An Open Letter To Donald Trump From Some Angry Women.

I found this blog post on Twitter and had to reblog it. I know I’m not the only American woman who hates Trump. Trump lost the female vote weeks ago but in my view, the first debate where he interrupted Clinton 51 times really sealed the deal.

Remember folks, women are not sexual objects. We are human and fuck yeah, we are over 50% of the voting population. If you’re a sexist, violent male asshole, we won’t vote for you, and that will cost you an election.

Take note Republicans. Your need for a small government, except when it comes to controlling women’s reproduction, will never get you elected President again. The problem is the entire GOP, not just Trump.

I knew I wasn’t the only woman who seethed at her TV or computer whenever Trump opened his anus face to spew his bullshit. Trump will lose in November and the main reason he’ll lose is due to his woman hating.

Fuck you Donald Trump~ sincerely, American women.

Dear Mr. Trump… can I call you Mr. Trump? Is that ok? I want you to be happy, that’s very important to me.

Before I get started, let me say this letter isn’t from all women. The Trumpettes surely won’t approve of this message. But this is from most women.

We see right through you. We have all known you at some point. Your ways are not unfamiliar to us. We see through you because we’ve been dealing with you our whole lives.

We heard you call women pigs. And disgusting. And stupid. And bimbos.

We watched as you called a former Ms. Universe “Ms. Piggy” and then spent four days continuing to insult her.

We see your weakness. Your lust for attention at any cost, your need to denigrate women. We see all of it. And we’re mad.

Yes. We’re mad. And fired up. And here’s the thing about us……

Mancheeze Takes On Game of Thrones

I know it’s Summer and most of us are off enjoying the season. I’ve been ruminating on what direction I want to take next. If you’ve been following me on Youtube you’d know I’ve started to do videos again, mainly on the transborg. As soon as I started reporting the crimes by transMALES against women in short videos, I started getting strikes on my account. I even had one video removed for ‘violation of privacy’ even though the entire story of this man in a dress was all over the news. I’ve never violated anyone’s privacy and don’t intend to.

So I was thinking to myself ‘what next?’ and I’ve decided to attempt a feminist analysis of HBO’s Game of Thrones. This is a big undertaking for me because my computer is bursting its memory and my OS is so old that all programs I try to download to assist me will not work on such an old OS. Even my browser has stopped updating programs.

I’ve been a fan of Game of Thrones since a friend told me I had to watch it. I played catch-up at the end of Season 1 and  was instantly hooked. I downloaded the original books ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ by George RR Martin and read those as well. Martin is not finished with the books so we’re all awaiting the final parts but HBO has done a remarkable job in bringing his books to life.

The books are far different than HBO’s interpretation of them, especially when it comes to portraying women. HBO’s gratuitous female nudity and sex scenes are all over the top, and that’s where I come in.

In Season 1, a main female protagonist Danerys Targaryen is married off to a Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo. In the books, their wedding night is portrayed as somewhat awkward (since they can’t understand each other’s language), yet tender. HBO took that scene and portrayed it as a rape with Danerys sobbing as Khal bent her over doggy-style and penetrated her on a beach. HBO has pornified Game of Thrones to the Nth degree.

A great story like A Song of Ice and Fire doesn’t require pornification. Maybe HBO thinks today’s young men won’t watch otherwise? HBO’s translation is definitely a sign of the times, epecially because scientists who want to study porn addiction can’t find a single male who doesn’t masturbate to it.

For the rest of us, you know, the 51% of the population that doesn’t enjoy male sexual violence against women, Game of Thrones leaves us with a sour taste in our mouths. Every episode is a reminder of our sexual objectification. Our collective subordinate status hasn’t changed much since medieval times.

HBO is about to complete the 6th season of Game of Thrones and plans have already been made for the 7th. I’ll be doing a video on each episode, critiquing it with a radical feminist eye. Each season contains 10 episodes so this will be a very long project. If you would like to help me please donate to the cause.

My first video will appear in September.

 

Milwaukee Pride Parade strips Veteran Lesbian Activist Miriam Ben-Shalom of Grand Marshall Honors

Lesbian mentor and activist booted from Milwaukee Pride for recognizing WOMEN are a distinct class and that we are entitled to our own spaces and unique women’s culture.

