  • Hello Everyone

    So I'm new around here.
    I'm an artist (sculptor) and a tradesman. I've been looking for a place where I can openly discuss issues facing men for a while, and I can't find anything in my city. So here I am!

    I have a few things I'd like to share, but this is for introductions.

    I would like to leave one thought tho:
    Has anyone else noticed, when stories of tragedies are reported in the news (a bombing, a shooting, a natural disaster) we hear how many women and children are killed, but there's never a mention of the men killed?

    Magus.

      Yes. Women and children are afforded the luxury of being people in our society. While Men are not.

        Hi Magus,

        I think you've come to the right place to discuss these matters. As to the systematic removal of reporting of males, yeah it is a big topic. From the famous is the Save Our Girls campaign, about Boko Haram kidnap victims, where the murder of hundreds of boys was completely ignored, to the everyday removal and back page hiding of stories which would be front page news if the victim was female. Adam Jones published an extensive study into this on the reporting of genocide and atrocity, it is no small effect, and compounds the disposability of males whilst at the same time making women look like a gender based violence victim class.

        Adam Jones's study is here: http://adamjones.freeservers.com/effacing.htm

        Here's a snippet from it:

        This depiction of the horrors of Omarska -- one of the three concentration camps closed after international protests in late 1992 -- is a mind-bogglingly casual inversion of the gendered reality. Helsinki Watch gave the population of Omarska as 2,000 men and 33 to 38 women. In an article for International Affairs on "The Crime of Appeasement in Bosnia," Ed Vulliamy, who witnessed the release of Omarska's survivors, wrote:

        Omarska had been a place where a prisoner was forced to bite the testicles off a fellow inmate who, as he died of pain, had a live pigeon stuffed into his mouth to stifle his screams. The guards responsible for this barbarism were described by one witness as "like a crowd at a sporting match." Another man was forced to bark like a dog and lick at motor oil on the ground while a guard jumped up and down on his back until it snapped. Prisoners, who survived by drinking their own and each other's urine, were constantly being called out of their cramped quarters, by name. Some would return caked in blood, bruised black-and-blue or slashed with knives; others would never be seen alive again. Special squads of inmates were ordered to load their corpses on to trucks. (Vulliamy, 1998: 74-75.)(16)
        Helsinki Watch wrote in Volume II of their study of War Crimes in Bosnia-Herzegovina that Omarska indeed "appears to have been the most brutal of the four Serbian-operated camps that were discovered by the press during the summer of 1982. Almost all former Omarska detainees interviewed by Helsinki Watch claimed that they had been bestially beaten, that scores had died from the beatings and that some were executed." There is no evidence that any of the women at Omarska were killed.(17) The rape of the small number of women at the camp was certainly generalized and atrocious. But by what standard is Omarska "particularly ... notorious" for the rape of its women detainees, when thousands of civilian males were viciously tortured, hundreds killed -- and almost certainly a great many more raped and sexually abused than women, given the unbridled sexual sadism that pervaded the camp?

        It's a long piece but worthwhile reading.

        Hope you enjoy chatting on the forums and welcome.

          Well, that depends; I'm pretty sure that "suspected militants" are assumed to be male, although that's just so that they don't accidentally create sympathy for the people getting blown up.

            Thanks everyone!

            One last thought on the under reporting/ minimizing of violence against men:
            I live in Canada, presently there is a "National Inquiry on missing and murdered indigenous women"

            http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/...ticle28498467/

            "The federal government should not study the alarming rate of violence against aboriginal men as part of its upcoming national inquiry into Canada’s missing and murdered indigenous women, international human-rights experts caution, saying that doing so would confuse the issue."

            Every time I hear something like this in the news I utter #mendontmatter under my breath

In fact, all efforts to restrain me are only further proof of my oppressed condition.'

                      My top item on my list of not caring what happens to men was the hoax that large numbers of women were being killed in Ciudad Juarez, in Mexico. Over and over the MSM repeated that over 300 women were abducted and killed there. But, because I never saw any comparative report on how many men were killed I knew instantly this was another feminist hoax.

                      Finally, after several years El Sol de Puebla reported that in the same time period that 300 women were murdered, over 2500 men were killed. Not only was the percentage of female victims less than in the USA; they were also at a lower rate than in the entire nation of Mexico.

                      Finally, after years of accusations, the Mexican government asked the US FBI to investigate. They did and reported that evidence was no conspiracy was involved. Only the usual random murders that happen anywhere.

                      One specific accusation was that one ranch was where they buried the murdered women. The FBI used ground penetrating radar and opened all graves found. All were identified with ranch death and burial records.

                      Yet, even today, years later, you can see feminist claims that women are being murdered in a major conspiracy and the government is covering it up. As false as global warming.
