You can't make wrong into right by doing wrong more effectively. It's time for real MEN to stand up and take back our families, our society, and our self respect. It is not a crime to be born a man. It is not a crime to act manly.

A List of the Oppressed.

I found this partial list of current legal and cultural discrimination against men in the USA. Some of the data is old and things have gotten worse since.

1. WEALTH: Women hold 65% of the country's wealth [Fortune Magazine] They control 86% of all personal wealth [PARADE Magazine, May 27, 1990],

2. CHILD CUSTODY: They win almost automatically in child custody disputes. Women receive custody of 92% of the children of divorce and illegitimacy, and men only 4%. [Department of Health & Human Services]

3. INCOME: Men constitute 60% of workplace hours, work longer hours, work harder, and are more qualified, rarely file sexual discrimination or harassment lawsuits or take pregnancy leave, yet earn only 42% more than women [Dept. Labor]. Of the 25 worst jobs, as ranked by the Jobs Related Almanac based on a combination of salary, stress, security, and physical demands, 24 of them are predominantly, if not almost entirely men.

4. SUICIDE: Men's suicide rate is 4.6 times higher than women's [Dept. Health & Human Services -- 26,710 males vs 5,700 females]

5. LIFE EXPECTANCY: Men's life expectancy is seven (7) years shorter than women's [National Center for Health Statistics -- males 72.3 yrs vs females 79 yrs] yet receive only 35% of government expenditures for health care and medical costs. Three out of every four dollars spent on health care is spent on women. Yet feminists still holler that women's health is being 'neglected', and far too many of us credulously believe them.

6. AFFIRMATIVE ACTION: Men are discriminated against BY DESIGN through affirmative action.

7. FEDERAL TAXES: Even though men pay 115% of federal income taxes women constitute 11% more of the voters.

8. VOTE: Because there are 11% more female than male voters, males have little to no influence on how the male tax dollar is spent.

9. WAR: Men, not women, fight and die in battle [Dept. Defense -- Vietnam Casualties 47,369 men vs 74 women] while women sue the taxpayer when they have their butt pinched.

10. WORKPLACE FATALITIES: Men account for more than 95% of workplace fatalities.

11. MURDER: Men are murdered at a rate almost 5 times that of women [Dept. Health & Human Services -- 26,710 men vs 5,700 women]. Yet because of our society's exaggerated concern and respect for them, special legislation has been passed to punish 'violence against women' as if it were a more heinous crime than 'violence against men'.

12. JURY BIAS: Women are acquitted of spousal murder at a rate 9 times that of men [Bureau Justice Statistics -- 1.4% of men vs 12.9% of women]

13. COURT BIAS: Men are sentenced 2.8 times longer than women for spousal murder [Bureau Justice Statistics -- men at 17 years vs women at 6 years]

14. JUSTICE SYSTEM BIAS: Even though the amount of the average "child support payment" due from women is half the amount due from men, and even though women are twice as likely as men to default on those payments, fathers are 97% of "child support" collections prosecutions [Census Bureau]

15. WELFARE: Even though men are the recipients of less than 10% of all welfare disbursements, men are required to refund welfare payments made to women.

16. SECONDARY EDUCATION: Even though zero percent of American 12th grade girls were able to correctly answer basic math and physics questions, less than one quarter of America's secondary and elementary school teachers are men.

17. HIGHER EDUCATION: There are more than 200 all-female colleges for women and now not one single all-male college for men. 5.8% fewer men than women are enrolled in 4 year colleges, even though two thirds of those who score higher than 550 in SAT Math are men. make up 55% of current college graduates. In 1993 only 44.5% of college enrollment were men, and that figure has declined since then. Only 45.8% of bachelor's degrees were conferred to men in 1992, even though 98.2% of the top fiftieth percentile of the GRE are men, and ZERO PERCENT of American high school girls correctly answered 28 out of 67 TIMES advanced math questions. Only 38.4% of private 4 year college students were men as of 1990 and this figure has declined since then.

