SPLC settles suit for over $3 million over false labeling

Article here. Significant to the MRM because the SPLC has listed several MRM-related groups or web sites (incl. MANN) as "hate groups". Excerpt:

'No fewer than 60 organizations branded "hate groups" or otherwise attacked by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) are considering legal action against the left-wing smear factory, a Christian legal nonprofit leader confirmed to PJ Media on Tuesday. He suggested that the $3 million settlement and apology the SPLC gave to Maajid Nawaz and his Quilliam Foundation on Monday would encourage further legal action.

"We haven't filed anything against the SPLC, but I think a number of organizations have been considering filing lawsuits against the SPLC, because they have been doing to a lot of organizations exactly what they did to Maajid Nawaz that's part of the settlement," Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, told PJ Media on Tuesday.

Liberty Counsel filed a lawsuit against the charity navigation organization GuideStar for defamation, after GuideStar adopted the SPLC's "hate group" list. That lawsuit is ongoing.
...
Importantly, "the allegations that were at issue here were very similar to the allegations against the other groups," the Liberty Counsel chairman explained. "The SPLC promotes false propaganda, demonizes and labels groups they disagree with, and that labeling has economic as well as physical consequences."

The SPLC started as a group to oppose racist terrorism, and its first legal action targeted the Ku Klux Klan. In recent decades, the organization has begun marking mainstream organizations as "hate groups" on par with the KKK. Last year, 47 nonprofit leaders denounced the SPLC's "hate list" in an open letter to the media. The SPLC has admitted that its "hate group" list is based on "opinion."'

‘Hate has no place here’: University responds to prof’s call to hate men

Article here. Excerpt:

'Northeastern University recently defended a professor while simultaneously distancing itself from her advocacy of hatred after the professor announced her misandry in a national newspaper.
...
It is unclear if Waters discriminates against male students who enroll in her classes. Numerous Northeastern faculty members and officials, including Title IX coordinator Mark Jannoni and the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies department did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

Reached via email, campus spokeswoman Shannon Nargi emailed The College Fix a statement that simultaneously seemed to denounce Waters while defending her call for hatred as a “controversial idea.”

“Northeastern University steadfastly supports a safe and inclusive learning and working environment in which hate has no place,” the statement reads. “The university has more than 1,000 faculty members whose viewpoints span the entire political spectrum. Consistent with our unwavering commitment to academic freedom, the opinions of an individual professor do not reflect the views of the university or its leadership.”

“Northeastern is committed to fostering an environment in which controversial ideas can be discussed, debated and challenged,” the release continued.'

Progressive activists ruined Father’s Day

Article here. Excerpt:

'Sorry dads, but if you weren’t willing to take on Progressive immigration policies or address your so-called toxic masculinity, you weren’t allowed to enjoy Father’s Day. Actually, if you follow the advice of many of the Left’s most extreme voices, you should have spent yesterday apologizing to all of mankind. Strike than: humankind (no more gendering words!).
...
Second: toxic masculinity!

That’s the new phrase Progressive feminists like to throw out there, an attempt to blame men (straight, white men, in particular) for every societal or even personal woe. And boy were these activists triggered. Father’s Day? You mean for men!? Haven’t the straight, white patriarchy benefitted enough!?!? We can’t celebrate them!

So rather than take a moment to celebrate the fathers and father figures in our life, we had to get angry and political. NBC News declared, in what I promise isn’t a satirical piece:

This weekend is Father’s Day, a holiday typically celebrated with displays of testosterone and gendered clichés. It’s also as good a time as any to acknowledge that there is indeed a crisis of masculinity. But it isn’t caused by feminism and changing gender norms. Rather, men experience violence and oppression because norms are not changing. And it is, in general, powerful men who enforce these unhelpful and sometimes dangerous masculine expectations, not tyrannous feminist women.
...
Unfortunately for the dads out there, these thirsty Progressive activists needed attention and you were the victims. Because Progressive activists have to ruin everything.'

Patriarchy or no, it’s good to have dad around on Father’s Day

Article here. Excerpt:

'The radical feminist assault on men is certainly no gift to our children. To be sure, single moms can achieve great things, and grandparents, as was the case for President Obama, can raise an outstanding human being. But both girls and boys clearly benefit from the presence of two parents, which usually means a mom and dad. Of course, we should also favor the adoption of children into gay couples or by a single parent as vastly preferable to an abusive home or none at all.

But overall children raised in intact families generally do much better than those raised by one parent. This is particularly true for poor children, and racial minorities, where the lack of two parents, usually dads, is directly tied to declining economic mobility; over two-thirds of black children are raised single-parent, and are usually fatherless. No amount of fashionable sociological gibberish can replace the simple truth that kids raised with both parents do better in school, in society and life.
...
The role of men is different but not inferior. Active paternal involvement can contribute greatly to a child’s cognitive development, notes a recent British study. Fathers, in most case, are also far more likely still to serve as the primary family breadwinners with full-time jobs, particularly when children are small. For their part, two-thirds of mothers, notes Pew, would prefer to work part-time or not at all.'

Israel: ‘You’ve declared war on the male gender!’

Article here. Excerpt:

'Family Movement Chairman Gil Ronen was expelled today from a Committee for the Advancement of the Status of Women hearing chaired by MK Aida Touma Sliman (Joint Arab List), after MK Merav Ben-Ari (Kulanu) interrupted Ronen, shouting "every week a woman is murdered here."

Sliman deprived Ronen of the floor, and when he replied that the committee had "declared war on the male gender," she ordered the Knesset Guard to expel him.

