This.

After years of being treated as disposable, unwanted, or worse, men are starting to check out of the game.

Just the idea of a man can give some women a case of the vapours, See the recent kerfuffle at Wellesley College for an example. There are safe spaces set up where men aren't allowed, or at best, get to sit quietly in the corner and nod in agreement. Sitting the 'wrong' way on public transit creates a large outcry.

Pretty much, women have been telling average men that they don't want or need them, and society would be better off without men.

Now that women are getting what they said they want, it seems that some of them are unhappy with it.

Toggles: Sucks that there was a victim. But that person failed to live in the same world as the rest of us, where gender biased violence does happen and needs to be guarded against. She expected 'a man' to be there to protect her and her expectations were not met and then she whined about that.

Bummer about being a victim. But in good conscience I will still groan and shake my head about the fact that she was a dumb victim.


The reason she's getting so much flack is not just because she was not too smart for being where she was (I grew up in Philly, am a 6'1" guy, and I wouldn't be where she was after midnight), but that there are plenty more women (in my experience) who would voice the same sentiments if asked. The idea that she is not alone is the real ass-kicker in a society which more and more has made men superfluous, a vestigial, appendix-like organ rather than a vital and necessary part of the body.

The whole gist of the ire at her stems from decades of daughters being told that men weren't necessary anymore, yet she chooses to call upon us for protection and bemoans the fact that we aren't there. The sad thing is that I have YET to hear any father tell his son that women aren't necessary or needed, FARK memes ("Disregard Females, Acquire Currency") aside.

Saying you don't need men then complaining when they aren't around is like complaining that the supermarket doesn't have creamed corn for sale when you don't like creamed corn.

It's fine by me. Wanting a man for protection is a common desire among women. I don't know if it stems from biology or society, but it's there. I don't begrudge them for it.


Wanting a man to protect you is one thing, blaming men for your assault by not being there is another. The consultant implying that thieves hurting women was worse than thieves hurting men was even worse. The guy who actually did try to stop the thief got shot. I'd think that any feminist would be appalled at this woman's thinking.

So in other words, Sanchez needs to start a movement to bring back the Chivalrous man, and lobby for firearms laws that will allow said Chivalrous men to protect effectively. If your loudest members lobby and legislate away our ability and desire to protect, then even if you personally disagree with rabid Feminist rhetoric you will still suffer for what you allowed those representatives to do. Women have no one to blame but themselves for the death of Chivalry in today's society.

This woman is simply scared and, rightly or wrongly, looking to men for help. If, as a man, your reaction to her is, "Haha, biatch! You must pay for the crimes of Gloria Steinam!" you need to seek help.


You mean the woman who walked out of a bar in a downtown city area after midnight with her girlfriend, whence she and her friend got mugged and shot and her knee-jerk response is:

"Why wasnt a MAN here to protect me?"

My snarky answer is: Probably with the rest of the men that she blames for things that genuinely arent their fault/ concern.
My more reasonable response is: Not out at a bar in a shady area of town after dark, alone.

I wouldn't have worded it exactly like this but I can't disagree with it.  When you do everything you can to emasculate men you don't get to sit around whining that there are no 'real men' left.


Not to mention trying to raise men from boys without a man to put the fear of a real ass-whuppin' in them to keep them straight and narrow.

Back when I was a teen and suffering from the normal amount of testosterone poisoning, I stopped fearing what my mother could do for punishment:  I was faster, stronger, and bigger than she was.  Her attempts to intimidate me into obeying were (to me at the time) laughable.

The *ONLY* ace card she held was "Wait until your father gets home", and what an ace card that was.

Not that I was all that bad of a kid, but I could have gone over to the dark side relatively easily without the steadying influence of an older, wiser male to keep me from going in that direction.

That's not to say that it's a fool-proof, 100% successful arrangement, but it's a damn sight better than having just a single female parent (especially one who got pregnant as a teen herself) raising a male child who has never had the constant steadying influence of a male.

There is an almost 1 to 1 relationship between crime rates and the rate of out-of-wedlock births in a given area.  The higher the bastardy rate, the higher the crime rate.

If I give her advice about taking a cab, avoiding parts of town, not traveling in the dark, not insulting the guy mugging you with the gun, not dressing a certain way or other helpful advice, I'll be accused of mansplaining, or about stepping on her freedoms.

When my daughter went to college in Boston and walked home from the library (Yeah, right) late at night, she'd wear a Red Sox hat and hoodie, and if anyone approached her, she'd tell them to "fark off" in her best Boston accent.  She claims it worked.   When their was a specific concern about a series of muggings between Back Bay and her apartment, she took a cab.

Silly_Sot: Benevolent Misanthrope: ZAZ: The mayor of Boston recently warned women not to walk alone at night after a series of assaults. Cue the angry feminist newspaper columnist.

Right.  The angry feminist is the problem.  Not the fact that women cant walk alone at night.  Men can, by and large, walk at night.  Women canèt walk at night.  Because of the men.

Encourage women to own firearms and learn how to use them--and that means more than just target shooting. Nikki Craft understood this decades ago, when she and several fellow feminists formed an armed women's group. The liberals around her were shocked and horrified that she did this. Stand-up, respectable fighter, Ms. Craft. May not agree with all her politics, but I agree with and understand her point in that case--if the feminist rhetoric is true and women cannot rely upon men to protect them or to even not treat them brutally, then it behooves women to use any means necessary to defend themselves.


Well, that was special.
Where do you think women store these self defense firearms for easy access?

Wendy's Chili: GoldSpider: xanadian: In other news:  I don't get the headline.  :/

Dunn coined the famous catch phrase: "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle," which was subsequently popularized by Gloria Steinem and became a popular slogan among feminists.

Oh, I get it. It's 'amusing' because the story has nothing to do with feminism.

Or is it 'amusing' because women are being senselessly murdered?

Maybe I don't get it.

Do any of you message board misogynists care to explain it to me?


There seemed to be an assumption on the part of the woman interviewed that the lives of men were worth less than the contents of her purse eg the quote "Where are our men? Why are they not protecting us?" Sanchez continued, her voice full of frustration. "Men are failing us. I feel as though we are not being protected."

Personally I feel that by my not robbing/murdering Ms Sanchez or any other woman that I have achieved the bare minimum of necessary effort to avoid accusations of misogyny...until you started posting.

cgraves67: Nana's Vibrator: padraig:
A Vuitton bag is a big "Rob me" sign.

Oh god, no.  Why would someone gamble with jail time by stealing personal items from a woman with poor taste?

Because they can be fenced on the black market, and the risk of jail time can't be too high. It doesn't say anything about these thugs being caught yet.


Bait purses? Works with cars...

I always thought that the handbag was the stupidest thing on Earth : sure, ladies, put ALL your valuable possessions in one easy-to-snatch bag. Even more better when the bag itself is more several times the iPhone that it contains, your money, your papers, and so on...

Thieves snatch purses because it's easy. Police tells people not to leave valuable in plain sights in cars. A Vuitton bag is a big "Rob me" sign.
