Enough With The Male-Bashing. A good read.

Sexism is alive and well.
By Leslie Knight

You’re probably saying, “True, that!” You probably thought I was talking about anti-female sentiment. I’m not. I am talking about an ever-growing, almost pervasive anti-male sentiment. It began in the ’60s and ’70s with the feminist movement:
“I feel that ‘man-hating’ is an honorable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them.”

Robin Morgan, Ms. magazine editor.
“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.”

–Former Rep. Barbara Jordan
Unfortunately, it didn’t end there.
Misandry can be seen today in the way men are portrayed in commercials, TV shows and the movies. The 1980 hit movie 9 to 5 depicted Franklin M. Hart (portrayed by Dabney Coleman) as a lying, sexist, unfaithful bigot. The Simpsons, American Dad and Everybody Loves Raymond, just to name a few, all portray men as inept, incapable, bumbling buffoons while the women appear to have their act together. PepsiCo’s entire 2011 Super Bowl campaign (see video here) seemed to have a misandric theme. Portray a woman in the same way and a network might not survive the hue and cry.
You might think this is just harmless fun. Is it? The harmless fun of our “entertainment” has made male-bashing an acceptable pasttime while female-bashing will earn any man an immediate rebuke.
So you think that’s entertainment? OK. Try these:
On The Big Picture on April 12, 2011, Thom Hartman, while interviewing Carrie Lukas on the issue of the wage gap, declared that all men should lose their right to vote for the next decade, since mostly men (Margaret Thatcher being the exception) were responsible for the wars. Really? Punish them all?

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Jan. 28, 2011, cohost Mika Brzenzinski opens with the comment to guest “Love Guru” Donny Deutsch, “It’s [family] about self-awareness. I told you to get some.” Then later, while co-host Joe Scarborough and the “Love Guru” began talking about the importance of a man’s job to his self-esteem, she interrupts, calling them (men) self-centered and rebukes them with: “Just. Be. A. Little. More. Self-aware.” Is she arguing just for grins? Or does she believe what she is saying?
We’ve had 40 years of male bashing. Why has it continued? Maybe it is time to stop. The feminist movement was about ending sexism and stereotypes. It was not about creating a new form of sexism.
---------------------

 Even though this was written a few years ago, we see a lot of main stream magazines and women lately taking up the cause of defending the values of men, not because they think men should be elevated, but because equality cannot be achieve by demonizing other groups. Taking into consideration that women are the sisters, mothers, daughters, wives of men and they do not see what the feminist spews, anything those cat lovers say against men makes women notice the inequality in such venomous attacks by those who live their lives with hate.
We see many minority groups going after others, thinking or believing in some twisted way that this will make things better for them. As we seen with all this "all men bad" policy of what is left with the feminists and others, it has produced one hell of a backlash.
Old beliefs of attacking one against the other is nothing new, one could actually say it is an ongoing behavioural problem with humanity. History is full of one against the other, one just has to look at how many thousands if not millions died in wars about which "one" person would sit on a throne, with the claim that God put them there.
The thing is, one would expect human kind would have evolved past this by now...
But as the Ontario government has shown us lately, with their "all men bad and horn dogs" commercial, promoted by a university radical feminist professor, divisive nature is alive and well...surprisingly, the males in that government must think they are like this since they have accepted this b*llshit;, and that folks is what we call manginas, men who forfeit their responsibilities and respect to feminists in order to be patted on the back by them.
Which basically means, we have a long way to go to achieve mutual respect under these circumstances.
We argue and fight each other while the elitists take what's not theirs...
So, historically, what has changed???
