Men’s rights activists, gathering to discuss
all the ways society has done them wrong

Washington Post, by Monica Hesse

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/1/2014 2:44:07 PM

St. Claire Shores, MI -The feminists hadn’t shown up yet, but they could, at any moment, with their protest signs and screaming. The threat of them was an infuriating and exhilarating specter throughout the weekend, a symbol of the oppression facing the men’s rights activists who had gathered to meet for their inaugural conference. Early Friday before the opening session, a wispy trail of men — mostly white, college-through-retirement-age — waited for the doors to open outside of this Veterans of Foreign Wars outpost in suburban Detroit. One man talked about his ex-wife. A lot of guys talked about their ex-wives.

A lot of snark in the article, female liberal reporter, enough said.

Whaa!!! I´m a victim too! Whaa!

Sitcom´s such as Simpsons and Family Guy, say much more about the kind of woman who would marry a moron, than the moron himself.

#1 you are right. No wonder so many men are sick of women, could you imagine this level of snark should a male reporter slam a NOW convention? Hey they threw Watters out just for being polite and joking around a little.

Look closely at the words she uses. Wispy. Small. Tiny. Juxtaposing a small group against her belief that such concerns are small. Well no, they´re not.

I think its funny that NOWs big convention was at a small Hyatt. Shouldn´t that thing be filling a convention center in a large town? No play from the WaPo on that, however.

The women--and metrosexual males--commenting on the comments area, always a big laugh on that site, should take note.

Men run the world. Simple as that. Always will. Women will never flood the engineering, math, hard science ranks, as they are not interested in it. Simple as that. We can dress it up and say things that are not true, but oh well.

Without men, this entire planet would die within about one year. Without women, men would be lonely but would survive and would likely figure out a way to reproduce externally and continue the population.

I know that sticks heavily in the craw of trash like Monica Hesse, but there it is. No political correctness here.

This past week, my brother broke eight ribs in a terrible fall from his attic. While visiting him in the ICU, he moaned in pain for a split second when they were moving him and the female nurse exclaimed "oh, MEN!!!". I immediately asked her WHY she said that. She just stood there, mouth agape. I told her he had every right to be in pain, and furthermore, she would NOT have ridiculed a woman in the same situation. I am GLAD to hear there´s a group aware of the hateful discrimination towards men, and yes, I will say it, WHITE men.

So, Monica has a "hessey" fit because men have legitimate complaints of unequal/unfair treatment, exclusion, and outright discrimination?
Typical lib. Her feminist issues outweigh any men issues. Besides, it is fun to write snarky, one-sided articles.
Keep telling yourself, Monica, that you got what you have despite being a woman, instead of because you are a woman. Maybe you´ll believe yourself.

No. 4: I wouldn´t be so sure that that nurse wouldn´t have ridiculed a woman. There are quite a few nasty, unsympathetic nurses out there, and some are equal-opportunity nasty. My wife has been on the receiving end of some of their spite.

Poster 6, I wish this were true. She laughed when she made this remark, it was a knee jerk reaction; it was supposed to be funny, she´s probably so brainwashed she doesn´t even realize how offensive it is. I´ve worked and spent many, many hours in hospitals and rehab settings; men are definitely laughed at and ridiculed. There´s no way around it.

#8, just imagine if a man started going on about how they hate when women get bent out of shape about breast cancer. Oh, so you lose a breast, big deal! Not like losing an arm or something important. Stop being a crybaby. Think of all the people who have brain cancer or inoperable cancer. You got off easy!

Imagine that. Heck, if that was mentioned in a PRIVATE conversation it would make news.

Yep, your nurse thinks men are wimps, until one of them gives her a job, a fire fighter saves her kids and her house, a policeman chases off her mugger, a plumber deals with her poopy bathroom back up, a carpenter builds her home, a marine blows away a terrorist planning to come to this country and light off a bomb at her school.

But never mind. They´re all so wimpy.

One area where there men are totally discriminated against is divorce. Why aren´t the NOW harlots screaming for equality in that realm? I´ll bet the rate of divorce would decline greatly if a woman had a 50-50 chance of losing the kids and house.

Observing those giant holes in leftard wommyn´s "logic," maybe it´s time men in the west simply become muzzcrazies. Immediately, they would move from the "scum" to the "god" column in the radfem rulebook. Men would all become little Obamas. Anything goes if you´re Obama.

Then, instead of being constantly pilloried for trying to defend western values, men would be given a pass on many things. Western men would no longer have to worry about personal hygiene, or working to support their wives and all the kids [and kidds, too.] Beatings yes, but support? Woman´s work. They could keep their goats anywhere they liked, including the bedroom. They could play with bombs and guns and children as much as they wanted and in any way they wanted, with the quiet support of all western wommyn. The Second Amendment would suddenly become OK amongst the sweaty Birkenstock brigades.

Tired of something, or even nothing at home? Well, just beat everyone up! Beheading is also now your right, don´t forget. Wommyn will support your choices unreservedly.

I am a woman and raised in an enlightened home of equality and equal opportunity. But I will tell you when my younger brother grew to become a young man, I really witnessed the discrimination toward men (in particular white men), in school, work and athletics...all of which he did and has excelled.

Young men literally are being brow beatened to become wimps. Have an active personality - give the boys drugs & label him ADHD, excel in sports - you are a dumb jock, 4.0 GPA in science, math & physics - your are nerd, handsome & wear nice clothes - you are you know what, very affectionate - you are either a rapist or serial sex harasser, quite & sensitive - you are a "mommas boy".

