Targeting sexism in the most effective way

The Spearhead blog has a post listing feminist law professors by name and University which is titled, "Meet your Oppressors:"

Are you one of the millions of men who has seen his life crumble under the treads of the family law system? Did you ever wonder why hatred and abuse directed toward men was so prevalent in school? Maybe you’re an employer who got screwed in a sexual harassment lawsuit, or an employee who was falsely accused.

Of course, the following list is not comprehensive, but it’s a good start. It shows where they work, and has links to CVs that detail their experience and affiliations. Those who are interested in activism can use the info to protest the nearest school, or if they are alumni to demand an explanation for why the school is promoting sexist, misandrist female supremacists.

The list has been taken from the feminist law professor blog. Are all of these academics misandric female supremacists? I dunno, they might be or they might not. I would want more specific instances and examples of exactly what these professors are doing that is harming men and then address those issues. For example, if they are truly teaching students in the classroom to be sexist, tape a session--depending on the law in your area-- and put it on the web with a warning along with their name and university. Write to alumni and tell them what you found, along with the URL to the video and question whether they want to donate to support such abuse. Use specific examples, not generalities.

I think men's rights activists would be better off targeting more direct instances of injustice such as that of Judge Donald Poppy from Wisconsin who admits that he is sexist when administering court decisions, letting women off for sexual assault when he admits a man would be in jail. Writing letters, protesting near a sexist judge's office or home, and calling his place of business would perhaps make him think twice about his injustice against men. Poppy is running for re-election in April of 2010 and the race is uncontested. Too bad.

Actually posting their names and addresses would be a good thing. Nothing corrects bad behavior like the light of day. State and federal laws protect them from facing justice and mostly prohibits recordings being made in the classroom and courtroom. Let them try and sue to stop these postings and it all opens up to exposure.

I rather like the commenter who suggested that the feminists should be pitted against the Muslims. We all know the fems are mortally terrified of the Muslims, for that is a fortress of misogyny against which western feminism hasn't the spine to attack.

When an elitist, upper class white woman is denied tenure or her Mercedes isn't repaired on time, legions of attorneys will argue she is the victim of sexism. But when a Muslim woman is buried up to her neck and stoned to death for not wearing a veil, or a young European woman is gang-raped by 18 Arab boys, western feminists are as silent as the night sky.

And that is why I regard American feminism as philosophically bankrupt, worthless, and a blight on civilization.

I think the list is too broad. The problem is people who hate or fear men, and it is difficult to believe that every person drawn from that list hates men.

I am certain that a percentage do, but I am also certain that not ALL do. Painting with too broad a brush only works for barns and houses.

@Trey: Then narrow your brush. Don't fall for the "man hatred" thing. Bear in mind that these are attorneys, who are even more $-seeking than media whores and journalists.

Attorneys don't take cases because they believe in the merits of the client. That's childish nonsense. They take them because of the merits of the evidence and the likelihood that it will result in a win. These feminist lawyers know that society will happily tolerate all the man-bashing it can fit on the airwaves or headlines. And there's money in it for everyone except the victim.

I could easily believe, if that list were 100x larger, that every single lawyer would gleefully ruin an innocent man's life if it meant a guilty verdict and another notch on their resume.

After all, part of the feminist mantra is "He's a man and it's a man's world. He can easily recover from the screwing I'm going to give him!"

Ever watch a divorce action?

Kevin M,

As much as they may fantasize about storming that Bastille, they know in actuality it would be like storming a Soviet gulag circa Stalin's regime on a day when the coffee and vodka rations for the guards ran low.

recently my oldest child came to stay with me for a week because his mother couldn`t "handle" him. i discovered that, while my oldest had been with me, the youngest had been left in the mornings and in the evenings while she did 12 hour shifts.

i discovered this when picking my oldest up after school and passing by his house to pick some clothes up.

i inquired where his brother was (he`s 10) and he was nowhere to be found.

i called his mother and she said it was arranged that he was to be with friends.

i went by the friends house and there was no answer, so my oldest and i drove around the nieghbourhood until i saw my youngest walking with two friends from the park.

i called their mother back and asked what he was doing walking around without an adult. she said that it was ok for a short time and not to bother her at work.

the next day i called children`s aid and the woman i spoke to said that it was obvious to her that the mother was taking reasonable steps to ensure the child`s safety as a hard-working woman (her words) and that there was nothing the agency felt warranted further action.

so, my oldest gets pushed out for some minor arguement and the youngest gets left to his owm devices for hours on end.

could you imagine what would have happened if i had treated my children that way?

