It’s The Only Solution: Put Men In Prison For The Sake Of World Peace And Happiness

Filed under: General — Dana @ 10:48 am



[guest post by Dana]

So listen, guys, you already know by now that in some corners, the heterosexual male is largely on a par with mud, right? Sure, you may be essential to the continuation of the human race, but that’s just an unfortunate glitch in the system.

In an interview at RadFem, “outspoken journalist, tireless radical feminist activist, political lesbian,” and prison advocate, Julie Bindel, offers her thoughts on the ongoing vexing problem of heterosexual males:

Will heterosexuality survive women’s liberation?

It won’t, not unless men get their act together, have their power taken from them and behave themselves. I mean, I would actually put them all in some kind of camp where they can all drive around in quad bikes, or bicycles, or white vans. I would give them a choice of vehicles to drive around with, give them no porn, they wouldn’t be able to fight – we would have wardens, of course! Women who want to see their sons or male loved ones would be able to go and visit, or take them out like a library book, and then bring them back.

I hope heterosexuality doesn’t survive, actually. I would like to see a truce on heterosexuality. I would like an amnesty on heterosexuality until we have sorted ourselves out. Because under patriarchy it’s shit.

And I am sick of hearing from individual women that their men are all right. Those men have been shored up by the advantages of patriarchy and they are complacent, they are not stopping other men from being shit.

I would love to see a women’s liberation that results in women turning away from men and saying: “when you come back as human beings, then we might look again.”

Bindel also wants to see the entire construct of gender dismantled and hopes that at some point in the future, gender goes the way of the Flat Earth theory – laughable “that we actually believed it was a tangible thing.”

With that, Vanderbilt University is also concerned about the pervasive problem of being male and the importance of getting them while they’re young. As such, Healthy Masculinities Week 2015 will confront that disgusting reminder of all things male: masculinity. The forum will look at masculinity through various lenses of American society, including the gay and bisexual community and fraternities.

The first event as part of the “Healthy Masculinities Week” is called, “The Macho Paradox: Why some men hurt and how all men can help.” The title is a reference to a book by Jackson Katz, who is a self-proclaimed “anti-sexist activist” and the speaker for the event.

Other events as part of “Healthy Masculinities Week” include “Maintaining ‘Bro’ Status: Fraternity men discuss masculinity and mental health,” “Masc 4 Masc: Policing masculinity in the gay and bi communities,” “Masculinity XXL? The portrayal of manhood in Magic Mike,” and a screening and discussion of the film, “The Mask You Live In.”

The advertisement for “Healthy Masculinities Week,” which was emailed to members of the student body, includes a portrayal man with a thought bubble, thinking, “Don’t cry,” “Have sex,” “Major in business,” “Play sports,” and “Man up.” Allegedly, these are examples of unhealthy masculinity.

Men, face it, you are simply unacceptable the way you are. You have no understanding of how your heterosexual masculinity threatens world peace and happiness. It’s painfully clear that you need policing. After all, women will never be the happy creatures they deserve to be until you have been sufficiently beaten down, shamed and repressed, enough so that you ultimately end up denying the natural disposition and hard-wiring of your gender and finally resemble, well, women. And then, we can all be miserable together.

  1. Hello.

    Dana (86e864)

  2. I guess she is not the kind of person one would like to sit down and have a beer with, even most women would think that way.

    She is also the kind of person who probably had some “help”, very unfortunately, to have this attitude.

  3. She is also the kind of person who probably had some “help”, very unfortunately, to have this attitude.

    That would be my guess, too. Unfortunately, as much as I’d like to write this sort of person off, she and her ilk have wielded great power in reshaping the societal landscape, and subsequently influencing our laws. It is not the fluff of a nutjob (well, it is), but these are fighting words that have, and I guess will continue to parlay into disastrous real-life consequences.

  4. I want a billion dollars and a Ferrari Boxer with Kate Upton in the passenger seat. I have a feeling I will get my wish long, long before Julie gets hers.

  5. I say we put her and Vox Day on an island, filming their encounters with quadcopter drones.

  6. I think militant dikes should be shipped off to a desert island. Or Palestine. But I suppose that’s sexist.

  7. The lesbians have a slight problem. Sperm banks may not be totally trustworthy and those turkey basters they use to impregnate themselves all look alike.

    Now if she had a man do it, she would have known what she was getting.

    A white Ohio woman is suing a Downers Grove-based sperm bank, alleging that the company mistakenly gave her vials from an African-American donor, a fact that she said has made it difficult for her and her same-sex partner to raise their now 2-year-old daughter in an all-white community.

    This, of course, is bullshit as the problem is not “the all white community” but their own racist hearts.

  9. Well, if it comes to camps, the 3% are not going to get the 97% into camps. Doesn’t work that way.

    Hey, Julie Bindel, I totally, fully agree with your goals if you’re referring to liberal or leftwing men! The vision of males like Barack Obama, Al Gore and Joe Biden behind bars sounds pretty wonderful to me. Go for it!

