likely it will be because of my sex as I am a good employee.

    4. If I fail in my job or career, I can feel sure this won’t be seen as a black mark against my entire sex’s capabilities.

    Umm actually I can. I been told I am stupid and useless countless of times because I am a male...

    5. I am far less likely to face sexual harassment at work than my female co-workers are. (More).

    Possible, but I have been sexually harassed several times before on a job

    6. If I do the same task as a woman, and if the measurement is at all subjective, chances are people will think I did a better job.

    On the contrary, people either don't notice or demand that I work harder in a job for doing the same thing as a woman.

    7. If I’m a teen or adult, and if I can stay out of prison, my odds of being raped are relatively low. (More).

    I like how you added the prison remark. True my odds of being raped are lower, but the odds that ...

  6. David Icke on why men are being removed from the family

    Quote Quote from Richard View Post
    Most conspriacy theorists have a final "criminal element" which they balme the conspriacy on. Some blame christians, christains blame satan, marxists blame capitalists, capitalists blame marxists (we all love "cultural marxist" conspiracy theory on AM, right!), right wingers blame liberals, liberals blame bigots.

    Oh and let us not forget that each country has it "national champion" conspiracy theorist - the UK has its David Icke, the US has Alex Jones, Russia promotes Max Keiser on RT TV (celtic Druids favourite).

    The truth is that any soceity or republic is at war with itself and various forces seek power. In ancient Rome Julius Cesar had a coup and became a dictator, Naoplen betrayed the French Revolution and Stalin destroyed the hopes of 1917. Similarly in liberal democratic societies we seen a constant threat - in mosst of Europe in the 1930s it came from fascism, today we face a new totalitraian threat.

    Older/first generation conspriacy theory foundations were laid by the civil rights groups, like the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights, and other liberals "protectors"

    Some seek to blame a NWO movement. The truth is any powerful group - or even the government will want more and more power. It is the duty of citizens to be vigilent to stop abuses of power. Hell, if one day the AM/MRM movement got its way, we would be accused of being conspirators! (just as we accuse a feminist conspiracy)

    It if sounds like a never ending battle - well here's the news - you are right! All history is the history of the rise and fall of civilisations and states, the battle of good and evil, or the history of class stuggles (depending on which conspiracy theory you subscribe to).

    Only one thing is 100% sure - as Felixblue said today (?) "conspiracy theory is good business"
  7. There everywhere!

    There's a terrorist behind every rock and bush.
    There's terrorists that tweet.
    There's terrorists that monitor communications.
    There's a terrorist on your street.
    Look, over there there's a terrorist buying cargo pants at the GAP.
    I think there's a terrorist hiding behind that log!
    My gosh, terrorists are everywhere. Two of them just drove past.
    Oh No! The terrorists are in my house, one of them is my dog.
    The terrorists are in the open, hiding in plain sight.
    I'd go out and stop them if I could.
    But the government says it isn't right.
    "Leave the killing to us citizen!" the authorities yell
    Hide under your bed and switch off the light.
    Let the governmentt take care of us and cast a special anti-terrorist magic spell.
    Life is really easy when you close your eyes and dream
    Just make sure a terrorist isn't hiding in your mind, waiting to take you to Hell.
  8. Hamlet as told on the street

    by , 3rd-February-2012 at 09:40 PM
    Now Francisco and Bernardo, they was guardin’ the castle,
    Leanin’ on their spears, not lookin’ for no hassle,
    Havin’ themselves a brew or two,
    When out in the night they hear woo-wooo-wooo.
    And here comes this ghost, lookin’ ragged and rank,
    In a rusty suit of armor, goin’ clank, clank, clank.
    They say, "Hey, Mr. Ghost, are you our dear departed king?"
    But the ghost don’t say one motherfuckin’ thing.
    He goes, "Wooo-wooo-wooo." They say, "Hey, we better split,
    And go tell Hamlet about this shit." So they run find Hamlet, they say, "Hey, sweet Prince,
    Your daddy’s ghost been seen runnin’ hither and hince.
    He’s all full of maggots and he’s grizzly and grim,
    Somethin’s rotten in Denmark and -- whew -- we think it’s him."
    Hamlet say, "Oh, are you sure it’s my pop?
    Did he have matty gray hair with a bald spot on top?
    Did he have bright blue eyes that never know fear
    And a tattoo says GERTRUDE FOREVER right here?"
    They say, "Hey, the thing just flittered by our station,
    We didn’t give him no phyical examination.
    And we don’t know for sure if your daddy was the one,
    But we do know a motherfuckin’ ghost when we see one."
    Hamlet say, "Show me where you spied this spectral klunk
    So I see if it’s my pop, or if you was both drunk."
    So they bring ol’ Hamlet to the spot, and then
    They wait five minutes and wooooo ---
    Here he comes again.
    He got gray skin, black teeth and hollow eyes,
    Beckonin’ like this -- young Hamlet cries,
  9. The Little Boy and the Old Man

    by , 3rd-February-2012 at 09:21 PM
    “The Little Boy and the Old Man

    Said the little boy, "Sometimes I drop my spoon."
    Said the old man, "I do that too."
    The little boy whispered, "I wet my pants."
    I do that too," laughed the little old man.
    Said the little boy, "I often cry."
    The old man nodded, "So do I."
    But worst of all," said the boy, "it seems
    Grown-ups don't pay attention to me."
    And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand.
    I know what you mean," said the little old man.”
