A medical technician is
Africa has invented a device called the Rape-aXe
which is intended to protect women from being raped. It is a hard plastic
sheath that a woman can insert into her vagina like a tampon. During sex when a
man pushes his penis into her vagina he will also push it into the sheath, and
that's where the fun begins. The inside of the device has barbs that tear the
flesh of his penis; it's designed to cling on painfully and it cannot be removed
without medical assistance, see: http://www.antirape.co.za/.
A good idea you might think, "the Rape-aXe defends women from rape!"
Not necessarily. The Rape-aXe is just a weapon, and like most weapons it is
morally neutral. It can be used for the perfectly legitimate purpose of self-defence,
or it can be used to initiate an attack, including an unprovoked attack,
against a man who is doing no harm at all. However when I made this point on
the social media where I discovered the Rape-aXe I was responded to with scorn
and disdain. The supporters of the Rape-aXe showed no concern at all for my
misgivings, and sadly some people seemed quite gleeful about them. I explained
to a friend of mine, a woman I'll call "Nancy", that this meant that all men could be targeted by the
Rape-aXe, including me, regardless of whether or not we personally had hurt a woman. She replied "Good! Now YOU know
how it feels!" She gave a litany of the risks and adversity women have to
face in life, and at the end of this she said: "But this is not about you personally, Ben. I know you're a good guy." I was
dumbfounded and dismayed. Nancy was
actually happy that I might be in
danger, even though at the end she paradoxically admitted that I am innocent
and didn't deserve to be harmed. Harmed very badly perhaps because any injury
to the penis is very serious because of its high blood flow. It bleeds more
than other organs and could even cause death from exsanguination. What's wrong
with women protecting themselves in other ways by learning self defence or
using pepper spray? I'm all in favour of the US Constitutional right to bear
arms; why not let women carry guns in their handbags? How effective is the Rape-aXe as a defensive weapon compared to those others? I can't help but sense that the attraction for this device is primarily symbolic- it attacks the male genitals and so is an attack against manhood. No wonder it appeals to feminists.
It was very strange and very upsetting because I've known
a long time; we live close to each other and have met on several occasions.
We're good friends and she always treats me with warmth and respect... except
now. Her hostility towards me comes from the abuse of women by men in society;
for this reason my own abuse had to be celebrated because I am a man, and it
doesn't matter whether I'm personally guilty or not. Women are being harmed by
men, and this justifies her harming me, albeit just socially. I think that this
is mind-control, a kind I have written about before, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/revenge.html.
The way Nancy behaved is a perfect
example. She transformed in front of my eyes with the abruptness of the killer
in The Manchurian Candidate. One
moment she was normal, my good buddy; and then, in an instant, there was a battle
line between us and I was her sworn enemy. After a moment she snapped back to
normal again. Even more alarming was that in a way I felt myself change too. I ceased to be me, as I sense my own personal identity; I became a nameless faceless man who was all men, a microcosm of half the human beings on Earth, a component in a purely political dynamic. An cipher of hatred for all women. This is how feminism has messed with our minds. Somebody very observantly called feminism "racism for the
rich" and this is true because it tends to be a vice of middle class
liberals. These are people who have rejected racial, religious and ethnic
bigotry, yet the rhetoric of some feminists is indistinguishable from that of
the Nazi's or Ku Klux Klan; you just substitute "men" for "Jews"
or "blacks". Women's rights is sometimes a very reasonable and urgent
cause, but I don't think modern feminism has anything to do with women's rights.
Its true purpose is to mess with our heads, to generate malice and unnecessary
conflict, to divide-and-rule by turning one half of humanity against the other.
It engenders hatred and irrationality in women; and also guilt self-hatred and
thoughtcrime among men. I've lost friends before for saying that and I'll
probably lose a few more now, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/a-friend-to-all.html.
But there is hope, the female conscience is growing and a new group called Women Against Feminism has been founded,
