Men, are you worried for your own safety because misandry?
You need to accept that misandry happens in the real world and take some precautions.
Take a self defense class, they’re only a couple hundred dollars a month.
Don’t go out after dark unless you have a woman to chaperone you.Misandrists are less likely to attack if they see you are with another woman.
Don’t wear anything too douchey. If you’re wearing a fedora or a sexist t-shirt, etc. you’re pretty much asking to get attacked. Misandrists can’t control themselves when they see a man in a fedora, their instincts kick in and before they know it they have a dead male corpse in their hands. Just be a good boy and don’t tempt them, okay?
Don’t ever invite a woman into your home. Misandrists will interpret this as you consenting to physical violence.
Drinking increases your risk of being attacked by a misandrist. They target drunk men because their inhibitions are lowered.
Never leave your drink unattended. Misandrists are notorious for poisoning men at parties and bars.
If a misandrist does attack you, be quiet and just let her finish or you might anger her further and you are liable to get murdered instead of just mutilated. But also, be sure to put up a good fight because a lot of men say they don’t want to be attacked by misandrists but deep down, they really like it.
And remember, accusing a woman of abusive misandry is worse than being abused by a misandrist. So before you make accusations, make sure it wasn’t all just a silly misunderstanding.
If this doesn’t put things in perspective, I honestly don’t know what will.
As a man who has suffered a number of violent crimes, I was somewhat annoyed at how dismissive this post is about the dangers that men and boys face and the experiences of male violent crime victims. I didn’t respond immediately because I didn’t want to write an emotional reponse based solely on my own experiences and feelings. However, after researching crime statistics and victimization rates of different demographics, I’ve gone from somewhat annoyed to livid. My findings:
On average, 77% of homicide victims every year are male. [Source1].
Men are more likely to be victims of violent crime over all, and about five times as likely to be attacked by a stranger. [Source2].
The demographic group most often victimized by violent criminals is teenage boys, who suffer a greater share of gang violence and stranger violence than any other group. [Source2]. Boys are also equally as likely as girls to be victims of dating violence [Source3], and according to the study on sexual victimization in juvenile detention centers from my last post, roughly 90% of cases of sexual misconduct in juvenile detention centers involved a female staff member victimizing a detained minor boy. [Source4].
A recent article about this issue said, “the rate of abuse perpetrated by female guards on male victims is the result of a ‘dangerous combination’ of cultural and institutional problems, not the least of which is the fact that women forcing males into sex does not comport with society’s conventional definition of rape.” [Source5].
"Women forcing males into sex" really doesn’t comport with society’s definition of rape, nor does it comport with the FBI or the CDC’s definitions of rape, which specifically exclude being "made to penetrate" through force, threat, or intoxication from the definition of rape [Source6]. Thus, if a man were held down while a woman forcibly enveloped his penis in her, he would not be counted as a rape victim. If you compare the number of men who reported being “made to penetrate” [Table 2.2 of Source6] with the number of women who reported being raped [Table 2.1 of Source6] within a year of the study, you find that they are roughly equal.
Hopefully, the information I’ve provided is sufficient to convince any reasonable reader that men and boys actually face greater danger walking the streets than women and girls do. In my personal experience, I have been jumped, beaten up, and mugged enough times that during high school, I always carried pepper spray in one pocket, a knife in another pocket, and a large metal spike in my backpack. I used to stuff my money into my shoe in case I got robbed, and tried to do my homework at school whenever possible so that if I got chased, my books wouldn’t drag me down. One of my friends had tried to flee from an attacker, but the assailant had caught him by his backpack and pulled him to the ground so I was concerned about being caught the same way.
That’s why I’m so mad at this post and similar posts I’ve seen on Tumblr, including one that read something to the effect of, “When women go out, they have to worry about rapists and killers. When men go out, they only have to worry about meeting a fat girl. That’s male privilege.” Posts like the one above do nothing but reinforce inaccurate gender stereotypes, dismiss the fears and experiences of male violent crime victims, and strengthen the notion that women and girls need to be afraid to go outside. For anyone who’s really working towards gender equality, these kinds of messages are frustratingly counterproductive.
