The Southern Poverty Law Center, founded in 1971 as a civil rights law firm, has released its latest “Intelligence Report” on hate groups in the United States. This year’s report contains a new category: the Manosphere.
Here is what the Southern Poverty Law Center has to say about that category:
The so-called “manosphere” is peopled with hundreds of websites, blogs and forums dedicated to savaging feminists in particular and women, very typically American women, in general. Although some of the sites make an attempt at civility and try to back their arguments with facts, they are almost all thick with misogynistic attacks that can be astounding for the guttural hatred they express. What follows are brief descriptions of a dozen of these sites. Another resource is the Man Boobz website (manboobz.com), a humorous pro-feminist blog (its tagline is “Misogyny: I Mock It”) that keeps a close eye on these and many other woman-hating sites.
Yep, anytime men don’t sing the praises of women and have legitimate concerns, or they are just playing the same sexual games that women have played for years, they are now misogynists and a “hate group.”
Well, two can play at this game. Here is my own list of man-hating sites from the “womanosphere” that we all need to keep a watch on:
American Association of University Women
This hate group is doing more to damage boy’s education than any pick-up artist’s act ever did to a woman’s ego. This misandric website says it’s mission is to break through educational and economic barriers so that all women have a fair chance. Yet, they do so at the expense of boys. According to Christina Hoff Sommers, the author of the The WAR AGAINST BOYS, the AAUW has not merely ignored boys’ problems, it had dismissed them, coaching teachers at its 1997 Leadership Conference on how to deflect questions about boys’ deficits and comparing those who questioned bias against girls to “Holocaust revisionists” in its newsletter. Thanks to man-haters like the AAUW, boys are lagging behind girls in school and are less likely to attend college, possibly contributing to stagnant (or possibly declining) wages for men. Let’s all keep on eye on this one.
This website is not only full of women who dislike men, they dislike women too. Here, they call blogger Susannah Breslin a “Certifiable Asshole” because they disagree with something she wrote. And some of them idolize an extremist who dreams of gendercide. What a lovely group. Sorry SPLC, but no pick-up artist can compete with these gals.
This woman is so cruel to men that when Thomas Ball set himself on fire after feeling abused by family court, she described the dead man as a typical ”abuser” whose only desire was to “make [his] ex-wife’s life a living hell . . . ” No concern for the man who died.
If you know of more of these misandric sites or individuals, comment below so we can add them to our list of hate groups to watch.
