Men Have Always Had to Fight For Rights You Silly Feminazi!
Historically, men have never had to fight for a damned thing. Things like reproductive rights, the right to vote, the right to be educated, the right to NOT marry, the right to own property, the right to drive, the right not to be raped by a husband, the right to equal pay, and so on.
Now that there are a bunch of middle class white males hollering from the mountains they have no rights and holding speaking events where their major leaders drone on and on what horrible cunts, bitches and whores women and feminists are, there are protests against them. They’re actually surprised! How dare those feminists stand up and protest us woman haters! They’re totalitarians!
These middle class men have never had to get up off their lily white asses to protest anything except maybe to get a beer. Now they want to silence any protest against them by portraying them as violent totalitarians. MRA’s clearly aren’t used to how this works.
Dean Esmay’s Dishonesty
MRA’s, such as Dean Esmay, want to paint protesters as some sort of violent regime who are silencing men, which is hilarious because anyone who knows anything about totalitarianism knows that the freedom of the people to protest is a vital right that, if taken from the people, becomes a sign of a totalitarian society.
He also wants to lie about why the protestors are actually there in the first place.
Esmay has come out with a new article on AVFM titled ‘What those Who Oppose Our Conference Look Like.’ It is a dishonest propaganda piece. The first video clip is of a protest at a Canadian University against rape/incest apologist Warren Farrell. Dean claims:
The following videos show the intimidating and violent behavior of feminists attempting to stop people talking about male suicidality, male homelessness, the disappearing of males in higher education facilities, workplace injury, depression, physical health, fathering, and other benign but nevertheless important topics. The intention of protestors is simple: to censure men’s voices, and thereby leave unchallenged the feminist discourse that pretends to explain men’s lives.
Feminists and our allies aren’t protesting against anything like that. In fact, it’s feminists that have done more work towards helping men and boys than AVFM and MRA’s will ever do. Who do you think runs crisis lines for suicide prevention? Not MRA’s. Who works in the soup kitchens and anti-poverty groups? Not MRA’s.
Show Me the Money
The only thing Dean Esmay and Paul Elam and crew have ever done is run a blog and collect hundreds of thousands of dollars, which as Paul admitted, he spends on himself. This is really about money.
Imagine if the $30K in security money raised for this conference was donated to actual services that help men and boys? Instead AVFM would rather use money to go after women they don’t like to get their personal information. Remember the appx. $1K Paul held out to find out information about a woman who was, more than likely, attacked by an MRA? AVFM was more concerned with exposing this poor woman as a liar than helping men and boys. That thousand bucks would go a long way at a crisis line.
This ‘bait and switch’ technique Elam thinks will work. By writing one misogynist rant after another, Elam thinks this will gain him mainstream media attention and then ouila! Elam can finally get in there, remove his mask, and people will listen to him talk about men and boys, or so he tells the men that send him money.
The problem is he’s a woman hater and so are the men that work for and flock to the site. There is no mask. THIS is what feminists protest against.
Since the first protests began against MRA’s in 2013, starting with the protest against the rape apologist/incest apologist Warren Farrell, MRA’s have been furious that feminists and our allies are making signs, chanting, and just generally being aware that the “Men’s Human Rights movement’ is simply a male supremacist misogynist movement.
Dean then posts a 40 second clip of Sharon Osbourne, wife of Ozzy, laughing about a cheating guy who’s penis was cut off by his significant other. Nice try Dean. As if Sharon Osbourne identifies as a feminist and/or is somehow leading a feminist cabal to the promised land. Really Dean, you’re really pulling at shreds here.
Quiz: Which of These Things Is Not Like the Other?
Drop Docs of Female Protesters, Send Death Threats to Intimidate Them into Silence
The next video clip Esmay posts is of a feminist protestor who tried explaining feminism to the questioning MRA’s who held video recorders in her face. When the MRA’s wouldn’t listen and kept cutting her off, she got shrill. In trying to paint her as the average protester, which Dean is trying to do, let’s look at what actually happened to that woman.
After the MRA’s had finished taunting her with a video camera, they all went back to AVFM and hunted for her personal information. They eventually got it, posted it everywhere, and harassed her with death threats online and offline. She had to shut down her social media accounts. This is a regular occurrence at AVFM. They video record women protesting and Paul Elam sometimes offers money to other MRA’s to identify the woman: name, address, workplace etc.
Don’t Forget to Harm Women in Detroit Before You Get There
Attacking individual women is what MRA’s consider ‘activism’ and ‘fighting misandry.’ Even before touching down in Detroit for their conference they went after a local teacher who was part of a group protesting them. They posted her private information and some MRA’s sent letters to Detroit School Boards to harm her employment prospects. MRA’s also went after a feminist professor of Sociology from Wayne State calling her a cunt on Twitter.
The last clip is a pretty standard protest clip, a longer version of the previous clip.. People are holding signs and yelling. A fire alarm went off which was promptly used as another propaganda tool by AVFM to smear feminists with. Nobody knows why or how the alarm went off.
Democracy: You Just Don’t Get It
Middle class white dudes clearly don’t get this. Protesting is not taking away your freedom of speech. You don’t have to like it. Protesting is a viable way to express dissent. That’s the mark of a true democratic society. Feminists aren’t protesting you because you’re helping men and boys. We’re protesting you because you’re a hate group. Elam’s plan is working for himself but you’re quite mistaken if you think it’ll work for ‘men and boys.’
*The comment section on AVFM regarding this article is already blossoming into ridiculousness. Here’s Tom Golden, a figurehead of AVFM
It is truly amazing that such hatred can be not only tolerated but in some ways protected. It calls back to the American south in the 1950’s where the authorities were just as bigoted as the population.
If Tom could have it his way, the privileged white male way, he’d have no protesting at any event. MRA’s always compare themselves to black slaves cuz ya know, white men couldn’t go to school, were kept as property, beaten, raped, and forced to work for nothing. Yep. coolstorybro
