Defending yourself is nothing more than misogyny

I know everyone already wrote about it, but the Southern Poverty Law Center listed The Spearhead and RooshV, among others, as hate sites against women. First of all, this is what The Southern Poverty Law Center is:

From http://www.splcenter.org/what-we-do :

  • We track the activities of hate groups and domestic terrorists across America, and we launch innovative lawsuits that seek to destroy networks of radical extremists.
  • We use the courts and other forms of advocacy to win systemic reforms on behalf of victims of bigotry and discrimination.
  • We provide educators with free resources that teach school children to reject hate, embrace diversity and respect differences

(nothing wrong with protecting people from violence and teaching people to reject bigotry, but I feel they are getting into thought crime territory)

 

This is how they described The Spearhead (from http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/intelligence-report/browse-all-issues/2012/spring/misogyny-the-sites ):

The Spearhead
The Spearhead is an online magazine that features a range of “voices in defense of ourselves, our families and our fellow men.” One post calls the recently released American version of the movie thriller “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” “hate porn for feminists” and describes its strong female lead as “like a kind of dyke junkie.” Another post includes this fairly typical summation: “I have said it before, and I will say it again; I don’t hate women. I just hate what they do to men.”

A frightening description, right? Kinda like “Men are defending themselves and don’t like it when women abuse them, how dare they”? They are not even trying to make them look hateful, apart from that little comment where someone didn’t like the movie, which everyone does sometimes.

        I can’t believe you! You dare claim that self-defense is misogyny?! Since when?! Self-defense is a human right. Everyone’s entitled to it.

        Misogyny isn’t self-defense. Instead, it’s bigotry against women. And women who defend themselves against men are against them aren’t misandrists. Instead, they’re standing up for what’s right.

        Honestly would you want your right to stick up for yourself taken away from you?

      • Of course I don’t think defending yourself is really misogyny. It was a sarcastic title.
