Laura "Unmasking Feminism" got under my skin

Recommended Posts

I do think that Laura from Unmasking Feminism is a very sad person. She always sounds so sad. At one point, she encouraged women to think of themselves as "small and dirty." How depressing is that?

However, tonight's post pissed me off. I should warn you that it might be triggering even to read about it.

She posts a news article about a father who was in a custody battle with his wife over their three-year old son. So he throws the son off the top of the building. The son survives, but dies later. The cowardly murdering father kills himself by jumping off a building, too. Terrible, terrible story.

What does Laura title her post? "Fuck. This is why we needs men's rights."

Apparently, men's rights would have prevented this problem. How, I do not know. Because the wife would be unable to file for divorce? Because all children would automatically go to the father's custody? Because the man would be allowed to beat his wife into submission?

I don't get the point of the anti-feminist vs feminist cartoon she posts. Firstly, there are plenty of feminists out there who wear pretty dresses, drink cocktails and have nice computers, and secondly I'd think the anti-feminist wouldn'twear that dress because it would be deemed immodest, wouldn't drink because it's not ladylike, and wouldn't have an "opple" computer because she wouldn't be allowed to express herself.

Fuck that shit. In a custody dispute, the only rights that matter are the rights of the child. Anybody who is so unstable and violent that they think killing their toddler is the solution is clearly an unfit parent and should not have custody or unsupervised visitation until and unless they get their mental issues under control.

And without reading more on the case, I still think I can say with reasonable certainty that this move didn't come out of nowhere. Reasonable people, no matter how unhappy or depressed, do not kill their children. If the custody dispute was that acrimonious, that has got to have been a contributing factor.

I just finished having a peek at her site before coming here, and was about to create a topic about that very post because it pissed me right the hell off, too!!

We need men's rights so that, what?.... so that men don't dash their "property" to pieces when they're not getting their own way?

From what I remember (someone correct me if I'm wrong), the father didn't lose custody because he wasn't violent towards the child. However, he told the mother that he would take the child away from her, and make her so grief-stricken that she would kill herself. It definitely did not come out of nowhere.

From what I have read, this was the father's first unsupervised visit that was allowed, so obviously it didn't come out of the blue. :(

Horrific.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.
