.“Theresa May. has decided to tackle domestic violence. Her Rhetoric however does not bode well for those of us fighting for sexual freedom and decriminalisation of sex work. It reeks of feminist propaganda.

Domestic violence is a real problem. It destroys lives and it destroys families. Domestic violence and bullying is an often dark secret within families.
Domestic violence however is not just about male violence against women. Domestic violence is not gender specific. Theresa May has made a huge mistake when she tackles domestic violence a part of the feminist rhetoric that persists in making the woman the victim and the man the perpetrator of violence.
The same powerful and multi million dollar industry that perpetuates the feminist agenda that men are always violent perpetrators and women are powerless victims, the same rhetoric that influences lazy government ministers in attitudes toward sex work, is to seen to be at work in Theresa May’s announcements today.
Theresa May is to allow women to call fowl on their husbands and male partners by informing the police that
they are victims of domestic abuse. The police then have the power to arbitrarily ban the male partner from the family home. It does not take much imagination to understand how this will be used within families to increase tension and perhaps by spouses to intimidate and threaten. How will children feel to see their fathers removed and forbidden contact on the word of their mother?
Once again the truth is being ignored both by ministers and by the media who both prefer easy headlines that play to prejudice. The facts are that within cases of domestic violence it is usual that both partners are equally violent, not just the man. Women are as violent as men and against other women worse.

Theresa May is playing to public prejudice and misconceptions and the consequences will be broken families and broken lives and domestic violence will continue in secret. When will the government learn that as with sex work creating badly thought out laws that pander to ideological propaganda rather than reflecting the reality of the experiences of the people involved will only lead to misery.

Not good Theresa. Not good at all.

.“Erin Pizzey. who founded the first womans refuge in 1971 said and wrote:

The feminist movement everywhere had hi-jacked the whole issue of domestic violence to fulfil their political ambitions and to fill their pockets. I marvelled at the organisation and the amounts of money that were floating about. [13] Under cover of the shelter movement which gave them funding and accommodation to wage their gender war against men, they began to disseminate misleading information. [14] I watched the feminist movement build its bastions of hatred against men. Fortresses where women were to be taught that all men were ‘rapists and bastards’ and the destruction of the children in the refuge. I watched the ‘consciousness raising groups’ designed to brain wash women into believing that their husbands were the enemy and must be eradicated. I saw fathers of children denied their rights and persecuted. Judicial neutrality and individual rights are declared to be patriarchal fictions. [15] Feminism, I realised, was a lie. Women and men are both capable of extraordinary cruelty. Indeed, the only thing a child really needs – two biological parents under one roof – was being undermined by the very ideology which claimed to speak up for women’s rights. [16] Those women who love their husbands, partners and sons must join with the men’s movement in seeing that anti male legislation never gets passed. This is our last chance to right a horrendous wrong. Millions of men and their children have suffered in the hands of this evil feminist movement. The time has come for men and women to say: NO TO FEMINISM. [17]

Between Theresa May and a bunch of over paid career feminists I know whom I would listen to when it comes to issues of domestic violence.

About Douglas Fox

    I’m sorry, Douglas, but I have to disagree with Ms. Prizzey about “evil feminism”. While I disagree with what is called “radical feminism”, I still consider myself a feminist.

    So no, I’m not going to participate in Ms. Prizzey’s crusade against women.

    I also consider myself a feminist.

    I think Prizzey’s concern is the simple polarisation ie women weak and men bad which seems to be the message from many womens groups.
    I think that like myself she is concerned about the multi million pound industry that feminism has become with organisations often supported by public funding who push a particular ideology that wants to silence any dissent.
    We see this in the sex worker rights debate where groups like Poppy who are a charity supported primarily by the tax payer. Poppy take an anti sex worker stance and are not surprisingly very influential with the very ministers who provide thier funding.
    Similarly in the domestic violence debate we are fed this idea that women are the victims always.
    Prizzey who has spent t alife time working with these “victims” rejects this simplification of a very real problem.
    My view is that with issues like sex work and domestic violence we have to stop scapegoating and instead look at holistic and humanist approaches that listen to the people involved. The huge feminist industry that Prizzey criticises does not do this. What it does is present a simplistic ideological position that panders to simplistic stereotypes rather than deal with the real problems.

    I think Prizzey suggests that as a society we re think how we deal with issues like domestic violence.
    As a feminists man I also argue that feminism needs to re evaluate its position which is why I tend to use the term organic feminism.
    I understand organic feminism to be a non ideological movement that tries to understand the human experience by asking the simple question WHY and then working on a solution based on the problem.
    This approach is much harder but in my opinion it is the only way that we can find real and lasting solutions to very serious issues like domestic violence.
