So much for the season of goodwill
Posted on December 30, 2010
I had a lovely Xmas. I especially enjoyed the bits of it that I spent away from the Internet.
As for on the Internet itself. Well, these (unpublished) comments were submitted under this piece on Xmas eve:
“There’s too many ugly man-hatin’ lezbeens a-wailing an’ a bitchin’ in this-a- here forum.
Probbly smell worse’n ma mule after a week a’ hauling hoss-manure.
Guess ah’ll mosey along -find me some nice-smellin, nice -lookin gals that don’t sound like rattlers hissin. Hell, rattlers got more sense and ain’t nowheres near as pizenous!
You scrivened: “Linda et al. Don’t bother spending hours composing any more comments for this thread, because they either won’t get through, or I will delete them. My blog my rules: now run along and go and play somewhere else”
Typical femi-Nazi horse-shit- -”my mind’s made up, don’t bother me with the truth” -and don’t let anyone else know either, eh, Cath?
No wonder Western men are choosing not to marry sour, self-centred witches like you. Your blog sucks.”
“Charming,” I thought, “and a happy Xmas to you too George, whoever you are.”
Then last night I discovered I was being followed on Twitter by someone calling themselves The Missing Minister: “The Missing Minister for Men here, with the hottest sex equality issues and angles the mainstream media won’t touch, from the front line of gender politics.”
Here’s their tweet stream, but be warned, they’re a nasty fucker, whoever they are – @MIN4MEN
Take this tweet for example:
Now ordinarily I would do my best to ignore shit like this. After all, why give whoever is behind this the oxygen of publicity and all that?
But then something about “The Missing Minister for men” rang a bell. And I remembered Reece Wilkes.
In November 2009 I wrote about 16 year old budding MRA Wilkes and his interview with the then Shadow Foreign Secretary William Hague. During the interview Wilkes had asked Hague why there “couldn’t be a minister for equality who could deal with both men’s and women’s issues instead of there just being a minister for women.” But as I and others were quick to point out, there was at the time (and there is now) a minister who fulfils precisely that role: the Minister for Women and Equalities. In November 2009 it was Harriet Harman; now it’s Theresa May
Here the original article – Sticking to the MRA script
And here’s a link to Wilkes’ interview on the radio show Mens Matters on Express FM. Yes, that radio show, the Mens Matters radio show that’s hosted by none other than Portsmouth Tory Councillor James Williams. It’s a small world isn’t it!
Anyway, my article prompted the usual bile from Men’s Rights Activists, including this heartwarming comment that was posted on a thread at antimisandry.com:
“I can’t believe this, I’m not taking the word of a fat flabby-arsed woman who ridicules and mocks a 16 year old young man whose only want is equality, he has not suggested women “lose out” in any way, just that men be treated as fairly as women, he’s not exactly asking for much, yet this vile specimen mocks the young guy? She’s a fucking cretin, and I doubt there would be a man who would write such bile about a young woman who only wanted to be treated fairly, she’s a disgusting pig who, strangely enough, looks like an extremely ugly gay man who is riddled with AIDS, how unfortunate for her scabby arse, looking like that she’ll be unable to land a man or a woman, even a repulsive one.”
Then in October 2010, Reece Wilkes got in touch with me via email. He had, he said, written a “dissertation“, which he thought I might find an “interesting” “new addition” to current research. He suggested I keep an eye out for it, as he would shortly be posting it on the Internet. I emailed him back to thank him, and assured him I would do just that.
Then November came, and with it another email from the now 17 year old Wilkes, this time with a link to said “dissertation.”
I read it.
And I decided to ignore it.
It would be too cruel to young Reece, I thought, to submit his work for critique to the readers of this blog.
But what the hell. If Wilkes isn’t behind the vile @MIN4MEN Twitter account, he’s most certainly allied with those who are.
So here’s the “dissertation“. Enjoy!
Oh god, do I have to read it Cath? It’s just that I’ve spent all December reading misogynist garbage about the Assange case. I think my ‘people who are full of shit’ basket is all full up.
Kudos to you for wading through it though.
Flabby, Scabby Arse? By Billy Ray Cyrus?
No, of course you don’t Rowan. In fact I can give you a quick précis here:
1. Fathers are treated unfairly in the family courts and Fathers 4 Justice was the best thing since sliced bread. Oh, and men should be allowed to prevent women from having abortions.
2. Women’s health gets loads more funding than men’s. It’s not fair that so much money is spent fighting breast cancer. Circumcision is the same as FGM and there should laws against it.
