Men who hate women

Oh please.

Every single one of you knows how I feel about feminism. But the opposite position can be taken too far. Consider this remark I just read:

"Feminism is witchcraft. It is of satan. Look at the rebellion of women around the world. Women are a threat to society, to families, to Men and to children. Their rebellion is growing. As they gain education, they turn even more evil and rebellious. They are usurping the roles of Men in society and the Church. One can understand why the Muslims keep their women under control. Look how many children have been murdered by their mothers. In the hundreds of millions. Look at what has happened to America since women started to vote and holding office. The Eve factor ie deluded rebellion against God, is still alive in her female descendants. This is why Men must dominate women. For their own good and that of the world. The coming of the antichrist must be near. Women will receive him with great gusto. That tells you who is really behind the feminist movement."

Criminey, I'd hate to live next door to this guy... much less be married to him. This smacks of plain old-fashioned misogyny.

  1. Well now let's break it down a bit.

    Feminism is witchcraft /Of Satan - Many parts of it, especially the new versions of Feminism are directly tied or related to straight up sins. So he kinda has a point and I have known many a Feminist that embraces Paganism.

    Women are a threat to society, families, Men and Children - No not Women but Feminist (Both Male and Female ones) have proven that they are indeed a threat, especially to unborn children.

    Their Rebellion is growing - I am not so sure about that. In fact I think it hit it's peak a few years back and many intelligent Women have seen it for what it is.

    As they gain education they turn even more evil and rebellious - While true to a point the feminist have mostly long ago became the Female equivalent to the elite. All the Elite, from bankers to politicians are about the same in evilness.

    One will understand the Muslims....control? No I will never understand why Muslims do 99% of what they do. I hardly call what they do control, it goes well beyond that.

    Mothers murdering their children - I think this is a tit for tat thing. Many times a Mother will murder their children and we find the men in their lives have something to do with it too. What he should have said was Children are safer in a two parent household and statistically in more danger in a family with a non-biological father.

    Look at what happened to America since Women started to vote and hold office - This is based on a myth but does contain some fact but it isn't all on Women and Feminism. Women were holding office and voting in some parts of the USA by the early 1800's. One Female judge in Oregon in the 1800's was notorious for throwing crying Women out on the street in divorce cases if they tried to gain sympathy that way. What he should have said was this country was founded as a Republic and Voting should have been left the exclusive place of Families and those of property regardless of Sex. You can not turn a Republic into a Democracy and expect it to work.

    The Eve Factor - Well I believe the propensity for sin is in both sexes pretty equally. Of course the sexes have different biases in that area I am sure which causes a certain amount of narrow mindedness.

    Men dominating Women? Please. Who do you think dominated whom? What Women call dominating by Men was actually domination by the older Women over the younger ones. The Men were usually the ones hoping the young Women would manage to slip those chains and escape. Men traditionally tried to facilitate the lessening of the domination. I know I sure knew enough to turn the charm on the Old Matriarch before I even thought about making the Patriarch amiable. The Men were hard to circumnavigate but they were nothing compared to a Matriarch.

    Many people of Both sexes these days will receive the blessings of Babylon with glee. Call out feminist but never forget there are indeed Women out there who are not feminist.

    I think this guy is simply over sensitive to the ills of Feminism and doesn't understand it well enough yet to put his thoughts into the proper words. I was once like him but when I discovered there were Women like you Patrice it tempered my anger quite a bit.

    1. Well said Pioneer Preppy and my thoughts exactly.

    2. Back in the day... the early 70's, I was suddenly widowed. Ergo, I desperately needed a job to support my children.

      I applied every place that had an ad. The one place that actually offered me a job, was a police department. I took it. I was not hired to be a matron or dispatcher. I was to be a patrol officer. It was also the beginning of the feminist movement.

      As you might guess, men were resentful and women were hostile because I would be working around their husbands. I was labeled a feminist, an intruder and just about every adjective known to man.

      I realized I was going to have to go above and beyond to prove myself in a man's world. With every miscreant wanting to challenge me, I decided to get additional training in hand to hand combat. I started in karate training. I eventually earned 2 black belts. That additional training gave me, not only an edge, but also saved my butt. So, as my career progressed, I advocated that women should have be required to take additional training. Talk about getting slammed. Of course, that word "feminist" cropped up again. I was beginning to get ticked. Not only was I not a feminist, I generally was pretty outspoken against them.

      Eight years into my career, more women had been hired as patrol officers. OMG, some thought they walked on water and they made it hard for the few of us that had been on the job for years. True feminists had invaded us working girls. The thing is, they wanted the position, but didn't want the extra work it takes for a female to be, not only a good cop, but one that won't get taken down in a fight or lose her gun to a perp.

      Face it, women do not have the upper body strength that men do. We DO have to go the extra miles. Real women will go the distance, feminists will advocate for lessening the regs, but still get the position. Therein lies the difference. The old "I get it because I am female" gig.

      I use to wonder what was worse; fighting the feminazis or fighting criminals. I concluded fighting the feminists was worse.

      So to the fool who thinks all women are feminists or somehow satanic, newsflash; some of us worked to support our family instead of sitting on welfare. Many of us didn't have a choice. Btw: My children all turned out very successful adults with solid careers. And, I didn't even use a 'broomstick' . :)

    3. We were all born in sin. ALL of us, male AND female. Women are no worse or better than men. Feminists these days are women who have, unfortunately, listened to liberal-progressive lies. They have allowed themselves to be manipulated and deceived, but so have many men! We all need to dump our pride and seek humility.

