Sarah Ditum is a blogger whose analysis of gender issues is so manifestly stupid, you have to wonder if she manages to put on matching shoes every morning. She posted a piece recently which plumbed new depths of idiocy:
I posted a comment last night, but it hasn’t been published. Ms Ditum declines to post my comments these days, maybe my comments in the past have upset the fragile sensibilities of both she and her blog followers, by presenting them with inflammatory material – facts, statistics, arguments based on evidence, those kinds of things. Anyway, I’ve just post some further comments, and on the assumption she won’t publish them, here they are:
“Sarah, do you seriously believe the nonsense you write? Be sure to send the Waterstone’s colouring book story to The Everyday Whining Project. You should have the courage of your convictions, get together with your feminist friends and invest in a new bookstore with non-gendered colouring books – come to that, non-gendered books in general, so don’t stock any ‘chick lit’ or romantic fiction – then watch your money disappear, as surely as night follows day.
Most of your analysis is demonstrably wrong, but I have better things to do with the next two hours than prove it. Gender feminism is immune to rational challenging, because it’s a faith position. You’re as brainwashed as the most delusional religious fundamentalist. Gender feminism is based upon nothing more than conspiracy theories, paranoid delusions, fantasies, lies, delusions and myths.
Why is there no mention in your pieces of the fact that 40% of victims of domestic abuse are men, or that in the majority of cases of unreciprocated DA, women are the perpetrators? Or that for every refuge place available for battered men, there are 266 for battered women? Or that one key reason battered men don’t leave their partners – if they have children – is that they’ll probably never see their kids again, thanks to a state which bends over backwards to enable malicious mothers to emotionally abuse ex-partners and their own children. Why no mention of the fact that the highest levels of DA are among lesbian couples? How does the patriarchy force lesbians to abuse one another? Oh, I know. They’ve absorbed the misogynistic beliefs which, according to whiny feminists, are to be found everywhere.
You didn’t publish the comment I sent last night, so I assume you won’t publish this one either. I’ll publish it on my own website.
Have a nice day.
JUSTICE FOR MEN & BOYS
(and the women who love them)
