Neither MRA or feminist. Someone who claims to see things from both sides. What do you think?

Great post btw

The time for discussion is past.

Men: don't get married, don't co-habitate, protect yourself from sperm-snatchers, don't father any children unless you're sure you can pay the child support without going broke. Stay away from the public sector, college, big corporations, or any other place where diversity bigots can discriminate you at leisure. Set up your own business if you can. Keep informed. Spread the word. Don't argue.

Pass this on to as many men as you know.

Re: Claritus.

I posted a perfectly decent comment on claritus' blog only to have it deleted without explanation. Why am I not surprised that this blog is run by a woman?

Here's my reconstructed comment

"The time for discussion is past (Fidelbogen). Let's not fool ourselves. The women have been making moves on the chess-board, they've been strengthening their positions all the time. It's got nothing to do with equality. That's just a cover-story. They've been grabbing as much power as they can. We haven't been able to do much about it. Our position gets weaker by the day. The problem is that a large number of men are on THEIR side. Also, we are programmed to fight men, not women. We are not well equipped to deal with female tactics: playing the victim, making false claims, shaming and blaming, confusing the issues and fishing in troubled water. (...can't remember...) Now they're taking it out on our boys as well. It's infuriating."

I don't recommend this blog

I checked out the claritus blog. It is clearly much the same old feminist nonsense, only she pretends to adopt an even-handed approach between feminists and MRAs. Apparently, she is only a 19 year old so she probably doesn't know any better.

I too posted a comment on there. It is still up, but I wonder how long before it is deleted also.

Ondrya -- first of all thanks for your support and the energy you’re putting into this.

But there are problems with your recent suggestions.

Firstly, the sex urge is too strong for men under 40. It can be very hard to control for men 15 to 25! One idea might be to encourage men to move to other parts of the world (borrowing an idea of Heretic’s) to more man-loving cultures. But this is hardly ever easy.

Secondly, it will be difficult convincing those chivalrous heroes amongst us in the Anglosphere that fighting feminism is at all necessary. And, we don’t have a platform in the mass-media on which to make our voice heard. If the Internet ever takes over from television, we’re in with a good chance. Or, if someone well-known and respected, who is a good communicator, dares to make his view known, it could kick-start the process.

What is certain in my opinion is that once feminism is challenged in the mass-media, it will soon start to crumble. It has no factual basis, and no logical reasoning behind it. It won’t be difficult to expose its gaping fallacies and nastiness.

However, feminists have closed every door to make sure they never get challenged, and they will try to make damned sure these doors remain closed.

The feminist breakdown will happen, but the longest wait will be for the start.

brusselsLout: "the sex urge is too strong for men under 40. It can be very hard to control for men 15 to 25!"

Well, I'm not saying they shouldn't have sex. Just not get owned by the state for having it. :-)

A lot of men only find out about their liabilities when it's too late. We need to get to them before they make life changing decisions.

And you're right: I usually get laughed at when I warn them. They're completely brainwashed.

It is happening. Women have been rejecting all the objectionable parts in droves for years now. They appear not to be so chivalrous towards other women. Good for them.

There may be a way. After all, there's a will amongst us. But I for one have failed to reach first base with most men that I either know personally or with whom I take part in talkboard discussions with.

Brainwashed is right. But this is where the difficulty starts!

I am not one to give up, however, I am willing to carry on in the same ineffective way until a better way turns up!

This report from a British newspaper (the Guardian) came out today. The British government are STILL seeking to "improve" conviction rates for rape, despite warnings against doing so from judges. And most men I speak to are in support of such ludicrous measures.
