The conference is about to start. There is apparently a live feed to the conference and of course Paul is asking for more money. Here’s the radio feed. The video feed will be on Youtube but there is no link working as yet. Press conference video link isn’t working as yet.
To follow the con on twitter or to add your opinion #icmi14
Here’s a run down, once again of what the speakers and the leader of the conference have to say about women in their own words:
Here’s Paul Elam’s piece where he says ‘women are begging to be raped.’
This page will be updated as time goes on so check back throughout the weekend.
Journalist from Detroit Metro gets propositioned by creepy MRA at Con and there’s only 30 people there. Maybe more will come? So far no protesting, which is excellent. Paul Elam got touched by same man on the back of his hair and says ‘ I WASN’T MOLESTED!’ He called the Detroit Metro as ‘yellow journalism’ and the creepy touchy guy just wanted ‘attention.’ Just goes to show ‘keep your hands to yourself’ doesn’t apply to men. Men are entitled to touch others inappropriately.
Lovely AVFM PR director screaming on Twitter using feminist lingo but completely ignorant as to what it means:
Tune in tomorrow. Conference starts at 845AM! And then? It’s not personal. It’s political, bitches. This is the beginning of change.

‘A new day in history in the ways we discuss men’s and women’s issues.’ Elam Conference opening
Anne Cools Highlights or Lowlights (Your mileage may vary)
‘I’m here to promote common sense.’
When she told the audience she left feminism she got the first applause of con.
”The safest place for a woman is in a home with kids and a husband.’ (Gets second applause of the con.)
‘It’s a foolish woman who pushes the murderous impulses of her mate.’
SUMMARY: Cools rambled a lot and you can tell she’s a Tory. She spoke mostly about men protecting women and the traditional family being undermined by ‘radical gender feminists.’ She victim blamed women killed in intimate partner violence and what’s funny is she slipped in her speech. She said ‘It’s a foolish woman, uh, foolish mate…’
Erin Pizzey or ‘Feminists Killed My Dog’ Lady
I’m going to paraphrase her because she spoke very fast. She blames radical marxist feminists for creating an Evil Empire. Male violence against women is just a way to make money and those nasty feminists would go into women’s shelters and prey on the women there.
Intent on painting women as narcissists, princesses, predators and has problems with domestic violence campaigns, Tara calls education on consent ‘rape culture hysteria.’ She claims Women’s studies are teaching female narcissism which she calls this the ‘Golden Uterus Syndrome’ where women take assets they don’t deserve, force men into fatherhood, assault and/or murder male partner.
She flat out calls feminism a ‘female supremacy’ movement that is dangerous for men. Her short talk was punctuated by a distinct disdain for women and girls especially when she called the ‘Ban Bossy’ campaign a front made to empower female bullies.
She engaged in the classic MRA tactic of switching sexes when it comes to cultural narratives. That approach doesn’t work in a culture that is male dominated and is quite silly.
She had some recommendations to help men and boys
- teach men about abusive women
- teach men about gold diggers
- have pre-custody agreements
- men shouldn’t mingle personal assets with marriage assets
- no chivalry
Again, this conference is more about villifying women and girls than it is about helping men and boys.
Mike Buchanan: Women in the Whine Cellar
I heard Mike go through his schpeel and it’s the same schpeel he’s been yapping about for years. I fell asleep. He’s the one that needs a whine cellar.
This is where I stopped listening and started sleeping. zzzzz
Be back tomorrow but before I go let’s look at AVFM’s misogynist tweet they sent out today
Clueless ingrates think there are air-conditioing bunnies and poop fairies who do the hard work. Men do that work. #icmi14
