Time to Dispose of Radical Feminist Pork
Phyllis Schlafly-July 19, 2005

If Republicans are looking for a way to return to their principles of limited government and reduced federal spending, a good place to start would be rejection of the coming reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act sponsored by Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del. It's a mystery why Republicans continue to put a billion dollars a year of taxpayers' money into the hands of radical feminists who use it to preach their anti-marriage and anti-male ideology, promote divorce, corrupt the family court system, and engage in liberal political advocacy.

Accountability is supposed to be the watchword of the Bush administration, but there's been no accountability or oversight for the act's spending of many billions of dollars. There is no evidence that the Violence Against Women Act has benefited anyone except the radical feminists on its payroll.

The Senate Judiciary Committee, which is gearing up for a battle royal over the Supreme Court vacancy, has scheduled a hearing on the act for mid-July. It's apparently designed as a be-nice-to-Biden-before-the court-fight event, since no critic has been invited to speak.

Let's have a reality check. The Violence Against Women Act's gender-specific title is pejorative: it's based on the false, unscientific, unjust and blatantly offensive premise that men are innately violent and abusive toward women, making all women victims of men.

The president of Harvard University was publicly pilloried for months earlier this year for implying innate differences between men and women. But the act is spending a billion dollars a year to inculcate that very notion in the minds of men and women who are having marital difficulties, as well as police, prosecutors, psychologists and family court judges.

Feminists staged tantrums at the suggestion of innate math-aptitude differences between men and women, but the whole premise of the Violence Against Women Act is that men have an innate propensity to violence against women. It's not because some are bad individuals or drunks or psychologically troubled, but because men want to keep women subservient in an oppressive patriarchal society.

The Violence Against Women Act was passed using such bogus statistics as "a woman is beaten every 15 seconds" and "80 percent of fathers who seek custody of their children fit the profile of a batterer." Remember the Super Bowl hoax, the ridiculous claim that "the biggest day of the year for violence against women" is Super Bowl Sunday? It's an assertion conclusively refuted by Dr. Christina Hoff Sommers' research.

The Violence Against Women Act comes out of Andrea Dworkin's tirades of hate such as, "Under patriarchy, every woman's son is her betrayer and also the inevitable rapist or exploiter of another woman." The act comes out of Gloria Steinem's nonsense, such as "the patriarchy requires violence or the subliminal threat of violence in order to maintain itself."

Here is some mischief in act-funded activities that should be investigated in the coming Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

The act refuses to provide any help whatsoever for male victims of domestic violence. Let's hear from professor Martin Fiebert of California State University at Long Beach who compiled a bibliography of 170 scholarly investigations, 134 empirical studies and 36 analyses, which demonstrate that women are almost as physically abusive toward their partners as men.

The act encourages women to make false allegations, and then petition for full child custody and a denial of all fathers' rights to see their own children.

The act promotes the unrestrained use of restraining orders, which family courts issue on the woman's say-so. This powerful weapon (according to the Illinois Bar Journal) is "part of the gamesmanship of divorce" and virtually guarantees that fathers are expelled from the lives of their own children.

A woman seeking help from an act-funded center is not offered any options except to leave her husband, divorce him, accuse him of being a criminal and have her sons targeted as suspects in future crimes. The Violence Against Women Act ideology rejects joint counseling, reconciliation and saving marriages.

The act denies that alcohol and illegal drugs are a cause of domestic violence, a peculiar assumption contrary to all human experience. In fact, most domestic violence incidents involve those components.

The act uses a definition of domestic violence that blurs the difference between violent action and run-of-the-mill marital tiffs and arguments. Definitions of abuse can even include minor insults and refusing to help with child care or housework.

The act funds the re-education of judges and all law enforcement personnel to teach them feminist stereotypes about male abusers and female victims, how to game the system to empower women, and how to ride roughshod over the constitutional rights of men.

The act forces Soviet-style psychological re-education on men. The accused men are not given treatment for real problems, but are assigned to classes where feminists teach shame and guilt because of a vast male conspiracy to subjugate women.

The Violence Against Women Act-funded centers engage in political advocacy for feminist legislation such as the "must-arrest" laws even if there is no sign of violence and even if the woman doesn't want the man arrested, and political advocacy against non-feminist legislation such as shared parental rights.

