Show 129 Book- Does Feminism Discriminate against Men? A Debate. Prager interviews author. Audio MP3  

Show 129 Dennis Prager talks to Warren Farrell, former board member of NOW and best-selling author. His new book Does Feminism Discriminate against Men?: A Debate. Book description from publisher- Does feminism give a much-needed voice to women in a patriarchal world? Or is the world not really patriarchal? Has feminism begun to level the playing field in a world in which women are more often paid less at work and abused at home? Or are women paid equally for the same work and not abused more at home? Does feminism support equality in education and in the military, or does it discriminate against men by ignoring such issues as male-only draft registration and boys lagging behind in school? The only book of its kind, this volume offers a sharp, lively, and provocative debate on the impact of feminism on men. Warren Farrell—an international best-selling author and leader in both the early women’s and current men’s movements—praises feminism for opening options for women but criticizes it for demonizing men, distorting data, and undervaluing the family. In response, James P. Sterba—an acclaimed philosopher and ardent advocate of feminism—maintains that the feminist movement gives a long-neglected voice to women in a male-dominated world and that men are not an oppressed gender in today’s America. Their wide-ranging debate covers personal issues, from love, sex, dating, and rape to domestic violence, divorce, and child custody. Farrell and Sterba also look through their contrasting lenses at systemic issues, from the school system to the criminal justice system; from the media to the military; and from health care to the workplace.

Men and feminism  

Should men be involved in feminism, and if so, how? Men are super involved in feminism these days – and there appears to be a cultural trend in getting men involved in the fight for gender equality. We’re seeing this daily: be it the UN’s HeForShe campaign which is all about this, or male celebrities like Pharrell Williams and Ashton Kutcher talking about rights for women (and of course, tennis player Andy Murray’s recent stand against casual sexism), and it seems like everyday there are articles in the world’s leading publications about all this too (a recent hit being the New York Times looking at how to raise feminist sons). It makes sense; men also need to change their attitudes and biases if we are to live in a world with gender equality, so of course they need to be part of the fight. But what about when some men mean well but end up doing more harm than good? This episode explores that. We look at male feminists – do they actually help the cause of feminism, or do they end up making everything about them, and in essence do they just talk over women, whose voices aren’t heard as much in first place? And should women ask for help from men to increase gender equality, and if so, how should they ask for this help so that it’s carried out most effectively? Or is catering the message so as not to upset men a problem in itself? We explore and untangle all this. And we also hear about the darker side too: the things that even progressive men don’t want to share publicly about their fears and resentments towards feminism… Host: Nas aka Nastaran Tavakoli-Far Guests: Anonymous male essay writer Lucy Michelle Lim, Relationship coach based in Sweden Shea Wilson, American male living in Sweden Related links: Michelle Lim www.michellelim.co Nas www.twitter.com/ntavakolifar The Gender Knot www.facebook.com/thegenderknot Jackson Katz’s Tedx talk “Violence against women, it’s a men’s issue” https://www.ted.com/talks/jackson_katz_violence_against_women_it_s_a_men_s_issue Sheila Kelley’s Tedx talk “Let’s get naked” http://tedxamericanriviera.com/sheila-kelley-lets-get-naked/ Music: Government Funded Weed by Black Ant (used under Creative Commons) Sourpatch by Glass Boy (used under Creative Commons) #men #feminism #malefeminists #gender #heforshe #genderequality

Dominanta Män har tappat sina Kulor i dagens Feminism – RFMS013  

Feminism och BDSM, är det egentligen en fungerande kombination? Debatterna har varit högljudda när det har diskuterats kring olika typer av tillställningar som bygger på Mandom, en reaktion saknar motstycke när det arrangeras tillställningar som bygger på Femdom. Dominanta män anklagas för att vara kvinnoförtryckare och vissa feminister hävdar att Mandom är ett uttryck för patriarkala strukturer och att det är sådant som dagens feminism skall motarbeta [...]

