A while ago I asked for instances of feminists threatening or actually inflicting violence, and I got some good examples. I asked this because one of the most popular slurs against the men’s movement is that MRAs are all violent and hate women and want to inflict all this violence against them.
The Sly Inversion – If no one making these accusations can point to one instance of this actually happening, all they have to do is mischaracterize things MRAs say or misidentify people who commit violent acts as MRAs. Then they can just lean back and count on gender sterotypes to give their accusations all the credibility they need. That’s the kind of progressive gender warriors they are after all, blasting all those patriarchal gender norms to smithereens.
The physical violence feminists resort to disrupt MHRM events in Toronto and their vandalism against free speech in Vancouver are old news. Here is some new news – dear old Anita Sarkeesian, that trembling victim of internet threats and harassment, is trafficking in violent murder fantasies aginst male “enemy”.
They are not shy about using pressure and physical violence when it comes to policing women either. There’s that bright shining group of idealists, FEMEN, that are currently all the rage in morally fashionable circles. Here they are physically assaulting a stripper because she’s naked for money, which is evil collaboration with the Patriarchy, in contrast to their own high-minded, idealistic public nudity which of course is just a tactic of the revolution.
A few weeks ago I asked for examples of feminists making violent threats or engaging in actual physical violence. I got a quite a haul:

I remember a female student in South Australia who released an essay on female perpetrators who was threatened and shot at by feminists. I was threatened by feminist lecturers at Murdoch Uni in Perth Western Australia for the same reason. Was also called in several times by one lecturer who warned me that my career would be ruined by feminists as she had been threatened with this for daring to question feminist theories when she was younger.

No documentary evidence but I’ve had several incidents relating to admitting victimisation by a woman. As recently as November last year I was threatened with violence because I was overheard talking to a friend about my childhood experience at the hands of my aunt. In the late nineties at a political party meeting I was punched in the face by a woman. The state’s sexual assault laws were being amended at that time partly to allow for the existence of female perpetrated abuse but the feminst element thought it unnecessary. My mention of my aunt’s actions resulted in the woman concerned yelling “women don’t do that” and then lashing out. I wore a bruise on my left cheek for a couple of weeks whilst passing it off as a basketball injury.

To add…the incident last year was fifty metres up the street from a white ribbon event.
Of course. Victim cred is a strategic resource and it will be defend at all costs. No menz can ever be victims, and especially not when women’s victimhood is being celebrated.

Philip Wylie got lots of death threats for a chapter in his book “Generation of Vipers” mostly due to the chapters on women and momism. He said if he had to do it over he wouldn’t have written the book for the harrassment he and other members of his family received.
Good book that seems lost to the ages.
And Tamen tells us Pelle Billing, as moderate and sane a voice as the gender debate has seen in a long time, has withdrawn due to threats.
And this is not some recent development. This goes back to Lorena Bobbitt ( and the way Glenn Close was lionized for her role in Fatal Attraction).

Oh, come on, we just had the 20th anniversary of the Lorena Bobbitt incident, and no one mentioned this?
“Finally, it was time for Mrs. Bobbitt’s trial for maliciously wounding her husband. Much of the nation, and beyond, watched intently with sympathies split largely along gender lines. In Ecuador, Lorena Bobbitt’s home country, the National Feminist Association called several news organizations to announce that if Mrs. Bobbitt went to prison for mutilating her husband, 100 innocent American men would be castrated (it is not clear if they really meant ‘castration,’ which generally means removal of the testicles, or if they meant they would slice off 100 innocent penises). The organization also staged a large protest outside the U.S. consulate.
Not a recent development, not by any means. It turns out suffragettes, in their social-parasite-useless-for-any-kind-of-physical-labor modes of dress with their ladified airs, were not above the occasional death threat. From the History of Feminism we have this:
Attempted Murder by Suffragettes
It is universally acknowledged by historians that the suffragettes engaged in numerous terrorist acts, including attempted murder. One such case was the attempt on the life of Sir Henry Curtis Bennett, the chief magistrate for Bow Street who had tried Emmeline Pankhurst, as well as other leading feminists, for acts of terrorism such as setting fire to property and assaulting police officers. The story is recounted below by the Montreal Gazette published on June 04, 2013, and also describes the recent burning by suffragettes of Eaton Boats intended for the Royal Henley Regatta.
Clearly when it comes to physical violence, feminsts have form. It almost looks inherent to the movement.
And please offer any more examples you may have.
