“Gillette commercial controversy: Men should just get over it and adapt to #MeToo era”

Article here. Excerpt:

'Anyone freaking out about a depiction of men intervening to stop bad behavior of other males should ask themselves why they are so triggered. This is simply a fairly anodyne ad encouraging men to rise to the occasion in the #MeToo era. The mere suggestion that perhaps men haven’t always behaved perfectly shouldn’t cause such an uproar, and it likely wouldn’t if it didn’t strike so close to home.
...

This doesn’t make men inherently bad or evil. It makes them privileged. Part of being privileged is to be heedless to a problem that doesn’t affect you personally. It also means protecting systems that have served you well, even when they are harming other people. So, for example, white people who don’t say anything when unarmed black people are being brutalized and even killed by police officers are exhibiting privilege. Men who stay silent when they see harassment occurring because they don’t want to risk their position in a system that benefits them are exhibiting privilege.

Penn State student editors deem sports, playing outdoors ‘hyper-masculine’ activities

Article here. Excerpt:

'Gillette’s new commercial for its razors has polarized the right side of the pundit spectrum, with some arguing it doesn’t attack masculinity and others arguing it treats masculinity itself as “abusive.”

Political progressives, you might guess, are having an entirely different conversation.

“[T]he truth is, men can get a lot better,” wrote the majority-female Daily Collegian editorial board at Pennsylvania State University, using the Gillette ad as a starting point for their grievances with the opposite sex.

All the board’s women “reported a bare minimum of being patronized or demeaned in some capacity” by men, and “the persistence and frequency of these types of actions have done damage to women’s psyches, confidence and self-worth — and no man has any right to lessen those,” according to the editorial.

It goes back to the upbringing many men have received, “in houses that adhered to the rigid societal norms of playing sports and enjoying the outdoors, being hyper-masculine.”'

Portlandia: New city councillor says ’self-centered’ white men allowed to disrupt city council meeting

Article here. Excerpt:

'Jo Ann Hardesty, the first black woman to be elected to Portland's City Council, says white male privilege is to blame for disruptions during weekly council meetings.

"The reality is there are white men who think it's their job to come into Portland City Council and disrupt the meetings," Hardesty said Wednesday.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler on Wednesday called Hardesty's assertion "factually correct."

Hardesty sent a letter to Portland media organizations late Tuesday night explaining her concerns. She said those men act "disruptive, disrespectful and self-centered," and those behaviors may discourage first-timers from visiting council and participating in local politics.

"We fail in our job when we don’t make access equal, accessible, and fair to all who seek a voice in our processes. We live in a state built on white supremacy and the legacies of that history linger on today," Hardesty wrote. "If this is simply about having footage for your YouTube channel or Facebook page, you should be aware that using your privilege in this way cannot continue."'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Firefighters have taken a break from putting out fires to instead create one of their own by raising an inflammatory sign defending masculinity.

Staff at Newtown Fire Station in inner west Sydney were forced to apologise after they updated their sign to read: 'House fires are toxic, our masculinity isn't'.

'The sign was for those concerned there is way too much toxic out there,' the fire station said in an apologetic Facebook post.

'To show there are groups that fight it … Every man needs to be in touch with their feminine side, every woman needs to be in touch with their masculine side.''

'Tulane University has reached an agreement with the federal government to stop discriminating against men by offering female-only scholarships and financial aid. The announcement marks a rare victory for men in this increasingly hostile post-#MeToo climate.

“By September 6, 2019, the University will ensure that it is not treating male students differently on the basis of sex by providing different amounts of financial assistance, limiting eligibility for financial assistance … or otherwise discriminating with respect to financial assistance," the agreement said.

Furthermore, Tulane has agreed to provide updated training to its financial aid officers to ensure "nondiscrimination in financial assistance."'

UK: Campaigners and MPs call for misogyny to be made a hate crime

Article here. Excerpt:

'A coalition of campaign groups and MPs have called on the Metropolitan police commissioner, Cressida Dick, to make misogyny a hate crime.

It comes after it was revealed that gender hate incidents were at least as common as any hate crime recorded by police. There were 67,000 such incidents last year, with 57,000 of them targeted at women, according to figures from the Crime Survey of England and Wales. People aged between 16 and 44 were most commonly targeted.

Gender was the motivation for more than half of the hate crimes women reported experiencing last year. Age, which is also not recorded by most police forces, was the second most common with 41,000 incidents, followed by race with 16,000.
...
Sam Smethers, the Fawcett Society’s chief executive, said the letter’s signatories recognised the resource pressure police were under but the rising tide of hatred against women had to be taken seriously.'

The answer to the attack on men is women who stand against feminists

Posted in MensActivism.org

Article here. Excerpt:

'The feminist mission to destroy the so-called patriarchy and to create a matriarchy instead has officially hit its peak.
...
But the majority will not. Indeed, the irony of feminist dogma is that far from being oppressors of women, most men are supporters of women. Men want to please women, not rule over them. So if women and society insist that men shed their masculine ways, well then that is what they will do. Millennials are already doing it.

No, the only possible answer to this madness is for women to fight back against the feminist elite.

“It seems to me it isn’t men who have to stand up and say ‘enough of this,’” Peterson says, “even though that is what they should do. It seems to me it’s sanewomen who have to stand up against their crazy sisters and say ‘Look, enough of that. Enough of that man-hating, enough pathology, enough bringing disgrace on us as a gender.’”'

Green Berets Targeted After Anonymous Email Exposed Lowered Standards

Article here. Excerpt:

'The anonymous email, signed, “A concerned Green Beret,” accused the leaders of the school of “moral cowardice” for lowering the standards, and weakening instructors’ ability to discipline students as they look to get further through the pipeline.

“[The school] has devolved into a cesspool of toxic, exploitive, biased and self-serving senior officers who are bolstered by submissive, sycophantic, and just-as-culpable enlisted leaders,” the email said. “They have doggedly succeeded in two things; furthering their careers, and ensuring that Special Forces [are] more prolific but dangerously less capable than ever before.”
...
"Although Micah and I had nothing to do with it, it spoke true to what’s happening in the regiment. This guy Sonntag, who’s basically the one who’s trying to screw us over — he’s trying to make his career about putting a female through the course,” Squires said. He added that he did not oppose women in Special Forces, but opposed lowering the standards.

“Not only doing that, he’s changed it to where the guys who are coming through the Q course are not even the same quality of guys we had back in the day. Guys who should have been kicked out for several different things … As instructors, they took our power away.”'

Real Men of the World Launch Anti-Soyboy #BoycottGillette ‘Movement’

'It’s Monday, January 14, 2019, and we still can’t have nice things.

Gillette ran an ad you have seen today that is very similar to The Talk in that it doesn’t do much in the way of directly advertising the P&G products in question but does make some general, non-partisan commentary on a larger issue or two affecting our society.
...
In what may be the most predictable backlash to the backlash we have ever seen, someone on the mighty internet has proclaimed from on high that this campaign is offensive because it tells boys and men that they can no longer be (regular, normal?) boys and men.

The ad above is, in our opinions, pretty clearly saying that the following things are bad: bullying, fighting, being an open misogynist, and making your female co-workers feel like shit while ensuring that they don’t get full credit for the work they do.

Apparently not everyone agrees that these are bad things. Or at least they don’t think Gillette should be reminding us that they are.'