Mördaren som kändis och satanistisk feminism  

Vår kultur är genomsyrad av mord. Mord i verkligheten på tv och i kvällstidningarna, och mord som underhållning på film och i böcker. Att mörda är att gå över en absolut gräns, och mord är därför något som har en förmåga att ständigt fascinera oss. Mördarna har i många fall blivit kändisar och celebriteter som människor beundrar och skriver kärleksbrev till. Det säger Micael Dahlén, professor på Handelshögskolan i Stockholm och aktuell med sin nya bok Monster. Han har besökt fem av vår tids mest ökända mördare på tre olika kontinenter - danske Peter Lundin som mördade sin mamma och några år senare också sin sambo och hennes två barn, Wayne Lo, den förste som genomförde en så kallad skolmassaker, seriemördaren Dorothea Puentes som grävde ner sina offer i den egna trädgården, #bild=1969162#sektledaren och massmördaren Charles Manson, och så japanen Issei Sagawa som, efter att han avtjänat straffet för att ha mördat, styckat och ätit upp en holländsk kvinna, bland annat gjort sig känd som matrecensent hemma i Japan. Issei Sagawa kom senare också att stå som förebild till Hannibal Lecter i filmen När lammen tystnar.

Dessutom handlar det om satanistisk feminism. Feminister har efter århundraden av vad de uppfattar som kristen svartmålning av kvinnor som ”djävulens kön” gett Satan en ny innebörd. Satanistisk feminism är helt enkelt ett slags uppror mot ett patriarkat symboliserat av Gud fader och hans prästerskap. Det säger religionshistorikern Per Faxneld som forskar om just satanistisk feminism, och som nyligen var en av arrangörerna till en internationell satanistkonferens vid Stockholms universitet. Vi har också den satanistiska feministen Hetty från Connecticut i USA som driver sajten www. theshadowoftheblackrose.com.

Programledare är Urban Björstadius.

FDR3528 Is Feminism Evil? - Call In Show - December 9th, 2016  

Question 1: [0:00] – “It would appear that everything about feminism has undermined marriage in the West. Could it be said that feminism is evil for this reason alone, assuming that marriage is in fact necessary to keep Western (or indeed any) civilization and its traditions going? If feminism is indeed evil, then how are we to cure this evil?”

Question 2: [56:30] – “We can all agree that a 3-year-old bears no responsibility for the events in his life, while a 30-year-old bears complete responsibility for the events in his life. At what point does one become responsible for the events in one's life?”

Question 3: [1:11:58] – “It is my assessment that the left has destroyed at the very least the nuclear family and consequently gender roles by creating a nanny state. However, it seems that my dear group, the atheists have destroyed any sense of community that extends beyond family and are pushing a sort of hedonistic anarchy. It seems more and more that we need something but being an atheist, the idea of going back is akin to being asked to believe in Santa Claus again. What can we (as atheists) use as a long-term supplement?”

Question 4: [2:05:21] – “I've been listening to your show over the years and I think I've identified logical objections that Stefan has with the existence of a possible God. I don't want to make too many assumptions but the first is that he seems to believe matter is necessary for the existence of consciousness, and therefore God cannot exist because he would be immaterial by definition. Why do you think Consciousness is derived from matter?”

Rebecca Watson - Skepticism and Feminism  

Host: Chris Mooney

Our guest this week is Rebecca Watson, the founder of the Skepchick blog. Recently, she's been at the center of an explosive controversy over the relationship between feminism and the skeptic/atheist movement.

It all started when Watson made a relatively casual remark in a video to her followers. She was discussing her travels and a talk she'd given in Ireland about sexism in the atheist/skeptic community. Overall, Watson said, the response to her remarks had been great—but then she added something else. After the talk, she said, she'd received an advance from a man in an elevator—a man who apparently didn't get the message.

"Guys, don't do that," said Watson. "I was a single woman in a foreign country at 4 am in a hotel elevator with you. Just you. Don't invite me back to your hotel room right after I finish talking about how it creeps me out and makes me uncomfortable when men sexualize me in that manner."

In one way or another—and with many other debate participants involved-this story led to thousands upon thousands of blog comments, and an outpouring of support-and criticism. So Point of Inquiry asked Watson to address the controversy, and to talk more generally about atheism and feminism.

Rebecca Watson is the founder of the Skepchick blog, a co-host of the Skeptic's Guide to the Universe podcast, and a prominent speaker and commenter on skepticism, feminism, freethought, and the religious right.

Men & feminism – reactions!  