3. Women lie about rape and laws around violence against women are all about feminist ideology, not based on scientific fact or reasoning.
4. The media hates men and some adverts even go so far as to poke fun at them and it hurts their feelings.
That’s about it I think.
Meh. I read the first few pages and it’s so limp, repetitive, poorly researched, incoherently argued and unoriginal that I can’t even get annoyed. This is my favourite bit so far (p.5):
‘In many countries men are denied the rights to stop their partners/wife’s from having an abortion.’
Ahahahahahaha!!! ‘Rights’ – you keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
The para goes on, ‘This means that women can effectively abort a fetus entirely without the father’s knowledge, or his consent.’ Yes Reece, exactly! Exactly!! You begin to understand.
Sorry about all the shit you receive, Cath, and thanks for keeping on.
I wish I’d read your precis before wading through the whole sorry text. Salutary lesson in bad essay writing though, and a morbidly fascinating insight to the misogynist mindset.
How can it be possible for men to be SO wrong? My guess is that their skills for critical analysis and logic are completely stunted by the effects of growing up male in this society and being told you are right by virtue of having a penis.
My favorite part is, “…like the devil itself, hides within the murky desolate caverns…”
Holy chthonic yoni-phobia!
No wonder Western men are choosing not to marry sour, self-centred witches like you.
Well why would a man hating lezbeen want to marry a man? Doh!
Dear me, do go on believing that you’re CHOOSING not to have a girlfriend chaps, don’t let me disturb you….
ROFL @Tim Footman (high praise from a man hating lezbeen)…
I fear you’re looking for logic there, and there is none…..
Course we could be men pretending to be women for all yer dude knows, but surely that would never happen on the internet….
Anyone notice the ‘elephant in the room?’ The fact MRAS commonly engage in attempting to humilate and insult women who dare (yes dare) to challenge male domination over women. MRAS commonly engage in personal attacks, because they cannot refute the central issues and anyway no humans were harmed because MRAS refuse to accept women are human. That privilege and right is reserved for males!
Yet more evidence (as if we need to be reminded) of how widespread misogyny and male contempt and male hatred of women continues unabated.
Remind me of the last time a feminist hurled spiteful insults at MRAS and called them ‘pigs’ or worse.
But of course it is acceptable for men to hurl sexual insults at women because unlike men we are not human and there are no laws concerning male hatred and male contempt for women, whereas promoting racial hatred is illegal as is promoting homophobic hatred (but I forget both these issues include men which is precisely why these laws were passed).
The phrase for such male contempt and hatred of women is ‘rampant misogyny and male hatred of women.’
By the way, Reece M. Wilkes you got it in one concerning this little gem ‘If a society/government tolerates any inequality against any group ultimately one is left in a society full of disheartened individuals etc. etc.’ Wilkes you are of course referring to women are you not? Then there is that ‘little issue’ concerning your grammer and construction of sentences Wilkes because you clearly have not benefitted from your educational opportunities. But do not despair since you are clearly destined for a career in politics since you focus on important matters – namely men’s rights and men’s interests are what makes our ‘world go round’ and women – well we aren’t human are we in your misogynistic world and hence we have no claim to human rights and human dignity.
No wonder you are ‘MRAS’ blue eyed boy!’
Merry Xmas Cath!
Laughing my (no doubt also ‘scabby’ ) arse off at the MRAs, oh they are so predictable.
Good grief. I started reading it, and only made it to the “F4J is the greatest thing since sliced bread”. So, what is Wilkes’ next political move, joining the BNP?
Males seem to be either wilfully ignorant or completely clueless about what it is like to be born female. The tiny few that do cross the ‘gender’ barrier, insist that their poor treatment is due to ‘transphobia’, and not, as it actually is, that females get treated like shit and what they are experiencing is what it is like to be a woman in this society.
The tirade of insults from MRAs to silence feminists really does not work. I don’t care what they think of my appearance or anything else.
There is a possibility the BNP wouldn’t have young Reece – too extreme. After all the EDL disinvited the book burning dude because they found out he was homophobic and racist!
I like the way young Reece is oh-so-worried about the abortion issue being the woman’s choice. Here’s a clue for young Reece – use a fucking condom and you don’t have to face ‘the problem’. It’s like he is pre-emptively worried about all the future sperm he is going to make. Perhaps he should number them?
It reminds me of Monty Python’s Every Sperm is Sacred.