Dr Alaister- time for you to contact a competent lawyer, and take action against your ex. The people in the Agency will fall in line when they find that a competent is coming after them.

Of course they are "misandric," Dr. Helen. They are women and they have jobs. What more do you need to know?

Although if they did not have jobs, as previous comments on this site have made clear, they would be lazy sponges living off the men in their I'm not exactly certain what it is you fellas want from the women in your lives.

Nah, I'm kidding. I do know what you want: for them to be plastic and inflatible.

Even if they were plastic and inflatable they would still make more sense than you do.

for what daniel, a custody battle?

my children have suffered enough. she has shown a clear distain for my oldest as he looks and act like i do. the youngest is the classic good little boy, which he plays for value.

any legal action against her would only enrich lawyers and further stress my boys.

as the years unfold the children will begin to see more of her behaviour as distressing to them personally.

my oldest is already emomtionally older than she is, which makes the conflict in the home worse for her because he just ignores her i did, just to survive without reacting....which, of course, she wants.

RE: Some Of Them?

I'm no big fan of broad-brush attacks and stereotyping, however, I ask a question....

In light of the socio-political environment found in universities and amongst the graduates of their law programs, what is the likelihood that many of these professors are 'conservative'?

And if there are conservative law professors of the female persuasion, why are they silent? I say 'silent' because I've seen darn few of them speaking out against the misandry that runs rampant through all too many university and college campuses.


[Silence is acceptance.]

P.S. I think I may have seen one on a blog sometime back. But I can't find them for a reference regarding this thread.

That didn't seem very productive. The only U. of Michigan professor, for instance, seems to concentrate on intellectual property law. The guy should have taken the time to actually CLICK THROUGH and see if the profs were the monsters he made them all out to be.

The thing we all need to remember here is Marc Rudov's point that misandrism is enabled by men. White-knighting judges, male advertising execs who pander to housewives, fathers who raise "daddy's little girls" and guys who think they have to grovel and pay money for a woman's company are all to blame for the predicament decent men are in today.

Feminist professors are poisoning the minds of our college students, but the implementation of misandrism is happening in family courts, law enforcement and advertising. Getting those institutions - full of men - under control is the single biggest step towards restoring gender balance.

What about the incident at the U of MD some years ago? That's where the campus feminazis listed every male student as a potential rapist. Why not use their tactics against them? Fighting fire WITH fire might help put a stop to some of the BS going on...

Consider this: women, in their personal lives, always had the power of validation, or "the last word", or "it's my way or the highway". And they brought that power everywhere: politics, education,judiciairy,...
Now, they're overconfident and can afford/tolerated to be misandric, or "put myself on a pedestal while whining at and downgrading manhood".
Men should not tolerate this and react firmly.
I met my boy's maths teacher. She said, after checking his 90% score:
"His mother might be quite intelligent".
"Don't you think it's misandric to say that?"
"No, no, it was a joke ! "
"Nope, you shall be shamed..."
Sure.. a joke on us all.
This beast is not vegetarian: it's a cannibal who feeds shamelessly upon our soul.

"I met my boy's maths teacher."

Insulting your student's parent, even as a joke, is an example of the all-too-common tacky behavior many of us have come to expect from the teaching profession, and another reason why national respect for teachers is not higher.

Our government schools do an horrific job of properly attending to the smart ones, instead preferring to try to flatten the curve and hold back the sharp tools - guaranteeing a lifetime of resentment and chip-on-shoulder attitude from our best and brightest for life.

At the university I went to, they were the stupidest people on campus. By far. And a 4.0 average in "education" is probably equivalent to a 1.0 average in engineering.

And I have heard that from enough people that I think it was not just a quirk of my university.

They actually put the football and basketball players (some of them literally couldn't read) in elementary education just so they could pretend like they were doing some kind of academics.