Confusion, frustration, empathy, being able to relate – just some of the reactions I received from you, the audience, to last week’s episode exploring men and feminism, where we asked whether men should get involved in feminism, and if so, how. Many female listeners unanimously related to one of the discussions last week, and I talk to two male listeners about the conversation on male feminists. This topic is huge, so I’ll be following it up in a few weeks’ time. Send me your thoughts and experiences at thegenderknot@gmail.com or message me via the Facebook page. Also, check out the fantastic podcast Fine and Dandy with Dan and Andy. This podcast is all about these questions! Comedians Daniel Carroll and Andy Haynes are straight-white-cis-American men, and they try to figure out how to be better men, in terms of gender, race, privilege, and much more! It’s a fun listen, while also tackling important topics with fantastic guests. Subscribe to their show via iTunes or the link below, and join their journey of figuring it out too!

Ep 129 #CopOnComrades : Men & Feminism  

The episode was intended as a general discussion about men and feminism in the wake of the visit by feminist Canadian President Justin Trudeau. With Taoiseach Leo Varadkar also declaring himself a feminist, three men were invited in to discuss the feminist credentials of both leaders and the challenges of the feminist debate for men. The guests were Patrick Freyne, an Irish Times features journalist who identifies as feminist, Mark Paul is an Irish Times business journalist who believes men can often feel alienated from the debate and writer Frankie Gaffney, who wrote an article in this newspaper recently about identity politics which caused controversy and spawned the hashtag #coponcomrades. In the end the episode was dominated by that controversy, about class, feminism and privilege with both host Kathy Sheridan and Freyne taking issue with much of Gaffney's article. If you've any thoughts on what in the end was a heated debate contact us on @itwomenspodcast or thewomenspodcast@irishtimes.com

FDR3666 I Don’t Want To Be A Pirate - Call In Show - April 26th, 2017  

Question 1: [2:13] – “Given that energy cannot be created or destroyed, does it not make sense that our essence or soul continues after physical death, and can reincarnate to continue the necessary learning process to advance our understanding of the universe and what might be outside of it? In short: Do you believe in reincarnation? And, would you please elaborate on why you do or do not?”

Question 2: [41:58] – “I believe I've heard you mention that courage is the highest virtue. I'm an Evangelical Christian and as such I would make the case that Biblically speaking love is the highest virtue. If you don't believe that love is the highest virtue, why?”

Question 3: [1:23:50] – “Being Black and conservative has been a lonely life in my experience. I am 38 now and married, but without children of my own. I was brought up in a 2-parent household with a strong father (God rest his soul) and I was raised not to have children out of wedlock, and to not get involved with any man that had children. I have had many relationships and the only time I had a child I lost him in March of 2015 at 21 weeks and I was married at the time. I still want children and I would like to discuss the underlying issues I have had as a black conservative on why I am having children late. I feel that my conservatism has had a big role in why I have not had a husband nor any children until late in life and would love to expound upon it for it is something that is rarely discussed. Am I doing a disservice now if I want to have children by the time I am 40?”

Question 4: [1:47:14] – “Stefan and many callers often talk about teaching philosophy to children. I understand that this is possible and desirable and I can imagine that a 12 year old, for instance, can really benefit from more or less formal education in logic. With my own children being aged 3 and 5 currently, I want to ask Stefan about when and how, ideally, an education in philosophy should begin and proceed?”

Question 5: [2:15:04] – “Recently I read an article written by a feminist in which she states that women should not be permitted to raise their children full-time, because "equality." Since we already know that women overwhelmingly prefer to bring up their children as opposed to working outside the home, the argument seems to be that feminism is not about what women want. What possible value, then, does feminism hold for women, if it sacrifices their real preferences for an ideological objective that makes most women miserable? Who benefits? If feminism is not about what women want, is it not utterly worthless, especially to women?”

Question 6: [2:37:31] – “I am in a relationship with an incredible woman. She is beautiful, intelligent, virtuous, fun and passionate. She embraces her femininity and respects my masculinity. She supports me in all my endeavors, and relishes being a perfect homemaker. The only problem is that she wants to get married and have children. As soon as I realized that this desire wouldn't go away, I told her that she must proceed with our relationship knowing that those things will never happen. It was very hard for her to accept, but she stayed. The only thing she asked in return was that I keep an open mind. It's been about a year since that conversation, and my opinion regarding children hasn't changed yet I feel her maternal instinct intensifying. It increasingly manifests itself in conversations and daily affairs, and sometimes I can't help but seriously consider letting her go. She's young, but nevertheless she is still on the clock. I love her enough to not deprive her of what I can now see is her greatest value, which is being a mother one day. How can I clear my thinking so I can make the right decision?”
