What is Misandry?

What is 'misandry' and what is 'anti-misandry'?
Misandry is the hatred of males as a sex, as opposed to misogyny,
the hatred of women; or misanthropy, hatred of the human species.
Misandry comes from misos (Greek μίσος, "hatred") + andr-ia
(Greek anér-andros, "man"). Those holding misandric beliefs
can be of either sex. Thus it holds to common sense that Anti
Misandry is to work toward removing misandry from our culture.
Can you give me some demonstrations
Sure. Have a look at the second-wave
feminist view of men for an example. Valerie Solanas,
feminist who shot Andy Warhol in 1968, provides
a famous example of misandry in her self-published
SCUM Manifesto. In case you're wondering,
SCUM is an acronym for 'Society for Cutting
Up Men', practically a call for gendercide, the culling of men.
Quite literally, Solanas expressed her desire to "institute
complete automation and destroy the male sex."
Wow, this is pretty bad stuff -
what can I do about misandry?
For one thing, you can stop accepting it as a 'way of life'.
Once upon a time, respect was a two-way street. These days it
is more a one-way street where men are demanded to be respectful
to women (even those who do not earn, or even try to earn it)
while simultaneously disrespect of men is expected, condoned,
perpetuated and even taught. You can make a difference by refusing
to live this way.
Did you just say misandry is 'taught'?
Yes, that's right! The next time you switch on the television,
count how many programmes have the token 'stupid boyfriend'
or 'abusive husband' or 'paedophilic father' figure. Switch
over to a children's channel / time window and watch how many
cartoons or programmes reflect 'silly daddy' characters or 'bullying
big brother'. Don't forget, of course, nearly all the women
in these same programmes will be smart, sexy, sassy and full
of beans, capable of juggling a career lifestyle with children,
a husband and a social circle - let's not forget that she's
undoubtedly a wonderful cook and always remembers everybody's
birthdays. If these images are being constantly spread out over
our airwaves, what does that tell our children who are growing
up watching & learning daily, hourly, that men are just so stupid,
abusive and ... well, useless?
So is it more
feminism's fault, or the media's fault?
A lot of both, but neither would be able to indoctrinate
our youth without the support of.... the government.
Ahh - yes. The government. Tell
me about their involvement?
Well, they positively support and enforce
feminist programmes of anti-male bias.
Think 'Violence Against Women Act' - notice something wrong
in that? Notice how violence against men or children is not
VAWA implies, through it's title alone, that men
are the primary perpetrators of violence - despite 30 years
of research and in excess of 130 scientific studies proving
that intimate partner violence is roughly mutual. Time and time
again, the results say the same "men and women are equally violent
towards one another". And yet, when feminists demand preferential
treatment or additional 'rights', the government promptly delivers,
like a good boy.
Feminists often refer to themselves as wimyn
or womyn. Thiw helps us differentiate normal women from feminist
(man hating) women/womyn. Hence, referring to womyn is not the
same as referring to women in general, but rather, it refers
to womyn who hatemen, commonly known as feminists.
Mens Rights Advocate/Activist
A sexist female-supremacist who advocates
preferential treatment of women over men, or possibly someone
who does believe in true equality and is miseducated on what
feminism is truly about.
A hateful book by a hateful feminist, Valerie
Solanas, SCUM is an acronym for (Society for Cutting Up Men).
This manifesto is often required reading in womens studies classes
to help promote further hatred towards men.
Feminism seems to mean The radical notion
that men are not people.
An acronym for Violence Against Women Act.
It is a terribly sexist act, made by Sen. Biden (who used to
be frequently abused by his order sisters in his youth). It
implies that only women can be recipients of abuce and acts
as a clear deterant to men who need protection from abusive