She was kicked out of Pride by MEN who are demanding she recognize their psychological delusions as fact.

She’s a SHERO.

The nameless members of the Milwaukee Pride Parade Board of Directors stripped legendary rights activist Miriam Ben-Shalom of her honored spot as Grand Marshall of the June 12, 2016 “Heroes of Pride” event after men monitoring her Facebook page noticed women had made posts there that were critical of the idea of heterosexual “male lesbians”.

Miriam Ben-Shalom will be a familiar name to Lesbian and Gay Rights activists and historians. She was the first openly homosexual individual to be reinstated into military service after serving as plaintiff in multiple lawsuits and refusing a cash settlement.

After serving in the Israeli Army as an Armored Personnel Carrier driver, she enlisted as a Staff Sergeant in the United States Army from 1974-1976, when she was dismissed on the basis of homosexuality, and served again from 1987- 1990 following her reinstatement after a decade of trials. She was then discharged, yet again, on…

Blaming Marie

Many of you know about Jian Ghomeshi so I won’t go into who he is. He’s just another in a long line of violent men who go after women to prove their dominance. This post is about his female lawyer, Marie Heinen.

Before we go any further, you can read the official judgement here.

I’ll quickly summarize the judgement if you don’t want to read it. Ghomeshi was acquitted. The Judge called the women liars. That’s as simple as it gets.

Marie Henein is being blamed by other women for taking the case. She’s being accused of betraying her sex. I think this is wrong-headed and I’ll tell you why.

Marie didn’t make the rules. She’s not responsible for the law. Blaming her is like blaming a perfectly functioning traffic light for a car accident. The reality is, she did her job and was paid for it. Marie did choose to take the case for money. There’s nothing wrong with that.

The real problem: the law.

I’ve been saying this for years. We have to change the law. Crimes like sexual assault are difficult because the law is set up to fail women. If we switched to a preponderance of evidence standard instead of beyond a reasonable doubt, women would benefit and I believe this will help prevent sexual assault because men won’t be able to use the current system to sit back and watch women get character assassinated. The current system is broken.

Universities in the US are using this legal standard to prosecute sexual assault. Now whether or not you think Uni’s should prosecute these cases on campus is not the issue. The issue is that sexual assault is a crime that usually involves two people and only two sides. This means that trying sexual assault cases usually comes down to character testimony. The victim (usually women) are put on a character trial, not a fact finding trial.

I also think that in sexual assault cases, the perpetrator must testify. Jian Ghomeshi just sat there in court with a smirk on his face while these women got victim blamed on the stand.

Now I’m not a lawyer. I’m a woman who was raped who never went to the police because I knew, like all women do, that it was pointless. I didn’t want to be re-victimized and character assassinated in front of my friends and family and make no mistake, that’s what sexual assault trials are.

Marie Henein is not to blame. The law was created by old, white men who were mostly concerned about protecting their property of which women are considered. Look at the evolution of sexual assault law and you’ll see that men made the law to protect their interests, not the interests of women.

Henein was simply working within a broken system that was never meant to benefit women who are raped and sexually assaulted by men. It’s easy to blame her but I think it’s pointless to do so. If we want to move forward we must change the law.

 

 

Update; BernieBros and more

Hey everyone!

I truly am enjoying my time-off. After going 3 solid years running this place I didn’t realize just how exhausted I was. This break has been exactly what I’ve needed.

During this time I’ve been paying close attention to the political situation in my home country and watching as the USA gets torn apart by Trump. He reminds me of an MRA. He talks tough but has no idea what he’s talking about. He’s an authoritarian. He’s a misogynist. He attracts MRA’s like flies on shit. Hell, some MRA’s are calling him ‘Daddy.’

You’re probably wondering who I support in this election. I know that I’ll vote Dem and I really like Sanders. The only problem is Sanders is using misogyny in his campaign and I can’t tolerate that. I can hear Dworkin’s reminder that men on the left are just as misogynist as men on the right. BernieBros don’t disappoint.

I just spent half an hour trying to explain to a BernieBro how ‘Bern the Witch’ is misogyny. Ultimately, he just name-called me which shows me he doesn’t quite get it. His first argument was ‘he’s only talking to HER.’ Apparently, you’re not a misogynist if you only pick one woman to focus your misogynist rage at.