    Mark (dc566c)

  11. Good luck with the wardens.

    Bob Ellison (fdf01d)

  12. Uh, yeah. Ok, hon, whatever you say.

    (Are the guys in the white suits here yet?)

  13. i’m a be there!

    stop by my booth and I’ll sign you a copy of The Healthy Masculinities Cookbook!

    a lot of you’ve said hey happy I want healthy masculinities but you’re not sure whether or not that means you can still have tasty masculine foozles like chicago dogs and ginger-garlic tofu served with a side of a sumptuous pesto salad

    well you can! you just have to follow the recipes!

    i’m a show you at the booth how to make a delightful (and delightfully vegan) strawberry spirutein shake with just a hint of peabnut bubber that’s not only healthy and masculine but also has this really fun pink color to it what really sets off those oversized tumblers you hardly ever get to use

    see you next week hey it’s Vanderbilt you think Anderson Cooper’s gonna be there?

    I just thought of that!

  14. She may not be aware, but women have also been appropriated as womb banks (e.g. normalize transgender relationships, sexual revolution dysfunction), and as fodder in combat roles, as well as in the abortion industry’s war on humanity.

  15. Great satire, bitch.

  16. ISIS has similar ideas about women.

    Michael Ejercito (d74b61)

  17. I feel like Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men. “In a way that you don’t talk about at parties, you NEED me (as a man), you WANT me (as a man). (As a man) I do the kind of things you cannot or will not do that allow you to do all the mouthing off you want to.”

    For most of my life it felt to me that gays were accepted as part of civility that you didn’t talk about. Nobody cared what anybody else did behind closed doors, and nobody wanted to know. I think that the legal arguments made when the initial pushes for gay marriage were made struck a note of fairness with the 97% of straight America, and very few had any problems with the concept of civil partners to address those. But gays have radicalized themselves so that anything which doesn’t celebrate with them must be marginalized.

    Sorry, as a procreating creature made in God’s image, I won’t be marginalized, not by you. We’ll both be judged when the time comes, and I will have some things to answer for. Do not pretend that you will not…

  18. So has this Julie broad given any thought to, when she has all the masculine men in the camp, just who is going to take that spider outside in the middle of the night? Or who is going to open that jar of pickles? Or get all that gooey hairy stuff out of the bathroom sink trap? Yeah!

    One of the up-sides of only having about another decade on the planet is knowing that I will not have to be bothered by people like her much longer. I have great worry for my grandsons, however.

  19. Femininity is a defined set of values and behaviors, just like masculinity is. Women wear dresses and heels. They have perfect hair and large breasts. Flawless makeup. She walks with a distinct gate and sits with legs in a sexy pose. Everyone admires a true female, just the way they admire a true male, who walks around with his shirt off and shows aggressive behavior. I learned all this from Caitlyn Jenner and Chaz Bono.

    Bingo. So glad to see a post here on this too. The more publicity the feminazis get (who knew that pejorative for far-left women would be so spot on) the better.

    no one of consequence (325a59)

  21. Seems to me idiots like her and the left in general have done a pretty good job of emasculating the masculine. In little more than a generation we went from a society of John Wayne and a horse riding cowboy hat wearing President like Reagan to Pajama Boy and a bike riding bike helmet wearing tool in Sketchers as president.

  22. This has to be parody or satire.

    JD (34f761)

  23. Nope, not a parody or satire. It’s real.

    Today’s feminism is really much worse than you thought.

    Tanny O'Haley (c674c7)

  24. JD, spend time reading Robert Stacy McCain and you’ll see it is not at all parody or satire. It is the fullness of evil in their hearts, after they have rejected good. And I agree with MD, an outside influence caused great psychological damage to these women, most likely with accompanied physical trauma.

  25. The only way to do this properly would be to treat human reproduction like as if you were trying to create a new breed of dogs and abort or kill 99% of the males

  26. While I think this woman is deranged, I also think this is a not unexpected reaction to some other trends I’ve watched in Liberal Land during my lifetime. The “Playboy Philosophy” got a lot of nodding respect from otherwise sensible people in the 1970’s, and looking back on it it doesn’t really come off much less sexist, exploitative, and crude than the “Hustler Philosophy” that followed it. The “Free Love” nonsense of the 1960’s was serious bad news for any woman who fell for it, and pop-music about it makes that clear if you listen (try the second part of “No Sugar Tonight” or “Love the One you’re With” *shudder*), which made it no different at all from any of the previous outbreaks of “free love”. Feminists who came of age in that poisonous atmosphere are bound to be warped. After all, the idiots pushing all that male chauvinist piggery are their supposed POLITICAL ALLIES.

  29. Ref Robert Stacy McCain (TheOtherMcCain.com) — he reads this femiqueer garbage so that the rest of us don’t have to risk our sanity wading through such dreck.

