William Gruff is one of a number of regular and valued contributors of insightful comments to this blog. He’s just posted a comment in response to our last blog piece, which concerned the ‘Violence Against Women and Girls’ Summer Newsletter. In case you might otherwise have missed his comment, here it is, in its entirety:
A friend of mine died of cancer three years ago. He was one of the nicest men I have ever met. However, he was very weak where women were concerned and while in no sense the sort of white knight who jumps at every chance to protect a woman he was completely incapable of standing up to them and was easily manipulated.
Talking of the problems he’d experienced in getting his aggressive cancer diagnosed, he said to me, with some bitterness, while a hospice in-patient, that had he been a woman his concerns about the lump growing in his armpit would not have been laughed at and he would have been examined thoroughly straight away. I don’t think he’d ever have swallowed the red pill, had he lived; he would undoubtedly have seen things from a significantly less gynocentric position however.
The point of all that? I don’t think most men will wake up until they realise that we are being sacrificed on the altar of a hateful ideology for the comfort and convenience of women. Any measure that increases institutionalised female privilege, and consequent male disadvantage, to the point that it can no longer be ignored or tolerated, is to be welcomed. [my emphasis] There is no gain without pain.
The sentence I’ve emphasised accords with our view that feminism will ultimately (and inevitably) fail because feminists’ appetite for female privileging is insatiable. The community of men (and women) who understand that feminism is about gender supremacy, not gender equality, is growing by the day.
