Did  Feminism provoke Toxic Masculinity? – By Yvonne Sam

Did  Feminism provoke Toxic Masculinity?

– By Yvonne Sam

In the search for the truth consider beginning at the root.

I listened with rapt attention to the testimonies of both the sexually assaulted professor Christine Blasey –Forde and the aggressor likely Supreme Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh.  With equal intensity along with the rest of the world, ( or so I think) I listened to female after female recount their  tales , some more explicitly detailed than others of being at the receiving end of undesirable and unsolicited male advances.

While the political imbroglio deepened, women took to the streets in major U. S cities to highlight women’s issues, and to ensure that their voices were heard especially where it pertained to the likely voting for Brett Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court Judge, a position that he would occupy for the rest of his living and giving years. Say NO for Judge Kavanaugh was the popular chant. .   

Not to be omitted or let off the hook, in this sexual assault awareness blitz disguised as a nomination hearing was the media. For an entire week the viewing public was held hostage bombarded with non-stop coverage of sex, sexuality, personality and timidity, sexual prowess, drinking and not thinking, falls with no recall and senators with intent to use their vote to rock the  nomination boat.

As my cranium gradually moved into overload, I was forced to wonder what has caused men to behave so viciously towards women.  The truth be told I am not particularly passionate about institutional surveys which in the majority of cases are often influenced by the paying party. Nevertheless, not wanting to lean on my own understanding or any part of it, I sought the wisdom of the senior human occupants of this planet, males, who recalled being raised in an era when females were placed on a pedestal and respected unconditionally.   The proffered answers only served to bolster my ongoing but closely guarded fears.

The feminist movement brought women down from that pedestal so that they could compete with men on an equal level.  Most males on the other hand looked upon this ingression into the world of sexual liberation as an invitation to dispose of their previous respect.  Many men did not regard these latter-day libertines in a favourable light, and as such were accordingly treated which in no way excuses this behavior.  I was a mere teenager when the summon for Women’s Liberation began, and even to present day I distinguish that those women were in no way like the the early women’s movements – the suffragettes who earned women the right to vote etc..

While women were certainly desirous of being equally paid for equal work done, and for the breaking down of impediments to equal opportunity, even in my young adulthood I sensed the deceitfulness of those feminist leaders demanding petty charges of sexist behavior that women were just as guilty of.

Women insisted– Do not call me babe, or honey, do not open the door for me or allow me to go first. I can do it myself.   The angry leaders of the Women’s Liberation Movement focused on all men as perverse and depraved and insisted that we burn our bras. Pray tell what was the logic behind such a directive?  Was it sexist to prevent large breasts from sagging so that men would no longer admire female figures? These proposals were insane to say the least and only served to confirm the opinion that radical men-hating feminists were at the helm.

Not to be quieted or outdone these feminists have moved from being frivolous and narrow-minded to seriously unbalanced and irrational claiming that they are empowering women. In this regard permit me to cite a statement released by Principal Susanna Jones, head of Holton-Arms School, the private preparatory school for girls in Bethesda, Maryland, that Kavanaugh’s accuser attended: “As a school that empowers women to use their voices, we are proud of this alumna for using hers.” Empower! Really !
Frankly speaking the only good thing if one may say so, that emerged from the women’s movement was the word Ms., which took care of the problem of addressing women whether they were single or not. Today we are faced with women approving the removal of pronouns and opting for over a hundred substitutes. We have males being allowed to enter women’s bathrooms where children are present, we also have women who profess that that the best thing in their lives is the choice of being able to kill an inopportune fetus in their wombs. Viewed from an ironic stance, it is the men who have gained most from women’s liberation because no longer do they have to shoulder any responsibility for either birth control or its failures.

Most women can claim that they have been “hit on”, propositioned or been the victim of unwanted and unwarranted advances. By the same token, real women know how to creditably handle such situations, but the radical feminists who claim to be empowered run to radical feminists lawyers to extract their pound of flesh.

What does the word empower really mean in today’s society?,…. for I fail to see even with optic enhancement where the female gender have benefitted from the women’s liberation movement.

I still see young women baring their bodies, because the jobs that call for that pay the highest salaries.  Authentic role models for minority females like the brilliant women depicted in the movie Hidden Figures, or accomplished women like Condoleezza Rice are passed over in favor of Beyonce and other sparsely-clothed television celebrities.

According to a well-known journalist—“How we react to life’s vicissitudes is what defines empowerment”.  Betty Friedan, the leading feminist activist in the women’s movement in the U.S saidMen are not the enemy, but the fellow victims. The real enemy is women’s denigration of themselves” Perhaps some attention should be paid to this twist by the head of the feminist.

As we continue to watch the ongoing assault on Judge Kavanaugh by females who have used their alleged sexual assaults to defeat a possible adversary, we can also also witness the decline of credibility of future real victims.   Let the feminists have their say, and ultimately decide if their femininity has provoked male toxicity.

    You mean alleged “aggressor” don’t you

  • Emanuel  On October 8, 2018 at 3:33 pm

    Under oath, one told the truth and the other lied. Dr Ford told the truth. To suggest that she’s credible is to suggest that she told the truth. To suggest that she might not recall who attacked is preposterous, that her memory is faulty.

    Which one you expected Kananaugh or any other man to admit to his crime?

    Americans are wakig up against the CIA plot, but a few overseas Guyanese who constantly post lengthy articles on the comments section from CIA approved sources are part of the 25%?

    #METoo is a CIA asset as legitimate accusations of sexual misconduct from the LGBTQ community are not acknowledged, but only the smear campaign against all men.

