Amanda Marcotte wrote this on her twitter:

Female infidelity is worse than rape, according to panicked MRAs.http://j.mp/pZSJHi

What this is in reference to as you can tell from the link is how male feminist (mangina), Hugo Schwyzer, had sex with a woman he called “Jill” years ago.  “Jill” was seeing a man called “Ted” and had sex with “Ted” and Hugo in a short window of time.  “Jill” ended up pregnant, but never told “Ted” that she was having sex with another man.  “Ted” and “Jill” get married because of the baby, but “Ted” could be raising and paying for a kid that isn’t his.

Amanda Marcotte is acting like the only people who have a problem with Hugo’s behavior are “panicked MRAs” who can’t deal with “female infidelity”.  She has lied about what really happened here.  Yes, there was infidelity, but what (potentially) happened here was FRAUD, specifically paternity fraud.  Amanda Marcotte is trying to hide the real issue of FRAUD by claiming MRAs just want to control female sexuality.  At some level she knows that she has to defend Hugo’s behavior in those terms because otherwise what Hugo did looks like any other type of fraud that is illegal (assuming the kid is Hugo’s).

No one should let Amanda Marcotte get away with pretending that FRAUD isn’t the real issue here.

“As you know, you go to war with the Army you have. They’re not the Army you might want or wish to have at a later time.”

-Donald Rumsfeld

There has been a lot of criticism of MRAs speaking out about Thomas Ball from other MRAs and our supporters (such as this) because Mr. Ball isn’t the perfect victim of anti-family courts.  Mr. Ball did slap his daughter and wrote things in his manifesto that could be used against MRAs.  While all of that are good points, remember what Rumsfeld has said.  You go to war with what you got, not what you want or would wish to have later.  The reaction to Mr. Ball has given us several unique opportunities to strike back at feminists despite all the negatives so we must use them.  We can ask questions like, why does Wikipedia not want to talk about him if he’s just an abusive man?  We can point out how feminists like Amanda Marcotte are saying crazy things like male suicide is abuse of women.  Remember she didn’t say it just applied to Mr. Ball.  It applied to men committing suicide in general.  We can also point out how feminists like Amanda Marcotte casually throw out the word, “terrorist”, to describe men who commit suicide, not just Mr. Ball.

Bigger than all of that is the potential for MRM exposure.  Many conservatives hate Amanda Marcotte with a passion so they have run with what we had to say about Mr. Ball and given a platform for exposing the misandry of feminists.  We could not have left that opportunity on the table because Mr. Ball wasn’t perfect.  As Rumsfeld said, sometimes you have to go to war with what you got and not what you wish you had.  This was one of those times.

The votes are in for the May 2011 Entitlement Princess Of The Month.  The winner is the 15 year old girl who shot her dad with a bow and arrow because he took away her cell phone as a disciplinary measure.  She got 71% of the vote beating out Stefanie Woods, the girl who stole money from a 9 year old girl scout selling girl scout cookies.

I’m holding the submissions we had for this month until next month.  There was someone deserving this month so this time I will be awarding the June 2011 Entitlement Princess of the Month right now instead of having all of you vote on it.  Normally I wouldn’t do this but this is a special case.  (Please continue to submit entitlement princesses at this link.)

I have been researching Amanda Marcotte’s history of misandry and came to the conclusion that she deserved the award of June 2011 Entitlement Princess of the Month.  You can read about some of her most recent misandry here.  What clinched the entitlement princess award for her was this:

My roommate says to me, “Oh, Amanda, I’ll hold your hand while you take a pregnancy test,” but that never happened. Then again, I never pushed it, because I am and always will be a loner.

I called my sometimes-boyfriend, my inconstant lover and told him I was probably pregnant. I wanted him to offer to pay for the abortion. He offered instead to marry me.

I nearly threw the phone against the wall. Instead, I told him it may not be his. He said he didn’t care.

I made the case to him that I suppose I’d have to make to some panel in the wet dreams of your average anti-choicer: I wanted to graduate. I didn’t want children. I didn’t want to marry a man who tells me on a regular basis that he can’t decide if he loves me today. I couldn’t believe that I was in the situation of not even knowing who got me that way—I, who had been Ms. Faithful up until my boyfriend started to play games with me. I told him that if I was pregnant, I was getting an abortion and we could all go on our merry ways and live our lives and grow the fuck up. He calmed down and agreed I was right.

