MGTOW Survey Results Part 3: Women

At last, the final part of the MGTOW Survey results are here! I apologize for how long it has taken, but now that I have a fully operational spreadsheet to enter all data into the December update should go much quicker. Thank you again to everyone who has taken time out of their day to answer my questions, leave feedback, comment, or even become a follower…or friend. You know who you are. ;)

Now, to business!

A Poem For MGTOWs

Feminist arguments are a Gordian knot.
Tis only for women ’cause men lay forgot.
“It helps you” they cry, ever long and low,
But more of men’s problems do they yet sow.

“Do not hit a woman, you’ll reap naught but trouble!”
But it’s hilarious when penis meets garbage disposal?
“Women have need of DV shelters, it’s true!”
And what of the men who are black and blue?

“Women attempt suicide too, you know!”
Yet more men commit it as the graves do show.
“Women and children must be kept off the street!”
Yes, but what of all the homeless men that you meet?

“Women are raped more, especially on dates!”
Only because ‘raped’ isn’t ‘made to penetrate’.
“Divorce is a right for all!” they chant.
Yes, but which sex applies for it at 70 percent?

Alimony abuse, false rape accusations,
Failed education, child support incarcerations.
So many more issues yet plague men today.
My friends, the answer is to go your own way!

Live life to it’s fullest, do what you will
Climb as you wish, and when you crest each hill.
Be happy, be joyful, to thine own self be true…
But most of all, be aware that you’re doing it for you.

I penned this earlier today after a conversation on another blog about some of the things feminism fails to address, but claim they do. Even for those who say that feminist ideology helps men, it can only do so indirectly. Which is fine…feminism is a Women’s Rights movement, after all. Feminists goals are gynocentric by necessity. However, I’m getting tired of hearing that men are directly aided by feminism when they are not. When was the last time feminists created a DV shelter for men and boys? Had a parade celebrating male sexuality? Stood on street corners speaking out against the mandatory registration of men into the Draft? Held impromptu lectures in Washington, DC about male genital mutilation? Heck, even put up a blog post showing support for male oral contraceptives or men who had been falsely accused of rape/sexual harassment?

I’m not saying nobody who identifies as a feminist has done these things. Perhaps they have (please post in the comments if you have an example!). But until such a time as feminism becomes a movement for true equality, not just women’s equality, I shall remain an egalitarian. Not because I hate women or want cis male attention. Not because I want to deny myself and other women equal opportunities in the public and private spheres. Not because I have “internalized the patriarchy” or am afraid of being called a feminist.

No, it is because I stand for men’s rights just as much as women’s rights. Until such a time as equality is actually on the horizon, I will support Men Going Their Own Way, whatever that might entail for them.

Calling All Married MGTOWs

Hi everyone. Hope the weekend is treating you all well. Today we are going to look at an email I received a few weeks ago, from a male reader I’ll call “M”. I told him I’d do his request post after I finished the two other MGTOW Results ones, but as I’ve not had the opportunity to complete them to my liking yet, I’m not going to force him to wait any longer.

New CDC report shows increase in sexual violence against males

Tarnished:

Sexual violence against anyone is a cause for concern. At least, it should be…

Originally posted on Toy Soldiers:

The CDC released a report on the rate of sexual and domestic violence in 2011. Tamen wrote an excellent breakdown of the new findings. I can do no better, and will not attempt to. I suggest reading his post. Tamen created a graphs showing the difference between the 2010 and 2011 findings. As he notes, the press release makes no mention of the increased rate of sexual violence against males. It focuses solely on female victimization.

Tamen also notes that the CDC does not appear to follow its own definition of rape, and the organization continued to exclude “being forced to penetrate” as rape. This is despite the increase in men reporting being forced to penetrate and reporting more female perpetrator.

I mentioned on Feminist Critiics that the CDC’s seeming disinterest in sharing information about male victimization may be a reaction to advocates for male survivors and men’s rights activists.

The Beauty of Male Genitals

I’ve noticed that this post was linked to on Reddit and is getting a lot of views, so I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thanks for visiting and formally welcome all new readers to my blog. I hope you enjoy yourselves, and feel free to ask for any clarifications or join in the numerous ongoing conversations in the comments!

Recent conversations on other blogs have tuned me into a new opinion that I never really considered before: That penises are ugly.

Reaching Out

Hi all. I’m going to be heading into work a few hours early tomorrow to (hopefully) finish up part 2 of the MGTOW Survey Results, but I just wanted to blog a bit about the importance of touch. I’ll have a much more in depth post on this topic next month, yet something happened today that I can’t get out of my mind. Well, two somethings, but they’re very related. Continue reading

Men + Women + Orgasms = Nobody Is Satisfied

I followed a link from another blogger and found a very interesting blog that seems to be about male-female relationships. After reading the linked-to post, I immediately started to write a comment about the issues I saw missing from it. Since it grew to a rather obnoxious length for a mere comment, I have decided to make it a post unto itself. I have put his words in bold, my own are in regular font for ease of reading.

Those that hit, shouldn’t be immune from being hit back…

Tarnished:

This is why I love Ms. Goldberg. It’s not the first time she has spoken the truth, and it likely won’t be the last.

“Don’t hit anybody!” she says…what a novel idea! No, men shouldn’t hit women. But then, women shouldn’t hit men either. Let’s all just get away from this automatic violence and recognize that problems are solved with words, not fists.

I have never hit, kicked, or slapped anyone…man or woman…in my 30 years of life thusfar, other than when goofing around. And you know what? When my guy friends “punch” me back, it’s what I was expecting would happen and I’m happy that I’m enough of one of the guys that they treat me the same.

Ms. Goldberg is correct: You cannot hit someone, whether playing around or attempting to harm, and not assume you’re going to be hit back.

Look at how those femanzi womyn think equality means being able to hit someone because they have a penis but they aren’t allowed to hit back….

Only one woman was rational here…