  2. Misogyny ... or just trolling.

  3. This person is just running his mouth. He has nothing of value to say. He does not know the Word of God.

  4. Yikes, what an @sshat. I am not fond of feminist (female or male) and will not suffer them as fools, but I know women are generally good and there are women and girls who do not ascribe to that wretched condition. I really think God needs to give him an attitude adjustment.

  5. Hundreds of millions of children being murdered by their mothers would have to be a reference to abortion. And that is a sadness beyond belief.

  6. *sigh*

    That brings back memories. These were the words of the anti-feminists (and for that matter, the majority of the Christians) of my youth. I'm very sad to see that they're still around (not that I ever believed otherwise). I want to believe that they're not all that common; sadly, what I actually believe is that they're about as common as radical feminists. They are, after all, opposite sides of the same coin.

    They drive reasonable people to embrace radical feminism as a "better alternative." They give credence to the things radical feminists say-- becoming, in effect, the grain of truth that makes a lie all the more pernicious. They drive people away from Christ; I have been there, done that, and burned the t-shirt. I can honestly say that I was extremely fortunate: I became a Pagan and met Jesus.

    I realize how strange that sounds, but if I had not first thrown off the influences of being brought up with this stuff, He could have knocked on the door all day while I sat on the other side screaming, "Get thee behind me, Satan!"

  7. Really nothing I can add that hasn't already been said other than...this guy needs to work side by side with me on our farm. I'll show him...I'm not sure what but I'll at least tire him out so he has less energy for rant like his.

  8. I totally agree with you. What he said was disgustingly stupid. I also agree with those who said he is a troll or just speaking to hear himself speak. However I cannot help but notice that his rhetoric is mild compared to the anti-male rhetoric of the more radical feminist. Hmmmmm! Where is the much more elevated criticism of the more radical feminists? Double standard?

  9. Well, I am a feminist and I would never ever speak of men in such a disrespectful, hateful, condemning tone. It just seems to be a law of nature that every movement (feminism included, of course), every ideology, every religion has its very own lunatic fringe. I'd place this person firmly there, together with a very small number of people. As far as my experience goes, most people from any walk of life or any belief system are decent people! I suppose we should focus on these instead of the "lunatic fringe".

  10. I am for equality. Not equality of result but equaity of opportunity. Perhaps that is what you mean. You have selected some of the fine goals of "feminism" and declared you are a feminist. But I suggest you look at it's history, the beliefs of those women who founded it and the beliefs of the women today who control it. I think that if you did and understood it all you could no longer declare yourself to be a feminist then you could advocate to return to slavery.

    1. Actually, there ARE not two or three women who "control" feminism, comparable to the way the Pope "controls" the Catholic church. There are many different shades of feminism, just as there are in every movement or party.
      And yes, I've done a bit of research on feminism (although not so much in the US than in my own countrey), and still call myself a feminist, in spite of the fact that there are other feminists whose views I think are slightly...insane.
      I am in favour of a capitalist economical system and yet disapprove of factory owners that use the freedoms this system gives them to exploit their workers or even create such unsafe workplaces that in case of an emergency the workers can't leave the factory. I suppose you are in favour of democracy, although its founders were slaveholders and kept the right to vote reserved for a relatively small group. I admire Jefferson for drafting the American Constitution, although he owned slaves, depriving them of the liberty he granted other Americans.
      You can support an idea even though its founders or other supporters do or say things that are less than ideal.

  11. I never witnessed significant feminist outrage over clitoredectomy, child marriage, honor killing, sharia-inspired rape laws, stoning, or acid attacks. Nothing. Zip. Crickets.

  12. I think he has his brain mixed up. The way I see it abortion is just another ploy for men to avoid their responsibility for a nights fling under the guise of protecting women's rights.. same holds for some women. How about the right to carry a child and not be pressured to commit murder in name of convenience.. that after all is what sex is primarily for.

  13. Hmmmm, I wonder if he considers his mother a "threat to society" since she gave birth to him...

  15. Although I believe this person is correct about who is behind the feminist movement, everything else he says is hogwash. Ephesians 5:22-33 tells us: "Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church... But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything." Okay... but then it says this: "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her; that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word... So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself." A wise man treats his wife like a queen, and a wise woman treats her husband like a king!

  16. Patrice, I know this comment might be offensive to some of your readership, so please feel free not to post. I wrote it, though, because I believe it's important.

    The comment about the "Eve factor" makes me think it's a hard core Calvinist who wrote this. :( People need to be aware of that craziness.

  17. It would be nice to see someone say what they mean by feminism. Or radical feminism There is a lot of reporting on what the results are but little information on they think a feminist is.

    My father was a very conservative man. When I told him I wanted to be a nurse he said have you thought about going to medical school. So I am an MD. He often quoted the phrase, when you educate a woman you educate a family. I'm thrilled to have had three daughters and they are all capable young women. One is a Columbia trained midwife, one has graduated from college with a business degree and starts a job in August, and one is a senior in high school.

    Does that make me a feminist? I do agree in equal but not super equal rights for women. We are after all at an advantage. We make better grades on average in school. Did God give women equal intelligence to have them dominated by a man. I'll let my daughters work out their own marital relationships. My MD husband is a very dominant personality. We have worked that out pretty well but it has always meant my career would take a back seat. But I made that choice in many ways and the fact that I had three children pretty much determined it as well.