I’ve also been researching the prostitution issues in the UK during this time as well. There’s a district in the UK (Leeds) that is set up as a legalization area. It’s a disaster, of course. The city council made the district a permanent one just after a prostituted woman was murdered in that very district. The streets are littered with used condoms, needles, and shit. Women and girls who live in the district are being propositioned by johns. The male violence against prostituted women doesn’t stop when you sanction it legally. It gets worse.

Those two subjects have taken up much of my time. The Mancheeze Newsletter first issue is in progress. Those who have ordered it can expect the first issue soon. There’s an upcoming Manbawl in London that I’ll be covering as well as A Voice For Men’s latest doxing. If you haven’t ordered you can go here to do so.

Thanks to those who have signed up!

 

 

Thanks To My Matrons

Thank you to those who contributed to my last fundraising effort. Without the few who donate, I wouldn’t continue. I do wish more women would value this work I do and I’m reminded of a conversation I had with one of my best donators a few months ago. She suggested I charge a subscription fee and it’s becoming clear that this is a good idea.

I’m thinking of using Patreon (gosh, why can’t it be Matreon?!) to solve this problem. I thought Pay Pal was the easiest way for people to donate but maybe this is not the case. I will still keep Pay Pal because I know that some people will still want to use that. So while I set up some sort of subscription process I’ll release a few small articles. I’ll save my big ones for subscription only.

I don’t know how long the transition process will take but stay tuned. I might have to switch to another platform to deliver the subscriptions. In fact, it’s probably the only way.

I’m always willing to hear suggestions so feel free in the comment section below.

 

Street Violence

Most of you think I’m going to tell you a story about yet another man harassing me on the street. And you’d be right 99.9% of the time. Today I’m going to tell you about almost being hit in the face by a woman on the street.

I was hobbling down the street, on my way to the doctors, scarf on my head and my characteristic silver tuft of hair (kinda like Catherine MacKinnon’s) sticking out in the breeze. I was almost at the corner when a woman flew around it, looked me square in the eyes, and reached back for a hit. She had something red on her face which I now recognize was probably blood. She reached back and with my jaw being so traumatized I thought ‘Oh shit, here it comes!’

Then nothing.

She was muttering something under her breath that I didn’t make out but she waited until she was past me to let out that fist. I caught the air of it and exhaled. I was grateful she didn’t hit me in my jaw. I already have enough problems going on I certainly didn’t need more trauma to that area. Hell, people probably think I was hit anyway due to the fact I’ve been walking around with an ice pack on my face in broad daylight.

We have to dig deeper into this event because men’s rights activists are gonna read this and immediately start their chanting about women being just as violent as men, which simply isn’t fucking true. We have to understand context when it comes to violence.

I have to examine why this woman wanted to hit. I was just the unlucky person that came around that corner and I’m certain of that. Something had just happened to her. She actually looked like a prostituted woman and there are several where I live. In fact, her face being bloodied certainly added to that suspicion and this is where we can be certain that she was roughed up by a man just prior to seeing me. I was the smaller target she could release on without getting the beating of her life.

If she had tried hitting him, it would’ve probably been totally ineffective and that’s what we have to keep in mind. When MRA’s do their silly routine where they whine that women are equally as violent as men, you gotta just laugh at them. Being the biological determinists that they are, you gotta love how that theory goes out the window when it comes to their misogyny. Men are bigger and stronger than women on average. It doesn’t matter if a 5 foot woman tries hitting a 6 foot 2″ man. He probably won’t feel it. If he hits her, like most MRA’s wet their pants dreaming about, she WILL feel it. In fact, he’ll most likely knock her out.

So this bullshit MRA’s peddle about ‘self defense’ and ‘violent women’ is utter tripe. There’s just no way that most women can hurt most men, unless women decide to shoot the bastard or stab him in the heart, but again, that’s very rare. It’s usually men who have the weapons and if a man is a batterer AND he has a gun, the chances of him killing his wife or girlfriend just went up fourfold.

We have to keep in mind the context here too. This woman that ‘play acted’ hitting me was only doing it because of HIS violence. She was probably tired of being beaten by her pimp and saw me, a petite-bodied person that she could get away with hitting. The thing is: SHE NEVER ACTUALLY HIT ME and her punch was pretty weak too. Women have a tendency to pull their fists behind their head at an angle, not straight back to get the most strength. We just don’t learn HOW to punch properly due to gender. This is another reason why I wasn’t probably going to be too damaged even if she did catch me. It’s also why men aren’t bothered either by a punch.

