Nur acht Prozent der Deutschen ordnen sich dem feministischen Lager zu. Diese acht Prozent sind aber so gut verankert in Leitmedien, Politik und dem akademischen Sektor, dass sie die Geschlechterdebatte beherrschen – mit allen Nachteilen, die eine solche Alleinherrschaft mit sich bringt: So werden feministische Behauptungen nicht hinterfragt, sondern einer schreibt sie unkritisch vom anderen ab. Stellt jemand diese Behauptungen ausnahmsweise doch in Frage, wird er als “antifeministisch” und damit “rechts” abgeurteilt.
Das “Lexikon der feministischen Irrtümer” durchbricht dieses Raster.
Sales marketers, advertisers and politicians are masters of manipulating our cognitive bias towards the familiar. And the familiar doesn’t have to be factual to become the accepted truth.
Oddly, complaining about it can do the opposite to what is desired, as it repeats the original lie. This is a propaganda coup, since getting people to ask if something is the truth (were the Twin Towers destroyed by planes?) actually reinforces that it is the truth.
All it takes to remove the lie is to follow the same tactic of repetition to put facts back in the position of truth.
In a new draft proposal, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) say they will end their program of infant circumcision in Africa.
They have been using an unsafe circumcision device that was sued out of business after causing too many botches – the Mogen Clamp.
They now plan to use the ShangRing device: an untested device that will be tested for its botch rate on African adolescents.
The PEPFAR guidelines reported are only a draft, so there is a chance for action.
To those not well versed in the manner in which policy narratives have changed in the last dozen years, prepare yourselves for the radical revision of the meaning of the word “equality” which is now politically and judicially established.
Do not imagine that these are mere philosophical niceties without import in the real world. On the contrary, they have a profound impact on the lives of at least hundreds of thousands of people annually.
…But conceding the “gendered nature” of domestic abuse perpetuates the myth that domestic abuse is overwhelmingly perpetrated by men upon women, that women perceive the harm of such abuse far more acutely than do men, and that domestic abuse is specifically a tool used by men to maintain patriarchal power and control over women.
All these claims are refuted by empirical evidence…
This is lamentably by no means the only reason to be concerned that long-cherished principles of justice are now being overturned. But that’s another story and I’m out of time.
Sideshow Bob impersonator Mona Eltahawy stole the show on a recent Q&A feminist special episode with her deranged comments.
Representing oneself in court is very difficult, let alone in a Title IX case where a wide array of facts, procedures and legal precedent must be carefully laid out.
It’s all the more noteworthy that a disabled veteran suing his former university for anti-male bias has successfully represented himself, to the point where his lawsuit will move into discovery.
Too many women map out their lives with work at the centre and eventually wish they hadn’t, writes author Suzanne Venker. Her inbox, loaded with women’s emails saying they wish someone had told them this sooner, has resulted in an article.
1. Women Don’t Need Men
2. Men and Women Are the Same, Or Gender Is a Social Construct
3. The Biological Clock Isn’t Real
4. A Career Is More Meaningful Than Marriage and Children
In committee, there was a shocking level of bias shown against male victims (or perhaps for female perpetrators).
The Fawcett Society, the UK’s longest-living feminist group that must make Fawcett turn in her grave every day, has been having problems with numbers again.
A study of gender bias claimed that orchestras that held “blind auditions” favoured women. This has been cited hundreds of times as proof of discrimination against women. But what the report actually revealed was that blind auditions had a slight favour for men.