This just reeks of entitlement from the demand that her boyfriend pay for an abortion to the idea that it was all right to lie to her boyfriend that she was pregnant with another man’s baby to the fact that she expected her boyfriend to read her mind.  There is also all the “I want” and “I don’t want”.  This is all pure entitlement princess so Amanda Marcotte wins the June 2011 Entitlement Princess of the Month.

Amanda Marcotte and other feminists are continuing to dig a hole all the way to the core of the Earth when it comes to Thomas Ball.  She wrote a piece on Thomas Ball for Pandagon saying the following:

Ball luckily didn’t hurt anyone but himself, but his is just another story in what is a growing list of acts of violence and domestic terrorism from the unhinged element on the right.

Since when did suicide become an act of violence against other people?  Since when did suicide become an act of TERRORISM?  Mr. Ball went out of his way to make sure no one else got hurt in his suicide.  He can not be compared to a suicide bomber.  There is no way a rational person can consider this man a terrorist.  Mr. Ball didn’t terrorize anyone which is a fundamental part of the definition of terrorism.  On the other hand, an anti-family court terrorized Mr. Ball so that court could be considered “terrorist”.

The feminists commenting at Pandagon are just as insane as Amanda Marcotte.  Here is an example:

I was caught off guard by Ball’s statement that the Klan is a hate group in his rambling manifesto. I wasn’t expecting that because of the intersections between MRA’s, tea baggers and hate groups.

What intersection between MRAs, the Tea Party, and hate groups?  The Tea Party hasn’t done anything for mens rights issues and there’s no link between the MRM and hate groups.  White Supremacists are really feminists.  The ideology of the WKKK (Women’s KKK, the female section of the KKK) was almost the same as modern feminism. It’s not surprising that Mr. Ball would want nothing to do with hate groups that are filled with white knights for women.  Maybe Mr. Ball also remembered that the false rape industry started with white women in the South falsely accusing black men of rape and realized the connection between that and the modern false rape industry.

If you thought that last comment was insane, take a look at this:

Suicide threats are an extremely typical Nice Guy tactic.  I have had so many guys say something like “Oh, I guess I should just kill myself then” if I turned them down for a date or broke up with them.

I have always been of the opinion that the “nice guy” doesn’t really exist except as a caricature and a straw man.  This confirms it for me.  The idea that there’s a group of men seriously threatening women with suicide if they don’t date them is so far from reality that I can’t believe that it’s taken seriously by other commentors at Pandagon.

Another commentor go farther into the realm of absurdity:

Guys like him are narcissistic assholes. He doesn’t “like” anyone; they only exist for him. For guys like him, kids aren’t there for him to love and care for, they’re there as a display of the might power of his penis and the fact that he’s had sex with a woman.

This is just proof that feminists don’t consider men to be human beings.  What other possible reason is there for writing something so absurd?

Dr. Helen has written about this subject again, this time at Pajamas Media. A lot of the comments were from white knights who kept accusing Mr. Ball of taking away his kids’ father.  They didn’t realize that the anti-family courts had already done this.  Regardless Dr. Helen made an interesting point:

As one of my commenters pointed out in a post I put up on the case, when a woman burns her husband to death in his sleep, it’s seen as a major wake-up call regarding violence against women, and is immortalized in an award-winning movie starring Farah Fawcett titled The Burning Bed.

But somehow, when a man like Thomas Ball burns himself up, it is not seen as a wake-up call for how men are treated unjustly by the court system. Instead, some “compassionate souls” see his death as  yet another wake-up call regarding the needs of women. Do men ever matter to these “feminists,” or do they get pleasure out of men’s pain? I am thinking the latter.

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.

And:

@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.

Our own Chuck had a couple of good responses:

@AmandaMarcotte what nuance was there in saying that men often kill selves for revenge? do you nuance all suicides?

And:

@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.

(I have started a new category for these posts called Amanda Marcotte’s Misandry.)

My last post on Amanda Marcotte has generated a lot of hits.  First Snark sent it to the mens rights reddit.  Then it got sent to Instapundit/Glenn Reynolds.  My thanks to the both of you.  Since then that post has been linked at Dr. Helen, American Power, and elsewhere.  The daily hitcount for yesterday and especially today has been far beyond anything I have ever had.  That being said there have been some interesting reactions.

The first is from Mara who commented here on the blog.  (There was some question whether Mara was Maura from this post who was obsessed with my genitalia.    I checked the IP addresses and they are clearly two different people.)  She tried to use the fact that Mr. Ball once slapped his daughter as an excuse to justify the feminist totalitarianism used against him in anti-family court. Here is what Mr. Ball had to say about that:

When I got the Court Complaint form the box was checked that said Domestic Violence Related. I could not believe that slapping your child was domestic violence. So I looked up the law. Minor custodial children are exempted. Apparently, 93% of American parents still spank, slap or pinch their children. To this day I still wonder if Freyer would have made this arrest if it had been the mother that had slapped the child.