    As much I wish to have burned down the Union Jack flag on the day it was lowered down, but I wasn’t born then, I truly believe that metoo is a re-enactment of Jim Crow laws that are now applied to all men.

    Nikola Tesla on Women – Why He Never Married ….. VIDEO

    Nikola Tesla (10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) interview for a newspaper, showed his views on women and why he never married. Even though he was alive over 100 years ago, the observations he made on the deteriorating nature of women seem to have gone its full course, meaning that the article certainly would not be published today.

    We are the unfortunate men who are forced to deal with Tesla’s disturbingly accurate predictions.

    Nikola Tesla was a great inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist who is best known for his contributions to the to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system, one of his major projects being power from the Niagara Falls.

    ” she might not recall who attacked, her memory is faulty”

    One leading female senator, Susan Collins, said just about the above as an excuse for voting ‘yes’. Are some women not just as disloyal as men.

    • Emanuel  On October 10, 2018 at 2:41 pm

      Albert, Collins put party and politics above principle. For her to say that Ford was attacked but cannot recall who her attacker was is beyond belief. Collins and others should have done the right thing and voted no. Washington politics is corrupt and full of stench, starting with the man at the top.

    Black Men, NOT White Guys, Face False Allegations and a Presumption of Guilt

    Petula Dvorak | The Washington Post

    Welcome to Fear, White Guys!

    Come on in, the water sucks.

    Ask just about every black man in America.

    From stop-and-frisk to driving while black to wrongful murder convictions, African American men have always endured the suspicion that President Trump now fears on behalf of ALL MEN.

    “When you are GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT, it’s just not supposed to be that way,” Trump said last week. “That’s a very dangerous standard for the country.”

    Well, yeah.

    That’s what all the kneeling at football games is about, remember?


    But Trump isn’t talking about Walter Scott or Tamir Rice or Philando Castile — all shot and killed by police without cause.

    He’s talking about men like him — party guys who are vulnerable to allegations of sexual assault. In fact, Trump has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than a dozen women and branded all of them liars.

    Then he mocked Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Brett M. Kavanaugh of trying to rape her when they were teenagers — and then watched him get confirmed as a Supreme Court justice anyway.

    Trump — and half the Senate — not only ignored her testimony, but Trump also took it a step further Monday, calling the allegations a “HOAX”.

    He said it was “all made up, it was fabricated, and it’s a disgrace.”

    So, now white men who haven’t had to worry about being searched because of a busted taillight or accused of shoplifting while browsing in a store are all worked up about being falsely accused of rape.

    How awful it would be to have someone not believe them as they professed their innocence. How messed up would it be if they were arrested. It was a new feeling for many of them, enraging, even scary.

    And if it wasn’t the men exploring this new feeling of potential victimhood, it was the mothers of white boys who said they’re worried about their sons or husbands being falsely accused.


    Keep your hands on the steering wheel. Don’t wear your hood up. Keep your hands out of your pockets. When you’re black, the stakes of being falsely accused are terrifying.

    If he were still alive, John Crawford III could explain the consequences when someone doubted he was buying a BB gun at an Ohio Walmart.

    Philando Castile could describe what happened when an officer refused to believe he had a permit for the gun in his glove box.

    Emmett Till could recount the horrifying result when he was falsely accused of flirting with a white woman at the age of 14.

    But they were all executed, following those false accusations.

    Of course, that’s not what the men afraid of the #MeToo movement are talking about. They’re just worried they’ll lose their jobs, get arrested or even jailed.
    This is also something black men are familiar with.

    A new report on exonerations concluded that African Americans were wrongfully convicted at an alarming rate. The National Registry of Exonerations, a joint project among the University of California at Irvine, the University of Michigan Law School and the Michigan State University College of Law showed that 47 percent of the people who were exonerated were black.

    REMEMBER: Just 14-PERCENT of the U.S. population is black.

    But really, there’s not a lot to worry about if you’re a young man accused of rape. The numbers are in your favor.

    Fewer than 1 percent of all rape cases end with a felony conviction.

    And even then, some don’t go to jail. Only 0.6 percent end up behind bars, according to an analysis of federal crime statistics done by the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network.

    Whether or not you really did it, you probably won’t be convicted, and it’s really unlikely you’ll go to jail.

    You may even make it to the White House. Or the Supreme Court.

    Regarding Nikola Tesla, why is it hat white men in the Anglo countries tend not to disapprove of the barbaric, petty tyrant and rabid behaviour of their women?

    Many older white men who have suffered under Family Court, police harassment and Divorce Law have resorted to fleeing Canada and USA for Asia. They have even adopted a moniker called MGTOW, Men Going their Own way.

    Is it laughable that America can invade sovereign nations and brutalize the locals, but the white men are afraid of their own women?!

    So next time when you see an American army ranger in camo doing crimes against humanity against Venezuela, remember that his wife is having sex with another man back in the USA, and when the army ranger returns to America with PTSD and lost limbs, she will dump him and have police tase, brutalize and bankrupt him that he will die by suicide in some ditch, but he doesn’t want to fight back like how the American military murders thousands of innocent civilians in sovereign countries.

    Well written. I enjoyed reading the article.

  • Trevor  On October 15, 2018 at 6:33 pm

    Woman lied on video, yet man, who’s mixed Black was treated guilty befor innocent.

    Once Guyana’s politicians accommodate for the hundreds of thousands of Europeans and white Latinos vis a vis the “oil rush”, this same thing will happen to my brethren in GT as the white woman corrupts every sister with their feminist poison.

    If American, Canadian and European nation feminists actually care for women, they would first stop buying US$5,000 handbags that were made from exploited women and children in third world countries.