I could go, but you get the point.

There are huge differences between men & women, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Neither one is better or worse, just different. But this incessant badgering to minimize men in so many ways is just sickening.

Frankly, I think most women like a combo (this is just an example) of a little bit of Rambo (macho), Hugh Grant (humor absent the prostitute thing), Cary Grant (humor and ultimate class), Steve Young (moral values, regardless of religion or any), Reagan (leadership ability) and down-to-earth good looks. Oh, wait I just described my boyfriend.

I also agree with prior posters that the sway of this article was very nasty and facisious (sp?)

The two segments of American society most despised by the lefty/libbers are real men and stay at home moms. ...It has been so since the mid to late 1960´s. America´s moral decline can be traced back to that time frame, although other factors from the hippie/dippie daffies & militant lefties of that day certainly also contributed. ...How far down can we go by following such PC Pied Pipers to the edge?!

Four Terrorists Captured on US Border

Congressman Jason Chaffetz broke this shocking news Wednesday that four known terrorists were apprehended at the US border in Texas on September 10 – the day before the 13th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks. Chaffetz questioned Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on whether he is “aware of any apprehensions of suspected or known terrorists.” Johnson dodged the question. Tonight, Rep. Chaffetz told Megyn Kelly there were four terrorists arrested crossing the US border in Texas on September 10. “There were actually four individuals trying to cross through the Texas border, who were apprehended at two different stations, that do have ties to known terrorist

Two years after initiating their first ride, however, the organization has disbanded, tens of thousands of dollars are unaccounted for and some are accusing the man behind the project of having broken the law.

SANTA ROSA BEACH, Florida – Mike Huckabee bought a beachfront lot here in 2009, a year after his failed bid for the Republican presidential nomination. A longtime friend and political ally of the former Arkansas governor bought the lot next door. They planned to build $3 million vacation villas side-by-side, each with a pool and sweeping views of Walton County’s renowned sugary sand beaches and the azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The only hitch was that their lots lay on a severely eroding beach. Under state regulations, they couldn’t build on the seaward side of the sand dune nearest

Somewhere around midnight, as Tevlin pulled up to an intersection bordering a large wooded area, at least three and possibly four men approached his car.

Who lost Iraq? In so many words, that is now the increasingly potent counter to years of liberal charges that America’s problems in the world can be traced to the Bush-Cheney foreign policy — specifically the invasion of 2003. The question has now taken root, with “Iraq” serving as shorthand for everything from Iraq itself to ISIS, the Syrian mess, Benghazi, and more. Graphically illustrated by the beheadings of two American journalists, a British aid worker, ISIS armies causing chaos in the once-stabilized region. Not to mention the murder of a 19-year old New Jersey college student Brendan Tevlin by

When are boots on the ground not boots on the ground? When they’re in Iraq. You’d be forgiven for being confused about the role of the U.S. military in combating the Islamic State, the band of militants who’ve taken over territory in Iraq and Syria. The Obama administration has announced a plan to roll back its advances with U.S. airstrikes combined with the ground forces of local allies, specifically Kurdish and Iraqi forces. There will be no U.S. boots on the ground, President Barack Obama said, as recently as today. “I want to be clear: The American forces that have been deployed to

´Security Moms´ Are Back—and

Posted By: StormCnter- 9/18/2014 4:49:42 AM     Post Reply
Suddenly, it feels like 2002. Democrats got creamed in midterm elections that year because the women voters they had relied on throughout the Clinton years deserted them. In 2000, women favored Democratic congressional candidates by nine points. In 2002, that advantage disappeared entirely. The biggest reason: 9/11. In polls that year, according to Gallup, women consistently expressed more fear of terrorism that men. And that fear pushed them toward the GOP, which they trusted far more to keep the nation safe. As then-Senator Joe Biden declared after his party’s midterm shellacking, “soccer moms are security moms now.” Unfortunately for President Obama,

Coalition? What coalition? Arab would-be allies in the fight against the Islamic State say (at best): Maybe. Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and other US-allied Arab regimes have sufficient reason to fight the jihadis that threaten their leaders’ hold on power. But they no longer trust America to lead them: We’ve let them down too many times these last five years. Qatar, on the other hand, has long supported extremists nearly as bad as ISIS (or ISIL as governments worldwide for some reason prefer). Yes, it’s recently started to at least pretend that it’s ready to expel the Muslim Brotherhood leaders and

‘CATALIST’: Obama’s Database for
Fundamentally Transforming America

The Democrats and the institutional left have a new political tool that allows them virtually to ignore moderates yet still win elections. This tool, the Catalist database, was employed in the 2012 election. That election defied conventional wisdom: Mitt Romney sought and won independent voters overwhelmingly, but still lost. If you wondered why the conventional wisdom about independents and moderates didn’t seem so wise in 2012, the answer is Catalist. Beyond winning elections, Catalist also allows the Democrats to turn the policy narrative upside down and suffer no political consequence for implementing radical policies which appeal to their base.

Pena Nieto recently criticized Perry´s highly-publicized deployment of National Guard troops to the border as "unpleasant" and "reprehensible." Perry, mulling running for president in 2016, fired back Wednesday with a letter to Pena Nieto saying Mexico isn´t doing enough to control immigration along its border with Central America or to control drug cartels.

The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort.

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us.