The meeting was intended to discuss data presented to MK Nachman Shai (Zionist Union) showing about 70% of cases against men accused of domestic violence close without trial.

Police and prosecution representatives explained the reasons for closing or not closing a case are professional and based on preponderance of evidence, witnesses, etc. The Committee Chair did not accept the statements and claimed a decline in the domestic violence prosecution rate, warning that if the trend continues, women might be afraid to complain.

Ronen was recognized and said that he accepts the domestic violence issue's importance and agrees that physical injury is usually more severe when a man raises a hand on a woman than in opposite cases. However, he noted, studies presented in Knesset by senior researchers show that women are no less violent than men in conjugal relationships, including severe violence and attempted murder.

Ronen also mentioned the Kohelet Forum study from 2016 revealing that among women's complaints against men there are "dozens of percent false complaints".

Ronen said the Committee and authorities had slid into demonization of the male gender and that the Committee should not apply political pressure on researchers committed to doing their work professionally.'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Stony Brook University in Long Island, New York, will soon become the first college in the nation to offer a master’s degree in the emerging field of “Masculinities.”

The Master’s Program in Masculinities will be a 30-credit online program offered through the school’s Center for the Study of Men and Masculinities, which aims to “disseminate research that redefines gender relations to foster greater social justice.”

The center counts feminist icons such as Gloria Steinem, Eve Ensler, and Jane Fonda among its Board of Directors, and it is led by Michael Kimmel, a feminist academic who most recently wrote a book on “angry white men” suffering from “aggrieved entitlement.”
...
If Kimmel’s proposal is approved, it will become the first master’s degree in “Masculinities” ever to be offered.'

Karen DeCrow: We should cease thinking about men as the enemy of children and women

Article here. Excerpt:

'Every day should be Father's Day.

We've been hearing about the barbecue tools which dad would like to receive. Or, gardening equipment.

What dad should get this year is new attention to fathers. The men have been getting a bad deal.
...
For decades I have been urging equality between fathers and mothers. Although there has been progress in this direction, fathers still have a difficult time being recognized as equal parents.

Father's Day each year makes me grateful for what my father did for me. This has little to do with our relationship, and much to do with what he taught me.
...
Most of us believe that women can do what men do. The challenge is to convince employers, legislators, mothers, that men can do what women do.

So last week we celebrated Father's Day and this week I reflect on it with this message: Every day should be Father's Day.'

Humor: ‘Father’s Day Updated To ‘Toxic Masculinity Awareness Day’’

Article here. Excerpt:

'WASHINGTON, D.C.—In a special session called to order Friday, Congress voted unanimously to do a complete overhaul of Father’s Day, renaming the holiday “Toxic Masculinity Awareness Day” and redefining the day’s meaning to encourage citizens to heap shame and disgust on all fathers, current or potential.

Americans across the country excitedly prepared to celebrate the updated holiday designed to shame fathers and all things masculine as the weekend approached.

“It was just time,” said House Speaker Paul Ryan, citing the high numbers of depression and anxiety among men as “a good sign things are progressing in the right direction, but we still have a lot of work to do before all men, everywhere do the right thing and hate themselves with the appropriate level of vehemence.” The new initiative seeks to have all men wailing in the streets in sackcloth and ashes, flagellating and weeping with shame and regret for their harmful, problematic masculinity.'

Lydia Forson tweets her disregard for fathers day celebration

Article here. Excerpt:

'African Movie Academy Award winning Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson has found herself facing twitter backlash after she posted a controversial tweet to her page on Fathers Day.

In a tweet which has since been deleted, the “Keteke” actress said “I don’t see Mother’s begging and reminding everyone when it’s Mother’s day. We celebrate our mothers because we want to,not because they try to guilt us into it. So focus on being GOOD fathers and you don’t have to beg to be celebrated on Father’s day. #HappyFathersDay”

The post which was sent at 4:40am on a day which is supposed to be special for fathers who have been there for their families understandably did not go down well with people on the internet who bombarded her page with furious replies which then prompted the actress to make her account private.

Lydia Forson who is a self-acclaimed feminist and women advocate has a history with controversial posts mostly about men and other happenings in the country and this is just a case of deja-vu.

She deleted the post after the backlash but we have the screenshots.'

Abolish Father’s Day? Is Misandry (man hating) Killing Our Men?

June 17th, 2018

Article Source
Posted in MensActivism.org

Article here. Excerpt:

'If you were to suggest abolishing Mother’s Day, there would be a hue and cry of ‘misogyny’. If you were to suggest renaming Mother’s Day to ‘Special Person’s Day’, thousands would march in the streets in protest.

But abolish Father’s Day? Hmmm, yes. Let’s have a conversation about that. What a jolly good idea. (I jest of course.)

This morning Good Morning Britain hosted a segment seriously discussing the abolishment of Father’s Day. But it’s not a new discussion. Two years ago, Judy Finnigan on Loose Women, thrilled the largely female studio audience by saying, ‘I think mothers deserve a day rather more than fathers.’ She got away with it. Had a man mumbled, ‘I think fathers deserve a day rather more than mothers,’ the nation would have screamed ‘Misogynist!’ and his career would have been summarily over.

But it’s perfectly fine, apparently, for the shoe to be on the other foot. What is it called? Is there a word for it? Actually, there is: misandry defined ‘dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against men (i.e., the male sex).’ But that’s okay, apparently.

It’s perfectly acceptable for women to hate on men without being labeled a ‘misandrist’.'
