    I’m Done Pretending Men Are Safe (Even My Sons)

    This woman is repulsive. Also of note, this is a companion piece-- a follow-up really-- to one she wrote earlier which ended up being published in the Washington Post.

    Here is a link to the earlier post (yes, it's from the Charlotte Observer, but it's a reprint of the WaPo article):

    My teen boys are blind to rape culture

    Here's some additional commentary on her articles:

    Feminist Mom Basically Accuses Her Sons Of Being Rapists-In-Waiting. Because, Feminism.

    (Earlier article)

    Liberal Feminist Whines Because Her Sons Don’t Buy Her Rape Culture Crap
    It's time to call it out for what it is.

    I saw these linked from Dalrock's Blog:

    It's sad to see a mother poisoning her own sons for ideological purity.

    Everyone has tried to tell me that my son’s depression and suicidal thoughts aren’t my fault. Friends have consoled me and therapists, nurses, and psychiatrists have told me about brain chemicals and depression. I’ve grasped at their words, but they’re no match for the fear that beats inside me. It’s comforting on some level to think it’s my fault because if it’s my fault I have the power to change it. But it’s perhaps even more terrifying to believe that this is something I’ve done to my son, whether through bad parenting, crappy genes, or a combination of the two.
    It couldn't have anything to do with you telling him from an early age that he's a monster for being born male, could it?

      "I don’t know what the balance is between supporting these men and educating them, but I know the toll it takes on me to try. I am too valuable and too worthy to waste my time on men who are not my flesh and blood. But as my boys grow into men, I wonder whether I’ve done enough to combat the messages they hear from everyone but me."

      Maybe that's the problem, that they have had to listen to her hate-filled drivel about men. Of note, she does not say that she has been abused by men, she has just been offended by stories she has read and mindlessly believed that all men are the same. She doesn't even say that her sons have done anything but she's judged them guilty anyway. No wonder her kids are f***ed up, she's an emotionally abusive mother.

        "I never imagined I would raise boys who would become men like these. Men who deny rape culture, or who turn a blind eye to sexism."

        Yet she denies sexual assault against men despite growing evidence of the epidemic and fights sexism with sexism.

        "They don't call each other out when they make sexist jokes or objectify women."

        And nor does she when the roles are reversed.

        "It's too uncomfortable to separate themselves from the pack so they continue to at least dip their toes into toxic masculinity."

        As she runs with the feminist herd.

        "He didn't remind him that lack of enthusiastic consent means there is no consent."

        Yes, I always wait until a woman turns cartwheels and begs me for sex before I know she's consenting.

        "My sons are part of the problem."

        No, she is the problem.

        "I've told them why dismantling rape culture is so important to me, but they will never truly understand how survivors feel."

        And she does not listen when males talk about how they feel.

        "No matter how often my sons remind me that they are good men, they don't understand that being "good" is an action. You don't earn the honor by simply shaking your head when you hear about Turner and other rapists being given lenient sentences."

        And what about the lack of sentencing for women offenders?

        Overall I think this was a great article. It must be difficult to write so much with a crayon as they don't allow sharp objects in psychiatric hospitals.
