FEMINISM-Encompasses a mantra of absolute freedom of choice for women, i.e. the ability to behave in any chosen manner, freed from expectations and responsibilities; embraces immorality and promiscuity while refusing to recognize absolutes concerning right and wrong, thus promoting convenient and flexible morality; maligns marriage, parenthood and all forms of social expectations and accountability; encourages shallow, narcissistic behavior; forwards an agenda of socialism, encouraging big government and dependency upon the state; promotes the interests of women at the expense of men, encouraging the intentional denigration of men, masculinity and fatherhood.
This is what I fight against.
When I started blogging, I'd never heard of the MRM or MRA's. I'd never read an anti-feminist blog or been on a men's rights forum. I started blogging because I saw something I found destructive and reprehensible and decided I needed to do SOMETHING, regardless how small, about it.
This is how I deal with that which I find abhorrent. When I realized how many animals were neglected, abused and abandoned, I joined animal rescue and started fostering, rehabilitating and re-homing dogs. When I recognized the abuse of children, I started working with children. When I realized the neglect of U.S. veterans, I started donating to our local veterans and going to visit those that are left old and forgotten in care facilities. When I realized the amount of homeless and hungry, I joined local groups to help feed, shelter and clothe the homeless.
The same thing goes for the rights of men, fathers and the state of womanhood. I am horrified by what has been done to fathers. I am saddened by what women have allowed themselves to become. I am angry at what has been done to the family and to the bonds between husband and wife; parent and child.
Still...despite the ease with which I could distance myself from that which I find deplorable, I don't. I don't, because I believe that once a wrong has been recognized, a person should be honor bound to do what they can to fight against that wrong.
I would issue a challenge to everyone who recognizes wrongs....especially to those women who recognize them but opt to remain still and silent because they, like I, are relatively sheltered from the evils in their nice, safe, little worlds. Stand for something. Stand for right and stand against wrong. I know it is a familiar mantra here on my blog, but it is one that cannot be repeated enough.
My children questioned me once about what they felt was excessive and unnecessary repetition at church. I believe their exact complaint was that they "repeat the same stuff over and over again". My response to them was, "So are you doing everything right, yet?"
I will continue to repeat my call, "over and over again" for people to stand up for what is right as long as so many voices remain silent. Feminism, the hate movement, is led by the loud and vicious minority...one whose voices could be countered and drowned out if more people would simply stand up and speak out. Speak out for little boys who are being ignored in order to champion their female counterparts, speak out for the young men who are taught that they are dangerous and violent; something that women and children need to be protected from....something to be feared. Speak out for the fathers who have been labeled "unnecessary"; for scores of men who suffer in silence in a society that screams, "WE DON'T CARE ABOUT YOU" in it's every effort, action and piece of legislation. Speak out for the number of men who will quietly end their lives, not even leaving a note because they assume that nobody really cares.
I will end this post by linking to The False Rape Society, simply because there are few better examples of the evils that need combating then the Hofstra false rape case. This is what I am fighting for....the lives of men.
