Do you ever wonder what some writers are smoking when they try to interpret what you say in a blog post? Today, Glenn received a copy of span style=”font-style:italic;”Mother Jones/span magazine at his office with a note attached that there was an article he might be interested in. The article, entitled, “And the Rand Played On” was about “Right-wingers heading for the hills” by “going Galt.” Unfortunately, it does not seem to be on the web, at least I couldn’t find it at their site. br /br /Anyway, the article begins by talking about me and states that I am a blogger for the “conservative PJ Media network” –newsflash to the author Amy Benfer: I am a blogger on blogspot, not at PJ Media– but why get bogged down with too many facts? Benfer goes on to say that I liked what Joe the Plumber had to say and this “semi-employed, blue-collar media darling” reminded me of John Galt, and this is how I came up with with the “Going Galt theme.” Huh? I don’t remember doing this–if you can deduce how Joe the Plumber reminded me of John Galt a href=”http://drhelen.blogspot.com/2008/10/going-john-galt.html”from my “Going Galt”/a post, let me know. br /br /Most of the article focuses on attempts to discount or insult anyone disagreeing with the author’s worldview. I am seen as “confused,” Right-wingers are “heading for the hills” and stars such as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt who dare read Ayn Rand’s books are “Celebrity fans of the cult of selfishness.” br /br /But I have to say that I like it that span style=”font-style:italic;”Mother Jones/span is so intimidated by the “Going Galt” theme that they have dedicated three pages at span style=”font-style:italic;”Mother Jones /spanto it and seem quite put out that Rand’s book a href=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0452011876?ie=UTF8tag=wwwviolentkicomlinkCode=as2camp=1789creative=9325creativeASIN=0452011876″span style=”font-style:italic;”Atlas Shrugged/span/aimg src=”http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=wwwviolentkicoml=as2o=1a=0452011876″ width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”" style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” / is flying off the shelves to the tune of 200,000 copies in four months.

A reader a href=”http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2009/06/22/2604559.htm?section=justin”emails an article/a from Australia about the rise of female domestic violence there: br /br /blockquoteNew South Wales Bureau of Crime Statistics figures show that over the past eight years, the number of women charged with domestic abuse has rocketed by 159 per cent.br /br /In 2007, 2,336 women fronted court on domestic violence charges, compared to around 800 in 1999.br /br /Preconceived ideas of gender roles have led a lot of people to believe it would be virtually impossible for a women to physically abuse a man.br /br /But co-director of Men’s Rights Agency Sue Price says it is exactly this stereotype that leads to battered men hiding in shame, fearful of being ridiculed, or even prosecuted.br /br /”I’ve had SAS soldiers in tears because the wife is a black belt karate expert and yet they know that if they even try to restrain her he might be charged with assault and domestic violence,” she said…..br /br /”We have so many reports of people having hot liquids poured over them in bed, glasses broken, men hit over the head from the back, attacked while they’re asleep, cut, burnt,” she said.br //blockquotebr /Ms. Price, in the article, also points out that more and more women are engaging in violence–even murder– because they can get away with it without consequences. This is an important point. The more we overlook female on male domestic violence, the more prevalent it becomes. The trouble is, no one cares and those of us who do are treated like pariahs or ignored. This must change–we must fight back against the stereotype of man perpetrator, woman victim–it is a matter of persistence and education. br /br /Recently, a reader emailed to tell me he was upset that doctors and staff were asking his pregnant wife in front of him if she was “in a safe relationship.” He asked me for help in finding research to give to these “do-gooders” to educate them about violence against men and children committed by women. If someone asked me at a doc’s office if I was in a “safe relationship,” I would have a few choice words for them. Or perhaps I would a href=”http://pn.psychiatryonline.org/cgi/content/full/42/15/31-a”just hand them this article /a or a href=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0143038680?ie=UTF8tag=wwwviolentkicomlinkCode=as2camp=1789creative=9325creativeASIN=0143038680″this book/aimg src=”http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=wwwviolentkicoml=as2o=1a=0143038680″ width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”" style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” / and save myself the aggravation.
There have been many — but the most resounding and the saddest is that the brave Iranian people are right to believe nobody in the outside world will help them. They’re on their own.