    My favorite quote so far: “Until I started studying radical feminism, I never thought of “normal” as an achievement.”

    These women are flat-out CRAZY. And not just “That poor sad confused girl!” miserable-sick crazy of ordinary loonies — oh, no! These women have truly invited demons to come live in their heads; they’ve perfected the practice of “intellectualizing abnormality” into a perverted, upside-down, fun-house-mirror, bizarro-world reflection of human relationships. And these beastly creatures THRIVE in academia, where they poison bright young minds semester after semester, receiving only praise for doing so.

    Another helpful quote from R S McCain: “Do not go near the crazy. Never talk to a feminist. Never look at a feminist {…} Feminism is a vortex of negativity so intense as to extinguish all positivity in its vicinity. ”

    Good advice.

  30. It’s interesting that mysogyny is nearly a capital crime, and misandry is hardly noteworthy.

    Steven Den Beste (99cfa1)

  31. Bindel is even more of a two-faced nitwit, because I bet if she were dealing with a group of very conservative, very-religious-oriented women, and another group of very liberal, very secular men, and she had to gravitate towards one side or the other, she’d suddenly lose her affinity for females and women’s rights.

    Apply a similar scenario to a group of very rightwing homosexuals and a group of very leftwing heterosexuals, and the same dynamic on Bindel’s part would come to the forefront.

    However, she may be such a loon that it’s also possible the power of ideological biases in such instances wouldn’t be quite so compelling to or even recognizable by her. But I doubt her head is that much caught in the clouds.

    Mark (dc566c)

  32. Not very enlightened there, Ms Bindel. I thought these feminists were supposed to be progressive. She merely wants a total enforced change in power with dictatorial improvements. I might have given here some credibility had she suggested a border across hemispheres. The gals get one and guys get the other. Like countries, you get a visa and passport for visits and trade. I might support that concept. :)

  35. Mike K @ #7 –

    Gee, I wonder why my suspicious mind says, “Or maybe the plaintiff wasn’t as 100% faithful as she told her lover she was, and had a fling with an African-American guy… and now the lawsuit is to try to cover up her cheating.”

    Because that seems far more likely than her “mixup at the sperm bank” story, that’s why.

    When Ms. Bindel begins to think in some simulacrum of a human being, I might look again.

  38. 34. Extremes meet. The Wikipedia article suggests she scoffs at transexuals and sex change surgery as much as anyone here…albeit, unfortunately, from a very opposite reason.
    But her jail all men idea, actually goes back to her teenage years.

    Julie Bindel is a radical feminist (not the fun kind) based in London, U.K. She came out as a lesbian at age 15 and has never looked back. Julie has been involved in the campaign to end violence toward women for more than 30 years and as a result is regularly called a man hater, a humourless dyke, and a sour-faced old boot. She works as a journalist and broadcaster and is currently researching a book that will prove that her brand of feminism is absolutely correct and that anyone who disagrees with her is wrong.

  42. — Doctor, I have a bone to pick you.
    — What is it Mr. Smith?
    — You told me, after my vasectomy, that my wife and I wouldn’t have any more children.
    — That’s right, Mr. Smith.
    — No, it was not right. All it did was change the color of the baby.

  44. Hey, I actually support her idea of fencing everyone who disagrees with her inside a fence, and leaving her and all who agree with her on the outside. And after you hear my explanation, you’ll agree too.

    An engineer, a physicist, and a mathematician are each given a coil of fencing and told to make the largest enclosure they can.

    The engineer spread the fence out into the largest circle he could achieve and declared it the largest enclosure possible.

    The physicist spread the fence in a straight line and said “Imagine this fence extending infinitely from each end. Half the world is on one side and half the world is on the other side.”

    The mathematician wrapped a small segment of the fence around himself and said “I declare myself to be on the outside.”

  46. I was curious about the comment(s) to the article. The archived version that’s linked shows 1 comment and is dated August 29.)

    So I went to the current version of the article, now updated (literally) to September 7. It not only shows no comments, but it also now has no comments SECTION at all.

  47. For science fiction fans, this kind of thing has appeared quite a bit. “Houston, Houston, Do You Read” by James Tiptree, Junior (Alice Sheldon) is a good example. When I first read it as a kiddo, I was very disturbed by the stereotyping. It’s very well written, as is her “The Screwfly Solution” (as Racoona Sheldon).

    Bet this woman has read both.

  49. Alice Sheldon is worth thinking about in this context.

    Here is dreaded Wikipedia on “Houston, Houston, Do You Read?”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Houston,_Houston,_Do_You_Read%3F

    And on “The Screwfly Solution.”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Screwfly_Solution

    Alice Sheldon’s life and death definitely apply here:

    I think she was in a lot of pain, but her writing (apart from the self-regarding polemics) is quite wonderful.
