Forum Post: Let me throw this question out there

It has been said by some, that the women's rights movement has led to the wimpification of men in this country. While women have an equal right to every opportunity that men have, what makes men what they are is being pushed aside; things such as their desire to defend and protect those who are helpless and providing for their family. This is a very delicate issue, and I imagine I will get slammed, but how many mass murders or those who go on killing sprees would not exist if the positive aspects of manhood were recognized, not vilified?

Relax,dude, we're only coming for your guns. Believe me, we're not touching your penis.

Have you noticed when gun kooks defend guns they love to get all technical about calibers and ranges and magnums. They put you down for not knowing the diff between an Uzi and a Shnoozi. Why do they do this? Because they themselves haven't figured out the even more basic distinction between a gun and a penis.

And since a clueless ahole like this Highlander guy won't understand me, I might as well go ahead and really confuse the poor schmuck.

On women and men: That's so yesterday. We've moved on. Gender has gotten more complex. There are still some friendly folks in Occupy who remember the days of he and she. They might be able to reflect on your historical point.

You come for our guns and we'll come for your lives; this holier than thou, superior to all others attitude is really fucking hysterical.

The American People must join together and demand to be disarmed-that is the ONLY way The Masters of the Universe can attain gunless sheeple.Whether they are somehow engineering these terrifying attacks by Troubled Loners or merely exploiting the situation is immaterial! There is no way Americans will unite in agreement on any kind of legislation that would actually infringe gun rights.The Gun Grab is NEVER going to happen without a declaration of Martial Law-and you don't need me to tell you what the immediate result of THAT would be.I don't really want to take sides except I KNOW how BAD The Masters of the Universe want Americans disarmed-the reason why is a Bad Thing.

"One "trait" that has not yet attracted as much attention is the gender difference: nearly all school shootings are perpetrated by young males, and in some instances the violence has clearly been gender-specific. Bob Herbert addressed this in an October 2006 New York Times editorial. Only two female school shooting incidents have been documented."

"Another reported similarity is that most of the perpetrators had been taking antidepressant drugs, which have a documented history of producing violence and aggression as a side effect."

There is no doubt-at least in my mind,that men are being mutilated by No Pay,Low Pay,long term unemployment,destruction of Unions,dead end jobs,lack of opportunity in education,business,and employment.People can be persuaded to help women and children and even though you can't ask for help without being called a loser,women are more able to ignore stupid epithets like that and just keep on going.Men are being denied the opportunity to succeed or fail.Now,if you don't have rich parents,you fail automatically.

Break up the family unit . . . part of the plan . . . If you do a little bit of research you will find that Rockefeller funded the Womens Liberation Movement. Read Anthony Sutton - his books were published by Stanford University Press.

What's your socioeconomic status? Why is this an issue? What is your ethnicity?

No, really. There is a point to this.

See, this is dealing with a mental illness and trying to tie this in with manhood is dangerous territory. It does not deal with mentally ill and exacerbates conflict--unnecessarily. It does seem to sell well, though.

I have no proof. I am implying nothing by that comment. Simply throwing a notion to be explored, among a miriad of others.
Let's face it. If it wasn't a semiautomatic, it could have been a knife, club, wrench, or human teeth (jeffrey dahlmer). feinstein and her friends are looking at a bill to ban semiautomatics. It is simply taking away a means, not the root problem, whatever that is.

Highlander, the women's lib movement that occurred in the 60's was started by and centered around white middle class women. They were addressing white middle class female issues.

The reality is that wimpification has not one thing to do with women. Not one. If you buy into this shit then you are accepting that the whole point is to push this wimpification down to taking away rights and forcing marriage............in order to remove social programs.
