Has anyone else noticed the irony that Derrick Jensen (another person I share many points of political agreement with but still do not agree with 100 percent of the time) is being accused of holding “violent” beliefs* … but his opponents are the only ones who are actually committing violence?
And what’s more, these opponents are not committing this violence against Jensen — they are committing it against women, who only happened to be actually associated with Jensen. (Because, like most political groups, DGR is not always in total agreement and not all members like or even know one another.)
* LOL, “violent beliefs”??
It’s a classic case of projection mixed with pro-active woman-hatred, if you ask me.

I posted last week asking people if they knew of some good resources for male victims of sexual assault. Here is the list people came up with:
reblog for signal boost
This is great! I know a lot of guys have trouble finding resources like these. I’ll always reblog
It’s weird how we don’t have male victims coming forward. Their own misogyny blackmails them into not confessing they’ve been fucked. On the whole, they’d rather keep their secret than speak out when the time is right. Women are abused in WAY higher numbers and come forward WAY more. Men need to start by TELLING EVERYONE WHO HURT THEM SO WE CAN START MAKING ARRESTS. Because no one cares about woman’s far worse abuse. MEN HAVE TO SAY IT FOR IT TO COUNT SO GET ON THE FUCKING HORN, thx.
According to this post by Karen Ingala Smith men are more likely to call the police and to press charges but less likely to drop them again. They also underestimate their violence and overestimate their victimization. (Resources at the link.)
“My mother fought cancer for almost a decade and died at 56. She held out long enough to meet the first of her grandchildren and to hold them in her arms. But my other children will never have the chance to know her and experience how loving and gracious she was. I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy.
Life comes with many challenges. The ones that should not scare us are the ones we can take on and take control of” - My Medical Choice by Angelina Jolie, New York Times (14 May, 2013)
Breaking News: In what has been described as a “horrifying” incident two women were attacked by a group of men who identified themselves as “transgender women” at the Portland State University “Law and Disorder Conference” which billed itself as a “provocative space for comparative critical dialogue between activists, revolutionaries, educators, artists, musicians, scholars, dancers, actors and writers”.
The women were attacked in a coordinated assault as they sat at a table which sold feminist books and literature. The men destroyed the books and marked up the table display with permanent markers. One of the women was also marked up by the men. Predominantly male conference onlookers by all reports allowed the attack to take place, watching in stunned silence. Two males affiliated with the same group as the feminists -Deep Green Resistance- were also in attendance and the “trans women” threw a projectile at the head of one of them.
According to reports, the transgender males or “trans women” took issue with the feminist content in the Deep Green Resistance materials. Specifically, a portion of the materials reflected the feminist position that social roles based on sex are undesirable and harmful to women.
The transgender males believe that social roles based on sex are natural and innate and that it is instead the unchanging nature of biological sex that is undesirable. They believe that women should not criticize social roles based on sex, in deference to the feelings of men like themselves who embrace such roles. The men reportedly stated that all feminist writing and voices should be silenced by males with force if necessary, and they then proceeded to do just that.
Conference organizer Brandon Speck posted a statement on Facebook today following yesterday’s attack. He claimed that women should not be able to disseminate materials that might offend those men who support sex-roles. He claimed that the women deserved to be attacked for offering materials that contained feminism. He stated that no feminists should be permitted to sell books that men might not like. He said that as a man he had no authority to dictate the behavior of other men who might choose to assault women who offend them.
Gee, I guessed they “deserved” it. Like so many women “deserve” it, am I right, guys? Brandon Speck’s pathetic blame-shifting post in which he said that there were safety concern for trans males (LMAO) has already been deleted, including the comment thread containing threats against feminist activists who do not agree with trans ideology.
One of the recurring difficulties I seem to have with many (straight) women is their inability to be honest about their relationships with men and the ensuing hypocrisy they inevitably exhibit as a result.
I am supposed to become incredibly upset about any real or perceived injustice against men while it is expected that I do not complain about threatening or dangerous male behaviour directed at women in general or me in specific. Instead, I am matter-of-factly lectured on ways to minimize the unavoidable damage dealt by violent men.
Protecting someone who you expect to abuse you is not “love” - it’s submissive behaviour to appease an angry master.