This site I pulled that quote from is thomasjamesball.com, a website recording all of the facts about what happened to Mr. Ball.  If this was as simple as Mr. Ball being a violent man, then why is there an attempt to erase all knowledge about him at places like wikipedia?

Worse than Mara, we have a conservative who responded to Glenn Reynolds defending the anti-family court system:

Assistant Village Idiot here. People who have a hair across their ass in general about the family court system are trying to keep the Thomas Ball story alive as if he is some kind of victim. In his efforts to have unsupervised visits with his daughter, he was told to have his visits supervised by Monadnock Family Services. He refused because he blames them for his problems.

I deal with that agency all the time, though not the children’s services – I have for 30 years. They are entirely reasonable people who make adjustments and accommodations for people who don’t like them or are suspicious of them all the time. Hell, they are a mental health center, so most of their clients are difficult and suspicious. They are not some Orwellian controlling agency. Ball decided that being pissy and proving that he was right about one incident ten years ago was more important than seeing his daughter. He’s no victim.

Family courts may indeed be prejudiced against fathers – I hear that, but I don’t know. I’ve certainly dealt with many cases of NH courts ruling in favor of fathers in custody disputes, though, and I don’t see a massive trend here. It pays to remember that MFS cannot tell its side of the story because of confidentiality, and that some pathological people hide by trying to tie themselves to legitimate causes. Wolves hide in sheep’s clothing, because it doesn’t do any good to hide in wolves’ clothing, does it?

Here is the blog of the guy that wrote that.

Again, the question has to be asked, if it’s this simple then why is there an attempt to hide what Mr. Ball did from places like wikipedia?  This guy says he has had no dealings with children’s services and really doesn’t know if anti-family courts are prejudiced against fathers.  Those of us who do know, know that anti-family courts are prejudiced against men.  We have decades of evidence proving that fact.

Amanda Marcotte has finally responded to this on her twitter:

@AmPowerBlog Yep. It’s not uncommon for abusers to turn to self-harm to continue exerting control over their victims. http://chzb.gr/lLvaEz

Glenn Reyonds asked (most likely rhetorically) if Amanda Marcotte said the original quote from manboobz.  Since she is now defending it, there should be no question it was Amanda Marcotte.

Take a look at her link.  It’s about a criminal who barricaded himself in a hotel room with a woman.  At the end of the standoff, the man decided to shoot himself in the chest in an attempt to not be arrested by police.  The woman he was with was completely unharmed.  In Amanda Marcotte’s deluded mind, this man was shooting himself to screw a woman over.  What Amanda Marcotte said makes about as much sense as saying that UFOs were involved in this incident.

When it comes to committing suicide what group is doing it the most?  Men.  Divorce radically increases the chances that a man will commit suicide. Rather than recognize this as the tragedy it is and recognize the part that anti-family courts are playing in ending these men’s lives, Amanda Marcotte is claiming that men who commit suicide are doing it to screw over a woman.  The only logical conclusion that can be drawn from this is that Amanda Marcotte does not think men are human beings.

(I have started a new category for these posts called Amanda Marcotte’s Misandry.)

When it comes to dealing with the reality of Thomas Ball, who committed suicide by setting himself on fire due to feminist anti-family courts, feminists and their magina sycophants have been trying to find ways to avoid dealing with that reality.  Some are trying to cover up what Thomas Ball did. Amanda Marcotte used a different tactic on the manboobz blog:

I’ll point out that setting yourself on fire is an extremely effective tool if your goal is to make your ex-wife’s life a living hell, and if your anger at losing control over her overwhelms all other desires. Which is common enough with abusers, who will ruin their own lives and their own shit and turn their children against them in an effort to hurt the woman they’ve fixated on.

Words can not express my disgust with this.  It’s pure feminist evil.  A man gets severely abused by feminist anti-family courts to the point where he thinks he has no hope left and only has the choice to end his own life, but Amanda Marcotte thinks the “real victim” is his ex-wife.  A man whose life was destroyed by anti-family courts burns himself to death, but Marcotte thinks a woman is the hardest hit.

There’s so many more things I could say about this, but why?  Marcotte’s remark and its crass and feminist nature speaks for itself.
