Shaming Tactics

Oh Sael!

harpies

Is Sael Palani just a fucking idiot, or a dishonest cunt?

Actually, she’s both.

However, rather than just calling her names (however true and accurate they may be), let’s instead use this as an educational opportunity to visit some of the oft-used shaming tactics to attempt to keep men “in line” and from being full individuals exerting their free will over their own lives.

See here: http://youtu.be/yEsgOjFznao

Now let’s go over them:

-Dismissive attitude from the beginning: also known as “poisoning the well”, a tactic aimed to discredit the target before even presenting any arguments. Notice the air quotes and the use of “so-called” at 0:25 .

-Generic shaming language such as “pathetic” throughout. Also notice the look of utter disdain on her face at 0:45 (lol).

 [Here is a fun drinking game: take a sip whenever she uses the word “pathetic”] (actually don’t do it, heavy drinking is unhealthy)

-Accusation of being “depressed” (in the annotation at 0:54 and at 3:30), and generally denigrating the mental state of the person you are trying to shame. Why criticize the arguments if you can just dismiss them as suffering from mental illness?

-Accusation of misogyny followed by an outright dismissal of arguments and evidence presented (1:00), also without addressing any of it.

-Accuse people discussing their issues of “not taking charge of their lives” and just complaining about them instead (1:35 and 6:40).

-Claim they want “attention” 1:46

-Claiming concern about negative impacts, pretending to care (concern trolling) 1:53 and 11:15

-Challenging the maturity of men: “little boy stamping his feet” 2:14 and “temper tantrum” 3:50

-Also notice how she claims to be speaking for “the rest of the world”

-Accusations of being selfish/self-centered “pathetically so involved in their own drama” 2:55 “incapable of feeling and giving and accepting love” (that’s right, if you talk about something that concerns you or have feelings she disapproves of, like not liking being used for money and then rejected/disposed of, you are incapable of feeling love)

-Accusations of inexperience along with a NAWALT (Not All Women Are Like That) 3:15

-Open mocking (even though she acknowledges that many women are gold diggers), notice her tone at 3:55

-Ignoring statistics and claiming these men “don’t live in the real world” 5:10

-Threats: “you are never going to have any kind of deep, meaningful relationship with anybody” 6:02 (so don’t you dare take a stance against toxic or vapid individuals).

*As a side note, notice how at 7:10 or so, she starts talking about how people who care about animals are good people, but doesn’t mention how Cesar Milan, the Dog Whisperer is currently being taken to the cleaners by his ex-wife, and tried to commit suicide as a result of all the strain this has taken on him.

So there you have it folks, the thinly-veiled cry of desperation. After all, the best defense is a good offense. Don’t fall for it.

Go ahead, spread the word, make your own responses, don’t stay silent in face of these bullshit shamming tactics.

Like this:

Until next time, take care of yourselves, and all the best in your endeavors, and most of all, remember that Men Matter Too.

Just Imagine

Just imagine: someone or something kicks you out of your house, separates you from your possessions, and prevents you from getting back in.

Where do you go? Really, where do you go and what do you do? What is your action plan? Do you even have one? Is there even a place where you can stay immediately? What about medium to long term?

Well this scenario is far from being hypothetical for all too many innocent and loving men. A simple false allegation of spousal abuse, or sexual assault, of child abuse, or even just claiming to be “scared” by a woman is enough to initiate such a grueling process.

All your rights are belong to us

How does it work?

The woman gets a restraining order placed on you, you get kicked out of your house by the police, with no time to pack, and you can’t get back in, can’t get your stuff. Think you can go to court and argue in front of a judge to lift an unfair and unjustified restraining order based on unsubstantiated allegations? Good luck with that, it will take weeks to months to get a hearing, if you even get one at all, and once you do, if you do, you’re quite unlikely to get the order rescinded.

If false allegations of rape or violence or abuse are made, you go straight to jail, do not pass Go, do not collect $200. Just like that.

“How can this be?” You ask.

Well this is the crux of the problem. Men’s due process rights have been erodedto such an extent that they are outright being denied and ignored.

So again, let me ask you: where do you go?

A hotel? That’s expensive, and is no place to live. Another apartment or house? Again very expensive, particularly when you’re still required to pay mortgage on the house you’ve been evicted from.

Think it can’t happen to you? Well it happens to lots of unsuspecting men all the time. 50% of marriages end up in divorce, 70% of which are initiated by women, often for trivial reasons such as “boredom” or “falling out of love” (whatever that means).

You’ll cohabitate before getting married to make sure she’s the right one? Well that may will very likely lead you to being married without even knowing it, let alone consenting to it or signing any sort of contract.

It can and will happen to you, one psychotic break or whim is all it takes. A bit of greed on her behalf, nothing more.

Not to mention, women in the process of initiating a divorce or in a child custody battle are also all the more likely to file false allegations to gain the upper hand.

Not convinced you have NO rights? See the examples in the following videos:

Unfair, right?

So, you may be asking, “what can I do about this?”

Well my friend, it’s simple:

First, get the word out: Share this blog with as many people as you can, either on social media, in online forums, at your church, at your bowling club, at your gym, with your friends and relatives, anyone who cares about justice and personal rights and freedoms.