18. LEGAL SYSTEM BIAS: 96% of physical altercations resulting in injury to a spouse occurs AFTER the date of separation. [Read: spousal abuse laws that pretend that husbands are dangerous discriminate against husbands when we know that only a very small percent of domestic violence is associated with them]. [Chadwick and Heaton, "Statistical Handbook of the American Family"]

19. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: Even though study after study shows that women are the majority of the initiators of domestic violence, and 58% of the above mentioned physical altercations are initiated by the female, Congress passed the obviously anti-male VAWA and VAWA II. which are known to make the problem far worse. [Read: despite the fact we discriminate against husbands in protective orders, women still cause more than half of domestic altercations because they know they can get away with it].

20. CHILD VIOLENCE: Even though mothers commit 55% of child murders and biological fathers commit 6%, even though NIS-3 shows that Mother-only households are 3 times more fatal to children than Father-only households, children are systematically removed from the natural fathers who are their most effective protectors and men are imprisoned at rate 20 times that of women.

21. FAMILY BREAKDOWN: The US Surgeon General notes that divorce is more harmful to a man's health than smoking tobacco, yet as much as $1.3 Trillion of federal expenditures accomplish little else than undermine family stability.

22. WOMEN PILOTS: Even though women pilots have an accident rate four time that of men pilots, federal laws require that airlines risk the safety of passengers and hire women pilots anyway.

23. WOMEN DRIVERS: Even though the crash rate of women drivers is twice that of men drivers, and even though drinking alcohol increases the crash rate of men by only 5%, the majority of those imprisoned under DUI laws are men, and women are almost never imprisoned for their much higher number of non-alcohol-related crashes.

24. INCARCERATION: Even though feminists brag that 1.4 million American brides commit adultery, and even though women file more than 90,000 false allegations of rape, every year, only 99,000 of the 1.8 million Americans behind bars are women.

25. POLITICS: Women cast 54% of the votes in Presidential elections, so they can hardly claim to be left out of the political decision-making process!

Obviously, God is female. Who else would design a male body with vital organs on the outside?

It is often hinted that the problem of genital vulnerability and protection is uniquely claimed.

The feminist medias try to protect the weaknesses of women and empower women to get over them while exploiting the alleged weaknesses of men.
Therefore the following facts might be bizarrely hijacked by the female supremacists, who try to ridicule and downplay men for having external genitals, particulary testicles.

So while the testicles are vulnerable, testicular injuries are actually uncommon. In addition, the external location of the testicles renders the detection of cancer significantly easier.

Furthermore, the external genitals of the female are also sensitive and some of the experts of self-defense have recommended striking the vulva of a female attacker.
As for the female gonads, women actually suffer more pains related to the menstruation.

The weaknesses of the male system have been exploited and ridiculed by the media, while the rape of women, which does not cause serious injury in the way that a strike or grasping of the testicles may cause, has been declared so serious a crime that death penalty has often been sought, either legally or extralegally.

The feminist bias is being exported all over the world !!

India which had a reasonable family harmony is now being rocked by a so called Domestic violence act which is modeled on the VAWA !!

SO like the communists and other ist, the feminists want global power !!

beware of the global feminist industry !!

Perhaps God made women smaller and weaker to demonstrate just how evil and unjust men are.

Careful, Bob. You are getting dangerously close to publicising the truth as it is, and some people (such as Forty Two) are not going to like that.

Memo to Forty Two: since when are size and strength in any way relevant to evil or justice? Can you prove any connection?

"It is often hinted that the problem of genital vulnerability and protection is uniquely claimed."

well presented.

well written.

in gender bias and male suffering india is no different. only thing is the male is programmed to be silent and accept that they are suppose to make favors and get victimised, thus making one a man enough. and the world thinks something different about the indian male mentality.

the system lack facility of recording the statistics. there are no laws for males at all. and none against the women who commit crimes.

anyways, it was nice to stumble upon this blog. :-)

to know more about indian male suffering visit IndianHusbands blog and related sites.

its high time that international unity of men against the family breaking feminism is required.
