White House–mandated campus climate surveys likely to ignore male victims

White House–mandated campus climate surveys likely to ignore male victims - #breakthesilence #rapeculture #IPV

Recently someone on my feed retweeted a reference to a study by Jennifer Freyd on sexual violence at the University of Oregon. I decided to spend some time looking into it, and what I found deeply disturbed me.

I’ll start from the beginning.

In one of the presentations of the study, authors Jennifer J. Freyd, Marina N. Rosenthal, and Carly Parnitzke Smith say this about their survey:

A man falls in love with what he thinks is a beautiful princess or damsel in distress, only to watch her morph into the destructive, devouring witch. In today’s In His Owns Words, P…

!! Raising boys to men vs. The death of adulthood

!! Raising boys to men vs. The death of adulthood

When I was a boy of 10 or so, an old plumber came to my parents’ house to install a new water heater. Although he was old and bent, he was powerful—he easily carried out the old water heater and carried in the new one by himself. And he was skillful, rapidly cutting, cleaning, and sweating the copper pipes, leaving perfect, gleaming fillets of solder at each joint. As I sat on the rickety cellar…

AVFM Special from KraSU with Sage Gerard

AVFM Special from KraSU with Sage Gerard

The last time we brought you a hangout with AVFM Director of Collegiate Activism Sage Gerard and founder of Kennesaw State University Men (KSUM), we spoke of the incredibly inappropriate treatment Sage has faced on behalf of KSUM and AVFM at his school.

Smear campaigns were waged against him there; campaigns which included the direct participation of at least two KSU professors. Anonymous emails…

In His Own Words: Surviving Crazy - #DVAwareness #MentalHealth #Psychology #SocialWork #IPV #DV

It’s day 17 of Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2014 for Men and Boys, the invisible victims of domestic violence. Today’s In His Own Words is from Jim Muldoon.

Jim prefers that his real name be used rather than an alias. He tells yet another tale of a corrupt, misandric and feminist-governed family court. In other words, the status quo.

His description of how the mental health field largely…

Feminism and the absolution of sin

Feminism and the absolution of sin - #Feminism #DV #IPV #WhiteRibbon

A common criticism of feminism is that it removes female agency and promotes perpetual victimhood. Under feminism, women can do no wrong. In fact, this article was prompted by a comment made to me by a woman saying essentially, “I’m a feminist because for years I tried to own my mistakes, but now I don’t have to.” This was disturbing to say the least. But it got me thinking.

The question I’ve…

All in the same boat—really?

All in the same boat—really?

It is a universal truth that a person’s rights end where another’s begin. Put another way, the right to swing my fist ends at the other man’s nose. You cannot gain rights to anything without infringing on the rights of others. There are only so many rights to go round, and feminists who claim their rights without proper regard for the consequences for everyone are engaging in little more than an…

KSY YESbody! issues apology to Sage Gerard - @ksusentinel #KennesawState #MensRights

After Paul Elam and myself have been made the subject of several angry flyers and posts by KSU students, I learned of a (now closed) GoFundMe campaign funding a protest of Male Students in Peril.

The campaign was branded with a student organization called KSU YESbody!.