Just thinking about what would’ve happened if she had made contact really put a wrench in my day. I would’ve had her arrested and charged for assault. I would’ve gone to court etc. I don’t give people a pass. If you hit me, you can be assured you’re going to jail and you will have a criminal record.

When I was much younger one woman made the mistake of hitting me in the head with a high heeled shoe. She thought she was the queen bully of the town I lived in. She was jealous that her boyfriend had eyed me up some months prior and she hid in a dark corner of a parking lot near midnight and jumped me from behind with that stupid shoe, which was so worn down the nail was sticking out of it. It did quite a lot of damage to my head in the few seconds she was on my back, and I bled out pretty bad. Luckily, I was with someone and he picked her up and off me and took me home and then to the hospital to get several stitches and criminal photographs.

Needless to say that didn’t end well for her in the long run. It just happened that the person who witnessed the whole thing, my boyfriend, was the son of a Mass State Trooper. She was fucked from start to finish.

I’ve had experiences with violence so when MRA’s quote Murray Straus I have to laugh. The point here is that while yes, I was attacked by a woman, the only guy around, my boyfriend, literally lifted her off me with one arm. Women can get into with other women but not against a man. Hell, even if two women attacked my boyfriend he could’ve easily defended himself no problem.

Murray Straus’ ‘research’, and I say that wearily, fails when it comes to context. For example, a couple are verbally arguing. He uses his larger and stronger body to block her exit. To me, that’s physical violence but Straus wouldn’t count it as such on his very simplistic, stupid scale. So he’s blocking her in and she decides to push him to try to get away from him.

OH NOES! SHE’S A VIOLENT WOMAN!

That would’ve been counted as the ‘violent act.’

He then hits her and knocks a couple of her teeth out. That’s also counted as a violent act but the point is, Straus would simply say they are equally violent when everyone knows that it’s truly him who is causing the violence because he is using his larger body to trap her and his violence caused the significant injuries. This lack of context is why Straus’ measurements and his research are utter shite.

This is why MRA’s fail so badly. This is the ‘research’ they cackle about as if it’s important. Anyone who measures domestic violence that way is going to miss the point. This is why it is crucial that libfems stop mimicking MRA rhetoric regarding domestic violence. I’ve watched libfems do this to my utter dismay. Women are not as violent as men. Not even close.

The next time you see a libfem repeat the line that ‘women are just as violent but men commit more serious injury’, please correct them. MRA’s think if they scream the same thing loud enough, that people will believe them and it’s worked in some cases. The serious DV researchers don’t take MRA’s seriously because they know they’re cherry picking the worst research on the planet but libfems, for some odd reason, are repeating it.

 

Update on My Health Issue

Things haven’t been so good for me lately with my health issue. I won’t share the diagnosis I got last week because MRA’s , well men in general, are violent and sadistic and they will use it to try and harm me. As I’ve stated several times, I already have open police files on a few of them and whenever they turn up I give more information to the police. That violent man Dan Perrins still gets people to tweet me from new accounts and he still stalks me even though he’s been blocked for a very long time.

I just wanted to let you know that my health issue is not as simple as I thought it was to fix. It will take time. I’ve suffered for a month with this issue and it’s been the most challenging time of my life to date. I put it on par with my spinal injury from the late 1990’s when I fell 30 feet down a rock face and onto railroad tracks while racing mountain bikes. Yes, I was extremely athletic at that time. I outrode most men.

Anyway, I’m gonna have a winter fundraiser to help me cover what will be unavoidable medical costs. Yes, we do have Canadian health care but some things just aren’t covered. For example, when I fell last year and broke my ribs, scapula and collar bone I couldn’t get the Ministry to pay for a one-meal-a-day food program. It cost me $6 a day to get the worst food ever simply because I couldn’t get out to buy groceries, nor could I even cook, for 3 months.

I’ve been legally disabled since 2003 and while they do pay for most things, they fail in a big way in some of the basics, like food for people who can’t walk!

