The Elephant in the Room: A Review of Dr. Helen Smith’s Revelatory New Book, Men on Strike
By Barbara Oakley
Yes, that Barbara Oakley

...In Men on Strike, Dr. Smith takes us on a highly readable journey through her extensive studies of men’s issues. We learn, for example, of the impact of men’s increasing fears of being labeled a pedophile. In one unfortunate case, Englishman Clive Peachey saw two-year-old Abigail Rae wandering freely as he passed by in his truck. But he didn’t stop to help her for fear he would be accused of attempting to abduct her. The result? Abigail drowned.

...Smith’s critically important book lays clear the pernicious outcomes of a climate that so idealizes female victims that it is willing to pay virtually any price to ensure those victims know their place — and their power. As my own work on studying pathological altruism and altruism bias has shown, it is all too easy to draw well-meaning society members into such ultimately harmful social movements.

Dr. Smith also sensitively describes the inhospitable climate on college campuses towards men. As a college professor, I can vouch for the deeply troubling atmosphere — I’ve attended dozens of luncheons over the years celebrating women’s victimization with litanies of misleading and downright false “facts” and one-sided perspectives that resemble nothing so much as an old-fashioned revival meeting. (God forbid anyone ever stand upright to object to the misinformation being conveyed.) As Dr. Smith observes, women already approach 60% of the population of most campuses. If the percentages of men and women were reversed, we would have a national uproar.

#1  Using the Left's own agenda against them [can you say Alinsky?], given that Congress has just removed the prohibition on women in combat, it's time for a class action suit vs Secty of Defense and the Prez, to either terminate selective service registration for males or require all females to register. Further to make up for two hundred years of oppression of one gender required to face death and dismemberment [no, their bodies weren't theirs to own], any future 'draft' [selective activation] be adjusted by gender to make up for that history [just like color or race preferences]. I think the political fallout will result in a very significant fundamental change in culture.

Learn to stop worrying and shrug off Amnesty
Posted by: g(r)omgoru || 06/23/2013 16:13 || Comments || Link || E-Mail|| [357 views] Top|| File under:

#1  That antiqued little thing called the Constitution. You know, the one with the preamble that starts "We the People of the United States", not the people of the American Hemisphere or of North America.

The clear and unambiguous move to kill real in place border security shows its all about stuffing the ballot box.

After this, there is no America. It's everyone man, woman, and child for themselves. Find your tribe because nothing afterward means anything other than some bureaucrats capricious labeling of humans in the area.

#2  The people who support the amnesty are either starry eyed idealists or – the majority – crooks who think they can import a new electorate.

Or both.

#3  The moment that Obama would sign it in, the best revenge would be to establish the PRI as a legal political party in areas like Southern California. Have a motto like - why support a lot of privileged rich white people. The Donks would lose more votes in the end than they'd ever gain.

#1  Bill Maher will still pull the D lever in every election for the rest of his life.

Lots of noise, signifying nothing.

#3  I think this is a question that is offensive to Muslims.