It's time to stop the act from spending any more taxpayers' money to promote family dissolution and fatherless children.

http://www.krightsradio.com/ WHERE THE TRUTH CONTINUES.....
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted,
then used against you.
The NOW, through VAWA has established a Government approved system of wholesale "Battering" of fathers. Women join with this destructive to children element and Batter their husbands. They use deciet and issue false dometic violence claims. Use the courts to aid in emotional abuse against the father, depriving the children of him.

This pattern of battering was seen within the rise of nazi germany, and now we have it here in America. Destroying children, breaking apart families.
Lets put the "sacredness", mutual respect, love and trust back into "family". Let us encourage the "commitment" to the vows taken. Let us lower the divorce rates and curb teen pregnancy by reinstituting those principles of family, because the first and best line of defense for a child is an intact family.
A woman should conduct herself as a "lady". Simply speaking : Don't act like a "tramp in heat".  So does the right to be a "cock tease" compare to "male privilege".
Sexual restraint is a positive character trait. Monogamy is of the highest value to hold dear. 
Abuse happens from both sides. Men are not always the bad guy, women can be just as mean, vindictive, and emotionally abusive. Remember the girl in school who would cock tease a couple of guys, then get them into fighting "over" her. 
The below article is classic Radical feminist spin. what fails to be considered is that women can do wrong, can and do abuse emotionally and physically, betray with infidelity. it goes both ways.

Subject: What is Battering?

What is Battering?

Battering is a pattern of behavior used to establish power and control
over another person through fear and intimidation, often including the
threat or use of violence. Battering happens when one person believes
they are entitled to control another. Assault, battering and domestic
violence are crimes.

Definitions: Abuse of family members can take many forms. Battering may
include emotional abuse, economic abuse, sexual abuse, using children,
threats, using male privilege, intimidation, isolation, and a variety
of other behaviors used to maintain fear, intimidation and power. In all
cultures, the perpetrators are most commonly the men of the family.
Women are most commonly the victims of violence. Elder and child abuse are
also prevalent. Acts of domestic violence generally fall into one or
more of the following categories:

Physical Battering - The abuser’s physical attacks or aggressive
behavior can range from bruising to murder. It often begins with what is
excused as trivial contacts which escalate into more frequent and serious
Sexual Abuse - Physical attack by the abuser is often accompanied by,
or culminates in, sexual violence wherein the woman is forced to have
sexual intercourse with her abuser or take part in unwanted sexual
Psychological Battering -The abuser’s psychological or mental violence
can include constant verbal abuse, harassment, excessive
possessiveness, isolating the woman from friends and family, deprivation of physical
and economic resources, and destruction of personal property.
Battering escalates. It often begins with behaviors like threats, name
calling, violence in her presence (such as punching a fist through a
wall), and/or damage to objects or pets. It may escalate to restraining,
pushing, slapping, and/or pinching. The battering may include punching,
kicking, biting, sexual assault, tripping, throwing. Finally, it may
become life-threatening with serious behaviors such as choking, breaking
bones, or the use of weapons.
VAWA Violates the Civil Rights of 2,000 Americans Every Day

Equal protection under the law. Due process. Innocent until proven guilty.

Those principles, enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, are foundations of a free and just society. And those concepts are routinely violated every day by the Violence Against Women Act. Each and every day in the United States, over 2,000 Americans have their civil rights violated by VAWA.

  • These persons include over 750 male victims of severe partner assaults every day – who dont seek service because they know they will be turned away. Or worse, they fear they will be accused of the very crime that they were just subjected to.
  • These persons include over 1,250 men – and sometimes women – who are evicted from their homes on the basis of a restraining order that does not even allege violence.
  • These persons include an uncounted number of persons accused of partner assault who are unfairly arrested as a result of mandatory arrest policies.

As a result, families are broken up and children are removed from their fathers.

In short, the Violence Against Women Act represents a grave threat to persons civil rights and to the family structure of America.

On March 20, 19 organizations around the country will be coming together to launch a major public education campaign. The five-week campaign will consist of a series of Special Reports that will document:

  1. How VAWA harms families, children, men, and women
  2. How VAWA programs discriminate against male victims
  3. How restraining orders are widely abused
  4. How mandatory-arrest policies violate basic principles of justice
  5. How VAWA policies have biased the prosecution and adjudication of DV cases

For this Campaign to be successful, we will be calling on persons to pass along the Special Reports to media contacts, friends, and others. We would like to invite you to participate.
