Casting doubt on assumptions about sexual assault

Although there’s still a certain sexism blinding these researchers (substantial researcj indicates that the rate of female-on-male and female-on-female predation is much higher than most people realize), a new reported study finds that many of our assumptions about male sexual assaulters are wrong. Although I’d like to get ahold of the actual study, since popular reporting on research often puts words in their mouths; I somehow doubt the study actually looked at female sex predators at all–it’s a taboo subject still for some reason.

Domestic Violence Revelations 3

Join us TODAY (Saturday, 8 June 2013) at 4:00pm London time, 11am Eastern US time, for the next episode of Domestic Violence Revelations with Erin Pizzey. Episode 3 we will feature readings by American Phetote Mshairi, English legend ManWomanMyth, ideological bullying of men in Domestic Violence advocacy communities like Linkedin, men’s own tendency to view other men’s pain as unimportant, men’s tendency to accept lies about their fellow man without realizing what they’re saying about themselves, women’s role in all this, and Men Going Their Own Way (MGTOW). We also hope you will call in via Skype or other means to share your own personal views and experiences.

You can listen to the readings from this episode on these videos:

Please join us, again, at 4pm London Time, 11am Eastern US time, this Saturday (that’s already today for most of you Brits!) at Domestic Violence Revelations with Erin Pizzey episode #3. We hope you’ll call in and share your thoughts and experiences.

Understanding Circumcision

…and why it is not correct to say female genital cutting is automatically worse.

It would be nice if people would discuss this rationally, but they almost never do. It makes the discussion frustrating to say the least.

For the record, I am against all of the above, however, there are types I find less objectionable, which strikes me as how most sane people who bothered to look at it would feel.

Must See Ad for Anyone With A Son

The great problem with diagnosing kids (and it’s most rampantly done to boys) is not that there are no children anywhere with psychiatric disorders that need therapeautic intervention, the problem is that there are a many many more who have nothing at all wrong with them, they’re just boys being poorly served by an educational system that has been redesigned in a way that doesn’t work well for them, and boyness has come to be treated like a mental disorder.

*Update* I just discovered that this ad was put together by a Scientology front group. This does not mean the ad still is not awesome but I would have preferred if the CoS people were up front about these things and not hiding them, and I want to make it clear that I do not endorse Scientology’s extreme anti-pscyhiatry views. Criticizing things in modern pscyhiatric practice is fair game but this should not been seen as an endorsement of the view that the entire field of pscychiatry is evil and the source of most of the world’s mental illness. Sorry folks.

Fundraiser for Earl Silverman Center

We had a memorial on the radio on Saturday for Earl Silverman on A Voice for Men radio, and announced a fundraiser to attempt to build a center for male victims of domestic violence elsewhere in Canada, led by Kristina Hansen, the Canadian News Director for A Voice for Men. We talked about it near the end of the show, which you can listen to here:

(And if you want to hear my own brief remarks, they’re at right around 1 hour 46 minutes, although the entire show is worth listening to. Oh, and by the way, we’re free with profanity if you’re worried about your coworkers or somebody’s delicate ladylike sensibilities.)

Why would we build a center in Canada you ask? Well we’re an international human rights movement, and we need to start somewhere. Why not here in the United States? Well because even though there are no real men’s shelters anywhere in the United States either, and only tiny (and often terrible and counterproductive) resources for men where they exist at all, and even though they make up half of all victims of domestic violence in the United States as well as Canada, Earl was doing his best for 20 years up there in Canada. And a journey of a thousand miles starts with one step. Erin Pizzey, founder of the world’s first Women’s Refuge in the UK and the first recognized around the world, struggled for years to find support for helping half the victims of domestic violence (men) and failed. But maybe now we’ve evolved as a society enough to begin to see real progress, and and the vicious cultural lie that domestic violence is about “men’s violence toward women” (which may be the single most bigoted, hateful, and ignorant phrase in our culture today) will finally be thrown in the garbage bin of history’s discarded lies. Which is where it’s always belonged.

If you would like to help the international Men’s Human Rights Movement begin turning the tide and really helping the forgotten, the ignored, the sneered, the marginalized, the kicked to the curb, the demonized victims, you can make one small step in giving here.

I hope you will. Thank you for your kind attention.

(More on the Earl Silverman story here and here. Canadian mainstream press finally broke news of the story here and here by the way, although frankly it should be inspiring international news and outrage.)