Now I’ll not end this on a bad note because if you listened to my video a week ago you’d kinda get the idea that I’m a very focused, determined, and positive person. I know right!

Those of you that have supported me I am truly grateful.

Life is just so fucking hard sometimes. Things were going really good, and then something like this comes along.

My entire life is changing once again just like it did after my mountain bike accident.

Please be patient. I will be posting things. One thing that keeps me going is my work. To me, this is my job, my life’s work, my calling. I have carved out a little job for myself. I started on Twitter with a little egg picture and 0 followers. Until about 2 years ago I didn’t even use Twitter. Now I’ve got a wonderful following and am following a great bunch of radical women. Each day I try to find another radfem to follow.

Disabled people have to be very creative. I did work in the past as long as I could, until about age 43, and then I admitted to myself that I couldn’t even do a part time job which is the last job I had to give up. I loved that job, even though my boss was a bit of an ass.

I was very active in my community during my mid to late 30’s and then I had to start slowing down. They want to put me in a wheelchair now but I’m stubborn and will walk as long as my legs will carry me.

So, I’m creating a new winter banner and the fundraising will begin again to help me get through this very difficult time.

Update

Hi sisters.

I’m finally starting to slowly mend. It helps me to write and get it all out. I had a longstanding infection in my lower jawbone. I’m trying to figure out how I got it and I think it was when I broke a piece off my molar. I tend to grind my teeth and I put more stress on them than they can take. So a piece broke off my lower left molar and I had a root canal and a crown put on it.

The premolar in front of it needed a filling and I got one. This all happened about 2 months ago. The infection started then and carried on for 2 whole months without me noticing the pain, simply because I’m always in pain from my disability. You get used to having pain constantly. The infection just carried on and on until I finally noticed pain 2 weeks ago.

I got antibiotics, took them for 5 days and they weren’t working. So I went to a local clinic last Saturday and the doctor gave me a strong anti inflammatory and dilaudid. Neither worked. I ended up at the hospital the next night with half my face looking like I got beat up. The ER doctor took one look at me and gave me a new antibiotic and implored me to get it NOW and start taking it. He also gave me stronger pain medication. He was worried that I may have to go on IV antibiotics because the infection was so deep and longstanding and none of the pain medication was working.

After taking the new antibiotic for a mere 24 hours I could feel some of the swelling going down. This past monday I had my premolar pulled and on Friday I had my molar pulled. They don’t actually pull your tooth out, they push it and twist it out. I’ve had enough novocaine shots to last me another 5 years! I’ve been on antibiotics for 2 weeks now and very strong anti inflammatories around the the clock.

I’m finally starting to mend. Finally. I wish I didn’t have to lose 2 teeth but it’s the only way to heal the infection. I’ve been sleeping 12 and 16 hours a day respectively.

Once I’m not taking Toradol around the clock I’ll be back in business. I want to make some changes. I just don’t know what yet. I’m trying to stay positive and think of the future.

I appreciate the well wishes I’ve gotten.

I’ve been keeping myself busy with a Japanese Colouring book:

What’s Up With Me and Open Thread

For the last week I’ve been pretty sick. I have an infection in my jawbone and it’s the worst pain I’ve ever had in my life. In between trips to clinics and the hospital it’s been a helluva weekend.

I just had one tooth taken out and I might lose another. I am prone to infections because of the medications I take for my disability. It masks tooth pain so that by the time I notice the pain, the tooth is gone and has to come out.

Those who donated to me I am grateful to. I didn’t get close to my goal so that I can update this computer, not even half of my goal, and that’s partly my fault. I should have fundraisers more often than I do and I will start doing that. Some have even suggested I start a subscription basis for my blog and I’m thinking Patreon and getting back into video making.

I’d would like to thank those that donated to me. You helped me relieve the pressure of being disabled. I had to pay outrageous amounts to get to hospital and back. One male cabdriver took advantage of my illness and charged me an exorbitant amount of money. Yeah, we need female ONLY taxi services in Canada!

Anyway, I gotta go for now. I need a few days off so I figured we could have an open thread to talk about schtuff and see what I should do continuing forward. Check my back catalogue for some great posts and there are a few new videos on my Mancheeze Youtube channel.

I’m always taking donations so if you’d like to support my efforts, please see the Paypal button in the sidebar. You don’t need a Paypal account to donate.
