As we work our way up to the International Conference on Men’s Issues, we will be re-running many old classics to help people understand the real Men’s Human Rights Movement. Here we reprint one of Karen Straughan’s most famous works.
Emily Matchar of The New Republic got a lot of things wrong in her article about the Men’s Human Rights Movement, but she got a lot right. Girl Writes What, who was interviewed for the article, has a response, and words of advice.
A Voice For Men Contributing Editor Karen Straughan, aka Girl Writes What, has had the most popular YouTube video on feminism for the last couple of years. This classic essay and video by her remain required reading/viewing for anyone who wants to understand the Men’s Human Rights Movement’s criticisms of feminism.
The fact that more and more men are avoiding marriage has both feminists and traditionalist women all in a tizzy – oh, those mean ol’ men! But what neither seem to care about is the shocking truth that men’s feelings matter, too, and that marriage no longer offers men a positive self-image. AVfM’s MGTOW week coverage continues with this transcript of the classic Karen Straughan video.
Is it “rape apology” to try to stop the false reporting of a rape that never happened? Feminists and some government officials think it is, but clearly, they are nuts. Karen Straughan (GirlWritesWhat) brings some sanity and even has distinct policy suggestions that will reduce the crime of rape. Are you listening, feminists? Or are you too interested in shaming men’s sexuality instead?
If you’re still trying to put together what the Mary Kellett/Vladek Filler saga is all about, and why you should be in Portland Maine on Monday July 15 if you can be, Girl Writes What has an article that lays out in written form, in very plain and understandable language, what’s happening. It’s a text version of a recent video she did, which is great for those of you who prefer to read–or want something you can search and reference.
Is Feminism hate? Well we suppose that if you believe it’s about equal rights then it’s not. But we’re starting to get the sense that this “equal rights” thing is a shield for Feminism’s real payload. And that payload is it’s hateful misrepresentation of history known as Patriarchy Theory. And if you believe in the theory that men have oppressed women for thousands of years, GWW is gonna school you.
Women are oppressed in Islamic nations like Afghanistan, huh? Well as is so often the case, gynocentric attitudes frequently prevent us from looking at the situation through the lens of both sexes. Contributing Editor Karen Straughan, in her calm fact-and-logic based manner, eviscerates and challenges things even many men’s advocates believe. It just ain’t so simple.[Illustration by Typhonblue]
