(I have started a new category for these posts called Amanda Marcotte’s Misandry.)
It’s time for the daily Amanda Marcotte insanity update. But before we get to that, I would like the thank those of you over the weekend who made a donation to help cover blog expenses. It’s much appreciated. For those of you wishing to donate the link is in the top right corner of the blog or below:
You will want to read the updates from American Power, Robert Stacy McCain, Snark and Snark again. Chuck has found a picture of Maureen Lafontane, the social worker involved with Mr. Ball’s case.
Since yesterday’s post, Amanda Marcotte is digging a deeper hole trying to claim that men committing suicide are abusing women. Yesterday, she tried to claim that a man who attempted suicide to avoid being arrested by the police actually shot himself to abuse a woman. Here is what we have today:
Re: Stories of men abusing wives by killing themselves. Scroll down to the “threats” section. http://bit.ly/h8on5v It’s a common tactic.
@LosTheSkald Oh, for sure. But experts agree that abusers—both male and female, of course—use suicide and threats to hurt their victims.
The link from the first tweet doesn’t even say that men committing suicide is abuse. It says “threats of suicide“. That’s a massive difference. On top of that the link is from an (obviously feminist) organization called Women’s Aid so it’s not like it’s that trustworthy in the first place. Despite her claim in the second tweet, Amanda Marcotte has not shown that “experts” (whoever said experts are supposed to be) have shown that men commit suicide as a way to abuse women.
Even the “threats of suicide” as a form of abuse of women doesn’t really hold water. Men actually commit suicide at a rate of around four times of that of women. Women talk more about committing suicide than actually doing it. With men it’s the reverse. If men are actually using threats of suicide as abuse, then those men are actually more “feminine” than the general population of men. What is most likely the case is that no one in that “Women’s Aid” feminist organization has ever actually talked to a man or has any clue about how men think or the male experience.
@AmandaMarcotte what nuance was there in saying that men often kill selves for revenge? do you nuance all suicides?
@amandamarcotte and how about your duke lacrosse nuance? what about nuance in cases of alleged rapes? you aren’t consistent in your nuance.
The more Amanda Marcotte talks about this subject, the more it’s clear that I was right to call her writings, “pure feminist evil”. I predict in the not too distant future that Amanda Marcotte will claim that dead men are abusing women and that men who go ghost, men who have minimal contact (or no contact if possible) with women, are actually abusing women.
