The Consequences of Women Trashing Men

“Every white woman raises a detriment to society when they raise a son,” a nurse named Taiyesha Baker posted on twitter.com recently. “Someone with the HIGHEST propensity to be a terrorist, rapist, racist, and domestic violence all star. Historically every son you had should be sacrificed to the wolves B-tch.” She was subsequently fired from her job at Indiana University Hospital. However, women have been saying negative things about men for years without being held accountable.

There are constructive women, and there are destructive ones. Today it appears moderates have been drowned out by the destructive ones. Baker’s is but one of many destructive statements about men over the last sixty years. Such trash talk is not only a sign of how these women have been viewing men, especially white males, but also points to how mothers, influenced by such talk, may be relating to their male children

The #MeToo movement has made it seem as if there is an epidemic of sexual misconduct by males, and has conducted wide-scale punishment of them without getting all the facts, questioning them or their accusers, and without any trial or conviction. These accusers pay no attention to those who are speaking out against their disguised attack on men and male sexuality, quickly dismissing moderate women or men who speak out against them, treating them as if they are insane.

Over the years militant women have grown used to saying whatever they want about men. Below are some other quotes about men over the last decade, many of them by women in positions of power.

“Since marriage constitutes slavery for women, it is clear that the women’s movement must concentrate on attacking this institution. Freedom for women cannot be won without the abolition of marriage.” So wrote Sheila Cronin, who served as the leader of the National Organization for Women in the 1980s.

Mary Daly, a professor at Boston College who called herself a “radical lesbian feminist,” noted, “If life is to survive on this planet, there must be a decontamination of the Earth. I think this will be accompanied by an evolutionary process that will result in a drastic reduction of the population of males.”

Even Congresswomen have had their say about men. Barbara Jordan one of the first Black women Congressman wrote, “I believe that women have a capacity for understanding and compassion which man structurally does not have, does not have it because he cannot have it. He’s just incapable of it.”

“As long as some men use physical force to subjugate females, all men need not. The knowledge that some men do suffices to threaten all women. He can beat or kill the woman he claims to love; he can rape women…he can sexually molest his daughters… THE VAST MAJORITY OF MEN IN THE WORLD DO ONE OR MORE OF THE ABOVE,” Marilyn French, a radical novelist suggested.

“I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig,” wrote 1960s leftist activist, Andrea Dworkin.

One of the original founders of NOW, Betty Friedan, found herself looked down on by the militant lesbians who began to join and take over the organization in the late sixties. Friedan quit the organization because she saw the movement becoming more extremist and more flagrantly anti-male in its perspective. She was one of the few constructive voices.

Since then our cultural values have shifted towards the militant left. Instead of the word, “equality,” which was at the core of the women’s rights movement when Friedan was active, we now have the word “empowerment.” Today’s ideal woman is a militant activist who kicks ass, especially heterosexual male ass. This, some suggest, is what the #MeToo movement is really about. Men are demonized almost the same way Jews were demonized during the Nazi era in Germany.

Imagine what would happen if men said anything about women comparable to what the women above said about men. Women, particularly the militants who demonize men, would be up in arms and would ask for the heads of the men who said such things to be delivered to them on a platter. It is their way or the highway.

And one can only guess at how many women, influenced by militants, are thinking these things but not saying them. And, in addition, one can only guess how many mothers are saying these things to their little boys. It is no secret that boys today are having problems. It is no secret that they are being left behind.

It appears that the extremist women of today no longer want equality. It appears they don’t want an equal dialogue with men. It appears that nothing other than a complete take-over of our culture will satisfy them. And it appears that they will do whatever it takes to accomplish that goal.

The question is: are the inmates taking over the asylum?
